    Here I am with yet another facile set of questions that are probably all too obvious to everyone except those in a persistent vegetative state. So here goes... please feel free to tell me to piss off and use Google at any stage, but Google doesn't seem to answer my specific question at the...

    Hey guys, long time reader here just registered.:D I keep practicing some exercises but I can't get very fast.:sad: Are there any tricks I must know to increase my speed? I am not a fast player but I'd like to get my sweep picking to a decent level I have many problems specially with 5/6...

    Hello everyone, It seems like two decades after the dawn of shred, people are still obsessed with playing fast. I don't care much about speed, but I can play relatively fast, nevertheless. I was wondering if some of you would be interested in a tutorial or something similar where I would share...

    Hey everyone, I´m new to this forum and this is my very first post. Maybe my below questions have been answered already somewhere in the forum but when I did a search I couldn´t find the answers I´m looking for. I have a what I think a very specific question about alternate picking. I´ll...

    Here's a video of me playing an Ibanez RG470. Best Dynamo Metal Guitar Riff Ever! It is an older video and has a few mistakes, however, wanted to present this playing style. In the tradition of Fear Factory machine gun-style riffs, though, what I think is a unique way of playing them with my...

    I'm not entirely sure if this is useful, but it'll be here if you guys would need it. For example, a sextuplet lick in 120 is actually the same speed as a 4 note per beat lick in 180bpm. How did I come up with that? Here's how: 1.) Determine your reference tempo and note grouping which you'd...

    I know this sounds like the stupidest question one could possibly ask, I'm talking about how you come into contact with the string and what you do with it, and how you switch from string to string. The first option is to move the tip of the pick from point A to point B, with the string being...

    Because having a forum that discusses a shred guitar company (more or less) is like having a bowling forum not having a poll asking for your average scores. For some reason I've apparently been really hustling it recently, as right now I can comfortably alternate pick at roughly 120 bpm (all...

    Poor old Batio. Found this on Youtube today. It gets real ugly at about 1:08.

    i dont dislike low action but i play much better with high action. for some odd reason even though i can alternate pick really fast and acurate i need. high action because i fret way to fast a low action. i dont feal the strings. so i dont play with enough fidelity and even end up fretting 5...

    I've been reading a lot on the internet about the supposed pros and cons of 5400 rpm HDs vs. 7200 rpm HDs. Apparently, this is a debate that has been going on for years? :) But I've read through a bunch of stuff and here's what I gathered: - The increase in production of heat and consumption of...

    Hey all, My friend is looking for black Epiphone speed knobs to fit his Les Paul 100. It currently has gold speed knobs, but he wants to replace them with black ones. So I was wondering, will Black Gibson Speed Knobs fit on an Epi Les Paul 100, or will they need to be made specifically for...
