    Love Petrucci, love that tune. Aside from the vomit-inducing camera angle switching, that's a great vid.

    Not too fond of his more recent playing, but early '90s Petrucci is killer. Intense, melodic playing.

    I agree, DT's first few cd's are incredible.
    Could not get into the last few.

    He's in my top 10 or top 15. Not so much for speed or technical, which he definitly has, but for his melodic stuff. He can be an extremely emotive player.

    I really like all his playing with DT, but do NOT dig his trio stuff. This includes his most recent playing with G3. Too over the top, and just not as melodic to my ears as the stuff he does with DT.

    Amazing player with amazing skills. A truly great athlete on the instrument.​

    Really great player- don't really like DT a hell of a lot, but I appreciate what they do.

    Thanks to Petrucci's exercises and tutorials I have greatly increased the speed and accuracy of my picking hand. I used to rely on hammer ons and pull offs for my shredding, but now I am more able to pick everything. Of coarse, I owe some credit to Zakk Wylde for this improvement too. I enjoy Petrucci's playing on the albums Awake, 6 degrees of Inner Turbulance, and Train of Thought (amazing shredding on this album!).

    Petrucci is the man! He and DT have kept the prog rock/metal flame burning for many years. The level of musicianship in the band is amazing to listen to and watch.

    His two man live album with Jordan Rudess -- An Evening With . . . -- was phenomenal!

    I like The Liquid Tension Experiment the best.

    As for Dream Theatre, I really like Awake.
