Analog Kid vs. Digital Man vs. New World Man , I prefer analog.. but Copeland and Peart I still likeSo Bonham was really sloppy. Funny I don't like a lot of the older rock, because the drum beats fall all over the place. Probably why I liked Neil. He was like a human click track. Some call that stiff. I call it tight.
Yeah, "old and angry." It's bullsh**. I believe music should be generated by human beings, not computers. That has nothing to do with age; it's about art.Every single smug millennial who insists that we're just "old and angry" over the computerizing of real music, ought to be required to watch this video repeatedly, until it finally sinks in.
Rick puts out so much content, you can probably find something that rubs you the wrong way. He's a machine. I don't know how he does it, but I don't have time to watch all the stuff he creates.Do you think Rick's a blowhard? I've really enjoyed his videos over the past year.
I gotta hand it to him, usually Beato is such a blowhard but he knocks it right out of the park on this one. Every single smug millennial who insists that we're just "old and angry" over the computerizing of real music, ought to be required to watch this video repeatedly, until it finally sinks in.
As a drummer, I don't expect much from Rick except for him pulling a tasty iso drum track on one of his "What makes this song great" episodes. Now, when I watch Rick through my novice guitar player eyes... I'm impressed. If I could name a drummer equivalent to Rick as a guitar player...I think Steve Smith. Rick knows music theory inside and out and he can play nearly every guitar solo on the great rock tracks he features in his videos, originally recorded by guys like Steve Lukather and Eddie Van Halen. I read somewhere that Rick could quote Joe Pass guitar parts by ear as a high school aged kid. He's quite accomplished in that regard.As for Rick Beato being a blowhard....
Oh my - all I can say, if collecting up mountains of chops, knowledge, skills, talent and experience and being willing (and able) to share all of them so freely and openly and effectively makes one a blowhard, then may the world be blessed with as many such blowhards as the universe can muster up. But I get it - being confronted by someone who really really really knows their stuff that speaks their mind can be intimidating... Granted I don't agree with every conclusion that Rick has made, but a blowhard??? Sorry...
Im not a novice gutiar player and I agree the guy knows his stuff. so much so I shelled out the 50 bucks for his Beato Book and spent the hour to print out 250 pages, double sided, punch the holes and bind it. It is a darn good resource.Now, when I watch Rick through my novice guitar player eyes... I'm impressed.
