QUOTE (TheOldOnes @ Sep 12 2008, 12:47 PM) *
Thanks Kevvyg - I just bought the computer 3 weeks ago to serve as a distraction while my arm heals up from tendinitis (3 weeks and counting - nightmarish!). Looking at the specs, it looks quite capable of handling anything out there at the moment. I'll soon be picking up a Line 6 PodXT or Pod 3 (I haven't broken the news to my wife yet so I am trying to figure out how to get one after getting a new guitar 2 months ago and a new computer last month - it looks like I may be mortgaging several future Xmas'.

Yeah, I love Rush - I picked up lots of little Rush licks over the years but I only know the rhythm tracks for a few songs. I think the recent call for lessons on things like the solo for Working Man may be a nice call.

Glad I could be of assistance!
Not sure what a Line 6 PodXT is! I'm guessing it's an effects unit (I'll Google it!). I'm still using an ME5. It's quite old now, but still going strong.

I'll have to try that. I wrote a topic a few days ago about getting discouraged, and this will help too.


I spelled my username wrong...I didn't even think that was possible!

Look at the topic for my guitar...
Finished Guitar Build

Homemade strat (You still need to look at its topic!)
Squier strat (probably going to get rid of it and get another guitar instead) :)
Line 6 spider amp (not actually used for anything, just acts as a speaker)
Digitech Gnx2 (kind of old, but cheap, and sounds amazing!)

This is an excellent discussion, with lots of good tips for everyone! I myself work slightly different in that i will work on peices untill I have actually nailed them, even if it takes a year or more (often does). I also have a few lessons on the go at any one time smile.gif

This wont work for everyone, and its important to find a practice routine to suit you, which it seems to me most of you have smile.gif
