16:44:40 Robin: I'm pretty sure thats the problem

16:45:30 Robin: bridge
16:45:34 Smikey2006: like the strings go through the body
16:45:39 Robin: ah yes like that
16:45:42 Robin: like on strats
16:45:43 Smikey2006: so its not really a traditional bridge
16:45:45 rokchik: not bad..just making supper
16:45:51 Smikey2006: it just holds up the strings
16:46:04 rokchik: what's we talking bout?
16:46:14 Smikey2006: my new guitar and through body guitars haha
16:46:19 Robin: bridges being bitches!
16:46:19 Smikey2006: so bridges
16:46:24 Smikey2006: robins been breakin strings
16:46:28 rokchik: ahh I see
16:46:43 Robin: yeah my high E string. I got alot of good suggestions how to fix it in a thread I made though
16:46:52 Smikey2006: i saw that 1 haha
16:46:53 rokchik: yes I saw your post...I use elixirs and don't have a problem
16:47:12 Smikey2006: i use skulls but they r a pain in the ass so ive gotta find a new brand
16:47:13 Robin: gonna have to try to put something beetween, or switch the little thing where the string goes trough
16:47:34 Robin: Elixir is indeed nice. But I'm pretty sure its my bridge cutting the strings
16:47:37 Smikey2006: u can sometimes sna dit down a bit
16:47:44 Smikey2006: sand*
16:47:48 Robin: yeah
16:47:57 Robin: we've tried that, yeserday actually. and before that even
16:48:10 Smikey2006: no good?
16:48:13 Robin: nope
16:48:27 Robin: its kinda annoying when lpaying live
16:48:44 rokchik: I have a tune o matic bridge
16:48:50 rokchik: no problems
16:48:53 Robin: we're playing at this festival in a couple of weeks, if a string breaks there it sucks! I will bring another guitar though, incase it braeks on stage
16:49:16 Smikey2006: i only ever break strings during tuning
16:49:22 Smikey2006: it wud suck breaking it playing
16:49:27 Robin: hmm that have never happened to me
16:50:10 rokchik: when I do break strings it's usually the 1st string...but that's by my playing
16:50:18 Robin: ah ko
16:50:49 Robin: I've also thought about that it might be my playing, but today it broke when I was just playing really soft, and it also breaks just from regular whole step bends
16:50:51 rokchik: Mostly on my acoustic...have yet to break any on the Gibson
16:51:15 rokchik: That would suck dude
16:51:33 Robin: I have a gibson aswell. The bridge seem to cut the strings, I mean, it got so sharp edges. My dads strat is sort of round
16:52:05 rokchik: Is it the tune O matic on the les pauls?
16:52:14 Robin: think we're gonna have to buy a couple of those small pieces to the bridge and just "file" them wider
16:52:21 Robin: les pauls yes
16:52:24 Robin: and explorer
16:52:31 Robin: gibson/epiphone usually got those
16:52:48 rokchik: I don't have that problem with mine...
16:52:58 rokchik: edges don't seem overly sharp
16:52:58 Smikey2006: hmm
16:53:21 Smikey2006: yea im having no troubles here either
16:53:29 Robin: hmm
16:53:30 Robin:
16:53:32 Smikey2006: anyways ive gotta run for a bit ttyl perhaps
16:53:41 rokchik: c ya
16:53:59 rokchik: Robin ya got me stumped amn
16:54:04 Robin: I cry myself to sleep every night becuase of this. And sometimes, I wake up by the sounds of my own screaming.
16:54:05 rokchik: man*
16:54:58 rokchik: I feel your pain....there isn't extra tension coming from somewhere else is there? I don't know if that's possible but it seems strange to be breaking so often
16:55:01 Robin: Haha, nah just joking *laughing*
16:55:17 rokchik: I figured LOL
16:55:19 Robin: the strings have never ever broken anywhere else than on the bridge
16:55:34 rokchik: weird.....
16:56:03 Robin:
16:56:03 rokchik: it's not adjusted to high or anything is it?
16:56:10 Robin: thats sort of the bridge I have'
16:56:35 Robin: I think the edges where the strings goes trough got sharp edges
16:56:42 Robin: I've heard it gives good tone.
16:56:50 Robin: but I think thats why it breaks.
16:57:40 Robin: adjusted too high? I have the strings very close to the fretboard
16:57:52 Robin: The bridge is low yes
16:58:37 rokchik: I have the same one...but mine is chrome
16:58:47 Robin: yeah same here
16:59:05 Robin: what kind of pick do you use? hows the thickness on it?
16:59:55 Robin: Hi muris
16:59:59 rokchik: I'm using a dunlop .60mm right now. Kind of experimenting with pick thickness at the moment
17:00:01 muris: Hi folks
17:00:06 rokchik: Hi Muris
17:00:14 Robin: ok
17:00:16 muris: hello my lady
17:00:27 rokchik: your so kind sir
17:00:41 Robin: I actually dont know what thickness mine got, it doesnt say anything. I use jim dunlop jazz III. Its kinda thick, the way I like it
17:00:42 muris: pleasure is all mine
17:00:58 muris: brb
17:01:33 rokchik: Robin...I'm thinking of getting the Jazz III. At least to try....I like that they are small. You like them do you?
17:01:44 Robin: I love those pick
17:01:53 rokchik: Black or red
17:01:58 Robin: I dont even understand how peoepl can use anything else than those
17:01:59 Robin: red
17:02:10 Robin: I started with Jazz I, then II and now III.
17:02:27 rokchik: That's a bit thicker than the black isn't it?
17:02:34 Robin: I dont know
17:02:48 Robin: actually I didnt know there was a difference other than the color never tried the black ones
17:02:49 rokchik: I'm not is thicker though I think
17:02:54 Robin: ok
17:03:15 rokchik: I could be very wrong on that but I thought I read it somewhere
17:03:23 Robin: guess I just have to start using 0.15 on the high E string and the rest nromal, haha
17:03:27 Robin: ah ok
17:03:29 rokchik: LOL
17:03:51 rokchik: you may aswell use no pick if your going that thin
17:03:56 rokchik: lol
17:04:01 Robin: :F
17:04:04 Robin:
17:04:31 rokchik: have you checked out the singing lesson yet?
17:04:34 Robin: wonder if it helps to use glue or soemthing
17:04:36 Robin: yeah
17:04:51 Robin: she got a pretty voice even though she only did a warm up thing
17:04:56 rokchik: glue??? I wouldn't think
17:05:02 Robin:
17:05:05 Robin: Hi there
17:05:17 rokchik: I'm gonna look at it later...figured while waiting for supper I'd chat
17:05:22 rokchik: hey Tank
17:05:28 Tank: hi guys
17:05:32 Robin: someone mentioned to use some anti-friction oil thing on the bridge
17:05:38 Tank: (and gals!)
17:05:43 rokchik: That may work
17:05:57 rokchik: Guys is fine...I'm in the minority..LOL
17:06:03 Robin:
17:06:23 rokchik: I'm actually not that womens Lib....
17:06:28 Tank: Hey, its good to be different!
17:06:36 rokchik: true
17:07:41 rokchik: BRB....gotta go baste my roast....very domesticated though...LOL
17:07:43 Tank: hows playing going?
17:07:54 Tank: Don't burn the food!
17:08:12 Robin: It went great, untill I broke a string have been playing all day so I didnt bother changnig it
17:08:50 Tank: A natural end to practice
17:08:55 Robin:
17:08:57 rokchik: back...not burned...but smells delish
17:09:14 Tank: good
17:09:18 Tank:
17:09:25 rokchik: playing is going good Tank...doing Gabriels Rocking riff
17:09:41 rokchik: very Tom Morello...I like it a lot
17:09:56 Robin: yeah I saw that lesson. RATM indeed
17:10:12 Tank: excellent
17:10:13 rokchik: It's broken down very well too
17:10:32 Tank: I haven't had a chance to noodle the new lessons yet
17:10:34 rokchik: I just can't seem to get the artifical harmonic just right
17:11:00 Tank: I'm dying to get back into it, but there just aren't enough hours in a day at present
17:11:11 rokchik: I kind of know the feeling
17:11:32 rokchik:'ve been here must be a guitar god!
17:11:44 rokchik:
17:11:57 Robin: I'm actually happy that I dont have many other interests than guitar, I can play all day
17:12:10 rokchik: Work gets in the way
17:12:40 Robin: I understand. I just have this 6 hour day job, family buisness. so I get alot of tiem to play guitar
17:12:42 Tank: I only wish I was 15 again, and didn't have work, and the other facets of music getting in the way of my guitaring
17:13:15 rokchik: I wish I had started playing at 15...or sooner instead of 28
17:13:37 rokchik: I have the dedication just not the time I'd like to put in
17:13:47 Robin: I wish I wasnt a idiot when I started playing
17:14:02 rokchik: I think a lot of us wish that
17:14:06 Robin: if I werent, I would have been much better. 4 years wasted on power chords
17:14:23 Tank: I started when I was 10.
17:14:28 Robin: 7 months ago GMC saved my life!
17:14:34 Robin: really? how old are you now?
17:14:54 Tank: Learned Nothing Else Matters at 14, and spent the next 6 years at that stage
17:15:14 Tank: (it's amazing what that song used to do to girls at parties, in the 90's
17:15:21 rokchik: I have year and a half wasted learning songs.
17:15:22 Robin: hahaha yeah
17:15:30 Robin: its like that still dude
17:15:33 Tank: I turned 30 last month
17:15:54 rokchik: turned 30 in April
17:15:55 Robin: ALL girls love it, so at school everyone plays it >_<(3-4 years ago that is)
17:15:56 Robin: ah ok
17:16:03 Robin: so you're pretty good at the guitar now?
17:16:28 Tank: I'm decent. I really should be better
17:16:42 Robin: hmm ok. I feel the same way
17:16:53 Tank: I did play professionally for 5 years
17:17:00 rokchik: cool
17:17:03 Tank: but not any more
17:17:04 Robin: didnt "really" start playing untill I joined GMC
17:17:07 Robin: wow thats cool
17:17:12 rokchik: same here Robin
17:17:29 Tank: Honestly, it's a great time to start
17:17:39 rokchik: maybe a little bit for I found this site but probably only like a month
17:17:57 Tank: I guarantee you, that studying here will knock a decade off of your learning curve
17:17:58 muris: guys,it's always a great time to start
17:18:02 Robin: yeah
17:18:14 Robin: the FIRST week at GMC I learned more than in the 4 previus years
17:18:17 Robin: previous*
17:18:17 rokchik: I agree
17:18:30 Tank: There wasn't even a widely available internet when I started
17:18:41 rokchik: being as I'm the newb on this chat right now
17:18:59 rokchik: it definatly isn't to late to start
17:19:01 Robin: I hate myself for being a retard kid that only played iron maiden intros. And I always skipped something if there was something difficult... lets say there was a part with chords, I just replaced it with easy power chords instead
17:19:46 rokchik: I hate to admit but I still kinda do that now....but not as much and it usually has to do with speed
17:20:01 muris: rob,Iplayed Irons for a long time
17:20:02 Robin: oh haha no offence!!
17:20:11 muris: lol
17:20:17 muris: don't do that to me
17:20:26 Robin: Ah I was talking to rokchik
17:20:34 Tank: It's all about tackling the hard stuff
17:20:37 rokchik: none taken man
17:20:52 Robin: but I guess I can say it to you too haha I said I was retarded since I only played maiden ah well sorry
17:20:55 rokchik: I know my limitations
17:21:04 muris: no prob
17:21:16 Tank: If you spend 3 hours a day playing stuff you already know, it ain't practice (I learned the hard way!)
17:21:50 Robin: there is nothing wrong with learning maiden songs, but I was such an idiot when I did it. I followed tabs a 100%, skipped the hard parts and didnt really practice much
17:21:53 rokchik: Actually I find if I practice too long playing don't help
17:22:14 rokchik: I have to be very specific of what I practice...and how
17:22:51 muris: try to figure out as much as you can by listening
17:22:59 muris: let tab be the last option
17:23:17 rokchik: I'm learning that now....I listen to music completely different now
17:23:18 Robin: yeah I know that now
17:23:31 muris: never late tho
17:23:48 rokchik: I'm more focused on the guitar and what it's doing
17:23:51 Tank: Developing aural skills definately helps
17:24:15 Tank: I'm doing a little session work for a band next month
17:24:21 Tank: who do cover versions
17:24:27 Robin: cool
17:24:40 Tank: stuff like Sweet Home Alabama, guitar based rock
17:24:48 rokchik: cool
17:25:48 Tank: That I never bothered to learn sooner. But being able to stick on the record, and nail most of the solo on the first or second attempt really attests to developing a good sense of how it sounds
17:26:12 Tank: I think guitarists spend too much time worrying how it "looks"
17:26:23 Robin: huh?
17:26:26 Tank: not enough work with our ears!
17:26:34 Robin: how what looks?
17:27:01 Tank: a solo
17:27:05 Robin: hmm never even thought of that
17:27:16 Tank: if we see fingers flying everywhere, we go "my god thats hard"
17:27:20 muris: true tank
17:27:24 Robin: hahaha yeah thats true
17:27:25 rokchik: very true
17:27:30 Tank: or "I can't hear what hes doing"
17:27:43 Tank: or "there's a million notes on that tab"
17:27:47 Tank:
17:27:48 Robin: haha yeah
17:28:30 rokchik: visually limiting ourselves instead of actually listening to what is being done and that what you mean
17:28:33 Robin: when I was a real noob, some years ago we played live with my band on a school, and I was just 100% improvising without scales, and I picked as fast as I could and I played as fast as I could with my left hahahha
17:28:46 Tank: exactly rokchik
17:28:57 Robin: some of the audience were like: "OH MY GOD did yous see the fingers on that guitarist???"
17:28:58 Robin: hahaha
17:29:15 rokchik: I do that....sheepishly backing away and blushing
17:29:27 Robin:
17:29:36 rokchik: but I'm very self depricating...LOL
17:30:04 Robin: dont be!
17:30:14 Robin: (if I understood the word correct)
17:30:23 Tank: Humility goes a long way in the music bus
17:30:41 rokchik: I'm getting better...
17:31:10 Tank: brb!
17:31:45 rokchik: Like I said before speed is more my problem with some solos....but also I'm just learning techniques so I do still find some stuff intimidating
17:32:06 Robin: you've only played 2 years
17:32:10 Robin: dnot worry about speed
17:32:24 Robin: just need to practice practice practice and practice to get it right
17:32:59 Robin: I've been practicing my ass off the last 2 months on somethnig I thought I would never be able to play. A snog I made myself, I made it WAY to hard for my skill, but now I can play it good and fast!
17:33:01 Robin: Hi there
17:33:01 rokchik: true...but I have a very competitive personality...I push myself pretty hard....thus why so hard on myself
17:33:17 Owen: hey
17:33:22 rokchik: hey Owen
17:33:22 Owen: mind if I crash the partaay
17:33:26 Robin: sure

17:35:29 Tank: I don't think Al Qaeda is quite ready for Glasgow yet
17:35:44 Owen: I dont know if anyone is
17:35:50 Owen: its a bit of an untamed entity
17:36:01 rokchik: They sure didn't study up much
17:36:09 Tank: I love the place. I have a couple of friends up there
17:36:25 Owen: yeah its better than edinburger anyway
17:36:28 Owen: that place is dull

17:37:32 Owen: sunshine capital they call it...
17:38:03 Tank: I'm from Northern Ireland, so I'm used to the climate
17:38:05 rokchik: so I hear...
17:38:21 rokchik: At least it's not snow
17:38:24 Owen: I dont think anything is quite comparable to Glasgow, everytime I go it rains
17:38:28 Owen: maybe thats just me
17:38:38 Owen: Glasgow must have it in for me
17:38:45 rokchik: LOL
17:39:06 Tank: You need to visit on one of the two days a year that it's not raining
17:39:15 Tank: when it's just overcast
17:39:19 Owen: its all about the timing I hear
17:39:38 Owen: they predict rain 365 days a year for it
17:39:41 rokchik: Yes the Scots are not know for their tans are they....LOL
17:39:48 Owen: because they know that thats over 99% correct anyway
17:40:03 Owen: yeah, we're known for our tan cream
17:40:07 Owen: we're all orange
17:40:13 Tank: only god knows what will happen if they ever see that strange bright yellow disk in the sky
17:40:13 rokchik: LOL
17:40:34 Owen: probably think its an Iraqie invasion
17:40:41 Owen: major sp? xD
17:40:53 Tank: lol
17:41:04 Owen: they'll think allah's come to get them back for beating up his terrorista's
17:41:30 rokchik: Is anyone seeing any concerts this summer?
17:41:57 Owen: if I can work up enough cash I might go to see the Black Crusade but thats in November I think

17:44:20 rokchik: inevitable

17:44:48 Owen: ah yes
17:44:59 Owen: Corpse Paint and Spikes
17:45:02 Owen: have fun in the pit
17:45:13 rokchik: I'm not much of a metal fan...but I've checked out a few bands since I've joined GMC
17:45:14 Robin: sell they are a bit mroe than that
17:45:26 Owen: Gorgoroth pictures allways amuse me
17:45:40 Robin: crucifying people on stage upside down, have ALOT of blood and sheep heads and stuff. They are a bit childish yes, but its gonna be fun anyway
17:45:50 Robin: they have awesome music
17:45:54 Robin: really, rtaelly awesome music
17:45:54 rokchik: interesting.....
17:45:58 Robin: but they are kinda stupid
17:46:07 Owen: I'm more into death metal
17:46:21 Robin: I like some death too. But I'm more into thrash and black
17:46:22 Owen: got some Emperor cd's but I dont like black too much
17:46:25 rokchik: see i don't really like the growling
17:46:30 Robin: but mostly into blues and rock'n'roll at the moment!
17:46:31 Owen: thats the awesome bit
17:46:41 Robin: ah I hated growling a couple of years go rokchik
17:46:46 Owen: xD
17:46:46 Owen: you have no idea how hard it is to do it
17:46:47 Robin: it have to grow on you
17:47:20 rokchik: I can imagine it's hard....but its just not my cup of tea so to speak
17:47:24 Owen: I can do about 3 hours of throaght demolition before I have to call my band off xD
17:47:30 Robin:
17:47:33 rokchik: LOL
17:47:46 Robin: our vocalist started growling when he was 13
17:48:01 rokchik: angry youth?
17:48:02 Robin: he was rpetty good. If you want to I can show you some recordings from when he was 13.
17:48:05 Owen: that would of course completely do stuff to your voice xD
17:48:19 Robin: nah we're normal kids, we dont really got a "Punk" attitude.
17:48:28 Robin: we're nto angry. we just like the music
17:48:29 rokchik: sorta like throwing a fast ball to young can mess up your arm
17:48:52 Owen: yeah but this time you risk sounding like a two year old for the rest of your life
17:48:57 rokchik: cool Robin...I was just messing with ya
17:49:01 Owen:
17:49:01 Robin:
17:49:06 rokchik: LOL
17:49:18 Robin: yeah people can fu** up their voice pretty bad if they're doing it wrong
17:49:35 Owen: I use serious amounts of rasp which is probably wrong
17:49:38 Owen: but I dont push it
17:49:45 rokchik: Just singing in general can mess up your voice if your not careful
17:49:49 Owen: that involves slamming the chords together
17:49:50 Robin: hm yeah
17:49:56 Owen: you can do about one 3 minute song and thats it
17:50:36 rokchik: I sang along at the Stones concert and could't talk for 1 week after
17:50:41 Owen: I can never turn the PA up loud enough
17:50:48 Robin: haha really?
17:50:53 Owen: last practice I had it full blast
17:51:02 Owen: still doesnt compete with a vox ac30 and an orange stack
17:51:09 Robin: Both maiden concerts I've been to, I sang along to everything, after the concert my voice was fucvked
17:51:15 rokchik: I have a ad30vt
17:51:16 Robin: but it was fine the day after
17:51:51 rokchik: I also spent like 11 hours in the rain at that concert....rained all day and was an outdoor venue
17:52:00 Robin: haha
17:52:01 Owen: oooh nasty
17:52:14 rokchik: Plus Alice Cooper opened...gotta love Alice
17:52:17 Owen: not as bad as all those poor souls that go to Glastonbury though
17:52:23 rokchik: true
17:52:25 Owen: they're all drowned yearly
17:52:39 rokchik: but well worth it ...I'd love to go
17:52:50 Owen: I watched it this year on the telly
17:52:53 Owen: seemed a bit crappy
17:53:00 Owen: the sound was a bit thin for most of the bands
17:53:02 Owen: I felt anyway
17:53:05 muris: feed my Frenkenstain
17:53:14 rokchik: just the atmospher alone would be worth it for me
17:53:16 muris: sorry for these drops
17:53:20 muris: working something here
