I have found that the best reference is John Mclaughlin's This Is The Way I Do It. Its a 3 dvd box set shows how he solos over chords, how modes tie into solos, what are modes and scales and also super cool solos that he tabs out and demos fast and slow. You can find the Box set on oink. Here Is a DL link to the tabs, chords and midi to all that is shown in the dvd.

with this article i FINALLY was able to wrap my head around polyrhythms (NOT to be confused with polymeters!)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyrhythm

Try the examples, first with both hands, then both both feet, then try with one hand and one foot... you'll feel like a badass, like you're tomas haake or sean reinert or something, hahaha

I had a decent understanding of a polyrhythm but this article gave me some closure and a very good understanding of it. Thanks!

Check this page out, it's a pretty amazing idea, and helps you get past some personal compositional blocks. However, using this method makes whatever your writing usually keyless, unless you purposely put a modal or scalar pattern into your 12 tone circle.

Ron Jarzombek is definitely one of the most progressive musicians out there today.

I've used tone rows before, but that circle of tones shit is mindblowing... i'll have to take a deeper look at it when I have more time.

Yeah, it's a lot less restricting than using tone rows, since you can use different group patterns giving many different options with your circle, instead of just taking a row, and applying retrograde and inversions to it.

And, I kind of had a brain fart in my previous post. It is pointless to use scale or mode fragments in this circle, because the tone circle's whole purpose is to eliminate the use of typical patterns and methods. Also, even if you did, there are still 12 tones being used, so it would always be keyless, regardless of one riff or lick being in one particular mode/scale.

ummm, were posts deleted from this thread or something. Because I clearly remember posts I made and others made no longer being here. I just checked up to look up some stuff for reference, and it's no longer in this thread.

Or am I just dillusional?

That's good practice. Sounds great too. Difficult only because I can't sweep barred notes too well.

yep, I have the exact same problem - that's why I've been working on this

systematically searching out my weaknesses and then smashing them \m/

Here's a video example of the man playing it, even he has some trouble up high on the neck

Yeah, that's the way to do it. I have trouble with string skipping at shred speeds too, but all it takes is practice. So much practice that you think your fingers are going to split open...And then more practice.

That's a sweet vid. He screws up playing it slow though, heh. But still, Loomis is a killer guitarist. I was checking out his new 7 string Schecter. Why don't you like that company?

Their quality control is fucking awful... I picked up a C1 at a music store, there were disgusting bubbles in the paint, jagged frets... - another thing about schecter is that they always use high quality components (pickups, tuners, bridges, etc) and yet they STILL don't play as good as other guitars in the same price range which might not have all the name brand stuff on them (like Ibanez), but play better and SOUND better (I don't think Schecter uses very good wood...)

I will admit though... Loomis' new signature guitar, the one with the ash body and maple fretboard and 26.5" scale (very unique! inbetween a fender and baritone scale)... it looks RATHER sexy, and it might just be enough to change my opinion of Schecter... I just have to play one and see what happens.

Yeah, I'd love to try one out.

A friend of mine has a Schecter, I don't know the model, but it was a higher-end one, and it was pretty great. No factory screw ups, but he did customize a lot of stuff on it. The dude builds his own guitars, and he says he would recommend them. Everyone I've talked to prefers Ibanez over them though.

I saw the Caug arpeggio in the pages before and wanted to find a way to make it function in a lighter mood so I just did this.

Code:
CAug/Maj7 Doodley:
                          1/2
e|-------------------19h20b19---
B|----------13h17/20------------
G|-------13---------------------
D|----14------------------------
A|-15---------------------------
E|------------------------------
   C  E  G# C  E  G   B C  
 |---Aug---||---Maj7---|    

And if you like sweepin', tappin', and stretchin' more, 
here's the same thing just arranged a bit differently:
                       t                       
e|-------------12h15h1920--                     
B|----------13-------------                                       
G|-------13----------------                                        
D|----14-------------------                                        
A|-15----------------------                                     
E|-------------------------
   C  E  G#  C  E  G  B C  
 |---Aug---||---Maj7---|    

Basically both variations of the riff are a set of connected arpeggios: 
CAug (C E G#) and Cmaj7 (C E G B). As you can tell, I've included the note
relative to the fret so you can connect the dots.

The first variation is what I originally played it as. I like slides and 
such so I naturally did that. I don't sweep the Aug but obviously you can.

The second one is more for the typical shred thing. Sweep where applicable.

killer jam track page.. so many progressions to jam to it's unreal, check it:
http://www.songtrellis.com/changesPage

and some shawn lane licks transcribed by guthrie govan himself for any ridiculously gnarly players (it was more or less a blow to my self-esteem but if you understand theory it's cool to see how lane arranges odd groupings of notes):
