I turned the volume off. All of a sudden this video was far more impressive than it was before.
Sorry, I don't see guitar playing as a sport.If you can't respect Zakk's talent, I'm not sure who out there is "good enough"?
Lol if I had only thought at the time to make a video of it to post up..*paging Dr.ChrisMetal86*
*Dr.ChrisMetal86, please report to the ZW signature amp thread*
You have a video comparing EMG across scale length and bridge types?Lol if I had only thought at the time to make a video of it to post up..
Now I'm sure a longer scale length with floppy strings would probably make it sound the same, but with flub to it.. :lol
Absolutely on the money - I conpletely agree.I was a huge fan of his and to me his best work was during the Pride and Glory days. Good songs, a bit over the top on the leads, but they had some melody to them for the most part. But his voice was fantastic in my opinion and I thought that genre of heavy modern southern influenced rock was really going to be something that he could do for a long time. Then BLS came along and as much as it pains me to admit it because I think that he's just a fun guy who loves to play loud....it's not listenable. And I tried.
Yeah, what pisses me off is that in the process we ended up missing out on what could have been a lot of great songs.Absolutely on the money - I conpletely agree.
On paper, every A&R guy should have wet themselves over Pride & Glory. Well established guitar shredder, great looking kid, killer voice, good songs in the vein of great US radio friendly rock like Skynard. (Keith Urban anyone??)
I totally would have seen the building up a great following & selling truckloads of records, but he totally blew it. I can't stand BLS either, yet I still consider myself a Zakk fan :cry
As far as tone goes, I believe his active EMG pickups will contribute to the tone
