nope, being musically talented and being a talented guitarist are 2 different things imho, you could spend 12 hours a day practicing guitar, untill you were the fastest player ever, and still have all the musical ability of a tone deaf kangaroo

It's not wankage.

Why does everyone dismiss ANY ****ING SHREDDING as mediocre wank bullshit that anyone can pull off given enough time?

This guy has melody in his shredding. Wank, as far as I know, is a term to describe something that has very little melody if any at all.

imo, being a talented guitarist means you have control over what you play. anyone with a decent sense of music will know when and when not to do things. inane players like this one may be fast, but they have no control over the actual notes they play. rather, they are enslaved by their instruments and hence why they sound boring.

It is wankage. It's just arpeggio shapes constantly repeated and mediocre 4-note combinations. I'm not ignorant towards shred guitar, I live for shred guitar.

This video, however, was not inspiring or interesting at all.

Compared to me, he's a great player(technically). But, it's boring as hell, and I don't like it. Sorry Constantine.

LOL.

I learnt that solo for the purpose of showing everyone at my school that Dragonforce aren't THAT technically proficient, and that they're not gods.

But No, I agree, you would win if I were to play that in a guitar duel.

I thought his melody was pretty cool, but repetative.

He over did it with the arpeggios. He made my feet tap, so it was cool to me.
