I'm a guitarist and usually don't get into the shredders much but...holy hell I had to pick up Eric Johnson's Austin City Limits live disc. His touch is just phenomenal. I have no idea how he makes every note sound like it's 1,000 pounds. Total 80's wince factor with the hair and the goofy suit. Actually my favorite song is "Trail of Tears" which he does a surprisingly good vocal job on. Like "Cliffs of Dover" meets the Police.

Not a big Jimi guy, or most classic rock. Was a huge Zep fan growing up though. Kind of have to be if you're a rock drummer/guitarist.

Also dig Paul Gilbert, pretty dang tasteful for a shredder.
