Better call Saul
Thanks guys xD will I be able to become a good guitarist without a teacher?
It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.
Make multi-track recordings of yrself on audacity, its a lot more rewarding and you'll have a much better working knowledge of theory and production.
Sweeping? Tremelo picking? You should be able to pull off those techniques on any guitar you pick up with equal ability, even an acoustic. Anyone who needs a special guitar to pull off certain techniques is most likely not worth shit as a guitarist to begin with. Anyone who's an experienced guitarist should be able to get the basic feel for any guitar simply by holding examination. Other qualities/advantages of the instrument can still be tested with other techniques and other genres aside from shredding metal.
For the record, I AM a metal guitarist, and also utilize the above techniques. And guess what my main workhorse is: Fender Mexican Strat, stock with the exception of the bridge pickup (for obvious reasons).
And yes, I still believe one should make an attempt to limit oneself if they want to avoid looking/sounding like an annoying twat. I certainly do, and I annoy a lot less people by doing so.
If you play metal, save it for your circlejerk sessions with your other metalhead assbuddies. Show consideration to others around you when you're in a guitar shop. As much as you want to think otherwise, the general public has a very low tolerance for metal, and often regard it as shit music.
Yes, but that's bluegrass, something that 90% of people can at least tolerate. I'm talking about metal, which a majority of people can not tolerate.
This is funny, because I'm the complete inverse. Instead of trying not to sound bad, I actually intentionally limit myself on what I play and try to take into consideration that there are other people in that store who not only don't give a fuck about your skill, but also DON'T want to here it.
In other words, what I do here is:
•Avoid high speed tremolo picking, because that's just annoying wankery, unless you have a backing track or rhythm progression,
•Avoid sweep arpeggios, because that's often the ultimate indication sign that you're a complete douche who wants to show off,
•Put a limit on heavy riffs I play, because face it: the only people aside from you who enjoy metal (if you play metal) are a few employees, and douchebag teenagers. Playing nonstop chug and speed metal riffs is another big indicator you're a giant douche,
•Last but not least, I glance around occasionally to make sure no one is getting annoyed with me, and if there's someone nearby I'll often ask "I'm sorry am I disturbing you at all?" and occasionally offer to move.
People often tell me that this is all completely unnessacary, and I should just "not care what people think" and that I'm also a customer trying out equipment. But guess what else: those other people, are also customers shopping for equipment, and would most likely prefer not to be annoyed having to hear your shit they don't care about while shopping for what they want.
In the OP you made it sound like you've had it a while and are doing an annual tube swap on it, and tha tup until now you haven't changed the type of tube that the previous owner sold it to you with, you just kept putting KT77's in it.
You should rebias or at least check the bias every time you change tubes. Those have external bias probe points and adjuster don't they? If so there is no excuse not to.
It reads that you are changing tubes every year. Why? What sort of shit tubes are you running that only last a year?
I know a lot of people disagree with me.....but to me, the EVH Guitars (Wolfgang or whatever) are ugly as sin. They just seem so visually unbalanced.
To be honest, calling out the 'troll' is one of the worst things you can do. Just ignore them. Simple as that. As a general rule, don't anything anyone says in the Pit too seriously.
I assume you posted this deleted thread in the Pit? That'll why people 'trolled' you. It's the wrong sub-forum.
Also, I joked about my eyeballs bleeding because of you're frankly awful grammar.
Yes, but try to present it clearly and politely. Don't be a dick, basically.
i think that's feedback, are you using a shit load of gain?
or you'r just not muting all the string completely...
Why would you buy a tube amp then use a distortion pedal on it? I used to have the same distortion pedal and after I got used to the ht-5 I never used it again and sold it because the overdrive on the ht-5 just dominates. But whatever floats your boat I guess.
