hey all, can you recommend some gear for me (amps, foot pedals, the whole shebang)? I'm gonna try to start a band soon and really don't have a clue as to what to buy

the band will be a cross between Capital Lights ( and Silverstein ( yeah I know unique mix. so basically Post Hardcore Pop. hmm....

I don't want to spend over $1000 at the moment, but yeah I would like some recommendations. I'm sorry if I seem like an idiot but I know nothing about gear except that a practice amp won't cut it.

i really dont like that type of music, but i think you should try out some amps at a nearby shop ( make shure they can be louder than a drum, an average 100 watt combo amp will do.) and try to see if the amp comes with a footswitch that changes from clean to distorted, cause im guessing your gunna want to do that. thats what i would do if i were you, but im not so you can decide for yourself lol

That's a classical acoustic. The kind you use nylon strings on. No offense, but in it's condition, I wouldn't expect you to get anything for it at a pawn shop, or anywhere else.

+1 it appears like that too me also .
manfred mans earth band. im a more metal guy but blinded by the light is just so epic.

There are a lot of norms in our society that don't make sense, having "bad words" is one of them.

Words can't be bad, they're just words. Words can only be used to convey ideas, and it's the idea or the context that can be offensive, in which case any word can be used offensively. I think it's mostly the older generations that have it set in there minds since childhood that swear words sound dirty or offensive.

People should check out the video of Frank Zappa on Crossfire back in the 80's, it's a great video, Frank just owns a bunch of morons who want to push censorship of music on the country.

i am watching that right now. you know what your talking about, so i crown you as thread king (or queen), and thread winer lol.

because there meaning is held, to be used in situations of extreme.

For the same reason that the Earth is round, TS.

Cause of gravitational forces? still dont think so lol.
so in summer school today (yeah i failed geometric proofs so im in for that, laugh it up if you want, or just see how pointless geometric proofs are) so anyways i told a fellow classmate that i wasn't bull****ting her on a question with a ridicules answer, and my teacher got pissed at me, so im wondering why are swear words offensive to people? i find them as everyday words.

no there no wrting anywhere

it is a classical guitar

are you using nylon strings? cause using normal acoustic strings can ruin it.

2 words.... Conch Fritters.
light saber... no jm lightsabers caint look cool like swords can with cool deigns... but if you put bateries in a sword, and made holes in the middle that house led lights... it could look like a sword with that esp with the lights where the fretmarkers are at.

Quote by itchy guitar
I'm usually a pacemaker. I think its the highest, because I haven't seen it go over 120.

What are the stages of it? (ive always been in a coma.)

When the action is ridiculously high towards the bridge and ridiculously low towards the nut, you need to take off the neck and put something underneath it to raise it in the right way so you get a more even action.

It's because blacks were the ONLY people who were EVER enslaved

Well, unless you were being sarcastic...

EDIT: i see what you posted, and your right they all have lol.
Quote by edgeyyz
What do you mean? That every body should have equal opportunity?

well sort of. i mean it should be decided who is rite for college based on score instead of race. bad score, you have less opportunity. if your aisian, black, white, or hispanic it shouldent be any difference.
Edit: i also believe in stereotypical identification. like say your describing a person, and he is clearly a certain race, you can describe people like that. {Eg. Hey who is bobby? "oh hes that mexican dude over their."}
Quote by edgeyyz
Some minorities get better advantages to getting in so that colleges/universities look better for having a more diverse poulation. All in all, it's utter garbage. People should be admitted to college based on brains, not the color of their skin. Sorry, but that's actually anti-racist.

Im Puerto Rican and i couldent agree any more .

Why not just improve sex education. It is a complete joke in the UK. They teach it at a much too low age group.

i dont like Communist... and this sounds like a bad idea... but it also sounds like a Communist government would never pass any law like that, or any other type of govt.. would.

That's all I have at the moment.

Or you could use D locrean.
Quote by Its So Easy
I also think Dm is your best choice. It could be C7 (Bb is lowered 7th) but its definately not in E.

I agree with this guy.
Id say D minor. because your starting with d and it has all of the accidentals of D Minor
