Hey, just seeing what people are thinking about Mark Tremonti, personally he is one of the greatest guitarists of today, and his band, Alter Bridge, have contributed something unique to the music scene. Zakk Wylde and the late Dimebag Darrell are also up there with Tremonti. Shred King? Or not? What do you think?

If he's the shred king then I am the master of shred and you shall all bow before me

Get real, loads of guys out there would slay him. He's alright, but he's nothing special.

I think you should take this to the Mark Tremonti, Creed & Alter Bridge thread. There are a lot of fanboys to agree with you in there. In the rest of UG, you're just going to get flamed for being lower on the evolutionary scale than lichen.

I don't even think he's good, to be honest.
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.

But there's a demonstration, for people who haven't seen him.


Wow... that was really not so good.

I know he takes lessons from Troy Stetina, but can't he play any licks that don't sound like they came straight from Speed Mechanics?

Eh...that solo is meh. It was mostly 1 string or open string tremolo picking. He did a few legato runs but if he was good he would've picked them.

Hah, I didn't say that

I was just hoping he'd be a bit more original with his playing, instead of ripping his instructor's licks.

Is Stetina the guy who writes the shred lesson column in Guitar One?

If so, then I agree he isnt very good. I've never found any of his lessons enlightening, encouraging, or impressively helpful.
#23
Yeah, I'd have to disagree with Tremonti being a shredder, let alone a "shred king"...

He's good at what he does in his band, but other than that, there's nuthin' much coming outta him imo

Well, he is talented, but doesn't show all of it in Alter Bridge and (before) Creed. Have you guys heard "Ahavo Rabo Taco Salad?" That song BLOWS everything he did in Creed and Alter Bridge out of the water IMO.

That means you haven't seen Alter Bridge live then


Or the simple fact is that he is far from the "shred king"?

Wow.. That solo was horrible to be honest. Half the people on this forum can shred better than that. Hes good as a rock guitarist but in no way is he a "Shred King." And Never will be.

Can't you just accept that just because you really like him, the rest of the world may not? Just because you like his music doesn't mean he's the god of the universe.

Holy, way to jump the gun a bit there dude. I'm actually a huge fan of theirs and Mark's (check profile). At the same time take a look at some real shredders and compare, I'm sure you can notice a difference, and if you can't, then let the lord have mercy on you.
Again, he's a great rock guitarist; awesome to listen to and a breath of fresh air amongst some of today's music, but "shred king"..........no

I don't think it's a matter of liking or not liking Creed or Alter Bridge, what you're saying is that Tremonti is one of the greatest guitarists ever and is a shred king, on top of that you're comparing to Wylde and Dimebag.

Tremonti is not and never will be a shred king or one of the greatest guitarists ever, you don't need to see the future to see that.
Also comparing him to them two is very silly, imo neither of them are shredders and on top of that Tremonti isn't even in the same league as either.

I really think you need to get out there a listen to more music and then compare it to Tremonti, if you're intelligent you'll realise there are alot of guitarists alot better than him, alot.

Lol! Well as zakhammetman wrote in another forum - "Then you're in the wrong thread. Tremonti has been setting standards for modern rock guitar and I love it!! He's got all the tools and uses them wisely." Hello? Who beat slash in a shred comp? Er, MT. Fair enough dimebag is great, but Tremonti's band are an individual band who are filling a gap in the world of music, there is no one like them. Throw rock hands up to Alter Bridge, Tremonti, and Wylde.
