  1. www.ultimate-guitar.com hosts GP and PT files still.
  2. I know little about Queensryche, but they have their Operation: Mindcrime and Operation: Mindcrime II. The first is supposed to be better from what I've read. Wikipedia says: Operation: Mindcrime is Queensrÿche's third full-length album, which was released on May 3, 1988. It is a concept album about a man becoming disillusioned with American society, and joining in a conspiratorial plot to assassinate its corrupt leaders, with spoken dialogue between songs that advances the story and ties the songs together.
  3. I'd like to but in here and say that Tommy Emmanuel is amazing. His acoustic version of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" = WIN. That is all.
  4. Sounds like a harmonic overtone to me.. unavoidable at times.
  5. I had a Pod Pro (older version of the XT) until I just recently sold it due to lack of use. It definitely had some nice sounds by itself, but I liked to put it in front of my Marshall JMP and combine the tones. I'd have to suggest the Line 6 just based on the Pod I owned.. the newer models could only get better, right?
  6. I find it interesting that a girlfriend knows about a keylogger, heh.
  7. http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/12/26/ford.dead.ap/index.html They always go in threes.. last week was Joseph Barbera, yesterday was James Brown, now it's Gerald Ford.
  8. I bought a female friend a Keith Urban CD. That's all. My brother and I may be pitching in to buy my dad two tires.. some fucker slashed them last night.
  9. My copy of TP will arrive Monday.. yet I can't buy a Wii until later in the week.. :(
  10. That is true, after the stock Ibanez pickup anything from SD or EMG would be a great addition
  11. Hehe, EMGs are definitely fun pickups, glad to hear that you actually liked one The EMG 81 is definitely a metal pickup, and while some people think it can't sound good for blues and other non metal styles, many artists have proved that wrong. It's all up to you man, depends on how much of a hassle you want getting an EMG in your guitar. I still think a Duncan JB would be better, *shrugs*
  12. What type of music are you going to primarily be playing? EMGs are great pickups in their own right, but not for all styles of music. It's not too incredibly hard to wire them up with passives. Personally I prefer the EMG 85 in the bridge over the EMG 81. *edit* In order to correctly wire an active with a passive, you need to ideally have two volume pots, or sacrifice a tone pot and turn it into a volume pot. As for the Duncan.. I'd take the Duncan JB (SH-4) over the Distortion any day.
  13. Whatever you do decide, I suggest trying any amp out at a local Guitar Center. Here's some clips of a Valve King, btw - http://www.thegearpage.net/board/showthread.php?s=&threadid=104268 - It can sound heavy
  14. A really good amp within your budget is the Peavey Valveking. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Peavey-ValveKing-112-Combo-Amp?sku=481442 A 1x12 50w tube combo with some really nice features. The 2x12 100w combo is $580. If you already have a cab, the 100w head itself is $500.
  15. Depends on what kind of budget you have, what your main guitar is, and what style you're looking to play (which you listed as rock/metal).
  16. Honestly I'm wondering why you want to buy a distortion pedal when you have the Vox. That's what modeling amps are for, so you don't need pedals to sculpt the sound. Do you not like any of the tones the Vox has to offer? It may be better in the long run just to buy a new amp.. Nothing wrong with a Crybaby for a Wah, as Sixto said.
  17. Bright refers to highs. A Vox Valvetronix is a modeling amp.. it's probably not a good idea to run a unit such as the ME-50 on top of a modeling amp.. usually that's why you buy a modeling amp in the first place. If you want to use the ME-50 just as an effect then set your Vox to the overdrive/distortion you want. If you really do everything on the Vox, find a nice clean setting on it. Set all the controls (lows, mids, highs) on the ME-50 flat and just use the Vox controls. Combining both usually runs you into problems.
  18. Just run an RCA from the outs to the ins and set a program to record with the card. Obviously you won't be able to hear what's being played while recording, but that can be fixed by using a mixer along with it.
  19. Good deal.. can't wait for the new stuff.
  20. Since the t-shirt thread is locked, and you mentioned it in the writeup, I guess I'll mention it here.. Good choice with Starland for the shirts, Dave. I went there all the time as a kid back when I lived in Annandale. I haven't been there since probably 2000... old school indeed. Also, nice mix
  21. What does a violin have to do with this?
  22. No.. in this instance it's called vibrato.
  23. Vibrato is one of those things that can be done many ways. To build it up you just have to practice - find a way you like to do it, or mimic a favorite guitar player's technique. Start off practicing slower, and practice with all fingers. As you get it going slow, work up the speed at a decent pace. That's all the real advice I can think of to give.
  24. I use AVG and always have it updated and running.. there are no viruses.
  25. The only firewall I have, technically, is my router. I use the console version, I guess I can try downloading that again.. *edit* No go.. this is lame.
