  1. Hey, I remember how you were trying for a while to sell off your Laney to get another amp. I'm glad you found one you like so much.
  2. For me sitting by is a lie. Says MUSIC all over this place. Nuthin about recon debrief/ RnR. Everyone's got a right to an opinion, but along with some of the shredders who come across as speedy robots there are also many different players who can do a lot within the genre as well as in others. There are also those who feel bluesy rock musicians are all SRV or Hendrix wannabe's. There are those who fit the stereotypes, but there are also plenty who find their own identites and add elements from other genres to mix things up.
  3. Eh... Still the same blah rhythm. The beginning had somewhat more feel - still tacky and over decorated but at least you had time to savor those three dozen or so moments. Then the lesson section - totally vulgar. It's like cutting to a fap session from some hurried kissing. You shred guys make ONE point. You can do those things real fast. Unfortunately not one of you knows what the music is. Like I said you operate the guitar well. What's your point? Usually when someone complains about shred it's because either the shredding truly is kind of lame or the person can't shred and probably also plays with less feel and dynamics than who's being complained about. Because you're generalizing all shred in such a way, I'm going to assume the latter (and have little doubt about being correct). But he did ask what people thought. IMO the solo was fine but the sweeps a bit simple in comparison to many others posted on youtube. Thanks for posting, Niikbia, and good luck.
  4. Back when I got my '78 JMP it was already loaded with 6CA7's, and that's what I'm sticking with. Glad you dig 'em, too. :phil:
  5. I currently have a VH100R (basically the GH100L with a switchable clean channel) and a '78 JMP (basically the same as an early JCM800 2204) and think the Laney sounds somewhat Marshally and yet different. I like running a boost in front of each and think they're both great amps and probably would complement each other very well. I'm pretty sure Mastodon used to run that type of setup.
  6. Agreed. Sometimes a band...like (I think) Between The Buried and Me....really captures me.....until the cookie gurgling comes in...and I lose all interest. *FOR ME*...there's nothing musical or musically interesting about it at all. I get the feeling these bands often do it because they can't sing. :phil:
  7. I love heavy music, as always, but I can't get into growling vocals or lyrics that go along with a lot of that, and I get bored of music and bands with songs that have little dynamic difference and sound too similar. I can pop in almost any heavy disc and like it to some degree, but to keep listening to it there's got to be something different or very kickass about it. Get rid of Cookie (with a few exceptions) in favor of powerful vocals with a good dynamic range -- without sounding cheesy -- and a lot of that music suddenly sounds a lot more worth listening to IMO.

  9. Jack White pwns both In all honesty, I'd rather listen to a lot of '70s and '80s punk music than any of them.
  10. Before this turns into a {censored} fest between blues douche bags who prefer Vai because he has EMOSHUN and metal tards who prefer Malmsteen because HE SHREDS BREWSKI, I seriously wanted to shoot the {censored} with some of you here on who you think is better overall. I don't just mean technically. That being said, although I think Steve Vai is a little ahead as far as being a solo artist, I have to give it to Malmsteen. Sure, he's been repeating the same {censored} for decades but when Malmsteen hit the scene he did something no one else did and had such a huge impact on the world of guitar playing. What say you? I'm a major Uli Roth fan and definitely like Malmsteen a lot, but I think Uli already did with songs such as Sails of Charon and some of his post-Scorpions solo material what Malmsteen had done afterward though more oriented to shredding constantly. I could listen to Uli's music much more -- even with his horrid vocals on his solo material. I think Vai was maybe more creative when he first came out, though he also borrowed from Zappa. But I get burned out on his music fairly quickly, too -- just not as quickly as Yngwie's. In the right mood, I can listen to either a lot, though.
  11. Its not about what I think is it? Its a petition. People have been voting with their feet and bitching. I'm lust trying to do something positive. If it doesn't help then at least I tried. Thanks to the mods for re-opening my thread:) Truth. And petition signed, Rushtallica
  12. For a tone a bit warmer than the JC, depending on your budget you might end up really liking the Peavey Classic series or the Crate V30 or V32.
  13. This is my problem, too! My other problem is that I am unable to play slow. How 'bout medium speed?
