i've been looking for some shred-ish stuff to listen to. although Vai and Satch are great and i can appreciate what they do and the skill they have, i just don't like there stuff in large doses. i find with Satch i can happily listen for about 2 mins and then it sorta becomes "okay, you gonna do something else for the rest of this album other than play 1000 miles an hour".
I quite like some Vai but again it can get boring after while.

So what shredders should i listen to that i won't find repetitive and get bored of?

thanks

i find with Satch i can happily listen for about 2 mins and then it sorta becomes "okay, you gonna do something else for the rest of this album other than play 1000 miles an hour".

if that is the case I don't believe shred to be your kind of music

If you find Satch to be boring because he plays fast too much I think you should probably leave it at that, most other shredders spend much more time playing much faster...

You obviously haven't listened to much Vai or Satch, they are probably one if not he most colorful shredders. If you don't like that i don't think shred is for you.

He plays some nice melodies, but most of his music is just ripping alternate picking licks.

And playing unique and obscure sounds on the guitar, guitar hero has ruined his music for me.

paul gilbert- any album really. I'd suggest either united states with freddie nelson, or acoustic samurai (something like that). his solo stuff is not what you'll be expecting (apart from maybe his 2 latest completely solo albums).

bumblefoot- normal

Guthrie Govan- Erotic Cakes

I'd reccomend those if you don't really like constant widdling.

That's a pretty stupid statement. How can you not listen to his music after one (ONE) of his songs is used in a video game?

You are as bad as the kids who obsess over the bands who have one song in the game. Those kids go out and buy the albums, get the shirts, see them live, etc., which (excluding the obvious poser image and mentality) is overall a positive effect.

The difference is that you stop listening to their music, saying it's been ruined, and just complaining about it. You are the obsessive, non-conformist-I-don't-do-it-because-it's-cool elitist. Grow up.

Not only is Guthrie Govan one of the most tasteful virtuosos I know, his album Erotic Cakes is my favorite shred album ever, and is one of the best CDs in my collection.

Duh... Satch is boring. He has released the same album about dozen times with different stupid song titles. Why is he even called a shredder? His chops are ridiculously bad. I'm not surprised if somebody gets bored of his guitar-bass-drums pseudo blues.

he is defo a shredder. but i find him boring cos the song will be good but then falters. its like he has a good intro for about a minute then he goes into a solo. but then the solo carries on and on and on and on and on and on and onnnnn........ and then you get an outro. and then this is repeated for every track

You can't have heard very much of his music?

Colma, Electric Tears, Chicken Noodles, Chicken Noodles II, Population Override, many on In Search of The, alla three Thanatopsis albums, Acoustic Shards... etc.

All are soft music, with no or very little shred.
The majority of his stuff is experimental metal, but you can't say he does not have a big catalog of soft stuff. So many statements are made on pure ignorance.

Shred = Batio, Moore, Cooley, MacAlpine, Becker, Friedman, Stump
Instrumental rock = Satch, Vai, Howe, Saraceno, Garsed, Johnson, Beck

Based on overall output, we all know Satch can shred in minimal legato bursts... but he's not a shredder. To be a shredder, he'd have to release an entire album with non-stop fast shit (that'll be the day!!!!!!!!! )

I don't really see the point in that.

With this, I agree.
