the second solo in Comfortably Numb, is it double tracked?

I thought it was just the more inexpensive guitars which used veneers. I didnt realise that a 'mahogany body with flame maple cap' can also be code for - 'maple cap with flame veneer'. That seems really shady to me, even for a guitar company.
I was looking at ESP, I read on a couple of forums and articles that the E-II has a veneer, they are close to 2K. I really didnt expect to see their models costing £1,700 - £1,900 with a veneer!
The ESP catalogue just states 'flame maple cap' but thats not really true imo. At least PRS state in their catalogue 'maple cap with flame veneer'.
I really like the ESP E-II Eclipse as well but totally put off by the way they dont mention that.
*if it IS a veneer... if not, I take it back and they're awesome and I still want one smile.gif

So is it just common place to stick a veneer onto a bit of maple and call it a flame maple cap?
It cant be right, not to state that. Maybe its just me.

I thought this was a really cool video looking at how both guitarists alter their picking hand for various sections. Not by a little either but quite a lot. Even on parts where they are playing the same riff its interesting to see both attacking it quite differently.

I thought it might be of interest to some folks here who might not be familiar with the band. Even if its not your type of music, it's still worth checking out.

Also, their new album 'Relentless Mutation' is brilliant and def worth a listen. The artwork on the album is also rather tasty.

Personally, I really like this band even if listening to them reminds me just how much I suck at guitar biggrin.gif

I watched the first episode of Norsemen on Netfilx.... it was okay but there's a character in the show which just reminded me of a certain ibanez playing norseman from our own GMC community wink.gif

maybe its just me but..... the viking standing behind the guy trying to shoot the arrow?

Im trying to get my practice sessions a bit more efficient. Any thoughts or advice would be great smile.gif
Ive got about 2 hours worth of time daily. Ive been trying to figure out what is the most important stuff I want to work on and as clichéd as it is....
Alt picking is still a big priority for me, then its maybe being able to play runs using hammer / pulls and legato. then I need to improve my riffing, like for playing more metal type stuff.

As for the picking - I had thought an hour on that maybe split into 30 mins of patterns to a metronome and 30 mins on 1 or 2 picking lessons.
I have no problem with the metronome stuff, I dont get bored and I actually quite enjoy the non-musical aspect, its like a form of meditation smile.gif
with that said do you think that actual patterns matter that much and what are peoples thoughts on including the old Vinnie Moore style chromatic stuff along to the metronome like - here at 2:50 - I do these quite a lot at the moment.

then I might do a similar thing with hammer / pull runs and legato for 40 mins and 20 mins riffing stuff ( 20 mins doesnt seem much though, dunno but Im probably a bit better at playing riffs than fast picking )

I'd like to delve into sweep picking but I thought its best to get my overall hand sync improved first so thats a future thing and I plan on learning more theory but I'll do that outwith this 2 hour practice.
Also, I think I take on far too many lessons. I should probably reduce those a fair bit huh.gif

any thoughts would be appreciated.
