Re: Silicone and guitar

I use plain old Lemon Pledge---works great!!

: I would not, stick to regular guitar polish or even pledge... are you thinking of using armorall ???

: : Hi!
: : I am thinkng of using silicone spray (used for clean autovehicles board) to clear my guitar and make it shiny:)
: : But I've red an article on a site that says "Products containing silicone should not be used".
: : What do you think of that?

Blues guitar players - read this!!

I dont play blues - Im into classical and metal but I found something I thought is so good for playing blues I should tell people about it. Ive been playing the guitar with 4 strings tuned to fifth intervals like the violin - I tune mine to AEBF# ( the low A is the same as the A string on a "normal" guitar - the F# is 2 1/2 steps above the high E on the high E string at the 24th fret - I was using 5 strings tuned to DAEBF# but I like 4 strings for reasons that would take too long to explain here - alot of people use 6 strings tuned CGDAEG - thats called "new standard tuning" - Robert Fripp has been using that for alot of years ) - I like the 4 note per string diatonic scales cuz you can use alternate with inside string changes most of the time, you can still do 3 note patterns with position changing - their hard to play straight up and down the strings but their good for music cuz they make alot of options for fingerings, and I like the 2 note per string arpeggio fingerings cuz I can play them with hammer ons and pull offs. I started thinking maybe blues players would like this alot cuz you get 3 note per string pentatonic scales in each position that are easier to play fast than the 2 note per string fingerings in standard tuning and you can do wide vibrato on the highest string by pulling down instead of pushing up if you use only 4 or 5 strings and leave the high E place empty cuz you can use 4 strings and get almost as many notes as the guitar usually has or you can use 5 strings and have more notes than the guitar usually has. I like that cuz I can imitate a violin more with easy vibrato on every note - the violin is my favorite instrument - so its like a toy violin thats easier to play fast! I play 24 fret guitars so I can also tune that to EBF#C# and I have all of the same notes a fender stratocaster has if I play with other people. Its not as good for large chords though ( ? - I guess its not good for chords - I havent tried to play chords that way much cuz I dont usually play chords ) - not everyone would like it. And some keys are easier to play in than others ( like the violin ). Those are the only 2 "bad" things I know of about it right now.

Oops - check this out -

I thought its hard to play chords that way and then I found this - http://www.geocities.com/xulfrepus/folder/guitar.html
- on the top right theres a place to choose many different tunings and they have CGDAEG ( new standard tuning ) and you can choose many different chords, keys, and positions.

Sperzel tuning keys

Has there been anyone that once they installed these tuning keys and they were locking style didn't actually lock, or how do I use them correctly

"Comfortably Numb" from "THE WALL" TAB for Gilmour's solo

I wanto to learn Gilmour's solo from Comfortably Numb.
Usually I don't like to copy other guitarists' solos note for note but certain songs, such as this one and others e.g. Stairway to heaven, Honky Tonk Women seem to lose something if the guy covering it does his own solo even if the new solo is hot and blistering and better that the original. I'd like to find out what setup Gilmore used (amps/guitar/pups/pedals etc) when he recorded it so I can get as close as possible to that spine tingleing tone he achieves.
I'd appreciate it if someone could put me onto a site which has this info.
Thanks.

Re: "Comfortably Numb" from "THE WALL" TAB for Gilmour's solo

Dude if u ever get that info be sure to give it to me that solo fu**in rocks man!

my guitar got cold and now it buzzes

Hi! I play a block of wood also known as a Squier Strat, and I left it in the car last week (it wouldn't fit on the plane). It was kinda cold while I was gone. Now I'm back, and the strings are very buzzy. What happened? Also, what do I need to do to fix it? Would appreciate your help, thanks!

mike

Re: my guitar got cold and now it buzzes

i would guess the neck has moved- do the strings touch the fretboard more than they used to do? this would cause them to buzz in the same way that if you hit the bass strings hard.
i would think you need to adjust the truss rod in the back of the guitar- at the end by tuning pegs. i'm not too sure about this- take it to your local guitar shop or get a friend to help...
its amazing how much damage heat or coldness can do to guitars! G

the neck needs adjustment I think

I have been gone for six months and I forgot to take the strings off my guitar. Now the strings are close to the frets at the top of the neck and about half an inch off the frets closer to the body of my guitar. It is an Ovation. How can I fix this. Will oiling the neck and slowly adjusting the allen rod in the neck work?

Re: my guitar got cold and now it buzzes

that was the most pointless responce i have ever heard

why has this site become so boring

you are all crap, you should all get a sense of humour,you all should burn your guitars (cos you all cant play them)and worship the true god of guitar "ME".
love Bob. ps. is there any rock chicks out there, who need some "BOBBY LOVIN" cos i am even better at making love than i am on the guitar.

Because of wankers like You!!!

About the only thing you're good at is pullin' your pood ..... at least most who take part in this forum have a genuine interest in the guitar - even if they're not up to "your" standard. It's become boring because of self-opinionated shit-heads like you, who need to can everything, while inflating their own feeble egos. Get a life, buddy!

Don't waste your breath

Bob probably can't pick his nose without help, let alone a guitar. Besides, if he were any good at ANYTHING other than bad mouthing every one that posts here and trying to cover his obviously deeply rooted feelings of inadequacy, he probably wouldn't have had so much time to develop his talents as an ASS HOLE!! Hey Bob, TAKE YOUR PROZAC!!!!

Re: Don't waste your breath

As an amateur psychiatrist of some standing, I am qualified to state that what we have here is a classic case of "small penis syndrome" .... :-)
The annoying thing about cretins like Bob is that they have nothing constructive to contribute to the world. It's in the same league as those people who complain about certain TV programs, when there is always the option of changing channels. So if you don't like the content of this forum, Bob, tune out and resume playing with your willie ...

Re: Don't waste your breath

oooooo, an AMATEUR OF SOME STANDING,you dont get paid for your amateur opinions, unlike your mother who gets paid for being a professional. love Bob

Re: Don't waste your breath

i dont believe it, another shrink, do you pretend that you are something you are not also (like dave), your mother gave birth to the biggest asshole around these parts. love Bob

don't waste your breath on bobby

hey bob-
stop the swearing your obviously a bit insecure and worried that your shredding isn't up to our standards.
from now on i recommend that noone talks to this moron but spends their time shreddin instead. G

Re: Because of wankers like You!!!

finally, someone who admits that this site is boring, i suppose boring people would not reply to a boring post eh! johhno

Re: why has this site become so boring

Yeah, whatever. You're pretty boring yourself.

Re: why has this site become so boring

nice reply, mr interesting. love Bob

Re: why has this site become so boring

What happened Bob ? You've toned it down a bit, but you're still a moron anyway. You are crap.
