Just noticed last Thursday that they are playing in my area tonight. Then I realized I've never seen Mr. Big. Have seen Sheehan countless times and Gilbert on the G3 tour, but never Mr. big. Anyway, looking forward to shredding.
Tonight I'm off to see The Winery Dogs. So far on this tour they played Osaka on July 16th, Tokyo July 17th and again tonight here in Tokyo on July 18th.
If you don't know about them, you NEED to have a listen.
Do a YouTube search. For those who want to...
I just bought my ticket for Foxboro, MA on Wednesday. Anyone gone? Are they killing? Are they hanging out to meet the fans after the shows?
I'm kind of hoping to meet Paul Gilbert and Pat Torpey after the show. I've met Billy a bunch of times already. :)
Just a heads up, received this in an email today!!
There are only 2 weekends i probably can't make between now and the end of the year...and that's one of them!!! :x :cry: So i will probably have...
At the risk of sounding like a dumbass by using a lot of netspeak...
I love the band but I'd kinda prefer they keep doing their own thing.
So, I know for a fact there are members here who love the look and sound of a semi-hollow body guitar, be it a Gibson 335/345/355 or an Ibanez AS-200 or any of a hundred others.
I personally love the look of these guitars, so I thought I'd open a thread to see what we've all got hiding under...
Hey, this happened a couple months back, but someone at work asked me to tell the story again, so I thought I'd share it here.
My oldest son (9) wrote a letter to an artist he liked. The guy sent him a letter back about how he got started, and a book of blank pages my son could write his own...
I have a RG2550 Prestige that comes with Edge Pro, I've noticed that the tremolo bar that comes with it is significantly heavy that it affects tuning stability.
I have noticed the Edge Pro itself is a rather heavy tremolo unit so tuning is affected when the angle of the guitar changes while...
Hey guys, I didn't know where to put this but I kinda wanted to make a Thread for all the ppl that play bass. I played upright bass before I played electric and I played those before I played electric guitar. I actually had a few questions, I have a Yamaha BEX-BS (Billy Sheehan Model not his...
I suspect a bunch of us know, met, was in a room with, did work for, gave a lesson to, or jammed with someone notable/famous. I thought it would be fun to have a thread dedicated to the purpose of 'bragging' about it. ;)
This could be fun to watch.
I'll go first.
I know the Fuel guys...
My '97 rg7620's pickups act like a microphone. I can hear my voice when I talk(LOL I can hear my voice through my guitar amp when I talk). Is this normal? Why would this happen? What can I do to fix?
Shame on you guys!!! Frank Zappa hasn´t been talked about for a looooong time here.
Without him, we probably wouldn´ t have been sitting here today, discussing guitar and guitar-sounds. Not only was he a guitar oriented inventor, he was also the last centurys largest musical geniuos, in the...
Who do you guys think are responsible for MAJOR changes to rock
guitar playing, the guitar itself, etc. through the years??
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.
at the house of blues. i wasn't going to go but a friend of mine who i turned on to vai wanted to go so i tagged along. after 6 vai shows, why do i need a 7th? it was worth it, although there were bad points. i was hoping to be done earlier than we were. maybe i'm getting too old, i don't...
STEVE VAI Pics - Stockholm -04
I've got some pictures from The G3 gig at Göta Lejon, Stockholm 16/6 2004 I took there.
I don't know if this is the right place to put them.
Got much more if someone is interested.
I booked my tickets last night. My wife & I will be flying to Seattle for a visit to see my Aunt and the three of us will be going to the show Saturday night.
I can't wait... this will be my first time going to see Vai. :D
Does anyone have a heads up on his play list and band members for...
I like personalizing my guitar, what mods or ideas do you guys have for me? This is probably the most inventive guitar community I've seen, I can't wait to see what you've got. I'm already looking into changing the pickups, so stuff besides that.
The guitar in question:
in this month's Guitar One. I did several double-takes looking at the pics, but on the CD in this months GO Vai says he will be fitting all of his guitars with this system. Here is the link:
Some people were asking to see some pics of these recent works, so here they are. They aren't swirls per se....not meant to be. I just call them "dips" as I'm literally dipping them in and out.
The bass is a beginner model GSR100. I had bought it for my neighbors kid. The kid's birthday was...
