To me, bass guitar lacks the resonance qualities of an instrument like cello (which is the most covered classical repertoire on bass guitar), its connection between notes and the smoothness of its attacks.
Even fretless? Well, maybe, cello still creates resonance through its awesome wooden body, which is maybe hard to recreate electronically.

Personally I'm convinced that the aptness of the bass guitar as a classical instrument is irrelevant to the experience of mastering it.

in fact, it's a vital element of their craft that they be capable of singing everything they play.

Any hint to why is this? Im curious.

Can anyone mention an electric bass player that made truly artistic solo music?
Hiromakuta previously mentionend Michael Manring, who I think is amazing.
There are some pretty cool vids of him playing on youtube.

Aspies as world leaders? We might as well substitute humanity with robots.

Steal riffs, harmonic twists and techniques from your favourites.
Learn to interpret classical pieces, Bach might be a starting point: http://www.bassmasta.net/b/bach/157651.html.
Develop style: http://muzofob.narod.ru/Arievi41.rar, this is a compilation of etudes and pieces for bass, if you can
read notes.

Interzone / Re: Can Christians Create Quality Music?

What about Tom Araya for example?
Just checked the credits up till South of Heaven, Araya has written none of the music, just some lyrics.
Most of of the music is by Hanneman and King, whereby Hanneman has written the cooler songs.

But I think Black Sabbath would qualify, and maybe Korrozia Metalla as well :)

Any chance we can get:

(a) Header image updated to current year
(b) nationaldayofslayer.org url at bottom, centered
(c) any wordcount reduction is good

?

(a.2) Header addressing the whole world, and not only America (don't forget it's gone international)

Cool list. But:
Ambassador of Hell, Investor of Artillery, Stationary Engineer of Hell, Inventor of Fireworks, Head of the HMO,

Satan CEO of Hell?

Did the number of devils grow with more bureaucracy?

This is good, it`s very enjoyable and lively.
However, "innovative" almost made me laugh. (Impressions from "Destroyer" follow) I don't remember another band which is more Sabbath worship than Legend. I think only coincidence kept Sabbath from writing these songs.

« on: April 22, 2009, 04:59:45 PM »
Metal embraces horror, death, insanity etc. because they don't matter or matter as much as the positive aspects, but if you write about positive aspects you are not making this point, i mean fear of them is transcended and they are accepted in one's own worldview. Once you accept them as 'equals' with the positive aspects, you gain a holistic vision of life, which psychologically and logically seems more sound to me.

If you treat evil as good, is it still evil and is good still good?

Other than that it gives a hell of an adrenaline rush

Guitar Pro automatically transcribes tabs to scores, also it plays the entire song on midi instrument imitations, but it sounds like shit from what I know.
Close to a World Below would be interesting, At the Gates - Primal Breath?

Dis-order sells it for 13.50, but ships from Holland, so maybe not so useful an information for you americans, since Spinefarm has no shipping costs.
