as a HUGE fan of both justin and BLS (or more particulary zakk wylde early solo stuff) i must say drummerboy zakk aint poo compared to justin. i mean zakk rocks but he`s not even in the same league dude. totally different and not fair to compare them. rusty cooley is better than both them though so eat it bitch!!
what the hell does a drating teenage drummer know about music???
GRATEFUL DEAD FOREVER!!
I`m just stating from a personal viewpoint that, in the scope of how many people play this style now, it`s all getting too samey.Largely because there`s only so much you can DO with the technique, and it`s more of a party trick than an actual style to use consistently.
And to bring up the point of radio singles etc. I can`t stand any of them, because these days it`s all indie bands prancing around in brown suits and plastering "The [insert word]" as a band name.All mainstream sounds either the same, or utterly boring (like RnB for example).
And now i`m bored of typing a pointless rant...
It sounded like 2 people playing, kinda.
Here`s an actual good song using this style.
Airtap: Eric Mongraine
i`m more into the likes of rusty, yngwie, or even vai. but i like what justin does.
not as good as me though =)
But there`s so many slap-tappers around these days (Erik Mongrain is a good example) that it`s already becoming monotonous.
I mean, when one person does it, brilliant. Original. Fresh.But it`s such a limited technique (slap body for rhythm, general twiddle lower on the neck and tapping higher up for melody and harmonics) that once a few more people do it, you realise how samey it sounds...
