Pick material makes a very noticeable difference. Try it yourself or look up some videos about. Also picks with the same material and thickness but a different tip shape/edge will sound different
Might see how much a proper custom one of those are, I need a new 7 and I want it to be nicer than the Schecter I have.
I have quite a few different picks, i.e Gravity, V-Picks, a few metal ones among others, and yeah some felt nice, but I just find myself keep going back to either the Dunlop Nylons or Tortex
It's your boy anon here
Time to spit some lyrical madness on y'all
[beat picks up]
Thursday niz-ight, postin on /gg/
Say to this nigga "you gotta listen to me"
"What you on, senpai" he starts to moan
"Use picks made of stone fo superior tone" (what?)
I say "picks of stone for dat superior tone, nigga"
Been learning guitar for a few months. I'm currently following justinguitar's intermediate method. I'm trying to learn e shape barre chords (minor and 7), but goddamn my wrist hurts after a 10 minute workout. I'm also practicing playing major scale with a metronome but that adds up to the pain, too. Is this expected or am I doing something wrong? I don't think I have an unconventional hand position from what I've seen from the videos.
I can't deal with this >>61748842
reposting from previous one:
so what's a nice fuzz pedal without that chiptune-sounding octave stuff? just need some dirty, imploding, suffocating sound
just wound Red Witch Fuzz God II and it sounds neat, anyone know anything about that one?
you playing acoustic? if so pain is pretty normal but shouldn't be ignored. Wrist pain is especially important to deal with. Try playing in classical position for a while. keep your elbow in. You want as little bend to the wrist as possible.
Has anyone else been through the process of recording an album and having to deal with bandmates' bruised egos along the way?
I had to track the rhythm guitarist's parts since he's not as clean as he needs to be, and he's throwing a huge fit about it. The same thing happened with the bass player, but I only had to do a couple of his parts. I knew these guys were a little sloppy and we might run into issues with it, but I had no idea they would be this volatile in the studio
Tell them that if they want to record an album they have to get over themselves and act like professionals while making it; what's the point in making an album if you don't want to make it the best you possibly can? Make it clear that you just want them to improve not only for the band but for their own sakes as well that it could help them zoom in on what's holding themselves back and what they could improve to be better musicians.
I'm playing electric. I think I over do it sometimes, but generally barre chord practice hurts my wrist even for a short while. At first, I realized my thumb was way left behind the neck, but I think I fixed that. I might try the classical position and also I'll buy a lighter string next time, thanks fellas.
I had this problem recently too. I used to touch the back of the neck with my thumb only. Obviously my wrist was quite bent most of the time.
What eliminated the pain for me was holding my neck a bit like one would hold a baseball bat, by wrapping my thumb around it so that it rests on the side of the neck near the lower E string. Doing so helps to keep the wrist in a more straight and natural position and enables your forearm muscles to assist in generating enough pressure for barre chords.
By resting your whole palm on the backside of the neck instead of just the tip of your thumb, all of your fingers will also have a much stronger and stabler base for most chords and riffs.
yes. if it some little mistakes then you are being a dick, if it is totally wrong notes or dispassionate performance, then decide to fire them. fire them by quitting and regrouping with members that are good/actually care. get a new band name.
Just make sure to practice every day. Even if it's as little as five to ten minutes it's better than not practicing everyday. And the good thing is that no matter how busy your schedule is, you can always find the time for those ten minutes.
Whether you practice scales, rhythm, new songs or whatever does not matter as long as you're 100% focused on the guitar for those few minutes.
Something like this. You probably have to play around with the position a tad to find a variation that is comfortable for the individual physique of your hand.
Actually, this is closer to my grip.
Hey, just got my 2nd pickup in the mail. You guys want me to blog post the swap for educational purposes? I also need to fix the grounding.
87 MIJ strat body with a 69' strat neck>>61749875
Are there any chords that sound "off" when played properly in position? My tuning and intonation are spot on, yet if I play an A chord in 5th position it just sounds off to me. Yet same shape for G in 3rd position sounds fine.
The missing sunburst at the horn gets me every time.
I told the guitarist almost exactly that, but apparently all he heard was "you're a terrible guitarist, you suck."
It's mostly improper timing and strings ringing out where they shouldn't. I wouldn't want to disband or fire people over it, hopefully I can convince them it'll just take effort and practice to improve themselves and the band
good soldering. I wasn't expecting mini pots. I might as well do the no load mod while I'm at it. gonna test the grounding, I'm beginning to think it was my imagination, everything looks good. I don't really feel like doing cavity grounding, is it worth it?
fuck them, only cool ones are maybe 12 strings but even then, why
Not memeing. By pinch a chord I mean pluck all the strings fingerstyle so the are played at exactly the same time. Strumming is just a really fast arpeggio, so if the order of the notes is what's sounding off to me playing it like this might sound better.
i don't really care for the sound most of the time but i especially don't like the way acoustic guitars play, and they're not designed for a lot of more advanced guitar techniques, they're limiting
still can't believe that i played acoustic almost exclusively for two years when i first learned
are you stupid? acoustic guitars have so much more advanced guitar techniques such as fingerstyle in and of itself flamnco rumba acoustic is nowhere near limiting if anything electrics limit a lot of sounds you can make such as since most electrics are not hollow you can't get a good beat out of them such as using your fingers to tab and using the palm of your hand on the upper bit of the guitar to make a kick drum sound so much more things you can do on acoustic than you think
I have an acoustic and a classic that sit unplayed at their stands. I very much prefer to play electric.
However, having an electric guitar with a piezo has made me appreciate the sound and enjoy playing acoustic songs in it.
here are some fingerstyle tabs for youhttp://www.guitarnick.com/scarborough-fair-fingerstyle-guitar-tablature.html http://zaidshoufan.com/info/guitar/tabs/FingerStyle/Hiroshi%20Masuda/Lucy%20In%20The%20Sky%20With%20Diamonds.pdf and here is also a site with tons of fingerstyle tabs http://zaidshoufan.com/info/guitar/
You can still use fingerstyle on an electric.
The only way acoustics can limit you is when you're playing cheaper ones with bad action or really limited fret access.
The only thing they truly lack against electrical guitars is modulation, and tremolo. Though there's probably someone who built an acoustic with a bigsby on it.
Original pickup. The cover won't come off so I think I'll leave it, which is a shame cuz I don't really like having Seymour Duncan written on my pickup covers.
Anyone have any experience fixing stripped screw holes on the guitar's body? A couple of my pickgaurd holes are toast, no buzzing yet but I'd like to fix them. Drill and fill with dowel seems like overkill, should I try filling with bondo?
>fast metal garbage
Yep. Non-professional metal bassists universally sloppy. It is known
>not a fender
Fender is much lazier
>pic related usa standard
That'd be interesting if they are Yamaha pickups. The bass is an sx. I think the covers are glued on to the old pickups but I might try cutting them off. The new pickups are slightly different in size and it would save me from ugly gaps and sanding the pickguard.
Not gonna bother rotating this one but as you can see the gap is not that noticeable.
in the world of cheap made in china guitars, brand barely matters anyway.
It's like the Ibanez RG8's pickups which were at onen point Cort bass pickups. I don't know if it's still true to this day.
not anymore, people throw shitfits about ceramics in Basses now, especially the type of basses Cort makes.
I will say on the topic of pickups that the Neodymium magnet pickups are really fucking impressive and I wish they were more popular.
So if i do end up buying the Larrivee lv-05 for $800, ill be posting a picture of it.
I know nothing about guitars tbhgg
I replied to your first post about it, but I feel like I should say something again:
It's not a "if I end up buying it" thing, even if you don't really want to play or get into guitars, buy it. Really, anon. Fucking buy it. You can resell it and instantly make 1000$ profit.
So I'm mostly a funk and jazz bassist (Jaco, Marcus Miller, Pattitucci and so on) and I want to get into metal. Is there an efficient way to master the three-finger technique? Some sort of exercises other than just playing continuously with three fingers? I've been practicing for a while but I feel like I have nowhere near the speed I have with two fingers. How did you metal bassists learn how to do it?
Not unless it has scratches and wear from being older. In the case of Larrivee they're solid wood, very well made, and their wood comes from the best places you can get wood for an acoustic. Their factory location is in a good place too(more important than most people think).
They all sell for much higher than $800
So i just tried learning pinch harmonics and i just cant fucking do them. I hold the pick lower and do a flick so my thumb hits after the pick does but it won't work. Anyone got any tips?
It's feeling. After working at it you will feel the technique go from two motions to one, and you'll be able to...just kind've be able to do them from now on. It's hard to describe but no matter how you hold a pick, with a bit of practice just digging your thumb in a little will get you a pinch harmonic.
I dunno how experienced you are but this is generally how I started out
The whole channel does decent basic lessons
Learning songs that incorporated galloping also helped a little bit, like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86URGgqONvA
Well I'm currently playing Used to be a (cha cha) from Pastorius with my teacher I don't really know, intermediate-advanced perhaps?
Anyway thanks for the exercise, I'll see if I can get more. One of my goal would be to be able to play this at the same speed : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMorAdnCixg especially the long middle-part.
What do you mean, anon?
>highway one body
What pattern are you using/comfortable with? Have you tried a different pattern? Personally I'm comfortable with ring-middle-index-middle-repeat, but there are any number of combinations you might find work better.
But in general, speed is ironically the slowest thing to come to most players. To keep your playing clean, start slow and progressively get faster, which is really the basic concept for anything. It'll take time for your muscles to break in and get comfortable with moving extremely fast like that.
Basically. They are good bridges, just nothing stand out. They look nice though.
In other news I finished sanding the pick guard.
Right now I'm simply using the Ring-Middle-Index pattern but should I use a 4 finger pattern like you?
Yeah just like my 2-fingers techniqurme really. I was just wondering if there were special exercises to get comfortable playing with three fingers instead. Of course I don't plan to play at this kind of speed right away.
I only use a 4 finger pattern because it keeps me in time better. 4 finger pattern for a 4/4 rhythm lets me focus more on what I'm playing.
I would suggest to just experiment with different patterns to find what works best for you. Just make sure to dedicate some time to speed training every time you practice.
Make sure to practice string transitions and skipping with 3 finger technique too, otherwise you'll only be able to chug one string.
Even when they have useful features like multi-slotted saddles?
do yourself a favor and lurk some ilovefuzz
Break the pinch harmonic down into two steps. It's just picking then the closest part of your thumb touches the string as lightly as possible. Try picking then just touching the string with a finger tip afterwards instead just to find the best picking hand position to bring them out. Position up and down the string matters a lot here. Remember super soft thumb touch, lots of gain, lots of vibrato.
That's actually what I was worried about. Can I still get a clean and nice sound using a three finger pattern? Sometimes I lose track of the first beat and it gets a little messy but I guess it's because I just started playing with three fingers.
Yeah I'll be sure to do that. Thanks for your advice.
Yeah, consistent sound from finger to finger is also something to take into account. If you're worried about getting even sounds from every finger, just play in a way that's both comfortable for you and plays cleanly. It's a little hard to be specific here, mostly because everyone plays differently and has their own definition of what's comfortable. The best I can give you is, again, start really slow, get it perfect, then go faster. I'm sure I don't have to tell you, but using a metronome is a must.
finally pulled out the goddamn dremel.
only my second and third finger tho
Oh shit, I just caught myself pulling a bloozface during a held-out bend in the middle of a shreddy solo I'm writing.
Can I save myself, or am I too far gone?
Yeah I'll use the metronome and increase the speed by little steps while trying to keep the sound as perfectly clean as it gets. Thanks for taking your time to help me.
EVERYTHING IS STARTING TO MAKE SENSE, I'M DOING IT
Just slip some bits >>61751152
of wood glue and toothpicks in. It fills out the whole and the toothpicks give the screws something to bite. Had to do this to my bass because the input jack was fucked.
if my last tip breaks before I'm done I'm killing myself
well that's that

I shortened it and it worked
A custom .strandberg* is about the same price as a Les Paul Custom.
Big Muff. I use an Anarchy Audio Vagiant.
They still use them on LPCs.
You can do pinch harmonics on the neck pickup.
DC resistance isn't a good way to measure output, but it will give you a rough idea.
I got my avatar 2x12 cabinet Wednesday. Should've on Tuesday, but Fedex delayed due to weather.
This thing is beautiful. I have a cannabis rex in the top left and private jack in the bottom right. I have the cabinet set to be open, it's convertible. Huge bass to it. It was very bright with the Private jack on top, so I switched it to the bottom.
The only problem was the back of the cabinet is such a perfect fit, it's nearly impossible to remove. It must've scraped the tolex off of the corner edges when they pounded the back panel in, and when I had to pull it back out to install my speakers, but these are impossible to see thankfully.
Holy shit my sides. You seriously need to buy a Hakko iron or some shit, that thing could cook a turkey.
I'm gonna be amazed if this actually conducts. What a fiasco.
Oh forget the intonation... Unless, maybe, your tuner isn't very accurate. TU-3 master race...
Learn other people's solos, know your scales, have a good ear. Don't just play notes because you're fingers want to go there, think of how you want it to sound in your head first
Bretty happy with dat rig
Now I just need to find a drummer who wants to play black metal with me :(
thought the frets needed cleaning, looks like they need sanding. signs of rust? idk they got some schmutz on them
i had to pick up my SG to make sure that i was being properly memed, good job OP
>randall cab, schecter with emgs, line6 preamp
post a clip of your tone, please. 7 strings are gay, by the way
sweet grandpa's guitar
the suggestions people have posted are correct. start with a hard pick attack, then a light thumb graze on the string. slowly turn those two motions into one. just practice the harmonics by themselves for a bit, outside of riffs, just to get the technique down. position on the strings matters too, as someone else said, closer to the bridge makes for higher harmonics. they're also harder to do the closer to the bridge you get, and harder the higher the note/string is in frequency. just keep experimenting with it, just takes practice
also, they work fine on the neck pickup
stop if it hurts, but you look fine bro
welcome to the guitar world, have fun on your visit
girls cream their pants over those faces man, you're so sensitive, you're so expressive.
what do you already know about music theory? also, what's the genre of music you're going for? i don't know a ton, but i might be able to help.
solos are a mix of scales and arpeggios, with flair thrown in that changes depending on (but is not limited to) what genre you're doing (legato for blues, pinch harmonics for metal/rock, big arpeggios and taps for metal/classical/jazz/etc) there's a lot more to it than just this, but hopefully i can help your learning process
gothicbro represent, i played with some guys earlier this week that were complaining about lack of inlays and "it's hard to follow, there's so much gain on your guitar"
he was playing pic related
I know about scales and modes and keys and intervals and chords etc
I just want to make fast, bluesy minor penatonic solos with lots of fast hammer ons and pull offs, like slash or dave Navarro in their soloing
i can pick out 3 or 4 notes that work and then play them in a fast loop, but I don't know how to mob up and down the frets and build that into a whole solo
It's just practice dude. It takes practice to be able to play scales all over the neck. If you're doing pentatonics then its even easier than regular scales and modes, so get off gg and practice. You have no excuse
Well boys... She growls. Gonna raise the pickups some more soon for the real growl. But yeah this bass is a mean machine that makes me want to dig in on every note and get a lot better at using a pick. I think I will have this bass for the rest of my life. Now to add 2 pickups, 4 switches and 2 knobs. Also the white PG is growing on me, looks really good up close but I think the tort looks better from a distance.
is your knowledge of the scales that you want to use all over the neck (in whatever key) good?
i had the problem that i knew the scales in one position on the neck, but didn't know how to link it all properly together. learning the neck more helped me almost instantly
solos almost always have licks like what you're describing, but when you can slide those licks up and down the neck, it really changes the voicing. sweep type arpeggios might help too, once you get them down they start to sound real slick
sounds like you like hard rock? it's not my chosen genre but it seems like it's mostly pentatonic licks with accents focused on notes that connect the underlying changing chords
hope this helps
Just learn the blues scale and start playing it over backing tracks. That's basically every Led Zep/Sabbath/Cream/White Stripes/Hendrix/Van Halen/etc. solo ever. You'll fill in the gaps around the fretboard the more you play but you need to actually play. It comes together pretty quickly once you get a couple basic scale shapes under your belt and the experience of running over them in a soloing context is pretty much instantly gratifying as a beginning guitarist.
Lol what kind of faggot shit is this
I'm asking for advice on a technique so that I may practice it
Why aren't you practicing now you fucking weakling? What's your excuse pussy? Have you learned everything there is to learn about guitar?
is also right, it just takes a whole lot of practice
run the scales by yourself, sometimes the immense amount of practicing that it takes is daunting. but all the theory in the world doesn't matter if you don't practice
then run the scales by yourself again, and again, then set up some sort of backing track and try to solo over that
My bass rig. I don't gig or anything, I just noodle around for my own amusement.
Picking up a Stingray 5 tomorrow.
Dude if you know how to fret and how to pick, the most basic fucking techniques, then its all memorization from there. Don't get pissed at me for not giving you the answer you wanted to hear
Might as well post.
Here's a thing i'm working on with a friend.
he's doing guitar and i'm doing all the drums and shit.
Been on a dry spell lately. getting pretty good at tech stuff and improv though. any advanced players here?
looks just fine for gigging to me, have fun with the new bass
confirmed for being bad
the dude just wants to learn,
so let him learn,
he doesn't need your negative shit, doesn't help dude
pic related is my main jam,
memes on top of memes
I'm sorry dude but I straight up don't see how I'm being rude. The trick for what he's asking is to know the positions of the pentatonic scale all over the neck, which is something that requires, aside from some tricks like octaves positions, straight up rote memorization. Am I wrong?
Oh well then yeah I'd consider myself an advanced bass player by your standards. I'm in a deathcore band (think The Faceless, Abiotic) and I play pretty technical bass lines. I'd post shit but we're hitting the studio soon so I don't have anything to share yet, sadly
Some of my favorite techniques are sweep tapping, double thumb, and three finger tremolo picking
but dude, you could have posted all of those things the first time. you're right, and i agree that practice is at the root of it, but
>the positions of the pentatonic scale all over the neck
what you just said is infinitely more helpful than your original comment
>it takes practice
tone matters man. remember, you love guitar, just like I do, just like this guy does. we should be helping each other. the guitar has obviously brought us great joy in our lives, so we should pass that on.
not saying it doesn't take practice, but sometimes a helpful hand/mind can teach you more in 3 hours than 3 months of practicing alone
Not metal, but literally the last song that i worked on by myself.
doing a a cover of the faceless's a prophesy of fruitation 2
This was kind of funny to me, because I don't even have any "techniques." I just play bass. I never thought about it that way. Then again I'm just a rhythm player, so I probably think about bass in a different way. I should probably learn stuff like 3 finger tremolo and tapping for when I need to do a big fill on a fast song though. I dunno, you guys think you can fit this stuff into punk?
Is it an Ursa? Also I figured out how your soldering iron works lel. I'm just not used to that kind of soldering irons.
I'm worried about your multi pickup solution generating magnetic interference between each pickup though. If you have some way to try it before routing the body I'd definitely do it if I was you. Otherwise you could be off for a nasty surprise (pickups work because the vibrating string alters the magnetic field, if it's stronger because of magnets outside a given coil maybe those variations could become less apparent).
That said, nice work and enjoy your bass!
Might as well buy a 90s ferrari with that kind of money :^)
I want to change the pickups in my musicman, neck and bridge humbuckers for something hotter. thinking about a dimarzio tone zone and evolution, any other recommendations?
Ive heard of those. They use to come stock in someother guitar I cant think of right now. Ive tried a lot of others. Most notably was the lace Death bucker, but eventually I noticed it was too even frequency wise, but it was hot and nice in split coil mode.
My shit tier fake strat is 22 years old and I bet she's better than yours :^)
Why is the average Music Man bass design so pig disgusting?
Thanks m8, the headstock was what made me fall in love with the model. Picked it up 3 months ago, I absolutely love it. I'm glad I know how to set it up. Weighs like a rock though but that's not a problem for me.
Their guitars on the other hand are much better, although many of them are pig disgusting too, including their superstrats. The St. Vincents and Armadas look interesting, if edgy. L III and Majesty look awesome too. The Cutlass is a nice spin on the Strat.
Yeah, the guitars are really nice and comfy. This is my Silhouette >>61759897
The basses are a different animal. To each their own I guess, but the different tones and actual carry and balance is fucking awesome.
>The basses are a different animal. To each their own I guess, but the different tones and actual carry and balance is fucking awesome.
Oh I won't dispute that. There is no funk tone superior to that of a Music Man bass. That said, if I was going to get one, it would be a Stingray 5. I'm deeply disgusted by the toilet seat look of Bongos. Stingrays and Sterlings don't look like a toilet seat but they're pretty ugly still. The game changer isn't too bad I guess.
Listen to this Spanish girl, enjoy and fall in love
>he's a broke ass nigga
Anyone can help me with math rock? what i'm particularly interested in is two-handed tapping, i wanna do twinkly shit. recommend tunings (i'm in open c right now), licks, tips & tricks, whatever.
also check this shit out, it's awesome
[ ]Not rekt
Looked them up and could only think of one thing:
>paying over 2 grand for a mcgyver amp
I rebuilt it entirely. It was a 1959 Stromberg Carlson Signet 22 (or SAU22) which is an amp that uses a 12AX7, a 6U8, Two EL84, and a 5Y3 rectifier. About 18-19 watts.
Now it uses 2 12ax7, instead of the 6u8, and is built around the basis of a Marshall 18watt with many mods influenced by orange, matchless, etc, and ones I made up, like a treble cut switch and volume reduction switch, which is a switchable master volume basically.
It has a cascaded preamp for tons of gain and volume if needed. Most of the parts values are my choice for its sound.
>literally a bunch of hipster meme-tier niche musicians who no one cares about, much less women
If you want to melt pussy the most melodic thing you can play is probably this
idk about alt tunings anymore since i stopped that shit in favor of just truly learning the neck (helped with theory)
In terms of two hand tapping make sure to look into bass players as well as guitar players
here's some shit that can help
as you may notice, a lot of two hand tapping stuff come with extended range guitar technique, so look there for abundant material
The whole vinyl revival is a fad that will pass - record companies are pushing out cheap, shitty pressings that they cost WAY more than they're worth, or guys are buying ruined discs in thrift shops that cost 50c each
Who gives a shit if a crappy turntable wrecks them - this won't affect high quality pressings that you of anyone else owns.
you're the one throwing around buzzwords family
no shit, that's what happens when you are legitimately talented at something
>guitar playing is about melting pussy
if you actually composed a modern fingerstyle song for a girl she might actually want to have sex with you more than once
>implying that you actually write your own material
nvm family, it's all good to be quite honest
>no shit, that's what happens when you are legitimately talented at something
>if you actually composed a modern fingerstyle song for a girl she might actually want to have sex with you more than once
That could work. I don't play to melt pussy though, I play bass and grabbed electric a pair of months ago.
Superb, you showed him a God-tier musician people actually and called anon a fedora tipper with a single pic. I'm impressed.
Vai is like Paganini though, most of his fans have absolutely no idea what he is doing and the few that do are usually just worse guitarists fanwhoring about him
also, compositionally bass stuff is way more insane and compelling than standard guitar
>and the few that do are usually just worse guitarists fanwhoring about him
"The guitar playing is really nice. Sounds like a humbucking pickup. I've never heard this before, but I know it's Steve Vai. Steve's got his own sound and style -- I spotted it right away -- and that's what I admire about him. This is some of the best stuff that I've ever heard from him. I like what he's doing in the middle of the song -- sounds like he's using an octave divider. Very interesting. Musically and arrangement-wise, it's excellent. I have an objection to Steve's actual guitar sound, and I've told him so myself, but that doesn't really matter at this moment. I don't think that anyone who clones anybody, or plays something technically perfect, is worth s much as somebody with their own identity. Steve's definately got it. There's no way I'm going to knock that, even though much of what he does may not be my cup of tea. But this track I really liked. Steve, good on you, man."

oh, i see the problem now
>Becker graduated from Kennedy High School where he performed Yngwie Malmsteen's "Black Star" with his band at a talent show
literally exactly my point, Becker was playing Yngwie at age 16 and soon surpassed him in technique and originality.
well... Pollock had merit too, and literally only he understood the art he pioneered and still people ate his shit over it, doesn't make him any less a waste of space
>1.1k isn't even enough for one month of car installment
I innately want to tell you to fuck off for having money and not knowing what to do with it, on the other hand just custom shop a guitar from Carvin that will last you your entire life.
>are you sure i'm the butthurt one?
I was doing other stuff, I just read your post

Black Star isn't Far Beyond the Sun
m8, that was just an edgy CIA "art" act to counter USSR's socialist realism. The message was that there were no constraints to artists even if it was crap like Pollock's. He was supposed to be the personification of freedom of expression.
I agree, but I'd rather have a Tele than a Les Paul. I think they're even uglier and look dated. I've thought that way since the first time I saw one. Pic related is the exception.
I've had this VM 70's Squier for about a year now, it's pretty good and I love it. But it's starting to wear out, any good mods that you guys would recommend?
Scalloping. It's already the right color.
>Black Star isn't Far Beyond the Sun
Far Beyond the Sun isn't Perpetual Burn
>act to counter USSR's socialist realism
mah, nigga. you get it
I admitted to Yngwie's influence, the issue is that people applaud him as if he is a god, much the way they do someone like Van Halen for appropriating older techniques, but made them cool and more accessible because of heavy rock and metal. Yngwie wouldn't have existed without Paganini.
But anon, his shreds have feeling to them.
>Far Beyond the Sun isn't Perpetual Burn
It's 4 years later though. And Far Beyond the Sun is still faster.
That said, I think "wankery" probably applies to our discussion, although not to Yngwie's or Jason's playing.
>mah, nigga. you get it
Of course I do :^)
>n-no thanks anon...
>But anon, his shreds have feeling to them.
but anon, they really don't
>It's 4 years later though.
and Becker is still many years younger by that time
>Far Beyond the Sun is still faster
faster =/= better / more original
in the realm of neoclassical faster usually only indicates that the run is vapid, at least in terms of composition and theory, because more complex runs would be more difficult to speed up.
but don't mind me, i'm just trying to keep my self awake by arguing about nonsense on a pan-asian painting forum

Me too kek, 10:36 am here. I've been up all night, should go get some sleep.
>faster =/= better / more original
Yeah, but Yngwie did what no one seriously thought of before, Jason just perfected him. It's like Japanese stuff that copies western stuff but improves it. Case in point, pic related. Yngwie was the true innovator.
such little gears being toasted.
Currently staining the kelly re-vamp
Yeah Yngwie gets a lot of shit on this board, and in guitar world in general.
I still like him a lot, but man you can tell sometimes when he plays drunk, he plays perfect live but during lesson videos demos where you plays something on the spot he is sloppy as all fuck, and I know it's because he's drunk as hell.
I'll buy whatever guitar I want, anon~
In truth its the extra wide fretboard and the smell of marshmallows that swayed me, I think having a guitar that makes you want to pick it up is the best kind of guitar.
yeah man I cut every string off apart from the top E and down tune to double drop B and smash that 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 for days
No one ever thought of making a classical influenced metal album before him
Wow, he needs to get his act together. Could it be that he became an alcoholic because he ceased to be the most famous and idolized guitarist in the world? If so it would be a shame. Specially if he can't get it together for a video lesson that he's being paid to do nonetheless. That said, that wasn't half bad for being drunk, kek.
Is the Beck movie any good? I just found out about it and Hiro playing Ryusuke is a big selling point for me.
I know you're memeing but you can't tune to double drop B with a single string
besides why would you cut your strings? more like add another string, everyone knows you need as many strings as possible for djent even if you only chug on the lowest.
yeah man, saw the new PRSE 277, their semi-hollow baritone guitar and the gas is real.
Planning on getting a baritone Hagstom Viking
Honestly the Stingrays look much better in person. The cutaways on the body are fucking gorgeous. And really, it's mostly just the pickguard that's retarded.
The black dual humbuck bass in the bottom right, never seen it before but it does look pretty alright.
The Bongo is just goofy as hell so yeah.
