I searched the forum and no "Shawn Lane" thread came up, so Ill start one. He is, in my opinion, the most soulful shredder, and probably one of the fastest and most unique. His use of displaced rythms makes for very exotic music, and his musica always has an uplifting approach. Any comments from you?

So I take it you saw powersolos then?:p: Yeah though, he is absolutely AWESOME in the true sense of the word.:)

I dont really see him as a shredder - but i love him, personally. I also like that he doesnt have depressing songs, or songs that are heavy for the sake of it.

Sometimes i feel that he overplays a little, especially on ballads, but its usually well timed and appropriate.

Anyone got particular fave songs? Hardcase and GPF for me.

And have you guys joined up at www.lanesblitz.com? Why settle for a SL thread when you can have a SL FORUM? The guys there will love you! :)

Don't see how you don't see him as a shredder FP, he undoubtely shreds and was one of the best.

But anyways yea I love his stuff that I've heard, Get You Back being one of my favorites, I love that chord progression.

Yes, Ive seen Power Solos, thats where I learned about displacing rythms, and I am currently a member at Lane Blitz. My favorite songs are mostly ones with Jonas Hellborg, but outside that, GPF for sure. Learning it right now.

Damn you're lucky...

I love the music I've heard from him. I think that, for the sake of spreading his great music to the masses, Vai should buy the rights to his stuff and re-issue it, because who can afford $50 for PoT? (pun not intended)

Lane is really good, and really knows how to use his skill. But I wouldn't say he's the most soulful. I'd say Vai, Satch, Friedman, and Becker own the rest on that level. But he could shred their asses into oblivion with no problem. I really like some of his runs, they're kind of hard to explain because they're so technical and exotic sounding. His music just makes you go like :eek: I really like him, he's just so easygoing about his playing. He seems to have so much fun while he's jamming.

Shawn Lane is like an exotic jazz guitairist fused with cyborg arms.

Don't see how you don't see him as a shredder FP, he undoubtely shreds and was one of the best.


Oh, undoubtably a guitar virtuoso, but i see shredders as more rock/metal based. And very few shredders play runs that COMPLEX, generally its scalar or arpeggic, with each lick containing large sections of and given character largely by usage of different techniques...

Anyway!

edit: lol, eddie after seeing shawn play = :kissass:

Yeh, i think they do - shawn did ask patrice vigier specially for a super flat radius, super low action. Its due to his arthritis and tendonitis, which meant playing guitar was very painful for him. Hence he made it as easy as possible to play. He could play like that on a strat. Maybe not his "AAAAAAAAAARGH WTF THATS NOT POSSIBLE" stuff, but certainly stuff that thats in a league above rusty and fareri!

Factoid of the day - Shawn Lane played piano at Paul Gilbert's wedding!

I completely disagree about the feeling. I gaurentee you, there has been a jam, or a song where they were just trying do something for the sake. IMO Shawn is always in his music, even if the music is show off music, like the MIT jam. He was always beautiful in his presentation, and even if it was over the top, he was over the top along with it, because he is his music, or better yet, the music is him. He couldnt play a dishonest note if he had tried.

Nevermore, please try and remember that you ahve no idea who's actually most soulful - what you're really saying is which one has the greatest capacity to move the emotions, isnt it?

And if its not, how the hell do you tell how much someone loves their music? Its impossible!

Stop this nonsense now! At least he's not trying to put EVH above lane technically, which i've seen some try, lol.

Shawn's technical skill blows me away, it's like he's on a completely different level than everyone else. Personally I think he's the best there is (technically). For some reason though I can't seem to get into his music. It's soulful and everything but I guess it just gets kind of boring after a while. Maybe it's the tone.

*cue air vibrato*

Lol, have you seen the white strat video? He chucks the guitar away in disgust with his own playing after 20 mins of the worst playing i've ever seen him do. Still pwned my arse sideways. :p:

Yeah, like I said, I like how he's so easygoing. He just plays really casually and is always so nice and jazzy. I'd say the MIT Jam is my favorite thing he's done. I'm not saying he's emotionless or anything, I just find some others more listenable than him. Listenable is a good word for what I was trying to say.

God, did i feel like a right piece of **** there.

Anyway, on topic. What do you most like about lane (considering every other person seems to dislike his tone, it'd be kinda silly to ask the converse)?

paddyo
01-06-2006, 03:15 PM
My liking for him is to do with basically(hate that word) everything I like about a good guitarist/shredder/composer/overall musician I guess. He just knows when to tone it down and write those amazing pieces of music on top of his gift for playing fast! Like, I listen to Epilogue and I'm thinking Jesus this is fucking beauitful and then I listen to Not again(just picking my fav's as an exampl:p: ) and it's the same(not tempo but overall feel) for the first 2 minutes or so and then at 2:15 that section where he starts his solo and builds it up, and phrases ****ing Godly...It's like that for all of his songs so I think I like him more as a composer/musician than a shredder. Sorry this probably makes no sense:p:..
Anyways what about you? Why do you like him?

You know, with all my favourite players, it was almost like somebody grabbed me by the balls and swung me around when I first heard them. Johnson, Vai, Gilbert, I just got stuck to the spot.

I can safely say that Lane and Vai have both changed the way I approach the guitar.

I love Shawn Lane's tone. I love his chice of notes. I love the feel, the atmosphere, his compositional abilities, his improvisations. His technique is far superior to all these regular shredders. When I heard people talk about Lane, I thought he was just another shredder, but when I heard the way it should be, I realised that I was wrong.

And I read about Mandolin Srinivas praising him. Its not often that an Indian musician "praises" any guitarist. That person would have to be something special.

Axegrinder the lucky bastard ****er piece of **** saw a live performance of Lane and he was about 3 feet away from him. What a ****er.

I still can't help but See a strong resembelance in Lane and vai's playing, I dunno what it is, but theres something about note choice in there thats similar, in some things not as much as others but in some stuff I could have sworn it was a vai lick, but vai being the technical reject he is compared to lane dosen't normally do a lick that sounds like his, unless its a slow one.

Because I've my slow comp, I can't upload them quickly, so pm me and I'll see what I can do about. FP, I have one I know you'll enjoy.

Ahh, because I connect so deep when I'm playing Pantera songs. I mean, maybe once I can play Shawns songs (if ever) Ill feel that with him, but I feel Dimebag's soul while playing. It gets to me. With shawn, I can't connect that way until the ability is there. I've only felt it a few times while learning a small portion of GPF.

I was watching the (I think you guys refer to it as this) White Strat Video where Shawn is playing on a strat and screws up so many times your like "Teh Lanez0rz is hav1inG teh baddest of all dayz! ooohhhhhz nooooz!" We all know of his arthritis (I hope) and how he had insane trouble playing on most anything other than a flat radius. Then I noticed this comment. Some people are so ignorant.



"He plays some awesome licks in there but it's mostly diatonic. He made some mistakes in the middle of some of those licks because I think he was trying to over do it with the speed. If I could find something a little off about Lane's playing it would be that he was overly simple and diatonic with his chord progessions and over did it with the speed from time to time.

Still an awecome player"

Yeah complexity would definitely be a good word to describe Lane's playing style. He seems like such a sweet guy. I couldn't believe the softness of his voice and his tenderness when approaching a tough run or arpeggio. I just really started getting into his stuff during the summer, and I was glad I picked that season to start listening. His music is beautiful and well-orchestrated, and unlike some shredders, he manages somehow to put quite a bit of soul into his playing. It's not like run-of-the-mill shred where its impossible to discern the playing style, or even the player. His positive playing style, and radical tonality make for an incredible listening experience. When I read that he passed away just a few years ago, I was crushed. I couldn't believe he was taken away from us at such an early age. He certainly deserves more attention than most shredders. Rest in Peace Shawn. Long live the Memphis Monster!

No, I think what you're seeing is his facial expressions he makes while playing. What I'm trying to say is, your using the word soul, as if someone has it or not. I actualy don't think there is such thing as playing with soul. Your just playing. I just find it silly to focus on things such as, soul, emotion, etc. Which in my opinion doesn't exist. Focus on the music, not on something frivolous as things that aren't changing the music.

I'm fast approaching the hundredth CD in my collection (currently up to 98), and obviously I want the magical milestone to be something very, very special. I've been toying around with a few hard-to-get titles (i.e. Megadeth's Killing Is My Business with 'These Boots' intact, Petrucci's Suspended Animation, or some Allan Holdsworth), but the more I think about it, the more I realise that if there's one way I'd REALLY like to celebrate acquiring my hundredth album, it'd have to be Lane's Powers Of Ten and The Tritone Fascination to round up 99 and 100 respectively.

Problem is, I can't find 'em anywhere in the UK, full stop. Ordering them from abroad seems risky on some of the places I've visited; Amazon has a few sellers with dodgy ratings, and eBay is inconvenient because I have a debit card but won't use Paypal (heard too many horror stories). Also, why the HELL did 'Hardcase' and 'Nine=101' get dropped from the re-issue of Tritone? Doesn't make a blind bit of sense, and I really like those songs from the MP3s I've heard, so getting the re-issue would feel like a consolation prize.

So basically, where to look? His official site only has the re-issue, and it's all $ so I can't really be arsed to start importing. Those two albums must really be treasure. :(

Well, I finally have it. Powers Of Ten for a slightly pricey 21 from Amazon. I would never have paid that much for any other CD, but after all - it's Shawn, and was my hundredth CD. And my goodness, it feels like a dream actually owning this masterpiece and not having to listen to a bunch of badly-ripped tracks from LimeWire! Plus, it's nice to have the Eye Reckon edition with Tri-Heaven and the alternative versions of Get You Back and West Side Boogie on it. :cool:

On that note, something interesting that I discovered about The Tri-Tone Fascination - Eye Reckon has re-released it with Hardcase and Nine=101 as bonus tracks, but the problem is that their website gives me a 403 and never allows me to view it. But then, as it's a relatively new 2006 release, I'm sure it'll start appearing on Amazon or eBay sooner or later. I'll certainly forget about ordering it from his family's site, seeing as they're branding Eye Reckon as thieves because of some estate issue. :rolleyes:

And by gum, if I have to pay another twenty-one quid for that CD, I will. I just gave my crappy MP3 version of the album a quick listen (complete with bad volume normalisation and numerous licks/pops), and I'd say it's damn near on par or better than POT.

Damn you're lucky...

I love the music I've heard from him. I think that, for the sake of spreading his great music to the masses, Vai should buy the rights to his stuff and re-issue it, because who can afford $50 for PoT? (pun not intended)

Shawn Lanes family deals with distributing his dvds and stuff I think that's the way it should stay because they had a huge loss you know? He was not only a fantastic guitarist he was an equally amazing piano player. He did all of the instrumentation in Powers of Ten drums and all with the drum sounds on a keyboard. I think that's pretty amazing. I heard a guy call him a virtuosos virtuoso lol. Shawn Lane was the best guitarist/composer/musician of our time and I hate that I didn't start playing guitar until shortly after he died. I live in Tennessee and plan on visiting his grave in Memphis just out of respect for what he did for guitarists and musicians alike. I haven't even listened to him but for maybe a month or more but he instantly became my favorite guitarist from the 1st time I heard Gray Pianos Flying and Get You Back. His phrasing is breath taking and his playing makes the best of guitarists look bad. He was a philosopher also he believed everything in life was connected specifically and worked perfectly in sync. He studied everything and I mean everything even butterflies. He taught the world what he knew and didn't take life for granted he loved every second of it until the day he died. What better way to go than that? I still feel awfully sorry for his family though. They have a forum and his niece always posts comments saying how much she misses him and his wife talks about how they got married and his mom talks about the day he died and it's just so sad. The world really lost a great musician and more importantly a great person. It's great that he's finally getting noticed it's a shame that he wasn't when he was alive though. I'm sure he would be so happy to hear all the nice things people say about him now even after his death. I've never heard anything bad about him. RIP Shawn Lane

Wow, old thread. All the old group seem to have a post in here...

Actually, Shawn's playing has grown on me in the time I spent away from here, I quite like the material he did with Hellborg, but I still feel his solo material is a little hit or miss.

DON'T let this thread die. He's the best I've ever heard. His work is technically accurate as well as very emotional. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVRmJm9zEdo
He also cries and makes us cry too. Above video is a good example, which was written for his sister who died in an accident.

I'll always remember him every time I pick up my guitar.

I don' t know if anyone has read back that far, but this is in reference to the post about facial expressions and body movement not being significant to how much someone puts in a song.
I'd just like to say that it's all about empathy, the way a note hits someone so hard that they have to bend their knee or close their eyes, is a powerful thing. And when you see that, and you understand what's going on, it effects you. If you can feel what that person feels, and you react yourself for want of that moment. This is how I view comments about emotion and soul, in the context of someone's playing or performance.
And with Shawn Lane, more than anyone, I feel what he's trying to say. And I answer him the only way I can, picking up what he put down, and trying my best to continue what he started. I know it's damn near impossible, he was a monster, but he inspires me to never give up and keep going no matter what. I look what he's accomplished, all the while he battled with his own demons and sickness, and still came out one of the most respected guitarist in the world for those who know of him.
I've known no one like him, and it's a sad thing. But in my thoughts and my music I hope he lives.

Yeah, I don't think it's unfair to say it's a little derivative, but it's also a kinda Kaiser Nancarrow thing as well. I really dig some of Shawn's other spaceship licks, the "reverse bloop" and "loop the loop" licks especially. I have have no idea how to play the former. :p:

There was some debate in MT over the seagull noise recently, but I think that's been sorted.

The dead thing was a joke, don't take offense to it...actually you can if you want I don't care. If 'fjory wouldn't have said it I might have jumped in here and said it.

His Charvel was a 750XL, and he had 2 Ibanez guitars, one was a 24 fret custom version of a S series.... and the other one (his "Powers of Ten" guitar) was a custom based on what turned out to be a Ghostrider.


I have made a thread up showing photos and screenshots of all the guitars Shawn owned or used over his life, here :

Lots of different scales. I have a few of them written down somewhere... I'll see if I can grab them.

To be honest, the whole indian approach to scales is kind of different than ours, so the "scales" aren't as helpful as you'd think to playing like that.

Yeah I read about that yesterday. I'm just curious to see what he had used though. I heard he used a good bit of pentatonics since since Indian uses 'em a good bit.

That would be helpful. Many thanks for even trying mate.

Isn't sort of a few notes in a chord that defines the feel and these chords have specific intervals raised to the 3/4 tone or something else similar and that sort of sound leans a certain way...I use sort of too much :)
