Played 9 years now on and off more on than off. I just play as a hobby so I play whenever I like. I tend to practice hard for a period where I just focus a lot when I play around, I never structure my sessions as I always get bored and stop. Sometimes I will focus on making a particular style more than another, so then I will work from a book. I find theory dull and tedious to work with on guitar (I don't mind tedious so long as it isn't dull). I like playing a lot of jazz, classic and alt rock, I used to play a lot of shoesgaze but I no longer have an electric so yeah. I have a pretty nice acoustic and play a bit of fingerstyle blues and folk when I get to play (more off than on recently). My favourite thing to do on the guitar is to play around finding things that I like to listen to, though. I always forget how to play them, but there are quite a few bits I have written that I've been very proud of.

>tfw you just realize how easy it is to play a diminished 7th bar chord, which is the one chord you use a lot in your music but never had in your guitar vocabulary

Just bought this guy, I'm pretty excited about it. Need to change out the factory strings though, they sound awful.

I found a great eleven year old music review website a few weeks ago and they have published reviews (a "menu") every full moon since 1996.

And ofcourse the when i go on it today (a full moon) they have annonounced a "permanent vacation". Just my luck

I've had the flu for the last half week, and while you'd think being bedridden would be a prime music listening opportunity, I haven't felt like listening to anything, and the one time I did think about listening to music I was just feeling like maybe a little radio.

Is this relatable? Does being sick drain the desire to focus on music (or maybe anything) out of you?

being ill is definitely not I time for listening to music, it's far too disorienting.

speaking of things putting you off music, I've been addicted to a local comedians podcast which is great and has bumped off a lot of my music listening time. Has any musikians experienced this aswell?

 No.31209

No, not really, sick or not, I'm still listening to music.

I do however, cut the amount of time I listen, but that's because I get tired real fast when I'm sick.

 No.31218

>>31208
Yeah, I used to like LPs a lot and that totally took away from my listening time

 No.31235

Depends on whether I have a headache or not. Bass in music becomes painful whenever I have a headache... and my speakers & headphones are beefy in bass.

 No.31239

It's not based on sickness for me but mood generally speaking

What do you guys think about Painting With? My Animal Collective exposure has been only MPP and i'm really getting into this album.

On a specific album I love the technique in which one vocalist sings the lyrics and another 'echoes' it; it's really great in "Summing the Wretch" where the echo is placed just a bit later than expected creating an awesome offbeat funky-ness.

Just post sad and/or pretty albums and shit that were able to make your cold hearts crack.
One in particular that did that to me was A Boy by Doji Morita. I'm surprised it's so unpopular.

Oh my god has anyone posted on here for a week?
Well anyways, anyone who wants to join in, let's have a discussion about extreme music.

>What made you seek it out?
>How much of it can you listen to before being overwhelmed?
>Have you tried incorporating elements of it into your own music?
>Why is it that so many of the extreme style, despite working together very very well, see so little crossover?

As for myself, the answers would go
>Curiosity w/ a bit of angst
>I can't listen to more than just an album on it's intended volume per day
>I've tried playing some, but when I wanted to do extreme stuff I tried to make up my own ways.
>I seriously don't understand.

Extreme music I would classify as the stuff that has generally loud and abrasive sounds making up it's majority.

 No.31163

Ehh activity waxes and wanes on here I wouldn't worry too much about it.

>What made you seek it out?
Wanted to hear something novel and experimental. I like getting tasters of this kind of stuff to expand my ear but it's not something I often revisit.

>How much of it can you listen to before being overwhelmed?
Not much on record but in a live environment for however long I want to. Perfect example is Acid Mother's Temple who I would struggle to get through an album of but could listen to them play live all day.

>Have you tried incorporating elements of it into your own music?
I think disharmony, tension and release plays a role in any persons music. I definitely think listening to harsher music has led to greater contrasts in tone in my stuff, but I guess I have yet to go 'full retard' with it.

>...see so little crossover?
I don't really understand what you mean.

Link related: too harsh for me but very interesting sounding. 1/2

 No.31164

Link also related: pop elements and harsh elements balance one another, create a sound that is pleasing to me and satisfyingly strange. 2/2

 No.31166

Why is it that music that has "generally loud and abrasive sounds" considered extreme? I wonder how others think "extreme" could be defined as far as music goes. By that definition though, I guess I don't listen to much extreme music. I listen to a lot of inaccessible stuff, dissonant stuff, and noisy stuff, but nothing that emphasizes harshness

 No.31167

>>31166
That's a good definition, and I would agree that dissonant and noisy doesn't define it.
But yes I mean the stuff that emphasizes being abrasive.
Extreme Metal, Extreme Punk, noise, stuff like early swans.
come to think of it I can't think of any electronic extreme genres.
