Speaker info needed

Is anyone familiar with the FANE AX12-100W speaker and the JENSEN C12K 100W speaker?
Can you describe how these speakers sound? Would they be good for playing Blues?
Any info would be of great help. Thanks

Re: Schematics

i can't tell you where to get the exact jackson schematic from jackson but if you go to seymourduncan.com you can find a schematic for that configuration. i think they have their schematics under "support" and follow the links.

As for guitars im either going to buy a prs mccarty or a les paul standard? please help me consider a choice!

Re: AMP AND GUITAR HELP!!!!!!!

what kind of music do you play? and what kind of sound are you looking for?

i just want to know the basics so i can play!!

hi, im currently teaching myself guitar and ive recently been collecting music tabs from my admired bands and i'd just like to know how to read these tabs just even something telling me what the numbers mean..it's all a blurr at this moment and makes no sense, please help
from stella

Re: i just want to know the basics so i can play!!

Basically you have six lines on paper representing each of the six strings on your guitar. Looking straight at the paper the bottom most line represents your low E string (which is the thickest string at the top of the guitar, closest to you head when you hold the guitar) and the top most represents your high E string (which is thinist string at the bottom closest to your feet when you hold the guitar). The numbers represent which fret to hold.

-----
-----
-----
-----
-----
---5- This would indicate that you fret the E string at the 5th fret...timing is sometimes indicated but usually you just have to know the song for timing. All of the other symbols represent things like palm muting, vibrato, bending, hammers on or pulling off...I would recommend that you go to www.olga.net and read their section on how to read tab.

what should i do?

i want to buy a bass guitar and i want to know if i should first buy the bass guitar then learn the notes or first learn how to read the notes then buy the guitar

george harrison's effects

Could someone tell me wich effect does George use or how does he do to get that sound in most of his solos?
Thanks

Re: george harrison's effects

There are some really good beatles books that cover this question. You should look them up on amazon and then see if they're available in your local library.

hi im an absolute beginner, i can play a few riffs like the beatles daytripper,nirvana come as you are , can any1 recommend any other good easy tabs please

Re: can any 1 recommend some easy tab

Are ya into chords or more "solo" stuff?
Check out http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/ to look for songs that you know and can play!
Neil Young's "Driveby" is a beautiful, easy song.

Re: can any 1 recommend some easy tab

There's lot's of songs out there they're just hard to find. Here's some of the ones I know that are pretty easy: Closing time by semisonic; all I can do is write about it Lynard skynard; free falling by tom petty; If not for you, by bob dylan; Take it easy by The eagles; Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffet; Run Around by Blues Travelers; Southren Cross CSNY; Not you bottle and Heroin is so passe by the dandy warhols. Let me know if you want any more.
hope these help your search and If you get any good one could you let me know? that'd be great! Good Luck!

Re: can any 1 recommend some easy tab

It depends on how easy you want them? This was a great starter site for me, it only has a few riffs but I found them effective.

Hope you enjoy :)

Re: can any 1 recommend some easy tab

sure, I am a beginner and I learned a lot of my chords and strumming with American pie. It's not super easy as in there are lots of chord changes but the chords that are in it are pretty easy to learn and reach without having to bar anything.

Epiphone les paul problem HELP!!

Can anyone help me with this set-up problem?
I have been the proud owner of said guitar for about two years now and it has been a joy to play for all that time. Recently ,however, a little niggling fault has occured that I can't seem to get rid of.
In standard tuning when you strum all the open strings the guitar sounds fine. The problem occurs when you fret the 3rd string (g string). A horrible harmonic sounds with the note, which sound absolutly disgusting when amplified (kind of flat). Interestingly the string sounds fine when not fretted or fretted from the 7th fret up.
Any ideas or solutions wil be very much appriciated.

Re: Epiphone les paul problem HELP!!

without seeing the instrument it sounds like your neck's not straight. i have an ibanez with a screwed up neck and it fret buzzez really bad from the first to the fourth frets. the rest of the neck is fine. i actually started to write you a lenghty procedure but i reread it and decided i'm horrible at giving writen instructions. basically i would check out the straightness of the neck and see about doing a truss rod adjustment...have you had one done anytime soon? Also, check for wear on the underside of the strings in the fret region, too much wear can throw off the harmonics.

HI sorry i fumbled my first message it could be two things.1)neck relief when you hold the string down at the first fret and the last there should be .007 to.010 gap arund the 8 th fret if not you could have a slight backbow easy to fix.however this should show up on more than one string but not always. 2)neck trist this is a harder fix but i have done many by just a fret relevel and recrown And a 3rd is a fret loose or lifting pull on the end of the fret up lightly to look for this.Good luck

Re: Epiphone les paul problem HELP!!

I love my les paul i've had it a year and a half and it WAS lovely to play. The problem is i also have a ibanez SA series and i play them both threw a marshall JTM60 combo. The ibanez, loads of distortion and a great sound. The les paul, same amp settings but hardly any distortion at all. also i tune it all all up perfectly fingerpick some bar chords and it sounds painful. i know the reason isn't my playing cos i do the same thing on my ibanez and it sounds perfect.
PLEASE HELP!!!

appraisal

i have an sd curlee usa 6 string electric. bought new in the later 70's. excellent condition. just wanted to know the approx. value, and maybe a little history. thanx

Re: appraisal

This company was around from the mid seventies to early 80's. They're pretty unique guitars made mostly with cool woods and finishes. Some were built in illinois and others (labled sd curlee international were made in japan). They made about 12,000 basses and 3,000 guitars in the U.S. they're worth around $400 to $500 in good condition.

Re: appraisal

I have one that does not say SD Curlee on the headstock like one that my dad has. Mine says S.D. Curlee Design on the body (top). Any info about it? I could sure use some info. Thanks.

Re: Rouge Amplifiers?

It's some stupid Japanese company. they aren't very good, the gain isn't half of a Marshall. save your money and buy a gorilla amp they are sweet.

Re: Rouge Amplifiers?

Rogue are distributed by the Hana corporation out of Korea.The quality is that of a marshall mg-15 considering ther are bith made in the same warehouse using the same materials........

"Faster playability"?

Hi everyone. I was learning some Malmsteen stuff, having a hard time. Someone recommended getting a guitar with "faster playability." What does that mean? What makes a guitar quicker to play? Frets? Type of neck? Thickness of neck? Curvature of fretboard??

What type of specs do fast players, like Malmsteen or Satriani or Vai use? Thanks much!!
