What dad rock should I be listening to? I am pretty familiar with The Beatles, AC/DC, and Pink Floyd.


I like Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, Zappa, early Beefheart, Doors, Gong, Can, Tim Buckley, Velvet Underground and related acts (Lou Reed, John Cale), Jonathan Richman, 13th Floor Elevators, the Deep. I like folk acts like Dylan, Ochs, Donovan too but that's not so much classic rock I guess, but the same ballpark. Can't go wrong with some Creedence Clearwater Revival or Lynyrd Skynyrd or something along those lines either.


The Kinks
The Cure
The Who
Led Zeppelin

>bonus: dad punk

Dead Kennedys
Bad Religion
Black Flag
The Offspring


More in the vein of old school rock stuff, most of this is 70's stuff.

Blue Cheer
Bad Company
Jimi Hendrix
ZZ Top
Ted Nugent
Van Halen
Sammy Hagar

What's the instrument in this song that makes that rattly, resonant sound? It sounds like an electric piano or a harpsichord, but I'm not sure, it's probably something else entirely


That's an electric guitar with effects on it, haha. Sounds like it was run through a reverb -> chorus -> equalizer effect chain. Might be wrong, but that's what it sounds like to me. It probably sounds weird because the guitarist is sliding down with it. Very cool effect, I dig this song!


what do you mean sliding? I'd assume you mean.. you know, slides, but it doesn't sound like that to me- after all it's just playing a single chord most of the time. In any case, it's a very unique sound, I feel inspired to find out how to make it myself


Also yeaaaaa dude, that song is awesome. Stan Hubbs should be /music/core lol

what album do we start from?


My favorites:
>Thurso is a Northern Town
>Chilling in the Name Of
>I Feel Like Natte Webster
>More Noise 4 Musikchan

This thread is for the whole discog


I'm thinking of binge-listening each album from start to finish, I don't remember each track that well, so I forgot a bit which tracks I like a lot, so I hope to at least rediscover some big gems, and I'm gonna boil that list down to no more than 30, in a non-specific order. and on top of those 30, I'm gonna pick my own 10 songs that I did myself that I still like to this day. (I resent certain tracks that I've created, like, A LOT!)

So in total, I'm dropping a list of 40 tunes that R cool.


File: 1488984742593.jpg (6.12 KB, 251x201, tk54dfb6ce.jpg)

still gotta compile a full list, but I have to nominate Revenge of the Cabbages

>tfw you are working on a new embed function for musikchan and you listen to revenge of the cabbages over 9000 times while testing


Aliens, #22, and NATBH were all my tracks, lol.

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


>tfw you also realize if you learn the voicing for one dim 7 you know them all, so you dont need to learn a ton of extra voicings

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

>barre chords


If you practice the CAGED system of chords, you will be playing ridiculous amounts of barre chords and afterwards they wont bother you much


Guess I'll just have to go through the rough then

What is the balance of hardware/software like in your music?

Do you prefer one method over the other?

How well do the two worlds integrate for you?


100% software at present


i like the flexibility of software, I dont see any real benefit to having hardware other than having tangible objects to interact with, which can be inspiring


when i did have more hardware i always found that it did not mix well with softsynths. this is probably attributable to my lack of mixing skills at the time


>What is the balance of hardware/software like in your music?
100% software and likely to stay this way, unless instruments count as hardware.

>Do you prefer one method over the other?

Yes, I strongly prefer software. I'm lost without Ableton.

>How well do the two worlds integrate for you?

I haven't even touched the hardware side, haha


I totally prefer hardware. My favorite way of recording is just with my mic instruments and audacity. But maybe hardware/software is a moot point when you simply prefer using physical instruments (I mean, is that really /hardware/?)

It really depends on what you're working on though. I also like making mashups, mixes and remixes with dj software, and that's 100 percent on my computer
