I've been thinking I might try and learn the solo to Necrophagist's Fermented Offal Discharge, you could maybe give that a whirl...

Good combination of techniques maybe. I haven't looked too hard at it, or can't remember but I can tell you....HARD!

Ok, got a "surprising" suggestion for you smile.gif

All those techniques you mentioned are all very.. well best way to put it is technical! so why don't you try working on feel now? stuff like vibrato, accurate bending, picking dynamics(picking in certain parts of the string, with adjusting power), also maybe try learning some complex classical pieces or some acoustic compositions in the style of Don Ross and Tommy Emmanuel.

Those are only a few suggestions... there's allways more to learn on the guitar and in music in general, if you wanna go even further than what I just mentioned, you should try listening to other instruments, and even vocals, and try implimenting it in you'r playing.

The whole time you are talking about looking at tabs, why don't you try to play some not so difficult stuff by ear ?
It's really helpful, because you train your ear and you also train the thing that Iluha mentioned above if you really want to nail the tone of the song.

Hmm ok.. so yeah go for hybrid picking, and maybe even slap&pop, those are the only two other shred techniques I can think of right now tongue.gif

Also sweep picking with string skips is insanity if you can do it. Sweep Picking natural harmonics is a good one also. Sweep with taps.

God knows lol but I've seen some people sweep a natural harmonic pattern before. Maybe others can shed some light.

Mark,

Have you tried learning Jazz or Fusion? Try some Al DiMeola, Alan Holdsworth or Frank Gambale. In fact, Frank Gambale has an incredible sweep picking technique that you can learn from his instructional DVDs. It's almost too perfect. That should keep you busy for a while. I sure wish I could play like that. huh.gif

Figure 5 (about 4:25 in) might be an interesting technique to develop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uh-lJqNfT1E

Have you done much classical or flamenco playing?

Yeah, you definitely need to record yourself.

I suck 10x more on a recording mad.gif

By the way, can you play odd rhythms like 7/4 and odd notes like 5 per beat?

Can you play with your eyes closed?

Can you play standing up?

Do you know the entire fretboard by heart?

Oh yeah, and can you play Through the Fire and Flames in full speed? laugh.gif
