He is also a really really gnarly guitar player. You can't even say that dude doesn't have skills.

people hate him but no one will ever be able to do what he does


I can't imagine anyone wanting to do what he does. Musically he's pretty terrible.

i didn't know anyone actually listened to that clown. i like the shredder virtuoso music like Paul Gilbert, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, but MAB is pure wanking garbage. it's mindless shredd with no emotion or feeling.

well, if you are as skilled as him then you can pretty much play anything. you might not want to be able to play two necks at once while standing on your head, but the fact that he can means he has learned to play the instrument pretty much perfectly, and proved he can do it better than most by playing two necks at once - which would take a ****load of practice!

It doesn't mean he learned the instrument perfectly, it means he can play scales really fast, pretty much anyone can do that after practicing for several years. From everything I've heard he's really skilled when it comes to stupid flashy crap, but can't really play expressively at all.

I don't like his music very much. There is not enough movement or melody in what he plays. His technique might also be too flawless. His playing is so clean that it sounds inorganic and unnatural. I'm impressed by his technique but not his music.

ahh but playing scales really fast also means you can play scales... really slow! and his solos like "No Boundaries" are mindblowing.

best guitar dvd you'll purchase is "rock discipline" by John Petrucci

the fact that he can play them slowly isn't really relevant, the point is I've never heard him play anything that sounded expressive or interesting at all, and I do listen to shred stuff. He basically just plays fast complicated stuff for the purpose of playing fast complicated stuff, which pretty much makes him a total hack.

that actually is a pretty helpful DVD, even if you don't like Dream Theater.

I am not a fan of him or anything, but I do think no boundaries has a very expressive intro, and the part where the background music drops out and he plays that really neo-classical sounding section is really cool too. Bottom line: you don't have to like his music, or find any emotion in it, but that doesn't mean other people can't either.

Do any of you "they only play fast. they are awful musicians" actually listened at least once to the work of the guys you criticize?
Please watch this. That's for sure not only shred. You may like it or not (I personally don't). But that for sure isn't mindless fast playing.

There are only a few shredders I can listen to and actually enjoy the music:

- Joe Satriani
- Paul Gilbert
- Buckethead

Cuz the music isn't all just wank, it has melody and awesomeness.

Just because you think so, it doesn't mean it's true. At all.

To say he's not good is just ****ing retarded. He's good at what he does just like people like David Gilmour are good at what they do.

It hasn't, actually. I said objective.
Everything that has been said against him is that his music is just "mindless shredding", which obviously isn't very objective, is it?

I would only ever listen to his stuff if he got a better hair cut. My mate has seen him before though, said he's a cool chap so I can't fault him

Quote by worton
im just woundering how much you thought that dvd would improve your playing lol


From my personal experience of buying and using the DVD, I would say that Speed Kills will improve your shredding speed. Alot of the posts seem quite negative and go off the subject(feeling etc.)

When I first saw Michael Angelo on youtube I thought his playing lacked melody and feel as well. He kind of grows on you. I don't think I really understood his genius at first. It's how you FEEL when you start playing that fast. It's like nothing else matters anymore :P
"I bought Speed Kills by Michael Angelo Batio at http://www.metalmethod.com/137-6.html , I can honestly say that my shredding is alot faster and very clean, I have been playing Metal for 20 years - James Erceg"

I got it.

MAB's a god.

EDIT:

MAB is a mindless shredder! Which is why he can play acoustic guitar really well? Why songs like Rain Forest are not only impressive and sound nice during sweeping but are also expressive?

Thread reeks of jealousy.
