    It's a sloppy cover lol, but pls rate/10

    No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.

    I don't blame you, it's a great piece of gear and looks like a lot of top musicians are using it. I would buy one too if I had the money. It'd be either an Axe FX or a Kemper, especially for recording. But for now I gotta stick with what I got, a PodHD500x haha.

    Fooled around with the axe for a couple of hours. Didn’t have time to make any new sounds, but damn, a lot of the presets sound like dog chit. Way too much treble.

    Yeah, I'd say Andy is best known for his solo work.

    And Angra was my first favorite band. It made me real sad when Andre Matos passed away :/

    What monitors are you using? Those presets would be dialed in for a flat response so anything else might require some tweaking.

    I'm using Yamaha HS8s which are very honest and on the Two Notes I've got the EQ cutting some 6kHz otherwise it sounds too bright.

    ran it through a tube power amp and 2x12, but also used some grado headphones

    I really have to dig in and do some eq work

    I'm excited to spend hours this weekend, but I'm also feeling a bit overwhelmed

    Hired a new guy at work not long ago and he came in wearing a fender hoodie so I had to chat him up about guitars.
    Messes around making his own pedals so he lent me a couple fuzz pedals he made to demo the weekend.

    Y’know, John Frusciante ****ing sucks at guitar. Tired of hearing people claim he’s so good. The dude does a ****ty jimi impression and plays the same bull**** pentatonic licks over and over.
    He’s a hack and can’t play for **** compared to the pepper’s rhythm section.
    Even Dave Navarro was better than that overrated dud.

    Jimi hendrix is literally John Frusciante's idol, dude. And John doesn't suck.

    He was in the RHCP when he was like 18, and he composed Under the Bridge when he was 20. He's not a fuking shred-god obviously, but he doesn't claim to be. He wrote tons of tasty riffs for RHCP. One of the best rock guitarists in my book.

    You sound like the kinda guy who thinks faster = better.

    David Gilmour is my favorite guitarist.
    And it's clear that Jimi is Frusciante's idol since all he does is a crappy hack version of Jimi. He even lifted part of the main Purple Haze lick and shoved it into one of the pepper's songs all proudly like he came up with it. F*ck that guy.
    And f*ck Under the Bridge while we're at it, that beginning little clean part is okay but, again, that song is way overrrated. Except for the bass part. Flea is the guy to pay attention to in that band, not Frusciante.

    It's a good thing he's not a shredder because he'd suck at that too.

    Literally every guitarist has ripped off Jimi hendrix at one point.

    I guess you just don't like RHCP. And yea, Under the Bridge is brilliant. It's literally just two basic major chords yet it's so special the way he plays it.

    Frusciante is a beast. Got 10 minutes to kill? I know you do.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mh9Q6mxFdg

    John Frusciante is my favorite member of the band. He joined so young and then was caught up in all the fame and basically couldn't take it, and quit right before a huge set. He didn't want money or fame. He feels raw as an artist and I respect that.

    I guess you just don't like RHCP. And yea, Under the Bridge is brilliant. It's literally just two basic major chords yet it's so special the way he plays it.

    Frusciante is a beast. Got 10 minutes to kill? I know you do.

    That's 10 minutes of my life that have been irreparably damaged forever by watching that video. He reminds me of joachin phoenix in the Joker before he becomes the Joker.
    I like RHCP, I just try to selectively ignore the parts of the songs that Frusciante is "contributing" to.
    He quit because his drug-addled mind made it impossible for him to determine what sounds good and bad on the guitar.
    Yeah he feels raw like someone who just picked up a guitar a couple months ago.

    Finally got my axe hooked up to my first ever set of studio monitors, starting to figure out how to get good tones, but it’s quite the learning curve. You can change anything.

    On the other hand, listening to music through studio monitors is f**king mind blowing. I’m hearing details in songs I didn’t even know were there. I sat listening to random songs for a hour before playing a note yesterday

    Which studio monitors did you settle on?

    When I first got mine I listened to Thomas Newman's score in The Shawshank Redemption as the bus enters the prison. Sounded like the double bass was in the room rattling the walls.

    Went conservative with the size, since my desk isn’t huge, but they’re huge sounding

    I didn’t even get into movie soundtracks yet, I’m doing that after my morning workout; fantastic idea

    If you still haven't, go to axe change and download a bunch of presets, most are bull**** but some are really well made with intricate chains that you can use to learn how to build your own tones.. You can also find a bunch of free cabs online but I only heard good things about professionally made IRs from guys like ML sound lab and they're not that expensive.. But obviously only worry about that after a few months of learning that chit.

    Yeah, I was burned out on guitar myself for quite a bit. But I've been getting the bug again. Better get that home-gym going, mang.

    Here's a video of me trying to work on my tone at decent speeds.

    Nearly got caught out there since every meathead and his dog is buying up bars and plates. Luckily I ordered some stuff the night before the gyms got corona'd,

    Even bought a 2" thick bar no one wanted which has the added benefit of blasting the forearms. When this lockdown life comes to an end I'll come out of hibernation with popeye arms like I've been fapping 24/7.

    Nice. You always remind me how I need to work on technique. Back in the day I used a metronome for a while to work on alternate picking speed and felt like I hit the wall and couldn't go any faster with only the wrist. Now that we're all trapped it might be time to knuckle down again and treat guitar like lifting weights training bursts of speed with a metronome and bumping it up a notch each week.

    2" thick bar? Nice. Gonna need roasted maple necks in a few months to withstand the sheer pressure you'll exert on the wood with your beefy hands. Yeah, I'm super glad I have home equipment, especially my Rogue squat stand, as local gyms are all gonna go belly up.

    There always seems to be room for improvement in one way or another in terms of wrist mobility and tone production. I've actually also started focusing on combining wrist + forearm movements, ala Stephen Taranto's style, and I've found some decent footing on the technique. The key there seems to be on making sure the wrist isn't locked when combining the movement, which tends to feel counter-intuitive at first.

    I feel that this is not an easy thing to teach others. I had to learn how to sing and play somewhat complex rhythm parts for a band I was in years ago and it was not something I found initially intuitive but it's kinda similar to learning how to play drums.
    I would recommend starting off with simple songs first, both in terms of the guitar parts and the vocals.
    Also, slow the songs down and figure how the words fit rhythmically over the guitar part by the syllables.

    Come As You Are, by Nirvana, is a good song to learn how to sing and play at the same time, imo. The guitar part is very specific as are are the vocal parts.

    I thought I'd never be able to do it, but I can actually manage some songs after some focused practice.

    What I do is that I get the guitar part mechanically perfect so I don't need to think about it, then I slowly start inserting vocals on a section-to-section basis. Hardest part is coordinating the two but if your muscles already know what to do it's a lot easier to fix mistakes.
    Go Canucks Go!
