Jerry,

My name is Rick Smith, I live in Peru, IN. I'm looking for a band or a bass player that would be interested in starting one up. I've been playing covers for about 20 years as lead vocalist / guitarist. I have a large repertoire of material. I'm looking to make some extra cash on the weekends. I've moved to Indiana from PA, recently because of a new engineering job. I had to quit my band ("Switch" - see switchrocks.net website)and I'm really wanting to play again. Would you be interested? Or is the distance too much? Give me a call at 765-689-9149.

Thanks,

Rick Smith

Volume of finished cd - BR8

Hi everyone, thanks for reading
I am recording classical guitar through a mic with my BR8 and when I put it through the computer via the line-in in MMJB, the volume has to be turned up full volume to hear it. Does anyone know how to increase the volume of the finished product?
Thanks again!

Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Problem

Hi I own a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe but recently it's started to make a loud popping noise when flicking between the clean and dirty channels. Any ideas on what this is and can it be fixed?

Re: Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Problem

Remove the tubs and switch, if you don't hear the pop then it's the tubes or a loose tube connection, if you do then it's either the switch or caps

Guitar Newbie, buying Les Paul or Strat Copy

Having played Violoncello as a kid (boring stuff), I am really into learning to play guitar as a grown-up. Being indecisive between a Epiphone Les Paul model and a Fender Mexico (both seem good value for money to me), I need help: which guitar is easier to play, which one gives more sound opportunities. My favourite style playing would be the kind of slide Lowell George and Duane Allmann played. The second tip I need is about the way of learning: what would be a sound way to learn basics but to be able to play reasonable stuff after a while (I don't refer to shortcuts, learning to do something good takes its time).
Thank You for Your help. Michael

Re: Guitar Newbie, buying Les Paul or Strat Copy

What kind of fender mexico ?? The scale/radius of an LP is generally 'easier' for beginners.

Re: Guitar Newbie, buying Les Paul or Strat Copy

As a traditionalist I'd choose a Stratocaster model which differs soundwise obviously from an LP. At the end of the day I'd prefer the singing sound of an LP, which the Epiphone model produces almost as good as the Gibson original. Good choice?

Re: Guitar Newbie, buying Les Paul or Strat Copy

Both are good choices because they are the most common guitars out there so they will sound like alot of the music you know, best to get one of each down the road and don't forget a telecaster too :) !!!

Epis are ok, you usually have to try a few to get a good one and then change out the pups, but still cheaper than a gibson, just make sure you really check it out before buying.

Re: Guitar Newbie, how to pick an Epiphone LP

How do I pick a good Epi from a not so good one, apart from the picks? Do colours and finish have any effect on the performance?
And then, what is a reasonable way to learn to play that damn thing?

Re: Guitar Newbie, how to pick an Epiphone LP

To pick a 'good' one first check all the 'mechanical/cosmetic' aspects for flaws, there are many sites with good info, check harmony central reviews of the models you plan to buy as many flaws will be pointed out there and give you an idea of the most common ones (for that model) to look, the second part 'feel/tone' is hard to describe, playing 2 guitars of the same model you will feel/hear differnces, although alot will be due to the fact that they will have slightly differnt setups, you can feel a differnces in the vibration of the body/neck, and fretboard. If you are new alot of these things won't make a differnce so just look for a well constructed guitar (no visible flaws, good neck, nut, tuners, etc) or buy a used one and when you get better then start looking for a better instrument.

Check out harmonycentral.com reviews and good luck.

: The Berklee guitar method is good for adults

My humble suggestion is to not fork out on a new guitar, necessarily. Second hand is often the way to go. Got a very sound Samick Les Paul copy(black) for my son for $200 recently. Beautiful action, neck rosewood...needed judicious cleaning with lemon oil. But, be careful, there's a lot of cheap quality stuff floating around that looks OK cosmetically, alongside some very good quality cheap stuff as well. Samick are the biggest guitar maker in the world and make some very good stuff under their own name, as well as OEM'ing for some very famous and venerable names. The diff is that you won't pay a premium for the Samick name. Bought a new solid wood Tele copy Samick, sunburst for $350 Aus. Got the rather ordinary pickups canged to Dimarzio twang kings, and had a Gotoh bridge fitted with through-the-body stringing. I defy any so-called expert with their eyes shut to tell me it isn't an A-grade Fender Tele. What I'm trying to say is to try and get past BRAND...it's the sound that counts.

Acoustic sounds

I have a boss gt-3, I been trying to make the acoustic patches sound a little louder than other patches, for some reason it doesn't work. I played around with the output knob in the back of the pedal, it is all the way up. Anybody knows how to play around with this thing? Thanks

Guitar Rig setup - rocking blues,KWS,SRV, etc

I recently have acquired a PedalPad MPS-1(w/ GeorgeL's patch cables) that has multiple setup options for mono,stero,mult signal chains, effects loop and conditioned pwr for 10 effects. I have several Roger Mayer effects(Octavia & Voodoo Vibe) an HOA Rumble Mod & Rust Driver, A FD-2(I am going back an forth btwn this and the Rumble Mod), Bad Horsie Wah, MXR Phase 90 and a couple other various effects that I really don't use much, nor plan to. Axes=LP Custom, Custom Strat(not Fender) and FireBird. I currently have a Fender Blues Jr that I love(I don't play large venues, local stuff-clubs etc.)
Ultimately, I want to acquire a 2nd Blues Jr and run them in Stereo. I have heard this type setup at blues clubs in BOS and have been very impressed. I have yet to set the entire rig up and was hoping to get some feedback to potentially help me avoid some head/heart aches in the setup process and make the most of my gear! Any suggestions/comments would be gr8ly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!

'58 Silvertone

I bought a '58 Silvertone acoustic on the weekend. It is an archtop with f holes. I paid $85 Canadian for it. Can anybody tell me what a guitar like this is worth?

Mesa Boogie Question

What is the difference between a MB 50 caliber and a 50 caliber plus?

Relatively minor

The Plus model comes with 6l6 power tubes instead of EL34's. Either way, it's a great amp, I have two of the 50-cal + models.

Classical Guitarist background

Is anyone out there familiar with Dr. Justin Miller who does classical-guitar shows on the Holland-America line? Is he truly a former psychiatrist or is he a doctor of music?

Re: Classical Guitarist background

He's not a doctor of music.

Re: Classical Guitarist background

Just thought you'd like to know... my degrees include a B.A. from Yale and master's and doctoral degrees from the University of Chicago. No, I'm not (and never was) an M.D. My clinical work was all in psychology and academic work in the fields of family therapy and psychology of religion. But I haven't practised since '83 or taught grad school since '86... just picked.

Re: Classical Guitarist background

Am curious also. His web site message is filled with changes.

Re: Classical Guitarist background

Did you see jstep.tripod.com mentioning Justin Miller?
I saw your question again on web by adding Holland American kines with Miller name. He claimed to be married again this Christmas time. Did you contact the cruise line? I bought a CD and the website has gone through a few name changes and appears to be "no-more." Maybe the marriage &/or child support pn the high seas?

Re: Classical Guitarist background

Well, I see you on Yahoo, too. Let us know if you find him. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year in the meantime.

Re: Classical Guitarist background

I had the extreme pleasure of attending 2 of Dr. Justin
Miller's appearances on the Holland America line this past April on a Hawaiian cruise. He was a psychiatrist
in NY and gave it up for his first love which is the classical guitar. He is an excellent guitarist plus being a most entertaining racontuer. He has written a book that deals with the circumstances under which certain songs were composed. I cannot remember the name of it, but would buy it in a second if I could find it. Would you have any info on this? I would surely appreciate any help you can give me in finding it.
