    Would this be a good moment to mention how much I detest all metal?




    Fair enough.


    Alright Officer, I'll come quietly ...


    Even the ones that go crazy in water like Sodium and Calcium?

    I don't get where this they were going to get rid of Lars stuff comes from. Metallica were founded by Lars. He is the band leader.

    Interviews online with Band members who say this was the case. I think I read one where Lars addressed it.


    I quite like Lars's drumming on the black album. Not approaching being anything like a Metallica fan. 


    I think turning the bass up on AJFA would just be Turd polishing.

    Lots of bands got lumped in to 'grunge'. Almost any slightly heavy rock band that wore dirty jeans and check shirts were grunge. One of my favourite bands, Blind Melon, get classified as grunge on some lists. Then again, Janes Addiction are grunge according to some. I don't think so. (Neither are STP)


    It was the last interesting wave of music for me, perhaps that's my age. It was miles better than Britpop, which was abysmal dross. What irritated me about Britpop was its unfounded confidence and arrogance. The singer from Franz Ferdinand said that Britpop connected better with British audiences than a check shirted rocker from Seatle, utter drivel. 


    I've just listened to Pearl Jam Vs, a cracking album  no doubt.

    What an album Soup is!


    As for Grunge, I was a teen around then. All the main bands sounded different. There wasn't really a main grunge sound. I think GNR paved the way for it all regarding the death of hair metal.

    It’s not even free in U.K. for returns unless it’s faulty, I suspect same for Thomann

    I think the problem is that people may find that they have good voice and good pitching, and think "I'm a singer".

    They don't find out if they have timing until they join a band.

    I think timing is under appreciated by a lot of musicians. I don't think it gets practiced enough once you get decent. Kind of gets taken for granted. Obviously I can't speak for everyone. I've fell into the trap before. Heard back a recording of a show and my timing wasn't perfect on some bits. So this led to months of playing along with a metronome. Stripped my playing back to basics. Scales, arpeggios etc. Did the trick, now it's a regular warm up.



  6. I once played a show. An anniversary concert for a big musical at a fairly big and famous venue. We had a problem with a singer. Not tuning......timing.


    She kept running off in front of us, a beat, 2 beats, a bar. Just totally random. We had to go with her. MD's decision. In was a fairly basic tune in 4 but we ended up sounding like Dream Theater.
