Included are 7 outrageous shred/classical guitar music videos, including: Beethoven's "5th Symphony" - "The Flight of the Bumble-Bee" at the finger-bleeding speed of 300 BPM!; Bach's "Brandenburg Concerto #3"- The Great Kat shreds on 6 guitars; Paganini's "Caprice #24" "Torture Techniques" - Arsenal of Kat Torture devices and abused victims!
Kat is a VERY good guitarist. She is classically trained and can play technical pieces with ease. If you ever get a chance to listen to her playing Flight of The Bumblebee (the album version, not this piece of trash) do so. This video, however, is an embarrassment. I don't know what this video is supposed to prove or what, but everything in this sucks. The playing is sloppy and the videos on here are just plain stupid. Not worth the trouble to click and load the video for playback. Move along to something better..which is pretty much anything else.
Unattractive, plays horribly, videos are jumpy and nonsensical. Beethoven piece was nothing at all like he intended it. It was merely a battle of her trying to play over his song. It does not matter how fast you can move your hand if it just sounds like nonsense. I recommend that it be taken off Amazon.
If you're looking for classical music, you may be disappointed. I wasn't. The Great Kat plays what I like to think of as classically inspired melodic grindcore. If that sounds good to you, you may like this blast of 7 songs in 7 minutes which could possibly change the way you see music without wasting much of your time.
She could probably make a lot of money if she'd start a band that was more like the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and maybe a bit edgier. But her crazy, Satanic-feel metal stuff just has too small of an audience. I mean, she has the chops!
True to the Title. Great Kat shreds. Extremely over the top just like shred guitar should be. This video is ridiculous, offensive, wonderful, and everything I was looking for. This my not be for everyone but, if this doesn't make you happy then we probably wouldn't get along.
I like my guitars fast and loud. I'm a big fan of Dave Wronski of Slacktone and Gabriela Quintero of Rodrigo y Gabriela. So, I really enjoyed The Great Kat's new DVD- Beethoven's Guitar Shred. The new release features a loud and fast mix of heavy metal and classical played by the leather halter and black fishnet stocking-clad Great Kat with blazing riffs on Rimsky-Korsakov's "The Flight of the Bumble Bee," Beethoven's "5th Symphony," Paginini's "Caprice #24," Bach's "Brandenburg Concerto #3" and Rossini's "William Tell Overture." But be prepared for some bizarre bloody images on the videos for "Torture Techniques," "Blood" and "Islamofascists."
