Sorry to be off topic, but I have to ask. Is it true that Harrison studied with Segovia?fauxEspanol wrote:Classical guitarists, specifically flamenco players were the original "shredders" because of the speed at which they could run scale over the fingerboard. George Harrison studied with Segovia for a short while to get a feel for this fingerstyle playing. The more popular term is associated with speed note picking (with or without a pick) on electric guitar. Running scale lead-work at high speed. Some of us shred, you could say.
That's all the Yngwie I'll ever need. It's hard to listen to a whole album of that though, as brilliant as he is. He never plays it the same twice. There was a video of him playing a nylon string in a stand, with a pick of course. Man if I could play that fast.2handband wrote:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4OxW_0qqv8
I think that the track you are talking about is called "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill", which is on the Beatles' white album.fauxEspanol wrote:No, not true. But he did use a Spanish guitar speed riff on one of the Beatles sound tracks to show his appreciation for Segovia. He spent time around legendary shredder Ravi Shankar, though.Jeffrey Armbruster wrote:n.m.
Interesting - in fact his approach seems very similar to ours when we examine fingering options to play a fast scale or run with as little effort possible.DaveM wrote:If you haven't heard Frank Gambale's (Chick Corea Electrik Band) sweep picking method before, I suggest you give him a listen.
He's a gifted electric and acoustic guitarist - and a nice guy.
Most people have replied with info about "shredders", not a definition of "shredding".malc laney wrote:what is it , and do we do it?
