Wazzup UG? i don't mind a good shredding once in a while, in fact sometimes i'm impressed by watching guitarists on youtube really nail a fast song. what bothers me is when youtubers promote themselves as amazing when they mindless shred on their guitars. even when a guitarist may be talented, building themselves up as gods seems annoying to me. videos like these:

my question to you is, even when a guitarist is amazing (and i'm not saying the guy in the video is anything close to amazing, that is just an example) but they profess themselves as incredible at their art, could you still respect them?

I thought this was going to be about the song "The Art of Shredding" ...


...And if a guitarist says they're amazing, and they are, I still respect them as long as they aren't a twat about it thinking it makes them better than the next guitarist or something.

Wow that was brutal. I could easily play faster than him hitting random notes like that. Utter crap. If it doesn't sound even remotely decent, its not music, it's wank.

Him smoking IS the best part. And yeah I think he was wearing eye liner or something...



It looked liek more than that. I actually thought he might be a chick who had breast reduction surgery and just had a manly body lol.

I agree with this. Well, minus the first part. If a guitarist is good, he'll get respect unless he's a prick about it. It's like that with anything.
Stay humble my friends, stay humble.

oh please.....i still remember the days where i used to play like that

everyone has to start somewhere, i'm sure everyone here played like that in one point in their guitar lives. the kid with the cigarette...i dunno i guess he just loves his 80's rock.

Yes. They obviously worked very hard to get there. Obviously, I will respect more a humble one that worked as hard to be as good.
THIS is an amazing shredder, that also has a good heart, respects his father, and is very humble.

i really enjoyed watching that, not only because he has the talent but because he looks like he is genuinely having fun playing

You know, just for this I'm going to make a video of me shredding with a shirt that says "I'm better at this than you."

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Well I think he has great potential and he also has made alot of his own music which sound pretty good. His first videos are a bit annoying though.
