    Hearing Loss

    Hey TGPers! I finally dragged my a$$ into the ENT to get my ear pressure issues looked at. For the last couple of years (at least, maybe 5yrs...) I'm 48 & I have felt intermittent pressure on one ear drum along with sensitivity to low/mid frequencies. Metrallica's chug chug riffs started to...

    overdubs on live albums

    Ozzy & Randy Tribute, came from a King Biscuit live broadcast, I heard it in the days before 1's & 0's. The release sounded better than the broadcast. Def some widening and eq, nit sure what else though.

    Does George Martin really deserve the title of 'fifth Beatle?'

    I always thought of him as Uncle Beatle. Don't think he fared financially well enough at all, he may also qualified as the most screwed over almost-Beatle.

    Hartley Peavey sends his COO undercover

    I think Cortland is probably a better step-son than COO.

    Hartley Peavey sends his COO undercover

    What I can't get over is how disconnected the family/management seems to be. Looks like the PV family checked out a long time ago. I can't understand why a smallish company of 300 employees did not know the COO. I've worked in manufacturing at that scale (cabinet manufacturer w/ 250 employees)...

    Plugging in Zakk Wylde EMG 81/85 to schecter guitar?

    If they are active EMG'S with the connector in there already, then yes, just pop them out and reattach the new pups into the four pin connector. Great flexibility with the EMG's that way. ==>MODS, MOVE TO LUTHIER SECTION?

    Help me identity this piece of classical music from my only rather vague description

    If it was BBC, you can probably narrow it down to the program, and maybe even the episode. If listening in the US, try contacting the station you listen to. If you were listening in the UK, might it have been Andrew Manze on BBC3? Look on the web for BBC Programs that ran in 2008-2009, and your...

    What's more important, guitar or amp?

    I know this: I played a great guitar--Fender Am St through a BOSS Heavy Metal pedal --> Fender Sidekick 8in speaker for two years in High School and college. When I plugged into a Marshall 900 dr for the first time, my gf (now wife) said, "Ohhh, that's what you sound like. Buy it, the little amp...

    Reading the Joe Perry Rocks book...

    AVOID THE AUDIOBOOK. I am struggling to get through it. He is reading his own book, and I thought it might be good. Wrong! I could read his story better. His read is monotone, has no inflection, humor, or even a chuckle at the funny bits. Hawking's computer voice is more evocative.

    Audley Freed - Cool amp trick on stage

    Didn't SRV use plexi or cardboard in front of amps to cut some highs/volumr/?? in his live rig. Read that somewhere.

    To die for tone in Reese's commercial

    In Canada, it's just Reese. No " 's ". It was odd, like a parallel universe (or country) or something.

    Hair metal "technique" question...(Whitesnake content)

    That's a cello or a double bass. My guess is a cello. It would have been cool to have a real string player with a dipped swirl painted cello playing with Vai on that tour.
