    Which of these is the worst of the musical atrocities? Go! :noodles:
  2. General Music Discussion
    I'm a fairly open minded guy when it comes to music (and other things :jj:)... I get how music evolves and is a lot of times a reaction to trends going on at the time. A good example was "The Nirvana thing" which you hear referenced a lot as a reaction to the polish on hair metal era, and the...

    It's not metal but Earth Wind and Fire kicked ass and they have always been some of the most fun tracks I've played in covers bands. Maurice White, Earth, Wind & Fire Singer and Co-Founder, Dead at 74 | Rolling Stone

    RIP Chris Squire. He passed away last night from leukemia. He was 67. :( I'm gutted. He was of my biggest musical influences.

    Avalanche Int'l Agrees to Buy JS Technologies, Maker of Suhr Guitar $10m deal, leveraged buyout by a firm with a market cap of $8b and no previous musical instrument exposure. This worries me.
  7. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Been meaning to start a thread on this for some time, and finally got off my arse to do it! This is a bit of a difficult topic to pin down, but hopefully we can all provide a bit of insight and some tips that will help us when it comes to writing solos that'll maybe help if you're a bit stuck...

    Wirelessly posted Similar to the fitness thread, anybody got any musical goals for the year? I have, and I'm gonna try to hit them all. Finish recording an EP/album - I've played on a couple of albums that have been released before, but never anything that's entirely mine. I want to rectify...

    We haven't had a good, "Everybody chips in" thread for a while. So post em up. -Freshman year of High School, I was REALLY into grunge. And not just the good shit like Soundgarden (Superunknown was the first album I ever owned as a physical CD) and AIC. I was very vocal about my favorite band...

    ...and were sadly forced to attempt to embrace your new grown up taste in music by attempting to soothe the burning lust for the rhythms of glorious battle with only over wrought progressive wankery and effeminate songs about the philosophy of human emotions. It's OK, it's never too late to make...

    Your favorite song may be cool, but it will never be oiled Tim Cappello wearing industrial chain around his neck playing a saxophone solo in motherfucking Thunderdome while Tina Turner pretends to strum an Ibanez DT-250 (the coolest star shaped guitar ever made) in a music video for a tie in...

    Sometimes, when I'm driving to work and flipping through random XM stations, I'll have recurring thoughts about what comes on the radio. I'm sure other people do as well, so let's come up with a totally non-objective, not at all opinionated (because we never do that) list of musical mysteries...

    Currently going through one, big time. Feeling really lost and stuck for inspiration. I know where I want to go, and how I want things to sound, it's just not moving anywhere. I keep writing new riffs, feeling like I'm onto something, then listening back and going "nah" and trashing them. It...

    Now that you're all psyched to be the first to make jokes about nu-metal :lol: This isn't about musical content, so much as the music industry. It's about the space between Napster changing things, and the modern tools that have reinvented the music industry (social networking, streaming, etc.)...
