Favorite song (to play) in General
Warrior
Member # 6234

On Drums:
Rainmaker - Iron Maiden. (Why?) Up-tempo, great beat, and an awesome song.
Enter Sandman - Metallica. (Why?) I love that intro. Steady beat, with all those unexpected crashes, great.
A.D.I.D.A.S. - KoRn. (Why?) The beat is just awesome, playing it all over your set.

On Guitar:
Rainmaker - Iron Maiden (Why?) It's my all time favourite song, and it has great soloparts in it.
Any Exodus song that I'm able to play. (Why?) Because Exodus is extremely good guitar music, nice and aggresive, quite difficult though, but really cool to play.
Any Slipknot song I'm able to play. (Why?) Because the guitar parts are really good, and not to simple.
Any Godsmack song. (Why?) It just kicks ass.
Imperium - Machine Head. (Why?) It's one of the two songs from Machine Head I can play, and this one's the best.
Any Lamb of God song. (Why?) Cause they contain good guitar parts as well.
Shine On You crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd (Why?) Just briliant guitarwork, that's why!

On Bassguitar:
By The Way - Red Hot Chili Peppers (Why?) It just sounds great. And it's not as hard as it sounds.

On Piano:
My Immortal - Evanescence (Why?) It's the only song I'm able to play entirely on the piano.
Shine On You crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd I can only do the intro, but it sounds cool.

I once had to do something similar to this at school . Giving descriptions about one another. But it was to show you all the stuff you forgotten to tell. But they were more the kind of descriptions you'd give to a police officer. You'd be supprised what most people forgot to tell.

But I don't know wether Thuryl is trying to prove something like that, or something else.

I'm a guy. Giving a girl the name Mark would be doubtfull. You could've checked my profile ;)

Anyway, the pictures are a bit weird, I must confess. Well, at least the first one. I couldn't find any better ones though.

Indeed, and what you just said applies for all instruments. I also doubt that a machine can play music like a human being would do. A machine stays a machine, and therefor the drama will probably stay away, unles you literally record every note, but then the sampler won't be necessary anymore. Then you can just buy a CD and be done with it.
This goes for every instrument. If you record the sound of any instrument, and try to play that exact note again, that's almost impossible. You'll always hear a slight different. That's the human part of it, and that is what makes it interesting: the not extremely perfectness of it. Slight changes, little mistakes, an extra note, a forgotten note, all slight variation made in a second or less. Trying to put all those things into a sampler is impossible.

But on the other hand, samplers provide, when using good samples and a good, high tech sampler, a great sound, which can easily be mistaken for the real thing.

But the main reason for using it, is that it's far more easy and cheaper then getting an entire orchestra.

But an orchestra is more imposant though. It has a more overwhelming power then a guy with a sampler.

samplers eh? then you'll need a lot of players in your metal band, but the idea is nice. However, then you can't have all the extra things a real instruments can do, so you have the orchestra, without the possibilities.
Of course, a real orchestra sounds better, but it's a lot easier and cheaper using a sampler for them. But you are confusing a synthesizer with a sampler. A synthesizer makes sounds, and works a bit like a keyboard. A sampler plays samples, taken from synthesizers or any other instrument, or more instruments at the same time. So you can sample an entire orchestra, with one small device. It'll have as good as the same sound.

quote:
Its really not difficult to listen to a specific instrument. I do it all the time. The instruments in an orchestra all have their own sound (except the strings), so tracking down a specific instrument is not very hard. When two instruments DO have similair sounds, just listen to the height of the tone. If the tone is very high, then it might be a violon, but if its low, it could be a viola or a cello.
True, although it wasn't really my point. The problem is, I can't remember what it was :P .

Well, that's exactly what everybody thinks, but its not like that, really. Okay, there is quite some classical music in which you could think of a summernight, but in almost everything that I have, you will probably think about some disastrous things happening, people dying... Sweet summernight is not what I have in my closet.
I understand that classical music has as much subgenres as popmusic, it was just an example :) . But I hope you get my point.

quote:
However, a metal or whatever band will probably have a guitar, basguitar and a drumkit, and that's about it. With a full blown orchestra you have 10+ instruments to unleash your fantasy on. That's about what I wanted to say.
But there are a lot of metalbands that contain out of six people plus (even up to 9). Of course, most orchestra's are bigger, but there are also these small groups with only 4 or 5 instruments (sorry, don't know the word for it :rolleyes: ) And some metalbands use samplers that can imitate an entire orchestra. It's not the same as a full orchestra, but it sounds quite like it.

Anyway, You can look at that from 2 perspectives. A lot of instruments mean a lot of possibilities, but fewer instruments means that you can may more attention to those instruments. With a lot of instruments, a lot of things can happen at the same time, but to much of it can give a slightly chaotic sound. With fewer instruments, the possibilities are limited, but it gives a different sound.

And this is getting very off-topic now.
It's the Spiderweb forum :P

But I have to agree with you, although I don't really mind.

That's just something personal. Liking and disliking instruments is just prefence. I can stand almost any instrument, but my prefence goes to guitars and drumkit, which I'm both capable in playing. And that is something that matters as well. If you play, for instance, the violin, you'll probably like music that contains it. And it works the other way around as well. If you like music that contains brilliant guitarwork, you are more likely to go play guitar then the bassoon.

It also matters what you're trying to find in music. If you want music that gives you a calm and warm feeling, you probably won't end up with death metal (although there are exceptions). It's the mood you want to hear in music. If you like to hear things in a more aggresive mood, you choise metal or rock. If you like a sweet summernight mood, you'll like jazz and classical music more then rock, and so on...

quote:
I've also heard quite some classical music that was quite agressive (mostly modern classical)
If someone's searching for aggresive classical music, try the last album of Apocalyptica. It mixes both metal and classical music. Four Cello's playing metal. But the album also contains slow, classical pieces.

quote:
The best example I can give is from a game, were a bassoon symbolized factory machinery. Brilliant.
That sounds rather brilliant. But Jimmie Hendrix once played a national anthem, imitating falling bombs with his guitar. It really sounded like that. And there are more examples like these. I think most of these things are about not knowing enough about the music. I'm not really into the classical music, so I don't know that much about it. Same goes the other way around. If someone's not interested in metal, (s)he'll know littler about it then someone who is interested in it.

quote:
try doing that with a drumkit.
Try getting the diversity of a crash cymbal, a woodblock, a bassdrum and a snare out of a horn ;) And you're now comparing a complete orchestra with a drumkit. I could've said the same thing with a full brass band against a violin. ;)

I like most music, except Heavy Metal stuff with tons of swearing in it, as I find that fairly pointless.
Real metal finds ways of getting the message across without resorting to swearing (except death/thrash).

Most Trash isn't just swearing. The band Exodus is a good example of trash without an overdoses of swearing. Their lyrics are aggresive, but they don't contain that much swearing.

But this doesn't mean trash metal doesn't contain swearing, it's just possible without swearing as well.

I don't know about death metal though, but grindcore metal seems to contain a lot of swearing.

Heavy Metal
Just for anyone who's interested, Metal is the main genre, Heavy Metal is a subgenre, just like trash, power, and all the other stuff.
