    Lately, I've been working on my speed-picking. I'm trying to get faster with my up-down stroke, but can't get my pick to move fast enough and hit the string every time. I don't want to sound retarded here, I know the proper technique to hold the pick, but I'm wondering if my tension on holding...

    Here Are My Contributions: My Absolute Most Favorite, I will NEVER EVER get tired of this. This is the one reason i want to buy a 7 string. A great Shawn Lane Tribute.
  3. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    On the eve of the JEM20th announcement, it has become necessary to start a single, organized, contained thread where Ibanez customers of past and present can convey their dissatisfaction of the JEM/UV line to Steve Vai (and indirectly to Ibanez). Some of you are misguided in that you think...
  4. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Does anyone know where I can find some steinberger style bridges and nuts without a trem? The closest i've come to finding some was over on Ed Roman's site, but they seem to only have the bridges with trems. Might just have to wait it out and keep checking the bay.

    Hey guys, I've always tuned to E and played 9's and loved the tone/feel from that setup. Recently, I've been wanting to try out tuning to C. I bought 10's and tried to tune my Washburn KC-70V to C, and it still feels quite rubber-bandy and thin sounding. What string guage do you guys...
  6. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Does anyone know where I can get one? I would very much appreciate some info.
  7. Polls
    Does anyone here like this album? I personally love it. I originally bought the cassette when it came out and fell in love with it. I eventually transferred it from tape to CD. I might go quite a while without listening to it, but every time I get it out, it doesn't leave my CD player for at...

    Picked this clip up on the bumblefoot forum - very cool:
  9. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    What do you think- what is the best backup guitar for JEM (don't say another JEM) ;] When something goes wrong on stage which would be your second one ?? Strat maybe ?? And what about filling tonal hole in the band- I found that JEM mixes good with Gibson LP in rhythm backings. What are your...

    This thread might be a bit of a stretch, but there are enough members here, so maybe someone is interested in these things. I was curious if anyone is into, more "left-field" guitar music: looping, fretless guitars, microtonality, synthesis etc... If so, what do you do, what got you into it...
  11. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    has anyone tried this? any picture of fretless guitars, perferably jems. this idea really facinates me.
  12. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hey I just wanted to post some pics of a new project I started. It has a 1 3/8 inch mahogeny body with a 1/2 inch figured maple and purple heart top. I'm thinking two humbukers, chrome pup rings, a chrome OFR and wizard neck with maple veneer and chrome tuners. Chef21

    In my guitar class today we were watching the G3 video and when Vai started playing his tripple neck i fell in love with the fretless neck on it. I was talking to my teacher and he thinks i could make one. I'm going to get a cheap guitar and try it on that. I'm going to defret it and put a...

    I was watching the musician's channel the other day, and Jamie Humphries was talking about scales and theory, and mentioned something about Steve claiming he'd made up his own scale a few years back, called something like the 'Xiaver' scale? Has anyone else heard anything about this?
  15. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    hey guys, I'm posting this stuff up on a few different message boards (guitargearheads.com, sevenstring.org, etc.) and since it's so damn gear-heavy, I thought you all would be interested. These are all pics from my trip to NAMM over the weekend: Here's a couple shots of Mark Wood (TSO)...

    If you go to http://www.limpbizkit.com, go to the photos section. I'm starting to get cautiously optimistic about this new album. You'll see Wes playing a fretless guitar, a cello, a guitar with a cello bow, he's even got his synths set up in the pre-production shots. This could be really...
  17. Classifieds Archive
    This is one great guitar! I had it ordered out of curiousity, both for the company and the "fretlessism" that was completely new to me. I have tried to adapt to the fretless guitar for quite some time, most every day, and it's time for me to give in and admit that it's not for me. Therefore I...
