    So does the RME Fireface 800 still hold up in terms of LATENCY and stuff??? They are being sold about 1/4 of the price of new RME UFX II for USB. My laptop doesn't have Firewire but I assume I could connect it with this adatper to USB? Any suggestionss??

    A couple months ago, I bought my first "full fledged," if you will, Gibson Les Paul - a new, 2016 Traditional. I was coming out of a necessitated gear purge and the price, GAS, the old-school nature of the animal, and probably a healthy ladle of "Err Mah Gerd Les Paul," were all components in...

    Okay I've always had this problem and now that I am taking lessons and trying to practice regularly I am noticing it more and more. Is it a muscle training thing and you just have to get used to it? I am playing my Ibanez rg and the opening riff to Iron Man. This is further up the neck than...

    I wanna order a tremel-no but I'm not sure which one I should get. The edge in my rg550 has a screwed down bar over the springs that hold them in the holes. Obviously the pin stremel-no would require it being inserted in one of the screw, which probably is too big for the pin and is going to...

    Holy fucking hell. :holy: I mean, I knew the neck and middle were good, but... 1) Now they're through proper 250k volume and tone pots, darkening and smoothing them a hair, and 2) now they have an awesome, awesome, awesome bridge singlecoil to compliment them. Thick, powerful, and clear...

    I know gold wears off pretty quick, black-chrome/cosmo black wears off if you even look at it, and chrome looks the same forever, but how well does nickel hold up? :scratch: I'm trying to decide between chrome and nickel for a new bridge...

    Man - I'm trying to change the way I hold the pick and am having a heck of a time. I've always held the pick with vertical slant. Most "how to hold a pick" video lessons on YT show the player holding the pic slanted forward/down...I hold it slanted back/up. I've noticed that as I've tried to...

    I'm watching a video of Marty Friedman and he holds his picking hand completely differently from anything I've ever seen. How do you YOU hold your picking hand? Also, do you extend your last 3 fingers and if so, do you place them on the body below the strings?

    I project I'll be one of three people who gives a fuck, but I'm spinning "Heaven is Whenever" and it's fucking awesome. "(..and now it seems to me) Like distance doesn't equal rate and time no more. It's like gravity doesn't apply. Everything sparkles, and it feels like we're on wheels. It...

    First Listen: The Hold Steady, 'Heaven Is Whenever' : NPR I'm a bit biased as I absolutely love these guys, but so far (I'm halfway through) this is pretty damned good. If nothing else, the opener, "Sweet Part of the City," is a hell of a departure, but incredible.
