Hey guys - out of curiosity, what would be the best sounding VST instruments / sound banks for modern pop / hip hop / electronic sounding drums?
Something along these lines (don't laugh at the examples heheh) :
Mainly curious about the ultra powerful/deep kick drum.

'Less is more' competition
By playing less, you will quickly get better. Read on to find out how.
1. Find a backing track that you like from any of the lessons in our archive
2. Record a video of yourself playing a rhythm or lead over the backing track
3. Play as simple as possible in your take.
4. Upload your take to Youtube and post the link in this thread to enter the competition
The goal is absolute simplicity. The less notes you play the better. Use the power of melody and expression to achieve the best results, while keeping it simple. Let you music breathe with long pauses, and carefully chosen notes/chords/bends/vibrato .
We all tend to play a bit too much at times, and this challenge is about the complete opposite: playing as little as possible. This can be as hard as playing flashy licks - taming ourselves is something we often forget to do, even though it probably is the most efficient path towards making progress.
Therefore - we hope that you'll take part in this challenge and that we'll inspire you to think in new terms and approach guitar playing from a different perspective.
* Playing should be as simple as possible
* Recording should be done in video format. Must be a brand new recording, specifically recorded for this occasion.
* You can choose any backing track from the archive.
* Winners will be chosen by GMC Staff and based on the impression we get from your performance and ability to play less...but make it sound more.
* Deadline : 2nd of January 2014.
Completely custom made per your desire signature guitar pick from Vonhotch Custom Designs.

Any point and click adventure games fans out there?
I grew up on these games and was one of rare kids who had patience to play them, everyone was playing Doom and Duke Nukem 3D
I really enjoyed those adventure games as they gave me a feeling of watching a great movie or reading a book. Also there were lots of puzzles I struggled to solve so the playing time was very long.
I heard that new Broken Sword game is in development, one that will go back to its roots with beautiful 2D drawn art :
My favorite adventure games are :
Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars
The Curse Of Monkey Island
Which ones did you enjoy playing?
Are there any newer adventure games that rock?

Hey guys - I was wondering, what is the best string gauge for the acoustic guitar?
A western style guitar, not the classical one.
I think I'll be restringing mine soon so I was wondering what is usually considered as standard gauge?

Hi Bogdan, thanks for the add! :) Any chance of some Heavy or Thrash Metal bass lessons? ;) Even if that's not your style really, am I right? :)
