He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

The speed. Yes. Thats all.
I just enjoyed playing seriously fast rythym guitar for the past year and then i believe I saw a malmsteen video and thought "I can pick that fast" and then found myself severly wrong, but intruiged by the speed.
Now, as im learning lead, im appreciating shred a little more - cant say i'd ever be a shredder, but i certainly appreciate what they do. And i like the principles of certain shred techniques, if not their use in shred. So im going to steal them!


But if anything will actually get me into shred, its gonna be rusty.

I heard about artists, mainly satch, vai and yngwie, heard some of there stuff and liked it. I've only really gotten into it this year though.
I was bad with usernames at age 12. Ah woe.

I had heard about Vai and Satch, but never heard their stuff, so I bought a G3 dvd. I really liked it a lot. I also saw speed lives and though "I'm gonna play like that". That was about 2 months ago. I have no idea who some of these shred artists you guys talk about are, because I'm new to shred. The main reason I like shred is because I know it is the genre that is guitar based and involves the most technique.

I got into DT, not for the shred but for the awesomeness of it. Then I realized how fast he was playing, and I was like psh I'll never do that. Then I came to the shred/prog forum and realized that it is possible to be good when you're young, then I started practicing a lot. Hm what a story
#56

then i saw this forum........... and ive bin intrigued ever since. i still suck though................ but i finally got sweeping........yay for me

I tried a JEM the other day at a guitar center, they had the damn thing sitting in the front of the store!! I was like "someones gonnn steal this thing"!!! But I tried it out for a couple of hours, It has to be one of the most comfortable guitars I have ever played. perfect sound, look, fret action, tremolo is perfect, but the only bad thing is the price.
By becoming one with the guitar I will cease to exist as I am now, only to be reborn as a god to rule over every soul

I felt like I had gained the power to rule the world when I played that guitar...

I played on a JEM a lot because my guitar teacher give it to me for a couple of days, I only had a squier that time and I was in a national guitar contest so couldn't use that one without being ashamed. It's a great guitar.
I couldn't tell you no lies
#70

Shred is not aobut speed imo. It is a type of tone and sound of the palyer and what notes u would hit if u play shred guitar.
#73
Its about speed as well as those things though, but you have a point.

evidently. if you played the C major scale over 2 octaves, in 16th notes, followed it up by a simple Am sextuplet sweep, and the played a Dm pentatonic lick all at a nice and respectable 170-200 bpm, it'd be considered shredding... basically shred guitar doesn't demand you use any partickler scale or such, it's a style of guitar playing not a genre.
