Re: YOU KILLED NAPSTER

METALLICA HAS ALWAYS SUCKED!!!!!

Re: YOU KILLED NAPSTER

I agree totally with this. There is nothing like the 'real cd' to have in your collection. MP3's dont offer the best in music quality - So if you want to play it in your car's CD player or somewhere, you need to buy the cd.

Napster should be allowed to live on.

Is there any programs like napster available, does anybody know?

: studies show napster users buy more music than the average person. napster doesn't discourage music purchases, it encourages it. first of all, unless you have a cable modem like me or the equivilent, it takes forever to download. once it is downloaded, it is an mp3 on your computer. unless you have a CD burner, you can't take it off your computer. so most people are just sampling the music on the computer anyway. many songs i have downloaded off napster have had errors in them, clicking, popping, and noises. you get what you pay for. assume i have a CD burner, and download and make my own CD. i still just have a blank CD, no liner notes, no label. i concede, someone can print their own label, but for the most part, users are sampling music only. When they find something they like they go out and buy it. What the recording industry wants to avoid, if the public finding out that a CD has only one decent song on it, and the rest it filler. They want to maintain the right to sell us worthless garbage. not to mention the quiky and new stuff you can get from napster and no where else. eminem released a bootleg himself on napster. unreleased southpark sounds. anything. dont hate napster, hate metallica. metallica is the judas iscariot of the year 2000. i have spoken

Re: NAPSTER WAS DOOMED

The laws on copywrite infringement go all the way back to the 1970s. So, get over it.

On Lars, well dude, how would you like to work for free?

::: i am against you! for years metallica allowed a tapers section for free at all concerts they allowed people to bootleg their concerts only yo ask for a copie in return. the albums they recorded is theirs. they have a right to protect their investments with these albums. you and the other knot heads need to quite crying. the point is you want something that is not yours for free. don't be cheap spend the money like the rest of us. it is clowns like you that ruined the free stuff metallica allowed to stop. i will not boycott the mighty met. stop whining pass it on!!!

Re: BOYCOTT METTALLICA CD'S

Hey Kirk (I am PJ's buddy) met you in North Carolina. I think the bands (the music makers) should boycott all these going nowhere fuck-ups. Half of you fucking people are probally on welfare. What makes you think you deserve something for free. You are the scum of the earth...Fucking wake up....nothing is for free in this world...How about getting a job and paying for a fucking CD....when I grew up I used work my ass off so that I could go get the next Madien Album....It would be good for you...

Fuck you guy's. Metallica have worked long and hard to get where they are and they don't need dick heads like you dowloading freebees off the net. All artist's deserve to get paid for their music. Get a job and buy the album!

Re: BOYCOTT METTALLICA CD'S

Mettallica if it was all about the fans then why would you take away alittle bit of free music,what about those who aren't as forinet as others?you make money out the azz,and sure you have to take that and pay of this person and that but you still have quite abit ,i mean look at you,your band,your homes,cars,ect..You don't appreciate the fans and it's not about the fans,it's about your f***in money,you took the only thing that was free to us,i have spent alot of money on Mettallica t-shirts,cd's even tapes when they where popuar,vhs tapes,ticketsand for what,to find out that you as Mettallica had lied to the FANS,you lied to your fans and i hope that sales drop for you.......

Right on Bro!!! Metal bands deserve our support, not this bullshit. Support is shown through us PAYING for the CD not ripping them off. How long do you assholes think they'll be able to continue putting out music if they ain't getting paid. Give your fuckin head a shake.

Re: Napster's Gone! What Now?

i think it is alll fucked!!!! metellica r capitalist pigs... fuck them wot am i ment to do now?

7string 6string....

I have an old guitar and I was thinking (dangerous) ... Why not restring my 6-string with 7-string strings (confused yet) I mean, strings 7-2, or course, I would sacrificing the high E string to the Gods of low tone, however... isnt that the point... Question is... would this work on a six string, or is there something magic about 7 strings... I have a floyd rose liscenced double locking tremolo if thats an issue.... What do you guys think ???

thanks, ME

Re: 7string 6string....

well want to tune low. Do you use an alternate tuning already? If you don't adjust your guitar correctly it will sound like complete garbage. Have you ever played a 7string? I vowed I would never buy one but every time I play one I come closer. I love them. Now my everyday in a band tuning is crop C(lowCGCFAD), I love that. A six string can be adjusted although it might take you some time. There will be less tension on the neck, you will have to adjust the springs, and string height.

Re: 7string 6string....

yeah, i hear you... i figured if i went to the 7 string strings, low B right? i would avoid the string tension thing... any thoughts?

Re: 7string 6string....

okay a little test for you. Put a set of 11's on your guitar tune to lowBEADGB. Sound like crap? Okay loosen the springs up. Retune. Sound like crap. Are the strings vibrating freely or hitting frets. You may have to raise them. Retune. Keep doing this. You may get it to sound right. 7strings are built and setup for it. There pickups are made specially for them(atleast ibanez are). This may take awhile. Just play around.
