No, they're still making music. Anyone can make music. But I wouldn't really call them a "musician". A toddler can play a sequence of notes on a piano, but that doesn't make them a musician.

I'm not trying, I really think that.


1) you're in the part of the site where most people don't play anymore.
2) most of the shit that people that still play metal and rock here think is cool, I find repugnant and abhorrent.

Let me rephrase.

So you're saying people who make music as a career aren't really musicians if they don't know theory?

He said BASIC. That word's important, JG.

1. I think that box shapes/scales/modes are a waste of time.
2. I can't stand most music from the '90s.
3. I dislike it when people who say Metal is all about shredding/sweeping/powerchords.
4. I tend to be annoyed at people who don't like Progressive music, except my fiance ('cause she gets a double standard; fuck the rest of you).
5. I am a table.

5. I am rhythmically dyslexic. Or maybe that's my own dumbassery. I can't tell which.
4. I quite literally am completely unable to sing, after attempting to learn for the past year.
3. I have a phobia of playing fugues.
2. I have such awful posture when I play viola that I make judges/teachers violently puke.
1. I hate the Beatles simply because they're British. Although, that's more along the lines of racism than music...

New Confession! I do not like newer metal/metal-core/death-core all that crap but last night I went to see Volbeat and their opener was All that Remains, was pleasantly surprised at how good ATR was, Volbeat was amazing live if anyone was wondering.

1. I got started playing guitar because I got good at guitar hero first
2. I discovered far too many musicians/bands through guitar hero/rock band
3. I actually like Taylor Swift
4. I don't understand how to use open tunings. I tried using Open C and it just confuses the hell out of me
5. I am not actually a better drummer than Lars Ulrich

5) I'm not nearly as good as I should be for playing for six years.
4) I tend to judge people by what gear they use. That being said I almost refuse to play with anyone using a Line6 Spider half stack.
3) I think people need to stop playing guitar and start playing bass and drums. And more importantly playing band instruments.
2) I marvel at the skill of shred guitar but I kind of hate listening to it.
1) I think it's really ****ed up that there's almost no such thing as a band in country music. By which I mean it's almost always "Tim McGraw" or "Jason Aldean" or "Porter Wagner". It really bothers me. Yea, there's Lady Antebellum and The Band Perry but that's about it. I don't think those people would be where they are without the other musicians that they play with. Lord knows they didn't write EVERY instrument involved in a song and more than likely someone else did, ergo they should get credit that's not just in the liner notes of a CD. It's half the reason why I can't stand country music.

Wrst_EDIT_Evr: In number 3 I forgot the operative word "Start".

I so agree. I want to respect country artists, as what they do does take some genuine talent, at least more musical talent than your average pop star, but then they treat themselves like pop stars by only having their own name on the music. I could be mistaken, but I think most country artists do deal with a consistent band that works on each album and then goes out on tour with them (rather than a pop artist where the music could be written by anybody, and the a live band is hired to recreate it), but even if that's not the case, why isn't it?

The Joshua Garcias is a band from that Joshua Garcia jackass. I don't even know why he gets all this praise, he's not even funny.
