I'd give myself a 6. I can write some pretty damn good riffs, but I don't practice scales or play classical music. I'm kind of on a Jerry Cantrell sort of deal. I don't shred a lot but I make the notes I play count.
Anyways, I don't know about it, EMG's don't really give you a broad spectrum in terms of sound, and from the price I'm guessing it's a bolt on with an un-original Floyd. I love Deans but the good ML's and Razorback's are too pricey for my budget.
Better tone, better tone because the sound resonates more evenly throughout the wood. With plywood you get almost no tone because the vibrations have to travel through so many different mediums of wood and glue that it really kills the nice warm clean sound you would get with a wood such as mahogany.
The LTD, I just don't trust the durability of long ass hooked horns on any guitars or basses. They should be reinforced with carbon fiber or something like with what Perry did when he was building that death metal guy's bass.
Eh, well, depends really on what sound you're going for. The Iommi SG has a 24.75 neck with 24 frets which is kind of a rarity, but it also allows you to do fast playing on the upper frets easily. The Les Paul's come with the standard 24.75/22 fret necks, but because the body is thicker you get a much warmer sound.
The words "HAIL SATAN" or "DROP ACID"... both things that Phil Anselmo said when Pantera played Floods live during the Extreme Steel tour.
Eh, that girl orgasming in the beginning of More Human than Human by Rob Zombie makes it kind of hard to listen to in public. Also, the words "Praise Allah and kill the infidels" should probably never be used in a song.
You have to get used to that extra string, and you'll confuse your middle range strings alot from being so used to playing a 6 string. But after bit of playing you get used to it. I love mine, those 5 extra notes give you so many extra combinations for chords and scales etc.
Ok so basically I was on the bus ride home from a school ski trip and I was bored so I got this girls number from my friend (shes our friends girlfriend so I sort of know her) and I started texting her random perverted and disgusting **** like an idiot, and she didn't have my number so she didnt know who it was. After a few texts she told her mom and now I'm really screwed.
Whats the worst case scenario for what can happen to me? I'm pretty sure that was sexual harrassment...
...Sexual harassment, probably a school suspension and community service at the worst.
How low can I tune before I need to adjust my truss rod? I like down tuning but I don't want to damage my guitar, so I was just wondering. Also, how do I adjust it?
Well, assuming the lower you tune the thicker your strings will get, the tension should balance out pretty well. I would be more worried about tuning to standard with thicker strings than tuning down with thinner ones.
I'm thinking it might be a sustainer and he just keeps hitting harmonics. You can see him moving his hand around between 12, 7, 5, and 3 and then he's hitting the whammy bar when he touches them to get it to vibrate the strings and produce the harmonic.
It's going to be a bitch finding 8 string parts man. Try contacting someone like BlackMachine guitars, they're still fairly small and they might tell you where they get their parts for their 8 string builds.
Personally I prefer "Power Metal" over all of the glam albums because Phil was doing those crazy 80's screams like "Weaahhhhh!!!!!!" But, you can't really find them anymore for sale because after they went crunch and groove they didn't go back. Personally I just downloaded them, because I doubt Vinnie Paul, Rex, or Terry Glaze are going to go after royalties against downloading those albums.
Blackouts have been out for a while. Most of the attention is going to the 7 string version because most of us 7 stringers have been waiting for a good active 7 string pup that doesn't require us to route a bigger hole out of our guitar for it.
I never considered that with the deep set neck you could get a lot of sustain with the neck pickup without over doing it with a neck through and high output bridge pup. So technically what you're doing is giving it a lot more sustain and playability without having to go through the hassle of measuring the wings and making sure you cut everything right. You work wonders with wood Perry, you really do. Great work!
