    I always thought it was great that during the whole movie Eugene is so deep in the blues etc, getting life lessons along the way, getting laid, getting to play blues boy for a Blues master etc. ...but had to ditch all that shit and play Paganini to actually win! :rofl:
  3. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Another old video thread :metal: Back a few years ago I only had one guitar but wanted to make divebomb sounds on recordings so I came up with this idea; It's not groundbreaking by any means, I know Jake E Lee (and probably a few others) does similar stuff even on live (I've attempted doing...
  4. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    When you don't have enough frets, just use your finger nail (0:19) :metal: It's on old video, and just a test recording... But I think it's a fun "invention". Do you know of any other guitarists using this trick regurlarly? This is probably just a one-time occasion only for me, but I just had...

    Your move Jaxbro.
  6. Music: Recording Studio
    I've felt really inspired lately to write and record, and just a few weeks ago I started messing around with some of the tracks I've been recording lately. I wanted to add a modern, almost electronic feel to some of my music without it sounding like techno or dubstep. This idea of cutting the...
  7. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Just added this simple lesson video to my Youtube page! I get asked by my students a lot if there are any good tricks to learn what basic chords you can use in every key, so i came up with this simple method to help them out. This isn't a be-all end-all theory Nazi lesson! Just an easy method of...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, I was at a local shop, talking shop, and the guy mentions this thing you can do with Fender Super's. A. Plug guitar into Vibe side 1 B. Connect Vibe 2 to Normal 1 C. It doesn't blow the amp up, and makes a cool sound Any validity to this? I'm not about to blow-up a '67 Super just to find...
  9. Member Introductions
    My fake name is Doug Steele. I play guitar for prog/jazz/metal band Alarum. We're touring Europe pretty much all of October and I'd love to meet as many guitarists as I can. Have a beer, shoot the shit, etc. So hello!! Reverend Shannon told me this was a great place. Cool!! Cuz I fucking hate...
  10. Music: Recording Studio
    ..which will save me a lot of time in the future. I dont know if this is "common knowledge", I wasnt aware about it, so my "work flow" was always, that if I wanted a specific effect/plugin on only a part of the track, I would cut out/or copy this part to a new track, and than add the FX...but I...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Damn, I finally got around to firing up the DC-5, and as someone (Noodles? Mike?) mentioned, boost the mids on the regular EQ, then scoop on the graphic EQ........Holy. Shit. Awesome sound is awesome! I can't believe I hadn't tried this before, though I'm generally afraid to fuck with my EQ...

    :metal: x infinity. Deathcore bands are just teenyboppers doing half-assed Suffocation covers.
  14. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Alright, so I found out that if bend the high B string beyond the edge of the fret and press it against the site of the fret, it will ring the note 1½ step higher. I recorded a little clip that demonstrates how it can be used in a musical context. You learn something new every day. :yesway:
