I just went to his Sydney one tonight. The guy is an absolute champion, he's got such a cool vibe, adds in a bit of humour... not to mention his stellar chops. I wish I'd recorded the clinic because everything he said was gold. Here's some things I remember:

- the first couple of years of playing, he played with all upstrokes, and all on the E string, lmao.
- his priority was always co-ordination between the two hands, he never tried to "lock his [picking] arm up", ie, he used controlled picking just like the boys recommend in the technique thread.
- he used to think it was impossible to pick fast (how many of us have been there, or still are!)
- he did the "rabbit out of the guitar" trick on Intense Rock as a parody of guitar instructional material teaching all the "guitar tricks"
- he taught himself piano chord voicing, ie, how to play piano type chords on guitar

I can't talk of him highly enough, wow.

Guitar Techniques DVD and..*thinks* guitar clinic in Korea!!

Still...I wish I lived in Australia or America.

On a second thought, I wish that PG would come to Belgium!
Not only would it disrupt the fabric of time and space, but it would totally ruin the surprise!

Close voicings, shurely?


You've never heard of closed voicings where the lowest and highest notes of the voicing are no more than one octave apart?

Bleh, I've heard it referenced either way.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Nope, never heard of closed voicings, I assume he had made a small mistake somewhere, or that i'd not heard of closed voicings and was confusing them for close.

Seems that it's the latter. *shock* I'm not a pianist, my hands aren't that big, and besides, my multi-part theory comes from the classical side of the tracks.
#17
Sorry guys, my mistake, I didn't know the right term so I just called them "piano chord voicings". All he meant was transcribing piano songs onto guitar. He gave an example of a song and played it, can't remember what it was. Said he did the same for violin parts, etc, because he didn't want to be limited.

Hahaha, whereabouts where you sitting?

I was to the right side at the end of the isle. Next to where he walked down to get to the stage at the start. Infront of the guy who asked about the rabbit trick. I was wearing big red high top shoes and a Van Halen shirt.

I saw Petrucci at a free guitar clinic and met him.
I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer. The future's uncertain and the end is always near.

I think I might have been in your row, in the middle. Were you the kid with the guitar?? Looked like an RG or something.

Btw, that GH50L that's "on its way", did you buy that off ebay by any chance?

No no no, I haven't bought it yet. I will soon.

Um, I was with two guys who had RG's. One was a guy who looked like Dracula but with a Judas Priest shirt and a sparkly blue RG570 (real pretty guitar). The other guy I was with was a big guy who had a blue RG570 (maple fingerboard) and a bright green strap. I was too lazy to bring my 570.

Hmm... It was such a good night though. I loved that classical peice he played. You don't happen to know the name of it, do you?

Haha ok, I remember seeing you guys then, I was wondering what guitars they were. The reason I ask about the GH50 is because I saw a second hand one on Ebay go for $850, which I thought was an absolute steal.

The classical piece was something by Haydn. He used it in Scarified didn't he? I'd expect you'd be able to get info on it on google or something. just type llike Gilbert Haydn.

Hmm I didn't know because I haven't got the album. Should probably get it. From what I have heard, it is a damn good album.

Oh yeah, duddes

I understand that PG uses a GH50/100L on live shows...... a very higain amp...
Yet he uses two dirt boxes !! A Fulltone OCD and a Keeley Mod Ibanez TS9DX Flexi Tube Screamer.......

My question is..... on what occasion does he step on these boys ?? Just solos ?? Or as overall rhythm boosts ?? Or for pure distortion and leaving the GH clean ??

He uses it for over the top solos and rhythm parts, he prefers to leave the GH mid-gain so it cleans up really well when he rolls back his volume.
