I had the pleasure of seeing the Scorpions the other night at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, MA. This is the second time I've seen them in concert. First time was back in 88 for the Monsters of Rock tour. I have to say, these guys still rock! At 59 years of age, Klaus and Rudolph have more energy than most 20 year olds.

The show started with a backup band called "3" who warmed up the audience for about 25 minutes. Not bad, pretty rockin band with two very good drummers. Then with not much delay, the Scorpions came out and brought the house down. Here is the set list:

Hour 1
Bad Boys Running Wild
Love 'Em or Leave 'Em
The Zoo
Deep & Dark
Coast to Coast
Send Me An Angel (Acoustic)
Holiday (Acoustic until the end)
Make It Real
I'm Leaving You
Tease Me, Please Me
Kottak Attack/Bass Solo
Big City Nights
Still Loving You
No One Like You
Rock You Like a Hurricane
When the Smoke is Going Down

They played for 2 1/2 hours with no breaks other than during the bass and drum solo. I haven't listened to the Scorpions too much over the past few years, but this show brought back some great memories and was well worth the money. Klaus Meine was sounded in top form and Schenker and Jabs were just awesome. The guys are better than I remember. Bass player, Pawel Maciwoda, was excellent as well and played a cool solo. The drummer James Kottak is a crazy man, jumping all over his kit and running all over the stage. They really got the crowd into this show. The Orpheum is a fairly small theatre, maybe 3 - 4 thousand, not sure with very good acoustics so they were very close to everyone. We were about 10 rows back and were in a great spot for sight and sound.

I took my son Nick who is 12 years old since my buddy backed out last minute. It was his first concert and he had a blast. During 'The Zoo', Klaus threw out a few drumsticks and one landed behind us and rolled right to my sons feet. At my age, I can't see crap when I look down. He spotted it right away and came up with it. Cool! I've been going to shows for 30 years and never managed to get a drum stick. Toward the end of the show he asked if he could go into the aisle closer to the stage in case they toss out guitar picks. Well, the little shit was all over the place and end up with two Rudolph Schenker picks and a Matthias Jabs pick. Sweet! I had more fun watching him at that point. Of course, I could not leave without at least one souvenir and managed to snag a drum stick toward the end of the show. Great concert, lots of fun, excellent guitars, really rockin!

I happened to be replying to a thread and noticed Andrew does not live too far from me. He lives in Connecticut which is maybe a 100 miles or so away. Very close in the scheme of things. Just curious where everyone is from since there are some GMCers from the states and many from overseas. What say you? Oh, and maybe how close you are to a major metropolitan area like London, New York, Los Angeles... I live in Londonderry, NH which is about 45 minutes north of Boston MA

Does anyone have experience with modifying pedals? I'm not overly happy with my Boss CS-3, it's noisy and sucks my tone so I was thinking about sending out to either Keeley or Mark Humphrey. Mods are $50 each and supposedly they can take an average pedal and make it sound incredible. The other option which would be less expensive and easier to experiment with different combinations would be to modify myself. I purchased a DIY manual from Indyguitar and they step you through exactly what needs to be changed by location and value. I was thinking about giving it a try and if it goes well then possibly modifying my DS2, MT2, and GE7. From everything I have read, the standard off the shelf boxes can all be much improved with better caps, diodes, and op amps to cut down on noise and improve the overall sound.

I get a message when I load some of the In the style of lessons. Basically, any lesson that has the message under the Enter Here! Or go to part 1 2 3 4 ... I get this message:

The page “Guitar Masterclass” has content of an unspecified MIME type. Because you don’t have a plug-in installed for this MIME type, this content can’t be displayed.

Does anyone know what I need to download to be able to view these lessons?

Hello everyone!

I am new to the site, about 2 weeks now and new to the guitar. I just purchased a Schecter Classic and Peavey tube amp and have been practicing every night. I like all type of music but really love the hard rock and metal. This site is great.
