Well i have figured something out :)


Well, people like songs mainly for the lyrics, maybe beacuse they can relate to them, or the artist has put down what you may be feeling in words you could have never put together? I usually find myself searching for songs//music to reflect how i feel for times when i might want/need to listen to them. Well, i have taken a new love to instrumental. Instead of waiting to hear words to enlight and describe how you feel, you can listen and let you mind set free, and there is so many different intakes to an instrumental song, as one meldoy might mean something completely different to the next one of us. So i think instrumental should become more popular :)

Yes, definetly. Sometimes music doesnt need words to evoke emotions (sounds corny i know).

I couldn't agree more. I was listening to Fisheye just a while ago (its one of my favourites now , anyway) , and I realized that the melody and lead lines portray more emotion, more 'feel' than words could.

Slash's solos, anyone?

Good instrumentals sound like its speaking to you. Eric Johnson's stuff is real good. but lyrics are nice things to have too. Classical music is really nice for the fact that they dont use words, but you can hear the emotion/soul put into it by the composer.

its just that heavy metal doesn't need the growling. :p

Well, it's true. Take a look at this:

I agree, lately I have been listening a lot of Marty Friedman which is instrumental. But it has a lot of emotion in it and it definitely doesn't need any words.

i totally agree too. notes act as words so no need to vocals :p keep up the good work ;)

To be honest, the vocals in what I listen to are often incomprehensible. Coulsn't really care less about lyrical content, it's about how it makes the song sound, makes it heavier in certain places and so on. See vocals as an instrument and you'll see what I mean. They do take second place to instruments though.

people get mad when i listen to metal bands like lamb of god or heaven shall burn or as i lay dying or other shit and i tell them i listen to them for the music not the lyrics or the singing(cause if your listening to metal your probably not in it for the melodic singing) so in short, Fuck the critics!


Coulterboyz wrote on Jan 15th, 2008 10:16pm

halfmastmutiny, you missed the whole point. In both of her blogs. Anyway, Yea I know what you mean, but I think the best is when I play guitar. I dont think, I just set myself on autopilot and let it rip. I have an acoustic, so that helps with most feelings. Except for anger. Then I plug it up, cuz its acoustic/electric, and just let it rip. but it doesnt sound right when I'm angry. guess its a good thing I'm a naturally happy person :D

Good for you, keeping an open mind. Have you looked into Paco, Segovia, stuff like that, the Mahavishnu orchestra (or whatever they're known as). Even Satch, and Gary Hoey.... That stuff makes me wanna move. I like to listen to it while cruising. And the epic "Cliffs of Dover" by Mr. Johnson..... words simply can't define. (And I really appreciate the points of view from my metal brothers on this, I agree all around *-horn high in the air*) .....Nice blog.

yess instrumentals are my reason for listening to music!


Drakathan wrote on Mar 16th, 2008 1:25pm

You really should listen to Sonata Arctica.


Gunpowder wrote on Mar 17th, 2008 5:04am

Good on you. I prefer instrumentation to lyrics, as well. Words can't adequately describe some feelings like music can.


mfinnan101 wrote on Apr 16th, 2008 12:15am

Totally agree.
I've always loved instrumental over music with lyrics anyday!


No Spin wrote on Aug 16th, 2008 9:54am

I strongly agree. I'd say 95% of bands focus more on lyrics than the music, which is completely wrong. The sound is the most important thing. Triad by Tool is one of my favorite instrumentals.

You might dig "Mono", a Japanese (hope I rememer right) instrumental group.
