  1. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I'm curious to know what the thought process behind it is. One of my goals recently with music was to be able to play what I hear in my head. Specifically melodies and the chord progression behind it. I began playing piano a year ago and taking courses for piano at daytona state college. In the...

    I just noticed that my stupid Ibanez bass have the nut slightly away from the fretboard edge I remember I had to raise it a bit a while ago to prevent buzzing I didn't do anything with it for a while because I thought I had no more super glue at home, but I actually found a brand new super...

    A few days ago, I got the bug to try to see if I could get close to John Petrucci's tone in a stem I found on YouTube for On The Backs of Angels. The tone in that stem is really similar to the awesome Crunch channel tone Petrucci gets in the Proto Playthrough video, so I used the settings Mesa...

    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...
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I think I'm going to try this after tonight's gig. After playing at home volumes I think the 81 might be a little too tight/thin for my RG550 (which is only tuned half a step down) but the true test will be tonight when I have my rig roaring behind me so I can truly 'feel' it. I love the EMG 81...

    I was pretty close to pulling the trigger on a local hardtail strat in a buddy of mine's shop, but then my wife's car needed the same cost in repairs. :lol: (No, wait, :() So, I think I'll instead take some time to sell off some things so that I can just order what I think I really want; that...

    Hi folks! Here's a test I recently did, I'm trying to get as close as possible to an EVH 5150III 100W head that has been recently used to reamp guitars for my band. Guitar used is a Bernie Rico Jr Hesperian 8 string with BKP Aftermaths. Original chain consists of TS808 OD -> EVH 5150III Head...

    For a number of technical reasons I won't bore you I've always tracked the S&P500 over the Down Jones Industrial Average as my preferred metric of the American stock market and in turn the overall economy, so for me this is fairly big news that the S&P looks like it may close above its prior...

    Didn't want to derail the MR thread Dave started; but for you Symphony X fans check out Adagio (from France) guitarists Stephan Forté new solo album. It has completely blown me away (far more then anything Adagio released IMO). Stephan Forté - De Praestigiis Daemonum - YouTube
