    The Guitar Thread

    This is where we can talk about guitar oriented thing, since alot of members here play, including myself, its open to players, as well as anyone interested in guitar oriented music.

I'd go into more detail, but this thread is about Malmsteen.

    Between the three of Joe, Steve, and Yngwie, Satch is the only one who doesn't have a screw loose somewhere up there. They're all awesome though. I'm pretty excited to see Vai and Satriani (seperately) this April.
    yeah have you seen some of the fur coats vai wears? he looks so hilarious in them!!!

    satch is actually quite talented, so is paul gilbert, what was that band he was in that he got famous for?

    Is hitting people with guitars considered guitar oriented?

    Mines a pretty natural looking red, its practically a mirror I can see myself in it very clearly! Not much of a red tinge at all suprisingly. Black pick-guard, chrome knobs. It looks pretty nice.

    Yeah, Gilbert is a &$*(@ing machine. I've got a reaaallly cheesy video of him - a how-to type of thing. Except it's pretty much impossible to do it like he does. He was famous for playing with Racer X and Mr.Big (with Billy Sheehan).

    I play a super shitty strat that I've owned for years and years and years. I can shred pretty damn good on it, but I seriously need a new one. It's starting to crackle and the neck is getting weak
