Shred master Michael Angelo Batio is one heck of a dynamic guitar player. Known for his neoclassical shredding and ambidextrous style, he is becoming a widely recognized guitarist. He got voted in publications like Guitar World Magazine, as the fastest guitar player. He even draws a lot of influence from not only the classics of rock music: Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jeff Beck, but even all kinds of music like jazz musicians like George Benson and Django Reinhardt. A video is here of Batio talking about his musical interests.
