  • Pantera Rig Rundown with Rex Brown and Zakk Wylde
    by Chris Kies on February 28, 2024 at 10:13 pm

    The original Cowboys from Hell bassist reclaims his spine-rattling position as the band’s charging piston, while his guitar brother brings his fleet of Wylde Audio gear and a few tone sweeteners from Dimebag Darrell’s private stash.The ’90s was a very peculiar musical decade. It entered with L.A.’s party-time hair metal and concluded with the rise of Nu metal, boy bands, and the real Slim Shady. In between those bookends saw the maturation of Metallica, a cold front moved in from the […]

  • A Fine-Tuned Signature Guitar for a Jazz Great
    by Joel Handley on February 27, 2024 at 8:18 pm

    A giant of mid-century jazz guitar, Johnny Smith had a fastidious style. He could strike rapid solos, embellish ballads with languid lines, and craft complex chords. Whatever he played, his intention and articulation were crystal clear. Smith’s music is “incredibly intricate and detailed, every note he played, there was nothing extra there. It’s just the essential thing,”—or so said the modern great Bill Frisell, when Reverb interviewed him and Mary Halvorson in 2018 around their […]

  • Opinions on Wide Range Humbuckers?
    by /u/volalala on February 29, 2024 at 2:26 am

    Hi all, Recently bought a 72′ reissue wide-range humbucker from Reverb for a build I am currently working on. To be entirely honest, I didn’t do way too much research on it beforehand and just got one because I’m a big Sonic Youth fan. I’ve found kinda conflicting info on whether they’re good for gain/dist etc. which is important to me. Can I get some advice/knowledge here? Thanks. submitted by /u/volalala [link] [comments]

  • Skills to learn before learning Metallica Black album
    by /u/Illustrious-Dog-4373 on February 29, 2024 at 2:25 am

    YouTube links for skills very welcome. I’ve “played guitar for 8 years”. Horrible self motivation has left me being a noob still. I’ve heard metallica is a good start for electric and metal. It’s been on my bucket list to learn this album for most of that time. I’m going to do it submitted by /u/Illustrious-Dog-4373 [link] [comments]

  • [NEWBIE] Any advice on getting better at strumming patterns?
    by /u/shreddyshreddyguitar on February 29, 2024 at 1:58 am

    I started on bass and when I moved to guitar I riff a lot of single lines or just thrash metal downstroke stuff. BUT I’m trying hard to learn pretty stuff. For some reason I have a mental hurdle with strumming patterns. It’s basically just practice isn’t it? Is there some trick? Should I be counting in my mind? I tend to just blank out and play intuitively. So like rigid strumming patterns seem hard. Which makes no sense because I do way more complicated shit while picking. submitted by /u/shreddyshreddyguitar [link] [comments]

  • I feel like I make music like an AI and lack creativity.
    by /u/AmIajerk1625 on February 29, 2024 at 1:46 am

    I guess what I mean is when I’m coming up with a song I feel like I just combine aspects of songs other people have already made. It’s a conscious thought of “Oh let me try taking the strumming pattern from this song and use it with chords mashed together from these 2 other songs.” I know there’s countless songs with chords like C, Am, Em, and you’re unlikely to make something truly new that hasn’t been done before. But I just feel like I have no creativity, I can only imitate. I use patterns from other songs I’ve learned and use chords from other songs I’ve learned. I don’t know it’s just kind of a weird feeling and I never feel good enough. Anyone else get what I’m saying or feel the same? submitted by /u/AmIajerk1625 [link] [comments]
