    How should we know without you telling us your scale :erk:
    Why the fuck would you have your guitar tuned a a music shop ?

    Just tune the guitar down already ... it will most certainly even work with your strings you have on right now (better if you have a 25.5 scale).
    If youre done with that and you wanna be really cool you may even adjust the intonation by using a screwdriver and just turning the fucking screws and looking what happens.
    If youre not into this or your strings are old just put up something around 52 or so. Adjusting the intonation is also a "nice to have", when you change so little its NOT important.
    You could also change the action yourself, just try it out, or read it on the internet.
    The only thing you could even think about would be taking the guitar to someone for the trussrod adjustments, that may be confusing and dangerous if youre a retard.

    Glad I could help.

    Yeah the tone isn't great. I didn't use my PX4 for that, I mic'd up my mate's Line 6 Spider amp (sounds shit in person too!) with a crappy mic with loads of room noise! :p

    I think I tabbed the intro to SUS but I never learnt the whole thing but it's such a good song, even now.

    My friend thought once that Sacrifice unto Sebek was tuned down Sixpounder.

    That's the tab I use, some parts are a bit off but it's the closest one I've found.

    That's a pretty obvious Bernie Rico knockoff though =/

    Either way, I would like to give an 8 string a try.

    Thanks for the tab guys, I'll go get my Warlock and get it tuned to A!

    And I just played through it, realised it's kinda boring to play, so I'm now tuned to EEE playing Let The Computer Decide by Paul Gilbert!

    even 12s or so in A would be easy to bend lol. Alsooooooo with the scallops. I agree with Zakk immensely.

    That song has the best verse riff ever, it's just an E power chord then a sweep just comes in from nowhere. I really don't understand why Karl sweeps so sloppily on songs like Sacrifice Unto Sebek (it's an awesome song, but you know that it's true) when it's SHOWN that he can sweep cleanly in that song and his solos in Khem Khefa Kheshef (favourite from Those Whom the Gods Detest :D)

    I've never been much interested in Nile really. I've tried getting into them and they just haven't really done it for me. Idk, not my thing I guess.

    I should probably give a legitimate listen to Nile, I've only heard a couple songs.

    Does anyone around here like to play classical? I mean like, actual classical, not neoclassical. XD

    I've tried but it's too difficult to me. I can't even fingerpick anything except Nothing Else Matters...:lol:

    I was thinking the same thing...listening to it thinking "oh these aren't actually that bad for once..."

    My guitar is tuned in B standard with a 12-54 set (Nile is in Drop A), I can bend 2 and a half steps, using at least 2 fingers to do it.

    I do, I started jazz lessons like 6 or more months ago now it's sort of turned into brazilian classical stuff. it's actually not as hard as i thought, i went from not being able to read well for guitar at all to looking at pretty difficult pieces and learning them just by reading.

    Kem Khefa Kheshef's solo is a one hell of a sweep picking party. My favourite from that album is 4th Arra of Dagon. So epic.
