Hey guys, I'll start by saying that I don't know if this is in the wrong section or not.
Today I was playing guitar and after about 30 minutes I noticed every time I slide a note down my wrist hurts. This isn't the first time I noticed this. When I learned the riff in Sleepwalker by Megadeth where the power chord is slid back and forth my wrist started hurting bad. Today I was playing Kick the Chair and the small slides from 0 to 3 is what flared the pain in my wrist up. Sometimes I have random wrist pains but its always in my fretting hand.
The way ways my hands hurt are: - if i hold out my arm and rotate from palm up to palm down. - It i have my out palm up make my hand go on an angle pointing towards the body of the guitar. (i hope that makes sense.) - If I make a fist then my wrist feels real tense. -palm down and making my hand point on an angle away from the body of the guitar hurts as well.
And sometimes it just randomly hurts weather i play guitar or not.
Soo.. What does this sound like. Diagnose me :P Thanks in advance.
Well, it would probably be extremely difficult to try and slip the pickup past the strings without cutting any. Afterall, it is fairly large and the space between strings n body rather small. Eh, who says you have to put the same old strings? Buy a fresh new pack of strings (guitar strings arent expensive) and put them onto your guitar when you get rid of the pickup. Succesful operation + fresh new strings = double win.
Lol i didn't mean old strings. But wouldn't i have to do something with bridge? I was told not to take them all off at once. Thanks alot for your help btw. The finnish ARE awesome lol. (Alexi Laiho ftw)
Hey guys i got an Ibanez s470 DXQM When i use the tremolo my low e string sticks to the magnet on the middle pick up. So I lowered it but it still isn't much better.
I figured I might as well remove it because I NEVER use it. I don't know why I bought it because it is a waste. Also sometimes I hit it with my pic with can be annoying. So my question is, how do i remove it?
To be honest with you... Just save up more money. I've bought 2 Ibanez guitars for around 650, another about 800. I haven't been completely satisfied with either of them. Get a prestige Ibanez and you'll never have to buy another guitar.
I'll PM you a picture tomorrow. Maybe you'll know. Its pretty minor it just won't accept the allen wrench. It almost looked like i could get pliers and use those but I don't wanna mess it. And to be honest I'm from a small town. Only one person I know could do anything with it but in a way he'd only be taking a shot in the dark just like me.
Edit: Yeah i'm pretty sure it was the posts because they were on both sides of the trem.
I hope this is the right place to ask this so here it goes. I got an ibanez s470 for christmas. It is the first guitar I've owned with a tremolo system so I'm a trem noob. Don't know much about them. But i searched how to lower the action and figured it didn't seem to hard so I tried. This is where it went wrong however, I turned it left and where the allen wrench went in cracked off a little bit.
Its very hard to explain. Its not really the screw that broke its just the half of the head of the screw that allows the allen wrench do its job. So my question is... what the hell do i do with it now lol. The other screw worked perfect however. Sorry if I didn't do a good job explaining my problem
To be honest, you don't need to get very much of your thumb over the E string. Its a pretty easy string to fret. Maybe you could try and position your hand differently. I'm just taking a shot in the dark so hopefully it helped.

I'm looking to buy a new amp in the near future and I plan on putting a lot of thought into whatever amp I decide on.
I don't know a whole lot about amps. But I want something better then the Roland Cube 15x I have right now. I play mostly metal like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax. On the odd occasion I'll play some All That Remains or Children of Bodom but nowhere near as often as I play the other bands mentions. I'd also like an amp that could do Bands like Led Zeppelin or Guns n' Roses. But ofcourse the first bands mentioned are most important.
I don't want to spend more then 500 or 600 dollars. I don't want to buy a used one either. When it comes to solid state vs. tube, I don't care, as long as it sounds good. Also I wouldn't say I'd be doing any gigging but it would be nice to have something powerful enough to play a small show miced or whatever. Thanks in advance!
^ Thanks, you can check out my other covers (Killswitch Engage, Lamb of God, Amon Amarth) if you want to. I have tried out a 15Watt Roland Cube and it wasn't heavy enough. Then again, I was playing it on a Squire.
My Roland 15x is actually really good for thrash metal.
no i mean to stop the notes all at once roll it all the way off really fast. this will give you time to completely stop the strings from vibrating, roll it back up, and do what you need to do. or you could mute it w/ both hands. depending on how much gain you use it's going to be quite difficult to completely stop the vibration the the string IMMEDIATELY w/o making some kind of noise. volume knob, volume pedal or killswitch. these are the things that will achieve what you're asking.
In this song you would have to be sick with the volume knob. I'm going to try using both hands, i'm having trouble coordinating it.
Irishman that seems to be working. Thanks man. I have Irish blood in me to by the way. Keep suggesting though.
I'm learning Leper Messiah, and you know that little bit before the verse where he plays F#5 and then stops the note. Well everytime I play that and stop i get this harmonic ring from the E string.
I stop the note but letting my fret hand relax and in other places when i do the same it works fine. So could someone tell me how to fix this, maybe with a new technique for stopping the notes. I have an Ibanez 260 FM if that helps any.
