    Syn's Etudes Backing Track mp3s

    Hello fellow Synners, I've had several students ask how I get the backing tracks downloaded so I can put them into my videos without having to record simply with my phones mic and avoid background noise. I use my marshall code 100 amp and plug my phone into the guitar input with an aux chord...

    Floyd rose pitch range

    Hi, For those with a floating bridge...how many half steps can you raise the pitch before the string hits a fret and buzzes/mutes? For example my G-string (lol) can go 6 half steps (G to C#) but right before it gets to D it hits the frets and becomes a harmonic and then dies out. I'm not sure...

    Dragging Pinky on picking hand. Thoughts?

    I'm in a beginner guitar class at college (it's a joke I know haha). Anyways the TA sent me this in response to my video of that weeks assignment. I'm tempted to send him a video of Syn playing and ask him to explain why Syn is being "slowed down." EDIT: I don't actually anchor my pinkie...it...

    Hand size and guitar (what's yours?)

    Synyster Custom S pin stripe vs Satin Burst

    I recently got the gold satin burst guitar after having the black and gold custom S for 6 months and wanted to share my thoughts on the two of them. The main reason I got another one was so I could keep one in E standard and one in drop D tuning. That way I can use my gold pinstripe one to play...

    Question for Syn

    If you see this: What is the sound effect you use in “Angels” during the chorus. In live videos I see you use a pedal to make that mysterious wailing noise and I’ve always wondered how to do it. Also, any advice on keeping your pinkie under control when sweep picking? In all of your etudes your...

    A7x tab book accuracy

    Anybody know if the tab books are 100% accurate? The stage seems to be quite accurate but the afterlife tab has the most inefficiently transcribed solo with large jumps in the sweeping parts and double picked notes randomly. Does anybody know if they are correct or not? I know the tab book and...
