Hey guys! I'm back from vacation. I've been visiting some family at NYC and every time I go there, I go to every guitar store and try every guitar that I can! laugh.gif

I've tried really beautiful stuff like Ibbies (I've played Kris Ibanez and some other similar!), Fenders (being Jeff Beck signature one of my favorites), John Petrucci's Music Man signature, and many weird ones. I've uploaded some of these vids to my social networks.

The cool thing is that Guitar Center shared on of my videos at their Insta and Facebook and it had a lot of views! Honestly it's a big honor for me.

It got 54000 views in Insta and 40000 views in Facebook!

It's curious to see many people saying great thing and many saying things like: "this is not musical", "these guys don't know how to play a whole song", "this is not a lick, it's just a scale", and my fav comment is "Congrats! You are learning scales", which I've decided to reply with a "yeah! I'll start learning chords the next week" and got this reply:


@gabrielleopardi don't get me wrong, homie- I wish I could play like that. This shit is fully rad! It's just my jealousy talking. My speed isn't there.


Why people takes so seriouly a 15 seconds random playing video at a store? laugh.gif

Yeah, sometimes people can't just enjoy music. Instead, everybody has to have an opinion smile.gif.

How did you like that six6? I'm thinking about buying one.

The suspense! wink.gif

I plan to visit the big guitar shop in Malaga - Spain when I am there next week. This is the shop from which I've bought my red custom shop schecter from:) But I doubt anyone will film me and share on the net wink.gif

Film yourself and tag the shop! In this case, my girlfriend filmed me and I've shared the vid at my Insta tagging Guitar Center. Then, they asked to re-post it and I agreed.

I thought the IBBY vid was a KILLER vid!! You always get TROLLS when you get views. The more views, THE MORE TROLLS! It's the price you pay for your video going viral. sad.gif The good news is TROLLS ARE MORONS so ignore them. The views speaks for themselves. If it was not worth watching, 100,000 people would not have taken time to watch it! I watched it a few times myself smile.gif You were RIPPING THE HECK OUT OF IT!!!!

I gotta say man you need that Ibby big time!! You seemed so comfy on it!! It looked like it was almost playing itself at mach 5. Wel played there. I hope you can grab one of those at some point in the future. It was almost an extension of your arm. Just built in to part of your body. That guitar is YOU!!

Wou Todd! Here in argentina we say "me re cebaste", which would mean something like you motivated me so much to want it. laugh.gif

It's in my list of wishes now.

Go for it if you can. It's a GREAT guitar, and it has a very unique and cool sound. It's also very comfortable to play.

It will definitely help, but are you up to the challenge of such finger twisting trickery?

Good thinking! Give yourself time to adjust to this multi-fingered use of the instrument!
