2.what are the scales he usally uses.I hear chromatics and some long streches

3.What sort of chords did he favour.I hear eric johnson type things(more more after some good examples and Ideas

well the chords and modes are all connected to the "fucken crazy" scale. and the tone, well as far as amp adjustments, you would have to summon lane's soul by using an ancinet abadiggydough tibal leader and transplant it into yyour amp.

you should be good with that information.

The fact that flamethrowers exist is enough to prove that somewhere, sometime, someone said to themselves "you know, I wanna set those people over there on fire, but im just not close enough to get the job done".

I got me a Boss recordin unit with built in effects stuff- a patch called 'Sweet Lead' sounds just like Lane! Came across it while recording a slow kinda song, was gonna resist shredding but soon as I heard that I had to put a Shawn Lane esque freak out in it!!! If you can, get Guthrie Govan's analysis of Lane from UK publication Guitar Techniques- a great way to start examining Shawn's style.

It's is a sort of EJ tribute, I guess... I have a live version of Lane playing Time and he using a big run from Cliffs... it's pretty cool...
Lane was a big fan of pentatonic scale and using it in conjunction with wide interval stretches... Amazing stretches for litttle hands...


And play that as 16th notes at about 180-200bpm... :twisted: Scary...
