    Just out
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'd be interested to hear others' unpopular opinions in this thread. Here's a few of mine to get us started: I don't like this new wave of overpriced overdrive pedals that simply pop out and accentuate the 1.6 KHz frequency. (Grind, Horizon Drive, 33, etc.) - I personally don't think they sound...

    Fuck... listening to this I'm getting transported to 30+ years into the past THE TROOPS OF DOOM, the new Brazilian band featuring former SEPULTURA guitarist Jairo "Tormentor" Guedz, has released the official music video for the song "The Confessional". The track is taken from THE TROOPS OF...
  4. Music: Recording Studio
    In these troubled times, what the world needs more than anything is another album of me improvising a bunch of random guitar shit. I'm happy to oblige! On my week off, I'm recording a bunch of free improvisation instrumentals for a new Council of One album, Agenda. Here's the link to the album...

    I keep justify trying to get rid of this record, but I can't. It's just too exciting, I feel like more people need to know about it. Every song is super dynamic, just when you think it can't get more horrible, it does. You are just rooting for the band the whole time, like, "Please just stick...
  6. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I'm not playing these enough; I'd like to keep these in the MG family if possible, sent to homes that will love them. Particularly, if someone has a need for some shred but is hit hard by these times financially, let me know and we can work something out for packing/shipping costs (or for free)...
  7. Music: Recording Studio
    Ive been using a Steinberg UR12 for the last 5 years or so, it's what I started with when I first got into recording. But over that time I think my "studio" has out grown it and it's time to upgrade. When I got it I never thought I'd need more then 1 channel. I only wanted to be able to record...

    ...if you like the recessed variety, this looks pretty cool: https://reverb.com/item/24981313-tone-vise-pitch-shifter-for-floyd-rose-tremolos-black Our own Mr. Crooks is using one of these to stabilize his Floyd to drop to D on that 7 string Rhoads he doesn't post enough pictures of...

    This record just got streamed today. These guys rule hard. They're from vancouver. I toured with them. I love each and every one of them. Listen to this shit. It's real fuckin good. Do you like shit thats heavier than a real heavy thing? Give er a fuckin' go, bud. Do you like to hang out in...

  11. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Finally snagged one after years of wanting one. Only played it for a little while after I restrung it last night, but it seems to live up to the hype so far.
  12. Computers, Electronics, Gaming & IT
    I've been using the same old office chair for 6-1/2 years now. Now I'm working from home a lot more, I wanted something that actually had all of its wheels, and wasn't falling apart. This thing is comfy as fuck and well worth the nearly £300 it cost.
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Thought of sharing this... I hope I am not crossing any rules. Three years ago or so, I had an idea of making a guitar play bass lines at the same time so I can jam with my son who was learning to play drums at the time. It was boring jamming without a bass player. I now call the guitar...

    BUY IT OR FOREVER BE FALSE.
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Pretty sure I must have specc'd this in a past life. https://reverb.com/item/23083203-jackson-firebird-custom-shop-1988-custom-grafics This guitar has everything. A bald eagle. Flames. A reverse headstock. The ultra rare zig zag inlays. The inexplicable and weirdly offputting 12th feet...

    The Headless Children is the best W.A.S.P. album, even if most people think the debut is for fashionability reasons. This song has everything, awesome drums, awesome bass, tasteful guitar shit during the verses, call and response, gang vocals. I don't know if it's the essential W.A.S.P. album...
  17. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So now that I built a pedalboard and I re-did the Babs-Cab with fucking sick black hardware, Mesa Track Locks, and four K100s (which are ridiculously expensive, more than V30s, but the best all around speaker Celestion makes) I figured it was time to do a little DiY action on the head to...

    I feel like prog nerds should have just done this the first time around:
  19. Music: Other Instruments
    Since that Stingray was a little too used for my liking (and especially for what I paid for it), I decided that I'd get another Spector instead. I also decided that I don't really get on with 5-string scale lengths (or really need a 5 string) so I went back to a 4, which is quite a bit nicer...

    All right here: https://www.musicradar.com/news/guitars/dream-theaters-john-petrucci-the-11-greatest-prog-rock-albums-of-all-time-548955?fbclid=IwAR0ppxr4Q9oZMYuvJ2NbxJpVl6kNlhXV4Brh08NkeLr3-sWfoX_QJ9CB3h0 Some great choices, like CTTE which IMHO is the pinnacle but something for everyone.
