Here's a current picture sorry bout the dark one I had really bad backlight on it
Distortion or a tube screamer if you already have a high gain amp
Noise gate
Maybe a wah but don't go all Kirk hammet on it
Possibly a reverb but Ive been using amp reverb since I started playing and haven't had a problem.
If you specify what kind of metal you'd like to play specifically, I can give you more guidance
Distortion or tubescreamer if you have a high gain amp
Noise gate
Possibly reverb and delay but not essential.
If you specify what type of metal, I can get a bit more specific

Which pop artists are okay to enjoy unironically?
all of them if you're not being a faggot about it
All of them except the millionaires. Don't believe pop anon's lies
This. If you go on Patrick Bateman type monologues, you're a loser. If you just say, "I like some Katy Perry songs," who cares?

Ohhs ahhhs + surf or classical music samples + 300% reverb + lyrics about fatherhood
Just yell into the mic and put the beach boys to half speed
Major key, simple four chord progressions, chorus with the I the IV and the V, stepwise melody, harmonies in thirds, lots of reverb on the vocals, maybe do the syllable juggling thing, use sampled break beats, warm synth sounds and some samples of people or animals or anything nostalgic sounding.

Sorry, buttercup, I didn't mean to denounce your special snowflake status. I'm sure there are plenty of 20-something slightly overweight girls that would love to comfort you, though.
Replace jazz with classical and that makes sense.

What's the psychology of music?

When you hear different songs saying the below in the lyrics how are they interpreted? Is it directed towards the listener or is it just telling a story?

>"I am the best around"
>"He is the best around"
>"You're the best around"

Wouldn't the egocentric narcissistic public interpret all 3 different lines of lyrics as referring to themselves? The first line is for a person putting themselves in the shoes of the singer. The second line is for a person who views the world as surrounding them as they listen to a story told between two or more different people. The third line is a direct ego boost, for the dumbest of narcissists.

When we look at it, rap songs are replete with this ego stroking bullshit which makes manchildren feel cool and badass by hearing these gratifying words shooting straight into their head from their iPads.

But it's only genres like Country music which focus on sad and depressing aspects, the more real aspects of human life in the lyrics.

The fact we have so many people listening to ego stroking music is sickening, it reveals the inner workings of the minds of the people walking around the street. We now have gyms full of people working out to booming music with lyrics like "Damn girl look at that body, I WORK OUT". This is little more than narcissism induced psychosis.

yknow just cuz you use words like aspect and ego, doesnt make you better than us, college boy
Who gives a fuck about the lyrics, the real interesting language in music is the harmony and rhythm. Shit thread OP

Let's play a game where we layer our music on each others. Post Vocaroo links, and I'll layer it into a song.

I'll start: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0x5w4rosxRX

There's certainly a risk it will all become too noisy. While I agree with your general sentiment, I don't think we need rules currently as very few people are actually participating. I will try to post merged songs as often as possible (รก la "IDEA 2"), but I don't think it is a prerequisite for someones track to be added that every previous track has been added.

If people will enjoy this thread we should work out a better system, but for now I think we're better off having lots of freedom - making it easy to participate.
would be helpful if you actually tuned your guitar lad

Do whatever you want with this i guess
Here's a simple bassline to go with it.
Good luck mixing the layers once you'll get more than 3.
Would also be useful to give us the bpm or a clicktrack.
Did a (bad) "mastering" on this
