    Ozzy and Black Sabbath

    >>ZakkWylde969
    Zakk Wylde is one of my favourite guitarist along with Dave Mustaine and Kirk Hammit
    i listen to the same. though BLS gets on my nerves something beause of zakks overused harmonics (hes completely ruins RRs work too with his harmonics), and you can only sing about drinking beer and machismo so much...

    metallica is my fav band though (note cliff in my av). i like the new album, but def not as good as the first 5.

    i listen to some punk too, but not any of the new stuff thats out there..mainly ramones, misfits, operation ivy, rancid, dropkick murphys (if they can be classified as punk). but otherwise, metal up your ass!

    I love Zakks style. I think he makes BLS what it is. Without him there would be no BLS. You can never sing too much about beer. But if we want to talk about the greatest guitarists I will name them.

    Zakk Wylde
    Randy
    Steve Vai
    Jimi Hendrix- By far the best ever in my mind..Its a shame
    Eddie van Halen
    Tom Morello (he's a genious with his effects..)
    Kerry King of Slayer
    Jimmy Paige (In a great band I have to name him)
    Slash for his awsome solos


    And of course Michelangelo, Yep thats his name. He not only a painter hes THE fastest shredder of all time. If you have seen a live performance you will understand.

    Add too my list. There are hundreds of awsome guitarists and I only named my influences to become a good guitarist.

    Although Sum 41 isn't the best band I met their bassist (Whats his name?) in Atlanta and hes pretty cool. They live like they are a metal band.

    >Jimi Hendrix- By far the best ever in my mind..Its a shame

    I saw this rad PBS show last night. Anyway, there was this
    artist.. First he painted a huge picture of Lennon very fast. Then
    he did a picture of Jimi. The picture sucked, but still looked semi-
    like Jimi. He said it was "Jimi on a bad day." Ooh, then he went
    back to the picture and turned it upside down, blow! It was Jimi
    in a different pose. It was so radical. The artist's name is Denny
    Dent. www.dennydent.com (you can see the picture there)..

    >Eddie van Halen

    I met his wife when I was in 9th grade. Well, I'm pretty sure it
    was his wife. And technically, I didn't really "meet" his wife as
    much as I "saw" his wife... NBC was filming a movie right by my Jr.
    High (it was called Night Sins), and Valerie Bertinelli was there (I
    think). Anyway, we cut through their set and she walked by us
    (maybe it was here. I think it was). I said "What's up?", she said
    nothing. My friend said "Howdy", she said "Hi." She hated me.
    Skank.

    >Slash for his awsome solos

    Too bad they all sound the same. Personally, I think Kurt Cobain
    wrote the greatest solos.

    Kurts solos are easy. They aren't that creative. And Slashes solos are just amazingly creative and awsome.

    Wrong, Slash's solos are not creative. They're completely random.
    I seriously doubt he's ever sat down and thought "what note
    comes next." Unlike Slash, Kurt's solos actually have a discernable
    melody.

    Just because they're slow, that doesn't mean they're easy. And
    even if they were easy to play, that doesn't mean they're easy
    to write. I don't judge a solo on how technical it is, I judge it on
    how well it conveys the emotion (I just sounded gay) of the
    musician.

    The solo to "Sappy" is one of the greatest solos I've ever heard.

    Slashes solos aren't random. They may seem random to someone who isn't adept at writting solos. Solos are made by taking a couple scales and piecing them in a fashon where they sound good. The solo to "Sweet child of mine" has perfect positioning to it.

    And Nirvanas solos suck. A true solo is supposted to rip.

    So, they're not random, they're formulaic. That's even more lame.

    What do you think Zakk Wyldes solos are? And how about every shredder known? They all use formulas to make solos. Most of Zakks stuff is just a scale sped up into hyper speed. Or a scale broken down into comfortable positioning.

    I may be a noob to C. But I've been playing guitar since I was 6. So I know what I'm talking aboot.

    And that's what makes those solos crap. They all follow the same
    formula, so there's no way they can be considered creative. Jeez,
    what book did you get this nonsense from?

    I'm sorry to say this, but music sucks today because of people like
    you. That's not meant to be insulting, it's just that you can't seem
    to grasp the fact that music is an art, not a science. Good music
    doesn't follow formulas or rely on the appearance of the performer
    to be accepted. Like any other art, music is suppose to be about
    creative expression and empathy, not technical ability. That's
    why the grunge movement of the early-mid 90s was the greatest
    thing that had ever happened in music.

    Your little metal bands may be the most skilled musicians around.
    They may be experts in theory and have more dexterity than
    anybody from any other genre, but that doesn't mean they're
    aritists; it doesn't mean they're any good at writing music or
    lyrics, because they're not.

    You have a mullet, don't you?

    >So I know what I'm talking aboot.

    Bleh, Canadians...
