Guitar Lessons in London

Hi I wouls love to be taught how to play the guitar, I look forward to hearing from you.

Martin guitar

I have a Martin D 12-20, serial #295215. Obviously a 12 string. It is something I will never get rid of, because It belonged to my father, not to mention I'm not an idiot.
According to the serial number, It was made in 1972. I verified this via Martin's web site. I could not, however, get any other info on this particular model. I'm just curious about it's unique headstock design and what it was worth then and now. Any info is appreciated.

Bucks Fizz

Does anyone know the Guitar tabulatures for 'If you cant stand the heat' ive been peicing it together in my house all over the weekend and I cant get the final chords quite right. Ive read in other fizz forums that they mainly relied on a standard open G in the verse and followed that into an open B with a slight streak of F. I havnt quite been able to replicate 'that sound' though through my advanced eletrical computer equipment in my den where I keep my Rats. Someone please help me or just supply me with Nichola Martin's address (shes the one who produced them in the height of their Eurovision fame and worked on their heavier titles).

Thanx in advance :)

Quick (possibly stupid) question about Roland JC 120H

Do I plug two speaker cables into the back of the head to the cab?
There are two separate L and R jacks in the back of the head and the two jacks on the back of the cabinet are labeled L and R.
Thanks!

Re: Quick (possibly stupid) question about Roland JC 120H

my guess is that your amp has a stereo chorus effect built in, L and R would obviuosly give you the stereo effect, i would plug them both in, i think that is a transistor amp too so its not that much of an issue with an impedence mismatch.

Yes, actually there are 4 speaker jacks on the amp. 2 left and 2 right. You can run up to 4 cab's if you wanna.

This was probably answered a long time ago.

floyd rose locking trem setup

i'm new to the floyd rose, and shall be acquiring an instrument with one within a few days. naturally i need to know how to use it properly and there is a narking question i have before venturing to use it.

the question is, way back in the 60's (i'm an old guy) when i had my first fender strat, they used to have slots for the strings on the machines instead of holes. there was, however, a hole drilled dead center on the machine shaft end, so you had to cut the extra length off the string first, dip it into the hole and then around the slot, and finally wind it around the axle of the machine. i'm sure you know about these.

after ruining 2 or 3 sets of strings (!!) i finally realized that clipping the end off causing the winding of the string to unwind, thus causing the wound strings to completely lose their sound and zing, and become completely dead as per an old, worn-out used string. i solved that by putting a right-angle bend in the string first with my pliers before clipping it (or not clipping it at all).

the question therefore is: with the locking floyd rose trem, it's recommended to clip the ball off the string first before fitting it. how come this doesn't cause the winding to loosen and ruin the string as per my early experiences? or does it? (i don't see anywhere where it's warned to fit the string into the trem's "vise" first and then clip the ball off afterwards, if indeed it is at all possible to do so; it's always advised to clip the ball off first).

can anyone kindly help?

to much feed back!

I've been trying to elinmate feedback back through my rig and nothing seems to work hears the deal my rig is a Crete gx90 half stack and I using a korg toneworks muti effect processor and for distortion I use a boss metal zone all cables are monster instrument cables from the guitar to the korg and from the korg to the amp it's a monster speaker cable , but every time I turn on the distortion I get feedback is there a way to eliminate this !

Re: to much feed back!

try the noise reduction on your korg processor.put it to maximum and see if you still have that problem.boss pedal is doing that to you.the pedal creates that feedback and if you combine the distorsion with an effect from the processor then the sound flyes out of your guitar.so i suggest to use your noise reduction way up and see how it goes.or buy an noise suppressor for your boss!

Re: to much feed back!

Probably,what's happening is the volume of the Korg unit is too high.Also,at live volumes,your dist level may be too high.I Usually keep the dist. level at 8 or 9 O"clock.
Good Luck

feedback... .... the noise suppressor by boss will get rid or the hiss, not feedback. try a feedbac
