  1. be sure that the power supply input is connected to the power supply input socket and not to the output where a daisy chain should power other pedals... had this once or twice when recableling my pedal board *facepalm* Ha ha, yeah i checked that, an I have done that before too Thanks for your time time guys, and the responses. Much appreciated
  2. Howdy! I got a pitch black, i bought it used about 6 -7 months ago, has worked perfectly from then, ....... until now I use the 9v power supply. Basically i plug it in activate the tuner, it lights up and works for a few seconds then does not respond to anything. Cables have been checked and are fine. Any ideas? If it's dead there's not much i can do, other than buy a new tuner.
  3. Here we go........... Disclaimer: Not Spam! Honest!!!!
  4. Apologies for bumping this old thread. Still trying to figure this one out. Any Jackson experts in the house? I'm leaning towards it being a 2000 MIJ DR3. Looking through the old catalogs it seems to be the year 2000 the 'satin chrome' hardware was introduced. What i am now trying to figure out is if it has a mahogany body? Reasons being that my old eyes are struggling to read the txt on the Jackson 2000 pdf scans, for the spec's it say's something about a mahogany body which would tie in with the crazy sustain that you get fro this thing unplugged perhaps?? Also I have pics now (unfortunately iphone pics) ill go get them uploaded here, and y'all can put the kettle on
  5. Thanks JonR, Looks like im not going to get away with my 'cheating' methods anymore, im actually gonna have to learn this stuff properly. Thanks a lot for taking the time to reply, im gonna take my time to look over your response, digest and internalise the info. Cheers!
  6. Hi guys, I hope someone can help me get my head round this. Seems i have always had a skewed view regarding this. Intervals within the natural major and natural minor scale: Basically you got 'Perfect' , 'maj/min', 'dim/aug' intervals yeah? Ive got it that Perfect are 1, 4, 5, 8, as they are the same distance from the tonic wether it's a major or minor scale. 3rd, 6th, 7th, intervals differ in distance depending on wether they are major or minor. Im cool with that. However im confused about the 2nd. It's always the same distance from the tonic wether it's major or minor, so why isn't it a Perfect interval? To me it can't be defined as major or minor as it is the same regardless of the scale it's from. The reason i ask is; im looking at building sus chords. I have always thought the two sus chords sus2 and sus4 are like 5th chords (intervals) there is no 3rd, 6th, or 7th, to determine thier quality (maj/min). So a sus2 or sus4 could work in place of either a Major or minor chord. Where am i going wrong here?
  7. Ok...but before I look them up, since the '90s isn't very reassuring, so you'll have to name 4 or 5 acts that were the previous 'best'. Best band of the 90s for me is jamiroquai without a doubt. At the time they were the best band I had heard since the 80s
  8. I like it, however i never have mine past 9oclock. Anything past that is just overkill if ya ask me. I like that it CAN go into overkill, i just can't find much use for those settings. I suppose if your into surf stuff, or recording ambient stuff, maybe..... That seems to be the way with all EHX stuff though, they are all capable of going to '11' or even '12' (- not o'clock, tufnel ref)
  9. Unfortunately i can't view or post vids from work. but y'all need to check out 'dirty loops' THE best band i've heard prob since the 90's! Swedish 3 piece Funk/Fusion/hip hop/jazz cover band. Unbelievable musicianship and SOUL! edit: oh yeah, there is no guitar in there tho - ot?
  10. Isn't he the guy who did the song Moondance? Nah, that's Van Helsing. Van halen is the guitarist with chickenfoot
  11. P.S. I doubt Spike is having bridge problems on seven guitars!
  12. Thanks Spike! You have just saved me the bother. I have often thought about switching from d'addarios to EBs, bcoz i heard good things about the slinkys. I like my d'addarios, i get the 3packs, good value for me. I dont break strings that often at all, maybe 3 or 4 in a year! Best strings ive used were the Fnder super bullets that came stock on my strat, they felt and sounded great for about 3months!!! I've bought super bullets since then, but they were not as good as the stock ones. Maybe they changed the recipe? How come strings only ever break at Gigs or rehearsals, or when someone else is with you, and never when just noodling at home on your own time?
  13. First and formost, my pops, whose been a musician for 35+ years and still kills it every time I go see them. Then from him I get my other influences: Jonh Lennon/Paul McCartney (songwriting) George Harrison (songwriting and guitar) And through my own accord: John Frusciante (guitar) and Yoshiaki Manabe (guitar) and I'd probably have to say Sawao Yamanaka (songwriting) as well. Fenderman, i hope you don't mind if i steal your post as a template? Just like Fenderman, First and formost, i picked up the guitar because of me old man, whose been a musician for prob about 45+ years. He dont play outside the house anymore, but he's still great at jazz chord melody:thu: Then from him I get my other influences: Stevie Wonder Steely Dan Beachboys And through my own accord: Extreme - Nuno Bettencourt Jamiroquai Average White Band Actually.........I better not get into this..........
  14. I dont think he is overrated at all, but i also think he is not the best guitarist in Aerosmith
  15. Im sure the Beatles used Vox ac30s no? Feel free to correct me
