The Shred Thread
I'm a sucker for a good guitar solo. I mean, come on, who isn't?

So as I'm chillin' with the Floyd this fine late night (whilst wondering which one's Pink?), I came upon the shocking, yet not really all that important, realization that probably 2 of my favorite all-time guitar solos are from David Gilmore, yet I really have never considered David Gilmore in the top echelon of Masters of the Axe. In fact, I've hardly ever considered David Gilmore much at all, and this must be rectified.

So let this be the thread that shreds, or moves with a sloooooow hand. Post your favorite guitar solo and let us appease the Rock Gods with the wails of the whammy bar!









Can I get a Gawd Daaaamn!?!

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

I don't have time to do a video search right now, but I wanted you to know that I'll get on it, this idea is superb for all the guitar lovers out there.

Excellente! I was hoping someone would have a favorite Spanish/Classical guitarist. You reminded me of my favorite Flamenco guitarist, Vicente Amigo. Muy fabuloso! Aye Caramba!

RE: The Shred Thread
Ok, I've got metal crankin' and it's time to get back to thread that shreds.

The true inspiration for this thread has to go back in time to my 7th grade year when I discovered my first Rock God. And my life was forever changed:




Oh, this is a fun one. Eddie and Slash, side by side. (Not in actually playing together, just videos). If you can stand the cheesy editing, it's pretty cool.

Who do you think is the bedder shredder?





If I could keep it to only 2 categories, I'd declare a tie.

Eddie is technically better and faster that Slash; maintaining that technical ability at faster and faster speeds.

Slash is better at playing with feeling. It's that just at the tip of your tongue, not quite able to describe what that quality is...you just know it's being played with great depth of emotion in the notes.

What say you, Axe Lovers? How else shall we judge them and declare a winner?

RE: The Shred Thread
Watched Steve Vai shred it live for 2 straight hours back in the day.

I liked the comment "Not even all the porn in the world has more fingering than this performance!"





And Steve Vai was just the lead-in at that show to 2 more hours of Joe Satriani. ... Good times.

I liked the comment "My...my ears...I've never felt so...ear fucked in my life 0_o"





Well, since you already gone and got me shredded ... here's another




As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: The Shred Thread
Nice, GM, now we're getting to some true shredders. I was thinking of Satriani earlier today when someone mentioned the Silver Surfer. And Steve Vai. Wow.
Oh My Gee!
How could I forget my first Metal God's. I loved their brand of evangelism. At half time they through Bibles into the crowd. Some kid in the row ahead of me got hit in the head. It was awesome.
And most importantly...they SHRED!

If by crazy shit you mean totally awesome, then I must concur.
