Only when I watch K-On.

Much of the world, present and past, is impressed by athletics, so your reply seems intentionally disingenuous.Not being able to shred doesn't bother me in the slightest. It's of absolutely zero concern.
I like to hear fast playing sometimes (faster than I can manage), but mostly it's just tedious. It's as boring and incomprehensible as someone talking extremely fast.
If what they're saying is interesting, then it's just a little annoying that it's going by too fast to follow.
If what they're saying is BS anyway - like most shredding I've heard is - then who cares?
I guess I can see the appeal if you're the sort of person who is wowed by circus tricks, or excited by athletics. (Watching people run fast? What's that all about? )
Yea, I'm not quite sure what a shredder is. I can, and do, play fast on some stuff. A fast country 2 beat for one. Some jazz guys rip but there is changes there too. Lot's of other stuff where I may play some fast lines, but never considered myself a shredder. Which is kind of funny, the rip part of my online name came from a fake stage name (we all had them, they were supposed to be funny, ha ha) Rip Shreads.
I'm one of those guys. I can play with feeling, and I have good tone and dynamic control, but I suck at playing fast. It's the bane of my existence. I sort of think that I got good at the other stuff because I can't play fast, as though it was an overcompensation, if that makes sense. I feel as though I'm the guy at the gym that has a good looking physique but can't lift any weight. Haha. If you're one of those players, or if you WERE one of those players, and got fast and can now shred, please share. I'd love some inspiration for how to move forward and get out of my rut.
I really am trying to get faster, but the alternate picking is not my strong suit. I started another thread where I asked better players than me how to improve at speed, and there are some awesome replies in that one. This thread is mostly to see how other guitarists with a similar skillset feel about being a good guitarists, but not being fast. Does it bother you not being able to shred? It really bothers me. It's like there is this universe of music that you want to access, but your stupid fingers and brain won't sync and it's just incredibly frustrating.
Anyways, not trying to bum any other players out. I'm honestly looking for ways forward as a player, and maybe if you feel similarly to me, we can get some inspiration for how to improve. Cheers, fellow guitarists.
