Re: TOMMY BOLIN

Tommy Bolin was a gifted individual who like the many others we've lost before, Hendrix, Morrision, Joplin, et. al. are so far ahead of their time, and are so sorely misunderstood they seek solace in escape, the same way the man who cheats on his wife seeks solace in alcohol, etc...we're only human, and if you had to deal with the pressures they had, you might do the same thing. So why don't we stop and think before we judge another persons character.

Re: TOMMY BOLIN....You're kidding....aren't you??

Tommy Bolin was from Avondale Colorado and his best work was with Zypher, fronted by a very dynamic female vocalist named Candie Givens, who also ODed. A great guitarist/songwriter, arguably the best.

Cleaning bass guitar string

I cant afford to keep buying the fluids, does anyone know other ways of cleaning bass strings.

Re: Cleaning bass guitar string

I find that dropping the bass strings in boiling water for a few minutes makes them clean and bright again so they sound like new. I actually heard that Sting did this so I tried it, works great.

The best cheap way to sound like SLASH

DOD death metal distortion pedal with low and mid set a little over half and high wherever you want. play a guitar with humbukers preferably Duncan Design of any metal guitar (I play a Jackson) and set pick up switch to the front you can also through in a Q series cry baby but you lose sustain
This is the best way I know and nobody can tell the difference

Re: The best cheap way to sound like SLASH

the best cheap way to get the sound like me, is to buy a ( around 69$ ) blues-pedal, and an overdrive/distortion pedal.. kick the distortion or overdrive to the max, and play alittle wth the blues pedal while listening to som old G n' R music.. ul find the perfect sound..

Restringing an Epihphone Sherraton II electric guitar

I recently purchased an Epiphone Sherarton II jazz style guitar and as it being my first electric guitar I was wondering if anyone had any pointers on the best way to restring it. It looks like you can either slide the strings directly out of the back of the bridge plate or take the bridge plate off. I don't want to have to remove parts if it is not necessary. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Guitars

I want to get an electrical guitar, but i dont know which kind to get. Id like a Wolfgang or a Fender Stratocaster, but will someone please tell me the best kinds out there?

Re: Best Guitars

hmmmm...there is no such thing as the best guitar, there are lots of things that make a guitar better for the person who plays it.it depends on what kind of music you like and what sound your going for,what your style is.if your just starting your probly going to get a beginners guitar(which might not be the greatest guitar)but they work.you can get a good ibanez for about 300 or a squier for less than 100 but you will just have to go to you nearst music store(dont be embarresed)and pick up a few guitars plug em in and fuck around with them,see if you like the way certin guitars sound and how they feel on you...that is the only way you wiil find a guitars that is good for you.

any kramer before 1984 was most likely top of the line if the paint job is original. these were actually the better constructed kramers before they sold out and started making them in taiwan or korea

i'm new

Hi, everybody... This seems to be a very well-visited forum... Am I right???

You are wrong...

This site sucks and is nothing more than a popup advertising gimmick, there is no content here at all, looks like 90% of posts go unanswered, and almost all the answers are vulgur crap anyways. GoTo to wholenote.com, you'll find it much better than this hole.

Not At All

There's only like 10 people here that give good advice, the others just talk shit and **** around, plus bob was dead on, its a waste posting anything here cuz no one ever answers your post....

And the pop ups are like every min, since they like advertising so much, i'll do a little of my own....
Go to Ultimate-guitar.com, its way better and the forums will help you more.

Re: Not At All

No - no one ever answers posts just the way you didn't :)

Guitar Pro4 WAV exporting

GP4 claims to have a WAV exporting feature, but everytime i try to export a song to WAV format, the audio file comes completely empty.

I tried changing each and every of my midi setups, but none of them seemed to work ok to be rendered to WAV.

And i can't use wingroove, 'cuz my soundboard's midi quality is way better. The ideal for me is to export instrument by instrument to WAV with GP4, and yet, i can't do it.

What should i do?
