does anyone else agree that Zakk Wylde used to be awesome (i.e Ozzy, Pride & Glory) until about 1999 when BLS started, although i really like the Mafia album and some other Black Label Songs, anyway does anyone find his playing really tasteless compared to his earlier playing, i mean i still see him as a good guitarist but some of his improvisation is really boring these days..

Mafia has some decent riffs, and some alright soloing, its better than all the other Black Label Albums though

Yeah I know everybody has his own taste in music and blah blah blah, but the fact that you like Mafia better than his other work with BLS either means that a) You're deaf or b) you haven't listened to anything else.

I don't find BLS tasteless at all, in fact they were my favorite band for a long time.

Zakk Wylde is extremely overrated. He's a good guitarist, but everything he does is just boring now =\

Yeah, he totally forgot how to make repetitive pentatonics and pinch harmonics interesting.

Oh.

Wait.

His playing with Ozzy... meh IMO. Pride & Glory however was awesome. I wish he'd just stick to country rock tbh...


Pride and Glory is so underrated!

Zakk Wylde annoys the **** out of me. I can stand some Black Label Society songs, but god they get so ****ing repetitive. I mean, the Stillborn riff is just this:

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-2-2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2-2-----2-2-2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2-2------2-2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2-|



with some random pinch harmonics. How ****ing uncreative can you get?

Honestly.

TS, I wasn't trying to be a twat, but people give Zakk a lot of crap when everybody knows he's awesome.

Shot To Hell was an awesome album. But as for his improvising he seems to be strugling with coming up with new licks while playing lately, so he just runs his hands up the fretboard or holds a long note and pulls a scary face at the crowd. I'm pretty sure he's subscribed to guitar world and he just takes a new pentatonic riff from there each month, and thats basicly how he structures his improvising.

Zakk has been playing the same solo in every song for a few years now. To be fair, he's fun to watch (saw Ozzy live about a year ago) and it's obvious he has skills and whatnot, but his playing has gotten really monotonous.
#22
I only liked that "In This River" song he did...otherwise I couldn't be arsed to listen to him. I just saw nothing I liked other than the one song.

I just watched those videos for the first time yesterday, hilarious stuff. He's so down to earth. Anyone else think he looks kinda like yngwie in those though?

About Zack Wylde, he's good but not my style of guitarist.
#25
You mean Zakk Wylde was good at one point?


Lies.


I used to enjoy some of his music. Then I got away from it for a while, moved on to other music. I came back, and I thought I was going to pass out from all of the fail coming out of the speakers.

that first video you posted was terrible, i can't say i've listened to much BLS, but if he plays that badly i never will, he's not playing so fast that it sound alright even, it's just crap

he probably is fine in the studio but i can't respect someone who improvises that badly unless their a god the rest of the time, and i don't quite see that there

Watching this, I ask "how the hell he do it?!" when I think about his career.

He seems so..... I don't know. It just doesn't seem like he should be a black metal icon.

It's what he calls pinch harmonics, cuz he's too kvlt for such technical terms.

Is that seriously what he calls them?
