“Bar Rescue” Episodes and Failures

I’ve been hooked on Bar Rescue since it first came out. It’s another show like Kitchen Nightmares where the host, Jon Taffer, turns over a bar that’s not doing hot and tries to set them up for success. It’s always the same formula: Hidden survellience of the bar. Some screaming at the employees for how shitty of a job they’re doing, introduce new menu/design/drink list and relaunch the new concept.

Purchase the new episode here! Purchase the new episode here!

I always think of what happens with these places after the cameras and hype are gone. They all apparently do pretty well the first month after their relaunch but then the numbers go back to what they were originally. This is a list of the episodes showing which bars went are still open, changed back to their original name or closed their doors. Surprisingly, only a few shut down shop out of a good list of bars, and the majority seem to have stuck with it and gone on.

What bass effects should I get that are more experimental?

I'm looking for bass pedals that can create really weird and cool sounds for solos. I already have fuzz, overdrive, distortion, delay, and wah.

[DISCUSSION] how do you keep track of riffs in your head?

I always get these great ideas for riffs or chord progression, but when I sit down hours later to play it out, I forget the whole damn thing. I've been thinking about recording my humming of my ideas when they happen. How do you put music from head to paper?

[DISCUSSION] What are some great guitar albums of the past decade?

I'm not up to speed on music at all. I get recommendations from friends but nothing guitar related.

So what are some great albums that feature killer guitar playing? Can be any style. Just tell me why it's great and what style it is. Bonus points for including an example youtube or Spotify link.

To all the multiscale/fanned fret bass players in the world…

What's it like playing one? I've been looking into buying a Ibanez srff805 because the concept behind the fanned frets seems cool. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

[QUESTION] Practicing Schedules?

I know this question has been asked a lot but wanted to know if anyone could point me in some sort of direction on how to practice in a way that isn't just noodling around or reading tabs of songs. I've been playing for about 5 years and i'm in a band that does covers and a few originals and I would like to buff up on scales and music theory and how they work together in terms of key and whatnot, and also want my improvisational skills to improve. Thanks in advance for any help, specific practice activities or any other ideas for a schedule that will help me get better!
