Sounds like a user that bitches about everything, claims that any band that has been around over 10 years can't write good music anymore, that metal didn't exist until 1983, has a crappy band that after 5 years still hasn't learned how to play in time, self-proclaims they are great, thinks elmo is emo and blood belongs in a temple and love to make sure 75% of their posts make them sound like douche bags

It seems that most conversations have been repeated 1000 times, it happens on every board. I wish people would post "why" when answering a thread like that.

I prefer Live Evil simply cuz of Dio, I really like how he does the Ozzy stuff, I think Brad did a good job as well on SOTD, I need to get that live Sab you scored, SD.

That live Hammersmith album is the bonus disc that comes with Mob Rules (Deluxe Edition).

Ok, and to think I thought it wasn't necessary to get the Deluxe Editions of the Dio era cuz there was only live stuff.

Wino, John Christ and Pepper Keenan are the guitarists I'm gonna study now and apply that to my playing. I'm through with virtuosity...as far as me playing it goes.

I can definitely understand that.

I listened back to some things I recorded last night and my playing now sounds like someone that never heard any music recorded after 1975.

laughing very hard

You need to release that shit, SD. As for myself I actually came up with my first Stoner riff earlier, I just can't get the Stoner/Doom tone down yet.

Warm analog distortion works best (something that imitates old school Orange or Marshall amp sounds if you don't have analog gear). Lots of single note riffs, avoid over-use of power chords...I like to mix in lots of dissonant chords.

Wino often overdubs an acoustic guitar playing the same single note riffs along with the electric, gives it a meatier sound.

I don't post much 'round here these days. I'll pop in every once in awhile to see what's going on, but most of the posts are of 70's prog or jazz that I never heard of, movies that I haven't seen or requests for obsure live boots that I don't care about. I've got nothing to add.

So you're saying augmented and diminished chords?

Don't ask me "music theory" because I don't know any. I play tons of chords but don't know what any of them are called, I never know what scale I'm playing, or what key I'm playing in...I do it all by ear.

I avoid the standard root-fifth power chords because if you use them too often everything you play ends up sounding like Judas Priest.

I play by ear as well but dissonant just seems like they'd be diminished/augmented chords...

On another note, it pisses me off that Heavy Kingdom is already out in Europe and we have to wait 'til March...
