In the tender surrender video , Steve moves the tremolo arm all the way back and shakes it super violently , can i do that on my Pacifica? Because i just feel that the Pacifica has a limit to its abuse before things start flying.

How many kinds of tremolo arms are there since there is a vintage kind of tremolo arm.

Afraid to using the tremolo arm

:cry: i just bought my Yamaha Pacifica 112J yesterday! WEEE! But everytime i see Steve vai do his tricks with the tremolo arm , i feel like doing the same but i am afraid of spoling the stuff inside the guitar.

Any advice for me?

From your description of the Edge it does indeed sound like alternate picking. You are correct, it is basically a down/up pick motion. Very important technique so I suggest that if your not familiar with it, it would be worth investing some time going through scales and such like using up/down plck...

What is alternate picking

What is alternate picking? Is it just up and down of the pciking hand?I seen the Beautiful Day Video by U2 and in the video , Edge plays the explorer with his hand stuck to the bridge and his fist is clenced together like a ball and he plays up and down on a string. Is that called Alternate Picking?...

Regarding the original question, I don't think it would be the best deal. You gotta remember that the postage from Thailand would be sky-high too, on top of the $450. The Slash pitch-bend thing you mention (used, for example, in Sweet Child) is achieved by pressing the back of the neck forward slig...

Is it worth it? Epiphone Les paul. Weird color.

http://community.webshots.com/album/140656552hiPwwJ is this a rip off ( someone in singapore selling for $450)? The color looks really really weird in the photos. I seriously need an electric to start with. I have seen Slash use them and bend the sound with the movement of the body. It says limited ...

Samick Rockwell / Explorer Vs. Yamaha Pacifica 112

Which is better. My friend is offering me Singapore $290 for the samick rockwell and the softcase. My names Fintan and the explorer just matches my name. The weight isn't too heavy and its slim thats what i like about it. However , someone is also offering me a Pacifica 112 owned less than 6 months ...

Ok final Question.....if u compare the pacifica 112 to the Epiphone les Paul , which one produces more feedback on stage. Too many variables here. I can plug a Sears guitar into my 320W all-tube Rivera and get it to feedback so hard Nigel Tuffnel sends me a cease & desist letter. I can plug a PRS D...
