    god... so much more. I'm drawing blanks. I'll get back to this.
  5. Hip hop is the most talentless bullshit ever made. I wouldn't call it music because none of those faggots have any musical talent. You could argue maybe one or two of them do, but most just pay people to make generic beats and fuckin little synth sound shit. While the "artists" write (omg how hard) shit that rhymes, if they don't pay some one to do that! I want one of the assholes to sit and write instrumental music that actually takes talent to make, until then I can not take any of those people serious. Any mother fucker can rap.
  6. Yea because learning to play some simple guitar riffs takes so much talent. Dude I bet that you couldn't even figure out how to use the equipment to make rap beats let alone spit halfway decent raps.
  7. those are good underground ones, but also

    Wu tang-enter the 36 chambers
    dr. dre. the chronic
    snoop dog-doggystyle

    and for some reason

    Atmospheres-God loves ugly

    always makes me geek out.
  8. LMFAO! Wow holy fuck I'm sure it takes sooo much talent to use equipment, damn if I only knew someone who could press buttons. BTW, I've been recording and writing music for 13 years so don't even give me that bullshit. A few simple riffs? I've been playing guitar for 20 years and I am enraged that you call what I do simple riffs. Listen to Muhammed Suicmez, Alexi Laiho, Zakk Wylde, Kirk Hammet, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteem, etc. I'd rather spend 20 minutes learning how to use fucking computer software then spend years mastering an instrument to make money. But hey, I prefer talent.

    Any motherfucker can chug a powerchord in drop C :wave:

    Also, if any motherfucker can rap, I'm calling you out. Post a video or an audio file of your OWN rap. You say anyone can, so put your money where your mouth is.

    Spit an ill verse.

    If you were informed about the music, you would realize that the PRODUCERS write the music, while rappers are simply lyricists. Most producers don't make "generic beats and fuckin little synth sound shit", they intelligently find SPECIFIC samples on vinyl, and alter the samples to make it their own. Or, they record drum, bass, and synth sounds themselves and edit it using programs.

    Maybe you should stop listening to shitty, rap, eh? Listen to J Dilla, Flying Lotus, and Madlib. All INSTRUMENTAL HIP HOP, like you want.

    That being said, I love metal and I love hip hop. Meshuggah, Death, old Metallica, Megadeth, Children of Bodom, Slayer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, etc.

    Why be so discriminatory?

    Also, your examples of "guitar virtuosos" are really quite pathetic. They are gratutious bullshit artists, to say the least.

    Try listening to Miles Okazaki, Adam Rogers, John McLaughlin, Wayne Krantz, Bill Frisell, or any jazz guitarist. Their level of technique and mastry of the instrument can't even be fucking compared to these "shredders" that you listed.

    You will realize that these metal clowns simply learn how to play arpeggios and scales in the modes of the major scale, melodic minor, or harmonic minor really fast, simply for shock value. That have little to offer melodically or emotionally. Do you even know what I'm talking about? Does your "talent" help you when I ask you this:

    What is the sixth mode of harmonic minor called, and what is the scale make up of it? What chord can you use over it?

    It's called Lydian #9, and you can play a F^7#9#11 over it, which equals (i.e) Asus2^7/F. A truly beautiful sound.
