Self Tuning Guitar

Hello everyone,
I view a few threads of curiosity concerning the TransPerformance self tuning guitar. Not many people know about the tuning, but have a desire to write creatively by using alternat tunings. It is now possible with this computerized mechanical tuning system. Check it out at www.selftuning.com

: Hello everyone,
: I view a few threads of curiosity concerning the TransPerformance self tuning guitar. Not many people know about the tuning, but have a desire to write creatively by using alternat tunings. It is now possible with this computerized mechanical tuning system. Check it out at www.selftuning.com

The Self Tunning Guitar is something. I visited the web site a long time ago and could see the advantages of owning a Self Tunning Guitar. The really great guitar players are buying the self tunners because they can change tunnings withing a song at the click of a button.

The Self Tunning Guitar expands the ability of the greatest guitar players. It would also be nice to own even if you did not change tunning within a song. Just get the guitar out push a button and it's in tune. It takes the hassle out of keeping your guitar in tune.

Did you ever tune you guitar special for a certain key, to play a certain song? You have to have certain chords be absolutely perfect for certain songs. And in reality we do not have a perfect music scale. So we have to use a compromise tunning that is acceptable in all chord formations, and on every position on the neck, but it is a commpromise, and not an absolutely perfect tunning, no matter how good your guitar intonnation is. If you have perfect relative pitch, you need to hear a perfect chord in some songs. A self tunning guitar could be preset so that certain chord formation produce absolutely perfect chords in certain postiions of the neck. This is a great advantage to those who have perfect relative pitch.

I think that someday all high end guitars will come with self tunning computer mechnisms. But right now that is not the case. You can buy a A Telecaster Or Les Paul from the company that makes the self tunning mechanism, or you can have it installed on your guitar. But it's not cheap, darn it.

I sure wish I could have the self tunning mechansm added to my Fender Telecaster. How nice that would be. To those who have big bucks, the Self tunner is more than a toy, especially if you have advanced in your guitar playing enough to appreciate the advantages this innovative guitar tunning computer mechanism brings to you.

Check out the web site where this self tunner is on display.

Are you advanced enough to need a Self tunning guitar to play the most creative of all Guitar Music, using different tunnings within a song?

Are there any classical guitar finger pickers here? -

Ive been thinking about switching to finger picking. Is that real hard to play fast with? I can use a pick fast, I can move my fingers fast on the guitar or piano, I can play fast on one string at a time with a bow on a violin but I cant finger pick fast at all - not even on one string at a time. Is finger picking the hardest thing to get fast with? Can someone recomend a good instructional video for a beginer for classical guitar - I cant afford lessons.

yes-

i play classical. it's very easy for me to play fast, but i've been doing it for almost 30 years.

i think you might want to consider the SOUND, rather than speed for a while. it's a big adjustment getting rid of the pick and your primary concern should probably be tone, at least until you develop your technique a little.

Thanks

Those are great lessons - I might get the 3 Aaron Shearer begginer books. Im into speed alot but I want to switch to finger picking because I like the way it feels more. I got tired of rubbing my right palm on the strings or pushing against fingers anchored on the guitar - you have to do that to pick fast cuz its hard to balance picking fast with your whole right hand off of the guitar.

Re: Thanks

Finger picking is useful when using a pick sounds too sharp. It all comes naturally - I developed my finger picking style after playing Stairway to Heaven over and over. Just keep practicing and it should develop enough so that you won't even have to think about which fingers are doing what.

Re: Are there any classical guitar finger pickers here? -

While I agree with robb's comments on sound, you have to start somewhere. I have several lessons posted at the Wholenote guitar site that should help. Go to http://www.wholenote.com , click on lessons and scroll down to Flamenco. My lessons apply to most fingerstyle playing, not just Flamenco. Real life examples of these appear at http://www.mp3.com/jimgraham , Jim

Re: Are there any classical guitar finger pickers here? -

If your sole desire is to play fast, stay with the pick. I have been playing with fingers for about 15 years. This is after playing with a pick for 15 years, and I have never been able to play as fast. But this is a small sacrafice for what playing with you finger can offer.

Re: Are there any classical guitar finger pickers here? -

Robert Eldridge on mp3 has a very eclectic fingerstyle you should listen to....

http://www.mp3.com/roberteldridge

i think will like his style

Re: Are there any classical guitar finger pickers here? -

I perform. compose for, and teach the classical guitar. If you are interested in obtaining a book to start with, try the Frederick Noad methods. You can find his stuff everywhere and talks to you as an adult and not a child like most books I've used to teach with. As far as speed is concerned, you do have to sacrifice that desire. There are some exceptional guitarists that can play fast on the classical, but they are rare. The classical gitar is more about expression and musicality and not so much on the pyrotechinics. It is, however, worth it as you are the music and have to rely on no one.

Re: Are there any classical guitar finger pickers here? -

Check out my website to see and hear some of my compostions for the classical guitar.

Re: Are there any classical guitar finger pickers here? -

The picking hand is critical for any style. It's the voice and the source of the rhythm, the groove, the expression. It's great that you hear and appreciate that. That's why we think that our practice instrument, called the Twanger PraxAx is so useful. You can find out more at www.twanger.com. It's about the size of your hand, has normal guage strings mounted above a piece of maple, and the string tension can be adjusted to suit your needs. Comes with a nylon web belt so you can groove on the move and give your right hand a workout wherever, whenever.

If you're serious, pick up a copy of Scott Tenant's Pumping Nylon, it's a book and a video and the best guitar technique thing out there.

Re: Are there any classical guitar finger pickers here? -

I think it is difficult to play fast but there are a lot of finger pickers from many different
areas, country to jazz to flamenco, that can play fast with their fingers.

A good tape to watch is "World of Fingerstyle Jazz" from vestapol video. It doesn't show you
how to get fast but it is certainly inspiring!

Also "Meeting of the Spirits" from vestapol video, is awesome if you like flamenco stuff.
Paco DeLucia is the one of the fastest flamenco pickers I've seen. Also on the tape
are John McLauglin and Larry Corryel. No lessons here just inspiring tape.

:paco pena has some good ones

NONE

OF COURSE

Re: Are there any classical guitar finger pickers here? -

A bit late but here's my view. I was taught classical guitar through the traditional method of AMEB and my picking style is as fast as any one could ever want. My flat pick style is not so great but isn't needed. So stop looking for easy ways out, it takes years of practice and dedication to be great at something.
