First time recording myself singing today after 6 month, sounded like shit but not as shit as I would have thought, might get singing lessons, pretty stoked
and my ableton doesn't recognize my crack anymore :(
How do you guys usually learn a song that's out of your league? I usually
>Force myself to play it as fast as I can even though I miss notes
>Then play it really slowly and hit every note perfectly and build up speed
>Play along to the tune a couple of times until I feel done
I don't know if this is good or not but I don't know any other way and just grinding to a metronome seems boring
I used to use a metronome but found it easier to just listen to it and break it down by sections, learning pieces and then putting the whole thing together. I used to use tabs first then guitapro or whatever that program was called. Now I just listen to it and figure out the notes. The phrasing might be off that way but I find ways to play it that are easier for my level.
local shops will probably do that for free
depends on where you live tho, they may not be able to match their price to one of a foreign seller and obviously not everyone has a shop nearby
support your local shops yall
I'm talking about ordering online from somewhere like elderly versus some warehouse site. I should have clarified. I just didn't know if the shipping would render the truss adjustment moot, not that I can't do that myself.
My local shop can eat a dick. The repair side is good, but I can't make myself set foot in the store it's in.
I know that feel. Mine sells way over the average on used and won't give you shit on a trade. The whole place also has that vibe where you just aren't welcome. If you look like you're dumb and rich, they fleece you and try to sell you gear that won't work with what you have. If you aren't looking at an overpriced martin, you will be ignored but glared at. They don't honor their return policy, the manager is always 'out somewhere' when you need to speak with him, unless you are speaking to him, in which case he will badger you worse than the lackeys and fuck if the owner is around because he looks and acts just like the jew on hardcore pawn. Coincidentally, he also owns a pawnshop across the street.
This is why I'm shopping online for a new guitar.
It has monster tone, a bigger, fuller sound than the 81/85 set I have in my ibanez, though not as hot, which is what I wanted. I was divided for days over which pickups to use, but after watching a video of Prashant Aswani playing "brain burn" with passive EMGs, I was sold. The action is a bit high and the neck needs to be a little smoother for my tastes, but it definitely sounds great.
My local shop had a sign that said NO ENTER SANDMAN OR BRAINSTEW....STAIRWAY OK
Mixing and mastering vocal tracks for band's EP (sadly, the recordings are shit since my voice was shit). Later I'll be recording overdubs and additional riffs with pic related
NO STAIRWAY DENIED!
our local shop has a similar list, I like the idea
people there are always nice and helpful unlike tho unlike >>53350519 or >>53350031 which sucks
Don't get it tho, with all the cheap online ordering stuff being nice and giving support should be mandatory for small shops to survive

I keep hearing good things about this one guitarcenter, but haven't had a chance to go. Virginia has a strange void of music stores with with a wide selection and the martin cocksuckle needs to stop.
It's the only one in town and they make bank off of band rentals, lessons and repairs. The rest of the store is just a trap for people who don't know how to use the internet.
I have found everything on amazon for cheaper than a store or even the site that makes the shit. My local store is good for strings , if you play daddario or Ernie balls, and that's it. The have a whole wall of nothing but corts and squiers. The only decent piece of music equipment in the whole place is an orange microterror which is overpriced by at least $30. Fuck them.
