Oh yeah? Hah, my band tried to play The Wicked End by Avenged Sevenfold, but neither me or the other guitarist could get the sweep picking right on the solo. I don't think their guitar players get enough credit for being as good as they are.
Yep, and I think vocal range is also a must. I think it's a fun idea doing solo stuff, especially when you're not involved in anything else musical at the moment.
Umm, hah, there are a looooot. But I guess a few of them are tool, afi, the red hot chili peppers, and the gipsy kings. Those are pretty much my main ones, although like I said, there are a looooooot.
What about you?
Yeah, I'm sure its nice to be a part of that, especially since balance is really overlooked these days.
The last band I was in was an alt rock group, which I played guitar for. But I've also played bass for an electronic group which was a lot of fun. I've been working on my vocals though so that I can branch out on my own if I ever feel like it.
Yeah, I agree, it is a lot easier to get meaning across on acoustic songs. If you make proper use of dynamics you can easily make an acoustic song way more powerful than a plugged-in one.
