Yngwie hasn't improved because his focus is limited and there's only so far a given person can increase in a given direction. If you're myopic in approach, you only improve within the limits of that approach.

I've listened to as much Malmsteen as Floyd in terms of quantity, but in terms of frequency I consistently go back to the latter and discard the former. There's a good reason for that: Malmsteen isn't terribly interesting, and the only thing that made him interesting (that he could shred better than most guitarists who weren't involved in fusion) has long since disappeared, as he's surpassed by a whole new generation of much more technically proficient guitarists, some of whom even have interesting ideas. But I'll take Gilmour over most of them, too. And it's not just 'he can play one note with soul;' it has more to do with phrasing.

People who haven't been mentioned:
Robert Fripp
Adrian Belew
Buddy Guy
John Mclaughlin
Alex Lifeson
Trey Spruance
Pat Metheny
Albert King
Mark Ribot
Frank Zappa
Duane Allman
Warren Haynes
Hubert Sumlin
Ritchie Blackmore

I think that's enough for now.



this is the only intelligent thing ive read in this whole thread. malmsteen is amazing, we all know this... but he bores the fuck outta me when he makes an album that uses the same harmonic minor patterns over and over... just like the last 5 albums.

Malmsteen is highly accomplished... and highly BORING!!!

alex lifeson and frank zappa

Willie Nelson. Seriously.

And about this whole shred vs. soul shit. What's more important? Being impressive or being memorable?

I agree, Vai is technically amazing, but I don't really like his tunes much.

What about Tom Morello? OK not great but he did some interesting stuff.
