    Anyone have any ideas about how Frank solos? Here is what I have so far 1. Strange timing almost East Indian 2. A fair amount of open strings 3. A mix of pentatonic, mixoliydian, maybe Dorian/ natural minor scales 4. Some obvious blues runs mixed in 5. Ouch my head hurts Somebody help...

    Hey there, I'm into the first 3 min of the song and I felt really dissapointed until the piano started playing. I was expecting something else so that might have to do something with it. The part where he uses more 'classical' instrumetns like the harp though feel more empty. Just spitting...

    "Back in the day" we had the guys like Satch and Vai, and Nuno and George Lynch, plus guys like Scott Ian from Anthrax and the guys from Metallica and Megadeth. But... Who are the guys that the 15 year olds want to grow up to be? The UK guitar magazine try to convince us it's Trivium and...

    There are no right or wrong answers here! What do you think defines your sound? Given that maybe most professional guitarists are heard through their recorded output, is your recorded sound your real sound and your live sound just an approximation, or the other way round? In my case, anything I...

    OK I'm sitting here and I'm supposed to be writing a report on the implications of some impending legislation on a client's position in the polymers industry. but I'm actually surfing on youtube. (no I won't be billing for my time on that :p) When I was younger I was probably the best guitarist...

I know Doctors that smoke it, lawyers, sheesh, it seems like every time you look around someone's being brought up on charges for some drug...

    I was just on the sweetwater forum and replied to a thread about influences and since this is my favorite forum by far I thought I would share my thoughts on this issue. Yes, I believe that Eddie Van Halen has gone off the deep end but thinking about it seriously, this is the guy who inspired me...

    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...

    It's almost funny. But for those of us old enough to catch the bands on their way out, but without a chance to see them, it's actually kinda cool. Guys our age, 40ish and up, have some money, so we can afford tickets to see pretty much anyone we want. Today Iwas trying to think of some bands...

    Lagunitas Kill Ugly Radio Style: IPA Origin: California This IPA tribute beer to Frank Zappa which according to the Zappa.com web site was supposed to be called "Absolutely Free" but I'm sure this title ran afoul with the feds as a misleading piece of advertising, was named "Kill Ugly Radio"...
