      : Has anyone bought anything from http://www.guitarstop.com? They have some great prices, but I am a little hesitant about buying a guitar over the net. Also I am looking at the Strat ’69 reissue with the tweed case, can it be sent to the U.K. or I’ll get a person in the U.S to send it to me…THANKS

      best thing about it is the sound..nice power sounding humbuckers but also clean and ringy for chords..nice resonance and timbre on the chord stuff but can also drive and give feedback using the mt-2 pedal..mine had small imperfection on neck bracing but didnt affect playability
      12th fret action close maybe 1/16 ..the nut however was a little high..

      tobacco sunburst is very attractive hard to best this one for 60..compared it to a DeArmond Starfire and chose the Echotone because of the gutsier more colorful sound..the duncan designed pickups are a big plus

      I bought one in the mid 90’s (don’t remember exactly), and all that I can say is that it is a great guitar for the price. Really nice guitar (bird-eye maple top, mahogany body), semi-hollow, really comfortable, and sounds really good. I’m not a pro, but I’m sure I don’t need a better guitar for the moment.

      : Help!
      some metal heads maybe turned off by the twang, but when it comes to a strong, clear lead.
      you can’t beat a Telecaster. So in the realm of the guitar, the tele may not
      be the very best, but it is certainly up there.

      Hi, I play a Starfield guitar. It’s an Altair SJ Trad. It was made in Japan, has a solid mahogony body with a bolt on maple neck. It has 2 single coil pickups with a humbucker at the bridge. It has a transparent red finish, similar to a Gibson cherry red. I bought it in 1993 and it has been fantastic. The pickups are particularly brilliant with a big range of tones. I’m surprised Starfields never really caught on, the only proffesional musician I’ve seen playing them is Donald Kinsey from The Kinsey Report.

      Anyone know any more?

      Did you ever find a Fender HM strat? I have one for sale on Ebay right now – it is a Japanese, but in very good condition (except for a 1" chip on the body). I am the original owner and have had it since around ’93ish when I bought it brand new.

      : I have worked with the Zoom GFX8. There is a seamless effect that will accomplish this.

      : From what I remember, you would have to program the "seamless" effect into the patch that you are going TO and not FROM.

      : You can get the pdf Zoom manual (pdf) online at:

      I have a Roland Re-201 that is presently having some repair work done on it. New transistor and a few other relatively minor things. I bought the unit new in 1975 and it essentially has never been on the road. I always used it for guitar and a few times in a recording situation. It is is excellent shape because I am extremely fussy with my toys. Cleaning etc. Problem I have run into is I cannot find a source for replacement tape which Roland no longer makes. They came in little clear plastic boxes. I tried to find an e-mail address for Roaland U.S. To send a query to them for the purpose of finding out specifically what type of tape they used in there spools. Thought I would make my own. If you have any info on this let me know at the aforementioned e-mail. As far as further info. I loved the unit for over 25 years. They were well constructed and lthough limited in the range of effects for the price you could’nt beat them.

      : I am considering buying either a boss ad-5 or the less expensive ad-3 for use with my Taylor 414. Is anyone familier with these units? Why would I want the more expensive one vs. the ad-3? Also, would this unit work for well for my fiddle as well?

      Hi,
      I have the ad-5 with my Taylor 612c and 614ce. it provides an amazing warmth and infinite tone adjustments with the eq, 2×2 chorus and reverb.

      I play every week at our church and go directly form the ad-5 stereo to the board. I get nothing but outstanding comments form those who hear the tone. It is easy and intuitive to use and with the addition of the guitar "size" adjuster and the "mic distance" adjuster you can get a lot of great sounds that expand your guitar capabilities.

      Add a boss dd-3 dely pedal and you will be very pleased.

      : someone please respond explaining about Korean vs US ovations. Less quality? Bad reputation? Please respond. Is it worth buying a Korean Ovation Celebrity Deluxe.

      I reecxntly bought a new USA built Balladeer from Mars Music. At the time I also looked over the ones made in Korea.
      The cost difference is significant with the USA made ones costing about 00 more. They sound similar but I noted that
      one of the Korean made units had cracks between the neck and figure board. It didn’t hurt the
      sound and was probably only cosmetic, but if you are buying one check it over carefully.
      If you are just playing for fun or as a hobby the Korean made guitars should suit your purpose.
      But if you are planning on playing to audiences I’d spend the addtional for the USA ones.
      You will have more of a selection of finish and styles. No matter what you buy I don’t thnik
      you’ll find a better sounding easier playing guitar. I own three of them.

        The non-USA ones -so I was told- are build -in license- by Takamine guitars. For that sake you wouldn’t buy a bad one anyway (not even for concert purposes) – however, still bought a USA one myself. The difference is indeed hard to hear. Maybe its just a psychological thing to buy a USA built Ovation. Anyway – I enjoy mine for over 9 years already.

      I was wondering why you want tab to learn a solo?, just play what you feel over it and find your own style. Jimi Page is without a doubt one of the greatest guitarists but what makes him brilliant is his oringinal style of his own influences i.e blues folk/country, let his style inspire you and create your "own" wicked style : I was wondernig if anyone has tab for this great Led Zepplin Cd, because the "Black dog" and "Stairway to heaven" solos are better than solos of the released version, "Led Zepplin IV".

      I had the same problem, requiring the Winter 2000 and January 2001 (for a beginner’s Jazz
      series by Dave K). I looked everywhere I could imagine. Finally found that Borders Books in
      the U.S. has an on-line magazine service which still had the issues I was missing. I just received
      them today. The site is at http://www.borders.megamags.com. Service was prompt, cost was at face
      value plus a nominal shipping fee.

      Hope this helps,

      : Players whose instructional videos you should get for right hand technique:Al DiMeola, John Petrucci from Dream Theater, Steve Morse, and Eric Johnson. I recommend using Dunlop Jazz III picks to build up your techinque. I’d stay away from the training picks and get used to using a real pick, and using the same one consistently. Stiff picks are tough to use in the beginning, but with practice you will begin to realize that the stiffness is crucial to making a positive connection with the string when you pick it. E-mail me back with your thoughts.

      I am not into Korn or Limp Cookies, but I play the 7. I started when Vai came out with passion and warfare. I also have 4 6ers, but am selling them because I view the seven string as having a greater dimension and a better feel on the neck. I also like it because you can harmonize in the lower registers. Its just a way to expand your mind and your playing.

I think he uses and overdrive, but should I buy an expenisve amp that has built in distortion, or should i buy a less expensive and amp spend a more of the money on a good pedal? RSVP please!

      Buy a nice guitar and amp. You can purchase lots of good guitars for under 00. Forget the pedals and buy a good amp. Pedals are cheap and you can always get them later. Good luck.

      It is real hard to get 2 great sounds in one (do it all guitar). You have enough money to buy a metal guitar and a strat or check out the Fender Lonestar Strat. Good luck.

      hi, i had a very similar prob and it was all down to the cheap guitar i had bought.
      when i checked the tuning as it stated in the book, i did’nt realise that the strings where actually far to tight so i was playing in a higher scale so to speak. this coupled with a high bridge and top end meant i had to really push hard on the frets causing all the symtoms you have stated.
      it was only when a freind called round and picked it up to play that i found this out, he retuned it and a did’nt have to press half as hard on the strings.
      hope this helps

      Does anyone know how much an original EH Big Muff is worth now. I’ve had mine for about 24 years now and it still makes the occasional appearance out of the gig bag. I’ve also still got an original Screaming Tree treble booster and an LPB 2 (Linear Power Booster). The Electric Mistress gave up the ghost years ago with a failed transformer – never got that fixed and it ended up in bits somewhere !

      : Stevie Ray Vaughn comes to mind. The solos on the songs "Crossfire" or "Tightrope" off his "In Step" CD
      : are still some of my favorites. Check out the band
      : "Dream Theater" too.

      Hey if you want some excellent solo’s to learn check out Mark Knopfler of Dire straits! Or Brian May has some really creative stuff as well. Clapton’s rediscovery of the blues is also a good listen to learn from……

      I’d stay away from Vai/Malmsteen etc. They’re very technical and good players, but in my opinion the best playing comes from within.

      Best Guitars in the world. The only thing you can do to improve them is stick a strat pup in the neck. If you get a good, well balanced brdige pickup (ie, Harmonic Design ’54 special), you would be hard-pressed to find a better lead sound.

Some of the brands I’m looking at are the "Dimazzio blue velvets", "Rio Grande", "Halfbreeds" "Tallboys" pickups…any comments on these pickups in terms of sound flexibility,good combinatios of one or two of these together, testimonials. The objective is to maintain flexibility across most of the music genre, with a need to ensure that tone and separations is maximised especially in a variety of venues eg. outdoor, indoor, dull, bright.

      I own a 6 string Lyle that a friend gave me back in 1971 and it has mellowed beautifully with the years. I use it now for altered tuning, but for years it was my only guitar. As to the price, well, you could probably do a little better, but if it plays well and sounds good and doesn’t have any problems, then I’d say that 00 is not a bad price. I did but a Takamine 12 at a pawn shop for the same price though. Course I might just be a tad sentimental about Lyle guitars, but, I would buy it myself if it did what a guitar should do. whimsmith

      : The pickups are microphonic. You have 2 options: Replace them or have them wax potted. Wax potting is cheaper, especially if you are happy with the sound. Find a repair shop that will do this for you.

      In order to tune to baritone, you’ll need a scale length of at least 27". A strat type guitar will work much better than say a Les Paul type because the les paul is only about 25.5".

      : I’m looking for a tremelo, bigsby-style for a fender telecaster does anybody know where i might find one? does fender make one? please help.
      : thanks
      : big e

      Sorry this is a late follow up but, I just found this site. If you still need a Bigsby for your Tele check allparts.com they have them. They are expensive though, about 35.00 the part # is TP 3640. You’ll also need to change your bridge plate to a flat plate the part # is BP 051 and is about 2.00. You will probably need to change the bridge also. I don’t think the bridge that comes with the Bigsby will work on the bridge plate. You’ll need a bridge with "cups" like on a Jaguar, the part # for the bridge you need is SB 210 about 0.00 I hope this helps. I have a Bigsby on one of my Teles, they actually help in keeping your guitar in tune. I also have a Bigsby B-Bender (also known as a palm pedal) installed on another Tele. These are hard to come by but, if you ever find one don’t pass it up.

      Fender does make one but, they are only available if you have a guitar Master Built. Also check e-bay

      Thank you, I appreciate the feedback (and to the other’s that replied). This, as with everything else I learn about music, brings up more questions. But, I do like the attitude to forget the theory while playing. I just needed someone else out there to say it. Take Care, keep playin!

      -Ben

      : Have you ever seen the circle of 4ths (circle of 5ths if you go the other way around the circle).

      : C
      : F G
      : Bb/A# D
      : Eb/D# A
      : Ab/G# E
      : Db/C# B
      : Gb/F#

      : If you go around clockwise it’s 5ths, counterclockwise is 4ths. The relative minor is 3 clockwise steps around the circle.

      : Furthermore, from a key signature/scale standpoint, as you go clockwise, you’re adding a sharp to the scale, as you go counterclockwise, you’re adding a flat to the scale…to wit: the key signature for C is blank…no sharps, no flats, G is one sharp, D is two sharps, etc. F is one flat, Bb is two flats etc. The sharps and flats meet at Gb/F# which is six flats or six sharps, either way you want to make your eyes burn (that also means that legally, you could use 7 flats to denote the key of B, but while legal, it’s probably immoral).

      : Now, what you’re talking about is another way of speaking of "Modes." I can’t tell you one mode from another, but I do know that in essence, a mode is a scale, for example C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C is C Major, also known as C Lydian (? I think that’s the right mode). There are other modes such as Mixolydian, Aeolian and a bunch of others. If you play C-D-E-F-G-A-Bb-C it makes it a C Mixolydian (? maybe), in actuality of course it’s either an F major that starts and stops on the 5th, or a D minor that starts and stops on the 7th, depending on what you want to call it.

      : They’re all just different ways of describing the scales. The Key signatures tell you what notes of the scale are flatted/sharped.

      : When I’m soloing I think very little about scales, and modes. I do try to remember what key we’re in and the chord that’s being played, but I don’t really specifically think about it, it’s more of a thing to keep in the back of your mind as you’re playing.

      : Theory should free up your playing, not clutter it with cumbersome rules….practice theory at home and play from the ears and the gut when you’re on a job.

      : I hope this gives you something to use.

      :
      : : I would like to know if anyone has approached the guitar this way. I am self-taught so I don’t know ALL the lingo. Anyway I have a question on improvisational soloing. Say we are playing in A Major, I am playing in an AMaj Scale, then the song goes to a F#m (the vi chord in the key). The minor scale in F#m are the same notes as in AMaj. Now say that the chord changes to a DMaj (the IV chord) I notice that all the notes are the same except there is a flat 7. Also if the chord changed to a ii (Bm) the minor scale would be just the same as the A Major scale except for a flat 7. Then there is the iii and V chords (C#m and EMaj). The only difference in these scales are a sharp 4. (ie. E Major scale, C# Minor scale). Has anyone else noticed this (I’m sure it’s in a book somewhere on this planet). I am wondering if an experienced player out there uses this to their advantage (like when the "chord of the moment" changes to a V chord, you would move all of your 4’s sharp, then switch back to normal after you get back to the Root chord). I don’t know if any of this makes sense to anyone else but myself, but if it does, I would like to hear how others use this to play, or if I’m missing something. Thanks,

      : I just paid 15 bucks for it and I think the production was pretty horrible considering he has his own studio now and everything. I can understand his preference to
      : stay in the rhythm pickup mode but he probably forgot to turn up the treble on the final mix down. I fail to understand how such a huge influence on todays shredders chose not to be more innovative in recent productions. I’ve heard his reggae and blues improvisations live that were absolutely astonishing!
      : Good thing I also bought Dave Brubeck "Time Out", so I didn’t feel to jipped.

      I agree, it is yet another disappointing Yngwie album. He’s lost it, and can’t seem to get it back.
      Its been that way for some time now, though. I have also heard that live, he is better than ever, which is why
      I had big hopes for this album.

      Hmm.Interesting.My theory is kinda rusty,but I’ll give it a shot.When the tune moves to F#m,Bm,C#min I’d try to stay aware of this key change.Being already familiar
      with this type of transition,I’ll stay away from the unstable tones and hangout in the F#min(Pentatonic)zone.Until I hear the V chord turn-around,then I know it’s O.K. to return to the Amaj scale(pure).So be aware when the chord tones change, that will dictate your approach(choice of tones).The F#m,Bm,C#m is a 1,4,5,as you know.So why not handle it like an F# Blues??This transition opens up a lot of other options!
      But for now,never mind the theory! When improvising,use
      your ears and pick your tones smartly.The F#m is the minor 6 chord in Amaj.Whos relative major is Amaj!
      Hope this helps.

      I don’t think there’s a way of eliminating the hum of a older single-coils entirely, but…

      You should try and glue tinfoil on the inside of your guitar and the backside of your pickguard. That should take some of the hum.
      You could also chek the soldering of he earth cable on the backside of the bridge. The soldering shuld be shiny. If they’re not then replase them.

I was at a trade show in England when a friend told me to try this little gem. When I saw it I said I don’t like Mahogany guitars but as soon as I played it I simply could not put it down. I bought the guitar after about an hour of strumming and plucking the little beauty and still can’t put it down 4 months later. If, as I imagine, your dad bought the guitar originally because it played and sounded so great, why don’t you simply do the same. You will never replace the same guitar so go for the reasons why it was bought in the first place, sound and quality. I payed £650.00 for it so I think it retails for around 000.00 in the US Regards, Dave

      The thing to do with a wah wah is to keep rocking it back and forth in time with the music, it’s more of a feel thing than anything else….listen to Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) by Hendrix, then listen to Stevie Ray Vaughan (live and studio versions), you’ll see they don’t play it the same way….a good rule of thumb is to be pushing it down at the toe on the beat, at the heel on the upbeat, of course rules are meant to be broken, so do whatever you want as you go.

      Floyd Rose’s are great, but they’re extraordinarily annoying to adjust. You have to remove the string to adjust the intonation (do this only one string at a time or you’ll really play hob putting it back together). With the string removed there should be either an allen screw in front of the saddle. You have to loosen it and move the saddle where you want it. If it won’t move far enough you have to remove the screw and put it in another screw slot, there are two or three in the bridge itself. What a pain in the neck it all is.

      : I got myself an Ibanez RG270DX the other day and it’s got
      : that (copy of) a Floyd Rose bridge. On my other guitar
      : I can simply turn screws on the back of the bridge to move the
      : blocks where the strings run over back and forth, but how do I do
      : that with this kind of bridge? It seems turning the tubes holding the
      : strings at the back of the bridge only moves the string w.r.t. the block
      : and not the block itself…some advice would be welcome.

        Floyd Rose bridges are not that hard to adjust if you follow this procedure. Tune the guitar and balance the bridge so that it is level when tuned. This is done with the springs in the back. Check intonation. If a note is sharp, loosen that string quite a bit, then using a 2mm allen wrench and a flat blade screwdriver, loosen the screw holding down the saddle enough that you can push it back about 1/16" with the screwdriver, then retighten the saddle while holding it in position with the screwdriver. If you run out of range on a hold down screw, you will have to loosen the string to slack to move it back one position. PS this technique does require some coordination, if you don’t have good hand tool skills, it’s a good way to scratch your guitar, procede with caution, 😉

      Have you ever seen the circle of 4ths (circle of 5ths if you go the other way around the circle).

      C
      F G
      Bb/A# D
      Eb/D# A
      Ab/G# E
      Db/C# B
      Gb/F#

      If you go around clockwise it’s 5ths, counterclockwise is 4ths. The relative minor is 3 clockwise steps around the circle.

      Furthermore, from a key signature/scale standpoint, as you go clockwise, you’re adding a sharp to the scale, as you go counterclockwise, you’re adding a flat to the scale…to wit: the key signature for C is blank…no sharps, no flats, G is one sharp, D is two sharps, etc. F is one flat, Bb is two flats etc. The sharps and flats meet at Gb/F# which is six flats or six sharps, either way you want to make your eyes burn (that also means that legally, you could use 7 flats to denote the key of B, but while legal, it’s probably immoral).

      Now, what you’re talking about is another way of speaking of "Modes." I can’t tell you one mode from another, but I do know that in essence, a mode is a scale, for example C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C is C Major, also known as C Lydian (? I think that’s the right mode). There are other modes such as Mixolydian, Aeolian and a bunch of others. If you play C-D-E-F-G-A-Bb-C it makes it a C Mixolydian (? maybe), in actuality of course it’s either an F major that starts and stops on the 5th, or a D minor that starts and stops on the 7th, depending on what you want to call it.

      They’re all just different ways of describing the scales. The Key signatures tell you what notes of the scale are flatted/sharped.

      When I’m soloing I think very little about scales, and modes. I do try to remember what key we’re in and the chord that’s being played, but I don’t really specifically think about it, it’s more of a thing to keep in the back of your mind as you’re playing.

      Theory should free up your playing, not clutter it with cumbersome rules….practice theory at home and play from the ears and the gut when you’re on a job.

      I hope this gives you something to use.

      : I would like to know if anyone has approached the guitar this way. I am self-taught so I don’t know ALL the lingo. Anyway I have a question on improvisational soloing. Say we are playing in A Major, I am playing in an AMaj Scale, then the song goes to a F#m (the vi chord in the key). The minor scale in F#m are the same notes as in AMaj. Now say that the chord changes to a DMaj (the IV chord) I notice that all the notes are the same except there is a flat 7. Also if the chord changed to a ii (Bm) the minor scale would be just the same as the A Major scale except for a flat 7. Then there is the iii and V chords (C#m and EMaj). The only difference in these scales are a sharp 4. (ie. E Major scale, C# Minor scale). Has anyone else noticed this (I’m sure it’s in a book somewhere on this planet). I am wondering if an experienced player out there uses this to their advantage (like when the "chord of the moment" changes to a V chord, you would move all of your 4’s sharp, then switch back to normal after you get back to the Root chord). I don’t know if any of this makes sense to anyone else but myself, but if it does, I would like to hear how others use this to play, or if I’m missing something. Thanks,

      : I have a Boss GT-3 and that is not a problem since you can use the manual function which is controlled bu tre "control" pedal. This makes all the other pedals in the board control single effects while being in the same patch- so it would be just like using stomp boxes…. The GT-3 doesn’t have such a noticible delay between patches eather, and i know there is a way to make delay effect not cut when changing patches ( it says on the manual ) but i still haven’t had the time to figure it out.– I also use single pedals along with my multi-effects, it doesn’t change sound quality….the GT-3 also gives you the option of adding your own distortion pedal in the chain.

      I just paid 15 bucks for it and I think the production was pretty horrible considering he has his own studio now and everything. I can understand his preference to
      stay in the rhythm pickup mode but he probably forgot to turn up the treble on the final mix down. I fail to understand how such a huge influence on todays shredders chose not to be more innovative in recent productions. I’ve heard his reggae and blues improvisations live that were absolutely astonishing!

      : I forget what the exact name of this axe is, but sure enough Gibson made a thinline, hollowbody, double cut Les Paul in the 70’s(LP Signature?). It has a Les Paul Cutaway on the bottom and an Es cut on the top. I think they have somekind of special PU’s on them. They came in gold and tobacco sunburst(there could be more but I’ve seen these at shows). They weren’t real popular(everyone wanted Standards) and were discontiued inthe late 70’s. Michael Ward of the Wallflowers and School of Fish swears by them.
      Epiphone reissued them in the late 90’s.

      The noise you are experiencing is a common side effect of single coil pickups. Also called 60
      cycle hum. Sometimes you can eliminate the noise with a noise gate, changing cables, or
      moving aroung the room till you find a spot that’s quieter. You can also replace the pickups
      with hum-eliminating single coils.

      I have not played a Tak, but I have played the big baby. I was impressed with the sound for the $. It sounds good but not as full as a full size acoustic would. The neck is bolt on and would easily allow for a change if need be. Taylors in my experience tend to have skinnk necks. What you should do is decide which one you feel more comfortable with. Have someone else play them for you so you can hear how the guitar sounds to others as they would be listening to you play. Don’t buy on others recommendations because only you knows what works for you. You are the one who will be miserable if you get something you really don’t wind up liking.

      No, they are not hard to use at all. You just have to get used to them. Yes, you must use the pedal to get the wah effect. By rocking the pedal you get the wah-wah sound. With your heel down the guitars low frequencies are emphasized, with your toe down the high frequencies are emphasized. Also, if you want to obtain a constant wah tone you can activate the pedal and leave it in any position and that tone will remain constant. That is very useful for getting a cool mid-rangy nasal tone to give some character to your solo’s. As a side note, MXR (I believe it’s MXR), makes an effect pedal that does that very thing. Instead of a wah pedal, it is a stompbox that has a couple of tone knobs that you set to emphasize a certain frequency, very cool. Anyway, I hope this helps. If you have any more questions, please post them.

      I am very entry level and am looking for my first guitar…I don’t want to go too much above 00, and would like folks’ advice on acoustics in that range. One place was pushing the Takamine GS 330 S real hard, and I’ve seen very good reviews on them on the Web.

      Another place downplayed the Taks and said the Taylor Big Baby was the best in that price range. I took a look at the Big Babys, and my first impression was that they seemed light (too light?), the neck seemed a bit narrow (high and low E strings seemed to want to fall off the neck), and it seemed a bit quieter than others I strummed. Also wasn’t too pleased with the exposed bolts in the fretboard used to bolt the neck to the body.

      BUT, what do I know? Maybe I don’t know how to evaluate a guitar properly. I mean, it is a Taylor. Several places said it was hands down the best guitar for the money. What do you think?

      Any comments on the Tak, Big Baby, and others in the 00 price range would be appreciated.

The objective is to maintain flexibility across most of the music genre, with a need to ensure that tone and separations is maximised especially in a variety of venues eg. outdoor, indoor, dull, bright.

        Hi Mike, I am not sure. I am also interested in this topic, I own a Starfield Teak Custom built in the beginning of the 90’s (made in Japan). It has a well crafted two piece teak wood body. The finish is natural and waxed. This guitar is absolutely great. The only thing I modified were the pickups. Originally it was equipped with two lipsticks but I made a new pickguard and put a Fender Gold Lace Sensor and a DiMarzio Fast Track in. It sounds dry and crystal clear. A little bit like a Tele. Good for blues and funk. This guitar is a killer. Now, to you question: Starfield Guitars were a subsidiary (daughter company) of Ibanez. I heard it was founded because Ibanez had too much employees and few work at this time. So the instruments were built by the Ibanez Custom Shop (I am not really sure about this) for a cheaper price. Two Series: The more expensive American Series (made in USA) and the Japan Series (made in Japan). But the models where not the same. My Teak Starfield was only available in the Japan Series. The quality was very good. Good value for money. I cannot compain about my guitar (it is not my main axe, I prefer my extremely customized Fender Strat Plus) and I will probably never sell it. I play in an ELvis Cover Band and it perfeclty suits the 70’s where James Burton played. I play it over a Peavey 5150 and a Custom Hiwatt 100. More, I don’t know at the moment. Cheers, Dominic

      : Personally, the Big Muff is the best pedal distortion available. Because it is simple, it allows the guitar and amp to come through or it can be a tone generator giving you gobs of gain/distortion.
      Just remember that for best results, your guitar should be in tune(I find that even the slightest tuning problem can make evil overtones with the muff) and don’t turn it all the way up. I could never get a decent sound with it dimed. Try putting the volume half way up and the sustain(distortion) half way, then play with the tone knob to add treble. I recommend a tube amp with it since a tube amp usually reacts musically to input gain(ie a pedal)rather than a solid state amp. I’ve played and owned most of the classic pedals and the Big Muff is my favorite.

      : I bought a Copicat in 1995 because I just had to have a tape echo. With the tape and heads etc. it was a pain to keep running. I had always heard the Space Echo was great, so I bought one. I think it has many more features as well as a clearer sound and is much more reliable. I don’t have the Copicat to A/B, but given the choice, I’d take the Roland. If you are a hardcore tape head, it may leave a bit to be desired.But I bet it’ll work a lot more.

      Dude the pedal rocks! I use it for my overdrive. I can’t afford a big tube amp yet cuz i’m in college. But it has got so major balls, great for fast alternate picking and ect. Only disatvantage, its a pain to get a good lead setting! Also buy a Boss & band EQ for it. It will really help dail in the tone, i never shut off my eq ever! Good settings are:
      LEVEL 70% Treble 50%, BASS 60% Mid 60%, MID Freq 40% I believe… or i might have to to mids switched.. sorry. Also get a Ibenaz tube screamer, that pedal will really add to your rythem and lead tone. Give you that warm tone. Its a great pedal, but i’d trade it for a tube amp with a kilker OD any day, i think everyone would. Get it!

      Well, have you seen it?
      First off, is it all original? If not start shaving money off. If it doesn’t have the original PU’s take even more off. Does it have a lot of flame in the finish? The more flame, the more $ it’s worth.
      Your friend’s guitar is worth anywhere from 0K to 5 k depending on condition and originality. If it’s mint maybe more….Take it to a music store and watch them either: A) shit twice and die or
      B) try to shaft you out of it

      The pickups are microphonic. You have 2 options: Replace them or have them wax potted. Wax potting is cheaper, especially if you are happy with the sound. Find a repair shop that will do this for you.

      i understand, when i was 14 there’s noone outthere giving me advise on how to play a guitar.

      1.how long it would take? one of my friend made it in 2 weeks to master all the basic rythm, and some of them never make it.
      2.metalica use ESP guitars. however,gibson is more all rounded. at least u can play matal and hard rock.gibson epiphone sounds pretty ok now (relatively cheap)

      i will recommend u to go for mutli-effect(rp-100,zoom505II….cheaper one), pedals is kinda expensive for a beginner, and u dont have enought experience to adjust the tone.

      or just use the dist channer on the amp. it sounds pretty good also.

      anyway, it’s just my own opinion for a beginner…good luck.

        The MT-2 is quickly becoming my favorite distortion pedal… I preferred the blues driver because I have a Marshall amp that has a great distortion tone but the MT-2 is the most versatile distortion I have found. It can give tones from a warm distortion to a nasty grundge distortion… anything you want i run the level a little high to overdrive my pre amp but the pedal itself has a great tone if you have a good amp try these settings: level 12 o’clock bass: almost all the way up high: 2 o’clock mids level:2 o’clock and pan the mids freq for tone to the far left is a heavy tone and to the far right is a bright distortion…. the pedal is great my only complaint is that it is a littlr heavy if you ever want a clean lead… i switch to my blues driver to play lead and still match the level of my MT-2 Have fun with it, Ben

      Hi,
      I have an EMG in the neck and a passive DiMarzio X2N humbucker in the bridge. This works fine but you are unable to ground your passive pickups when installed. This causes a hum when using the pickup. It isn’t bad with a humbucker but when using a passive single coil, it gets noisy. If you want to have two independent volumes than you can ground the pickup. You are unable to use the pickups at the same time though.

      Hi,
      sus stands for suspended. A suspended chord replaces the third with a fourth, a sixth or a ninth(which is a 2nd an octave up.) They sound as if they are neither major nor minor. Like they are suspended. If you are familiar with Queensryche they use suspended chords quite a bit.
      Tabs for some common sus chords(starting from low e):

      Asus2: x 0 2 2 0 0
      Dsus2: x x 0 2 3 0
      Dsus4: x x 0 2 3 3

      Hope this helps!

      After the burial of my father I discovered a semi-hollow electric guitar in his closet. Sunburst in color and in decent condition the products name was removed from the headstock. No other dentifying labels other than the serial number bolted on a plate on the back of the neck.

      It’d be usefull for people to know where you are geographically, otherwise they won’t know if they can jam with you or not. I’m guessing that the TX in your ID thing means you’re in Texas, in which case I can’t.

      There is a used fender twin reverb at a local music store where i live. It seems in OK condition. There is some rust on the top, and it just looks old (obviously). I havnt played it. I wanted to know if it is worth buying this amp (only clean channels) for 99.99??

        Definatly check the amp out first.When you turn it on the tubes should glow blueish color.Crank it for a few minutes,make sure it doesn’t cut-off or get shitty.It should keep it’s clear tone at high volumes.Look at the speakers,you’ll want the original fender speakers in there.Also,check each channel and the bright switch, make sure they’re functioning right.$699 seems kinda high,so try to check out other stores before you buy. $550-$650 is about right.If you really want it,DON’T BULLSHIT.Throw what ya’ got right on the counter! If it works well, your money will be well spent. Good Luck

        If it works well, and the tubes are OK (should play loud) Twins range from $450-$650. Remember, tubes cost$ to replace and can be a hassle to get, but the sound a Twin can get can be worth it. If you really want it, offer them less. $699 seems on the high side to me?? But I’m cheap.

      Back in ’81,I was shopping for a high output pickup with good tone.I nearly bought the Schecter Super Rock
      pickup,be the dealer refused to sell it to me.His words
      were,"Super Rock my balls!!" "Van Halen uses the SH-5".
      So I installed them in my ’77 LES PAUL.The other guitar player in my group was using the DiMarzio X2N. AT high volumes the SH-5 kept it’s tonal integrity, while the X2N turned to SHIT!! I was using a DOD overdrive 250,a cranked Twin Reverb and a Cry-baby. I’ve been chasing that sound for years!! The SH-5 is about 14.5 ohms with a ceramic magnet.It’s got high output with classic tone!
      Thanx for listening to my story.

        I would also like to know what it is, but from what i’ve picked up its an amplifier used to boost the line signal from very quiet/small to much larger, i read its generally for microphones; why do you hear how so many guitarists have them then? I’ve studied some popular artists rigs and find they plug their guitar into a preamp then into several further ‘poweramps’ then into cabinets; that’s about all i know so anyone else?

      Martin makes a DM series acoustic that sounds great. I think Guitar Center has them for 00-600. Guild makes good acoustics in your price range, (though I personally don’t care for Guilds) Might want to check out an Alvarez too. Pick one that YOU like, not what everybody else says you should buy. Good luck.

      SERIOUSLY NO SCAMS! LOTS OF CASH, FAST AND COMPLETELY LEGAL,
      THIS REALLY WORKS!! THIS REALLY CAN MAKE YOU EASY MONEY!! IT
      WORKS!!! BUT YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW IT TO A LETTER FOR IT TO WORK!
      ALL THIS TAKES IS .00 NO FURTHER RISK. IT JUST MIGHT BE WORTH
      LOOKING AT.
      A little while back, I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now, and came
      across an article similar to this that said you could make thousands of dollars within weeks
      with only an initial investment of .00! So I thought," Yeah, right, this must be a scam",
      but like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you send .00
      to each of the 6 names and address stated in the article. You then place your own name
      and address in the bottom of the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups.
      (There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it over, and talking to a few
      people first, I thought about trying it. I figured what have I got to lose except 6 stamps
      and .00, right? Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried about the legal
      aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S. Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they
      confirmed that it is indeed legal! Then I invested the measly .00. Well GUESS
      WHAT!!… within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I figured it
      would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I made about
      5.00. By the end of the second week I had made a total of over ,000.00! In the third
      week I had over 0,000.00 and it’s still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have
      made a total of just over 2,000.00 and it’s still coming in rapidly. It’s certainly worth
      .00, and 6 stamps. Let me tell you how this works and most importantly, why it
      works….also, make sure you print a copy of this article NOW, so you can get the
      information off of it as you need it. STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the
      following on each piece of paper "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST." Now
      get 6 US .00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of paper so the bill will
      not be seen through the envelope to prevent thievery. Next, place one paper in each of the
      6 envelopes and seal them. You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of
      paper stating the above phrase, your name and address, and a .00 bill. What you are
      doing is creating a service by this. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! Mail the 6
      envelopes to the following addresses:
      1) Randall Hickman New Market, TN 37820
      2) Jack 6342 S.E.83rd Portland, OR.97266
      3) Ben Spyrison 3175 West Forest Rd. Freeport, Il. 61032
      4) C Bare 2965 Leawood Dr Anchorage AK 99515
      5) J. G. Dysarczyk 3508 Paseo De Los Americanos 82 Oceanside, CA 92056
      6) PUT YOUR NAME HERE and forward
      STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the other names up
      (6 becomes 5, 5
      becomes 4, etc…) and add YOUR Name as number 6 on the list. STEP 3: Change
      anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to original as possible. Now, post
      your amended article to at least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000
      groups) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you
      make!
      —DIRECTIONS —HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS—- Step 1) You do not need
      to re-type this entire letter to do your own posting. Simply put your cursor at the
      beginning of this letter and drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select
      ‘copy’ from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the computers memory. Step
      2) Open a blank "notepad" file under accessories in windows and place your cursor at the
      top of the blank page. From the ‘edit’ menu select ‘paste’. This will paste a copy of the
      letter into notepad so that you can add your name to the list. Step 3) Save your new
      notepad file as a .txt file. If you want to do your postings in different sittings, you’ll always
      have this file to go back to. Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching
      for various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites, discussions.) Step 5)
      Visit these message boards and post this article as a new message by highlighting the text
      of this letter and selecting paste from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the
      header that everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a particular group,
      click the post message button. You’re done with your first one! Congratulations…THAT’S
      IT! All you have to do is jump to different newsgroupes and post away, after you get the
      hang of it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup! **REMEMBER,
      THE MORE NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL
      MAKE!! BUT YOU HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200** That’s it! You will begin
      reciving money from around the world within days! You may eventually wany to rent a
      P.O.Box due to the large amount of mail you will receive. If you wish to stay anonymous,
      you can invent a name to use, as long as the postman will deliver it. **JUST MAKE
      SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT.** Now the WHY part: Out of 200
      postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low example). So then I made .00 with my
      name at #6 on the letter. Now, each of the 5 persons who just sent me .00 make the
      MINIMUM 200 postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each of
      the original 5, that is another 5.00 for me, now those 25 each make 200 MINIMUM
      posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I will bring in an additional 25.00!
      Now, those 125 persons turn around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3
      and only receive 5 replies each, I will make an additional 26.00! OK, now here is the
      fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with my name at #2 and
      they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me ,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will
      all deliver this message to 200 newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per
      200 newsgroups react I will receive 5,625,00! With a original investment of only .00!
      AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the list, you just take the latest posting in
      the newsgroups, and send out another .00 to names on the list, putting your name at
      number 6 again. And start posting again. The thing to remember is, do you realize that
      thousands of people all over the world are joining the internet and reading these articles
      everyday, JUST LIKE YOU are now!! So can you afford .00 and see if it really
      works??
      I think so… People have said, "what if the plan is played out and no one sends you the
      money? So what! What are the chances of that happening when there are tons of new
      honest users and new honest people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday
      and are willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new users, every day,
      with thousands of those joining the actual internet. Remember, play FAIRLY and
      HONESTLY and this will work. thanks for participating

      I am trying to remember the make and model of a particular guitar I played a couple of times in a shop back in the mid 80’s. It was a *solid-body* nylon string guitar, totally electric, but shaped like a single cutaway classical guitar, complete with spruce (or spruce-like) top and classical guitar-style tuning heads. It even had a round "hole"-shaped depression in the solid body under the strings. Two more things I remember but are unsure of: that it may have been a Yamaha, and that it may have been called an "Andy Summers Model".

      If anyone can, please name that guitar’s make and model. Thanks!

      Play them big thick ‘uns.
      If you can play on them and get used to them, they’re much better. They sound better and last longer.

However you have take notice of the body style, and the RR1s are hard to play sitting down in my opinion while the sl 1 is versatile enough for standing or sitting and you have to notice the difference in pickups with only one humbucker being present on the soloist. Wish I had a tough decision like this make, too expensive for my blood man. I learned alot time ago, if your good enough it dont matter what your playing on. Peace

        I own both, they are both great guitars. THe neck of the rr-1 nd the soloist is the same so pull offs and bends are no different on them. The only disadvantage with the rr-1 is it only has 22 frets and is a little harder to sit down and play it. Although, using a strap it makes it easy to sit down and play, just a little different then when sitting and playing a strat type guitar, like the soloist : Please tell me your honost opions about the : Jackson Randy Rhoads RR1T : and the : SL-1 Soloist USA : Tell me some of the advantages and Disadvantages, Would the soloist and rr1t be good enough guitars to perform infront of audiances, concerts, gigs, which one would be ebtter for the pull offs, bends, i’ve narrowed my dicission to the Randy Rhoads RR1T and the SL-1 Soloist

      : You’ve got some cash to spend! I think you should buy two guitars. A Fender Stratocaster(for 50-900 you could get an American Hendrix Model) and a humbucker equipt axe like an ESP for your Kirk Hammett jones. 1400 is enough to buy one really nice guitar or two nice guitars that do different things. Check Gbase.com. Type in what you want and sit back!

      : Could anyone tell me how much it costs to have a guitar painted (single color). I guess it depends on the type of paint but perhaps someone could give me a price range. It’s a midnight blue Fender strat. It looks however more like midnight purple to me, so I would like to make it actually look blue.

      I was looking for the same sound for a while. So I started playing around with a few stomp boxes. I play on a combo amp, a marshall vs265r the distortion is nice and all but sometimes I needed more out of it. I use the following to get that sound. I put jim dunlop fuzz face (the one hendrix use to use) that goes into a lovetone brown source pedal to get the thick bass feel to it and then an eq set to a smiley face type of setting it works wonders. The lovetone’s gonna set you back a couple hundred but believe me it is very worth the price!!!!! Hit me back and let me know what you think.

      Check out Doug Cerrito and Terrance Hobbs of Suffocation. Though they are disbanded pick up thier Pierced From Within cd, try to ignore the death metal vocals and just listen to the guitar guitar work. They are the total extremity of killer technical guitar work. They seem to never use the same riff and the time changes and chord structuring is just absolutely the finest I have ever heard. When I saw them live a few years back the guitar playing was so excellent, I thought they were just faking it and air-guitarring it to the cd, but they were playing it and I couldn’t believe their precision and technicality. Throughout the whole set not once did I see one of them even look at thier fretboards and the riffs and solos were right on dead perfect. They are tied at the no.1 spot in my book.

      : : Hmm.Take your time and make sure your fingers are properly curled over the fret board.Position your left hand so that only the tips of your fingers are pressing
      : : the notes.Then strum up and down,just brushing the strings.Try not to press the strings too hard,you only need a little presure to ring the notes.Playing clean chords will take some practice.So,put in at least two hours a day doing just that.You’ll get it.
      : : Good Luck

      every guitar player has gone thru the same problem. Icould give you a million sugestions but practice is the answer… try curling your fingers like a cat claw, hit each string one at a time and get a clear note from each string…don’t be afraid to move your fingers around till you get the sound you are looking for…a buddy of mine says you aren’t a real musician untill you’ve played a million notes…best of luck …don’t get discouraged… you never feel worse after you put your guitar down…wavey!

      There are many to choose from. I personally like the ones with LED lights instead of the needle display. Don’t spend more than 0 – 0. Boss makes good ones as well as Sabine. Make sure that you get a chromatic tuner. This type will allow you to tune to any note. Some guitar tuners only allow for standard tuning EADGBE.

      The string trees have caused tuning problems for me in the past. You might try graphtech trees, I love them. Or You try not running any trees at all. The nut might also cause some binding. If it is bone or plastic, try using graphite from a penci. If You hear any noises(ticcks & pings) when tremming thats noot a good thing . GOD LUCK

The amp you ultimately use will have a lot to do w/the sound. Metallica drop tunes 1/2 step, which affects the overall sound of them. Hendrix "mainly" used a Strat through Marshalls. But,TO ME, he sounded lousy live. You can go with a Strat that offers some sort of Humbucker at the bridge position, or IMHO,better yet, a PRS Custom 24,or, better YET, a McInturff Polaris Pro. The PRS is the most expensive, a nice axe,but I don’t like the pups. The McInturff has a LOT going for it in this price range. Hope this helped.

      : Okay, to my knowledge the Duo sonic did not have the slider switches. This would the Mustang. Mustangs were made from the early 60’s right up into the late seventies. Of course the mmodel gained a great deal of popluarity when Cobain played one. I just saw a mustang in Very Good condition, white w/tortoise pickguard for 00. It was a 1966, which I think yours is. The duosonic, had two pu’s but a hardtailpiece and one traditional switch. If the guitar has a whammy, it’s a Mustang.
      The mustang was the # 1 student model along with the Duo Sonic and the Musicmaster. Great, underated vintage fender. you’ve got a keeper I’d say!

      : I think you are going to be ditching the pedals. I know what you are looking for, all out crunch with some defining cleaness to make it more massive. I think you should try going straight into your amp and playing with the other channels. Your Marshall should be able to get thi sound. you’ll have to play with it though. And expect to find this sound at an extemely high volume when the tubes are working hard.

      Hello Death Metal fellow!

      The best guitars for death grind are Jackson\Charvel or BC Rich. You also need nice and hot pick ups. (The X2N will do great!) You also need a gainey amp.
      Death Metal needs sustain which bolt on guitars(like the strat) don’t do well. Idealy you want a neck through axe with a pair of humbuckers. A mahogony or koa body would help also.

      Let the metal flow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      What style are you looking for? Do you want stuff that is technically difficult to improve you picking or some interesting phrasing and such?
      As for difficult stuff to learn to improve your playing the Satrianis Zappas and Vai’s are ok. I prefer to learn Chuck Schundler(Death) and Fredrik Thordendal(Meshugga) to improve my chops.
      As for original interesting playing to improve you creativity, Ty Tabor(Kings X), Denis D’Amore(Voivod), Andy Cohen(Silkworm), and Page Hamilton(Helmet) will teach ya some cool playing.

        I picked up a 1962 Fender Duosonic about 10 years ago for around £200 (about $280), which wasn’t in great condition but sounded fine with the volume cranked right up! Still plays OK, but I think the neck is a little twisted as the low E never seems to tune up correctly. Is there a way to fix this?

      I was wondering wher one might go to get a value for a guitar onthe internet. It is used and has a few blemishes. Is thee anything like Kelly’s Blue Book or Edmunds for musical instruments. If I take it to the local guitar shop, how do I know if I am getting a fair price. Thanks in advance for your help in this matter.

      Yes I totally agree, I suppose things do become popular because many jump on the bandwagon. Personaly I don’t think I could handle another string, I have enough trouble with the 6. But I still think I can be useful for more classical music, I am not a fan of limp, to me it’s pants. Plus wasn’t there a saying about adding strings to your bow being a good thing. Perhaps it’s popular in rock for many different reasons than in classical of some jazz. Cheers, Phil

      : : Let’s be honest. There are only two reasons that 7 strings are popular again(George Van Eps fans notwithstanding): KORN AND LIMP BIZKIT.
      : Steve Vai repopularized it to some extent, but it took those twoto blow it up. Now most manufacturers sell at least seven string models.

      : Hi Tara. Couldn’t find a tougher song to cover eh?
      Really, I remember reading that James Iha did the solo on that song and used a detuning harmony patch on his digitech IP-333. You couild probably get close with an octave pedal and a whammy pedal. No whammy? Use a slide and whiz it up the strings with some delay.
      Good luck. Tell me how it works out.

      I think the pickup cavity is already routed out so you
      can use humbuckers,I’m not sure.But if not,try some high-output stacked pickups before you chop up your axe.Duncan "Screamin’ Demons",Dmarzio HS-3’s, are pretty cool.There are others that you might want to try.

      John Tropea,Cornell Dupree,Icarus Johnson and Lee Ritenour(Captain Fingers)were also big names of 70’s fusion.Most of the stuff Ray Gomez played on was some

        Ray Gomez… surely the most ignored guitar player, among the great ones! I think he is one of the best, I’d say… Beck, Santana, Van Halen… and Ray Gomez, among others, of course. Or should I say Ray Gomez in first place? I’ve been looking for records with his playing in for years, I’ve been at some gigs… emotion at its maximum level. He impressed me so much that i was for one or two hours after the gig wandering around the city, trying to recover.. serious! He’s the essence, the heart of the real thing in rock, jazz, soul, r’n’b… energy!!!

      I don’t know what you mean by "twisting" the arm. You should either push the arm down towards the body, or pull it up to change the note or chord (or go back and forth for a tremolo sound). The arm shouldn’t be screwed in tight. It should just hang there until you want to use it. It sounds like to me that you are trying to screw it in farther to use it, instead of pushing down or pulling up ??

      Eddie G is right. But if your not going to take lessons, a good place to start is to try and mimic your favorite songs, not just the notes and chords, but the sound as well. It is always good to practice scales, but don’t limit yourself to just pentatonic scales. If you don’t read tab , learn it.

      I get a great maiden sound out of my strat (Phantom, Aces, 2mins etc). I use a mashall jackhammer distortion pedal, touch of reverb, & the secret weapon, a pitch shifter (very different to chorus). If used correctly a pitch shifter is awesome for thicking sounds, what I do is send the right channel down a 10th of a semitone & the left up a 10th. I am not a great lover of expensive guitars, look at it his way man went to the moon on technology that was weaker than a scientific calculator which was placed in a washing machine, but look at the pc’s we have today. The same is for guitars on the whole £250 get’s you a great guitar. I am sure many of the older players would agree that us babies are very spoilt for choice. SO on that note, just think of how many FX units are out there, today you can get almost any sound these units & of course you ears. However the only sound that I think a strat just can’t get, or any other guitar for that matter is the gibson SG, if I ever get rich I am going to by me a few of these. See YA phil

      Look at it this way, Keith Richards would say why do people play a 6 string when they can’t master a 5? Personaly I think an extra string can be very useful ie in bass runs, finger picking or thicking chords, listen to a bit of Egberto Gismonti it’s a mix of very complicate jazz with a touch of classical & brazilian styles thrown in, he plays a 7, 9, 13 string it’s a very different sound, sounds like 3-4 seperate instruments. Well that’s what I think, I suppose there are many other styles & sounds other than blues, rock & metal.

        : I dont know what a la Trey Azagoth is but I know one thing. Speed picking is in the elbow not the hand. Use heavy gauge pick and use the elbow. NO WRIST!!!! Speed picking can be developed by many ways. The elbow only coment is somewhat unfounded. However if you want speed the elbow should function like where a ROD is connected to a crankshaft and your pick is the piston. The wrist will help a great deal when it comes to string skipping. Also to better define my argument watch EVH when he does his tremelo/speed picking its almost all wrist and trying to emulate that will drive ya crazy. GET a metronome and practice chromatic and scalular exercises using down, up picking. Also make sure you can move from string to string fluintly. K. Hammett would just sit and watch TV while playing open strings. Developing skills like Trey’s is admirable but find your own voice because music will come out of you then.

        I spent a little time with Al Dimeola just before I left to attend Berklee and he held my wrist and hand and showed me how his picking technique is derived 100% from the wrist. No elbow. Onthe other hand, I took several lessons from Harry Leahey and he showed me how his technique is derived 100% from the elbow. The point is that no one technique is correct for everyone.

        buy an Ibanez edge or lo-pro edge, that would be your best option. You will not have this problem anymore.

      Hmm.Take your time and make sure your fingers are properly curled over the fret board.Position your left hand so that only the tips of your fingers are pressing
      the notes.Then strum up and down,just brushing the strings.Try not to press the strings too hard,you only need a little presure to ring the notes.Playing clean chords will take some practice.So,put in at least two hours a day doing just that.You’ll get it.
      Good Luck

      I would find a teacher,someone you feel comfortable with and who’ll teach you what you need to know.You’ll
      progress rapidly and he/she can point out your weak spots and help you develope them.
      Good Luck

      I’d wait a little while and let the pickups get broken in a bit before i change ’em. If your having trouble staying in tune,check with your guitar tech. It could be the tremelo,neck setup,or mechine heads.
      Good Luck

      Ray Gomez,"School Days"(Stanley Clarke),The guitar dual
      between Neil Schon and Ray Gomez,"And We Meet Again"
      (Lenny White).Tommy Bolin,"Quadrant 4"(Billy Cobham).
      I really like Mike Hampton’s solo on the Live Dr.Funkenstein,well constructed,kinda bluesy and kinda
      pretty in section 2.My favorite solo’s are the simple ones,so I didn’t list them.
      Thanx

      I made these two up. One is cool, one is just wrong.

      What do you call philisophical monks?
      Deep Friars

      Why did the cannibal always eat gays and quadroplegics?
      His mother always told him to make sure to eat his "Fruits and Vegetables."

      Sorry

      Practice for 2 hr a day with G A D C Em in their open position & in 6 weeks you will strum them easily. After this go to bar chords try to get F, & then you will learn chords in seconds. A great song to start with is luck man by the verve. It starts G – just to 2 downward strums, then D – just to 2 downward strums then A – which has about 4 strums. This goes around about 5 times then us Em, G, D, A for the chorus. After a couple of weeks you will nail these chords & will develope a strumming style to match the song & hey presto your playing a song. Guitars are very, very easy to play, it’s practicing that’s hard. When practicing just remember, the road to ruin is paved with good intentions! Amen.
