So as some of you know, I've mentioned Jason Becker in a fair few of my posts recently, and this won't be an exception. I've seen some videos of him playing different classical pieces, such as 5th Caprice and 24th Caprice. Malmsteen I think has a few as well.

Not only that, but then I stumbled upon this video by Rick Graham, which I had seen before, but totally forgotten about:



...so I'm not that well versed in classical pieces. Not as much as I'd like to be. I guess you could say that all pieces can be adapted to electric guitar, but I'm sure there are some that are easier to adapt to electric guitar and play.

So I'm wondering if you guys could help me come up with a list of pieces that would sound nicely played on an electric guitar too. If that makes any sense whatsoever.

Here's a start:

Paganini - 5th Caprice
Paganini - 24th Caprice
Paganini - Moto Perpotuo
Bach - Partita in E (as above)

What else have we? smile.gif

One of the first guitar book that I've got was "Speed Metal" by Dave Celentano which was based on adaptations of classical and baroque music pieces to electric guitar. It was pure fun and a very effective technique workout




I've talked about this book before here: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=45594


You can check the contents to find some of the pieces covered.

Tarrega, Villa-Lobos and Brouwer lend themselves well to the texture of the electric guitar.
Bach works well on any instrument.

Here's me doing a Leo Brouwer piece, 'Etude # 6'.
Not really a shred piece, more chordal (kinda my thing anyway) ...



*That's on a Squier, Baritone Jazzmaster.

Pat Travers did Beethoven's 5th Symphony ages ago.
Kinda cheesy but it was actually a bit of a 'hit' record ...
