Post Why aren't these dudes quadruple plat ?
Ignacio Torres

Brian Aspey

Rick Astley

These motherfuckers play the tastiest, most dynamic shred ever.
They should all have released three solo albums each, and be made world reknown guitar gods.

Anyone else have other shred gems to share ?

All I know is I was really hoping for some vocals off the top of that Ignacio Torres tune.

Hmm.... the Ignacio Torres song is just the regular shred song to me. I mean, he plays great ofc and there's nothing wrong with regular shred songs, but to stand out of the crowd of youtube shredders, he needs to play something less cheesy.

Bryan Aspey's song cooler.

IMO

And yes, I think Bryan Aspey's been on this forum plenty of times.

Everytime I find one of his videos, I keep thinking he's got to release a rock oriented electric guitar instrumental.
It would kick so much ass.

How funny, I actually know Ignacio, he´s a great guitar player from Chile, who got "exposure" by qualifying to the finals of Guitar Idol last year.

He is a Gilbert MANIAC.

Question is : is there anyone in the guitar world you don't know ?

:lol:


Son, I advertised Nespresso by making Nazi references everywhere in my school this year and got top marks. True story. I actually redesigned the Nespresso logo to look like a backwards Swastika, and argued in asia it was called a Manji and was a synonym to life and harmony. That Manji thing is true, but when I showed it to a western audience, I knew what I was doing wasn't innocent.

I could sell you dog turds, and you'd be happy to mortgage your house to acquire them.

So advertising Rick Astley by only saying the truth ? Piece of cake. ;) .

Back to shredding, I discovered the band Danger Danger, and the shredder Robert Marcello, who played in that band on a record released in 2009. He isn't too bad, though I gotta say I haven't yet heard from him something incredibly addictive. All I've heard from Danger Danger's album with Robert Marcello is very 80's, which is a big surprise in 2009. Here are two examples :

That's What I'm Talking About - Revolve -Danger Danger - 2009
Hearts On The Highway - Revolve - Danger Danger - 2009

For information, the band's debut album, which was its most successful :

Naughty Naughty - Danger Danger - Danger Danger - 1989

Andy Timmons handles the shredding on that album.

OT: But I saw that reverse swastika on a Korean church near my house. Pretty awesome marketing idea :D

You've asked for it, behold, the new Nespresso logo based on the Manji :

I was praised by the jury.
Man I laughed hard that day.

Oh and I showed it to the jury along with these images :

I couldn't let them not see the intentional references.
The second image is the " hand drawn " version of the Manji

Yeah, but I got praised.
That's because I'm from this country that was so friendly to the beloved Führer back during the olympics in 1936.

Watch France come in at 2:18

France didn't have to give Hitler the salute. Even though in 1936 the world didn't know exactly how hard the shit was going to hit the fan, I still don't think it was a wise move. The U.S.A, and Great Britain got it right, they just marched, and didn't raise their hands.

There is a surplus of "shredders" these days. Most of them "speak" a lot of things, but none of those spoken sentences are intellectual or interesting at all. No one does Paul Gilbert like Paul Gilbert. No one does Yngwie like Yngwie. A bunch of these dudes are just re-hashing the same material that everyone's heard already. It's just not interesting anymore and gets redundant, especially when you're competing with younger guys like Andy Wood who is versatile as fuck, and can shred like mad, or guys like Martin Miller and Tom Quayle... Charles Altura is a mad man of a guitar player and he's only 27 or something (check out some of his playing with Virgil Donati...holy shit)...Don't get me wrong though, I still love my metal. Hell, Jeff Loomis is one of the best shredders out there, but he definitely keeps things interesting.

Bryan can definitely hang with them, he is very good and melodic. He should definitely put out something...

hahaha

I guess I suck enough to consider myself a "shredder", and have no chance on being a jazz guy.

I might switch to drums :lol:
