    my rhythm sucks what can i do

    Record yourself and listen to yourself play, then try to refine your technique. You will be surprised what you notice about your playing when you aren't actually playing.

    Synyster Gates School CAGED System – The G Shape – Lesson 26

    Syn's tips for this lesson are to use ornamentation/embellishing in order to make your chords and soloing more interesting.

    What is your opinion on "The Stage" album in its entirety?

    I liked The Stage a lot when it came out, but over time it grew on me even more. Initially The Stage, Roman Sky, Fermi Paradox and Exist were the standout songs to me.

    Electrical/Wiring help if anyone needs

    The sustainiac is pretty sophisticated, it has it's own circuit board. Basically a small calculator runs that thing lol. I haven't had the guts to pull the trigger on it quite yet. But I'm pretty sure if I make sure that the sustainiac always has power when the guitar jack is plugged in, it will...

    Buzz on Acoustic after dropping down a half step

    If you tune down a half step, there is less tension on the strings. Therefore they do not pull the neck away(away from you when holding the guitar) as much as they normally do. There is something inside the guitar neck called a truss rod. It opposes the tension created by the strings, in other...

    EDDIE VAN HALEN TRIBUTE CONTEST ANNOUNCED!

    Oh no! Yeah I see that now. This is so disappointing, I pulled an all nighter trying to get this to work. Youtube seems to have a copyright claim on it and blocked it... Maybe I can post on instagram instead.... I'm going to try and figure this out. I know it might be too late for the tribute...
