How good are you on the drums, and do you use a metronome? My brother has an electronic kit he doesn't use, I just can't get the hang of it. I'm trying to learn to record my own music from start to finish (drum, bass, guitar), but maintaining the rhythm and time like on a stringed instrument is foreign using both hands and feet. Using his real kit feels more natural, but I'm making more noise than music and it's a little embarrassing since all my neighbors can hear.

That's exactly how I feel about drums.

I wish I had the money to get a kit here so I can sit in my garage and play and not care what anyone thinks.

I wish I had a kit as well. I can play drums pretty well I'd say (at least for a guitarisier)

I haven't legit played my guitar in over 3 weeks. I can't play anything cleanly, my technique seems like it completely left me, I feel like I did a year and a half ago.
I don't know what the **** is wrong with me.

I've been trying to play more with a pick, and am starting to see some improvements finally. I used to hate playing with a pick.

I'm the opposite. I've been playing my Carvin a lot more since I've been home, and I feel like I've really learned to take advantage of how smooth and speedy of a guitar it is, as well as the nuances in the sound one can achieve with a floyd. I've been dialing in some cool tones I didn't think I could get before, and in general I'm quite happy with my playing. I'm better than I've ever been.

Except I have nobody to play with now.

I am not very good on drums by any means. The greatest things about the set is that it's a lot of fun to practice on and, when it comes to composition, I can at least get the basic kick, snare and hi-hat pieces in to Ableton and then modify pieces from there.

For some reason, writing in Guitar Pro is ****ing simple.

Whenever I take a break I always seem to play a lot better once I start again. Except I'll end up straining my wrist or something.

You're crazy. It takes me 15-20 minutes for my hands to warm up every day, and if I skip a week+ of playing, I lose track of what I was doing previously and have to relearn.

I get better after a long break. I get better from practicing too.

I think it's all in how you apply yourself.

My friend has a custom Les Paul with a Floyd Rose in his music store that I've fallen in love with. He's going to be checking the books and letting me know how much he has to get for it. I love having a friend that owns a music store, instruments and whatnot at cost. Also found some great playing/sounding acoustics, called Recording King. They're Martin knockoffs, and are pretty damn nice for the price. Sound really good too.

I don't know yall's budgets, but there's an amazing deal on a Blue Cactus mic on ebay right now.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Blue-Cactus-...em 23259e82f4

I think we paid over $6k for ours.

I'll try and remember to listen to it when I get home.

WARNING: I have terrible short-term memory.

I thought it was pretty good, your tone could use a little work, and I didn't care too much for the left guitar around 1:30 I think, but all in all it's a pretty cool piece.

Well, not price wise... just everything there makes me cream my pants. I found myself picking up a guitar and saying "its my dream guitar!" every 30 seconds....

I don't think I've ever found my "dream" anything at Guitar Center. My Carvin came close though, which is why I bought it. But it was used, and not normal GC stock anyways.

They don't even have Rockerverbs. Just rows of Line 6's, followed by lower tier modern Marshalls, and about a thousand overpriced Mesa's that they go ape**** if you touch. Guitars are usually a hundred Strats that all play exactly the same, a bunch of signature models nobody cares about, and usually the ****tiest selection of Gibsons.

I buy strings there. And browse their used pedals. That's about it.
