    This didn't change my life. But it made rock alot more personal/relatable for me than the other things that were huge at the time, e.g., Yes, Genesis, Frampton, etc.

    That's kind of silly. You are talking about a guy that has 20 Grammy nominations and 7 wins since 1997 and has been selling out big concert venues for at least that long. I was at a bar two months ago and heard a newer Beck song play over the radio. The guy next to me said, "That's a cool Beck song. Remember how good Odelay was?"

    So, in your mind, if a guitarist sees the name Beck and thinks of Jeff Beck, they are “so stuck in the past” that the forum is “in trouble”?

    :lol:

    That is scary small mind. o_O

    All it means is that most of the forum members have a much broader musical reference base (which can easily contain more than one Beck) than you have. :D

    That is really cool. I didn't know that.

    Thanks!

    Do you like any of the music side of metal, because even as a major metal fan, I too can get tired of the growly-grumbles, and have spent a good amount of time getting together a decent amount of clean-vocal metal. Both for my own enjoyment and as a way to ease friends/family into the genre. Would be happy to drop some suggestions, though I'll say up front, a lot of it is proggy.

    There's a fair amount of proggy influence in the stuff my metal-head nephew has shared w/ me so far.
    He likes the shifting time signatures and a few have a clean vocal double, not unlike an acoustic guitar track, paired w/ something kinda high-gain.
    That said, I wasn't really understanding Peter Gabriel, Gentle Giant, or Jethro Tull when they were "current"...
    So, for now, I'm trying to listen to his playlists as a part of a growing conversation and be open to what he likes - heck, we might end up playing together, or he might wind up inheriting some low-gain amps & guitars w/ under-wound pups... :lol:
    Peace - Deeve

    sure - suggest away

    Ha, but it isn't a guitarforum. It's a forum of one particular guitar. And what a surprise...the exact guitar used by all those storytellers...dylan...springsteen...etc ;)

    Sorry I'm so late getting back to you, had my list ready and just forgot why I pulled it up. And now I'm at work without it, so just gonna be off the top of my head while I'm on break.

    Artist Album
    Soen.......Lykaia
    Opeth......Pale Communion (if I recall properly, there's a few "cookie monster" vocals in parts of one or two tracks. Largely clean though)
    Sermon...Birth of the Marvelous (one of my all time favorites)
    Cynic......Traced in Air (The clean vocals are weird and kind of robotic to fit with the sci-fi concept of the album, which is definitely not everyone's cup of tea)

    It's all pretty proggy stuff, but hopefully that little snippet can help you find more stuff you like

    Anthrax and Testament are also both decent picks if you want more classic metal feel to the music. Just totally forgot about them somehow. AND they're both still really great live if you end up liking them enough!

    @Cysquatch
    Thanks for the added list.
    Truth be told, I prefer R&B Gospel and other old-man music we discuss here.

    I've gotta show I can still learn...
    Peace - Deeve

    btw - I think yr avatar is great -
