Alexi Laiho interview: on practicing, solos, scales...

A streaming video where he talks about soloing, how to practice, his influences and stuff like that. He mentions how he likes to mix parts of the blues scale into the pentatonic.
He plays some licks at the end. I imagine their are some tabs for the licks floating around somewhere. I havn't looked for them though.

Anyways, if you're interested.

Thanks for the link. I always enjoy listening and watching people talk about and play guitar. I knew shred wasn't dead. Some of those younger guys can play. I watched alot of the other vids that were at that link. Did you see Mark Rizzo from Soulfly? That was some intense shred. I've never heard of many of the bands, I pretty much stopped listening to the radio in the early 90's. But it's good to see alot of people were still woodshedding during the whole alternative phase of the 90's.

Not a problem.

I didn't really look around enough to check out the links.
I do remember when Soulfly hit the scene. I never really listened to them. I know I've heard them but I don't believe I thought of them as shredders. I'll have to check that video out.

Take it easy.

Does it have a/the video of Mark Rizzo playing Flamenco?

He's definitely not the premiere flamenco guitarist of the world, but it still blows my mind.

If it's there, definitely check that one out.

I had no idea. I like Machine Head. (well, I havn't listened to them in a long long time so I havn't heard their newer albums, but the album I do have is awesome, which is an old one)
