15:15:59 Smikey2006: its all about the jazz
15:16:05 Smikey2006: which reminds me to ask you kris
15:16:09 Kristofer Dahl: black metal is even more "dark" isn't it?
15:16:11 Smikey2006: do you know how to play slap guitar?
15:16:13 Robin: jazz is awesome indeed
15:16:17 Robin: yeah sort of
15:16:21 Kristofer Dahl: Smikey no
15:16:27 Robin: its not that "heavy" and stuff like that
15:16:32 Kristofer Dahl: I have only seen Tony Macalpine do that
15:16:39 Smikey2006: yea
15:16:41 Kristofer Dahl: I have a cheating way of doing it though
15:16:49 Kristofer Dahl: ...but it's kind of hard to explain here..
15:16:55 Smikey2006: ahh ic
15:17:07 Smikey2006: darn im trying to learn i dun care how long it takes me really
15:17:15 Slammer: hard question for Kris...If you could Jam in Person with any one GMC instructor... which one would it be?
15:17:29 Gen: lol
15:17:32 Kristofer Dahl: Slammer thats a really cool question!
15:17:36 Smikey2006: especially a hard question with both pavel and andrew in the room
15:17:38 Slammer:
15:17:41 Kristofer Dahl: so let me think
15:17:47 Andrew Cockburn: I wonlt be offended
15:17:52 Kristofer Dahl: MYSELF!!
15:17:53 Andrew Cockburn: I;m just the theory guy
15:17:53 Pavel: hahha do you really have to put Kris in the corner??
15:17:56 Kristofer Dahl: *slap*
15:17:59 Pavel: ok kris - watch your answer!!!!!
15:18:00 Andrew Cockburn: Good answer!
15:18:04 Smikey2006: yes we do oh kris haha
15:18:06 Robin: Indeed.
15:18:12 Pavel: hahahahaha
15:18:14 Gen: haha
15:18:37 Kristofer Dahl: That wasn't a hard decision!
15:18:43 Slammer: Diplomatic Answer
15:18:45 Pavel: Ok Kris - i forgive you!!!
15:18:47 Smikey2006: oh andrew saying theory guy your going to be hearing alot from me in the near future..
15:18:55 Andrew Cockburn: Bring it on!
15:19:10 Kristofer Dahl: Well either way - I have thought about perhaps in the future do som einternet recording thing together
15:19:12 Smikey2006: i know.. nothing of theory .. and i need to know everthing so i can join jazz band at my school
15:19:16 Kristofer Dahl: I know ANdrew has done some of that
15:19:21 Slammer: yes
15:19:23 Smikey2006: so over the summer i need to learn as much as possible
15:19:34 Andrew Cockburn: Yes I have - I can set that all up real easy for us :_)
15:19:45 Andrew Cockburn: I wrote a magazine article on it - trying to get it published
15:19:47 Robin: jazz band you say? thats awesome
15:20:13 Robin: If I werent so lazy I'd learn meself to play jazz
15:20:15 Kristofer Dahl: Set it up?
15:20:19 Andrew Cockburn: Wow, that would be awesonme - a GMC signature song with all the instructors jamming together!!!
15:20:20 Smikey2006: yea its cool.. all my friends r in it cause they play wind instruments and all i play is guitar, but they wont let me in without theory knowledge
15:20:30 Smikey2006: lol that would be crazyzyy
15:20:35 Robin: And one song by the members!
15:20:38 Andrew Cockburn: SMikey, I'll help you!
15:20:53 Kristofer Dahl: Sorry to change topic - but quicly: I am actually writing a kind of UG signature song...almost finished
15:20:59 Kristofer Dahl:
15:21:21 Andrew Cockburn: Cool! Lets get it recorded with guest spots for all the instructors
15:21:28 Andrew Cockburn: Or another song
15:21:36 Robin: that would have been awesome
15:21:42 Gen: aaaaaaaaa noooooo sorry guys, i must go...
15:21:47 Kristofer Dahl: Well this is a cool idea - we could basically have as many isntructors as possible
15:21:47 Andrew Cockburn: bye
15:21:48 Smikey2006: do it up guys
15:21:50 Gen: bye
15:21:53 Smikey2006: Kris can sing
15:22:00 Smikey2006: bye Gen
15:22:00 Robin: maybe we one day Kris can release a "Best of GMC" album
15:22:03 Kristofer Dahl: ...and then they could all do a lesson on "their" section
15:22:10 Andrew Cockburn: Wow, that's excellent
15:22:20 Slammer: Another Question for Kris... I'm guessing that Great Online Guitar Teaching was a Dream of yours for quite a While... Do you think your Dream has been Fulfuilled in GMC or is this just the Beginng of the Story?
15:22:44 Kristofer Dahl: Slammer - that's also a cool question!
15:22:58 Slammer:
15:23:18 Kristofer Dahl: Basically I never had any "dream" about doing this - I just wanted to get out to people through the internet with my guitar
15:23:29 Kristofer Dahl: and this was an excellent way of doing that!
15:23:31 Smikey2006: and it works
15:23:42 Slammer: Cool
15:23:45 Kristofer Dahl: yes! for everyone
15:23:59 Slammer: Good Price too!
15:24:01 Robin: This is a hell of an awesome project
15:24:15 Robin: never seen or heard about any other guitar site that can come even close to GMC
15:24:23 Andrew Cockburn: I love the innovation
15:24:26 Slammer: the rate of Inflation can be a Problem....
15:24:28 Slammer: LOL
15:24:29 Slammer: jk
15:24:32 Andrew Cockburn: Kris just isnt sitting on his laurels
15:24:44 Smikey2006: lol
15:24:52 Andrew Cockburn: We get cool new featers every month
15:24:56 Kristofer Dahl: Loads of people are doing it at youtube also
15:25:05 Smikey2006: i don't worry bout what im paying haha ive gotit set up over paypal and i just pay my bill
15:25:06 Kristofer Dahl: nowadays!
15:25:06 Andrew Cockburn: ... but we're way better
15:25:12 Smikey2006: GMC is as essential as water and heating
15:25:13 Slammer: YES!!
15:25:35 Andrew Cockburn: I think the addiction thread is really funny - thought I was the only one
15:25:43 Kristofer Dahl: Yes ther eis a lot of junk at youtube - so it can be hard to find the good stuff
15:25:53 Kristofer Dahl: Especially instructional-wise
15:25:55 Robin: Indeed. I'd die without GMC
15:26:02 Robin: Haha andrew
15:26:09 Robin: I'm so addicted as it gets
15:26:10 Slammer: before I was at another site.. which I'll call GT (u guys can prob. figure it out) They are nothing compared to GMC
15:26:29 Kristofer Dahl: hehe
15:26:38 Slammer: their Instructor really aren't that good
15:26:43 Slammer: it true
15:26:45 Robin: I think Kris have just made an evil cult. I think we're all being brainwashed by this "GMC" thing >
15:26:48 Slammer: I was dissapointed
15:26:53 Andrew Cockburn: Kris keeps very high standards
15:27:04 Andrew Cockburn: that's the key to all of GMC
15:27:08 Kristofer Dahl: Yes I try!
15:27:30 Robin: How long untill GMC will be a real religion?
15:27:48 Slammer: not untill we Have Video Theory Lessons!
15:27:49 Andrew Cockburn: What, you mean I'll have to give up being a Jedi?
15:27:49 Kristofer Dahl: 2011 - that when gmciass will come
15:27:55 Slammer: LOL
15:27:57 Robin:
15:28:03 Kristofer Dahl:
15:28:13 Andrew Cockburn: Video theory lessons - that will be phase II when I have finished my current list
15:28:20 Robin: ohh "gmciass" ripping good laugh.
15:29:42 Smikey2006: .what site is this?
15:29:42 Kristofer Dahl: haha no actually things should go quicker than that - its the internet!!

15:30:26 Kristofer Dahl: yes really
15:30:41 Slammer: the Only problem is I don't got a Vid Camera... but maybe I'll buy one
15:30:43 Kristofer Dahl: its a great way to qualify for senior member
15:30:50 Andrew Cockburn: LOL
15:30:52 Robin: hey kris, I'm worknig on a song now, and when I get good at it I want to make it a real GMC lesson(if you accept of course), but can I still have it on myspace and maybe even release a demo with that song on?
15:31:10 Smikey2006: k sry i can't follow because this internet lags ill bbs
15:31:24 Kristofer Dahl: Yes you may use the song but not the video or the instructions etc
15:31:34 Kristofer Dahl: see you!
15:31:39 Robin: ah thats awesome
15:32:07 Smikey2006: Okay im back.. perhaps no more lag

15:41:19 Kristofer Dahl: Well I think ANdrew and I have come up with a great plan for that!
15:41:21 jeff: I just got a PODxt a few days ago. I love that thing. Wish I had gotten it sooner!
15:41:28 Slammer: Cool
15:41:41 Slammer: I wish I had for recording into My PC
15:41:45 Slammer: monster tone
15:41:52 Robin: More crazy sounds and smileys for the forum, yeyy!
15:41:55 Slammer: compared to a Zoom G2
15:41:59 Andrew Cockburn: Podxt = Cool
15:42:07 Kristofer Dahl: Pod is awesome I often use it in combination with a real amp when recording
15:42:09 Smikey2006: lol i need to buy something to record with
15:42:12 Andrew Cockburn: Senior Memebrs!
15:42:21 Andrew Cockburn: People will try and post more to qualify
15:42:24 Smikey2006: i want to be able to record some of my riffs but i don't know what to buy
15:42:24 jeff: I'm using it through my PA
15:42:32 Slammer: I bought the Zoom H4, but I mainly use it as a USB interface for my PC
15:42:33 Andrew Cockburn: Podxt = Cool !
15:42:35 Smikey2006: oh yea this senior member thing
15:42:36 Robin: aha, I know how we should get more active. Promote everyone that register to senior members! D
15:42:42 Smikey2006: lmao
15:42:56 jeff: Must admit that Andrew and Lavendell convinced me to get it
15:42:57 Robin: Podxt, some kind of recording gear?
15:42:59 Kristofer Dahl: The combination thing is excellent is it gives heavy bottom from the pod which is hard to capture with a microphone
15:43:14 Slammer: Pod is a Effect Box
15:43:21 Andrew Cockburn: So you record both?
15:43:26 Andrew Cockburn: Mic your AMP?
15:43:30 Kristofer Dahl: Pod - amp simulator
15:43:35 Kristofer Dahl: yes
15:43:38 Robin: Aha, ok
15:43:39 Smikey2006: hmm
15:43:42 Andrew Cockburn: Aha .... smart!
15:43:48 Andrew Cockburn: I don;t even have an AMp
15:43:54 Smikey2006: what would be recommended as a first purchase for a recording something or other
15:43:58 Smikey2006: just like a micraphone?
15:44:00 Kristofer Dahl: sometimes I wont mic - I'll use the "Red Box" instead (Hughes and Kettner)
15:44:02 Andrew Cockburn: Podxt -= Cool
15:44:06 jeff: Haven't tried to record both - i'll do that
15:44:17 Andrew Cockburn: That's a speaker/cab simulator right?
15:44:26 Kristofer Dahl: yes - and a fatstic one
15:44:28 Andrew Cockburn: Lets you turn it up loud so you get the tone?
15:44:46 Kristofer Dahl: Ah no thats a hot plate
15:44:54 Boggi: I have a YAMAHA MW10 mixer with USP-input, so I record alot.
15:45:05 Andrew Cockburn: Ya know, I think that now I have the Jem I will explore the avenue of real effects and a real AMP to complement my pod setup
15:45:11 Smikey2006: i have nvr recorded anything by mysef
15:45:12 Kristofer Dahl: the red box just lets you connect the speaker out to the mixer board
15:45:14 Andrew Cockburn: oh ok
15:45:17 Smikey2006: only with my band on a macbook
15:45:33 Kristofer Dahl: Andrew you are right htough - in that most will use a hot plate in ther einorder not to blow the amp
15:45:49 Andrew Cockburn: Interesting
15:45:59 Smikey2006: mhm
15:46:14 Kristofer Dahl: I would like get a fender amp
15:46:20 Slammer: Kris do you know how to play Drums?
15:46:36 Kristofer Dahl: I have nbever got an amp that plays awesome clean tones
15:46:38 Smikey2006: i love my amps
15:46:42 Smikey2006: id never trade it
15:46:43 Andrew Cockburn: I dopnlt know where to start with Amps - need to ask MickeM some questions
15:46:43 Boggi: anyone use a VOX amp ?
15:46:45 Kristofer Dahl: No drums for me - I suck bad at that!
15:46:52 Pavel: ok i am back
15:46:53 Slammer: LOL
15:46:55 Smikey2006: haha high five Kris me too
15:47:05 Kristofer Dahl: Vox valvetrox is awesome!
15:47:10 jeff: I had a Fender Hotrod Deluxe a while ago. It is very touchy.
15:47:14 Andrew Cockburn: Hi Pavel

15:47:43 Kristofer Dahl: That amp sound slike something for me jeff!
15:47:57 Robin: I have a really old Music Man 2x12 Tube amp. I love it. Both johnny wniter and SRV have used the same amp
15:47:58 Andrew Cockburn: My wife will kill me!
15:48:06 Kristofer Dahl: I'd like a soldano to - I figure its one of the best lead amps, or high gain in general!
15:48:17 Slammer: yes CLapton uses one right now
15:48:28 Kristofer Dahl: Basically - I want everything
15:48:32 Slammer: yes
15:48:33 Kristofer Dahl: Thats why I hate gear
15:48:37 Smikey2006: lol its a cheap amp andrew
15:48:37 Andrew Cockburn: LOL
15:48:38 jeff: It was great except that the volume would jump from 2 to 10 at the slightest touch. Not much inbetween
15:48:38 Kristofer Dahl: Take sso much space
15:48:41 Robin: Well said Kris.
15:48:42 Kristofer Dahl:
15:48:46 Smikey2006: just tell her it was a present
15:48:52 Andrew Cockburn: I thought it was because you didn;t care, now I know its because you have really bad GAS!
15:49:04 Robin: just sell all your gear and get a banjo.
15:49:11 Slammer: after 10,000 people sign up Kris might be able to buy whatever he wants
15:49:14 Slammer: LOL
15:49:16 Kristofer Dahl: Well actually it's very hard to answer gear questions - I get loads of them
15:49:17 Robin: haha yeah
15:49:27 Kristofer Dahl: But most are "which is the best amp" etc.
15:49:31 Kristofer Dahl: Impossible to answer
15:49:41 Smikey2006: yea because gear varies depending on what you want\
15:49:53 Smikey2006: anyways guys ill be back in a little bit nice talken to you all incase anyone leaves
15:49:57 Kristofer Dahl: and budget, and what you can find in you area etc.
15:50:02 Robin: gear is about taste really. thats the way I look at it atleast
15:50:02 Slammer: ok cya later
15:50:12 Robin: bye

15:50:41 Kristofer Dahl: Andrew you are spamming!
15:50:43 Slammer: Nah
15:50:44 jeff: The good thing about buying nice guitar is that it will hold it's value.

15:51:13 Kristofer Dahl: hehe
15:51:15 Kristofer Dahl:

15:51:23 Andrew Cockburn: Just kidding
15:51:29 Kristofer Dahl: You did it!
15:51:33 Andrew Cockburn: lol
15:51:40 Slammer: *whip*
15:51:50 Slammer: MODS are here
15:51:57 Pavel: i am here
15:52:04 jeff: I need to know what does PODxt =?
15:52:06 Pavel: but i am weak on gear subject...
15:52:12 Andrew Cockburn: um .... Cool!!
15:52:19 Slammer: Yes!
15:52:29 Kristofer Dahl: PAvel can you let us knwo what lessons oyu have planed?
15:52:35 Slammer: yes!
15:52:41 Pavel: i just finisehd recording Rock Rhythm and Solo 7
15:52:48 Andrew Cockburn: ALt Picking @ 3000 bpm?
15:52:50 Pavel: i'll upload it tomorrow....
15:52:50 Robin: more sweeping lessons please
15:52:57 Kristofer Dahl: Cool!
15:53:10 Slammer: pfff, i'd say 3,500 bpm
15:53:10 Kristofer Dahl: Ah yes we haven't had sweeping from you for a while!
15:53:13 Pavel: and than comes some more Sweep picking - 3-string shapes - someshape extends and variations...
15:53:33 Andrew Cockburn: Oops - I'm still working on a couple of basic sweeps - 5 string and 3 string
15:53:36 jeff: Pavel - you must have made all of the last three lessons at once. You had the same shirt!lol
15:53:42 Andrew Cockburn: oh and a new 2 string one that Pavel helped me with
15:53:47 Slammer: or he doesn;t do laundry?
15:53:54 Slammer: LOL
15:53:55 Slammer: jk
15:53:57 Andrew Cockburn: hE has loits of shorts the same?
15:54:00 Kristofer Dahl: My impression is that sweeping seems to be the one specific technique that gets asked for the most - considering mail requests I get
15:54:03 Pavel: it's just the shirt i am using for the lessons now - it goes with the background and guitaqr color
15:54:07 jeff: I can't get those smiley icon to work
15:54:24 Andrew Cockburn: Sweeping for me ha been the hardest technique to master
15:54:24 Pavel: Kristofer Dahl - really?? ok cool
15:54:27 jeff: LOL
15:54:30 Slammer: I never really see Kris Sweep much
15:54:43 Robin: I find speedpicking harder than sweeping, actually
15:54:46 Andrew Cockburn: He has moved on frinm such simple things
15:54:46 Kristofer Dahl: Thats because I suck at it!
15:54:54 Robin: but then again, I havent been practicing either of those 2 techniques that much
15:54:59 Pavel: Andrew Cockburn - maybe because you don't really want to use it - i mean do you really plan on playing crazy Rusty Cooely sweeping solos?
15:55:00 Kristofer Dahl: Or yeah - ANdrew is right!
15:55:07 Andrew Cockburn: Lol
15:55:25 Kristofer Dahl: Andrew wah make a harsh joke!
15:55:28 Pavel: now it's really important - i wanted to master it badly and it was the only thing i practiced for 6 months
15:55:29 Andrew Cockburn: Pavel - I'm never going to play like Rusty, but I would like to be able to throw some sweeps in occasionally like SV
15:55:34 Pavel: Sweeping ONLY - 6 hours a day
15:55:36 Pavel: nothign else
15:55:39 Slammer: but... Kris is the Guitar Master... he doesn't suck at anything
15:55:57 Slammer: Guitar Master Class!
15:56:04 Kristofer Dahl: Slammer: That's a misconseption I suck at loads of stuff just like evryone lese
15:56:13 Slammer: but GMC!
15:56:13 Kristofer Dahl: Only I dont show it (most of the time)
15:56:16 Slammer: LOL
15:56:16 jeff: Pavel - Don't tell my wife you are teaching me to sweep. I'll be cleaning the house.
15:56:28 Pavel: jeff - rofl
15:56:37 Kristofer Dahl: jeff: haha
15:56:44 Andrew Cockburn: lol
15:56:46 Slammer: honey, what are you doiing? "I'm taking sweeping lessons from Pavel"
15:56:53 Robin:
15:57:19 Pavel: btw. that sweeping lesson also contains a CRAZY legato run in the end
15:57:31 Pavel: 5-string legato run just like Satch does it
15:57:47 Kristofer Dahl: Actually the reason I havent swept is bcause I always wanted to play arpeggios only with the left hand
15:58:04 Slammer: hey pavel do you ever do 8 finger Tapping?
15:58:19 Kristofer Dahl: Its a very useful technique - Holdsworth style
15:58:30 Pavel: no i don't
15:58:40 Pavel: tapping is i guess my weakest techniwue
15:58:43 Pavel: technique*
15:58:43 Slammer: I think Andrew can!
15:58:44 jeff: Kris - thanks by the way for that legato stuff you show. I never used it before until now and it helps tremendously!
15:58:55 Andrew Cockburn: not me!
15:59:02 Slammer: Robin?
15:59:08 Robin: no way
15:59:23 Slammer: Sean Coklin
15:59:24 Kristofer Dahl: Jeff - whats even worse is that I find that it greatly increases the tone of some picked stuff, odly enough
15:59:25 Robin: I'm a rockin' bluesman... nothing else
15:59:25 Slammer: maybe
15:59:31 Slammer: me too
15:59:52 Slammer: Us Blues Players don't get no Love, People only resect the Shredders
16:00:08 Robin:
16:00:08 Andrew Cockburn: brb guys
16:00:11 jeff: Yeah, it almost makes it a warmer sound.
16:00:17 Kristofer Dahl: what is brb

16:00:40 Robin: learn2talk computer language
16:00:58 Kristofer Dahl: Only at UG you would get that for saying hello
16:01:02 Kristofer Dahl:
16:01:10 Robin: Ahh... Beautiful memories. "l2p" or "learn2play" is so awesome.
16:01:16 Robin: typical internet gaming
16:01:19 Pavel: hahaha sounds like a very "friendly" comunity
16:01:23 Robin: l2p nub
16:01:32 Slammer: wtf?
16:01:34 jeff: I'm glad Kris asked instead of me

16:02:52 Kristofer Dahl: that's GMC
16:02:53 Robin:

16:09:03 rokchik: not yet
16:09:10 rokchik: hey andrew
16:09:23 Kristofer Dahl: This is actaully a topic Henrik and I have been discussing
16:09:49 Kristofer Dahl: In my opinion most guitar forums are so harsh and sexist I would never set my foot there is I where a girl
16:09:59 rokchik: I checked on the Cirle of Fifths lesson today...I think I need to read a few more times
16:10:06 Slammer: but GMC is too new and Cool for that
16:10:06 Robin: thats internet Kris..
16:10:19 rokchik: Kris I agree...this is actually the first forum I ever posted on
16:10:23 Kristofer Dahl: But I think we have chances of changing that here
16:10:24 Robin: Man, girls that play wow/cs/online games cant get a minute of peace aha
16:10:43 Robin: geeks are crazy.
16:10:46 Kristofer Dahl: SO our plan is the following:
16:11:11 Kristofer Dahl: Sometime after this summer, we will add an option in the profile field
16:11:17 Kristofer Dahl: male/female
16:11:25 Slammer: you know what you should do... on the Main Page where you have Pictures of Jimmie, and those Other guys. You should put a Picture of a Girl Member
16:11:38 Kristofer Dahl: then we will have a bord which only allows girls and instructors
16:11:38 Slammer: LOL
16:11:53 Pavel: That's a man talking!! haha
16:11:57 rokchik: That sounds really interesting Kris
16:11:59 Pavel: Thats great idea hahaha
16:12:15 Kristofer Dahl: Well Pavel my intent wasnt the one you though about
16:12:17 Kristofer Dahl:
16:12:20 Pavel: hahahahahaha
16:12:23 Andrew Cockburn: lol
16:12:29 Pavel: *slap*
16:12:47 jeff: lol lol
16:12:52 Kristofer Dahl: But rather to have a place where girls wont feel like they're alone
16:12:59 Pavel: i think the JEM owners will agree!!!
16:13:03 Kristofer Dahl: Plus it will perhaps make more girls register at the forum
16:13:13 Robin: sounds like a good idea
16:13:14 rokchik: If done right may lead to more females getting involved on the forum
16:13:20 Andrew Cockburn: Jem ownsers unite!
16:13:22 Pavel: hahaha guys don't take this serious i am jsut kidding!!!
16:13:30 Slammer: two of you!
16:13:41 Pavel: it may sound like i am a maniac chasing girls all day long but i really like to have fun
16:13:45 Kristofer Dahl: rok: Yes I hope so - I know we have a whole bunch of female users but they simply wont show up at the forum
16:13:53 Robin: haha
16:13:56 Kristofer Dahl: And its udnerstandable
16:14:20 Pavel: i think we need to find a girl instructor
16:14:23 Slammer: because girls are suppose to cook and Clean, At least that's what were told
16:14:27 Slammer: LOL
16:14:29 jeff: Kris in drag... lol
16:14:30 Pavel: it would encourage the girls to show up
16:14:33 rokchik: boys can be intimidateing...LOL
16:14:38 Kristofer Dahl: hehe
16:14:44 Pavel: hahahah
16:14:44 Robin: hey
16:14:46 Robin: guys
16:14:48 Robin: I got an idea
16:14:55 Kristofer Dahl: Well my girlfrined Maria is handling the support for the site
16:15:01 Andrew Cockburn: Well however we manage it, I think it would be great to encourage more girls
16:15:04 Kristofer Dahl: She is also working on the new wiki
16:15:07 Robin: what if... I just wear make up and dress up like a girl! I can make a lesson, I have long hair!
16:15:13 Robin: (anything to wear a dress >_>
16:15:28 Slammer: Guitar Master Drag
16:15:29 Robin: and my name should be... Robeline
16:15:31 Robin:
16:15:48 Kristofer Dahl: She will soon introduce herself at the forum so we will at least have a girl "staff" member
16:15:56 Slammer: well, Robin already is a Girls name...
16:15:57 Pavel: hehe cool Kris!
16:15:59 rokchik: This is prbably why more girls don't show up...why do we want to see you in drag....LOL
16:16:07 Slammer: LOL
16:16:08 Robin: ah thats right not in norway though
16:16:16 rokchik: lol
16:16:22 Robin: thats awesome kris
16:16:25 Kristofer Dahl: Yes even this discussion egts slightly sexist
16:16:31 Robin: what style does she play?
16:16:56 rokchik: plus alot of time men don't take what we have to say seriously...but I must say i haven't had that problem here.
16:17:03 Slammer: is she a Crazy Shredder?
16:17:44 Kristofer Dahl: rok: Yes one again I believe we have good prospect of getting a more equal discussion here
16:17:58 rokchik: The few guys i've talked too on this site have been pretty cool and very helpful
16:18:11 Slammer: pfff. Jennifer Braaten can kick 90% of the Men's Asses!
16:18:23 Kristofer Dahl: Thats great
16:18:39 Andrew Cockburn: ... but its not a competition
16:18:48 Kristofer Dahl: I really dont see a reason why we shouldnt be able to communicate nromally over the internet just like we do in real life
16:19:00 Slammer: LOL
16:19:03 Slammer: cool
16:19:09 Slammer: brb
16:19:14 rokchik: True that Kris
16:19:16 jeff: All of us guys know that women rule the world. We just have egos that won't admit it.
16:19:28 rokchik: LOL Jeff
16:19:58 Pavel: i ams orry for interrupting but i just can't find the topic i asked this question in....
16:20:04 Kristofer Dahl: Rok - I think the first girls showing up (=you) will have to show a lot of patience and understanding
16:20:08 Pavel: Kris - what internet speed do you have and how much do you pay for it?
16:20:42 Kristofer Dahl: 100mbs fiber, it's 40 usd per month I believe
16:20:50 Robin: crazy...
16:20:54 Pavel: It's bargain!!!!
16:20:57 Pavel: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
16:20:59 Robin: In norway we pay more for 4mbit.
16:21:01 Kristofer Dahl: yes it good
16:21:02 Andrew Cockburn: Sweden rocks!
16:21:49 Pavel: i pay 30$ for 1mbit
16:21:51 rokchik: Kris...yeah I know. It's just I think this site is really great and I'd really like the other girls on here to know that the forum is a pretty nice place to hang out. Guitar talk is not gender specific
16:21:56 jeff: JEM owners, do you find the scalloped fret's (20 -24?) helpful?
16:22:14 Pavel: yes they help bending and tapping high frets
16:22:19 Andrew Cockburn: They seem to make your fingering a little surer for the high notes
16:22:27 Kristofer Dahl: rok - I wonder if there something else we can do earlier, before we gat that new board feature
16:22:51 Slammer: Let Ladies Join Free!
16:22:53 jeff: I have a 24 fret PRS and the higher notes seem to die a little faster
16:23:02 Slammer: LOL
16:23:03 Kristofer Dahl: Slammer
16:23:08 Kristofer Dahl: yes that's an idea
16:23:29 Pavel: jeff - it's normal
16:23:29 Andrew Cockburn: Positive descriminantion always smacks of desparation to me ...
16:23:39 Slammer: dude, but then All the Guys will Get there Girlfriends/Wives do it for them LOL
16:23:45 Kristofer Dahl: And this would of course lead to cheating
16:23:48 Pavel: because the distance between the finger and the bridge is shorter and that makes the number of vibrations lower
16:23:51 Slammer: if it's free
16:23:53 Pavel: so it "dies" faster
16:24:00 rokchik: The new board is a great idea...maybe a little mention of the upcoming features on the home page... witha link to the forum for updates. That way you have to at least go to the forum to check it out. maybe they'd be more apt to look around.
16:24:17 rokchik: just a thought
16:24:20 Andrew Cockburn: And as someone else said, more girls on the introppages
16:24:34 Kristofer Dahl: Ye swe could make some kind of link to your post
16:24:48 Andrew Cockburn: And RokChik quoted on the front
16:24:55 Kristofer Dahl: I got an idea
16:25:06 jeff: Pavel -Maybe I mis-stated. Closer together frets are harder to hit for me
16:25:12 Kristofer Dahl: Something which could be done right away
16:25:45 Kristofer Dahl: is to iclude something about this in the welcome email new subscribers get
16:25:47 Pavel: it's like that for all Jeff - you just have to keep fingers vertically and that's the only way to make it easier
16:25:50 jeff: maybe i need to work on finger placement at higher frets
16:25:54 rokchik: Hey Mat
16:25:56 mattacuk: hello everyone !
16:26:00 Pavel: hey Matt
16:26:02 Slammer: mattachuk!
16:26:12 mattacuk: Hello hello !!!
16:26:14 Kristofer Dahl: as I said I know we have female visitors but they just wont show up at the ofurm
16:26:18 Andrew Cockburn: Hey Matt
16:26:19 mattacuk:
16:26:20 Kristofer Dahl: hello MAtt
16:26:26 mattacuk: HELLO My friends!
16:26:27 Robin: hi
16:26:27 Slammer: Mattachuk is Bucketheads biggest fan
16:26:40 jeff: Pavel - do you find that you place thumb farther down at those frets?
16:26:42 mattacuk: I am ,but dont forget paul gilbert
16:26:43 rokchik: That would be really good Kris... I know when I started I was a bit weery of the forum but then realized if I was gonna get better I need to talk to others
16:26:44 Slammer: brb
16:26:55 Kristofer Dahl: For instance we could just point them toward the three active grils we have got
16:27:16 Pavel: jeff - no
16:27:27 Pavel: ok guys - let's split into rooms
16:27:31 Andrew Cockburn: ANd later on, a section about girl members featuring the titles of the last few posts in the girls forum ...
16:27:37 Pavel: the "girls" discussion and the playing discussion
16:27:44 jeff: I'll take a closer look at your videos - thanks!
16:27:53 Kristofer Dahl: or even better lets just put a bord up for girls before we get the profile feature
16:28:00 Andrew Cockburn: yes
16:28:03 mattacuk: have I missed all the action?
16:28:11 rokchik: yeah just stuff to make us girls feel I said before you boys can be kind of intimidating..LOL
16:28:41 rokchik: but I feel welcome
16:28:57 jeff: Mattacuk - yes. You have now been relegated to the girls chatroom. lol
16:28:58 mattacuk: us boys aint so bad
16:29:05 Kristofer Dahl: rok - so maybe just a few word sin that email would be enough, saying something like" Are you are girl? Don't forget to register at the forum"
16:29:07 mattacuk: jeff thats ok lol
16:29:19 Andrew Cockburn: Hey Jeff, I think you were supposed to follow Pavel
16:29:23 Kristofer Dahl: I think we will go for that
16:29:24 mattacuk: so im offical one of the girls eh!
16:29:39 mattacuk: can I have my own Bucketchat ?
16:29:42 Andrew Cockburn: Good first step
16:29:44 jeff: LOL
16:29:45 mattacuk: lol
16:30:18 rokchik: Yeah Kris that sounds perfect...just something to get them interested. I mean they are only going to post if they want but I find the forum just as important as the lessons
16:30:48 Kristofer Dahl: Ok - good conslusion here! Promise me to think more about it when fishing!
16:30:55 mattacuk: fishing rocks!
16:30:57 Andrew Cockburn: Rok - do you think enforcing women only would make it more inviting, or is having a women board enough?
16:31:08 Kristofer Dahl: Sure does!
16:31:10 mattacuk: I am a fly fisherman
16:31:17 Kristofer Dahl: Good question Andrew
16:31:19 mattacuk: trout mainly,

Posted by: Kristofer Dahl Jun 29 2007, 11:37 AM

16:31:19 mattacuk: trout mainly,
16:31:38 Robin: I like to fish at sea mostly. probably becuase I've never bothered to learn fly fishing
16:31:57 mattacuk: i would recommend it, its an amaizing experince
16:32:21 Robin: yeah I've been once. I was mostly just practcing thrownig around, didnt get any fish.
16:32:34 mattacuk: lol
16:32:34 rokchik: I'll will Kris....while reeling in my 10 lb laker....Andrew what do you mean?
16:32:56 Robin: I saw this fly fishing DVD, man its beatuiful. All alone on a river or a "water"
16:33:00 mattacuk: ummm, is pavel in there talking to himself?
16:33:08 Robin: I think so &gt;_&lt;
16:33:10 rokchik: Fly fishing is great
16:33:23 Andrew Cockburn: I was just wondering if you think a Female only board would be more enticing than a genrall access board intended for women
16:33:33 mattacuk: i like the stalking eliment of flyfishing, and being in the water
16:33:43 Andrew Cockburn: A women only board would be provate to the female members + instructors
16:34:03 Andrew Cockburn: Whereas the generall board would be open to men to view/post
16:34:09 Kristofer Dahl: Well basically we have the alternative of only allowing people at the girls board that have check "female" in their profile (when we'll have that feature) - OR we sould just make a standard board for girls but where anyone is allowed. We're in other words hopinf that people will be nice and follow the rules
16:34:43 Kristofer Dahl: You got two parallell explanation there (good song title)
16:34:48 Robin: Kris. Make a girls forum, but as you say, everyone can acces, but if someone acts stupid, just ban them for a few days.
16:34:48 Andrew Cockburn: LOL
16:34:50 Robin: from the forum
16:34:58 rokchik: that may help in breaking the ice. May be less intimidating for some I would think.
16:35:16 Andrew Cockburn: I am just thinking that some girls might be intimidated that guys can even see what the post ...
16:35:19 Kristofer Dahl: Ok - Robins alternative is doable right away
16:35:31 Kristofer Dahl: Andrew aha
16:35:32 Slammer: but the Girl only Forum might be boring, with only 5 or so girls
16:35:51 mattacuk: i like mixing with everyone personally
16:35:54 Kristofer Dahl: Slammer: all forums are like that in the beginning, ther eis no way around it
16:36:10 Andrew Cockburn: But Matt - they might not like mixing with you is the point
16:36:15 mattacuk: lol
16:36:16 Kristofer Dahl: hehe
16:36:19 mattacuk: well, who would lol
16:36:25 Andrew Cockburn: Didn;t mean that in a bad way but we are thingking that some girls might be initmidated
16:36:34 Kristofer Dahl: Allthough Matt is an extremely nice guy!
16:36:40 mattacuk:
16:36:43 Andrew Cockburn: Of course, one of the best
16:36:45 Slammer: "the Ladies of GMC hangout board"
16:36:47 Slammer: LOL
16:36:53 mattacuk: Matt has one painfull index finger
16:37:04 rokchik: It's a tricky subject...I mean you can't force people to post so maybe the female board that everyone can access would be great....or even just a section on the actuall forum would suffice
16:37:24 Kristofer Dahl: rok - that' san idea too
16:37:37 Kristofer Dahl: just add that section to the main board!
16:37:41 mattacuk: yes
16:37:49 Robin: maybe you can also throw out this thing on the main page "Don't forget to register at our forums! Everyone is welcome"
16:37:51 rokchik: instead of dedicating an entire forum for a few...just include in the many
16:37:52 mattacuk: i think a girls section on the main bord would be best
16:37:53 Kristofer Dahl: What would we call such a board
16:38:07 mattacuk: Ladies licks?!
16:38:09 Robin: "Don't forget to register at our Friendly forums" maybe
16:38:11 mattacuk:
16:38:17 Andrew Cockburn: Bad Mattt!
16:38:20 rokchik: Rock Chicks...just kidding
16:38:20 Slammer: the Ladies of GMC hangout board!!

17:07:10 Andrew Cockburn: excellent
17:07:14 Andrew Cockburn: I'm too lazy to do that
17:07:18 Andrew Cockburn: I play by ear !

17:33:17 Robin: yeah, I love it too, the few times we get it
17:33:21 rokchik: yeah it's kinda weird for us too
17:33:26 rokchik: but I'll take it
17:33:36 Robin: whats fun here, in the summer, the sun is up 24/7
17:33:48 Robin: so its really nice when its sunny, gets kinda orange at night
17:33:49 rokchik: Wow you are north
17:33:58 Robin: north norway yes
17:34:12 Robin: and in the winter... The sun is down almost 24/7
17:34:23 rokchik: I'm not that far but the sun sets at like 11 pm and rises at like 4 so not too bad in the summer
17:34:32 Robin: ok cool
17:34:46 rokchik: winter....sets at 4pm rises at like 8 am
17:35:16 rokchik: So you are like THE blues man here aren't ya
17:35:34 Robin: haha
17:35:42 Robin: well I'm no expert
17:35:55 Robin: I'm pretty new to the blues. started around last christmas
17:36:02 rokchik: I've just started getting into the blues myself
17:36:10 Robin: but the blues made me play guitar. Well, actually I started 4 years before that, but I didnt really play
17:36:15 Robin: its awesome
17:36:19 rokchik: never really like it before I started playing guitar
17:36:21 Robin: what do you listen to atm?
17:36:24 Robin: indeed.
17:36:57 Robin: but I mostly play blues so I concider myself a "bluesman"
17:37:03 Robin: and its my favorite genre.
17:37:06 Robin: to listen to
17:37:21 rokchik: Blues wise...Muddy waters and BB King mostly with a bit of Clapton. But in General I'm a classic rock, 80's RATM kinda girl
17:37:35 Robin: ah muddy waters indeed. I was just about to mention him
17:37:39 rokchik: how bout yourself
17:38:26 Robin: muddy waters, johnny winter, john lee hooker, stevie ray vaughan, bb king, omar and the howlers and alot of random stuff. But I'm waiting for 4 really old school blues CD's that I have ordered
17:38:38 Robin: buddy guy, howlin wolf, hubert sumlin and uhmm.. dont remember
17:38:45 Robin: RATM you say. I love that band
17:39:14 rokchik: I'm a Tom Morello could probably tell by most of my posts
17:39:36 Robin: aha, thats who you got in your avatar?
17:40:01 rokchik: I listened to a lot of hip hop before I started playing and he does an amazing job incorporating it into his guitar playing
17:40:07 Robin: Rage against the machine, their selftitled album is so awesome. Its perfect.
17:40:21 Robin: yeah RATM got some hip hop in it, the vocals specially. and I lLOVE it
17:40:41 rokchik: yep,....apparently it is very confusing...most people think I'm a dude because of it. I should change it to Joan Jett or sometihing
17:41:05 rokchik: the first LP is Genius
17:41:29 rokchik: so how long you been playing?
17:42:24 Robin: 2sec phone &gt;_&lt;

17:44:30 Robin: I've been playing for about 4.5 years
17:44:40 Robin: but the 4 first years was mostly computer gaming
17:44:56 Robin: so I would say that I REALLY started when I dicovered GMC; january this year
17:45:42 rokchik: Yeah I started about 2 years ago but only really seriously since I joined GMC
17:45:53 Robin: yeah GMC is a lifesaver for many guitarist

17:46:17 rokchik: LOL
