Take-away from this thread:
1) Tune your guitar!
2) If you don't know the song, don't try to teach it to someone else.
3) Practice your technique before you make a high-profile lesson out of it.
4) Iz ze metal.
I'd be surprised if amazing guitarists of this caliber even know what tuning is. They could just get their techs to do it, seeing as they are extremely talented and famous enough to give lessons and have a load of views on youtube.
LOL, yeah, that one pretty much takes the cake for horrid sounds that happen to be coming from a guitar. Not sure it can be classified as an instructional video (of what NOT to do maybe), but either way, I approve!
That is terrible!... Makes me feel a hell of a lot better about my playing though!
thats pretty much what I envision when i see any dean guitar at a shop.
I'm so glad I don't work at a music store
Damn, I'm not sure what's worse, his shredding or his haircut.
I'd have to say the fact that he's wearing not only one, but -two- wristbands.
no, not really, maybe just in my first day with my acoustic, but this kid has been playing for over a year
I feel bad for anyone that thought, "I want to get better on guitar today, so I think I'll go click on a thread started by the great Shane Gibson and see what I can learn."
I'm either going to have to practice around the clock for a week to undo the damage that video did... or figure out a way to un-watch videos.
TH3B4SSM4ST3R has a lot of more videos as well. Like the "How to play technical death metal" -series.
^ God, I actually feel bad for him... He must have a lot of issues. It's like he tries TOO hard, and wants to get the internet people to think he's knowledgeable in music, since he can't get real-life people to take him seriously.
I say this genuinely, with a slight touch of sarcasm.
Yea, I liked that part where he said some tech-death song having a time signature of 28/17, which is in no way true. He also said that the song goes faster due to the (high?) time sig.
While 8/8 is technically the same as 4/4, it does have a faster-paced feeling (therefore giving the feel of a faster tempo), if I'm not wrong, as you're supposed to accentuate 8th notes rather than quarter notes, if I'm not mistaken.
Then again, I HIGHLY doubt this kid even knows what that means ... And yes, the 28/17 did bring on teh lulz . Even if he meant 28/16, that'd be rather unusual to count it in 16ths, rather than doing a more "normal" 19/8, or a 5/4 bar followed by a 9/8 bar... I shall shut up now and let the thread follow its course .
Yeap, there's no way a song would go in 28/17... A tempo change would be about 100x easier and bring the exact same benefits and result in the notation progress.
hahaha he said Meshuggah was awful. What a winner.
He tryed playing bleed....
It made me cry, also 28/17 He's pulling the petrucci timewarp again....
