Ritchie Blackmore kindof started the whole trend. So if you're looking for beginning influences, check him out. Vai does one cool piece, called Eugene's Bag, and you can find it in the movie Crossroads or off his cd Elusive Light and Sound. Trans-Siberian Orchestra is also another favorite, as is Nightwish. Definitely check out their cover of Phantom of the Opera.

Best way to do neo-classical, though, in my opinion, is to go through old classical parts, especially piano and violin, and come up with your own arrangements to stuff. Pagannini = violin master. So hit him up for sure. Carol of the Bells is a good piece to start with, which is why it's been done over and over again. Same with Canon in D. Musicals are also a good way to go too. Keep to the darker ones, they have the sound you're looking for. Phantom and Jekyll and Hyde are two of my personal favorites. For Jekyll Hyde, get the two cd version, as some call it "the gothic version." It's the darkest of them all. If you want to send me an email or something, I could probably send you the better tracks. DSPShadow@gmail.com. There's so much practice you could get actually reading music, learning complicated parts, and excercising creativity in composing with a neo-classical bent, I guarantee you getting into it will make you a better guitarist. Good luck bro.

I didn't think his stuff sounded neoclassical, but that could be due to every note being played at about 20 nps with some at 33 nps.

EDIT: Btw, you might wanna check out Jimmy Page. He's probably the best neoclassical shredder out there.

For Neo-Classical, I'd say Jason Becker, Cacophony, Batio, Yngwie, Yngwie, and some more Yngwie. Check out the suggestions that the other guys gave you also.


And let's not turn this thread into one of those "but Neo-Classical isn't REALLY Neo-Classical threads."

^I'd hardly call Paganini NEO-classical, he was just classical. The guy was a shredding genius of his times, bless that man. Nothing beats his 24th caprice...

i'm just waiting for resi to show up, name 30 unknowns, talk about how much more awesome vinnie and tony's fusion/later stuff was better.



Mmmmmnah. I don't know/have probably forgotten many of the neoclassical one trick ponies

Aaaaaaaaaaanyway... Anyone should start out with good old J.S. and J.C. Bach.

Bach is more baroque than neo-classical.

Besides, I think in the context of this thread, "neoclassical" refers to classical influenced rock.

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

seriously, I hope that's a joke. Jimmy Page != neoclassical, and Jimmy Page != shredder. end it there.


It's an obvious Joke.

EDIT: Perhaps not? v. I don't know, not big on Led Zeppelin. I thought he was anything but neoclassical.

On Topic: You may want to check out Yngwie's Live, "Concerto Suite For Electric Guitar And Orchestra In E Flat Minor Op. 1 - Millennium" album. It's full of Neoclassical goodness with the added bonus of the Orchestra

Jimmy has incorporated some classical themes into his work, you just need to look outside Led Zeppelin.

Recommending Jimmy Page in a shred forum...

I know it´s pretty hard to tell who´s the fastest or best guitar player in the world but i would say Shawn Lane, Petrucci or Page.

Who do you think is the fastest one if not one of these three??

and that would be? I'm curious, post Zeppelin, the only two projects I've heard that he's been involved in, was the short-lived Firm, and then after that, collaborating with Plant and recording a live album.

Well, take it from me that this is the area of Jimmy Page's work I know LEAST about, but I've read that there are such examples on some of the collaboration albums he's done, of which of course, I couldn't name any, so I might be wrong.
