Love modern country. Guys like Brad Paisley can play circles round most metal players.

It's at least as technically demanding as any form of metal and the playing styles whilst having some different techniques, I find to be actually very similar for the most part.

+1 Brad really rocks it out.. Seems like a decent chap too who really knows his way round a guitar

Styles differ but it's still musical notes and a good musician can make ANY genre sound good

Totally agree,as a metal player i see loads of the same techniques and could see myself in the future playing modern country.I know a cpl of guitarists who made the switch to country also. Jazz,classical,country,fusion,metal,rock ,to my ears is all pretty much the same, Guitar played well with great technique.

Brad Paisley can shred wickedly.

Re: Djent bands go country

And the women singing country all have great voices. Most of the female 'pop' singers are absolutely awful. Actually, most pop music is absolutely awful but I digress.

The thing I like best about throwing on the country station when I'm driving is that I've never heard any of the songs before - it's all new.

we have a radio show on the bbc that just plays country for an hour a week (radio is v poor here) and i always end up hearing something new and wanting it.. Secret Sisters last week. Not much guitar in sight but haunting stuff

Keith Urban is another killer player. Fantastic tone and playing...

Re: Djent bands go country

I think its a bit easier to play a superstrat through a high gain amp and sound great than it is to play a Tele through a clean amp and sound great. High gain is often a great place to hide poor technique. There aren't too many guys out there who can do both with equal ease, like Steve Morse.
