i have to admit i love vai and satriani as musicians, but as much as i love em', i hate their singing, slightly embarassing i think! Hope they will be none of it in the future. Sorry to any fans for this insult. Please share your views here

Yep, yesterday evening my Cornford Hellcat head and matching 2x12 were delivered to the house.
To cut a long story short, it's freakin' awesome. The vintage channel has the most beautiful cleans I have ever heard, which just very gently break up into that ballsy, classic british tone. The...
Yeah the title sums it all. I'm not just meaning Yngwie (whom I have always disliked) but also Steve, Satch, Gilbert, Petrucci and others that I can't think of right now.
I find that I'm not that eager to listen all of those lightning fast solos and fancy techniques. Don't get me wrong this is...
Today I dug out CAB by MacAlpine, Brunel, and Chambers and realized how much I like this type of music. However, I want something a bit smoother and more jazzier and not quite as shreddy. Can you make some recommendations?
I had to custom order the pink humbuckers I wanted for this RG, and I picked them up today. However, the color looks very washed out and faded. I got home and compared them to the DiMarzio single coil cover and the match is not even close.
Do they all look this way, or did I just get a bum set?
Who are some of your favorite metal bands? Any subgenre is fine, be it black, death, grindcore, doom, etc. List them all and give a reason why. I'll start with mine:
Necrophagist-My absolute favortie. Muhammed is an amazing player and their bassist is incredible!
Gojira-Good hard metal from...
Who's tone are you most trying to emulate?
I'd say I'm going for a cross between Andy Timmons and Brad Gillis. I've already found that the Vai tone doesn't work well with my style of playing. Petrucci's tone is just too elusive. Besides, I'm not sure it would work well for me. But I hear...
Right....since it's getting VERY CLOSE to the end of the year (already), I thought I'd start a thread where we can all share our aromatic experiences:)
This years been a bit gassy! Even though I was unemployed for nearly 4 months!
Okay.......in March, I saw a deal for a Korg D3200. Musicians...

Here are some pics of my recently completed Richie Kotzen Horror guitar replica. I thought it appropriate to post it on Halloween. Check it out:
The pics don't do it justice. It turned out really well. I'll probably put different knobs on it, but I had these pink ones laying around, so...
Hi guys, these are all VHS vids. They play great and include original cases. Most are long out of print. I lost the booklets in a move long ago, but all the exercises are done at slow speed. If you've been playing for more than 6 months, you can pick the notes up right from the screen.
Roite then, here's the situation. I've been working like a madman all summer to buy myself a new Cornford Hellcat. Now, the current situation. I have enough to buy the head itself (I've decided that tubes in the same enclosure as the speaker would probably be a bad idea, so I went against the...
I bought it used on saturday. It's an American Standard and it's rubbish. I don't know what I was thinking, I'm selling it now and getting a SZ4020.
It was like buying an old muscle car (car anology, yay!), you understand why someone would like to own one, but in the end I would never bother...
Yea, its finally here! Guthrie Govan - Erotic Cakes available at http://www.cornfordrecords.com clips available at http://www.myspace.com/cornfordrecords. This is going to be amazing, I've been waiting for this for literally years. What do you guys think?
