    Ok...sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, I'm not trying to be a troll or to start a flame war (though that could conceivably happen anyway, I will admit)...let's just get that out of the way from the start. I seriously want to know everybody's response to this. Here's the question...is...

    Just wanting to know, my uncle's old Fender something-or-other's tubes are close to dieing, so i want to change them for him (and to play on it for hours on end, obviously :) ) next time i go off to iran to visit. He likes the harmonic overtones during wide vibrato's, bends on 15th fret B...

    Since there are a lot of great guitars on here and I, too, really love JEMs - I was wondering if you guys had a chance to check out Bernie's stuff yet. I bought the very first Jekyll 627 27-fret from him. His guitars are amazing - they have that cross between the old Hamer Californians and the...

    I'm moving, so I'll be clearing out a lot of stuff.I will consider reasonable offers, and I will only ship to a US address.Paypal preferred. Digitech Turbo Flanger-35$ shipped Great Shape, missing rubber back since I put Velcro on it to attach to Pedal Board. DVD's Steve Vai-Visual Sound...

    I had someone ask me today what songs I played along with that helped my playing get better. I'm not talking about what tone you like or who you like to listen to. I'm talking about who did you sit and play to for hours & hours in the "woodshed" to develop your style. Tell who and why you...

    Ok so i know that most people here like the Jem, Js, and PGM signature guitars. So why doesn't anyone like any other signature models? Is it beacuse you think they look like [email protected]? Is it beacuse you don't like the artist that has their name on it? Have you actually played one and found that...

    I realise that it's all down to opinion, but I thought it would be interesting to see who fellow Jemsiters think is the best guitarist ever. My vote is for Steve Vai... ( I think he will be a popular choice:)) What do YOU think? Rock on!

    Who do you think is perhaps one of the most innovative guitar players to come around... Think about versatility... I KNOW that vai has his own sound but there are a lot more versatile players out there that are doing their own thing.. IMO vai has had his sound since his first album, and it...

    I'm selling off most of my CDs and figured I would try listing the guitar-heavy music on here. Here's the deal - shipping is only inside the continental US - flat rate of $1.50 for any single CD. If you want more than one (and I am really hoping to sell multiple discs to everyone), let me know...

    Hey guys...just wondering when everyone started playing guitar or music in general and for how long?? Also, who/what inspired you to pick up an instrument? I started playing when I was 12 and have been playing for close to 9 years now. I picked up the guitar because I discovered Metallica. I...

    For me it's Jason Becker. I really would like to know what amp, distortion pedal he uses on his demo tapes to Roth. Check out the songs from here. Guitar sounds like a buzzsaw with endless sustain. http://64.162.150.71/NeverHeardHotForTeacher.mp3 http://64.162.150.71/NeverHeardYankeeRose.mp3...

    I've only been playing since the first of the year. I've already bought, partly based on recommendations from members of this, and other, forums, an American made Strat, Gibson Les Paul, Fender Blues Jr, Ibanez Tube Screamer pedal, and a Gibson Dobro guitar. I can play, thus far, Hey Jude, Let...

    I divided the techniques into basic catagories, because else I wouldn't have enough space. With 'special effects' I'm referring to things like pick scraping, pressing the strings against the pole pieces etc. I find alternate picking quite challenging. Aswell as whammy. But you know, I find...

    Ever go to a Hard Rock Cafe and see stuff on the walls that doesn't make sense? For instance, I was in one yesteray and saw a low end Jackson guitar signed by Elton John. When did Elton John play a Jackson? I also saw a cheapo Washburn signed by Carlos Santana. Most of the things HRC displays...

    Sorry, but I did a search and learned about the better pedals, but I'm looking to see what they're for. I've got a Fender Blues Jr amp. 15 watt. My teacher has me plug into his little amp and it gives distortion. Can I get a pedal to plug into my amp and get distortion? How does it work...

    IbanezGirl, that would be a good poll! :o The only music DVD's I watch are of Joe Satriani and Steve Vai. So I'm not able to post a top 10. But of all the Satriani/Vai/G3 DVD's, my favourite would have to be 'Joe Satriani/Eric Johnson/Steve Vai in concert'. It's still the coolest DVD that has...

    Forgive me. This waiting for my JEM7VWH to ship from Rich is killing me so I feel compelled to start a meaningless thread to help pass the time until she arrives. So just for the heck of it, who's your 12 favorite guitarists? Lets say we all love Vai and Satriani so you can't include them. I'm...
