  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Saw this ad on The Verge. It's $30 and boasts "more electronic complexity than most guitar amps or pedals". It seems a little thick for practical use.... https://www.fireflypick.com/ Apparently suitable for those flanger/phaser drenched "heavy rhythm tones". The battery is also capable of...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Just realized I posted this in the wrong forum... my apologies. Considering adding SD Invaders (SH-6 & 8) to a newly purchased guitar. There is a lot of fuzz, buzz, etc. When replacing the pick ups, will it help to swap out any other items to reduce unwanted noise? Pic provided for your...

    So something I've always noticed about this amp is that the pick attack is there to the point where it's pretty much a nuisance. I hear it all the time, no matter how I angle my pick, no matter how I adjust the treble or anything, and I've tried different types of picks. It typically happens...

    Hello everyone, Pretty stupid questions. Should I upload a cover to YouTube of a song without knowing how to properly pick/strum? Will I just get roasted out of oblivion for playing like a tard? Even if the cover is mostly accurate note/tonewise? (I am not perfect) :( To elaborate, I pick with...

    Saw this in my local GC the other day. I'd been looking for a simple amp, capable of high gain but not married to it. There were a couple of Orange Rockerverb heads in the area but the guys wanted more for them than I wanted to pay and one of them was a 100 which was more amp than I was...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So my axeFX & vader 2x12 live at a practice space now and I'm trying to figure out a good rig for the house. I only want a 1x12, looking for solid state with focus on the high-gain quality but ability to do some sort of clean. Don't really care about footswitch capabilities or anything like...

    Thanks to James for showing me what InTune picks can do for this one. I was quite impressed with the quality of James' Spine Of Glass picks so I ordered my own for my band, Liquid Sky Only took a couple of weeks to get here too :yesway:

    Used S7G SOLAR 7 CST Spalted Maple Solid Body Electric Guitar Spalted Maple | Guitar Center At the local GC in town, I haven't played it and I know Strictly 7 QC and practices were....questionable to put it lightly, but for the price I'd definitely consider it. This could also serve as a PSA...

    Incredible natural acoustics and verb.
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi all. I'm playing electric for about 1 year. But I still can't find my favorite pick yet. I've almost all kind of Dunlop ones (tortex,ultex,gator,jazz,stubby). Each one has it's own pros and cons, and I can't choose one to be my daily pick. I know it's a silly thread and question but do you...
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Okay so I'm really struggling with how to do pick harmonics. Some how my pick and thumb are supposed to touch the string but I just don't get it. Are there videos or tips that you guys can please recommend? For a novice guitar player this Bon Jovi song is a great considilation of a number of...
  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey chums! One of the questions I get asked the most is where I buy my shampoo and conditioner. Beyond that, the second most asked question I get is "what kind of picks do Uncle Ben like??"! To answer that question, I decided to start a new pick review series where I share with you my love of...

    2001 (I think) Gibson Les Paul 1968 reissue black beauty picked it up for $1985 from Todd Ingram from the band King Giant, great guy loves to talk music and gear. And finally with the pick guard off, new pickups coming and going to have a pro shave the neck because it is huge.....
  15. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Got this in trade from Beard maybe two years ago. Great bass - very easy to play, sounds absolutely thunderous in the low end, and looks awesome. It's in pretty good shape too - some fretwear, but not much in the way of cosmetic blemishes that I can recall. I've been going back and forth on...

    Seems last gen we had a lot of guys here on Forza 3 and 4, but I haven't seen anything pop up for these types of games lately? Anyone playing anything this gen? Forza 5, Horizon? I picked up Driveclub back when it came out and Project Cars a couple of weeks ago. DC was terrible in November...
  17. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I imagine this has to be a technique thing, because I can pluck the string as hard as I want with my thumb, and there's no buzz here. However, when using pretty much any pick, I get a bit of buzz, however it's not generally audible through the speaker, usually. What am I doing wrong here? See...
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Has anyone ever purchased a guitar from this site? I've some good reviews and some bad reviews of some of the guitars. I understand the hardware may not be as good as the signature model, but the money you save would allow the purchase of upgrades to say tuners and pick ups and what not. I...

    I'm opening a games store in the next few months and am trying to select my product range. The store is your typical table top gaming establishment, so CCG, TTRPG, board games, card games, tabletop warfare etc etc. I'm just seeing if anyone here has played anything awesome they'd recommend I...
