This guy was actually better than I thought he would be. He's got a very nice melody. And hes not very sloppy.

You have a cool name Kris. But why do you use a solid state amp??

Well, I don't know what's your definition of sloppy, but I think he still has a long way to go to get his technique clean.

i agree with you kris. though playing shred music requires alot of technical ability, the music is always more important than the ability of its player. (as long as its not too[I] sloppy)

kris your music is pretty sweet, i might have to buy a copy of your cd after it's released. All the songs i got off myspace are great. I gotta say im pretty surprised to see you in the forums, i don't mean im surprised to find a thread about you, im surprised you read them, although i can't say why.

Even though Glen Drover could play note for note on perhaps one of the Friedman solos for Megadeth, it will never have the feel or the emotion that it would have if Friedman was playing it. If you listen to alot of Friedman solos either from Megadeth or Cacophony, you will here that he can be a bit sloppy, but I don't think it takes away from the music, but it adds a certain touch that makes it feel human. This is clearly my opinion though. I don't want to try to start an arguement.


I completely disagree. There are so many things that can set a guitarist apart while being very clean. And I'm not going to repeat the whole emotion thing again

As long as you're not saying one shouldn't strive to be as clean as possible in their playing.

But yeah, Kris, I have to say I'm not a very big fan of your stuff. Judging from what's on your myspace, it sounds like something Shrapnel would've brought out in the 90's. It's just the same old harmonies, the same old harmonic minor scales, the same old runs... It's not that it's you, it's just my general disdain for neoclassical stuff like this nowadays. It really lacks originality, in my opinion.

Play some fusion, now that'd be interesting!

The music doesn't really stand out.

I have the same old gripe as I do with most neo-classical guitarists. It lacks my two favorite things from the baroque and classical era, counterpoint and dynamics!

You've potential though. You could go places if/when your writing matures.

I like it, it's good good melody, and not too... "Wanky."

For me anyway.

Any reaction to the responses that aren't so praising?

It's okay, but I thought maybe you were one of those guys that just ignore negative comments and carry on as usual, thinking they're the greatest thing that ever graced this planet. Quite a lot of those around, unfortunately.

Haha, you needn't worry about that in this particular subforum. We (by which I mean the regulars) have all participated in plenty of standoffs between ignorant fools (speed=no em0ti0n!!!) before eventually learning to ignore their crap.

And of course, what you say is true, even though I'm not going to rake up my stance that emotion is in the listener, not in the music and that therefore music can't be emotional or unemotional, just be found as such.

Crap, guess I did rake it up But it's not the meaning of this post to talk about that, I get what you're saying, and yes, of course.

I will be awaiting your forays into jazzland.

I do hope you both will actually contribute to the forum as well, instead of just advertising your stuff... ?

Well I just needed to rejoin since its been forever since I was on here.

That aside its still relevant to the thread for me to tell people about the band cause last time I checked the thread was titled "Kris Sobanski" and Kris Sobanski is in Selerity with me. So its not just MY stuff, if you aren't interested then don't click it!

No need to get angry, just asking, as we're not open to freeloaders

I'll post something useful eventually. For now I'm busy slaving away learning Kris's music and writing new stuff so we can go out and start cuttin' heads soon.
