I play (insert genre), what amp?
I play (insert genre), what guitar?

I say, to hell with that. Play what sounds good. Play what feels right. Rock the hell out. Who's with me?

I'm not.

Stereotypes help me break down the world in understandable chunks.

Damn, TS you're right.

This a serious problem that needs to be solved right now. Screw the BP oil spill, this shit needs attention.

That's pretty dumb, people use those "stereotypes" to get the gear that would best fit their genre. I want to get an amp that's good for what I'm playing if I'm spending hundreds - thousands of dollars on one.

Even if we pretend they actually are stereotypes and not advice to help somene get a certain distinctive tone, they're not exactly the most harmful stereotypes I can think of.

LOL ok, fine there is bigger things going on. I concur. As an American, I feel that the spill is a terrible thing. They are ruining many peoples lives/livelyhood. In a region that lost most of what it had 5 years ago, this is just a smack in the face.

NOT the point.

Point is, we sit here and bicker that music isn't the same as it used to be, yet we all figure into the stereotypes of, "I play this, SO I need this."

Why can't we all just call ourselves guitar players instead of, "I play metalcore, I play this-core, I play blues, etc"

I would think that If we want change, we need to ask for it collectively. Music is the #1 conveyor of that. In the past, the innovators like Harrison & Hendrix & Gilmour said, fuc* that, I want to do this, with this gear, & I'm going to." Nowadays it's like, I wannna make this sound, so I NEED this." Internet helps/worsens the situation. Thoughts?

Oh i'm sure it'd be more than possible. Problem is it will probably be labeled something something rediculous like 12stringricplayedthroughfendertweedcore.

I'd be happy if we got that much. Half the people in EG just say they want a new guitar and expect us to know their pricerange, desires from the guitar, musical tastes and all that.

That's not a stereotype. People ask those questions because certain rigs are good for certain genres of music. They are trying to get the best sound possible.

Oh god, more anti-genre bullshit? Fuck off. Genres are descriptions, not stereotypes. Saying "I play metalcore" is an attempt to be more specific than "I make noises, I dunno".

And I've never met anyone who thought "I play this, so I need this". All the guitar players I've spoken to have tried lots of equipment and chosen the one that they're most happy with, the only people who do what you're describing, as far as I can tell, are new guitarists looking for advice from people more knowledgable.

Go away.

Er... we do? Not much bickering needed, of course it's not the same as it used to be.

Most people do this. Nobody introduces themselves by saying "I'm a blues guitarist". The only scenario in which people give information like that is because they want people to recommend them gear that has been tried and tested to be most beneficial for their style of playing.

I think that accurately describes my music.


Guys is there any specific gear I need to make noises?
hlp plz

Nothing like a good blog at 4am.

Seriously though, certain gear is the BEST for certain sounds. Yeah I can get a nice clean off of some br00tuhl gtar...but if I'm playing country*, then I want the BEST clean possible.

1.) Most people I talk to say that music nowadays is crap. Except the teens.

2.) Yes. Most people start a thread saying, I play blues/hard rock/metal/crabcore/jazz/w/e

I guess I'm talking about the human condition more so than the "community".

Then again, I guess all of you have proved my point. Thanks.

You need various gear and whatnot. Play what sounds good.

Now imagine this exchange being repeated in every thread in the gear forums, and you'll see why people say "I'm a blues guitarist".

1) Only stupid people say that.
2) That's because they know it's a good way to ask for a certain sound. E.g. If I told you I was playing classic rock, surely you would recommend a nice tube amp? AC30 or something? It's just helping them get the tone they already want. Most people that have to ask those kinds of questions haven't advanced enough to be trialling a ton of gear and probably wouldn't have as refined an ear anyway.

What's the problem, did someone give you shit for your Spider?

Harrison, Hendrix, and Gilmour also knew the exact sounds they were going for and used the equipment best suited to get them there. It's not like they were playing on just anything.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
