How would you define "tasteful" shred? Obviously not what's in my profile (Shred guitar skill mp3). Also, how would you achieve that?

Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society) tastefully shreds. No this is not a joke. (Flame shield)

anything that fits in naturally, not just "this part is shred cause i want to shred"

think "lotus feet" or "whispering a prayer" by steve vai.

if you like it, it's tasteful.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

pretty much. no "forced" solos or leads that just don't fit. those are awful. a slow bluesy song doesn't need a ripping solo in the middle of it i think Paul Gilbert's "Rusty Old Boat" and "Full Tank" are a good example, i think

That.


People have different tastes, so it's whatever you like. One might think a solo is completely unnecessary, while another may think the same solo is awesome and completely necessary.

i personally hate it whenever someone pontificates about a certain player having "no soul", or not being "tasteful", because at the end of the day, both of those things are subjective. and more often than not, that same person won't allow other people to criticise his/her favourite players.

i think the TS meant more melodic in which case Joe Satriani and Steve Vai even some of the new buckethead stuff. although i`m not a fan of buckethead i have heard a couple of songs off the new album and think he`s chilled out a bit.

yeah, i know. even that is subjective, though. I'm sure there's stuff I like and consider to be melodic which some other people would consider to be "mindless shredding", though. I mean, plenty of people consider ANY satch or vai to be mindless shredding.
