    I'm working on my own stuff :yesway:

    Though I must say rocking out on my old faves to (re)cut some teeth is always fun. Leo Brouwer etudes most recently :)Beautiful easy pieces to maintain your chops :shred:

    Lol, I think that was directed at me ... but I also think it was done in a friendly way rather than being serious. Just ribbing each other a bit :lol:

    Fair enough

    Yes I understand what you're saying, rib away.

    I more interested in encouraging people rather than ribbing people because at the end of the day, what's really going to matter the most.

    I'm not really working on any song specifically at this time, but thanks to Vin's slide thread I've set up one of my guitars in open E with the action a little higher and I'm working on getting a feel for the slide. My goal is to eventually be able to rip off on some Joe Walsh stuff, but for now I'm just working on getting the feel and learning how to keep it under control without all the unwanted noise.

    :hmm: interesting stuff. I've heard of them but never paid attention. I guess you're right man, if you want to shock people singing about Satan doesn't cut it anymore and it's kinda cheesy. :wave:

    Great song I'm a big DT fan but I don't dare to try anything from Petrucci. I'm light years away from that skill level.
    Great song from an otherwise weak album. I can't stand Portnoy's growls though.
    LOL I was told the same thing about KISS. Later I learned that they're just about the silliest band out there. Even Gene Simmons said that he was always more interested in making a rock brand not a rock band. And they have been very successful in such thing.

    Songs I'm learning? Just some stuff for my band to cover.

    And we're arranging a very cool version of this. :)

    mY Favorite approach usually when it comes to covers is learn it note for note as close to possible and then start using a back track to the song where I do the main solo close to original and if I can find a back track that is extended in the outro so I make up my own soloing at that point. Kind of a perfect blend to expanding yourself learning what others did but having to get creative also.

    I do that with Purple Haze, La Grange and All along the watchtower if I could find a longer back track for that last one. But songs like from Rush I try to stay close to copying as I can.

    Dream Theater, Satriani and Yngwie?, never ventured into that territory yet ha ha.

    I love Helloween! :headbanger:

    Working on a bunch of songs (all over the place). In my first band, but been playing over 20 years. I can relate to getting a song started and then getting bored with it.

    SO MUCH more fun to play with other people!
