    Best amp modeling unit period. Not just for metal, excels at everything really. More amp/cab/stomp/effect models then you can imagine, customized in any way you want.

    Very very powerful, pretty much a computer in itself. But very expensive.

    Some vids for you!

    Creepiest looking guitarist on youtube:


    This guy gives a good basic overview of it.

    No problem.

    Hopefully it will help you out.

    Once you get it in and everything let me know what you think. I don't know too many people who use the 4 spring method so I am curious as to what others think of it.

    Has anyone of you ever heard about a "band" called ProtoShredanoid ?
    A friend of mine recently showed me one of their songs on guitar hero, the guitar hero on tour modern hits theme.
    The actual song is called S.U.P.R.A.H.U.M.A.N, I think:



    They wrote a few other songs and have like 2 albums which can only be downloaded as a mp3 album: Spurious Emission 1,2.
    The guitar work in there is really amazing.

    I can hardly find any information at all about this band (not even talking about tabs here^^) so, has anyone ever heard about them? I'd be curious.

    regards

    I will actually attempt to give that main melody a go! The sweeps use the 7th string, so I'll try that but there are parts that will kick my ass! :lol:

    I realised after I ordered it that I could have just taken one from my cheapo strat copy...d'oh! I'll try it later.

    Hey if you need any Nevermore tab or Loomis licks let me know.

    I got his Guitarworld thing he did, which is bad ass BTW, so i can always scan it and post it.

    I know it does have some Jato Unit stuff in it, just not whole songs.

    @Mitch: There are only 3 and 5 string sweeps in the song.

    Oh man, I was thinking of that other one!! I know one part of Jato Unit...Miles Of Machines is the one with the 7 string sweeps, d'oh!

    And yeah, a scan would be awesome! I'd love to see. :D

    Glad I could help someone on this forum.

    I see so many others, such as yourself, who really try to contribute quality info on this forum, so glad I could make a contribution, be it a small one.

    I just love mine w/ 4 springs. I mean at first it feels almost a little too stiff with the whammy bar, but once you get used to it, it is great.

    Jato Unit is an insanely awesome song.
    Its really way beyond anything they ever did imo.
    I also love the "rocky" kind of solo approach, im kinda tired of guys wanking the diminished arpeggio over and over again, so Loomis is a very good example of how to solo properly without loosing the kind of "classical" sound.

    Id just say you should check out some Nile, theyre intense, but I think theyre not really your style :D

    I would really like to see "Unas, Slayer of the Gods" and "Lashed to the Slave Stick" played by Mitch. But I also think that they aren't his style.

    Mitch doing the solo section from Khem Khefa Kheshef would be GODLIKE.

I can't listen to too much Nile but they're good.

    If you want some stuff scanned from me, hit me up. I also got the Jeff Loomis DVD and tab book from Guitar World.

    Lashed To The Slave Stick played by me when I was at college, which was coming up to about 5 years now, as I say. :kickass:

    I'll take you up on that, cheers!

    I learned Sacrifice unto Sebek a while ago, doing a cover of that or anything from AOTW together would be so awesome (I could support bass and good drums, and I can play about anything from them on guitar).
    Nile is just awesome.

    Oh yeah, your recording is quite cool, pretty tight I have to say.
    I dont like the tone, but thats obvious I think.

    at the moment my guitars tuned to E standard (EBGDAE) but i want to change it to one step down (DAFCGD).
    what strings should i use for them and what gauge/thickness?
    im gonna get it done at a local music shop and ill also ask them how they do it just so next time i want to muck around with the tuning, ill do it myself.

    and i just cleaned my alexi 600 using cottonbuds, it looks spotless :D it took me about an hour. feel proud. haha.

    1. Buy several gauges/brands of strings, preferably between 11-52 or 10-52 if you want firmer, 10-46 if you want a pretty light touch, etc.
    2. Test them on a hardtail guitar, assuming you didn't sell yours to get your Alexi which would be a monument to stupidity.
    3. Choose YOUR PREFERENCE.
    4. Congratulations, you've done something all by yourself. You're a big boy now!

    wow just got home from playing my show went fucking amazing the place was packed beyond its capacity although the venue we played at is a dump and sound is crap. The good thing that came out of this is that we got booked to open up for the biggest local band that plays our style of music so i'm pretty pumped to play with them because they are also one of my favorite bands and its going to be exposure for my band... anyways just thought i'd share that with you guys :p
