Much cleaner technique and interpretation IMO :)
Neither does mustang sally or margarittaville but I dont see anyone bitchign about those constantly.
blah, you dont really play WITH your teeth.
sloppy missed notes and a repetative song that lost my interest i nabout 5 seconds
and the worst part is people think this guy is sweet when he probobly can`t play a g chord for the drating life of him
my suggestion...remove all gutiars from the entire continent of asia so they won`t completely ruin music for the rest of the world
didn`t think so.
and i think this sounds more impressive than it is because of the electric guitar.do this on acoustics and it isn`t good.but i don`t play guitar so don`t take me seriously...
Wow, that`s pretty steryotypical. >>;I think he`s good and his mom should be proud. :P
Oh and Enohead, lord or lady of "I usually say silly stuff" , why do you say that we can`t say that Britney Spears is crap until we are as good/better than her? So does the same principle apply to reverse things? Say...Hitler? No, we can`t say Hitler is bad until we are as bad as him. The same example goes for all the high Nazis that survived the war. They were TRIED FOR WAR CRIMES. Yeah, we TOLD THEM THEY WERE MEAN BASTARDS and WE LOPPED THEIR HEADS OFF.
What bugs me is that someone trys to show its skills and get a slew of really bad critics. Me as a musician have experienced this phenomenom which I call:
The "If your face doesn`t appear in MTV you suck no matter how proficient and skilled you`re" phenomenon.
Notice who I used the word "FACE". So yeah you got it, music sounds good to people no matter if it`s crap as long you have an image. Yeah forget all those countless hours studying music and an Instrument, just bang a couple of power chords use a vocoder and make sure you look pretty; and you`ll have a future in the music business.
Overall the guy is good, repeat. Good. Not amazing.for Amazing guitarist look up for Al Di Meola, Paco de Lucia, John Pettruci and Jimi Hendrix.
wait one minute!! i thought shred had something to do with skateboarding or snowboarding.. i definatly need to catch up with my teenage lingo *turns channel to MTV*
Stop saying its fake when its not you ignorant pricks.
He`s good, but not soulful.I`m not into shredders.
I like guitar from the heart.As a guitarist myself,I could tell you that it`s real.And it`s REALLY hard to play that fast...
Now, if he only had some soul...He would be brilliant...
Shredding is all about pull offs and hammer ons (tapping strings with fingers).
Anyway, the quality is bad enough, but if you check out his other videos it`s pretty much hard for him to completely fake it. Plus, IF you really look at it the exact placement of the fingers each time the same riff appears. He`s relaxed in different ways, and his shifting is quite good. So look again before you judge too quick
And btw, people who don`t play guitar are allowed to criticised, but don`t talk like you know it so well that you can say how bad the person is without analysing why he`s bad. "I`ve seen better" isn`t a good enough excuse.
Anyway, he arranges his own music which is to me a rather good thing, despite the fact that I disagree with his style since I`m half-classically-trained.
Stop quoting "big names" without understanding each field well too. I don`t mean to be a harsh person, but please, it`ll be nice to know what you`re talking about before you say it. Saves a lot of argument on here. Though it does make it more
Anyway he`s a pretty good player considering his sweeping skills are pretty alright(it`s not faked). He`s too relaxed to be faked, to do at slow speed, singly picking each note and speeding up would make it ultimately super unnatural. I agree with some people that HendRix is not so "insanely out there" but credit is given to him because he pioneered the music of our current time. I would listen to Smagboy on that one, being that it`s a likely reason why it`s so, for there are actually many ways we can add background music into it.
Tough I have to say musically I don`t quite like this guy being that he`s not very tasteful, but the fact that he`s using a pretty crappish guitar it`s not bad, and the fact that he uses so much distortion. Might not be to many`s taste, but he`s of considerably good skill... Please give him som
I do play guitar, and have for years, and this guy`s alright so long as you consider what he`s doing and from where`s he`s doing it. I guess it just depends on if you care for this type of music or not (I don`t, and couldn`t finish the video). If you do, and want to see it played right, go here and click the 2:30 video block (of the 6 on the right, it`s the middle, right hand one). Now, I`m not Vai, not even close, but I provide this link for comparison... :-)
or Canon Rock for short
It ain`t fake! I`ve seen 2 people play live, a kid and his teacher and yeah, maybe it does look fake but it ain`t!
(sorry for the kinda double post)
Oh and to whoever said it reminded them of Sonic it`s probaly cuz this is the way Jap`s play guitar and most of Sonics recent theme songs et cetera are by Japs.
Also, asains don`t have souls.
The point`s been made earlier, but there ARE people better than this guy who have sold millions of albums for it. Get some of them on here.
i can do it to, get a sense of humour people
My dad got my brother; Dustin a guitar and told him he could get lessons once we moved. He was okay with that for a while, but now he says he doesn`t need lessons. He sits on the floor, puts his finger in his mouth, and strums it. Loudly I might add. It sounds like crap and I know it.
He swears up and down he doesn`t need lessons, so Imma show him this video and laugh at his dumbfounded expression.
Also, can every body stop bitching?
pro gamersDDR freaks!robot engineers
the list goes on
therefore, asians dont count as humans they are some kind of aliens that have come to give us technology and save man kind as we know it....
and build me a HOT robot that does everything a real women does but without all the hassle!
This kids freaking amazing at what he does, and he`s better than most of you EVER will be.
Even if you wanna flame him, go get better than him and then try to..
Oh and to those people who wonder why they ehar drums... Well... There is a wonderful program called "Band in a Box". It plays various tracks of drums, or bass, or guitars and so on. And it gives you the feeling that you aren`t playing alone. Face it... It`s more fun to play a guitar when you hear the beat of the drums.
And for those who think the music doesn`t come out from the guitar... Well... It doesn`t... The sound of the guitar (electric) is usually heard through an amp. Also it might seem that what you see in teh video doesn`t match the sound very much. It`s because of teh poor quality of the video.
Sorry for my poor English. I`m only 14 and from a country where English is a foreign language.
Umm have you ever seen Steve Vai play? look up the song Eugenes trick bag and tell me there is no feeling. And the kid is damn good listen to his other stuff he is pretty good for being 20 something...
Amen, brother.[/quote]I`ll second that
Oh and to spazmoto, wth does being Asian have to do with anything?
He is really great though would love to get some pointers from him!
1. He`s not a kid, he`s asian. 2. It`s not fake, he`s asian.
Forget playing with his teeth - when he can play with SOUL like Hendrix, I`ll be impressed.
And by the way, I believe thats an Encore guitar. Those things CANNOT play. Even Joe Satriani couldn`t get a sweep-picking riff going with an Encore, the action on them is way too high, the strings are about a centimetre off the fretboard. I played my friends once and everything about it was nasty.So if he`s using an Encore, it`s definately fake, you can`t get that kind of sound out of those poor excuses for instruments.
However, I would be REALLY impressed if he could play slow and emotive
His technique seems pretty clumsy too.
AWESOME! i think its real, but it looked a little fake because either the video or the sound is a little slower or faster than the other... OR ((smartass answer) light travels faster than sound, LOL)
No, it isn`t fake either. ^^^
