Lost my groove... want to get it back but can't...

Have any of you been in a situation where you just lost the will to play? Not talking about the occasional bad day where you feel rusted up and boring, but a very long period of time where music has become a foreign language. In my case it was because of personal issues with a bandmate (ego, narciss...

Re: Maybe someone can help me out here..

Hey guys, thanks for the replies. I forgot to mention I also own a Morley with true bypass so I could just use that as my gig pedal. I would totally get a Legacy, but I'm living overseas in Israel for the next several years (school/business). There's only one Carvin dealer that I know of in this cou...

Maybe someone can help me out here..

Hey, I'm about to buy a new amp and I'm pretty excited, but being broke and all, I want to make the best decision that fits my needs. In terms of tone/sound I'm looking for distortion with depth, harmonics and "balls". I want clean tones that could sort of compare to a Fender tube amp. I thought abo...

Re: Learning the modes

Reply to the original post.. I was so frustrated with modes for years that I had completely given up on learning them until I realized what was holding me back: --------- Problem #1: Many online 'lessons' are so poorly written, they make learning modes seem like a chore and can literally give you mi...

Couldn't help but notice..

..how well this site is maintained in comparison to so many other online communities and/or famous musicians' pages. I haven't been here in a while but the Vai.com store looks awesome as usual, the Naked Tracks page looks like its going to be stellar and the little black dots/machines sections are w...

Good point notavirtuoso, but think about how much time, money and manpower we're spending on the oil and coal industries at the moment. Maintaining oil rigs, coal mines and nuclear power plants has got to be expensive (and dangerous). Regarding how the sattelite thing works.. I have no idea. I'll tr...

You should check out the Southpark episode 'Alert'. Season 10, episode 2 (or #141).

.. And as an environmentalist, why are you nitpicking through itty bitty and ultimately meaningless matters? 'Blackle' isn't going to save this planet. It's like penny pinching. Sure, you don't have to leave a tip when you eat out. You'll definately save money that way. But God help you if I'm your ...

On the contrary. I think we should be wasting as much energy as possible. At least until the Bush administration's reign ends. I saw a program on the History chanel (or Discovery.. i forget) about the possibility of building a gigantic solar panel reflector thingy and sending it into orbit to harnes...

Duggy, how about one month to compose and get crits, followed by one week of voting?

Duggy, don't worry about sh-t like that. If it comes from the right place and put enough elbow grease into it, it'll be awesome :peace !!

5 minutes max sounds great :D . More than enough time. Run it for two weeks! (One week entries and critique, one week of polls) :twisted: I think the 'prize' should be winning too. Let's face it. Steve's a busy guy. If the thread stays open - who knows - maybe he'll get a chance to hear it someday. ...

my $0.02:

1. One piece (but it could be anything -- from a lick to a full scale symphony :shock: )

2. 10-12 minutes max sound decent?

3. I doubt Steve has time to listen to so many tracks.. so.. poll it :D !

Haven't seen the Paul Gilbert vids yet yet, but I'll definately check them out.

Was Petrucci always so stiff (and/or shy?) on stage? I saw a few old pics of him I think with Marty Friedman or Jason Becker and he seemed a bit "livelier" with long hair.
