does anyone here agree with me that metal is fun to play on the guitar? i honestly hate metal (except for some metallica). but i have a friend who is a metalhead and whenever he shows me songs they are really fun to play, and some of the riffs are really cool when they dont go along with that horrible vocal job (im not even going to call it singing)

since metal is mostly pwr chords it is a blast to play, pretty easy, there are a lot of really good metal players who play the heck outta the gee-tar...I'm not a metalhead either, but it can be fun to play...

for me... the metal i listen to would be

Disturbed
Pantera
Metallica
Black Sabbath
Korn
Black Label Society
etc...

i really hate the screamo/death metal/black metal stuff... i really see no point in it.. but everyone has their tastes...

I could be a rambler from the seven dials
I don't pay taxes 'cause I never file
I don't do business that don't make me smile
I love my aeroplane 'cause she's got style
I'm a treetop flyer

I'll fly any cargo, that you can pay to run the bush league pilots, they just can't get the job done
Got to fly down into the canyon, ya' don't ever see the sun
There's no such thing as an easy run
For a treetop flyer

I like metal....I only consider bands similar to but not limited to Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica, etc. Those song are indeed fun to play. I can't solo like those guys but I'll learn soon enough.

Modern Metal is rather far from what I always thought metal was.

iron maiden i dont like because they are way too repetitive and judas priest i dont really like because of their singer. but what im saying is that modern metal, although id never listen to it, is pretty fun to play on the guitar.

Ohhhhhh, gotcha;)

I can see your point about Iron Maiden. Their lyrics didn't always fit the songs.

i'm a fan of some older 80's and 90's metal, and yes, it's a blast to play it. i started out with power chords and beer! that was all i knew, so metal and punk rock were pretty much my only 2 styles available to me when i first got a guitar. try to keep up with the ramones on downstroked power chords! it's insane.:eek:
