So i love to play fast lead guitar but im not that into listening to it. It seems there are a zillion guys on youtube doing the fast leads but when you go to local gigs there are rarely any shredders.

Is it old or overdone? Do you detest shred playing? I guess wanking is an appropriate name for it.

Wanking is defined in my area as playing obnoxiously, just to show off, noodling, soloing where there is no solo in a song, totally flipping the solo of a song around (say we're listening to "Every breath you take" by the police, someone adding whammy's and "shredding" in it is a no no). It is frowned upon in most societies.

Pentetonic wanking is frowned upon ten times more.

I prefer melodic solos. I can't stand players who can't lay down a decent lead line, and ones who use wah for every single solo. So, yes, I dislike seeing people publically wanking.

I've said it before and I'll say it again (Actually I've never said it before but it's more rhetorically effective to pretend I have) - 'Oh god not another thread about how there's no soul in shred and how awesome teh s0ulz is'

wanking wankers, yeah, drives me nuts when they don't have any emotion or clue how to be melodic. This is the case with 90% of shred and many other genres as well. I hate blues rockers who play the same stupid generic licks over and over and think they are godly. Cobain had more soul than most of em.

Well that may be true, but the one with real soul would be, TOM DELONGE, ditching friends for music. that takes balls and soul.


Nvm, that isnt true

Why does everybody hate the pentonic scale? IT"s all you freaking need, unless you suck. If you need a certain sound, ADD MORE NOTES. It's an easy scale to add notes to. As long as you know your way around the fretboard, and you don't just play the scale straight, it's great.

Anyway, if you play fast just to play fast, I'm not going to listen to you. If playing fast fits what you're doing/mixes with other kinds of playing in a solo, so be it. But don't play fast just to be fast.

If you add more notes to the pentatonic scale, then it isn't the pentatonic scale anymore.

So? I'm not some kind of music theory person who prefers everything prefecto and stuff. I like things to sound good, and if they don't, I change the way they are played.

Then don't say that the pentatonic is "all you freaking need, unless you suck".

I wasn't arguing that any solo that uses pentatonic scale is instantly bad. I think the pentatonic is a great scale to start with, and makes learning the major scale and major scale modes far easier. I like many solos that use the pentatonic scale, and I think it is a great choice for when you want to go for that definitive "rock" sound.

I was just saying that you seem to have inadvertently used lots of different scales in your musical career, so shouldn't say that only one scale is the only one anyone needs.

Sure, but the penatonic scale is definately for more than a 'rock sound'. Tat makes is sound like it's for retards who can't play anything and aren't sophisticated.

edit: But I agree.
