Inspired by replying to a thread on best rock guitarists who do you guys reckon are the ones to watch for?

My vote goes for Andy James from the UK:

I reckon he would have been blinding as Ozzy's new axeman...

I don't have a clue if these guys are unknown or not to a wider audience, but I've only discovered them recently:

Wow, haven't been here at Vai.com forums for ages. Did a little search on "Mr. Fastfinger" and found this. Mr. Shredded Hear I feel very proud (yet humble) that you would put Mr. Fastfinger list. Thanks! By the way Steffen S. was totally new and great find to me.

on behalf of Mr. Fastfinger,
Mika
