I have no doubt biggrin.gif, these super skilled players seem to have a really keen interest in each other smile.gif Rusty appeared along adside buckethead and Yngwqwie in a shred special I have at home. It was really interesting to read about both players side by side smile.gif

The last question will possibly make a lot of people think of how they approach guitar. I personally have a lot of experience similar to Rusty's when i meet people who talk too much and don't play at all and call themselves "guitarists". Also i meet a lot of people who only talk gear and don't practice and again call themselves "guitarists".

What's your experience?



I find millions of that kind of people. You know that I have a band and we play modern rock/metal and I know lots of new metal style guitar players that are most worried about having the newer guitar, pedal, amp or whatever than of playing good.
I have the same though with the "bands". I hear a lot of people saying that there are too many bands, lots of bands and that's why it's difficult to be known. But how many of this bands take it serious? How many bands spends hours and hours composing, recording, doing the rehearsals, practicing each musician alone, playing live often, trying to contact important peolple to make their band more known.... etc etc... what do you think?

Very few, if you count that in - chances of "breaking through" is all of a sudden very high! smile.gif

Most people don't understand what is required - the skills and the haircut isn't merely enough!

Making it with a band isn't very different from starting a business or whatever - because what you are doing is creating and advertising a product which is to be sold (whether you like it or not sad.gif ). And even those who understand it don't know how to create and advertise a product - this is of course difficult.

Many people don't like the idea of their music being seen as a product - and therefore deliberately never take it out of their bedroom. Which is...

...pretty cool as well! biggrin.gif But it all depends on what goals and visions you have.

PS Awesome topic Pavel! biggrin.gif

^couldnt agree more, There are so many things that go into being in a successful band, Im sure some of our instructors can tell us all the stuff they had to go through, I mean you gotta make sure your music is solid, recording and mixing/ mastering is decent, and then you gotta gig a lot, promote your band, its gotta be tiring! laugh.gif

But im betting its worth it wink.gif

Kris - good point about "product". See, i am myself now in progress of creating this very "product" and as long as i find it average - i'm not even trying to advertise it smile.gif

The approach and spirit is not enough - you have to also put time, money and hard work in it. But hopefully each of us makes it to their goals.

Gabriel - good job with your band so far and good luck in the future smile.gif
