Post [book] Paul Gilbert, snapshots in time...
OK, to continue the joke from the Guitarist forum...

( http://racerxband.com/board/viewtopic.p ... 1&start=20 )

This book is full of suckiness, and all of the Paul-haters should not download it, because it will expose them to way too much suckiness all at once.

This 100% free book has the same concept as the VIP book but nothing is taken from those sessions, I didn't have to write 75% of the questions, and there's no tab. 110 pages, 8.5x11 paper size, no gratituitous images (unlike the VIP book, I wanted this one to be pared down, distilled, no-frills). All of the images have a purpose!

I was originally going to call it Good Notes By Paul Gilbert, but I got kind-of angry at something minor, so I went backwards to the original title (which I love, but it's cheesy, oh well!) The 2 covers and the center image tie everything together... read the book, you'll get it!

If you print this from your regular home printer, it should look just fine on paper. It ought to print double sided, like a book, too...
One caveat: Don't use it for commercial printing though - as the graphics are 144 dpi, not 300.
The title font is called Royal Acidbath and I couldn't remember where I'd seen it... until I remembered Tushar's article in 2008!

Yes, I read all of that, twice! I had to do layout *and* typesetting. This was a LOT of typing. Only took 8 days at about 3-5 hours a day though (not counting transcription time), unlike the VIP book which took... forever: I'm still working on that one. hehe!

Enjoy! From my RapidShare:

http://rapidshare.com/files/324821601/p ... k-0901.pdf

As a ps - 99% of the world can see these files from my RapidShare just fine. If anyone has trouble viewing this PDF book, could you tell me what you are doing? Could we work through a troubleshooting procedure (if you have time)? As of right now, there are 2 guys on the entire planet that can't see these. The problem is that one of them is rather important. So if any of you have any issues viewing this, please e-mail me!

Wow, that's quite an epic project!

.... but really, Richard Dawkins? I can but hope he means pre-1980s Dawkins (although I guess he has written a handful of good pieces since) :D

Oh, that's great!

Please tell me how it prints - especially how light the background image is, compared to the text. I want there to be great contrast... I lightened up the background twice before publishing.

There is an alternate download link on my blog (on the Interviews catalog page), for those of you who can't download from RapidShare, for whatever reason.

I'm a dork. Aaagh! A printable version has been uploaded, and the link above has been updated.

I'm really sorry for that snafu!
Thanks so much for checking that though because I would have never noticed.

Also:

v.8 of the VIP book, in black with white text, is pretty much ready.
I've finished re-organizing it, so it's slightly more logical then before.
It's 87 pages and 33.6 mb.
I may need to put a couple more images in to it - there are a couple of "mostly black" pages that need spice.
There's plenty of new TAB and text for you guys! It IS printable. :)

She claims to be a girl... but some are still in doubt. I've told her to post some pics :lol: It definately can increase her popularity by 69% at least!

Perhaps we should open a vote..

pgm992, can you open any of the files on the VIP book page?
http://metalichicka.wordpress.com/paul- ... project-1/

&

I'm most definitely female.
I also have a boyfriend.

Although I am angry at him for not telling me about his 'new' van which maxed his card... which prevented me from getting to VIP, which we'd discussed before he bought the van! This anger will pass though.

I don't have any pictures of myself which are current.
Maybe I'll get some pictures in a few days. Maybe not. We'll see.

Bad thread hijack attempt. I'll come back sometime and put some pictures here that I wanted to include in the book, but didn't, usually for space reasons.

hhslf: I just updated the VIP book too, with lots more tab and stuff!, so I hope your internet connection becomes un-sucky asap. Lest you be tempted and irritated by your computer too much on the Christmas holiday.

Serously, thank you, guys - all this positive encouragement and good feedback means a lot to me. I'm glad you enjoy these works and words.

:)

As before, if anyone has download or viewing problems with these files - please e-mail me or PM me and we'll get things worked out asap!!

Now, after typesetting & laying-out 2 full books in 1 week... I'm going to take a typing BREAK. I slept for 19 hours the day after the Quotes book was uploaded, and 12 hours yesterday - hopefully today I'll get another 12 hours of REST. (I'll still check e-mail and such but I won't be doing 10 posts an hour!) Then it will be time for Christmas festivities. :)

You can notice if she´s a woman when she talks about her BF or when some of the macho man board members treat her as they do. :lol:

Apart from that, it´s a total mistery for me :lol:

I just get a page not found screen when I click on your most recent link...
And when I click on the link to download the PDF, it downloads but Adobe 9 won't open it. It says it's not a supported file type or is damaged.

But it's a .pdf, so I don't see what's wrong..

EDIT: Got the pdf to work. Instead of clicking the link, I copied the link into my browser and got it from there... Firefox was being funny for some reason.

Downloading now!

Post Re: [book] Paul Gilbert, snapshots in time...
Unfortunately, when RapidShare "converted" everyone's accounts back in January '10, they seem to have lost mine. Not to fear - I have the most important files on my blog for direct downloading. The VIP book is still on my blog, and the updated for 2010 book of quotes too.

I held off on working on it because I thought he'd do more then 5 interviews in 2010. Guess not - it's cool - the 5 that did get done were all so thorough that they really added some substance to the book and his lifetime's worth of learning. Check out new chapters, including a 'musical bio', and the Fanectdotes! :)
It needs minor reformatting to reduce "white space" on some of the pages - other then that... more consistent & typo-free then the first version, a better reading flow, and more fun to read.

You can get the book of quotes from the Artist Bio page on my blog:
http://metalichicka.wordpress.com/2007/ ... alog-page/

I've also updated Craig's page, and I added one for Tony Spinner.

I 've been trying to find a copy of this Gilbert VIP ebook that used to be posted here as well as on guitarnoize.com. I can no longer find a copy anywhere. Does anyone still have copy they could re-post here?

Thanks in advance for your time.
