    If I find a meter I'll measure mine so we can see if those measurements are right.

    It seems that the lower wing there is a bit smaller than most, but maybe I'm wrong.

    sup guys I need some help,

    I'm playing passage to the reaper part 1 at a talent show, and i'm kinda stuck..

    When doing the fast lick in the beginning, first roope, then allu... I struggle with the timing on allus part. If i start with a downstroke it's messed up, if i start with an upstroke it's a little bit better, but still very messed.

    How do you play it?

    tab i'm using:

    http://www.sendspace.com/file/r9htyl

    bar 11, track alexi

    Could be the tab is wrong at that part, I dunno.

    I don't play in D, but I'd say 0.012 or 0.013 to begin with. You can start from there.

    11-54. Great for drop C also.

    Duude:lol: Silenoz from Dimmu may use 013 in D, but that's just insane:lol:

    I'd say 11-50 in D, and 11-54 if you want to use it in drop C as well.

    If you're playing jazz, then yes :p

    Most people use .10s, but i'd use .11s

    Start it with an upstroke, as the first beat is a rest. Otherwise your strokes are offset to start with an upstroke for the rest of the measures. If it helps you can sorta ghost-note a downstroke during that rest, then on to the upstroke. Everything works out perfectly that way. If you want further reassurance you can watch Alexi play it at 5:43 in this video :)

    Thanks! Ok I know that e.g. the last run is quite sloopy, and then dunno some other parts a bit and yeah, I still have a loooooooooooooot of room to improvise with bendings :lol: Besides bendings and last run, in which thing would you say I should work more?

    Looking good! Good luck with it, and about the neck-thru bolt-on thing seems like you already have it clear, but dunno, breaking a neck is not like the most usual thing, so I wouldn't go with that in mind when selecting the kind of construction. The difference in sustain is there but it's not that big and can be compensated, but I'd say that if the guitar is not done by a pro (no offence to your mother, but it's hard to nail something on the 1st try) maybe you're bound to get better sustain and everything if you go neck-thru. Dunno, anway that's up to you :p

    Looks like you never tried a Jackson bolt on standing :lol:

    If the neck of your guitar breaks, it's only because you deserve it.

    Dudes :lol: I use 0.010 in E standard, a friend of mine uses 0.013 in E standard too (ok, now THAT is insane)... but tuning down a whole step would make the strings feel like rubber bands! :p

    WHAT??? E with 0.10? :lol: That may be ok for strict rythm or something (at least for me), but how the fuck do you bend that? :lol:

    I mean, I use 0.08 for E tuning, and then 0.10 for D standard, but for E it'd be too much for me.

    10 for E is quite normal. I prefer 9s though. Doesn't 8s feel like spaghetti, moreso than 9s?
    I mean, 9s in E to me is completely comfortable and requires little to no effort to play, while 8s would be...way too thin :rofl:

    I also use .10s in E. Better tone and controll of the strings.
