HAHA, none of coldplays songs should get it then.

I myself believe it was just coincidental.

I mean, you have a chord progression.

and you have a simple melody over it.

Lawdy. So many slightly incorrect uses of the word "song". My music teacher would get an erection if he saw this article.

As much as I want to believe it was a coincidence, I am convinced that it was not. Coldplay simply thought they could get away with mild plagiarism because Satriani isn't very well known outside of the guitaring world.

It was the only task I would undertake...

which wasn't even necessarily intentional.

as much as I don't like either band, Satriani was making too big a deal out of the whole thing, IMO

Can't say i like either but Satriani is aimed at a certain group of people,while Coldplay is aimed at a more open audience.

Catchier is subjective. Maybe I fine Meshuggah more 'catchy' than Coldplay.

satch is a ****.

who wants to listen to a guy play a boring 20 minute solo. not me.

also i love how coldplay said that satchs song was unoriginal..which sort of implies their song is unoriginal as well.

Okay fair point

What I meant to get across was that its a very generic sterotype of instrumental guitarists.

If Satch aces anything its variety, but alas. Every man to his own

What I don't get about this is, if Coldplay say that a song that sounds just like one of theirs is unoriginal... then that means they are aware that they play unoriginal music

First of all, it's not like it was a big part of Satch's song. The melody was used once in his song. It wasn't like a main riff or anything. It's very possible that this was unintentional.

This whole thing kinda makes me scared to be a musician. If a small thing like this lands you in court, what chance do I have in 5 years when even LESS original riffs/melodies are available?
Chinese Democracy is a great album, people need to get over Slash.

Proud fan of Pop, Rap, Rock, and Metal.
#33
I hope Satriani got nothing, seeing as the same melody had been used three times before him.

Coldplay > Satriani, he can go die in a hole.

I hope that Joe Satriani got nothing from the lawsuit. I respect him as a musician and all that, I just thought the whole thing was ridiculous.


Oh, and I'm not ashamed to admit I'd rather listen to Coldplay any day than Joe Satriani.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.
