  1. I was thinking more along the lines of posting your own backing track that you've recorded yourself vs. copyrighted recordings put out by the magazines... regardless of who originally wrote the tunes. Basically the copyright on the recordings, not the song writing credit. I'd check the copyright notice for the tracks from the magazines.
  2. I'd worry about posting copyrighted material.
  3. D'oh! This is old. Sorry, I didn't notice your EDIT: before now. I think you're saying 2 - 3 string ones from the left hand view perspective. Hmm... I see it more as the whole picture. So, I guess it is the finger rolly thing... if that makes sense....
  4. I'm using westhemann's post as a template I too describe myself as a hobbist. I have either assembled, modified, repaired or painted many personal guitars. I loved mixing and matching parts that didn't belong together . I have replaced the electronics (pick-ups/pots, etc.) on nearly all guitars I've ever owned. I have refretted guitars only twice and I have scalloped a total of three necks. I plan to make my first "from scratch" guitar(s) this year after accruing much info from this site over the past months I've been here. but in the mean time I've been having fun buying cheap guitars and fixing them up . I don't have any pics of my past work as I have sold most of them . As for sound clips... here's a video of my old band from about 1994, song is called Broken Glass (sorry, it's nearly 10 MB and you'll need Window Media Player version 9 to view it.) As of this post I am 37, semi-"retired" (meaning work is hard to come by ) computer programmer. I have a BS from OSU (Oregon, not Ohio ) and got about half way through a Master's before I realized that computers are evil . I am currently living in Westchester, NY (although I long to move back to the NW.) I have been playing guitar since I was 16. My family was also poor when we first moved to the USA but once my parents started a business, they put me to work starting at about age 9(?) so by the time I was 16, I went guitar crazy!!! I love headless guitar designs so my first and most probably subsequent "from scratch" guitars will be decapitated .
  5. Very nice MikeB! This is that same guitar with the pitch pine body?
  6. I think both... then there'll be another poll for the two winners of group 1 and group 2.
  7. that ain't a sweep acording to my finger Well, I recorded it to an mp3 here. I played it clean (w/o distortion) and slowly so you can hear the hammer-ons and pull-offs and the slide. Hopefully y'all can hear that it is done with sweep picking. Excuse the old man's sloppiness .
  8. Hmm... really? I double checked the tab just now. It's doable with sweeping (no alternate picking)... co-ordinating the hammers/pulls/slide with the sweep is the hard part .
  9. Oh, and yes, I agree with krazyderek, the 5 string variety is easiest .
  10. Um, no . I find the 6 string sweep more difficult. Try this: ^ h ^ ----- ^ h vS p v ------ v p v p e |-------------5-9-12-9---------------------| B |-----------5----------10------------------| G |---------6---------------9----------------| D |-------7-------------------11-------------| A |-----7------------------------12-7--------| E |-5-9-------------------------------9-5----|
  11. There's too much good info in this thread. Pin it please!
  12. Yes, great links! Pin this thread!!!
  13. Along with the monitors, some nice headphones are needed. My old pair of Sony MDR-V6 cans are still going strong even after 10 years of abuse . Let's spend all of westhemann's money!
  14. Ooooh... aaaaaah! Thanks for the link, GregP!
  15. Heh, you could probably hook it up to your truck stereo if there's a line-in Chevy Metal, dude!!! Ah, ok. Would you be voiding Dell's warrenty if you did that?
