My friend and I could not figure this out, my friend is an Electrical Engineering graduate who did his specialty in power engineering..... what the hell do the rectifiers in Mesa Boogie amps do. The best we could figure out, its a marketing term, because they lacked a better word... for...
Went to the Austin show and it was great. The set was so long I actually got tired of standing.(From 6 to 12:30 total). Anyhow I am not going to list the set list as it was just like the Houston show(or pretty close) review given already. The one plus we got in Austin was that Eric Johnson was...
I was lucky enough to get EVO tickets for this show.
We were told to line up in front of the office at 3:30. Of course everyone camps there like a theater line for Star Wars. So at about 3:40, a guy in a suit and vai t-shirt hands out our goodie bags. Each evo bag contains:
Sony has created a special page where fans can check out short sneak previews of all tracks from Steve's new album "Real Illusions: Reflections".
Share your thoughts on the album previews here!
I think would be great to see pics of the people here. And if you're playing your Jem much better!

Hey i was just wondering what some of everyone's favorite instructional videos are?
Ones where you either learned a lot, or ones that have some great playing on them, or perhaps there are some that have both?

I didn't know how to make a "poll" sorry.
But anyway, I was reading an article last night with Kerry King and he says that extreme speed picking can only be accompished with the Wrist not the Elbow.
Personally I pick from the elbow. What do you guys do?
I recently got my steinberger, I am totally loving it but I have one problem with it, namely the EMGs. I don't get on with them at all, they sound to fake and the sound is way too bright and sterile. Not to mention the clean tones.
The tones I aim for are far from bright, I try and get ridof...
Ok... those of you who know me know how I get when I'm on a mission. :)
About 6 months ago I embarked on a journey of "tonal discovery". I'd been playing Mesa amps exclusively (Triaxis/2:90 & Mark IV) for several years. When fiddling around with my fiancee's Deluxe Reverb one day, I had a "What...
Hey everyone. I'd like to know how you guys/girls practice from day to day. Do you have a special practice regime?
I'm currently working on the book "Speed mechanics for lead guiatar" by Troy Stetina. I think the book is really great and has alot of good exercises in it. I've said to myself "...
