Others I would list would also be James Leach, Alex Webster, and the dude from Obscura (I don't know his name).

I think Les Claypool would be worth mentioning, even if his vocals are awful.

I lol'ed.

Stuart Hamm is pretty cool. But you can't go wrong with Squarepusher. Love his music.

Really? I guess that's understandable... unless you have ever seen a single video of him, been to his concerts or given a single thought as to why the bass riffs in all his songs are top notch. He really is a god.

He's my #2 most listened to artist, according to last.fm. An astonishing 6,212 plays but considering how much I play his material on my PS3 and all the times last.fm's scorbbler wasn't working, I would say it's closer to 8,000. His last album Just a Souvenir (2008) was ok... it wasn't as good as Ultravisitor or Feed me Weird Things.

and the dude from Obscura (I don't know his name).

Steffen Kummerer? That's what Wikipedia said at least.

No no and no, so yes it is understandable.

Yeah he has been going pretty loopy lately. His Solo Electric Bass album was cool, but Shobaleader One is just strange.

Big Loada is still by far my favorite.

ALL HIS ALBUMS are weird. Certain songs on Ultravisitor are just a complete mind-fuck (50 Cycles? Oh Jesus! It gives one hell of a trip when under the influence of Marijuana) and leads to think that Tom had tried LSD one point or another and if I were to ball park the album, it would be either during Ultravisitor or Big Loada. I will definitely mourn the day when he dies because it will mean that only Richard D James will be left or none of them to make matters worse.

Word, what other songs you have in your classical repertoire? I'm learning Las Abejas by Barrios, it's a very fun piece.

Heeelllooooo everyone. I've been getting into my guitar more lately and I figured it would be fun to start posting here.

I've only been playing for a little over a year. Right now I use some random Ibanez electric guitar but by the end of this year I'll have an American Standard Telecaster, so there's that to look forward to. I can't wait for that twang.

I have some random made in China special, but it's awesome for the fact it has a pickup in it, so I can goes electric on that bitch.

Anybody listen to Scale the Summit? I really love their riffs and the feeling that all of their songs capture. Link for anyone interested.

Not to make a pissing contest out of this but here's a piece I made nearly four years ago. 1:1 scale vector of an Jackson SL1, my ultimate dream guitar. The mesh work out of the guitar and a ESP KH2 are available for viewing on my profile there as well.

In terms of solo pieces, Asturias, Usher's waltz ( still working on it ), a few giuliani studies, and mazurka by villa lobos.

And I've performed various ensemble pieces like chasing dragons, nachtmusic, The cricket song and Concerto de los angeles with william kanengiser.

Really? I literally want any electric guitar with a neck which is wider than the average width. There isn't too much to specify.

Why on earth would you want more distance between your strings, that just makes things harder.

Anybody else here like Mike Einziger? Personally I think the guy is one of the most underrated guitar players of all time and doesn't get enough credit and respect for how well he plays the instrument.

You have two choices in this situation. 1. Give up. 2. Accept the fact that you will have to adjust to something new.

This. If you get a wider neck then you will eventually get used to that but then still not be used to a small neck. Just get it over with.

Does anyone else feel wrong about playing a solo that you can tell the guitarist put their soul into? I mainly like to do improv solos because of that, I just want to know if I'm the only one.

It sounds like you were stressed out when playing and you definitely need to work on your bends and trills... and try to make it clean next time. Other than that, not bad.
