    Well I knew some guys were on the forum. So I wasn't trying to point anyone out or come across that way.

    But here we go: Tosin Abasi, Misha Mansoor, Nick Johnston, Plini, Andre Nieri (Virgil Donati), Chris Letchford (Scale The Summit), Jason Richardson (Ex Born of Osiris). Guys like that.

    Thanks for the answers so far guys!
    If anyone has any prayer requests, need to talk, or have questions about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    Feel free to message me.

    And they all seem to get there in like a year. It's amazing how fast they're picked by this stuff up these days.

    But like you said, technique-wise it's great, but that's where it ends. I don't remember anything or even have a vague sense of enjoyment, other than feeling like I sat through a warmup session.

    I can agree with that. Angel definitely has personality.

    Nowadays, if you give older dudes an opportunity to say 'it was better in my day', they always will, regardless of whether it was or not. It never used to be like that, though...

    It's the Michael Jordan syndrome

    Yes he is. Very much so.

    He's one of those guys who can change into various styles and do it well.

    There are plenty of guitarists making amazing music both in and out of the metal scene. I will admit Technical ability isn't all that important to most consumers or musicians anymore so it's more rare you have that really beautiful combination of skill and creativity like Vai, but there are quite a few pulling it off. There are also plenty of guitarists who play fairly unoriginal music but still have a great sound/personality. (Ola is a great example) . The main thing to me that has changed in modern years in the music scene is the fact that being internet saavy and business minded plays a much bigger role in shrinking local music scenes, so even though there are more talented musicians than ever, it can be hard to find them off of youtube.
