tune a guitar

what are the cords you use to tune a guitar?

Re: tune a guitar

I just use a standard fender cord (any will do)... plug it into the gutiar/amp and I'am good to go... oh yeah the amp has a power cord too (not to be confused with a power chord), that should be plugged in too.

You do not use cords to tune a guitar,get a small tuner at a music store, or go to the top string ,count down five frets,press and make the next string sound like that, or tune harmonically, its quite complex at first but with practice it becomes Quite EZ!!,get a book and read, its worth the time and effort!!

Mary,
Don't pay any attention to the obviously sarcastic answer. Aside from the tune that somebody suggested, I'd recommend you buy a guitar pitch pipe. It will sound the 6 required tones for you to tune your guitar to by ear. Just listen carefully and match the note on the pipe. Learn to tune by ear in case you break, lose, or forget your electronic tuner.

Difference Between Acoustic and Electric Guitars

I've been watching a lot of bands play guitar and I'm pretty new at playing the guitar (acoustic) and I watch them play chords that I've never ever seen before. So is there a difference with the chords? When I try those chords, it sounds terribly different..

Re: Difference Between Acoustic and Electric Guitars

You've probably seen socalled barre chords. Most beginner guitar-books/teachers don't start with these chords right away becausse it requires a bit of training to make these chords sound right. You probably have just learned open-chords. The difference is that with with barre-chords you just you're index finger as a nut. This way you can play chords longer up the neck in the with the same fingerings as the open chords but in different keys, which makes the it very easy to transpose. You just have to larn the chord ones and you can play it in all the differnt keys. So if you know the open chords you really know a lot more chords than you think. I recomand you to start practising barre chords right away.

Re: Difference Between Acoustic and Electric Guitars

well, electric players tend to use barre chords, or power chords, acoustic tend to use open, or first position chords

How to get that u2 sound

been wondering how to get that kewl sound that edge uses in songs like streets have no name. does it have to do with delay or sumthin?

Re: How to get that u2 sound

: : been wondering how to get that kewl sound that edge uses in songs like streets have no name. does it have to do with delay or sumthin?

You coudn't get that exact same sound, since the Edge uses gear (guitar pedals) that are not even on the market anymore, plus in songs like "Where the Streets have no name" (my favorite) he had like more than 5 audio technicians modulating his effects. Also in that song there are three different guitar sounds, two for rhythm and one for melody, they were recorder on separate tracks and then mixed as one. It would be very hard, almost impossible to create that exact sound, but you can come very, very close. I use a Boss DD-6 (Digital Delay) and set it to 400 ms (miliseconds). Then to that i add a mild distortion, and some reverb. I have had great fun with it, you can also use the same guitar effects to play "Pride, in the name of love". Hope this helps you :-D

Randall rg100sc

anyone have the Randall rg100sc combo amp? how good is it? please reply

Taylor or Washburn?

Hi, I have been wanting to upgrade to a new guitar
but I'm not sure what to get. I've heard that Taylors
and Washburns are pretty good but I'm still not sure
which to get. I'm wanting to spend about from 200-500
dollars Could anyone give me some info on these
two types of guitars?

Re: Taylor or Washburn?

Re: Taylor or Washburn?

I had a taylor big baby and put a l.r. baggs double shot pickup system in. and it sounded great but I ended up with about the same amount of money tied in it as an Ibanez Artwood would have costed. The artwood offers a real fishman pickup and a killer neck action for under $400 I forgot that it sounds better than some of the higher priced Washburns.

Re: Taylor or Washburn?

Taylors and Washburns are nice - but i suggest playing around with it first before just purchasing name brands. dont order via internet (you never know what you will get) so go to a music shop and try different brands. that way you can see which guitar best suits you - that's the mistake i made!

Re: Taylor or Washburn?

$200 - $500? Better stick with the Washburn, unless you're interested in the baby model taylor...

Better sound/lower volumn

Short of kickin' out $300+ for a Power Brake, how can I make better use my DeVille's power/sound without fryin'my ears?

Re: Better sound/lower volumn

: Short of kickin' out $300+ for a Power Brake, how can I make better use my DeVille's power/sound without fryin'my ears?
YOUR DEVILLE DOES'NT NEED A POWER BRAKE---THATS WHAT MASTER VOLUME IS FOR. IF IT'S FRYING YOUR EARS TO GET WHAT YOU THINK IS AN ACCEPTABLE SOUND AT AN ACCEPTABLE VOLUME, THEN YOU NEED AN AMP WITH LESS OUTPUT. BUT BEFORE YOU GO SHOPPING FOR A DIFFERENT AMP TRY DIALING UP A VOLUME THATS PLEASING TO YOUR EARS ON THE CLEAN CHANELL---THEN USE AN OVERDRIVE OR DISTORTION OR CLEAN VOLUME BOOST TO BRING OUT YOUR SOLOS. THE DEVILLES AND DELUXES ARE VERY LOUD AND STRIDENT SOUNDING AMPS FOR THEIR POWEWR RATING--BUT I HAVE PLAYED BOTH AMPS AT VERY SMALL VENUES---THE VOLUME KNOB ON YOUR GUITAR IS A VERY USEFAL TOOL AS WELL. GOOD LUCK!!
