i think it's fine to do a list for the beatles... it would also be great to do a separate list for just george harrison.

i don't know if lists should be numbered or not... don't really care, but...

sid, i see that you arranged your top ten alphabetically... i would actually prefer that they be arranged in order, starting with what you think is best/greatest... so that a person who looks at it will probably check out to the work piece at the top first, and hopefully be exposed to a more or less representative work... but that's just my suggestion, you're free to do it whichever way you want. looks like an excellent list. :thumb:

Oh, I see. No problem, G. I just followed an "unnumbered" order by Yousha but I could rank my list, I guess.

Top Ten, then, would be something like:

1. Valley of Eternity
2. Forbidden City
3. Tornado of Souls
4. The Ninja
5. Hangar 18
6. Lovesorrow
7. Glowing Path
8. Devil Take You Tomorrow
9. Bittersweet
10. Speed Metal Symphony

I think I'm being subjective, though. Anyway, Yousha, if you want to put this in the first post but you don't want to edit my original post (which would be great since it has the description), I could edit it instead. But let me know, I won't do it now because maybe someone has something to say or wants to keep it alphabetical.

Nothing for Asu e no sanka? Well it is a cover I guess, but you want to talk about a guitar symphony. Plus it really shows his comfortability with oriental scales. As an overall performance, it easily > SMS, as would Coloreas mi Vida and Lucretia.

covers are totally fine... i'm slowly working on a jeff beck list, and a large chunk of his best work consists of covers/arrangements

Not that it's a cover, I just didn't think it was good enough to make the list. We could put it if you want, though, instead of Coloreas or High Speed Dirt or Namida.

About SMS: to be honest, I don't particularly like it (pretty boring, actually) but I think it should stay, it reflects the skills of Friedman and people should give it a listen at least one time, especially the shredders.

I'm sorry, I meant that those last two as well were better than SMS. As for that song, I think The Ninja or Desert Island (which should be there) are better reflections than that boring speedfest.

Yeah, I saw what you meant, so I edited my post. It's OK, then. I won't defend SMS, just tell us exactly what you want to change. I mean who should climb to the Top Ten instead of SMS.

added Mustaine , though I think we could put in some more songs...... Take no Prisoner and Mechanix ?


Mechanix maybe.
Take No Prisoners is crazy, but I'd use something like Good Mourning/Black Friday before it.

I believe that Lucretia and Desert Island should both go in the top 10 tbh.

Kay, fair enough. I assume you want SMS out, which I concur, the other? Bittersweet?

Yeah that sounds right. On a side note, I'm assuming Forbidden City and Glowing Path are there for the full overall performance, correct? In that case, sounds fine.
