  2. Music: Other Instruments
    This is not good but I'm having so much fun and I'm aiming at being to play most of this song within a few weeks if I can practice often enough :)

    I hope you all enjoy. Me and my co-worker had fun making this after getting off from the Hospital. :lol: I also hope all of you are safe and making it during this time!
  4. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Does anyone have goals to hit this year for their playing ability? Mine is to finally become a good lead player and to tighten my rhythm playing back up and beyond what it was 10 years ago. I've been looking at the Painkiller solo and those little sweeps in the beginning are giving me serious...
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey dudes, haven't been active in a while but I wanted to share this with you all. Whole bunch has happened since I last posted; graduated college, got a job as a quality control engineer at a steel mill, moved to Ohio, got a cat, bought a car; but anyway. I had an old Peavey practice amp that...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    The PA we have in our practice space is woefully inadequate. Don't know the wattage, but we have like a 12 channel powered mixer with some small speakers. I really don't know anything about PA equipment. So I'd like to know, equipment wise what should we be looking at, at a minimum? We...
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So I was talking to my wife about setting up a rig upstairs and she said "No. You don't realize how loud you are in the basement." So I'm looking for an amp that has built in effects/tones, headphone jack and the ability to plug my android phone in to play backing tracks off of youtube. Don't...

    Been eyeballing the new Boss Katana series for the last year or so, finally worked up the energy to trade in my old Peavey Transformer in on a 50 watt. What better way to open a Katana? New amp day! by SR, on Flickr Boss katana by SR, on Flickr Not a lot of amp models in this (though there...
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Sadly, it looks like my Hot Rod + pedal board is making the move from the living room to the basement, as floor space is a hot commodity at our house right now. I'll be wall-mounting the guitars for both practical and aesthetic reasons (my wife is thrilled). I really like having my gear in the...
  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi guys! I've just committed to a new project and took all my "heavy rig", amp and cab, to our rehearsal space. So, I'm looking to buy something small and portable, to keep me busy, lay down some ideas and keep fiddling with the guitar, while at home, sitting on the couch, watching TV...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Title says it all. Looking for a combo amp, something that doesn't sound completely shitty. That's the number one concern. It would be nice if I could record with it and get some better tones than garage band offers. Bluetooth would be cool, but not a must. My budget is aboot ₽500 Canadian rubles
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I've been trying to find solid practice routines on guitar, but google always leads me to ads to sign up and pay for lessons. I want to find something I can do for at least an hour a day(but probably much more) that I can use for scales, timing(to metronome), chords etc to become a better...
  13. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Actually, it doesn't have to be instrument-specific. I have exactly 1 hour each day to play guitar (sometimes less). So I have to be very structured and intentional with my practice time if I want to make any progress at all. Basically, I'm looking for an app that does what I'm currently...
  14. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hello there, first time poster here, I'm just a bedroom musician, listens to Old School Heavy/ThrashMetal, Blues and dabbling on Jazz occasionally...pretty isolated here and nobody to jam or study with obviously. I'm just wondering if you guys can give some advice regarding the most efficient...
  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Been looking for a cab to leave at the practice room so I don't have to take two cabs to practice, as I don't want to leave both of my Zilla's there, and our other guitarist doesn't wanna leave his only cab there, which is a Mesa OS 412. This came up for sale locally for a massive £80. It's...

    Am planning on learning how to refinish bodies, so before i start doing a clear on an actual guitar I'd like to practice of some stuff where it doesn't matter if i mess it up. So I am looking for messed up guitar bodies, or necks, things which really are not going to matter if i mess up and...
  17. General Music Discussion
    Because this is the most often overlooked Testament album and I gave it a much needed spin for the first time in years. (Was the first Testament album I owned weirdly enough) One of the best predominantly mid tempo thrash releases out there. Completely forgot that tracks like Envy Life were the...

    And it was glorious. Even before I had the levels dialed in, I was over-toning the other guitar player with a behringerwhatinthefuck combo :lol: http://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/guitar-gear-discussion/62706-just-buy-5150-a.html 'ed. :metal:

    I joined a band recently that's going really well, and it's the first time I've had to drive for a long time, and it made me curious how far you guys drive on average. I'm driving about :50-1:30, depending on traffic, which sucks, because Chicago traffic on i90 is about as slow as it gets, but...
  20. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I've been playing 11 years nearly and its only this past year I have begun to practice like I did in the early days. I'm finding it really hard to focus on the practice rather than the playing. I wondered if maybe a change to my routine might help. Anyone any suggestions?
