    I think people who say Brad's playing technique rocks have a way too subjective opinion.

    Not that I'm not subjective at all when it's about them (it'd make no sense :blush:), but I have an objective image of how they're really like. They're not the most educated musicians, it's maybe a pity to say, but it's true. Brad maybe has a potential to be outstanding, but he just has to prove it. He's not one of the guitarists that you could pick out and comment on him alone. It'd be....unreal and lame telling how bad he is on the one side, while on the other side he does so well in the band, and vice versa. He obviously needs more "movement", he uses so little effects that it's sad. His playing makes you always feel "hungry". I won't even speak of how I feel about it while listening to Symphony X for example, or Adagio :cry: Similar thing with Phoenix: They should let go of regular 6 string guitar and 4 string bass..

    One more thing: Guitar solos are not just to show off, for those who think so. Good solo has to be a top part of the song. Melody doesn't have to include technique, but technique has to include melody. Fortunately, you don't have to be educated to be imaginative, creative, original, emphatic and loved.

    he's alright. Part of being a good guitarist is being able to change things up, he does a pretty good job of that with some songs (like pushing me away live, etc.) In general, though, he has kept with some very similar ideas for songs. Nothing too "out there".... this new album will probably change that, but that's what I've heard from him in recent CDs.

    I think that the "the little things you give away" solo will show us a new side of Brad.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    The solos on In Pieces and The Little Things Give You Away are better. Probably not up to par with some people's opinions of a good solo (compared to the list of 'legendary' people posted here), But i like them. Good for brad, He should 'show off' more ;)

    All I have to say is, in regards to the solo on In Pieces, congratulations Mr. Delson on putting something on a record that will actually require effort for me to play. :p
