each of my parents gave me like $200 towards my Ibanez V-Blade and i already had a $150 gift card for Guitar Center. and they bought my RG for Christmas which was about $300. the rest of my stuff i got myself.
yeah it was just the first demo of it. we're re-recording it in a couple weeks as well as an actual full-length song. we draw influence from metalcore, thrash, melodic/technical death metal, pretty much everything. i guess i'll tell em to switch it to just metal. i never really caught that in there. thanks for pointing it out.
thanks for the input. i do kinda tend to force the rhyming sometimes. i'm still fairly new at writing lyrics, i've mostly just done music up until recently. i might rework it a bit but i think it'll do for the most part. i'll check your's out i guess.
sometimes, sometimes not. gotta be discreet with it.
check out my band Transcendency. we only have a short acoustic (well, clean electric) interlude up at the moment called "Zero" that will serve as an intro to our upcoming song "My Oblivion" which will hopefully be recorded and posted within about two weeks. until then, read our info and add us if you want and you will be the first to hear of any news as it becomes available. thanks.

I can't believe that you're gone
I can't believe that it's done
I'm left here wondering how
Can't help but miss you now
I can't erase from my mind
Reasons I can't seem to find
I'm left here wondering how
Can't help but miss you now

I held you in my arms and gripped
I tried to hold on but I slipped
I can't forgive myself for losing you

And all I can say is that I'm sorry I failed you
I see that you've moved on so goodbye forever

It kills me more than it seems
To still see you in my dreams
I'm left here wondering how
Can't help but miss you now
How could this happen so fast
Who said this love could not last
I'm left here wondering how
Can't help but miss you now

I held you in my arms and gripped
I tried to hold on but I slipped
I can't forgive myself for losing you

And all I can say is that I'm sorry I failed you
I see that you've moved on so goodbye forever

Here I stand alone, with no place to hide
Wish that you were here, here right by my side
And I think of the first time that we kissed
How could it end like this?

What I'd give to have you back again (x4)

(guitar solo)

And all I can say is that I'm sorry I failed you
I see that you've moved on so goodbye forever

just depends on what you like man. i personally would pick the Alexi-600.
lose the auto-wah and get a Crybaby. i have the 535Q, it's an excellent wah pedal and probably one of the most versitile ones Dunlop makes so i'd stongly recommend it to you.
why would you want 2X the JB's? go for a '59 or a Jazz in the neck position.
if you like the LTD Alexi-600 try the Jackson RR24 as well
i'd have to say John Petrucci. i could probably benefit a lot from playing a day with him cuz he knows so much.
niiice catch dude. if you're looking to replace the pickups with the ones he used put a Bill Lawrence L500XL in the bridge (flipped upside down if you really want it to sound Dime) and a Seymour Duncan '59 in the neck.
Original Floyd Rose ftw!

Heartwork by Carcass can be played in E standard I believe.


Carcass plays in B standard dude.


Symptom of the Universe by Black Sabbath has gotta be up there i think. one of the very first thrash riffs written.
C, F, A#, D#, G, C (much of their new stuff is drop A#)

the Jester Race-Clayman era had some of their best stuff. try some stuff in there.
learn everything else for Rust in Peace!
Ibanez VBT700 V-Blade
go for it. would give easier upper fret access.

btw, it looks great! good job.
V's are great. they're not too hard to play sitting, just hold it with your right leg in between the wings and you're good to go.

the Alexi-600 isn't quite like an RR if that's what you're wanting. plus it has a passive EMG (or Duncan Blackout in the new ones) as opposed to the EMG 81 in the RR24. the Hellraiser V looks ugly i think. the bottom wing is longer than the top wing, wtf?
i haven't played the C-1 Artist but the C-1 Blackjack is pretty sweet. pretty much the only differences i can see are the inlays, binding, and the C-1 Artist has pickup covers. it says the scale-length is 26.5" but it's really 25.5", they must've got it confused with the baritone version.
hmm, tough choice but i'd probably go for that RR1. my friend has one and it sounds nothing short of amazing.
my Valveking 112 does fine for me. i suppose the 212 works the same except it has a couple of extra knobs in the back i believe. your call.
^ he said he needs tremelo arm, and the FR is $850.
that's for whimps. drop G# is where it's at!
