I don't recommend passive pickups for any kind of blues tone. Ideally, you'd want a passive pickup with a reasonably low level of output.

well to me melodic playing has feeling and meaning and i guess you can say theory is used in them

solos with feeling to me are november rain (both solos), farewell ballad, fade to black intro solo, basic all james hetfield solos, ect.

it can be fast, just has to have a melodic feel to it if that makes any sense

That makes absolutely no sense. "Shredding" is melodic by definition, and "feel" is entirely subjective.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

^ shredding is NOT melodic "by definition".... but it certainly can be, and often is melodic. If any one word could be used to define shredding it would be..... fast.

anyway TS, why not just have a solo competition and include any style? That way you don't get caught up in definitions or opinions of what things are.
shred is gaudy music

lol so im guessing by melodic you ment something that actually goes somewhere. so not fast for the sake of fast and no wanking? either way, i think ill cook something up if we get some other people interested. but then again, if its just me i guess i win by defult

"The Preacher and the Clown" as found in the mp3 player, track #4.

Solo starts at 3:36 - ends at 4:28.

I was going for a "November Rain" meets "People Get Ready" (w/Jeff Beck) kind of vibe. I was happy with the result.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?
