It says his name is Steve Price and let me be the first to say that was really hard to watch/listen to.

Thats what i was thinking while watching it. Ive never liked solos like this, i dont feel anything emotion wise. I like the slower more meaningful ones.

You do realise that this is the 'wank' section of an 80s concert? If you didn't have this you weren't a proper band. Judging him by that clip is like judging Paul Gilbert by this vid alone. Sure, that PG vid is more structured but I'd assume because that solo is pre written and is the same for each show. whereas the vid in the OP is (I assume) completely improv'd.

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

but pg still has great improvised wank. this guy's wanking comes off as boring compared to other wankers.

PG hardly ever improvises. That video's wank is prewritten and doesn't change over a tour and even on different tours it stays pretty similar.

Those are jams. I'd assume that those are improv'd to an extent. he'll have a vague structure in his head and then he'll pick and choose licks to fit but with a backing track, you have something to use as a guideline. Playing on your own, no other instruments is different.

My point was that this section of the show isn't meant to be melodic. it's meant to be as wanky and as fast as possible. It's the point where the guitarist is MEANT to show off and go stupid. Before you judge someone, listen to their proper songs first to get a proper opinion of their creativity and playing.

WOW a whole new debate.Anyway,can we all just agree that steve price is a GOD and owns paul gilbert?

NO i don't think we can because, let's face it, he doesn't.

actually, nah I can't say that with any accuracy because I haven't heard anything by Steve Price/his band and If I did say that, I'd be a hypocrite.

My goodness, that was horrible. I'd rather never learn to shred at all than play like him. Gilbert's wankfest was far more creative, in tune (none of those random, unsuitable chromatics), and had a structure to it.

That band is Krokus, right? Beavis and Butt-Head reckoned they suck.
