  1. The Guitar Rack
    I play a lot of Hair Metal and Hard Rock (Skid Row, Ratt, Winger, GNR, Van Halen, etc...) I love Scotti Hill and Snakes tone of Skid Row, and their amazing squeals and pinch harmonics they roll off every 5 seconds. My question is, does any any know what pickups they used, or a pickup that can...
  2. MP3s - Originals
    Just an idea at this point. A Sabbathey-groove that eventually turns into a Robin Trower-esque outro. Just the mood of the day I suppose. Anyways, have a listen if you'd like. Comments on making the song better are appreciated. Someone mentioned that there was a Nirvana song called...
  3. The Guitar Rack
    Ok, I play alot of Pantera tunes, and I've been messing around with string and pickup height, along with saddle position, but I'm pretty stumped. I can't suss out how Darrell gets all those wild harmonics like the on at the 2.25 fret and such. So I guess I'm asking for advice on how to set my...
  4. The Guitar Rack
    I heard this wild song on the radio the other day a few times, very rarely is it every played but i dont listen to the radio to often. Dont remember much of the lryics. But it starts off with a heavy chunky weird guitar noises with the whammy bar, and then its god a real solid heavy distortion...

  6. Music Hall
    So my band's got a gig in a couple weeks so we're working out our setlist to be about 10-15 songs. Here's what we got so far, to be played in this order. I unfortunately couldn't pick every song obviously because we all have slightly different tastes in music, but I think my guitarwork gives our...

    Hi, Great site all. I've just bought a Zakk Epiphone Bullseye & hoping you can help. I've just managed to get the hang of pinch harmoncs, i'm only a beginner :smile: They sound really cool when i have the pickup switch in the down position (lead pickup i think) but i put the switch in the...
  8. Amps and Amp Modeling
    I've been playing for a few years and have gotten fairly comfortable with the sound I like to hear from my guitar. I've gone to shops and played through a fair variety of high gain and high to low power heads and combos. I've played a variety of guitars, but I haven't spent a lot of time with...
  9. Amps and Amp Modeling
    I am looking at buying a new amp. I will have about $800 to spend, will spend more if there is something noticeably better for a little more. I have a Ibanez RG2550 prestige and love to do pinch harmonics. I am wondering if a tube amp will be better or worse then a SS for them, while still...
  10. The Guitar Rack
    Hello everyone. My question might be weird, but I am still new to the guitar thing. I have a Ibanez RG2550 prestige and a Crate flexwave 65 amp. I am looking to get a real clean distortion sound. I know my amp is not that great, it is not a tube and I know you should start with a good amp...
  11. Amps and Amp Modeling
    Hello people. Well I just started playing a week ago and I am hooked. I picked up a squier start for my first. It came with a sp10 amp. I would like to upgrade but don't know anything about them. I am mostly into rock but do like metal as well. Since I am still new I really dont want to blow a...

  13. The Guitar Rack
    Hey everyone. This is my first post on this forum. I've been looking for a good guitar forum for a long time, but the ones I find hardly have any new posts on a daily basis until this one. Trying to get a feel for the crowd... What style(s)/type of music do you play? I'm pretty much a...
  14. Music Hall
    I've recently gotten into the old school Death Metal bands of the mid 80's. Bands like Death, Morbid Angel, and the predecessors of the genre...Possessed! These bands have definitely reshaped my perspective on the genre. But my question is, how did the punk/thrash sound, shockable lyrics and...
  15. The Guitar Rack
    well...anything odd you do with your guitar? for example, like Vai, do you stuff your spring cavity with tissue papers? like Van Halen, do you boil your strings? if you have a floyd rose, do you leave your nuts locked, and cut the excess string from the head stock, or unlocked and keep changing...
  16. The Guitar Rack
    Hi, I'm new to this forum, I'm considering a Peavey Vortex EX, I played it unplugged the other day in the music store and I thought it played nicely and felt good; I was in a rush and didn't have time to wait for the guy to return with a cord to hear it though. Anyway, I might get it tonight...

  18. The Guitar Rack
    For long time, after seeing many strange guitars(metal, see-thru, etc.), I was wondering if the material used for the body of an electric solidbody guitar really affects tone? Thanks guys.
  19. MP3 Covers (Heavy Rock/Metal)
    This is my first cover for 2007. Going back to 1973 Houses of the Holy for this one. This is my take on The Ocean. Added a heavier tone. (the original had almost no distortion). The vocals were already on the bt. (prob from GuitarOne). Not note for note, but pretty close. All rhythms and leads...
  20. The Guitar Rack
    Who is your top 3 favorite guitarists and why? Mine are: 1 Malmsteen, for his great technique and innovation (bringing classical to the main stream at certain points and maintaining it on a smaller scale for over 20 years) Plus I just love classical....I was playing that style before he was...
