Re: Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame - Thoughts?

Speaking of Rush... (I love them) I was listening to a relatively new band caleld Coheed and Cambria and the lead singer has a similar voice to Geddy Lee. There is one song in which he sounds EXACTLY like Geddy Lee - and in fact that song in general sounds like a Rush song. I bring it up because I t...

Re: Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame - Thoughts?

Until Rush gets in the Rock and Roll HOF is a joke. Rush has more consecutive gold records than any rock act except the Beatles and the Stones.

Re: Classic Jimmy Page sound. Help plz.

Lord know I love gear, but you don't need gear to sound like Jimmy. You need chops!

Keep practicing and you'll be able to play Communication Breakdown in no time.

By the way, I love the name "Kayleigh" - and I love that Marillion song by the same name.

Re: New pickups in strat

I've played just about every humbucker on the market! The issue for you is finding a humbucker that is going to match those noiseless pickups. I haven't seen a SSH setup with noiseless pickups - ever! I love those noiseless pups, btw. Hmmm... I would check out the Pearly Gates, but also the Custom C...

Re: Strat Pickup Earthing Problem!

Yeah, the metal isn't getting hot enough for the solder to hold. My suggestion would be to pre-solder the claw (no wire) and make sure it is hot enough (let the iron sit there for a few seconds). Once you have solder that is sticking nice a strong, then solder the sire to that solder joint.

Re: 72 tele deluxe

Good stuff here. You can swap necks, but I don't think you'll want to... as for the pickups... another option is to look for p-90 in a humbucker size. Gibson makes them (p-94s) as well as Duncan (and a few other companies). Or, you can get a new pickguard sized for traditional p-90s. Is there a reas...

Re: lost like an abandoned puppy :(

I agree - sound slike you are doing just fine. What might help is to find a person or two to play with... playing with others is not only fun, but it makes you better.

Re: The Dali's Back...

Sounds good Ande!

I recently got an Epi Sheraton so I'm playing a bunch fo old Rush. Plus, I recently watched the "Rush Movie/Documentary" and Alex LIfeson plays his semi-hollow Gibson on many of the tracks and videos... so naturally I started to play Freewill on the Epi too! Great stuff!

Re: The Dali's Back...

Squier custom Tele. I swapped the pickguard with one that holds humbuckers and wired the thing with the Jimmy Page wiring system. I still have the p-90s and pickguard if I want to switch back.

Re: Mexican Stratocaster vs American

The odler MIM strats lacked in one very important area: pickups. If you outfit a MIM strat with good pickups and electronics you can have a very capable guitar. Fender realized this and they've been producing special run MIM strats over the last 5 or 6 years with USA pickups. If you are looking at a...

Re: Good songs for two guitars?

My first thought was Thin Lizzy or Iron Maiden... but perhaps some AC/DC?
