In the G3 live from Denver DVD(that must be purchased to be truly enjoyed) after Steve loses the 3 neck jem, the first song that he plays with EVO sounds like Satch to me. Though I have a hard time getting there cause' I have to watch satch at least a couple of times.

I like the AKG C-1000. It's about $200(at most), but you can probably get it cheaper. If you want a decent mic, you probably want a condenser mic, and those you have to pay extra for. It is a good all around mic for my studio use.

"he didn't think it was that great. He picked up two major mistakes where SV actually misses the strings and makes a some pretty big mistakes. Then he said at one of the faster shred parts that SV is playing out of key and not using the right scale." That's all fine and dandy, but that's just an opi...

That's an artist for you. Some good, some bad. Steve Vai really shines when he gets it right though.

I have to agree with both of the above statements. It seem to me that MY lyrics, though few, come when I have the headphones on and I'm listening to the song repetedly. Sometimes you have to give it a rest and come back another day. After work is a good time to throw on the phones and a mic and see ...

Ahh, forget what I said about Steve Vai. I'm full of shit. It's testosterone filled 15 year olds who are concerned about that sort of stuff.

Eddie Vs. Angus. Who would win? That's the kind of question that I get so sick of hearing. (If you respond to this question, you will be thumped and thwarted) It's all music for cryin' out loud. Come to think of it, I think Steve Vai is partly responsable for that A vs B competetion mentality. Not t...

I bought a Jem 7vwh and loved it. It had a feel to it however that felt like it was made by a machine unlike my G&L. After I got over that aspect of it, I started to see it for what it was- a well built guitar. It has a bolt on neck, but it has nearly as much sustain as my Washburn Eagle neck throug...

Some of the ones that I like so far is: Nuno Bettencourt Paul Gilbert BucketHead Carlos Santata- (Listen to brothers) Eddie Van Halen Slash Tony McAlpine- (never thought about him before) Rex Carroll- another guy that nobody mentions. He's the lead guitarist for the Christian Band WhiteCross. This g...

Could be the tonal characteristics of the pickup. Try switching to a different pickup and see if it still happens.

It's a bit of a joke to seriously have music as a career. But since we are going to waste so many precious hours of our short lives endulging in music, might as well learn it so at least you can waste your life more efficiently. :roll: I think the real goal is to have something that stays around lo...
