  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    So I got my Gretsch Double Jet last month, and it's great, but the strings are catching in the nut a bit. The one good tech in my town moved away, so I took it to one of the recommended techs in the closest larger town an hour away, and he didn't really fix the issue (don't worry Justin, it...

  3. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So, a little backstory, I've been playing guitar for probably 15 years, but 99% of it has just been playing along with tabs, minus 4 or 5 years where I had more interest in getting drunk than learning guitar. Recently I got the same guitar bug I got when I was a teenager. I've been busy...
  4. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So, I've been playing for over 11 years now, and I still haven't fully memorized the notes on the fretboard. I've tried a bunch of times over the years, and I reached the point where I could rattle off the notes at each fret marker for each string (e.g. G A B C# on frets 3, 5, 7, and 9...
  5. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I hope some folks over here are interested! I'll post up some clips from the video on my instagram soon (/jongomm) jg :)

    I haven't say down and actually learned an entire song in a very long time. This first song I learned was Paranoid which is awesome for a beginner guitarist. I'm thinking about stairway to heaven because its a classic, its really long, its got a bunch of different parts to it and the solo isn't...
  7. Music: Other Instruments
    After years and years of playing bass like every other guitarist (i.e. with a pick and with no groove) I've decided to actually learn to play with my fingers. I attempted this a few months back and it failed miserably. Mainly because I was learning for the purposes of facilitating some...

    I started playing in a new arena rock cover band and this fucker came up on the set list. Some how I'd never learned this. Sure, I've learned the main riff and the Led Zep feeling riff but otherwise I had never really bit into it. After tonight; it's a hard mother fucker. I've always thought...
  9. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Without giving away too many details, I've got an audition on Thursday for a gigging band. I've learned the three audition songs they've given me and am perfectly comfortable with them, but am already thinking about learning the rest of the set-list as quickly as possible if this goes OK, as...
  10. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So sat down to my guitar lesson for the week and my teacher pulled out Slither by Velvet Revolver. I've never played a D tuned song and man was that a fun and easy riff to play! The chorus has a D, C, B chord progression that was fun to play as well. Most intriguing was that my teacher...
  11. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I know the basics, but I am looking for something that will give me insights into the details of doing setups. What out there is good?
  12. Music: Other Instruments
    I really don't know much about bass, and I'm wondering how he got this really nice sound. It's almost like a fretless at points. He was using a Spector 4 string of some kind on this. What I was wondering is, what sort of pickup would he have used (not brand, but what position on the body), and...

    I've got a week of annual leave, and I thought I'd have a crack at learning and playing through all of Xerath's II. I did actually learn Reform pt III from it last Thursday, and that gave me the idea of setting myself the challenge, so it's only nine of its tracks in a week, not all ten, but...
  14. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    As the title says, I'm a new-ish player. I've fooled around with guitar for a few years, not really putting much into it. I can follow some tabs and play a little bit, but nothing special. I've got the time to put in some serious effort, and I was wondering if I eventually plan on playing 7...

    i spent the last 11 months in the defense forces (my country has a military draft) and i'm back and hungry to learn guitar again... i'm rusty as hell and don't remember any songs for i haven't played for that time. I mostly learnt songs from tabs and didn't actually know much about what was...
  16. General Music Discussion
    I've never in all the years I've played ever cared much for playing solos or felt the need to learn any. I just wanted to be like Hetfield. I'm getting to the point now that I want to start handling some lead work. I've missed out on some opportunities to play with other people because of my...
