Hey guys, a quick question, Does anyone know if theres a difference in pickguards between the standard, custom, traditional as far as size, screw hole positions and pick-up placement...or are they all the same. Thanks y'all.
Looking at a gibson 2012 les paul that im interested in buying used For $1900.00 Can anyone tell me if this is a good price for that model? Also where does this model sit compared to the Traditional and standard models of the gibsons??? Thanks.
the first 3 lines are killer, id work on the next 2 lines though the y dont seem to belong the " screaming in the dark line is great too, its an ok piece, the 2nd n 4th stanza doesnt have as smooth of flow but i guess its how im reading it,
i also agree with hippieboy..the 3rd stanza should be changed around...and make the last 3 lines there your first three. pretty good.
------------------------.......................A New Dawn......................----------------------------
Im wasting away like a pencil drawing fades from the rain into nothingness Like a proud beam of light whos star burnt out many light years ago but it just doesnt know Like a sea shell abandoned left alone now and stranded in the sand waiting for the tides Like the child whos afraid praying for the light of day in the middle of the night
Its gonna be alright,Its gonna be OK Theres a new dawn rising and good things are comin my way Its gonna be alright,Its gonna be OK Its gonna be just fine cuz this worlds yours and mine and I think Ill stay, come on lets play
im liking this, "a book of things I want to tell" is probly my fav line......maybe change the word "things" though...to maybe..."truths, tales "...something other than things and why didnt you use that line in the 2nd Chorus?...just curious...a pretty good tune though.
this is kind of long and is in desperate need of a ray of light, some sort of hope, very last stnza, losing sleep,losing your mind,love is lost ,"till the next time...." theres your ray of light cuz you know there will be a next time.
Im sure this makes a pretty good punk song' the part "Through gritted teeth" may work better if you switch it up,n turn it around like, "... your an idiot, this music in your heads , to floor you hypocrites..." sumthing like that....nice effort though.
Wow , the 1st 3 lines are great, i think "their" is the word you want to use in some places, if not my bad.Not sure why you use "stood on a curb" rather than "stand" but that line is great too. nice poem.
I think the first two stanzas were great, usually rhyming a word with itself,in this case "matter" doesnt really work well but in this case the wording had it fit well.
Ithink incite me would be a better word to use than excite me but the next 2 lines having brightly and unsightly didnt seem to go well.As for the last stanza, too many "tions "for my liking. Over all the flow was nice and my fav stanza is definately the 2nd...nice ....I just put up a tune called "Go Away"...appreciate a crit...
i was trying not to say the name cuz i wasnt sure if its allowed but since you asked, go to brossard picks.com theres all kinds there. They are very comfortable to hold once you get use to them and id imagine last forever,the few people i know that play and play far better than i, like em and offered me a few bucks for 1.
I ordered some picks from a guitar mag awhile ago and have recently started to use them and am having mixed feelings about them. They are different kinds made of ivory,ebony,rosewood among others and i was wondreing if any experienced players out there use them and what they think of'em. OH ! and are they harder on strings????????????? thanks eh!
the lyrics were pretty good,reading this didnt really flow all that great but after listening to the actual song,youve meshed it nicely. I also like how you stop singing and go to the speaking stanza than back to singing.some guitar parts were very cool,but i think you should try n add a vibrato to every other riff. A nice piece though and the recording was pretty good too. thx 4 critng "A Little Prayer"
Ya kinda repetative but alot of great blues songs are,thats the blues style.The lyrics are definately bluesy,nice job ...verse 1, last line....."And left for the road"........maybe try....."And left, aidios" i know i didnt spell that right but since you used road earlier in the verse.....just a thought....... thx for the crit on "A Little Prayer."

WOW ! havnt been here a while, seems like a huge debate over the Martin X guitars......I too did some investigating and was told that they were basicly made from the waste/sawdust of the other Martins that are made. Mr Martin himself was touring the factory and asked what was done with all the saw dust, he was told it went to a hardwood flooring company where they made floor panels from it.......so thats how the idea of making guitars from it came about....................anyways....I did not buy the Martin,instead i bought a Takamine EAN76 with hard case. A great sounding guitar at half price. Had it a couple months now and Im loving it.
Most guitar makers have a model around the 500 dollar range, id suggest walk into a shop,start playin all the ones that you like than ask a salesman 4 help. I just purchased a 1500 dollar Tak,acoustic/electric for 700 jus cuz its been there too long. The price on it said 1500 so if i hadnt asked, i never would have concidered it cuz that was out of my price range. Im sure alot of shops have a guitar like this hangin around.....good luck....
Oh, and thanks to the guys that responded to my thread about the Martin DXM, Im so glad i didnt buy it now...Cheers!
The first line right off the hop reminded me of an old INXS song that I havnt heard in ages, the last line of this stanze" i dont give a ****" doesnt really fit unless its sarcasm cuz its obvious you do give a ****.....(thats just how i see it) The "D is for"........."E is for".... parts are awesome, rolled really nice,great word selections here, now im feeling a "PANTERA" type vibe. wouldnt change a thing on either of these stanzas. nice job.
Metal has progressed so much since the Sabbath ,Priest, Maiden reign,I mention these three bands cuz lets face it,talking old school, these guys were tops. yet, todays metal is filled with alot of old metal.weather played faster,slower,backwards,inverted, so I cant see anyone liking the new stuff and not like the old.
For me ,metal started with Sabbath.Though there were alot of heavy bands, they were still more hard rock,(imo). Iommi gave birth to Heavy Metal guitar, probly even down tuning and power chords, and if he didnt, he certainly mastered it and made it what it is today....again, just my opinion.
