Saying More With 10,000 Notes Than Just One

Postby outlier on Sat Mar 13, 2004 2:17 am

Yeah, yeah, I know. There's always some guy with a gaucho hat/burglar cap/soul patch, etc. and beat-up Strat that says more with one note, yada, yada, yada.

But while I love a lot of those guys just as much as anyone, what I really unabashedly and unapologetically love is pedal to the metal shred. Got to thinking about what my top 10 list would be so here goes:

1. "Thunder and Lightning" - Thin Lizzy. "Like thunder and lightning/ g-ddamn it's so exciting/ It hits you like a hammer, g-ddamn!

2. "You Shook Me" - Loudness. Akira Takasaki blazes this one out starting with insanely fast F# minor arpeggio, before going into this whacked-out over/under two-hand tapping thing. Just nuts.

3. "Carry On" - Angra. Like Dream Theater but from Brazil and all that would mean.

4. "Someday She's Gonna Hit Back" - Thin Lizzy. More white-hot shred from John Sykes.

5. "Catch Your Train" - Uli Roth with Scorpions. The guy and the solo that started it all.

6. "Riding On The Wind" - Judas Priest. Is that an Eventide Harmonizer pitching some of the solos up an octave? Not sure, but adrenaline factor is high here.

7. "Slap In The Face" - Loudness. Japan-only single with tour-de-force solo from Akira.

8. "Gimme Your Love" - McAuley Schenker Group. Schenker's always cool, but Mitch Perry gets some good shred licks in here.

9. "Cold Sweat" - Thin Lizzy. Yet more high-octane shred from Sykes.

10. "Delivering The Goods" - Judas Priest. Cool solo, especially when it goes to the acapella part.

Everytime i hear the opening 3 notes of "Shoot High, Aim Low" by YES i always get inspired.

That album's cool. Very atmospheric. :D

Denied. Anything by jason becker blows everything above away.

Black Stallion jam is one of my favorites... he could barely lift the guitar when he recorded that....

I guess he played himself out.

Take care :)

Greg Howe = Jeff Beck + Frank Marino + Al DiMeola.

If notes were money, he'd be the Guitarist equivalent of Bill Gates...

Leo Kotke does an incredible non-stop tune on the 12 string called "Too Fast". Pretty damned impressive how he flies all over those strings... and he never stops or slows up during the whole piece. :cool:

I have always liked that JP riff too (Delivering the Goods...).

Looking forward to see JP this year. That's one reunion that I am excited about.
