UneasyMonkey;2224680 said:Tubular Bells is incredibly amazing. I felt so many emotions while listening to it. Mike Oldfield is a genius. I especially like the part where Vivian Stanshall lists the different instruments before they are played near the end on part one.

Fizzeler;2225316 said:Random Opinion:The easiest way to venture into new genres is to take a genre you listen to and find bands that blend it with the genre you are trying to get into (worked for me and death Prog.)

UneasyMonkey;2226249 said:Agreed. But Geddy Lee > Chris SquireI definitely agree with both statements. I had always liked Steely Dan, but after getting into Traffic (prog: psych, jazz fusion), I started getting more into Steely Dan (full on jazz rock) and enjoying all their music. Now that I think about it, Dream Theater might have helped me get more into prog. I had always liked metal and bands like Yes, but I didn't know much about prog before I listened to DT. They made me discover that I LOVE long songs with varying themes and instrumental breaks
Fizzeler;2226274 said:No just no Chris Squire is better than Geddy Lee
JukeBoxHero;2226300 said:I say they're pretty equal. :cool:
Fizzeler;2226305 said:I can roll with that
JukeBoxHero;2226345 said:I mean no offense man, but Squire has his less complicated moments while Geddy always kept his line of the same complexity for the most part.I mean take this to this (Also if you want to learn some Chris Squire bass lines starting out, I recommend this as one of the tracks). Then take this to this I'm just saying keep that in mind.
Fizzeler;2226412 said:then there are the really complex moments like this and this as well as most of his stuff from Drama which I have to say surprised me
JukeBoxHero;2226426 said:Ah Drama shouldn't surprise you. Chris was the leader of the band at that point and probably had more room to put some awesome stuff in the songs. I was just saying Geddy is a very good bassist in my opinion, he can tango with Squire. :cool:
