I mean how can you be this good and still play totaly out of time???
I don't get it, I really don't and you don't really need to practice with a metronome - just jam with some CDs and stuff and learn to play on the beat.
All of you who have played with a drummer will know that to be able to play around the beat, you have to be able to play on the beat first and I'm telling you - a time comes when you can just tell if a person is playing out of time intentionally or if they just can't keep time (something Joey Dahlia can't comprehend but it's plain for us to hear).
Slash and Page do it quite often but the fact that they are SPOT on time most of the time shows you that they are doing it intentionally. EVH disregards time but he still hits all the down beats and he is SO on the beat when riffing that you just know he's in complete control.
I'm just rumbling here and don't get me wrong - the backing track, the slow ideas and the melodies are all very solid - great in fact, but the "solos" are not done as well.
And about the hotness - well, let's just say that if I met you out I'd probably be doing my best to get your phone# (unsuccesfully
) - you rock, just not when you play fast.
I really don't know why I'm as mean as that...........with Kevan and Guitar Wizard gone and Mr Orange being as mellow as he is these days I guess I'm the resident harsh A$$hole *
*Disclaimer - this in no ways implies that Kevan, Guitar Wizard ot Mr Orange were/are a$$holes themselves - it's just that they used to speak their mind in a rather harsh way from time to time.
