    Great. Go ahead. Make me feel like crap. I'm getting stomped by a 12-year-old.
    Where's my loser cap?....

    triplet arpeggios are still sweet in my book

    that had to be either a Malmsteen / Vai / Satriani instruction video he learned that from..... I'm gonna guess Satch

    I stopped playing like that LOOONG ago, it's a shame noone really appreciates talented guitarists anymore, hell most bands don't even include solos in their songs anymore
    I miss Rhandy Rhoads

    He's good, but can he write a good song? The 80's had some awesome solos, but also lots of fairly weak rythyms. I guess I just go tried of flashy long ago, many can practice and do it. Writing a good song, that takes more talent....or something lol.

    Good player, but lets see him do that on an acoustic guitar.

    It's amazing how quickly shred turns people off nowadays.
    I like it if it's textural and melodic, and fits the song. But here I'm just impressed that such a young dude could do it.

    I love the solos I'm hearing from the new Avenged 7fold stuff.

    don't get all upset, he's probably 17 or so
    I was shredding Malmsteen and Rhoads at 17

    but,.... as Bobo was quick to point out, it's just as important to play a solid rythm and to learn to write

    I used to be able to play anybody's crap by listening and playing along - it wasn't until I started to play my own stuff that I realized what kind of guitarist I really was

    My style ended up being a mix of Rhoads / Malmsteen / Dimebag with a quirky kind of Dio-esque melodic overtone
    I eventually decided that I would rather be a SOLID rhythm guy who could throw in some nifty little licks instead of a guy that could only play shredding solos

    but what this kid is doing sure does get the oohs and ahhs (and chicks) at parties .... but noone really wants to go see it live anymore

    example ..... I saw Dream Theater a couple of times live and it was one of the more boring shows I've seen

    my drummer likes them
    I think the lead guy can burn, but I hate there rhythms
    most of them sound to cheesy to me

    I'll stick with Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin
    I'm also latching onto Funeral for a Friend now - great band

    I've been a musician for many years and I've just never been able to get into shredding. I was even somewhat of a metal head back in the early 80s, but the shredders couldn't hold my attention. I always preferred stuff like Thin Lizzy. More soul and style imho.

    You've got to respect the dexterity, the speed, the amount of practice it takes to be able to do that, but for me, it loses its musicality (is that a word?). It's kind of like some bluegrass flatpicking. Phenomenal speed, but it gets old really quick.
