    I say let it keep on going. He'll be like the next TimeCube guy. Seriously, his discussions are some of the most entertaining that I've EVER encountered. These need to be saved so they're not forgotten. This is Wholenote History! Jake

    DEFINITELY. I've been here since 2000, and I've seen the same interviews, same articles, same hot lessons being recycled since. It's way overdue for some changes. We need an active webmaster or site manager or whatever you want to call it. Not...(more)

    I do agree with you when you say that guitarists have huge egos- 90% of us do, but I have to disagree with your Santana example. Carlos Santana claims that he recieves inspiration for his music from dead loved ones... He's also been known to tal...(more)

    Justin- Since most metal-tapping is done on the high E string, what I do is just mute the other 5 strings with my palm. I keep my right hand stretched out with the thumb-side of my palm resting against the strings I'm not using, and my middle fi...(more)

    I went on and got a Yamaha C-40 for only $40. I went to my local music shop and it was $220. Yossi- I started off as a metal guitarist, then became infatuated with classical. Growing your nails out is a must. Its a pain in the ass, but ...(more)

    LoL Thanks, Shesh. My biggest problem is bends. I don't bend notes the way I'm supposed to on the composer, I do it whacky-like. Good luck, Jake

    Okay, pretend that this is one of the strings on your composer. The P means PICK, the S means SLIDE,and the H means HOLD. These are all different buttons you can pick out of the top bar on the composer. ---------P-S------H------------ Bah, I dun...(more)

    I always thought a good Metallica solo is the one from The Unforgivin. It might take a little while to learn, but you learn a lot from playing it. For example, some of the techniques used in that solo are repeated in others, which gives you a he...(more)

    Yeah, I know what you mean when you say you want to learn some psychidellic stuff. It kinda sucks when I have all my friends over and we've got black lights blazin' and lava lamps goin' and all I can play is metal or classical. If I stumble acro...(more)

    This is what System of a Down does. Tune your whole guitar down 1 step. Now you have DGCFAD. Now drop the low D to a C, so you have CGCFAD. This is like playing in Drop D, but 1 step lower (Drop C?) It still allows you to play those three-string...(more)

    I can understand that at a wedding, a 15 year old kid won't be the center of attention, so Im not so worried about that. Actually, it'll be great cause I'll get paid to play, and if I mess up, no one will hear me because of all the bride's relat...(more)

    Hi all- One of my teachers saw me at the talent show and thought I did great, contrary to my belief. He is getting married soon, and wants me to play some "Soft, acoustic stuff" for his wedding while people are coming in and talking and stuff. ...(more)
