I was wondering if he would be considered a fusion shredder or just a shredder? What do you all think?

Why is it important to categorise?
Edit : Yeah, and he was NOT JUST a "shredder"

Would Shawn Lane be considered Fusion?



Hmm...well, I know that the combining of atoms would be considered fusion...

I think so, yes. Amongst other things. Mind you, not a fusion "shredder", just fusion... Amongst other things, again.
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.

^ well, he's certainly done "fusion" but also straight up 80s rock and bebopish stuff and that poppish nonsense on POT - so i suppose you could call him fusion, but simply put, he isn't fusion. Some of what he played was.

I mean, if i play some Meshuggah, does that make me metal?

WTF????

I do agree with the rest of what you said though, Shawn Lane cannot be categorized. He's done some fusion, some straightforward rock, some straightforward jazz (bootlegs) even, some classical, some Indian, some this, some that, he incorporated a lot of styles in his playing.

edit : Just read the previous posts, so I forgive you, and I will eat an ice cream in your honour

Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
