Nothing wrong with playing a Metallica song...but I do get sick of hearing S&D, MOP, One & Enter Sandman. Kids don't seem to realize they did record other tunes...Luke98 said:Edit: I'm 14 and wouldn't play a metallica song in a store. I have my reputation, Y'know?
I agree. It does seem to be a misconception. There's a lot of very talented players in metal. But if you try it and can't pull it off, that's another story. But most of these types are kids too, and part of being a kid is trying to show off & be cool. You don't realize until much later in life that you actually looked kinda foolish.Metal#J# said:I understand that this bothers alot of people. But what bothers me is when people assume that there is no skill in playing faster metal type music. And I feel for the kid that gets picked on for doing so
The most typical guit shop characters I'm familliar with are the 12th fret elitest types who have all learned the latest Guitar One lesson and cant apply it to anything. They just pull them out when shopping for guitars they cant afford!
