For headphones you can't really beat Beyer DT100's which only cost around £80 over here.

For nearfield monitors have a look at Alesis Monitor One or Tannoy Reveals. Both should come in under your budget.

I'd love to see some pics from that tour as well.

Vailogy777 - didn't you mention that you were at the Newcastle gig on that tour, the same one I was at?

it just isn't as good as the cubase, or more comparable to project 5 nuendo. Hmmm I'd have to disagree I'm afraid, I've used Cubase since about 1994 in both professional and amateur applications and I have to say I much prefer Cakewalk - I'm currently using Sonar 2.2 and I find it the most flexable...

Play.com are now listing a release date of 23rd Feb. I suspect that in a few days this will be put back again. Come on Mikey - give us a release date!! You cannot possibly tell me that there is no commercial release date. The publishers must have a date for Europe, they couldn't run a business witho...

The squiggly lines mean a spread chord where most of the notes are sort of grace notes which have no defined time. Also the squiggly line usually indicates that all notes are held for the length notated by the chord, not what you want when sweep picking! Sweep picked lines (i.e. Arpeggios) should be...

My 470 had this a little - go to IbanezRules.com and there is a walkthrough to get your trem sorted. Mine now has a 99% accurate return after following the tutorials on the site. The main problem I have now is that the bar is constantly loose - it's driving me insane and I haven't found a decent way...

I saw Vai at newcastle city hall and it was so loud that my girlfriend at the time...cried! :D I was at that gig too - right in front of the PA! I was ill at the time and the volume was so much I all but passed out. Everyone I've spoken to who was there said it was the loudest gig they've ever been...

Replies: 8

I use this technique quite often and I always pick the first note on each string. It's easy to do using a sort of combination of sweep picking and tapping, using your middle finger to tap so you can still hold your pick of course. It take a little practice to get it clean, so just start really slowl...

I actually managed to get one direct from Steves studio thanks to the bass player with Thomas McRocklins band, who I met in Newcastle years ago :lol: He told me they were just lying all over the console, so Steve said 'Help yourself!'. It's a green LWH one with Steves scrawl on one side (and it's be...

The Eventide does diatonic pitch shifting i.e you can program a scale into it and it will harmonize according to that scale. Most cheap "harmonizers" don't do this and harmonize chromatically, i.e. to a fixed scale which means that if you set it to harmonize a major third above the root of the scale...

Not even a vague chance.... The voltage running through your guitar is minute - no where near enough to cause a spark. Also the only way to get a spark would be for the earth lead to disconnect. Thirdly it would take a hell of a big spark to ignite some dry tissue paper! I wouldn't lose any sleep ov...
