    Compact single audio monitor

    Do audio monitors always go in pairs? Is there an option to use a single monitor (and also a very compact one) with an usb audio interface? Any suggestion? I use a scarlett solo, but I have always plugged in my headphones, and really know nothing about monitors. So I am sorry for the very...

    Guitar Solo Tabs With Backing Audio?

    On YouTube visit StephLeGratteux channel. There are hundreds of detailed lessons of rock and metal guitar solos. He plays the solo in full speed and then slowly, while tabs run in the lower part of the screen. He links for free on dropbox folders with backing tracks in different speeds; pdf...

    Are you like me?

    I love electric guitars. I have always loved them, and always will. The way they look, the feel when you hold or touch them, the magic of the sound, clean and distorted. I love palm muting, pick slide, wah wah, reverb. I love the sound your fingers may make on the fretboard when you play. It...

    Audio to Tab transcription? Or something else?

    Tremendous. I would not want to be the one who wants to learn this stuff exactly and in details. Seriously, I think that the amount of improvisation in these solos should be considered. It makes things even more difficult to learn and replicate properly.

    Audio to Tab transcription? Or something else?

    I wish I could help you. But I don't have a tab of this solo, and I have myself faked my way through so many songs over the years (decades?) that I am in no position to offer any advice. I have listened to this song for the first time today. I wonder what is your technique, if you also play with...

    NPD - Basic Strat, but pretty!

    I like this photo. I have the same amp, but that is only one of the reasons. The colors, the light, the way every instrument or object in it says "music". Congrats for your new build, she looks beautiful. I would like to be able to assemble a partcaster but I think I'd waste too much time and...

    How do you use a compressor?

    I don't use it. I bought one years ago because I liked the word, compressor, then sold it. I think that in hard rock and metal, with distorted sounds, the first use of this effect is when playing a solo with long legato/tapping phrases. Compressor will even volumes and dynamics, so that tapped...
