      It's a funny idea. I think shredding probably requires too much actual effort to become cool, though.

        Karate became cool in the 1960's. That takes a lot of effort!

          I do.

          And yeah, I shred, and I wouldn't be doing it if it didn't give me something on an emotional level.


          Like a runner's high?

            What if you shred ironically? It doesn't take too much effort just to flail away running scales while fan picking with a squealie or 5 thrown in, acting super-serious about what you're doing. Preferably in the middle of a hair band song with creepy pedophile lyrics. "Motor-innnnn!!!!!"

            Michael Angelo's 4-neck X-Wing Fighter guitar already has 56,471 irony points built in.

              let's get real folks. I mean REAL!

              If you're wearing shoes, you really aren't playing with MAXIMUM EFFORT AND ABILITY!!!

              Add another neck or two and fret with your left foot while playing open tuned slide with the other while playing dual harmonies with your hands on seperate necks.

              Now, at least you're really giving it your full effort. None of this sitting in a chair playing Bartok bull**************** on some cheap assed nylon string contraption.

                None of it's going to look serious at all unless you notice a string is a bit flat, and you fine-tune it in mid-solo. Then and only then will you be flooded with a deluge of poon after the show [read: 17-year-olds asking if they can play a few lixx on your guitar before load-out].

                    That depends ENTIRELY on the reason for the stand-off.

                    Was the standoff because Yngwie was standing up for his beliefs, or because he was being a drunken idiot? I don't know anything about the situation you refer to, so that's an honest question.

                      At the risk of taking this thread too seriously, that is a legitimate factor, I think. While I don't generally defend playing fast as an end in itself, it can be pretty fun when you're on. Last weekend I was very warmed up, and I was consistently picking sextuplets at 138 bpm(probably peanuts to some of you, but it was an accomplishent for me). I don't know that other people would want to listen to it, but it's very invigorating when your hands are being that responsive. I had to spend quite some time playing at that speed in case I couldn't do it again later.

                          Sure it looks cool, but you get sick of it after a while and it's not something I'd like to do, even if it's hard to get it right.

                              Have you ever considered, that despite detesting "shred" and all it's forms, you probably know more about shred than 99.99 percent of the population

                                Shred doesn't piss people off.

                                Being pissed off is an emotional response. Nobody has emotional responses to shred music.


                                Liar! You just had an emotional response!
