    I have no idea but I’ve always heard that you can’t play a V seated :D
    Nice guitar by the way :thumb:

    Is that Black Cat? I can hear lyrics in my head...something something you’re gonna die.

    I can’t place the artist

    Haha, yes!! I was watching a Michael Neilsen YT vid about Nuno Bettencourt's sound and he opened the vid by playing this riff. It was driving me crazy because I knew it but figured it was an Extreme song. I had to ask him what it was, haha.

    Man good one. Was driving me crazy. I kept hearing the lyrics too but couldn’t make them out. I kept seeing flashes of Janet Jackson...like Rhythm Nation or something...but I wasn’t sure. Low and behold...but I don’t know who played guitar.

    If anyone is wondering, yes, you CAN tune a Gibson to Drop C with 9.5 gauge strings but its not very fun to play :confused:

    No idea but as soon as you added the pinch harmonic I figured it was something Zak was on.

    Here’s the wrong thing to say to metal fans...I may have to hide....lol
    I’m not a Zak fan as I really cant handle the pinch harmonics... Love his playing its just those squealies make me flinch...

    I’ll have to go into the Metalhead protection program and start going to Country concerts....:confused:

    Thanks for understanding...lol Ill cancel my line dancing lessons....

    Its odd as I love Rory Gallaghers use of them although its muted and not squealing if that makes sense.

    I’m a big Thin Lizzy fan and routinely cycle thru their catalogue. Great band! An aside my spouse was listening a tune a couple years back and I said “Wow your listening to Thin Lizzy” Her response was no its the “Black Star riders” I’m sure you all are aware of the link...
    So when I took her to see Judas Priest they where one of the opening acts (along with Saxon \m/ awesome!). Needless to say she was impressed and is now a Thin Lizzy fan. End of story.

    I now return you back to the original thread...lol

    Thanks Mark! Yeah I thought I’d try throw one out there for you and @Jimi Lightning but it was a busy day in here and just got swept under the rug. Death by Flying V! Ha Ha :D. J/K Scott.
