need positive advice

Just starting out, went thru a few books and sites, and got coupla questions :
1) can someone REALLY teach themselves to play guitar ? no tutor, just some books and sound clips ?
can someone with this experience enlighten me ?
2) Will learning acoustic first help me play better with electric ? Or am I wasting my time ?
any rockers here who didnt go thru acoustic ?

Re: need positive advice

Of course you can teach yourself to play, but always better to at least be around someone who already plays to point out stuff when you are having a hard time. You can't do it with just 'some books', I did and remember going through (and still do to a certian extent) 100's of books on instruction/technique/tab/etc, most of which was garbage (imo), you kinda got to wade through it all and pick out the good stuff and stuff that works for you, thats where as a beginner someone else to help you out is invaluable.

As to acoustic?electric it's up to you, depending on what you want to play (to start), if you wanna rock out go electric as it will give you some gratification more quickly (easy to lean alot of tunes that are easy to play) which will keep your motivation up during the many frustrating periods you will encounter.

Jap Strat

Hi
Can someone help me identify my JAp Strat Serial number L007108. It has a USA neck plate with a contoured scallop on bottom horn. Original floyd rose and LAce sensor pickups. incl a red humbucker. I was wondering if it is a factory issue or has someone perhaps changed the neck. The serial number is on the back of the neck near where it is bolted onto the body. It looks like a vintage reissue with a small headstock and vintage tuners.
Thank you

Peavey 5150

Ive heard this is a great metal amp for the money. Ive also heard the clean channel is a bit iffy (does it even have clean sounds....) anyway i was thinkin of that, a marshall dsl 401 and a marshall avt 2000 100
any suggestions would be great

Re: Peavey 5150

the peavey is good. if you want a really nice amp for metal and that will fit into you budget then check out some of randall's amps. if you have the money i strongly suggest Mesa Boogie. marshall is good but i don't recammend

i need some help

the harmonics on my guitars are always going bad on my high e string. i have taken them in to get set ups done many times and it has gotten very expencive. is there any way to prevent this from happening

Re: i need some help

You can't get rid of harmonics, just don't hit them, either lift your hand completely or apply enough pressure to damp em out.

B-52's guitar style

I love that sound. I know that Ricky Wilson played a 5 string Mosrite. Can anyone tell me about tunings and other gear? Thanks!

Re: B-52's guitar style

the sound of ricky was the combination of his guitar (mosrite sound like nothing else), the type of strings used (probably surf guitarists strings named "chrome"), the way he used to string (open tuning + 4 or 5 strings), the Boss distortion DS-1. i play on mosrite, and i think i'm near finding the same sound, stringing and way of playing. sorry for my poor english, this mail come from France (europe).
best

Actually it was a 4 string, the heavy strings being tuned EA or EB with the light strings being AA or BB drones Try it, it works!

I am also searching for any other info on his guitar style.

Bass amp with electric guitar

I've got a Johnson Stage 15B bass amp, and I wanna try out an electric guitar. Can I use the bass amp for the electric guitar?

Re: Bass amp with electric guitar

: I've got a Johnson Stage 15B bass amp, and I wanna try out an electric guitar. Can I use the bass amp for the electric guitar?

Eddy...Yes you can. You may not get much highend out of your guitar so just play around with it by turning the bass control down a bit and see what you get. Half of my guitar amps are BASS amps but I TRICK em up by changing to a guitar speaker with a high db level and chang some of the capacitors in the amp to a higher value so I can get more treble out of em.

epiphone lp standard

Does anybody know how one can tell where some of these newer epis were made? I've heard some where made in the US, is this true?

Re: epiphone lp standard

: Does anybody know how one can tell where some of these newer epis were made? I've heard some where made in the US, is this true?

The new LP standards are out of Korea but have an 18 point check when they reach the US. Main difference is finishing (neck) and the bulk of the instrument is made of three pieces of mahogany rather than one solid block like the Nashville Gibson LP's.

Guitar direct to PA not POD

What do you think would be the best to go direct to PA, I have a pod. Rackmountable!

Re: Guitar direct to PA not POD

i strongly suggest mic'n a 4/12 cab rather than going direct. if you mic you get a nice punchy crunch. it is easier to just go direct but the sound is not as heavy and it also tends to be VERY MUSHY and cluttery if you go direct. if you have any other live sound questions feel free to contact me. kingv417@cs.com

distortion thru pedal in amp

Hi everybody and thank you for at least trying to help me by reading this...i have a boss gt-3 guitar processor and a peavey bandit 112 amp....i dont really like the distortion samples of the pedal but i love the distortion in the amp...is it possible to put a nice clean sound with delay and chorus or whatever other effects on the pedal and run it thru my amp so the effects of the pedal mix perfectly with the distortion in the amp?...will the distortion have delay or only the clean sound? that is what i want to do...i want the distortion to have delay to. is it guitar to input of the pedal..out of the pedal to the input of the amp OR......guitar to input of pedal...output of pedal into input effects loops and out of the efx loop back into the pedal?...wich one is the best for what i want to do?

thanx alot sorry for the long message
miguel@univhearst.édu

Re: distortion thru pedal in amp

i had the same problem but with an alesis pre-amp. if the pedal has an fx loop then i can help you. if the pedal has an fx loop here is what you do. run your guitar into the return on the pedal's fx loop. then run out of the OUTPUT on the pedal into you amp. do not use FX SEND to go back to you amp. by doing this you bypass the pre-amp signal "meaning distortions and eq's" thus letting you use the fx in the pedal. like i said if it doesn't have an fx loop i can't help you. if you are interested i have an alesis quadraverb fx modual for guitar. it sounds great but i have no need to keep it in my mesa rack anymore. i also have an art modual i am willing to sell. both of these will give the sound you want especially the alesis. my e-mail is kingv417@cs.com

What are good strings to use as a beginner??

Okay, I'm just starting to learn guitar and need to know what kinds of strings are the best for beginners since there's so many to chose from.
Thanks!

Re: What are good strings to use as a beginner??
