    I have been asked by a respected member and friend of mine here to jump in the ring in the guitar room. I like this room better than general discussion, mainly because there is no VH to discuss! Sad but true....
    Don't everyone laugh. I just started playing. Curious what you think, particularly about the sound. Thanks for listening!

    Jeez Dude !

    If you have just started playing, then well done. It sounds really good. The tone of your guitar is really nice as well. Plus, it does indeed sound as though you are enjoying yourself. Fantastic !

    Rest assured, no-one is going to be laughing at your stuff ! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    thanks for saying that. i really have been at it about a year but haven't spent time on it like i should so to say i just started may not be that accurate. i have also spent some time with a fellow shredder here over at their house. i think that is really important, having a guitar friend, someone who is as interested in it as you and doesn't always say, 'turn it down' type of thing. it's also invaluable to actually watch someone that plays like a pro, to be able to see up close what they are doing and how they are making the sounds that EVH makes and seeing that it isn't impossible, well at this point it is, but not completely! oh, the paint job, i actually did that with 1 roll of white electrical tape and 1 roll of black from home depot, kinda cheesy but looks alright. it cost about 1.69 and was fun doing it.

    Welcome to the Van Halen fans nut farm. You came to the right place, my friend!

    Very nice guitar and very nice tones!

    Don't worry about it, it will come ! I still can't solo properly. However, I have been told that playing scales up and down the neck will help with this. Then you just need to learn the mechanics of someone elses solo.

    But you're doing great so be patient, keep at it, and I'm sure it will come !

    Sounds great!
    I like the guitar...just think, if the Van Halen stripe police ever raid your house, you just have to peel off the evidence!
    Why didn't you think of that Rol?
