Need for Speed: The 50 Fastest Guitarists of All Time
GW exceeds the legal limit with this roundup of the 50 fastest masters of the fretboard.
Al Di Meola
SIGNATURE SONG “Race with the Devil on Spanish Highway”
ALBUM: Elegant Gypsy
A blizzard of dotted 32nd notes in the shape of an Italian-American guy from New Jersey, Al Di Meola was one of the premier guitar architects of the jazz rock fusion genre that started in the Seventies. He’s responsible for bringing the rich guitar heritage of Spain and Latin America into the fusion arena.
His lightning-fast left hand is complemented by distinctive right-hand palmmuting techniques that some Seventies wags were fond of describing as “that rubberband sound.” Di Meola’s work with Chick Corea’s Return to Forever, his solo efforts and collaborations with fellow guitar legends John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia have considerably raised the standard of excellence for both acoustic and electric guitar performance.
