1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    I have to warn you guys. I am an acoustic guy who's recently discovered the joy of playing electric guitars. All I've been doing lately is experimenting with OD and distortion tones.

    I apologize in advance since my playing needs a lot of improvement. This is also the reason why the clip is so short. Also, please disregard the "lead" tones as I just put that in there at the last minute for kicks. I am more interested in receiving feedback on the rhythm tones.

    It's the one called Seether. I did not intend to copy the original tones.

    Thanks in advance for putting up with a newbie. :)

    Well, it really depends on where it's supposed to go. Like this it's quite rough and mean, fitting a quite rough and mean song ;-)

    YEAH! That's what I was shooting for - rough and mean! All my other music is mellow and sleepy and I wanted to do something really different.

    Thanks firebird.

    A little palm muting thrown into the chord changes wouldn't hurt. :AOK

    I know I need to work on my playing but what did you think about the tones?

    For the kind of music you are playing it sounds fine to me. Try playing parts of the progression with your right hand (assuming you are right handed) resting on the strings. You'll get a heavier flavor.
