Probably relevant for me to post this since you bring up the OST for Lain. I've been covering stuff on guitar for youtube videos for years (on and off) and the Lain OST is one of the things I've focused on doing. I'm modest about it, so I'm weird about using the youtube tag to link, since it would make it so big and attention drawing in this post, so I'll just link normally to the Lain's Theme video. I started because all I ever saw was people covering the Boa intro song and thought it was lame how there were many more great songs being completely overlooked. I'm also in love with the Welcome to the NHK OST just like I am with Lain, so you can find a whole bunch of NHK songs I did as well as a few more Lain songs on my account.



Thats pretty good stuff. Im a bass player myself and have tried to play the theme of lain bass lines, which I love. However I cannot for the life of me learn songs by ear. Which I made a post about in the music forum recently.

Have you seen Serial Experiments Lain, or Texhnolyze? Both great (though really dark and ambiguous) shows.


No. From reading peoples' opinons on Lain I do want to check it out. It is kinda surreal? I do like some of the Texhnoyze soundtrack. Thanks for the recemmendations.

I also want to watch Bubblegum Crisis and Kite, yeah I am way behind anime. Mardock Scramble looks excellent! Defiantly looks like my type and it is wonderful to see new anime in cyberpunk which was very popular in the late 80s and 90s.

Very surreal, because as the series goes on the line between reality and the online world gets blurred. Very much like Evangelion in how it throws so much at the viewer and leaves 'em with their own interpretations. I love it for that.

Thanks. I really like anime that has you deep thinking. That is why I really like Evangelion it is the type of series that leaves you thinking long afterwards.

This makes it interesting to watch. I do like series that play into fantasy vs reality.

I watched Lain and I felt it was pretty dry for a lot of the episodes but when it was good, it was REALLY good

I read your post and I totally feel you, I've been playing for around as long as you have, I'm nothing more than a mediocre guitarist, I can't solo for crap and screw up constantly still. I don't play much anymore part because I suck, and part because it's not as interesting as it used to be, both probably interact with each other in some way though. My only saving grace is that I learn stuff by ear without much problem, I don't think there's a video I've done where I didn't learn the song by ear.

Concerning the bass on Lain, it's something I've been meaning to do. I'm running out of songs because of my limitations as a guitarist and bass means I can revisit the songs and still produce more unique content. So yeah, I think you saying you want to learn it is going to be the catalyst for me attempting it.

Wait this is an anime forum?

Shoujo yon-koma (4 panel) manga a-la Lucky Star and Azumanga Daioh.Although I'm partial to other slice-of-life type of manga (e.g Yotsuba&!).

I think I'm the only person I know of whose favorite genre is "slice of life" :-) I just love watching charachters that I can relate to more, as the story setting is useuly some where.you encounter every day like a restaraunt in the case of Wagnaria or an inn in the case of Hanasaku Iroha
Or a University on.the case of my all time favorite anime Genshiken. So as a result of this common place setting I feel I can really relate to the charaters as the tend to be more personality developed in order to drive the story along.
