Sometimes the simple catches the ear.. It's not how fast or the runs.
Example Stevie Vai is a brilliant guitar player but not my cup of tea. just really quick fingers applied to runs that get confusing IMHO

i agree 100%. I wasnt trying to say that fast and technical was the measure of a great guitarist. quite frankly, slow with good feel is way better to me but the guys I posted are superb at what they do and they use totally original tricks and methods.
