didnt have anything to post but I remembered something immature and dumb. when I was playing halo with a buddy on campaign theres this alien with that sword that kills you with one hit. well he was coming after us and we ran inside a building and I told my buddy STFU or else he might here us. he was screaming really loud then I noticed wait im dumb how the heck can he here us lol.
damn dude you should have just killed the sword elite. If it was halo one should have just busted a cap in his head with the Magnum or jus stuck his face. Or if it was h2 Shoot him with the battle rifle and stick him. Sword elites are easy to kill. Why hide?
And ts wouldnt you notice you dont have a keyboard or mouse first?
I usually record with a 58 but the otehr day i decided to try a 57 i have lying around here. Didnt like the 57 at all. Much prefer the 58. seemed less harsh or something.
i am not sure.
I shall try again some day soon. may have been positioning of the mic maybe.
EDIT: also when i mic drums for recording i use a 58. I hate how the 57 is so directional. and as i can only mic the kit with two mics i need something that will capture mostly everything. but i may from time to time use the 57 as a bass mic.
first page of everything you wanted to know about tubes thread has this.
but i am not sure. i have jj(tesla) el34 power amp tubes and eh 12ax7 pre amp tubes in my marshall and it sound pretty good. although it is quite trebely and have to have my presence near zero or its just to much.
I have a 900 and probably am biased but 800's can be pretty expensive. Plus the 900 has the two channels which for me is convenience. 2000's are nice especially the TSL with the midi controls, makes it so simple to operate live. But I s'pose its a comprimise between convenience and a bit of sound quality, but the 800 and 900 are both great amps.
Midi controls on a tsl? modded tsl? or have i not looked at the back of my amp long enough?
Try to start a conversation with her about like current movies at the cinemas and such the casually say hey wanna go see that movie. i dunno.
just ask her to the movies methinks. if she doesnt want to go she isnt interested. if she does she is or she thinks of you as a friend. Its good because its not as forward as being like hey wanna go out .
seems like your friend is a stud.
its okay he wont find happiness. he will go through girls like i dunno something that goes through things fast. And he will end up being lonely.
Cheapest way would be to get a guitar to input thingy jack. I dunno the name. Basically it converts the size of a guitar lead jack to the size of a normal headphone jack. Just plug that into the microphone input of your computer and download Audacity. It'll cost $4 maximum.
hey sorry to thread hijack but would aiming a fan at your amp be bad for it? like to cool it. as my amp getts quite and it is summer here and it gets very ****ing hot. and i dont want my amp to overheat.
so would a fan hurt my amp/tubes at all? and would it cause buzz?
i played a ad at allans music and i didnt like it all. Probably because it was eq'ed bad and it was nearly cranked at all. Played a tiny terror at my local store and it was ****ing awesome. But it was cranked.
So i would say tiny terror from what i have actually played. But out of what i have heard id go rocker.
Lead channel(i use this for about 90% of what i play riffs and solos). Treble: 9 Mid: 4 Bass: 9 Presence:0-1 Reverb: 2 - 3 Tone shift button in(pretty sure this scoops mids) Deep button usually on (adds bass methinks) Volume: 4ish at gigs and pract Gain: 8 - 10
Crunch(havent changed this since i did a gig and everyone used my gear so my eq got messed around with) Treble: 8 Mid: 2 Bass: 5 Presence: 0 - 1 Reverb: 2 - 3 Tone shift button out. Volume: usually around 4ish at gigs and practice Vpr switch out(with vpr in it just sounds like utter crap compared to out) Gain: 8
Despite my lead channel having very little mids my amp cuts through the mix quite well. ****s all over the ashton the other guitarist uses(not his).
Maybe mine cuts through because i have a mid orientated amp (marshall) aand a basswood bodied guitar? dunno.
Anyways i quite like the sound that is produced with these settings and my guitar. suits what my band plays.
EDIT: Also MXFNCK ima check out those settings and what they sound like. What buttons do you have in?
That said, I was at a small gathering of people recently (5 or 6 of us for my girlfriend's birthday). Anyway, she was sitting on me quite happily (in a neutral way, in a room full of people :p).
Anyway, she was a bit tipsy and there was a guy who played guitar there he played along to the i-pod for a bit and kept trying to make me take it, cause he knew I played. I kept refusing cause: I can play for crowds fine, but little groups make me feel like it's an exam.
Anyway, eventually I took the guitar and I was basically just holding it, playing it so quietly (it was an unplugged mint green strat) and about 20 seconds later I literally had to hold my girlfriend away from my neck and the rest of me for the sake of decency.
Obviously it's not really the same, ie. we already go out, but I thought i'd share that vaguely relevant story.
I think gf's just are really proud and they want everyone to know you are there so they like yeaaah.
same with my gf after i had a gig saturday. she was like yeah. but REJECTION. burnt her good. now im sad cause im not going to see her for a week.
Yeah your bassists amp must not be turned up enough.
Still your drummer really needs to learn how to play soft. How many pairs of sicks does he go through in a month? And if he is breaking skins. like putting holes in them or tearing them in the middle (not undoing from the side of the rim) alot he REALLY should learn how to.
Talk to your drummer about it nicely. not like a dick just say hey you reckon you could hit alittle bit softer because we cant hear ourselves. He should oblige(sp?). And if he doesnt he is just a wang.
Another solution is saying your amp is maxed out on volume and actually turn it down. this will make him play softer or you just wont be able to jam.
