  1. Music: Recording Studio
    I have personally never used Guitar Pro, and I cannot really read tabs or notes. But I was just "hired" to record rhytm guitar + bass on 2 albums. I learn the riffs by ear, and sometimes just check the midi notes if I cannot decipher exactly what notes there are, and record instantly, part for...

    I'm interested in which metal guitarists you guys think are the best/craziest of the 80's until now. For mine pick I'd have to say Kiko Loureiro. His latest work in Megadeths Dystopia is absolutely amazing. The probably two dozen solos he played on that album are usually melodic, but at the same...

    There's a few cool ones in here, and a few that are just terrible (Leo playing some garbage 8-string chug nonsense is the worst, which is a shame because it would be cool to hear a modern ERG in that setup in actually capable hands). A lot of them default to EVH, ACDC or Hendrix style stuff, but...

  5. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    A buddy's girlfriend just dropped me a line via Facebook - she's buying him an acoustic guitar for Christmas, and was wondering if I could suggest a good instruction book for him to go along with it. He plays a bit, but not seriously - knows a few STP tunes, a few Nirvana tunes, and a few songs...

    I'm curious about this. We all have our heroes - in the music business and out - but within the music biz, which guitarist would you like to meet one day? They don't have to be "metal" guys. Edit: for the sake of the discussion, let's say they have to be alive. Mine: Ted Nugent **** Jones...

    What tube poweramps pair well with an axefx that won't destroy my wallet? Budget $600~. Also has to be able to run both mine, and my guitarist's input, comfortably. the Matrix sounds good, but I'm curious to experiment with something else, preferably in the Mesa family.

  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Those who do it because stringed instruments are a beautiful form of self expression that can convey abstract emotions and atmospheres that is also totally their best shot at getting laid, and those who do it because there is only one instrument that can mimic the sounds of warfare, dragons...

    Hi everyone ! I'm Elias, I've been playing guitar for about 10 years now, I play mostly Death Metal and I also do vocals. I'm glad I found this community so I can share my musical experiences, and maybe learn some new things especially about recording, I have issues getting a good sound on my...

    Listen to your lead playing. Are you the guy that pulls off a great sounding, cleanly played, tasteful run that sounds like it's about to summon Odin himself to give you a high five, only to SHIT ALL OVER IT at the end with horrendous, Eddie Money style 500-mph vibrato that sounds like a swarm...

    I saw you guys didn't have a thread for this, so I thought I'd make one. Jess Lewis is an amazing blues/jazz guitarist with one of the most velvety smooth tones I've ever heard and she has wicked good phrasing as well, display here in this video: Post your favorite/standout female guitarists...

    Hi guys, I've been writing some stuff recently which largely involves fusing metal/rock with brass/RnB/Randomness. But to help me bring these ideas to fruition I need other musicians. Specifically guitar and bass players with heavy and complex leanings. I'm actually a drummer but I've been...
