I didn't say so :lol: Shredding while playing live is great, it really can attract females, but through recording they will say it's crap but if you play it live it will impress them

On a serious note, thats a pretty cool band, playing a pretty cool song. Enjoy.

I was making a joke. Way to take it seriously there, Olie.

Given, they guy isnt up to Paul Gilbert standards, but he's not shabby. Towards the end, he starts to burn it up.

Just busting your chops mate!!! no hatred intended, I just think that even as a remote joke, the kid in your video is a far far cry from shredding!

the guy in the vid is someone from this forum right? i dont mean to sound mean but instead of working on your speed picking and legato...work on song writing.

the playing was ok, but the song was awful, sorry for hurt feelings.

im at 2:34 now and my ears are hurting, is it worth me waiting til the end of the vid?
the only concession to "getting laid" in the clip is some girl running on stage right at the end (most likely it was pre-arranged, anyway).

i was expecting something fairly professional when the clip started. that all fell apart once he opened his mouth. and again once he started pulling shred faces.

Well I'm not into pure hardcore shred, so I like how he mixes classic rock riffs with a little speed here and there. If it works it works. Just like the three chord thing. I think some of the best songs are three chord songs. And does the audience realy care how many chords are in a song?

Girls get too excited and think that if a guy is playing in a vaguely 'famous' band, then that means they are special, and therefore worth having as a boyfriend/accessory! Soooo...shredding can get you a girl if you look cool enough, but not directly to the laid part, I suppose

Wow, you guys are harsh. He looks like a high school kid who for that age is doing pretty well. Come on, he's apparently writing his own songs and performing them, and really not doing a bad job at all.
