I'm not sure what I have heard, but I think it was something recent - think 2005-2010ish. Hybridpicked, and his "own scale". That's just about all I know. Still it could be sped up. Even Vai has done that, so it's accepted.Funny thing about Vinnie being "fast", is that he wasn"t at all. Several folks that worked with him have spilled the beans about Vinnie.......wait for it..................wait for it.....................sped up the tracks to appear faster than he really was--Gasp!
He's too busy bringing kiss to court every other day to get the practice in :mrgreen:ALL of his lighting-fast leads were sped up, ALL of them! It's accepted if you're doing it sparingly in context of the rest of the music, as in creating an abnormal emphasis--not EVERY stinking lead. He did it for the wrong reason--a technology based method of keeping up with the "real" 80s shredders.
