  1. The Guitar Rack
    Everyone may have their own reasons for wanting to play fast. Some want to do it for ego, some want to play their idols songs and others just want to incorparate the technique into their musical ideas. Why do I want to learn to play faster? I want to learn to play faster to be able to play the...

  3. The Guitar Rack
    Ever had "that one lick" or riff from a song that just made you want to stop and cry, or sit in total awe of something extraordinary? For me it's the octave riff in "Searching" by Joe Satriani. I don't know why, but I can listen to that song over and over just because of that one riff. He...

  6. Music Hall
    For the life of me I cannot play slide therefore I really don't listen to too many players. I cannot really make out who is exceptional and who is Mick Mars. Just was wondering what people who actually know a bit about good and bad slide players think of Eddie's limited work with the slide...

    You guys may have seen or heard about this awesome guitarist before, but I thought I'd post the link...his unbelievable phrasing/note choice on his tunes might be the best I've heard. Check him out! In the videos section, I specifically recommend the tune "Wolverine"...can't get that hook out...

    Just mucking about with this guitar trying to get a nice tone and also play the bloody thing. Hard to get used to an acoustic neck if you don't play them often enough. Pleased with the tone for a cheapo tho...what do you reckon to the sound? Edit...added the same file with eq added that...

  13. The Guitar Rack
    In response to Scott Parnell's post (practice your scales son lol) I thought I'd post a good thread. Who is your biggest influence on the guitar and why? For me -I am my biggest inspiration, playing comes from inside what you have, but other than that it's Michael Schenker.:jot:
  14. Lessons and Tab
    OK, this is the hardest section to pull of on eruption I'm so Fuc*kin mad cause i can't nail it!! It's the section after the trem picking where he does a series of wierd pull offs and stuff. The thing that pisses me off is the part where he hammers on to from the 5th fret on the D string to the...
  15. MP3s - Originals
    This is my first attempt at doing everything so please forgive the mistakes. I wrote the lyrics and rhythm a few years ago. After I recorded those, I added a little guitar accent and some back vocals and this is the result. I think it needs some lead guitar, especially in the break, but... I'm...

  18. MP3s - Originals
    I'm a BIG fan of this guy. I saw him in my home town and all my mate told me was that he was Ry Cooder's fave guitarist...quite an accolade for someone I'd never heard of. He ambled on with two acoustics, no stands (so he had to put them on the floor). He was wearing a wooly hat, a jumper and...
