    100 notes per secound vs clear and melodic?

    Again. Everything is melody. Everything is rhythm. I can listen to the clicking of windshield wiper and argue “but this has rhythm!”. I don’t know, maybe your ears just can’t hear quality over quantity? Practice more. You’ll get there, Sport!

    100 notes per secound vs clear and melodic?

    One more… a lot of this is just noodling garbage: Also, forgot one more connotation of useless speed: complexity for complexities sake (when it doesn’t service the song).

    100 notes per secound vs clear and melodic?

    Music without thoughtful well/intentioned melody is good? Thinking no makes me narrow minded? Okay.

    100 notes per secound vs clear and melodic?

    Sorry I forgot the most important word in my rant… thoughtful melody. You can argue everything has melody. Kars for Kids has melody. With that said… this nonsense: [inb4 this has tons of melody :lol:]

    100 notes per secound vs clear and melodic?

    Sounds like your definition of fast is the likes of Chris Impellitteri. So allow me to definite wheat I mean by playing too fast: It’s faster than you’re capable of playing melodically. It’s playing what are mostly scalar runs and exercises (eg 3NPS). It’s playing something that if you played...

    100 notes per secound vs clear and melodic?

    Y’all are cherry picking examples and setting up straw man arguments. Of course fast pieces of music can be great. Is anyone claiming otherwise? Melody without speed is okay. Speed and melody are also good. But speed without melody is mostly garbage. [For the record I’m a shred guy. Grew up...

    100 notes per secound vs clear and melodic?

    Exactly this. My musician friends (piano, cello, singer) all love music. Whereas most of my guitarist friends (and most on here apparently) like specific genres of music heavily featuring guitar parts that they specifically like. I’ve posted this before (and my fellow “BluesDads” out there...

    Some memes for SS.org (Rules Posted in OP -- Please Read)

    And Wolfgangs were ~$600 for USA Special, $800-1000 for USA Standard, $400 for MIK Special EXP, and Custom Shops were $1-3k. USA HP Specials were also $800 and Custom Shops were $1-2k. (I paid $800 for a NOS Pearloid Blue top CS HP that was a NAMM piece.) Those days are long gone.

    Clips of Marshall with master at 6 vs. 1

    Check out the Weber Mass III. It’s what I’ve been using on my amps that don’t have built in attenuators. I found one for less than $100 and it has separate L/M/T attenuation.

    I love that he feels the same way about sweep arpeggios.

    Clips of Marshall with master at 6 vs. 1

    You definitely are lol. I talked with Johan Segeborn about this. Basically all of his tone comes from dimed amps. I’m talking all knobs on 10 except roll the bass down to compensate since that’s where you’ll get all your bad distortion and flub. He does this with 10” combos to half and full...

    Congrats! FWIW My first band in high school was named Xenocide after the Orson Scott Card book. I’ve always wanted one of these for the combination of that and H R Giger looking graphics.
