My feeling about Cooley is that he's worked so hard to play faster than anyone, and what a great job he's done at it, but while practicing he forgot to figure out what music is about. In two words: amazing and juvanile.

Well, to be honest I wish I could do it! Furthermore it is one aspect of technique of guitar playing that frankly bores me after about 60 seconds! Bravo he can do it, and do it well! Too bad he couldv'e been a great musician - but I'm convinced that most young players that get into this have ego's that probably tells himself he's the greatest and he's obtained the epitamy of guitar playing! [:(]

Shredding is cool an all sometimes, but if thats the only thing you can do its gonna get old fast. I like Petrucci because he can shred but he also does other stuff and puts more feeling into his music. I remember watching the G3 concert with Malmsteen in it. The first 2 acts where Vai and Satch and they wer awesome, but when Malmsteen came in he looked like a fat joke and every song he played sound the same.

i agree with all of you.  personally it's the trashy tone he uses that puts me off.  i wonder how his licks would sound through a clean amp....?

He's fast but he has no tone. I mean tone that really moves you. His playing doesn't move me at all but I realize that has more to do with my taste in music. Definately amazingly fast with some serious muscle memory. Give me some slow blues on a cranked old tube amp anyday...
