Not stupid at all.
Yes, I'm talking about clear in a spray can. The reason I use/suggest automotive is it is UV resistant so it won't discolor.
You can get it in flat, satin or gloss.
The basic principle is the thicker the finish the better protection.
A "heavy" coat means to spray more at one time. Be careful though as the more you spray, the more likely it will run. Remember, you can't sand off and fix imperfections.
A "light" coat means to spray less at a time. This requires more coats to get thick enough but has a less likely to run. The problem with doing light coats, it may "orange-peel". This will give your finish a texture and appearance of an orange peel.
So, after you stain your practice board, practice a few ways with the clear.
Always keep your spray can 6-8 inches from your target. Begin spraying off to the side and don't stop until you past the other side. Move your arm in a sweeping motion. The slower you sweep across, the heavier you get, faster equals lighter.


You just gave me A LOT of good tips, man Thanks a lot!
Going to give it a try in the way you just described!

That would be satin/flat. But also unprotected. To add protection, you need a satin clear. I prefer duplicolor, yeah it's automotive but it works. Here's where it's hard, you have to spray it perfect. So take your now stained practice board, and clear it. Try a few styles, for instance. 1 heavy coat 2 light coats or just 4 light coats. It's so hard to predict what will give you the best outcome.


Thanks for trying to help me, man.
What do you mean by heavy and light coats? If I understand correctly, this 'satin clear' stuff is 'invisible' stuff, in a spray can, that comes on top of the stained body, right? (Sorry if this sounds stupid, but again, I'm a complete beginner).
Hello UG,

As a long-time lurker and amateur guitar builder, I am now posting my first decent thread in the gear building section. I really hope some more experienced people can help me out. I also hope that my post is 'complete' enough to sketch my situation and needs.

So, the thing is...
I recently bought a DIY guitar kit. It's a mahogany flying V guitar, and I really like the looks of it. As mentioned before, I am a complete beginner at this kind of stuff. My question is about getting help to paint it.

The guitar I'm basing it all on:
Picture 1
Picture 2

As you can see, the guitar has a Satin Red Wine finish. My dream guitar is a flying V with the same finish. Therefore, I'd like some help and information on how I should paint and finish my guitar exactly like it. Does anyone here have any experience with this kind of work? Is it hard for a beginner, or rather doable?

I appreciate ANY kind of help or response I get, people.
Thanks!

It's one of the most standard blues rock licks you will ever hear:


e|----------12-------
b|-------12----15p12-
g|-14b16-------------
d|-------------------
a|-------------------
e|-------------------


Repeat until the big bend, probably 15th fret on the high E.

Disclaimer: this may be in the wrong key.


Am I doing something wrong or does that sound wrong?
I need someone that can tell me how this is played:

The first solo of this song:
Obituary - Evil Ways
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhZqs_jcMhU


The solo starts at the beginning of the song.


I would like to know how the very first part of this solo is played. I've tried some stuff, but I'm kinda new to these kinds of things. Tabs, pointers, lessons on youtube (or whatever) would be appreciated!

Thanks!

The FX57 offers a unique distortion circuit with a built-in delay of 7 to 40 milliseconds for a distinctive thickening of the distortion effect. Creates more sustain. Controls include DELAY, which adjusts the time delay of the distortion signal that is added to the effect, LEVEL, PRESENCE, which modifies the tone or sound of only the distortion signal, and DISTORTION, which adjusts the amount of distortion applied to the original signal.

I'm not good at finding out these things.
The first riff is already on here, so I know that one.
Anyone can find the 2nd one for me please?
Hard to figure out the chords they use.
Can anyone help?

Thanks
You can use pedals on every amp =/
The Jackson one, for sure!

Bit boring and takes much space
Total waste of time... Play guitar instead!
Quote by Mullen2105
Don't underestimate yourself. Listen to some songs and make a basic 4 or 8 bar beat on tux guitar. Then just copy and past it over all the measures on the song. After you finish export it as a midi to like garage band or drumkit from hell and you have drums.
It's alot easier than it sounds. Plus black metal has minor changes in rhythm, it's rather straight the entire song.



Well, my black metal has a lot of variations in it. All riffs have their own rhythm etc.
The thing is, I know nothing about music theory and guitarpro itself. I would really appreciate it if someone else could help me out or perhaps learn a bit of guitarpro to me

Ankthebank, you're up for it? Thanks I'll whisper you with the material when it's ready (could be later today or tomorrow!)
Hello there fellow musicians,


I'm in need of your help! I'm writing music (guitar riffs and lyrics) for my solo project, but I would like the help of someone who can tab everything out in guitarpro. Drums is also something I can't do on my own. So I need the help of a person that can put tabs, written on a piece of paper and sent by mail, into guitarpro. Drums are to be filled in by yourself!
Oh yes: the music I play/make is mostly epic black metal with lots of tremolo picking in it. Not raw black metal!

Anyone can help me?
mail me at: snoodaerd@hotmail.com


Thanks alot

I used an adapter that was used for my old Zoom-processor
Thanks anyways!
Hello there fellow UG'ers,


I have recently bought a guy's Digitech Death Metal pedal (I love it btw).
But now I was wondering...
The thing uses alot of energy (in battery form atm). I could use the adapter, but can't find the right one... I need it pretty cheap, since I have spent my money on other things recently.

I prefer an offer (in euros) from in or around Belgium, so it doesn't cost me too much to ship.

I could also use links to sites/ebay where they sell new or used ones!


Thanks
Is the ec-1000 really that cheap??
