Hah.. well not always "good" music, but music nonetheless!

There is one thing that has always bothered me about writing music though.. it's the fact that I usually only like the songs I write that are based on my relationships. When I write a song about other stuff.. they always turn out dumb, but most of my girl songs are ones that end up really getting into. Ahh well, maybe it's just me.

I don't think it's just you. Over half the songs in almost any genre of secular music has to do with romance. It's what really gets our emotions going. That's the way God wired us, and I'm okay wth that. Love is so awesome and emotional and everything, that it's easie to write music about that than something else.

I'd like to hear someone actually play one of Mike Portnoy's (Dream Theater) drum solos.

Of course you'd need an insanely huge set such as his. His current set going on the road with the Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulance tour has 3 bass drums. I think he can go fast enough with two.

Heh... I usually write about random stuff.... usually ends up sounding like Tool's Jimmy. Minus the cussing, of course...

i know most of you jesus freaks are gonna hate me for this...but you should really listen to some metal, black metal especially, to hear some amazing drums. New Dimmu Borgir and 95-2000 Cradle of Filth stuff is amazing from Nick Barker, and Strapping Young Lad (kinda psycho punk/metal) is ridiculous from Gene Hoglan's drum work. He also played for Death, Old Man's Child, and a few other big-name metal bands. Other bands with amazing drums = Emperor, new Mayhem, Into Eternity, At The Gates/The Haunted, Dark Tranquillity, Sonata Arctica....yeah...

Sorry but it just blows away all the christian bands i've heard, though i haven't really heard that much other than what i've heard from one of my friends.

btw, i'm makin a metal band of my own...kinda a mix of folk metal (Blind Guardian, Kamelot, Demons & Wizards) with symphonic metal (Therion) and depressing stuff like Into Eternity and Nevermore. both heavy and clean guitars (all currently done by me), fast metal drums (also me...on the computer...till we recruit a real drummer), mostly clean lyrics (nick, with me on lower harmony), a few metal growling parts (me)...nick will be playin keyboards and brad (the kid that used to listen to a lot of christian music but listens mostly to dream theater and primus now) will be playin bass...email me if u want a clip of the song i'm currently writin, i've recorded nearly 2 minutes of it on 2 guitars and got some drums parts though the drums need work and are nonexistant in spots as of right now. it's at 33 tracks right now for 2 minutes...quite a pain to organize in ACID.
