Red Rum limited run

So, i just bought myself a 2011 Red Rum Custom model for 900$, honestly a steal as it also has an aftermounted Sustainiac. I was thinking i know these were of a limited run but i couldn't find any exact numbers to how many? Some claimed there was 150 (50 Custom s) and 100 Customs. although i never found any proof this was true or false. I thought this might be the place to ask incase anyone has any insight on this

A Lesson About Art, Enjoyment, and Fulfillment from Kurt Vonnegut (author)

In 2006 a high school English teacher asked students to write a famous author and ask for advice. Kurt Vonnegut was the only one to respond - and his response is magnificent:
“Dear Xavier High School, and Ms. Lockwood, and Messrs Perin, McFeely, Batten, Maurer and Congiusta:
I thank you for your friendly letters. You sure know how to cheer up a really old geezer (84) in his sunset years. I don’t make public appearances any more because I now resemble nothing so much as an iguana.
What I had to say to you, moreover, would not take long, to wit: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.
Seriously! I mean starting right now, do art and do it for the rest of your lives. Draw a funny or nice picture of Ms. Lockwood, and give it to her. Dance home after school, and sing in the shower and on and on. Make a face in your mashed potatoes. Pretend you’re Count Dracula.
Here’s an assignment for tonight, and I hope Ms. Lockwood will flunk you if you don’t do it: Write a six line poem, about anything, but rhymed. No fair tennis without a net. Make it as good as you possibly can. But don’t tell anybody what you’re doing. Don’t show it or recite it to anybody, not even your girlfriend or parents or whatever, or Ms. Lockwood. OK?
Tear it up into teeny-weeny pieces, and discard them into widely separated trash receptacals. You will find that you have already been gloriously rewarded for your poem. You have experienced becoming, learned a lot more about what’s inside you, and you have made your soul grow.

God bless you all!"
Kurt Vonnegut

The lesson? Create the art for yourself first. Experience the joy of creating something from nothing, for the pure joy of it.

Have a great day, peeps!

  • Question
LIBAD Guitar...

Hey all,

Kind of a niche question, but does anyone know if/when this guitar will release? I saw Avenged live at MSG and I can't stop thinking about this guitar, but I also couldn't find anything online about it. I know it's a shot in the dark but I'm wondering if anyone knows about this guitar lol.

Does It Seem Like Social Media Is Dying To You?

I was honestly just thinking. Do you feel like social media isn't as engaging as it use to be? I took a break from it for a long time, but I ended up back in it as it seems to be the only way these days to truly market yourself. However, I feel like it's all smoke and mirrors when it comes to truly getting a platform going. For example, you have guitarists on Instagram with over a half a million followers but they play shows to like, 50-100 people. There's like 60 comments on their posts.
When I first got on Instagram, it was thriving. And not just for me, but for everyone else, too. I hardly see my friends getting any engagement on their posts. It's not just IG either. Facebook and Twitter seem to be flatlining.
I also wonder if the watered down sponsored content, forced influencer content and endless ads could have been a contribution to it.

A while ago, @Lindsey made a post about "where do you see music going in the future?" And it made me think about this: do you think streaming will be the new social media? Maybe that's why engagement on here has been down over the last two years. Maybe the consumer norm is starting to switch from a text based form of communication to streaming. I think @Mike Creuzer mentioned this in the webinar.

Anyway, it just got me interested in everyone's ideas. I'd love to hear @Jamie London 's thoughts on this for sure!!

Do you think streaming is on the way of replacing social media as we know it?

SynTV was a fantastic idea, that's for sure!

Synner App problems

Hi I am having two issues with the Synner App right now:

1. On my tablet, when I open the app I have the option to Login or Register, if I click login I will always get an "404 this page cannot be found."

Register seems to work fine, but I cannot login as if the link isnt available anymore.

2. I cannot download the app on my phose as the Play Store says: This app isn't available for your device because it was made for an older version of Android.

I dont mind not having the app on my phone but Id love to login on my tablet so I can learn outside of my computer room.

Thank you!!

Selling my USA built Hellwin top!

Im selling my USA Schecter Hellwin 100 head! DM me on facebook for more information and quicker answers!
It’s in mint condition, stored in a hardcase and played very very rarely.
Only malfunction is one of the lights in the footcontroller blinks instead of constantly glowing. (Recieved it this way after importing it and Schecter tried to fix it but the problem remained when i got it back) The controller works fault free otherwise!
Im located in Sweden but can ship worldwide, thank you!

"Raiding" Synner Spotify profiles

Hey Synners.

@Possessed Sinner gave me an idea for this thread. Dunno if this is allowed, but it might...sorta help artists I guess :LOL:.

Let's use this thread to drop our Spotify profiles so we can follow and listen to our music, should people desire this.

Here's mine:

Tales of a Musician - The Playlisting Conundrum

Hello everyone.

A while back I created a post detailing how things have changed after about a year of me being a full-time musician. At least I think I did because for the life of me I couldn't find it.

But anyway, let's consider this as part 2 (of an undefined number) of that discussion. And this time around, I'm going to talk a bit about my experiences getting myself playlisted on Spotify.

Now in an ideal scenario, you release a song, it somehow gets picked up by Release Radar on Spotify and you're on your way to making approximately $4 per 1000 streams in no time, which of course will translate into about a million listeners a month forever and you're set.

Like I said, ideal scenario...

But since reality is often disappointing, you'll most likely end up having to find other ways of getting yourself playlisted. Now if you're going to talk to people in the music industry, they'll probably end up recommending SubmitHub as a platform. If you know such a person, consider that person a high-tier demon and send The Doom Slayer (or Doomguy if you will) after said person. And of course, you may want to stay away from that money drain, I'd honestly suggest getting a large menu at McDonald's instead of spending your money on SubmitHub.

So we've established that SubmitHub is a useless platform. Honestly, if you're a musician, just write that down somewhere so you don't forget.

What does one do now? Well, there are other free ways to do it. You could curate a playlist yourself, adding some of your songs and songs by bands/artists you sorta sound similar to, and then find ways to promote it so people will listen to it, and as a result, your songs. Or you could use free platforms like Daily Playlists, though the results may not be as good as you might hope. At least it's free though...

Honestly, the best solution I found was searching for paid options, but be very aware that the company you're paying is legit and doesn't use bots. Spotify doesn't like that and those streams are, in fact, meaningless.

So yeah, been having some fun lately. I guess the point of this post though can be summed up in one song title: "I'm Going Slightly Mad" :LOL:. The least I hope is that you get some enjoyment out of it xD.

hello there

Hello everybody!! Im ryuk, a guitarist kinda obvious but yeah, i've started playing guitar 12 years ago but i wasn't really that motivated until 7 years ago, i am 16 years old soon 17, ive been learning by my own until recently because i didnt know my keys nor scales i was just playing by ear or looking at tabs the whole time... yeah that was until recently i learned about the guitar lessons here, since Synyster Gates was the reason why i got motivated at playing guitar, I've decided to start learning here and so far it really helped me alot, im in a band im the lead guitarist and singer im mostly the one who compose, and by ear its really hard to share with my bandmates those riffs and ideas i have, as i had no clue what so ever about the notes i was playing and in what key i was, although im still learning and there's still alot more to learn, just a few lessons really helped me understand more guitar in general, So thank you Synyster and Mr Gates. Sr for helping me get better and learn the scales and keys as i really needed to learn those, but there is still alot of things for me to learn here so i should get back to it :cool:

New to the community

Hey everyone! I've been playing guitar for almost 7 years now, and I am 15 years old. I'm not entirely new here, as I have been learning for a month now, but I thought to finally post something on here. The reason I joined was because my biggest influence was Synyster Gates, but one problem. I had no clue how to play like him. Until I joined this community. Before I joined I had been stuck in a massive plateau not making much progress and being stuck, but that all changed when I joined. I learned more stuff in a week, such as harmonic minor with the modes, melodic minor, the blues scale, the major and minor modes, and more, but not only did I learn to play a style like syn and get better at his style, but it made me a better guitar player in general and more rounded. A couple of months ago I joined my high school jazz band not expecting much, but because the knowledge I learned here made it easier to understand how jazz works and how I can incorporate blues with my playing in the jazz band and at home. So thank you Synyster and Mr Gates. Sr for helping me become a way greater and better guitar player than I had ever imagined becoming.

Hey everyone!

It’s been a while since we last made an update on things and there are good reasons for it. In the past year, Syn and the team have been thinking about the evolution of Synner and today we are ready to announce the first phase of this new chapter.

The first change is that the forums will drastically be reduced and will be used for questions about the lessons content (lessons content only) for the moment.

We invite you all to join the Official Avenged Sevenfold Discord as all the community aspects of Synner will happen on there from now on.

The second change is about the lessons. You all know by now that we had a little incident last year with our lessons. We are still working hard to recover and re-sync them all and while we made a lot of progress, it will take time before it’s all back up to normal.

More importantly, the lessons will migrate to SynTv which is where the focus of our attention will be in the next phase. Their transfer will begin shortly, in the next couple days/week.

I know that this will come as bad news for some of you. But know that all those decisions were taken after much consideration following the vision that Syn has for Synner. This is the start of something new as we aim to have the most modern experience with the best technology for everyone. And while the form changes, Synner is here to stay!

If you have any question, we will be happy to answer them below.

Thank you everyone!

BIG NEWS - "Nobody" Guitar

Just talked with Syn, and the headless "Nobody" guitar WILL be getting a limited production run with Schecter! Availability and pricing (the "wen?" and "how much?") are TBD, but this IS happening. All models will have the "Synarchy" logo at the 12th fret and no other top markers - super clean. It will come in three models:
100 Gold 7 string headless
100 Large Silver Flake 6-string headless
20 "Acid Rain" 6 string with headstock

The Acid Rain finish will be distressed or "relic'd" with these final touches personally done by Syn.

wassup everybody

I'm Bishop, I guess I'd be considered an intermediate guitarist (3 years). Synyster really inspires me to push myself further on guitar and learn new things. I'm trying to teach myself some music theory even though it's a little annoying. originally, I didn't know that there was lessons on this site so I've been checking them out (y)


My name is Trident, I joined Synner a couple months ago but am just now introducing myself. I’ve been playing guitar since my freshman year of high school and im now 20 years old. I didn’t really take it seriously until my Jr year of high school though. I don’t know much theory or anything but I can play some songs and noodle around. As most of us are here for, im here to improve my guitar playing!

  • Question
Not guitar related, this question is wackerman/studio question that is probably a long shot but still interesting nonetheless.

Just let me start off by saying how excited i am to get back into teaching and learning more guitar. I love this website you guys. fucking nailed it.
what got me back to it was honestly i started learning and teaching drums. A7x being my absolute favorite band of all time so obviously those were the first songs i wanted to learn and

Holy F@#$^* SHit i thought syn's solo progressions were insane but i never noticed how complex the drums really are in a lot of Wackermans work. specifically on paradigm and the entire stage albumn really.

BUt anyway learned them all on guitar so fuck it drums should be cake compared to syn. *the cake is a lie*

However...i did learn the song...... yet ive only been playing drums for 2 months now...using an invisible drum kit... yes im serious my drum kit is invisible

well its a beta app in virtual reality to be more specific...but no seriously invisible :oops:

well anyway i chart drums tracks for the vr app,, which is similar to guitarhero, except the kit is real, and its FUCKING invisible.
so anyway my question was if at all possible to whom it may concern i wanted to ask for permission to use one of the tracks for a tutorial on how to build charts and kits for the app. with hopes to try and get more and more people into charting their own drums instead of flooding my inbox with song request as i am 1 of 3 charters atm trying to revive and entire guitar hero and rockband community into REAL invisible drums.

it wont be played all the way through and maybe only 30 or 40 seconds of the audio will be heard. but anyway thought id try my luck.
I currently have what im almost 99.9% sure is the most accurate chart for the stages drum track that doesn't exist anywhere else except wackermans brain. and my chart folder.
i made it an obsession to get the drums perfectly accurate..
