Addendum

I should have mentioned the mop inlay in the bridge and the "custom" notation on the neck. Course I know it's a J-200.

B.C Rich Warlock, anyone?

I've got an old warlock rave 2 back from '94, is it worth anything or should i keep hold of it, anybody?
Thankx

Re: B.C Rich Warlock, anyone?

i don't eally know, but if ur gonna sell it, and depending on where u live,and whut the price is i'll buy it.

Re: B.C Rich Warlock, anyone?

I would hold onto the Warlock I have seen some from the later eighties going from $700 to $900.00 in pawnshops. Some of these even have the nasty hot pink finnish with a standard B.C. Rich headstock. It would be like getting rid of an old Kramer.

changing guitar strings

I need help on how to change electric guitar strings. I'm broke so I can't pay to have it done. Any help would be appreciated. It's a fender strat and it has a wammy bar.

Re: changing guitar strings

Basically here's what to do. Start with one string and unwind it from the tuning peg, then pull it free. At this point I like to take a pair of wire cutters and cut off the string about six or eight inches from where it wound around the peg. Push the string out through the bridge. Put the new string in through the hole that the old one came out of and pull it all the way through until the ball end stops. Stick the end through the hole on the tuning peg. Essentially all you have to do is wind it, leave enough slack so that you get a few wraps around the peg or it will never stay in tune. There are better ways to wrap it around the peg but I can't begin to describe them in just words. Use a little sensability and you should be able to do this with no problems. Just do one string at a time and put the new string on the same way you took the old one off.

flamenco tuners

I bought my daughter an old Conrad Flamenco guitar, but she simply cannot handle the friction tuners. Does anyone have a solution? I have not been able to find any machines for nylon strings that are six independent tuners. Thanks.

Pleeze: Don't ever make another tuning-mec. Its an old original system. To make altarations could ruin the price of the instrument.
Buy some special paste in a violin shop/repair/maker (-or cello etc). Take the guitar with you and let them show you.

What Do You Hate More RAP or POP

Me, i fuckin hate rap,atleast pop tries a little,(music wise). But rap(hip hop lol) is shit, a retards can come up with stuff like that..
I sometimes practice for hours(learning chords,scales,modes), and then see some talentLESS rapper talk about his nuts and make more money than some of the greatest rockers of all time..
I guess the only reason to become a rapper is if you SUCK at every instrument and won't prob never(or try)
to become a musician. So i guess i'm stuck watching(and fucking listening)to assholes that make over every song, and then try to make there own(garbage).
Well that's my two cents, thanks for reading all this....

Re: What Do You Hate More RAP or POP

You are so right. I have nothing to add.

Re: What Do You Hate More RAP or POP

I hate popular rap but not as much as rapturous pop!

i like rap better

pop is nothing but white people bullshit so who ever don't like rap are fuckin rednecks :)

Re: i like rap better

Rap is nothing but black people..not that i support pop or racism in anyway, but at least pop sounds a bit like music. Rap is kinda crossing over into pop anyway

Re: What Do You Hate More RAP or POP

Rap is for those who digg fat bass and tight funky beats, it takes skills to be a good rapper, you have to be able to drop fat beats. its not that easy, i just keep it real funky.

GO RAP

I think rap is the greatest thing that ever happened to the world. I would giv anything to become a famouse rapper like Emimen. Some people have a talent to play instruments and others can sing or rap. It is not your decision to decide that everybody sucks if they can't play an instrument.cause they have a hard enough time with out your shit.

Musical talent aside, RAP IS DESTROYING SOCIETY!!!

For a minute, I will I diverge from the musical talent discussion, and point out the fact that rap music, in general, promotes VIOLENCE, RAPE and RACISM!!!
Now, there are a lot of horrible lyrics made by a lot of different kinds of 'artists'. However, there is nothing more glorified by the mainstream media than the 'thug life' of murder and EXTREME disrespect towards woman. It makes me physically ill to think about what kind of horrible things very young kids are picking up from rap culture. Thanks for your time...

Re: What Do You Hate More RAP or POP

pOR fUCK u BITCH PICECE OOF SHIT BASTARD WIT NO DICK

Re: What Do You Hate More RAP or POP

Rap is absoltely the worst garbage to ever come down the pike.What really makes me laugh is these
little suburban white kids who try to convince themselves and the rest of the world that they're
hardcore ghetto thugs.Give me a break.
Sampling someone else's music and yapping over top
of it about killing cops or pimpin' some 'ho' is the lowest common denomonator.I believe it's lasted this long because the record companies have figured out that it's cheap to produce(after all they're stealing someone else's music)and when one rapper gets to B.I.G. for his britches bring in the next victim.Repeat the cycle and rake in the bucks.Most Rap is by people with no talent,
no brains and even less scruples.It makes Disco
sound like Mozart.It makes hair band ballads sound
like epics.Very little of this crap will ever be remembered even by the people who wasted their money on it.There will be a backlash against this garbage very soon and I can't wait to be there to drive a nail in the coffin of this god-awful trash.

Re: To all u people who dont understand

First off, your a dumd ass. you don't even understand rap. just because you rap doesn't mean your a ghetto thug. you probably dont even know what ghetto or a thug means. before you judge rap music, take a change and sit your ass down and listen to the lyrics. these rappers are rapping about things that happened in their lifes. but of course you wouldn't unserstand. some pop music i listen i really like, because i actually listen to it instead of being stereotypical.

Re: What Do You Hate More RAP or POP

I would say that this discussion needs a little breaking down. First off for this viewpoint I think all music genres can be looked at as being comprised of 2 categories: catchy radio songs and difficult technical music. Catchy is the stuff that gets stuck in your head because it follows a familiar or easy to remember rythm. Not only rap pulls this trick, for example most mainstream music can be observed doing this, such as pussy punk, pop(I think vocal artists when I think this), country(most of the time) and 80's mainstream hair metal.
then you have your difficult music. Things like the guitar solos from pre-black album Metallica.(not that I didn't like post-black-album Metallica). Music like the 7/8ths and 11/8ths timing used in Mudvayne's new album, The End of All Things to Come. I personally value music which is difficult to play and dificult to take in because I find the experience of such music more engrossing. While I highly doubt that any rap falls under this technical category, I'm sure there are rap fans who might try to persuade me otherwise. I could see how talking(or rapping) very quickly and maintaining rythm would be a difficult thing to learn, although in my opinion not as difficult as learning to play guitar. But hey, I've never really tried it.

But diverging from that issue, people are going to like different styles of music. I don't really care what you like to listen to as long as you don't try to make me listen to it. I guess many people probably enjoy rap becase they play it at dances a lot and they enjoy dancing, or it's "good dance music". I really don't enjoy dancing, so that's of no value to me. Also I would think that techno would make better dance music, but that's just me.

Re: What Do You Hate More RAP or POP

I HATE POP and rap! it sucks ass so hard! so i listen to heavy metal (HAIL SATAN) which kick arse hard! like metallica, S.O.A.D, tenacious D, him and iron maiden! i think all pop artists should be slautered in the most painfull way. while more rock bands are made.
i think also r&b, rap and dance 'artists' sould die. You don't need dance music, you can dance to 'the rasmus.pop is unneeded (and sucks) all we need is:
rock
heavy metal
nu metal
goth metal
punk rock
sk8er rock
grunge
and satan. HAIL SATAN!!!!

Rap SUCKS!!!!

I cant believe anyone listens to rap! Everybody in the rap music industry is a bunch of egocentric idiots that do nothing but sing (technically they dont sing, they talk with a rhyme) about their cars, their women, their money. I hope they look into the future and realize that when their children realize that their elder was a rapper, their children will think," I cant believe my dad did that stupid shit. What a pathetic loser. I can't believe he thought that was music."
Rap is the reason why society is so jacked up, and rap is the reason why our school systems are failing, rap is the reason for all of the drugs, and rap is the reason why so many damn couples divorce today

Rap And Pop

This is what really pisses me off, the complete arrogance and stupidity of sections of the rock audience, what astounds me more is that this is a guitar website! you're not fit to call yourself a musician unless you accept all kinds of music, and evidently actual musicians (that is to say not the people who go around denouncing every kind of music they don't like Beethoven sucks! Mozart sucks! cause i don't like the music they wrote so that means they must be shit! As far as musicianship is concerned it doesn't appear to matter, you never hear people saying that Nirvana were shit despite the fact that Kurt was scarcely a musician. You choose to ignore the fact that a lot of rap artists are very talented lyricists and that pop music presents some great session guitar players as technically brilliant as anyone in rock music. So in conclusion stop making an ass of yourselves! you're embarrassing the rest of the rock music audience

Re: What Do You Hate More RAP or POP

well i see u have alot of animosity against rappers. that troubles me. i happen to be a rapper and i really dont like it when pussy fags bad mouth rap. do u not understand what we're saying or somthing?rap is music rappers are the best lyricist. just because we dont play intruments dont mean its not music.well basically i would just like to say fuck u fuck u all fuck all u who dont like rap. oh yeah i hate pop more!

Re: Why hate rap, cant dance? or scared that its telling the truth about music?

Rap is da bomb. you can dance to it, sing to it, and or course understand it. just becasue you people who hate rap dont understand it, dont say it sucks. just tell the truth and say you just dont understand. don't be ignorant. rapping is a skill, you dont need any instrument. but with rock music all you do is yell at the top of your lungs and push each other around and do this weird thing with your fingers and stick your tongue out. and you call that dancing Aha!!!

Re: EMG pickups

I am a huge fan of these bands I also learned the hard lesson. I put a set of EMG eighty ones in my Jackson V. It sounded awful what I done I replaced these with a set of Carvin M-22. Which sounds great alot of the bands you named use amps other than marshall. I almost wander if that has something to due with the sound. Slipknot uses Carvin Amps,With Mesa Boogie heads.Myself I also switched amps recently from Marshall to Crate. Pantra uses Randall amps.

Travis

Are the carvin's active aswell and are they loud and crunchy

Wildwood Flower Popular Country Guitar Instrumenta for over 70 years

Wildwood Flower a Guitar Song Popular for more than 70 Years

Few Guitar Instrumentals have remained popular for over 70 years. Wildwood Flower was written in the 1800s as a Vocal. The song had been passed down from Mother to Daughter through the Generations. The Subject material in Wildwood Flower makes it a song for women to sing. In 1929 The Carter Family Recorded this Folk Song. Maybelle Carter took a Guitar Break on the Song. After Maybelle Carter took her Guitar Break on the Recording of Wildwood Flower, the song became a Country Music Guitar Standard, and the song was seldom sang again.

Maybelle Carter played some Great Guitar and Auto Harp. Her Guitar Playing was so good that she established Wildwood Flower as a Guitar Instrumental that has been played by the Best Country Guitar Players for over 70 years.

Merle Travis had a top 10 Country Music Recording of this song in the 50s with the Hank Thompson Western Swing Band. The Merle Travis Recording with the Hank Thompson Band has been one of the very few Guitar Instrumentals that has ever made the Billboard Top 40 in Country Music.

Chet Atkins Recorded Wildwood Flower. Many of the best Nashville Guitarist have recorded Wildwood Flower.

On MP3 COM the song Wildwood Flower has been at the top of more than one Sub Genre Top 40 Chart. It’s a song that is so beautiful that people continue to play it when they see it on MP3 COM.

When I was a boy living in the Ozarks if someone played the Guitar they had better know how to play Wildwood Flower or they would only play once for an audience. In the Ozarks everyone who played the Guitar was expected to play this beautiful folk Song that Maybelle Carter Popularized as a Guitar Instrumental.

Few Guitar Players in the world have ever played a song so well that the song was changed from a Vocal to an Instrumental. This shows what a great Guitar Maybelle Carter has been. Maybelle’s Daughter, June Carter Married Johnny Cash. Johnny Cash admired the Guitar Playing of Maybelle Carter so much that he had “The Carter Sisters and Mother Maybelle” booked to tour with him in the 60s.

The influence of The Carter Family is Legendary in the annals of Folk and Country Music., Maybelle Carter Became a Guitar Legend when she took her Guitar Break on the Carter Family Recording of Wildwood Flower in 1929.
