    Apparently Don Dokken had neck surgery that didn't go well: https://www.metalsucks.net/2020/07/22/don-dokkens-hands-are-still-paralyzed-following-surgery-cant-play-guitar/ It looks like he's recovering slowly, but they played a show in July and well... This is embarrassing, I worshipped...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Yes, C&P from SSO. :cunt: Been looking at different pickups to get a guitar I plan on getting at the end of the month, and I've kind of decided on the Duncan Nazgul. After thinking about it, though, I kinda want to go the route I originally planned awhile back; getting an authentic B&B L500XL...

    Amazing, what a great show :) If you get the chance, GO! I've seen them maybe 15 times and this was the best they've sounded in a long time. R40 Live: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania | Rush.com

    not sure where to begin. my gf computer has been having issues. its restarted itself a couple of times in the past two months, but both times it won't start up. she then has to start it, but to start has to restore it from a backup on the external hd. which brings me to the next issue. the...

    Amok is a legendary album. Legitimately one of the greatest albums of all time. Sentenced immediately followed it up by getting obnoxiously melodramatic and gothic, and most fans disown everything after Amok. But god damn if the choruses on every single song on the first half of the follow up...

    Is it bad I really want to go see AC/DC this tour? They are playing Wrigley out here in Chicago and looking at the set list from the other night it made me want to go. I've seen AC/DC a few times, and i realize that they are not getting any younger. And sometimes you just need to go see a...

    Picked these up this morning, $470 for the pair. Now I just need an amp worthy of them :agreed:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/22/opinion/sunday/why-we-like-sad-music.html Very interesting read, but one that points to a surprisingly obvious point - that "sad" music doesn't necessarily make us feel sad. Also, I'd be curious to see how the magnitude of the feeling correlates with the degree...

  14. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Well I picked one of these up a couple weeks ago and the other today ! These things are great ! I have had other ibbys before but now I understand why there are fanboys for ibanez. The necks are beautiful ! Better pics to come. The yellow one is from budda on this forum and the other was from a...

    So here we go, here's the new guitar. As mentioned a few times, it's an Emperion and a few people have had issues with them so I'm not gonna go on about them much. However I've had no problems with them, and the guitar is pretty sweet. Specs are mahogany body, mahogany neck, ebony fretboard, 24...

    Yes, I know it's been out for a while. I just got around to picking it up and listening to it. Only one thing is really jumping out at me: the all-important ultra-melodic delay-soaked guitar lines that I love so much are way more buried in the production this time around :( They need to be...

    Super good times! Here is another play-thru video of me playing our song Replicant. This is one of my favorite songs of ours to play. Its pretty spacey, its got some heavy stuff in there, my drummer gets to flip out and go nuts, and the solo is super fun to play. I'm using my numero-uno, THE...

    That means it's Curtis Mayfield time, motherfuckers. :yesway: Not Curtis Mayfield, but a vocal doppelganger:
  19. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've been trying to figure this out for a while now. It makes no sense, and it REALLY bugs me, especially seeing how the loomis cost a lot more than the Arc. If I had to compare both guitars in terms of sound, I'd say the Arc is ballsy, kind of scooped but full. Its also snappy, but not...
