    I use 10-52 in Open C, and D standard tuning, 25.5" scale. Happy with it :)

    Also use 11-50 flatwound chromes in E standard on the telecaster, derp.

    I use whatever Laiho uses in whatever tune Laiho plays in and I change it accordingly to the changing mood of whatever Laiho is in.

    If I played in C# or Drop C most of the time, but I'm usually in E, D# or Drop D, so I need lighter shit. And yeah my guitar has a 24.75 inch scale.

    This is kind of an inside joke between me and my friends so you guys probably wont find it nearly as funny, but to get you caught up;

    Basically a few years ago my friends somehow came to the conclusion that a man with an asian accent would say "How are you doing!?" like "HOWYUEDOIIN!!" and we used to always greet each other by yelling that, becoming our favorite phrase

    And after a year or so it kind of transformed into "HoyDing" somehow.

    So anyways, my singer and I got distracted and ended up making the hoidinggggg symphony

    I just did the orchestra programming, he played the guitar...and isnt very good.. so i apologize in advance :lol:

    I peeked at this thread only to be reminded its been about a year since I changed the strings on my guitar. :/
    And I really don't see a reason as to why I should. I used to do it every few months, as I was told to do so, but I havn't and it still feels and sounds the same.

    I don't even know how many years its been since I took care of my bass strings, I think the strings on that are getting to the 3-4 year mark.

    Try changing them now and see if you can tell the difference after a year.

    I haven't changed my strings in about 7 months and it makes me wanna kick the dog in the junk when I play. =/

    You dirty faggot


    Thats like all those fat basement dwellers who never wash and claim they "turn natural" and "never stink".
    It's all in your mind bro. There's a massive difference in both feel and tone, any developed ear can hear that.

    Does anyone have a guitar pro file of a shit ton of scales basically? I want to try to bust my ass and get my max bpm higher since I seem to be stuck at around 150 for strict alternate picking and not sweeps. I think maybe learning every scale I possibley can will help that way I will be comfortable in just about any position on the fretboard. I'm running out of ideas =/

    I doubt it. It's your physical ability that's being limited, your fretboard knowledge shouldn't have anything to do with it. Play it at 170, mess it up, then go back down to 150 and see if it feels any easier.

    I'm not restringing my guitar with strings I can't use on my usual tunings if I'm only going to tune that low for an hour or two.

    Found this guy awhile ago while looking at Greensleeves covers. Just now listened to his other songs. Infinity, and Dark Forest are pretty neat :)

    so its been a while since i've posted here. My band just got out of the studio took us alot longer than we expected for the one song we recorded (13 hours) but we focused on getting everything perfect. Once again I ran through the fractal axe FX, that thing is really incredible but we will only be using it for leads all rhythm guitars will be re amped with 5150's. I also finally worked out my amp issue i decided to go with a madison divinity head and a randall cab and i must say this amp is heavy as fuck, cant wait to get a bbe sonic maximizer to add on to it :loco: here are some pictures of the amp
