what do the frets actually do apart from seperating one note from another?

The guy on the right owns - I like his playing.

I couldn't hear the other guy playing to be honest - so I can't comment on it.
#4
omg, that guy was so like, i dunno, there was no feeling and it was just a bunch of random notes, there was absolutely no feeling whatsoever, and he was playing sloppily. Sure i can't play that fast, but unless i have feeling and evoke emotion i don't really care about it.

Sunburst guy, wasn't "shredding" or "sweeping"...he was simply putting his hand almost clenched over the strings, and hitting them in a downward pick motion.

I was expecting more of an angry response to the wanker on the left. If you look at the last Youtube comment you'll see my views posted in net-speak as I feel if he ever reads it he may be able to understand it.

This?

kid on the left, u son of a bitch what the **** is that? well done u can play fast but ur solos still sound as **** as someone whos never played a guitar before whos smashing their head against the bridge. uve spent years getting as fast as u are but u have no knowledge or feel for music. the guy on the right is TRYING to teach u but u are just trying to show off how 'good' u are but u end up looking like an arrogant prick. u are what gives shred a bad name, go choke on ur pubes u ginger ****


You are what gives shred a bad name.

Yeah the guy with black guitar knows what he's doing. The younger guitarist can shred but not well. Fast but not well. I'll give him points for wearing the exact same t-shirt that I'm wearing right now though.
#12
That guy with the sunburst guitar sounded like ****, the other guy was okay.

Neither were impressive though.

Omg my head. I think. I dont even know what to say. Poor bald guy, he had to sit through that, or stand rather. Towards the end you can see him laugh and hang his head in shame lol. The guy with the sunburst is such a poser. He just kept playing the same little arpeggio with a tap here and there and kept going even when the music stopped. Its a dark day for music lovers everywhere if this guy is our future.
#14
That is why shred has a bad name? That was nothing. Much bigger reasons are that:

1) The vast majority of people don't know the difference between "shredding" and "wanking".

2) The vast majority of the people believe that to "shred", one need only play extremely fast.

3) Tieing in to #2, the vast majority believe that playing fast is a means of showing off, and thus it sucks. And because they tie fast playing to "shred", their logic dictates that "shred" sucks. Thus giving it a bad name.

Those are just a few of the more important and valid reasons as to why shred has a bad name right now

The guy on the right was actually pretty good, but the guy on the left, DAMN! Fast as hell, but that was just ****ing horrible! Is it just me or was he playing the same 2 things over and over again?

I just have to say, What The F*ck ! ...if you're gonna play like that for the rest of your life you're better off DEAD. The sunburst guitar dude masked his tone too much i could barely hear a note...

I think this was at a booth somewhere and the black guitar dude was demo-ing, just thought that he'd take a volunteer from the crowd (coz the sunburst guitar still have the price tag on em), but turns out, the voluntered dude was just embarassing himself.

I believe at the end the black guitar dude said "he's crapping it out" or something...

What a joke, the kid w/ the sunburst axe wasn't even playing in key most of the time...
the other guy was pretty good tho, at least he knows his stuff...

All in all, that was pretty sad...
and that was not shred, it wasn't even wank: it just sucked

#22
wtf was that? the wanking nerd is ****ing ****ty, he's so repetive and his sweeps are like incredibly ****ty souding, that was 1 of the worst wanking shredder ive seen, the other guy was pretty decent tho, (one with the black guitar) No feeling also, here's a very feeling guitarist and good to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_AT-Vl9ZO0&search=steve%20vai%20windows%20to%20the%20soul

Yeah he definitley wasnt in key with the backing track, no phrasing, no melody, just bleh. Damn wanker, don't even wanna bother.

The guy on the right was pretty good. He reminded me of Joe Satriani a little (not that he was as good, he's just who came to mind). Especially when he did the tremelo scream that Satch does so often. His tone was good too; I could actually hear what he was playing (unlike the poser to his right).

^That is not the problem though.

The problem is these uneducated cretins who think stuff like that is "shred" or "shredding". Like the threadstarter, who thinks that video is why "shred" has a bad name, when it isn't even "shred" or "shredding" at all.

I think you're the ill-educated one here, not me. Infact, looking at some of your posts, I think you misunderstood what I'm trying to say.
I am not opposed to shred and this thread isn't here to say "haha shred sucks, here's your proof" whatsoever. I am a fan of shred.
The thread is trying to prove that many people out there classify that kind of video as shred. An arrogant kid trying to show off his speed with no musical feel. This is why shred has a bad name - when people think that this kind of playing is shred and therefore wont give it another look.

Well it does to me. A shredding machine (yes not in a metaphorical way) doesn't make beautiful music IMO. When people ask me what kind of music I like I often tell them I like technical melodic music or something like that because the word shred is deemed to give them that view of a rattling machine. In that case it doesn't matter what the word means to us but it does implie that to other people. My question was retorical.
#34
I know

My point was that you shouldn't give a **** what other people think it means...

And you didn't just say "shred", you just said a "shredding machine" which is quite a different wording and meaning from shred

But seriously, who cares what they think it means?

But you misunderstood what I was trying to say. I was never implying that it was your belief that shred sucked, nor did I say it. As I clearly stated in my first post, that video is not why shred has a bad name, nor are any videos like it. Shred has a bad name because of the vast misunderstanding as to what "shred" is. When they try to tag the word "shred" to such obvious wanking as that, the whole boiling ****-pot starts up again and we end up with these long and pointless debates arguing as to why so and so is/isn't shred.

bah...I hate these kind of topics. They always end up leading to why I hate using the word "shred". And please, don't think I'm coming off as an ass. I'm just disgruntled because of how these things always turn out.
