    I thought for sure he was going to end up with a signature Marshall or Friedman amp, so I'm surprised to see him with something like this. He definitely gets some killer tones out of the set-up and I'm still enough of a Vai fanboy to think "If he's digging this, it's got to be pretty decent." as...

    I was listening to Eric Prydz - Call on Me and I wanted to do something stupid simple and kind of cliche. I started with this I was about to side line it too. It is pop so you might not be into it.

  4. Music: Recording Studio
    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 went to Rick Graham's YouTube channel, and he has this video set as the one that plays on his home page. I had no idea he used to be overweight. I must have only seen recent videos. This is pretty nuts, and figured some of you fitness guys might dig this.
  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    replacing the Dimarzio Chopper in the neck spot with this. I like the chopper but it's a tad too hot for my tastes. Was checking out medium output pickups and figured I'd give the demon a shot. Waiting for my bridge pickup to arrive can't wait to get this installed.

    Well i have been trying to figure out the best way to power down my 120 mono.And i figured i could pull two tubes and compensate with ohms just like my 6505 head,but the tubes are set up in a square formation not in a line.

  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey. I have been playing guitar for a year or so (im still a noobie so don't get surprised if I sound really lame). I originally wanted to play lots of thrash metal, but found that most of the solos are alot harder than I thought. At some point I sorta lost interest and started playing my cheap...
