    Thanks!

    Yeah, something like that. I don't have the Metal Pack though. :D

    For the rhythm tone I used this dual channel preset I've made:

    Left (20%): Noisegate - Screamer - Line6 Spinal Puppet - Compressor - Sine Chorus
    Right (20%): Noisegate - Line6 Insane - Compressor

    Leads are just Line6 Insane and Screamer with some chorus, digital delay and reverb.

    my band recently played California Metal Fest and it was hella fun; not only did the crowd go apeshit and there were a ton of great bands on the fest but all the gear for us and the opening bands was backlined so we didn't have to drive down with a ton of gear AND I got to use an amp way better than mine. It was a blackstar venue 100 I think which is like close to $2,000, sadly the one I was using was the weaker one for some reason that day and we didn't have time to switch me to the other side of the stage cuz we had to go on (our other guitarist borrowed a triple x head and used it so i didn't even know the head I was using was weak until he was already set up) but luckily i got a tech dude to help me fuck with it and by the time it was mic'd up it sounded pretty heavy over the huge pa. I wanted to use the series 100 which is what Ihsahn uses but they didn't have it on the stage and I didn't want to try to find it and end up wasting our set but yeah it was still cool, I love using amps that are better than mine (not hard since I have a spider 3 stack haha). here's a video of us playing and the sound is kinda fucked up cuz it was so loud but you can still hear the tube-y goodness and also if you skip to 50 seconds and skip all my douchey stage banter pumping them up you can see our wall of death which was a fucking tidal wave of people haha! I bet security was freaking because they didn't expect an opening band to cause such a dangerous situation for them so they were shining lights on it and shit haha

    Nice song Epi, I saw it on YouTube last night. I admire the way you play the melody, with that weird downward slide at 00:09 back into the start of it again, sounded like Vai. Very nice.

    Thanks! Yeah, I really like the sound of those downward slide things. Like to do them a lot when playing melodies.

    I think he did actually, the more recent videos of their stuff on youtube he's playing some other guitar that definitely isn't his washburn V. It's fine with me anyways though, I didn't care for them that much. The fretboard was really smooth though.

    Thanks for the vocal help, I'll definitely keep that in mind!

    If you don't mind my asking, how do you set the Compressor and EQs?

    You're a "Pro Guitarist", you should know how to do it ;)


    I think so, I couldn't really tell what it was. When I saw your post I went to google last night and his guitar appeared to still be on the washburn website, but there is next to nowhere that sells it now. He needs to get a nice Jackson like Nick imo.:loco:

    You simply adjust the tuners on your guitar headstock until your strings are in tune. Hope this helps :).

    Er wouldn't it just show up on the tuner as DGCFAD? simply tune each string to the correct note. If you're trying to tune it the same way your typing it, you probably have it all back to front aha. Another way is if your tuner has semi tones set it to 2 semi tones down and tune it like you would for standard tuning. Pro guitarist my butt :p
