He was good technically but was very tame musically. I cant really fault him on technique, he sounded like Vai, if Vai wasnt trying to sound tasteful. Good phrasing etc. But just cant listen to it. Again i dont like guitar solos with backing in general. Only a few pieces and nearly none of them are metal orientated solos. You need the backing there to make it interesting. Then the second thing which lets down alot of solos is a lack of good rhythm playing behind it.

HOWEVER! Guthrie Govan rocks my socks. I have a few more videos of him elsewhere if anyone is interested.

And dream theater rule....no questions.

I don't see the facination with Guthrie, hes good but not really in the elite division of players yet. I've not heard him play any non fusion stuff yet, maybe if he can play some good rock I will like him better.

I'm not a fusion fan and prefer "good rock" but have to strongly disagree with you on Guthrie. He has covered many styles in Guitar Techniques/Lick Library etc. He usually does all the more difficult Steve Vai / Paul Gilbert tutorials. In the Winter GT issues there was a readers poll of the Best guitarists (covering all fields). Winners included Eric Johnson, David Gilmour, BB King, Mark Knopfler, Jeff Beck, EVH, SRV, Yngwie etc.etc.
Guthrie then did his own (very convincing) version of all the winners styles. Apparently the other tutors on GT were asked for their votes in this poll and two of them put Guthrie above Satriani, Gilbert etc. One of them said "Having gigged with Guthrie and seen him play loads of times, I'd say he was the scariest guitarist there is !"
I would much rather hear him play rock, but apparently he got pissed off playing music he doesn't like.

John Petrucci, for instance, is lightning fast but an excellent composer, too. His self-discipline is also exceptional. I don't like when he's improvising but I think he's a good example that a shred-king can be a great composer at the same time. While some say his music is "over-composed", to me it's a nice feature.


Amen, nobody can fault Petrucci, and if they think they can, they haven't heard enough of his music. And IMO Petrucci's great when he's improvising too. and if Dream Theater - the most amazing band in the world - musically and technically - is "fake" prog, then "real" prog must be some kind of music heaven... Which DT is anyway... Wha? I'm confused..

Oh well, Dream Theater rule.

Aimless rant over.

the only bit i liked it when his bitch comes out and he plonks the guitar on his head and plays "i'll be right here waiting for you".. that was funny..

the rest was just a showcase of technique.
