    So I was looking at Jeff Hughell videos and found this guy.

    The diminished run in the beginning is kinda cheesy and predictable of the genre, but wow is he fast, and wow that's a lot of strings.

    I can't do that, but even while I respect the ability to do it, I don't care much for the sound of it.

    (EDIT: A better representation of what a Warr can be used for is on a video on their website: http://www.warrguitars.com/artist_series/ - The guy who does that video almost make me want to waste the money to get one to try out.)

    Great sweeping chops, but in the end it just turns into a guitar solo.
    Still, not trying to diss, great technique, he sure knows his way around 10 strings, that ocean of strings can be a pain to mute. :bassist:

    It's a Warr - they're kinda hybrids.

    They have a regular bass series and another series that more effectively distinguishes between the guitar and bass halves, but yea. They're basses, with a little extra added on.

    It's not a Warr guitar, he built it himself.
    I think the lowest string is a C# and the highest string is a Bb.
  9. That cracked me up.
  10. Jeff is a machine, i prefer his work in Brain Drill though

    every time i see death metal the novelty never wears off. technical death metal is even funnier
  12. Looks like he is sitting in an enclosed porch - wankery to me - but I hate to be negative about anyone's playing as there is already way to much of it here and elsewhere - so good for him for stretching out with his 10 String!

  14. I like plenty of metal, but that really annoyed my ears.
