  1. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey, Got a used Schecter Damien. It was funny. Strings were about four feet off the fretboard, clueless on the floyd rose, neck off center. Anyway my fingers fall of the high E string. I have had a million guitars and typically played blues. I am ok with action fairly high. I have adjusted it...

    Now sure where this one should go, so its here now. My dad at xmas had a table saw accident and part of his middle finger on his fretting hand ended up being amputated. he's been playing for like 45+ years, and his biggest concern is playing again. does anyone have experience with this? he's...
  3. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So, not sure how to describe it but my nails kind of naturally wear 'long'. Like, most people I notice have a certain amount of meat that stick out past their nail but mine go all the way to the edge. I can only really play with my finger tips for MAYBE 2 or 3 days after I trim my nails, after...

    These are first reports, apparently based upon a recent radio interview, but Ivan Moody has allegedly said he and FFDP are parting ways. Maybe it's more reliable than the rumor that Moody was forming an offshoot band called "One Fisted Wife Punch," which turned into a clusterfuck of comments...

    My Jackson DKMG with satin black finish, is now only part satin and a lot of fingergrease black finish. It was my main live guitar for about 4 years and to be honest I didn't always take the time to properly wipe it clean after sweating all over it. So now some parts are looking shiny...
  6. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hi all, I've noticed a constant problem with my playing which is that I always end up fretting with the pad of my finger instead of the tip, which is part of what makes my playing sloppy and that really does not help for wanky prog sections. :lol: I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas about how...

    I really need to gt a grip on programming drums , and just came across this item. anyone here ever use it/try it? :scratch: It gets mixed reviews but it looks like it would make my drum programming hell a lot easier if it actually works like you think it would I have an M-audio Oxygen 49...

    Sorry it's posted here mods, but tapatalk sucks, and I couldn't post a new thread in health section. Anyhow, yesterday at work I crushed my middle finger between some metal. I won't be playing any guitar for a while. For those sick fucks on here, I snapped some photos. Here's one
  11. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Do any of you guys have any hints and tips as to how to get my ring finger a bit stronger? I've been trying to write mad things recently, and while that's working, it definitely highlighting that my ring finger is not as mobile or as strong as it needs to be. I'm talking less 'strength' as in...
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey guys, So I have been unable to play significantly for a few weeks now as a result of my left hand. The simple act of playing, no matter how "correct" my hand angle nor how light the strings/low the action causes the tendons on the back of my hand (particularly in the pinky and ring finger)...
  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Been trying to get my finger picking a bit more up to scratch lately as it's a technique I've always admired but never really been all that good at just because I don't practise it enough to be honest. I've seen so many good players use it to their advantage in so many different styles and...

    GODDAMMIT! :pissed: I've been playing guitar for like 12 years now and this is one of those things that has frustrated me since the very beginning. I hope I'm not the only one who has this problem. When my fingers are cold (which happens a lot in the winter, since the room in my apartment with...
  15. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Deciding to tackle this head on, as I know this is holding me back SEVERELY. I have discovered that I bring my hands too far off the fretboard when I play (kinda like a flailing fish), and that I really struggle when trying to use my ring and pinky finger. For example, say if I'm doing a run...
  16. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So during my first days of learning the guitar, I have a feeling like I have only two fingers on left hand and those fingers must be the shortest fingers in the world (I do have short fingers though). I have read about how "walking" develops certain muscles so that you can separate fingers more...

    Not bad, but I'm not liking the liberties they took with the vocals. Still, great song and hard to screw up no matter who covers it. Unless it's Brett Michaels.
