polychorus-small clone chorus

Does anyone know any good settings (mainly nirvana) for the e.h polychorus or the small clone chorusEH4600 pedals??
email me!

Re: polychorus-small clone chorus

: Those pedals are so easy to figure out. Listen to the record, play with the settings and you might come up with something better than Nirvana.

Ovation Celebrity Delux

I have an Ovation Celebrity Delux, Model Number CS257, Serial number 70006700. Does anyone know the average battery life of this guitar. Please e-mail the details. Thanks.

Re: Ovation Celebrity Delux

I have an ovation with a similar equilizer, and the battery lasts about 4 months. All the battery does
is run the eq and the preamp, which doesn't take much juice at all. I think yours would have a light
that indicates whether or not the battery still has life in it. Have fun!
JM

Re: Ovation Celebrity Delux

The maual at the Ovation website says the battery should last about 100 hours of playing time. It is important to note that when you plug the cord into the guitar, the equalizer is switched on, so you must unplug from the guitar to save battery life. Here is a link to the electronics page about the OP24+/C

computer program?

Hi,

Is there a computer program that via the use of a midi card could help me learn to play?

Or even without the use of one.

Thanks in advance

Steve

PS Please reply via email.

Re: computer program?

Dear Steve,
I'm working on a small program that'll teach you the 5 major scales + the 5 pentatonic scales, and then play a midi version that you can play along with for practice... would you be interested in a prog like that? email me at 200000691@ctech.ac.za and I'll let you have a copy when I'm done.

Re: computer program?

There is a computer-add on guitar situation called a G-VOX. I dont know if they are still available but if you need one I have one I would sell

Re: computer program?

http://www.pcworld.co.uk

look in software, general, music

There is a range of stuff. Though how it'll really help without a teacher or someone to get you started I don't know.

What is needed to become a Kirk Hammet ?

I have recently begun doing some of Kirks slow solos, (Fade 2 Black, Sanatarium, and so on) . But what should I practice if want to do some of the rippers, I also would like to know just what should I practice in terms of scales and theory to become a true 'slasher'. Thanks for reading

: YOU answered your own question.

Re: What is needed to become a Kirk Hammet ?

Hmm, he has a guitar...you have a guitar. You're an idiot...he's an idiot... Looks like you're half way there, killer..

Re: What is needed to become a Kirk Hammet ?

Kirk uses pentatonics and the phrygian scale alot in his solos.

Re: What is needed to become a Kirk Hammet ?

Hm........You must know all the major and minor scales and you must practice your fingers every fucking day like Kirk,and thats it,i do just like that!!!

Re: What is needed to become a Kirk Hammet ?

You'll have to start by locating his parents.

Re: What is needed to become a Kirk Hammet ?

Take lessons from his teacher ... the best guitarist there is ... Joe Satriani !!!

Re: What is needed to become a Kirk Hammet ?

Alright these people have given you no help whatsoever so I'll try.First of all Kirk is a genius
of a guitar player and someof his stiff is practically "unlearnable" to almost everyone.
hmmmm what you should practice - first of all you must get the technique down, (stacato pic king)
, tapping) Kirk uses lightning fast pick strokes so practice just picking a single note as fast as
you can. Another thing Kirk uses a lot of and other metal guitarist as well is triplets. This
is 3 notes played consecutively using that stacato picking. For example ------12--15--16
Try playing this using tapping or stacato picking. A perfect example of this is the "One" solo
where it begins with 3 sets of triplets similar to this.. To become a true metal guitarist you
must learn and master the pentatonic scale. Variations of this scale are used in every single
Metallica solo. It is the core of Kirk's solos. Hope this helps you. I was just like you about 2 1/2
years ago. I first learned stuff like fade to black, sanitarium, nothing else matters, and
now have mastered solos such as Creeping death, ride the lightning, one, master of puppets
and so on. So keep at it.

Re: What is needed to become a Kirk Hammet ?

I am a guitarist, and I play three fourths metallica. I know alot of kirk's solos, and I suggest you learn the last "One" solo. When I learned that I was able to learn almost any solo I wanted. Also, it takes you through the technique that he uses. Well I hope I helped a little.

What are the 7 modes?

Could somone explain these 7 modes I keep hearing about??

Re: What are the 7 modes?

The 7 modes are major scales starting on different root notes.The Key of Gmaj;G=Ionian mode,A=Dorian, C#=Phrigian mode,ect.,ect.Certain modes are very useful in special situations.Example,the Dorian can be used over a 7th chord.Or a 2,5 transition.These modes are already in your blues scales.Which ones you'll use depends on the tune's chord structure.
Good Luck

7 nmodes mnemonic

Here's useful mnemonic to remember the modes:

"If Dora Plays Like Me, All's Lost"

Ionian
Dorian
Phrigian
Lydian
Mixolydian
Aolean
Locrean

These are in order. For example, in the key of C (no sharps or flats):

C Ionian (major)
D Dorian
E Phrigina
F Lydian
G Mixolydian
A Aolean (minor)
L Locrean

Thus, if you use the same notes in the key of C major, you change modes depending on your root.

Help wanted with pickup DIY

Hi,
Anyone got technical know-how about electrics?
I'd like to know if anyone can give me advice about how to re-wire single coils to act as a humbucker on my strat... I understand I need to reverse the polarity of, say, the middle pickup, but HOW??
JD

Re: Help wanted with pickup DIY

hey.....i'm pretty sure using that method, what u gotta do is take the middle pickup, unsolder it, and make sure to solder the middle wire to the GROUND wire of the bridge pickup, and the shield or outside wire to the MIDDLE wire of the bridge pickup. But i can tell you from experience, you will still get some buzzing out of it, and they now sell fender lace sensor pickups in three different tones for fairly cheap, like 89 bux!!!! I'd go for the modern double-coil-in-a-single-coil package.(The lace sensors)

How true is this?

I´ve been told that Mesa Boogie amps are of great quality, but often don´t manage to withstand the test of being on the road. In other words, they get messed up quite often. I would like to know this, since I am considering getting myself one. I was thinking about the nomad series, or the roadking. Any advice, suggestions or comments I would appreciate. Thanks

: Pass on the boooooogie. NOT the amp they use to be/I am suspicious of ANY amp builder that uses Chineese tubes.

Re: How true is this?

I got a nomad 45, and i'm very happy with it. awesome tone, plus its kool cause its a combo, portability is good. i ain't seen a road king, but they look pretty kewl mcgool indeed. all i can say is really try each out with ur own guitar and maybe even leads. the reliability is'nt an issue i think, but ya know, shit happens. I think u'd be fine with mesa. and if u don't like the chinese tubes, get some aftermarket nice tubes aka groove tubes ect ect, and use the originals as backups.

Re: Warlock

The NJ (New Jersy) series is better built. They are made in Japan, but still a very nice playing guitar. The Platinum and Bronze series are cheaper made, and made of cheaper material. The points on the Platinum and Bronze series are more rounded and less pointy and the pickups are less responsive. But the biggest difference can be noticed if you go to a music store that has both types. Play them and you will know what I mean.

Korg AX1000G

I does anyone know any sites with paramater settings for the korg ax1000g all laid out to match a certain group?

Re: Korg AX1000G

sorry no, but I've got a question about your Korg.

Does it pick up the radio at all? Mine does unless you have the noise reduction on 10, so you loose a lot of distorsion and 'squeeky' sounds.

It might be because I'm near a radio mast, I don't know as it was fine in the shop.
You wouldn't know if there is any gadget I can get to cut out the radio? If not I might try posting my own message on the subject

It could also be down to my guitar (cheep epiphone les paul special), leads or amp

Cheers

Re: Korg AX1000G picking up radio

I had the same problem and contact the agent through my place for purchase. Apparently some have been recalled. Someone forgot to joining a couple of circuits inside the thing, so it sounds like a crakle. but it's only in one freq range. Mine was repaired and now works great.

Re: Korg AX1000G picking up radio

How much did it cost to repair?

I have got round the problem by running a wire from the jack that plugs in my guitar to the jack that plug in the output to the amp!!!
Unsightly but it does the job

Crossroads

I was wondering if anyone knows the name of the classical guitar piece ralph played at the end of the movie crossroads

Re: Crossroads

yea man, it is called "Eugene's Trick Bag" by steve vai. It involves some intermediate to difficult, fast picking and fingering movements. it is not as easy as it looks for ralph in the movie. by the way, do not try to play it with the fender tele, like in the movie. u will not get the drive out of the pickups, the neck is not for that kind of playing, and since the last note in the solo is on the 24th fret and bent up 2 1/2 steps the 22 fret tele neck would make it almost a impossible to pull off clean. u might pull it off on a tele by fretting it on the neck pickup but why not make it easy and do it on a shred guitar. even on the perfect guitar and amp the last note is impossible to pull off by yourself because it is 4 guitars overdubed, i guess ralph got help from god or something!!

Re: Crossroads

hey i know it its called eugene's magic trick bag by steve vai.

1976 Ibanez Explorer parts

Hi All! Can some one point me to where I can get parts like a machine head for one of my 1976 Ibanez Explorers? The base of the tuning pegs have a silver star on a black dot. Thanks for your help!- Jeff

Re: 1976 Ibanez Explorer parts

Jeff- What a trip- I'm Jeff Thomas too. I have three of the 76 Explorers and could use a machine head myself. I just missed out last week on a batch on Ebay. They occasionally surface there. Let me know if you come up with an extra one. Thanks! JT
