I hate it when people justify bad sound with low price. You have to pay for good sound of course. I wouldn't settle for a bad amp just because it's cheap. If I'm not satisfied with the tone, it...

I agree with Hail that instrument roles are kind of limited. But at the same time if you are going to learn to play the bass, you pretty much have to play songs that use the bass the basic way -...

Page played really well live in the early 70s. But in the mid-late 70s his drug use started affecting his playing. Some of his live solos are pretty painful to listen to.

I'm also sure Page didn't...

That's why most bands don't stand still when they perform live. Regular people are more interested in a good show than hearing you playing your songs perfectly. If you don't show that you mess up,...

You could call some of Jimmy Page's solos "shredding" (especially the "Heartbreaker" solo). I mean, we haven't even really defined shredding. Jimmy is definitely not a shredder but some of his solos...

Well, IMO that just sounded noisy (maybe part of it was his tone). Not the best example of "tasteful" fast playing IMO.

Yeah. That's one of the best examples of technical wanking that I have heard. The solo is just sweep arpeggios played as fast as possible, the middle section has a really complex rhythm that makes no...

I don't agree. Because good technique means good sound. Technique isn't all about how fast you can play. All good guitarists (that you hear on the records) have a good technique. It would be stupid...

That backing track sounds good but I would start with something simpler than that. Maybe start with simple 12 bar blues or a basic 4 chord progression like C-G-Am-F. I find it easier to solo over a...

This is true but I would say playing out of key is more of a negative term. As somebody said, usually it refers to a bad note choice and not listening to the other instruments at all. But playing out...

Yes, it's technically the same as major scale with a flat third but I would rather call it minor scale with raised 6th and 7th (because it is a minor, not a major scale). It is used to avoid the...
