Amazing. I've never seen or heard anything like that before. How special. (rolls eyes)

Not the best tune.


Hmm, Such a nice guitar, As I see that it's an electric guitar so is that true that the maintenance are really high comparable to the acoustic guitars.

You makes me laugh John.

Some people have a problem with the concept that sometimes "less is more."

You quoted Dave and his post was really an answer to two different subjects . First...

 

"...an electric guitar so is it true that the maintenance are really high comparable to the acoustic guitars."

 

He said "Not really." and I agree. Acoustic guitars (I/m/o) require as much maintenance if not more in order to keep the action, intonation and playability at its optimum. On an electric guitar most of those adjustments can be made fairly easily with adjustments at the bridge/saddle and most electrics just have screws to raise/lower the action and adjust intonation. On an acoustic guitar most adjustments have to be made by removing the saddle, shaving or possibly replacing it, and/or making internal adjustments to the neck which requires truss-rod adjustment. Both usually require a higher degree of skill than a few turns of a screw-driver or allen-wrench. Of course on electrics there are the electronics. but they rarely fail and aside from maybe an occasional tightening of the jack-plug are maintenance free. This is just from my experience, but I'd rather have to properly re-set up an electric anytime than an acoustic.

 

His second part was in regards to the tune itself...

 

"Not the best tune."

 

While there probably isn't any such thing as a "best tune" and it's purely subjective to the guitarist, some people like to measure their guitar lead-work skills in n/p/s and others in how melodic it sounds. Pickyfan seems to be of the former while Rick, Dave and myself of the latter. Again, purely subjective.

I liked it too. I'm not against shredding as such. In fact I think it's a pretty cool thing to be able to do. However, I've made up my mind that speed is just something I'm never going to have when it comes to guitar player, so I've focused my interests on other aspects of playing.

I'm not necessarily against playing fast, at times even extremely fast. Like for example an extremely fast run leading into a few other notes or a chord-frag run that make up part of a... phrase (for lack of a better word), but when there's basically just a flurry of notes played as fast as possible just for their own sake of being played fast that really have no... melodic content, etc... just a flurry of notes hammered, tapped, pulled off and picked as fast as possible between the occasional longer-note (which generally actually is part of what would be a decent lead), I don't get it. A hundred ratta-tatta-tatta "filler notes" between two good ones.

 

I kind of think of it like if you can't sort of remember what that lead sounds like in your head from memory after listening to (and liking) the tune and its lead-work, there's probably too many notes in it. Think of all the classic lead-work runs and riffs across lots of musical genres over the years that you like and remember... How many of them have notes coming at you like they were being shot out of a machine gun?

if only to be a voice of dissent what you just said is nearly identical criticism of mozart's work i.e. a flurry of notes, scales played up and down too quickly, &c.

I've always been more of a Johann Sebastian kinda guy. He knows his way around a stringed instrument.

This is the sort of thing i like, I think the solo at 1.27 is one of the finest.

For me All Right Now by Free has one of the best solos ever. Certainly in my top 5 all time favorites. A solo has to make the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end, and this one still does :)

Yep. Probably one of the easiest solos I've ever learned, but it's definitely a "goosebumper"

Yeh, a solo needs to be relevant to the song, as opposed to an opportunity to show off. All right now is a good one. Here's another good one;
