    Guitars That Catch Your Eye

    I don’t think it fits my playing style, but I melt when I see these —they catch my eye, my heart and my d*ck 💕🤣
  2. It’s interesting to see how I try to do exactly the contrary with my HB-equipped guitars. I mean, the ones whose tones I like the most have *underwound* bridge pickups —either HB our HB-sized single coils. 😐 BTW, wasn’t tone in the fingers? 😏
  3. Thanks a zillion! Manlius are actually the real deal to me, but I sadly have at this very moment several spare pickups with no host guitar in the foreseeable future.

    I'm Not Worthy!!!!

    Of course you aren’t! You always end up either customizing... or selling. 😡🤣

    Bireli Lagrene

    Shish! Exactly the stuff I was into like... five years ago. Thanks for sharing!
  9. Several years ago, when I was trying to babble on this style (mostly as a rhythm player), Joscho Stephan was one of the players I listened to quite often. He shreds with (Gypsy) taste! BTW, I think his father accompanied him on rhythm guitar. How cool’s that?

    Saw Stryper Last Night

    Never was a fan, but not so long ago they released an album of covers titled “The Covering” and I enjoyed it big time. Solid as rock band!
  11. My best tips are these three ones —as I’ve done every shitty venue around here: 1- Don’t ever trust the venue’s monitors. I either mic my own combo or use a Y splitter to my own combo, and then I make sure my combo is next to me and that I can hear myself. 2- Get close to the drummer. Make sure you can hear and feel the beat, so you can always be locked to it. 3- Maintain visual contact with all the members of your band, so you can actually see what’s going on. Even if you cannot hear them all properly, their gestures and visual cues will keep you going. That’s pretty much it. PS: If you sing, the echo of the venue can be even more distracting. Ear monitors of your own might be a good solution. Need to learn to ignore the echo anyway though.
  12. Dean, Hoyer and, to a lesser extent, Gibson
