    I had a specific thread in mind, but it's bass-centric, and I think I saw a tumbleweed blow by in the bass section of this site. So share times you unlearned a technique you had either been doing wrong or whatever. Interesting topic. First time I've tried doing it for this, total bitch, when...

    Valhalla awaits bitches. Never trust a cable rowing machine. Those are for pussies. As a kayaker myself. Those are nothing like it (though kayaking is a different technique of paddling). (The pesky 600 pound Grizzly Bear is still in the area and I miss sunlight.)

  4. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Pics first, explanation later: This is Neil, my new 2000 model RG520QS!!! My first ever project using my new paint technique i'm calling "scrape painting"! I originally planned on swirling this guitar (as i am prone to doing), but followed a wild hair that took me somewhere completely...
  5. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey guys, Lately I've noticed how far away my pinky finger gets from the fretboard while riffing with index, middle and ring finger. I just recorded a quick clip of a riff idea that clearly shows my problem and I was wondering if there are any tips to keep my pinky closer to the fretboard...
  6. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I am self taught and have been recently teaching myself music theory and to correctly do many techniques as well as become more familiar with all of the notes on the fretboard. Jamplay.com, youtube, Barret Tagliarinos fretboard workbook, and other forums and such have given me many different...

  8. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    In this video, you're going to learn how to get down and dirty with that thumb of yours! I've been getting requests to do a video lesson on the Tosin Abasi/Javier Reyes/Animals as Leaders-style guitar slapping/thumping thing for a long time now. There are a lot of misconceptions about this...
  9. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Been trying to get my finger picking a bit more up to scratch lately as it's a technique I've always admired but never really been all that good at just because I don't practise it enough to be honest. I've seen so many good players use it to their advantage in so many different styles and...
  10. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Alright, so admittedly I'm not the most gifted of players, and now that A. school is ending, and B. I've been bringing a guitar to work to practice on lunch instead of playing video games, I want to get better. A problem I've noticed is that my picking arm basically tenses up, to the point...
  11. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey guys, I've been having a lot of trouble getting my sweeps up to the speed I want them to do be at. I figure somethings probably wrong with my technique. I threw together a video really quickly (full of that juicy sloppy sloppy), hopefully there's something I'm doing wrong so that I can...
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I still find it really fascinating to watch close-ups of this guy's playing, just because there are so many elements in his technique which ought to be recipes for disaster, but actually work in practice. It's really interesting to see how he often descends through arpeggios with...

    Quite an interesting sound. Recommend this guy's album...
  14. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hi guys, I hope I'm not the only one with this problem and that you can give me some advice regarding my situation. I'm having problems doing fast alternate picking (metal rhythm) and I'm thinking that my right hand technique might be the problem. So i see a lot of people holding their pick with...
  15. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Introduction: I've been playing a little over 6 years now, September of 2004 was when I started playing guitar. Nothing super interesting happened for a majority of the time. Thrash started it for me; Metallica, Pantera, etc. and then I moved to Death Metal, and I'm into Black Metal now, as...
  16. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    This is gonna be a long post as I am gonna try to analyze my playing. I'll break it up into sections so it will be easier for everyone. I'm sure some of the stuff I'm gonna ask can be found on the forum but I feel like it's better if I make one thread for everything rather than look around and...
  17. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey guys, I thought it would be a cool thread idea if we stated our near term technique goals so that we can hold each other accountable for meeting them. So here are my two goals that I plan to accomplish (with videos) by the end of the month: 1) 16th note exercise (from Petrucci's rock...

  19. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey guys, So I started this on ss.org, didn't take on too well, but I noticed both here and there, there are a lot of people posting videos and asking for technique help. I figured it would be wise to make a thread were everyone can post vids and get their technique examined. There are some...
