Yeah, but to be fair I think pretty much everyone's taste in music has changed a lot since back in 06! I'm take it you're mainly hanging out in musician's talk nowadays?

So I tried an album by Haken. Fucking hated it. Once again it shows that downloading-before-buying is the only way to go with unfamiliar bands. Samples/snippets wouldn't have done the job.

Fates Warning, on the other hand, left me with a lovely warm fuzzy feeling within myself after buying their new album. I didn't even have to preview it - I just knew it was going to be wonderful, especially after 9 years.

I was never really into shred except Guthrie, Shawn and Holdsworth, that hasn't really changed.

I hang out the most in Guitar Techniques (surprise surprise!), I find that you can actually answer questions fruitfully there. MT often seems to be split into those who don't know and don't want to know, and those who know and don't need to be told.

Tbh just not posting a lot in general, doing lots of guitaring and dota 2, plus I just don't really feel like repeating myself.

How's yourself?

I didn't even know they put out a new album! I guess that is what I get for not visiting this place in forever. Able to compare it to a past album?

It caught me by surprise too. I only learned of it a month ago via Wikipedia (having the Fates Warning article on my watchlist for seemingly no reason turned out to be a good idea).

It pretty much picks up where FWX left off, but without as much clean tone playing. Or, it's exactly like the Arch/Matheos album but with Alder instead. Either way I haven't stopped listening to it all week. Without any doubt, my favourite album of 2013.

I'm doing well! 3rd year medical student in Norway at the moment. Finally got a band going with a decent creative flow too. Came back to UG because we're part of a demo competition and I figured some of the posters in the bandleading forum may have some input on getting votes. Never got around to asking though haha. Feel free to check us out (see sig) and vote if you like it though! Very odd coming back here looking back at old posts, especially considering the fact that in considered myself one of the forum veterans as a 14 year old haha.

It's that time of year where I try and learn some Shawn Lane licks again... just the head from "Who would you like to be". Crikey it's tough! Figured out some neat little tricks with hybrid picking though!

That was sick, man. Every now and then I think to myself "Hey, I think I'm actually getting a little better".

Then I see a few of your videos, and...

Unstuck, I'm sure you guys have noticed the shred forum is no more. I'll shoot Resi a PM and we'll have a scotch and remember the glory days.



Cheers!

To the days of general tomfoolery, A7xOwnz and the guitar hero story thread.

Poor shred forum, this whole site is really dead. I feel like people don't use forums in general much anymore. Exceptions seem to be gaming sites, social media, 4chan, reddit, and etc.

Yeah, it's a shame because I think in some ways the forums were a better way to learn than youtube, which I think has replaced them as the repository of guitar info. It's much harder to find a proper mentor who's willing to put in the time with you, or just to get to chat online with people who really know their shit. On the other hand, there's no doubting that youtube makes it much easier to create effective lessons and it's much more entertaining...

I do miss the social stuff but I don't really have the time any more. What are you up to nowadays?

I appreciate your sacrifice.

I'm glad we merged but at the same time I was an alt/indie poster and that place is no more (which wouldn't be a bad thing if they were posting here as you are >_> and I get how shred being gone is sad.

Definitely the end of an era, and the end period is probably near.

Wow, it's crazy that this thread was started over 10 years ago... Also, I'm beyond shocked that Shred Forum doesn't exist anymore!

What has happened here at UG?

The entire forum is almost completely dead.

Times have changed I guess. People just prefer youtube or whatever to the whole forum thing. Maybe the more specialist forums are doing better, I have no idea. :S

It's been a long time coming. I'm honestly surprised it took this long to happen. There has been little activity around these parts for a couple of years. Mostly either repeat-threads or zombie-threads. No real legitimate discussions anymore.

Or at least, from what I've seen. I don't pop in as often as I used to. But a lot of the front-page threads I was seeing had many months since the last reply and were still on the front page. Quite depressing to say the least.
