I'm totally addicted to Dream Theater too! :) I got into their music last fall and I'm not turning my back on them any time soon. They are simply one of the greatest bands around!!! They are incredibly gifted. Their music is so passionate, deep, provoking, technical, complex, abstract, melodic, heav...

I took the test and this is what my results say: "Hearing Test Results You correctly identified 26 tunes (out of 26) on the Distorted Tunes Test. Congratulations! You have a fine sense of pitch." 8) I didn't think the test was difficult at all. But at least I got all answers right... this means I'll...

Oh yeah, I believe that last Tuesday night (right after I last posted on this topic) Kaki played in the house band for the late night show Last Call with Carson Daly. :) She was pretty good... she actually played the electric. I think she played some Def Leppard and some Police. To be honest, I wasn...

I totally agree, she's totally amazing!! :) The first time I've seen her was about a year ago when she was on the Conan O'Brian Show. She played this piece that was so unbelievable. I thought that could never be played on the guitar!! She's the kind of person that makes me want to throw my guitar ou...

I don't have have a Jem7wh or a Universe but I think the Universe has a darker tone than the white jem. Judging by the Ibanez website or Dimarzio website..... The Universe has a basswood body which is a bit darker than the alder body of the Jem. The Universe has Blaze pickups which has a dark scoope...

I'll try to relax all I can if I do perform next Friday. I'm excited in a way though. I think I'll pull it off just nicely. Yeah, I'll t...

I'm auditioning for the National Anthem performance! Help!

When I was listening to the announcements today at my high school, I heard about signups and auditions for the Star Spangled Banner performance at a school assembly next week. I already signed up to play my guitar rendition and will audition on Wednesday (2 days!!) I'm not totally freaked out about ...

I use my 7-string for everything instead of playing just rhythm. I find it very useful for solos, rhythm, and other lead playing. Afterall it's my only electric at the moment. It's quite a workstation for me... great tones from Dimarzio pickups, a 5-way selector, a locking trem, 24 frets, a synth pi...

Thanks Simon, I already knew about the midi capabilities. However my MobilePre doesn't have midi inputs or outputs. I do however have a separate Midiman USB connector that can send and receive midi signals throught the respective plugs. I figured that the synth could be tweaked just a little bit if ...

I agree that appreciation is very subjective, unfortunately. We can say all we want and not everyone is going to buy our comments. Like I said before about Steve Vai and Jason Becker... those are my opinions. I appologize if my last comment about Busted was a little harsh to some of you... but it's ...

Here's some photos that were just taken a half hour ago. Notice that my guitar is a very very dark purple... it's supposed to be Cosmic Blue (like CB in the RG1527CB name) but it's really purple. I don't care about it really... it's kindof sexy... girls would love this!! :P It also features a Roland...
