Total Plectrums

  1. many years ago when I played classical guitar, I was never without an emery board, and a clear nail strengthener.
  2. Among other things, I'd like to see total fret access.

    For once this is actually a genuine question - is it any good for metal?

    Pretty accurate
  5. Probably going to buy one of these too. Probably the jazz one.

    If ever they manage to do a convincing nylon string model, I'd be tempted.

    How does it sound?

    Was looking for the 'Wow' like, and there isn't one!
  9. I ended up buying these. The thickness is the same for all, 0.6 and 1.2, but the material for each is different with different levels of 'flex'. The green is the stiffest, followed by red then black. Ideally I'd want the green pick but with the black softer pick.
  10. Good advice from all above, the only thing I would say is that for me playing along to a metronome is slightly less boring than watching paint dry. Playing along with drums can make things a bit more interesting, plenty of free apps available on the t'internet. Also playing along with songs can be good as this will also work your 'ear' as you find the key and how to fit the licks.
  11. There are no absolutes. At a gig you might expect ZZ Top to be wearing denims, or you might expect them to be wearing suits. They're gonna be awesome regardless. Flying V's may be associated with metal, but when they came out lots of Country bands were using them. Billy Duffy uses his Gretch in The Cult. No Rockabilly in sight!
  12. Those are 3 different questions, and for me there a 3 different answers: Favourites Ray Burns (Captain Sensible) Roberto Aussel C.C. DeVille Influenced Francis Dunnery Paul Gilbert John Williams Profound Effect My mate Mark My first classical guitar teacher Kee Marcello
  13. Excitement and nervousness share similar physiological symptoms, so adjusting your mindset can help.. If you like gigging, the next time you feel nervous about it, tell yourself 'I'm not nervous, I'm excited!' and smile while you're saying it. "even a fake smile — can have a positive impact on mood. Essentially, triggering certain facial muscles by smiling can "trick" your brain into thinking you're happy". Psychology innit!
