Okay so theres one thing i've noticed about them, which i find quite weird.

So theres 2 guys playing guitar right? But there are no lead or rhythm, they both seem to play rhythm, and theres no bass... Wouldn't they rather have a bass and 1 guitar instead of having 2 guitars playing the exactly the same thing?

Im no fan of Jonas Brothers, but whenever my bro watches Disney Channel i get angry when i see them and feel like listening to some thrash.

But i would want some opinion about this, pros and cons about the way they are playing.
To me it just looks like they are playing guitars to be cool kinda. They never solo, they never make 2 different guitar tracks, they only play their ****ty power chords.

they don't need it, they're br00tal

Please dont start flaming the Jonas Brothers. I think they are the most important band to come out for the last 30 years. They will change everyones life.

My friend pointed out they have Truth drums, and he said they don't deserve 'em.
It's weird what people notice about them.

And you care because? Seriously, people are way too wrapped up in music they don't like. Why don't you just focus on the stuff you do like, and keep your mouth shut about the stuff you don't?

Piss off with your sense of entitlement. Emotion is subjective and being technically sound doesn't mean you're a good guitarist, since guitars are for music, and music is about entertainment, so if their three chords entertain people and your sweeps don't, they are better than you. Get over it.

Apparently one of them can play a mandolin. Respect to him for actually knowing what that is. I dont care about the others.

Who cares that they don't have a bass. They're a terrible band. In fact, they aren't really a band, they are a product to be sold and then discarded.

Honestly i doubt theyre plugged in

I saw them playing on some tv show once and I really don't think they were. But I wasn't really paying much attention to that because I was focused on the fact that it just didn't look like he was actually playing to me. It seemed off.

As far as bass goes they have other people there to play the instruments they don't find cool. But then the lead singer has a tendancy to play the tamborine?
If they're good for anything it's for making me laugh...

that's the deal with the 'business of music'. the business comes first for these kind of people.
stupid talentless Disney promoted music hacks with purity rings sell, and the youth of today is buying.

just be happy you know the difference, my friend.

lol. I actually hated them at first, but ended up liking them. They seem like nice guys, and have been in the music business since they were kids. To answer you question, they have one lead singer, then they have a guitar brother, then the youngest brother (cutest), sings some verses as well as plays the guitar usually. That's the Jonas Brothers. But they do have bass, and drums, prbly done by session musicians etc. Obviously, if u've seen camp rock, and u see them playing with no amps and no drums and bass, its not gonna make sense, but it's a movie. In real life though, they actually do have backup musicians doing ****. And ya, not every guitar player plays solos, lots of bands have numerous ppl playing guitar even if they don't need 2 guitarists.

I'm really sick of these 'child' musicians backed by Disney.

In my opinion, these Jonas Brothers and that Hannah Montana are a huge part of what's wrong with popular music today.

You guys don't really know this, but the Jonas Brothers are actually the real musicians that play for Dream Theater. When John Petrucci is out there "performing live", these guys are back stage playing the actual parts. The whole Disney thing is just a cover up and to avoid any suspicions about them and DT.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Thats why keep away from Popular Music :P

Darth_Qurashi: I agree with the fact that they seem like nice guys, i think they really smart, skipping drugs, alchohol and such (which they claim, and i don't care), but i just don't find their music worth all the fuzz about them.

actually in a way DT and the Jonas brothers are doing the same thing...marketing young kids with their music. DT wouldnt have any fanbase if they didnt play all the wanky **** adored by prepubescent teenagers
