Yeah, this is very interesting. Ok, so you guys are saying that even though my younger years as a guitarist were completely filled with large amounts of practice time that I would even be an example of someone who has natural talent. I was working on scales and stuff like that some then too. But mos...

Hah of course Vai though of that first! I was going around being proud of myself because I velcroed me an allen wrench on the back of the headstock!

I've discovered through that movie and reality TV that I don't want to see entertainers do unentertaining things. Why would I not want to see Metallica in group therapy? The same reason I didn't want to see Ozzy scooping up dog crap. I've liked Metallica for the music that they create, I don't want ...

Oh yeah, I've done that before!

I need to get to building some chords now that I got this program. Thanks.

If anyone still has any cool progressions they would like to share, by all means do so.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. This forum is one of the best. I can't stand it when stupid people with nothing interesting to contribute talk like this. Jason Becker's one hell of a guitar player. To chill with him would be cool as hell if you ask me. Thats really a neat thing to auctio...

Well, both of those guy have some really good melody and feel too. Its just, everyone knows them for playing fast and shredding. I think we as guitarists are just mesmerized by difficulty or shredding. Its a lot accessable to learn from too. You can learn someones technique and use it creatively all...

Nature Vs. Nurture for guitarists!

Here's one for ya. Natural talent. Just about all of my favorite guitarists explain how they worked and practiced very routinely and earned every skill that they possess. However, there are those people who seem to take to music very easily and seem to make quick gains with less practice. Some peopl...

I'm curious just how he gets that cat sound on Glorious. I've heard him do stuff like that before, but it sounds like he's perfected the technique! Anyone know?

I really couldn't get into Dragonforce. I gave it the Cd player skim, and all the songs start the same and the lyrics seemed to come in the same. I just don't like fast all the time. I like the juxtapostion of fast and slower, light and heavy. I feel that if you are a band that can't or won't play s...

I remember trying this one and I got to about the part with the cool sweep. Then I said, I need to practice more. But I'm gonna go try again.
