@patubo Bro you obv don’t have a clue about his body of work if you say he’s “missing the point”.

@pastuiedada Guitarists who approach or are on Shawn’s leval are Holdsworth, Govan, De Lucia, Lagrene, Django. I’m prob missing a few, but Shawn will always be the greatest for me.

@0ptriX
I also think it’s very inspired by what coltrane used to do. Look up Sheets of sound if you’re interested

Now I wanna see classical violinists fucking do this. I hate when guitarists like Shawn, Jason Becker etc. aren’t respected.

@y00ked silly question the question doesn’t even involve Petrucci, maybe Gilbert or this guy, or Les Paul or this guy, even Govan or this guy. Petrucci is good, but not that good.

@MegaYoshitsune Any newcomers to Shawn should listen to him play Once Upon a Time in the West, Death Theme, Epilouge for Lisa, Rules of the Game, Get You Back, Personae, or just pretty much anything from any of his albums. And so what if he’s showing off? In all the versions of this Iv’e seen the auidence always seem to cheer like crazy. Iv’e never seen or heard anyone play anything like this, and this isn’t supposed to be nice and accesiable, it’s supposed to sound ”outside.”

Words cannot to begin to explain this. This performance is beyond all that. Just 1 little phrase of this is more intelligent then all the words a person could come up with in a life time. All the guitarist that ever have lived cannot begin to dream of having a vocabulary to play like this. Holdsworth is the only one that could I think that could at least make an attempt at least. All others would just cry.

I admire his playing, but I can’t stand his music.

I just had a picture in my mind of someone who had never heard of Shawn before and was maybe just a student at MI went to see the concert late and walked in on that. Can you imagine?

Shawn reminds me a lot of coltrane, they were both monsters in their own right on the quest for absolute spirituality. The point of these guitar solos wasnt to show off or shred. It was more to achieve a higher musical intensity, listen to “My Favourite things live at the Olatunji Concert” That was probably where shawn was aiming.
