How about Images !
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.

^Images > Concerto

Imo Go Off! is only based on speed, so are lots of other cacophony songs. I prefer becker's solo career way over his cacophony stuff
#88

The Animal and Bad Horsie

one i don't like of his is The Reaper

My question are there any of your who are left handed shredders? and I also can't think of any big name ones..so help me out dudes
#100
I'll post it here again :

Noobs are welcome in here, with questions about shred, no stupid lines like : 'slash is 10 times as fast as angelo' so don't flame the ones with questions... or I will report you
#102
i dont shred, but i like to play with my low E tuned to the key of the piece. BADGBE has lead to great stuff. I once used straight 4ths as well, because i accidently tuned it wrong (at about one month, lol). I use Drop D a lot, and honestly, most people bashing drop D hate it because they dont understand it.
My favourite odd tuning however, is my out of tune minature guitar - its plastic, cost 50p at a school sale, and has a total range of four and a half steps, from low E to open high E. Its a great exercise to work with a untuned guitar and get something good sounding out of it. And no, it cant physically BE tuned.
I dont think many shredders will shred in altered tunings - its too much for their feeble minds to work out EVERY arpeggio and scale all over again.
Lol, basically, they need practice in them...

Pssh...you like Nirvana, so quiet, you! ;-) Kidding. But, I suppose I could see why you don't like Bad Horsie. I like it, but to each his own.

And actually...I'm a mixolydian fan. of course, i just mixed up lydian got mixolydian..


Heh...heh....sorry. had to.
And Harmonic minor. Still working on shredding with that though...haven't gotten to the point where it sounds good with shred.
Sorry, I have to point out that what I play is rarely "shred," as in Cooley or Becker, I play more of the instrumental virtuoso style of "shred." So for straight of shredding, AKA cool sounding scale running ;-), I like Chromatic and Dorian. You can get some REALLY cool sounds out of Chromatic, jazzy stuff, indian stuff...just gotta play random notes, and then remember em if they sound good, and reuse those licks!

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

Bad Horsie is a Vai classic , but there is better songs by Vai , I think FTLOG is overrated tho...easy to play, theres a lot harder, and better stuff then FTLOG.
#108
im not saying ftlog is hard lol, its just that bad horsie seems to be the same repetitive distorted chords or watever over alittle bit of playing. btw ya, i need to make a new username cuz this is so like.. 4 months ago. lol. well, i just got into shred and out of *shi77y* music i guess you could say. are tehre any rules against making new acounts (when you are NOT banned)

Well, if you believe everything the average UG'er says, they're all as good as Vai.

Ok question: What the hell is that thing that Angelo does on Speed lives when he starts waving his hand around in air and
pokes the fretboard every once in a while?
#117
Its just him showing off, its not a technique.
I was bad with usernames at age 12. Ah woe.
#118
im as good as Vai at improv.

nah, but i presume you mean improv shred solos - hard as **** - unless you want to sound like a scales exercise.

Otherwise, just play all your technique exercises ever, really fast.

But improving in general is easy, its 9/10 of what i do to come up with stuff.

Depends on what I'm improvising, like blues and straight out rock I find easy, but shred I find extremely difficult(at the mo)

its one of his tricks called the "over-under", basically he moves his hand and hits notes with his hand below the fretboard, then hits a note with his hand above the fretboard...if that helps
