a friend of mine had a hard time tuning a k-hon (can also be spelled that way if you want to)
Just a little heads up. Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails has made available a few songs which you could freely edit and remix using Garageband or Ableton.
I'm currently working on a remix of "The Hand That Feeds", incorporating my own guitar playing into the song. I'm using Garageband and Line 6's GearBox.

may nabibili bang individual saddles for electric guitar (strat model)?
yung 2nd string saddle ko kasi di ko ma-adjust yung action kasi may sira yung isang nut dun kaya di ko magamitan ng allen wrench...
plus, what do you call the rubbery thing next to the machine heads, where the strings are abeing aligned? yung bago mag 1st fret... gusto ko na kasing palitan yung akin... napapalitan ba yun?
As for the saddles, just about any music store carry both OEM and cheapo Chinese parts. J&B and Audiophile comes to mind.
^ thanks... yung about dun sa sirang screw sa may saddle, naayos ko na nababaan ko na yung action...
ni-lower ko yung action ko since nahihirapan ako minsan, plus lower action makes it easy for me to tap (and I'm using D'Addario .10s)
saan ba pwedeng magpaayos ng nut?
is it advisable to adjust the truss rod every now and then? how do I know if I need to adjust mine?
^^ the only problem I had was my fretboard building up some dirt... lolz
I bought a Bostin HM-1 pedal in JB M&S in SM Southmall...
it's heavy metal so that says it all.
just like all metal pedals I've used, dialing your ideal tone can take some time...
since like I said, like all metal analog pedals I've used, I had a hard time dialing in my ideal tone in Bostom HM-100
so I decided to go back to JB M&S in SM to have it replaced with a Boston DS-100 distortion pedal.
it sounds good and the tones really fit my playing style plus it's more flexible, not shrill, not too soft. Just right for some good ol' jams.
I seem to have a little problem...
I played with my pedal last night, while it's in clean mode, I turned all the knobs to max and I heard a slight distorted sound behind the clean sound of my guitar...
I went back to JB M&S again and tested it on their amp and guitar, and the weird sound isn't present
could it be my cable? my amp? or worse, my guitar?
Check your amp... I have an amp that has that same problem. Turned out to be a loose input jack.
some of my new recorded stuff... they are on imeem hehe
(to those who have imeem accounts )
my lame version of Master of Puppets lolz
the middle solo part of 'Puppets
Harmony test. composed of 3 guitar parts harmonizing together.
Rage of the Beast (I dunno why I named it like this for some reason lolz!)
tell me what you think! I'm getting a hang of this recording thing hehe...
@ermonski, I know you are a great guitarist im just curious, how do you know what chords to use when composing a song or maybe doing covers if there are no reference? Especially for guys who do not know how to read notes and just rely on songhits. can you recommend a good reference or a site to study chord progressions? can you go freestyle on a chord or definitely a chord progression pattern must be followed?Im not a good guitarist like you, im just curious on how it work. also in doing lead will it have to follow a certain note too to go along with the chord pattern? can we play lead freestyle or there is a rule in doing it? this also goes for people who only read tabs but dont know the notes.
what store is the official retailer of Gibson guitars here in the philippines?
when composing a song, I just let my hands do the work. When a good ri comes out, then I'll try to make a song structure out of it. It doesn't matter of you follow a certain chord pattern o something, well in my case ganun kasi when I compose my riffs it sounds either like heavy metal or thrash metal or hard rock. If it sounds good then it is good hehe. Some songs follow a minor chord progression, some follow a major chord progression, others follow a blues pattern, etc as long as it sounds good it is good. Look at Rivermaya's "214" for example, the verses of the song is in E major tapos pagdating sa chorus magiging G major yung key/progression. Again, as long as it sounds good, go for it, no speciic patterns needed.
When it comes to improvising a solo, what I normally do is learn the rhythm parts or listen to the chord progression of the song. Then I decide the scale I will use (the scales I always use are: major, minor, blues and Dorian mode). For the first few runs of improvising, I jsut fiddle around with the scales to see what melody/licksi can take out of it to make a solo, tapos ayun, onting fiddle pa until I get the solo I want to put on the song...
When doing covers, I listen to the song very intently. The challenging part is when I try to find the notes on the guitar, it is also a test If I can learn the song or not. Ang mahirap din kapag inaalam mo yung tuning na ginamit sa kanta. Ilang taon na rin kasi akong di gumagamit ng tabs so nasanay na rin ako sa pagkapa, it helps a lot on your ear training.
I hope you got my point hehe...
@heart4us: I really have no idea where to get Gibsons here. Try either sa may Pier (err tama ba? hehe) or sa Raon... I'm not sure since I always go to JB Music & Audiophile for my gutiar window shopping
