Oh Yeah! I forgot to mention the DVDs of the Guitar Grimoire! I have no opinion on these since I never bought any. I looked on the back of the Scales DVD case in Guitar Center and one of the pictures shows an individual with a robe on hiding his face and acting like a wizzard. :? Whatever! Get the b...

It's funny that finger size just became an issue. I posted a topic of hand size at the Kramer guitar forum and people discussed up to two pages! I was a newcomer and two pages was an accomplishment for me! :lol: Anyways my handsize is around the same as Vivian Cambell's, Billy Sheehan's, and Joe Sat...

Bravo 1 Eye!!!!!!! 8) The fog has lifted even higher!!! I just learned something new today!! Doh! I'm afraid that I'm no longer considered self-taught after 3 years! :lol: Bummer! That's an excellent overview of progressions and I am impressed. It's a unique approach for progressions (in my view) an...

Oh, I may have to warn all of you. The series is a bit expensive. The Chords and Voicings was $21.95, the Scales and Modes was $22.95 (or something around there), and the Progressions and Improvisations was $27.95!!!!! The Progressions book is larger but worth it. Amazon may have a better price. Hey...

Jumbo Frets VS. 6105 Frets

I need help badly! I had my Ibanez JS-100 (don't laugh I know it's Korean made) for about two years and the frets are really troublesome. They are worn and already medium-sized. I heard Jumbo Frets like those on the RG's are really comfortable and string bends can be accomplished with ease due to th...

The fog has lifted! About Progressions

For those on the recent threads regarding the complication of creativity and progressions I have a great testimony (I suppose)! I decided to discuss this here rather than all the previous topics since I have so much to talk about and I would like to introduce my guitar story. I began playing the gui...

Hey! This is my first post ever on the forum and would like to start here! I read a topic on Prince and how Steve gave the UV7PW (<-- is that correct?) to him and how he also played along with the New Power Generation. My sister is a huge fan of Prince as well as everybody from the 80's and I began ...
