Hey everyone, been lurking here for a number of months now, but only just signed up. 20 years old, been playing guitar now for about 8 months, played saxophone for several years prior. Alas, came to find there was little to no overlap between the two (not that I had any reason to expect there was) but the learning curve is a drag.

Primary music interests are the likes of AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, any Dio era Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Rush, Megadeth, among several others. Most people I know would classify me as a bit of a classic rock fanboy, and are not in the wrong in doing so; lately i've been getting more exposure to metal/vintage thrash, however, and have expanded tastes as such.

Once again, hi.

listen to yoduh you must. wise words he speaks. eat you The Pit will.
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.

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.
