Good stuff Pete,
The music video was priceless. You guys did have some big hair. You are a very talented guitar player. I actually own the Album Mood Swings which the song "No Justice" is on.

Thanks for the kind words man

You have some very nice tats. I havent looked further down the page, but the one on yourleft forearm in the picture looks fresh. Where do you get your work done at pete.

Thanks!
I use a guy out here in Toronto for all of the work that I have done. I've also had one done in Japan while I was there.
Yeah, the one on my left forearm was fresh at the time of the photo.

That's a sweet tattoo,
I still can't belive that Lee actually did that.

I have 4.  They seemed like a good idea, at the time.  Problem is You're marked for life.  First thing on your mug shot, if you do a no-no, are pics of the tat's.  Worse than DNA, if you're on the run.

Very true about the mugshot thing, but I really don't need to worry about that one......yet......LOL!
So do you regret getting them then?
Personally I don't regret them at all. I'll tell you one thing though, there addicting man. It all started with one on my right arm and that turned into a whole bunch.

I was just wondering who here at Getbig.com has tattoos and if they cared to post pics of them.
Here are some pics of mine.

Hey pete... cool song...check it out...i love guitar and i wanted to play...i started and i found that since im double jointed (my fingertips go beyind 180 when pressed against something ...like say a guitar neck) and i find myself muting strings that i dont want muted....have you heard of anything like that??

I can't say that I have heard of anything like that before. I may just be reading what you wrote wrong as I don't fully understand what your trying to say by "my fingertips go beyond 180". If you'd like send me a pm explaining it a little more.

I didn't think you did overdub, I was commending you on that fact. It's obvious to my eyes, that you are really playing there.
There is a video on youtube.com where a guitar player is faking "Sabre Dance" by Dave Edmunds. You can tell the timing of the fingers are off, the tone of the guitar is exactly the same as Dave's recording, and the guy does more antics of jerking around than playing.
I know it's you recording that, just to be clear.

I apologize, I must have misunderstood what you wrote there.
You mentioned that you've struggled as a musician, how long have you been playing for?
Sorry,
P

Sounds good, though I have a few critiques-

1) I'm not too much of an expert on that genre, but a lot of guys have a tone that sounds so similar, but that tone IMO is a little on the horrid side. Too many effects covering up what technique you may have- which one must have good technique to play like this, why not show it a little more? Guys like Eric Johnson (who does go for a different feel on many of his songs), have impeccable technique and a tone that is cool. EJ's tone would show a mistake instantly, kind of a catch-22 where his tone shows off his playing, but could also show how rotten he is should he not be too good!
2) Learn to deaden a note instantly. There are many places I heard where you should have just killed the note, but you let it ring as you slid up/down the neck. Basically, you would be playing a dotted quarter where it should be just a quarter or eighth note after a rest.

Aside from those two minor critiques, you sound like you know how to play-not some chump that overdubbed a track and is calling it his own.
I also have struggled as a professional musician, but after making 9k in one year, I said "Forget this." Just playing occasionally now, but always practicing.
Keep up the good work. Smiley

Thanks for your honesty.
I can tell you that I did not overdub someone elses stuff and I'm trying to pull it off as my own. This was written and recorded in 1993 and was put out on my band's (Harem Scarem) second studio album Mood Swings. I agree Eric Johnson is an amazing guitar player.

very nice. I especially like the wierd cute little expression at the end.  Smiley

Well, thanks.......that's just kind of the way I am at times.

Again, I thank you guys for your honesty.
240, keep playing for fun man. This is really the only job that I've ever had. I just recently turned 38 years old and I've been playing in bands ever since I was 13 or so. It's really a bitch trying to make money at it, but its been alot of fun and all is well right now. I am one of the few people who can actually say that they love their job.

Thanks for all the compliments guys!!!!
Sorry, for not replying sooner but I've been really busy. We've just finished recording our 11th Harem Scarem album and I've been up to my nuts in a some other projects.
Thanks again y'all!
Pete

I'm from a Canadian band called "Harem Scarem", you've probably never heard of it though as we've never broken through into the U.S., Alot of our market is in Europe and Japan. You should check out www.haremscarem.net when you have the time.

Yes sir, it is. What did you think?
17  Getbig Main Boards / General Topics / What do you think of this? on: October 13, 2006, 01:22:05 PM
I was just wondering if I could get your opinion on this.
Any criticism is welcome

Axl Rose does sound horrible as of late. One of the reasons that they don't have that same sound is because Slash isn't there any more. I don't think that Slash was an extraordinary guitar player but he was very good and that's hard to duplicate for the new members of GNR now.
