It's a Vox V847 and I had it sitting on my coffee table downstairs for a couple of weeks. I bought it on the 4th of March when I got my income tax back, so I was looking forward to it. Played it quite a bit, then decided not to overuse it because I would look like a fool. Today I finally decided to play it again and when I was rocking it back and forth - weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
Basically my ear-drum shattered due to the high-pitch squeeling. And no, it didn't have any tempo or pitch to it, just one constant "weeeeeeeeeeeee," sound.
So I don't know what's up with it, but I'm pretty pissed. I changed the battery and everything, looked inside and nothing looks out of place. Given, I'm not an expert of technical and mechanical stuff, but I can usually tell when something looks broken. Urgh!
Well, it's under a month old, I haven't had it for 30 days so I should take it back and see if the warranty covers it. If not, even finding out what's wrong would be nice.
Basically because Dimebag Darrell, Kim Thayil and Jerry Cantrell are Hell of guitarists, I want to be somewhat a replicate of all three-in-one.
First thing's first: learn the damn pentatonic scales that Dimebag is so well known for busting out in his solos in both Pantera and Damageplan.
Second: master alternate-tunings when it comes to playing and making songs like Kim Thayil of Soundgarden. He was and probably still is very experimental with the odd-tunings and odd-time fixtures. Something I want to do, as well.
Third: Riff the fuckin' Hell out of the guitar and play a mean solo that's short, sweet and gets to the point. Jerry Cantrell knows how to make them complicated and I can admire his ability just be listening to songs like Love, Hate, Love and Nutshell.
Basically, I came up with a bunch of riffs, solos, etc. since I began playing guitar in June of 2008, so after listening over them and playing them since, I decided to modify quite a bit of them and fix them up so that they sound good.
Made a few songs, recorded them clearly rather than listen to the crappy demo-versions and I'm satisfied with the turn-out.
I might just end up uploading them on here eventually, it all depends on how I feel about them. I just love the mystery of them, having a private collection of my own personal music that nobody else listens to but myself. So by putting them out there might demystify and take away the meaning from a lot of them.
