    What constitutes a great metal recording tone?

    I recently started exploring the Lasse Lammert presets for Axe FX and noticed his tones are incredibly dry and thick. Generally I have been dialing in and playing with tones that felt way more wet and spongy in comparison, with way more air and sustain. I am having trouble playing convincingly...

    What is your favorite combo for active neck/bridge humbucker pickups? Looking for recommendations

    Hi there! I am kinda new to this active pickups thing. So far I am happy with the ones I got for my 6 string CGCFAD guitar (EMG 81&85). I've seen there is also a 7 string version but I think I want something different for my 7 string. What I play is heavy chugging riffs on my bridge pickup...

    Shipping insured. What do you use?

    I’m curious about what service you use to ship guitars and what insurance you buy when you do. I’ve used UPS in the past but since I’ve been selling on reverb I’ve used their protection. It’s been really helpful but I’ve mostly sent smaller items like a preamp and pedals. Now I’m about to send...

    Herman Miller Aeron and guitar playing?

    Probably posting in the wrong forum, but couldn't figure out where it should go. Does anyone have any experience with the Aeron when it comes to playing guitar?

    I have a new video up on how to recreate a Deftones-style guitar tone. I was going for the Around the Fur, White Pony, Self-Titled Deftones era.

    How to properly play the "x" on guitar tabs?

    I'm learning "Nightfall" by The Devil Wears Prada, and it has a lot of these "x" in the tab. What is the correct way to play these? I can't seem to find anything on Youtube, but it may be because I don't know what people refer to them as? As far as I can tell it's a soft press down with the...
