help!!!

I am new to the guitar world. Can someone tell me the difference between a standard strat and a fat strat?

Re: help!!!

sure,
Standard strat features single coil pickups only, good for a sharp, twangy sound.

A fat strat features either a humbucker pickup at the bridge, or fender texas pickups for a more hard rock/blues orientated sound.guitar, for any more info

Answer my question!!!!!!

hey i was wondering does there have to be certian chords or something to sound the same as like the guitar in beatiful people by marilyn manson or do you have to have a certian guitar

Re: Answer my question!!!!!!

that tone is down to the guitar and amp and effects, the actualy notes and that interval is playable on anything.

Re: Answer my question!!!!!!

thanks for answering my question finally someone dies thanks man!!

Re: Answer my question!!!!!!

If you need help figuring out Maralyn Manson songs, then you need to take some time to learn to the basics of guitar. Learn your chords and the notes of each string. You should be able to figure out Manson in no time, musically it is very simple stuff.

Contreras - Carlevaro model circa 1985

Greetings Folks - I am researching for a friend who
owns one of these rare guitars, I understand that only
a few were made in the 80's.
It is an unusual design as there no sound hole - the
sound exits from a continuous gap around the top panel,
with great resonance.
If anyone owns one or has any idea of the value of
this guitar I would be most pleased to hear from them.
Cheers - Jack

Re: Contreras - Carlevaro model circa 1985

Dear jack and others,
I have a very fine Carlevaro model of the Contreras. You might like to know that I was respoonsible for getting Maestro Carlevaro to propose the idea to Manuel Contreras.
I studied at length withthe Maestro and later became his teaching assiatant. I am one of the main exponents of the Carlevaro school. I live in Geneva.

spruce or maple top for jazz box?

I love Grant Green's and Van Epps' tone--clear and bright. I dislike the standard Joe Pass or George Benson muffled jazz tone. Did the first two players use spruce top jazz boxes, while the latter two used maple or laminate top jazz boxes? Or mayby the difference is in the amps they used or their tone settings?

Re: spruce or maple top for jazz box?

i think mostly it is the diferent styles ie: fingers or plectrum plus the amp also vaneps used a 7 string guitar a fair bit

cat-piss guitar

hey anyone...i recently bought a guitar off ebay...its a great alvarez a/e....but one problem...it reaks of cat-piss! ANy ideas on how to get the smell out without harming the guit-fiddle????
thanks

Re: cat-piss guitar

Hmm.Beleive it or not,Tomato sauce works terrific!My cat before he was fixed would spray all over the house.
I noticed that he had certain spots that he preferred.
Armed with tomato sauce and water,I cleaned these areas.When he went back to it,he didn't recognize his spot(by smell).Think about it,if it works for skunk-spunk,why not cat-sprat! This is a definate truism!!
P.S.(1)Always get your cat fixed.He'll be much happier,
and live longer.(2)Unless it's furinature,tomato sauce rules!! NO BULLSHIT!!
Good Luck

i am a pet owner and know that there are a handfull of options available at your local pet store. one is called "nill-oder. what the hell are you going to put tomato sauce on? you cuold also try putting a cup of baking soda in an open container with te guitar in its box for about a week, that just may take care of it.

Re: cat-piss guitar

UNLESS IT"S FURNIATURE,IT WILL WORK ALMOST ANYTHING.
Besides,why should I fork over more $$$ to a pet store
when tomato sauce is 59 cents a can.I used it on my floors,walls and bathroom.Just dilute it with water.

Re: cat-piss guitar

Thats why I don't but guitars without smelling them first. Sorry! No suggestions

Re: catpiss guitar

to make a cat piss bomb take a guitar and fill it with bags of cat piss and dump some hmtd in. then make a fuse and light it and give it to some one

still learning

I started playing a guitar at a young age, but have given up several times because I can not play the way i would like to play. I have started playing again and am more determined to play this time because there is such great help on the net such as you guys. I love to hear a lead rythm guitar, but here in a small town "ely nevada" I can't find the help i need. Do you have any suggestions ie tapes, books, scales etc! etc!
i would appreciate any help you can offer thank you. BUD KELLY

Re: still learning

Hmm.If I were you I'd start with a 1,4,5 blues progression.EXAMPLE: A7/D7/A7/E7/D7/A7/E7(5th fret).
Scales? Start with A minor pentatonics.Books? There are
many good ones,for you Scales and Modes for Guitarists
by Ron Middlebrook.Videos? Not so sure,Arlen Roth is kinda cool.He seems to communicate well on any
wave-length.Forget about reading for now,DEVELOPE YOUR
EAR!! Learn your basic techniques,picking and strumming.There should be a guitar guy somewhere near you.Hang around these cats.You'll learn a lot by being
exposed to them,and by observation.
Hope this helps

looking for simple nursery school suitable songs to download

I am a teacher at a primary school in England and as
such I am fairly poorly paid and too mean to fork out any cash on Guitar books as my guitar playing is pretty rough. However I think it would be fun to play some very simple riffs to accompany our singing in class-I can already play one man went to mow for instance-well the only instance of a tune I can play. Was wondering if you know of any online free sites where I might be able to find some simple nursery school suitable songs to download. I'm also very new to the internet so forgive me if this request
is foolish. Thanks Linda

Floyd ROse

How do you change strings on a floyd rose tremolo style guitar

Re: Floyd ROse

I posted this down below. Another guy broke a string. The same rule apply but now you replace all 6 strings. Good luck:

First take the broken string off. You will need to unlock the the string at the nut. Loosen the screw that clamps the string down at
the nut. Then go to the bridge. You will need to unlock the sting here too. The hex screw to turn will be pointing towards the
'bottom' of the guitar. Loosen the approriate nut and remove the string.

When you put your new string on you will need to clip off the ball end. Insert it into the bridge where the old one came out and
clamp it back in using the same nut you loosened to remove it (tighten screw). Place string thru nut clamp into tuning peg, tune to
pitch. You will also have to retune all your other strings again so unlock all strings at the nut. DO NOT GET FRUSTRATED. Each
time you tune the string the others will go out of tune. It is the nature of the beast with a floyd. You can buy a trem-setter which
goes into the guiar cavity and will prevent your strings grom going out of tun if you break one. It still allows you to operate the
bridge normally. When you have finished tuning lock the strings at the nut and check the tuning again using the fine tuners at the bridge
(this tends to cause strings to go sharp). Then you should be good to go.

53Paul

I have a 53 Gold Top Les Paul(3 1047) and would like to know if anyone could give me a real idea of what this guitar is worth. It was played and signed by Les Paul at the Iridium Club in New York on October 2, 2000. I have pics to document it.
