My Musical Knowledge

Instruments I Play:

My Approach to Learning and Playing:

I pretty much just suss out the rhythm by ear, and then improvise the leads.
My Musical Education:

I took lessons for about six monthes, only thing I came out of that with was the Blues/Minor Pentatonic Scales, so I guess I´m 99% self-taught.

Ace Frehley
Glen Tipton & K.K. Downing
Kirk Hammett & James Hetfield
Ted Nugent

My Learning Resources:

My ear, IMO tabs are for suckers...

Great guitar, - the fact that its not floyd equipped. EMGs are nice.
Make: Behringer

About to be replaced by a Randall Solid-State half-stack. Good amp I guess, kinda of complex, and I don´t much like digital effects.
Effects Pedal
Make: Line 6
Model: Uber Metal
Year Acqired:

An ok pedal, for digital. I´m stuck between what I have and what I want right now.
Effects Pedal
Make: Jim Dunlop
Model: Crybaby From Hell Wah
Year Acqired:

Damn awesome, wah pedal, fine tuning and variable Q with the fasel gives you a pretty big assortment of sounds to choose from. Plus it´s got Dime´s name on it, so it can´t be half bad.
Effects Pedal
Make: Jim Dunlop
Model: MXR 10-Band EQ
Year Acqired:
Price Paid:
Now thats what I like, a solid, band specific, high-gain signal headed for collision with the front end of my amp. Can´t beat it IMO.
Electric Guitar

Price Paid:
$ 825.00
Mind-blowing instrument, the only thing that truly feels like an extension of my body, other than the actual extensions of my body. This guitar is hotter than hell, packin´ a BL L500XL in the Bridge and a SD Distortion Bridge Model in the Neck. Complete with Floyd.

Hi Black_Shuriken,

I noticed from your profile that for some reason I forgot to list Dean Guitars on the Instrument list. Sorry about that I've add them.

Welcome to GKN,
