COMPETITION: Shred this! Top 5

If you entered the competition, I'm still accepting your top 5's, always eager to see what you think and also to allow you to praise other who you thought were excellent.

OK we've short listed to show our top 5 picks... this has been really tough... lots of heart ache as we have to decide who will go through for selection for the top 3. We've redrawn the lists on numerous occasions, discussed why we did or did not like particular aspects of playing. Even to the point of asking "Would definitely pay to see that player?" questions.

I can speak for us all when I say this was a super tough task, everyone could have been in the top 5, but we had to lose 10, as you can see I had some guys and girls that I would love to have had in the top 5 but there can only be 5. The results are posted here... in no particular order... let the flaming and hate mail begin.

  1. I think they are very fair selections. My top 5 was very similar

  2. I think the SOUND, and so the touch, should be a more important parameter to define the final 5..it can't be all about speed and licks, everybody gets there, few have a decent sound on guitar...and i'm not talkin' about GEAR but vibrato and bending kinda things!

  3. Alessandra funaro has got the most unique style!

  4. We all know why Alessandra's made it, and it has nothing to do with the content of her playing.

  6. re Alessandra, I think you do Alex an injustice. Don't look at the video just listen to the guitar. A great fit for the backing track, well played

  8. Laurie, thanks for the "honorable mention". I agree with your Top 5 most out of the 3 (as you already know), but that doesn't mean Alessandra's and Derek's didn't also rock! Best of luck to everyone!
