    Default Check Out This short lead solo

    .... click here to hear this short solo played by Michael Angelo Batio. When you get there, click on "fast"...It's pretty freakin good! I bet you can't play this.

    It's not how fast you play it, it's the way you play it. Ed aint the fastest player around but he's the best in terms of feel and expression. I've seen that dude live....

    The guy is talented and he knows his stuff, but he usually plays too fast for my liking.

    Gees! I wasn't trying to comare this dude to Ed... Ed is the man PERIOD! IMO! I just thought this was a good guitar piece that I stumbled upon at Guitar World. I don't know much about this dude other than he's a shredder with a funky double neck axe, but this dude can play.

    Many guitarists have likened playing the guitar to having sex. If that is the case, why would you WANT to be fast at it?
    BTW, have you noticed that the faster the guitar player is, the more dudes there are at the shows?

    it's hard to say that this solo sucked when it's just a lick from a solo, but I'm guessing that it sucked in a big wanking way. Stupid wankers with no soul.

    Now come on Phatie!! This is the guitar room, don't turn this in to the weenie touchers defenders room. Seriously!
    The solo was fast and lifeless and yes Michael is a wanker and always has been one. Paul Gilbert could play that with his eyes closed and with more feeling. I think it's funny how Michaelangelo described how he played it, then it didn't sound like his description at all.
    Just go for it!

    I don't know what it is, call me lame, but this fast stuff doesn't interest me, I mean you do have to be quite talented to play that fast, but there's no feel in these solos. Basically, the artist has just taken a bunch of notes or scales or whatever and just playing them really fast, nothing very special about it. Ed's solos have feeling, friggin bad ass rock n roll emotion! thats what makes him so good. Ed has always said he doesnt use tapping as a technique either, its how he plays. Thats when you know someone is truly an amazing guitarist, when music just comes natural to them.
