Re: Fender Serial Number Question

: I am interested in purchased a used Fender Strat serial number S958046. I was wondering what year it is and how much i should pay for it in US dollars.Tx

Later model gibson electric?

My later model (made in USA) Gibson electric guitar has the serial #94010025. Can someone tell me what model this is and what year it was made?
I also have a Gibson acoustic 'student model' with the serial #49758 which I believe was made in 1962. Is that correct and is there a model number for that guitar?
Thanks, Jim

Is yours an acoustic? I have a Hayashi 'Gibson Dove' style acoustic, nice guitar with spruce top, real mother of pearl fret board inlays and unusual Silky Oak (also known as Lacewood) back and sides. There is a Japanese guitar maker called Nabuaki Hayashi who currently produces avant garde shaped electrics under the name Atlansia and I wonder whether this is the same Hayashi? The guitar I have has the word "Mountain" inlaid in the headstock and "Mountain Folk, Made by Hayashi" stamped on the inside back brace. The serial number is 508033 and was bought in new in Adelaide, Australia in the late 70s. I'd like to find out a bit more info about these guitars too!

Ibanez Custom Agent

Anybody have one of these guitars they are willing to sell? Please Email. Thanks For Your Time.

Re: Ibanez Custom Agent

: Anybody have one of these guitars they are willing to sell? Please Email. Thanks For Your Time.

One just sold on e-bay for $ 877.
I have a Memphis (which is Ibanez) built in the Ibanez plant and it is exactly the same except it lacks the design below the stop tail and it says
Memphis instead of Ibanez. The inlays , the mandolin headstock ,ect are the same.
It sounds fabulous and is the easiest playing guitar I own. But...... I'm not selling.
Keep a watch on e-bay, you can set e-bay to e-mail
you if one becomes listed.

Asperger syndrome & sound

The best bass player in the world actually is autistic.
A demo of his incredible chops is available at:
http://www.q-tuner.com

Look for Aspie!!

Any idea what my Guild D44-M is worth, 1970's?

The D44-M is all maple, top sides and back. Purchased new, one owner, well mantained and original, with plush hard case. Just curious what it's worth these days. I paid under $600 for it then. Any ideas?

autistic guy plays incredible

I downloaded a song (96 Khz) at http://www.q-tuner.com/download.shtml which is created by an autistic guy on a bass. The song is ment to be a demo for the pick-ups they sell that that site.

Check it out, really strange...

teaching your self?

i want to teach myself how to play guitar, i mean loud distorted stuff! who in this forum has taught themselves how to play guitar, is it hard, and how long did it take to learn.

thanks,
shane

Re: teaching your self?

I did, it takes years of parctice to get 'good', but right off you should be able to play some stuff to keep you interested.

Re: teaching your self?

heya ,
i play for about a year now , got me a Ibanez Rg 2570 Prestige . I listen to Metal mostly (everything except Nu ). I find learning guitar is pretty hard in a way because it indeed takes years and progress is very slow (unless you're a natural talent probably).
But i find it very interesting and i practice everyday. I have taken some lessons from a friend of mine who's playing for 20 years now and i suggest you do thesame if possible , you really learn a lot more and you get a bigger understanding of music theory than when you have to figure everything out by yourself. i took about 15 lessons but now i'm back on my own , since i don't have the time to go to the lessons. I got some friend who play in a band (Viggen =>80's Thrash Metal =>http://users.pandora.be/paul.ulrix) and seeing how they play makes you want to run home ,pick-up your guitar and start practicing :)
My advice is : practice as much as you can and if it doesn't work right away keep trying , eventually you'll get the hang of it . It's constantly pushing yourself further and further but in the end it's well worth it (at least that's the way i experience it)

Re: teaching your self?

Tabs at first are helpful but eventually you want to be able to learn songs by ear.

Tabs can help you learn all the little techniques like hammer ons,pull offs,slides,trills,tapping etc

Learn the major scale and before long you'll be able to pick songs up by ear

chords are built using the major scale on each degree (or note) of the scale and then you take every other note in the scale to make 3 note chords,4 note chords,and up to 5,6 and 7 note chords.The 3 and 4 note chords are the most common.Three note chords are called triads and come in four main varieties(maj,min,diminished and augmented).4 note chords are called seventh chords(maj7,m7,and 7...a "7" by itself means it's a "dominant 7th" chord).Rock and pop and metal and punk use mostly triads and power chords.Jazz uses mostly seventh chords.Country uses mostly major chords.

guitar.com is a racist,sexist piece of shit of a site

Re: teaching your self?

I'm self taught. I picked up on most of the "tricks"
of playing guitar by listening to something and trying to duplicate that sound (hammer, vibrato, pull offs etc) I also think tabs are a big help to begin with. Eventually i moved into playing by ear, but tabs are a good resource for payin a song if you can't read music like me. It didnt tke me much time to learn because i learned fast but learning and being "good" are two diffrent things. Sorry ive rambled on way to long.

I began teaching myself electric guitar, and then took classical lessons. If you find yourself struggling and losing interest (which can happen in the beginning) taking lessons can spur you on. Tabs are indeed the best way to learn new tricks, licks and riffs etc.

Practice is the only way to get good - lots of it. If it doesn't sound right, play it again and again till it does!

how do imake up a good solos

i play lots of heavey metal musice but i have never been able to make up a solo. even it i try it sounds like crap so if you could help me that would be great

Re: how do imake up a good solos

Listen to some of your favorite bands or muscians and get a feel for how they go go into a solo, build it up to a climax and then work it back down. The most important thing is PLAY From Your Heart

Re: how do imake up a good solos

: i play lots of heavey metal musice but i have never been able to make up a solo. even it i try it sounds like crap so if you could help me that would be great

Just take the notes in the chords and play them on the beats and then you can play any notes not in the chords,sometimes not even in the scale,between beats.
Make melodies and string them together.Then listen to your favorite solos to hear how they are structured.Listen for how they enter at the beginning of the solo and how it develops from there into some kind of build up.Listen for a beginning a middle and an end.

and remember guitar.com sucks fuckin balls dude
