...and YouTube is killer because you can cheat in learning the riffs.  These guys are very talented.



Learning riffs from You Tube isn't cheating, it's an great resource for that, saves so much time.

For sure.  Tab stuff is fine but it registers for me when I watch someone play it.  Plus, being able to slow it way down on YouTube is so helpful.

Don't want to derail the thread. I've been playing for quite a while. I try and work them out by ear first then might go to you tube for confirmation. I'll play along with the pros too, good for the timing. Have fun.

We are talking about Modulating on different Frequencies, so it's on the same rail ;)

Rock music died at the end of the last rock genre which was Grunge. Nothing new has happened since the turn of the century. Just a rehashing of everything that was done before. We might hear a good new song now and then, but there is no real music scene to go along with it.

Every decade before the turn of the century had many music genres and a scene to go with them. Each genre had a name and you felt like you were a part of that worldwide scene. Some genres even came back a second or third time and were reborn with a totally new sound. It was radio that spread the word. We chose the station that played our music. For me that was mostly college radio which today is pretty lame compared to what it was in the 70', 80's and 90's.

So, not only is radio dying, rock is dead, at least until a new genre is discovered. I think 50 years is a pretty good run.

I remember when Wall of Voodoo came out with Mexican Radio. Those were good times.

In my truck since I don't have any streaming or satellite, I pretty much listen to KPBS (San Diego's NPR affiliate), or our local jazz station Jazz 88.3 (real jazz, not lame smooth jazz).  At work Pandora, Spotify or I'll stream Seattle listener supported KPBS (www.kpbs.org).  Yes I think terrestrial radio in general is dying with some exceptions.

Thanks for the Demob. I was just complaining that there aren't any 3 man rock bands any more (that I know of). I've always been a fan of Cream, James Gang, ZZ Top, Police, etc

You're in San Diego right?   There's our own Schizophonics:

Regardless of what medium you're using, any one who says there's no good new rock music is not looking hard enough.  And yes that includes three piece bands.

88.3 doesn't quite reach San Clemente. I listen to 88.1 KJazz from CSLB. It used to be all straight ahead and Latin Jazz, but now they mix in a little mush. Check out 105.7 in SD. It gets really good at times. You never know what they are going to play. Some funky auto play metric. The commercials are short and in Spanish.

Rock is far from dead and it's only expanded. The internet and it's evolution changed everything.

 One of the best bands to ever do it, didn't gain widespread notoriety until around 2004, and The Black Keys are about to start selling out stadiums again on tour with Modest Mouse this year, and Modest Mouse in their own right are an alt/Indie rock band who are huge and didn't have mainstream notoriety until post 90s.

There are too many rock-altrock,indie rock, alt-metal-nu metal (that is closer to hard rock) that have come out and made huge waves over the last 10-15 years to name.

Queens of the Stoneage were big time post 90s, well into the 2000s, as were multiple spin off projects such as Them Crooked Vultures, Eagles of Death Metal, etc. The Foo Fighters are still going, and bands such as the White Stripes had their most popular albums around 2006-2007 and disbanded after 2010, so I don't buy into the rock dying in the 90s. The genre just diversified.

I looked them up.  Apparently they are down for the moment.

"For the last few months, Max programming has only been available online and on our mobile app. Unfortunately, we have ceased operations for the time being. We canít thank you enough for bearing with us through this ordeal. From day one, our goal has always been to get back on the air. That remains our hope. We appreciate you and will continue to make every effort possible to get back on the air in the near future. "

It's what is being broadcast over the airwaves. The station has no name. Just on 105.7  fm

I agree there is great music around. It's just not new. The schizophrenics are awesome. They sound just like MC5 in the late 60's. We might as well call it retro rock.

In order for rock to stay alive, it needs to keep re-inventing itself. The second half of the 20th century saw a new type of rock and roll appear every few years. Sometimes these new genres even overlapped each other. This has not happened in the last 20 years. Therefore rock is dead, or at least dormant while everyone keeps writing and playing the same old stuff that has been done before.

Maybe someone else as well playing the lead guitar solos (or recorded?)

Originally from Poway, great song!
It takes a quiver to do that.
