"Guitarists"...

What is a guitar? A guitar is a musical instrument. It is nothing more. It is a tool, an instrument, used to make music, like a scalpel is a surgeon's instrument. You people blabber about Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Van Halen and other horrible music because the guitarists are skilled. So what? Guitar playing is not an art form in itself. It is a tool used in creating music. Maybe you should concentrate more on making music than guitars. Most of the music enjoyed by "guitarists" is crap. It is pentatonic crap. The pentatonic scale is a sign of primitive music. Look at native american music, ancient asian music, ancient celtic music, etc. Yet you non-musicians like blues... blues is worthless crap. Why dont you listen to some music that has some artistic value? Wagner or Rossini perhaps... Your goal is not art, it's guitars. Pathetic.

Re: "Guitarists"...

If that is your opinion then that's fine, but plan on being pretty lonely in it though. Or is it that you percieve yourself as some sort of guitar "purist"? Obviously this site is not for you. Do you even play guitar, and I mean really play. And I'm not talking about three-chord, bubblegum punk songs. If so, when you started playing you had to have some interest in some style to develop your skills and don't give me that crap about how you've "evolved" in using your "tool". Music is about emotion, period. If there is no emotion then it is just noise no matter what instrument is being played. Your comment about blues is completely invalid, sure blues has become a "style", but the Blues is nothing but emotion.

Re: "Guitarists"...

No sorry i don't agree. Being a guitarist is to play the guitar and take an interest in music styles, other guitars etc... not just to sit on your own playing your own music. And blues is amazing. i love it. And don't say that there aren't any talented musicians any more- you can't say Joe Satriani (my favourite guitarist) isn't talented!

Floyd Rose Buzz Problem

I have a the floyd rose system on one of my guitars. If i dont touch anything mtal on the guitar, there is small buzz that i hear when plugged in. But if i touch anything metal (ANYTHING) it stops. What is this? Is it normal? what can i do about it? Thanks

Re: Floyd Rose Buzz Problem

Yeah I have had that same problem...is your guitar "old" cause I have a guitar that is at least 14 years old and it does that same thing, I have even gotten SHOCKED when I touched my buzzing bridge! I dont think its anything to get your pants in a knot about. What kind of distortion do you use? a pedal or built in amp distortion? Cause I use a metalzone and I believe the buzz comes from my pedal, cause that pedal just has so much juice I think that it emits EMF's.

Re: Floyd Rose Buzz Problem

did you write tototal guitar about this cause i think i heard this one before you should check if theres any loose cables if there isnt and it still does it contact a local guitar shop

Incubus Tab

I been learning Pardon me by incubus by ear, but I can't quite get a couple chords in the chorus. If anyone knows where there is some accurate tab for this some, it would help a lot. I have checked most internet tabs, but all seem wrong and the don't have strumming patterns. thanks in advance.

Re: Incubus Tab

Um I'd suggest guitarworld, they have a lesson in one issue with the actual guy from the band explaining how to play it

if you really want that issue email me and I'll send you a tab, but I can't get around to it now

Buying first electric guitar

I know nothing when it comes to what is good or bad about electric guitars. I want to buy a good guitar that isn't thousands of dollars. What should I be looking for?

Re: Buying first electric guitar

u shopuld buy a bc rich (mocking bird is the best) uk price £225 usa price $650 so its not bad but if you want a good price guitar u should buy unknown makes like marlin sidewinder and wrencher

Re: Buying first electric guitar

yeah man B.C.Riches are awesome and they wont empty your bank.

Re: Buying first electric guitar

or go to route101.com you can design your own guitar for about $300

Re: Buying first electric guitar

it depends on your style of music, but many people i know started off with a strat style guitar eg very cheap but practical Hohner Rockwood (£118 new) or something like an Aria MAC (about £230 new). Ask your mates and look around a lot. Also you could consider an Epiphone Gibson (new £200). You'll have to decide on the pickups that you want- single or humbuckers.There isn't really a "good" or "bad" guitar- it's just your choice.Tip: start with something that is versatile (can play many different styles) if youre a beginner, get something more specialised when you've decided exactly what styles you like!

Re: i'm looking for a gutair tuner

You can find stuff like that in the "downloads" section of the musiciansfriend.com website.

Also if you do some searches on engines like mamma.com
and google.com you should pop up with something along the line of what you are looking for.

Also www.download.com may have a program that you can download like the one you are looking for.

Beginner

I'm a beginner as far as the guitar is concerned and I have learned a few chords from some friends or whatever, but I wannna great and to do so I need to get the basics down. Does anyone know the best web site or can anyone suggest a book for someone in my shoes?

Re: Beginner

There's a list of websites with lessons here http://www.harmony-central.com/Guitar/instruction.html
I used this site when i was starting out and it helped me quite a bit. It'll take a while but the best thing to do is probably to sort through them all. I think i remember this site helping me out when i was a complete beginner: http://www.scs.unr.edu/~scottf/

Hope this helps anyhow, good luck
Paul
