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.
SIGNATURE SONG: “Orange Blossom Special”
ALBUM: Johnny Hiland
Ten years after the untimely death of Danny Gatton, Johnny Hiland emerged with an album released by Steve Vai’s Favored Nations label chock full of impressive country/rockabilly/blues/jazz/rock performances that rivaled those of the Telemaster himself.
Hiland has since broken into the extremely competitive Nashville studio scene, playing on sessions for high profile A-list artists like Toby Keith, Ricky Skaggs and Randy Travis. Like Gatton, Hiland’s playing is as tasteful as it is flashy, displaying an uncanny knack for melody even as he burns up the fretboard at light speed.
