Shawn Lane – Lane’s Licks (by Guthrie Govan).pdf

I’m not trying to downplay any of his ability, but the hair tie muting the strings helps out a lot for that routine in the first video, without one it wouldn’t sound like much of anything. It’s changing genres that I think is the key.

I know many cast him aside as being monotonous but Buckethead is up there with these guys. At least I am here to tell you. A community devoted to the exchange of guitar related information and entertainment. Check out “tornado of souls” off the megadeth album “rust in peace”.

It’s going to be fun watching him for a very long time. Include a very descriptive and concise title along with one of the following including the gkvan in your post: There are plenty of books out there aimed at younger kids. Guthrie is just such an inspiration, especially with his words.


Proves what such a humble character Guthrie is. I leseon there are other guitarists at his level of technical ability, but it’s the top level Tosin Abasi springs to mind for one. Guitar submitted 2 years ago by BavidDrent.

These two examples you chose are some of the best I’ve ever heard by him for sure. He also says not to play fast over modes and scales, and that you can say more with 3 or lessoh notes than you can by playing 20 fast. Fast passages can evoke emotion just as much at least in those of us who like it as Jimi Hendrix doing a soulful bend.

GG does have a knack as a teacher and presenter, however, which makes him a lot more enjoyable shwwn.

It’s strange, because it isn’t like I don’t live instrumental music, but they just seem to have a backing track they improvised over once or twice and made that the standard. And all the metal sub genres are just people rationalizing what they like, and applying that to the larger “metal” culture” so they fit in. pane

I was truly blown away. I try to leave less room for conjecture by phrasing it that way.

Failing to follow this guideline will result in a thread removal. Sometimes I even tape the bass strings to make this easier. Finally, the way he can bend to ridiculously far notes and then bend down back playing melodies with one fret is frankly baffling.


He can do it. After a long enough time you don’t get the same excitement you got from guitar and have to branch out to other instruments to keep getting the same high.

From a more selfish perspective, it troubles me that so many people feel they have an inalienable right to post footage from any performance they attend. Some meta-commentary on gutnrie comments: His mastery of melody and technique is quite, quite rare.

A good number of the pro-downloading arguments are clearly flawed, I must say. Everything I can say about Shawn somehow feels like stating the obvious: Tosin comes to mind, but Guthrie takes the cake for me. If you would like to be considered for our govqn, message the mods! That being said, it might be his only flaw I’ve taught plenty of guitar lessons to younger kids. Govan did a series of lessons on Shawn’s style in a UK guitar mag a fw years ago iirc.

It’s just a little bit of butthurt, a little bit of shooting in the dark to try to insult this mystery guitarist’s style.
