AHAHAH Michael Angelo Batio

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56uQoC8J2L4

That video is hilarious My friend sent it to me because Batio is coming to my local guitar shop on the 28th and my friend is bringing me along. I hope I don't start laughing while Batio tries to be serious
does anyone here like him? I haven't really listened to his stuff because his double guitar thing seems like too much of a gimmick, idk hah

Oh, good ole MAB. If there's a better example of pointless shred, I don't know it. The sad thing is his songs do some times have awesome melodic themes (middle part of Speed Kills, etc) but the rest of it just happens to be the fastest playing humanly possible without sounding like a computer error message on repeat.

Re: AHAHAH Michael Angelo Batio

am i the only person on earth that thinks that MAB's technique is terrible? every time i hear/see him play super fast stuff, he's picking at least 2x as many notes as he's fingering. i mean, i know that lots of people dislike the guy's music and lots of people love it, but it usually seems that even the people that hate his playing applaud his ability to play that way.

Red face Re: AHAHAH Michael Angelo Batio

My thought is he is very akin to Yngwie in that he is very fast, full of crappy psycho babble, an out of his mind whacko, in love with himself, a terrible songwriter, but goddamn if he doesn't just pull it off.

His over the fretboard is really very good...I am not a fan but have heard enough to put my 2 cents in

Re: AHAHAH Michael Angelo Batio

I've met him on more than one occasion, I don't think he's in love with himself.
He's always been pretty down to earth and easy going.
I have a couple of his albums, but they don't get heavy rotation in the 'ole iPod... He actually is a pretty amazing player, but I can definitely see the other side of the coin on this. It's fun to watch though.

Yes, you are the only one. You are completely deaf as well. Though his music doesn't appeal to everyone, he's definitely a master at what he does. He has, as Troy Grady said one of the most mechanically efficient alternate picking techniques ever. He is among the most accurate shredders ever.

Re: AHAHAH Michael Angelo Batio

I saw MAB live last year and he's amazing, but that shred is too 'old school'!
I'd love to see MAB grow up a litle, playing some Greg Howe or Allan Woldsworth tunes using the 4 neck DEAN guitar.
No shred, just fusion jazzy confusion...
