Just because someone doesn't agree with your taste doesn't make them dumb. My opinion is electronic music is garbage. It's like playing with LEGOS when you could be erecting skyscrapers. Metaphors are fun.
your first sentence is correct. the rest makes you dumb.
Whoa there big guy. Your opinion is not universal and my disagreeing with you hardly makes me an idiot. I might have harshly generalized electro music with my statement, but it pissed me off that someone would say one album trumps an extremely talented band's entire discography. I definitely think anyone can make electronic music. All you need is a concept of time signatures and a computer. That doesn't mean it will be good electronic music. Not everyone can play guitar, sing, write lyrics or play live.
anyone can play guitar, sing, write lyrics and play live. that doesn't mean they will be good.
I get what you're saying, but they are two entirely different animals. Playing guitar requires you to play on time while counting, hitting every note evenly, dictating vibrato with your fingers, harmonics, etc. All I was saying is anyone can walk up to a computer, take 5 min to learn the fundamentals of the software and churn out a "song," perfectly on time with perfect pitch. I'd say most people who write or play an instrument aren't very good.
That just makes it seem like your standards for playing guitar are much higher than your standards are for being able to create electronic music. Anyone can make a few bleeps and bloops just like anyone can make a strummed mess on a guitar. It takes time and talent with both to make anything worthwhile.
