It was boring. Sorry.

I'm sorry sir, that post was unnecessary and insulting to the TS, thus it is spam, which is prohibited by the forum's rules.
Thank you.

yeah, we've all been there.

but right when you think you've done something awesome, someone has to come, give you a slap and show you how much you still suck and how far you have to go.

music is more than just playing notes at the right time, and we all have to learn that
remember, criticism isn't personal

How so? He just gave an opinion. That's not against the rules.

I personally didn't like it very much either. I mean yeah it was cool, and that dude can play guitar, but it really was kinda boring.

Props though, keep working at it dude.

The part at 2.37 was painful.
The rest wasn't bad, just nothing special.

The beginning was cool apart from the rhythm guitarist awful clean tone and out of time playing.

I liked the riffs you came up with for the most part until the shredding started. No offense, but it was very very cliched and pretty much what you see everyone doing. The key to guitar solos and improvising is contour and variety. Not just fastly played scales with no real meaning.

Throw in some legato licks, melodic bluesy stuff, fast sweeping, anything to keep the listener engaged more than just fastly playing basic licks, which no offense are not that hard to play. To me what makes a lick hard is not how fast it is but more complex fingerings and techniques that are harder to play cleanly.

It's not hard to play a pentatonic lick or 16th note scale run fast and clean, but trying playing something really quirky and unusual like a greg howe lick and see how much harder that is.

And I really am not a fan of how you stop playing every 20 seconds and raise your hand in the air like you are paul gilbert or something. Just play man, you shouldn't have to do some sort of gesture to cause the crowd to cheer, this is not 1985 and you are not in a hair metal band.

Still I got to give you props, you played in front of people and you played cleanly, good luck in the future.

I felt lethargic after a 1:00 .. Understand the need for Variety.. I'm not a shredder, but I would have liked to have seen some more technique Other than just speed picking scales.. IMHO, the true melodic shredders such as Joe Satriani, steve vai, etc... have a Mastery of Legato and sweeping skills.. to my ears at least. (to expand on the speed picking comment) .. I find that unless speed picking is sparingly used to lightly flavor a guitar piece, It makes the whole thing sound Amateur and completely recycled..


credit to you though for your Clean playing and obvious talent !!!

What the f**k is you problems?
Yes, I made an account to ask this question. Is it really that weird? No. I wanted some feedback from some proper guitar experts who knew what they were talking about. Sorry, I guess I was wrong.

How I feel exactly.

All the best shredders have a very melodic side to them as well. Guys like Andy Timmons are a great example. That guy gives me a tonegasm every time i listen to him.

Yeah, i clearly understand you...haha, raising me hands was just for the fun of it...haha


Yeah, i do work hard at playing cleanly....i do have a lot of recordings which i dont do these kind of stuff....thing is, when i plan before playing, and play on the spot, i play differently...

When i'm recording, i do think of the emotion behind it, the groups of notes workin together and my soul put into it...

But these vids i put up are nothin planned at all....i'm playin right there on the spot, what you see is what you get, every mistake and stuff...the thing is whenever i start playin on the spot, i go to this natural mode of note blasting, things i'm comfortable with instead of pulling off some 'dirty' playin....
