I usually change my strings,stretch,and tune a little sharp,one at a time.Then I follow through with all the others,and do a final tuning ,lock the nut,and fine tune.This to me seams easier than taking them all of at once,but to each his own! I'am s...

Clipping the nuts off the strings

I've noticed certain individuals on ebay selling guitar strings that were "used" on one of Vai's guitars during shows. However with some of the replacement edge pro 2 bridges, they don't require clipping the ball off the end of the string. I would guess that his guitar tech (Thomas) would just cut e...

I was wondering the same thing,as to why he would not release the live Real Illisions tour yet.It must be because it will require more work to finish because of the tour secert! Sorry can't tell you the secert,or if it will really follow through,But the show alone for that tour was great! :)

I'am to nervous to play!

It's hard for me to just try out a guitar pedal without looking over my back!When I was younger I did'nt care what anyone thought,so it was much simpler.Now that I have gotten olde...
