I think you would benefit from adding more vibrato to the bends and some of the longer held notes, other than that your technique sounds pretty good.

Michael Romeo from Symphony X uses a lot of economy picking and I'd say its definitely worth learning/practicing it. That isn't to say you solely use either alternate or economy picking, but a...

A Mesa sound would definitely be nice, something like a Mark IV.
I'm in the UK (in the south) so my local is GAK.

No budget really but it'd be nice to keep it around 125

Orange Micro Terror with delay pedal.

Hey guys,

I recently bought an Orange Micro Terror and have discovered that putting a DD3 delay pedal in front of it when its overdriven sounds crap no matter what I do.

Yeah I agree it sounds very robotic and programmed. Vary the midi velocities a touch more and shift the midi notes slightly either way and it will sound a lot "better"

18i20 or Saffire Pro 40

Hi guys,

I'm wondering if there is any reason to choose the 18i20 over the Pro 40?

I'd much rather use the firewire port on my macbook to leave the USB ports free for anything else I may use.
