great answers guys...
I get your point muris..Actually a good argument...You practice so much scales that its being automatic when you make music...Its more sport than it is music..But i feel everybody judge the guitar playes as fast as he playes. The faster the better..
But you damn fast, and you musical as hell,..?
How many BPM can you play full throttle for instance ? At maximum.
I just think that there's a small percentage of the people out there that judges a guitarist depending on speed. I think that it's only among us guitarists that there's many that judges a guitarist depending on his speed. I mean, Muris' 3 greatest achievements is imo:
His phrasing (very good, I have yet to hear a boring or bad lesson from Muris).
His accuracy (Same goes with Steve Vai, every tone is played with passion and played very clear).
His Timing ( Some of those Bosnian rythmes are crazy
His humanity (Muris is a very nice and empathic person).
If I would have those mentioned above, being able to play only half as fast as Muris wouldn't bother me. But being able to play as fast as Muris, but lack the things stated above would really bother me and I don't think anyone would be able to listen to me for more than 2 minutes (or their head would explode).
