Besides guitar and bass that is.

Seriously, what would you call show-off violin or drum playing? Or on any other instrument for that matter? Fingerboard-wanking makes no sense....

Yeah, true.

Also, only Paganini would sit there, in a prison cell and with a violin with only one string, and write a freaking good symphony. The dude was crazy. Good but crazy.

Edit: Despite the relevancy of sandwiches, I find this to actually be relevant. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eblB2-y23Dc&feature=related. I hope you can stand all the bloody high notes. He barely seems aware of the existance of the side of the neck by the scroll, on these two pieces anyway...

Applying the term wank to music is for people who don't have the vocabulary necessary to describe something they dislike with panache and style.



Over-indulgent? Unnecessary? Pedantic? Grandiose? Ostentatious? Apply any of those words to "soloing/playing" or anything else correlating to the performance of an instrument and that's all you need really.

good lord, paganini is like the equivalent of a kid with ADD hyped up on exstacy, speed and 20 cups of coffee destroying the shit out of a violin.

I mean, his pieces are unbeliveably hard to play, but he's the classical equivalent of rusty cooley; nothing but mindless shredding.

Yeah, definitely. Even his "slower" pieces are like Malmsteen trying to take a 3second shit.
Malmsteen: "1, 2, 3! Bam -- 600 notes."
Everyone else: "Dude, wtf?"

Paganini: "1, 2, 3! Bam -- 1,000 notes."
Everyone else: "Bloody hell! What's that wanker doing?"
