11:15:44 Andrew Cockburn: hows it hangin
11:15:57 Iluha: someone ever told you that you look a bit like the guitarists from Tenacious D?
11:16:04 Andrew Cockburn: never
11:16:07 Iluha: guitarist*
11:16:36 Iluha: in that picture in your avatar you do, atleast in my opinion .. im all fine, a bit sick, how bout you?
11:16:52 Andrew Cockburn: cool, just hangin out
11:17:18 Iluha: what the?
11:17:29 Iluha: steve vai's new album coming out in two weeks, yay
11:17:49 Iluha: and it's a double album
11:18:12 Andrew Cockburn: cool - i just got alien
11:18:18 Andrew Cockburn: my first vai album
11:19:29 Andrew Cockburn: I was just watching a vid on youtube
11:19:30 Iluha: i never actually bought an album, any album because iv'e been preety much economicly reliant on my parent till now
11:19:38 Andrew Cockburn: about his bulgarian influenced piece
11:19:47 Andrew Cockburn: I have thousands
11:19:53 Andrew Cockburn: been buying them for 25 years
11:20:04 Iluha: freak show excess i was the one who mentioned it on the thread
11:20:08 Andrew Cockburn: yes
11:20:13 Andrew Cockburn: thatwas it - awesome
11:20:35 Iluha: well, once ill get out of the army(in about 2 years) and start making money im planning on getting atleast 1 album a month
11:20:44 Andrew Cockburn: Good start
11:20:57 Andrew Cockburn: You'll build up a collection pretty quickly
11:21:06 Iluha: i might pre order he's new album now though
11:21:08 Andrew Cockburn: Go for quality not quantity
11:21:19 Andrew Cockburn: I want a Jem like his
11:21:27 Andrew Cockburn: Pavel has convinced me
11:21:33 Iluha: heheh..
11:21:50 Iluha: this guy that workes in a guitar shop in my town has a jem
11:21:58 Iluha: it's all beat up i feel sorry for it
11:22:13 Andrew Cockburn: how could you mistreat a guitar like that ??
11:22:58 Iluha: I'm the wrong person to ask I also mistreat my guitar.
11:23:06 Iluha: I got an RG prestige
11:23:16 Iluha: and I kinda negated the floyd rose heheh...
11:23:23 Andrew Cockburn: oops!
11:23:33 Andrew Cockburn: I want a guitar with a decent floating tremelo
11:23:41 Iluha: and I got it for 4 years now
11:23:45 Andrew Cockburn: COUld get an RG prestige, but would prefer a Jem
11:23:49 Iluha: I changed strings maybe 4 times
11:23:59 Andrew Cockburn: once a year?
11:24:05 Iluha: yeah something like that
11:24:47 Iluha: Well yeah I think a jem is better but not any jem
11:25:19 Andrew Cockburn: Jem 7v
11:25:24 Andrew Cockburn: in white
11:25:29 Iluha: I saw some jems that come with exactly the same pickups as my guitar, but my guitar costed about 250$ less
11:25:30 Andrew Cockburn: not the 555
11:25:53 Andrew Cockburn: The cheaper Jem is a waste - I'd rather have an RG prestige
11:25:59 Andrew Cockburn: the 7v is the real thing though
11:26:05 Iluha: yeah the jem 7v is awesome I think
11:26:29 Iluha: My dream guitar is a Paul Gilbert sig guitar
11:26:39 Iluha: but that's only because I dont get along with floyd rose
11:26:51 Andrew Cockburn: lol - I really want an FR
11:27:03 Iluha: what's an FR?
11:27:07 Andrew Cockburn: Floyd ROse
11:27:11 Iluha: oh
11:27:27 Iluha: most people seems to figure out how to get along with it
11:27:31 Iluha: I'm not one of them
11:28:00 Andrew Cockburn: I've restrung many guitars hundereds of times - with tremelos, without - never an FR but how hard can it be?
11:28:20 Andrew Cockburn: I think it is daunting to smeone that hasn't restrung a guitar before
11:28:24 Iluha: it involves alot of twiting and turning
11:28:32 Andrew Cockburn: yeah
11:28:34 Iluha: twisting*
11:28:44 Iluha: because you need to play with those springs
11:28:51 Andrew Cockburn: I'm up for it - they haven;t made a guitar I can;t restring yet - I satrted when I was 10
11:29:07 Iluha: I never restrung a guitar myself
11:29:24 Iluha: because I tried once restringing my Classical guitar
11:29:34 Iluha: and now I can't turn the tunning pegs :x
11:29:36 Andrew Cockburn: Electics are easy - nylon string is the hardest
11:30:01 Iluha: You have any idea what could be the problem with it?
11:30:21 Andrew Cockburn: if you can;t turn the tuning pegs - are they jammed somehow?
11:30:34 Iluha: I can turn them to loosen the strings
11:30:38 Andrew Cockburn: never had that problem
11:30:40 Iluha: but i can't turn them to tighten them
11:30:45 Andrew Cockburn: hmm
11:30:55 Andrew Cockburn: sounds like the tuners are worn
11:31:15 Andrew Cockburn: or do you have the strings waaaay too tight?
11:31:22 Iluha: I dont think so
11:31:36 Iluha: because the strings are still about 2 or maybe more steps below standard tuning
11:31:39 Andrew Cockburn: try a little light oil on the worm gears
11:31:52 Andrew Cockburn: sometimes they get driesd our
11:31:55 Andrew Cockburn: dried
11:32:37 Iluha: oh ok will try that ... I actually thought of that when it happend but I just forgot about the guitar heheh... thanks.
11:33:03 Andrew Cockburn: let me know how it works out!
11:33:57 Iluha: that frensesco ferari guy is of those reasons that shredding gets a bad name
11:34:13 Andrew Cockburn: Yes indeed - mindless speed with no musical content
11:34:48 Andrew Cockburn: I'd be happy to play at a 10th of that speed if I can get some good musical ideas across
11:35:10 Iluha: yeah..
11:35:35 Iluha: jessus sometimes I feel ignored on the forums, my topic got 30 views and not even one reply
11:35:50 Andrew Cockburn: Which topic was that?
11:35:59 Iluha: on Muse
11:36:00 Andrew Cockburn: Remember, those 30 could all be guests who can;t reply
11:36:42 Iluha: this one
11:36:56 Iluha: I really got into this band lately..

11:38:17 Andrew Cockburn: Hi Suib
11:39:27 Iluha: muse's guitarist\vocalist is a great example that you don't need amazing guitar skills to make good solo's here and there
11:39:35 Andrew Cockburn: very true
11:39:53 Andrew Cockburn: 5 well selected notes beat 100 played really fast with no thought

11:43:48 Andrew Cockburn: that's 1/3 of your monthly income ...
11:44:06 Iluha: yeah
11:44:38 Iluha: If I buy it then i'll have to miss out on 1 party or night at a pub next month
11:44:46 Iluha: but i think it's worth it! *click*
11:44:52 Suib: haha
11:45:01 Andrew Cockburn: lol
11:45:34 Iluha: oh wait what
11:45:41 Iluha: it's mostly hes previous songs
11:45:48 Iluha: but just recorded with orchestra
11:45:54 Suib: o
11:45:58 Suib: no new stuff?
11:45:58 Andrew Cockburn: hmm
11:46:11 Iluha: there's a bit of new stuff
11:46:27 Iluha: 6 new ones I think
11:46:32 Suib: nothing you cant get off itunes
11:46:40 Andrew Cockburn: that's almost an albums worth
11:47:06 Iluha: Yeah and I think that For The Love Of God sounds awesome with an orchestra
11:47:20 Andrew Cockburn: BTW, I enjoyed that Muse track
11:48:10 Iluha: it has a somewhat Innovating sound to it's solo, atleast in my opinion
11:48:46 Andrew Cockburn: Yes, I think it was some sort of synth effect
11:49:31 Iluha: no
11:49:58 Iluha: it's basicly slides and pull off hammer on
11:50:15 Iluha: someone released a perfect tab of it
11:50:44 Andrew Cockburn: cool
11:51:40 Andrew Cockburn: Ive been listeniong to Eric Johnson a lot lately - love his musical and melodic style, bordering on Jazz
11:52:07 Suib: alright i have a question
11:52:15 Iluha: yeah he's one of my favourites
11:52:20 Iluha: he's sound is perfect
11:52:27 Andrew Cockburn: amazing clean sound
11:52:32 Suib: me and a couple of guys are starting a rock/jazz band... do you have any recomended keys for jazz?
11:52:37 Andrew Cockburn: trying to get a patch like it on my Pod but it is hard
11:52:45 Suib: like scales
11:53:01 Andrew Cockburn: Jazz isn;t about scales - they use the same scales as anyone lese
11:53:09 Iluha: oh noo....... the cd will cost me 50$ because of shipping!
11:53:15 Andrew Cockburn: It about phrasing, melodic progressons and chord sequences
11:53:20 Iluha: *cancel*
11:53:23 Andrew Cockburn: $50 !!!!!
11:53:25 Andrew Cockburn: ouch
11:53:25 Suib: lol
11:53:29 Suib: tht sux
11:54:00 Iluha: the shipping costs more then the cd lol
11:54:04 Suib: yeah
11:54:15 Suib: where are you located that it would cost that much
11:54:44 Iluha: in israel
11:54:50 Suib: o
11:54:58 Suib: yeah tht would do it
11:55:02 Iluha: but it doesnt matter any international shipment from that site will cost that much
11:55:21 Suib: o
11:55:50 Iluha: o well I'll just buy it when it gets on other sites like amazon or something
11:56:14 Suib: yeah
11:56:19 Suib: ok im going go
11:56:24 Suib: *going to go
11:56:25 Andrew Cockburn: seeya
11:56:28 Iluha: bye
11:56:39 Andrew Cockburn: and then there were 2
11:57:57 Iluha: I got some suggestion for me maybe on what songs to learn? I need something intermidiate
11:58:08 Iluha: why did I type I
11:58:11 Iluha: i meant you
11:58:38 Andrew Cockburn: lol
11:58:42 Andrew Cockburn: um
11:59:04 Andrew Cockburn: Depends what you like
11:59:17 Iluha: I like preety much everything
11:59:18 Andrew Cockburn: I sy=tarted out on 1 bar blues and then played a lot of Pink Floyd
11:59:24 Andrew Cockburn: 12 bar blues
11:59:27 Iluha: I even like christina Auguilera *hides*
11:59:31 Andrew Cockburn: LOL
11:59:38 Andrew Cockburn: She has a great voice
11:59:45 Iluha: yeah that why I like her
12:00:07 Andrew Cockburn: I just picked up anything I liked the sound of - if I couldn;t play it I came back to it later
12:00:11 Iluha: recently Iv'e started to think that vocal virtousity is actually harder to achive than any instrumental virtuosity
12:00:39 Andrew Cockburn: Vocal virtuosity depends more on what you have to start with, but after that it is practice and technique
12:00:58 Andrew Cockburn: I tried to learn to sing - I could get some of the technique down but I just don;t have aa pleasant sounding voice
12:01:32 Iluha: I'm thinking of taking lessons once I get out of the army
12:01:41 Iluha: But that is along side my plans to learn:
12:01:47 Andrew Cockburn: Definately - you don;t know until you try
12:01:52 Iluha: to play on drums
12:01:56 Andrew Cockburn: lol
12:01:58 Iluha: slap and pop on bass
12:02:03 Iluha: the violin
12:02:04 Iluha: the sax
12:02:08 Iluha: I want alot :[
12:02:11 Andrew Cockburn: Ambitious!
12:02:25 Andrew Cockburn: but you have a long time ahead of you
12:02:29 Iluha: yeah..
12:02:34 Andrew Cockburn: Pace yourself, try something new every couple of years
12:02:36 Iluha: if Nuno could do it I can do it too!
12:02:58 Andrew Cockburn: Drop the things you aren't feeling and keep up with the ones you like
12:03:15 Andrew Cockburn: Violins the hardest
12:03:30 Iluha: realy? I was actually expecting it to be the easiest
12:03:38 Andrew Cockburn: You sound like crapfor 5 years, then one day you are a virtuoso -nothing in between
12:04:15 Iluha: I just seen so many 6 years olds beeing able to play it virtuosly
12:04:19 Andrew Cockburn: Because there are no frets, your pitching has to be absolute;ly exact
12:04:29 Andrew Cockburn: or you sound like an amateur
12:04:36 Andrew Cockburn: and that takes years to get right
12:05:01 Iluha: so maybe I'll leave it till last heheh..
12:05:17 Iluha: oh he got my message!
12:05:43 Andrew Cockburn: Hi Pavel!
12:05:55 Pavel: oh ok now it's ok
12:05:56 Pavel: hey guys!
12:06:08 Iluha: hi pavlo
12:06:16 Pavel: lol "Pavlo"
12:06:57 Andrew Cockburn: What are you up to today Pavel? Another 15 hour practice session ?
12:07:19 Iluha: Pavel, you got a song suggestion for me? I need like an intermidiate shred song
12:07:28 Pavel: already practiced today - jsut finished the new lesson and it's up - waiting for Kris to put it live
12:08:07 Pavel: Intermediate Shred?!?! it's shred or it's not you least how i look at it
12:08:29 Pavel: i don't know what's itermediate - everybody has his own "intermediate" level
12:08:42 Iluha: yeah but I mean song's like Tony Mcalpine's Tears Of Sahara
12:09:07 Pavel: really i don't know because i didn't play somebody's songs for 2 years now...
12:09:10 Andrew Cockburn: He - Pavel always calls himself intermediate - I wish I could be that intermediate!
12:09:48 Pavel: can't you jsut get another Tony's song?
12:10:16 Iluha: he's other songs are really packed with shred this one only has a couple of bits which aren't too complicated
12:11:25 Pavel: well i really don't know
12:11:46 Pavel: Satch is an intermediate shredder so i guess you can try some of his stuff
12:12:31 Iluha: I wouldn't call those crazy legato licks intermidiate
12:12:39 Iluha: well thanks anyways
12:12:45 Pavel: they are not difficult at all if you practice legato
12:12:51 Andrew Cockburn: lol
12:13:06 Pavel: that's why i said - everybody has his own "intermediate" ...
12:13:41 Andrew Cockburn: I think yo are right - everyone wants to be better, so our current level is what we think of as intermediate
12:14:10 Andrew Cockburn: Even Rusty Cooley
12:14:19 Iluha: well, up until a few months ago I would rate myself as a beginer actually
12:14:20 Pavel: Rusty also sais he has tons of thigns to learn....
12:14:34 Iluha: I think there will allways be more to learn
12:14:53 Andrew Cockburn: Yeah, that's how it works. We are beginners for a while, then we get to intermediate and stay there forever
12:15:01 Pavel: hehe
12:15:06 Iluha: steve vai said somewhere " it will take more then a liftime to master the guitar, or any other intrument"
12:15:06 Andrew Cockburn: but our intermediate gets better every week
12:15:29 Pavel: you know you can know how good somebody is comparing to somebody else
12:15:34 Andrew Cockburn: Rught - so if people like SV or RC are saying they can imporove, it has to be all relative
12:15:52 Andrew Cockburn: I guess so - relative
12:16:25 Pavel: Comparing to my city where i live i am a shred god but comparing to Luca Turili or Rusty i am an ULTRA SUCKY BEGINNER
12:16:33 Andrew Cockburn: LOL
12:16:37 Iluha: hehe
12:16:54 Pavel: that's true... sucks doesn't it?
12:17:15 Andrew Cockburn: yep - and its hard to be objective about yourself
12:17:20 Iluha: it took them 10+ years to get to their level
12:17:30 Pavel: Rusty plays for 24 years already
12:17:47 Iluha: it's just a matter of loving it and dedication
12:17:48 Andrew Cockburn: So, you ave another 15 - 20 to get that good
12:17:55 Pavel: yeah hahaha
12:18:02 Andrew Cockburn: my gues is you'll be way better by the time you are his age Pavel
12:18:07 Pavel: i hope i can make it faster hahahaha
12:18:20 Pavel: i guess so because i am learning from him NOW
12:18:25 Andrew Cockburn: Excatly!
12:18:26 Iluha: pavel how long are you playing?
12:18:31 Andrew Cockburn: Every generation gets better
12:18:34 Pavel: yes
12:18:49 Andrew Cockburn: In 20 years, kids just being born will be learning from you
12:19:13 Pavel: i am sure that kid that is 12 years old that joined GMC today (speaking figuratively) will kick my ass in 10 years...
12:19:16 Pavel: that's how it works...
12:19:20 Iluha: pavel how long are you playing?
12:19:28 Andrew Cockburn: "damn, I'm only 12 but I can play better than Rusty Cooley ever did. Gove me 5 years and I'll be able to beat Pavel"
12:19:43 Pavel: electric guitar for 4 and half years
12:19:59 Pavel: hahahahaha i wish i could read that somewhere hahaha
12:20:07 Iluha: wow, I allmost play as much as you.. and i really suck compared to you
12:20:34 Andrew Cockburn: Read Pavel' sig ...
12:20:42 Pavel: you know i have a signature on the forum of Prashant Aswani who said: "It's not how many years you play but how many hours!"
12:20:47 Andrew Cockburn: LOL
12:21:06 Andrew Cockburn: I guess we were thinking the same thing!
12:21:09 Iluha: yeah that is true
12:21:27 Pavel: if you bought a guitar and it is colelcting dust in the room corner - you're not playing it - but you walk around and say: "hey i play guitar for 2 years now!"
12:21:34 Pavel: but actually you maybe played it 2 hours...
12:21:36 Iluha: there has been this one year in which I havn't the guitar, at all
12:21:39 Andrew Cockburn: 4.5 years practicing for an hour a week is not the same as 4.5 years practiving 7 hours a day
12:21:40 Pavel: i think you got the idea...
12:22:01 Iluha: how old are you?
12:22:04 Pavel: 19
12:22:23 Iluha: your younger then me and im learning guitar from you cool
12:22:25 Pavel: And am still very sorry i didn't start playing earlier...
12:22:48 Pavel: but if i didn't move to Croatia i wouldn't start playing ever so i guess i am still ucky...
12:22:57 Iluha: I couldn't sweeps at all until I began practicing you'r lessons
12:23:06 Pavel: cool!
12:23:14 Pavel: Andrew - how are your sweeps doing?
12:23:20 Iluha: where are you originaly from?
12:23:24 Andrew Cockburn: Not good ...
12:23:25 Pavel: Ukraine
12:23:30 Iluha: oh privet!
12:23:33 Pavel: zdarov!
12:23:48 Pavel: ja tak i dumal chto ti nash potomushto imja ne evropejskoe
12:23:51 Iluha: I was born in kazahstan(back when it was the soviet union)
12:24:04 Iluha: moved to israel when i was 3 years old though
12:24:24 Iluha: ya toje znal shto ti ni nastayesh croatian
12:24:38 Iluha: nastayashi*
12:24:48 Pavel: hehe
12:25:12 Iluha: about 70% of my friends are "hahli"
12:25:26 Pavel: haha cool
12:25:39 Pavel: MY F**** GOD!! MY dog jsut started to bite my JEM!!!!!
12:25:43 Pavel: I'm gonna kill him!!!
12:25:45 Iluha: lol
12:25:54 Andrew Cockburn: runb!
12:25:56 Andrew Cockburn: run!
12:25:57 Pavel: He pretty much scarred the head
12:25:58 Andrew Cockburn: Save it!
12:26:04 Andrew Cockburn: shit
12:26:09 Iluha: he bit the head?
12:26:15 Pavel: yes!!!!
12:26:18 Iluha: how did he do that?
12:26:28 Pavel: you know what's the funny thing?? I'm laughing instead of crying right now
12:26:41 Andrew Cockburn: You'll be crying later ...
12:26:47 Andrew Cockburn: YOu are in denial
12:26:56 Pavel: i love my dog too much hahaha
12:27:11 Pavel: my guitar is on my bad right now, and i am turned towards PC so i can't see it
12:27:20 Pavel: and it's low enough for my dog to reach it
12:27:23 Iluha: that was my guess
12:28:09 Pavel: well i was not planning to sell it anyway - this guitar will always be in my colelction
12:28:23 Iluha: my dog would never bite my guitar hes afraid of it
12:28:40 Andrew Cockburn: It will make a great interview question when you are famous
12:28:48 Pavel: Maybe i sell my JEM to Andrew when i get famous ha?? 10,000$ lol lol lol
12:29:17 Pavel: yeah - interview with InstrumentalCase haha
12:29:24 Iluha: lol
12:29:45 Iluha: dave sometimes really scares me *hopes he doesnt see this*
12:29:45 Pavel: i think he can make an interview by just reading the chat logs - he has all answers here hahaha
12:29:55 Andrew Cockburn: lol
12:30:14 Andrew Cockburn: He'll make a joke video using footage from all your lessons and a voice over ...
12:30:25 Pavel: hahaha right hahaha great idea
12:30:39 Andrew Cockburn: My name is Pavel - I am your god!
12:30:43 Andrew Cockburn: lol
12:30:46 Pavel: "Check this shit!"
12:30:49 Iluha: hes dragonforce movie was sweet but hes yngwie movie sucked
12:30:50 Pavel: like Yngwie hahaha
12:30:52 Andrew Cockburn: lol
12:31:17 Pavel: i pissed my pants watchign Yngwie movies hahahaha
12:31:42 Iluha: I only really liked one of em
12:31:49 Iluha: then one with "im your new god"
12:32:07 Pavel: hahha yeah that's a good one
12:32:23 Andrew Cockburn: "Its complicated"
12:32:49 Pavel: Andrew - what's the problem with sweeps?
12:33:04 Pavel: btw a piece of advice - don't be afraid of moving your hands - both left and right!
12:33:55 Andrew Cockburn: The problem is ...
12:34:24 Andrew Cockburn: Its a problem with all my metronome training at the momemnt - I get to a certain speed and I run out of enduracnece
12:34:35 Andrew Cockburn: I can play for maybe 10 second and then my forearm aches
12:34:54 Andrew Cockburn: So maybe I just need to alow down and practice more
12:34:59 Andrew Cockburn: Its frustrating
12:35:15 Andrew Cockburn: I can play at speed but for like 3 seconds, so I can;t practice enough to get any faster
12:35:26 Pavel: that's strange
12:35:30 Pavel: maybe you are too tensed??
12:35:32 Andrew Cockburn: I am resting it for now as I also have a little numbness in my left hand
12:35:39 Pavel: never had problems with sweeping really...
12:36:00 Andrew Cockburn: I think I have a tendon problem or trapped nerve or somethging - gonna see the doc
12:36:20 Andrew Cockburn: Sweeping is the only technique I have ever come across that is like a brick wall to me.
12:36:35 Andrew Cockburn: Anything else I could get the hangh of to some degree pretty quickly
12:36:51 Andrew Cockburn: then practice for speed and accuracy - sweeps are my nemesis
12:37:05 Pavel: that's really strange...
12:37:42 Andrew Cockburn: yeah, I think they just need waaaay more practice than ahything else I have done
12:37:54 Iluha: back
12:38:45 Iluha: I got a problem with muting sweeps
12:38:52 Iluha: especially when doing the down stroke
12:39:17 Pavel: i jsut uploaded a Luca Turilli Style lesson - you'll be able to work on muting there
12:39:32 Pavel: it also has some small sweeps in it
12:39:49 Pavel: it's 99% alternate picking but it's killer stuff to work on muting
12:40:01 Iluha: ok i'll try that
12:40:24 Pavel: it will be online this week, Kris has to put it live
12:40:26 Iluha: my problem is that basiclly I mute the strings, but I mute them too fast I think
12:40:36 Pavel: cool - i guess the COP will be my avatar from now on haha
12:40:39 Andrew Cockburn: lol
12:40:41 Andrew Cockburn: I like it
12:40:51 Andrew Cockburn: ok guys, gotta run
12:40:58 Pavel: ok Andrew - see you around
12:40:59 Iluha: cya been nice chatting
12:41:02 Andrew Cockburn: see you!

13:36:22 Iluha: yeah i also was dissapointed when i saw it..
13:36:36 ezravdb: yeah
13:36:37 Iluha: other then horrible faces, it wasn't scary
13:36:54 ezravdb: yeah hehe
13:37:04 ezravdb: those faces were priceless
13:37:32 ezravdb: The Grudge 2 is scarier
13:37:40 Iluha: I didnt watch it
13:37:44 ezravdb: ok
13:37:46 Iluha: because the grudge 1 sucked so bad
13:38:06 Iluha: and thats even though im in love with sarah michelle geller
13:38:21 ezravdb: lol
13:38:34 ezravdb: go play guitar for her
13:38:44 Iluha: nah i suck lol

13:40:06 ezravdb:
13:40:07 Iluha: good then you didnt waste 90 minutes of your life
13:41:26 Iluha: what are you practicing these days?
13:41:32 ezravdb: uhmm
13:41:46 ezravdb: recording
13:41:51 ezravdb: and some songs
13:41:57 ezravdb: Technical Difficulties
13:42:09 ezravdb: I'm near playing it perfectly
13:42:13 Iluha: o thats one i allways wanted to learn
13:42:18 ezravdb: still need to work on stamina
13:42:24 ezravdb: yeah its cool song
13:42:31 Iluha: and scarificed also
13:42:36 ezravdb: good example of E minor soloing
13:42:48 Iluha: and king of monsters heheh.. i like paul gilbert
13:42:53 ezravdb: me too
13:43:02 ezravdb: I like Scraming blues lately
13:43:09 ezravdb: I heard it today
13:43:19 Iluha: i never heard it
13:43:22 ezravdb: pretty cool solo
13:43:49 Iluha: theres this one album
13:43:55 Iluha: which i really started loving recently
13:44:04 Iluha: joe satriani's Super Collosal
13:44:11 ezravdb:
13:44:17 ezravdb: yes!
13:44:21 Iluha: when it only came out for some reason I didn't like it but now I think its of his top 3 albums
13:44:27 ezravdb: I looked at the GP file of it today
13:44:53 Iluha: god damned pop up blocker
13:44:59 ezravdb: hehe
13:45:51 Iluha: who's tony lloret?
13:46:09 Iluha: oh heh now i get it..
13:46:56 Iluha: I could never do those pinch harmonics
13:47:25 Iluha: for some reason I can do a pinch quite easily when I up stroke but not when I down stroke
13:50:23 ezravdb: weird
13:50:23 ezravdb: huh lol
13:51:01 ezravdb: first I pluicked the string with my index finger and the plectrum at the same time
13:51:02 Iluha: I'm guessing that I'm just STOPPING the string with my thumb rather then to just gently mute it
13:51:10 ezravdb: that can be
13:51:15 ezravdb: a possiblity
13:51:18 Iluha:
13:51:30 Iluha: borat > me
13:52:57 ezravdb: he playbacks hehe
13:53:01 ezravdb: with guitar
13:53:53 Iluha: the funny thing about it is that he himself is a jew
13:54:03 Iluha: and that the entire starts to sing along lol
13:54:08 Iluha: entire bar*
13:54:51 ezravdb: yes
13:55:57 Iluha: You got some song suggestions for me maybe? I'm looking for something which isn't packed with shred
13:56:17 Iluha: something like in the beginner-intermidiate zone even
13:56:28 ezravdb: uhm
13:56:37 ezravdb: summer song maybe

14:04:19 Iluha: If only I had it heheh..
14:07:41 ezravdb:
14:09:37 lefty01: hi everyone

14:11:42 ezravdb: i left too
14:12:48 ezravdb: soo
14:12:54 ezravdb: what do you find a scary movie?
14:13:29 Iluha: hmm...
14:13:51 Iluha: wow hmm... I can't think of one that really scared me heheh
14:14:03 ezravdb: saw 3?
14:14:15 ezravdb: that more disgusting hehe
14:14:20 Iluha: no i thought that saw movies were just COOL! but not scary
14:14:46 ezravdb: yes you can call it that
14:14:49 Iluha: curse of the castle dragon is another gilberto masterpiece
14:15:01 ezravdb: yes
14:23:45 Iluha: I think i'm gonna start working on both Summer Song and Technical Difficulties, might take a while but I'll make it
14:33:06 ezravdb: good luck
14:42:07 ezravdb: im glad you liked my lesson btw
14:42:12 ezravdb: on paul gilbert
14:44:19 ezravdb: what happened ?
14:44:37 Iluha: I accidently logged out
14:45:52 Iluha: god i suck so bad at sweeping
14:48:08 ezravdb: that sucks
15:15:31 AIB234: It surprises me that there aren't people in here more often
15:16:53 ezravdb: yeah me too
15:17:17 AIB234: We should start a thread to encourage people to hangout here more often. I'm sure we could have kiler discussions quite a bit
15:17:22 AIB234: or even just chat about whatever, you know?
15:18:49 ezravdb: yeha i think so
15:19:21 ezravdb: theres already getting more scheduled chats
15:19:40 AIB234: yeah I saw. still surprising there's no one ever in here otherwise, though
15:20:04 ezravdb: yes in the beginning there was always someone out there
15:20:12 ezravdb: or in here *
15:20:41 ezravdb: have you ever tried making a song?
15:23:50 AIB234: no I haven't
15:24:46 ezravdb: sometimes it pisses me off lol
15:24:52 ezravdb: when I have a beginning
15:25:07 ezravdb: and then I dont know what the hell I should make from it
15:25:23 ezravdb: or I only hear crap in my head
15:26:00 ezravdb: im glad I got my first one done
15:28:12 ezravdb: would you like to have your own song?
15:28:40 ezravdb: a good start is with jamming
15:28:58 AIB234: yeah
15:29:09 AIB234: the thing is that I don't play enough. i just don't have time to sit around for hours and play
15:29:20 AIB234: ironically once I go back to college I should have that time
15:30:00 ezravdb: haha
15:30:41 AIB234: And besides that, I haven't been practicing seriously that long. I am OK at alt picking, but I don't have scales memorized, can't tap, can't sweep... yet
15:30:59 AIB234: Are you going to/have you posted your song on the forums?
15:37:19 ezravdb: ok
15:37:20 ezravdb: yes
15:37:29 ezravdb: Its called Pentacrazy
15:37:31 ezravdb: hehe
15:51:16 AIB234: which forum/thread?
15:51:31 AIB234: I see one by you called A Funky Jam, but I do not think that is it
15:57:00 Iluha: back
15:59:04 Iluha: im not sure guests can type
16:00:18 ezravdb: no
16:00:21 ezravdb: they cant
16:01:33 ezravdb: AIB234 - Itsa called Pentacrazy , here:
16:06:33 AIB234: I like it. Well done!
16:06:44 AIB234: Kind of makes me hate you a bit
16:10:07 AIB234: Out of interest sake.. what stuff did you start playing to get your left hand up to speed?
16:14:00 AIB234: I read Satriani and Legato on your comments... but there is no way I can play Satriano... I suppose I shall start with the Legato here at GMC
16:20:04 Pavel: good evening!
16:20:26 Slammer: sup dude
16:20:55 Pavel: anybody alive?? lol
16:21:01 Slammer: what's up dudes*
16:21:06 Slammer:
16:21:37 Slammer: anybody here?
16:21:45 Pavel: i guess only 2 of us
16:22:03 Slammer: most people leave when I come on
16:22:12 Slammer: :?
16:22:43 AIB234: ahohoy everyone
16:23:10 AIB234: I'm just busy looking at your first legato lesson, Pavel. I need to work up my left hand speed to match up my right.
16:23:28 Pavel: hey AIB
16:23:45 Pavel: have fun with those legato lessons
16:24:05 AIB234: Oh I will Is this what you would recommend to build my left hand speed to match my right?
16:24:38 Pavel: well if you want legato than right hand has nothing to do with it
16:24:44 Slammer: hey pavel there is something I've always wanted to ask you...
16:24:50 Pavel: go ahead
16:25:23 Slammer: do you know how to play Eugene's trick bag (or whatever it's called)
16:25:34 Slammer: from Crossroads
16:25:37 AIB234: Well... my right hand picks much faster than my left hand can fret so I would simply like to build the speed of my left hand. I was talking to ezravdb a bit and I think he would say legato is a good way to build simply my left hand speed. Would you agree with this?
16:25:41 Pavel: never played that
16:26:05 Slammer: I thought Every Steve Vai fan could lol
16:26:09 Pavel: i saw the movie but didn't play it
16:26:23 Pavel: i get borred playing someone's stuff
16:26:29 Pavel: AIB...
16:26:51 Slammer: that would make the coolest lesson ever IMO although it's Copyrighted
16:26:53 Pavel: you'll just have to sit with metronome and work on simply playing in synchronization with your right hand
16:27:11 Pavel: legato excercises will make your left hand stronger and more precise so it also can help with your problem
16:27:34 Pavel: there is no point inthat lesson as there are loads of tabs out there and you can learn it alone
16:27:47 AIB234: Alright thanks. I am quickly learning that speed is a very slow process
16:27:56 Pavel: Way toooo slow
16:29:50 Slammer: yeah you're right
16:30:22 Slammer: I think
16:30:31 Slammer:
16:30:40 Slammer: JK
16:31:13 Slammer: Welcome Brother Scott
16:31:14 Scott Gentzen: wow, that's a bunch of people. Hi all
16:31:23 Slammer: half of them aren't here
16:31:29 Slammer: It's true
16:31:36 Scott Gentzen: slackers
16:31:42 Slammer: only Pavel and AIB I think
16:31:58 Scott Gentzen: when I flip over to a different window, the chatroom app kicks me out
16:32:14 Slammer:
16:33:11 Scott Gentzen: I'm starting to get used to the dual-monitor setup at work. missing it when I'm home
16:33:13 Pavel: hey Scott
16:33:28 Scott Gentzen: there he is. hey pavel
16:34:23 Scott Gentzen: waiting on getting out to a family graduation party for a nephew of mine.
16:34:56 Iluha: hihi
16:35:14 Pavel: Here is my COP avatar!!
16:35:17 Scott Gentzen: part of me says I should be doing something with the guitar, but my right wrist is sore again. I don't think it's just the guitar that's hurting it, but it's not helping
16:35:21 Pavel: instructors should have that avatar hahahaha
16:35:42 Pavel: i hear too many people having pain in ther hands....
16:35:51 Scott Gentzen: Remember: No Stairway
16:36:14 Iluha: how do you get your wrist soar? it never happend to me
16:36:34 Scott Gentzen: I've really only been giving my left hand a workout on guitar. I'm not good enough to beat up my pick hand
16:36:36 Iluha: maybe you'r trying too much to pick out of you "comfort zone"?
16:37:51 Scott Gentzen: It doesn't really hurt more during after a practice session, so I'm still thinking it's either my driving or my job.
16:38:15 Iluha: how can driving make your wrist soar?
16:38:39 Scott Gentzen: I should get some in-person lessons this summer so I can have someone watch and tell me if I'm doing something wrong.
16:38:53 Scott Gentzen: too much traffic. I tend to grip the wheel and push
16:39:00 Scott Gentzen:
16:39:13 Iluha: how bout you post a video of yourself and some of the pro's here could tell you?
16:40:10 Scott Gentzen: plus, it's more of a carpal tunnel pain which shouldn't be a picking problem
16:40:24 Scott Gentzen: that's a good idea. No camera though. Good reason to get a new Macbook though.
16:40:58 Iluha: I used to have this wierd pain here and there, I still get it sometimes, on my left hand's pinky
16:41:03 Scott Gentzen: "Honey, I need to buy a new computer so some guy in Croatia can tell me what's wrong with my picking technique"
16:41:18 Iluha: I'm preety sure it's because of crazy streching i'm attempting
16:41:56 Scott Gentzen: My reach is still pretty narrow. Working on improving it. Been playing with those Petrucci exercises. Just slower
16:42:10 Iluha: exactly the method i used
16:42:16 Iluha: the petruci strecthing exercises
16:42:18 ezravdb: hehe psycho exercises
16:42:34 Iluha: with them I found out that I can actually strecth more then in his exercises
16:43:08 Scott Gentzen: Yah. doign the one where the gap's between the 2 and 3 finger kills me
16:43:29 Pavel: pain in the pinky is a common thing when starting stretches...
16:44:33 Iluha: i can strech from 12th fret to 24th with first finger and pinky, not sure that too uncommon though
16:44:49 Scott Gentzen: eesh
16:45:09 Pavel: the point is to be able to play clean and fast while playing big stretches
16:45:32 Pavel: i can also try to stretch my d*** but is there any point in it??
16:45:42 Pavel: lol lol lol
16:45:49 Iluha: i didnt say there was a point to it its just something i can do
16:46:17 Iluha: just like francesco ferari' songs, theres no point to em he can just play really fast hehe
16:46:36 Pavel: hehe
16:46:39 Scott Gentzen: I had to go check. I'm making it from 12 to 20. didn't expect that.
16:46:50 ezravdb: yeah he probably like playing fast A LOT
16:46:54 ezravdb: too much
16:46:57 ezravdb: yeha me too
16:47:02 ezravdb: 12-20
16:47:04 Pavel: can you play with middle and ring finger while stretching that far?
16:47:11 Iluha: i can
16:47:19 Pavel: ok - post a video
16:47:20 Iluha: 12-20 that is
16:47:20 Scott Gentzen: I can't play much of anything.
16:47:40 Pavel: make a decent lick with 4 notes per string - like 12-15-19-24-19-15-12
16:48:02 Pavel: it doesn't matter if it sounds like crap - just to see how clean can you play it
16:48:07 Iluha: with 12-24 i cant maybe with 3rd thinger but defintly without middle finger
16:48:16 Iluha: finger*
16:48:20 ezravdb: I can play 12-16-18-21
16:48:22 Iluha: i got alot of dumb typos today
16:48:36 Scott Gentzen: I spend a lot of time on pavel's 12-13-16 exercise though
16:49:09 Scott Gentzen: "small movements and pick like hell." still working on that
16:49:31 Slammer: hi guys!
16:49:36 Iluha: hi
16:49:43 Slammer: I'm back
16:49:56 Slammer: not that you care
16:50:01 Slammer:
16:50:15 Scott Gentzen: I didn't see you come back.
16:50:17 Scott Gentzen: oops
16:50:28 Slammer: well I never left... but I went out
16:50:39 Pavel: lol
16:50:46 Slammer: helped my aunt with gardening
16:50:50 Slammer: not to fun
16:50:54 Scott Gentzen: I gotta run though. time's up. need to take an alleve so I can function
16:50:54 Slammer: too*
16:51:02 Scott Gentzen: that wasn't much gardening
16:51:04 Scott Gentzen:
16:51:09 Slammer: I know
16:51:17 Slammer: that's why I'm back
