Guitar World: 50 Fastest Guitarists Of All Time. - Avenged Sevenfold

Guitar World: 50 Fastest Guitarists Of All Time.

Guitar World have named their “50 Fastest Guitarists Of All Time.” Synyster Gates made the list with the signature song “Eternal Rest.”

Synyster Gates
SIGNATURE SONG: “Eternal Rest”
ALBUM: Waking the Fallen (AVENGED SEVENFOLD)

It’s easy for critics to dismiss Avenged Sevenfold because they look like a bunch of emo-punk kids who raided Axl Rose’s wardrobe, but no other band has done as much to introduce Generation Y to the shock and awe of a brilliant guitar solo. Justin Timberlake may be bringing sexy back, but Synyster Gates brought almighty shred to the forefront with his numerous extended no-holds-barred solos on A7X’s albums. A GIT graduate, Gates is a surprisingly versatile guitarist influenced by players ranging from Django to Dimebag.

Thanks Heather for sending this in.
