id be moderately proud but league? smh get back to rts and stay #elite
I was really big into them, but it just got to be too much. I hit Diamond in SC and had to stop, it was literally all I did and it was starting to fade ever so slightly, so I called it quits. League was a good change of pace, it's more social and isn't a terrible community after you get to the higher ELO's.
There's not many competitive RTS's I can get into currently anyways
Pretty much already been said above. More space from you and your amp/mic is better, depending on whether your using a condenser or something like a karaoke mic. Mess around and try to find a sweet spot with the mic and the amp.
That's quite a lot of hate. I hate the tones that Korn gets out of their Ibanez guitars and they both (as far as I know) use Dimarzio pickups. So that means Dimarzios are bad? No. Also to add, Whitechapel's tones are quite horrifying IMHO and they use Dimarzios too. I used EMGs for a long time and here's a recording of them: https://soundcloud.com/officialdarkenedsky/sorrow-you-love-and-hate MAybe has a terrible bass response and maybe I use a lo-fi shitty metal tone, but I can't hear it. I liked the sound I got with those. Good sounding pickups are only good in the ear of the beholder.
However, TS, I wouldn't go for these pickups and I feel that you shouldn't either.
Fair enough. I just mean that EMG's might work well if you're doing straight metal, but DiMarzio's passives are excellent because I think they have a lot more clarity and feel more personal. Just my opinion.
But yeah, let's not talk about Whitechapel's guitar tone. Eugh.
Where does this idea come from? Never heard of anyone doing so and I don't understand the benefits/cons?
It's a pretty standard physics-of-sound idea, honestly. The high frequencies are more "fragile" and will get more caught in the paper and won't travel as powerfully, thus reducing the highs and giving a more mid range/bassy tone.
The benefits are just that. A very bassy tone (or simply one without a ton of highs [that guitarists seem to love for god knows why]) is prominent among a lot of genres, i.e modern jazz/fusion/prog rock/ambient artists.
12-60's would be good. I'm not sure what the build quality on the Ibanez is, so I'd be extra cautious and make sure that you don't horribly warp the neck or anything by setting it up for such a chunky gauge incorrectly.
If you're in the US check out GFS pickups. They're cheap, and fairly okay.
Seconded for not being worth it. I think that EMG's generally sound like shit as is, they have a terrible bass response and are pretty much only good for really lo-fi shitty metal tones. Invest in a DiMarzio or something if you really want a good sounding pickup.
Anyway, I think you really did well. I would work on using a couple relative keys (not necessarily always "proper") to "spice" up your style, maybe a few techniques not normal to your style. Your playing and tone are both pretty good. Well done!
America as a whole probably has never considered Australian schools in any way shape or form. It's not like the way we have this perception of English boarding schools here, most people just haven't ever thought of how it might be different down under.
As for Australia as a whole... well, Steve Irwin was a great guy, but that's pretty much what the bulk of America knows about Australia.
I always picture your avatar saying everything you post. So that last part was quite fitting.
I read about half the thread, and I'm just going to make my opinion known, and not stay here and debate.
I think if someone takes up the option of welfare, then they should be tested. But in addition to using it for food/shelter/basic necessities, I think there should be some sort of program for people who while on welfare had a drug problem, to get help. If someone wants to use their welfare for drugs though, let them do it. They just shouldn't receive any more than the next guy who isn't blowing it.
We were just friends at the time, we went bowling, played some videogames, kayaked out to an little island, and just enjoyed being with each other. T'was also the night we fell in love, which eventually leads up to us having a relationship, but still, that day was the most incredible one in my life.
Besides that one, I'd say spending a week at a hotel for a jazz band competition as a freshman was pretty awesome too.
Basically what the title says. Personally, these last few months haven't been my most active, and I just don't login that much nowadays. Not that I can never find some lulz, but with adbots, lack of some older familiar faces, ect.
So I have a good friend who I have fallen head-over-heels for. She's everything I could ever want. Recently, she's been flirting with me a bit, but not so much that it's blatantly obvious. So since homecoming is coming up, she was telling me about how her friend got asked, and how she isn't going because she has nobody to go with. So I asked her, just saying I would go with her if she wanted to go, and though she hasn't replied yet, I feel like I did something wrong. I really don't want to screw up our friendship, but I really want to tell her how I feel to find out if she feels similar..
Did I do something wrong? How can I tell her how I feel without chancing us not being friends?
