Hey guy just tell em it's Jazz!! :mrgreen: …..I played or tried to play, jazz guitar for many years and my instructor Bob Conti is a guy who loves to play over 300bpm and while it amazed me he could play at that speed it also seemed to just overwhelm you with a barrage of notes that after a few minutes just became one, I preferred when he played a nice slow melody. The simple tune in time and tasty is much more enjoyable to people I find as well, flash only goes so far. If people recognize the tune and can tap along or sing it's all good!

I listen to progressive jazz one time that was it , I was not impressed nor did I enjoy it . I think some one just came up with a way to play random scale and made a style out of it . I will stick with country and old rock and bluegrass and of course the Celtic and the jigs and horn pipes. always to thy own self be true.
