I'd say just learn your scales, improvise over backing tracks, learn stuff you want to learn.. Get a teacher if you really need some guidance, I guess.

Yeah, I used them for standard B and standard C tunings in the past. Great for those tunings. I would'nt use them for any higher tunings though because the string tension would be too high, and difficult to bend the treble strings.

I was gonna use em for D/Drop C.
Maybe too high tuning, but I can't stand slack strings.

I think i'm gonna use the 11-70 set on my RR instead (Anyone tried these w/ a FR?), and the 12-56 on my other guitars.

My mind is really cloudy atm, i think i'm on a wild goose chase here

Well, it all depends on how much tension you're used to. I'm a guy who plays with 9-46 in standard E and 10-52 in standard D, so I'm kinda used to light strings. Your best bet is just to try, maybe you'll like them.

The 11-70 set you're talking about is insane though. The low 70 is thicker than what's commonly used for the 8th string on 8-string guitars so.....good luck with that one

Ah ok, I like the tension tight and I can't stand gauge 9 strings

I'm hoping the 11-70 will go through the tuners..

It's Alder, This guitar sounds SOO much different from all the other guitars i own, the tone is very chimelike well I mean like you can really hear the string definition and picking characteristics well and it rings very nicely,

Two hours ago I saw a YouTube movie about a guy who was explaining about Sweep Picking,
and he said that it's very important that you mute the previous note while sweeping.
Is this really nessacery?

yes, otherwise you have just a chord actually.
and when lifting your fingers without muting, you will occur a pulloff effect, and you sweep will sound very noisy, sloppy.
try muting with palm

Ok thanks very much
At the moment I'm learning the Virtual Future solo by Sinergy,
and at the beginning (slow^^) sweeps I couldn't hear something bad...
but thanks anyway!

yeah, when playing clean, or really slow you won't notice it much, but when speeding up it will sound horrible if you do not mute

^ Yeah me too, Sam Totman's signature is actually really cool imo



It's cheap too, about 650 last I checked (although I did find one store selling it for 530), 5pc Wizard II neck through, Mahogany body, 24 frets and Dimarzio Evolution pickups. Pretty good deal if you ask me.

Then there's also the X range of the Iceman guitars.



Pretty much the same specs as the Totman sig but with Dimarzio D-Activators and no gay Edge III.

Yeah, i was actually looking into that one. But, if i'm getting one, i would want a hard tail and some other pickups. (It would be to close to my Jem otherwise).

Still, it's a good deal!

Hell yeah, all Icemans posted here are nice!

What kind of music does your band play, Lowberg? It is a female fronted band if I remember correctly.

Well, for now its sort of a "band for the summer" type deal, everyone else in the band is alot older than me (like early 30s) and right now we are just doing covers of like Nightwish, Sirenia, Lacuna Coil ect. I dig it but i would rather do something heavier, original songs and with more fun guitar work

This was my old band Aegean, which exists no more. We had a good run, played a ton of local and a few good national shows.

I'm also getting a Pirate Metal band in the works with my drinking buddies, as well as a serious powermetal-bodomy type band.
