Hahahaha im 49! That's pretty cool!My kids tell me to grow up! I feel like im in my 20s thou. I lived in L.A. Venice Ca. for 30 years and last year I went back to Austria. I jut needed to do something different. I was getting very bored in L.A What career you looking in to?

I don't think anyone ever really grows up. In my case it helps I look 30. haha! I'm almost finished the written part for my 4th Class Power Engineering ticket. Gonna head up to Ft. Mac in Alberta to get my steam time and then write the government exam to become certified. Tired of sitting in an office all day so a change will do me good.

Never had one but im fascinated by them. I love my Les Pauls but one day I will get me a V. I always think im to old for them. lol Where you from if I may ask?

I'm in Canada. No such thing as being too old imho. Shit, I'm close to 50 myself. I'm even back in school training for a new career.

Yes, he doesn't like it when I point out that mutt lange wrote and produced every note on their first four records. They are basically a cover band for their producer.....LOL

Perhaps he helped arrange stuff in the studio as it's common when bands don't have control in the studio, but wrote? Don't think so. Song writing credits are where the money is...or used to be. No credits for Mr. Lange save for these. Wealthy or not, I'm sure he would've liked song writing royalties for 10's of millions of albums sold + radio play etc.

Beautiful !!! I see an Flying V! You got some good taste my friend!!

Yeah, I love Vs. They're my main guitars for both studio and live stuff.

After High &dry the record company's saw the potential of a great rock band. Then they overproduced them and fucked it all up! Now they are opening for Britney spears!

Money kills music.
10  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: guitar pickups? on: April 17, 2014, 10:16:08 AM
Absolutely! Anyone can afford a pretty nice guitar today. (if you know what to look for).
I remember my first guitar was a SG copy and screws and shit kept falling of when you played it! Horrible Lol


I just picked up an Ibanez Iron Label for $700 and it's a killer guitar. Plays/sounds like a dream. I like the bar better than my Floyds. Single volume, no tone, kill switch, wizard neck and 81/60 combo. All my other EMG gits are 81/85.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: AC/DC Finito? on: April 17, 2014, 10:09:18 AM
Yes true, Hysteria was very much a pop album, Pyromania was probably semi-rock and you could tell they were starting to sell out to commercialism at that point. High & Dry and On Through the Night were proper old-school rock albums.

Nail on the head.

Cool, man. Great stuff. Not to be a tool, but you're spelling his first name wrong, is that on purpose?

Yeah I did, because Yngwie is a great player but he is a tool.
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: AC/DC Finito? on: April 17, 2014, 09:30:50 AM
It's a valid opinion, I totally agree. The fact that this dork has us even comparing these two bands is beyond troubling.

He's done similar comparisons before..hahaha!
14  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: AC/DC Finito? on: April 17, 2014, 09:22:44 AM
I was listening to Def Leppard long before I was into AC/DC only because my dad preferred them but I've got to say that Def Leppard peaked with Hysteria in 87. Adrenalize wasn't a bad album either but after that they just started looking stupid, like a bunch of old men trying too hard to be hip and trendy.

Black Ice was an awesome album, in my opinion possibly one of their best and shows that AC/DC have far better longevity than Def Leppard or most other rock bands for that matter.

Either way, I still like both in their own way.

I'd say they peaked with Pyromania. It was probably their last rock or semi-rock album before they turned into a pop band. Obviously that's just my opinion.
15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: All about guitar on: April 17, 2014, 09:16:44 AM
yngwie can shred like his name sake

you tried to play altitudes

working on it now

its tricky

Just checking out the tab now. Looks like it'd be fun to play.

How about a guitar video, guy?

I've posted lots of videos here over the years.

Here's an old vid and some of my demo tracks for my band to learn from, though I give them sheet music/tab as well. I write everything and play all the instruments.

I wouldn't want a nice Les Paul with some cheap ass sounding pick ups in it. Can you imagine the disappointment
once you plug the Axe in and you get this crackly whistling weak sounding tone? All the playing in the world is not gonna make it go away. I agree most Pick ups are more then acceptable now. eddie build his own pick ups and spend years of wiring them up!! All kinds of shit until he found what he liked in a pick up.  And that guy can play. Oh almost forgot the P90s.(the original ones)

The quality of cheaper guitars has gone up tremendously as well. 25 years ago a cheap guitar was shit. Now you can great sub $1k import guitars. Many of them superior to the $3K+ US made stuff. It's hit-and-miss really.

Welcome home YR Smiley Would be much appreciated if you watched my latest vids, hence our previous guitar talks about progressing. (Basically I just want props for playing Jason Becker now Grin)
Did you get the Altitudes tab Bigmc? Smiley

I'll check out the vids when I get a chance. Yeah, I use Serrana as an arpeggio exercise.

Just got back from watching the original Sabbath, sans Bill Ward, play tonight. Great bloody show. I was very impressed. Especially since I saw Ozzy 2 years ago and he blew chunks.

19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: guitar pickups? on: April 16, 2014, 10:26:27 PM
Shitty pickups tend to sound like shit. eg. EMG HZ are their passives and sound like ass. The actives on the hand, kick ass.
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: All about guitar on: April 16, 2014, 02:31:23 PM
I know this is sacrilege

but vai leaves me cold

ive always felt that if you put the perfect guitarist into a computer

vai is how the computer would sound

I appreciate technically he is phenomenal

but id listen to garry moore every day of the week over him

I'm not a big fan of Vai, Van Halen or Satriani either. Old Satch material was ok though.
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: AC/DC Finito? on: April 16, 2014, 02:28:42 PM
AC/DC have never sounded this good live and this songs rocks harder than anything by them.

22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: AC/DC Finito? on: April 16, 2014, 02:27:51 PM
So what if I prefer the music of Def Leppard? The fact is, I know more about music than all of you people. Look and learn.
