BTW, is he more of a Legato or Alternate Pickin dude ??

Trascendental Rippage !!!
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Not a fan. His phrasing (I find) gets repetitive and boring after a while, and I hate his tone with a passion.

However, I fully respect his work and his level of technique (even though Holdsworth still pwns his arse sideways).

Really? I find his phrasing one of the things I love about him.

He does some crazy patterns ala two picked notes, then pull off, for 3 nps licks. And other weird, but awesome sounding stuff. I think his Instructional video explains some of his picking licks. It's on video.google I believe.

I'm not so much a fan of some of his music as his technique. I'm a Gambale man.

WTF ?? How can you do both legato and alt picking while string picking licks that spand over 10 frets ??
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.

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.

I've tried to like this guy. I've listened songs by him and gave him a chance, but his music just makes me want to puke. Everytime he plays fast, it's just a big blur of notes that sound completely out of place (to me at least). Okay, he has a few strong melodies, like in the Gray Pianos Flying, but otherwise... yuk.

I find it odd that some of the regulars here are saying they don't care for him that much. I could have sworn that a couple of months ago, Lane was the end-all-be-all in this forum. Then a big Paul Gilbert fetish followed, and Guthrie Govan was next I think.

Anyway, I don't really care for him that much.

Lane's picking technique was the "end-all-be-all" of this forum a few months ago, but never his music.

^ no his music too. A bunch of you guys were ranting about how his music is always positive sounding, and how it makes you feel happy, etc etc. Amazing songwriter, shame he died kinda thing. Like i said for me, some good songs, his improv is gross, bu thats what everyones sayin now .

Not that I can remember... I certainly never attested to liking his music very much.

And of course it's a shame he died, and of course he was a great guitarist, but that doesn't mean I'm saying he was a great songwriter

Aye, tends to happen when you leave your pc on only to find you've looped the same track for two hours... The only reason it's not topped more often is I listen to very diverse music, so not enough of one track to push it off of there.


Smartass.

Yeah, steal from the guys ****ing mother. I'll tell you what, seeing as he had to gig twice a night to support his family, he really wouldn't mind you stealing from what profits would go directly to them after his death.

****ing sickos. I hope you like your ass kicked, because theres going to me and shawn lane double-teaming you the minute we meet in the afterlife.

Anyway, i love the guy, love his music, love his impro fast and slow, love his technique and approach to music and the physical side of playing, love his general lack of aggression and anger in his work, and think that, while overrated, he's certainly my favourite guitarist by a long shot, and for justified reasons.

Seriously, after stalking him for about a year now (i think!) i'm still finding out new stuff that he pwns at. Suit yourselves, holdsy boys, but lane's my no.1.


And for ****s sake, he didn't really ever stretch 10 frets, he had a slightly smaller reach than I do, and i can't stretch 10 frets below the 11th. 8 frets, but generally he had scary ability within that reach that i'll never acheive.

"it"? He used the term "transcendental technique" as Lizst did - to explain that there was stuff you just can't do if you aren't born to it.

I mean, by judging how lots of people view Lane's speed and transcendetal abillity, it's starting to make me doubt that I have talent (which also encouraged to practice harder)....

And all those websites saying that people like Lane only pop up once every now and then.... (as in millenias)......

How about people like Holdsworth, Garsed, and Rusty Cooley ?? Is that talent ??
