    I'll never be "ready" for metal. It just doesn't agree with me.

    me either, it sucks. anyway, download some Pink Floyd, The Doors, Eric Clapton, Hendrix, The Beatles, Rolling Stones etc. etc. Basically, if you like music you will like any of the great classic rock like that...

    Outside of a few early pioneers, I agree.

    The metal gallop is one of the most annoying things in music.

    Metal is one of the very few genres I cannot get into.

    Have you tried Pandora.com? Make a radio station for the type of rock band you like, and it'll play more music that should fit your tastes.

    Like, if you made a My Chemical Romance station, you'd probably like The Used, My American Heart, Matchbook Romance, 30 seconds to Mars, etc...

    That site will help you more than we can probably. If you like linkin park, try The Red, or Evans Blue....

    Why do people trash other peoples tastes?...It's fucking opinion.

    IMO - Metal is garbage. I know metal bands that have members that ADMIT they don't even know chords. I laughed and they said "well, you know...in metal, it's not really important". Seriously. These guys aren't a garage band either...

    There isn't much talent in metal it'd seem...some decent bass players and drummers. Other than that....all a bunch of garbage...to me.


    But I understand some people like it. So I can't say it sucks. If it's got an audience, it's good to some....so my opinion is worth shit.

    Metal fans are elitist, intolerant dickheads.

    I hate to stoop to generalities but i've yet to be proven otherwise.

    Paul McCartney openly admits to not being able to read/write music and yet he's been at it for some 45-50 years.

    Yeah.

    There's nothing that even comes close to the importance of the ear in music. All the technical knowledge in the world won't make up for it.

    Hendrix couldn't read or write music either, but listen to him play the guitar and then listen to a heavy metal band and how they play the guiatar.
