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: “17th Century Chicken Pickin’ ”
ALBUM: Screaming Symphony
It’s easy to dismiss Chris Impellitteri as another in a long line of Yngwie clones, especially since he plays neoclassical metal on a Stratocaster with a scalloped fretboard and he hired former Alcatrazz singer Graham Bonnet to front his band.
But anyone who looks past Impellitteri’s hyperspeed sweeppicked harmonic minor scales will notice incendiary chromatic lines rivaling the precision and intensity of Steve Morse and bluesy phrasing that gives his playing distinct character.
Impellitteri enjoys an impressive devoted following in Japan, where he still appears on the cover of guitar magazines.
