I've been really grooving to classical music lately (a lot of Bach). I was wondering if anyone had any good pieces in the classical repertoire that make for a fun shred fest? Doesn't have to be Bach. Could be anything that' fun to learn.

Thanks!

Anyone suggest any good violin pieces that would be fun to shred? I'm working on Paganini's 5th Caprice and Flight of the Bumblebee. I'm looking for things along those lines...

Not a fan of Canon in D, for some reason... But thanks for the suggestion.

And thanks for the Vivaldi suggestion. I'll have to work on that one.

Check out the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

They're a 7 (?) piece band that plays clasical pieces and standards in what i'd call an 80's power ballad/stadium rock tone.
Why you reading this?

Technically, Bach is baroque, but he has a few classical pieces.

Try Jason Becker's stuff, he has alot of neoclassical stuff, if you can play Speed Metal Symphony by Cacophony, I will kneel and call you GOD


Indeed, Bach and Vivaldi are baroque, Mozart is classical, Beethoven and Schubert fall under classical and romantic, Chopin, Liszt, Schumann, and Rachmaninoff are romantic... but i just generalize all of them under classical.

And I'll take a look at those threads. Thanks, guys.

Paganini indeed, his stuff transcribes very nicely to guitar. Liszt and Rachmaninov (two of my favorite composers) I was not aware about. Could you elaborate on some pieces that work well by all three? The only Paganini piece that I know works well with guitar is his Fifth Caprice...

Thanks in advance.
