What do you mean with divebombs? My understanding of divebombs is picking a harmonic and just diving (like in the end of "Fight Fire with Fire"). You don't need the Floyd to go up to be able to do...

Why don't you just replace the A string with a D string and tune it down?

So the strings you would use would be (in standard tuning) E, D, D, G, B, E. That way you wouldn't need to worry about...

Most songs don't sound good with the guitar part only. If they did, why would the songs need other instruments? That's the way it is. You can't (most of the time) sound as good alone as when you are...

What about Roland Cube?

And yeah, look at the used market.


If you are going to use distortion pedals, I see no reason for buying a modeling amp.

Yes. That's how mine is set up. But you can't really go crazy with it. As I said, you can do like half or whole step bends and that's it.

I have the same guitar. It lacks the routing behind the bridge. There's simply just no space for the Floyd to be able to do pulls - the bridge hits the body. The newer MIM ones have a recessed Floyd,...

Chord tones always work. But if you spend a lot of time on a non-chord tone, it will sound dissonant. Non-chord tones are good, but you should emphasize chord tones (or do whatever you want, there's...

I have never seen a C2 chord anywhere. It's commonly known as Cadd9. I think that's because you add the notes on top of the triad, just like you add extensions on top of 7th chords.

But whatever,...

B dim is pretty much the same as G7 (G B D F), but not Gm7. You could see it as a rootless G7 chord.

There's one more option - getting a second amp for cleans and using an ABY pedal to switch between the two amps.

My point was that it has a context. Not a historical context. I mean, rhythm, melody. It is a whole piece - the context is the song. Playing a single chord is playing a chord out of context (I mean,...

^ Scales don't even give you ideas. A scale is not going to give you a certain sound - it's about the way you use the notes. And you learn to use the notes by listening to how other players use them.
