Try some lemon oil, soaks in quick and lasts a long time. Do we see some EMG`s in this one`s future?   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by SDBinNY from Tuesday, May 11, 2010 1:00:17 PM)

Duncan Designed 103's... I guess they are modelled after the JB, which is far from my favorite pickup.... Still need to work on it some, the fretboard is drier than a popcorn fart.....

Well, I am a happy camper today. My oldest who just finished his first 4 week stint of guitar lesson`s has decided to keep playing and continue with lesson`s. He has made great stride`s in his playing but still has a long , long way to go.

I like the soloist that takes chances. Certain changes make he heart bleed, sometimes the only way to arrive at that point is to start out not knowing where to go.

I love the Going for it soloing type player.
[J.D. DIAMOND] Tuesday, April 13, 2010 3:09:29 PM 
Actually watching Glenn Tipton helped me use my pinky finger for soloing years ago,I can't do solos like Glenn and K.K.'s top-notch-fast stuff or like Glenn's in Painkiller,but I can do something like the solos in Electric Eye...thats as far as I really can go without actually taking guitar lessons or watching a video for lessons ect... I've never watched a video for guitar lessons or had anybody teach me,I've learned all by myself,I do more solos like Jimmy Page,Ace Frehley and Angus Young...stuff like that mixed with some solos that are easy for Glenn and K.K..

But I like playing in the vien of old these rock solos because although Steve Via,Yngwie Malmsteen ect..are all kick ass and thier jaw-dropping excellent guitar soloing is something I'll never be able to do at the same time its something I've NEVER wanted to sound like or being "that good" because everybody sounds like that these days man,I like the old 70's twanggy sounding guitar solos like Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath in the early days,shit like that to me has punch and balls and has more attitude than Yngwie. Glenn and K.K. are top-notch shredders too but they have that old-school punch and balls attitude.

I used to do power chords with my index and ring finger, but I needed to work on my pinky strength badly, so now I do them with my pinky instead.

I'm a rhythm guitarist so I dont have to worry about soloing. :D
[K2M] Tuesday, April 13, 2010 12:33:03 PM 
You have long fingers.
Try the chord with fingers 1 & 3.
You could try the chord with fingers 1 & 2
It is a good excersize to make the two fret stretch(fret 1 up to a third fret) with Fingers 1 & 2. That stretch is a good setup for soloing.
you get a six fret stretch.   start anywhere, 1 finger fret one then finger 2 goes to the third fret.  finger 3 goes to the fourth fret. the pinky streches to the sixth fret. Edited at: Tuesday, April 13, 2010 12:35:52 PM Edited at: Tuesday, April 13, 2010 12:38:17 PM

Here's a video of Paschendale.

I did a couple faster tunes on there too just look around haha.

Oh NICE, MM!!!!!!! VERY nice!!! Love the Schecter!!!! Dude, very cool!! Can't wait to hear it LIVE!!!!!!!!!!  HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!  Our guitarist (Hawkeye) uses a  blue Jackson that looks VERY similar to your guitar there on the left (Ibanez, right?) His is some Van Halen thingy. He runs a full Marshall stack and it really blares. I cannot comment on those pedal things since I would not know what is what. He uses two onstage as well. I use a VocalPro 2000 (?) for my live vocal effects. I only use it for short bursts of echo in songs like Rebel Yell and such. I hate relying on those things since I feel it takes from the vocal performance when you over do it!!! 

We actually blew a main on the PA last show!! THAT is a piss off! $700 to replace it but we really need it. We have a show tonight but will not need our own PA, as the place has their own but we will need ours in two weeks!!! The subs are those B52 deals. VERY powerful as well. Overall , a really nice sound system.

I`ve tried the Valveking before and it is a great amp, gives some good 80`s metal tones. Peavey really did a good job on the voicing for it!

New toys....On the right a Schecter C1 "She Devil".  On the cab a Peavey Valveking 100 watt head.  Also a new Ibanez tube screamer and a cheapo Behringer noise reduction unit.   The head is HOT!  Worth giving a listen to if your in the market for new gear and only 549.00 US brand new........
[Bazookajoe_666] Sunday, March 21, 2010 1:08:55 PM 
Thanks I guess haha.

But yeah I'm definitly gonna do a better version when I get some free time. The only part I have to figure out is that part at the very end where I was strumming really fast sliding down the neck.

I sent my son to a guitar teacher. he digs it. We had a hard time with me teaching the guitar. I dont know why. He likes the  guitar lessons. He plays the piano all day. doesnt practice the guitar too much. My daughter is a drummer (school orchestra).

The thing that gets me the most is he won`t flex his wrist, he keeps moving his entire arm at the elbow!!! fretting is good, just doing basic bar chords right now , but he`s been practicing alot lately. I am going to get him a decent junior size acoustic for the lesson`s.
House full of girls!!  Tread lightly there SDB!

I know what you mean, but I have a houseful of girls that want to learn. I think the hardest part is watching them develop dexterity, because we have been at it so long that it is hardly a thought for us most of the time. As much as I despise tabs, it seemed to help them out if I gave them one and let them deal with it at their own pace. Although it is nothing they do consitantly, we go through this during the winter months the most.....

well, after several failed attempts at teaching my oldest son to play, I have signed him up for lesson`s at a local shop. It wasn`t that he didn`t get it, just in the "patience" dept. I didn`t have it!!!
Starts first week of next month, so we`ll see.
[K2M] Friday, March 12, 2010 4:28:23 PM 
I was impressed by the thumb behind the neck Joe. I do the same. If i am chording in the first postion my thumb comes up. I am conscious of my thumb postion.

[Bazookajoe_666] Thursday, March 11, 2010 9:17:39 PM 
I just feel more comfortable with the thumb over, I switch between hanging and planted on the neck a lot. I just do what feels naturally, but I aim aware of the "proper" technique and all that stuff.

As for my fingers, can't really help that haha, my fingers are fucked. Especially the pinky and ring finger, they lock all the time.

The guitar is fixed now. I even learned how to set the intonation properly by myself too.

Damn good stuff, Joe, keep it up... One little bit of advice, try to keep your thumb off the top of the neck. Plant it in the middle of the neck, and let your fingers straighten out.

What was the issue with the guitar, or haven't you had it looked at yet?

Eventually.

Gonna try to do Nostradamus, Freewheel Burning, Metal Meltdown, possibly some other Priest stuff. Black Magic by Slayer. I by Sabbath hopefully. Maybe some old school Metallica. We'll see haha.

But for now I'm just gonna take it into the store to see what they can do about the grounding issues and that pot being burnt out or whatever. Somethings not right anyway.

Yeah it did take a while haha, but it was totally worth it.

For that kind of guitar the action is so LOW..... its amazing how low it is. Get some fretbuzz but you get that everywhere.

This guitar is definitly a step up from the previous version they had of it.

And my knob setup is strange.

You know how the first knob is suppose to be volume? It isnt..... its like a second tone knob, except BOTH knobs work at the same time for whatever pickup selection you have. It makes no sense haha.
[SDBinNY] Thursday, March 04, 2010 12:53:43 PM 
Looks killer, Joe. Really cool that they relocated the jack on those, too. I don't like the cord sticking out of the lower bout like the older models had, they area  disaster waiting to happen. Took them long enough to get it to you, though, and I hope it was worth the wait !

DAMN, this guy has some "crunch" to his axe!

[guitardude] Tuesday, February 16, 2010 5:34:59 PM

Very cool, glad I could help. I think the Screamin Demon`s geared for a more high mid tone that makes the harmonics jump out with a smooth low and low mid to give george that creamy overdriven sound he has. It`s a great pu either way.
The X2N is a screamer, very highoutput. Watch the lows, it can get muddy. The X2n should work better with the EL-34 tubes since they are focused more in the mids. On  6L6`s or 5881`s , you may have to roll the low end back and crank up the highs. I`m eager to hear them, let me know when you post some tunes with both pu`s!

Guitardude. I went for the Dimarzio X2N. Ordered it yesterday. That will go in V.
I really like the "Screaming Demon". It is a Med. Output, but very crunchy. The clarity is amazing. good for recording.
THat will go in the Soloist. That one plays like butter. which is cool for a while. THe Demon will give the axe the Kill sound. The Trembuckers were too muddy
[guitardude] Wednesday, January 27, 2010 6:43:19 PM 
K2M
Had to give some thought, but if you want a screamer, then try the Seymour Duncan Full Shred or the Dimebucker models. For Dimarzio, try the X2N, all of those are very high output and full frequency pu`s. They should satisfy your craving .
