Request for HELP in INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE TRANSLATION of guitar anatomy

In the spirit of international understanding and cooperation among guitarists I am seeking to compile a translation list for all languages for parts of the guitar. There is very little in the official translation books or anywhere else for these terms. It may not be important to the rest of the world, but it is to us guitar players. If it is successful, I will go on to acoustic guitars and beyond.

Music itself may know no international boundries, but its spoken and written language do. I will be happy to share my findings as it is for us all.

You can look at my request at:

Hi there, I just read your mail requesting help for your translation effort. It's a neat idea, so let me contribute with my modest input for your Spanish/English part. By the way, I live in Mexico, so mine could be viewed as a 'mexican spanish version' for guitar terminology.
As you don't specify which words do you want to be translated, (it would be helpful if you could e-mail a proper list of terms and words, no matter how long) I think I'll start with some common used terms.

1)Guitarra-Guitar (I guess you already knew)
2)Pastilla-Pickup
3)Knobs, volume and tone-Controles de volumen y tono
4)Whammy bar/tremolo bar-Palanca de vibrato/Palanca del tremolo
5)Guitar body-Cuerpo (de la guitarra)
6)Headstock-Pala o cabeza (de la guitarra)
7)Guitar neck-Mastil (de la guitarra)
8)Fingerboard-Diapason (de la guitarra)
9)Pickguard-Mica
10)Tuning pegs-Clavijas de afinacion
11)Nut-Hueso o guia de las cuerdas
12)String(s)-Cuerda(s)
13)Guitar jack-Conexion de entrada ('entrada' is often used)
14)Guitar bridge-Puente
15)Guitar saddles (where strings travel rest towards headstock)-asiento/reposo/silla de la cuerda
16)Nut string lock/clamp (on Floyd rose tremolo equipped guitars)-Candado
17)Bridge string lock-Candado (you specify which you are refferring to, the one at the nut(hueso) or the one at the bridge (puente)
18)Fretboard dot inlay-Puntos de guia del diapason, sometimes called 'puntos de guia' or just 'marcas del diapason'
19)Higher/Lower guitar horn (on strat-style electric guitars)-Cuerno superior/inferior, they are also called 'Cuerno alto/Cuerno bajo'
20)Guitar brand (Fender, Gibson, PRS, etc.)-Marca de la guitarra, e.g. 'What's your guitar's brand?'-¿De que marca es tu guitarra?

All right, there you have it. Hope it helps, good luck!

Renzo.

First electric for 10-year-old son

My son's guitar teacher has said that my son is now "ready" to "move onto" an electric. This is after two years of learning the basics on a cheapo acoustic. My son wants a new guitar, though I favor a used model simply because you can get great deals on some dream models. Anyway, so we're going to buy a new guitar. I know nothing about the market today. I play a hollow-body electric Guild which I bought used in New York back in '85. I learned to play on a friend's Strat. That's my particular experience: quite the amateur, frankly unfamiliar with the important criteria regarding this decision. I'm willing to pay around $500-$600 but might splurge for something really godlike. What do you think? Suggestions deeply appreciated.

And what effects boxes should I buy him?

benwoyth@aol.com

You're a great Dad ...

I wish I had a dad like you when I was learning to play! Anyway, for that sum you can do really well. The way I buy all my guitars really cheap is to go to guitar expos and buy them from guys who carry them in. The dealers at those shows will be offering them wholesale money for them. I've been able to buy used Telecasters, Strats and Les Paul's for $400 at these things. Apart from getting the best deal you can on an American-manufactured guitar, it's just a matter of what sounds your son will want to hear come out of the thing. That would influence the model choice and in particular the effects. You're obviously aware that the main difference will be between single and dual coil pickups and darker wood like Mahogony and lighter, brighter sounding wood like alder or maple. If your son has a musical genre and favorite artists, you should be in good shape to find him an axe he will swing with gusto.

Sincerely,

Well for $500 or so, you could get a used Gibson Les Paul Studio easy. I don't know what would be good for a 10 year old though. I started at that age myself, and my hands were tiny at the time. You should get something with a thin neck, maybe an Ibanez, or maybe a Mexican Strat. Two websites you should check out: Route101 guitars, customized strat copies, with seymour duncan pickups, very nice alternative, to a Mexican Strat. Also Musicyo.com, they sell Kramers, which I heard are good quality. My personal reccomendation is that you get him a Danelectro, rather simple, easy to play, cheap, nothing for him to damage beyond reapair, and they sound great. If you get him a cheaper guitar, you could get him a real good amp, which is importent. Like you could get him a Dano Double Cutaway, and a Fender Blues Jr. Tube amp, altogether for $480, not bad for a tube amp, and a decent guitar. In about a year and half, if he wants to go on with guitar, you could get him a better guitar, but he still could use the amp. I'd say for a begginer, the best pedal to get is a distortion. The best for rock, blues, and anything else he would want to play. Maybe a Electro Harmonix Big Muff for $50, and your set. Hope it all helps

It's really cool of you to help your son get into the world of guitar! My Mom actually showed me the way but I had to buy all of my own gear.

In my opinion, the Fender Strat and the Gibson Les Paul are the esstential guitars, but can be rather expensive (especially the Gibson). Fortunately both are available in cheaper type of models - the mexican Fender Strat and the Epiphone Les Paul. Either one should last him until he's ready to move on too the real thing.

I'd also recommend one of the Fender Champion 30 amp. You could get into the Epiphone guitar and Fender amp for around $700 or you could get into the mexican Fender Strat and Fender amp for around $500.

Re: First electric for 10-year-old son

That's way cool!!
I probably would'nt buy something too expensive for this young trooper.Later he might decide he'd rather play the tuba(joke),you'll be stuck with an $800 peice of furniature,gathering dust.Also.you'll lose 50% of the guitar's original value if you sell it.I would, instead, get him something good,at a low price and let him earn (pratice) his way towards a Les Paul or Jackson(me...Stratocastor). Effects?? Boss overdrive or distortion ,Cry-baby wah-wah.These are standard boxes.Amp??Peavey 15-20 watts,reverb...he'll really like that!!
Please leave comment.
Good luck to you & son

The Secret Of Speed: Finding The Incredible Lightness

The Secret of Speed:
Finding the Incredible Lightness

by Jamey Andreas

In my essay "Discover Your Discomfort", I urged you to become aware of
the
sensations of discomfort you experience while practicing and playing.
The
reason is very simple. Until you do, you will not be able to be aware
of the
sensations (that is, your mental awareness of the physical feelings in
your
body) a good player has, the sensations that you must have to play
well. I
call this sensation, or feeling in the body, "The Incredible
Lightness". I
call it this, because once you experience it, and allow it to grow by
Correct
Practicing, well, it’s Incredible. This feeling of lightness is what
makes
fast, accurate playing possible. Unfortunately, because of ignorance of
how
to practice correctly, far too many players create for themselves "The
Incredible Tightness".

I will quote myself to bring this point home:

"The relative state of tension or relaxation in the muscles is one of
the
hardest things to be aware of. I once saw a person play with so much
tension
in her right shoulder that it was up to her earlobe! Always trying to
be
helpful, I pointed this out to her when she finished. As she let her
shoulder
down a few inches to it’s normal position, she told me I was wrong,
she
wasn’t tense, but very relaxed!

 The reason she felt this way is because we very quickly become used
to
whatever we experience, and consider it normal. We never question
whatever
tensions we experience in learning new skills on the guitar, and in
fact
consider it part of the doing of it. And it often is, but it doesn’t
have to
continue to be that strenuous. We can learn to do the movements with
less
effort.

However, when we first try something, it is often not possible to do it
without a lot of excess tension. The mistake is, we assume that the
tension
is inevitable, and never realize we can get to a point where we can get
the
result we want without all the huffing, puffing and straining. Often,
more
stretch or muscle development is required, which will come with a
correct
approach.

Of course, as we continue to try the new skill, and assume the effort
we feel
must be that way, it becomes ingrained into our approach, and gets
worse. So
we have a vicious circle, that leads to frustration and bad playing.

So extra tension in the muscles, which every advanced player knows is
the
number one cause of playing difficulty, becomes a blind spot for us.
Usually
we are only aware of the result of the tension, which is that mistake
we just
made. Often it happens we are not even aware of that, because we start
to
filter out those unpleasant reminders of our troubles.
 As you will see shortly, the correct approach to dealing with
"mistakes"
caused by tension, is to repeat the movement extremely slowly, with a
great
focus on keeping all muscles relaxed. With each repetition, the muscles
learn
the relaxed way of moving to produce the result you want. "

So you see, it is lack of understanding of how the body/mind functions,
and
lack of honest attention while practicing, that gets us in to trouble.

You must start to observe your own "Tightness", and replace it with
"Lightness", then you will see your level as a player change upward,
what I
call Vertical Growth. Since many players have no idea what this
lightness
feels like, here is a very simple way to connect with it. You must then
begin
to cultivate this feeling in actual playing. Believe me, it feels good!
In
fact, when you see a good player "making it look easy", it’s because
it is
easy, when you have the "Incredible Lightness".

Let’s discover "The Light Finger"

The first step in finding "The Incredible Lightness" is to discover The
Light
Finger. The Light Finger is the completely relaxed finger, brought to
the
string, and touching the string, with only the weight of the finger. It
does
not press the string down until told to do so. To discover the
sensation of
the Light Finger, do this:

Raise your arms in front of you, without the guitar, and take hold of
the
index finger of your left hand with the thumb and index finger of your
right
hand. Completely relax the left index, and wiggle it around with your
right
hand. This is the Light Finger.

Touch the palm of your right hand with your left index. Raise the left
index
two inches from the palm. Now let it drop by it’s own weight back to
your
palm, touching it very lightly, with no pressure. This is how the
finger
feels when it first touches the string.

Now hold the guitar, paying attention to the being comfortable and
relaxed
throughout the body, and slowly raise your relaxed left arm up to the
neck,
bringing the hand up so that the index finger is lined up with the
ninth
fret. Have your fingers in a relaxed curl over the 6th string. Allow
your
Light, relaxed middle finger to fall to the 6th string, behind the 10th
fret,
so that it touches the string, but applies no pressure. Look at the
string
under your finger, and see the distance between the string and the
fingerboard. Make sure the string does not get move at all down toward
the
fret.

Raise your finger an inch, and then bring it back to touch the string
again
in the same way. Do this over and over, touching the string with the
Light
Finger, bringing it away, and touching it again. This is called Finger
Flapping. Do this a few times with each finger every day. Make sure you
keep
the inactive fingers as relaxed as possible while touching the string
with
the active finger. This will get you used to the feeling, and over
time, very
sensitive to the feeling of complete relaxation.

This light feeling is how your fingers will be when they first touch
the
string to play a note, and it is the feeling they will return to when
they
release from a note. It enables them to be prepared for their next job.
Many
people never have this light feeling, and play with tense fingers all
the
time, and their playing suffers greatly because of it.
This exercise is what I call a Foundation Exercise, one that should be
done
regularly, no matter how long you have been playing. It will
continually act
to increase your awareness of the correct and necessary sensations you
must
have in order to play well. Learning how to bring this feeling in to
all
playing situations is often a tricky matter, and there is much else to
know,
but we have to start somewhere!

here is why. Speed, or the ability to execute movements rapidly and
accurately, is simply the result of continuous correct practice that
promotes
"The Incredible Lightness". If you are creating "The Incredible
Tightness"
when you practice, you will suffer because of it. Think of walking and
running. Does a little kid have to practice running? No, it just
happens
after balance is mastered, and the ability to place one foot in front
of the
other, and have all the body parts work together to keep the movement
going.
After the two year old gets that down, don’t worry, he’ll be
running!

In closing, let me say that all the preceding is founded upon the first
two
Principles of Correct Practice. I will state them pretty formally, and
they
apply to all instruments.

Principle of Correct Practice #1: Your aware, thinking mind is your
primary
practice tool.

Principle of Correct Practice #2: Control of the fingers is developed
by
infusing conscious awareness into the muscles through the mechanism of
attention while practicing.

Remember, as in all things in life, you get out of it what you put in
to it
(and believe me, it makes me feel pretty old to hear myself saying
that, but
it’s the truth.) So read this over and over, and do the exercise, and
apply
these understandings to your practice. Good Luck!

Fernandes Dragonfly X - Is it a good value for 279.99 at musiciansfriend.com???

I've been looking at this guitar and it looks to be a pretty good setup for the price... I don't care about the sustainer system, I don't want to have to deal with batteries, which is why I am interested in the X model. Any input?? Thanks!

Re: Fernandes Dragonfly X - Is it a good value for 279.99 at musiciansfriend.com???

My co-worker just purchased a dragonfly X. He is really happy with how it plays and sounds. He says the finish is quite nice for the price. As for purchasing through musiciansfriend is a nother matter. He tried to buy through them and ended up having a major headache. He was buying a closeout. The sent the wrong guitar, sold the guitar he bought, and then it got muddle up in shipping. He ended up finding a local dealer (Seattle area) and had them order one. My suggestion is to search the web for a good buy. There seems to be a number of online sellers. I believe www.gear1music.com is having an extra %10 sale right now. $249.99 w/ %10 off that is a better deal if you ask me.......

how do I make my guitar sound cleaner?

whenever I play chords with distortion everything kind of runs together. Like if I play a "C" and then a "G" the sound from the "C" still lingers and it all sound like a bunch of noise. Is there something that is made to help seperate the sound or is there something I can adjust on my amp to make it sound better. I have Strat, a Les Paul, and a Peavey 300 along with an Ibanez distortion box. I also have a couple of practice amp with distortion built in and it all sound the same way (runs together)I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm kind of a newbie. ANY help is appreciated. Thanks.

Re: how do I make my guitar sound cleaner?

When playing with distortion you must use power chords because of all harmonic noise produced by the effect. That is: mark only Root ant Fifth notes, mute the other strings. That should give you your stylish chords you want. Good trippin!

WELL, IF YOUR PLAYING STANDARD CORDS LIKE FOR INSTANCE IN TAB FIGURE "C"

"C"
-----------------------------
--1----------------------
--0---------------------
--2------------------------
--3------------------------
-------------------------

THEN TAT WOULD BE YOUR PROBLEM THATS WHEN POWER CORDS COME IT FOR DISTORTION

Re: how do I make my guitar sound cleaner?

Hmm,let me think.Could be a couple of things.
1.Some distortion boxes are too raspy,harmonics can ring all over the place.Might try an overdrive box when playing big chords.
2.CHECK GUITAR INTONATION.Bad intonation can slop-up your sound.Use electronic tuner(I like Korgs).Open A should sound like 12th fret A.If not,adjust length of bridge saddle peices(phillips screw-driver).
3. When moving chord to chord,dampen strings slightly.
Lots of harmonics between 1st & 5th frets.
Good Luck

Re: how do I make my guitar sound cleaner?

The amp you are playing makes a major difference. I love Fender Amps for a clean sound.The tubes make a difference in the way it sounds. Tubes are warmer sounding an cut through a mix.

Your pickups also make a difference.The pickups you use will be something that you will need to experiment with to find out what you like best. The best way to experiment is just to go to your local music dealer and check out the new guitars. It's a great way to spend some time as long as the salesmen don't hassle you.

Recording CDs then using software to tab fill ins and introductions

I'm really keen on some introductions by Stevie Ray, Eric Clapton and music from The Last Waltz (The Band). I have the CDs but and can copy the music onto the hard drive as .wav files.

Multi Effects Pedal Quality

Hi,

Instead of spending a fortune on each pedal, I was looking at those multi effects pedals you can get, with like 33 or more effects.

Anyone tried them or know of someone who has? Let me know your opinion.

Re: Multi Effects Pedal Quality

: Hi,

: Instead of spending a fortune on each pedal, I was looking at those multi effects pedals you can get, with like 33 or more effects.

: Anyone tried them or know of someone who has? Let me know your opinion

The thing is, you get what you pay for. If you spend somewhere like $350, or so on a Boss Gt3 you will get about that much quality. If you want the best quality, you get a bunch of stomp-boxes. I used own a Digitech Rp-6 effects processor, and it was horrible, bad pedals, weak preamp, bad effects, horrible distortions, everything just bad. I am shifting towards stomp-boxes again. I have a sansamp, a Mr. Crybaby, and a boss Flanger right now, and I plan on getting a Voodoo Lab chorus, a Boss Graphic Eq, and Reverb/delay. Anyway, some people deal with them, but I just can't stand them. You have to ask yourself a question, will you use 40 lack luster effects, or will you use a few good stomp-boxes? .

Re: Multi Effects Pedal Quality

i got a boss me-30 and its pretty good. u might wanna get seperate distortion pedals if u dont like the multi's, but multi's are good for 1 big reason. $. u can get chorus, flanger, pitch shifter, reverb etc etc etc for the cost of bout 2-3 stomps. the quality is not as good as a stomp, but at least u got the effects ya know? its good to at least be able to access those effects rather than have 1 or 2 really good ones. me-30's r good. all stomps is just too $$$ for most people. its really that simple.

THE BEST MULITEFFECTS YOU CAN GET WOULD BE THE DIGITECH RP2000 MY FRIEND COLE HAS ONE AND I'D LOVE TO GET MY HANDS ON IT, BUT THE ONLY DISADVANTGE IS THAT IT COST ABOUT $650 THROUGH MUSICIANS FRIEND AND THATS GOOD

THE BIG QUESTION IS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A FLOORBOARD FX PROCESSOR OR A PRE-AMP FLOOR BOARD FX PROCESSOR(WITH DISTORTION AND SUCH) AND ARE YOU GOIN TO RUN IT THROUGH THE FX LOOP OR THROUGH THE FRONT OF THE AMP? MANY OF THE STOMP BOXES PEOPLE USE ARE DESIGNED TO BE USED IN THE FRONT OF THE AMP AS WELL ARE MANY OF THE PRE AMP FX DEALS AS APOSSED TO USING THE FX LOOP (IF YOU HAVE ONE). SO WHAT KIND OF AMP ARE YOU USING AND DO YOU INTEND ON USING THE DISTORTION FROM THE AMP?
THIS IS WHAT SUCKS ABOUT THE INDUSTRY THEY DO EVERY THING BACKWARDS. WHAT REALLY SUCKS IF WHEN YOU ARE USING BOTH AND YOU GET SICK OF HAVING SO MANY SPEGETTI CHORDS AROUND YOUR ANKLES. I WOULD FIND A STORE WITH A SALES PERSON WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT AND START ASKING QUESTIONS. ALSO CHECK OUT A WEB SITE CALLED( GUITAR AMP TONE AND EFFECTS PLACEMENT )THIS MAY HELP.Research is the key dont spend your hard earned dough until you nkow its going to work. Bring your own eqiupment down to the store and try it out. Any store thats worth your time/money and the priveledge of having you shop there as a repeat customer will indulge you. Oh yeah check out harmony central they have reviews on music gear posted by the people who bought it. good luck

Re: Multi Effects Pedal Quality

: : Hi,

: : Instead of spending a fortune on each pedal, I was looking at those multi effects pedals you can get, with like 33 or more effects.

: : Anyone tried them or know of someone who has? Let me know your opinion.

: THE BIG QUESTION IS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A FLOORBOARD FX PROCESSOR OR A PRE-AMP FLOOR BOARD FX PROCESSOR(WITH DISTORTION AND SUCH) AND ARE YOU GOIN TO RUN IT THROUGH THE FX LOOP OR THROUGH THE FRONT OF THE AMP? MANY OF THE STOMP BOXES PEOPLE USE ARE DESIGNED TO BE USED IN THE FRONT OF THE AMP AS WELL ARE MANY OF THE PRE AMP FX DEALS AS APOSSED TO USING THE FX LOOP (IF YOU HAVE ONE). SO WHAT KIND OF AMP ARE YOU USING AND DO YOU INTEND ON USING THE DISTORTION FROM THE AMP?
: THIS IS WHAT SUCKS ABOUT THE INDUSTRY THEY DO EVERY THING BACKWARDS. WHAT REALLY SUCKS IF WHEN YOU ARE USING BOTH AND YOU GET SICK OF HAVING SO MANY SPEGETTI CHORDS AROUND YOUR ANKLES.
