How long did it take you to get good at whatever genre you play? Because to me it seems like this:

Metal: takes the longest to play decently because of the technical stuff
Blues: catches on quick, but takes a while to master
Jazz: doesn't really matter. You can make up your own chords and all that **** but seriously, it's all improv so it takes a little while
punk: not very long at all
pop: you don't even have to be plugged in to play it well

Post your thoughts on how long it takes to play at each stage in each genre.

what the **** are you smoking?
Jazz make up your own chords? damn you really don't know ****

To play all genres with great ability it takes awhile.

also look closely at the pic you posted, you can see a cable coming out of his guitar. My guess is its a wireless system. Super FAIL

I agree with pretty much everything you said. Anywho, I want to stab that Jonas guy in the eye with a screwdriver for even touching that GT SG...

Edit:Jazz, Classical, and metal are probably some of the hardest Genre's cause in each you have to know a lot of theory and technique.

If you read my post, I said after saying you make up your own chords for jazz, followed by saying it's mainly improv, which is difficult. Plus, dude on the right's guitar isn't plugged in. Look at it.


EDIT: I can't tell about dude on the left with the SG that's way too cool for him.

Yes it is, look at it. It's a wireless system with one of those L jacks instead of a straight one.

I've played jazz piano for, well we'll just say decades. Based on your comment regarding the genre, I'm convinced you have no clue what you're talking about.

*Sees James Hetfield with an Explorer*



Blues and Jazz are more of the improv-emotional playing type styles, the only way you get good at it is by being familiar enough with it. Metal is just practice-practice-practice, it doesn't click, it just takes time. Punk I can't really speak for because I don't play it. Pop.. well.. yeah.

I agree with the first guy: what are you smoking?

I want to move to whatever fantasy world you live in where metal is definitively "technical". Look at bands like Korn and Limp Bizkit. Not exactly musical mastery.

I'm talking real metal. Not KoRn.
#29
sub-genres mates! sub-genres..

nu metal - pretty easy...might be easier then punk (you dont need to play fast and use downpicking)
heavy metal - not that hard
thrash metal - can get a pain in the ass if your using downpicking or you play lead
proggresive metal - uff...

etc..

blues is pretty simple but...you need lots of feeling...you totally fail without emotion

jazz is pretty hard..i would say the hardest when it comes to leads..
thrash metal is (for me) the hardest for rhythm

is it wrong that i didn't get the mime reference to pop?

when you said "pop: you don't even have to be plugged in" i thought "yeah greenday have a few acoustic songs, for example"
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

OP your opinion is pure fail. why even start such a stupid thread like this if you dont know what you're on about... jazz is way harder than metal... way more technical too. go die in a fire thx

making up your own chords for jazz............wtf jazz uses the most musical theory and you can`t improv without knowing some theroy.

my suggestion learn your theory then you can learn most genre`s pretty damn quick.

it`s called being a musician.
