Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of a new music video from Ozzy Osbourne/Firewind guitarist Gus G — "I Am the Fire," featuring Devour The Day. The track is from Gus' solo debut, I Am The Fire, which will be released March 18 via Century Media Records.
The song, which is from Batio's new album, Intermezzo, was written by Batio and features guest appearances — and guitar solos — by George Lynch, Elliott Dean Rubinson (Uli Jon Roth, Michael Schenker), Jeff Loomis (Conquering Dystopia, Nevermore), Craig Godly (Dio), Dave Reffett (Shredding The Envelope), Andrea Martongelli (Arthemis) and Rusty Cooley (Day Of Reckoning).
As some of you out there might know by now, we enjoy sharing YouTube videos of guitarists who claim to be the "world's fastest guitarist." Mind you, we don't have a hand in declaring anyone the fastest, or the slowest/kindest/worst dressed, etc. We just get a kick out of watching these guys play — and we hope you feel the same way.
These videos are bonus content related to the April 2014 issue of Guitar World. For the full range of interviews, features, tabs and more, pick up the new issue on newsstands now or at our online store.
Combining decades of experience with advanced measurement and analysis, the V-Type has been built using a carefully balanced "recipe" of old and new design techniques.

The fourth finger is often neglected when it comes to playing guitar. Well, rock/blues guitar, at least.

This generally begins when someone first starts playing guitar.
