So what is your favorite pickup combination for the SG?
Iron Butterfly - In a gadda da vida
Under The Bridge - Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
Silent Lucidity - Queensryche
Southern: Gibsons (Les Paul, SG), Fender (Telecaster). It Doesn´t get any more southern than a tele.

Maybe you could buy one of those John 5 model. It has some twang to it without being anoying for metal. And it has two Dimarzio Dactivator PU on it that where made for heavy music.
Yesss!!! I love my SG Special Faded! I up graded it with some SD with a 59 on the neck and a JB on the bridge. I record most of my rythm tracks with it. Check it out!

I honestly really liked the flow of this. It fits well and it is descriptive. I enjoyed reading it.

Same here!
Thanks for taking the time to listen and read the song!
Hey,

I recorded this song for a compilation CD. I used the Tone Lab LE for the amp mod on the guitars and bass. All the instruments are live. I hope you enjoy it.

Song on Soundcloud
Hi,

This is a song I wrote for a compilation CD. It´s about being under the enchantes of a woman and loosing one´s free will:

Verse 1:
Little miss dark walking up slowly
Turning my head forward for attention
Intoxicating, unholy
Ain’t no backing from this starry complication

Pre-chorus:
So why won’t you tell me
What’d you think ‘bout love?!
I can’t explain it, I now it makes me wild
Keep getting closer, freshed up in bloom
Reeking havoc, my own lovers perfume


Chorus:
I can’t explain it; it’s just something that we do
‘Cause every time I loose, it always starts with something new
No point in fighting, temptation filled with violence
I feel my blood a rising when I crawl inside her wound

Verse2:
Suffocating from her madness
A clear case of acute depravation
Wonder when this’d be all over
Is this Heaven or is it damnation?

Pre-chorus:
So why don’t you tell me
What’d you think ‘bout love?!
I can’t explain, I now it makes me wild
Keep getting closer, freshed up in bloom
Reeking havoc, my own lovers perfume

Chorus:

I can’t explain it; it’s just something that we do
‘Cause every time I loose, it always starts with something new
No point in fighting, temptation filled with violence
I feel my blood a rising when I crawl inside her wound

Outro:

Right Love, Right Now! (x4)

Do you guys think Mastodon is kind of stonerish? If not what are the ingredients for a stoner band besides the use of recreational drugs??
Songs for The Deaf. Made my summer when it came out.
Rusty Cage, Outshined, My Wave...amazing songs....amazing band.
Gates. He can really hit the higher notes.

Gish was their most stripped down hard rock album. Siamese Dream was probably their best album overall. It's got a mix of balls to the wall stuff (Geek USA, Quiet) and some more laid back stuff (Mayonnaise, Disarm). And the guitar solo in "Soma" is incredible. Billy Corgan is a really underrated guitarist. Mellon Collie is another good album, but leans more towards being artsy. I didn't really like Adore or Machina all that much.

The guitar will be the cheapest of the cheap. The amp isnt that great either. Orange amps are good but not the crush solid state rubbish.

I mean the stuff will be fine to learn on but since you're being smart and researching the stuff i'd suggest you buy a guitar and amp seperately. Obviously you'll need like a lead and pics and stuff...

For guitars look into a yamaha pacifica 112

and for amps look into some form of amp modelling combo such as a vox valvetronix, roland cube (except the cube 15) or peavey vypyr these will give you access to a range of sounds early on so that when your playing develops you'll have an idea of what gear you could be looking at if you get to that points.

These are all cheap but good options to look at.

Going used on these will save more money if you dont want to lose cash and end up selling...

Try to buy a good amp. There are a lot of offers in the market these days. I see the amp and guitars as being the meat and the effects as being the seasoning. I rather have a nice churrasco or NY steak with some salt and pepper, than some spam and rosemary and wine.

I love using food anology!
Hey guys!

Any videos on youtube or other channels you recommend to getting started on singing?


I would really appreciate it!

Awesome post, Axemanchris!

I really appreciate it since I´m trying to get into that field of work!
I really try to keep it simple melodically while doing something interesting rythmically.
I think Richie Kotzen is a bit underatted. I really like his Chris Cornell meets Lenny Kravitz type of vibe.

No THAT´S what I call a guitar collection!
Nice dude! Very tight rythm playing!! Keep up the good riffin´!!!
I dig it man! It has a lot of a classic rock vibe to it. And the singer is really good. Kind of like mix between the Geddy Lee and Brian Molko.

Love the variety in their music. Oh and love the guitar brand also.

Thanks for sharing!!
So there is this video of John 5 doing a solo and he has his amp miced up with to very different mics. Can somebody explain what they are called and what are their roles in the sound?

Thanks!
Hey guys!

I thought this would make for an interesting and fun subject. How would you describe your tone or your ideal tone?
I second that! Go for it!!
Prog, Thrash, Alternative.
The Vox Tone Lab is a great value for the money. You get a wide variaety of high quality sounds in one equipment. It ain´t perfect, but what is? I specially like the reverbs amp emulations. But, I think this is more for the classic rocker who loves vintage tones more than for the modern metaler, although you can get some decent metal tones out of it.
Ahteh, go to this website:

Definitely Keith Merrow! Check out his stuff on his website. He has a lot of free downloads:

Dead on brother! You definitely know your pumpkins!

They have to be pretty recent, having emerged on the scene in the last 10 years or so, preferably with a BIG stadium sound like Guns n' Roses, rather than something garage rock.

Any suggestions?

Breaking Benjamin is a riff oriented band. They have some heavy stuff and some melodic stuff as well.
