Saw that on MTV last night and just tought that it was pretty awesome.
Nice song plus awesome guitar solo at the end.

I was pretty surprised when I saw it.


PS. I bet this has "old" potential but I just wanted to share it.


EDIT:
This thread became lulz.
It was late at night and I was watching MTV trying to fall asleep.
That came on and I was like " l0lz f41l 4t 51ng1|\|9" but the song was quite relaxing. Then when I was just about to fall asleep (not sure if it was boredom or tiredness) that solo came on. At that point, my judgement was pretty bad but I was still surpirsed that they actualy did a pretty long solo which didn't suck balls. I compared it to that Gymclass Heroes song with the dreadful solo... And you must agree that the NERD solo is much better.

I can't really explain why I wrote " Bringing back the guitar solo..." as the thread title.
I made it in the morning when I woke up for school and remembered the song.
It's a quite ridiculous title. Anyone that said that the solo was never gone is comletly correct haha. I listen to so much instrumental music that has been made recently but I for some reason
epic failed and tought that it's gone.

I'm never doing threads in the morning again

/phail rant

Whem Michael Jordan retired, he tried to play again in some game about 4 years ago, I can't remember which one, and he was being forceful about it, syaing, "I'm Michael Jordan, let me play!" Then security escorted him out.

The guitar solo needs to follow suit.
It's stuck around long enough, has become a pain in the ass and needs to be asked to leave.
Poor advice.

Wasn't too bad. Repetitive as though

This is the thread where we pretend that we're too good for guitar solos or pretend that not all music is scale wankage...of f*cking course it is
#24
the greatest guitar solo of all time could only be 10 seconds long. that **** sounds unpleasant like someone practicing without a metronome
#25
somewhat boring and repetitive, but i could imagine being pleasantly suprised if this just came on mtv.

And why all the hate for guitar solos?

The guitar solo never left. Granted I used to be one of those "I JUST DISCOVERED 80'S METAL! NEW METAL SUCKS! NEEDS MOAR GUITAR SOLO!" fags, I've learnt the error of my ways. There are still plenty of songs with solo's. Thousands infact.

That solo was almost as bad as Fred Durst'. That's saying something.

The solo had a few good places, but, overall, it was very meh.

If by bringing back guitar solos into the mainstream, we're compensating actually making good solos, I'm completely against it. There's no need to exploit an instrument that gave us the Comfortably Numb solo. Guys, rant rant rant rant.

It was an over long, pentatonic wanked, tremelo picked bit of wahsturbation, love it!

Still, I've never mourned the loss of the guitar solo, never went away in the Metal world.

well, some guitar solos just aren't appropriate for the song, like that one. it was appropriate for about 20 seconds, then it was excessive. a long guitar solo in a Pantera song, perfectly acceptable, cuz they build up to it, this one they dont build up to it and its just petatonic hammer-ons and pull-offs. alot of songs have like a 10 or 15 second guitar solo that matches the vocal line or something, which is often the best route, cuz a badass guitar solo isn't required in every song.

but i dont think the guitar solo ever went away, in fact it seems to me its just getting more and more technical, but i guess it depends what u listen to.
