Tremolo pedal and reverb, brah.


that is what i was thinking but the program i am using sucks at fixing up certain tones. I'll just have to work at it till it is near perfect. Thanks
I know that this is probably in the wrong thread but i don't use the forums much.

In the song "My mistakes were made for you" by the last shadow puppets, the lead guitarist has this tone that he uses throughout the entire song (you can hear it right from the start) and i can't figure out what effects he is using.

I'm asking this because I am recording this song for my MIDI class in school and i have to have the tone to finish this particular track.

the song is in the video below.

Thanks for your help.
i got that book and all it is is arpmandude telling you how to do multiple tapping techniques. it just teaches you how to tap using scales and how to use your pick hand fingers to tap along with. its a great book so that wood be a good start.

but tech death tapping is easy if you practice it. and it sounds nice when you tap and slide with the same finger.

look at obscuras anticosmic overload guitar pro and go to the solo. that is a great dual guitar tapping solo.
its probably the string gauges and what tuning you have the guitar. i had one of my guitars with an edge III and i put it in c# tuning and i had .10 gauge strings in it and i could tune it but once i divebombed or bent a string it went way out of tune. i changed the string to a .12 gauge and it stays in tune perfectly no matter what i do with it.

just check your gauge and tuning.
i got some d'addario strings. the gauges are .011, .014, .018, .028, .038, .049

is that good enough for that tuning?
I'm about to change the strings on my guitar so i can go into C# tuning and possibly dropping that as well; i have a floyd rose tremolo on that guitar.

question is what string gauges should i get so i don't have any problems with the strings messing up?

the nut at the top of the neck... you need to tighten it after you tune it with the normal tuners...


i got new tuning nuts cause the old ones were bad but it still messes up. i tighten the nuts as tight as i can so that isn't the problem.

How old/new are your strings?


the strings are 2 months old but i have not played the guitar in a month and a half cause of the problem.
i cant remember the gauge but i think they were light gauges.

and what nut are you talking about??
Howdy, i have a Galveston Acrylic V with a floyd rose tremolo in it. i put on D'arriaos (however you spell it) strings but cant remember the gauge of the strings though.

The problem is that i have everything set up on the guitar like its suppose to; it has 3 springs on the bottom and i loosened the screws near the spring to help the tension. i have the strings set up in C# tuning and have the tremolo bridge flat and even with the guitar body (it also takes forever to tune it cause it just seems to go back to how it was but then eventually it just tunes correctly)

i'll have it set up to play but the thing is that when i touch the tremolo bridge in anyway like using the whammy bar or using the tuners on the bridge EVERY string goes out of tune horribly; the strings will detune in different directions then every other string. i can't explain it and neither could the associate at guitar center.

i need help please.
What is a good first album of Frank Zappa that i should listen to to open myself up to what he is about. I've been meaning to listen to his music but just didn't know where to start
Which one would win in a battle?

The battle is not going to be based off of them fighting in the super smash brothers games, this is a real fight between the two of them and no one else interferring in anyway.

"_____ would win just cause he's awesome" is not a real reason; base your answer on actual evidence that can be proved true and blah blah blah.

Allright I'll keep up with it,is dividing 1/4th of the time into replaying previous songs enough?


thats impossible. i have been playing for 3 1/2 years and i play covers most of the time. mostly cause improvising does not help you learn technique that well.
it happens at first but after you get used to the instrument you will just know. for example i listened to mother earth by ozzy the other day and i knew how to play the solo but i completely forgot the song but i just knew how to play the solo even though i have not played the song in a year. i picked up my guitar and just played it note for note. you learn things and forget about them but they will always be in your head.

just spend a lot of time playing those songs randomly and choose a section. just play alot and give it time

SW synth in your volume menu


thanks, it works now
yeah, title says all.

pretty much the program does not play sound at all, not even when you put in a note

the volume for the instruments are at 13 (default)

i had it on my computer for 2 months and this is the first time it has messed up

You're also not supposed to upload, y'know, songs that aren't yours...


i know; but how else am i suppose to find out who this is? plus no one can identify who it is so how are they gonna copyright me?

Frantic Disembowelment is not instrumental...wtf?


i know it isnt an instrumental but they have a video of them playing the song without corpsegrinder and everyone thinks it is an instrumental. plus i didnt want dumass UGers to just say that.

What you experienced is called the color opponent process theory

well kiss my grits brother ****er; you win!!!!
okay, i ran across this yesterday when i went to the urination facility (known as the bathroom for most people) late at night to pee! i tried it again today and it works and it is weird.

what you need to do is GET YOUR EYES FOCUSED ON THE DARK (take a dump in the bathroom with the light off, it will be faster in this experiment), have a room with a mirror and a light switch the turns on and off fast.

1. go into your room with a mirror.
2. make sure there is no light in the room

once you have done that put your hand on the light switch and LOOK (dont stare) into the mirror and turn the light switch on and off really fast. if your eyes are focused to the dark enough, your body and surroundings will turn purple then dark (if they didnt do that then focus on the dark more).

ONCE YOU FLIP THE SWITCH DO NOT MOVE YOUR EYES.

after about 2 seconds of you turning purple you will see a picture of yourself in front of the mirror and then it will fade to darkness.

do a stupid pose to prove this works.

to make it more freaky do it and after you turn purple turn around or move and it will look as if you are still in front of the mirror.

A lot of people think its "crazy drunk"

In reality, the term was coined for a type of music combining funk and hyphy. Crazy funk

crunk - crazy funk


you seem right captainCRUNK, i bee-weave you. it is just that people of a darker saturation of me made it a adjective. silly black people making something retarded like them so they can use it endlessly
Quote by codyadamscea
I believe it means "crazy drunk" from what I've been told.

same here


i dont think that is specific enough cause people say "shananayah's body is so crunk" or circuit city with "our prices are so crunk you with have enough money to buy a gun and kill your friend!"
what the f uck does "crunk" mean? i've asked 7 black people and they can't tell me.
Can someone please translate the guitar pro version of this song to regular tab so i can read it and play it. i want to mostly learn the sweeping. it purdy
