    Seems like most of these guys are trying to sound like satriani or vai... which are cool in their own respect... but not really my thing.

    Unbelievable playing. I'm not a shred guy by any means, but that kid is tearing it up with unbelievable intensity.

    Listened to both of those clips, and IMHO, I don't think their phrasing or ideas are anywhere near as mature as the first guy's post. They are certainly less busy, but I think many people forget that there is such a thing as MUSICAL shredding. I really think the first guy's got it, IMO. To each his own, though.

    I don't think Gottardo sounds like either, he's got his own thing. He made it to the finals last year, and I hope he can go all the way to the top this time.

    I like new guitarists who don't sound like every other guy out there, which is why I like Gottardo.

    I got his CD last night and it is awesome. A lot of different styles on there...all of them very well done. It's under $10 ON Amazon... a steal.
