this is legitimately one of the most masterfully crafted rap albums i have heard in fucking years
i read a review that summed it up perfectly in that it combines "straight-forward rap thrills" with amazingly poignant lyricism and beautiful artistry.
i hardly ever listen to a track from this album, i typically just listen to the whole album from start to finish.
Yoshi wrote:Well this is perfect. Grey, as someone who has not really found rap he likes apart from stupid things like "Because I Got High" or BoB's "Magic" what are good starter albums? I don't care for "thug lyfe" styled stuff. I am going to look into the album you are talking about because you've piqued my interest.
Yoshi wrote:In guitar news, does anyone have any experience with the G&L Ascari GTS or Fiorano GTS? On paper they seem to be perfect fits for me. Set neck, humbucker, push/pull, Gibson scale (Ascari), and so on. Unfortunately the nearest place that stocks them is a state away
Yoshi wrote: So I asked some friends to buy and learn/jam with me so we'd all feel motivated to actually play. The only friend that was really gung-ho was interested in bass. Well, you can't really have two bassists and no drummers or guitarists (We are not SMV!) so I decided to pick up guitar instead.

I don't know if they have them in a store near you, or even if there's a guitar center near you. But I thought I'd let you know. You could also try a few local pawn shops, who know you might just find one there.
Havoc751 wrote:By the way, what kind of amp(s) do you have, if any? I have a Fender Frontman 15G for my guitar, and a Peavey Max126 for my bass guitar.
Havoc751 wrote:So do you have a drummer and/or singer yet? The drummer can sometimes be the hardest one to find, trust me I know.
Also, alt. rock is a good way to go. However, a lot of people I know prefer to play pop-punk and hardcore pop-punk.

Yoshi wrote:I'm running a Vox Pathfinder 10. I picked it for it's cleans. It has the nicest cleans of any practice (10W-ish) amp I tried. Unfortunately trying to play with anything above 1 degree of gain or overdrive sounds terrible. So I'm looking to do two things. First, buy a fuzz (Probably a Big Muff) cause, hey it's a fuzz and I play a lot of 90s stuff. Second is replace my amp when I have money. I'm eying either a Vox AC15 or Blackstar HT Club 40 or something along those lines. Then I'll probably grab a better guitar. But my guitars are pretty fine right now.
Havoc751 wrote:As far as an amp goes, I would recommend a Fender Frontman like I have. It's relativity cheap, but you get a lot for your money, at least as a good starter amp. But I've never tried using it at high volume, because I have neighbors. I've also tried a few Line 6 amps before, and they're pretty good.
90s stuff is the best way to start, just because it's all power cords, and also very simply. The first song I learned to play was Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. You should try learning Holaday by Green Day, and All The Small Thing by Blink182.
