A fellow Youtuber sent me a link of this Revocation video with some amazing guitar playing that blew me away. If you listen right to the end you'll also catch the mental solo !



This reminded me of a few humorous comments on my 30 Shredders Video.

What do the guy in the video above, Joe Satriani and me all have in common ?

Yes, it's true. Having hairy arms will make you an even better guitar player. I don't know why this is. Maybe the extra hair gives extra insulation which leads to better circulation which leads to faster speeds and better reflexes ! tongue.gif

I liked the groove and solo at the end the most. There was one riff that sounded really Nuno-ish

You actually got a hairy arm comment on your video? LOL.... Really?

I can see it.....

Dude 1: Dude, I just watched this awesome video of this guy shredding the hell out of his guitar...

Dude 2: really?

Dude 1: Yea, man he had hairy arms.

Dude 2: That's awesome, I'm getting hair arms so I can shred like a beast!

ROFL!! laugh.gif

Aside from the great playing, the hairy arm thingie does NOT apply. We have a well known guitarist in Romania, having hairy arms and not being that great with his instrument and wanting to be considered a guitar here biggrin.gif So, Ben, I guess that your secret is elsewhere biggrin.gif Can't fool us!

Wou! I'm amazed of the guitar player's solo. Until that part, it was a normal powerful metal song, but the solo took it to another dimension. It's very inspiring, thanks for sharing!

Maybe it's the exact opposite! ohmy.gif , Ben you should try and shave all of your hair and maybe you'll become faster since you'll have lost that extra weight on your arms! ohmy.gif
