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 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.

I wouldn`t go as far as saying the Vetta has more than you will ever ned, even though it does. It`s just you will never need another amp ever again if you`re tastes in music change, the amp will change with you , or think of it this way....it`s extremely versatile!!!
I don`t know about the MkII`s and how they`re controlled.

The Vetta is like 2 or 3 times the price of MKII. And from the specs and stuff I read, it just seems like it has a tone of stuff you'd never use or need.  Although the footswitch that you can get for it to control all the built in pedals sounds fuckin sweet.

Can the MKII do the pedal thing too?

The Vetta is awesome. It`s a digital amp. It has tons of power , no matter the load you put on it (4,8or 16ohms) . Tubeamps require that you match the load by a switch on back, no big deal though. With the Vetta, you can have doing a emulation of any Marshall on the left channel and a emulation of a Mesa Boogie on the right , or vice-versa!! Any combination you can think up, it`ll do. It has all kinds of "pedals" stored internally andwith the foot controller you can get for it. That`s really all you will ever need. It would be like having a rackful of gear on your backline.
Just get two cabs for it so you can explore in stereo.
I tested one out a few years back and ended up staying several hours trying all the diferent things it can do. And I still didn`t get close to exploring it all.
The Mk II`s are tube, and that is my favorite for tone. But if you want the Vetta, go for it, you won`t be sorry.

I've been kind of interested in getting a new amp for a while and then I saw you guys talking about the Spider Valke MkII amp.1,500$ isn't a half bad price.

What do you guys think of the Spider valve MkII COMPARED to the Vetta? There both Line 6.

K2M
I have looked at the Line6 amps and I like them, I had a couple of the Line6 PODS that were good. The first I sold due to it`s complexity, I wanted to do changes on the fly and diging into a menu wasn`t what I wanted. I then went with another lesser POD but it broke. 
I now have that Behringer and love it. I `ve found it easy to dial in the tones on the Behringer to work well with the EMG`s in my guitar.
Check out the new Marshall combos, The Haze and the Class5, affordable and all tube.
The class5 only has a volume, bass, mid and treble  that`s it!! I think with my DS-1 or my Silver Dragon in front of it , it`ll scream!!
Right now, an amp is a definite after christmas purchase, that is unless I get cold feet again, as usual.

When I was using the BBE,. I used it to enhance my signal after all that processing dulled it up. My EQ was set to boost the upper frequenicies and the level for solo`s.
[K2M] Friday, November 06, 2009 2:46:37 PM 
I like the Id of setting the EQ flat. and getting a level boost. I would use one or the other to color the sound. I would use the bbe.
See if the signal boost from the eq sounds good. Maybe for solo's.
The Cry baby is something i dont use much. It is great for trippy soloing or funking riffs. but i never liked the way it colored my sound. they are fun to play with. But just for a while. IMO the wah wah takes over.
The wah was used as a "filter" when it was left half open/closed to give use a mid range cut/boost. to cut through. I like to go for the tone without the cry baby. It is good to have around sometimes. I never start from there.

I am making an assessment based on what i like.
JD the Eq in you signal chain is adding that desired extra crunchness.
THe BBE will do the same thing. IMO The BBE will Make your sound Sizzle. Kind of a pro mod additive.
Gives you a modernized crunch.  [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by J.D. DIAMOND from Thursday, November 05, 2009 5:33:11 PM) Edited at: Friday, November 06, 2009 1:43:05 PM

 That is the question of the ages!!
Here is a simple rule for what pedal in what order... process your distortion, don`t distort your processing.
The HM-2 should be first the your EQ .
EQ`s are notorious for being noisy whitenoise (hiss), if you put it in front of the HM-2 then your are distorting your noise!!
If you were to have a setup like I once had, .... this is the order you could consider 
Compresser, distortion, wah pedal,eq,phaser or flanger, delay, chorus, noise gate BBE or any other type of signal enhancer.
Now that is not something that is set in stone, experiment and see what  you like. That was the order of what I had when I was gigging. The wah pedal would find itself after the eq from time to time, not sure why I would change it, just did.
Also, use a regulated power supply, not the batteries. As the battery dies, then even in the off position, the pedal will affect your signal by not allowing it to pass thru properly.
Now, with that said, there are some pedals that offer a true bypass feature when off and then the bad battery shouldn`t mess with your signal.
KK and Glenn both once said that they had pedals in their boards (interview was from the 80`s) that they never used anymore, but didn`t remove them because it may affect their tone .
