    That's what I was thinking as well. I just need some more years of metronome practicing and chicks will come. Thanks for telling me what I wanted to hear :D

    Yeah, I'm sure everyone is losing their mind over Nita Strauss's "playing"

    As the quote goes... "it's every man's dream to disappoint two women at once" :D

    Well I've often found myself getting some attention after a flashy wanky guitar solo... maybe you're not doing it right :lol:

    Exactly. It's not that hard. Slow down your two measures of shred into eight bars of gold and da honies be all up in yo spreadsheets, son!

    Metal guitar, shredding in particular, shouldn't begin to arouse anyone. Sweeps and arpeggios lack melody and groove, the two things that tend to dampen panties.

    If anyone is legitimately surprised as to why show-offy sweeping doesn't put women in the mood like good ol' fashioned melody, then I feel for you.

    'Course it's a joke, and a funny one at that. I just find it funny that there are in fact people who think any form of metal guitar is the way into somebody's pants. Fast does not equal pretty, folks. And believe me, when it comes to the romances and the sexy times, you really want it to be pretty, not fast. If you believe otherwise, then that just explains your single status.

    I've noticed at my gigs that bluesy, feely type solos get women all doe eyed. Fast, sweepy, rip your face off solos get dudes all doe eyed. Pick your poison.

    This video was funny and I don't want to lose sight of the fact that it wasn't serious, but I would make a general point about "shredding." Broadly conceived, it's not inherently antithetical to sex appeal at all. I have to imagine this sort of "virtuosic" playing would get the attention of the ladies:



    As others have said, groove is necessary. But speed and difficulty need not come at its expense. They only do because...most people aren't good enough to blend them. Sorry, it's the truth.

    ^ The above example after Wonderwall would surely get the attention of the opposite sex.

    In fact it would get the attention of anyone regardless of gender and previous Wonderwall playing to get a bit more serious.

    I think this Chicken was Choked with the third post above, referring as to what type of music you're applying your musical prowess on and whether it sounds ear pleasing. It's not strange that most music for sexy time has deep voices, slow tempos, a sax and some raunchy clean sounding guitar waaaaaaay in the back.

    NON musicians care about melody and looking.
    A handsome guy playing a good melody will bite all (oYo) :lol:
    A shredder only gets attention of other shredders.
    In fact the majority(non musicians) can't even notice when people are out of tune unless they are completely out of tune.
    Different types of music, there's music to have fun with friends, to dance, reggae while surfing/diving, ballads to make sex etc, only musicians care about technique.

    Besides the jokes, there are far more girls that are way more beautiful but they don't titillate the erotic zones out of my pants.
