You don't need to be fast to be concidered good (though it sure helps). Look at some of the greatest guitarists and they don't necessarily play fast: Hendrix, Santana, Clapton ("Slowhand" come on!!!), Slash.

and don't worry, i'm in the same situation as u are.

So that is why you spread such lies! If you are not faster than Batio than you suck.

Ok man don't be stupid, playing fast is just another tool in guitar playing. It helps build intensity as you get to your target note, it puts some variety in your playing, and has many other notable uses.

i agree with this because i am the same way. im a rhythm guitarist and i cant play that fast. It doesnt mean i suck.

Notice only rythem players are saying that speed doesn't mean good... I see a lie going around to make them feel better themselves.

Rants usually consist of well thought-out arguments and intellectual writing, that was more 'having a bitch'.

Anyway, playing fast doesn't mean anything. You could teach a monkey to shred, but that doesn't mean that the monkey will ever be good at guitar. Perfecting techniques isn't a talent, it's hard work but can be achieve by mostly anybody. Creating music is where the talent lies.

Yes, being able to play fast makes you a good guitar player.

But being able to incorporate slow and melodic parts in with the fast playing, makes you a great guitar player.

Dude did you even read my ****ing post! Yes I agree that Yngwie is excessive but he has established himself as a brilliant guitar player and composer already! Listen to Black Star, Brothers, Adagio, or better yet check out the dvd he did with the Japanese Philharmonic Orchestra. Although it can get a little boring at times, you can clearly see his extraordinary skill.

You're a ****ing retard.
Just because Yngwie plays fast doesn't mean its not melodic at all. Have you ever heard Black Star, or Far Beyond the Sun? doubt it.

And I highly doubt you've listened to Dragonforce for more than 30 seconds. Go listen to Disciples of Babylon and Prepare for War. And stop making bullshit posts.

Well, then what are you complaining about! If you don't like the music than of course your going to develop a disdain for it and criticize it unless you come to realize the beauty in it like I did! Seriously go look for ones that you like and work your way up. I used to hate: Iron Maiden, Steve Vai, Dream Theater, and plenty of other great bands until it just clicked for me.

Exactly. As much as it pains me to say this, when I first heard Satriani I just wasn't interested. I thought all his songs sounded the same. However, that's because I hadn't attuned my ear. Now I worship Satch, he's my favourite guitarist and I've been to see him live. That only happened because I listened to a lot more of his music.

Good is subjective. Just like Hendrix being good, some people think he was good, others, myself included, think he was rather lame.

Lol, I was the opposite of you, I loved Satch from the moment I heard Crystal Planet! Granted there were some songs I didn't like till later on. By the way, are you going to the G3 this year, its going to be awesome! I want to go but I don't think they're going to come anywhere near El Paso .

It may never click. But to call someone's music emotionless just because you think he plays to fast is just idiotic.

Another misconception is that some people believe "if its not slower than 100 bpm, and doesnt have enough bends, its emotionless".


I'm not argueing with you, but most people are stupid.
