His "music" is extremely horrible in my opinion. His skills are impressive though.

You know watching video i felt the same blink.gif .I know he is a amazing guitarist and i have heard him play stuff i really like but,thats just to much blah,blah,blah,blah on the guitar.Just going up and down every fret as quick as you can isnt what i like about shred.I love shred guitar (its my user name biggrin.gif ) but when it loses all sence of direction and you cant make out each note as something that sounds correct i just dont like it.Stuff like that is the only reason i can understand were some people say they dont like shred.

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

Rusty is equivalent to the power of a super massive black hole sucking in an entire planet.

And im reffering to the super massive black holes in space that are millions of times the mass of the sun, Rusty is THAT Awesome. smile.gif

I know you have said that, but I don't see him as being up to the level (at least as I define the level) of someone like Gilbert or Batio. He plays a lot of sweeps, maybe that is why you like him. But I hear some imprecise things, hitting notes on bends that are not quite on pitch, rhythmic/accenting flaws in the fast runs. I know I am being real picky, but he does some stuff that is not exactly perfect, and other guys are perfect. I don't consider him one of the very best. Sure he is very skilled, but just not up to the level of some others in my view.

From what I have read, seen and heard Yngwie is extremely up himself so he probably did say that..

Same opinion here...

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

I doubt that, putting your basic person there to listen to both, that many would feel this guy is even close to Yngwie in terms of quality. Very few.

Speed only counts when you can play at that speed as perfectly as you can as well as you do slower, keeping a perfect rhythm, and perfect accenting. And also having some feeling to your music, some soul. If not, it is disqualified from the competition. This guy is nowhere near Yngwie in terms of quality of play. He may play fast sweeps, but there is some disconnection in his play. Just another guy trying to be as fast as he can, and sacrificing quality to do that.

Been watching too much of the history channel have we? I thought they said they (black holes) were only 100 times the size of the sun. biggrin.gif

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.

This is your opinion - it doesn't mean it's correct! Watch his instructionals and you'll see he's 10 times over Yngwie!
