    Improv jam

    This is one of the recent jams my band and I had. I'm about to sit down and work on making this one into a song. It was all improved on the spot, so there are a few hiccups and a sour bend or two. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks 🤘💀 <iframe width="100%" height="300" scrolling="no"...

    What is your favorite song from The Stage album?

    Man, I want to listen to Exist more but that monologue started to feel like a damned lecture every playthrough. Is there a version anywhere without it? The Stage is still my favorite track off of the album. The intro and that main guitar riff is just too good.

    Floyd rose pitch range

    Ah, I gotcha. Lol. Three full steps sound like a pretty good pitch shift. I guess you should be able to whammy until the string or neck breaks 💀 I don't think I go much more that 2 steps since I had a string pop out of the saddle and I'm gun shy now.

    Floyd rose pitch range

    You should be able to play up to the 22-24 fret. You can check your height and tension on your FR and make minor adjustments as needed. Double check that the FR base is parallel to the guitar body from a lengthwise perspective. If you've changed string gauge then the tension will need to be...

    Question about picking hand

    It's might affect the brightness of notes if they're the ones your playing, but if not I wouldn't worry too much. My picking hand makes quite a bit of contact with the strings and guitar while I play. I'm not sure if it's a hinderance. Is there a way you feel it's affecting your playing?

    Question about picking hand

    I'm sort of confused at the issue. Your thumb drags the string as you pick? Like if you were doing a pinch harmonic? Or are you worried about anchoring your picking hand against the guitar?

    New Synyster Gates Guitar manufacture trouble

    Man, that might bother me, if I couldn't level the pickup mount. Its just really noticeable over the pin stripes. Being as it's such a nice guitar to look at and a mid range price, I'd probably have it exchanged or just make sure they paid a discount for it having a couple of cosmetic defects.

    Users Experience and Opinions About Audio Interfaces

    I really liked tracktion 7. It's came free with a Mackie mixing board we used. I upgraded to waveform 10, which is the paid version and love it. I felt so lost trying to figure Pro Tools out. Love that tracktion and waveform actually have tooltips to help beginners figure this stuff out. I feel...

    Synyster Gates bridge pickup

    Definitely listen to Ids on this. The pickup is one part of the tone. The important part of it being that his signature pickups or the invader sh-8s are "high output, passive pickups." It's a first step to get that tone. Opposed to throwing active EMGs on your guitar and hoping to emulate his...

    Synyster Gates bridge pickup

    Sorry man. The SH-8 sounds great. I bet that Tb-8 is the same pickup as the sh-8 with a different color scheme.

    Synyster Gates bridge pickup

    Any humbucker type pickup will fit the bridge spot. Your best bet to find gold ones would probably be ebay or reverb nation. Imo the black ones would look fine. I've had to mismatch pickups like that too. Pretty sure he used the sh-8s. That pickup sounds great either way.
