    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...

    For a long time, I've been trying to figure out which amp to get, so let's look at the detail below. I am definitely more of a metal kind of guy, but lead stuff is what I really want to concentrate on; so far, I've been looking into something from Boogie or Engl and I don't know what to get...

    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...

    Howdy All, About to build up a basswood RG so I contacted DiMarzio about a pickup combo recommendation. They recommended a PAF Joe in the neck position with an F-spaced Breed in the bridge position. I'd like to gather your opinions, experiences, and suggestions. Thanks! Here's what I asked...

    So I'm about to get either one of these amps, I'll be stretching my budget if I go for the 100R and probably don't need the 100w, but I like it for the duel channels, reverb etc. Just wondering if there is any real difference in terms of tone, I play primarily shred/jazz fusion and somtimes...

    Well I have no use for this anymore as now my distortion is handled by a modeller. Pedal is in great shape - never gigged with. Description of the mod done by Joe @ http://www.bodenhamer-electronics.com/: Switch left is a very smooth, warm, saturated, tube-ish distortion. The tones of the...

    For some reason whenever the weather gets nice, this butt hole things it's very important that he cleans his car, and while doing it plays BOn Jovi way louder than it should be. The dumbass doesnt even feel embarassed to be listening to it, instead he seems almost proud. That's right, you didnt...

    Without typing 5,000 words, how does this progression work? If you're in Amin, then play a Gmaj, then a Dmin, the E should also be a minor, right? Well, there's a song I'm listening to that goes to E Major and you think it'd be a minor since A Minor is the key. I swear, I'm never going to...

    So I'm looking for two backup guitars for my RG550MXX. Right now I've been using a Gibson SG Standard and a Kramer Focus 6000 but on both the bridges sit too high for me to play at my fullest. What are some great guitars with recessed floyds in the 800-1200USD price range? I mostly play death...
