Steve Smallwood’s Intro

I would like to welcome the 2010 Defcon Deathmatch Champion to our review team. Everyone knows how much Justin has embraced his love for extract over the years. I do believe Justin has met his match with Steve. The guy absolutely loves the stuff. So if you have an extract for the guy to try out, then contact me and I will get you his address for the review. Until then, Steve will have to settle for the lighter heat levels. Welcome to the fold Steve, I am glad to have ya!

    I sure hope you’re not a Bengals fan…lol

    I was the same way – completely self-taught. My main sources of info on playing techniques were Doug Mark’s Metal Method series, mags like Guitar World, GFTPM, and Guitar Player, and watching Live Without a Net literally almost every night for a year and a half (it truly tested the limits of what VHS tapes could endure! 😉 )

    I’ve had various Fender Strats, Kramer Barettas and a few EVH guitars like the Peavey Wolfgang over the years, but have since sold most of ’em. I’ve used numerous DOD, Boss and MXR effects pedals (was never into rack-mounted f/x). My favorite amp of all time was the original Carvin X100B 4×12 half stack. It’s provided a lot of faithful service over the years, it produces a sweet tone, and the only thing I’ve had to replace on it have been tubes once and many blown fuses. :_thumbsup:

    I’ve never used metal method videos.I really the Wolfgang and Musicman guitars they are sweet.I have a Kramer neck that’s new still from 90s.I am hoping to make a project out of it.Would be cool to hang out and Jam sometime.I have some tutorial dvds I can probably burn you a copy if you like.

    I did the Metal Method courses when they were on cassette tape and before they did videos. Boy, how much does that date me? 🙂

    Wow! I guess you learn something new everyday, Scott I always had a suspicion you were once big into the metal guitar shredding. and Steve, welcome aboard! I had one metal method cassette that i remember very vividly, it was for the Steve Vai segment from the Movie Crossroads, when a young Ralph Macchio was “cuttin heads” with the devil’s henchman, Jack Butler! I was mostly self-taught throughout the young years, but studied classica for awhile when I was at IU. I’ve always preferred the Ibanex RG series, low price, and long life, put that into one SUPERFUZZ BIG MUFF, CRY BABY WAH, and BOSS Digital Delay and it’s good to go. These days I’ve turned in most of the playing and just play a little here and there on an Alvarez acoustic.
