Beginner Gutiar (how long to learn to play a song?)

I just started playing gutiar 2 weeks ago want to play jazz, getting lessons. My teacher gave me 3 cords C, G & D, plus 3 jazz cords C, G7 & D, plus natrual notes on strings E & A. After 1 week of this I could play natrual note good and play each cord indivudally but not switch between them and barly finger the jazz cords. When I went back I felt I should have been able do all of this. I know everyone is diffrent but about how long does it take to learn to switch between 3 cord without missing a beat? This is really frustrating.

can someone who has a dimarzio x2n describe it for me?

i'm thinking of getting one for the bridge position of my ibanez rg550.

Re: can someone who has a dimarzio x2n describe it for me?

This is one of the hottest passive pickups you can get. I had one in a Fender Strat a long time ago (wish I had kept it too) wired to a switch that would split the coils. This pickup doesn't clean up well and has a very cutting high end to it (that can be both good and bad depending on the person). You're amp will have a lot of say about this as well. If you're playing Metal, the X2N or Superdistortion is the way to go.

: i'm thinking of getting one for the bridge position of my ibanez rg550.

Re: can someone who has a dimarzio x2n describe it for me?

This was long ago, but i have one. It is REALLY high output, like, if u strum hard on your clean channel, it will distort, the harmonics r very easy to sound, they jump right out at u. It's just a very hot sounding pickup, i use it with a dimarzio breed in the neck, it's great. But the X2N just has a high threshold really, it can pick up higher and lower frequencies than other pickups.

are tex-mex pickups better?

are tex-mex pickups better than normal fender pickups?Why?

Re: are tex-mex pickups better?

I'm no professional by any means, but I really like my tex mex pickups in my california strat. I had the oportunity to try the tex mex pickups against the texas specials, in the same guitar. the texas specials were definatly stronger, better high gain, but the flavor of the tex mex is what I like, subdude, warm, and the best blues tone I have tried, I have a broder range of tones below the fully distorted level which gives me a overdriven sound rather than all out distortion. 2 million guitar players will have 2million different tastes in tone, but I like them.

Re: are tex-mex pickups better?

: are tex-mex pickups better than normal fender pickups?Why? Well, Tex-Mex pickups are slighthly overwound (as were most 50's and 60's pickups, in comparison to modern standards). That extra wiring makes them "hotter" pickups, more responsive and having a better noise/signal ratio. Granted they are passive single-coil type, and they will still produce a good amount of typical hum ... to avoid that, you will have to try Fender "Noiseless" pickups that are not hotter but simply better shielded, or EMG's active pickup system (though these don't suit every type of music, they are the best for gilmour-type solos...). I personnally try to minimize the hum (often using mid-settings between pickups), but a small amount is fine and can even at times bring an organic quality to the sound (as opposed to sterile). I use Tex-Mex pickups cause my axe came factory-equipped with them (mexican Nashville Deluxe Telecaster) and because I like both this instrument and its voice. And to answer your question: YES, I consider them to be better than standard pickups.

Floyd Rose

I just got an Ibanez FGM400 - I have no idea how to set up the Floyd Rose, let alone change the strings. Is there a website out there with instructions ?
Thanks

Re: Floyd Rose

one important thing to remeber is that when your changing the strings you want to cahnge them one at a time and to never take them all off, take off one string, put it on, ***TUNE IT*** then take off the 2nd string and repeat this, if the bridge starts to stick out from the guitar or sticks in, you need to take the back cover off and there should be screws that go in your guitar *pointing towards the neck* and u just need to adjsut them by tightning them to get ur bridge center with ur guitar, hope this helped

fender frontman vs. crate gx-15

im looking to buy a practice amp and i cant decide between the fender frontman and crate gx-15. both are the same price. im looking for a clean overdriven sound with raunchy distortion

Re: fender frontman vs. crate gx-15

: im looking to buy a practice amp and i cant decide between the fender frontman and crate gx-15. both are the same price. im looking for a clean overdriven sound with raunchy distortion

I would go with the Fender. I know the crate will sound weak, I have tried them before. A little trick I learned with practice amps is to use headphones so that you bypass the cheap speaker they use in them.

Re: fender frontman vs. crate gx-15

I have a Crate Gx-15, I havent been playing long but, it works fine for me,you can get some good distortion from it ( well at least I do)

Floyd Rose advise PLZ READ!

I bought a 7-string washburn a couple months ago and i have noticed for some time that on the floyd rose were the whammy bar goes the screwing on the floyd rose is saw'ed off, now i have no clue why this is but the peice that sticks out that u put the whammy bar in half the part is sawed off, is it because the whammy bar couldnt fit and they saw'ed a part of it off? Im wondering because when u turn the whammy bar *180 degrees* as im turning it it gets harder to turn at a certain point and i know its because of this, now i want to know how much 7 string floyd rose's are and are they easiy to replace

If it does not affect the playability I would not mess with it. Just be careful when you buy the next one.

EXCUSE ME! I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT SIGN THE WORD "FLOYD"
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

RE-CONEING SPEAKERS

A FRIEND GAVE ME 2 15INCH ALTEC SPEAKERS, STILL IN THE BOX. HE SAID THEY DIDNT WORK, THEY NEEDED TO BE RECONED, ARE ALTEC GOOD SPEAKERS, IS IT EXSPENSIVE TO RECONE. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THEM BY THE LOOKS OF THEM, IUSE PEAVY SCORPIONS IN MY CABINET, SO I DONT NEED THEM< BUT IF ITS WORTH IT ILL HAVE THEM FIXED. APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE.

Re: RE-CONEING SPEAKERS

Re: RE-CONEING SPEAKERS

Gretch Acoustic - If anyone has ever seen a Gretch acoustic, please read this!! :^)

I bought a Gretch Acoustic about five years ago (I was told it was a 1961 when I bought it). It's a "jimmy rodgers singing guitar". I can't find any proof that Gretch ever even made acoustic guitars (except for the fact that I've got one of coarse...). I've got the serial number - can anyone help me find info on this guitar? Or at least show me a picture of another Gretch acoustic? Email me please...

Re: Gretch Acoustic - If anyone has ever seen a Gretch acoustic, please read this!! :^)

I've got a Dorado by Gretch 12 string acoustic which actually I'm trying to sell.

Re: Gretch Acoustic - If anyone has ever seen a Gretch acoustic, please read this!! :^)

i saw a Gretch tenor acoustic guitar in a local music shop for like 209.00 it was nice so id imagined that they were mass produced to be priced so low

Re: Gretch Acoustic - If anyone has ever seen a Gretch acoustic, please read this!! :^)

i played one at guitar center today, it was okay

Re: Gretch Acoustic - If anyone has ever seen a Gretch acoustic, please read this!! :^)

I also have a Gretch Dorado. I don't know the year it was made. I am thinking of selling it, though, and I would like to know what the market price is.
