Really?

How - to both?

I find the irony is that Proggers are notorious for arguing about the music - I've been a member of ProgArchives.com for almost 7 years now, and in that time, nothing has...

Actually, this isn't completely true - it's just what proggers want you to think in order that you perceive the genre as "higher" than other musical genres.

A computer is as much a musical instrument as anything else.

It's true that you can't think and improvise simultaneously.

But the greatest composers of all time - Bach, Mozart, Beethoven et al - were all superlative improvisors. Sadly, most of Bach's music...

It's a fair point in many ways, but the best comeback to this sort of argument is that Progressive Rock is Progressive - so if it was like the music of Genesis, then it could arguably not be called...

Sony ACID Xpress is quite fully featured for a FREEBIE that doesn't require a crack or anything nasty like that.

Depends on the "Metal".

If you want a "proper" NWoBHM "Smokin' Valves" type metal sound, you NEED a Marshall JCM 800. Nothing else will do. JCM 900s sell for less money for a good reason.

Split is easily one of the best hard rock albums of the 1970s, never mind one of the Groundhogs best. Try also "Thank Christ for the Bomb" - there aren't any "Cherry Reds" on it, but it's unholy...

You seem pretty sure of that - could you expand and enlighten those of us that simply don't get it and think they're nothing more than a somewhat unsophisticated metal band with keyboards?

The only problem with that list is that Wolfpack officially suck the big one and shouldn't appear on a top 1,000,000 of metal.

What?

That makes no sense.

You're saying that all you need to do is spend an hour learning every chord there is, then you can play, with practice.

With all due respect, THAT is bollocks.

It takes MUCH more than an hour to learn all the major and minor chords - the only area I concede is that it might take an hour to get to grips with the pentatonic.

Even barre chords take a while...

Dave Greenfield is a highly underrated keyboard player - and The Stranglers are one of my all-time favourite bands (more so than Spooky Tooth!).
