so i just started checking out a band called symphony x....amazing band...great guitarwork, great keyboard stuff, and pretty decent vocals too. definately check em out...i recommend the album "the odyssey"
question to everyone....
who is your personal favorite guitar player? it might be who you think is the best, or just who you dig the sound of...doesnt matter, but who appeals to you the most and why?
my favorites are prolly john petrucci, marty friedman and jason becker...petrucci because hes a mechanical cyborg on guitar with every attribute possible, friedman because he has the sickest and most unique phrasing ive ever heard, and becker because hes an absolute musical genius in terms of composing.
dream theater and megadeth are coheadlining a tour this summer!!! my two favorite bands on the same bill together in one show is a freakin dream come true. choice listening of each band is probably metropolis part 1 by DT and Hangar 18 by megadeth...my head exploded when i heard about this show.......4 times!
Counting Crows — 'Round Here'
Step out the front door like a ghost into the fog
Where no one notices the contrast of white on white
And in between the moon and you the angels get a better view
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right
I walk in the air between the rain through myself and back again
Where? I don’t know
Maria says she’s dying through the door I hear her crying
Why? I don’t know
Round here we always stand up straight
Round here something radiates
Maria came from nashville with a suitcase in her hand
She said she’d like to meet a boy who looks like elvis
She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
Just like she’s walking on a wire in the circus
She parks her car outside of my house
Takes her clothes off
Says she’s close to understanding jesus
She knows she’s more than just a little misunderstood
She has trouble acting normal when she’s nervous
Round here we’re carving out our names
Round here we all look the same
Round here we talk just like lions
But we sacrifice like lambs
Round here she’s slipping through my hands
Sleeping children better run like the wind
Out of the lightning dream
Mama’s little baby better get herself in
Out of the lightning
She says it’s only in my head
She says shhh I know it’s only in my head
But the girl on car in the parking lot says
’man you should try to take a shot
Can’t you see my walls are crumbling? ’
Then she looks up at the building and says she’s thinking of jumping
She says she’s tired of life she must be tired of something
Round here she’s always on my mind
Round here hey man got lots of time
Round here we’re never sent to bed early
And nobody makes us wait
Round here we stay up very, very, very, very late
I can’t see nothing, nothing round here
Catch me if I’m falling
Hey! You people have good taste in music so I joined the community. I'm sure you know the song "round here" by counting crows. What do you think the lyrics are all about? (it's one of my favorite songs btw)
I love Counting Crows, especially Adam Duritz :)
the entire "larks tongue..." series by king crimson, give it a listen if youve never heard them...awesome songs!
