  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'd been fooling around with blues and like it very much but found myself pushing the amp (a Supro 1970RK) to beyond its wheelhouse. I was inching more toward a grind and grit that even a decent pedal couldn't produce in that amp. Heavy distortion, fuzz, etc., just made a great amp sound like...
  2. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I have played guitar for a long time (since late 70s) but as the years went by found myself playing less and less where it got to the point if I was lucky if I played for an hour a month. Last May I decided to stop being a bitch of a scrub and get back into playing a bit. I actually spent...
  3. General Music Discussion
    Thought I'd post this up as it's not often anyone bothers to film our sets, we did a headline slot in Nottingham (one of my favourite places to play) a few weeks ago and someone stuck a camera up stage right, unfortunately as we were running late the dudes camera ran out of battery with like...
  4. MG.ORG Status Updates
    Hey there - I posted in my thread regarding an overdrive that I'd received my OD from Jeff, but it didn't show up. I reposted, thinking that I'd fat-fingered something, but it didn't show again. It does, however, show that I am the last person to comment on it. In a likely unrelated issue...
  5. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Was going through some old videos and saw I'd done this in January 2017. Can anyone do the down picked chugs in Pull Me Under up to tempo? It's pretty darn tough. Maybe better down pickers would find this easy, but I fancy this is tougher than some more obvious examples, like something like...
  6. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    This just popped up in my timeline - This is the LTD Sparrowhawk - a Kelliher signature model. Looks an awful lot like the Gibson RD, if you ask me. Wonder if they're also trying for fans of Ghost... What do you think of it? Photos of the Moment - The ESP Guitar Company Bill Kelliher on...

    and it was actually good! I thought the trailers were hot garbage but apparently they inexplicably decided to exclusively use the worst jokes in the movie to cut them. I guess that's better than when a movie looks hilarious and then it turns out all the best bits were in the preview. :shrug...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Little GoPro clip from rehearsal last night, showing the blend between my Mark III and Adam's Mark IV (even if he was a touch loud). This is the ending of one of our songs. And yes, our singer forgot we were running it through instrumentally.
  9. General Music Discussion
    I'm soon about to start recording some solos for two upcoming RR albums (this one is from the more old school oriented heavy/speed album with new versions of old but previously unrecorded tracks) and it's just so much fun to play this one over and over :flex: And you just gotta love it when...
  10. Guitar Parts & Accessories For Sale / Trade /...
    All of these are in real nice shape, never been gigged with since I've owned them. The Crybaby has been modded to be true bypass, and has a red fasel installed. The Bit Commander has a slight portion of the DC jack missing, but it doesn't affect the way the cord sits in. The Hairball is totally...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I think it's fairly safe to say my rig has evolved a fair bit during my absence. Actually, several times. I'm now running two different amp setups as I'm now playing in two bands, with an fx rack common between the two replacing the pedalboard I used to run. With band number 1 I'm using 6...

    IRS no longer accepting $100 million checks - Sep. 14, 2015
  13. General Music Discussion
    Bit of a guilty pleasure, perhaps - its about as straightforward as hard rock get - but I like this rather a lot. Catchy as hell. :metal:
  14. General Music Discussion
    I've got a week of annual leave, and I thought I'd have a crack at learning and playing through all of Xerath's II. I did actually learn Reform pt III from it last Thursday, and that gave me the idea of setting myself the challenge, so it's only nine of its tracks in a week, not all ten, but...
  15. General Music Discussion
    I'll preface this by saying Floyd was my first concert ever when I was 11 and it really skewed my idea of a 'show' for years to come. After Floyd I saw Vai 2 years later.....no lasers? No pigs? No videos? My dad bought my girlfriend and I tickets to see Brit Floyd for last night in Miami. I...
  16. General Music Discussion
    I hate battle of the bands, it's ALWAYS a shitshow. We got the invite to do one and I pushed for it because it's at a venue that I've had a great history with, it's a place I've go when I'm not playing gigs to hang out....spent my girlfriend's 21st birthday there, etc. Turns out they're filming...
  17. General Music Discussion
    As the huge Running Wild fan I am I have also noticed that mr Rolf has played one lick over and over again so I decided to make this collection :flex: it's a bit old now but you should see it if you like RW! (I got reminded about this through that Paul Stanley banter thread :cool: )
  18. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    This isn't a proper pickup demonstration - I mostly just use the neck position, with the bridge for one passage in the middle - but I used my Strat with the ML set for this month's Jemsite solo competition. This is an awesome sounding set of pickups, plain and simple. This is with the gain at...
