How do you get to be able to play this fast ????

Have a look at all of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3VUBIdBaOU&search=Dragonforce and give me your feedback on what you think. Its not the most inovative video ever, but I was quite impressed to the ability of these two guitarists.
Although its not my usual cup of tea I had to take my hat of to them

OMG, that had me ROTFLMAO. The most amazing thing about that was the hair choreography.

Serious answer: First of all, the video is undoubtedly not live playing, but a pantomime over the studio recording. So a lot of physical flash is not happening during actual playing. Playing that fast? Practice, muscle memory and a low action, shredder guitar. The fastest parts are tremolo picked with the fretting hand hammer-on pull-off. Other fast parts are linear runs up and down scales with liberal use of H-O and P-O. Shaking the camera seem to add to the frenetic, high-speed feel.

You can do this Rodders -- if you want to put in the time.

Haha, I dig the PiP on the solos.

All in all, not a bad bit, if you are into shred. Just takes practice, I suppose.

Nostalia maybe? After all, it was stuff like this that spawned 'This is Spinal Tap.'

:evil: Hey now!!! Don't go talking smack about THE TAP!!!! Them's fighting words :twisted: Nigel's a GUITAR GOD and you'd better speak of him with the reverance he deserves. You're probably just jealous because your amp doesn't go to 11. :lol:

But, hey, all kidding aside, Spinal Tap rules!!!! :lol:

They've also got tapping going on, both with their fingers and with picks.

I thought it was pretty good. Well, the guitar playing at least. The video was about as cheesy as they get, but there's a lot of talent there no doubt.

I'll never be able to play like that. Then again, I have no desire to. :)

Try this:

That's Dimeola and Mclaughlin

That's an acoustic baby. Check it out halfway through when they pick up the speed.
