This thread is full of scarves. Can we diss on scarves??
I just wish he wouldn't use "greenie" like that. He loses the essence of that guitar with all the mess between it and the amps.I like Kirk’s playing. I just wish he’d lay off the damn wah pedal for every FUCKING solo, and stop playing through a mountain of processing gear.
I am done with debating on Kirk’s playing abilities... I am not a fan of him, but OF COURSE being the lead guitarist of the best heavy metal band in history (at least commercially) means that he can’t be a “bad” guitarist...
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaEverything I have to say about the disgusting KH bashing I said in this video on my old channel - enjoy:
I think James was a big influence on Kirk's playing in terms of the melodic stuff. I wouldn't be surprised if James actually wrote the melodies for Kirk to play, say on something like Creeping Death. But that's just a hunch.People talk shit but his work on kill em all, ride the lightning, master of puppets, justice for all, and black, is outstanding.
There is not a single bad solo on any of those albums. And many of them are memorable and singable.
Stuff like Disposable Heroes fast solo, or the slow fingerpicked solo in The Unforgiven,.. fantastic stuff.
Creeping death, fade to black, battery, justice for all,... he has tons of really great solos.
Never "just a shredder" he always had a melody and structure to his solos that was pretty unique.
I think people just like to talk shit or focus on bands at the end of thier career instead of looking at the cool stuff they did in the early days.
I'd hate to focus on Dyer Maker for Zeppelin and ignore the fantastic first 4 albums they have.
Because Dyer Maker is pretty lame.
I dunno, when you are going into your 40s and 50s with a limited vocal range and you want to keep being able to perform, you have to have some technique. You can't continue to spit nails for that long and not ruin your voice.Somewhere along the line James went from being an angry singer to taking singing lessons or something and trying to be Adele or some shit. But I hate it. Sounds like R&B metal. Thats my only beef. I'm not a hater or a super fan. In fact I played a bunch of them last week.
Maybe true. I just don't like the singing of the old songsI dunno, when you are going into your 40s and 50s with a limited vocal range and you want to keep being able to perform, you have to have some technique. You can't continue to spit nails for that long and not ruin your voice.
