    Just picked up a Holdsworth sig series guitar about 3 months ago. Really a very well made instrument. I can't seem to find much info on it. Seems to be quite rare. Anyone have an idea of worth on theses things. I've never seen one for sale anywhere! Just trying to determine if I made a...

    http://www.innerviews.org/inner/holdsworth2.html Nice to finally find out what happened to the Planet X material. I can't believe he came back from the pub and erased it!

    Can you nail down the best tone you ever heard to the specific song, I can: John Petrucci on A Change of Seasons playing Achillies Last Stand during the solo. It's the best to me. What was he using at this time? Pickups, guitar amps? Anyone know? What kind of pickup could I use to achieve this...

    Hey folks, I'm researching for my first tube amp to buy. The problem is, all amps i hear - even the most hyped and loved ones - sound more or less dry and crumbly. I have a problem to find an amp that sounds full, wet, munchy, juicy and can scream at the same time. Think about wet crunch, if...

    Does Allan Holdsworth do any sort of alternate picking runs? I have seen/heard about his amazing legato but have never heard about him doing any alternate picking. Any other players that mainly use a legato approach?

    It kills me to see that none of the very well known guitar virtuosos started their carreers not too long ago. Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Greg Howe, Tony Macalpine, Richie Kotzen, Allan Holdsworth, Jimmy Page, Reb Beach.... etc all started 2 or 3 decades ago. IMO the newer guitarists...

    Or any 6 to 7 string? What can be expected for a learning curve. I was surprisingly comfortable with a seven string in my larger hands. But how intense is the transition and more importantly, how hard is it to go back and forth between the UV back to JEM?? What's everyones personal...

    I have recently been getting into Shred type stuff and my favorite tone is similar to Paul Gilberts. I currently have a Marshall JCM800 2204 50watt 1982 and an Avatar closed back cab w/ 2 vintage 30's. I use a Carl Martin Plexitone pedal. While I cannot currently afford a new amp, Is...

    I had someone ask me today what songs I played along with that helped my playing get better. I'm not talking about what tone you like or who you like to listen to. I'm talking about who did you sit and play to for hours & hours in the "woodshed" to develop your style. Tell who and why you...

    A.K.A. is Steve Vai slipping up his own bum-crack? I've loved Steve Vai for years, since I was about 10 actually, but recently he just seems to be far more egotistical and he's coming out with some crazy ideas (or at least, endorsing them.) Maybe it's just me, but the guy is just beginning to...

    Who do you guys think are responsible for MAJOR changes to rock guitar playing, the guitar itself, etc. through the years?? Mine are: 1. Les paul-for inventing the electric guitar 2. Jim Marshall-obvious reasons.. 2. Jimmy hendrix-for being really the 1st guy to play guitar that way. He made...
