I'm in complete agreement with both of you.
Agreed, I'm one of the other 7.
I hadn't listen to Vinnie Moore either. Thanks for the introduction into his music. Liked it enough to go buy the album.
Mind's Eye is amazing, Meltdown is still my favorite by Vinnie. For a short little guy, he plays the hell out of the whole fretboard! I got to see him live in a really small club when I was in college, just blew me (and everyone else) away. It was such a small venue that I forgot about it when responding to the "guitar heroes you've seen live" thread recently. I can't believe I forgot that I saw Vinnie up close and personal!
This is one of my all-time favorite albums:
There are links in there to tracks by title + time. My favorite are tracks #1, #10, and #11 (I guess I just like the number 1?), but anything on this album is just fantastic.
Looking at the survey results...
The next build I should plan needs to have a humbucker, 12 inch radius, jumbo frets, and new territory for me will be the Floyd Rose bridge and nut. That about right?
Yes, plus perhaps a thin neck, low action, and either a compound radius or something even flatter than 12". Though if you do all this at once it might be too big a step to take and just turn you off to everything!
"Those who cannot shred are jealous of those who can"??
Every bit of equal merit: "Those who forget to flush the toilet are jealous of those who do not."
Since "shredding" is nothing but noise, why would any sane person INTENTIONALLY listen to it, OR try to emulate it?
Or why would anyone spend time in a thread that that felt so strongly against.
My first thought is a possible troll situation
Did you see Mickey Rooney’s TV Special called Bill?
I’m Bill....I mean Skinny Ass...
I'm one of those 8, but of my four shredders that I posted back on page 3, only the red Charvel has 6100 fret wire. The others are running stock medium jumbos. So I may go back and change my vote, as I was torn between frets and humbuckers.
Someone mentioned that scalloped neck feel different from jumbo frets, and I agree. Two of my guitars are scalloped, the Schecter YM-1 I posted about a few months ago, and a T-style partscaster that is scalloped from the 12th fret up. The Schecter has what looks to be 6150 fret wire, which I think suits the scalloping better than the 6000 wire in the Fender Malmsteens. The T-style has 6100 wire, so it didn't really need to be scalloped, but I just couldn't help myself.
And everything was happy! Pop music was happy, heavy metal music was happy, R&B was happy... now everything is angry. Pop music is angry, heavy metal is angry, and R&B has been replaced with rap. I blame internet trolls. They're hopelessly unhappy people.
Those of you who canNOT remember to flush the toilet are jealous of those who can. Noise is noise, quite irrespective of how many feel otherwise.
Your recollection of the '80s is a bit different from mine.
Were you born an ***hole, or did you have to work at it?
Let’s give Ass a break. His mother probably breast fed him through a straw
Yeah for sure Meltdown just as awesome, its harder edged, and as always fantastic playing both of those albums are on my playlist rotation
I'll bet born that way...but he's a perfectionist so then he worked at it once he realized his niche.
