I've noticed the music threads on this site are absolute shit, so I plan to make a good one (or one that tries harder than the others, frankly.)
Music-(n)an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color.
So, obviously, musical opinions are diverse. There's rock, grunge, metal, heavy metal, death metal, ska, folk, rap, hip hop, classical, news age, so on so freaking forth. But I think we can all agree that music is beautiful.
So, I ask you. . .
1. Who is the most influential band or artist to date? Most people argue the Beatles, and hey, I give them serious props. But bear in mind the Beatles were influenced by artists like Elvis and Chuck Berry. Obviously, there isn't just one answer to this question. Be ready to back up your opinion.
2. Best guitarist? I believe Jimi will probably take this, but I would love to hear the rest of Narutobase's opinions.
3. Best guitar rift? Solo? (favorites welcome too*)
4. Best drum fill?*
5. Most talented drummer?*
6. Best piano composition?*
7. Band with the most interesting use of materials? (e.g Shinedown using violin in hard rock songs, Simon and Garfunkel using pots and pans for Cecelia)*
8. Best bassist?
I have plenty more questions, I'll post them later I guess. This should be enough to chew on for now.
Answer some, answer none, list your favorite bands, argue, debate, whatever. Any way you look at it, we are all united by a common interest in music on this thread.
