You can be as fast and technical as possible but if it's got no feeling to it it's terrible. Example tacky ass 80's hair metal.

If you can make your guitar sing, THEN you can sit down to master the fireworks.

Right, because any kid can learn how to make a guitar "sing" with a few months of practice. It take many, many years of hard work and dedication to learn how to do the fireworks, so it's natural that the "singing" would come first.

whodat ...

That's a great quote. You think of a song like "Jessica." Betts' solo begins with this really joyful, melodic phrase that just sweeps you right up. It's simple, yet completely effective.

And the guitar solos in "Hotel California" are just perfect examples of nicely dramatic solos that rely on melody, not flash. Ditto the solos in classics like "The Wind Cries Mary," "Sunshine of Your Love," etc.

"If you can make your guitar sing, THEN you can sit down to master the fireworks."

EXACTLY

I like the way Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule, Allman Brothers) said it in an interview I read once, "It's not about the notes you play, it's why you play them."

At 350 bpm sounds like a pissed off cat.

Velocity does not equal quality, as some ladies have pointed out to me...

@Jake Huh. I never knew it was Eric that did the solo, always assumed it was George. Cheers

Granted that this is a fake, it's always a thrill to hear authentic virtuoso players pushing the speed limit on their instrument, and guys like Steve Morse and Steve Vai do it with style. But the guitar solo that's really going to move you emotianlly is the tasteful, melodic one that has a vocal quality to it, that sounds like the instrument is singing -- Carlos Santana ("Black Magic Woman"), Leslie West ("Theme for an Imaginary Western"), Eric Clapton ("While My Guitar Gently Weeps"), Roy Buchanan ("The Messiah Will Come Again"), etc. If you can make your guitar sing, THEN you can sit down to master the fireworks.
