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.

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

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


I prefer having more hardware. I like to collect keyboards and speakers. Currently i have 7 sets of speakers, and 3 keyboards in my room. The reason i dont have a lot of software is because im terrible at mixing, so I like to spend more time playing than recording.

I dont really integrate the two worlds that much, only one of my keyboards can even be hooked up to my computer.
