    Rock is such an awesome genre, with great sub-genres like Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, Punk Rock and etc... What are people's favourite rock artists?

    I personally like anything with great guitar sounds and/or a dynamic vocalist.

    Tool. Straight off the bat. I love that band.
    Though for the last few days I have been listening to the Secret Machines a lot. Very like David Bowie, but more rock.

    I likea few of Tool's songs. Not a major fan of the band itself though. But yes, Rock is awesome. Probably has the most kind of music.

    Yeah, it spans so many sub-genres, anything from classical rock to heavier metal, its wonderful.

    But I think the rock standard has dropped a lot when comparing it to its prime in the 70s and 80s, with some crappy alternative and pop rock bands appearing.

    I haven't heard much of tool, haven't particularly liked any of their songs but haven't hate any of their songs too. Maybe I should go listen to a hit or two.

    I never knew the name of your band so I never got to listen to your awesome basslines [​IMG] Is it anything like Steve Harris?

    And rocky, you just know how to play guitar, you aren't even in a band nor have you wrote anything, how can I say you are awesome? Go write something and be a solo artist or something [​IMG]

    we're called Tyrannicide. we have nothing recorded at the moment - we're hoping to get studio time in a few weeks. my lines typically follow the guitar riffs (they're technical as fuck anywho and I write my fair share of them so I won't complain) with a few fills and creative basslines. I know little to no music theory so that stops me from being amazing.

    Well, I don't think it matter if you know no music theory, you can learn them anytime you want with the present internet usefulness [​IMG]

    And about music theory, I don't think its essential. Some of the best rock guitarists are self taught too and probably don't know any shit about that except some stuffs they read.

    I think I can actually quite like neSchn's band so many I'll like yours too, if its... you know... not too brutal. Since it follows the rock formula even if its a little louder. [​IMG]

    And rocky, I meant solo artists, as in become a musician by yourself, not playing solos from BfmV.

    What? A guitar solo only? You meant write a whole song right?

    And don't WRITE the solo, improvise. Thats way cooler [​IMG]

    Speaking of solos, heres the solo of my favourite Zepeplin song



    Not the original version, but I think jun626 does a good job covering Zeppelin's masterpieces.
