    I Think I Am Done

    Just to be clear I was not in a metal band with a vibraphonist though I did ask him to play on some tracks. Death metal is something I do in my home studio. The gigging I do is usually backing up somebody else with a name, I was a versatile guitar player even if my 1st love was metal. I...

    I Think I Am Done

    The vibraphonist I used to play with got signed and moved to LA. I was not asked to play on his release. That pretty much says it all doesn't it? Why overthink it? Not my best week. I decided to list all my equipment and guitars. I don't need them anymore and, more importantly, I don't want...

    Noiseless Pickups click/pop when touching pickup screws

    You might want to rub that pickguard down with a dryer sheet. 1 pass usually does it. I'm not sure if the sound you are describing is static but its worth a try. After that I would back those screws out and clean out any shielding tape that is in the threads. I've seen folks push the screw...

    My newest acquisition does not sustain very well.

    Tune guitar. Loosen top two neck bolts, loosen bottom neck bolts, you will hear a crack or click. Tighten neck bolts, retune. Sustain, yay. Every bolt on needs this right out of the box. Also check your pickup heights, magnets too close to the string will rob you of sustain and cause a...

    Saw Yngwie on sunday night and he still has it , check out the pic

    Does sarcasm really need an explanation? Those were all facetious quotes from Yngwie himself.

    Saw Yngwie on sunday night and he still has it , check out the pic

    Blackmore stated its so he can bend easier, so his fingers get under the string. Yngwie has stated it makes vibrato easier. McLaughlin did it because Django did it and he no longer does it just plays PRS with jumbo frets. I have a Blackmore strat it does make the guitar feel shreddy, if that is...

    "Tone is in the hands" - silliest buzzword of the decade?

    If it requires belief to exist it probably does not actually exist

    Best Distortion pedal

    It is a beast. I bought it to replace my ENGL Ritchie Blackmore Signature which was 150 watts. Honestly it sounds the same and is loud enough to play anywhere really, we'll maybe not Wembley. However it gets killer distortion from mild to way overboard and always stays tight.

    How do y’all handle sheet music on stage?

    I have an Ipad stand on rollers and I use a slide advancer that I setup on my footrest so I can use my foot. I also put the music into a google slide show. I also have a regular old sheet music stand and the music in sheet form just in case.

    Going bald in your 20s

    We should write a song about it. Hair! Good Gawd! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing! Yaiow! Red hair doesn't go grey or white, instead it just fades away. My hair used to be a bit redder than Mick Hucknalls during his heyday, or maybe CarrotTop but not curly, but now? Well at 53 its...

    NGD-FSR Player; Ebony Board

    It is a scientific fact that red guitars play faster especially if you put a Ferrari sticker on it. Also Pau Ferro is not crap. For decades high end basses came with Pau Ferro its a sustainable wood, not crap, beautiful. Stop wanting it to be rosewood its a different wood.
