Ok guys, Thought i would start one of these threads for the less " in the know " people around.

This is a great thread to see what great things some artists are doing.... at some time.

Anyways, heres my first entry, and please if anyone would like to submit an album they are passionate about. please go ahead.

Racer-x --- Technical difficulties

http://yukikawa.picot.ne.jp/racerx.jpg

As a shredhead, I rather enjoy this album. After all, it's the return of the mighty Racer X, a band that has always represented all things shred. And let me tell you, they still do as their latest release, Technical Difficulties is nothing short of a skull-crushing display of shred mastery.

The Performance: Let me start off by saying that every single performer on this record wails!! Paul Gilbert, whose solo career has been more pop-oriented returns to his shred roots, and believe me, it was worth the wait. Gilbert's guitar work seems like it could have been sped-up, but it's not, he's just that damn good! Drummer Scott Travis is just unbelievable. It's no wonder Judas Priest snatched him up ? he's the kind of drummer that can define, or re-define, the sound of a band. Vocalist Jeff Martin is at his Halford-sounding best, and dare I say that he sounds better on this album than he ever has. His voice has matured and his range has expanded, thus making him a better all around singer. Bassist John Alderete is another bona-fide shredder who makes his presence known throughout the album. And the result of all these guys playing together has the impact of a nuclear blast.

The Songs: Technical Difficulties features a stellar collection of shred-oriented metal tunes. They are also well-written, and very catchy songs that allow room for solos galore. Highlights include "Fire Of Rock", "Technical Difficulties", "Bolt In My Heart" and "B.R.O." which is Paul Gilbert's awesome rendition of Bach.

The Production: The production is generally good as all the instruments shine. I really liked Scott Travis' drum sound. The bass could have been more prominent at times.

The Bottom Line: This is ESSENTIAL for all you shredheads. Between Paul Gilbert's shred wizardry and Scott Travis' heart-pounding drums, Racer X delivers! Pick it up!

Steve Vai - The Infinitive Steve Vai : An Anthology
http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B0000TGA6E.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg
This 2 disc set spans the career of the god father of shred and arguabley the best guitarist alive today. A selection of Vai's best work can keep you entertained for 1:20 if you listen to each disc consecutively. A great compilation and a perfect introduction to Vai's work.

JASON BECKER - Perpetual Burn
Becker plays all lead, rhythm, and bass guitars and keyboards, with guest solos from Marty Friedman and Atma Anur on drums, both former members of Cacophony.
This album kicks total ass, one of my favour tracks is 'Air', if you don't know it check out Beckers website, its well worth it.

RITCHIE KOTZEN - Ritchie Kotzen
Koztens first solo album before he joined Poison, which is a weird fusion album, a shred must, it is a bit crazy but its cool. Jason Becker is the producer too so you can't go wrong.

and i can't be really bothered to mention in detail Reb Beach, Doug Aldridge, Malmsteen and so on... some one else can

Good choice but Vai's not the Godfather of shred seeing that when Satriani first started teaching him, Vai didn't even know a G chord from an E.

Refuse/Resist
08-01-2004, 03:37 PM
^ I wouldn't say something that I'd made up, what would be the point? Satriani was Vai's first teacher. I read in an interview with Satch that he believed Vai had benifited more from his teaching than Kirk Hammett, because Hammett was in Exodus at the time but Vai was a complete beginner.

P.S I respect Vai as a guitarist and have the infinite SV anthology that you suggested so don't get the wrong idea- a good choice

Surfing With The Alien - It is the essential shred album. And it's absolutley flawless, a perfect album. Mettalic riffing, crazy, mind-bending, liquid solos and just crazy creativity. My favorite effort from Satch, and that says alot since Satch is my favorite recording artist of all time. :cheers:

I recommend Liquid Tension Experiment 2. With Petrucci (guitar) and Rudess (keys) sharing the lead parts, this is definitely a musical wonder and should be picked up ASAP.

The lineup:
Mike Portnoy - drums
Tony Levin - bass
John Petrucci - guitars
Jordan Rudess - keyboards

G3 Live In Denver DVD. Remarkably cheap - only $12 US when I bought it. Highlights are Vai's 'I Know You're Here' and the G3 Jam section, particularly Little Wing :)

Overall, this DVD is a must-have. 6 stars out of 5!

ummm, Hammet isnt a shredder, hes labeled shred by people whove never heard shred, and think hes the fastest thing on the planet... which he isnt.

megadeth (NOT megadeath) come close to both progressive and shred on the rust in peace album... theyre not dream theater or anything, but its pretty progressive... its still trash, but it can be progressive. As for shred, megadeth had Marty Friedman, and that guy can shred. Too bad Jason Becker isnt able to play guitar (or anything else for that matter), but he was amazing, and him and Marty were a great team. Go Speed Metal Symphony!!!

Okay, I'm gonna list some that haven't been mentioned yet.

Vinnie Vincent Invasion (debut album)
This album has always been one of my favorites. It took me awhile to get used to the high pitched vocals.

Vince Neil - Exposed Steve Stevens (ex-Billy Idol guitarist) shreds on this album. If you find it, get it.

Dio - Lock up the Wolves
18 years old at the time the album came out, Rowan Robertson showed off his shredding talents. I don't know what happened to him after this album but I'd love to hear more of his guitar work.

I know Gamma Ray is not a shred band, but Kai Hanson is awesome at it.

Annihilator - Alice in Hell & Never, Neverland is also a thrash band but Jeff Waters is a must hear if you like shred.

David T. Chastain - Instrumental Variations
Hard to find but awesome shred metal.

Oh I forgot David T. Chastain/Michael Harris Live is also a must have CD

Yes Perspective is a great album and Jason Becker does some of the guitaring Like on Rain, Empire and Meet Me In The Morning. He dosent play most of the more technical guitaring but he did write it all.

i dont know if any of you guys have heard of this but Alligator Farm by Paul Gilbert has some killer guitar playing, most notably Whole Lotta Sonata, neoclassical heaven, his playing so clean, flawless, without a doubt the cleanest picker i have ever heard. His legato is second to none too.

Resiliance
03-12-2005, 12:34 PM
^ Yeah, I prefer Gilberto Concerto over Whole Lotta Sonata though, even though they are both great.


Little tidbit of info for people less in-the-know:
"Gilberto Concerto" is the Harpsichord Concerto in A major by J.C. Bach. And "Whole Lotta Sonata" is a Mozart Piano Sonata in C.



My baby lives on an alligator farm, tutututititututititutitititu.

Burning Organ is also great.

I havent heard Gilberto concerto, what album is it on? Its really hard to gilbert stuff over here, i can get Mr big and even some dubious looking Racer X 'Compilations' but its hard work. Other things hard to find in the UK, MichAel Angelo, Jason Becker, any help? Dodgy internet downloads just arent the same.

Paul Gilbert did a shred tuitional in Total Guitar covering things like twisting and looping phrases, legato, refined picking etc, all using pentatonics and stuff and he is absolutely incredible, shred hedonism hearing him go, 'ill play this slow.....then a little quicker....then a little quicker....' as he reaches super speeds.

They're both very close. Second Heat has crazy guitar trade offs between Paul and Bruce, but TD is very good as well even w/ just Paul playing. Of all the Racer X cd's, I like Superheroes the best, but of the two, I'd go with Second Heat. You won't be disappointed w/ any of them though.

all you guys, get hold of the album "Extraction" which features Greg Howe on the guitar, Victor Wooten on bass and Dennis Chambers on drums - some of the most kick arse jazz fusion stuff I"ve heard since watching Allan Holdsworth's 'Tokyo Dreams'

and to think Greg Howe had started off as a neoclassical shredder!

Well, for Gilbert it depends on what stuff you're after.... If you're after his blues, his mucking about, his poppy stuff, his metal shr3dz0r... :p:

i would say either "Van Halen" it as Eruption which changed the world of guitar. Or "1984" which was just plain brilliant.

dudes, you don't knw me and I don't know you, but I have to let this out, just a few days ago I thought steve vai was totally overrated, and for the love of god got boring and also I heard some of his crap songs. So now I saw tender surrender live, fu*k me, I've never seen a man that is so connected to the guitar, as if it is one ofhis own limbs. It's not even arguable, steve vai is the best guitarist in the world.

Why the **** did that have to happen to Jason Becker? He was the best around, and the best there will be in a long long time. Its just so disgusting that someone with such an emmense ability cannot even move his arms hardly, or squezze together those once lightening shred fingers because of a dissability that he DID NOT deserve. No matter if he shreds or not, he is an absolute LORD of Shred!!!

Can anyone recommend me some good fusion albums? I've got Birds of Fire by Mahavishnu, it's excellent. I'm a fan of Satch and Vai's stuff, but not particularly Malmsteen or the strictly classical vein. I like John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk to name a few jazz artists. I've both LTE albums, but I want to steer in a more jazz-influenced direction. I'm looking obviously for very talented musicians :p: One of the samples I've found floating around that I like a lot is THIS CLIP (http://www.marcominnemann.com/BrokenOrange-friday-mind.mp3) off Marco Minnemann's Broken Orange. I heard of Minnemann through a friend who is a drummer.

Also I'd prefer instrumental albums, I'm rather hit-or-miss about my vocalists and am picky :p:

Thanks for your time,

Nobody deserves it. It's not like it's a punishment for something he did. It's just a disease that he was unfortunate enough to get.

hey, man, ya'll forgot about Bon Jovi! how can you call yourselves a thread of 80s must-haves if you don't have SWW or New Jersey? and what about the Crue, huh?
and-ok, i'm gonna stop myself here, but maybe you should think harder about the actual 80s as a decade when you post about must haves. there were other genres, too. what about MJ? so he's a total fruitcake now, but he was an absolute musical genius in the 80s. here, i'll give you my hust-haves so you can see where i'm coming from.

Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet
Motley Crue - Red, White and Crue
Prince - LoveSexy
Billy Idol - Vital Idol
Dire Straits - Money for Nothing

I must say that all fans of hard rock must have UFO's killer live album, Strangers in the Night. Michael Schenker on the lead guitar is fantastic. UFO was awful in the studio, but live they cant be beat. one of the best 70s albums. Better than most 80s too.

Im kinda new to buckethead, ive always liked him, but ive never really listened to much of his stuff. So i downloaded enter the chicken and was suprised, some of the stuff sounded just like soad espically "we are one" can some one please fill me on on his album. Also what do you think is the best buckethead album?

I've decided to purchase a Buckethead cd(of his non-G'N'R career), but I'm not entirely sure which one to get. I was thinking of getting Electric Tears(partially because of the title song), but I'd prefer to get a few recommendations before I make a final decision. Any thoughts?




EDIT: As for my contribution for a must-have, I'd say anything with Randy Rhoads.

I'm thinking about losing the Kramer + Chiafro, and getting a Marty avatar. I posted that pic in your avatar in the Pit in a "Best Pictures" thread. It's a cool pic. There's a pic of Marty with an afro somehwere. I can't effing find it though. I don't think it's photoshopped either. But it's so ridiculous, it might be.
