amazing players you can't stand to hear or see play.
Most "shred" stuff holds my interest for a few songs before gradually boring me once I've seen all the chops the guy has to offer. Satriani, and to some extent, Eric Johnson, are probably two exceptions that offer (to my tastes) musicality that can keep me listening.
I really don't like Jack White's lead playing. To me, it's out of control and unrefined/overly raw...just not my kind of playing.
Um, none. I like amazing players even if it's a genre or style I'm not super into. I like guitars and guitar-driven music, and seeing people who are great at what they do is inspiring.
From another angle, I can't listen to many "bedroom shredders on youtube," but it's because they're not great (by and large, there are certainly exceptions). In many cases their rhythm sucks, they're sloppy, their vibrato sucks, they have no sense of musicality and terrible tone. It's why (or because) they're bedroom shredders, not professionals. It's not the genre of music, it's the player.
