What is wrong with me? I've played guitar for over 2 years, heard about Shred guitarists such as Yngwie Malmsteen and Vai, but never actually paid attention. Until now.


I mean, god. Goodbye, other music... Hello shred!

Can anyone recommend some good shred albums/artists? Thanks

Guys... Please read.

I'm not asking for artists just yet, that's the actual recommendation thread.

I'm asking what kind of genres you'd use to divide the music this forum handles in (what genres/kinds of shred are there, what genres/kinds of prog, what genres/kinds of...) and how you would explain them to someone who doesn't know what it is.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

I personally would recommend one of Satriani's live albums, but you'll be disappointed when you hear it in the studio.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.
