Whatever happened to NeeWhan

I was just thinking about my time on these boards - and I thought whatever happened to NeeWhan? I miss his ramblings and alternative interpretations :lol:

I posted this here because as far as I'm aware he spent most of his time hanging around the Techniques, Playing Styles and Music Theory section.

i meant 200ms, sorry :lol:

and its true that playing with a metronome can be just as helpful, but its always good to have variation in the way you practice your timing, so that you dont get terribly bored, and it sounds musical too, so its a good method i thought id offer to people

I wasnt too bothered about seeing them on tour before, but with Bumblefoot, hot damn im there!

Ron Thal (aka Bumblefoot) is the most awesome guitarist! The stuff he plays is just ridiculous! Check out some videos on youtube if you havent heard him.

i dont think it matters wether its strictly alternate or not as long as it soudns good musically a really really good way i discovered to help make your picking stricter is to set a delay pedal up with about a 20ms delay, give or take a few, and try to play along so that it doubles your sound, play ...

There is another really cool idea which Paul Gilbert uses a lot, fast picking that has an incredibly bluesy feel:

Code: Select all

e-7--------------7
B--9-8-7---7-8-9-
G---------9-------
Play that idea really fast and it give a very fresh yet bluesy approach.

if it was me id try playing some arpegios using lots of passing notes, especially the flat 5th, try sliding and hammering on on some strings to get a bluesy passing note feel

It depends what sorta stuff youre playing really, if youre playing extreme dream theatery type songs with many parts and unorthodox structures, concentrate on the timings and when to change parts, if youre playing something fairly simple, walk around, or at least tap your foot or something, and smil...

Right, sorry about the other reply being fairly brief, ive got more time now. The trem should be a bout parallel with the guitar at all times, tighten the strings until it sits back down. The way you raise the trem is to use an allen key on the two studs at the top of the trem, nearest the neck, on ...

As Eutow said, you dont need to have any special adjustments, you jsut rotate the bar 180 degrees from where you usually use it and slide your hand down it, keeping pressure on it so the bridge pings back up when you slide of the end. And i also dont think that current setup is doing your guitar any...
