    Hello everyone. This is my first time using this site. But the reason for me being here is this. I have a schecter apocalypse c1 fr s and its great. So is the floyd. I understand it well enough to change my own strings and adjust action/truss rod when needed. When I press the whammy bar down to...

    I've had both LTE and LTE 2 albums in heavy rotation these last couple of weeks. JPM Petrucci > HULK TROOCHI Haired Jordan > Unhaired Jordan

    I've had a few of these through my workshop in the last couple of years, and I fucking hate them. It's fine if the customer wants it blocked, but to have it fully floating with anything higher than 9s is practically impossible. I've fitted them with 10s in standard for a guy once, and that was...
  4. General Music Discussion inspired by Beastie Boys Intergalactic. The 'another dimension, another dimension...' bit. The rhythm there is the same as the LTE song's main riff. Did a quick search, and there's an old Portnoy interview, in which he says he wrote it after hearing that BB song. The More You Know!

    I don't know if I've seen this performance before, but if I have, it wasn't from this camera. This dude had an amazing spot at the show, and Petrucci was absolutely on point, even with his shirt tucked in! The audience are pretty awesome around the camera man, going nuts on the crazy parts...
  6. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey guys - haven't posted in a while, but I figured I'd share this tab I've been working on for the past 4-5 weeks (on and off). There are still a few parts that need adjusting, but this is probably the best GuitarPro tab you'll find, at least in the mainstream tab site circulation. MG...

    I busted out my acoustic, and noticed the action was cheech and chong high. the body is noticeably bowed in where the neck hits. I've loosened the string tension for now to let it rest. Who's the guru that knows the fix? pics if needed.

    Jesus, Eddie. WTF did Michael Anthony do to you? I can kinda understand the friction between Diamond Dave and Eddie but.. Billboard Interview
  9. Music: Recording Studio
    Hi folks, I wanted to share this cover I put together in the past few months... Liquid Tension Experiment's Acid Rain. I recorded the whole thing (minus the improvised solos) from scratch, the bass, drums and keyboards are sequenced, the guitars is me and the Axe FX II straight into the...

    I putted Ernie ball 9 - 46 to my Jackson rx10d randy rhoads with floyd rose on B standard tuning. The strings have really low tension. Advantages: -The fingers need really low strength to press the fret, this gives more speed -Can easily do bendings -Even 7 semitone bendings are easy :scream...

    What the fucking fuck, Fender. The hole where a normal Fender/Tele style bullet truss rod would be is filled in, no side truss adjustment, and there's just what's pictured where you seemingly need to remove the neck. :pissed: Help pl0x
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So recently(3 months ago?) I converted from Ernie Balls to D'addarios. They just sound better to me. But i'v noticed that in the 7 string sets, the low B string is lower tension than the other wound strings. And again, in the 6 string sets the low E is lower tension than the other wound...

    I had kind of a "duh" moment yesterday - I love the Wilkinson on my strat, but have had it flush against the body for dive only operation for a couple years now, and I found that I never really used it. I had been toying with the idea of floating it again, but at least until I stop with the...

    Maybe this seems like a Noob question, but as long as I can remember, all my guitars have the "arrow" configuration for the tremolo springs Bridge \|/ plate I'm trying now a guitar that has same string gauge, same tuning, same scale, same everything, except the spring configuration...

    ok so there used to be this great string tension site that had a java app that you could basically calc a bunch of different string gauges with. It seems to have disappeared so what is a good calculator to use?

    DAddarioFretted Strings » Electric Strings » XL Nickel Round Wound » EXL111 Balanced Regular Light 10-46 Only one set for now but it is cool to see a manufacturer offer something like this.
  17. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I have a Schecter on the way (total impulse buy :lol:) and to be honest I don't like the extra tension for my style of playing, and I don't like 09s either. I've been a D'addario user for a long time and I'm quite happy with them, so I haven't experimented much with strings. So I thought about...
