RULES AND HELPFULL SITES

Important rule :

Noobs are welcome in here, with questions about shred, no stupid lines like : 'slash is 10 times as fast as angelo' so don't flame the ones with questions... or I will report you...

some shredders sites :

www.angelo.com

Another important rule :

Don't call names at eachother when people say things like : "dude michael angelo sucks, he's just based on speed and doesn't play with feeling at all " . that's his/her opinion, respect it. obviously you can tell him/her that you've an other opinion but that doesn't mean he's some stupid ****ing ******ed mother****er or something like that. if I see disrespecting posts like that I will report you, again.

I think it was long over due, if shred hadn't been knocked out, it would have kept getting worse and worse.

Not bad, Bub... and only 14, holy crap!

Currently, my mic "has a cold" but when I get a new one or something, I'll post some of my shit.

As for whoever asked when the peak of shred was, as far as I can tell, somewhere in the 80's, and even the beginning of the 90's. Shred, musically and especially technically, has always been above most other genres/styles, and shred artists could easily become proficient in any other style if they chose to.

the whole nps thing comes from the fact its an irrefutable measure of skill.
Let me demonstrate - you argue with someone over whos more melodic - how can you ever agree? Its opinion.
Speed is not an opinion. You are fast. And you can quantify it.

But then again, speed is overrated. I love frusciante. Fareri can eat my shorts.

How long did it take you to compose your Vai-like track? The beginning seemed like it needed some compression, but then settled down to a nice steady volume.
Jinglejazz was pretty neat as well.

I didn't really give much thought to it... I made it in about 30 minutes I think, just chordal stuff
