What does UG prefer? This question is not only confined to guitar but can also stretch to vocals and other instruments. I ask this because in
the "screaming" thread , most people said they liked it more because it was more difficult than singing( which I dont agree with) but they didn't really say it sounded better.

Music.

I love The Offspring. And they're the powerchords emperors.

I'll confine this to guitar, because it's kinda what I do. I prefer music to technical difficulty, but I would rather hear them both incorporated together.
#4
Liking technically difficult music just because it's technical is kinda silly.

Music by far. You can have great music without very much technical difficulty. But you can have technical difficulty without it being great music.
#7
Music of course. Yea sure blink 182 songs are butt easy to play, but you have to admit some of their songs are catchy. But I'm not really huge fan, it's just the first band that came to my mind.

Music is much better than technical difficulty. For me Jack White comes to mind. The guy writes some great songs which are nice and easy but then again he has a great grasp of theory. Everything just flows. Then you have your blues players. They are technically great but they make their guitar sing sweet love songs followed by tears of a hard luck life and thats just through their playing not even included the down on your luck lyrics. Buddy Guy = Greatness.

True true.

I notice that I've been using the word "retarded" more and more every day on here... That says something about the people here.

I like whatever sounds good to me, whether it be technical or not makes no difference to me.

i don't listen to technical music unless it's musical.


All music is music. No matter how atonal, or arrythmic it is. If you recorded your self sneezing and looped it for an hour it can be music to some one, just like if you took a shit it might be beautiful to someone. There are just things that are agreeable to your ears and things that are not.

Either 4chan influence IRL or your vocabulary skills are degenerating.

This makes no sense. Buddy Guy and Jack White are both great. Neither are anywhere near what I would call "technical". Knowing theory is not the same as having "technical" music. I know theory (kinda), my music is not technical at all.

I've been doing this sort of thing too, lately. I really can't tell if I'm being ironic* or not anymore.

That's so ironic that you don't know whether or not you are using ironic in the correct form. Oh the irony!
#32
Somebody can be as technical as all getout and not have a good ear for music.

However a lot of technically gifted musicians have a good ear for music, and you can't discriminate just because someone has great technique and wants to use it.

This thread is so biased. Like, c'mon, the two options in the poll being "music" and "technicality"? You might as well put in "Hard to play music" vs "good music".
#38
Sound of music, **** technicality. If a band can play well it doesn't help them if they make shitty music.
