Re: Marshall JCM-800

I'm 100% with bennyvx78 on this, those JCM-800 are tone beasts.

Re: how do you do a swirl paint design?

Dunno... those swirling techniques all seem to be perfectly doable by most people, with a bit of patience... but I don't know... when you see a swirl job done by one of those pros, they are just awesome. As said previously on this thread, this thing probably requires a lot of practice to look so goo...

Re: Some help/advice would be appreciated here

A few years ago I had a Megadeth cover band. I was the guitarist/vocalist. :shock: I find out that you need a lot of coordination to do the stuff, and mainly, you must practice your guitar parts so much to the point when your hands just "play by themselves", it's like you play without thinking.

How much bend to break a string?

That's an experiment I'd like to do, but I never was brave enough to carry out. :shock:

Re: What are you practicing at the moment ???

I'm preparing to begin on Heitor Villa-Lobos "Prelude No. 5".
I'm studying classical guitar these times, playing electric only with my band on gigs on weekends.
Classical music is just fascinating. :guitar

Green dots on my green dots!

I found out some (huge) sticker paper whose color was really close to UV7BK green, so I immediately bought it, then I took some time to draw some circles and cut them, then arrange them on my '96 UV7BK.
