Guitar here. I dabble with the bass, but I only mimic my guitar playing with it, so I suppose it doesn't count :P

And if I try to sing, I scare the children...

I played the piano for a year or something back when I was something like seven years old, but I quit since my teacher was such an ass. I've forgotten everything I ever knew about playing the piano, and would probably not be able to play anything on it to save my life.

Apart from my now-nonexistant piano playing, I recently started learning to play the tin whistle. I got five .pdf files of notes from an irish fellow in our branch of the School of European Swordsmanship, each with something like 25 tunes, and am trying to learn to play them. I can only play a few tunes right now, but I'm progressing steadily.

wow, quite the nice rep there.

How advanced are you with the Violin?
I've been playing for about 4 months now and I've been teaching myself.

I like to think I'm advancing nicely.
Title: Re: what do you play?
Post by: Gazus on July 09, 2007, 07:37:16 pm
Well, wait... I started at 6, then stopped at... erh 16 I suppose.
So, 10 years. :)

(But conservatories are so 3VIL... that's why I left)


The advancement depends on how you do. If you seriously practice scales every day (not an hour, something between 15 and 30 minutes are enough), have a good musical sensibility (which seriously helps you; nobody is equal in music, that's a sad fact) and the Faith (the more important thing, I think), you'll incrase your skills faster than touching it for a day then stop the day after, then practice again...

so if you can play Rock Band Drums, you can play Drums.

I play keys, also, I create dark ambient soundscapes by the grace of synthesizers. Vocals too, if one is willing to count black metal screams and ambient whisperings as vocals.

I am most of the time in favour of programming as much as possible in music, though programmed good and not programmed like trash, as it be the case in many pop songs. I am in favour of drum machines and things like that, and also feel that studios simply produce not such an adaquate sound as simply recording everything onto your PC—preferably without the medium of air in between it—and architecting that atmosphere and production from there. Such as ambient black bands like Vinterriket and Nordlicht do.
Title: Re: what do you play?
Post by: Gazus on August 02, 2007, 01:02:36 pm
After a long break with the violin I finaly took it again in my hands and played.
It's like a bicycle. You can't forget how it works.
(and that's why I may record some celtic songs soon... as soon as I have bought a shure sm57)

nought evolve > black metal singing is vocals for me. It needs a minimum of technic and practicing in the aim to not lose 90% of your voice after 5 minutes of yells.
(Same for death metal growling)
Title: Re: what do you play?
Post by: nought evolve on August 02, 2007, 01:11:28 pm
Black metal vocals is more acting than actual singing though, I was always able to scream for quite long without losing my voice as a child. Black metal vocals is simply acting it so to make it as torturous and suffer-like as possible. I'm more interested in applying the right effects to the vocals than actually screaming them, since I find that to be quite embaracing.

Death metal vocals would perhaps require more practicing.
Title: Re: what do you play?
Post by: Gazus on August 02, 2007, 01:37:31 pm
"Acting"... well it applies for singers as Maniac or Attila (both from Mayhem), but when I hear such vocalists as Ihsahn from Emperor, the word "acting" doesn't comes to my mind.
Expression is better I think.

Well, it is essentially voice acting with an artistic touche, you are supposed to sound you are strapped to a torturing device, screaming in pain.

It may not be always about that theme, but the vocals keep sounding like that. I have very little interest in those cliché darkness Mayhem-esque black metal and instead prefer something more sophisticated, but the vocals remain as such, only better.

I'm not fond of Mayhem.
Emperor is my reference, but the vocals make me think more to power and hate.
Best example that comes to my mind is the begining of the song Nonus Aequilibrium :

Quote
I am unconquerable
In my worship
I am invincible
On my crusade
Title: Re: what do you play?
