my bass instructor showed me some bass tabs for AC/DC songs.. not to show how cool
they are but how lame they are.

if yoy are familiar with tabs (tabulatures) youŽll know what this is.
this is how some of their songs bass lines go:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0

THE ENTIRE SONG GOES LIKE THAT!!

i wonder what went through theire heads when they were making that "riff"

"hey, lets put some zeros there! oh wait i got it!! lets put some more zeros!!"

"needs more cowbe.. no zeros"

Ok.... Are you saying that they are washed up hacks?
right. haha biggrin.gif

As far as the itinerary for the tour, I only noted the date for our show, and the location. The email had AC DC and the Eagles mentioned only...both shows would be ace. I got the Eagles one this month and it'll wipe me out money wise!!

Check guitar riffs, apart from metal, most modern songs are just power chords and nothing else.

At least there was some originality and stuff other than power chords in.. most old songs. (AC/DC was mainly normal chords, finger tapping and some power chords in earlier stuff)

Awesome cool.gif I was flipping through channels today, stopped on VH1, and saw the video to Rock N' Roll Train. Yes, a video on VH1 other than Chris Brown, Jason Mraz, & Rihanna's stuff (or however you spell her name) Made my day so much better.

I guess that was enough for the poor kid, I won't even break out renaissance choral music, baroque canons, or nearly the whole mass of work produced during the romantic period.

AC/DC just love rock, and of course, their foundation is blues but it is not very integrated with their sound. In the same way Eddie Van Halen doesn't sound like Clapton.

I just saw their full page concert ad...Brian Johnson looked strange, then I noticed it's his hair! Afro is alive with Johnson! haha biggrin.gif

Kinda reminds one of 1970s Don Henley

I think it'll be better then the albums circa BallBreaker. I was looking at that one in my own collection...1995 IIRC

Eh? Both are same era, but Rush is way better in general and harder to play.


DaSanAnThug: Compare songs then, Pinball Wizard vs. Miss Murder? Two songs off the top of my head (I do not listen to much new music, only AC/DC's new stuff as well as Tenacious D and maybe a few other things) and of course, Pinball wizard is less simple.


Although it depends with the song, generally, new music is simpler than old music though.

what i mean is back in the olden days drum ..beats(?) were easier.
guitar rifs are faster and more complicated. and expesially bass lines.
bass used to be just a "background music" instrument that you could hardly even hear.

todays music is way more difficult to play than old 70s 80s music.

Power Chords for everything and almost no solos/really small and easy stuff is harder than songs like Eruption, Free Bird, Sweet Home Alabama, Transylvania, 2 Minutes to Midnight, Foxy Lady, One?

I could go on, but I don't really want to.

The idea behind garage rock and punk is you don't have to be a virtuoso. As I said before here, Angus Young has said back in the 1980s he's uncomfortable winning guitar polls, he's not claiming to be some great guitar god. He has dedicated his life to rocking out, I praise the man!

i feel like you need to EARN and DISERVE the fame. always give your best shot.
never go the easy way. youre not allowed to be in the spotlight if you are not better that others.
you need to PROOVE that you dicerve to be famous, all the time.

some bands have made really good songs when they first came out but after
that they dont put as much work into thei songs because they think that
people buy it just because they are famous, not becaue its good music.

no. what im saying is that the average old metal song is easier
than the average new metal song.

BTW why did you post that first iron maiden clip.
just basic drums and the already well used western cowboy "riff". complex?
