Still waiting for it dry.gif

I don't know if its considered, but I played an acoustic version of Tears Don't Fall at a friend's birthday, and the crowd was freaking stupid dry.gif They didn't let me finish the intro and started chanting sing sing, and when I did start singing (in English) everyone gets disappointed because its in English and not in Hindi (one of my native languages, along with English tongue.gif) So, they start hooting and speaking and disturbing me and one tried to push me just so I did a mistake or stopped playing dry.gif But, I continued, did a few mistakes, skipped some vocal lines and, somehow finished the song, though I did the solo right. All in all, it was a horrible performance and even more horrible for me



Maybe not quite good expirience but yes...it counts biggrin.gif It's not always as positive as we would expect it to be smile.gif But that's the way life is tongue.gif

I had later a gig when my second guitarist failed to play intro of stairway to heaven 3 times! I just turned around and said something similar to "f**ck" and....everybody heard that. We were like 13-14 years old and that was no metal concert so the audience was pretty surprised tongue.gif

Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.

I was in high school so this goes back to about '72 -'73. Four of us has an acoustic band and we got to open a show the late John Bassett. He was a Cleveland singer/songwriter of lcal fame. Cool gig.I still own my John Bassett vinyl.

I had been giggin on drums sice age 10 so I was cool with being in front of a crowd. We did CSN&Y, Jethro Tull and who knows what else.

I don't think the language of the music can determine how good it is in any way smile.gif

You're talking about Tears Don't Fall by Bullet For My Valentine right? Great song smile.gif

Music is a universal language in itself smile.gif Here - listen to this tune, at about 03:15 - it is a very distinct style of vocalizing, without using any words - but listen to how well it sounds in the song and how well it fits the whole idea:



What I wanted to underline here, is that you don't necessarily need words to make music, even if you sing smile.gif

@Darius

It was a huge musical experience growing up when I did. I listened to the beginnings of underground FM radio, decent AM stations and was enfuenced most heavily by the progressive bands from the late 60s to mid 70s. I kinda tuned out at the disco era and moved my listening to progressive electric jazz.

Cool times for sure, specially living in Cleveland. Lots of band got there music played there first. All the early tours for everybody came through Cleveland. It was cool to see people like King Crimson, Genesis, Pink Floyd play in places no larger than a large club. The gear was interesting too. Now considered vintage, we played 60s guitars amps and drums purchased used. I'd like to have some of that back! When I was in high school you could buy a used Strat 50s or 60s for $100-200. The Les Paul got real big again at that time and everyone was dumping Strats for Pauls, sweet jesus! Real Melotrons on stage for strings. Real Rogers drums!Made in nowhere else but Cleveland.

No body wanted black face Fender amps because the "new" silver models looked cooler.

I've lived in SoCal since '83 via Landsing, Indy & Houston. I love my roots though.

Very nice. I really liked the vocals in it.I actually ordered that album a few days ago and it's on its way. I'm on a Steve Vai collection spree. I've also got Alien Love Secrets and Ultra Zone coming.

Here is another song that I have noticed for its unique use of vocals and vocoders, especially around 0:50. It's also by one of my favorite bands smile.gif

You don't know the level of stupidity, close-mindedness and anti-metalness of the people around me. dry.gif

And, yes, Tears Don't Fall is my favorite song biggrin.gif at the moment at least.

@Taka - great tune man! I have heard about Mogwai, but I never actually listened to the music - thank you!

@Yash - don't mind them, man, just see to your stuff and if you are ambitious enough, you will most likely arrive at the desired destination wink.gif

I imagine what kind of feeling this could be to have a friend playing in the local band called Led Zeppelin (fir instance...I know it's British) or Living next door to Hendrix having no idea who will he become years later...I wonder how many of our friends will be like that after another 30-40 years...Or...is this gone forever sincie we currently live in sucha consumption society = Listen a few times, find another band...no clear No1 bands anymore. Only music dinosaurs still having this advantage at the music market. I don't think this will happen again - bands like Queen or The Beatles...not in this world. I mean...there are people making awesome music but I don't think they will make such a success..

I agree with you Darius and in my opinion, there are two very important factors at work here:

1) Artists are more and more driven by achieving success rather than making music - even rock artists
2) The dinosaurs, were the ones who really invented something that came packed with sincerity smile.gif for instance - Nickelback is a great product but Led Zeppelin was a huge band having an incredible raw musical talent and they came at a time in history when what they did was not done before. This is the hardest part, as I see it - coming up with honest, heartfelt awesome music that is original
