Yeah, I got it all set up and in the end that actually cost me twice the original price of the guitar, but hey that's not too bad. And yeah sure Adam Neely is a great musician. Not really my style but I have learnt some useful stuff from him.

Is that in American dollars? If it is, that's not bad at all. But yes honestly the only thing that yours have to do is level the frets or just make them more comfortable. Also if you have bad intimation or action a new neithe would help. But typically you won't need one. And yes it's bad but I'm assuming he's come across a lot of bad bass players. To be fair he did work with Adam Neely in a video or two so he doesn't hate all bass players. Just the bad ones. And Adam Neely is nowhere near bad. He's probably more educated than most guitarists. And he's very technique orientated. I mean the dude can sight read sheet music.

That humbucker was $98, and the locking tuners cost $66. I like that idea of modding a cheap guitar into something awesome. And yeah lol that bass player ranting is a bit annoying and took me a long time to get used to. But he doesn't do that in every video.

Wow 7 exams? No thanks I hate exams. But ah I see you're changing the pickups and tuners on a bullet start? Hmm how much are they? Haha Spectre guy is always angry shouting at the bass player ???? but I have a guitar with EMGs and they're not that great. I haven't had them for that long but I'm not too much of a fan so far. Theyv have too much treble. I like a fatter sound, which is why I stick strictly to humbuckers. Yes passive are a lot easier. I don't wanna buy batteries cuz they're so expensive lol

Yeah, in France we have a small part of the exams at the end of junior year, but the majority of them are in senior year. In less than 60 hours I'm gonna be doing the 1st of 7 written exams to come haha.
And it's a Squier Bullet Strat. I've picked the Organic Mirror, it's made by a new company based in Chile that I've discovered in a review from SpectreSoundStudios. It's meant to compete with EMGs and stuff, but is actually passive, which I prefer.
6/15/2018 12:20:35 PM
You have finals again? Wow. And hey that's awesome. What kind of pickups are you gonna put on them? And which guitar is it again?
6/13/2018 12:53:56 AM
Okay dudes, sorry for the inactivity. I'm studying for my finals right now. I do have some good news, as I'm getting my old guitar set up with a nice pickup, and locking tuners. I'm sure it's gonna be amazing.

It's an interesting scale. You could use it for some creepy sounding stuff if you do it right. I'm still trying to figure stuff out. You know quite a bit about music, that's impressive. If you keep at it you're gonna know more than even some of the best guitarists out there
1/13/2018 1:05:27 AM
Ah yeah, I've heard that scale somewhere, I think it was in metalcore or something like that.
1/10/2018 12:02:36 PM
It's the harmonic minor. I made some research and there is more than one major scale. I just realized that pretty much anything with a major 3rd is a major scale. The harmonic is minor and the double harmonic is major. It's 1, m2, M3, 4, 5, m6, 7. And yeah I've been wanting to get into other music as well. I mean one of my favorite bands, Breaking Benjamin has a lot of songs in drop A#. I'll check bring me to the horizon out. I've been wanting to for a while now.
1/9/2018 2:40:23 AM
I don't know if that's actually called the harmonic major scale, but basically it's the major with a diminished 6th. And wow, you're really starting to get into the lower tunings. Bring Me the Horizon have some great songs in drop A#.
1/7/2018 11:17:28 AM
Anytime man, it's free too so that's even better. This guy has a crazy amount of knowledge on music theory so hey that's probably the best place to look at. It's helped me quite a bit too. Yes, my favorite scale (I don't think it's on the site I've been doing my own research) is the double harmonic scale. I use the harmonic minor scale a lot too, it's not too different from the natural minor. Only one note away. But hmm I thought there was only one major scale. Unless you're talking about the modes. Or altered versions. But oh there you go. I'm using D'Addario Drop C tuning 12-52 I think or something like that. I have my Schecter still in Drop D though and I changed my Jackson to Drop A#.
1/7/2018 12:28:26 AM
Oh, thanks for letting me know! I've been trying Synyster's site for the last few days and it's helping me A LOT. I really like the harmonic scales, both major and minor. And by the way, I'm tuned to drop C and I use Ernie Ball's Not Even Slinky pack.

That's okay. None of us here are professional mixers or anything so with a little tweaking and trial and error we'll get it. Oh by the way, Positive Grid is offering their Compressor plugins free (coincidence) which I think is really good and you should get it. Especially you Charles since you play guitar. Oh by the way I remember you telling me about trying to learn to do sweep picking and everything. Check out syngates.com he has a tab you can follow along with different arpeggio shapes and you can change the tempo and everything. It's awesome I've really improved since I've been practicing it. I can get the first three sections at 70% speed. Definitely check it out man. I love stuff like that so if you ever find a good site or anything let me know. I've been recently learning how to use different scales. I use scale-chords.com to find them. It's a little more advanced but it works. I think my all time favorite scale is the double harmonic. I'm in love with that scale. It's pretty much all half steps and you could really use it to make very melodic sounding solos. Maybe I'll demo it one of these days. I've been working a little bit on Severed Lies. My Les Paul for some reason doesn't sound very well on Drop C though. Hmm I think I might just need to change the strings so there's more tension because it sounds kind of like it's going out of tune. Mostly on the lower frets though on the B or G strings which is kinda odd. But oh well I'll see what I can do. What have you guys been working on?

It actually used to be way worse. I'm not very experienced with limiters. Maybe that, and some more subtle effects, will make the vocals pop out a bit more.
12/30/2017 7:44:26 PM
during the verses, I mean.
12/30/2017 7:44:16 PM
Um.. why are the vox always "stuffed beneath"?
12/30/2017 9:39:25 AM
Not bad at all. I think we're pretty much done with it. What else do you think it's missing? The only thing is that it's a tiny bit quite. Nothing a limiter couldn't fix though so that's not bad. Or even a compressor here and there.
12/30/2017 6:15:25 AM
Alright guys, I finally got to work. Tell me what you think of this!
