    Steely Dan's "Old School"...the perfect guitar solo(s)?

    My favorite, too. Second solo in particular.

    Why do mixers have limited XLR inputs?

    Keyboards, acoustic guitars with onboard preamps, anything that doesn't require a preamp. It costs them more to include more preamps. Some boards skimp on the EQ on those channels too, mostly because they figure whatever peolpe plug into them probably has an eq or at least a tone control. If...

    K&K over Fishman installs

    I'm wipin up what you're spillin, but I love my guitars. I have four of em set up that way, and am considering doing all of them. I'd lose my ass replacing them. I gig all of them, too. I like the call Dieter advice. Thanks, Prog, and thanks guys!

    K&K over Fishman installs

    Anyone ever install a K&K pure pickup in a guitar that came with a fishman preamp mounted in the top of the guitar? I like the way the K&K stuff sounds, but what are the options here? Leave a big hole in the top of the guitar? Is there any way to use the preamp WITH the K&K pickup? Anybody have...

    The Ultimate "Hair Metal albums I need to hear before I die" list

    I think it needs a little Night Ranger and Slaughter. Great list, though.

    Steve Perry In His Prime

    [/FONT] Yeah, but that's like being the smartest kid in special ed. Before you get all bent out of shape, I like some Pearl Jam stuff, mostly because of his singing. I just don't think he has the same degree of chops as guys like Steve Perry, Coverdale, Dio, Freddie Mercury, you know, the singers.

    Very very ordinary singers who made it big time ?

    Nah. They sound like guys you meet and wish they would stop talking. Then somebody decides to put them behind a microphone.:nuts

    Very very ordinary singers who made it big time ?

    Textbook FAIL. You missed it, not him. I say from the OP description, Dylan and Thom Yorke nail it.

    I picked up a solo acoustic gig...

    When are you playing? Are you the only entertainment? Have they told you what they want? It depends. If you don't already have enough to pull off two hours, I'm guessing they don't exactly know what you're going to do. Might want to check on those things.

    5 must learn guitar solos

    Any rhyme or reason to the selection process? I suppose learning the rest of the song is a prerequisite. The five he selected are certainly filled with great things to learn, and are great for that, however, if you wanted to learn some that you might actually play with a band? Here are five...

    Plus declining album sales, no real solution to piracy? She'll come out way ahead on this.

    Learning to sing...what do I need for gear?

    Be careful, though. Techniques are techniques, but if you're singing rock, it can sound goofy if you pick up the habits (and/or attitude) of someone who sings showtunes or church hymns. Particularly the emphasis they place on enunciation can make you sound like a complete tool in a hard rock...

    Does a glut of guitars stifle creativity?

    I believe that doing it that way makes one an artist. I believe skipping the learning part and arriving at a similar result makes one just lucky. Not an artist. On the main discussion, I don't think it stifles creativity. All the songs I was writing when I only had a few guitars and used to...
