You were saying? (I can't say I ever really got into Pantera tbh, so I'd have to go with metallica even if I only enjoy a few albums (and only a few songs from each album)

I was saying that three hours of playing f minor pentatonic scales doesn't make you good. They do have some good songs, no doubt. I probably know the words to 90% of the songs they ever wrote. I'm sure I have drawn Vic 1000 times as a youth. I am not unfamiliar with Megadeth.

I personally do not consider Megadeth to be on the Pantera/Metallica level. Megadeth might be on the Anthrax level, in my world. However, you probably haven't been listening to Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Aaron Neville, etc for the last 3 days and I can fully accept that.

@peg - that's a good album. I would go one album up to 'Far Beyond Driven'. That album was brutal.

Some ,including me,would argue that if it wasn't for Dave Mustaine, you would'nt have MetallicA without Dave, he was lead guitar. We're talking metal? We're talking guitar!

Touché there, it's just a preference as I seem to be listening to a lot of megadeth lately. That and it was on at the time. (I had a crap tonne of college work to do on my graphic design course, so I thought I'd power through with some endlessly samey guitar riffs.

That said, on another note, I am actually starting to take an interest in music on a more theory side basis. So by next year I would probably have a much more matured view on the subject.

TL;DR - It's a mix of innocent naivety and preference with a touch of convenience at the time.

@mac - I could answer probably any music theory question you have.

@Mindz - Metallica dumped Dave for being a douchebag and went on to be one of the most popular metal bands ever by enlisting the far more talented (than Dave Mustaine) Kirk Hammett. Your argument is more suited to Cliff Burton. After Cliff died, Metallica was never the same again.

Nice, I suppose I'd just ask; do you know any particularly useful books on the subject?

@do I know a book

No. I didn't learn that way. I started by learning scale formulas.....oh wait duh, yeah I recommend a handbook. The Guitar Grimoire

Just to be clear, when you said "book" I'm thinking of Mel Bay and what not...not books like the guitar grimoire.

As much as I'm probably going to get flak for this, I would probably say overall that Metallica is the better band. Pantera had a few great albums, don't get me wrong, and I'm a huge fan of "Vulgar Display of Power", but Metallica just has so much more. Their entire discography (aside from Lulu ) is just amazing, and I actually like how they've experimented with all sorts of different styles and genres over the years. Granted, their non-thrash stuff is not to everyone's tastes, but I enjoy it all the same.

The funny thing is, up until a few years ago I was a rabid Megadeth fanboy, and I never bothered to give Metallica a chance. Even when I did, I refused to listen to anything made after their self-titled album until about a year ago, when I finally decided to give their newer albums a chance. I was absolutely blown away by them, and from that point on I knew that Metallica were more than just an amazing thrash band.

As for Megadeth, I still enjoy them, though mainly only their early stuff. "Peace Sells", "Rust in Peace", and "Countdown to Extinction" in particular are top-notch albums.

well, I'm just referring to a text based media that I can have around to glance at. Not some "how to do instruments gooder with this 5 step plan that incorporates you giving me £10 a minute".

But so far I've just been learning by playing. :v
