In 20 years... what do you think would happen to shred? Steve Vai getting white hair to match his JEM? Paul Gilbert actually telling kids to get out of his yard? John Petrucci becoming jazz? (I'm so bored I could hump a couch.....)

I think it would still be just as boring, bar a couple of artists.

Nothing, it's just that I predict that when he gets kinda bored of Dream Theater, he will want more complex music.

shred will have come and gone again in mainstream music, will be ever popular in some underground styles of music, and will still be looked down upon, whereas any violinist/saxophonist, or other musician of sorts, will be looked at as a virtuouso in the public eye for playing a million notes a second.

Also, G3 will probably include herman li at some point.

^nah there will probably be a metal-shred version of G3 with the likes of Trivium, dragonforce, and other so called 'shredders'. Ugh!


i think some shredders will infiltrate the mainstream somehow by being in bands that appeal to the mainstream but with obvious virtuosity thrown in. e.g The Mars Volta or something similar.

G3 with Herman Li

Well, lets hope he gets a bit more variety in his sound by then.... for it is a scary thought.....

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.

Steve Vai will go into the mountains with his JEMs, UVs, and Carvins to live a life of musical solitude, and look much like an older version of himself in the For The Love Of God video.

Kirk Hammett will learn a different scale and techniques other than hammerons and pulloffs and become a shredder.

And SnakeDawg will be renowned

Rusty Cooley will get better.
Paul Gilber will get better.

But in return, old age will get its claws into McLaughlin and Holdsworth, and will kill them within our lifetimes.

Lets hope someone comes worthy to replace them.

I'd say Guthrie, Mattias, and Thal(And of course others, but they'll be the new Vai, Satch, Petrucci, Malmsteen, etc) are probably going to be leading this generation of shred for a while. Because they're still in their mid to late thirties, so they sill have lots of years left, unless something unfortunate happens. This is of course all theory.

Paul Gilbert will give Herman Li lessons on phrasing and note selection, while Sam Totman will give up the beer and look to John McLaughlin for inspiration, and then Dragonforce will reach their full potential.

I wish.

Well I honestly think the great shredders will die, only to be replaced by half assed semi mainstream ones, such as the before mentioned. But the souls of the dead shredders will be encapsulated (is it a word?) within a soul-sphere. They'll die off one by one via rank. Until the original circle of shredders is complete within the soul-sphere, then it return to the astral plane to remain there for 100 years before the soul of each original shredder will be reincarnated each on a different continent. To begin an underground shred revolution once again, so that people will realized shred within DF and Trivium is not really shred.

yea..........thats exactly how it would go down.........

I'm pretty sure Nu-Metal will not come back any time soon, it's on it's last leg right now.

Hopefully it will never come back, it seems that every 10 or so years some new bastardized form of metal gains commercial sucess.

Players who can shred w/ feeling and not just technique impress me and always will. I was fortunate to grow up listening to Yngwie and unfortunate to hear the many clones thereafter. Joe Stump has the potential and a handful of other guitarists do so also

I am 42 and have played since 1977 so I may look at things differently then the younger crowd. Just like metal, it will never go completely away. The real question is who will be next to take it to the next level. I cannot understand how people can look down on another player who is more technically proficient, usually that is because of jealousy or lack of skill.

Playing guitar is about enjoying yourself and having the right to express and share it. You don't have to like it but respect it for what it is

I listen to Baroque organ right through to the most brutal music and find good things in them all to learn from. A guitar has only so many possible notes, the truly creative can utilize those notes in ways most of us may never approach but still inside makes you shake...

I have seen and met Yngwie in person many times over the years and arrogant or not (he was actually a great person to talk with and was quite willing to discuss technique), there is very few who can match his prowess and none that I know of that capture his style and intensity fully. He had the same burning desire to play just like all of us so in that we can all relate

The best guitar player is an innovator, everyone else is just a copycat

Look at it that way and a greater appreciation of playing styles comes into focus

Gotta disagree. Firstly with the statement, then with the logic.

Shurely you'd only end up with a greater appreciation with the originators of the playing styles? And perhaps less appreciation of the others?

Personally, i think yngwie's a better player than his clones, and thats why he's the best. But some other playing styles have players that far exceed the originator in every respect - i mean, Hammet or Cooley?
