Would it be illegal if I upload it on box.net or somewhere like that?

To Be With You Electric Version, NOT Paul Gilbert's

Hi guys! If someone could help me, it would be great! I heard Mr. Big's To Be With You the other day, but not acoustic version...this one was electrical...and it was not Paul Gilbert version, but a nice bluesy one...maybe it's just a cover, but the voice is pretty close to Martin's... If anyone has ...

Does it really make a big difference?:wink: Yes. End of discussion. If you can't hear the difference between E and Eb you need new ears. Its one of the main reasons Michael Romeo sounds like he does. And please, leave the tuning elitism at the door. I'm sure you're just fine being locked into only ...

If you don't need the whammy you could get a tremol-no for your guitar and lock the trem in place for the down-tuned stuff. Not a good solution but better than a capo, as that will mess with the double-locking concept... Why not get a dirt cheap guitar for the metal band? If tuning to Eb is so impo...

Unfortunatelly, another guitar is not an option...Although, one day...:)...but that day won't come soon... Capo, eh? Well, I could also play half a step higher if I tune it half a step down, but for some songs, in both bands, I need 24 fields...so capo isn't th best solution...although it might come...

Yeah, pentatonic really is over-used...

And I noticed, since I play a lot of blues, that I use a part of the blues scale even in metal, and it actually fits and quite often sounds good...

I don't really know how to write this but I use those 3 notes on A string e.g. 5-6-7....

Best way really is to just throw yourself into a few different pedals and see which one sounds most like 'you' when you're playing. Yeah, that would be the best choice, but when you live in Croatia and all pedal brands you can find are Boss, Ibanez, Behringer maybe and maybe one or two more, that t...

You're asking for a pedal that does an awful lot of different things there. I would look into a decent multiFX, or I would go down to your local guitar shop and ask if you can try a few good versatile distortion pedals. No, no... The key sentance from my question is: "I don't mind having a bit too ...
