Probably been said already but I'm getting a copy of rocksmith xb360.

Been playing for 2-3 years mainly classical but being able to play a song I really enjoy all the way through will be great Phone Post

All this talk about buying guitars made me go buy a new one today. Jackson soloist, through body neck and emg 81/85 pickups. This neck feels like its made of butter its so slick and these emg pickups are insane. I might as well put my other girls in their cases cause I don't see myself putting this bitch down for awhile.

Congrats on your JV Strat. Remember, there are 12 notes and put them in whatever order that sounds good to YOU.

it varies.  I don't play that much during the week but my band plays between 4 and 8 four hour gigs every month. I can go as long as 2 or 3 months without changing them.  On the other hand, my band's other guitar player breaks strings left and right and he changes them a lot more often.

fuck that. I'm not going on stage playing something that looks like a giant dong.  But I would play a vag-caster if they made one.

How hard would it be to play this? The second half obviously.

I'm not a big metal head but Metallica did such an awesome rendition of one of my favourite compositions of all time. It would be cool to play that one day.

God I hate Hammett's use of a wah.
Its really doesn't sound all that complicated, the wah makes it sound like there is more going on than there is. Phone Post

It all depends, if you wash your hands before you play and wipe them down after, humidity, how hard to strike the strings.
You will know when they need to be changed, your fingers won't slide as easily , the sound will be different. Being newb you will probably be breaking high E strings for awhile so that would e a good time to change the rest.
Being that you have a tremolo bridge(the thing your strings attached to on the guitar body) don't remove all the strings at once, replace 1 at a time. Phone Post

No shit? Interesting.

Is the wah what creates the weeping sound?
