theres a time and place for everything , Heres something you young uns will find funny Alvin lee of ten years after was at one time considered the fastest guitarist in rock, I know of you dudes never heard of him but do your self a favor check him out , But as fast as he was he could flat out make the guitar cry.

there are still players which didnt get caught by the " as fast as you can go no matter what it costs" hype. very good to know
