The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Are there any musicians here?

    I've been a musician for quite a while - mostly in the heavy genres. Actually I have a soft spot for classical music, extreme metal and experimental/electronic music and what I make is kind of a mix of all that.

    May 1st my 4th album was released. Its done pretty well.

    (sorry about the seperate URL - the youtube tags don't seem to be working for some reason) Here's a video preview of my latest release:

    Anyone else in here play, write and record music?

    Really like your music OP.

    Been playing guitar since I could read. I have a rough cut of one of the songs I have written recently:

    I like your music as well! Its good!
    Couldn't help but notice a little bit of a Meshuggah feel. ....also noticed you're a Soilwork addict.

    Man, I haven't listened to that band in ages!

    I'm more of a Carach Angren addict.

    Awesome thread there's some good musicians in here. I am a drummer of 12 years and have recently picked up the guitar about 2 years ago.- This is a vid of me improvising on the guitar. Kind of a metal/ Hard rock feel.

    Sorry not very good sound quality.

    I'll throw a wrench in the gear and go classical on ya'll ass. I played trombone for 15 years, still pick it up to gig every now and then, but only if they pay me enough, haha. I subbed professionally after high school for the Dallas Opera Orchestra and Dallas Wind Symphony, but never landed a full time gig. Also played on a few local rock bands albums and did a few sound checks with Evans Blue, but they decided to go a different direction.

    My username kinda gives it away for me!
    I've been playing bass for quite a while now, though I don't practice nearly as much as I should. On the upside, I've finally started writing a bit of stuff with two guitarist friends of mine, and it's gotta be some of the best fun I've had in a while.

    Bass Player for about 8 years. I am mainly a heavy metal and classical fan when I listen to music. When I play I gravitate towards funk, stoner rock, blues etc. I like to be heard, and not just be filler. Love tapping and slapping.

    Got a midrange Yamaha 4, a maple 5 string Ibanez jazz bass, and just sold a Kramer aluminum neck 8 string. Want a Music Man. May have to check out the Bongo even though it is fucking ugly. Great reviews.
