    For me, both Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson tie my number one spot for the best Progressive Rock keyboardists.
    Same Wakemen is great on keyboards

    Apparently, Jason Newsted will be joining Metallica on stage in the Rock and roll hall of fame induction. Pretty cool, I've always liked NEwsted.

    Which members are getting inducted? I doubt Lloyd Grant, Ron McGovney and Dave Mustaine will, and slightly less doubt for Cliff and Robert, but ther rest are shoe-ins.

    Not sure, but Cliff is perhaps the most deserving of them all.

    I'm guessing you were just late, but my response is above your post.

    Oh, and I just realized that the new Mastodon cd is out. How is it? I'm considering buying it, since it's really the only way I can show support.

    I like it.

    Only way you can sample it, really?

    You act like those other means are bad things.

    Haven't had the best experience with those "other means", with multiple computer problems, although I would be in major debt if I didn't rely on them.

    Stop relying on virus-bred programs like bearshare and limewire then. :p

    Never heard of bearshare, but I would listen on youtube before downloading from limewire :p

    I figure if I'm ever going to write music, I should at least know time signatures, know the difference between 3/4 and 4/4 time, etc.

    Anyone know a decent place for this? I know how to read a bit of sheet music, if that helps... but definitely don't enjoy doing it.

    Also, my gut tells me that what I am about to say will end up in the "Stupid things you've heard from others about music", but I would like to know. I get the basic idea of what a pick up s, however, I only have an acoustic, so I'm curious to know a few things about pick ups for when I get an electric.

    1. Are they easy to switch?
    2. I'm assuming pick ups are an electric guitar exclusive thing, right? I've heard of something called a "Piezoelectric" pick up, but haven't been able to find much on what they are.

    They are easy enough, mostly just taking off some screws and knowing what wires from the PU are supposed to connect with the corresponding wires in the PU dock on the guitar body.

    Piezo's I know less about, but from what I do know they are some kind of non-electric thing (though you do find them in electrics from time to time) that are built into the bridge of the guitar.

    On time signatures, just find an orchestra composer. Also, your dislike of sheet music offends me.;)

    Piezoelectrics are devices that use electricity to directly influence movement, or vice versa (movement that creates electricity). Don't know how that translates to guitars though.

    Maybe forming the electric signal solely from string movement instead of the magnetic waves that PU's magnify?

    Roger Water's solo career is ****ing dull.

    Also, I don't get the fuss around the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album. Seems like a bunch of boring pop tunes heavily indebted to the current musical climate's ironic love of the synth.

    It's Blitz. Was out in February, but only got around to listening now.

    Really? Pitchfork shat themselves in excitement over it, gave it an 8 or something, and everyone I know thinks it's the ****.

    From what your telling me, it's a huge let down from the Pylon-drenched past albums.

    I don't know, I like some of their past albums, but this one just seems too hipster even for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and totally indebted to the current climate, like I said. Skeletons was a good track on the album, the rest just sorta blurred for me. The second half had a few more guitar songs, but those weren't so inspired.

    I'm hoping so, because I like the band and was hoping they'd release something that ruled. That Skeletons track will grow on me probably, it's a good one.

    Let's hope, I like Yeah Yeah Yeahs every now and then. It'd be a shame if they watered themselves down.
