Strumming

Has anyone got any tips on strumming please. I can play a few tunes but they all seem a bit same same. I know this is a pretty basic question sorry.

Re: Strumming

Try not just holding on with your left (fretting) hand. Relax it occasionally (rhythmically) to muffle the sound momentarily. You can get a nice 'shuffle' when you get the hang of it.

converter box or plugs for amlifiers.

Could anyone tell me what's required to convert voltage from North American to North European voltage for an amp? I don't think the regular plug conveter will cut it. (I'm travelling to Holland with an amp.)

It would be good to know about, for example, if there's a "master" converter box, so I can travel anywhere with one less headache (also how much it might run). All responses are welcome and greatly appreciated.

Re: converter box or plugs for amlifiers.

If the converter will handler the current load from your amp it should work fine. A converter designed to run a shaver will not cut it. The spec sheet that came with the amp should tell you the current draw or just get a converter that will supply at least the amount of current the fuse is set to draw. So if your amp is fused at ten amps your converter should be pretty close to that. You need to get one for the voltage that you are going to be plugging into. Differnet countries use different voltages and phasing. I don't think there is a universal converter

Re: converter box or plugs for amlifiers.

Some 'universal' converter box exist, with something like 20 outputs.
You should look in electronic stores or web sites. I saw some of them.
but I don't know if it works fine.
Take care, in Europe, voltage is higher than in usa.

learning to play guitar??

hi, about to start learning guitar, what i want to know is is it easier to learn on an accoustic guitar or electric guitar, once u are ok on one, is it easier to then play on the other one also, if i want to get lesons from somone wwould it matter if i had an electric or accoustic guitar??? thanks

learning guitar

Hi!
It is actually better to learn on an acoustic, as you can master the basics and it is less complicated (no electronics etc) and you should learn to pick notes as you will need to be able to do this when you ge better. Electrics are easier to play as they have thinner necks and you can play more easier on the higher frets. If you start on acoustic you can then play electric more easily. You can have lessons for both or just one depending on what you want. Remember however that the acoustic is harder to play.I have lessons for acoustic and teach myself electric.

algo de joaquin rodrigo?

Hola como vieron me llamo martin y toco la guitarra, admiro a pepe romero, y las composiciones de joaquin rodrigo, por consiguiente les queria preguntar si tienen a mano o conoces algun sitio que me pueda bajar partituras, o en formato Power tab de joaquin, o quien sabe, si ustedes tienen, como por ejemplo Invocacion y Danza.
desde ya muchas gracias, y les mando saludos colegas musicos.

Yo conozco una muy buena...

Al igual que tu, lo admiro y la vez toco guitarra (clasica) aunque mis preferencias tienden hacia la guitarra flamenca, como sea, en la siguiente pagina puedes encontrar lo que buscas en partituras (incluye el afamado concierto de aranjuez; los tres movimientos completos). Visitala y compruebalo: www.classicalguitar.nl

Simon&Patrick, Ibanez or Dean?

Hi,
I'm soon going to buy a new solid top, steel-stringed, 100% acoustic guitar. I will probably be choosing from either a Simon&Patrick, Ibanez or Dean for about $400 (I'm from sweden, prices may be different here). Do you have any recommendations? I play blues and folk, mostly with my fingers.
Right now the Simon&Patrick seems like the best one, since they are only making acoustic guitars they problably know what they're doing.

But please make some suggestions.

Re: Simon&Patrick, Ibanez or Dean?

I have a Simon and Patrick. It's a good guitar but I think I spent too much for it($400+). Good Japanese guitars like Takamine are a better value.

Re: Simon&Patrick, Ibanez or Dean?

: Hi,
I have a Seagull SM6 Gloss and S&P6 Cedar, both are excellent guitars made by Godin. Construction is of an high standard, and the deep rich sound generated by both guitars could be produced from a guitar with a much higher prices tag than $400.
The body of the Seagull are slightly smaller than the S&P which make holding a little more comfortable. Both are excellent no frills guitars which will only get better with age.

i need help finding a good processor

Im currently looking for a new porcessor for my electric gutair.Unfortunately i have only been playing for three years and only one year on electric so i am not alll together sure what companies i should buuy and if something is worth buying i look foward to hopefully hearing from someone who can posssiibly enlighten me

Re: i need help finding a good processor

if you got lots of ca$h get a roland! they can be from anywhere in the hundreds to thousands but they are simply the BEST processing company today. if you cant get a roland buy a Boss they are the next best and if you cant get a boss look to Korg, Zoom, and Digitech but NEVER and I do say NEVER BUY A DOD!!! they are built like shit and the FX are stinking horrible!

if you are serious about your FX get a Roland V-Guitar processor with the Special Roland attachable pickup system and you will be totally state of the art in the guitar FX realm.

Re: i need help finding a good processor

I run a Zoom 505 in my rig. If you don't have a lot of cash then these little numbers are pretty good. They do the job. Be aware that they do miss out on a few things like an expression pedal but for a small outlay they get the job done and don't sound too bad. You haven't been learning long and probably aren't playing live yet so be wary of handing out hugh amounts of cash for a system that you won't get full use out of. Remember you can always upgrade later.

Re: i need help finding a good processor

For korg, i recommend you to try ax100g, ax1000g, and ax1500g. they are cheap, and sound great. And for my ear they are better than zoom and digitech, even boss.

They are great for practice (ax100g has drums loops), live and recording.
very easy to use (like using stompboxes) and to get good sound.

goodluck

You're jokin' right?
When you get older you'll learn that anything that comes easy is worthless, you don't appreciate it.
I'm afraid there are no short cuts, no easy ways.
You could learn a few basic chords quick (D,A,E.etc) and fool a few people but it takes years to really know your instrument and even then there's still stuff to learn.
If you haven't got a teacher, get onto one of the guitar tuition sites, there are heaps of 'em.
Play 2 or 3 hours (I hate the word practice) every day and in twelve months or so you'll be surprised at how your playing improves.
Don't just play scales and exercises, learn a few songs and it'll make every step of this wonderful journey a joy. Record what you play so you'll have benchmarks to compare your future expertise to.
Get into a band, any band!
Doesn't matter how bad you are it'll speed up your progress. Learn to sing while you play it's good to get into the habit early in your musical career.
If you really have a passion for the guitar it'll be easy but if you're only in love with the idea of being a rock star it'll wear off and you may as well not bother, take up golf or something.

Sequencer

I am thinking about buying a music sequencer for use on stage and I'm interested to hear any comments on the Yamaha QY700 or the Roland equivalent.

DeArmond T400 or Starfire Special?

I'm planning on buying a (semi)hollowbody by DeArmond. I really like the sound of their single-coil pickups. The T400 has a warmer sound, but has problems with feedback. The Starfire Special has the sustain block, sounds less warm, but no problems with feedback. Who can advice me?

guitar software

Does anyone know of a real good program for scales and chords? I've tried a dozen or so of them and they are not what I'm looking for
