banjo player here but my question applies to guitars too

I have a normal scale banjo and a short scale (parlor size) banjo, its about 6 inches shorter than the standard length instrument. I'm using the same gauge strings on both instruments. Do I need to tune the shorter instrument higher proportional to its length in order for the intonation to be correct?
When i tune both banjos in G (traditional bluegrass tuning) the strings on the short banjo seems so loose it isn't much fun to play, so tension is definitely affected if they are tuned to the same tones
Should I be using different strings for shorter scale instruments? or tuning it higher? or anything of that nature? I'm kind of a noob when it comes to string instruments so pardon me if this is blatantly obvious to you guitarists

Shorter scale needs higher tension of course. Use thinner strings or else you might find it difficult to play
>>
>>61880640
I think his point was that guitars and bass guitars are both included under the umbrella term "guitar" and therefore need not be specifically mentioned

I can say however that playstyle differences between six string guitar and bass guitar are tremendous, and no six string player should just assume they can also play bass because it shares the same string tuning with fewer strings. Bass lines as used in music are very different than the low notes of the guitar parts.
>>
>>61880744
Shorter scale length will result in less tension in the same tuning. Tuning higher or using thicker strings will alleviate the problem. Other things tonally are affected as well, but that's the jist of it. Being six inches shorter I'd be tuning up.

The string tension calculator in the OP can be a rough guide if you know the exact scale length of your instruments. Scale length is why I use 13-62 on my Les Paul, and 12-60 on my Ibanez in the same tuning.

I'm mostly just bitter that GC has run almost every other small time music outfit out of town. If people want musical instruments, they go to guitar center, unfortunately.
They've even driven great manufacturers into the ground by demanding high production and low prices if they want to sell at GC, which is the only game in most towns.

sure its ok if what you want is mass produced crap like launchpads and boss effects pedals. But good instruments are made in small numbers by hand and cost what they're worth.

But seriously the staff acts like retards. They will up-sell anything in the store you make any hint at possibly being interested in. I once bought bass strings at GC not knowing exactly what I wanted or needed and the staff member literally said "these are the best strings in the house, I use them personally" to every box i pointed at. like I somehow forgot the conversation we'd been having.

yeah I've been to a Sam Ash and it was legit.
I played their electric drums and their 5k keyboards, I even bought one of those keyboards. Their salespeople know about their instruments too, and they have weekly sessions in store after hours. I moved a long way away from any Sam Ash and I do miss it

compared to Sam Ash, GC is pretty fucking far from OK

that being said Sam Ash is definitely not a small music outfit, and is doing the same damage to small time outfits and instrument manufactures that GC is, but that may just be an unavoidable result of economics of scale.

I'm leaning towards the Jackson for slightly better spec, but I love the finish and maple board of the Charvel, also its oldschool-ness.

so, quick review and first impression on this bass I just received

model is Schecter Diamond P Plus, sunburst with maple neck version (there's a black gloss/rosewood one also)

paid 500 USD for it, used, which amounted to roughly 850 CAD with conversion and customs fees. I would have paid 400 bucks more for it if I ordered it new. I consider myself lucky because it's in mint condition and 99% like new. only needs a minor setup.

first things first, this motherfucker is long for a 34" scale. from bottom of body to top of headstock this thing is a centimeter longer than my 35" Skyline 55-02. might not fit in some gig bags. I have no fender to directly compare it to but I'm pretty sure it's longer than those.

one of the knobs (the pickup selector one) is plastic, whereas the other 3 are metal. the diamond brushed pattern on them is not the same, also. I don't know if the model is made like that or if it was swapped out by the previous owner.

there are zero visible flaws on this thing. great construction quality for a korean bass. look and feel is equivalent to a MiA Fender and I am 100% serious. I can't tell you how the neck holds up until I've used it for a few weeks though.

the machine heads are the most sensitive ones I've ever used. all 4 respond exactly the same and have no leap spots though so that's cool.

tone is good but not 100% what I wanted out of it. the SMB-4D humbucker is punchy as hell and a bit metallic sounding due to being closer to the bridge than MM standard. the SPB-3 split coil sounds fuller and more modern than any split coil I've tried. very good, but not much puffy vintage treble to it.

in parallel the pickups give a sweeter, less bright humbucker tone, which I much prefer to the bridge position.

in series it sounds a bit like a passive PJ with both pickups at full volume, plucking somewhere in between. probably my favorite of the 4 states.

the 2 band eq is nice to have but as far as active bass eq's go, it doesn't do much.
>>
>>61885425
overall, I'm positively surprised by this and would recommend the DIamond line of basses to anyone. especially if you can find a used one in good condition. don't blindly buy Schecter though because the Stilettos suck in my opinion.
>>
Who hyped for NAMM here? Anything to watch out for lads?
>>
>>61885550
I didn't buy anything during the sales in hope Ibanez releases some cool new models, or even the new Tosin Abasi sig.
It also might be cool to see the John Petrucci amp from Mesa, although I'm not expecting much from it.
Otherwise there'll be the new strandberg bass.
I think I covered everything in the meme prog range.
>>
If I wanted a SSS guitar with a pickguard, should I get the Fender American Strat or a Carvin Bolt?

The bolt seems so much better in every aspect, price, locking tuners, SS frets, carved heel. Not sure how the pups fare though, but that can be changed easily.
>>
>>61885266
Ok opinionated asshole who posts a trans-burst flame top.
>>
>>61885014
I love them actually. I am a giant fan of the JB in bridge. I did like the original ones more at bedroom volumes, but when playing at small gig volume at practice everything seemed kinda muddish with the gibsons. I had a JB in bridge with my last 3 guitars and end up missing it every time.

Instead of going with the classic jazz pickup in neck I regret not trying the 59 earlier. It's not so overbearingly loud and bassy compared to the jazz so it plays very nice in clean with my Analogman compressor.

>>61885053
Not a meme sorry. The Gibsons just get muddy with the amp+pedals I use when playing loud. I liked it more at bedroom level though, but alas.

>>61885265
It did have the 500T/496R stock. With my rig it actually wasnt too noisy (Fulltone OCD boosted with a EQD Talons in front of a AB165 modded Bassman 100 head), but I do a lot of heavily crunched cordy things. So it just didn't have the articulation I like when playing loud. Sounded great out of my 10 watt Vox at home though. If only there was a way to swap pickups in under 5 minutes so I could have both without buying another guitar.

Imp, Feel over spec. You still get legit Duncan's in the charvel anyway.
>>
>>61884549
do trills with the index and the pinky. it helps.

make sure your curving the pinky and using the finger tip though, don't do that stupid flat-stiff-pinky thing so many people do. try and stop yourself from lifting your pinky away from the fretboard and straightening it out (some people call it the tea-drinking-pinky).

it will become second nature after a while to just use it. it took me a few months of really paying attention to my pinky to get it to work correctly.

Changing gauges can cause fret buzz. Go back to the smaller gauge, or raise the saddle by putting a single piece of paper as a shim under it. It will raise it by .003.

>>61887419
Keep learning chords, and how to construct them in different keys. Then learn about the guitarist's best friend, the minor pentatonic scale. From there learn the blues scale, and then the major scale and the seven modes.
>>
>>61887276
True, although it has AVRI pickups/electronics over the standard MIM JMs. The bridge is also a curiosity, it's a bit nicer than than the standard mustang bridge.


I bought it used. It's very nice though, the neck/fret work is as good as I've ever had.

other anon here, but kinda on the same with the one you replied

how do you mean constructing chords in different keys?
i know the basic on what a chord is, root, 3rd, 5th, etc and how basic chord progressions work, I-IV and so on
>>
>>61887827
Right, so, what I mean by chord construction is you should know what defines the quality of a given chord and thus how to build it. Like, what essentially makes a minor chord different from a major chord? When would you use a dominant 7th chord, and what makes that different from a major 7th chord? Then learn how, when, and where to add extensions like 9ths, 11ths, and 13ths.

This will help you get beyond the basic I-IV-V progression and into ii-V-I, which is the building block of jazz and once you can play that shit proficiently you can play with anyone.

I haven't read all of them, but Govan's "Creative Guitar - Vol. 1" has a pretty good theory primer in the beginning. The book that helped me a lot theory-wise was Mel Bay's "Getting Into Jazz Fusion Guitar". There's a great explanation of scales and modes in the beginning. Otherwise, buy a copy of "The Real Book" and just learn to play some of the chords in there. That's basically how I learned all my 7th chords and progressions.

Deluxe - ash body, best finish, noise canceling pickups. Nice guitar but probably not worth the money unless u get a deal.
Special- cheaper finish, different pickups and hardware from the Am. std. Good alternative.
Standard- your regular everyday start. Best place to start.
Classic- usually a re-issue but without the name or resale value. Body contour may be sharper, usually custom shop pickups and neck profile may be period correct. Just get a standard and buy the CS pickups separately.
Modern- no idea.

>>61888056
That's a killer price for a killer amp. Dunno about the pedal stuff though.

for scales, this is most comprehensive book.

for chords, Chord Master has a section devoted to genres (jazz, funk, rock, etc) and is by far the best chord book I've read. its breakdown of theory is easy to understand and well-articulated

Recessed Floyds are better man. And besides, you can unrecess (just put something in that blocks it from going down) a recessed floyd, but you can't do the opposite.

I don't think you should recommend a professional setup. There's nothing special a pro can do that anyone can't do with enough patience. In my opinion anything that doesn't qualify as repair should be done at home.

It's a good way to find out if it needs it . It may need a fret leveling. So yeah, paper, smart ass. Otherwise he'd have to replace the saddle with a taller one. It makes a decent shim in the meantime. I was waiting for him to reply.

All depends on what you want. Don't get squier unless its a classic vibe (or a standard if its your first guitar).

>Standard
Is the modern design that comes with the modern neck profile, radius, medium jumbo frets, etc.

>Deluxe
Typically has noiseless pickups(complete shit imo) and, on strats, an extra push-pull knob that lets you get extra pickup configs. Often has gold hardware and special finishes.

>Special
Means just about anything. If you are referring to American Specials, they have Texas Special pickups (not good to my ears), oversized 70's headstock, jumbo frets, and the tone knob functions differently

>Classic
Usually some combination of vintage specs with some modern adjustments, but sometimes just a re-issue kind of guitar. Usually has vintage frets, vintage radius, etc. 50's will have maple fretboards, 60's will have rosewood usually, stuff like that. Often has pickups that are "vintage voiced".

>Modern
The modern designs with more modern improvements and non-traditional pickup configurations.

My old setup. 92 MiM I bought from a hippie when I was 15. First guitar. Swapped pickups and pickguard for stuff I pulled from a pile at my local shop. Perfect beater guitar that has its own sound from the random pickups and being strung lefty. Crate V18 2x12. First tube amp. Got it for $100 and had it for a few years. Had a bassy sound that I was always fighting to brighten up. Also a Yamaha keyboard and old football.

Think about that. It's an absurd statement.

>>61889454
there isn't

I just had an argument with this fucking loser on another site about this, there is literally nothing a setup from a shop entails that you can't get with some reading, watching, and spending about $100 at Stewmac

Because your string is still pulling no matter what bridge you're on, they're just flat better for keeping tune and intonation if you play hard

I don't get it man. When did you transform from diy to professional? hint: it's when you started getting paid. Anyone can fix their guitar because anyone can learn. What makes me say it doesn't take a professional is that it doesn't take long enough to learn and do that it justifies outsourcing the labor. Just like a professional tailor, there's no reason other than laziness to not do it yourself.
>>
>>61890156
I've done BYOC stuff before to save $, but pedal parts are pretty much all chinese now because there isn't a reason for them not to be and as a result BYOC through a company that offers it ends up being cheaper than ordering the parts yourself.

The downside is if you want stuff like those Devi Ever joystick pedals, you probably won't be able to find stuff like it.

I get what you're saying but pros have the experience and the equipment. You might learn to setup your guitar by yourself eventually, but if you're fiddling with shit you don't know, you could end up trashing an expensive instrument in the process.

Luckily I'm not an idiot, so I can actually read instructions before I aimlessly guess what a truss rod does. It's that high school education at work I guess. I realize some people don't understand the order of operations there, that you should learn before you try anything rather than try everything to learn, but those people probably can't buy their own groceries either. Sure, you'll make some mistakes, but not enough to outweigh the cost of paying a professional for more than a couple guitars.

>>61892546
"Jazzy" usually sounds like you just rolled off the tone knob on your guitar. And also a flatter EQ.
>>
>>61892546
AC15 will always be midrangey and will compress/distort easily. For jazz, the scooped mids and headroom of a fender pro reverb or twin reverb sounds far better to my ear. Polytone is also a good option if you dont mind solid state.

>>61889126
Yes, absolutely. It's worth knowing at least the seven modes of the major scale: that knowledge will make you a much better improviser. It's especially useful to be able to improvise with different scales over different chords, as opposed to the same minor pentatonics over I-IV-V progressions. I would actually say that understanding which scales to use under specific chord changes is the essence of fusion, and what really separates it from jazz (which emphasizes rhythm just as much as melody).

It's entirely possible to learn these things without becoming a "fusion player" exclusively. Check out Tom Monda's work in Thank You, Scientist or Guthrie Govan's work with Steve Wilson. I don't think anyone would consider their music "fusion" but they certainly borrow musical ideas from that idiom and use them to great effect.

Aside from ALL of that, knowing the theory behind it will make communicating musically much easier, and you'll be able to work with a wider variety of musicians.

Turn it down and mic it through the PA maybe.

>>61892767
Yup. Depends what youre doing. For clean sounds, jazz, pedal steel, etc there are some great options. For overdriven sounds, not so much. Too square wavey and harsh sounding. A pro reverb will do both, and of course this is the one that fender decides not to reissue. You can get a 70s silverface for arou d 1k usd

This is a musical theory question.

So I'm working on a song right now and the chord progression, and I found that a chord that's out of key still sounds great, despite being out of key. The progression is Emaj Amaj Dmaj Bmaj.

I can't find any key that has all these chords, but it still sounds nice. Is there an explanation as to why they sound good together?
>>
guitar is too hard. you need too much natural talent to be good

>this fag still posts
>>
>>61893678
and this doesn't apply to every instrument?

>>61893649
3/4 are in E maj, so i'd assume the D is a borrowed chord, i just don't know how it fits
>>
>>61893710
What about Dmaj? A major and E major are the keys I'm thinking of here. A major has B and D, but the B is supposed to be a minor. E major doesn't even have a D note in it.
>>

You can still see all the little bumps and dings, which is what I was going for initially... however, there are a lot mroe of them than I had anticipated, so I'm considering completely sanding it all back to get an even finish but then the guitar won't look old and beaten to shit. (The whole point is to re-vamp my first guitar without removing the premise that my first guitar got abused to hell and back)

Oh shit that's cool how you figured that out (I'm not being sarcastic, I never looked at it like that). I need to read up on a lot more musical theory. Thanks for the help dude.
>>
>>61894321
Actually, it may be more correct to call it E major with a borrowed chord from E Mixolydian

>>61894462
The tonic note is E. You can feel how the progression wants to end back on E major, especially because of the V chord at the end of the progression

Fuck me, I meant borrowed chord from E minor

I was under the impression that borrowed chords only worked with the major/minor of a key. Like, if you had E major you could only borrow from E minor. Is there a musical theory explanation as to why I could borrow from E Mixolydian? Or can you borrow from any key's respective modal scales?

Okay, I restrung my Ibanez RG2550 and tried that weird Karnivool tuning (BF#BF#BE, so, open Bm tuning) and I gotta say I have mixed feelings. Playing chords is a shitton of fun but I have no idea how to properly play soli with this tuning or open tunings in gerneral. Is there some kind of learning kurve with open tunings or do I have to get my lazy ass to learn scales?

>>61895032
>That body finish/pickguard combo
Absolutely lovely! It's really a shame you hardly ever see a non-custom-shop guitar with this design.
>>
>>61895352
Alright, thanks for the help man! Although it technically wasn't the correct answer (the guy who said E major with borrowed chord from E minor got it), it made me look up a bunch of stuff on the modal scales and it's pretty cool.
>>
>>61882151
no where else to buy cause they've driven competition out. BRAVO
>>
>>61893649
The simple explanation is notes that aren't within the key you are playing in can still sound good. The only note you have in any of those chords that isn't in the key of E Major is D natural. Without actually playing it, I would assume it sounds good because normally the 7th that would be D#-F#-A, a tension/leading chord, is probably made to be less tense by flatting the root, allowing you to go back to Bmaj before resolving back to 1. Essentially, by shift that one note, you can retain some of the the tension from using the D# diminished while still creating tension that is resolved nicely by going up a whole tone from the fifth of Dmaj (A) up to your next root of B, then using the strong V-I to bring it back home strong.

So it builds nicely going from Emaj to Amaj - I-IV

Then builds up a bit of tension going form Amaj to Dmaj, but not too much since you stay with a major chord that only has one flatted note.

Then the 5th of that Dmaj helps you move into a Bmaj because moving up a whole tone from the 5th of a chord is a standard movement that sounds solid.

Lastly, having the V-I is typically the most "powerful" or "complete" resolution that creates `a strong sense of finality.

I could be wrong, I just started learning this stuff a few months ago so if anybody else has a different take or I am mistaken, feel free to throw it out.

wood stain.
I didn't build the body myself, I would never use three different coloured bits of wood (not even the same amount of wood for each part) and then coat it in 3mm thick poly, jackson did.

I'm working to make it look nicer, but the stain takes ages to set in.

Hey guys, I have a Fender Deville 410 amp, and it's extremely bassy to the point where my guitar sounds really muddy if I do a fingerpicking thing on the lower strings, I've literally turned the bass all the way down but it's not enough.
I have a guitar with a high pass switch and it gets almost manageable with the high pass on and the amp bass at 0, but not quite...
It also sounds a bit worse with the high pass on so I'd rather not use it...
Do I need to get an EQ pedal?

I don't understand the mass amount of different scales. I understand them in theory and also how modes work, but I don't get why there's so many different kinds.

I have a book with loads of scales and chords in it for reference, but the scale diagrams are different compared to just being major scale shapes with the root notes changes up and down the fretboard. Do I need to learn these?

I'm trying to find a picture of what I mean, but there's so many different shapes and diagrams it's hard to explain.
>>
>>61895894
What do you mean? Does it sound too bassy for your taste or is there something wrong with the amp?
>>
>>61896410
I don't know if it's supposed to sound like that on the low strings, I sounds good on lower volume this is a bit cranked for practice with a band
>>
>>61896190
they are all just for certain flavors. you don't have to learn more obscure ones unless you want to.
>>
>>61896190
Scales are just ways of organizing notes. I doubt most guitars players, even many professionals, know more than 15 or so anyway. Learn what you need to learn in order to make the kind of music you want to make. Different styles of music demand different skill/knowledge sets.

Once you get beyond the modes of the major and minor scales, most scale names are just simple descriptors of the ones you know already but with small changes, like "Lydian #5". That pretty much tells you what you need to know about the scale but some background knowledge on how to construct a Lydian scale is required.
