My friend is trying to convince me that Weezer is harder to play than metal. He thinks this because he says "with Weezer, you have to play in rhythm and time. With metal, all you have to do is play really fast."

I think metal (Megadeth, Children of Bodom for example) is harder to play because you have to solo fast, and that takes more than playing playing simple chords for a whole song.

So Pit, whats your thought on this?

Don't you think it's obvious that he's just wrong and has no idea what he's talking about? Ugh.

Weezer aren't hard to play at all.

Actually the only hard thing I ever found in a Weezer song was the fast melody in "Surf Wax USA" and even that I got down in 15 mins.

Megadeth has not only fast riffs/solos but far more complex riffs than Weezer. And I suppose your friend hasn't played/listened to many Marty Friedman solos.

Plus, I've never heard a (professional) metal song that isn't in time...

He's a bassist if that makes a difference.

We were just messing around with our instruments at the time.

Your friend is an idiot. Except for jazz, all music has to be played in a set time and rhythm. He needs to listen more and talk less.
