The genre that requires most skill
« on: 03/20/05 at 4:59am »
 
What genre, not just in metal, but in all kinds of music around the world, requires most skill?
(i know it's a complex question, but i'm excited to see what you think)
 
PS: Mainly i mean the guitars, but u can involve the drummer and so on as well if you like to.

No man... Jazz is much more famous here in egypt... most of el Sakia & Opera concerts are jazz... there are like 9 days per month or more in each for jazz shows...  
 
Fathy Salama (He won the grammy award last week), Akram El Sharkawy, Yehya Khalil & Ahmed Rabie... And there are a lots of jazz artists here in egypt... & most of them are really great.

Hardest genre has to be Rapcore, a la Limp Bizkit (jk)
I'll have to say Progressive, Dream Theater or something, because it's not just the skill that counts here. You have to hear stuff like The Dance Of Instrumentals, the last part of Home, the middle part of Metropolis to get what I mean. Also you have GOT to hear them playing live.

i think its fusion n melodic n gothic n of course Satriani style) too.. anywayz.. does anyone share this idea:
  MUSIC  it becomes Harder .n difficult when its speed increases..(flamenco)
      n also at first (classic) its difficult (almost) nwe have to admitthat some pieces r beautiful n difficult..  then when it becomes heavier--->soft rock it becomes easier ---->hard rock (difficult)-----> metal (easier)---->heavy\melodicgothic(difficult)    i didnt mention all kinds (jazz)  
 
 my point is that MUSIC differs from a kind (genre) to another.. n from time 2 another...       ....in the end i know it doesnt make sense lol .. ana mesh 3aref 2a2ool elly bafakar fih sorry guys bas sa3ban 3alaya amsa7 kol dah llollz

I don't agree that music gets harder when the speed increases only. Sure, it's a factor, but I can play something really fast, and it's not really good music. The REAL achievement is to make GOOD music that is technically brilliant too. Some people like Joe Satriani and Steve Vai can play really good, no doubt about it, but at points it's just standing there fucking the guitar with no musical value, just to show off. Sorry to all you Satriani and Vai fans, but it is that way.
 
The true difficulty lies in creating, not playing. And I stick to my opinion that Jazz and death metal are the most difficult, because of the great creation behind it (YES, GOOD DEATH METAL IS VERY HARD TO COMPOSE. TRY IT ONCE AND YOU WILL FAIL MISERABELY) and the technical brilliance to go along with it.

......u shd think from the creativety issue ,the speed metal or power metal is so easy when u can play with high speed coz it's all abt. going up and down in scales but the melodic things is so hard coz u have to create a melody that all the ppl will like..3ammatan mafeesh 7aga sa3ba we sahla kolo 7asab dema3' el musician we taree2et le3bo lel music...wala eih??

it's very simple
 
Consider the following the ruling factors of the genre
 
Speed
Precision
Dynamics
Expression
Chord Structures
Tonal Composition
Rhythm Formation
Beat Complexity
 
The  more amount you add of each element the harder to perform becomes the genre.
 
In music schools people learn things the SLOW way first then gradually increase the speed as they gain the skills needed.

Actually, no it isn't when it comes to guitars or drums, most of it is very boring and the only thing prominent about it is the structuring and composition. However, it is when you incorporate it into something such as Metal that it becomes theoretically challenging.
 
Ofcourse this thread is kind of useless, since it all depends on the band really...Technical Death Metal would be my take for the hardest genre in the world, but then there is flamenco for guitar playing. Too many things to keep in contrast.

I will assume the OP is refering to technical complexity, well you can find difficult pieces in almost any genre, rock, metal , jazz, latin etc...
 
But the genre that requires a very high degree of technical profeciency as a prequisite to just starting to play to an audience must be classical music, you play a chopin piece you can NOT make a mistake.

belive me making a new genre is the most hardest thing like " Aggressive Blues Rock " which is a blues rock music but bit heavier with aggressive and whispering vocal line that kick ass but it's really hard  
if you are gonna talk about an existing genre i think it's jazz and chill out stuff

You haven't heard ANYTHING by Necrophagist, have you?
 
And no offense, but i'll bet you don't play guitar either. Tremolo picking isn't technical. cuz if so then Dimmu Borgir would be a pretty technical band  Cheesy .  
 
True Nile have technical phrases, but their fast parts are mostly tremolo picked and not the hard parts.  
 
We're discussing pure technicality here, as in : Total guitar acrobatics. Cheesy  
and in that arena bands like SOP and Necrophagist definitley take the cup.

I didn't make the same mistake i was advocating avoiding dude. I'm a big fan of Nile (Albeit a recent one) and i have heard alot of their work. How you can even compare their technicality to necrophagist's is beyond me.
 
Tell ya what. Tell me which, you think, is the hardest Nile song, i have a little thing brewing here.
 
 
Oh and just to validate my point, a few examples of excessively tremolo picked songs :  
 
- Churning the Maelstrom
- Lashed to The Slave Stick
- Defiling The Gates of Ishtar
- Opening of The Mouth
 
And half these songs :
 
- Masturbating The War God (The second half)
- Stones of Sorrow (The whole part before the end)
- The Blessed Dead
- The Black Flame (The whole part after 1:30 seconds into the song)
 
There..
 
That is not to say that Tremolo picking is ****** any way, on the contrary, i Love it. But Just to show i wasn't pulling stuff out of the blue.

Not to ruffle anyone's feathers but when I read things like "death metal is the most technical TAB3AN" I can't help but crack up.  
 
And you know what technicality is not subjective, you don't have an opinion whether this piece is difficult or not, it is either difficult or moderate or easy....u catch my drift?? True some pieces can be difficult for varying reasons, speed is not the be all end all in technique, but this doesn't change the fact that  certain pieces/genres is widely known to be difficult to reproduce among musicians FOR ACOUNTABLE REASONS. Death metall of course is not known to be one of them -even though some bands might write challenging songs-.  
 
And BTW I've forgot to write this in my last thread: The musical genre that is widely accepted as the most difficult to learn and play is (believe it or not): Indian music!!

The thing with Indian music is that the instruments are generally hard to play (the sitar, for example, generally has about 17 strings!), and also there are so many scales ("ragas"), and so much of the music is based on improvisation.
 
 But Diaa, whether you like it or not, you cannot say that death metal is not renowned for being technical. Maybe not to those who don't know anything about the genre, and i'm not saying ALL death metal bands are technical, but in the "metal-circle" it's a pretty well-accepted fact.

Exactly.
 
Furthermore, Diaa : TECHNICAL Death metal is just that. Technical. It is the most technical among technical genres  (Which includes Technical power, technical black and technical heavy metal). No argument, since it is not subject to opinions.
 
Technicality (And i mean PURE technicality) is mostly noted by :
 
- Non-Recurring (or repeating) riffage
- Continuous time-signature shifting
- Constant resolution to various techniques that are widely accepted as being technically challenging , including (but not limited to-) : String skipping, heavy Economy and sweep picking, and shuffle-style 'tuplets' among regular-time notes (for example using 5 sixtuplets among a whole 16th beat bar) .  
- Also, rigorous tempo-changes are present, although not very common.
 
So yea, as far as we metalheads are concerned; that's the hardest. Unless we start implementing indian music into our songs for some reason (Indian Metal wtf !)
 
Oh btw, if i had to choose a genre to take second place in technicality, it would definitely be Progressive Metal. I'm not talking the regular stuff like Dream Theater, i'm talking Andromeda style finger-melting bone crunching guitar-slaughter.
Give them a listen btw, they kick ass.

Sure thing .
 
Here're a couple Technical Power Metal bands :
 
- Abstrakt Algebra
- Control Denied [Technical Progressive Power] (Chuck Schuldiner was in this band!)
- Critical Mass
 
They're all split up now.. :S ... Which sucks.
 
 
And some Technical Black Metal Bands :
 
- Xapharon  (Search for them on my space to hear samples)
- Drottnar
- Slagmark [I love these guys, they're crazy] (Tech. Black/Death - http://www.audiostreet.net/artist.aspx?artistid=2472 )
- Guild of Destruction [This one isn't really technical , although they say so, but i like their music and if you disregard the horrible vocal, you might like them too.. (http://www.myspace.com/guildofdestruction)

power is just a purely speed-driven genre. I'm not calling it simple, but anyone can learn to play that stuff. What a lot of people don't take into account is that certain passages are easier to play fast than others, and the phrases used by many (not all) power metal bands are merely very simple lines but played faster. If you want an idea of DIFFICULT fast lines, check out Guthrie Govan -this guy is possibly better than Marty!  Shocked He can improvise (in practically ANY style) better than most people can compose, his playing is literally terrifying.
 
 In terms of GUITAR PLAYING at least, shred is probably the most technical genre, as in many artists case, the sole point is to play as technical as possible. What a lot of people mistake about shred is that it is just pure speed, and as Diaa said, speed IS NOT the only deciding factor of whether a piece is hard or not. Shred guitarists are renowned for incorporating fast alt picking, sweep and economy picking, chalenging string skipping, multi-fingered tapping and legato tapping (i.e combining tapping and long legato runs), legato, large stretching, difficult chord voicings, frequent key and time-signature changes, and the use of many uncommon scales (eg Jeff Loomis of Nevermore uses the Phyrgian-Dominant in many songs). In colation with that, i must emphasise that extensive theory knowledge is essential in order to be considered a technical musician, as there is no way you can incorporate many of these things without understanding how they work.
