Today is the day guys. I r exciteded.
Can somebody tell me what vocal technique is used by Michael Armine from Rosetta? I think it's something between yelling and screaming. Also, what tips do you have for developing that type of vocals?
out of us two only you were the one to bitch about me. just so you're being all arrogant, im not even gonna try elaborating what im doing with them and how.
If you think a solo artist cant exist then you're simply wrong
if you think that i target small companies to only use them you're still wrong cause i only meant that big people go dealing with big companies. i didnt think i was going to get endorsement with Fulltone or MXR or EHX or something.
and by any means how do you know if i earned my endorsement or no? you're just acting.. i dont know.. just inappropriate
so yeah give me young brand names, i want some more endorsement
mp.... but i send people like you as far as i can... you know the rest
now shuttup or i'm gonna report you, im fed up with you and your stupid mind already. do and think that whatever you say is right/// just piss of mate///
you're acting like some sort of... WonderBoy that's gonna save all the people out there from my evil exploitation ... i say go get yourself a life first of all and then talk fromthe name of people who work and enjoying working with me. it's not you to tell if they're happy or no...
Look buddy, just because you're misinformed doesn't mean you can go offending people around.
Is that ms paint?? i doubt so and even if it is then by all the ****ing means the dude who could do it on paint would pwn the world
How bout this? Paint again??
now if you're not into my production quality then by any means go seek a better sound, I myself dont like the heavily filtered recordings floating nowadays and I go the more of a unprocessed sound. that's my opinion!
And do not ****ing try to talk to me like that, if it makes you sick go vomit on your chest and stop assuming I am robbing boutique builders and all. You either have some serious problems in your life currently either IDK what to call it
also I'm sorry to everybody else for quite the rant here, however I do require a bit of respect towards my art and everybody else's art and what other try to do, unless they are only there bitching on what you are actually doing.
Well excuse me good sir, I know when having a discussion people get on some minor irrelevant mistakes to prove their statements correct so I should have been more careful about my capitalization.
The difference between you and them is that you assume that people are trying to rob someone and also have no genuine interest in the product. I myself can get their names under "special thanks" on my albums.
that's why im God Box's (quite a young boutique pedal brand) main artist endorsee. cause i tell them what iwant, how i want and why i want and they take it as a general musician preference. im not trying to get me a signature pedal lol, im just saying stuff i encounter and all and it's on a almost daily basis.
so yeah give me young brand names, i want some more endorsement
I dunno, it started that way, as a rather amusing affair in which Zoot got a free $42 pick, but there has been discussion on how the companies have responded and stuff with people.
I mean sure it's not exactly a high brow discussion, but come on, it's an internet forum, not everyone does want to discuss the ins and outs of pick manufacturers, I for one, would, but I know most people wouldn't, so I'm cool with talking about free shit along with my learning of companies response to people and stuff.
To be honest, since I've been coming here (which is about maybe 3 months prior to my joining) there's always been a mass amount of ridiculous threads, worse than this one. Worse than the "I want a Marshall for £100" that are around today. I distinctly remember loads of "I want to sound like Slash", "I want to sound like Kirk Hammett", "I want to sound like Dimebag" threads, which were just tedious! I think a lot of what it is, is a bit of nostalgia, things remembered are always much better than anything going on now.
I'll agree it wasn't presented as anything more than "I've tried to get a free pick and it worked", causing others to try it. But it has, as I've said, taught me how each company reacts and treats their customers (like how Dunlop will throw picks at anything, even when they aren't asked for one!).
I'm fine telling people which big brand gives away stuff, cos they can easily afford it. The one thing in this thread that has irked me, is people going to V-Picks and Gravity and places like that, V-Picks are doing quite well for themselves, but I imagine Gravity aren't doing as well, so they will need the custom of people as opposed to giving away free picks. It wouldn't be so bad if it was a sample prior to a purchase, but I assume a lot of people in this thread aren't going to be buying afterwards, otherwise that'd be a lot of picks they have to buy!
I've seen no one, nor done any, begging for picks here. People ask, and if they get shot down they leave it.
Yeah, the whole Gravity/other unknown companies thing is a bit annoying, though if these people try their picks then buy one I see no problem.
But as I've said I can't see a problem with getting free stuff from the companies that can afford it, and probably spend like, a matter of pennies for every 50 picks or something...this is probably a very under exaggerated view on pick manufacturing, but I know that Dunlop and Planet Waves won't spend a whole lot on the plastics they use, and the manufacturing methods will have paid for themselves by now.
Well that part was more to the guy who said "Because you're asking for free picks and strings, they'll raise the price", should have made it a bit more clear.
And I think it's human nature to think "Just how far can I go with this". That's why Zoot emailed Fender and Gibson, knowing he'd get shot down, but that attitude did reveal he could get an expensive pick for nothing.
Sure it's not exactly the classiest thing to do, but I can't see it really hurting anyone (this again isn't referring to Gravity picks or any other small business, but my thoughts on that are clear by now).
guys you're just talking gibberish..
i mean look i myself have more than 100 picks at the moment. all brand new in one place.
the thing behind this is that if i say like Gravity picks then il'l try and get into some better relations with Chris. if i dont like it. i'll tell him why i didnt and what i'd want it to have.
it's called relationship (in a musical industry)
second, sending you few picks that you really like is more likely that after your pick is done you'll go get the same thing than sitting down sending people to stores.
clearly if you are making say 50% profit from the price you sell your product for, you can invest at least 30% of it into giving away some samples which can be of a bigger PR than anything.
Say we're already talking of Gravity picks for few days already, I'll get mine and post a review. and tell some other people who play guitar saying 'Chris sent me a gravity pick, you gotta check it out' and they can play it and like it and go get some for themselves.
and finally, if you ask someone to send you some samples, it's not like he's obliged, if he doesnt want he will just say no
I say this is a a very cheap and a very effective PR for a company
I think guitar picks and the discussion thereof might be guitar-related.
Either way it's not like this is the only thread around...just don't read it if you want this particular discussion.
It's not really a case of saving $2 or anything. To be honest I have two picks that I've used for ages with each of my guitars, a handful attached to my keys and loads scattered about the house which are in some kind of limbo. I don't really need to have free picks.
It's a case of seeing what each company will do and how they deal with you.
Also there is of course the thing about free stuff being awesome...
Anyway, it's not like this is hurting any companies, Dunlop and Planet Waves can afford to give a handful of picks away (I've made my feelings on the smaller companies like Gravity picks elsewhere in the thread), and I'm sure they get plenty of people doing it, and probably even have some kind of amount budgeted that they can lose for free in this sort of situation.
So I think people should stop acting like we're the downfall of the world's economy cos we're asking for a couple of picks, and the companies are obliging in a friendly manner.
Cya in the next few months, we'll definitely miss you.
I seem to only get rushes of emotion when I listen to bands like Sonata Arctica, Dragonforce and Dream Theater. Recc me some of the gayest power metal you've ever heard
What, are we supposed to be impressed?
Who cares if people want free stuff.
In a span of a few hours in the middle of the night we received over 10,000 requests for free strings
^ Will you still be next time they **** one up and cause a shrapnel shower?
Note to self: Shrapnel Shower may be good name for war metal band...
make that Satanic Shrapnel Shower.
EDIT: Killing some time on MA and found this:
Though It'd make a nice addition to any " worst band names " or "worst artwork" lists going around.
Apparently they play Grindcore / Black / Death / Groove Metal...
Need I say more.
Easy. Mute the top string with your index finger.
Adding an E can make it sound more ambiguous - it could then be Em9/D.You need to add a note to stop it sounding congested?/quote]
That voicing sounds cramped, having that high e helps it a bit.Or add a different one to fill it up?
I don't get what you're getting at. It's the fifth, it's a fundamental tone of the chord? I don't see your apprehension heree.
In the context of a band you might want the guitar playing a simpler chord so it leaves room for other instruments.
look up the Cadd9 chord. You can usually substitute it for a regular C and it makes the transition between G C and D easier.
oh and by the way, I am From a country called Australia, its like down under the US kk?
And the taylor is the one i feel will be a few hundred dollars more, not the breedlove.
Breedlove American C25/Cre - $1799 (1866 USD)
Taylor 314ce - $1679 (1742 USD)
I've only played the taylor and I really really liked it.
o.o Really...are you sure it was the C25 Cre Herringbone...or was it just a normal C25/Cme sitka one? Either way...it must have been an atlas, I've yet to see an American one for that price...however...maybe since you're in the states...1200 dollars there is 1600 dollars here or something...or maybe that's just wishful thinking. Either way...this could be a great thing for me. I hope it was what it was for you xD
*Edit* And what's all this stuff I hear of western cedar wood only being good for fingerpicking...does this mean I should avoid getting a western cedar wood breedlove and instead just get a sitka one (I really think western is more visually appealing because it's darker...but I guess aesthetics aren't everything )
Oh haha, well like i said, the American C25/Cre Herringbone from breedlove is the guitar I really really would like to have, it has the right woods and all the features i would want, but the price I don't think will be less than 1400, and breedlove doesn't list the prices on their websites really. Amazon.com says it would be 1899...but...then a different site said in canadian dollars (that I would be paying in) that it is 2800? I'm just confused. If I can find it for maximum $1600 and bartre downwards I would... I just don't have any starting prices for it -.-
