  1. Haven't posted here in a while, but saving for house = liquidating guitar gear. Enjoy the deals while they last. Automagic Wah pedal. Basically everything you can want in a wah pedal. Touch activation, true bypass, tone controls, shape filters, battery or DC powered, and more. Imported straight from Germany. If I remember correctly it needs a new pot, but that shouldn't be a problem. Bought it for $325 + shipping. Selling for $165 shipped. Axess Electronics GRX4. MIDI switchable effects loop. Have up to four true-bypassable effects loops that you can switch in or out in any combination with just one press of a button. Great for all you pedal geeks who can't afford to do the riverdance during a gig to switch everything in or out. Bought for $225 + s/h, almost new and will sell for $115 shipped. Ernie Ball Volume pedal. Not much to write about on this one. Everything works perfectly, pedal is almost new save for some adhesive residue on the foot treadle. Bought for well over $100, will sell for $60 shipped. Custom made gigging pedal board. This thing is awesome. Velcro-compatible carpeting, two levels, aluminum trim, professionally made. It comes with its own Road-Ready type case to protect your valuable pedals from damage. Bought for $350, willing to sell for $165. (volume pedal is shown for size reference only and is not included with the price) All prices OBO. I also have more pics of everything if you're interested. PM me.
  2. $$ New Price 5/21/06 $$ Haven't posted here in a while, but saving for house = sell of gear. Don't pass this deal up. Sequis Motherload- speaker emulator, direct-input recording device, and attenuator. This is similar to the Palmer speaker sims except better. In a blind test over on Monster Rack the Motherload outperformed the Palmer (considered the holy grail of sims) recording distortion, and absolutley blew it out of the water at recording cleans. It also has a built in attenuator unlike the Palmer, so you don't have to go rig up a load box. This thing is AWESOME for people looking to record at home or in an appartment and still get professional results. Bought it for $850, willing to sell for $500 shipped. Don't pass this deal up because you wont find another one like it. PM for more pics/info.

  5. For Sale: Sequis Motherload Attenuator/Cab Sim/Direct Box Bought it brand new about a year ago for $850. For those of you who haven't heard of it, it's (at least last time I was in the market) the best cab sim out there. There were some clips up on monster rack a while ago with this versus an original palmer. For distorted tones, the motherload won, but the palmer was decent as well. For clean tones the motherload completly dismantled the Palmer however. It also includes an attenuator so you don't need to fab up any load boxes, or ruin a speaker by cutting it just so you can get rid of the exess energy. Unit was used only 2-3 times, and then stored away when I went to college. Guitars aren't my thing any more, so I'm selling everything but my amp and one guitar to purchase go-fast goodies for my car. The front and rear are immaculate. The unit was never mounted in a rack, but there are 3-4 scratches and some chips in the paint to be found on the top and bottom. I highly recommend that anyone that's in the market for an attenuator, or cab sim check this out as it's the best in the out there. Just check any reviews you can find. Asking $600 shipped, that's almost a third less than I bought it for. Pics available. PM me.
  6. Originally posted by Poparad You should definately swtich over to the metronome giving you the pulse in quarter notes, rather than pulsing for every single sixteenth. When you get anywhere near the standard tempo for this song, you'll never be able to keep on the constant clicking. It will probably also be easier to follow the metronome at any tempo this way, because you only have to listen every 4 notes for a click to line up to, rather than worry about listening every note for the click. that's a good point, I never thought about that.
  7. I've been working on "the Flight of the Bumblebee" for a while now, trying to get it down. So far I've been working with a metronome, starting off at 80bpm, and increasing 2bpm until my wrist gets numb (by the way, I do 1 beat = 1 note, not 1 beat = 4 notes). Around 165, I start having trouble, not because the actual speed is so difficult, but because it's hard for me to divide my brain between listening for the beat, and playing on top of it. Today I decided to "let go" and instead of trying to go fret... pick... fret... pick as fast I could, I just let both hands do their own thing as fast as they could. One hand just tremolo picked, and the other one moved, no syncronization between the two. I have to admit I was surprised, it actually sounded like the song, unlike when I did the fret...pick thing. My question is, is this bad? Do I need to continue robotically using the metronome until it's at 480bpm, or am I at a point now where I just have to let it all hang out?
  8. Originally posted by bobthemerciful Far as I can remember, he played it just sliding down one string. Just practice it slowly and you'll get it. Love that track! Funny as hell (in fact the whole album is!!) Great live also!!!!! :D I haven't actually heard the real song, I'm just going by the tab. I also have the Troy Stetina version but this one sounds I think a little better. Not more accurate, but it has it's own unique flavor.
  9. Originally posted by Xerxes Maybe five, but I've never seen eight, not even on Flight of The Bumblebee. that's funny, because that's what the song is. Well actually it's Manowar's Sting of the Bumblebee, but nevertheless...
  10. There's (fast) descending run on one of the songs I'm tring to learn. It has other parts to it, but I'm specifically looking at this part 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1-0 ---------------------- ---------------------- ---------------------- ---------------------- ---------------------- So far I've just been sliding my finger down one fret at a time, playing each note that way. While I can do this easily practicing slowly, I'm worried that I won't be able to get very fast doing this, sort of like how the people who pick at the computer keyboard with only two fingers start out fast, but quickly fall far behind those who use all 10. How would you guys play this? So far, I think I have 3 options- 1) Do like I've been doing (slide 1 fret down each time) and practice my ass off 2) Move my hand down in big chunks and use all 4 fingers 3) Chicken out and transpose it into a more vertical run as opposed to horizontal Any opinions?
  11. Originally posted by stephjeff There are a lot of transcriptions of Eruption and if you compare them all, they are all different, very different. I have quite a few of them. Steve Vai's is very off. The latest Guitar World had a lesson type thing on Eruption about a year ago or so. They had some parts very accurate but a couple parts were really off. Everybody seems to get the whole speed pick/pulloff thing wrong. It's right before the right hand hammer cadenza. I can relate to this post because I've played guitar since I was in sixth grade (I'm 36 now). That piece was why I started. I thought I learned it perfectly years ago, but kept putting little clues together over the years to get the puzzle and disgarding all these transcriptions. For years I was pissed that I could not get the phrasing to sound right on certain parts, though I was doing it exactly as the transcription showed. I finally figured out that it was wrong and figured those parts our for myself the right way. I have seen very few people play the piece correctly. Try to find a good rock teacher to help you, find all the tabs you can, and study and compare them. What I did is learn the notes (not the tab) and study EVH's techniques to figure out how he was playing the notes. Anyhow, you kinda learn how he picks certain things, always using certain approaches and you start to figure out his finger patterns. I did that with Mean Street intro as well. That took so long to figure out! The transcription I have was in Guitar for the Practicing Musician. It's so horribly wrong. Don't trust transcriptions! Also, get some bootleg vids, from the old days and you can piece together a lot of this stuff. Good luck, that piece is like a dictionary of licks for rock guitar. It's an awesome piece! any chance you'd want to post your transcription?
  12. I'm having trouble with my bends. If I'm doing a bend with a single finger, I'm fine. However, when I use multiple fingers for added strenght, I start to "snowplow". Basically when I bend up my fingers slip under the other strings and they end up on top of my knuckles. What am I doing wrong? I don't think its the action because I still do it on my really low action guitar. I'm self taught so I've never had anyone to show me how to bend "properly". Thanks.
  13. Does anyone have tabs of any christmas songs? I'm not looking for strumming songs, but solo pieces a la Trans-Siberian Orchestro or similar group. I've looked all over, but all the tabs I've found are all strumming. I need to peices to do at an upcoming christmas event. Thanks.
  14. this might not have to do with riffs, but one thing I've noticed is that it's better (for me atleast) not to move your whole foot up and down like you were tapping your foot, but to actually rock your body while keeping your foot somewhat stiff. This keeps me in the "middle third" StratKat was talking about. That's the sweet spot on my wah and everything I play there sounds better. It's hard to explain, but once you do it a couple times it becomes really easy.
