If you shred, apparently you have no sense of melody. If you play slow, you aren't cool because you ain't fast enough!
What do you guys see as a good guitarist and what do you tend to criticize when you see others play.
I bring this up because I've noticed alot of criticism of some famous guitarist playing styles.
I've also noticed alot of people who have learned alot of scales, wish they new how to ad lib better and people with the good improv skills wishing they new more scales.
