At first sight i thought Ben's got an endorsement deal from Schecter ohmy.gif

But anyway,it must have been an honour there standing next to legend - Jeff Hanneman !

Anyway, i preffer Ben's tone and feeling in playing more, this guy's more "thrashy" type of player, u can't even hear half of notes, like he swallowed it..

Ben's tone is WAY better, partly because Adam is using way more gain (we all know how much gain Ben uses and how much it sounds like he's using wink.gif) and partly because Adam is using EMGs which pick up way more gain than Ben's passive pickups.

This is a very good attempt, but Ben's was perfection. Ben's playing was even and extremely clean smile.gif I enjoyed watching this though, respect for Ben cool.gif

The guy can play considering the best solo he did was that Adam Stewart guy. laugh.gif Maybe because that was more of the tone for the style. I never knew you could make a 5150 sound muddy either.

But I have to agree, Ben matched the feeling and vibrato. This dude did as he said tried to do it faster, it shows. I think he did it great, only true flaw was the tone, because some of those players aren't high balls to the wall gain people.

I only saw this earlier today thanks to Spase showing it to me.. it was a nice surprise smile.gif

I have to admit to not knowing the band Arcadium but either way, it's cool to see other people running with it and being inspired by it. I don't think it will be long before we see a 40 Shredders or maybe even a 30 Shredders part II from somebody !

I wasn't referring to myself.. tongue.gif

I meant somebody else out there in the world will no doubt go one step further one day smile.gif

It's like when you see some big achievement.. it's the first one. But it then inspires more and more that end up being bigger achievements but inspired by the first one. If you know what I mean ?

I've done my duty, it's time for someone else to take up the baton wink.gif
