K so we all know that Dave Grohl is the greatest artist to ever live. But i need you help. On the song " Vile" that he did himself for some biography, Dave pretty much makes sounds that are godlike. Sounds i wanna tab. Only trouble is i have no idea what tuning he uses, if one of you fellow fans could help me it would be much appreciated. and yes Tab Talk did ****ing nothing.

the greatest song ever.

And of course, what was your favorite. Foo, nirvana, probots, QOTSA? Of course that is before you heard this song. This is your new favorite now.

Meh.

Them Crooked Vultures is the best thing he's ever done, and that's only because John Paul Jones is a living legend.

Queens and TCV are the only projects I like him in. A little Nirvana too I guess.

Them Crooked Vultures are the best he's done. Nirvana was good, Joey's a better fit for QotSA, and Foo Fighters have always been meh. That's not to disrespect him, he's an awesome Bonham influenced drummer with a decent voice, I can't quite say he's the greatest musician of all time for that though.

^After seeing TCV live, I gotta say he is an immense bassist. At his age too, damn. Just damn.

I always thought Nirvana was awesome and Foo Fighters as well the problem is that I wouldnt say this is the best thing he has done is because this is a supergroup and not really the focus is on dave really

nirvana is the best band out of all of them, i mean cmon the melodies are just so catchy and amazing, the lyrics of kurt cobain were always a stand out.. Foo fighters i love too but i think F.F is like the little brother of nirvana, their music is brilliant specially they old stuff like There is nothing left to lose, but lets face it dave grohl was not always the best lyricist. Them crooked vultures are impressive too just nirvana was still the best out of all of them

I hate to say it, but Dave Grohl is massively over-rated. As a guitarist, he's nothing special, in fact his guitar playing is extremely basic. He basically hold his guitar low and holds down a few power chords and then hits the strings as hard as he can with his right hand.

He can't do solos, he can't play any interesting riffs....I don't get why people think he's any good on guitar.

And he's not that great a vocalist either.

Sure, he plays with heart, but he doesn't have much core musical ability or talent. He may be POPULAR, but POPULAR doesn't equal good musician.

I don't hate the guy, he is a cool guy and stuff, but a good singer and guitarist he is not!

I feel he is the quintessential pop-rocker. And I mean that in the best possible way. I mean lets face it, his songs are pop songs, and they're very good pop songs. They just happen to have a hard-ish rock edge to them.

And I love Foo Fighters precisely because of that.

As far as his drumming goes, I can take it or leave it. I loved it on Songs For the Deaf and it's pretty good on Them Crooked Vultures but his work with Nirvana never stood out to me.
This isn't coincidence
there's no such

Anything Dave does I like. He's a god. I admire him.

Nirvana. Foos. QOTSA. Probot. TCV. All great.
Favorite would be foo fighters though

He's an awesome drummer for Queens'. Joey plays too fast :q

Stacked Actors, Walking a Line and the Caligula beat are some of his masterpieces IMO.

I think "good guitarist" is a relative term. For me a good guitarist can be somebody who plays simple riffs but is able to reach people through their music. Technicallity =/= Musicallity.

I don't think Dave's overrated. What I like about him is he does so many things, yet they all sound different and have their own sound/feeling to them. Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Them Crooked Vultures, Probot, etc. really sound nothing like each other. So I at least give the guy credit for that. As for not being able to do interesting riffs and things like that-I don't think so.

Probot had some interesting riffs, and he proved he can make non-pop sounding songs that are still good quality. Not only that considering such a mainstream, poppy rockstar, who was a part of the grunge movement can put out a metal album just as good as the majority of metal bands says a lot I think.

He's not a musical genius-and I don't think he's anything amazing. But he puts out a lot of solid material, and puts his heart into what he does. It's the later part why I think people like him so much.

As a side note-the guy has some major balls. Who the hell says no to Paul McCartney?

With all do respect to Dave Grohl i think he is awesome. In my opinion anything he seems to do, just turns out to be amazing... like he is some god, meant to do it. I totally love Foo Fighters, they're probably one of my fav bands, and when i first heard Them Crooked Vultures, i was amazed again. To be able to play in different bands/side projects and still get the credit he does is outstanding. Also hearing Them Crooked Vultures, it had seemed that it was something different, and every time he produces like a new album as such they have a mixture of different sounds of different qualities, in which is what i like.
