frank zappa. for those that don't know, frank zappa was self tought and when he solo'd he hung his balls out there. he has more than 60 albums that
he released in his lifetime and he self produced and edited them all. i will show you a couple videos now..
first, my favorite solo over....he kicks a groove in this hardcore. he is in the dorian scale. the best scale imo to solo in.
i can't imbed this for some reason but please watch it. he goes off. he has georg dude behind him on the eoectric piano. this groove is funky man.
that is my favorite solo of all time. you see him doing dive bombs in 1974.
now this one i may have posted before but it is steve vai and frank zappa dueling it out. the song is called stevies spanking. you can see the
difference how they work the fretboard, steve vai is up high in the neck working the same scale and frank is all over the fretboard.
check it out. it's a good duel
that vid owns..
this is watermelon in easter hay. it might take a sec to get used to it cause the time signature is 9/8. in my opinion it is probably the most
beautiful guitar solo ever written. frank had cancer real bad when he played ths in 88 and was one of the last times he picked up the guitar.
i'm gonna post one or two of buckethead now. this one is called jordan. he wrote it for guitar hero and there is extensive use of the kill
switch...the hammer ons and pull offs are sweet too
his lyrics are an aquired taste. see frank liked instrumentals and always said if people want to hear the human voice attached to music then he was
going to sing about what he wanted to sing about and he did. he has some pretty comtroversial lyrics. he is unmatched as a composer though. definately
the motzart of the 20th century
