  5. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Oddly, for a guy who plays as much legato as I do, this is something I've always struggled with. I don't have a very wide stretch there - I've mostly compensated by angling my hand a little bit, probably similar to classical position on the violin or cello. Is that normal? Or can most of you...
  6. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So we all get calluses on our finger tips but, I always get mine on the right hand side looking down at them in playing position. Basically I'm wondering is it a bad thing to be mainly playing with my fingers tilted towards the pickups. I think it's something I see steve vai doing and hence when...

    There is something going on in the At The Gates Camp. Haven't really decided whether I want new music from them or not but luckily their old stuff will still exist. I went to see them a couple of weeks ago and they seemed as vital as ever though, so I will keep my hopes up!
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Scored a cheap 3 p'up faded flying v this weekend and should get it early this week. It has a 490T and two 490R alnico's fitted with a six way rotary switch. Was thinking of ripping 'em out and going ceramic. Have an Explorer with 500T and 496R ceramics and get on with those ok. Are the...

  11. Music: Recording Studio
    Full track of the clip I posted the other day (Thrash, AxeFX 4, firmware ∞, fingers) Just jumping on the AxeFX post-overload hate. :fawk: Anyway, some of you will have heard the outtro to this track already as I posted it up the other day, but it has changed slightly, and has a solo, and...

    I wish I could link what they look like, but I don't recall the name and I don't have a guitar rag with me at the moment. They look to be rubber bands that connect all four fingers together to minimize excessive movement on the fretting hand. The reason I ask is because the number one...

    I figured some of you needed a primer on real shoes... Asolo Light Hikers, one of the ritziest brands for hiking shoes out there. I usually wear Salomon trail runners but my current pair is pretty beat and I was in the market for replacements. Dropped by the Sierra Trading Post outlet in...

    ...among other things :lol: This is technically an article on recording, but it's on the guitar gear side of recording mainly, so I figured it would fit best here. GGGarth Richardson: Justin Bieber Has Nothing That My Kids Will Talk About | Interviews @ Ultimate-Guitar.Com
  15. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    If I'm practicing, and thinking of playing a certain scale, I usually don't have a problem with this - but when I improv stuff, or am just shredding, my fingers get lazy. If I'm playing a basic 3nps pattern, my fingers want to keep doing the same thing when I go up and down a string. Eg: If I'm...

  18. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    To start, a few years ago I had a condition that made me lose about 60% of the feeling in my right arm and leg. I have since been getting it mostly back due to nerves reconnecting. The point is, I've spent 4 years playing bass with a pick instead of with my fingers. Now, I'm back to using my...
  19. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Many of you will know I want a CST and a B7, what few of you know is I was offered both. I am still waiting for a price for the CST but this is about the B7. Thom (Uber Mega) recently contacted me and let me know that he might let his go and asked if I was keen. Well hell yeah I was :D, he said...
