    It all comes down to what you need to play in order to feel good. Now bashing people for their loved techniques (be whole note bending or 16th triplets at 240bpm), that is not cool at all.

    I would've used this as a tasty example of Friedman/Becker's feel with sweeps involved:

    Someone called for tasty as hell soloing by a metal guitarist?



    Skip to 6:00 for the solo.
    Hell, even listen to the entire song if you want

    Guthrie is nuts for sure but there were no sweeps in that, just some sweet economy picking.

    Yeah. He might be the best guitarist I can't stand. (Nothing personal, just throwin' it out there for variety.)

    I love his variation in straight/syncopated line, and the implied resolution of playing because of tasteful alternation of speed in licks. His harmonic choices also reflect a very pleasing modern jazz vocabulary, and that adds even more dimension.

    As I listen to TLD's video, I'm realizing that those things might be what I'm not liking. He's very talented and literate as a player and a musician, but… the panties are still dry.

    Sweep is from jazz...metal guys liked it and used it as well....
    And going back to classical stuff, which I hear alot.....there you do not think about the technique, more how the melodies intertwines and becomes structures, there is fast stuff, technical stuff....and you do not think about it when listening...just enjoying the music!

    Then you get to think guitar.....doh then it all gets "sweeped" into little boxes......genres, styles and so on.....
    I do not sweep much...or think much about it...I just wanna play my guitar in alot of different ways....and be able to say something!

    Structures, harmonic ladders, lines, melody, and all that are the top of the cake....down under is the beat, the feel of it.....the essence of music...the beat and how it is accented....not that I am into advanced stuff or a drummer....but that is what kicks me into playing.....and sweeps are rhytmic stuff as well...like the rest!
    Not gonna miss you know!
