how do i keep floyd trem floating

i am confused. i changed my strings on my first floyd trem, now the thing is set back, and my strings are rubbin my pickups... well how the hell do i keep it "afloat" ???? help will be greatly appreciated

Re: how do i keep floyd trem floating

With the springs in the back. They may either need adjustment or you may need an additional sping.

Re: how do i keep floyd trem floating

The strings you put on must've been a different gage. You need to loosen the springs in the back and get the balance between the string pull and spring pull, so that the trem is level with the guitar body. It takes a little work 'cause you have to keep retuning. good luck.

looking for a guitar

hi im looking for reccomendations for a begginner's guitar below 300 dollars. any help is appreciated thanks

Re: looking for a guitar

: hi im looking for reccomendations for a begginner's guitar below 300 dollars. any help is appreciated thanks

hey, dude. i recently bought a guitar that was a step up from begginer guitars, (actually a step
down from the real american model <A Jackson KE3>) so i know a bit about that type of thing
B.C Rich makes some killer begginer models, i almost got one, had i not played the Jackson,
theyre real weird lookin (you know, the 'metal' looking guitars) i dont know what you want to
play, but if metal's your bag i'd get a B.C Rich Bronze Series Mockingbird, if youre looking
for something more versatile, then perhaps an Epiphone Les Paul, or maybe an Epiphone
SG. (also if youre into metal, another good one would be the Epiphone Goth series
explorer or flying V) if youre a strat man, dont bother with squier, b/c you can get a really
nice mexican strat or jap strat (fender, not squier) for around $250.00 on sale.

those are all i can think of, so i hope it helps

peavey backstage plus

i was playing through this amp and then it just got real quiet. there is next to no volume and when i try and turn it up , it will squeal but not real loud.
i replaced the 2 filter capacitors in it and now i am out of ideas. any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!! thanks

Re: peavey backstage plus

if it has an effects loop, try and put some switch cleaner in the return socket. I had an amp that went quiet and it was something to do with a bad contact in the effects return. good luck

Re: peavey backstage plus

That's weird b/c the *special* speaker in the pv backstage plus get's *L*O*U*D*! Especially for such a small 30W combo.

I want to know the EXACT things they play.

So if ANYONE has THE TABS, NOT THE CHORDS

history of guitar

who invented the electric guitar?

Re: history of guitar

: who invented the electric guitar?

Most people seem to think it was Les Paul. The common story is that he devised it in the 1940's when he was working in his studio with his wife, Mary Ford, recording stuff like "In the Good Ole Summertime" etc.

I'm not sure I beleive this. However, Les Paul did develop the art of the magnetic tape overdub, and later multitracking techniques which were used in Analog Recording studios (until their demise).

Check into some older maufacturers catalogues from the 1930's and 1940's, you might find a better answer there. (Gibson, for one)

OK, I'm back. Did you miss me? I did a little search of my own, so here's a quote from the Rickenbacker gallery:

"The world's first electric guitar was created in 1928 by George Beauchamp with the help of craftsman Harry Watson. Business partner Adolph Rickenbacker liked to call Beauchamp's invention the "pancake," but it was eventually the "frying pan" nickname that held fast."

So, there you have it.

Re: Lenny Breau CD

Hi,

My copy was released in 1994 by BMG Music, Manufactured by RCA Special Products, a label of BMG Direct. Also check One Way Records, 1 Prospect Avenue, Albany, NY 12206-0429. I'll keep my eyes open for any copies.

Re: Lenny Breau CD

Every now and then... amidst a dirth of e-mails requesting tab for the newest Blink-51 and Sum-182 songs... someone mentions music which I love.

It restores my faith in the human species.

It's good to find out that not everyone is falling prey to the "bedroom-eyed" charms of that hot little blonde girl.

It's called an E-Bow(electronic bow) and its used to create violin like swells. There is one used in the intro to "we can be heroes" by david bowie. It works on a magnetic principle.

Thanks a lot.

Henry.

Re: TUTORIALS ON HOW TO USE THE PLECTRON

I saw a "PLECTRON" on star trek once. Love Bob
