    Just a quick Q to the Vai fans: can / does he play jazz? If so, please name a track or two. Cheers. ;)

    That one CD you own that you are embarrassed to tell your friends you listen to. Lets see a list! :)

    I can play rock, blues, shred, thrash. I've even composed some songs. But I have zero jazz knowledge. I've wanted to learn it since i've seen guys do improvisations on TV where guitar, drums, bass, piano do their solos one after the other. I think it would increase my skills many fold. It would...

    I'm looking for something rhythm oriented with a real groove to it, something quick and centered around a major key. Preferably something with a lot of room for experimentation and improvisation.

    I thought it be might be fun to see what non-guitar, non-"rock" music that people listen to on this forum. List artists, genres, albums to check out... This includes guilty pleasures too. :) Alright, let's get inside everyone's heads...and iPods...:cool:

    For about the last 15 years I have heard country music fans (I am not one) say that Vince Gill is an incredible guitar player. They claim he is capable of SHREDDING with the best of em', but he just choses not to because it's not his style. Some say he is the best in the world. His wife (Amy...

    Hey, I want to start listening/playing some jazz but I don't know where to start. Can anybody recommend some good CDs to listen to (doesn't have to be guitar based) and some materials to help me start to playing Jazz. The stuff in Guitar Techniques is to advanced for me to start with so kinda...

    Any advice or recommended artists? I think I will truly be a rock guitarist, thats why I need help to develop some jazz chops. My school jazz band has a competition soon, and I need some epiphanies in my playing. I always listened to EJ but I need some new guitarists. My band director says I...

This guy is really good though, i hope he comes over again so this time i'll know who he is and i can get an autograph...

    im listening to star wars disco by wierd al. just got tol the cantena bit. legend!!!

    Yeah the title sums it all. I'm not just meaning Yngwie (whom I have always disliked) but also Steve, Satch, Gilbert, Petrucci and others that I can't think of right now. I find that I'm not that eager to listen all of those lightning fast solos and fancy techniques. Don't get me wrong this is...

    Today I dug out CAB by MacAlpine, Brunel, and Chambers and realized how much I like this type of music. However, I want something a bit smoother and more jazzier and not quite as shreddy. Can you make some recommendations?

    It must be my age! The older I get the less I appreciate "Stunt Guitar" playing, mega fast picking, tapping, sweeping BLAH BLAH BLAH! For example the latest Whitesnake "Live in the Still of the Night" offering has some great songs but the solos are just a blur of pointless technical chops...

    I found out something sad today, although it comes nearly eight years too late, so it's not news. I remember way back in 1992 or 93, I was a young metalhead guitarist..you know Yngwie this, Steve Vai that, playing Metallica covers in bands, you know the deal. I hated, hated jazz..I was young...

    Y'know that feeling when you pick up a guitar and feel useless? bored of the same ol' routine? If your name happens to be Yngwie you're probably thinking "No..." but if you aren't a prick, how do you get out of that way of thinking? Sometimes I just pickup the guitar and mess around with the...

    I was going through my buddy's CD collection and I realized 90-95% of his music was metal/prog/shred. He doesn't even own a Zeppelin album (is that legal?!?!). What do y'all listen to? Does anyone jam something totally weird that you wouldn't think a typical Jemsite reader would listen to...
