Cunty Wunty Woo-Woo
Ok, as any self-respecting guitar enthusiast will know, Yngwie Malmsteen released his "Relentless" album in November 2010. It contained shredding of the kind that is only found on Yngwie's records (and if it's found anywhere else, it's only because they ripped off Yngwie), however Yngwie has not been nominated in the Shredder category for an award. This is ridiculous, I mean, Synyster Gates (or Brian Haner Jr. to give him his real name) was nominated, and Yngwie could play circles around that guy. YJM is the godfather of shred guitar, and has been at the sharp end of lead guitar technique for nearly 30 years. It doesn't seem fair that he isn't getting the recognition he deserves...
