Maine Prog Metal Musicians

    Looking for another guitarists to put together something proggy, metal and more technical than basic chug, chug, chug riffing. I’m located in the Central Maine area and go to college at KVCC in Fairfield (in case you go as well). Looking to jam in person for a while and figure out if there is...

    Best first Jazzmaster?

    Wanting something that's not an 8 string with dual humbuckers and a hardtail. Been in a rut, started listening to post hardcore/math rock/indie/pop/dreampop, jazzmaster would better fit those sounds. I'm torn between the Vintage Modified, J Mascis Sig, or shelling out the dough for a 60's...

    Arch Echo - Happiest Prog Metal Ever

    A quick search turned up no threads talking about these guys. I think they need some serious love going. I just found out about them, and oh my god it's like a lovechild of Dream Theater, CHON, and Super Mario. And they're all so freaking happy, too! Like you can tell these guys genuinely enjoy...

    Jazz songs books

    I was just wondering if any of you knew a great book of "must-know" jazz songs, but in standard notation ? I know it would be easier to find tabs, but I'd really like to work on my sight reading so anyone knows about a book of that sort?

    where do you share your music?

    Hey guys I made a tune the other day in order to practice thumping. It kinda sounds like AAL: https://soundcloud.com/pedropeedro/pop-philosopher Soundcloud isn't what it used to be though. I find little to no action there and instead have to send Soundcloud links elsewhere (like here). Do you...

    New (wannanty replacement) guitar day!

    So the guitar that this replaced was a Luna Gypsy series, and that's for the best. Thanks GC pro coverage. The Luna had a horribly back bowed neck, and the truss rod was completely loose. So the action issues were pretty much irreparable. I wanted a cheap beater guitar to bring to school, but I...

    Charvel San Dimas or PRS SE (with SD Alpha and Omega)

    Hey... I am planning to buy a new guitar and I am torn between Charvel San Dima Pro Mod Style 2 7 HH and PRS SE Mark Holcomb 2017. My interest is definitely in djent and metal but I play other stuff too. Jazz, a bit of fusion and a lot of thumping and slapping on guitar as well. My points of...

    Advice on possible second bass please

    I'm a relatively new bass player coming from a guitar background. My first bass is an Ibanez SR500 (4-string). Its a very comfortable bass to play, but I absolutely hate the tones I get. I've always heard great things about Bartolini pickups, so I think the main problem lies with the Ibanez...

    Latin/Classical/Clean Music suggestions?

    I've been getting into jazz and latin music (classical, and probably bossa nova) as of late, learning jazz chords and playing mestis songs (Luz y Cielo in particular).
