Serious thread. Is it solely found in guitar and bass playing? Can wankery be found in genres other than metal/rock? I'm debating someone about this. he says if a band like Godspeed You! Black emperor throws a 10 minute drone section in, that is wankery. Or Autechre is wankery. All these random things. I see wankery as nothign more than a guitarist going to town with a crazy solo that does nothing but please himself. Thoughts?
