The Stupidly Awesome Unknown Guitar Player Thread!

This has probably be done before but post links with title in this thread of some Youtube Guitar Heroes.

First one that comes to mind is this guy, most of you will have already marvelled at his unique style!

Re: The Stupidly Awesome Unknown Guitar Player Thread!

I wanted to share the amazinglingtoness of Andy McKee with jemsite. BUT... i first searched before posting..... bwhahahahahha. Only now... I'll get slammed for reviving a dead thread. bwahahahah. Alas.... the woes of a forum so old, so rich... with information and expert experience that every question has been asked and search words must be chosen with cunning precision. Fret lightly new Jemsiter, lest you be scorned by the fire of 1000 blazes (the pickup, of course).

Anyway, here's a new VEVO channel for Andy McKee, with great new recording of his songs.

LISTEN!

Cool way to play the guitar, but seems to just keep playing the same riff over and over,
got bored after awhile.

A song is just that though isn't it? While I agree there has to be some changes to keep ones interest (something I am guilty of not doing in my writing), most songs are just that. Riffs that repeat, a feel that continues throughout.

Now if his next song had the same riff, I could understand getting bored but just the sheer virtuosity of it is enough to keep me interested.

I do understand what your saying though, I have a hard time with the amazing sweep picker guys, the songs get dull and unlistenable when all the music is is sweeps that dont really say anything but this guy IS saying something. It's only 3:19 long, even my ADD isn't that bad.

Re: The Stupidly Awesome Unknown Guitar Player Thread!

The song "Drifting", the riff changes and evolves about every 20 seconds. He reverts to the beginning riff at 1:00. Not very repeitive imo. If you just listen to it, it's a beautiful piece regardless of the playing technique.

I agree with Satchmo, ritalin anyone?
