Musicians Only Thread (No Drummers Allowed!)



Talk about your equipment here! Guitars, bass, Keyboards, Washboard, Spoons, Hollowed out gourds, etc! Trade horror stories from gigs! Talk about your favorite groupies! Maybe even post a tab...? Offer/Ask for tips for certain songs.

I'll get this started. I own:
Strat knockoff
BC Rich Warlock
Ovation Celebrity Acoustic
Gibson SG

10 Watt Crate Amp (came with the Strat lol)
Dimebag Distortion pedal
Dunlop Wah
Other stuff that I'll post later

currently trying to pick the axe back up. My alternate picking took a big hit in the three years of not practicing. Sweep picking (what little there was to begin with) is gone. Rhythm is barely there. And yet I can still crank out practically all the Sabbath tunes from memory.

Black Sabbath

Also, Guitar players, don't forget to post self taken pictures of yourself posing in front of the mirror with no shirt on (flash bulb reflection is a must)!

Children of Bodom and Iron Maiden are two of my favorite bands. Awhile back I was trying to get through Phantom of the opera.

The COB guitarist Alexei Laiho had a column in guitar world for awhile, as did one of my favorites, Zakk Wylde.

I moved to Austin a few years ago with just a Strat and a Jazz bass. I picked up a killer Warwick bass last year. Have a Hartke head with Ashdown cabs. Was wanting a Jeff Beck strat but have since switched to wanting a Les Paul instead. Through a Mesa/Boogie Lone Star Special which I don't have enough money to buy right now.

If you guys are looking for a sweet delay the H & K "Replex" is really nice. I try to keep things scaled down. I have a TC Electronic Chorus that sounds great but I don't use it much. I'm just trying to write a great song...not having much luck so far.

Warwicks are nice basses...love the growl they have. Owned an early 90s Harkte 410xl but sold a couple of years ago (was backup anyways)

TC Electronics are nice and expensive...always wanted to try one. Most expensive pedal I have is a Pigtronix envelope filter...and of course I have the best bass distortion pedal...sans amp bass driver.

Takime beater acoustic/electric

sad to say i STILL have my Inabez 570 roadster - sweet guitar back when hairspray, makeup & glitter were what made a rock band

my music has taken a backseat over the last few years though, and my playing has suffered for it... so thanks for opening an old wound with this thread

you guys and your inferiority complexes. just cause we drummers are infinitely cooler than any other musician doesn't mean you should shun us. you should embrace us, and thereby increase your own coolness.

Have you tried any Eden stuff? My stuff isn't too bad to drag around but I've heard the small Eden combos are great.

I saw on your myspace page that you guys did a tour...how'd it go? I'm working at making that happen myself.

dino (and anyone else who has an opinion), who makes the best acoustic these days? i'm looking to replace my old acoustic (the bridge cracked, so now i finally have an excuse). i'm kinda gotten the impression martins and taylors aren't what they used to be, but i need to do some market research. any thoughts?
