These Japan shred guitarists are getting overrated and I'm getting sick of them.I don't see really anything so amazing about them and they always have the sound... with nothing out of the box or ground breaking with their technique.
#3
Mad skillz, but melodicly lacking anything warranting a song.

Dont get me wrong I'de love to be able to play like that, but I'de put it to better use.

Not good at all. Anyone can play fast with practice. He probably couldn't write a piece of music if his life depended on it.
#5
i like the way his shredding was melodic

P.S japanese shredders pwn Go Syu and Takayoshi = ]
#6
Wait, so anyone who plays fast automatically lacks composition skills?
I don't need a sig....
#7
it definitely was fast, but it was way too repetitive. he just did the same thing over and over again until it wasn't cool anymore.
#9
^dont get me wrong, this guy is definitely a beast, but he has to do something different than just the same thing over and over again

Not what I meant. How many other guitarists do this, its not that special and we would have heard of him if he had any sort of song writing skills because he would have a record deal.
#12
Don't get me wrong, but that was honestly quite boring. It's better than I can do, but that wasn't a song, and it was very repetitive.

see guys! he's playing on an ibanez amp and his amp doesn't sound bad!


They still suck so don't even try to say they make good amps.

Booooriiiiiiing.

Shredding is overrated.

If you teach a monkey to peel bananas faster, he's still just a monkey.

He's nothing special, he plays guitar like the rest of us.
No offense, but (see above).

Technically well versed

Very clean and precise too but it lacks. This is where Id plug in Yngwie's name because hes an ideal example of this. He can blaze but he knows when to lay on a note and where to bend and apply a soulful vibrato. That is whats lacking in the video. The speed and accuracy is quite impressive but any inspirational impact is void here.
#17
there's some good japanese guitarists out ther man...just not this guy...if u want a real guitarist check out syu from galneryus...THAT is a proper guitarist

Dude what's wrong with you? If you teach a human to cure cancer, he'll still be human. And shut up about dissing people with gears you don't like. Skill is what matters.

Playing Shred=Curing Cancer?

All I'm saying is that just because he can play guitar with speed, doesn't mean he isn't just like all the other shred-heads out there.

That's all I'm saying.

And about the B.C. Rich comment, I will admit that was rather a low blow.

I apologize.
No offense, but (see above).

Maybe if he layed off the speed for some melodic lines it would be better.

You shouldn't be so judgmental, maybe he is a great composer.
#29
It would have been much better is there were slower parts as well. Undoubtedly, he is a good shredder, but I'm sure he could mix in some slower and medium speed playing to make the song more interesting.

Yeah that would make it a little more memorable

Lay on some notes, get some nice aggressive bends and vibratos in there
#31
I agree with everybody's copmments on how he needed to mix up some tempos to allow for some more melodic points, although he did throw in the odd melodic bone. Repetitious, nothing much new, but I sure wish I could play that fast.

They all sound the same to me and their shredding is boring/tasteless.


I like European and American shredders becuase they all bring something to the table unlike those Asian shredders (From Asia, not Asians in general)

You suck. Feeling isn't objective in any way; it's purely subjective so just keep quiet ok?

I didn't exactly like it but he's got chops I'll give him that. In terms of asian shredders I'll take Takayoshi Ohmura and Haruhisa Duran Naito over him any day.

I agree. Those guys just depend on blazing fast lines to try and wow people, and while I am a huge shred fan, people need to learn how to slow down sometimes.


If anyone hasn't checked him out, you need to look up riffguy on youtube, his videos are awesome.

Ugh... I'll waste my time again with another of the poor daft ones.
He has no feeling? You mean... YOU have no feeling for the music he's playing. Perhaps what he is playing is the projection of the highest emotion he could ever possibly feel? Just because what he's playing doesn't portray your "feelings"... doesn't mean it doesn't portray his; or other people's.

Idiot.
