Subject: Make Thousands of Dollars Within Weeks With Only An Initial Investment
of $6.00! NEW GUARANTEED METHODS

Hello, My Friends..

I Found This Mail On A Bulletin Board And Decided To Try It.

You Can Make Thousands Of Dollars Within Weeks With Only An Initial Investment
Of $6.00!

So I Thought, "Yeah Right, This Must Be A Scam",
But Like Most Of Us, I Was Curious, So I Kept Reading. Anyway, It Said That You
Send $1.00 To Each Of The 6 Names And

Addresses Stated In The Article.
You Then Place Your Own Name And Address At The Bottom Of The List
At #6, And Post The Article To At Least 200 Newsgroups.
(There Are Thousands). No Catch, That Was It. So After Thinking
It Over And Talking To A Few People At First, I Thought About Trying
It.
I Figured "What Have I Got To Lose Except 6 Stamps And $6.00,
Right?".
Then, I Invested The Measly $6.00.

Well, GUESS WHAT!!!! Within 7 Days,
I Started Getting Money In The Mail!!!
I Was Shocked. I Figured It Would End Soon, But The Money
Just Kept Coming In. In My First Week, I Made About $25.00.
By The End Of The Second Week,I Had Made A Total Of Over $1000.00!!
In The Third Week, I Had Over $10,000 And Its Still Growing. This Is Now My
Forth Week And I Have Made A Total Of Just

Over $42,000 And Its Still Coming In Rapidly. Its Certainly Worth $6.00 And 6
Stamps, I've Spent More Than That On The

Lottery!!

Here Are The 4 Easy Steps To Success:

The Bill Will Not Be Seen Through The Envelope (To Prevent Thievery). Next,
Place One Paper Inside EACH Of The 6

Envelopes And Seal Them. MAKE SURE

Worried About The Legal Aspects Of It All.

So I Checked It Out With The US Post Office (1-800-725-2161)And
They Confirmed It Is Indeed Legal! Mail The Six Envelopes To The
Following Addresses:

#1) T. Gray, 72 Broadleaf Avenue, Bishops Stortford,

Does the size of a bass guitars body make any difference to the sound?

I'm thinking of buying a 3/4 scale bass but I don't want to sacrifice a good sound if any huge difference is made.

Re: Does the size of a bass guitars body make any difference to the sound?

Not only does the size matter but also and probalby more importantly, is the type of wood the guitar is made of.
A maple body would be more bright than mahogony which is more brighter than alder or basswood.

Epiphone Casino Replacement Parts??? help

I just bought a used Epiphone Casino. It needs a replacement part for the tremolo system. I believe it is a vibra tone tremolo system. One of the little hooks to hook the string on busted off.

Does anyone know of a place to order replacement parts is?

Re: Epiphone Casino Replacement Parts??? help

Try going to Yahoo and in the search engine box type in Bigsby tremelos. They will have the model George Harrison used on his Epiphone. That's the one you want anyway. Bigsby makes special tremelos with different names on them for special customers. I believe it is the model B-7 Bigsby tremelo you want. In either case it is the best tremelos made. Good Luck

SOUND CARD to record guitar,vocal digitally....on PC

i got cakewalk pro 7. i want to record my song, with shure sm57,but the quality sucks with my normal soundcard.

From surfing the net, i think i need a more expensive sound card for recording. pls suggest ...

i doubt the quality of the work, even if i buy a "good" soundcard, what more do i need? mixer?

Re: SOUND CARD to record guitar,vocal digitally....on PC

i record on pc and use a cheap soundblaster card. i always get great results. it appears that you could do with a small mixer(this gives better control on the inputs gain), also connect your mixer into the line in, rather than the mike in, on your sound card, as the mike in is often noisy. good little mixers are the spirit folio or notepad. good luck

ESP guitar: Ltd sucks??!

i am thinking of buying LTD, but i heard it just like the epiphone from GIbson n it sucks.
CAN i change the LTD guitar's hardware from original black to chrome?
pls suggest ,thanks...

: My friend has 2! It has some quirks,(trem related),he's impressed,for the $$. And he likes vintage stuff! 1st axe? Get one. Sounds like they're worth the dineros'.

Re: ESP guitar: Ltd sucks??!

The LTD's are very poor quality, probably even worse than Epiphone. If you like the ESP's, you should pay the money, they are top the line guitars. The LTD's are made from plywood or other cheap wood in China and Korea. If you do want an ESP, consider buying one used, for example on eBay, they are half the price of a new one. just make sure you are getting a real ESP- some people will try to sell LTD's as the real deal.

Re: ESP guitar: Ltd sucks??!

I'm thinking of buying an ESP diamond plated guitar, but I've heard stuff about the plating isn't that good or something, and I've heard a lot of people talking about having their's custom plated.

I just wanted to know if anyone actually has one and if they are actually cool, and if its real diamond plated metal and not like painted on or anything. Thanks.

: You have the right idea. Change the (if I remember correctly) 9 to a 10,the 26,(G's ) suck,to a 28-32. For POWER chords,you gotta have HEAVY METAL!

:OOPS,I meant the D,not the G. That would be too heavy.I'm surprised no one caught that! But,the "G" should be 16/17.

whats the ideal action on a les paul for tone

any info, mich appriciated.

Re: whats the ideal action on a les paul for tone

Les Pauls,unlike Strats,have flatter necks(12 radius).
So it's very playalbe with low action.I would try a set of 10's at medium low action.Your Paul will sing to the heavens!
Good Luck

finding jazz scales online for guitar

Hi,

I don't read music, and have basically played rock-blues for some years. I was inspired by the ken burns jazz film on pbs and would like to find some jazz scales, laid out on a guitar fretboard.

Thanks for any help with this,

jazz...

For scales I'd highly reccomend the guitar grimoire.Its the definitive source for guitar scales-go to a bookstore and get it.

For jazz at least initially its most important to get a grasp on chords, and chord prograssions.An easy book I'd reccomend is chords and progressions for jazz and popular guitar by arne berle.

You really should build your reading skills.MI press has a series of books on theory one of wich is an excellent course for sight reading.

once you get that down a wee bit then you need to get a fakebook(or real book) of jazz standards.Learn as many tunes as possible.THis is the key learn the tunes.And also from triads to chords to pentatonics to diatonics learn when to give more and when to give less.

Rythm is also of the essence-accenting the beat.

When you can read music theres a wonderful book on harmony by george van eps worth getting.

also mimick other players:alan holdsworth, jim hall, wes montgomery, joe pass, barney kessell,
grant green, tal farlow, kenny burrell, john mclaughlin, al di meola, charlie christian, django reinhardt, lonnie johnson etc. etc.

I want to get new pick-ups. any recommendations????????????

i bought a tanglewood les paul and i'm getting really screechy feedback from a marshall amp.
it's a powrful amp and i don't think i should be getting that much feedback.
i'm think about getting new pick-ups. i have two humbuckers on my les paul copy and wondering if there is any good pick ups i can get.
i can afford about $250 on new ones but i would'nt take the chance on putting them in myself.

Re: I want to get new pick-ups. any recommendations????????????

Honestly, it's going to matter as to what sort of sound you want. You want "not screechy" but what else do you want? Also, installing pickups is pretty easy, you just need some rosin-core solder and a small soldering pencil(15 watt). The cost of these would be cheaper than getting them installed, and having both paid for installing and doing it myself, DYI is more rewarding and just less hassle I think.
As for pickups, many people like Duncans, Fralins, Rio Grandes, Dimarzios and Lawrences. I can't offer too much advice until I know what you're going for, and even then I can't offer much.

The sound i want is.........

it's kind of hard to explain, i want a really warm clean tone, but with extremely sharp distortion. i play mostly rock. i hate the twangy shit with clean tone. but i don't want a tone so warm it's hard to hear the higher strings

Re: The sound i want is.........

maybe a super distortion is what u are looking for ,in that case i have one from my old strat i could sell ya for $20 bucks. but u should go to guitar center and get a dimazio or seymour duncan catalog ,(hint) if you ask for a recomendation expect to get a confused look, from experiance the kids working behind the counter know less than they should for a person trying to sell pickups.

Re: I want to get new pick-ups. any recommendations????????????

I bought a semi-solid Tanglewood a couple of years ago. I experienced similar microphonic
feedback (not normal acoustic feedback). Replacing the pickups would do the trick -- any
reputable make would be an improvement. However, for the cheapest option, consider
getting the pickups sealed by a guitar tech (he'll use parafin wax or epoxy resin). This
should eliminate the microphonic feedback. Personally, I didn't bother. I just gave the
guitar to my brother...

imho dimarzio's are the best pickups out their ,if i were you i'd try "the humbucker from hell #dp156" or "the tone zone #dp155" if you have fender spacing in between your pole pieces the model numbers will have an F behind them example ( dp155F ) any good guitar shop or tech should be able to tell, i picked those models after taking a look thru their catalog.

These would be great pickups if you want to sound like Paul Gilbert, if you want a PAF tone, you'd be screwed. We really do need to know what you want to sound like before any recommendations are made, IMHO.
Seriously, you could pot pickups yourself, too, check out (www.stew-mac.com) there is a section of trade secrets where they tell you how in great detail.

no , wrong , the reason those pickups were selected was for many sounds u can get out of them, i have used that combo and can make them sound like almost any thing ,the key to tone is pickups and the way they are wired(pickup selector position), right amp for the job and most of all your hands.

Re: I want to get new pick-ups. any recommendations????????????
