The Wizard of Shred and all of those clowns......

Ok, I just saw a topic about the CAGED system and how someone called Tom Hess totally trashed it. There are all kinds of these "wonderful" online guitar teachers who promise to turn people into virtuoso players in a matter of months. As soon as a player hears someone play that Yngwie/Neo Classical style of playing they think that is virtuoso playing.

It takes years and serious practice to become a good player. If it was that easy to become a virtuoso, every player would be a great as Allan Holdworth, John McLaughlin and Shawn Lane.

Thanks for the ref. to Shawn Lane, I never have heard of him, but it seems he is one of that mindful family.

Wizard of shred doesn't suck at playing guitar, neither does Tom Hess. Just totally different approaches to how they execute. Next thing you know, y'all are gonna start trashing Frank Gambale and Will Leavitt... lol Not very Christmasy, guys!

Players like Allan and Shawn (And so many others...) have something that transcend mere technical ability.

Less trash talk and maybe more time practicing, perhaps...?

You mean like pentatonic scales in odd-note groupings of 5's and 6's? And diminished patterns?

'Cause that's what's on the DVD's. Nothing too out of the ordinary, just extremely fast.
