Nope, haven't heard it.

Fast notes and shredding don't really impress me any more. It's a lot harder to write a catchy melody from 4 or 5 notes than to just shred through a bunch of scales like a braindead robot.

Christoph out . . .

i heard malmsteen do it, he does a pretty good version, though i can't campare it to jason becker quite yet.
To improve technique and of course trying to keep all as clean as possible. I know my own limits and speed limits and so on I never play anything I'm not capable of. That wouldn't make any sense. After three years of playing I tried to play everything as fast as possible and that sounded, I would say, like shit, and I didn't realize that if I'd play bit slower things than I was capable of playing then everything would sound much better.

*Jaw Drop* ouch, that's pretty neat :) I wonder how long he practiced on that. I only know the first 50 notes of the caprice and I allready got tired of it :)

Have you ever jammed with a shredder? with a "less is more" kind of guitar player?

I've played with shredders and it's so boring. You always need to take a step back cause they always want to shred for countless hours.

On the other hand, I've played with guitarist that don't need to play fast. They play by feeling. These guys are the best. You can jam with them over a 4 chord progression and easely alternate solo/rythmn. Each note is used to mix perfectly with the rythmn not over-shadow it (don't know if that's a word). It's hard to explain.

If you've been there, you know the feeling.

I CAN'T PLAY THE BLUES
(taken from Ron thal's CD "Hermit" ©1997)

I play as fast as I can - I'm the Gingerbread Man
With a fast hand - won't ya kick me outta your band
I only play for me - I'm the king of Unity
I'm a team of one - a defective hired gun

I play like a ham, well that makes me Spam
And then I wonder why nobody ever wants to jam
Cause ya feel like a pawn in a volume war
And I'm the only one who bothers keeping score

Because I got no feel - I got no emotion
My riffs aren't real - I just go through the motions
I'm fulla tricks and trinkets that I always use
I aint got much choice - I can't play the blues

And just in case I'm in a finger race
I keep it up and I keep pretending that I win the chase
But if ya play faster than the speed of light (according to Einstein)
Ya go back in time - and end up in the 80's

With our big hair
Jackets with fringes
Stretch pants
Mascara
Choreographed kicking

You got a big laugh outta 70's disco
But you became the same by a different name
Ya forgot to change your calendar 10 years in a row
Now ya can't find the pace of the new game

I play it like a ham, yeah with lots of spice
I'm the Son Of Spam in a block of ice
Yeah, I can't lay back - I get all confused
And if I slow it down you'll see the riffs I already used

CHORUS

Yeah I actually believe that if I wail up and down a scale
Then the world is gonna get up on their feet and yell...
"Hail Ronald! Hail Ronald!
Take your big head and go to Hail, Ronald!"

Yeah, I can't lay back - I get all confused
And if I slow it down you'll see the riffs I already used
I play like a ham, well that makes me Spam
And then I wonder why nobody ever wants to jam

CHORUS

Now that says it all!!!
