I kinda like macho music, but more like Led Zeppelin kinda macho...

The shredders in that video aren´t macho; more like socially retarded, developmentally arrested cellar nerds.

Sausage fest. I shall try to work that term into more everyday conversations. I think once people were saying "Metal" and were not referring to Thin Lizzy and such I became an old man.

I'm really depressed now.

Truth!

The video had me thinking of some Hawkwind lyrics from way back...
(Spirit of the Age)

I am a clone, I am not alone
Every fibre of my flesh and bone
is identical to the others
Everything I say is in the same tone
As my test tube brother's voice
There is no choice between us,
If you had ever seen us,
You'd rejoice in your uniqueness
And consider every weakness
Something special of your own
Being a clone, I have no flaws to identify
Even this doggerel that pours from my pen
Has just been written by another twenty
telepathic men
Word for word it says
"Oh, for the wings of any bird other than a
battery hen".
Point!

In the bathtub of history the truth is harder to hold than the soap, and much more difficult to find!

That is what those wanks were missing in the OP video.

No. :roll:

That sort of crap makes me cringe. Wasted talent IMO.

I learned to play that sort of shite as a teenager.... but now I chose NOT to.
Tone is king, after that comes soul and feel.
Tone, tone, and more TONE - just ask BB King.

Every single one of the players in those YouTube wank-fests are VIRGINS - shredding will NEVER get you laid EVER.... the 80's are OVER
