Constructive criticism is allowed, I know I'm not the best, and this is only a simple riffing video, but I want to know what you guys think. Immature flames will just be deleted, and laughed at. Once again, I know I'm not the best, but I'd appreciate your thoughts and how I can get better, improve, etc.

Thanks. Feel free to comment. I'll put up a poll later maybe.

usually I really, really, REALLY hate these videos, but I can't dislike anyone that opens with Tenacious D.

EDIT: watched the whole thing. recognized some dream theater and A7X (or however its written, I'm not the biggest fan of them anyways)

good riffin' man!

I think his tone was terrible, the fanboys annoy me, Dean cash in on his death, he's extremely overrated, his playing bores me.

For example, I saw a video the other day titled "Dimebag vs Buckethead" and everyone was like 'OMG Dim3 r better cuz Bucketh3ad hav no emotionz!! RIP DIME LOL!!1!!1".

What the fuck? Buckethead is blatantly better.

Whoever said the Metal first was right. here's the e-cookie*throws it*

whatev hatton. i personally loved him, but everyone to himself or herself.

Here's some hints:

2nd song: Dream Theater
3rd song: Dream Theater
4th song: Metallica
5th song: Metallica
6th song: A7X
7th song: Anthrax

EDIT: though yes hatton, dime fanboys annoy me, but i'll still love him. he's one of my idols.

Constant motion by Dream theater.


Nice video man, takes a lot to stick a video on youtube. Too many jealous types floating around.

And just so you know guys, I'm a LOT better than just a riff player(not to sound arrogant, lol), so writing "learn2playsomesolosnub" is gonna have no effect on me.

I just wanted to do something simple.

wait, what? how does that effect the guitar player exactly? dime didn't ask for some guitar company to exploit him after his death. its not his fault some of his fans are...a bit much at times. but I can see how these things would make him look overrated. Personally, I prefer his guitar work to that of zakk wylde or kirk hammet, but thats just me

and how is buckethead "blatantly" better? its all just opinion man.

buckethead is a fantastic no doubt. but every guitarist has his own playing style.

Like it or not "Dimefag" was one of the biggest influences in heavy metal. It's one thing to actually dislike him, but you have to respect what he did for the metal community.

I thought there'd be more "UG FTW" comments! Don't be shy! =)

Constructive criticism: learning random riffs won't impress guitarfolk 1/10th as much as learning a full song. Difficulty of riffs does not matter. The idea of posting a youtube video with random riffs just doesn't make sense to me.

Not bad, but a bit sloppy on a lot of those, your overall technique is a bit slow and sloppy, use your finger tips more and no the fleshy sides.

Alright, thanks guys. You can post these comments in the YouTube vid.

And yes, I am a little sloppy, I tend to rush a little. I own a metronome, but almost never use it. I'll probably start soon.

And as for the "randomness" criticism, I know it IS very random, but I ust wanted to play some of my favorite riffs. Whole songs are better yes, but it's just a small medley.

And I'm guessing I should go to the "Electric Guitar" forum, right?

Your technique with your fretting hand needs to be worked on. It looked like you were playing really forcefully through that and your pinky and middle finger tending to stray away from the fretboard a lot.

Other than that pretty cool.

Sorry, but it took me 2 seconds to realize that the distortion you used was too horrible to listen to.

i dunno, i guess just as you get more expierence you, get better, im living proof of that, i was decent b4 the summer, spent all summer playing guitar, i was a riffer, couldn't solo much, aftger that summer, and a week @ berklee (strudying under JOE STUMP btw) i leveled up like 30 times and evolved into a riff maachine and a shredder, i would show you, but i lack a computer camera thingy but, my band should have a song up soon, ill pm u the adress when its up.

the best thing you can do is just imporvise and make up your own rifffs, that will definatly help you, and learn really challenging song, necrophagist, nile, etc. you don't have to like them, but whatg they will do for your technicality and speed is unrivaled, bar studying under Stump or Yngwie etc.
