Top 5 classical composers


Favorite era


Hate to be a classical normie, but:

1. Bach
2. Tchaikovsky
3. Beethoven
4. Mozart
5. Brahms

Favorite era is Romantic, but Baroque is right behind it.


classical is one of the best genres to be a normie in, though. So, I hate to look contrarian, but my personal favorites are probably:


Modern era is obviously my favorite. I like the romantic era a lot too, though

What's the best release of 2017 so far?

While it’s only a remaster of a release from last year, I’ve been enjoying Un Blonde’s “Good Will Come to You” quite a bit.
For this year, though, I’d say Richard Dawson’s “Peasant”

Here is my acoustic. It's a Taylor E110


I have now had this guitar for 11 years. New 110s are made in Mexico, but this was made when Taylor was still making 110s in the USA. I didnt realize that until recently. There probably isnt much difference between a USA and Mexican made 110, but it does give the guitar a certain aura of "higher quality."


>How long have you played?
Not very long, just started last june.
>What do you like to play?
Usually I start listening to something and wanting to play it, and that's partially how I've been advancing. I think the earliest style I wanted to try (back when I was still the guy you laughed at at a guitar store) was black metal, and I only had an acoustic. Turns out that's boring as fuck and as soon as I got my hands on an electric it was My Bloody Valentine and assorted doom metal. Right now a great deal of my time is eaten up by noodling around, not advancing with song ideas.
>What is your practice routine like?
It used to be just memorizing the modes of the a minor pentatonic and g major, as well as some dexterity exercises, but I sadly got content at a point and stopped really practicing anything.

As for the last it's a Gibson SG and a Sammick, laptop camera's broken sadly. Rig is weird, beat up old Crate GX-15 and a Spider V60, and I just recently got the huge gratification of plugging them both in using a friend's muff with two outputs. It gets sufficiently loud for my tastes now, and the quality of the sound isn't TOO much of an issue.

I know exactly how you feel, it's such a fun thing to do but it gets boring once you start doing the shitty practice routines people have put together.

But you have played with an amp, right?


I have played with an amp, I just dont anymore. These days I am mostly playing the Taylor.

Holy damn. This album blew me away. It's one weird, abrasive, mostly atonal experience. Lots of glitching, hard distortion and broad genre use. This is incredibly well done, very impressive all around. The only obvious flaws are that the short length and lack of structure can make some tracks forgettable at first.


File: 1503443519644.jpg (202.91 KB, 960x960, rezz mass munipilation.jpg)

All around solid album, Rezz's work sounds fresh. It's good to see more female producers around. The beats and the jumpy, heavy basslines will get you moving for sure. Along with that, there's industrial vibes all over this. It's like a hotpot of many genres. Didn't end up skipping a single track.

If you're not into typical edm build-drop music, this one, and >>31634, are definitely recommended.

Small Philadelphia (I think) power pop band's debut, very comfy, worth a listen

This is dropping tomorrow, already heard every track multiple times. Fun and cool if you're into bass music, otherwise, not. I love it.


It's been a shite year for music. My AOTY would have probably been Melody's Echo Chamber's album that was supposed to come out before she had an aneurysm

Thoughts on the new Taylor Swift?



Listening to this song is like having sex with the op image


A terrible experience

Can you guys think of any artists that are respected both in classical and pop circles?


Frank Zappa comes to mind


Basically only these two guys, but honestly neither one of them are truly accepted in the classical world. It would be extremely rare that you would see Zappa on the same program as Beethoven.


Yeah, even though I posted a pic of Greenwood, I know he isn't respected. I don't think Zappa quite makes the cut either. Maybe there's someone though. I'm considering performers too, not just composers


It's useless to imagine "pop music" before it made sense as a concept, but I'm tempted to say Liszt is the closest to fitting this bill, Lisztomania and all


Lang Lang played with Metallica at the Grammys

Stop what you are doing and go learn some Hawaiian Slack Key guitar. It is easy to get started with, sounds good, and fun to play. On top of that, it has a cool history and is genuinely a "music of the people" meaning that it has not been tainted by commercial interest.


Ledward and Fran jamming:



Fran Guidry - Manuela Boy


I am working on this tune now. Its pretty fun. Fran plays it in a more bluesy way, adding swing and a lot of improv. I play it with swing, but my improv skills are nowhere near his.


These are very nice. Don't see myself actively interested in it, but I wouldn't complain if this sorta stuff played for days on end.


I didnt care for it much at first, but like many things, once I began playing it, I found it a lot more enjoyable. Still not my main thing, but it has given me a lot of inspiration for my other projects.
