    Gamers - are you looking forward to PS5/Xbox x?

    I got the ps4 pro last year, so I kinda want to see how much better this thing is. Plus, the games they're making now might not take advantage of the new processing power. I dont really know if thats a thing but makes sense to me. But, with that being said, I still might pull the trigger on...

    Dunlop picks...

    Switched from Tortex to Ultex 5 years ago. They seem to last longer and they seem to have a smoother edge to them.

    Guitar store riffs

    I have to admit I do practice before going to a guitar shop. If I go in cold, I get lost and can't remember anything I've ever learned on guitar. Its like going to a record store, as soon as I walk in I forget every band I've ever heard. I dont understand the Stairway hate, its a good...

    If a guy's standing there, facing you...

    I'm certainly not going to let some guy who watched a YouTube video tell me the validatity of wearing a mask. I trust the Fauci.

    Winter NAMM 2021

    Maybe the so called Herd immunity will kick in by then or a vaccine. Kinda too early to tell

    What would you do if your brand new custom shop had a teeny, tiny, little scratch

    Unless your going to sell it. Keep the blemish. I never want a guitar that I don't want to take out of the case. I've done this myself. I sold a beautiful classical guitar because it was too nice. I played my cheap one all the time. Later in life, i bought another expensive classical and...

    I think my Les Paul is a dud

    I've had a few guitars that just never felt right. I got rid of them. If im not inspired or a guitar doesn't scratch that itch, than whats the use. Just collects dust.

    Guitar & Vocal training

    I know it comes naturally to some people. I think I'm somewhere in between. If its a busy guitar line I literally take it one bar at a time. This can take hours, days or even weeks but after I get thur a few bars I get into the flow. Obviously you have to know the guitar part and the vocal...

    If you were to buy a Taylor acoustic

    I have a Taylor GA-k. It was almost twice what I wanted to pay but soon as I picked it up I knew it was coming home with me. I played a bunch of acoustics at the time and i noticed that the CE's and the ones with the electronics changed the tone of the guitar, so for me, I don't like any of that...

    Who are your biggest musical influences?

    In order. Ace frehley Jimmy Page Randy Rhodes Jim Coche Kerry King / Jeff Hanneman I'd say that was my top 5 early influences. Even though I don't play or sound anything like those guys, they are in there somewhere.

    Looking for the thread that talked about supplements for fingers, hands, joints

    Yeah I'm 51 and I'm noticing stiffness and joint pain. I play video games too, which doesn't help. But I just use Ibuprofen and heat to get rid of the inflammation and go easy for a few days. My problem is this cant be good for the long haul.

    BREAKING NEWS: Kirk Hammett Loses to Mrs. Smith in Wah-Off

    Yeah, maybe, but to me you cant compare EVH to Kirk. Eddie's tone and phrasing are just too good. I think that's where I loose it with Kirt. Even old guys like Billy Gibbons or Iommi, they still have great tone and phrasing. They don't make that great of album's anymore but I still think...
