This thread proves Gigatiran is awesome, and a lot more awesome than your average awesome. I bet he even owns a duster like Dennis Reynolds.

I'll take Gilmour's playing over Buckethead/Vai/Satchriani/insert shred player any day.

speed is not the most important thing, but sadly in todays music it has become very important that it can sacrifice melody just for the sake of shred

personally i hate bands that shred just for the sake of shredding, i find that music pretty boring

its ok to shred but one must use shred very carefully, and only when it can actually fit the song and complement it nicely, so the song isnt the shred but the shred actually forms part of the song, i dont know if u understand, very few bands can actually pull this off correctly

Gilmour says himself he isn't a fast player, but he is one of the best because of it.

Clapton's nickname came from when playing in Cream if he broke a string the rest of the band would keep the groove going and the crowd would do the slow hand clap thing, so they just started calling him Slowhand.
Whatever happened to sweet Jane?

Les Paul?

He is like ninety now after all.

He's actually pretty fast still. I guess he plays every week at some jazz club.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

yea, pretty much I saw someone mention them a while back, and of course I had to look em up and see what they're like I don't see how they call it metal, it doesn't really represent any musical style because it's so slow it can't have a melody or rhythm and it doesn't really convey any feeling, unless you can get something out of holding out some feedback for 5 minutes

Slowhand is not slow, watch his live concerts and he doesnt have a bad pace.

I would say Tracey Chapman, all her songs are pretty slow, but have decent guitar in them

to be honest in the UK underground scene, slow tempos are peaking in appearances.

i think slow music has much more passion than fast fast fast shred music,

Also, audiences are starting to appriciate the feel of the whole song more than how many notes are being played on the 6 stringer now.

Well this concerns metal anyway, actually maybe not for the 80s thrash kids who only believe in music at 220bpm.


Crowbar is a great example.
listen to the 2nd half of self-inflicted by them.
then you'll understand the term 'negi' ( it means negative)
