FAQ59 - HOUSE TOUR, OPETH, NE OBLIVISCARIS, LABELS OR NOT
Hello I'm Ola marshland, and thank you so much for watching my channel and buying merch from my, merch. Store. I have some very exciting news, if you're down, under, in, Australia, I'm. Happy to announce that I'm, going to Australia in April, next year with, the haunted the Hornet is touring with at the gates and witchery, and we, will go to I. Don't know what cities but check, the poster here buy some tickets and, I'll see you there it's gonna be awesome I'm looking for going back to Australia and. Hopefully. Also New Zealand we'll just have to speak so it's gonna be a full solaar, evening, with three, bands using, solar guitars yeah it's gonna be awesome it's good for me Oh laying them the Swede and the what's. Owner president. Of solar guitars it's good marketing. First. Question thank you hey, Lola as an independent artist so Lars is it better in the current age to release songs through, sites like district, hit or maybe try with a record label or maybe both cheers, okay. This is a question. That I've talked about a fair bit and there's, even a video of me from, Tolman where I talk about this and a lot of people saw that video and said like hey viola, you, suck and maybe. You should release all the solo because your music sucks. People. Totally miss the points and, are just being assholes the, thing about having a label is that they, will release the album for you so you cannot, do, both I think unless you have a record. Deal that. Specifically. Says that you, will release and publish your own songs, there's, deals like that if you're not been coming band with not, many, followers, I would suggest you, try and build a following first, before. Releasing an album I've said it countless, times before, maybe, you should release singles you know just, to have something some news going all the time rather. Than just you know release an album and then, it's done basically, then it's gone and if, you don't have any followers. Or if you don't have any fans that, will listen to your music you're wasting, an album, so I think it's way better to build up a height with. To something, with. With. Singles, or shorts clips, or whatever. Today just tried to make something different you know do videos do whatever, you can to market, yourself and, your brand, and. Your band sorry I think it's very important, to find all these small elements, that, will eventually become. Your band I think it's stupid to just focus, on one thing and that is to just release songs I think it's. Gonna be a lot easier if, you do a lot more things like videos and so, on and it's. All about building a hype today and. There. You go so district, and yeah I think it's definitely the way to go if you're a small band do all the publishing, yourself, and you, know keep, ownership. Of, your stuff in the beginning and then if a label comes out make sure it's, a good deal otherwise. You're. Not gonna it doesn't, make any sense for for, you to be sign on a label they're just gonna take all your money maybe. Not but okay oh I'll send me a free, one by twelve hey sue and I get people in Texas to buy lots of people in Texas Ola creepy. Mcpeepers. Great. Name a little a little note, here I think, you've got, wrong eye I'm not s ooh. You. Know I'm Old England so. I think that, it would be a great idea if, you just asked, the Brad hey sue instead, of me because I have nothing to do with a sue more than I that I own a cabinet, so, there. You go I'm, not sponsor or anything like that just email them and then maybe they can send you a free one by twelve because, I know there's a lot of people in Texas. Hi. Ola how to drop down a standard, tube guitar to D with. An every tune bridge okay, I actually have a video on this I'll link it somewhere but, I show, you that. How. I got how I do it when I go from like, standard, tuning, to a drop D tuning with, the evertune bridge without using, the. Averaging key and tuning, at the bridge so, what I do is that I tune my guitar to. The drop tuning. So I to, my guitar to drop C for instance and then, when I tune up to standard. I tune up using the tuner you usually, set, the tension. Of the string. Just, before it goes sharp so for, that when. You're a drop it's, as close as it can to go and sharp so you just tune up the string, until it, reaches the standard tuning and then you can go back pretty.
Quick So that's how I do it it's very fast and convenient other than you doing it the other way around where you tune full, guitar in standard E and try to drop you just have to turn. Your tuner way too long. If you do it like that. Only. Only good answers today I'm. Not feeling it 9:40. Of course I'll stay man you're amazing dude I think I was in my period, when I wrote that before. Okay. So this is this is Diego Diego, said, that he was upset, that I didn't do children. About the. Book. Children. Of Bodom. Maybe I should practice my Swedish will avoid he was little more sorry so, he was pissed, off that I didn't make children, of bodom video and I said no and, then. I I, told him the reason why and now he made this beautiful comic, and we're friends again it's, amazing, in, the world of YouTube however we're. Gonna check your original, comic just read all what, was it Alex, Eli how has done a lot for metal guitar riding something that feared haunted and even as if you are yet to achieve some kind of lame answer yeah, I'm, just, so you know even, though we're we're, friends, I never, forget, a comment and right. Now you're on my goth, list so there you go, but. Nice to be friends again Diego nice nice. Hyoma. Have you ever considered having a contest where the winner gets, a solar guitar something, like a solo, riff or mixing contest I think it would be a cool way to give back to your fans Cheers, it's. An excellent, idea I agree, there. Is one problem though. People. On YouTube and people in general cannot, handle competitions. Like that people. Are assholes they're. Jealous, they. Are just too immature to be able to be, a part of competition, so no I will not make a competition, like this I rather, do like a lottery thing of, a giveaway or something like that because yeah, people, cannot, handle. Competitions. Because, they just talk, and you know whatever, the outcome is there's always like what, the guy did it better whatever facing. My ass kind of thing you know and people, are just way too entitled, today I'm not gonna do a mixing contest I've done it before and it. Was just a hassle, and people. Are just if, they don't win they're just super pissed off, so, I write or not I said, bases it doesn't bother me that you may or may not make basis, of your guitar company but it hurts me that you skip every person that even brings it up when you choose two questions, to have on the FAQ in the first place not even your website, shows anything under its faq page to answer that question and unless you link exactly. Where you stated, if. You will make them or now which. More, than likely, not, you leave, a disservice to fans, including myself that had a queer out of getting a basis and. I'm not gonna call you an asshole okay thank you so much for not coming man that's all but okay. Every, dump that, has only react, to straight-up answer I just want the answer and move on. Obviously. I've taken a little jab out of people asking for soul our bassist I think. Most. Of you guys understand, that, it's, a repeated question that I beginning for a long time and. My. Answer, is that, I do not discuss, any. Future, malls. Or future, plants, with solar guitars, so, even. Though I was making a base I probably wouldn't, have said or let, you know all my plans okay and, so. So there you I'm sorry that bass. Players can't really handle my. Responses. But, there. You go that's just how it is I don't talk about what's coming, up or giving any time schedules, because then, I have to eat up my own words one day and I, don't like that so I rather, announce, when. Something, is ready to be announced if it's a if. It's a piano or so if it's a couple of drums or you know my own instead of the solar or dildos or something, like that so. There. You go that's just my way of running, my, company obviously I don't want to piss people off it's. Not what I do but I guess. I'm doing it by not, answering so there, you go thank you so much hope you understand, what I'm saying thank, you so much for giving. Me a question greetings, all a lot favored Opeth album and why my. Favorite opeth album is Blackwater, park is, first one I properly, listened to and that. I kept spinning. In. My CD player on, and, on and on it's a lovely, lovely, album, I really like it it's from. Start to finish an epic, epic journey, and I. Think it's the best representative. Of what Opeth. Is. And, should, be in my opinion I also, like watershed, a lot it's a great album it's the last one that, that.
Miko Was growling, on and, there. You go Blackwater, park people it's a great, album if you haven't heard it do yourself a favor check it out I you. Know I really feel like I'm all of the advice here today I really. Asked her into questions. In a good way let's, keep that up question. Of the week how, can I Glee guy like you get such a beauty, do you pay her to marry you love, Yola. Asshole. Your, wife is hot way. Out of your league fit, Nuala. Okay. So, we just worried a some, guy just call me fit. Nila which is basically. Face, but. My. Face looks like a. Have. You listened, to net, oblivious. Garris if not I recommended, that you do and plague flowers, the kaleidoscope. Is spectacular, song although it's long, like most eerie music okay, this. Question are beginning a lot about, this band so I'm gonna check out. Net. Little, believe beasts carries you. Know I figure it's a Japanese, band and, let's. Check it out and play, flowers, that okay here it is hello oh but, I want to see a video. Okay. Do they have any videos huh. Okay intravenous. From. One years ago does. Really look Japanese. What. Do I know I. I don't, know where I got the info, that there were Japanese. All. That's later I'm. A little bit worried about that guy because he's standing there and, that laser, beam I. Okay. I'm pretty sure they're not Japanese. You. Know what I've heard this song. It's. The it's this they're hit oh, thank. God he went out of that beam I was, getting a little worried Oh, a. Little. Ol puffy. Feet. Disgusting. Feet, whoa. Okay, he's entrapped in that laser beam be, careful. Taking. Him taking. A bath and milk. Cool. So, it's my cope of. Like. Good open. Didn't. You say that. Sorry. I like. I still like open it's just that I prefer old over four oh no not the laser beam to be careful, dating. A milk. So. Relaxing, I don't, know what they're singing about but maybe it's singing about being in a spa taking. A milk bath. It. Looks really soothing. I heard. It's good for your skin. Have. You seen the movie the cube there's. A section, where, they get, laser, cuts that's. What I'm kind of like thinking will happen here at the end if, it's true death knell there. Will be laser, cut in the end and they will all die and you can see the insides of you know the brain. Stuff. This. Is cool man. Oh. He's. Left out of play maybe he can stop playing left hand and solos maybe I have to call who do I call. Who's. Holding your fingers over her I. Wonder. Oh it's. Like the spar guy you know when they spot they usually have massages, and stuff so. They have someone that you know makes. Like a, facial. Okay. It's. Just about to get a head massage. During.
The Solo which, makes sense you know when, doing these massages do you have to be really gentle so. I totally understand, the approach of this guy okay so. It's, just a little breast massage. Okay. Soaking, her head it's, good, it's. Very important, okay, what's, happening now oh. She. Oh she became a milk head when, you bathe in milk too. For too long you. Get a milk, head. That. Would be a challenge for the live gig to switch, to the nylon string after the solo I want. To know how they do it I. Thought. It was gonna say very manly. But. It, did a little, disappointed, thank, you so much that was actually really good I've actually heard his song before I'd never seen the video Oh more. Massage more head banging head. Banging into a Sabina okay very, epic Sami i'ma say, okay. Good that was, net. A blow is scary our wrists it, sounds like a skin condition. Today. Okay. Griffith today maybe I should read this. Segment to Pantera, for today because, I just like Pantera so much I'm gonna show you this. Is the intro, riff for, the song heresy, from. The couch from El album and it, goes like this it's all harmonics. So what do you do you put your your, finger. Like. That this. Is really beginner talk. Right now so if, you say like oh I already, know about this I know face. This is for the beginners okay so. You, put your finger, so, it touches the string, you. Do not fret it you do not press you just place. The fingers so it touches the string and then, you pick like, this. That's. How you get an, harmonic cones so the intro for psycho holiday it goes like, this. Something. Like that and. So. Basically what you're doing is moving this harmonic. Like. This. Fifth. Fret for. Free. And then. Here's part. Of the. So. You move from the third fret to. Like. One-third. Off. The, third fret and then. Two thirds of the third fret and then, lastly on this second fret so. He. Says that. Awesome. Oh master suite horror riff of the week thank you so much for, understanding. My, needs I love, that riff that is so awesome I love that riff, more, than my wife no. Did, you did. You record an everlasting, using that seven string or did you drop to near 60 I love it chugging for the vocal kick in never. Last thing is the one, of the few, eight, string, songs I've, ever, ridden. So. It's actually on a next ring yeah. Mr., truth. I, thought. You were trying to keep politics off your channel why would you answer a question from a guy who blatantly takes, a swipe at the POTUS. What. Is that again. Is. That step, president over the United States that idiot, obviously, never had a single circus, class and knows nothing about how, turrets, work and why for the u.s. they are now necessary, China. Has been ripping off the entire world for decades and these liberal morons, will be happy to, just let it keep happening forever. I'm. Not sure we watch the same video is are you sure I was answering a question like this doesn't. Seem like it. Doesn't seem like it. But. You remember I like that thank, you Greg for being a member if you want to be become. A member and be just as awesome as Greg you can click here to the government number and you get all the extra, stuff. That I. Offer. Thank. You Greg I noticed. That when you play power chords on a standard tune guitar use, your index and pinky finger, like Tony Iommi rather, than the, index, and ring, finger is there a particular reason. You. Do that no, reason. Why I do it is that I mean. Awesome. Sound. Sound, awesome I love some, I've always been using the the the. Index and the ring finger. Because. Then you can put the. D. Pinkie on the octave so you get right. But, then when. I started to listen to dream Farah and watched how John Petrucci used his pinky I. Guess. It all comes down to what. Your preference, is and what you're gonna do like if you have a power chord I. Want. To add stuff to your power chord depending if you're. Gonna add something over the root and the fifth here, you're. Going to be in. A much better position if, you use your ring finger or, your. Off. Finger. But. If you're using the pinky. You. Have your these two fingers for you to do whatever chord you want so. That's, a cool chord I like that so it all depends on the application I use both you know. Okay. There you go. Is. There a difference in the quality neck, fret finishing, in the solar artist series versus two one and two guitars thanks a lot hopefully future.
Solar Guitar player no. There's no difference the, only difference, between, the one and the two series for instance and the artist is are. The specs so, the. Guitars are built the exact same way the, feel, of the neck will be exactly the same and yeah. The same model and all that it's basically just spec. Upgrade, when you go from two to one or you, know two artists so there you go thank you for the great question for, making me reptiles, my, own ass will, he continue to do quality control for each solar guitars, so. In the beginning yes, I did all the QC myself, I went there for maybe four oh four, or five times every. Month now we've, been able to hire severe. That I've told you about in the latest at the Q he goes there every month now and that's, good because he's way. Better, we guitar player than me and he's. Just way, more. Anal. About. Things, that means so severe. Has been the one that's been going there every month now so I'm very happy having, in my board so I don't have to go there every month because I have so much other, to do I will still go there maybe two or three times a year to check home things you know Duke QC. But, I think it's very important for me to go there and just say hi to all the people that works, for us and you. Know crates. And builds all these amazing guitars it's very important, for me to to, go there and meet them you know get my personal, a relationship. With them you know and also maybe go and have a drink with them, and party, of. Course there's a beef between Finland, Sweden Norway and Denmark that's, how it's always been kind of like a fight between brothers don't, be lying to non North European viewers. Okay. I look at it at this and now I'm gonna lose all my Norway. Denmark. And Finland, subscribers, but, I see it like this I think. It's a Big Brother syndrome, like not, in the way that you know the government is watching their citizens. It's more like you know I think that Sweden, is the, big brother of all these countries we, don't see. The, beef, but. Finland, Norway and Denmark has, a beef with us so, it's like oh you, know we're just oblivious, and. Everyone's. Just mad, at their big brother Chet, that's not gonna end well okay. Guys let's make a crowdfunding. Campaign to bring back all my subscribers, from, Finland Norway and Denmark I still love you I still love you, I. Know. People may have asked this before but would you be against. The signing and ml shaped guitar with Floyd Rose I would immediately buy, something like that and I'm sure other would, too chairs from Texas I've, answered, this question before, and you, know what it was a long time ago and I think I think. I might. Soften. Up a little bit about the idea to make an ml shaped guitar if. It. Is different, enough and I. Do not want it to be a. Dime. Bag guitar you know if you don't want to say because, I still think the ml shape is cool. But. It has to be different and it, has to be you, know something that you see that it's not a dime bag guitar then I would consider making, one and, but. Then again I don't talk about future products but I just did I guess there, you go a perfect, just ol of the horse, whisperer, ah so. Good at answering questions and, not really. Following. My, own advice. Will, you make any solar bases. Hi. Ola how about a quick house tour please oh yeah. That's gonna be awesome I'm gonna do that okay, I'm gonna bring up light my.
