ops :oops: here's the link now:

wow. I had no idea playing like this existed as early as 1973! :shock:
At 2:48 thats basically (slighty scrappy) shred as we would acknowledge it today. Those are pretty much Zakk Wylde licks (or visa versa lol)...and that big sweep...
Now, I shamefully have heard little of Richie Blackmore's playing who I know to be considered a pioneer in shred but did he really ever do anything like that at the time?

Dunno, but there were folks who could play a guitar fairly well back in 1973. :lol:

Ah, you're referring to Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow. Blackmore was a founding member of Deep Purple back in 1968. Just goes to show that everything old becomes new again (at some point)!
