Important rule :

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 retarded 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.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

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.

He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

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

Probably Yngwie tried to speak english and he though that shred was some kinda normal english word at the time
#24
Maybe it's from the sheer speed of shred artists. They play so fast it seems they're literally "shredding" the guitar. Just an assumption...

^Maybe, or, even though this sounds stupid, it might be to do with the strings being 'shredded' or breaking.

Is it true that in the US OTT shred solos are called wanking? I've heard something about that...
I was bad with usernames at age 12. Ah woe.

^^ same thing as echo. Where what you play is repeated back several times before it dies out. You can ajust the distance between echoes. short, long ect.


And for my chat topic, how old was becker when he started playing. I've been playing 2 1/2 years and I'm 15 and am about 3 minutes through SMS, but he was 17 at the time, and a far superior guitarist to me now. I always compare myself to others. It's a bad habit.

Resiliance, you better add more stuff man. I rarely add something to my Favorites unless it's good, and that's just pure talent.

So you better add more or i'll...
