    Someone go get this before I commit a cruel act against my wallet: There's also a MTM1 but with the dreadful Inlay...
  2. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Good companions, well and wanted to take off the flight of the bumblebee so I decided that I did not have enough speed to play this song so I decided to look for exercises to increase my speed, well then after a few months practicing and practicing these exercises when returning to the song...
  3. Music: Other Instruments
    I got this keyboard for cheap and decided to try it out, apparently it did stuff I never knew keyboards could do... This might be obvious for others, but I never knew you could sequence SEVERAL insturments at once! Complete news to me, even tho it makes total sense. So I turned the first...

    Thats right... that one.... According to The Hollywood Reporter, KISS frontman Gene Simmons filed an application Friday for a trademark on the so-called "devil's horns" hand gesture. Simmons claims in the filing that the hand gesture was first used in commerce November 14, 1974 - a date that...
  5. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey Shredi Knights! Uncle Ben here is starting 2016 off right with a brand new episode of This is Why You Suck at Guitar. I've gotten a lot of requests for how to get your hands in sync with each other, which is a problem that plagues a LOT of guitarists. It seems like a lot of dudes reach a...

    This just looks cartoonish.
  7. Music: Recording Studio
    Hi all, Well, I am in the Bay Area for a few months and was wondering if someone would be so kind as to help me out with VSTs? Despite reading many threads and checking out lots of youtube videos, my computer illiterateness is not helping and I am unable to get a good sound using VSTs and...
  8. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I've had this guitar since I was a kid. I haven't played the guitar in a while and wanted to do something to freshen it up and make it interesting again. Not everyone remembers the Ibanez EX, and it was a lower-end model, but I always loved the sharp-but-rounded shape to it which was a unique...

    How Well Can You Hear Audio Quality? : The Record : NPR A coworker sent me this. On one hand, I went 2 for 6. On the other, I was listening on my computer on a set of $20 earbuds, and two of the ones I got wrong, I had rejected th 128kbps pretty quickly and chose the 320 over the .wav. I'll...
  10. General Music Discussion
    I used to think they both went hand in hand, but it's pretty obvious that from an industry standpoint they are mutually exclusive. There seem to be two pretty distinct types of musicians; ones that love creating music, and ones that love performing. I'm not suggesting that one is better or...
  11. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    A guitar teacher once told me to put my hands under hot water for a while before playing as a means to (literally) warm up. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Now, not so much. First, makes the fretting fingertips soft (not good for bending). Any thoughts on the matter?
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hopefully posting the link to the photo album - jaxnrr1's Album: JTM-45+ build will be less obnoxious than waiting for all of the pics (19) to load. Backstory: I dig old Marshalls. In my opinion, the modern Marshall tone is still outdated and has reached irrelevancy. The...
  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I'm playing classical guitar, with 5 hours of practice a day. Recently I've been practicing some etudes with some "crazy" chords. The problem is that after some days of practice, my fretting hand gets so tired that I ain't able to practice properly, the only solution I found is rest some days...

  16. General Music Discussion
    Here's a Steve Vai tune I recorded a few weeks ago for a bit of fun. It's rough, but I like it... Happy New Year to you all when it comes, may 2014 be filled with crap for all of you. :D

  19. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    OK this one is driving me nuts, and I couldn't seem to find any threads on it. Lets say you are playing a quick palm muted 2 string F# power chord. I am usually inclined to play these with my first and fourth finger using the second and third to help dampen after the chord is played. My...
