I'm a bit scared of 7-string guitars to tell the truth! And there's nowhere near me where I can try one out.

Thanks for your suggestions guys. I went down my local guitar shop and tried a range of guitars and found a very nice Les Paul standard for £1200. It's got the 50's neck, is extremely heavy (solid mahogany body) but sweet child o' mine does it sound great! ;-)

Buying a new guitar - recommendations?

I already have a JEM 7VWH (and a Washburn Mercury Series but that's a pile of crap really). What should my next guitar purchase be? I've lost touch with the guitar scene over the last 10 years and am not sure what you can get these days for £800-£1500. I originally thought I'd get an Ibanez JS1000, ...

Can someone recommend a pre-amp/speaker emulator for DI

I connect my guitar directly to my PC for recording using an Alesis Quadraverb, which has built-in pre-amp and speaker emulator. I'm thinking of ditching this set-up in favour of a G-Major (can't afford a G-Force) to make use of the G-Major's superior effects, but apparently, you're not supposed to ...

I don't think people in the states would accept anything Steve does as a single. They're all full of "please brainwash top 40 crap into my head because I'm incapable of recognizing the musical arts and I need ....Oh never mind. In the UK, tunes downloaded from iTunes, Napster, et al. are to be incl...

Re: what the hell is peaples problem with hammet?????

I like Metallica up until the black album - after that I think other things got in the way of their ability to make decent music. Kirk Hammet has written some amazing solos, Fade to Black and Sanitarium spring immediately to mind. However, I think he has also contributed a lot of very boring solos t...

Re: digitech Whammy?

Tell me what am I suppose to hear with it! What sounds and tricks can be done on it? For $200 it's gotta do more than suck at dive bombs! It certainly does. The 'dive bomb' effect is just one of many. The Whammy pedal is really a pitch shifter and the pedal simply allows you to bend between the two...

Anyways, none of the stores around here carry the GMajor, or really any TC stuff so I can't try it out, I'd just have to buy it off of Musiciansfriend or something and hope I like it which is why I'd also like to know as much as possible about this thing, or any other processor in this price range ...

My Quadraverb is just going straight into my PC at the moment which is why I benefit from the distortion/overdrive at the moment. I read that Steve has his "clean sound" with a fair amount of overdrive and for really clean sounds he simply uses the volume on his guitar. he then uses relatively mild ...

hmm i dont know how it would go over in England but here i think people would just laugh at it and call him weird. Possibly, but there's a fair amount of weirder people in the charts right now. Personally, if i was going to introduce Vai to the mass public i would not put one of his vocal songs on ...

What was that saying about arguing on the internet being like the "special olympics"? Even if you win, you are still retarded. Insult me as much as you like with your ad hominem arguments (for I am immune to them) but dismissing the athletes who compete in the Special Olympics as 'retarded' is way ...

Should Firewall be released as a single?

After many listens, I think Firewall would do really well as a single, both in the US and the UK and Europe. Who's with me?

Which tracks should accompany it? Live versions of some other tracks from RI:R?
