    Two of my favorite songs off The Phosphorescent Blues, no less: These guys are nuts. "Familiarity" is one of the coolest things I've ever heard, not just because of the stupendous mandolin part at the opening, but because it's a heavily classically influenced 11 minute song in three...

    Man... I know this show won't be for everyone, but if you have any interest at ALL in sort of funk-tinged fusion, definitely check this tour out if you can. It's McLaughlin's last, and while I'm only passingly familiar with both men's work, both are killer players. I went home after the show...

    We just grabbed our tickets, I'll be flying up there just for the show. I really wish Gojira were opening this date and not Volbeat, but'll be drinking time. I'm an admitted A7X fan so I'm stoked they'll be there, as well. Can't wait to see the stage sets for these shows! My...
  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I have a Mesa/Boogie Rocket 44 that needs repairs. After 10 minutes or so, there is a loud hum. I do not believe that the hum is caused by my guitar's pickups, because they are two EMG 81s. Also, from time to time there is a loud pop when I turn on the standby switch or a loud pop when I turn...

    Jesus christ was he and his band on fire last night. There were a few points in the evening where I turned to Rob and mouthed, "are you seeing this???[/i] - in particular his tapped arpeggio stuff is just insanely clean, all without the benefit of a mute at the nut. If it wasn't already one in...

    Hey, I'm Dave! Just registered here. I currently go to Berklee for production, so if any of you are interested in that, just hit me up! I'm also on SSO and UG under this name, for those of you on either of those sites. I love gear a bit too much, in all honesty. I flip guitars like they're...

    Hey guys! I'm gonna be in Boston for an audition at Berklee very soon for a few days. Can you guys share some good places for less than 10 quid-per-person? I've noticed a few "(insert name)'s Roast Beef and Seafood", that seemed cool. Thanks!

    Recently Vacated Graves: True Zombie Metal did a 4-date mini-tour this past weekend, and we got some great pictures from our Boston show on Saturday. Here are some of my favorites: This one looks like I'm about to punch my guitar in its face :lol: Here's the link to the rest...

    Who will I see there?
  18. General Music Discussion
    Hey guys, I know there was a thread about this (not for Boston though) before but I have some differing reasons for this now. I'm wondering if anyone is going and would wanna meet up. Basically this past week I've been bed ridden with strep-like symptoms with such things as a fever of 103.2...

    Pretty good time. :yesway: One of the guys from work turned me onto Jimmy Herring a little while ago - I'm not big on the jam band scene, but he's easily one of the best I've heard in it. He's probably got the chops to do the shred/instrumental thing if he wanted, but fusion-y jamming is...
