  1. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I was wondering if someone should know classical guitar to know their instrument. Cause a musician told me that the best way to learn a instrument is to learn classical.

    Well this is fascinating.

    So, prior warning. This is the hardest commitment to tone you will ever make, because it is gross as fuck, but it's a legitimate technique, and if you want "that tone" you have to do it. I've done it twice before for classical and abandoned it for nastiness, but once you get them to the point...

    I cannot wait for this to come out! :metal: I am really hoping this album has the elements of Classic Symphony X with the new sound of Symphony X. Which is what it sounds like it is headed towards.

    The first piece sounds like he should have been playing in the Casino of Ocean's 11. Haha. Tony is truly an amazing musician.

    Just looking at that second fretboard makes my head hurt, although it sounds gorgeous.
  7. Music: Recording Studio
    Sorry but I know nothing about recording classical guitar. He loves his ipad. He has been recording himself playing using facetime. Surely there is a way to record with better quality than this. What would you suggest? Is there a mic plus interface plus app combo that would do the trick?

    The other day I was searching Symphony X live videos and I came across this video of Michael Pinella playing with his nephew, Chris Pinella (Trans-Siberian Orchestra) and he has a solo in the middle of one of his sets and it is absolutely gorgeous! Pinella is an underrated pianist and...

    Okay so my dad owns a barebones entry level guitar. Being frugal he would never buy something better despite playing for over 50 years. So that said I'd like to learn a bit about what companies and models and features do people look for? I would be most interested in finding out which ones...

    Hello all, I was writing an etude for lessons and I thought I would share it. It is pretty much an alternate picking etude that I wrote in a "classical" style, so the picking is kind of all over the place, which makes it fun. Video here: Tabs attached. Enjoy!

    Saw this on Guitar World's website. I'd love to be able to play stuff like this. If it's too slow for you, skip ahead to around 5:41 or so.

    What's good? Bear in mind that this is for classical-style guitar rather than flamenco, so I'm probably not after a super-high tension set.

    I just discovered this guy randomly on youtube, don't know if you guys know about him and thought I'd share.

    Iron Maiden Acoustic - Aces High - YouTube Holy shit, this is actually pretty badass
  15. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Ok, bit of a long story, but the gist is my Romanian metalhead friend wants to get two friends of hers back in Romania Rocksmith for Christmas, since they've Lready mastered Guitar Hero and she'd kind of like them to actually learn something useful from it. Problem is, they only own a classical...
  16. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hey guys, so during my trip to Iraq I had the chance to play with some really great classical guitar players. This made me really interested in picking up the instrument and learning my self. What i did notice are the necks are HUGE and the amount of playable frets stops at around 12. I am...

    Awesome. Agree.
  18. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    As the title says, I have the itch to learn something nifty and classical, as long as it's not fucking Canon in D. :lol: My fingerstyle is pretty good, and I'd like to learn something that can be used as a "party favor" - weddings, office parties, shit like that, something recognizable, but...

    I bought a Tyr album when I went to their concert, and THIS little gem is on it! It blew my mind to hear this, so I had to share. Fucking killer! If I could play like this, I'd die happy!
  20. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Has anyone else messed around with this sort of thing, using the humble piece of plastic to fake classical fingerstyle technique? Good examples would be Greg Howe's classical-sounding pieces like 'Desiderata' or Van Halen's 'Little Guitars' intro, where they pick notes on the high strings while...
