Seriously guys... EVERYONE wants to play metal. It would be refreshing to see how many non-metal heads we have here.

Post what you think about this.


Edit: it seems that every NEW guitarist is starting with just metal.

Not really. Most of my school is dominated by pop punk/mainstream rap lovers. It'd be nice to meet some more metalheads.

I am a teen and I never want to play metal.
And why would this be a problem?

I'm 14, and I generally play "rock" music.
I do play some metal from time to time, as versatility is key.

No problem with that. I play classic rock though.


Not really a problem, it just would be nice to have some diversity.

It seems like every new guitarist is jumping on the metal bandwagon, and I'm afraid for the future of good old rock and roll.

I play blues, rock, and funk. And a little jazz and folk, lately. Though I still can't do jazz improvising well.

There is nothing wrong with some nice metal. I would say that your perception is due mostly to the admittedly high occurence of metalheads who are also tremendous nerds.
#12
I shit metal.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I'm playing metal right now. I was born in a mosh pit, and my mom was knocked up at an Alice Cooper concert. I'm also eating a sandwich made with goat meat and stuff. Because I'm kvlt.

Problem? Metal is the utmost intense, brutally energetic thing i could find. If you look in the right places, metal takes a lot of talent to play. Unless by "Metal" you're thinking of those shitty emo bands with all those kids in skinny jeans... then i agree, it's a problem.

The power metal fans?

Lolololololololol.

The only problem I see is the increase in kids wanting to play songs from crap bands like Arcade Fire or Souja Boy all the time.


Trust me, UG is probably the only place where there is a large metal community. If you go out in society it is either Hip Hop, Indie, or pop rock. You will hardly see a metal, blues, or jazz band on shit like MTV or any music program.


EDIT: Guys like you TS annoy me...

I can't really play anything metal (opening riff of "Run to the hills" but that's it). I enjoy playing rock and punk more, but hey if you bleed metal to each there own. It's tough being a guitarist when everyone at school is musically retarded. They think if you don't play uber-fast you suck.

I was correcting myself because I realized that it wasn't the best thing to say. Please STFU.

God I hate the pit sometimes....

Serious Answer:

All the older guitarists who influence these young kids the most are metalheads or classic rock lovers.

THEREFORE! the little kids become accustomed to this sort of music.

I love and play all music.
We've drained full confession booths, polluted drinking wells with our repentances, and then stood grinning with our arms around the shoulder of a rotting child.

If they want to play one thing only, you let them.

Or eat them.

You just described my life. I am the only metalhead in my grade. There was another one but he had to start being home-schooled because his mom hated one of his teachers...
(I could go on all day.)
It's kind of boring when all I get to hear is souja boy, low, and ay bay bay because it's all my friends like.
