Vai vs. Rosenwinkel

#1 Post by vaiguy55 » Fri Apr 05, 2013 10:48 am

Guys, isn't it pretty evidently clear at this point that Kurt Rosenwinkel's achievements -- both technical and artistic -- far outshine those of Steve Vai?

Evidence:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYlPqlbXI8A" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EDxp0v ... ults_video" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK1flPDd3zA" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAkONsjZhTY" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

and if you know guitar, then you have seen other YouTube of him shredding harder than anyone, ever.

Thoughts?

My thoughts are that it's interesting that you take the time to sign up to this forum to post this. :wink:

Anyway.. It's not a competition.

Jeroen ,..ozzy osbourne himself said this on a documentary I saw and he was asked why he would hire Guitarists that werent big before they played for ozzy,..his answer was those Guitarists that really want to get known ,be successful etc etc want to knock the most famous players of there perch ,..which in turn makes them awesome over the years,..

Mate its a bloody competition alright ,... :wink: in only too weeks time I audition for australias got talent ,..probably wont win it as the talent can be anything ,what ever you are good at .
But I will be playing in front of sharon osbourne ,..thats gold .ill let you know how I go .

As for Rosenwinkel ,..he shredds like a mother fucker but needs to do something about his name.,.as for out shredding every one, vai guy 55 needs to look around a little more ,..Mathias eckland [probably spelled wrong],rusty cooly, marcel conen rick renstrom just to name a few theres no end of them ,..In crossroads vai kicked serious ass,that was 30 years or so ago .with shredd you need passion, feel, hart,then you got something ,..vai has that over most shredders regardless of what I might say on my less better days, you got to give him that .

Regards Tommy.

:shock:
mr yako,...George,..see there are 4 judges for ozzys got talent ,I think a dance crew won it last year if I remember rightly.This year Sharon Osbourne is one of the Judges and I would be absolutely insane not to go and try out as you have to audition just to make the show ,you get recognition regardless as even your first audition is televised right across Australia.,,,gold once again its a win win situation,.. oh and its a competition ,..also Im not afraid to say on this site that I am one of those players that wants to knock the likes of Vai and who have you off there perch ,I believe in my self ,and I also believe that I have what it takes to do this , just you wait and see my laughing friend.

Regards Tommy.

There is good recognition, and bad recognition, just like having no rep is better than having bad rep, some of these 'auditions' are placed on these shows for comic value and air-time this is common knowledge, (not saying yours will be so) but fair enough to you, i'll reserve judgement until i see it! be sure to provide us with a link as soon as it airs!
