Soungear Ibanez setup

Hi,
I have a Soungear Ibanez 5 strings, and I want to invert the strings for left handed. How can I do the setup?
Thanks a lot!
Abel

Have a luthier do it.

You'll need to install a new nut, slotted for the reverse string setup, and the bridge saddles will need to be reversed, and intonated.

Chords

Is there ANYONE out there that can chord the song "I Got a Line On You" by the band Spirit? I've checked out every music web site on earth and cannot find the chords for this song anywhere.

Re: Chords

B, D slide up to E
B, E slide down to D is the basic verse pattern

The chorus is G, A, B

Very simple chords, just the synchopation is a bitch to play and sing at the same time.

Hearing impaired Guitarist

I wear hearing aids. When the rest of the orchestra is playing I must turn the aids down (because the horns and drums just go right through me). As a result, I cannot hear my amp properly. Is there some kind of adjustable earphones I could wear over top of my aids. Would the earphones be plugged into the pre-amp? I am a jazz musician.

Someone have suggestion or tricks for Go direct to PA with Boss GT 6? I cant' obtain a decent overdrive-distortion sound!Thank you!

Guitar Strings

Does any body know the formula for calculating even tension string gauges for a 25.5 inch neck? I belive the chart is set up for different tensions based on lbs as the unit of measure.

83 Telecaster Squier, not Fender, made in Japan?

Is a 1983 Squier Telecaster a collectible guitar, just because it is manufactured in Japan?

: Is a 1983 Squier Telecaster a collectible guitar, just because it is manufactured in Japan?

Re: 83 Telecaster Squier, not Fender, made in Japan?

Here's my reply-(should not do this when busy on a Monday!)
Time will tell, right now an 83-84 Squire Tele if stock will go for about $300-350, not a collector's item price, but there are only so many of them of course. We'll see. BTW, you wouldn't happen to know if the stock pup selecter was the "barrel" or "top hat" style?

Re: 83 Telecaster Squier, pup switch

I just got across the Squier on ebay, the owner thought the Tele to be something rare already!! I backed off from the auction and killed the bookmark, so no idea about the pup switch, sorry.

Solutions to fingerstyle rehab post neck surgery

I'm wondering if there are any fingerstyle guitar players out there who have experienced restricted facility of motion on the fingerpicking hand, most notably the middle finger, due to a herniated disc in the neck or symptoms of arthritis. Any suggestions and/or exercises for rehab would be appreciated. I did have neck surgery to correct the problem but my playing has not returned to normal before the symptoms appeared.
Signed,
A frustrated fingerstylest

marshall jcm 600 cutting out

I am having a problem with my amp cutting out on my. Power drops about 98%, faint sounds (louder with gain channel), turning it on/of repeatedly sometimes fixes it, problem occurs seemingly random. Anyone experience this problem before?

a good site for info is http://www.freespace.virgin.net/john.blackman4/index.htm - It gives good info plus a download link for the original fender jap' manual. I've had a 'contemporary' model for 8 years and would never sell it, it's that good.

I did not write the original question, But I also have a strat like this I just picked up. The manufacture date is 1986. Is yours with black headstock and rosewood fingerboard? A floating type Fender bridge? It is cool, but the one I got is rough and I am going to begin work on it and am trying to find some original fender brochure type pictures to see how it was originaly shipped.

best strings?

Re: best strings?

my favorite strings are cheap ones

: have an EPIPHONE ACCUSTIC GUITAR AND IM WONDERING WHAT BRAND NAME OR BEST STRINGS I COULD GET TO PUT ON?

Re: best strings?

Right there are lot of good strings, firs you have to know whatkind of bridge you have it for the tension of the strings and the specific kind of string for example you cant put steel strings to a nylon guitar its sure that the bridge dont suport the tension of the steel ones so thats the first point the second is the large of your freetboard its better to put on string of the perfect large this is for not have to cut the string and have any risk irregularity in the sound, there we have youre fingers and the confortability of your hands try to look for a string that fits good to you not too hard and too thin.

well for last ive used Daddario string in my guitars for electric and acoustics this are a grat company that manofacture only strings and are masters in that every string that the do are great, look for some earny ball its difficult to find one of those but are great too....

Want to start playing-what is a good guitar/lessons?

I really want to learn how to play the electic guitar just for the fun of it...I love music a lot and would love to play my favorite songs and make up some of my own...anyways anyone have suggestions for a good yet cheap guitar/amp to start on?...as well as videos or books to self teach..I simply do not have time to do private lessons and would rather go at my own pace. Aria STG003 Electric Guitar RRP £119
Peavey Blazer Amp RRP £99
I find this deal on a website they through in some chords a case and a stand if you buy both the guitar and amp..is this good or should I consider something else...thanks.

Re: Want to start playing-what is a good guitar/lessons?

Peavey is a good make of amp. Aria is a good make of guitar.

I personally would go for something like a squire telecaster to start with. Check out secondhand guitars and amps - they're usually the best buys.

A telecaster has a nice feel to it, the frets are neither too close together nor too far apart, and is an easy guitar to play.

I find instructional video's are made by pompous idiots with their heads too far up their own asses - i've yet to see one that is actually instructional.

Get yourself some '3 chord songbooks' and take a few lessons if you can - just to get into the basic chords, and to make you persevere past mastering your first barre chord - after that it becomes easier!

If you get an electric guitar, you may find your fingers bleed from the strings (the thinest one's are like cheesewire!). Vinegar helps (your fingers, not the strings!) - or urine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to learn how to play my new guitar

I really want to learn how to play the acoustic guitar, yet I have no experience with reading music or anything else having to do with guitars for that matter. If anyone has any suggestions on how to start or a good book that will help me, please leave something on here, or e-mail me at bballgal_32@hotmail.com
