    Chinese for beginners? ;P

    Post  EratoTiaTuatha on Tue Dec 28, 2010 5:13 pm

    Hello everyone, I've got a little question for you. I normally only listen to j-rock and only know like two songs in chinese. But I do adore the language ever since I was able to learn a few words, which was years ago. I would love to try singing in this language, and get to know some music. But, I won't be able to sing anything too hard at the beginning. So my question is - what songs do you recommend? They have to be easy when it comes to speed and pronunciation, but I don't care how hard to sing they are. Also, I personally can't stand pop in any form, so I hope you can suggest anything that's rock or metal. (yeah I know, wishful thinking. But I can't stand more than 30 secs of "sweet stuff")

    Also, even if there aren't Ultrastar songs, I'd also love to get to know some chinese bands, so I'd very much appreciate some recommendations, especially if you can direct me to a place where I can get the music, or link me to some videos.

    Thanks in advance!

    Not much has happened here since I posted this topic, but since I already started, I thought I'd share something I found with you. A few days ago I came across a wonderful, versatile and pretty mature Chinese band - The Last Successor. So if anyone comes to this thread looking for some answers, at least I can recommend one great band to you Wink By the way, if you come across their lyrics in pinyin I'd greatly appreciate them! ;*

    Can't link because I'm too new a member, so copy & paste if you want to listen to some of my favourites.

    Shin band (, Mayday (, maybe Alan Kuo ( or if Sony acts up there as well), I also like the solo work of Shin the singer ( ... and then there's always Tang Dynasty ( and CthoniC ( to listen to. (Yeah Cthonic mostly sing Taiwanese Min Nan but they're epic, couldn't leave them out.)

    There are some okay pop-rock songs by pop artists but usually you get ten, twenty ballads on one more interesting song.
    ... it's sad. I need more real Chinese rock and metal music. And I need to order than Cthonic album.
