Mainly blues, classic rock and jazz players but there are a few metal players around

Ah man, that's cool !

That Matt L guys is the first guy to really get what I was doing with the Kirk solo. In the old days Kirk rarely used a Wah on the album versions and that 'modal' climb I do is lifted straight from the Ride the Lightning solo smile.gif

Over 107,202 hits in 10 days! That's amazing! ohmy.gif

34 dislikes... you shouldn't be able to "dislike" it unless you can nail this lesson...just my personal opinion.

Glad you like it, I got it from Bruce Lee smile.gif

The full quote is:

Empty heads have long tongues. Commonly they, who's tongue is their weapon, use their feet for defence.

The way I interpreted that was those who criticise would use their feet to run away when challenged ! smile.gif
