    I have the Slayer tone, get in here and be jealous

    Sloppy, muddy, painfully uninteresting riffs, no highs in the tone at all... sounds like Slayer to me.

    I let my lead guitar do the singing for me. Check it

    This is awesome. I don't like most eight-string stuff, but you've got a good sound going on. Keep it up!

    Is accuracy more important than speed

    You have to fairly often TRY to play something way beyond a speed you can play it at to actually even start learning it. Uses a completely different set of muscles for me to play 16ths at 120 and 16ths at 180+. That being said, don't perform or record something you can't play cleanly at the...

    Secondary Dominants?

    As far as I know, you're right. This is what I learned in theory class all those years ago, at least. Also they're awesomely fun to play with.

    GlassCloud album

    I only care about the song Ivy & Wine, it has The Mojo. Everything else on the record is shit. Hell, Ivy and Wine is shit, I just like it anyway.

    Weird thing happened after recording, anyone else?

    You wore it out. Same thing happens to me, but about halfway through writing whatever it is. :) It'll come back eventually.

    Diagnosed with Tendonitis and maybe Carpal Tunnel- Any Advice?

    Make sure you warm up very slowly on guitar: that sure helped me. Also start powerlifting. I'm serious.

    I saw this thread, yelled to myself, "CHROMATIC MEDIANT RELATIONSHIP OH MAN I'M GOING TO INB4 WHORE TODAY" and then was sad/happy that he beat me to it. :)

    Starting Over

    Stop playing guitar for at least two weeks. I'm serious. See what happens after that. But don't take chances, I continued to play through some pain/numbness several years ago and I still have horrible endurance on the instrument now.

    REVIEW: Agile Interceptor Pro

    Dude, not going to lie, that first track was RAD. You've got decent chops and some great ideas. Plus you sound different. *high-five*

    New song

    Yes, I need to practice a lot of things to get them right. Don't worry about it. It probably just means you're progressing.

    Practicing economy/alternate picking with a metronome?

    Paul Gilbert doesn't actually alternate pick everything, he alternates(pun intended) between picking and legato. He's a good guitarist, but I wouldn't recommend listening to him on sweeping etc. There's nothing wrong with economy picking, but you really do need the metronome. Play scales with...
