    Just as the tittle suggest. I know these videos are polarizing around these parts, but I'm sure a few will still enjoy at least some parts of it. Andy James is killing it. Also, the new Abasi Jared Dines received is magnificent.

    They are all good in their own way, playing in different ways but Ola is such a killer with his tasty licks...

    Seriously. Dude has some amazing phrasing.

    Also I really really really really can't stand Polyphia or his schtick, but Tim Henson's solo was legit awesome. Awesome combination of R&B/soul and neoclassical... Never thought I'd fucking say that. :lol:

    I get ear fatigue quite quickly with these sort of long guitar collabs so I listen to just two or three a day or check out the individual videos on each person's socials. So many incredible players and its one of the best things about the internet that all these guys can come together to do a project like this. A shame Stephen's and Jason's parts had editing hiccups but they uploaded their videos themselves on their own pages.

    I was expecting much more senseless guitar wankery, but there was some really nice sounding stuff in there, Ola and the Polyphia guy beeing my favorites.

    But my favorite "shred collab" is still Jason Becker's Valley of Fire which is hard to beat ;)

    Honestly, compared to the shit I heard in previous years, most of these guys sound like they had character, rather than mostly mindless shredding. This was a huge improvement over the last 2 collabs.

    Meh for the most part, but I did enjoy Ola, Tim Henson (never heard of this guy before) and Manuel Gardner Fernandes. Especially Tim Henson was something quite different. Going to have to check his stuff out.

    Just avoid any videos where he talks or tries to be funny. You won't like his music any more, lol.

    I honestly can’t listen to Polyphia for more than a song or two, because I know Tim was involved in it, and he’s the cringiest human in existence.

    I can't listen to all of them in one sitting, it's just too dense for me.

    Ola with the great melodies and awesome vibrato.

    Here are the correct solos for both Jason Richardson and Stephen Taranto.

    It's unfortunate for both of them that nobody caught the backing track errors while "proof listening". It's not the first time this happens, but everybody's human. I like Jared's intention of simply putting the past drama behind him and bringing everybody together.

    This isn't far from the truth. Him and the other guitarist are kinda cringe when they talk, though it feels super intentional. The bassist too. Kinda like a soy boy version of steel panther, but the schtick isn't nearly as endearing. Doesn't ruin my like for the band, though. Personality aside, Tim's guitar skills/style is something I hope to be able to achieve some day. Definitely one of my favorite guitarists right now. Their drummer is pretty fucking nuts, too. I've been rocking to GOAT (and that whole album) since it came out just about daily.

    I like it when shred gets to compliment an awesome song, but shred as a song is very underwhelming. The reason why Ola and Tim Henson for example stand out is because they broke the monotony. I don’t have a problem with Jared Dines most of the time, but lately he is getting really bad imo.

    that's cause your part sounds like something from an actual song \m/

    stephen is badass too, but i feel like he's at his best when it's some 15 second clip from his iphone :lol:

    Since Tim Henson's part seems to be one of the most enyoed parts, I thought this might be worth posting.
    He did a short video tutorial for his shred contribution: Yes, he does talk in the video, but do not worry, it is not too cringy ;)
