So yeah I got OWNED hardcore at the music store day before yesterday.

I was just looking for my regular light or medium gauge nicklewound strings for metal and rock.

I don't know much about strings yet so i asked about these cool looking FLATwound ones and the fucking MANAGER of the store said there all the same......

Obviously he was lying to make me buy the more expensive Flatwound ones, or he honestly knows jack shit about music and its instruments.

Flatwound strings are NOOOOOOOT the same as regular strings. There JAZZ strings. TThere completely smooth, hard to bend, extremely dull, has no balls.

And these were medium gauge, and oh my god, there the biggest fucking medium gauge strings I've ever seen. I had to file down the slots in the nut on my guitar. I tried not to make them deeper because that would fuck other strings up once I switch back, but I just tried to widen them so they'd fit.

And I can't tune higher than C.......

Looks like its Rammstein and Rob Zombie for me for a few weeks.

I just picked it up along with my England one  a while back. I didn't even know what it was at the time haha. My thoughts were "Hey that looks pretty cool! I'll take that one too!"

I was wondering why Glenn is always "plugged in" and KK isn't? I don't play guitar so I have no idea if it's a sound or guitar issue or his personal preference. I miss how they used to change sides during a show and it just seems that because Glenn is corded, he doesn't have the freedom to move around as much.  Thanks!

Joe There are many ways to hold the pick, you just have to become accustomed to the way you do it , if you change.
The way you have it in the second pic is probably the most traditional way. Rotate  the pick to where the point is pointing at the bridge, just leave yourself enough pick to still use.  Pointing at the bridge, you have a longer area to pick with, but a much shallower area. This is the way to the harmonics. You still need to pluck the string all the while slighlty controlling the oscillation of the string( not muting). Example.... when you pick the string normally, it vibrates in an oblong but large pattern. By controlling the oscillation, you make the string vibrate in a more unifrom manner that is a much smaller (tighter)  pattern. Try to lightly touch or brush the string with your thumb while you pick , it will sound dull at first, but practice and it will come to you naturally.
Now as for holding it at an angle, depends on what type of attack you want. What speed etc.
Experiment is the best thing to do, but don`t be bound by tradiotn, try whatever works for you.
I the tips of my thumb and finger to hold the pick, not the back where the knuckle is.

This is how I hold it:

[Bazookajoe_666] Friday, November 27, 2009 1:10:45 PM 
Naa that doesn't help either. I don't hold the pick the proper way. With your thumb and the side of your index finger or even at the proper 45% angle. I do it all backwards.

I hold the pick with my pretty much the whole tip of my thumb, nearly down to the middle knockle. I use the tip of my index finger for the other side, and occasionally my finger finger tip at the same time..

Like this:

Joe
 If you are using a traditinal style of pick (elongated triangle) then turn the pick where the longest part ofthe pick is facing the bridge and use the side to pcik with. It`s got the larger angle which actually gives you less area to pick with making the harmonics much easier. George Lynch does this and you`ve heard how he uses harmonics. I incorporated this into my picking years ago and it really does make a difference. I`ve also changed recently to the smaller Jazz picks(heavy gauge) that have the beveled edges. They work well as they have a smaller area giving the same effect as using the side of the pick.

I'm still working on my goal of learning all the rhythm parts of Painkiller by ear. I've like 85-90% done.

I literally can't do punch harmonics though, because of the way I hold my pick. So I do fake ones where the natural harmonics are. You just pick the harmonic like regular, but as soon as you do, press down on that fret and it keeps the harmonic tone, so it SOUNDS like a pinch harmonic, but its actually not. I can only do it in certain places, so that second riff in Painkiller is pretty well impossible for me right now haha.

It's easy to be over critical of yourself, Joe. It's good to hear yourself and recognize mistakes, but don't sweat the small stuff......
[Bazookajoe_666] Wednesday, November 25, 2009 9:23:36 AM 
I'm thinking about doing Metal Militia actually. Have been for a while.

I know one thing though, I should practice this shit more before I record it haha.

Thanks everyone.
