Look at it this way- everyone rags on air guitar here because everyone can play guitar. If we were on a lawn mower forum, air guitar would be okay and they would ridicule air mowing.

WHY IS EVERYONE IN THE PIT A FUCKING METALCORE KID

No, you're not. There are alot of shredder in other genres too. Such as jazz/fusion, rock, even with acoustics.

Shred is usually reserved for metal, there's a fine line between shred and flamenco...Shred is in metal exclusively IMO.

Meh. I'd say there's a lot of guitarists in Spain who could out-shred nearly any metalhead.

Bull****.
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.

Says who?

Do me a favor and shut up, you obviously haven't a clue what you're on about.

It's a style, not a genre, dimwit.

Oh and redaxe, just chill dude, a board is a place where you express your views, and respect others. If others don't respect yours, just leave em. Hate multiplies Hate.

I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

Several points - the Les Paul was obviously not designed for metal and shredding, since metal obviously didn't exist in 1952. Shredding guitars (superstrats with thin necks and locking trems) were designed in the 80s in order to accomodate this new style of playing. But by no means does this mean you can't shred on a Les Paul. A good guitarist can shred on a Squier Strat.

The 'shred' terminology is usually associated with hard rock and metal guitarist. Explosive, fast soloing is nothing new. It's been present in many other forms of music such as classical, jazz, bluegrass, and other ethnic styles such as flamenco. However, none of them include the use of heavily distorted guitars and gutteral wails, screams and harmonics found in what I would consider shredding. To me, that's what shredding is.

That being said, I've seen guys tearing up the fretboard on nylon string classical guitars in ways that would make most modern-day shredders cry like little girls. I know some guy in a bluegrass band that play INSANELY fast music. A guy I work with plays mandolin for that bluegrass band and even his mando playing is insanely fast and complex. I don't like bluegrass, but man, these guys can tear up their intruments. I don't consider it shredding in the same sense, but man, there are some seriously talented guitarist out there that have nothing to do with rock music.

Well, Mod's are in general picked for their knowledge on the subject/sexual favours to other mods, and when watching over a forum all day, you'd be sure to pick up some knowledge either way.

Hmm ok this is my last post in this thread, I guess no one respects the fact that I said "IMO" in my post, which stands for In my opinion. If the big scary mod with the green name who can ban me doesn't like that then I dont give a damn but it's a my opinion. I come to this forum to share my opinion on guitars and such and if idiots cant live with the fact that I perhaps have a different opinion than them then tough. Deal

oh my, all this discussion about shred...
I don't even like real shredders...that's IMO of course

on-topic : I think shredding is possible on a LP...why wouldn't it be?
#35
I played a Gibson ES-335 once, and there's no doubt that the tone and the sustain and singing highs that can come from it can be used for shred, however, the necks are no Wizard IIIs , they're sticky and fat. That guy from Godsmack shreds a bit and uses a (nice) black LP

Yngwee or however you spell it, as well as Eric Johnson have used ES-335s in their careers at some point or another, and and ES 335's neck is about the same as that of a Les Paul.
