G'day ben

Funny you should post right after I mentioned Guitar.com.
I made friends w/an Aussie on that board...he came here and spent a few days with me and my family.

Great guy...couldn't pronounce "car" though...my 10 year old hated that. heh.


Nice lookin' guitar family.

I can't really consider myself a guitar player anymore (not that I ever shoulda anyhow)

Unless I play everyday my knuckles get stiff...and I haven't had any of them out of the case in months.
I put some ben-gay on my knuckles once, so I could play longer...next day I couldn't even make a fist.

Still own a Martin D12-28, a Tama-12 (beater I've had since the 70's), and a '74 LP deluxe/ gold top.

I keep thinking about just selling them...but then what? I'll make a couple mortgage payments with the money, or gamble it away...but my guitars would be gone forever.
Hmmmm put a price on your D28 ?

Pinch...it's a Gibson Medalist 100W/4 -10" Jensens...weighs a ton.

I bet I haven't plugged it in for 15 years.

I used to play a lot, now I play a couple times a year. Mostly melodic or folk Death Metal. Bands like: Ensiferum, Children of Bodom (old stuff), In Flames (old stuff), Dissection, At the Gates, and so on and so forth

Are all their songs so long?

Do they REALLY have that much to say?

I think a trend of this kinda folk melodic death metal genre is to have very very long guitar pieces, a couple guitars in melody etc... to be honest I never looked up the lyrics, so I have NO idea what they are talking about. This genre of music often has lyrics about "fantasy" stuff: like Lord of the Rings esque. For example Ensiferum has lots of songs about battling dwarfs etc.. I know it is pretty ridiculous, but I like ridiculous! Also the guitar is cool!

I listen to a combination of Classical: Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Rachmaninov, Philip Glass, and Melodic Death Metal... and I enjoy the melodies in both.

I also listen to Malay/Indonesian language songs, as my girlfriend is of Malay ethnicity, and her family listens to lots of popular songs in that language. Some are quite nice to be honest, and she (girlfirend) can sing and has an amazing voice. (and yes I can speak Malay/Indonesian)

Also, some 80's esque metal in Malay music... pretty hilarious. This is about "Malay women" and how pure they are lol... it is funny stuff if you get a translation.
