K i was bored and just wondering, where is the oddest place youve ever heard some loverly shreddin?

I mean, as in, it can be a place where you heard a shred song (i.e. For the love of god playing in your supermarket ), it can be a song you did not expect to have shredding in at all (Bad pop music with pg on guitar maybe?), or a concert/band/person at guitar center you did not expect to be shreddin, whatever, be creative.

Anyways, bad 80s music videos and B.B. king for me.
I was watching vh1 classic, and lots of old 80s dance tunes had some bitching crazy guitar work in it, and somewhat tasteful too. Also the outtro solo to Twilight zone by golden earring, dunno if its guitar or keyboard, but ive copped a few licks from it.

Also, when i saw bb king with bobby blue bland, bobbys guitarist warmed up with some sweet fast jazz licks, and a fair bit of sweep picking, and not just typical arps. Not really shred, but we all like jazz here, so it was pretty cool, considering he was so clean.

Also, random odd punk bands, especially japanese ones, tend to throw shred into their songs, or at least maidenesque harmonies.

Someone I don't know wore a Vai shirt to my school several times last year if that means anything.

But I don't think he goes to our school anymore.

I don't want to say "emo," but I will anyway...

Some gay emo band was playing at my school's talent show, and right at the peak of their song's homosexuality, the guitarist started shredding.

Also, not really shred (at all), but Kerry King was in some Sum 41 video.

(i.e. For the love of god playing in your supermarket ).



Believe it or not, this actually happened. I work ( part-time, I'm still in school) as a manager in a supermarket, and I found myself getting increasingly frustrated with the songs on the radio. Pop music is one thing, but hearing the same songs three times in four hours made me bring some cd's and play them there. For the love of God was one of the songs.
I also played some Symphony X ( Inferno) there once, but that didn't work out that well with the customers... (" Welcome to the Anarchy.." Very appropriate lyrics ) So back to pop music it was

Talking about the radio: one other cool thing was that I heard a Sun Caged song on a radio station, accompanied with a Marcel Coenen interview. Cool stuff.

Well, I heard Steve Vai saying "Hello, this Steve Vai and you're listening to Radio Helsinki" on radio a while ago. I was pretty freaked out!

When I worked at a theme park and suddenly Colorado Bulldog came blasting through the theme park speakers.
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.

For a project we had to make a video, and when we were making it I didn't realise how loud my music was in the background, so through the whole thing you could hear Cliffs of Dover in the background. It was actually pretty funny because most people were listening to the music more than they were paying attention to the project

That song "Get Down Tonight" or whatever by KC and the Sunshine Band has a clean guitar at the beginning that was a little faster than I expected.

While it wasn't at a supermarket, I heard that song playing at an auto repair shop I walked by while I was out walking around the town. I stopped and leaned against the entryway just listening until the song was over. The guys working kept looking over at me and giving me weird looks.

can't beat this: in Joel Schumacher's movie adaptation of "Phantom of the Opera", during the title track towards the climax of the movie - I suddenly heard some dated cheesy shred licks. I was like "Wtf?!"


Phantom of the Opera? You mean Andrew Lloyd Webber? In that case it isn't that weird

Webber is imo 1 of the 2 best composers of last century (next to Oldfield), check out his rock opera movie "Jesus Christ Superstar"

Great great music, great vocals as well

The lyrics are written by Tim Rice in JesusCS, who also wrote a few other classics like Lion King and stuff like that

I highly recommend this movie, check it out guys

well I don't even know if the storyline is "correct", they have probably followed parts of it, but changed it as well.

I don't have a religion neither, but that doesn't really matter, even if you don't know anything about religion you'll still understand this movie, mainly because they won't go in detail much, only how Judas "betrayed" Jesus.

Music is good? The film=music.

I pointed out that it was a rock opera didn't I? In case you don't know, in opera's every word in sang/sung/sing or however the grammer works with that

ehh...maybe the best it's gotten is like The All American Rejects. It was mos def not shred, but the little guitar solos were much better than expected. Ill freak out now and then when Mr. Big comes on with the old love song. (the bass is so freakin awesome in that song if you listen hard enough...well, atleast compared to most other stuff on the radio)

I Only Want To Say is one of the worst songs, well it tells a lot, but the vocals are a bit meh.

And I was talking about the '73 version with Ted Neeley and Carl Anderson, not that new rippoff
