pic related is pretty great punk IMO
i mean, if you consider his work garbage you consider punk garbage because it really wasn't that different

Hey /mu/, I need some help.
I agreed to play guitar with a play going on at my local tea shop, and I'm playing with musicians that are much, much better than me. The style of music they're playing is Celtic-sounding, and other than a select few songs, I have very little experience with playing Celtic music. Also, it's going to be mostly improvisational.
I need some good Celtic-esque guitar songs to pick up on the style. Any suggestions?
OP here, the only songs I know that are Celtic sounding are a Percy Grainger song, which being a march would be difficult to improvise over, and this song

Best Boston band. GO!
>he listens to robbie basho, unwound, talk talk and john fahey and thinks that his taste is "unique"
>My favorite genres are post punk, noise, freak folk, free jazz, musique concrete, and lots of traditional music

What's the most intensely sad / feels album?
For me it has to be pic related. Something about it is so personal. And it's almost relatable whether you're going something presently, or remembering a dark time, considering this was after his whole ordeal with drugs.
Hospice would be my runner-up I guess, even though some people think it's melodramatic.
God tier taste, anon.
I'll stick with Frusciante and say that this album was remarkably sad, or at least very personal. I love how on a few tracks you can literally hear how badly his health had deteriorated from his heroin addiction, the best example being "I Can't See Until I See Your Eyes"
Plus the fact Joaquin Phoenix was on a couple tracks makes the overall feel of the record as it is today very haunting.
I'll post a few more.
1. Metallica - Master of Puppets
2. The Who - Tommy
3. The Mars Volta - Deloused
4. The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
5. The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
6. Green Day – American Idiot
7. Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
8. The War On Drugs – Lost in the Dream
9. Muse – Black Holes and Revelations
10. Joey Bada$$ - B4da$$
11. Coheed and Cambria - Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness
12. Lupe Fiasco - The Cool

How do people write songs with chills? A friend of mine will just sit down and write a song that is spine chilling. It's odd cause his range is just about two octaves and he's a nasally tenor, but what he's doing is working.
It makes me a bit jealous, but he'll just sit down and pump out a song out of nowhere.
How do? How does someone get great song writing skills?
I got music theory, and improvising and throwing chord progressions together works pretty well. But for the most part it seems effortless. He even wrote a two chord song just using an augmented C and an augmented A chord and it is almost universally enjoyed when we play live.
What I'm more curious is about capturing a spark. I am always practicing and getting better, I just want to know how people put that spark/sound that makes people have chills into music.
Has /mu/ ever seen Godspeed You! Black Emperor live?
I have two times. Last time yesterday. They didn't disappoint. I already miss it... What an experience. So much chills.
What does /mu/ think?
Thank you for your Help, Unofficial Helper Of /mu/.
I tried and tried multiple times to listen to them (OK computer and Kid A) but radiohead just doesn'tresonate with me.
I wanted to express this feeling in a baity fashion to further degrade the level of discussion in this board and eventually get some recs on which Radiohead albums I should listen to, except for OKC and Kid A
