Sorta okay. Can't hold a candle to Pat Metheny or Tony Rice.

Pachelbel would roll over in his grave.

(EDITED TO ADD:) I should have added a smiley. He is pretty entertaining. You can't really compare guitarists of such different styles.

Who does the ARFCOM crowd think is the best guitarist for solo stuff?

Jazz: Pat Metheny.

Bluegrass/folk: Bryan Sutton.

Both are regarded as virtuoso by the classical music establishment.

If he said "thanks for the compliment Americadude", shouldn't that offend me back?

He's a man, he's from china, he's a "chinaman". I can't even make the racist connection to that one. Doesn't really seem derogatory, but then I'm not a chinaman.


Anywho, he's a good guitarist. Kind of late-80's-esque, but I'm not begrudging him his fun. Certainly better at it than me. I suspect he hasn't left that bedroom since age 12 tho, which explains his dexterity.
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 10:18:59 PM EDT
He is taiwanese.

Thing with asian culture, is that you have one hobby, and just one hobby. Here in the states people go ski-ing, skydiving, have a collection of guns, motorcycles and hot rods. People are completely devoted to their hobbies, like how they used to be completely devoted to their corporations as if they were samurai for their corporate lords....

When japanese companies started laying people off in the 90s it was a huge cultural shock, and even now their society is messed up with young kids going buck wild because there is not the same "cultural contract" of job security.

Again. please

Anyone know who he is playing over? That person is the real talent, but even though he is playing over someone else, he is still good.

Who was the band and guitarist he was playing over?

I remember Scatterbrain doing some Mozart that sounded pretty good but am positive Scatterbrain isnt the band in the background.

I'm not convinved the link in the first post isn't fake--I think he's "air guitaring" to someone else's licks.

I think he's really playing it, or did and is re-syncing for the vid. I matched some of his fingerings just to see if he was ballpark and he's on the money as far as chords and placement. If you can fake it that good, you're better than the guy who did it, IMHO.

Well he isn't faking it. You can hear some slop on some the faster stuff and watching his picking
you can tell its him. Damn fine job if I say so myself. I give this kid 5 more years if he keeps it up
and we may hear about him, if metal and talent ever come back.

I haven't liked any new music since Nirvana fucked it all up.

I doubt it. Now its all rapmetal with no solos or its folk music with distortion pedals, and no solos.
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 10:57:38 PM EDT
I doubt it will come back to but just as an example any time
Malmsteen, vinnie moore, and now Stratovarius come to ATL
their shows sell out in hours.

So I still have "some hope".

Scary thing is....

He's probably even better at math.
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 11:09:14 PM EDT
It looks like he 's been watching Joe Satriani for awhile,
I'll bet he using a copy of a Stat telecaster with a Chorus pedal....
not saying he ain't good, but he's not special.. just alot in two penatonic scales.
If you want to see some guitar talent, watch Rick Emmet from Triumph,
and you can see alot of classical guitar influence.. or even the guitarest's from Tesla

"best" doesn't really apply to the guitar.

There are virtuosos in many different styles. Some great guitarists:

Eric Clapton
Phil Keaggy
Wes Montgomery
Chet Atkins
Segovia
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Mark Knopfler

And there are tons of others....

It sounds to me like he used something like Garage band to layer some tracks of himself playing overtop of someone doing a simple rendition of Pachabel's canon. Tech available nowdays makes it really easy to record and mix your own stuff.
Link Posted: 9/22/2005 5:24:41 AM EDT
Pretty good. He'd have been big in the 80's doing music for the Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure soundtrack.

He can be in my band. I'll save a chair for him.
Link Posted: 9/22/2005 5:35:00 AM EDT
Don't think he has the "I'm suffering, this is sooo hard"
facial expression down quite right. Looked like he was
having way too much fun.
If he adds a pout, I'll give him an 8.6.

I seriously think he's 'okay'. Pretty good even. But the problem is that he's playing along to a multi-tracked sequencer/sampler/recorder.

There's no way to tell how much of what you are hearing is actually something that was recorded in very slow speed and the sped up once in the sequencer/sampler.

I wouldn't dare call him stellar.

Here's someone I consider to be one of the greatest guitarists in the world today -- Eric Loy. Most of Eric's stuff is recorded live. He's a bonafide monster who puts guys like Fripp to complete shame.

MP3 clips from his site...

You ought to see Phil Keaggy perform live. He uses some sort of computer to play all the various parts of the song and loops them (even the drum parts) playing them back and playing over the top of them. You literally watch him build the song right in front of your eyes.

It is amazing.

Agreed, there's thousands of guys flailing away in their bedrooms who can do the same stuff just as well.

I'm sure fripp would disagree about being "put to shame".
Link Posted: 9/22/2005 6:01:35 AM EDT
I've seen Keaggy play a bunch of times. Eric plays with him sometimes and he even came to hang out at the store where Eric and I taught lessons many moons ago. You're right, Keaggy is indeed one of the great masters.
