I want to kindly welcome you to the Tone Taxi today. Today we’re riding through the neighborhoods around TAC headquarters. Today I wanted to talk about heavy metal music. There is an enormous soft spot in my heart for heavy mental music. I absolutely love heavy metal music. Just a couple of weeks ago I went and saw Slipknot in Boise, Idaho. It was incredible. It conjured up all those feelings an reminded me why I love heavy metal music. I don’t know why. I just do.
The ULTIMATE Guitar Practice Routine
Just show up every day, and I'll tell you what to play!
The thing that’s ironic about this is that all the music I play, all the music I teach, all the music that I really love and listen to a lot, is extremely far from heavy metal, very far. Doc Watson and Tony Rice never listen to Pantera or Lamb of God. I find that ironic. It brought up a question in my mind. I want to know what music you listen to that is so vastly different from the stuff that we learn here on Tony’s Acoustic Challenge. I want you to leave a comment below. I don’t even care if you duplicate another comment. I just want to hear what you guys listen to that is so different than the things we learn here on Tony’s Acoustic challenge.
For me, it’s definitely heavy metal. I’m talking screaming, loud guitars, shouting, flames, masks. Sometimes there’s a devil on stage. That’s what I listen to that’s very, very different from the stuff that I play. I’m very curious what that is for you. Please leave a comment below and thanks again for riding in the Ton Taxi. Don’t forget to wear your seat belt.
