  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So the rhythm/clean channel of my IRT Studio is suddenly very quiet (like I have to turn the volume to 10 to hear anything). However, the lead channel works perfectly I tried swapping tubes back and forth, but that didn't change anything. Any ideas what it could be and if it could be something...

    Which metal bands would you recommend for a beginner/intermediate rhythm player to tackle? I've done a lot of Metallica and Black Sabbath rhythm guitar stuff (not always up to full speed). Just looking for bands that have lots of cool rhythm guitar work and nothing too technical (I usually get...
  4. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hi, this is Simon Revill. I've just published a free to download eBook for guitarists who are interested in metal guitar lessons. It's called Metal Rhythm Guitar Starter Guide. I've published the book directly on my site in a series of posts. Each chapter includes guitar tab, notation, chord...

    This has probably already been done to death, but searching didn't bring up something specific to rhythm, other than than this bit of hilarity (especially the "LOL you're gonna give up so easily huh? You need thicker skin to be around metalheads bro." comment). :lol: Anyway, I love checking...
  6. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I wired the Spectrum so that the middle position of the switch was the neck pickup, so that position 2 (or 4, depends on which way you are going) is neck and bridge and it sounds better for the kind of stuff I play than pretty much all the humbucker guitars I've ever had. The Explorer beats it...

    My friend linked me this on youtube, and I was like well this is going to be horrible.... but it's pretty fucking good, not terrible, nothing ground breaking. But solid leads and decent rhythm. Good power metal vocals.
  10. General Music Discussion
    I'm looking for something different to Spotify at work tonight. An evil prog if there is such a thing. I dont need e-chugga time-sig prog, but I'm looking for something that gets adventurous with both rhythm and melody/harmony. An evil steve vai for example. It doesnt have to have a virtuoso...

    I did this yesterday. It's taken about 6 days to learn this. Very frustrating at times, trying to work out all the variations. And it's quite a challenge to pull off in one go. This was the first take, so I'm pretty pleased with how few mistakes I made. I was going to do a second take of...
  13. Music: Recording Studio
    You know the score, same format as the rectifier vid, but a slightly different flavour, and some lead tones this time! \,,/
  14. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Started video one of this series this weekend and it is awesome, at least to me. I'm new to guitar and want to play metal rhythm and I really like the way Andy James plays and instructs. If anyone in the states is interested and you do not want to order from Licklibrary.com in the U.k. (don't...
  15. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    And I'm finally man enough to admit it. :lol: My pride has taken a back seat and I know without a doubt that I need help improving. Let me put it this way... If you were to put me in a band atmosphere right now, with a guitar in hand, I'd have no idea where to start. I'd probably jump to the...
  16. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I can play a lot of rhythms pretty well - but one thing I constantly struggle with is developing my timing on the low-e galloping or palm muted fast 16th's at pace. I think I know what most of you are saying.."Oh for fucks sake progrmr quit being a pussy and play that shit...it's easy!!" I...

  18. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So recently I'm getting into doing metal covers of pop songs and video game music. But for some reason the only thing I can really think of to do for the rhythm is chugging palm muted chords. I mean, it works, but there's gotta be something else out there right? Why can I not think of...
  19. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey Board, I just joined here, and I did not see the "Introduce yourself" section I see on many forums. My apologies if I missed it. I want some advice on building badass metal rhythm chops, really fast. My deal is, I have been a drummer for 17 years. i have dabbled in guitar on and off most...
