Hi. Can someone tell me which guitars are real 24 fret guitars and which are just 22 fret guitars with 2 extra frets added on?

Well...... TBH, I much prefer the dream theater intro. The Metallica intro guitars have terrible tone, imo, and it is not mixed well. Again, this is all my opinion. Also, Lars Ulrich has got to be one of the worst drummers in metal.

how am I trolling?

I posted an overwrought DT song that drags out. compared it to a more compact and tight Metallica song that's much more memorable.

trolling would be saying something like:
"nobody listens to dream theater except failed wanker musicians who can play noodly guitars in their bedrooms."

...or have ADD

yeah it's more of a case of the song being bad, than me having ADD. Symphony X makes long songs, but they're typically good throughout.

But really, that is off their more recent album. If DT has longer songs that are good, or at least soft/hard songs that are better, please feel free to link me.

Compact doesn't mean better. And you basically said "Listen to this song, it SUCKZORS!!! Now listen to this, it ROCKZORZZZZZ!!!!1 DERP DERP DERP!!!" That's fairly trollish.

Yeah it's too bad they can't write a song. Common result of people who are too busy wanking. I guess it's kind of expected, if you think about it.

Hmm? It's widely noted that Dream Theater can barely write songs. Most people in the metal community realize this, actually.

Actually, I misread what you had said, I thought it was something along the lines of "they're too busy fapping to write good music." I deleted the post, although your last sentence makes me think you are quite narrow minded. Music's quality, and one's taste in music, is all completely subjective. Saying someone has inferior taste in something that is impossible to quantify is the "I'm trying to sound smart" equivalent of "No, YOU SUCK!"

Nah, I figured you reported me because you disagreed with my taste in music. So I thought "oh, he wants to be elitist" and said what I said.

if you think DT are excellent musicians, than it's a safe bet that you think
michael angelo batio is one of the better guitarists out there.

Yeah it's hilarious how often people say that. Some have said Vai can be a douche, but he seemed like a really cool, mellow guy from what I've seen in interviews. I'd say Satch would be the best, out of the hyped guitarists, you know, Gilbert, Ynwie, Vai, Satriani, etc.

That would be songwriting. You should probably learn the difference.

And just because you don't like it, doesn't mean everyone should agree. It's called personal taste.

Alright fine. His technique isn't terrible, it's just just that he thinks playing mediocre metal faster than usual is impressive.

And we know you don't like him, you've already made that clear. Why are you re-iterating the same thing again?

Yes, that explains why you brought it up again perfectly. Excellent metephor btw, matched the situation well...

His fans like his music. Why do you care if they do?

You mentioned how DT are excellent, so I referenced him as a failed guitarist that you'd probably like. You know, as a response for you thinking DT are an excellent band.

...so, again. Why do you keep bringing up the fact that you don't like MAB? You keep saying it as if it holds some sort of meaning, as if I should recoil in horror as your opinion forces me to have a sudden revelation.

You may notice, I have not. Possibly because your opinion means nothing to me, nor anyone else.

He's referenced in a derogatory sense. The same way one would bring up Nickelback or whoever else, you know.

And? Metallica are referenced in the same way, due to lack of originality, having Lars as a drummer, and kirk's over use of wah and descending pentatonic. Yet you seem to like them.
