Re: Really Need Help On SOLOS

I have a problem. Iv'e been playing for 4 some-odd years and i practice a LOT. I practice about 3-5 hours a day in all. Every day of the week. I need some advice on pulling off notes cleanly. im learning some Stevie Ray Vaughn and i cant hit the tone bends on "Testify". They require the use of multiple fingers at once' and i cant seem to hold one note (pulled up a fret or two) and hit another. Help me out, pleez

Re: Orlando band seeks guitarist

hi,
im not responding to the guitarist ad, but i was wondering if you could help me out. my band is in desperate need of a practice space. we've been kicked out of a few storage spaces lately. my question is where do you guys play? do you know of any places where they'd allow bands to play regularly ( we dont' mind sharing with another band and splitting rent). thank you for your time..

Fender Bassman

Has anyone used a Strat through a Fender Bassman. My Fender Twin does'nt have any balls, so I was thinking about buying a Bassman.

Re: Fender Bassman

: Has anyone used a Strat through a Fender Bassman. My Fender Twin does'nt have any balls, so I was thinking about buying a Bassman.

I have a silverface 68'Bassman, and it sounds great with my Strat. I use a Tubescreamer, a Boss DS1 distort
tion pedal, and occasionally a Digitech RP100 with the Strat. But,sometimes I plug the Strat straight in to
the Fender and it sounds good also. The effects add to
the ballsiness of the tone however. It can get real loud. Good balance of tone: from clean to overdriven,
depending on the settings. This is the second one I've
owned. The 1st one I let go of, like a fool. They're
priced reasonably, depending where you get them. Under
rated. Try for yourself.

My 68'Bassman is great, and loud. I play an SG Standard , SG junior @ an LP Special with or WITHOUT an Maestro fuzz ,Fuzz Face , Boss Blues Drvr ,VoodooLabTrem and an old Fender Reverb unit. It's got lots of good musical crunch when driven and cleans up nice when you roll the vol. down.

old Gibson guitar

An elderly friend showed me an old Gibson guitar that belong to his late wife. It is of the arch type.
Numbers on the key bracket looks like LO-4907.
He said he thought it was made around 1931 or 1932. It is in excellent condition in original case. Does anyone have any idea of its value

Re: old Gibson guitar

free online appraisals are often worth what you pay for them. this guitar is worth roughly $2000. it could be worth considerably more so i would take it to a few of the major vintage dealers for an appraisal. DO NOT rely on the opinion of one dealer. good luck......TC

Re: old Gibson guitar

Thanks

Re: Gibson guitar,j45,plastic back?

is an '87, whats it worth?

Re: old Gibson guitar

well, look at ebay....There are 1940's gibsons that sell for nearly 30,000 dollars, so i am willing to bet that the guitar is worth more than 2000 dolalrs

Re: Enquireing

Hi there, my name is James and resently I was given a Gibson by an old friend. Ive done a bit of research but cant find much information about this model. It's a model called "The Ripper", it's a bass and made in 1980 so not that old. It's been customised when bought in Hong Kong and I was Just wondering if you know anymore about it or know of a site I could find a little bit more about it. Anything you know would be much appreciated. thanks

Hendrix was shit and Vai is a wanker

Re: Hendrix was shit and Vai is a wanker

dear bob,
it's a good thing you have your nob....TC

Re: Hendrix was shit and Vai is a wanker

dear Bob and TC

what an amusing joke. For a moment I thought I was not alone in thinking Hendrix and Vai were overrated.

love, Chantelle.

Re: Hendrix was shit and Vai is a wanker

: dear bob,
: it's a good thing you have your nob....TC

DA Bob,
Hendrix got his sound with a Marshall amp
an Echoplex and a Strat. How much cash
have you invested in toys to copy his
greatness? Just when you think you know
it all you stop learning. I've been learning
to play the guitar for 31 years.
