Yeah, I would be the first to say Hendrix didn't have the cleanest technique compared to the usual shred guitarist who spends most of his/her time practising, but he did have his own techniques nailed down hard enough to be able to express himself perfectly.
I think this is going too far out of context, though. The title of the thread is "The Extreme Guitarshop Sweep Picking Lick". Let's just take it for what it is! I gave credit because the sweeps he's doing are very clean and rapid. That is very hard to do, and he did it flawlessly. I don't think the aim was to make anyone weep! I know what Bosch is into, he's a big Shawn Lane fan, and as someone who understands how Lane combined both blinding technique and
pure emotion, I wouldn't doubt that he understands "feeling" or "emotion" when he hears it. Saying this video lacks emotion of is "sterile" would be taking it completely out of context.
you are wrong to assume that bad technique equals zero emotion
I'm not wrong! You need to have your own techniques down well enough to be able to express yourself, but what is "bad technique" anyway, come to think of it? If your technique is good enough to get the message across, it shouldn't be considered bad technique. We are all individuals. Music = art = expression. If we are to generalize, though, you do need the basics nailed. Otherwise, people will just laugh at you! Hehe. What I'm saying is, if you only know ten words, you can't say very much to anyone. You need to know enough words to be able to communicate with others, because after all, music is a language.
