  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Another year, another Melbourne Guitar Show, another excuse to empty my funds. Actually, I wasn't as extravagant as last year (though that's coming later). So I stuck around the Roland/Boss booth and walked away with 2 things. First the Boss Katana mini. I needed a better small practice...

  4. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    As a structural engineer I've been designing and detailing welds as they relate to building construction for quite a while, and have always wanted to learn how to weld. A couple of weekends ago I went to a welding workshop where they teach you how to use a MIG welder, oxy/acetalene torch for...

    ..starting with Friday, when my doom death band Dying Embrace played a damned tight set with a bunch of killer bands.. ..then Saturday morning, when I was hungover but happy ..the postman arrived with 100 copies of our new CD ..hot off the press in the Czech Republic courtesy of Bizarre...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Okay, here it is. After picking up the 6505+, I was offered a trade straight across... my Laney Ironheart 60H head for a Mesa Boogie Rect-O-Verb 50 combo. I thought about it, did a little research, listened to some videos and pulled the trigger. This is a Series 1, not a Series 2. The...
  7. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So my shop took in a used USA Peavey Wolfgang, the one with the stop tail/TOM setup. I really find it to be pretty ugly; even more so than the EBMM Axis is. The guitar was upgraded with a SD JB in the bridge, and I had never tried one (though I've played several EVH/Axis EBMM's before, and loved...
  8. General Music Discussion
    I've been meaning to catch up with Teramaze guitarist Dean Wells for a while now, so why not do it at a shredfest of a gig? :) Teramaze: It's been a while since I saw the band, and that was from the Anhedonia days, so I was really keen to catch this show. Now a brand new lineup, this time as...
  9. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Well I wanted to start building and designing amps since forever and a few months back there was an add for an amp building school coming up. So I signed up and it happened to be the weekend of my birthday which was a plus. It was run by this guy who used to teach electronics and run an amp...
  10. General Music Discussion
    and check for their next tour schedule only to find that they toured a month or two ago?! and wont likely be back for a while :scream2: Just found out about Karnivool. Been listening to them all weekend. Found out they toured in May. I dont think theyll be doing another tour again anytime soon...
  11. General Music Discussion
    Goddamn. All told, a great way to spend a weekend! My sister and I drove down to Columbus Thursday night and stayed at my aunt's place, and headed up Friday first thing. Wifey and our German exchange student came out Friday night, and all Saturday. They couldn't make it Sunday, so my brother...
  12. General Music Discussion
    Sparrows has a couple of US shows coming up, and I know a few of you are around these parts. With a full lineup and as-of-yet unreleased songs, it should be a good time. Hope to meet some of you on the road on this trip!
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    1986 Kramer Triax Pearlescent Burgundy > Guitars : Electric Solid Body - Apple Music :lol: Just heard that Apple Music in portland is going away so the owner is selling off a good chunk of his collection. I remember seeing this thing hanging way up by the ceiling and always wanted to play it...
  14. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hey chums! So, the new Fishman Fluence Modern set is pretty flippin' awesome. I am a lifelong passive pickup guy, so I was initially very apprehensive about a powered pickup... All my doubts vanished as soon as I installed them in my RG550 and plugged it up! This set does everything that an EMG...
  15. Sports Talk
    :metal: Alice in Chains to rock CenturyLink Field at halftime on Sunday
  16. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Hey everyone! So I've started a spinoff series to my This Is Why You Suck at Guitar videos! Weekend Wankshop is where you're going to sit down with your ol' Uncle Ben every weekend and learn a lick guaranteed to be hotter than your stepmom's prom night. Learn the lick and make a video of...
  17. General Music Discussion
    ... and holy hell was it an amazing show! The songs from the last album sound absolutely massive, plus they played most of my girlfriend and I's favourites (with the exception of Dreaming Light), including a few I didn't think they'd do. Also, I really want to install a sustainer in my Les...
  18. General Music Discussion
    Kyle Laven passed away on friday. He was an amazing guitarist and even better friend. He played leads in the canadian thrash band Karnax. RIP BIG K (1986-2013)

    Good music was played. :metal:
  20. MG.ORG Status Updates
    Just a heads up, I'll be doing some security patching and software upgrades this weekend, as well as transitioning to a slightly faster server. This is also a fine time to consider contributing to MG, as the cost of the new machine comes directly out of Drew's beer money.
