K i was bored and just wondering, where is the oddest place youve ever heard some loverly shreddin?

I mean, as in, it can be a place where you heard a shred song (i.e. For the love of god playing in your supermarket :p: ), it can be a song you did not expect to have shredding in at all (Bad pop music with pg on guitar maybe?), or a concert/band/person at guitar center you did not expect to be shreddin, whatever, be creative.

Anyways, bad 80s music videos and B.B. king for me.
I was watching vh1 classic, and lots of old 80s dance tunes had some bitching crazy guitar work in it, and somewhat tasteful too. Also the outtro solo to Twilight zone by golden earring, dunno if its guitar or keyboard, but ive copped a few licks from it.

Also, when i saw bb king with bobby blue bland, bobbys guitarist warmed up with some sweet fast jazz licks, and a fair bit of sweep picking, and not just typical arps. Not really shred, but we all like jazz here, so it was pretty cool, considering he was so clean.

Also, random odd punk bands, especially japanese ones, tend to throw shred into their songs, or at least maidenesque harmonies.

Someone I don't know wore a Vai shirt to my school several times last year if that means anything.

But I don't think he goes to our school anymore.

I don't want to say "emo," but I will anyway...

Some gay emo band was playing at my school's talent show, and right at the peak of their song's homosexuality, the guitarist started shredding.

Also, not really shred (at all), but Kerry King was in some Sum 41 video.

(i.e. For the love of god playing in your supermarket :p: ).


Believe it or not, this actually happened. :D I work ( part-time, I'm still in school) as a manager in a supermarket, and I found myself getting increasingly frustrated with the songs on the radio. Pop music is one thing, but hearing the same songs three times in four hours made me bring some cd's and play them there. For the love of God was one of the songs.
I also played some Symphony X ( Inferno) there once, but that didn't work out that well with the customers... (" Welcome to the Anarchy.." Very appropriate lyrics :D ) So back to pop music it was :p:

Talking about the radio: one other cool thing was that I heard a Sun Caged song on a radio station, accompanied with a Marcel Coenen interview. Cool stuff. :)

For a project we had to make a video, and when we were making it I didn't realise how loud my music was in the background, so through the whole thing you could hear Cliffs of Dover in the background. It was actually pretty funny because most people were listening to the music more than they were paying attention to the project :p:

While it wasn't at a supermarket, I heard that song playing at an auto repair shop I walked by while I was out walking around the town. I stopped and leaned against the entryway just listening until the song was over. The guys working kept looking over at me and giving me weird looks.

Phantom of the Opera? You mean Andrew Lloyd Webber? In that case it isn't that weird ;)

Webber is imo 1 of the 2 best composers of last century (next to Oldfield), check out his rock opera movie "Jesus Christ Superstar"

Great great music, great vocals as well :)

The lyrics are written by Tim Rice in JesusCS, who also wrote a few other classics like Lion King and stuff like that :)

I highly recommend this movie, check it out guys :D

Master Of Shred
04-07-2006, 02:30 PM
well I don't even know if the storyline is "correct", they have probably followed parts of it, but changed it as well.

I don't have a religion neither, but that doesn't really matter, even if you don't know anything about religion you'll still understand this movie, mainly because they won't go in detail much, only how Judas "betrayed" Jesus.

Music is good? The film=music.

I pointed out that it was a rock opera didn't I? In case you don't know, in opera's every word in sang/sung/sing or however the grammer works with that :p:

Shame its the worst Extreme song ever. Be better if it was something like Play With Me or Its a Monster.

I wish good music was actually played in shops instead of that hip-hop or pop. :(
It would be brilliant to hear something like Symphony X being played.

Thing is.. all those crappy players for pop princesses. Or shall I say, people who play for crappy pop princesses are usually rather good. They are hired as session musicians. Look at John 5, consider for a moment the kinds of bands hes famous for... Hes sessioned for K.D. Lang and whatnot because his country licks are amazing.

Andy Timmons is a great guitarist, and has really played around alot as a session player. If you looked hard enough you could find plenty of modern musicians who hes sessioned for..

That's my dream, to be a session player..

A couple of weeks ago I was watching some Italian song contest. I didnt understand any of it, I just watched it because I was board.

So anyway, there was this girl singing a ballad with two middle-aged guys. So I'm thinking "Yeah its arverage" & "I could sing in Italian better than that", then one of the guys gets up and grabs an Ibanez Jem and starts rockin' out. Then at the end he started shredding.

The Jem was awsome. It looked like the 10th anniversary Jem:

But it had the triangular symbol that is on the UV777:

Another oen from me. I playued at a carnival and the deal was that we had to play more popular songs at the start and our stuff at the end. So we played a few Avenged Sevenfold songs. but This is at a Carnival. Then we told all of the kids that we were going to play the Charlie Brown Theme Song. My Drummer had a piano and played it. but then i came in with my guitar and added a few licks to it. Some kid started crying and my Teacher's kids ran away. Not at how bad it was but the fact that we completely metalled up a kids' tune. I was proud of it though.

Although it's not quite shred: I accompanied my friends to a discotheque a few weeks ago, and the DJ suddenly played a dance version of Smoke on the water from Deep Purple. Now you must be thinking: sacrilege! - heresy! - and things alike, but to be honest, after the amount of noise I had endured up to that point it was actually a welcome remix ;)
