I was just watching that the other night. Excellent choice!

Somewhat a propos, here's a percussionist I saw recently:

this goes in Off topic but...

I just came back from John Mclaughlin and the 4th dimension....amazing engergy and performance. The guy still still delivers and even plays better than ever IMO. I think he is in his 70's.

Buckethead Chester ? Sorry don't get it.

I like harmony.

If you like lots of notes and bad taste then check out the bouzouki player in this romp, he at least responds to the song form.

I LOVE lots of notes and bad taste! No, I'm totally serious.

Hey hey now, no need to patronize poor little Buckethead.

...

Just taking the Micky buddha, I love Stochelo's stuff and for the record I can listen to Schoenberg all day long (not).

Here's some more Buckethead from an awesome side project with Bootsy Collins and Bernie Worrell from P-Funk and Brain (or was it Herb?) from Primus.
It's a little more funky:

After on year I could play this cr@p Len. I wouldn't be surprised if that goes for you too.

Hanging out on the minor tonic forever and playing random finger patterns vaguely in key but going nowhere leaves me stone cold.

Plectrum technique is going BACKWARDS, here is Harry Reiser in 1936.
I have his Banjo method from the thirties and the licks are way more interesting than anything I have seen buckethead do. They even connect chords convincingly, like real music.

RE: Favourite non-flamenco guitar act (in reply to chester

Nothing against Buckethead except I actually did spend a few hours trying to find an interesting clip of him playing and felt kind of cheated that I had wasted a whole bloody night.

It is like being told someone can talk real fast and they are super articulate and then off they go like Pingu on fast forward with pure random ****.

But why learn meaningful vocab if the Pingu thing is hip for teenagers. Christ put a bucket on your head and they won't even notice you are laughing at them.

But maybe this is all just self-loathing. I'm actually getting back into shredding now and wish I had had better role models the first time round.

Maybe...... It's the music that goes behind it for me too though, I don't listen to him solo constantly. I might be crazy but I like music that sounds like it's gunna rip my face off.

I can still listen to old Yngwe stuff Len and Jason Becker. For heaviness Orion by Metallica still does it for me. Motorheads Orgasmatron , Sabbath 'Wheels of confusion' . Have you heard the Hayseed Dixie cover of 'Fade to Black' ?

But I think the unsurpassed master of shred is this Italian dude. Here is a tribute band, I think the soloist is pretty solid.

This is one of my favorite ones, Masada Guitars by John Zorn played by one of the best experimental jazz guitarists at the moment, Marc Ribot. Most flamenco guitarists will love this (as it has strong arabic influence):



Enjoy!

I like that Juriaan, very like twentieth century classical guitar composers. Put me in mind of this.

Here is Leo Browers Hika composed in memorium to Takemitsu.



Rhythmic section at 2.30 if anyone is feeling impatient.

That is an interesting composition. I was searching the forum and was surprised that Erkan Ogur has not surfaced here yet. He is a Turkish guitarist that plays a fretless acoustic guitar (and the Turkish Baglama Saz). Very beautiful stuff, which most flamenco guitarists would like due to the middle eastern sound of it (in the middle of the clip you can see him playing the fretless guitar):



Enjoy!

I did a gig with a Saz player and an arabic poet. I loved the way the tuning of the microtone on the Saz with the moveable nylon frets. I am listening to the piece right now and it sounds a lot like an early blues. I'm not really sure about a lot of this fusion stuff.

Yes, I agree that you would have to like the fusion sound of Erkan Ogur to be into that. I myself are more into traditional music from the middle east. Searching the forum I was surprised that Mohammad Rezar Lotfi has not been mentioned here on the forum; he is an excellent tar (Iranian kind of Saz) player, and plays more traditional music:



In this song you can also hear the traditional Iranian (persian) way of singing, which is very beautiful, intense and interesting.

Cheers

Traditional Turkish sounds a bit like this (although this Turkish Dutch guy is a contemporary musician, I think he is amazing):

I loved the Microtonal singing of the Iranian guy. Boy do orchestras fudge this stuff when they do Bartok and the like. Will check out the Turkish stuff now.
