http://www.youtube.com/user/mattrach

check him out. he's like 17 years old, and a pretty freaking amazing guitarist for his age. very steve vai influenced. probably my favorite young unknown guitarist on youtube. he has that JEM that seems very popular here at GMC laugh.gif

What did you learn tonight?
while shouting so loud, you barely joyous, broken thing.
You are a voice that never sings, is what i say.
You are freezing over hell
You are bringing on that end you do so well
and you can only blame yourself, is what is say.

Ooh yes I have heard him play cannon rock or whatever it is... Gosh I don't understand how everyone loves that so much. I dont know who the original is by but I have only heard bogus covers of it and I believe it has been destroyed, or maybe it was never too special.

But back to 'Mattrach' yes he seems to be pretty good. smile.gif thanks for sharing Asphyxia Feeling

With the help of GMC, I expect my belt will be very sparkly in 10 years time biggrin.gif

I am for certain never giving up guitar. Not until I die or lose both my hands and feet.

I agree about the Canon Rock! Can't stand that song at all! I really don't know what's so special about it!

Mattrach played Tender Surrender by Vai and he screwed up the most interesting part of it because you have to pretty much be Vai to be able to play it!! Also it seems like he never went to school or something - like he is playing the guitar the whole and he has lots of signature guitars...i really wonder where did he get money for those guitars!

About his skills - really guys it's nothing impressive! With GMC you'll get much further than that because you have constructed lessons, instructors give you best possible advises and we eliminate the "doubt" about all things so you will play way better than him! You just have to be dedicated to practicing!

Gustavo Guerra is probably the number 1 "Youtube" guitarist, He writes excellent original stuff and his covers do all the songs justice.

Thanks, Pavel that was an encouraging post smile.gif

BTW, I have the same with Canon Rock, the first time I saw it I was like:...ok cool smile.gif
Then I saw how much attention it gets and I was like : Dude... :S
And then my brother heard it and now he keeps pushing me too learn that song.
And I don't want too learn it XD (well not yet, maybe after 20 other songs)

So I'm starting to hate it pretty badly O_o

And yeah Gustavo Guerra is my favourite biggrin.gif

Who knows biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Gustavo is great! BUT his compositions are a bit boring to me - no actual development of the musical sentence there! It's just basically all day long same backing track and he just improvises over it! But covers he did are really high quality!

Also - Mattrach is copying Steve Vai WAY TOO MUCH! In his playing you can hear a great deal of licks literally stolen from Vai and i bet he spent some time learning to make faces like Vai! biggrin.gif

You'll play better - keep that in mind and get your guitar! smile.gif

I was going to make a Mattrach guitar topic. I liked his take on Canon, he put his own twist on it. The New canon rock is what im talking about. But on another note I do think hes a good guitarist, just not well rounded and he did screw up big time on a part in tender surrender, Idk if someone already said that . But the bottom line is, No one is going to sound close to Steve Vai ,ever. Why would I make such a bold statement? huh.gif Because the only person who can play exactly like Steve Vai, is well Steve Vai tongue.gif biggrin.gif .

Mattrach does have some talent, but I think my favorite guitarist on youtube would have to be Troy Grady. Ik hes not mainly featured on youtube but I respect what he does. He isnt just trying to play every Steve Vai or Joe Satriani song out there ,but he is trying to find of the real secrets of shred guitar. I think 90% of youtube guitarists out there are nothing more then Robots. Learning others Riffs and licks and trying to be exactly like there idol. But what we dont relize is we may want to play exactly "like" steve vai or what not, but what we really want is to one day have a style of are own and inspire others to want to learn ARE OWN STYLE.

Does that make sense ? And also I have a lot of respect of Cguerra, Wish he spoke english in his lessons though tongue.gif


Edit : Wow I should have read the posts above, Pavels right I agree with Pavel.

ha, i see MattRach is a semi-controversial topic.

I'd like to add (this is an honest opinion, it's not brown-nosing or anything)

i kinda forgot you, pavel, are pretty young too. (i'm 17, FYI. i just use "young" because as a good guitarist that's a pretty young age, especially compared to my skills :S) really. just because all your stuff is wayyy good. i've never heard any of your personal songs (aside from some recordings from your band (or old band?) a while ago on some website)... but from lessons etc i (and everyone else) sees that you have a pretty good grasp on mostly everything about guitar theory / technique / knack for melody and if you posted videos of yourself doing songs i'm sure you'd gain / suppass mattrach's popularity. (you'd probably have to do 2 or 3 Canon Rock covers though, just for good measure / search hits, hehehe)
