This post is a little off-the-wall for me. I normally either blog about my family or some aspect of following Christ. Less frequently I write about something that just interests me personally. This post falls into that category. It’s about shred guitar.
My wife thinks it’s rather bizarre that I’m a relatively quiet, conservative person, and at the same time really like head-banging music. What can I say? I grew up in the 60’s. (That probably explains some of my other bizarre traits as well.) For the most part, though, I restrict my listening to Christian headbangers, since their popular counterparts can get pretty crude and, to me at least, inappropriate to listen to as a Christian.
Being keenly aware of that last point, I offer the following video with a word of caution. I know nothing about this guy or his group; if I did, there’s a high probability I wouldn’t recommend them. Nor do I have any intention of ever finding out more about them. I’ll stick with my old Resurrection Band albums or music from other hard-rocking artists who are first and foremost followers of Christ (which reminds me–I never answered a question Isaac asked me in the comment section of a post I did for Blog Action Day a couple of years ago. Sorry about that, Isaac. I’ll try to do that soon.)
I guess I should also point out that I like Vivaldi as much as I like hard rock. I like Mozart and heavy metal and some of almost every genre in between.
With all that said, I love this guitar solo, which I saw recommended by someone else. I could listen to this type of guitar playing, also known as shredding, all day. How about you? What kind of music do you like?
