Check out Lean Into It by Mr Big. Featuring great technical picking from Paul Gilbert it also showcases many of these styles in a more melodic context. Fast guitar playing doesn’t have to be rock: Al Di Meola’s Elegant Gypsy owes a great deal to flamenco styles. Finally,listen to Eric Johnson on Ah Via Musicom. Eric weaves melodic lines that catch the ear and the imagination, especially Cliffs Of Dover.
