It's a good question. For a while I was practicing sight reading and arpeggios and the like, but realized that I wasn't timing my shredding. Don't get me wrong, theory is fine and all that, (although it's starting to limit my creativity), but I haven't really started to excel as much since I started timing my shredding.
Like, I can play 32nd notes at 220bpm for a period of 8 minutes, solid. That's pretty good. I have friends who say that I'm "shred-a-rific!" I think that's cool. But, I want to get better and better, you know?
Don't guess you've got a clip of that? That's hitting the string right at 30hz.
Um, I was being facetious.
Sorry... it's been a slow day around here.
Geez...all this for $20 per year.
When you can play a chromatic scale so it sounds like a glissando...you are a shredder.
If you do that on the street, you can get a ticket.
wow that was funny.
I don't think there is an actually measure of shred-ablity, and you can't really tell when to consider yourself shred. I guess you have to determine if your shred by yourself and others who listne to you.
I dunno, all my guitar player friends seem to think separate 16th's at 150-160 is pretty shred-a-fied.
Well, this is not really adding anything to GI, it'd be better suited in Misc.
Let's go there..............
How fast? The answer that comes to mind is "too fast"
I can shred like a Gene Simmons bass solo where he's dripping the blood out of his mouth.
May I refer you to the "don't try this at home" thread in the Recordings forum?
But to be a shredder, you have to do this all with an awful facial contortion.
Anyone who can top what Golden Boy does is a shredder.
I can only shred when my entire bass is below my waist.
On a serious note (Which I seem to never make): I consider shred a dirty word. Shred to me means all speed, no tonal clarity, bad/basic note choice (I'm not associating bad with basic, but it's usually minor penatonic shred)... basically Yngwie... or on the bass end of things, Billy Sheehan.
the only shredding I can do involves cheddar.
this breakfast cereal helps-
Okay, i'll try them.
Thanks for the tip.
