    Been a while

    Hey everyone! I was just going through my old email inbox and saw the "Happy Birthday" email from this site from a few months back. I know it's a bot but it's nice I still got one every year despite having not posted here in years. I used to post quite frequently. Think I stopped around the...

    Considering some DIY work

    Hi all, I'm thinking of doing some work on my guitar myself, and I'm mainly looking for thoughts/opinions/advice. The guitar is an Ibanez RGA121 Prestige, like this: The first thing is a repair job. I may be wrong on the terminology, but I believe there's a back-bow on the neck: basically...

    Guitar Input Problem

    Hi guys, long time no see! I'm having an issue with my RGA 121 Prestige at the moment. Whenever I plug the cable in all the way, there's no signal (well, there's the very faintest sound - barely audible below all the noise). When I pull the cable out a small bit, I get full signal. I've...

    Frequency Response Chart help?

    Right, I know the basics. X-Axis being Hz, Y-Axis being dB. Just curious as to why there would be two lines below 1kHz? It couldn't be a HPF :confused: Proximity effect? If so, Should it not say the distance?

    Few questions about capos

    I play acoustic guitar for some songs with the band, and I'm wonderin is there any capos out there (some kinda special design) that DON'T put the guitar slightly sharp? I can get away with it, but I myself notice the slight difference in pitch. IOW, if I have the guitar perfectly tuned with the...

    My new, NEW Axe!

    Picked this guitar up the other night. Ibanez RGA121 Prestige Mahogany. I'm in love! (Only thing different about my one is the lack of a tone control, which I rarely ever use anyway) Nice to have a guitar with a fixed bridge again. I can finally change tunings without having to get all...

    Weight Loss

    Wouldn't mind getting into shape and losin a few pounds. Kinda hard when my job/hobby (music) mainly involves sitting at a computer, mixing, or teaching, or standing for just a few hours a week at gigs and rehearsals. I've got bad eating and sleeping habits, which have enough of an impact on my...

    So I got my guitar set up...

    ...the one talked about in this thread. Sounds great. Intonation's done, no more fret buzz, even got a whammy bar fitted on (last one broke off :o) One problem though.

    What gauge strings?

    ...and why? Electric and/or acoustic. I find lower gauge can sound out of tune if fretted/strummed to hard, but they're easier to play. Just curious as to what gauge strings you guys use.

    "Antimalware Doctor" Virus

    This is the THIRD time I've come across this f**king thing. Anybody here had to deal with it before? It's stronger this time. It won't let me go online to download the files I need to get rid of it. Then it prevented me from viewing "My Computer", so I had to put download the files from the...

    Beat It Solo

    We're covering the MJ tune, and I've been landed with the solo... Jesus, it's a bastard to learn. I guess it's a good challenge, and it should improve my playing if I can get it together :) Any tips?

    TS Lead vs. Guitar Lead

    What's the difference? :confused: I usually plug my guitar into my MBox 2 with a guitar lead for Guitar Rig, and it works fine. I leave my amp at the bands rehearsal spot so I use this at home for practice. Today I left my guitar lead in the singers car, so I just grabbed a TS lead that I use...

    Band Name Ideas

    Didn't really know where else to put this... So I've just started a new band. 4 of us guys, and a female singer. We're struggling to find a good band name. Anybody have any interesting techniques for coming up with a name? Or even better, anybody giving out any names? :D

    Sampling & Synthesis

    I'm getting into doing a lot more electronic music these days, using a lot of synths and stuff. I want to start making my own sounds, as opposed to the presets however. From scratch even. I know the basics such as ADSR, cutoff etc., but is there anywhere I can learn about making patches from...
