  1. nothing specific, half the novelty is just the tapes right now. I'm not gonna go out and get heaps anyway, I'm just wondering where they all went. None of my uncles or anyone I know have them, stores don't sell them much.
  2. I've just bought a handful of these for $2 each, it's not music I really love but I think I'd rather have cassettes than CDs almost, although they're kind of fiddly to play. Does anyone still have theirs from the 80s or whenever they were popular? I could only find about 2 dozen second hand ones in the record store.
  3. At work in my tea-break, trying to communicate with a couple of friendly and hilarious customers with a mouth full of apple. small thing
  4. been doing Paint it Black, because all the notes on the e and B strings are easier on my tendonitis. it's pretty fun to play around with the humming e string
  5. You're better off finding a neck style that suits you rather than trying to mimic jimmy page's neck. those tiny details are more personal. Perhaps if you've got two guitars though, one for you and one for Zeppelin i guess that'd be worth it
  6. i just realised no-one in that Madison Square Garden crowd looks intoxicated, I've been to 3 concerts and there was a constant stream of drunks picking fights and getting dragged out i like how that crowd looks like they're all best friends in it together
  7. They appear about 5 seconds into the solo, after some slow motion clips of Robert, it cuts to a few frames of these guys. Does anyone know who they are or what happened to them? I know they were just some normal kids but they always captured how great Zeppelin was for me, the way one of them is begging Page or Plant to come closer to them, and the other one just looks mindblown.
  8. I'm not a drummer, I'm just going to get some sticks and a pad to help improve my rhythm, and also coz I'd like to start drums later. Can you get silent ones though, that still feel the same, but don't have that clicky sound? My family's real intolerant and wouldnt let me keep one if it was 'loud.' Im just gonna get it without them knowing. Also how much will some cheap sticks and a pad cost?
  9. The album artwork from London Calling and In Through the Out Door, also the photo on my profile's pretty cool, and a photo of Frank Sinatra I once saw that I can't find now
  10. I always want this to come back coz it looked like so much more fun than sitting around 'twittering' or going to disco clubs. But is it still here, is hooning just a new version of it? (if that's just an aussie slang word, im not sure if everyone else uses it, its burnouts and drag racing between traffic lights) Anyway anyone done this 'cruising the loop.'
  11. wow I've always thought the Strat had the warmer tone and the Tele was twangy

  14. I'm interested in playing hard rock riffs, right up to heavy palm muted stuff, but also strummed rhythms, and being able to play rocky solos like Angus Young, jazzy solos with warm soft tones, and shred as well. I know you can shred about equally well on SG, Strat or Tele (maybe less so on the tele but I've seen it done before at my guitar centre). But SGs have got to have the worst clean tones, I know Clapton used one a bit but not on anything really bluesy, it's got a kind of 'buzzy' (that's not the word I'm looking for lol) sound without distortion. And the warm jazzy sound I like is more o
  15. Go to www.ultimate-guitar.com and look around, especially in the forums (click forums then go to the subheading "electric guitar") It'll give you a lot of detail, that question's been asked a million times before. Squier - cheap copies of Fender Epiphone - cheapish copies of Gibson keep in mind a better guitar improves your playing more, to a point. Don't go and buy a $100 one from a general store, go to your equipment centre and ask around.
  16. Song gives me good imagery when I listen to it, pictures of dark cold snowy nights. ^^ It still is pretty jazz-like I reckon
  17. My RE teacher was talking about it today, tomorrow's Beyond Blue depression day and he went off on a rant littered with "bull**** f***ing bloody churchy sh*t f***ing w*nkers" (he's about 60 and he's only employed coz his cousin is in admin, great teacher though and he brings a guitar to class ) Anyway he was going on about how men who think they're too tough to go to a councillor or ask someone for a hug (great impersonations here) used to go down to the pub to the men-only bar to talk about whatever they wanted and wind down, but now noone does that coz they've all gone to nightclubs with "t
  18. yes Frank Sinatra. it's just a cool photo don't really like his music
  19. It's a black and white one, taken from a low angle behind him while he's facing the crowd, I think he has his hands in the air and there's sort of mist/smoke around his head where the spotlight hits it, he might even be smoking.
  20. you just rekindled my desire to learn the drums. I gave up on it ages ago, my parents wouldn't let me so i started guitar, which probably was a good thing coz if I'd got drums, i couldnt have practiced them hours a day without pissing off the whole neighbourhood. Still, I think I should learn drums, use guitar to write songs and drums coz they're so much fun. Had a go with some sticks and a tamborine once hehe couldve sat there for hours
  21. Do you think it's ok if you write a song and at the time you think it's completely original, then realise later that it sounds like another song that you know? Obviously if you're not sharing it with anyone else then it doesn't matter but if you perform it and take credit for it and all that?
  22. 2-4 are some of my favourites by anyone, 1 was very good, HOTH was very good, but after that it just lost some of the magic. Would you listen to them much if you didn't know it was Zeppelin?
  23. great articles. haha the ad for yngwie licks on the last one
  24. Yeah I don't think they played at Subiaco Oval in Perth. good page though some of those places looked pretty cool
  25. How did they get that sound on Heartbreaker, when they're all pounding their instruments after the solo, and for a couple of seconds it sounds like the speakers are gonna blow, and I don't think they just played loud and heavy coz I've heard other songs where they do that and the sound still stays pretty clean. I love it though. And are there any recording companies still around that do it like that, instead of cleaning everything up into little even boxes and perfect notes?
