Hello GMCers! It's been awhile. Work has got in the way of my practice. Since I joined GMC I have enrolled in the local community college Music Theory class and may parlay a second BA degree in music. Good stuff e.g. 4 part harmonies. I've also been practicing the Steve Vai 10 hour workout since Oct 07. Up to but have not started the modal scales (for those of you who have it). I don't do 10 hours I get time in after work and homework. However, I've noticed since I modified my picking I am doing the eighth notes. I think I may be sub-orbital shredding. I didn't pass through the Shred Barrier but I think I saw it. It's sloppy right now but I will refine it. I'm using Ernie Ball Super Slinkies on my Strat and CE-22.

Could it be possible that a heavier guage string is necessary for better (attempts) at shredding?

What say yee?

As always I look forward to all your feedback.

edgor....ROCK ON! Oh one more thing that will get in the way of my practice... the trout and bass streams are looking good this time of year. Life is short fish hard!

Hello GMC'ers. I need some guidance. I have a PRS CE 22 with the screw down tuners. How the heck do you use them? Does one tune the guitar and tighten them down and adjust? Thats the only way I can figure it out. What say yee?

I practice about 2 hours a night on my Strat. The Super Slinkys are about a year old. They're doing ok. When should one change strings?

Hey GMC’ers. I’ve been out of town and I’m back and picking up on my practice routine. I’m over the Red Socks. I’ll survive. So let me tell you about the Martin Back Packer acoustic guitar. I bought the guitar just for the purpose of keeping up on practice, while on business travel. I took it to San Diego as carry on luggage with some reading in it. No hassles with it being carryon luggage. I was able to practice in my hotel room any time. It did pass the time being on travel. I was concerned about the Firestorm but I would have floated on it in the bay if the fires reached me. I was able to pack it in my oversized duffel bah (twice the size of Navy issue) to carry onboard an aircraft carrier. I didn’t get to play it on the ship since we averaged a 12 to 20 hour work day. However it fit into the standard Navy locker so I knew it was safe and locked up while I was away from my hammock. Packed it back in the duffel bag and was shot off the ship in a COD and was able to play it at the airport waiting for the Red Eye back to VA. All in all I think it served its purpose. It is my special operation guitar. I bought it with nylon strings for diversity of music. The sound is adequate for the size and design. Ya need the strap. I received a couple of good comments about my playing (GMC SRV blues) at the airport and people didn’t know what the instrument was. All is well that ends well. Look for me on the Eddie Van Halen lesson site. ROCK ON!

Attention all GMCers! I'm putting the axe down and picking up my 5 weight. I'll be in a Trout Stream in Pennsylvania. I'll smoke a cigar on a rock for all of youse. Happy Birthday to me. See you when I get back 1 e & a, 2 e & a.

Cheers!

FISH ON!
