    So your all having a look ha? I was surfing and saw this. Years ago a friend of mine did me a video copy of S Vai's ALS , i subsequently burnt it and had him killed but i digress. after it there was a spare 2 hours of tape (streaming video used to be put on it) and he put the above clip on...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    I created this post to see if the market has changed for the Dave Weiner guitar? --I know there are a couple of similar posts out there: however, they go off topic and are old. With that said, please do not go off topic in this thread. ;)...

    please excuse any grammatical mistakes and any words missed, I got a call from my uncle yesterday saying that Frank Gambale is coming to mangalore (my hometown) and hes arranged a meeting with him while hes at the airport to catch a flight to mumbai. I couldn't believe my ears, I was like OMG...

    I can play rock, blues, shred, thrash. I've even composed some songs. But I have zero jazz knowledge. I've wanted to learn it since i've seen guys do improvisations on TV where guitar, drums, bass, piano do their solos one after the other. I think it would increase my skills many fold. It would...

    Has anyone out there played the ESP Horizon FR(ash body) and FR II(alder body) ? I am interested in one of these guitars, and was wondering how they compare tonewise. Any help would be appreciated. :) Rock on!

    Yo, Last night I was flipping through the channels on my XM Radio trying to decide what to fall asleep to. Obviously there are loads of options, including a few stations that might be considered guitar-centric (Boneyard = 80s hair bands). But try to find something slightly off the mainstream...

    I know, I know, Satch, Vai, Malmsteen, Gilbert, blah blah blah blah blah, they all bring the same bag, sometimes cool tunes with mildly impressive licks... I'm not saying I can play them, but I am saying everytime I go to the guitar store there are at least a couple people that can. I wanna...

    I've been stuck in a playing rut for quite a while now. It's horrible. I can't really think of any songs or solos that I want to learn, or at least ones I'm capable of playing. I attempted to learn Cliffs of Dover again tonight, and it was disasterous. I've heard the song a million times, but I...

    Companion thread to: "Are you satisfied with your playing" A few years ago, I sat down with an EJ Tab book and learned Cliffs of Dover...mostly. It took weeks to commit it to memory, and I bagged it at about 10 secs from the end of the songs. It wasn't quite up to speed, EJ's style is so...

    I've noticed that lately my style has changed a bit - I'm playing more wide intervals and outside notes. I haven't studied this at all, and it's not a conscious decision, but it's taking my playing in a jazzier, Brett Garsed kind of direction. I don't really listen to Brett much and wouldn't...

    I have seen a bunch of shredder videos, but not a lot of videos displaying the best talented rythem guitarists. Anyone got some good ones? Billy Gibbons is one of my favorites.

    hi everyone i thought it would be a good idea to post good bands to check out. also add a bit about what they sound like, or who. heres a couple from me to get the ball roalling. also, just cause they may be big where you live, in other country, backwards one like here where pop crap rules...

    After learning some of Satch's stuff, I've started working on my legato technique way more than I used to. I really dig the smooth sound of it and would like to find more players that are really good at legato, so could you guys help me out? Who out there is just sick at legato, and what...

    I realise that it's all down to opinion, but I thought it would be interesting to see who fellow Jemsiters think is the best guitarist ever. My vote is for Steve Vai... ( I think he will be a popular choice:)) What do YOU think? Rock on!

    I have a Jem7v which I love but I have recently been thinking about picking up a second guitar to compliment its tones. I'm thinking mahogany with duncans because I'm looking to capture deeper richer tones and to play metal riffs but also handle blues cleans. I boiled it all down to Schecter...
