    Just teasing My internet connection is down, i canīt even search on google. But ibm still works. Explain that!

    So i searched a bit here at ibm and found this: http://www.ibreathemusic.com/forums/...=&threadid=565

    Just record your playing using whatever program you like (like sndrec32.exe if youīre using windows), save it as a wave file, and the use the above link to find a tool to convert the wav-file to mp3.

    Iīm using a swedish windows, itīs called 'Ljudinspelaren' here. I guess the english name for it (as it appears on the start-menu) would be 'Sound Recorder'. Itīs bundled with windows, so you should have it there somewhere. Alt. start: Click the startmenu then 'Run', type 'sndrec32' in the box that appears, and choose ok.

    I have a suspicion that you practice licks more than the application of these licks... if so, your practice is a waste of time.

    I'm not trying to be mean... but as I looked at these licks, I thought "big deal" and thought "do I want to waste my time learning more shred licks?"

    Does anybody else feel the same way? I think I'm into the sort of soloing where you hear then play and not just play memorized crap.

    call it what u want. for me all these licks help me improvise. there more licks you the better you will know what to play next. its not also about just memorizing these licks, its to get new ideas. how do you think jason becker learned to play like he use to( hes now paralyzed from ALS and cant even move ) he learned yngwie's licks and took it too his own to learn em and then inspire him to make his own lick thats not the same but is the next step. Now if you dontt want to learn more licks(thanks to luis moreno) thats fine. Im only fifteen and those licks arent all what i do in a day of playing, i also study harmony and exotic styles of music(indian & japanese) All those licks are for different styles of music, take bits and pieces from each lick like i did and aply them to your style. like i said im 15 and still got a lot to learn. so if u think those are just for memorizing think again buddy! After all this is a shred thread, it says it in the title and shred is all about being technical and expressive and dont say no because there is no shred album out there thats easy to play

    neo shredder,

    I, like you, am young (17) and also have a lot to learn. But I find it very hard to believe that it is possible to hear these licks before you play them. If you were able to... I think it might sound like you're jumping from lick to lick. But you might also be one of those people who will just go into an automatic mode when soloing. By this I mean, not completely focused on what note comes next and just playing. I used to be like that, especially when I was more into shred. However, I find it more difficult and rewarding to try to think before I play... even though it results in less speed. I remember Sculz saying that it is stupid to work on playing fast when you can't think fast.


    By the way... cherish your next summer b/c after that your going to have to get a job. At least I did, and man do I miss that endless time to practice.

    Luis,
    Humility bud... humility.

    Well, just to balance iīll take make a post more balanced towards neo shredderīs opinion. Just learning licks and playing them over and again leads to pretty boring playing and mechanical thinking, true. But most people learn from the licks, and donīt use them straight off. Instead you play small variations of them or parts of them to your personal taste of the moment, stuck in between those other notes you think up at the moment. I think this is something all guitar players do, more or less consiously. Itīs a great way to be more versatile and interesting in your playing.

    I think I might have been a little misunderstood. I just wanted to comment on the importance of actually applying these licks.

    Cuno,
    I agree with you. However, I got the impression from the fifteen year old, a point he likes to emphasize, that he just practiced these licks until he got them fast. After all, what's the point of learning a two-handed lick, when you could easily practice harmonizing the scale with two hands? Well at least that seems more productive and useful to me.

    Anyway, I don't want to give off the impression that I'm against learning licks, getting them up to speed, and learning from those licks. The thing is, if I hear a lick, I'll see what the person is doing and then apply that to my playing. I remember Eric commenting on how he never learned the licks on the videos he watched, but just got the ideas.

    Snufeldin, youīre right.

    Thatīs what I said. I remember when I got the Richie Kotzen video ( I think its called "Rock Chops" ). I did not learn one single lick from that video, but the solos Richie played at the beginning and the end of the video were sooo very inspiring...
    I really soaked those up, and did what you just described,... I watched what he did, tried to memorize some of the techniques and kinda hear the "overall sound" of that solo, and then applied that to my own playing.
    I often recommended some videos which will help you to work on your technique cuz they feature some good exercises, like the Paul Gilbert-vids.
    A lot of the vids are... well, obviously not really organized. I consider many of them more of a showcase of the player thatīs on it ( like the Kotzen-video amo. ). Their instructional value might be pretty low, but itīs amazing how inspiring those vids were for me...
    Eric
