Backlog aside, the two clips on Youtube made me seriously worried. I agree with treeduck on the Metallica connection, especially on 'Constant Motion', and that is very unfortunate indeed. 'Dark..' didn't really start happening before the four-minute mark, and the pleasure was short-lived. Fairly sta...

If Vai's sound is what you're after, why not go right for the Legacy? I know Steve uses a truckload of effects as well - heck, the forum has its own discussion for that - but it should be a start. I do know they're available in Stockholm, although I can't recall which store at the moment. The price ...

E-FIGHT! E-FIGHT! E-FIGHT! I'm sorry, but I wouldn't know where to begin. Heracles himself would throw up his hands in disgust, as it would take far more than one river to clean away all this manure. Arguments are entirely wasted on Mr burnt out, as he has shown on several occasions, and I don't pr...

Why don't you just support me in what I am saying and then you wouldn't have to whine at me. 8) 8) Don't see that happening, really. 'Twas just a mild rebuke concerning forum decorum. We've been through that before, though, and it didn't take then - should have saved myself the trouble this time. A...

People that just wanted to make some music got fed up with all the "overnight" virtuosos. I keep running into those types of poseurs online and they're almost all heavy metal gaymos.They think they are all doing something that makes them better than everybody else but really they wouldn't even know...

I just reread this topic and noticed some stuff. Bear with me a moment. Just trying socialism and nazis. No? How about Khmer Rouge? Fine. How about Maoism? Communism? Atheism ? Determinism ? Creationism ? Intelligent design? Fine, apparently. Social Democracy? Socialist Worker's Union? Socialists fo...

I have to agree with instrumental case. Virtuoso's have not gone...they've just assumed another form...I think it's all for the better really. The cake is bigger...there more players to choose from and you don't have to worship at the alter of a single player. Virtuosity is where you find it...I am...

Sorry, couldn't resist

Maybe everyone has seen this already, but I'm making sure 8) A lot of people here will know Bill Hicks, but I found this and think it deserves a place on a guitarist's forum. Could be a tie-in to the UK hitlist discussion, but as that went another direction I'll post this HERE . The microphone trick...

One of the greatest improvisers of the modern age. His recordings will only be forgotten if our understanding of music changes on a fundamental level - hence, not likely :wink: I, too, suffer badly from 'sax envy'. Certainly you can portray all the emotion you possess in a guitar piece, but it's a d...

'Clear as mud, but it covers the ground, ' as Belafonte sang. With three decades of listening to and studying music, as well as a degree in the Humanities and Arts, I'm not too worried about a discussion regarding taste - mine isn't better because of my field, but I can hold my own in a debate regar...
