Speed D by VanHeist Speed D by VanHeist
Started the day with some Didi, which became this after listening to a bunch of speedy metal alongside :headbang:

Didi's not half as brutal as Gogo, but her technical acumen and speed is her strength. Plus, when she focuses her enormous brain, it can yield sweet results (like a string-shredding, ear-blistering, impossibly high tempo guitar solo)

anyway, fun to do, back to work!

DID YOU KNOW: There's a new metal movement similar to the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM), this time around called New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal (NWOTHM), focusing on bringing back that classic 80's style metal. Fancy a listen to Striker and marvel at their ridiculous album art (as 80's album covers often were): [link]

Do you have Spotify, btw?

I don't know why, but I thought of Didi as more of an acoustic sort, something like an L-5 or an Ovation.

Then again, I can easily imagine her wailing "FÜr Elise" or "Ride of the Valkyries" on a Jackson. Or an Gibson Explorer, or a Steinberger for that matter.

*pictures Didi doing some of the shred-tacular moments of songs like "Romanticide," "Dead to the World," or "Last Ride of the Day"

I can see this so easily as her way to blow off anger.

One can blow off steam and stress singing along with the cute girlfriend, particularly when you aren't all that stressed a person to begin with, but sometimes you just need to throw the floodgates open.

Nice! Personally, I'm picturing a sound somewhere between Animals As Leaders' progressive weirdness and Yngwie Malmsteen's Baroque-influenced bombast (probably helps that I am currently listening to the latter), with maybe a quick burst of the Nyan Cat music just because. Of course, I may just be overthinking it like the music addict I am. XD As a guitarist, I really appreciate the detail you put into Didi's axe, even putting a good rendition of the Jackson Guitars logo/font on the headstock. A lot of artists seem to take a lot of shortcuts when drawing electric guitars, so it's refreshing to see someone care a bit more. :)

I'll be the first to admit i'm a music fan, but no expert. Personally I like power balanced with melody, both vocally and instrumentally, although in either case a show of force is a welcome sound.

As for the guitar, again, no expert, and like everything else i learn as i go, but I equipped her with a modified Jackson Soloist. I kinda got lazy with the logo (ugh) but Didi's made some tweaks to the instrument's pickups and vibrato system. SCIENCE WILL BUILD A BETTER GUITAR! THE FUTURE IS SHINY! :headbang:

I always imagined Didi would be more about vibraphones and musical glasses and stuff than sweet licks.

I guess. I find myself thinking of Yuki Nagato, from Haruhi Suzumiya. Basically a living computer, so she was an instant expert at guitar.

I can't get myself to like Didi, she just seems very different from the first time Gogo created her from her body. Not sure why but I don't, I love Gogo though hahaha
