When I was growing up... artists and bands who has kick @$$ solos
where who I looked up to. I still get most of my inspiration from
the 70's (Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Hendrix...etc..). Im even
a big fan of metal...

Solos are my bread and butter....So now a solo question.

Who in the F*CK made it acceptable to just grab the scale/mode
from the key of the song and just play it as fast as humanly possible?
I think shredding is like feedback. It can be freakin awesome when
used well. Who started this rediculous bar trick 5 million note per
second bombardment of notes with no imagination or compositional
direction.

I have a time machine and one bullet....who gets it?

I don't know and I don't really care. I just know I love putting emotion and feeling into my leads and not always tearing the fretboard apart. Nothing beats a well-crafted, emotional lead.

hmm.....
Good question.
Just to spare us all, take out Skynyrd. If you get close enough, you can take out more than one member.

I personally like staying under the 12th fret for soloing. I like using EADG for my solos, just cause you rarely hear it anymore.

Take out Che Guevara before his popularity. I'm sick of seeing those T-shirts everywhere.

If you really dislike shred, use it on Eddie Van Halen or Yngwie.

You'd have to kill Richie Blackmore or Hendrix I guess so this idea is completely out of the question.

good point.

Yeah, I'd go with Van Halen on that one. Eruption probably inspired a lot of it.

Half the kids wearing it probably dont know who he was or what he stood for. I see it here too.

Because playing fast obviously means you aren't putting any emotion into your playing

But playing slow, making faces and bending alot means your soul is literally touching those around you.

yeah he was a patsie but he used the time machine to go forward then back so he could kill JFK so its ok that i blamed him for ww2.



He always seemed like a pasty coward to me.

Shredding can be awesome. Theres nothing wrong with throwing some
into a solo.

I just hate it when a player just takes the appropriate scale or mode
and just cranks away at it for damn near a minute ...not one phrase..
not a second of compositional direction. Just uzi it out. Then act like
they've done something.

I believe you can have expert/ninja coordination...yet still be a noob as far
being a musician.

It's even more emotional if you refuse to learn music theory!

Shoot Adolf Hitler when he was a teenager.

Playing an instrument fast isn't nearly as bad as killing millions of people...

who cares if you have a bullet you have no gun

I think it's a given that the gun is included. What are you gonna do? Throw the bullet at someone?

Music theory makes you a cold, hard machine unable to play below 23 nps.

I listen to Led Zeppelin, who are the best band ever, so my opinion is right.

I have a question. Why do you think killing a famous guitarist would do anything? Look at Dimebag Darrell. He's quite possibly more famous postmortem than he was when he was alive.
