Worst Petrucci EVER

Dude, this has to be the worst I have ever heard Petrucci play. Minimize your browser and I swear you'll think of a kid playing on a Crate at GC.

Re: Worst Petrucci EVER

I would guess that he's not playing through his normal amp. It's probably just a stock one they roll out for magazine interviews etc. If it is a clip for a magazine I wouldn't be too harsh on him. It could've been filmed at 9am after a big night. I wouldn't fancy being filmed in less than inspiring conditions with some journalist pointing a camera at me and demanding "right, be amazing we're filming this".

He's not my favourite player but it's not that bad.

I don't think it warranted a thread to be started about it. I agree with what Eggy said.

Re: Worst Petrucci EVER

Certainly didn't look like he was enjoying what he was doing.

I wish I were as good as these guys are on their worst possible days.

Re: Worst Petrucci EVER

Sounds like a fuzzy amp/recording more than the playing

Re: Worst Petrucci EVER

I have to say that it wasn't all that bad, considering, its not your average solo, and no backing music, etc... I thought it sounded pretty good.

Anyways I'm going to meet and greet with JP for the Australian DT tour, so Il be sure and mention this youtube post and tell him he is an awesome player........

Maybe a little clarification is needed..... are you talking about his chops or his tone? If it's tone, yep it's not his usual. Like Eggy said..... It may have been less than optimal surroundings and equipment.

Playing? The guy was noodling around...... what did you expect for 57 seconds? If it sounded like a typical Saturday morning at Guitar Center, well rest assured of the influence he's had on many a player then.

Or maybe you were just expecting John to perform Schumann's "lost" Violin Concerto on his guitar in a Youtube video?

Well I found a small clip of that very performance..... enjoy!

Does he ever?

And I wouldn't call that "noodling", that's the Under a Glass Moon solo.
