  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Yup totally boring subject I know but I'm trying to help a friend out. He is in the market for an acoustic, essentially your dreadnought style one and has asked me for advise. Problem is I have never had any interest and therefore history of purchasing or caring about dreadnought acoustics...
  2. Music: Other Instruments
    It was on sale cheap, and I felt insane, so I bought this: For those who don't know what it is, it's an Erhu, a Chinese bowed instrument. It's distinct for a number of reasons: it's got 2 strings, the bow hair is in between the 2 strings, a qianjin, which is a string that ties the 2 strings...

    Greetings all from near the Toronto area. I did a search for metal guitar gear forum and this lovely abode appeared so here I am. I love metal, I love electronics and I love to play guitar so this is a great place for me to hang. I suck at playing and Im a total beginner of the terminology of...
  4. Music: Recording Studio
    Right. I'm new to this whole music recording thing with the software etc, I've got Reaper which won't play any sound back to me, it records what I play but no output what so ever. I've got GuitarRig2 which works fine, it shows a signal when I make a track for it, I can make and save presets...
  5. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hi all! I'm a former bass guitar player (stopped playing about 10 years ago), and decided to start playing guitar. I expect to be primarily playing rythm guitar parts (once I get good enough to, that is to say). My requirements for the guitar - good saturated sound, but with a decent clean...
  6. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Examples of his playing I just love the classical/evil sounding exotic scales he uses... I realize it has taken his entire life to get where he is, but I really don't even know where to start to be able to play that style a few years down the road. Ultimately I'd like to be able to improvise...
  7. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Anybody know of a good source for beginner backing tracks? My daughter's at the point where she knows (but doesn't really know she knows) C & G Major Scales (although, she sometimes mixes-up the F/F#) in 1st position and we're working on the A Minor Pentatonic in 5th position. Yesterday she...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I put this together the other day when I took my first amp that I ever owned and tried to produce a decent metal tone out of it. Let me know what you think.
  9. Musician Classifieds
    anyone interested in doing some not-too-serious online collaboration? Would be nice to get another beginner guitarist/drummer/vocalist to record some DSBM or just regular black metal Main influence would be Austere, Lost Inside, Darkthrone (early) and Kampfar something i have done by myself...

    Hi guys, new beginner - intermediate player here. Been playing for about 10 months and right now I'm finally getting to the point where my playing doesn't sound like ass on a stick. Finally got through raining blood without messing up about a week ago, it was a pretty glorious moment. Joining up...
  11. The Car and Bike Forum
    Hey, guys...just looking for some thoughts here. To the best of my recollection, I've never been on a motorcycle before...at least, not one that was actually running. However, I've seen a lot of scooters around Boston, and the other day, took notice of a Honda Ruckus parked down the street...
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So I sat down this afternoon to throw together a quick lesson about some of the things that helped make the seven click for me when I first picked one up. A couple hours later, I had almost 20 minutes of video. :lol: I sort of geared this towards a fairly competent guitarist who'd never played...
  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hello all metal guitarists :) I am looking for some expertise and help regarding amps. Long post I know, but please be patient. [note: following section is classified with a newbie warning] xP I am recording a lot of original music in my room, plugging my guitar into an audio interface through...
  14. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Introduction: I've been playing a little over 6 years now, September of 2004 was when I started playing guitar. Nothing super interesting happened for a majority of the time. Thrash started it for me; Metallica, Pantera, etc. and then I moved to Death Metal, and I'm into Black Metal now, as...
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    OK, thanks for all your feedback on my previous posts, I really appreciate them all. If you were me, would you keep Peavey Vypyr 15, or get a ROLAND Cube 15X instead? Bear in mind, I have never played an electric guitar, and I want something simple. I am looking for metal sound, I won't be using...
