The Official "Who to Listen to" List

View Full Version : The Official "Who to Listen to" List

Seeing that the who to listen to list in the Musician Talk forum was quite successful, here's the list of who to listen to for the GG&A forum. Very much like the list over in the Musician Talk, this list is to pick out users who are particularly knowledgeable (ie. the ones to listen to).

So the list below, consists of members of this forum, who have been consistently helpful, given honest, insightful and more importantly accurate information, and therefore, have earned a spot on this list. In other words, listen to these people;

1. Casualty01
2. SV300
3. power freak
4. Bill43
5. Dgonz
6. PJD
7. StreamLine
8. Jacob M
9. *Def*
10. Jaeger
11. scheck006
12. Backup Guitar
13. Cmogi10
14. Asomodai
15. TGM
16. mig28
17. jono034
18. jag513
19. D Man
20. Mascot
21. mnbaseball91
22. HopePoisoned
23. Genocide dude
24. Dave_Mc
25. Seljer
26. jj1565
27. *Position Open*
28. *Position Open*
etc.

Just like the MT list, the list is NOT closed, and any members who are seen to post regularly with accurate information, and are willing to help out, will be added.

The following paragraph is copied straight from the MT thread - couldnt have put it better myself;

Please keep in mind, the above list of people does NOT mean they are the only people you should take seriously or listen to when they post. it is simply a list of people, given to you to maybe help any confusion you might have as to what might be correct or what might be wrong information..... it's a list of members who are consistently VERY helpful, knowledgeable and thorough in the areas covered by this forum. simple as that.

Just like the MT lists, unfortunately, we DO have to include a small list of people who you generally SHOULDN'T listen to, in order to avoid bad advice, arrogance, and or overall ignorance as to what they're actually saying. Here goes the list of people to ignore at all costs

Like the MT list, this list WILL be added to.
1. §ound_Of_§hade
2. Feelthevayne
3. simonparry
4. sonicyouthsaves
5. destructones
6. awsoem
7. Magnus_j
8. JaYB06
9. RememberMyName
10. *awaiting a new retard*


(Seeing as Sir §ound_Of_§hade has posted a hunk of bad/wrong advice here quite a while ago, it was only fair to include him on the GG&A list as well as the MT list :D)

Ok, seeing as how the previous posts have been cleared, i think i might make a few new recommendations for the who to listen to list (all these are IMO, of course, and i may have missed the odd howler that you've seen them post, so if you want to argue, correct me or whatever, feel free! :D ):

seljer: he seems to go out of his way to help people- especially in the threads which need complicated, long answers- i normally think "well, i'll answer it if no-one else does" since i'm lazy, and, 9 times out of 10, seljer is the person that i can just post " i agree" to, instead of having to come up with my own arguments! :cheers:

zavorash: seems to know a lot about valve amps and amps in general etc., and is pretty helpful any time i see him post!

electrik: ditto zavorash

united kid: i'm a little reluctant to recommend him, since he is quite biased a lot of the time, and sometimes confuses "advice" with "what i would do even if i play different stuff", but he still seems to know more than most people around here (bar those on the list!), so i recommend him, since he always tries to help.

Toxicity? i just assumed he'd be up there... he should go up too, even though he normally posts in the electric guitar forum...

I hope there's no-one i've forgotten, that's all i can think of now...

mnbaseball91
09-03-2005, 11:37 AM
Tox should be on there without a doubt. There are people on there who post here far less often than he does. I also agree that Seljer tends to be quite helpful. I know I've seen a lot of untied kid's posts but I'm blanking on what kind of stuff he says, so I won't vote either way with him. I'm not overly familiar with zavorash or electrik.

Yeah Seljer seems quite helpful, I don't think I've seen him post something that is completely wrong, in fact most of the time he is spot on.

I haven't seen Eletrik or Zavorash too much, I'll check them out in a minute.

U-K came up last time, I said he should be on there and I still agree. IMO he isn't any different to some of the other people on the list.

Toxicity seems to know his stuff too.



But Dave isn't on the list? :confused: Maybe I'm being retarded and not looking properly but I don't see him.

I think I'll add Dave, Seljer and Toxic unless anybody has any objections?

i agree you seem to know your stuff about seymour duncan pickups :cheers: i think it was that howler about valve amps needing to be called dual rectos to have distortion or something that got you nominated before, but most of the time your posts seem fine... also you sometimes post sarcastic stuff and it's hard to tell if you're being serious or not :D

and cheers for the nomination, pf :cheers:

uh..what!? How is Dave not on the list? I could have sworn he was. PF, I think something needs to be done about that!

And Funky, don't worry, you've shaped up since then. BTW, is that you over on the Seymour Duncan forums occasionally? Same name, different avatar.

09-07-2005, 08:00 PM
To be honest, I haven't seen. . .


Cas, Bill, Dgonz, Streamline, Jacob, Cmogi, or mig post in quite a while.

mnbaseball91
09-07-2005, 08:41 PM
^Yeah, but Cas is on the mod list, whereas the others are on the "who to listen to" list. I was always a little confused about names not being taken off the list, but then SV300 showed up after almost a year of being gone. You never know...

Mascot
09-07-2005, 08:57 PM
Yeah.

I was suprised to see SV come back.

Things is, Cas may be a mod, but for all I know, he could know absolutely nothing about gear. ( I'm sure this isn't true, I'm just saying. )

Zavorash
09-26-2005, 04:39 PM
i tend to not really listen to anyone here...except the obvious people to listen to (tox, maybe mascot, maybe unitedkid, etc. etc.)

I more or less agree with you here. While there are certain members that tend to give helpful advice on a consistent basis, tone is a very opinionated subject. This list seems to elevate some to a level of "always right" or "always wrong". The truth is, the only concrete facts lie in the construction of the gear; the sound produced is totally subjective. Even the members on the "who to listen to" list are prone to recommend a product that sounds awful to another listener.

Dave_Mc
09-27-2005, 04:39 AM
^exactly

although i normally find when i try an amp that recognised "tone hounds" say is good, it's normally good- pf recommended kochs, and they were certainly very nice when i tried them...

^ maybe tryhardslash for the who not to listen to, he seems to be posting alot of wrong information (check my sig). JJ1656(??) posts helpfully, so she deserves a spot.

seconded on both counts (at least if tryhardslash posts any more stupid replies)

jj normally posts in electric guitar mascot, but i think she should be on the list, because when she does post in here, you know it's going to be accurate...

but seriously, ~hypermonkey~ should be there...

oh, and calum...



:cheers:

electrik
10-01-2005, 06:55 PM
well, id second hypermonkey in an instant if it was in the customization forum, but he doesnt come to G&A that much, and i havent seen calum around here much lately either,

10-01-2005, 09:48 PM
I'll nominate willrock4life for the idiot list due to the comment found in my sig.

10-02-2005, 04:41 AM
well, id second hypermonkey in an instant if it was in the customization forum, but he doesnt come to G&S that much, and i havent seen calum around here much lately either,

seconded

if we're starting a new round of recommendations, i still think electrik, zavorash and joyful womble should be on there. gpderek or whatever his full name is, he's normally very helpful too, and maybe even nic_2_090 (if that's his right name)

i don't see any of these guys doing any different to most of us on the list, they're always very helpful and post solid advice most if not all the time

and xifr, if willrock4life posts another howler like that, i'll second him, but i think we should give him another chance, since we gave tryhardslash about 20 chances...

EDIT: i just realised xifr isn't on the list, he should be!

EDIT: i've got a new nomination for the Retard List- check my sig. I think he's posted crap before, but if he posts anything else stupid, i think he should be nominated too (as i said, we gave tryhardslash several chances)

Dave_Mc
10-02-2005, 05:05 AM
Sorry for the double post, but it crashes when you try to edit anything of any length now :(

i have a new recommendation for the retard list- ooba_farz- check my sig. I think he's posted crap before, but i'm not certain. Anyway, if he posts anything stupid again, i nominate him (since we gave tryhardslash so many chances)

xifr
10-02-2005, 07:41 AM
EDIT: i just realised xifr isn't on the list, he should be!

EDIT: despite his insightful recommendation of asking me for advice ( ;) ), i second blink too- i think he's been posting other crap too, afaik

OK kids, todays nominee:

ok, if you want to out do drummers then the best thing to go with is a marshall as they are normally louder than you think (a marhsall 100 watt is alot louder than a fender 100 watt, no matter if they're solid state hybrid or valve powered). 30 watts may be enough but if this is your second amp you should really save up and get something louder that will last you until you do quite big gigs

Can you guess which list I'm nominating him for?

Now that's an idea!

Let's just say my DSL has none of the original signal components, different speaker and modified voltage levels. Not your typical DSL anymore. ;) I got the DSL in the sale, I didn't really have much option. £300 brand new and they bought my old amp (some laney hybrid thing) for almost as much as I bought it for. So a tube amp for around £100? I think so!

I may be getting a vintage gibbo amp soon though, I can't give it a real test until this weekend though (hope it isn't sold!) I loved the last one I tried but didn't have the cash, now I've got enough. :cool: Again not your typical Holdsworth amp. ;) If that doesn't work out I'll hopefully find an old silverface to get "Fuch'd."

On the subject of Allan, you can't really say an amp is a "Holdsworth" amp. He's played Marshall JCM900s (which I hate with firey passion) Plexis, Vox AC30s, Mesa Marks, Mesa Rectifiers, Mesa .50 Caliber, Hartley Thomsons, THD, Pearce, Yamaha etc. etc. Yet he's still Allan and still sounds somewhat similar. (The Yamaha digital amp still shocks me the most!)

What ever happenned to SV? He was my favorite mod of this forum, sorry dave/PF. I know he came back to Aus (with a neverending cheap supply of strings :mad: ). And he could set up a floyd in under 8 minutes. :)

Speaking of that, I wouldn't mind seeing more of jono, mig, Bill, PJD, nirvanaozzie, and Def. Oh well, times change and people come and go. It's wierd how the forums go through cycles like that. And they always seem to have a common topic that's obvious in everythread in hindsight.

I haven't been around too much lately, and if I have alot of it's been spam, like this post. :(

Not to be a punk but I don't see most of the people listed on the site that much.

Yea, but when they do it's worth it. And some people like Cas or Bill are worth having on there just because. :)
