no really, who the **** is this dude? i found this video on a shredding thread and my ears almost blead.

FYI, i'm not from this scene, i'm actually a DJ but have a recent interest in rock. he has great technique but this sweep picking solo is ridiculous. is this even respected in the music community or is this dude a joker?

He's probably showing off in that video. Check out his other stuff. And as for threads, there was just one made. Look 4 topics down.

thats kinda gay. in the dj world that's the equivalent of 'crab' scratching for 4 minutes, its just unnecessary. it was soleless.

He's saying it was wank using a comparison to wanker DJ's.

Yeah listen to Apoc. He knows what he's talking about.

I don't think Cooley is wank. :'( His sweeps can be quite melodic.

I'm just the middleman...

You guys didn't understand what he was trying to say, and I told you.

>_>

I don't think he's too wanky either.

Well i think his work is good, showed up numerous times in Guitar Technique mag, and yeah he's pretty good at sweeping floors...or guitar. What i kinda dont like is when he's going too excessive or went overboard and just sweeps the hell out of his fretboard.
