Are metal guitarists better (or worse!) than ever?

The great debate…

Are the metal guitarists of today better than ever? Ryan Wolanski tries to answer that question in this video essay.

A few of the things Ryan touches on:

  • Artists like Jason Richardson (Chelsea Grin, Born Of Osiris), Polyphia, and Tosin Abasi of Animals As Leaders who push metal guitar to new levels
  • Frank Gambale and the rise of sweep picking
  • The role of new tools like Guitar Pro and DAW editing
  • A look at greats from the past like Jason Becker and Michael Angelo Batio of Nitro
