Please assault my poetry! but we can still be friends!

I'd love all forms of vicious scrutiny. Know Not Where You Go I don't wanna go where you...

barnabus gave a pretty thorough "flow-check", so I stick to the other part of the poem I found disconnecting. it seems you wrote this in a fairly centered state, not too intense at the time, which is good, keeps you from going apeshit. but by the same token, there's a lot of heavy duty description h...

Boss GT MIDI

I use a Boss GT-3 and I am currently exploring using electronic samples from software in my laptop live. My biggest interests would be to use the tap tempo from my pedal to affect tempo-based effects in my MIDI software. Has anybody tried anything similar to this?

patzer layed it out nice and simple, there's a whole world of new guitar playing to be accessed. some other suggestions... find a new band or artist, and learn a song or two by them, try avoiding tabs, it's always more rewarding to do it by ear. learn a song by an old favorite. buy a pedal!(yeah, I'...

it's good that you have a goal in mind. practice in your comfortable range first, and never strain your vocal chords, no matter what, a sore throat is never the result of good practice. a tired throat maybe, but not sore.

I find that different songs elicit different singing styles. If i'm singing a song with a lot of suspended notes, that pass over chord changes, I usually give much looser, blurry, vowel sounds, in order to emphasize the emotion. Super-lyrical songs can be a good place to experiment with word-paintin...

I used to really envy my friend, because he could make this wicked-high squealing sound, didn't understand what it was, till I started asking the same question you are. The head voice, as cole referred to it, is classicaly called "falsetto". Nick Drake, Thom Yorke, both of them have very pronounced ...

this is called inversion. inversion is when you play the same notes of a chord in a different order. if you play EADGBE XXX232 you are playing D in it's "second inversion" because the third note of the triad(A) is the root note. if you played the notes in the order of F#, A, D... EADGBE XX423X that ...

customizing a guitar is always very sentimental, a lot of people buy chep uitar and just customize them until they're as good as expensive ones. If you plan on continuing with this guitar, like replacing hardware and maybe the neck, then repainting would sound great, but I agree that it wouldn't be ...

our biggest difficulty here is that there are a few good venues, and plenty of bars, but it is very difficult to contend with the hardcore scene, being that I prefer to play psychedelic rock, though jam bands have been more popular.

thanks, I bought it online, and can't find my receipt, so I'll have to work at it, maybe if I call musiciansfriend they have records of sales receipts, but I doubt it.

Fender Stage 1000, busted?

I've already asked this question here, but it happened again, and I was wondering if I could get some new input. I have a one-year old Fender Stage 1000, the new kind with DSP effects, which I have used in a few concerts and outdoor ampitheatres, and it's one up to "9" on the volume three or four ti...

I doubt you'll be looking at this, but to fix the similar problem I had on my Ibanez Aseries, I just went out and bought two new tremelo springs and hooked them on the two extra trem anchors, worked like a charm, though my tremelo arm takes a little more muscle these days :)
