I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

comment Play Side Stick (SS) on Electric Drums
I'm guessing the technique won't work -- but of course you can get the sound itself by loading a sidestick sound into whatever pad/zone you like.

comment Speakers for electronic keyboard
My angle is, of its good enough to reproduce a CD, it's good enough to directly play an instrument you might record onto CD.

comment Is the sound of a semi-hollowbody guitar significantly different from that of an equivalent solid body?
Since electric-acoustic guitars are really susceptible to nasty howling feedback, I suspect that hollowbodies have different feedback characteristics to solidbodies when played with loud amps and lots of gain. But I don't know enough to write an answer of my own. Care to add something on this topic?

comment How to do “metal” harmonics (pinch etc)
Also a hot pickup helps a lot. Even the best harmonics merchants will struggle with a quiet passive pickup.
