As a musically illiterate 23 year old, what's the best way to learn how to play a guitar.
with your hands and a guitar
Option 1: Don't bother. The world already has a surplus of guitarists who have no idea what they're doing (i.e, most of them). Learn a useful instrument instead.

Option 2: if it's really important to you to learn it use justinguitar, but if you're not going to practice at least 10 hours a week, go back to option 1.

listen to everything and just brute force playing it
get a time machine and go back 10 years and start then
Learn the basic and intermediate techniques and then do ear training and learn how to play with records. Improvise, learn what they play by ear, and add your own parts like you were part of the band.

I think it's weird that Kanye keeps doing this
Going on and on about "Reworking" albums up to the very last minute. I mean surely the label had to have heard the final project with artwork and marketing at least a couple weeks ago.

This things has been in the bag and all the album title crap has been a ruse.
that is unless he releases it under his own label.

Definitely got that vibe from the second album, did you know that two of the members dad was in TSOL lol
No I didn't actually, that's funny
Check out these guys, this album always felt like a slightly more serious version of FIDLAR's debut. Great melodies, crazy energy and it gets LOUD. Skip the first song though, it kind of sucks.
The chart he's referencing doesn't even have any k-pop on it, except arguably Yukari, which is hardly the kind of k-pop you'd see being discussed in the general.

I love that scratch and sniff album art.

Do people really like daydream nation more than sister? Sister is GOAT.

How come literally every time he changes his mind he ends up with a worse opinion?

I'm sure there's more examples but these are just the ones I could find.

it's insight for future reference. anyway, that would all be fine if he actually just focused on the emotional impact of the music. instead, he makes a terrible embarrassing attempt at seeming somewhat knowledgeable about the actual musicology of jazz, misleading many people in the process. it's downright harmful.

and don't think i don't totally agree with him, i do. i get into fights on here all the time with people who don't think kurt cobain was a great guitarist just because he had bad technique. he was an amazing guitarist.

the point is that he claims to be something and actively tries to be it while just seeming pretentious and knowledgeable. the writer of that jazz article i linked really summed it up the best: "Scaruffi uses technical terminology the way my seven-year-old daughter uses big words she doesn’t really understand; she throws them in there with more hope than certainty, because she wants to sound more grown-up. In her, it’s cute and I love it. In a grown man pretending to have things to say about music, I find it embarrassing."

If noise made by people like Merzbow is art, can it be argued that your television or radio produce art when tuned to static?

Listen to the monitor first, then the airing of grievances. You'll really only be able to appreciate their two latest if you're a fan.
Where is this show happening?
Providence. Don't know if it's a one-off show or if they're touring together.
Oh shi

They're starting in NYC, which makes sense.
Might go, but I saw TA a while back in Brooklyn and the crowd was insufferable
Yo for real.

- Include correct format (artist / band, title of release, year of release, cover art, short description, YouTube sample, link)
- Send thanks if you have downloaded something to let them know they did a good thing
- Avoid sharing/requesting things that are already on the archive
- Soulseek/rutracker are your friends, too - just don't argue in this thread about it


I have a request! Did I...
- Check the archive for a live link before requesting?
- Share something first?

OK, I thought they were one in the same
How about no
B-but, that album is literally on the first result googling "shora malval download", the ones I requested I couldn't find anywhere after a whole 10 minutes of googling
I thought share thread were about sharing and discussing music, there's the full album on youtube so why would that post be hilarious to anyone it's beyond me
love this, thank you
