Just got this today, the neck is thinner than a wizard, it has the deepest cutaway I've ever played on, and the frets are huge. Dean made 12 of them, I dont know which of the 12 this is though, I don't understand the serial number and stuff.
I have always wanted a VWH and/or VSBL, and a EBJPM.
But, is it a deterrent? Can one be taken seriously if they play a signature series guitar?
The reason why it is such a tough debate for myself, is I have rarely ever found guitars that play with such ease as a JEM/JPM. The feel of the neck...
I'm after all the Jemfest Radio Interviews that they did a little while back. I had them all downloaded on my hard-drive but I had to wipe it and so I've lost most of them. The only one I managed to find backed-up was the Marty Friedman interview. So I've got that one.
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...
to everyone that already owns a Jem
Is it really worth it? $2200?
and if you compare it to a RG1570 which is like $700, is the Jem "three times" better?
One more question, Gibson LP standard or A Jem?
Thanks for your attention.
here i thought the second segment was quite amusing as he was acting like someone was holding a gun behind the camer.
"yer, dean there all my friends, hes a player, hes a genius!"
Hey guys, I bought these 2 instructional dvds a while back from www.chopsfromhell.com and these will really kick your playing in the a$$!!
These dvds are:
Rusty Cooley- Extreme Pentatonics
Rusty Cooley- The Art of Picking...
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...
I just found out. I played Jemfest a couple times, Rusty was there. He's not only a monster player, but a darn nice guy. I hope his goes well for him.
Okay..this is complicated but I'm looking for advice.
When I pick a lick from the low E string up to the high E string I have to shift between 2 hand positions:
1) Low E to D strings - Resting the side of my palm along the trem. Looks almost like the "Okay" hand symbol.
2) G to High E strings...
In another thread someone wanted to see some pics of this recent refinish, so here it is.
This is a 470 model. The 470's didn't have a recessed route for the cavity plates, so I put that in. I also plugged up the original jack hole and put in two angled jack holes. One is for the regular...
I know, I know, Satch, Vai, Malmsteen, Gilbert, blah blah blah blah blah, they all bring the same bag, sometimes cool tunes with mildly impressive licks... I'm not saying I can play them, but I am saying everytime I go to the guitar store there are at least a couple people that can. I wanna...
Line 6 users unite! Im looking for presets, and tired of using the line6 online version. The quality is so hit and miss on there! So this post is for you guys to post your presets your working on, tweaking, want opinions on etc.
The key reason for something like this is the need for...
Do you guys who use these drum pads play the drums or do you just play crappy on the trigger and then let the sequencer fix it up? I'm pulling my hair out trying to find the easiest method to record drum tracks. Rusty Cooley used an old DR-5 on some of his earlier tracks. He programmed it then...
I just flew home and had a brand new Caparison Horus waiting for me. It was the first time I had ever seen one in person, much less actually played one.
I liked it so much that I bought another one. I just haven't ever played a guitar that felt like this Caparison before.
The action was set a...
