Haha, yeah, when's the last time you saw any tech death guitarist jumping around on stage and headbanging? Tech death is one of the hardest (if not THE hardest) forms of music to play. It requires a ton of concentration. I was reading something Karl posted on the Nilechat.net forums saying that he has to position himself in a certain manner when he plays some of the legato riffs on Lashed To The Slave Stick because he's screwed up his back doing it before. Hell, that song doesn't even have a solo.

I just found these video's on Google and thought you guys might enjoy them. How on earth do you learn to play and sing like that at the same time?!

Didn't we already come to the conclusion that mohammed didn't have many friends as a child?

If I locked myself in a room for 3 months with a guitar I STILL wouldnt be able to do that.

Noob. Give me 3 months with nothing else to do and I would be able to play anything.

Well, when people stay in a room for 3 months without sleep/food/drink etc., they tend to die.

I know, 'twas sarcasm my good man.

But he does kick quite a bit of ass. I'm still trying to play Opeth while singing.. It looks like such a long road to necrophagist.

That guitar style isn't as difficult as all of you are exclaiming or believe it is. The thing that gets me about Mohammed is that he's able to play to such close perfection on guitar while doing the vocal work at the same time, now thats awesome. Those two aspects combined in his play are what is so cool about the music. Otherwise all it is, is him keeping his fingers really busy throughout the songs.

Exactly.

But keep in mind that he has quite a few riffs and variations of those to play.

I'm just trying to get it correct, Its not just a regular gutteral thing, the notes are actually sustained so its like playing two things at once, your guitar and your voice, I could do gutterals all day long.. I'm about | | far from playing and singing cold hate, warm blood, but Opeth are kinda tricky, at least the songs I've been trying, like Serenity Painted Death and stuff.
#103
either learn to do the vocals to the point that you don't need to think about them or learn the guitar parts that way.

get what im saying? learn to do the other without concentrating on it so you can focus on the other.

I know them both, but you dont really learn opeth to the point where it requires no concentration, its not exactly 3 chord punk, yanno?

Mostly its just remembering where the lyrics go and the vocal melodies etc, like I said, they arent gutterals, so its not just grunt grunt grunt.
#105
yeah, ive tried some opeth,it was'nt easy.

however, masters apprentice is quite easy to sing and play at the same time.

Just for the record, there are 2 guitarists in this band, and they are both amazing, they play basically the same all the time, only harmonized.

Was just Mohammed for the first album though, now they have two guitarists to basically double the ownage.

On a side note: They use ENGL and Peavey, both of which I am a proud owner \m/ I dailed in a perfect necrophagist tone yesterday, it was quite awesome.

As amazing as Necrophagist is, and although they're one of my favorite bands of all time, Steve Vai could kick his ass in guitar.

At this point I don't honestly believe so. Anyone that technically good, anyone that quick and can do it whilst singing seriously kicks my ass. THAT is why muhammed isnt just medicore or good- that is why he is GREAT.
