wat about b and d chord

only one I'd allow is F#m

So I'm thinking that the government mandate that anyone making music with physical instruments politely stops and focuses on making electronic music to stop holding us all back. Agree or disagree?

Because idiots push radom buttons on computers and think it's music, and get praised as musicians. Idiots push random buttons an instrument and get made fun of and make life easier for the rest of us.

Guitars can make a shit load of sounds. They've moved with the times and are totally relevant, and rock is still one of, it not the most profitable genres around.






See, loads of cool shit.

As someone who's tried both, I can say that making good electronic music is a great deal more difficult than making good guitar-based music.

Yeah I agree. I used to be one of those "lol it's just pushing a button" people (when I was going through my classic rock phase >_> ) but recently I've been teaching myself to use/program synths and damn it's heavy reading.

Nah. You need to spend big to get decent sounds out of a computer. The programs alone will cost hundreds. Of course pirating solves that, but if you want a midi controller, synth, PC/laptop, monitoring, heaphones etc it will cost a load still.

But you don't get the same tone whatsoever. Computers can only do so much, but with an actual physical instrument, tone can vary greatly depending on how you choose to play it.

Besides, viola and violin are way more fun to play in person than to f**k around with on a computer.

For sure. I mean, yeah, you can just use presets or just piece a track together from prefab loops but that's the electronic equivalent of covering Stairway.

Lol what, are you saying that physical intruments produce a greater variety of sound than computers?

I find most electronic music boring pretty much because it's not something I can go and learn to play. I hear a cool piano, guitar, bass, drum section of a song and I want to go learn it. With electronic music there isn't any of that.

I have no real interest in writing my own music so that's a big part of it. I just like playing other's stuff. It's so gratifying once you master a really difficult song, especially on piano for me.

Plus, then you get to show off.


I guess I love the physical aspect of playing music a lot.

Yep. After starting on my study on the subject of orchestration, I realized just how many colors of tone are available just with a few changes in where the melody and harmony are played. It takes way more talent to know how to utilize all of it (in addition to making it blend seamlessly) than producing music with a computer, in my humble opinion.

You could always learn to play electronic music, it's just a bit more work programming the right sounds . Also depending on what we mean by electronic music I guess.

And of course it's probably a personal thing, but hooking up a keyboard/controller to create the sounds makes it fairly tangible.

I dunno, I'd say it's a talent in it's own right. There are some amazing digital artists.

Squarepusher, Aphex Twin, Venetian Snares etc.

That's not really the same at all. It's like figuring out a song and putting it into Guitar Pro (I know it's much much much more involved than that.)

It doesn't actually take much physical music ability. I can figure out a song on the piano fairly quickly. Being able to actually play it the right way is the hard part, and I get much more satisfaction out of that.


I'm not trying to say that the act of writing electronic music is easy.

Point taken. I don't really know anything about it and my jackass-ish nature always assumes that I'm right.

I do very much enjoy Squarepusher though.

Play around for a few hours with any respectable synth and your humble opinion might change. Have you tried making proper electronic music? And I don't mean using synth presets in some other track.

Yes, but you can't have a jam session with electronic music, unless you're using a keyboard in which case you're playing an instrument.

Besides, one of the things I don't like about electronic music is how "perfect" it sounds. Every note is spot on, every beat is perfectly in time. The lack of perfection in non-electronic music is endearing to me.
