How good is the bc rich metal master Guitar?

looks cool but its a fancy BC Rich warlock bronze series, if you can get it for under 300$ your getting a good deal.

comfortable, light , very versatile pickups but metal comes from you, so switch the strings and put a low tuning. But honestly though keep saving up, the best warlocks right now that are affordable are the IT series ones, 100$ more online but you will like it 10x more.

metal comes from within though, thick strings, knowing what to play.. those sort of things.

Can Gibson '57 Classic and classic plus be used for modern metal?

I know EMG's are the standards for todays modern metal bands. I have nothing against them but I want to have a little different sound than what everyone else is playing. I've read several great reviews on these pickups however not much on if they are good for metal or not. They will be going into an Epiphone Les Paul Studio if that makes a difference and I also use a Metal Muff pedal for distortion.

it should be fine if you just tune your guitar to the song tuning it also help full to have a amp to set it to metal with this should make your playing sound great if you have this most electric guitars will be good for any genre of music but you must have good pickups you can get these with a good brand guitar

TV Programming and Commercials

In the Andy Griffith episode The Guitar Player who is the real guitarist playing the Jim Lindsey guitar part?

I wrote to James Best and he told me he faked the guitar playing, and did not reveal who the musician was.Listen to the last, long riff at the end of the first guitar segment of episode #31, Jim at Sheriff's office with Andy & Barney,(available on youtube): Fast, jazzy & technically superior. Someone's hands are shown close-up, playing the riff, but not the face. The shot is edited in & out, not panned to & away from, ie: not James . Episode #3: The actor's hands are avoided by the camera. Being a major CBS show , this was probably the network staff session player, (they don't have those anymore), who was probably a well known jazz man, too. Still a mystery, though.

If my memory serves me, the guitarist is Herb Ellis. His name appears in the credits after the show. To those unfamiliar with the name he is a world class jazz guitarist and as with many of them, played on many rock n' roll era recordings. UPDATE: It turns out there is also an -actor-,(not the guitarist), named Herb Ellis, and Mr. Ellis plays a character in that episode. When I discovered this, I continued my search for the soundtrack's actual guitarist. After checking the credits of various player, it turns out that Howard Roberts is the only one who lists the Andy Griffith Show. This also makes sense musically, as Roberts was one of the few who played jazz and rock 'n roll with equal authenticity. Howard Roberts, absolutely.

He is a Libertarian. He was also listed on the Arkansas Projects's list of Republican Rock Stars.

Jimi Hendrix

How much was Jimi Hendrix worth when he died?

Jimi Hendrix is PRICELESS. He played for the love of music. Simple as that.

I think you would need to know the value of his "estate" which would be all his worldly goods and monies he was due to at the time of his death, his estate is probably worth far in excess of what it would have been when he died with all the royalties from record sales since his death

How does Paco de Lucia play guitar so quickly?

Paco is the only flamenco guitarist in the world who uses three fingers to play picado.Picado is rest stroke with i,m,a fingers.Important to note that it HAS to be rest stroke,free stroke would make it TREMELO and sound soft and lack attack.

not true

: Paco plays over 95% of his picados with only 2 fingers-- index and middle. Gerardo Nuñez often uses all 3 fingers for his picados, so the idea that Paco in the "only" player to do this is completely false. Paco achieves his speed with consistently flawless technique, slow exercises, confidence, good circulation, painstakingly filed fingernails, and on top of this, an incredible talent for moving his fingers quickly and accurately. Back in the 1970's when I was taking Flamenco guitar lessons there used to be speculation about whether the great guitar players used three fingers for picking. The few people who I knew who had seen Paco or Serranito playing always claimed they had never seen them use anything other than the first and second fingers. Now we've got YouTube you can check it out. I remember talking to a guy who met Paco when he was performing in Australia with the Luisillo dance company. His picado was just as fast then, when he was about fifteen, as it was when he started making records. He says himself in a documentary about him called Light And Shade, that he spent many hours in his room with the guitar in his early teens and some people say his father was extremely intent on making him a star, so he imposed a disciplined routine on Paco. Just as an interesting aside, the only guitarist who certainly used anything but the usual fingers was Manitas De Plata who used the first and third fingers for picado. He was a Basque gypsy with a very rough technique but very popular with the public. He taught that technique to a friend of mine and the theory behind it was that because the first and third fingers are more or less equal in length, it's easier to pick that way. I used it myself for a couple of years but eventually went back to the normal way.
