Hi ! I have a big problem, I live in Hungary and the hungarian dealers wanna import Warlock bass 5 string only for prepayment. The situation is same in the neighbour countries, including Austria. The big(?) Musik-Produktiv wanna prepay too. I don't wanna buy an axe without I have a try. Pls help me, where can I find this guitar in Central Europe, near Hungary ?
Many thanks if you can help me.

Re: BC Rich Warlock bass 5 -- I NEED IT --- Hungary

I need a second bass for the stage, in the studios I use conceptional good basses.

practise and play comfortably

: What do you think about guitar rests (supports for guitar)during practising and performing.Do you have a lots of pains (musle pain, headakes, etc.) from keping a guitar in uncomfortable position?.Do you want practise longer and achive more?.Do you feel uncomfortable with footstools?. Did you hear about Aguado's tripodion?.Visit my web www.guitarrests.com
: and let me know what do you think?

Re: practise and play comfortably

well, it's an ok idea, but good old-fashioned playing on knee works fine. i don't really get headaches or muscle pains when i play - if you did, you must be playing kinda weird.

Amp for my Tele

At last I've saved enough to buy a new tube amp for my '52 reissue telecaster.My budget is around 1400$ max,and the wattage I need is not so high. I play country,rock,hard rock,worship,so I need a pure warm clean sound and a great sustaining distorsion too. I could try with a '65 reissue Deluxe Reverb(here in Italy it costs 950$),even if I saw that the second channel is a vibrato and not a drive channel,and I would need an additional pedal for distorsion. What do you say? Today I tried some amps in a guitar shop and was very well impressed by a Fender Prosonic and a Mesa-Boogie DC3,but if someone else can tell me even more about my amp search I'll be very happy and grateful. Luca

Re: Amp for my Tele

hey ever thought about a Vox AC30 TB I have one and I use a Tele wicked sound fat clean and beautiful warm dirty it has made me a very happy man give one a go

: I want to have the tabs for the afraid to shoot strangers solo´s and the be quick or be dead solo´s. can you help me???

You can find the tabs at www.powertabs.net however, you'll need the powertab software.
Also, another good software is GuitarTab Pro 4. The address is www.guitar-pro.com. There is a link "downloads" where you can find all the tabs.
Hope this helps.

iron maiden solo

I am a beginner and I'm learning the Iron Maiden's "The Trooper" solo. I can't get the right sound. I have an Ibanez Rg470, metalzone distortion and digitech RP200. Is it possible to get Iron Maiden sound with these stuff? Or do I need some other effect.
Can anyone help? Please.

Re: iron maiden solo

I have found that the only way a good maiden style sound can be achieved is with a strat style guitar played through an overdriven stack like a marshall or peavey. I have tried with similar type equipment and have only managed to get a good metallica / megadeth sound and it sucked at higher volumes. a 100 watt marshall stack should get close enough.

P.S. Having a seymour duncan hot rails pickup triples the chance of getting the sound.

Re: iron maiden solo

I am in a rock band and am learning the iron maiden no more lies solo and dont know what effects i need to get the right sound. I have a Epiphone les paul gothic, a zoom 505mk2 and a marshall valvestate amp. Please could some1 help me out.

modes

"when" do i use which mode? like...under what circumstances is a mixolydian scale used? phrygian? the rest?
thanks!
corbin

Re: modes

Thats kinda of a rhetorical question... basically modes are scales that aren't related to the key of the root, ie. a C Dorian is not in the key of C, here are how I use some (that I can think of right now):

Dorian - Heavy rock (ex: E Dorian over Em-D-A chord progression)
Phrygian - Fusion/funk (C Phrygian over Cm7-Dbmaj7 chords)
Lydian - Generally for minor keys
Ionian - I like with swing stuff
Aeolian - Metal
Mixolydian - I use/mix with major pentaonic

Well thats my 2 cents worth, there is alot of mode info on the web so search and you will find.
