The only "shredder" I can listen to, because he can add tons of feel to his game, and not just play 2 billions note per minute http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif and he's cool as hell too !!

However, for rock music, Jeff Beck wins for me. His style is so lyrical. His musical sense is outstanding.

+1 for Gilmour. Never really liked the fret-w@nking antics of the 'virtuoso' players.

you guys have to remember G3 is a show intended majorly for guitar geeks (such as myself), who have a special appreciation of the fret wankage. It takes enormous hours of training and work to get to a technical proficiency level such as the one those guys possess.

So obviously, in G3 they're gonna show their wanking off, but that doesn't mean they lack feeling or emotion in their playing.

Just don't look for that in G3.

If you wanna see VERY tasteful playing by Mr. Petrucci, then check this out:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5VwPfyEq3w
(please watch it all, it truly is incredible, and he does very little shredding there). Notice how he covers a range of styles and techniques in that solo and blends them in so masterfully

On to Mr Vai, my favorite version of his favorite song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Lb9h0J_ajA
Granted he does a little bit of shredding there, I still think it adds to the emotion he wants to portray in the song.


And Mr Satriani, my fav of him,(and go figure, this is from one of his G3 shows)

I watched that and I have to agree with one of the folks who posted a comment on it: "First part is absolutely perfect, really strong emotional playing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

When he starts to use the machine-gun...he loses me, his playing becomes robotic, and senseless compared to the beginning...

Too Bad, because the first part is so daaaamn good !"

I loved how he worked in Within You Without You near the beginning. But, he did finally descend into shredding and, while technically interesting, it just isn't musically interesting.

Watched the Smoke on the Water one, loved it. Extrememly cool. Richie Blackmore would be flattered, is he still alive?
Well,Steve Vai does unbeleivable stuff, I'll go watch the other vids.

When a teenager I loved this technical, fast guitar playing but now it doesn't impress me anymore. I gradually begin to think that the true guitar masters are those which manage to convey a lot of feeling by simple means. Perhaps the best example was already given above, David Gilmour. Hehe, it's simple in the sense that he plays few notes per second (or per minute http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif), but try to add something to it and you'll destroy the spirit of the song easily. Same with some solos of Blackmore, he's so powerful when he's simple. Same with Clapton, his "slowhand" nickname I could replace by "cleanhand".

Interesting footage...

I've seen Deep Purple play a couple of times (years ago) and that was better then the second show I saw them play. (weird)

I've seen Steve Vai play a few times , the first time with Frank Zappa (who is one of my all time favorite guitar players) the second with the David Lee Roth Band (THE BEST WANK FEST I HAVE EVER SEEN), and the third time solo. Vai is probably one of my favorite wank fest guitar players...
I've also seen Malmsteen, I used to really like his first 2 records (yes I had the vinyl), and he was good live...but (for me) he always lacked something (maybe he shouldn't have sold his soul...his music really needs it) FOR ME Randy Rhoads (I don't remember the show, but I was their) is my fav "classic/music METAL guitar player NEXT to Toni Iommi WHO invented the genre.

Motorhead was playing with Ozzy Osbourne the time I saw Randy, and as much as I enjoyed Ozzy I was actually their to see Motorhead. I was a BIG Motorhead fan in those days... Lemmy RULES!

Al Di meola was an incredibly impressive guitar player live as was Santana, and John McLaughlin.

Strangely enough I have had a lot of fun watching Angus Young,Stevie Ray Von, and Pete Townsend (Not all together)play but I wouldn't call any of them "gee-wiz-******s" guitar players...


ANYWAY thanks for the video clip http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

if you think Yngwie is impressive , find something of him playing acoustic

concert guitarists make a mockery of his live ability . there are so many good guitarists out there , & many of them dont play electric at all

for a mind blowing "is that even possible ?" - listen to xufei yang play pagannis caprice # 24 - even tho its a studio recording

Perhaps the best example was already given above, David Gilmour. the ability to play technical peices of music , & the ability to write moving peices of music are two different things

the latter is what David Gilmour (& pink floyd in genearal) is really great at
