-Or pros can think like this as second nature? Have you ever thought of that? This is why some people spend years learning the theory and putting it into practise - so that they don't need to think in these terms anymore. 'Worryingly boring and over-thought' would be the guy who doesn't know what h...

Let's take the example at hand - For the Love of God. In the first bar (after the pickup notes), Vai slides up from an A to a B. Why an A? Because an A implies a minor 11 chord, and as such, this acts as a third on top of the 'add 9' of the chord below, which in turn, gives it prominence. Irrespect...

Please please please could we avoid such stupidity - it only leads others to misuse the terms. How anyone can think they can play such a piece without even having an adequate knowledge of the harmonic framework of the song really does bemuse me. just limit yourself to correcting the mistake, having...

Like with most music, I can appreciate it for what it is. It's not even close to being anything I would put money down for though... I just to like "technically advanced" stuff just for the sake of it, but today I require a little more substance. These guys don't do it for me. But if they do it for...

Re: CHAOS

Meshuggah are notoriously known as a "love-hate" band for a lot of people. I've read tons of reviews all over the place on their material & basically, people hate these guys, or absolutely love them. I like them, so that means I'm a "liker," not a lover or a hater. :lol: Anyways, I enjoy their musi...

Nah this band is not that advanced; sort of simple really. I guess I should have recorded my Rhythmic Exercise sessions when I was 14 and put it out as an album. I could come up with 10x more material just using imagination and not breaking a sweat. In fact, I would not even have to count the beats...

I warn people to first listen to these guys on youtube. I did and was glad that I did not run out and purchase anything from them. I remember when Metal was Good and had riffs and ideas. These guys are as lame as everything else form Hollywood for the last 10 years. They play one note with a lame r...
