i have heard that marcus paus is a real guitar player, and that he really did play the guitar parts that fast. But he sort of went away, because he only did it because of his medical condition. and I think Paganini had the same condition. But I might be wrong. either way, most evidence supports the fact that he was just a talented freak. Both Marcus and Paganini.


Also, i read somewhere that there is someone that played over 10000000 nps, and he did it just to make fun of guitar players that thought speed was important.

:haha . Anyways, Paganini's disorder/jointedness allowed him to have major stretchage. I think Marcus' supposive disorder was rapid neurological movement or some ****, so different things.

Marcus? He was just a huge lane fan who practiced like **** for a few years. So he was FAST. No disorder.

And paganini? I dont think he had any medical condition, just super flexible hands. A lot of people who have been seriously playing an instrument since childhood have this. A friend of mine can almost bend the back of his palm into his arm. Shawn Lane could get his fingertips to touch his wrist - backwards. Paganini had small hands but could stretch like billy-o.

You get the idea. Rubber hands seem to arrive for young prodigies.

HammerForce
05-08-2006, 07:51 AM
His flexibility may have been a result of Marfan syndrome or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

found that on Wikipedia Re Paganini. It also says that he DID in fact play guitar, man that would've been sweet.

Freepower
05-08-2006, 08:18 AM
Didntcha know? He wrote for guitar, i have a few cds. Crap compared to his violin stuff. He carried it everywhere. And he was a cello and mandolin player as well.

Kinda like Yngwie plays bass and drums (not drum'n'bass, lol) and Shawn played piano and drums - no-one remembers because the instrument they fronted bands with and were best on was guitar. :)

a myth about paganini is that he sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his monster-technique but who would believe such a ****.

his health deteriorated due to somekind of cancer which caused him the ability to speak but he kept playing the violin till he died.

the night before his tragic death it's said the he could be heard improvising wildly on the violin.

What the **** are you talking about, Vai was the possessed guitar player not the karate kid, Ry Cooder, and the other guy was talking about how people used to say that paginini played like he was possessed, not that he sold his soul to the devil, and even if they did say that, they obviously didn't mean it literally, dumbass.

The harmonica player(whose name escapes me right now), and Robert Johnson suposedly sold their soul to the devil at the the crossroads. And I'm talking about the kid that I'm pretty sure is from karate kid act's like he's playing the song at the end, but it was really recorded by Vai. Don't try to pass me off as a asshat.

Undoubtably, but it wonder how much of his "condition" was due to "conditioning", as i've seen a lotta people who develop extreme rubberhands.

his health deteriorated due to somekind of cancer which caused him the ability to speak but he kept playing the violin till he died.


He was ill all his life, rather like our Lane chappy, he was never really healthy after a certain age, and had many lung and digestive problems. Often a tour would let him get fresh air and he often took them for his health.

Y'know he made more money (comparitively) than metallica?

mr_clapton
05-09-2006, 05:15 AM
thats cause he was the the first say rockstar, he was the first to go and perform unaccompanied with his violin and it was him playing his songs not an orchestra

That's right. And actually, it has been said that Paganini may have even started those rumors himself. But that is just speculation. You can go ahead and call him up if you want to know for sure.......

Back in those days (end of 18th century I think), when the christian church was almighty, it wasn't considered "cool" and rebelious to be posessed by the devil. In fact, people were burned alive for that sort of thing.

No, the rumor that his songs were the work of the devil was spread by his colleagues from music school, because he was so much better than them and they were jealous.

If you can find it, I reccomend you read the absolutely brilliant book "Condemnation of Paganini" by A. Vinogradov.

"According to Philip Sandblom in his book Creativity and Disease few geniuses have experienced such lucky agonies as Paganini, bedeviled by a host of chronic complaints, including Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, marked by excessive flexibility of the joints. ?This enabled Paganini to perform the astonishing double-stoppings and roulades for which he was famous?, Sandblom writes. ?His wrist was so loose that he could move and twist it in all directions. Although his hand was not disproportional he could thus double its reach and play in the first three positions without shifting.?

That what **** players have always said. "Practice and i can do it".

The good players are not the people that say "I could do it" most. They're the ones who ****ING DO.

Why, yes you are correct. But I think you underestimate just how much 'enough' practice is. You will never be able to play them if you practice for anything less than 8 hours a day.

I found out something really depressing the other day, I've been playing guitar for twice as long as Francesco Fareri had been when he released 'Suspension'. That makes me feel so inadequate :( In four years he clocked up 33nps and all I can just manage 33 a minute :(
