  1. ah I see. I went on Tuesday to a game. but the new mandate went in effect tonight
  2. I went to a couple LA Galaxy games and they didn't check anything or mandate masks at the venue. However some were voluntarily wearing masks
  3. I go for Boston or Albany bc of Axls vocal performance on Street of Dreams House of Blues has tons of energy but Axl sounds week for most of it. And the current quality we have sucks
  4. You know, idk if its just me, but I can still hear them in the official release, however it only occurs twice, and at a low volume in the background. I never really understood why Axl or Caram decided to purposely shift "screaming fucking banshee..." off rhythm. Live he sings it on rhythm like the leak
  5. His lead tone is classic, would have prefered if he used a tone similar to what he used on "Nothing to Say" i.e. more distortion
  6. Dont have time to listen and nitpick. but since Braib is still on drums, do the rhythm guitars sound like the old members? I know the chorus is definitely Slash on rhythm bc hes doing that descending note thing instesd of power chords
  7. Slash is doing a descending note thing during the chorus. instead of just basic power chords. Nice little touch to stray away from the basicness of power chords
  8. Aside from the quality of the songs (which, like GNR, had a couple absolute bangers,but also some duds) not much memorable hooks. Always gotta have a catchy hook for a band to become popular, and I don't remember the hooks being particularly catchy. Good To Be Alive had great verses and prechorus, but the choruas was lacking Times called for different genres also one thing everyone forgets is side projects are almost never popular, or even as popular as bands they came from.
  9. as much as i like seeing an adler proshot of my michelle, seems like he clould do with some practice with. metronome. There were some rather odd tempo fluctuations (that are entirely absent on the album versions)

    Bruno Mars

    i like some bruno mars. Finesse is a bop
  11. I bought a tshirt from the pikes site. Came in about 3 weeks i think. No complaints here.
  12. Howard Stern would just talk over Axl consistently, Joe Rogans a good listener when hes not in his own head, which seems to be more the case now than when he first started
  13. Def Jam: Fight For NY Halo 2 Conkers Bad Fur Day(N64)/Live & Reloaded(Xbox) Super Smash Bros (N64) Any one Tony Hawk game NBA Street Vol 2 FIFA Street 2 Need for Speed: Carbon GTA Vice City GTA IV Sidenote: Resident Evil 4 for the Gamecube was fun, but once I got to the 2nd disc, I found it to be overbearingly monotonous
  14. Well if you just want it for home studio, a DI box into an interface would suit you, running something like Guitarrig 6 or the like. Personally the way I record guitar stuff is Amp (TSL 100) > attenuator/load box (Ox Box > interface (Arturia AudioFuse Studio) Cheaper gear can be used obviously. To answer your question, in my scenario any amp that I like can be used with the loadbox/speaker simulator. I don't use a real cab myself, just my monitors
  15. The chorus is a top tier melody. Very catchy IMO. The rest of the song is not. 1st is cool i guess, but way to short, good vocal delivery though. 2nd verse is ass-juice: Dumbed down variation of the riff and weak Axl vocals. The ahhs are a little annoying. I can see how they can be accused of ripping of the equally annoying (to me) Immigrant song screech, but the only similarity I see is that it starts on the same note, the vocal runs are different though
  16. sounds cool. Needs more of chesters screaming. or maybe Slash could rewrite a couple guitar parts to sound heavier. Chester sounds cool
  17. id say he was a good drummer, but not anymore. His AJFA parts are nicely thought out, even if he required multiple takes to do them and never replicated them again, but the arrangement of the drums are great for metal. He became sort of a pocket drummer with load and reload in the studio, which didnt hurt the songs IMO, it might have made those songs better, since the style (sometimes grunge southern rock, sometimes grungecinfluenced) they were going for didnt really suit over the top drumming St. Anger has some definitely interesting drumming (not talking about the sound of thd drums, talking about the actual arrangement), and it might be the last time I've heard any inspired drumming from Lars. Some drum parts that he wrote for some of the songs are surprisingly un-Lars-like Still enjoy watching them live though That Battery peformance was great, although very slow. The Wherever I May Roam from Howard Stern was also great (with the exception of that random ass, out of time, rushed fill he did in the 2nd verse) Edit: I WOULD say that Lars may be one of the most influential drummers From the much metal I've heard, there weren't many metal bands that were doing the "One" style riffage (0-0-0-0-0-0-0) paired with double kick machine gun drum pattern before one came out in 88.
  18. I wouldn't say there is an AFD sounding overall song on CD. I will say that Riad's 1st verse riff is very AFD. The overall song however is not. The chorus is great, but not AFD at all because its not just a basic power chord being played (before BBF played on it). 1st verse is cool. 2nd verse sounds not so good, and outro is just pretty much a jam with no structure. IRS has a definite groove to it so id agree with it. Axls delivery is great. Id say that the Antiquiet version of the song with only Brain on drums is far sleazier than the album version bc Brain had an Adler esque simplicity on the part before the 1st solo. As for the rest, no AFD-ness in sight bc they aren't typical blues based hard rock/rock n roll type songs most of AFD was. Given my limited knowledge of the names for genres for the other guitar centric songs, with taking into account when they were written (not released): CD - 90s Alternative Rock Shacklers - Metal (Nu/Funk Metal/Heavy) Better - unsure, i dont think its industrial or Nu enough to classify it as either. Groovy shit tho.. Ill say just Hard Rock Scraped - (Groove Metal/Heavy) State of Grace - Industrial verses, but grunge like soundgarden-y chorus Atlas Shrugged - Pearl Jam grunge The other songs aren't seemingly guitar oriented so I won't include them (Including TWAT, which seems to be based on the piano progression being played, rather than the guitars)
  19. damn out of pocket for bumblefoot. Seems VERY bored/upset in that video
  20. Learn a Mateus Asato song note for note. It might take long (which is normal for classical guitarists learning classical pieces) to completely master, but if you learn it note for note youll be able to use his habits on your own playing
  21. thanks for embedding the video and getting it taken down
