sorry for making one too many threads on this forum but I noticed not only a lack of Texan musicians making threads I also didn't see a specific thread regarding them post what kind of music you play and what area of Texas you hail from. Me I'm from League City and I play old metal all the way to experimental.

Longview, and I play ... anything I like? I'd say metal, rock, metal punk, progressive rock. Me and my other Texan friend (He's orig from Wyoming, I think) came up with this

http://www.lithiumstar.com/Artists.html

it's not finished yet. The vox have to be recorded, plus this is just a demo (check out the About Us page xD ). I actually didn't have a part in the recording, but I came up with a lot of the rhythm lines, and his dad's friend's band helped with the drums and bass and leads and stuff.

You know you're a guitar player when you would rather use the internet to look at pictures of guitars than spread eagled chicks.

Texan guitarists UNITE!

I recon if we all plug our guitars in at exactly the right second on the exact same day and all play the exact same notes all at once as loud as we possibly can.......nothing will happen

Wow, it seems Texas has a few thrash fans. I wish I could move to Texas instead of Louisiana.

You guys are lucky. The music scene in Louisiana is poser screamo/ metalcore.

west side of fort worth here. i play mostly old stuff like def leppard or van halen, but i dabble in blues and jazz.

pm me if u wanna jam.
In speed versus emotional playing, i think of an M16 versus an M24. You can have 650 rounds per minute, or one round, one kill. Both should be in your arsenal.
