Boh, like most threads start: Don't know if it has been done before and should be in this forum, but I think it fits. :p:

Lets name all the misinformation we encountered during our life. Well all... a lot. Maybe somebody will be cured from some of them by reading this. And if that doesn't happen I think it's fun anyway.

Voila:

-playing fast is the opposite of playing with emotion

-music HAS emotion

-arpeggio's can sometimes be called arrechepeggio's in which case they can only be played by sweeping really fast.

-Sweeping can only be used to play arrechepeggio's.

-You can't play fast on a strat *cough* Yngwie & Chris *cough*

-Knowing theory undermines creativity and emotion again.

-Playing with a metronome makes your playing sound mechanical.

-So you should never use a metronome, play slow and without using any scale or harmony knowledge and the music will experience emotion.

-Slash is the fastest guitarist ever so don't listen to FP :p:

-There is a conspiracy going on so nobody will give you that secret scale that makes you a virtuoso.

-The fastest way to pick is by using your fingers only.

-Anchoring is nescesary for control and accuracy.

-Yngwie plays fast only.

-Hey those shredders JUST play fast. So shred is easy to play.

-The first step is shredding with powerchords.

-A solo is somekind of trick you can learn in a sec but nobody seems nice enough to tell you.

-There is no need to practise chromatic lines because you can do that with slides.

-Owning a guitar for 15 years will aid your playing ability more than practising it two hours a day for less than 15 years.

-Playing with a pick is for beginners only.

^Actually no, it's Marcus Paus. Says the guy with a Nirvana avatar.

A lot of these are kinda silly. No one thinks you can't shred on a Strat?look at Iron Maiden. They're not shredders, but they are pretty fast.

Playing with a pick is for beginners only? I've never heard that one.

The knowing theory undermines...yada yada, is a good one. A lot of people don't learn theory because they think it will destroy all emotions from their playing, that they'll become an over-thinking theory freak.

omg how stupid do people have to be to read the thread name "Funny Misconceptions" not "point out that the list that was posted actually contains things that aren't true and make yourself look like a 'tard". just post some misconceptions.

- ALL shred just goes up and down a scale as fast as possible.

- If you have a serious life problem, the best course of action is to ask an internet forum... NOT to talk to your parents, authorities, friends etc.

- If you have a serious life problem the best place to ask for advice is the Pit, the place for all of the crap that doesnt fit into the rest of the forum.

- Chuck Norris jokes are still funny

- Vibrato=emotion

- if somebody elses opinion doesnt match yours it's immediately invalid, and that person is a stupid fuck bubble

- If nobody answers your question, posting a new thread every 5 seconds wil get it answered.

- If you get into an arguement and then the other guy calms down and starts telling you that you should be a MOD, you should trust him.

- If that same person tells you to PM an Admin to ask to become a MOD then you should do that, because that will get you everywhere in life.

Hmm, a few misconceptions I've heard:

- Yngwie sucks, because he only gets his speed from tapping. :confused:

- Tapping is easy. Any lick that includes tapping is automatically not impressive.

- The only way of playing an arpeggio is sweep picking.

- Sweep/economy picking is cheating (from Al Di Meola, no less).

- Playing with a ton of tension is good, because it strengthens your arm and increases endurance.

you shouldn't learn proper technique. Just play what feels comfortable, even if it does result in some kind of injury that can stop your playing days forever.

I already inlcuded the one about playing arpeggio's.

Here are a few:

- WRONG.

- Kirk Hammett is the best

- John Petrucci is the fastest

- The fastest guitarist can only play 2 nps (I asked my friend how many nps he thinks the fastest guitarist can play and he said 2 :haha)

Misconceptions eh?

- "Shred is emotionless noise that doesn't count as music. Greenday is more emotional than Shred."<----someone actually said this to me. I couldn't contain myself and I burst out laughing in his face.

- "Shred is boring because it's just fast, so it sucks." <----I hear this one quite often, on this site and otherwise.

misconceptions

-people are born with a natural ability to play music very well
-there is such a thing as playing music "very well"
-you need theory to play music because music that is atonal and arhythmic is not music and should be shunned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-theory ruins your playing
-music can contain emotion
-learning theory destroys your playing ablility

^ shred dosen't have emotion, the listener has emotion, which is triggered by his glands.

Are you sure you mean glands? I'm pretty sure it's the Telencephalon.
