Yeah i was watching the speed kills "no bounderies" the other day on youtube.com and i saw michael angelo do this wired hand trick where he just randomly blurs his hands around the fret board and hammering on all the notes (not a good descripsion but if u watch his videos u will know what i'n on about)
i just wanna know how he does this **** man?its awsome i reakon

just fret one note with your hand under the neck, then do the next one with your hand "over" the neck. It's a kinda pointless thing to do but yeah it looks cool i guess

Tremelo pick one string, fret on note over the neck, and one under, basically what that guy just said. Do it as fast as you can.

It takes a ****load of practice bud. It's just like how he can play two necks at the same time using hammer ons and pulloffs, it takes practice.

or you can tremolo pick different strings while fretting strings that you arent picking and hence trick the audience.

I've seen the video once long long ago and youtube isn't loading atm.

i don't know which bit your talking about, everything on that video seems normal(freakishly fast) apart from the sectiosn where he plays with his fretting hand 'over' the neck, which i don't know why he does it apart form to look cool, which it sort of does.

Well... YOu just put your hand under then over the fretboard- I guess it takes a load of practise though

i no, trivium did it for one section of drowned and torn asunder live when i saw em which was cool 2 c both of em doin it. but I don;t understand y u wud spend hours practicin to do it when its way easier to play normally and show off by playin well in stead of some trick from the 80's

^ Yes it does. I've tried it for 10 minutes and got up to 1/12345 of MAB speed and gave up :p:.

It is a little pointless, but drives non guitar players nuts, like most shred anyway.

I think it's awesome lol even though it has nothign to do with the sound or music :/

I can do it at a relatively normal speed, like on the intro (well right after the intro riff) in Silent Night, Bodom Night by Children of Bodom. When I did it for my friend he was like "...wtf did you just do?....why?..." lol

wasn't there a big discussion on this a while ago that debated whether the tape was sped up or not?

I think it is sped up

^ I don't know. I watched a video of him on Google Video recorded by some random guy where Batio was at like this guitar/music store or something and he is surrounded by kids, teens, and adults. He does the alleged fast over-under thing during the sgon he plays, but everybody else's movements remain at normal speed. In theory, wouldn't the audience's gestures have to move faster too had it been sped up?

:cheers:
He teaches you how to do it on the Speed Lives DVD and when hebreaks it down there is a discernible melody in there--a sort of Yngwie/Maiden openstring motif--but i agree that when angelo actually does it, youcant really hear it...

I think it's pretty pointless really. Good show trick I guess. Has anyone seen the old 'Speed Kills' video with the silver v-type guitar?

If the original was sped up, he's certainly made good by learning to do it fo' real.

Go to Mark Tremonti's website and see for yourself. There's a video of a few shredders live at NAMM (I think it's NAMM) and Batio does it live.

the video of No Boundaries (where he changes guitar loads) could have been sped up a bit , cos its half a step higher

so props to him.
