There are countless other shredders out there that can do the same stuff and more. And that said, Guthrie still sweeps better than 90 percent of the guitar playing population.

That’s what makes him really good, imo. Do you think of Erotic Cakes as a progressive album? He shredd like a shredder, country like a nashville session guy, jazz like a seasoned jazz man. Please remember we are a civil community. He’s a special player. I’ve always thought that one of the signs of true mastery is when someone can make something difficult look like it should be easy.

Guthrie has commented on not liking the sound of sweep picking, says he finds it too percussive and jarring. Failing to follow this guideline will result in a thread removal. To me, the main thing that sets him apart from other shred monsters is his insane versatility.

So on and so forth. For example clapton is called mr slow hand, yet he can speed up when he wants to, and play extremely intricate phrases and licks, and doesnt just play super fast for the sake of it. He’s still the man though. Is there anything else llane would like to achieve in music?


What your hearing is very fast alternate picking and two hand legato most of the time. The two processes are certainly related, but I reckon technique becomes a lot more important in the context of improvisation.

In my experience, kids below 5 don’t have the attention or understanding you need to know some letters a be able to relate them to notes or basic one finger positions. I think it has less to do with technical ability than comfort.

I think there are a few virtuosos with his ability. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy. I’m pretty sure Guthrie can handle anything you throw at him. Until there’s a fourth, they’re the three to beat, I guess. I cannot miss him if Guthrie comes to Bovan again!

Excuse me sir but I’d like to know if you have a minute to talk about our lord and savior Paul Gilbert. He knows how to keep the money coming in where many other shredders failed or changed their game.


Just a link does not help the cause. I still think the best album he ever put out was Enter the Chicken.

And all the metal sub genres are just people rationalizing what they like, and applying that to the larger “metal” culture” so they fit in. His mastery of melody and technique is quite, quite rare. Which is funny because he covers that exactly in one of his videos when he tells people not to play fast just to be fast.

Guitar submitted 2 years ago by BavidDrent. Nobody can flat pick quite like Yngwie. Log in or sign up in seconds. I actually think the process is more complex than the question suggests. Grateful and pleasantly surprised! Shawn was the best, good to see him getting props. I can see him being like Jeff Beck when he is Contact mods if you have a complaint.

Will the Fellowship ever release an album? The rebound he made was a miracle. Why would this be downplaying ability? In an ideal world, I think the artist would have the sole right to determine which clips end up online: You can always find really fast players.
