Whats up GMC!

Justed wanted to say what a great site and I know I'll be learning alot here. I'm 34 years old and have always wanted to shred on a guitar. That said, I'm finaly getting serious about it. After learning the Solo from "Fade To Black" from Kris's lesson, I knew this was the place to be online.

I'm going to start with the 6 beginner exercises first and master those befor moving on. Any recomendations would be great!

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Man, you guys are great! Thanks for all the "welcomes"

I know this is not the place to be asking, but I just bought a new guitar with active EMG's 81 & 85. My question is this. Is it normal to hear a little more feedback through the amp. It's not alot, just a little more than my guitar with passives. I also notice that when I turn away from the amp (my body between the guitar and amp, it pretty much goes away.)

Anyway, thanks guys and I'm proud to be appart of GMC!

Welcome to the family Steve smile.gif

Yes that is normal because EMG active piskups have much more output than your passive pickups. Try to lower down the volume or stand back from your amp a little. Hope this helps.

Thanks Milenkovic. Thats exactly what a tech told me where I purchased the guitar. I'll try that and see.
