So i just bought a fuzz pedal, but when i plug it into my Vox AC30c2, it either:
>Sounds like a clean tone with some fuzz in the background
or
>The volume goes down every time i play a note with the fuzz

Not sure how well i described the second one... but it seems like the only thing i can do to get the fuzzy tones without the clean tone is to lower my guitar's volume knob to almost 0. Someone help

Acoustics are rougher on the fingers, especially for beginners. Consider getting an electric if you can afford it, cheap one is fine.

Stretch your forearm muscles, finger muscles, etc, watch this, it helped me and I suffer from tendinitis. Practice chords and scales at slow pace, drill the chords into your brain.

Massage tense muscles. Also practicing for twenty minutes six days in a row is better than practicing for 7 hours one day...practice makes perfect, consistent practice.

play songs use backing tracks follow the high hat(cheat) and learn how to mute while picking. desu you are probably already pretty good though, that's a lot of lessons. Maybe train your ear and try to sing to pitch? being able to match your bass' pitch really helps you play by ear.

Not really, I stopped bothering once I realized it was a wate of time. My Albion TCT35c with a TS9 as a boost and a 2x12 with V30's gives me a great tone that I'm happy with for practice and recording, clean's are pretty good too.

Live meanwhile I use a POD HD500x + Matrix GT 800FX into a Randall 4x12 with V30's and it sounds decent to my ears, not the best tone possible but it's simple to setup for live and I don't wanna move the Albion around as it's fairly fragile.

Neither are my "Dream" tones but hey they both work good enough.

>>61499522
Unless they're pretty shit, no.
>>
>>61497360
You're oversaturating the vox or the fuzz. What pedal is it? Generally, if I'm gonna run a fuzz pedal into an amp that'll overdrive, I'll:

Keep guitar tone and volume all the way up
Turn the pedal volume way way down
Get the pedal tone knob(s) vaguely where I want them
Get the pedal gain/fuzz/whatever where I want it
Raise the pedal volume until it begins to drive the preamp of the amp
Finalize pedal tone/amp eq whatever

Also, if you want to use amp distortion in addition to pedal distortion, lower both of them.

If you want to do rhythm and lead from the guitar using the volume knob, just lower the guitar volume and dial in a crunch tone using the aforementioned process. Raise the guitar volume to get more distortion.

Laney IRT Studio is a good amp, as long as you're EQ'ing it right should give you a good tone.

Take the Digitech out of the chain though, it will color your tone a fuckload. Try it with guitar straight to amp for a while.

Set the gain about noon on the IRT and then use the boost, pro-tip, never set the boost very high, highest I'd ever go is 11 o'clock with it.

Also is it an Ironheart cab? They aren't good cabs if so, if you were looking at something to upgrade I'd say flip it and buy something else. The Ironhearts work best with V30's
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvCUuitPy_8

Also try to set the gain low, then boost a little with your Wampler.

You didn't answer my question. This >>61500511 was where I was going to go with it. I don't know what speakers are in your cabinet, but V30s is what I'd be using.

>>61500477
I didn't really like those JPs. I got sent some of the prototype JPs with the sharpened tips they were way nicer.

I swapped from the 1.38mm ultex to the carbon fiber as my main pick awhile ago. Wish they did a max grip ultex though, they sound better for sure.

scale length, pickup switches, memes. you know, the usual.

>>61500567
The IRT cabs have Laneys own drivers in there, they're pretty below average and funnily enough don't sound allthat great with the amps they were designed to go with. A cab with celestions would serve much better.
>>
>>61500611
My Laney cabinet says celestion equipped.
>>
>>61500080
TTs only have two gain stages. They shoot a ton of dirt, but it won't be tight or metallic.

Look at Egnater Tweakers. There's a dirt switch to pull in extra gain stages and two independent channels. Also a bunch of other really notable tonal options on board that I haven't seen in anything under high end equipment.

That's my best shot for getting close to Supro then Mesa/Orange in one economic amp.
>>
>>61500639
You sure? afaik the 160w cab is this one? http://www.andertons.co.uk/speaker-cabinets/pid25154/cid690/laney-iron-heart-irt212-2x12-cab.asp

If it had V30's it'd be rated at 120w.
>>
>>61500726
Yeah. Is it a bad cab?
>>
>>61500611
I figured that might be the case. Remember the Sheffields they put in the old 5150/6505 cabinets that were a complete mismatch to the 5150?

>>61500639
Then open it up and check what they are. >>61500404 comes with some in-house crap. If you want help with this at least try.

>>61500726
If it has Celestions they almost certainly aren't V30s. If it's a 160w and not using the Laney speakers (inb4 it is), it's probably got something like Celestion G12P-80 speakers--which would still sound like crap next to V30s in this application.

Hey /gg/ how's it going?

Speaking of the pedal discussion, I have a question for any gearheads who are into effects. I want to run an ibanez limiter pedal with a boss dd2 but it seems to make the hearable effect of the dd2 much less noticable. I just want to eliminate spikes in volume but this thing just dulls the sound of the effect. I tried a different order to no avail. I also tried using my tube screamer to maybe give it some more gain but I know fuck all about how to order pedals.

I know very little about amps, so is there a difference in 1x12 cabs? Different brands that people would recommend? It seems like a combo would be easier to have as a practice amp. I was looking at the Peavey 6505+, and it seemed too loud for a bedroom. Also took a look at the Vox AC15.
>>
>>61500756
Personally I couldn't pull a sound I liked with one and an Ironheart...much better off flipping the cab and getting something like a Orange or Mesa 2x12 closed back with v30's, will serve you a lot better with whatever amp head you buy

Cabs make a little difference, but that are only so many things you can do with a box. If the cab has a good speaker, you're in at this point.

The idea of a head is it can be paired with different cabs. So you might travel with just the head to band stuff and take it back home for practice.

Some amps sound good at lower volumes and full on.

AC15s are the best value for a lot of things, but they're a little thin for what you're trying to do imo.

Speakers make a whole lot of the difference, the build makes a huge difference too.

In your case I'd go with a good 1x12 with a Celestion V30, used Orange or Hughes & Kettners come pretty cheap. Really I'd just get a 2x12 as if you ever joined a band you could use that easily and wouldn't have to drop more money on another cab PLUS have a 1x12 that has worse resale value.

Peavey 6505+ would be ok (I think the regular 6505 is much better in how the gain channels sound). But yeah they need to be cranked to get a good sound.

Can look into used Marshall JCM 2000's (Avoid any of the modern Marshall DSL's, terrible amps), used Peavey Valvekings (newer models are much better).
>>
>>61500876
6505+ is definitely way too loud for a bedroom, you have to crank it a lot for it to not sound like tinny garbage

Thanks for the info. I think I'll see if I can get a Peavey Valveking, because I really don't feel comfortable trying to get an amp and a cab, and somehow fucking them up. I probably wouldn't be able to make a cab using that V30 that was recommended.

Nice setup btw, is it 2 4x10's or a 1x15 + 4x10?

>>61502787
Fair enough, it's pretty hard to fuck up with that though, you just have to match the ohms and you're aight.

But yeah a Valveking will serve you well if you can afford one, combo versions aren't too bad. Head + cab setup is just a good way to go if you'll be jamming with other muso's someday too in a band environment, although most combo's will do it alright.

Hey /gg/, wondering what to cop for a reverb, a Walrus Audio Descent, TC Electronic T2, or an always trusty Boss RV-6. Can you recommend any other? I want it to be versatile, and has to be black (or really dark, as the blue on the Descent is stretching it).
>>
>>61502959
All good man, hopefully you enjoy what you get.

>>61503081
Sounds aight! I've always preferred 6x10's myself, more oomph than a 4x10 and somewhat lighter than an 8x10 lol. Just need to find one that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.....

I sometimes use a 1x15 with a 4x10 but usually don't bother with the 1x15 as it just creates too much rumbly low-end.

2 4x10's/1x15's would be a cool rig though I will say.

>>61503183
Digitech Supernatural? It'd probably be on par with the RV-6 but I have no idea how it would compare to the Walrus or TC sorry.

Same, they aren't too common sadly, most people who get them already owned an 8x10, sold it because it was too friggin heavy and sit with the 6x10 for the res of their lives.

I've been looking into a Fender one because wheels and shit but I've gotta be wise with the $$$$ for now. Pretty happy with the 4x10 (not mine though lol) but do want more.

buy the squier. Rondo music is garbage.

I just got a bass from Rondo and I really enjoy playing it. It's a $150 violin bass, and it plays much better than the $350 Hofner ignition series
>>
>>61503239
I don't think I've ever seen a Digitech pedal in a ny store around here. I've seen their multiFX though.
Might try to look around.

>>61503364
>why the fuck does it have to be black?
because.
Autism more likely.
My first pedal was a used Fulltone Fulldrive-3 that some blues dentist was selling as cheap as a TS9, so, why not.
Then, I got a TC polytune in black and a little buffer box that was black too, completely withouth noticing it. Then a promotion on EHX stuff on a store, I bought a Good Vibes and The Silencer noise gate.
And that's when it clicked.
I just have to have a black pedalboard.
For a fuzz, I could buy a muffuletta, but seems too expensive for a fucking muff clone ("but muh multiple muff versions" blah).

The dark star seems crazy, but not so crazy at the same time. I can't make sense of the graphic, but sounds cool. I don't like how close the switches are though.

>>61503393
Yeah, I like it and find it versatile and unique enough.
Too bad it doesn't have reverse. Maybe with the TonePrint shit.
But I'm really worried about build quaility, mainly the switches.
I'm mainly just between the T2 and the Descent, with the Boss being an all around normie choice.
>>
>>61503807
you definitely have some sort of autism

I'm looking at chorus pedals.

What's the difference between a regular chorus and an analog chorus? I'm looking at the Joyo ones if that matters. The description for both of them says that they're supposed to sound like the CE-2, so what's the difference between regular and analog?

>>61504321
You can even double up guitars and tunings. You can literally play both parts to dust in the wind at the same time. You can split the low strings to a bass and the high strings to whatever the fuck else. You can play a 12 string. You can play a fucking 18 string, with piano tuning. Fuck my life I need one of these, fuck everything else how does this cost 800 dollars.
>>
>>61504163
I own a POD HD500x but no Variax sadly.

Trust me though, if they made a lefty model I'd go for it straight away, best live setup ever as I want to incorporate different tunings in without having to take 50 guitars.

>>61504621
The HD500x is an integral part to the Variax setup as it controls all the amps/FX/etc. You can also use a HD500 but it has less DSP to it so can't use as many FX or dual amps/stereo amps as effectively

It already comes with a bunch of models (modelled on real -life amps like Fender twins/Bogners/Mesas/etc) on it (you can buy a couple more if you wish, the Vox Ac30 is pretty fucking good.), but you can download other peoples patches they make with their instruments to save you having to set up your own amps + FX Chain. It's a great way to get to know the system.

Personally I think it's decent, it's definitely no Axe-Fx in terms of sound quality or flexibility but it's a fraction of the price and has mostly the same fuctions, it can be weird to dial in like most Line 6 products but there are a lot of guides out there. With the last major update they did last year it improved the system a lot.

I knew about modelers but this is just blowing everything else away. This is the future, I seriously think the only other guitar I would even own would be another variax with a different setup.

These things are a dream come true. I'm reading the instruction manual now. I could be sleeping, fuck it.

Kek, nice mental gymnastics. I never said it was bad. It's a great guitar but it doesn't hold a candle to the average Fender.
>>
>>61505124
Well they had a Variax bass but they discontinued it. I want one bad and they seem to be rare on the Used market for any good price. I guess we will just have to wait for the electronics to get cheaper and more powerful. I mean they discontinued it several years ago so its probably a lot easier to make now. Imagine being able to go from precision flats to a Rick...
>>
>>61505124
wait they already made a variax bass but it doesn't sound that good. Maybe it's that bass is harder or maybe I'm just wrong
>>
>>61503867
Get A CE-3, they were marketed as a stereo version of the CE-2, they don't sound the same but the CE-3 is still an analogue chorus, everyone shits on them so you can buy them used for dirt cheap too
>>
>>61505224
I know man just the idea of going from flats to rounds. Actually that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, I bet as far as hammer ons and stuff goes you can't really model it... Still why use rounds at that point. Might as well just model round growl and get flatwound fretting for free.

The main thing holding back variax guitars is Line 6's modelling is kind of crap compared to what's out there.

So how do you guys learn songs? Do you just listen to them and then try to mimick them, or do you try to find the notes for it?

I've got a few songs I'd like to try out, but I'm just a beginner so I can't really hear the notes and know what to play to get it sounding like it.
>>
>>61506107
start out with tabs and you'll get better at getting it by ear
>>
>>61506107
Mostly tabs, but sometimes I just stumble onto a song when I'm just improvising.
>>
>>61499321
Honestly, his phrasing is the most impressive thing about his work.
>>
>>61506107
I play bass and banjo. Started from classical training in piano, learned jazz, learned tab for basic rock/rhcp crap, learned more complicated tab, developed a good ear, can now play most things, mainly mad funky beats.

Now, I just figure out the main licks and notes, progressions, and general song structure the first couple listen throughs, then identify the unique variations of licks and fills, then nail down the rhythm. This is also how I transcribe stuff by hand. For more complicated stuff like 120+ bpm banjo solos, I slow them down by 70% and work it out note by note.

What are your practice schedules?
I want to take guitar more serious and need to come up with my own but don't know what to practice and how long for.
2 hours a day, 5 days a week is what I'm aiming for and I don't want to waste it like I have been.

>>
>>61507560

My band and I will have our first "show" this weekend, we're performing at an event to support local artists, and have three minutes.
We did practice a lot, again and again and again…
We're doing a cover of Jimi's "Foxy Lady".
When it comes to clothing, here's what we're thinking:
Drummer - black T-shirt and jeans
Bassist - same as drummer
First guitarist - white shirt, black jeans, black shoe and nice Jimi-style hat.
Second guitarist and singer (me) - just like the other guitarist but with black sunglasses instead of the hat.

What do you say? OK?
Or would I look too cocky wearing sunglasses in an indoor venue?
I thought about wearing them because then I wouldn't get blinded by the lights and I can hide my prescription glasses behind them…
>>
>>61507560
Classicalfag at uni here.
Generally I don't practice for more than 30-45 minutes at a time and do 3-5 sessions a day sometimes more, sometimes less - no point forcing it if it's not happening that day.

First session is usually (certainly if technique exam is looming) start with technical work as a warm up and to get fingers moving: scales and arpeggios with different fingering patterns and studies.

Next 2 or 3 sessions are working on current repertoire. What I do depends on where the pieces are at - run-throughs and finessing for pieces ready for performance, slow detailed work on newer pieces - working out fingerings and interpretation.

Any further time is spent practicing chamber parts individually and reading through potential new repertoire, or more practice on repertoire if a performance or assessment is near.

Practice is most effective if it is deliberate and concentrated, otherwise it is just mindless repetition.

Practice away form distractions: TV, PCs and phones - this way you can achieve as much in your 2 hours as in 5-6 hours of bashing away.

Remember: Practice doesn't make perfect - Practice makes permanent.
Make sure what you are doing is correct, no matter the speed, otherwise you are merely reinforcing the error.

I've had an Epiphone sitting in the corner of my bedroom for about four years now. I give it a dust every now and then but I've never cleaned it properly. I want to try learning guitar again so how would I go about getting it back to good condition?
>>
>>61508550
Change your strings, setup the trussrod+intonation and you should be good to go.
You can pay a tech to do it for you if you're lazy or scared to fuck something up, but unless you really force the trussrod without any care that shouldn't happen.
>>
>>61508550
Give it a wipedown and put some new strings on
>>
>>61508598
>>61508608
Thanks lads, recommended strings?

I have a BC rich mockingbird special...how do i get rid of it to buy a better guitar? i'm thinking of maybe getting an ibanez artcore but at the same time i really want an ML-2...thoughts?
>>
>>61508626
>>61508619
Rotosounds have an extra high E so that's pretty cool, personally I prefer d'Addarios, they're bright and last way longer than ernie ball since I have acidic sweat.
Plus they're cheap as hell and I need to shop at thomann to get roto, which adds in unnecessary shipping costs.
>>
>>61508651
What do you hate about it? Even though I don't like them they're alright guitars.
>>
>>61508651
Craigslist.
If you're thinking about hollowbody artcores, I heard they're pretty good for their value. I wouldn't recommend Chapman though, they're MiK in the same factory as Schecters/ESP LTDs, but tend to cost more because of that fat fuck.
>>
>>61508671
i just find the fret access a bit lacking, anywhere past the 12th fret on the G string and its too far for my hand to reach..might be because i also have a V with nice access
>>61508684
i used to have a really nice artcore, traded it for a V a few years back and really wish i hadnt
>>
How do I prog?
>>
>>61508778
take a genre and make it more complicated
>>
does anyone else play cheap old Harmony guitars?
i really like mine
>>
>>61508778
Older definition of prog is taking something and making it a bit more complex.
A more modern definition is making it more complex but also longer and boring.
Current day "prog" is just odd tempo with fancy scales and semi djent breakdowns to sell more.

/rant
>>
>>61508732
Ah Fair enough, yeah the fret axxess can be a deal-breaker.

Probably sell that thing on Craigslist or some local ad/guitar forum man.

As for another guitar look into used Schecters/ESP LTD 1000's/PRS SE's, you'll be getting a much better deal out of those than a Chapman. Never played the artcore so can't comment, but they seem good.

Hey guys I er.. Wrote a short piece for electric guitar. It's not yet finished, with a lot of mistakes here and there but.. Tell me what you think so far.

Start from 20s onwards.

I already did but the neck is warped and If I take off any more the lower frets will fret out. I don't mind really. I keep it in Open C# tuning for fingerstyle or slide blues stuff. The tension isn't too hard on the hands when it's that low
>>
>>61509245
I like it, reminds me of Codeine.

>>61509245
Prog/10
>>
>>61509316

What's Codeine? Looking back at this recording, there's quite a lot of mistakes and irregularities, but I'm gonna smooth it out and add some background sounds.
>>
>>61503867
I have the small clone and polychorus and while on one hand the tone is warm, the switches are noisy and performance can be temperamental. My friend has a tc electronic and while it suffers none of the abovementioned problems, the tone is disappointing.

Mine was $2150 AUD (about the same as CAD), but is not a custom.

I did get to play before I bought it, though and compare it to other basses (blew them all away)

>>61506433
You are a moron. The new Line 6 unit is easily up to par with the Snax Fx
>>
>>61510084
Supposingly the Helix has either 1/3rd or 1/3rd less DSP power than the axe fx. I'm guessing he was talking more about the POD.
>>
>>61510106
it's also 1k less leaving room for important things like food and underwear.

this is probably the fourth time we have this discussion but yeah, ridiculously well made instruments

if I buy the one I got to try in store it'll cost me about a grand less

shame though because I really want pic related
>>
>>61510631
True, I didn't know there was that much of a price difference between those two.
The Kemper's price is similar though, but I don't know which one has more power. All I know for sure is that the Helix has the footswitch built in for less than the Kemper+Footswitch.

is there any point in buying pedals new? It seems like I can buy most used for 50% off.

Alright. It's my first guitar and musical instrument, by the way. Do I just watch those YouTube vids on basic music theory and then get practicing?

>>61510906
get lessons.
>>
>>61510935
I lack the dosh. Are they that beneficial?
>>
>>61510981
Yeah but you can leave that for later, you could get started into chords, basic theory, scales and then step up to lessons.

There are a lot of great free resources online, Justin Guitar is one.
>>
>>61510981
The benefit of an instructor is that they can show you how badly you're fucking up and set you straight. They can help eliminate any bad habits you may have as well.

A good band

Your stuff is bit busier but the general feel reminds me of them.
>>
>>61510981
you can go without but as the others are saying, you can start playing with really bad habits that will be hard to un-learn in the long term. it's best to get lessons at the beginning, or at least 2-3 lessons to get a basic understanding on how to play and what not to do.
>>
>>61507932
>implying clothing matters at all

really it fucking doesn't, it never does. All that matters is the music you make, something that can be very helpful during your career is someone that understands what you want to achieve with your band but is willing to give criticism. The only mistake a band can really make is sound shit while thinking they sound good.
>>
Just put Elixir's on my Jazzmaster. Holy shit I should've done that a long time ago, they feel so smooth. Also, is it me or do Elixir's recuire less stretching?

Also you can become extremely mechanic to a degree of not having any musical creativity, flow or freedom.

That's what happened to me and until I attended a clinic I didn't fully realize it.

>>61507932
Are you doing it for /fa/ or /mu/ you pansy fag?

I wouldn't give a damn about clothing, I would just pick something that looks nice and most importantly is comfy and would not get in the way of my performance.

>>61497146
I posted here a day or two ago because of the setup of my cheapo Yamaha bass, I just wanted to say thanks for the advice /gg/, I let everything rest without any tension for the night and then followed the guide, everything is nice and playable again. I also found the perfect setting to get good sound out of it and my practice amp, marked the position on the poti-knobs and the body with a marker as well so I don't lose it.

>Also you can become extremely mechanic to a degree of not having any musical creativity, flow or freedom.

That's pretty much my case, there aren't lots of clinics where I am though.
It's infuriating when you're trying to jam with some people and the dude who's technically garbage is doing pretty good while you're lost trying to find what's going on.

Wouldn't the body being attached to the headstock fuck up your ability to adjust the neck when needed?

so, I've been playing bass and guitar about 3 years and suddenly my friend wants me to fill in on bass the weekend after next. There's gonna be one practice on sunday this week. There's a 14 song set list. To gigging bassists: what's the best way for me to memorize 14 songs in 5 days? I imagine the main thing is to know the progression. Any tips for what to do live if I forget something? Some of these songs are a bit tough, like locomotive breath. What's a good way to improvise a generic fill to help me stay in key when I forget a riff?
>>
>>61511447
That would literally be impossible for me. Unless these are really easy songs.
>>
>>61511447
>14 songs in 5 days
HAHA good luck
Keep one off to the side,
wander over occasionally,
better than fucking up.
>>
>>61511512
This makes me think

Is there a good tablet stand to use guitar pro with?
>>
>>61511456
lemme post the non-orginals. There's about 3 easy ones as far as I can tell. I shot the sheriff has a lot of variations on the original riff and rhythm, though they're easy this one might be trouble for memorization. BTW I have a job.

Still Raining - Johnny Lang (F)
La Grange - A - ZZ Top
Locomotive Breath - Tull - Em
Ways to Be Wicked - D - Lone Justice
One Horse Town - Am - Blackberry Smoke
I shot the Sheriff - Gm
Like a rolling stone - The Stones (C)
Young American - C - David Bowie
Santaria - Sublime (E)
Smoke on the water - Gm
-Bitch - Am, Stones
Born to be Wild - E

My favorite guitarists are.. Gary moore, Yngwie malmsteen, Slash, Steve Vai...
Ive never had much money, to buy the gear I wanted, I use a simple effect processor plugged into a cheap ass amp.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLIAa7WylNM and at 35:00 of this clip I play. That guitar was Cort, I dont remember the model.. the saddest thing about me, that I live in a country where people doesnt listen to guitars.. I love playing blues rock... but there are only 2 maximum bands in my city and they play hardcore stuff which Im not into in.. its a struggle I wont make it as musician unless I chose to compose songs for shitty phornogrhapic music of my country.. Hell they dont even speak english.. Ive always had the feeling of not belonging here... Greetings with the song I play, I messed up at few parts, but its still cheering me up.. at times when I dont have my electric one with me :(..
>>
>>61511577
>Young American - C - David Bowie
You can take a break when this comes up, the bass doesn't have a lot to do here.
>>
>>61511734
Sorry to hear that slav bro.

Even though I'm currently living in a third world craphole, there are some really decent musicians and a couple of mind blowing ones. Maybe you haven't found them yet? I used to believe there weren't many here.
>>
>>61511734
cyka blyat
>>
>>61511512
I hope they have one of these around. I guess that's the way to go though I'd be putting tabs on it, that just feels sad.
>>
>>61511787
Tabs are a valid way to learn songs, anon, don't get distressed over not being able to read sheet music.
>>
>>61511782
believe me I tried searching in 2 cities, they were mindblowing ones, but they already had a band and were middleaged men, they knew their stuff, I wonder how much they played together, I dont believe they would accept me :D
>>
>>61511827
If you become very good the different won't matter, a decent musician will like to jam with you.
Here everyone is very friendly and likes to talk about music, guitars and play.
>>
>>61511756
yeah seems like just octaves on the root. Real easy, but I think I might have to tune down for it. I haven't done that before. Shouldn't be a problem, clearly.
>>
>>61511814
Sheet music is super easy to read. It's just weird to translate stuff not written for guitar to guitar.
>>
How's the Korg TM-50?
>>
>>61511787
Don't hope, buy one on the cheap, saw one yesterday on clearance for less than 10 bucks.
Like I said better than fuckin' up.
I can read music and use tabs all the time, good to know both.
>>
Noob here again. There is a volume knob not only on the amplifier but also on the guitar. Do I keep one of them on max and adjust with the other knob or what?
>>
>>61511990
Do what sounds best to ur ears B^)
>>
>>61511990
Set them both to medium volumes then turn down the amp as needed. You want the guitar to be making it's own sound, not the amp overdriving it (don't set the guitar low and the amp high).
>>
>>61511990
You can use both, I set my amp at the highest gain song I'll be playing then roll the volume off on the guitar for lower gain /volume songs. It's a lot easier than screwing with the amp. Adjust the difference in volume using a volume pedal set in between. You can get a lot of different tones, just rolling the volume knob next to your finger.

Why can't I just get good? Anyone got some exercises to beat the bad out of me?

there's this one exercise I do that's helped my playing a lot, I think the pro's call it practise
>>
>>61512342
yeah just practice that shit to a tick

if you feel like you should have the dexterity to play these songs and have past achievements under your belt to corroborate that then it's not going to take you all that long

it's most likely that lamb of god tracks are written with scales/patterns that your muscle memory knows very well, and that mastodon parts aren't
>>

that i say is one of the hardest transitions when you start so no worries
