    Ok, but I'm not interested in rebuilding effects, but building my own from scratch. Here's a site with schematics for guitar effects, check it out.

    I'm interested in building my own effect pedals, just for fun. I saw a home-made screamer box once, and I thought the whole idea of building your own pedals was awesome. I've got the soldering knowledge and some schematics off the internet. I ju...(more)

    You haven't specified what kinds of recordings you want to do, but my recommendation is to get a cheap version of Cubase. The software often comes together with semi-professional soundcards or MIDI keyboards. Cubase SE is a really nice program...(more)

    It's so unbelievable, sad and needless. What's wrong with the world? Hard rock fans all over the world has lost an important role model. My condolences to his close mourners. R.I.P. "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott (1966-2004)

    Hi Aja! My interview was yesterday, and I think I did good =) A ten hour trip from home for 30 mins of interviewing and an hour-long tour of the campus, but it was worth it. It seems to be a nice school, and the studio is available 24-7! I c...(more)

    I'm trying to figure that out too... I know it's the member's "own" symbols; the feather is Robert Plant's, "Zoso" is Jimmy Page's, the three circles is for John Bonham and the fourth symbol is John Paul Jones'. I have no idea what they mean, ...(more)

    Who do you think would win a speed contest between Stratovarius' & Symphony X's guitarists, Yngwie and Paul Gilbert?

    Maybe he switches between the two scales? I think you're right on target, pal. Thanx! //Alex

    Yeah, that could be it, but as far as I know he adds a lot of tones to the A minor scale. I think Malcolm Howley has a point in his post. Thanx anyway.

    Yep, but I'd still like to know the name of the scale. It would help a lot. Alex

    I've been frantic trying to figure out what scales Santana is using to get his special "sound", and the song "Smooth" in particular. The song goes in Am, F, E mainly, and the pentatonic minor isn't right, neither is the gypsy scale or "spanish...(more)

    Same here, Angela. Sometimes my motivation is really low and I don't touch my guitar for a week, and then I just pick it up and start improvising, and it's a great feeling when the motivation for playing fills up again. As you said, it's a rol...(more)

    Yeah, I wonder what the number would be if we filtered out all the inactive people...
