Ah ... ye-s-s-s ...

Not my thing. Also, I presume that you're not really David Vincent, although I suppose you might be. Seems unlikely, especially given your email address.

Anyway, maybe somebody, somewhere in the world might like this I suppose. That somebody wouldn't be me.

I had a look. Yngwie Malmsteen can do that, and better (well, faster) before breakfast every day.
In any case, I didn't find it particularly musical. If I want to listen to 'fast' and musical at the same time I would put on some John McLaughlin.

Ah. John "God plays guitar through me" McLaughlin. :) I used to love his stuff, back in the day. Haven't listened to any for many years now.

I was going to leave it Kevin. I don't think it's doing any harm, is it? I may have missed something ...

Same here, admittedly.. it's been years. But that may be because I'm suffering from something that apparently happens to at least some people when actively playing instruments for a long time: At one point the mind can only either listen to the music, or not listen. Background music doesn't work anymore. If there's background music when I'm talking to somebody or I'm working on something it's like having someone jabbing into my ear, and I have to turn around and switch it off.
So, I'm only putting on a record if I'm genuinely sitting down to listen, and not doing anything else, or if I'm trying to learn something by ear. Mostly the latter, as I'm also suffering from 'stuck in the brain' syndrome - if I'm not careful, music I hear will stay in my mind for days. Very troublesome. On the other hand it sounds almost as good as the real thing, so if I really want to listen to something I can as well do it in my mind.
In any case, my CD- and LP collection isn't in much use anymore.

Strange though this may sound, I find that both completely chiming with my own experience and also very heartening! Nobody seems to understand that it's almost like torture for me to have music on when I'm trying to do something else. I simply cannot have background music and work effectively. Although, strangely, I can actively listen to music and also transcribe a different tune at the same time!

My wife finds it a bit difficult that we can either have the car stereo on and keep quiet, or talk. Not both at the same time. Even if she's the one driving.
[..]
I actually heard about this type of "problem" before I was affected by it - nearly twenty years ago. A guitar player on a guitar forum, who had been a pro in his youth, described it pretty much the way I described it in the earlier post. I thought it curious at the time, and basically forgot about it. [..]
Then, some time after, maybe a few years, I really can't pinpoint when, but somewhere along the road [..] I lost the ability to have music as background noise. And I recalled what that guitar player had said. He thought it had something to do with the ability to dissect music when listening to it; it changes how you listen to music, for good.
IIRC Nano mentioned that he's pretty much the same, in another thread somewhere. I had mentioned this "problem" of mine there.

EDIT: Boiled down the content a bit - the essence is enough.

[THREAD REVIVAL - MOD]

I've heard plenty of guitarist play like that.Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Buckethead, and best of all Joe Satriani. Satriani can do it with SO much feeling and soul... he'll bring a tear to your eye.

remember, it's usually not how fast or how many notes a musician can play that makes them great, but WHAT, WHEN, and HOW they are played.
