  1. On the early Van Halen records, Eddie used to tune to himself and then Mike Anthony would tune to him. So they are all over the place relatively speaking.
  2. I think I saw that tour. Manchester Apollo. Did they do that thing where the just played a head splitting sound that got louder and worse, then just stopped when you couldn't take any more?
  3. Copied and pasted from their website If the customer withdraws from this Contract, we must reimburse any payments we have received from the customer, including delivery costs (excluding any additional costs incurred if the customer has selected a different type of delivery to the cheapest standard delivery option offered by us) without delay, but no later than fourteen (14) days after the day on which we receive the notice of the customer’s withdrawal from this Contract. We will use the same payment method the customer used for the original transaction in order to provide the reimbursement, unless otherwise expressly agreed; under no circumstances will the customer be charged a fee for this refund. We may withhold the reimbursement until we have received the returned goods or until the customer has provided proof that he/she has returned the goods, whichever is earlier. The customer must return or hand over the goods to us without delay and no later than fourteen (14) days from the date on which he/she notifies us of withdrawal from this Contract. The deadline is deemed to be met if the customer sends the goods before the expiry of the fourteen-day deadline. We shall bear the costs of returning the goods.
  4. Isn't it free return in the first 14 days?
  5. But which finger is the best for metal?
  6. I wouldn't bother they've reduced the speed limit to 60mph on the 602 which is really annoying. Do you want to be associated with that?
  7. I recently learned a full set to dep for a band for a couple of gigs. 30 odd tunes. Both got cancelled. Not impressed.😆
  8. Well that's alright as I said I won't be using it. Bet it costs a fortune anyway. Just use your ears and fingers innit!
  9. Everyone will just have to get the True Temperament frets that Stevie Vai has. I won't. I like a bit of wobble. We've got by forever without totally perfect intonation. It's pointless. I'd rather have feel than totally clean in all aspects of music.
  10. Surley the solution is just the intonation of your playing. Vibrato, bends, playing the note in a different place. You shouldn't be up the dusty end that often anyway.
  11. I think timing is under appreciated by a lot of musicians. I don't think it gets practiced enough once you get decent. Kind of gets taken for granted. Obviously I can't speak for everyone. I've fell into the trap before. Heard back a recording of a show and my timing wasn't perfect on some bits. So this led to months of playing along with a metronome. Stripped my playing back to basics. Scales, arpeggios etc. Did the trick, now it's a regular warm up.
  12. I once played a show. An anniversary concert for a big musical at a fairly big and famous venue. We had a problem with a singer. Not tuning......timing. She kept running off in front of us, a beat, 2 beats, a bar. Just totally random. We had to go with her. MD's decision. In was a fairly basic tune in 4 but we ended up sounding like Dream Theater.
  13. A band i was in used to open with the Thundercats theme tune. I used to do all the shooty laser gun sounds.
  14. Still absolutely love that album, the band and Townsend just rip it up. It's my favourite Vai album.
  15. First heard him with Vai. TM Stevens and Bozzio as a rhythm section. I was 14 and had just started playing. That's what I thought a rhythm section had to be like😆
  16. Eventually Thomann will become OCP. Tbh I've never really been a fan of Dawson's. In the 90's there was a Dawson in a town near me but me and my mates used to use the independent music shops. You could get better stuff at better prices. I found the service and atmospheres in those shops was better too.
