When I’m playing Scrabble, I generally feel pretty good about picking up the letter R. There will be plenty of words I’ll be able to make with that letter. It seems metal and rock bands don’t play a lot of Scrabble, because there were not as many popular bands as I’d have thought that start with the letter R.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘R’ fortnight
Before I write another word, I need to say … this is a positive story. I love my Moniker Guitars custom Reedsdale guitar. I wish I had an opportunity to order another guitar from Moniker Guitars. Sadly, I can’t. Nobody can. Moniker Guitars is no more. This makes me lucky—I already have one.… The untold story of my Moniker Guitars custom Reedsdale
Quick. That’s what I think this fortnight’s entry in the alphabet playlist of metal will be. There just aren’t a lot of bands that I’m aware of that start with the letter Q.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘Q’ fortnight
P is for playlist. No, that’s a stupid way to start this entry to the alphabet playlist of metal. I know … Today’s episode is brought to you by the letter P. Nope. I’m pretty sure there’s a children’s television show that has done that before.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘P’ fortnight
Oh, this will be a disappointing fortnight of variety. The M fortnight seemingly ruined everything and set the bar way too high. Don’t get me wrong, there’s some awesome music in this fortnight’s article. There’s just not as much as when M rocked the house.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘O’ fortnight
I always suspected that last week’s entry in the alphabet playlist of music was going to be hard to top. Sorry N … you’ve proved my suspicions to be warranted. This seems to be a fortnight of slim pickings.
Not trying to take away from the bands that make up this list—there are some exceptional entries here—there just aren’t enough of them. Is that due to my own limited playlist building abilities? Probably. But going through the catalogue of music I listen to, there don’t seem to be a lot of heavy bands I can easily recall that start with the letter N.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘N’ fortnight
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm … Not only is that a satisfying word to say/type, but it’s also an accurate count of how many M bands are in this fortnight’s edition of the alphabet playlist of metal.
There are 23 Ms for those of you who don’t feel like counting.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘M’ fortnight
I’m still playing catch-up. Why? Well, I’m slack. Another reason is that I’m easily distracted. My recent blog post about my ten most influential guitar duos for example got me thinking about what a list of my ten most influential bands with one guitarist would look like.
One band from today’s list would absolutely be in such a list. I’ll have to put that list together. Soon. But not before I finish this article.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘L’ fortnight
This is not going to be a suggested Top 10 guitar duos of all time kind of post. This is a post of the ten guitar bands that feature guitar duos that most influenced me. Why? Because this is my website.
Let me explain what brought this post on first.… My ten most influential guitar duos
A few things happened when putting this entry together in my alphabet playlist of metal. First, I realised I’ve loved a good dual guitar attack in a metal band for a very long time now. Secondly, I discovered that the letter K was another letter that brought me a more limited result when building the playlist. Finally, I discovered that this limitation made me write another late blog post.
Sorry about that.… Alphabet playlist of metal—the ‘K’ fortnight
