Ibanez artist Ruben Wan doing his best polyphia vibe smile.gif Just kidding. he's got serious chops and the jazzy vibe sounds very cool. What do you guys think? do these guys all sound the same to you? or are they different enough?

That's a nice tune for a lullaby to help your children go to sleep biggrin.gif

I think this is the modern style of guitar playing; extended chords, inversions etc.

That's what you get when a guitar player is educated on music theory/harmony, and I am so much in favour of this hehe

Thanks Todd for introducing us to this new(??) guitar player.

One of shred guitars main problem was always when played solo it was very rarely impactful to the audience unless they were super hyped in a stadium concert.

The style to me sort of opened another doorway for a fulfilling solo guitar listening experience. Not really interested in throwing away the pick to be honest but who knows might give influence some day.

It was one of those cycles. More RnB and Soul vibes, popularized by folks like Asato, than Polyphia imo.

I enjoy listen to it, but listening to your standard minor 7 voice hammering on the 9th is something I can go without tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif .

It's a proven fact that guitar faces have a bigger impact on tone than wood does.

Yup this is the "New" Stuff smile.gif Been around for several years but it started small in instagram and tiktok and grew. Now it's what passes for 'Shredding" smile.gif

Im always open to new styles and bits of trendy playing. These things work their way in to the vocabulary of guitar and become normalized over time. tapping was wild and crazy for a short time during the late 70s smile.gif

I would like to see this style blended with blues/prog to a greater degree. A fusion of styles with some of this on top might be cool smile.gif

That's a very interesting point of view! I also think that this style allows a more intimate way of playing the guitar. You don't even need to use a backing track to make killer music.

It seems that Kris is going in a similar direction and he is sharing his journey here:
