I've seen it. Another Mossman picture is at http://www.shsu.edu/~rtf_wdn/guitar.htm

Mossmann Texas Sesquicentennial Guitar-No. 15 of 15

I have acquired this guitar from my brother. It was not talked about in your history of Mossman guitars. Could you give me some information on this guitar? It is in excellent condition with what I believe is the original case. I would like to know the original price and what I might be able to get for it now. It has the stars on the fretboard and the Alamo at the top of the neck and says TEXAS 1836 star1986, it has an electric pick-up in it.??? Was this standard for this guitar? I would appreciate any information you could give me. I enjoyed reading the history of Mossman, please keep the web site updated thank you. Sincerely

books with scales in all positions?

Does anybody know of any good books with different scales transcribed into all the positions? I can find nothing.

Getting deaparate.

Re: books with scales in all positions?

Guitar Grimiore- Scales and Modes

Re: books with scales in all positions?

Go to www.halleonard.com They have Book/CD combinations that cover lots of theory. One is called Modes for the Lead Guitarist and it is excellent. Cherry Lane also publishes good materials, as well as Alfred Publishing. I can't believe you can't find materials. I buy most of this at Mars Music stores (www.marsmusic.com I think) they would fill an order too, I think. Good Luck

Re: WAIT!

Look at the sample and phrase feature in the AX1000G
manual. No danger in pressing the switch.....

WAIT!

I hate the clean

Can somebody help me?, I recently bought an AX1000g, and i´m fine with the distortion and other stuffs, but the clean sucks, i can´t make a nice clean, I´ve tried with he acoustic effect, but the EQ doesn´t help me, a little bit of chorus too, but in my Amp ( Peavey Express 112), the clean saturates, and sound really bad, in fact I get my amp to the top of his capability, I know is not an JCM800, but with my other effect ( Zoom Fire 7010), it sounds great with the cleans, what can I do, could you help me, guitar partner, please?

Re: KORG AX1000G 's tiny black button

That's the button switch. ie on/off

this button is on/off switch of that pedal, and the defult is on, you can turn the pedal effect off or on by using yor foot to press the pedal with proper pressure to make that button work while playing

Re: KORG AX1000G 's tiny black button

I have this machine and the on/off button on the pedal can be very useful. Another good way of turning the pedal off is to use the individual function (by holding the bank up button down until the function has changed). Remember that most Pedal effects don't work in conjuction with modulation effects.

i want to start playing electric guitar!

hi, i'm totally new to guitars, but i LOVE music.
can someone point to some things to look for when buying a electric guitars? and the amps and other things that i need?
also, could anyone tell me HOW to get started?? what to do?? some books that you may suggested etc..?

i'm totally new to music instruments @@
please help me ^^

Re: i want to start playing electric guitar!

First off don't buy anything except a fender strat. If you can't afford a U.S.A. model get a mexican one. Don't buy a squire anything!!! You can get a used mex for about $200-300. DON'T CHEAP OUT!!! Your first amp can be just about anything but again you eventually want to move to a tube amp. Preferably Fender. A fender champ is a good starting amp. Finally buy one of those zoom effect boxes and take some lessons. Did you hear me? I said take some lessons. One more time...repeat after me...take some lessons. You'll never regret it. And finally finally...practice till your room mates want you out and your breathing through your eyes...rock on young soldier!

First off K is talking absolute bullshit,"don't get anything but a Fender what shit!!!
Fenders are great I've got 4 Fender guitars,--a P bass a Strat and a Jaguar a Tele as well as 2 Fender amps, a Vibrolux and a Twin.
As well as that I've got 2 Marshalls a Peavy a Gibson amp as well as a couple of other brands.
Also 2 Gibsons a Hamer a Guild an Ibanez acoustic a Cort steel acoustic. a Ricky a Danelectro an Aria strat '1962 and I love and use everyone of them.
Of course you don't need that much gear but to say that a Fender is the only guitar worth having is shit!!!!
It depends on what you want to play and what style you are into.
Shop around play a lot of axes and when you find the right one you will know! But please don't be influenced by what's written on the headstock.
He is right about valves though, if you can afford a valve amp go that way and don't be influenced by the number of watts.
A big 100 watt stack might be impressive but you are restricted to playing very loud,. They don't sound very good unless they are turned right up.
Go for a low wattage say 15 then you'll get nice tone at sane levels but still have enough grunt to play small gigs if you need.
A good valve amp which leaves the 15 watt fenders for dead is the Gibson GA15 they are cheaper and more versatile.

Re: i want to start playing electric guitar!

I suggest that you should read a column named "how to buy an e-guitar" at "www.guitar.com".
I think that it's made by an real professional(s).

Flix's last post is right: don't be so obsessed by the name on the headstock; go into music stores (maybe even take along a friend who can play), and try out what's in your price range. The advantage to buying a guitar with a recognized brand name like Fender (and this includes Squier, which can be very good guitars!) is that if you decide to sell it, you'll get a better resale than on a no-name guitar.

Re: i want to start playing electric guitar!

If you are a visual learner, and want the best video tapes, go to www.metalmethod.com. They are very clear and well-organized, and cover everything you need to know to learn to play very well. You can also read comments on their message board.

Re: i want to start playing electric guitar!

1.What kind of music you'd like to play.
2.Get a decent axe.Not too expensive($250-$350),feels good in your hands!!!
3.Get a teacher,someone you feel comfortable with and who is knowlegable.People who have teachers progress faster than people who don't.
4.Practice ,practice,practice.Minimum 2hours day or ten hours weekly.
5.Learn to play rythym guitar as well as lead.Chords dictate almost everything in music.
