    Hey, I basicly came the other way around :)

    It's good to see people step out of their little box and realize how much great music there really is!

    Let's see -

    Miles Davis
    Return to Forever (especially "No Mystery", one of the best funk albums ever made, IMO)
    - and some of the collaborations between Jeff Beck and Stanley Clarke

    That should be an interesting diversion from modern rap... :)

    true, but:

    1) i see nonsqtr listed miles, etc...you didn't upbraid him. :eyebrow:
    his posting was as off-point as mine, but i guess it's because i don't have that special little golden star. i may be one of the hoi polloi, but that doesn't give you the privilege to jump my donkey.
    be evenhanded, ey?

    2) i don't take back my suggestions, even if they weren't what silent was looking for. he will get enough suggestions in that line by folks that know the genre better than me. i was suggesting things to help expand his horizons. how is that wrong or bad? it's not like i suggested fieldy... :D

    not meaning to offend, truly, but find something more worthy of your time than calling me out on something so puerile.

    now, back to your regularly scheduled thread, which is already in progress... :D

    I was trying to get him "off" that metal trip.

    But it's cool, no problems. :D

    I like metal too. I grew up with it, and it's what got me into playing the bass in the first place.

    I do feel though, that a little "expansion" is probably a good thing.

    At the moment, I just finished learning Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" on the bass. It's a beautiful piece, and very very cool for a bass solo (if such a thing should ever materialize). :D

    In my cover band, we're currently learning "Angel" by Hendrix, that's another very beautiful tune. It's a tough one, especially for the guitar player (our guy is pretty darn good, but can you imagine playing that and singing at the same time?)

  11. lol wow, well thanks guys ill be sure to check all this out, i just looked into afi and antiflag, i can't say i really liked either
  12. hey silent method,
    although i do like rage a lot, the other bands you listed are what we call "mainstream" rock aka the stuff that your 12 year old neighbor listens to on the radio. Not to put you down or anything, but I think youre missing out on some great music.

    if you seem to like that whole alternative rock kinda thing maybe you'd like some of the following bands:
    race the sun
    foo fighters
    hello goodbye
    the verve
    at the drive-in
    the mars volta

    wow there are definitely a lot more but it's kinda hard to think of all the good music ive been listening to for the past number of years.

    hope you enjoy some of this

    Clutch - they are an absolute must!
    Pink Floyd - Another must!
    Suicidal Tendencies
    The Cars
    Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
    Joan Jett
    The Sex Pistols
