In my opinion, you can play at lightning speeds impressing guitarists everywhere, but if you have no passion and no melody just blazing fast solos that the non-musician cant take in, theres really no point. Ygnwie was a phase for me, and thats what i learned from it. Yes it sounds fucking cool, but to someone who isnt at all musically inclined, its practicly too much to handle. In my playing, i balance it out. I'll play a lead when the time and the mood of the song is right.  Dimebag is a huge influence on my playing, because he balanced them perfectly.

Shred with emotion, thats all i have to say.

I thought this thread would have been deleted by now...  I'll bump it just for shits and giggles.

Oh shred. I used to adore it, now I mostly laugh at it. I only really use fast sections to transition from different ideas in my solos.

i found for a while i knew what i wanted to play but i couldnt translate it through my brain to actually play it. then a couple months ago i picked up john petruccis rock discipline book and i started using exercises from there as warm up techniques and i noticed quite a bit of improvement in a fairly short amount of time. i read in a magazine that matt heafy from trivium uses this and although trivium may not be some peoples brand of whiskey his playing has improved over the last couple albums.

i guess if you wanna take anything away from this its if you wanna play like your favourite players find out what they did and use some of that in your day to day practising

  I remember going through the phase of wanting to be like Randy Rhoads, Joe Satriani and Alex Skolnick; they were my idols.  Not to say that to this day I don't use those guys as a reference point anymore, I've tried very hard to discover my own voice on the guitar.  Let's face it, nobody is ever going to be better than those guys at what they do.  What they play is 100% their own creation.  They put together their own styles, which should be the goal of every guitarist.  I will admit that there are times when I find that I do sound like a certain bearded,  Les Paul wielding guitarist, I see nothing wrong with a 'tip of the hat'  Wear your influences on your sleeve, and hopefully we all can be at a point when our influences become a source of inspiration rather than a obsession.

I could not possibily agree with this MORE!   The REASON these guys and many others have become standouts is they have their own voice and style.  Alot of players try to emulate too much and just end up being clones.  It is very difficult to mould your own tone and technique, I know I've struggled with it for the 10 years I've been playing, but it's very important.

If you take Zakk as an example, I was listening to Pride and Glory (his old southern rock 3 piece) and my wife could tell it was him.  I'm a big Zakk fan but I think the lastest BLS stuff has become too formulaic, and he's relying more on shredding pentatonics for solos.  If you go back to P&G songs like machine gun man and horse called war, there is alot more feel and soul.  I think my favorite solo though is the one in no more tears, I love the build up and the bluesy bends. 

great topic btw
