  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Right now I'm trying to get my eyes off Ibanez, Jackson, ESP etc and look for something else. Bacchus has my attention right now, which seems like almost nobody knows about (except seems decently popular in Asia), but they seem to have a very good reputation about their basses. The guitars...

    Iv been eyeballing a guitar that has a neck crack repair. I don't have any experience with neck breaks or how the repairs hold up. And granted, not all repairs are the same. But what are your experiences? Here is a pic of the neck I'm talking about and the owner said the previous owner repaired...

    This feels kind of fucking embarresing in a Running Wild at Wacken 2009 kind of way; Rock N Rolf announced that Running Wild quits, and then a year or so later he's back with a new album. It wasn't so much the fact that the white-black strat I've looked forward to for several years was a...

    I'm tired of being a fucking asocial lunatic bitching about shit that doesn't even matter in the real world RGhoarder is 100% right and I should just shut the fuck up. I just sit in my apartment all day long playing my shitty guitars, or rage on the internet like a retard, I dont spend enough...

    My Ibanez soundtank delay pedal just doesn't have the versatility I want. I think I've fiddled with it about all I can. I want one that can do the short repeat and the timed out delays for that big hairspray sound. Most delay pedals I find break the bank and maybe I should just give up, but...
  6. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Title says it all. This is my first post on a forum I should have joined long ago. Since returning I have noticed gaps in my technique, some bad habits, things i forgot and just things I never learned. I'm self tought and used to love playing thrash such as evile, metallica and megadeth and...
  7. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    If I had the Photoshop skills, this would be a FAIL! pic. I lost my calluses after two breaks away from the instrument, the first of one week, then one of two weeks, with just a couple of hours playing in between. I did this after five days back playing daily again, bending to the high E on the...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    The past two weeks the sound has been cutting out while playing my Mesa Mini Rectifier head. By cutting out, I mean it goes from great sound to a muffled muted sound, randomly for no reason. I had changed the power tubes about 4 months ago, I play 60-90 min a day and the amp stays in the...

    Awesome Games Done Quick This is a bunch of people who are experts at "speedrunning" games (getting through them as fast as possible, sometimes completely glitching/breaking the game in order to do so). They do a bi-yearly charity stream for a full week, 24/7, in which they have people stream...

    Hey! We are just finishing our first 100% DIY EP so I would like to share with you the first results. Hope you like it!
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I just moved some Celestion V30s from the cab I was using to another and then replaced them with brand new ones. I was ready to hear if the need to break them in was a real issue. As soon as I played through the new speakers it was confirmed immediately. Day 1. First I played at low volume at...

    Good ol' Microsoft. They pushed out an update today that broke many people's mail database. The kicker is, the update apparently updates the software, but not your database, and then tells you that you can't repair your broken mail Identity because the database is an older version (since you...

  14. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hi, this is my first real post on this forum. Hopefully this is the right forum for this. I started studying guitar when I was in 5th grade (1991). I got a used Ibanez EX (made in Korea) and an amp and began taking guitar lessons from this guy in town. I learned to read music, learned the...
  15. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey! I know chords in general, bar chords, power chords, the blues scale, the pentatonic scale, and I recently learned some new scales called Aeolian, Lydian and Harmonic Minor. The problem is that I can't break out of the scales, and create repetitive and forced... Also when I play chords, be...

    Have you guys had a chance to listen to the new track yet? If not it can be found here: MetalSucks Blog Archive EXCLUSIVE: AFTER THE BURIAL, "BREAD CRUMBS AND WHITE STONES" I really digg it, the lead playing reminds me of Kai Hansen's melodies in Gamma Ray; it has that "happy power metal"...
