Even the biggest rock acts of all time Zep, ACDC, metallica, relied on gigs, tours and album sales to get themselves to where they are, they certainly got no help from any of the powerful media outlets, TV, radio and newspapers.


I agree

Personally, I don't see any connection between being technically good and musically good. smile.gif

I agree that everybody can become technically good. But I am not sure everybody can become musically efficient and creative.

Music is emotion and you can shred the neck of your guitar like Flash (and not Slash) you might still be completely unable to create something musical and audible or perhaps only for a few. That means you won't sell any CD or MP3.

But I feel like I am talking to a horde of shredders so I better shut up and run now. tongue.gif

I completely agree with you , and thats why it's very important to create music in every stage of the process, don't wait to be a "gutrhrie govan", you can create amazing songs even if you're a beginner.

I agree with you!

even with the little technique some might have, music can be created, and that's the point

although, what would be of Guthrie without the shred....not the same,

or Eric Johnson?

I think being technically profficient plays a big roll when laying down your ideas accurately

Yeah, but Govan and Johnson are NOT famous, they ARE within music and guitar communities
but that doesn't count. biggrin.gif
ASK people who are not into music and you'll see,
they heard of Satriani, Santana, Clapton, Slash and few more,
those guys can be considered as famous.
And what's common to all of them?
Songs, songs that majority is able to listen without hitting the wall with their heads.
Satch is an exception here for making that happen without lyrics,
kudos to old bold guy. biggrin.gif

I agree with Muris. Unless you are a HARDCORE guitar junkie then chances are you haven't heard of Guthrie Govan. It really is all about songs. You have to appeal to the masses to become famous. Kurt Cobain could barely play his guitar compared to what we here on GMC would consider good guitar playing......but.....most people you ask would know who he is. Its all about the songs....... smile.gif

It always amazes me that the most memorable tunes are usually the simplest too, I mean I love ZZtop and they are pretty famous, but in terms of guitar playing its pretty simple but entirely effective! Look at Jimmy Page, his riffs are woven into my entire mind but again they are usually simple ideas played really well.
