I have a few exercises I do on occasion to try and work up my pinky. It's not a finger I heavily use in my playing (not too much of a shred dude). But I think I want to work it to a really good spot.

I did a search but didn't see anything DIRECTLY for the pinky.

I wonder. . . .

Just wonder. . . .

I know we have different tastes and styles here at GMC. . . .

But do you think we could come up with a general consensus on a top 10 list?

Probably a looooong shot, but this forum is a really nice, safe place. I bet we could come up with something.


Top 10 guitar pedals
Top 10 Van Halen Songs
Top 10 metal albums

What do you think?

First I'll start with this!

I've played in a lot of bands covering a lot of genres. When those lights hit you on stage and you feel the crowd perk up, you can't stop your adrenaline from pumping!! It's one of the greatest feelings in the world. I was in a band that had a bit of traction and for months I was told, "we need to REALLY make this show count", which would bring me a lot of anxiety. But slowly I learned how to redirect that anxiety into workable energy.

But other people take all this anxiety and adrenaline to another place. I've played with dudes who couldn't play with out drinking before to help their nerves. Then there are times when they are just a complete drunken embarrassment. ( NOTHING is worse than playing with a drunk drummer. )

But what's your worst experience with a fellow band member? Or have YOU been the bad band member? smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif

This is a good article. Talks about the 80/20 Rule. It's aimed towards engineering but I think there's a lot you can take away from it as a musician and guitarist.

The Myth of a Thousand Little Choices

For me, it helps to focus on clearing my head from the minute details and work with the bigger picture. I also score for some projects and my hardest part is just getting started. I think I will try this next time.

So a friend of mine and I have a healthy gear competitiveness. We probably both loose in the end by buying too much gear, but it's been a lot of fun trying to beat each other to finding gear we're both interested in.

So a few months ago I had been craving a Les Paul again. My Firebird took the place of my les paul when I ended up in a deal I couldn't turn down. I had finally been grasping the difference between the different types (standard, custom etc) and landed on a les paul traditional that I was really vibing with. Dug the heavier weight and big round neck. Held tune well. Pickups were cool, but had a little nasty thing in the top end of the bridge. I never got a chance to check it on a few different amps to see if it was the pickups or the amp I was playing on.

I have a good buddy who works for Guitar Center in Nashville who was telling me he could get a goldtop for a steal for me. Which complicated things.

My plans got put on a halt when I went back to the store and it was gone and I wasn't completely sold on the goldtop, because I couldn't play on it first.

So next thing I know, my buddy now has the LP bug, and buys one. He got a Les Paul Signature T model. Which I had never heard of. Played it today and it's really rad. 60's style neck, little on the lighter side, 57 classics. Very different than my Traditional.

Anyone know much about these Signature T LPs?
