I just love imagery. I particularly seem to have a thing for skies on fire. I suppose this is of no surprise to you guys, knowing my appreciation of all things atmospheric.
At least you're not into analogies about empty lots and bleeding cuts like Bono.

Then again, five threads of Liechtenstein planning couldn't be found, so what the hell do I know.
Dream Out Loud is a black hole. The UYMFA gang was able to post a thread there that had some life, but even that was stagnant compared to the Bar.

I've worked out half the solo, and it's a lot of fun. I wish I had a decent amp and some pedals, cause then it would really rock.

Electric Co. is easy. The intro, the solo, the verses, the chorus, the outro ... man it kicks a lot of ass.
Ah, right. I obviously never tried Ultra Violet, and it doesn't sound like it'd be hard to me. Perhaps that perception is accurate for me - the less chords, the better! I really, really don't like chords. Something like 11OTT or ACD is ideal for me.

I'd love to get some awesome pedals. That might get me back into playing, really.

John Frusciante's solo stuff has quickly surpassed my RHCP fandom. I only really liked RHCP for Frusciante's work, and discovering his solo stuff has been awesome.

My intent is to become lead singer/rhythm guitarist so that I appear to be playing, but really my missed notes and whatnot can get covered up.

I'm actually pretty good at chords, though still inconsistent.

I'm sure the postwhores could get a 1,000 post thread, or could've pre-Liechtenstein.

We considered it, but felt bad about spamming the hell out of somebody's work.

It definitely would.

Acoustic guitars and electrics with slight distortion get boring. Plus, an awesome pedal can make just about anyone sound pretty good.

I can't decide if I'd like to be lead guitarist or the vocalist, but if I were in a band, the decision would be made for me - I'm a terrible singer.

I have a massive ego and love attention, so lead singer is the natural position for me. My voice is average at best.

Bowie's 1984 with wah .

The Diamond Dogs album makes me feel a little bit better about my guitar playing. The roughness of Bowie's lead guitar attempts on the title track still managing to sound awesome makes me think I could be alright.

If you had a clear microphone, I could console you. But you don't, so...I'll just have to assume you're better than you say.

For the record, I don't have a great voice either, but I've gotten used to hearing it by now.

I picked the highest notes in EBTTRT, which fucked me over. That's just slightly too high for me. I can hit the long note in "Kite" and the opera note in "Miss Sarajevo" ... well the Bono live note, anyway.

We should have traded lines for that one. I think you could have done better with the crimson sky line than I did.

I think I did two lines in LIB, but that whole thing got fucked up due to everyone being out of tune and out of time.

Yeah, just confirmed by listening to it.

I did the "Parked car ... love complete" portion of the second verse and was way out of time. I also did the "dangerous idea that almost makes sense," also out of time.

My microphone takes the bass out of my voice.

I just suck on all levels. I recorded a joke a cappella covers album in 2005 and I remember a couple of the songs appeared in the pre-show music on setlist party feeds.
