English rockers Francis Rossi and the late Rick Parfitt of Status Quo fame. Mention those names here in the states, and most likely you'll be greeted with a blank stare.

My thoughts in order of how I thought them:
Oh cool B.C. Rich!
Oh cool red PRS single cut.
Oh cool breasts.
Why does she have CDs on her wall?

But on a serious note, I though she burnt out in the first minute, she got right into the shreddy stuff without much build-up and the first third of the video left me feeling like there wasn't much reason to keep watching. This is an issue with alot of shredders, they get into the fast shred too quickly, before you get much warning.

I think a good example of shred done right is Surfing With the Alien (the album in general, but right now I'm talking about the song) The vast majority of the song is Satch playing melodies and fast, yet brief, runs to embelish the melody, building up to the faster tapping and shred stuff towards the end of the song.

But I did watch the whole thing, and good God I was blown away by the clean section! It really was quite awesome. I'd like to have seen more of that towards the start of the song as a build up into the distorted parts. But I thought it was enjoyable overall, and she had some very tastey licks in there. :dude

Ted Nugent....
I was going to reply with him, but he is quite popular.

I think he has just about the fame he deserves. He had his day, like other bands, and doesn't get the spotlight as much anymore, but his fans are dedicated and he obviously made enough money touring to buy up almost all of the worlds Gibson Byrdlands!

And anyways, how many "not popular" people play with ZZ Top? (and at presidential rallies in 2016. I'm not talking politics just saying that was something he did)

I get what they mean. Ted is popular, but he rarely gets talked about for how much of a bad ass guitarist he is. His rhythm and lead playing great, and he can shred his ass off when he needs/wants to, yet he rarely gets mentioned for such.

I picked Ted Nugent as a “not popular” guitarist more for the fact that he is literally not popular to a lot of people for his political views and persona. Just a little twist on the concept. He’s always been a badass guitarist IMO.
