17:19:43 AIB234: the politics are simply silly.
17:20:16 rokchik: So what kind of stuff does everyone listen too?
17:20:21 AIB234: I suppose you could say what politics are not... but especially those
17:20:36 Gen: all kind of rock things^^
17:20:37 AIB234: I'll listen to almost anything except rap and country
17:20:42 Gen: i like dream theater
17:20:53 Gen: john petrucci lol, and his magical knob
17:20:54 Gen: loool
17:20:56 rokchik: I'm a classic rock, 80's, RATM girl with some Muse thrown in for good measure
17:20:56 AIB234: Me toooo. I'm listening to Liquid Tension Exp right now
17:21:13 Gen: AWSOME CD
17:21:27 Gen: those two albums are really great
17:21:32 AIB234: I like all the stuff you listen to rok. Though, never listened to Muse
17:21:36 rokchik: Ya kow I've never checked out Dream Theater...that will probably get me kicked off this site....LOL
17:21:43 Gen: i wish i could grow up in the 80s
17:21:58 AIB234: That will send you straight to hell nevermind this site
17:22:12 rokchik: Muse is pretty good...but then again most stuff coming out of the UK now is pretty good.
17:22:41 rokchik: I'm going there anyway LOL
17:22:49 AIB234: hehe
17:23:08 Gen: lol
17:23:16 AIB234: I want to play my guitar but work was so awful today I just feel drained to the max
17:24:12 rokchik: The 80's were a great decade...Metallica, Megadeath, GNR...awesome stuff....we'll forget about the Rick Ashley's of that time...LOL and MC Hammer although he was closer to the 90's I think.
17:24:24 Gen: lol
17:24:28 AIB234: MC Hammer was sweet. Don't hate
17:24:41 AIB234: That was back in the days when rap wasn't verbal vomit, haha
17:24:42 rokchik: You can't touch him apparently
17:24:55 AIB234: rofl
17:24:58 rokchik: MC Hammer is verbal vomit!!!!
17:25:09 AIB234: Not in comparison to today's rap.
17:25:09 Gen: loool
17:25:20 Gen: good point
17:25:52 rokchik: I'll agree with ya there...except for maybe Common, Mos Def and Eminem...Love that white boy.
17:26:00 Gen: lol
17:26:26 AIB234: I think Eminem has amazing talent but it's still verbal vomit as far as I am concerned.
17:26:42 AIB234: I can at least respect his music
17:26:46 Gen: yea its true he has talent but...
17:26:50 rokchik: the 80's had some great rap though...Public Enemy, Run DMC, Digital Underground...I mean ya gotta love the Humpty Dance
17:26:51 Gen: yea
17:27:03 AIB234: Exactly. 80s rap > all other rap
17:27:10 Gen: yea
17:27:12 rokchik: True dat
17:27:21 AIB234: fo shizzle my nizzle?
17:27:54 rokchik: holla
17:27:58 AIB234: haha
17:28:27 rokchik: I think it's cool that rock music never really had a bad time
17:28:35 Gen: yea lol
17:29:02 Gen: but the rock in the 80 was the best!
17:29:18 Gen: there are also some good stuff now but...
17:29:20 rokchik: I don't listen to much 50's stuff but pretty much every decade has great Rock music
17:29:27 Gen: 90 s are the best too
17:29:41 rokchik: 90's are good but can get very depressing
17:29:49 Gen: lol
17:29:52 rokchik: very angry your generation LOL
17:30:10 rokchik: but that is the era of RATM so ya gotta love it
17:30:20 Gen: ya lol

17:32:40 AIB234: haha
17:33:08 rokchik: What kind guitar you guys have?
17:33:35 AIB234: BC Rich Warlock Body Art Collection. Looking at Schecter's and an Ibanez this weekend, though.
17:33:45 rokchik: Shredders
17:34:32 Gen: i have an esp ltd viper 500 and a fake strat lol
17:34:37 AIB234:
17:35:13 Gen: great shape!
17:35:28 AIB234: It hurts when I practice too long. I've had to change the way I play when I practice, haha
17:35:45 rokchik: very nice
17:35:46 Gen: haha
17:35:57 Gen: hey i have a very stupid question
17:36:08 rokchik: I'm looking to get a strat actually
17:36:17 AIB234: I really, really want a Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR, but they're like $1100 -.-
17:36:29 rokchik: no stupid questions...just stupid answers LOL
17:36:46 Gen: when you re playing arrpegios chords, do you have to use the alternate picking or just dowstrokes
17:36:56 AIB234: either or, depends
17:37:02 AIB234: arpeggios are usually used for sweeping
17:37:08 Gen: i mean playing each note of a chord
17:37:26 Gen: like the intro of freebird by lynyrd skynyrd
17:37:27 AIB234: If you're not sweeping, play alt
17:37:39 rokchik: I always thought you had to alt. pick but I'm not sure
17:38:06 Gen: cuz i see many people just playing chords with down strokes
17:38:23 AIB234: then they need to develop their strum patterns
17:38:29 Gen: lol
17:38:30 rokchik: Oh...I would just downstroke...but then again I'm just learning
17:38:47 Gen: wait i m gonna give you a link
17:38:47 rokchik: for freebird I mean
17:39:05 Gen: and just tell me what the guy does
17:40:22 Gen:
17:40:26 Gen: oups lol
17:40:28 AIB234: haha
17:40:31 Gen: just hold on
17:40:34 AIB234: np
17:42:00 Gen:
17:42:18 Gen: here s it
17:43:34 rokchik: oops accidently clicked the link
17:43:59 Gen: ^^
17:44:28 AIB234: this guy is hilarious
17:44:45 Gen: lol
17:45:08 AIB234: it looks like he's doing slow sweeps
17:45:14 rokchik: I can't get it to work...strange things going on on my computer
17:45:34 Gen: oh
17:45:55 Gen: so i must use alt picking for chords too
17:46:20 AIB234: I dunno, you can do it either way
17:46:28 AIB234: imo I'd alt pick it unless you want to practise sweeps
17:46:47 Gen: okay thanks for the answer
17:47:21 AIB234: anytime
17:47:33 AIB234: i may be incorrect, but logically that sounds alright
17:47:50 Gen: k

18:11:14 AIB234: I know you're not supposed to be pulling and hammering, it;s more tapping
18:11:16 rokchik: I'm trying too
18:11:21 AIB234: but I find my legato is quieter than my regular playing
18:11:39 Gen: yea me too
18:11:45 rokchik: I've noticed mine is too
18:13:51 AIB234: I am going to try and devote myself to Petrucci's Rock Discipline DVD
18:14:10 Gen: ^^
18:15:56 rokchik: has either of you looked at Andrews theory lessons?
18:16:08 rokchik: I find they have helped me sooooo much
18:16:12 AIB234: yes I have
18:16:23 AIB234: I've taken quite a bit of the theory he has posted, but it is very good
18:16:34 AIB234: I sometimes find it hard to understand because it's only text, but he does a wonderful job

23:18:58 rokchik: LOL
23:19:00 AIB234: It's a cringing sound even when I think about it now. What about you?
23:19:11 rokchik: Nightmares!!!
23:19:13 AIB234: So now I'm the caddy, so it will still be good... but not as good to show off years of golf experience
23:19:31 rokchik: and an urge to vomit
23:19:53 rokchik: LOL...I don't golf.
23:19:56 AIB234: I'm watching the Dream Theater documentary for Systematic Chaos, their new album. I highly recommend buying the album (which comes with the DVD for freee).
23:20:05 AIB234: Haha I've been golfing since I was like 4
23:20:17 rokchik: I think golf is an excuse to wear bad clothes...LOL
23:20:22 AIB234: haha
23:20:34 rokchik: Actually golf is a very skillful game
23:20:36 AIB234: Not all of us dress up in the... attire, if you can call it that.
23:20:42 AdamWest: the long socks

23:21:34 AIB234: How did you like those Petrucci vids rokchik?
23:22:42 rokchik: Yeah I downloaded some Dream Theature stuff from iTunes earlier. Kinda like them which surprised me as not really my type of music. As for the Petrucci vids only got part way through vid and the power went just got it back about a half hour ago
23:22:54 AIB234: oh suck
23:23:42 AIB234: THe thing I really like about DT is that they often tell of a jounrey throughout their albums. Make sure you listen to The Glass Prison, my favourite song along with Learning to Live and Spirit Carries On
23:24:00 rokchik: I'm after having about 8 Keith's and sorta dropping but I'm downloading some stuff so must stay awake for a bit longer

23:24:55 rokchik: I'm like that with most guitarists
23:25:40 rokchik: I'm really trying to nail some of Morello's stuff with the wah and whammy. It's very tricky to get just right
