Either way I have to put a few mroe layers of stain on it. All the little dinks and bumps appeal to me because I can remember making most of them back when i first started playing guitar.
I have a feeling once my saw file arrives I'll make some adjustments anyway, pic related is the belly cut, which looks a lot shittier when stained. follow up pic coming now
Well I was going off the sound I get off my 20w orange crush, which produces "that sound" I was looking for, so the logical choice (if money isnt an issue) would be an even larger orange with MOAR POWER.
someone asked me before "what radio songs can you play?"
Just played the four axis of awesome chords, y'know the ones, then proceeded to half assed sing a couple of generic songs with those four chords and said "it doesnt take much skill to play that sort of stuff, as you just saw"
funnily enough he started playing guitar after that and is now pretty decent, though he sticks to acoustics only. Doesn't stop the bastard from using mine whenever he pops over for a visit.
this shows just how different the colour of the wood is on the front.
If the fender deville anon is still here, have a tech check the screen grid resistors and the solder joints around them. Also the tube socket solder joints. I'd wager a power tube or screen grid resistor died (this also typically fries the tube) and you're running on one power tube.
>screen grid resistors
>new set of matched tubes (JJ 6L6 or sovtek 5881 for that amp)
>biasing (assuming 425ish plate voltage, plate current should be 25-30mA per tube)
doesnt show up on that picture, I would leave it natural if it were not for the fact that the middle slab of wood has a fuck ugly grain on it, looks like that nasty ply shit the tech teacher would make us use.
I wouldn't mind if the models sounded different from the originals, since different isn't really bad, but they actually sound pretty spot on. So it's got the added bonus apart from sounding good of being able to try out amps used by bands you like. Also it's a lot easier to figure out a good tone by just copying someone exactly than coming up with your own solution. Pretty future proof specs.
you gotta appreciate this marketing. Way better than most amps having some shit poetry about their amp's brown sound. Even though there are some giveaways that make the modeler differentiable, it sure sounds good.
What's your NAMM wishlist?

You've reminded me that I have a pointy guitar I've been neglecting. Got it for $20 off a pillhead.
time to turn it into the smooth explorer your matured soul wants it to be
just posting pretty guitars
if FLCL sig Rickenbacker got made I would shit myself. Best case scenario: It has the motor and is a budget version.
>implying the 4003 isn't already an overpriced budget guitar
Nah the warrior stays as is and will only be used for country chickenpickin, but that fucking flametop! What is this? I didn't think they put nashville bridges on the really high end ones.
Seems legit. Its no older than 2014 judging by the frets.
I remember you. Here's a guitar.
no idea sorry anon, I save a lot of guitars and remember so few.
>these SGs tho
your mum's sock drawer
>this guy again
The bridge not the tailpiece. Thats the nashville bridge, not the abr-1. They usually stick the vintage style abr on high end stuff because vintage I guess. You won't see a nashville bridge on the custom/historic lines. Just seems like a really nice top for it not to be.
but now how can we have inside jokes
The bridge pickup is angled backward.
theyre great, huh anon
its vital to the manga's story progression, just as boobies are in animes.
My brain is apparently whats backward
that's fair enough anon.
ROFL you don't have to apologize to everybody in the thread jesus
They're one of the gear world's best kept secrets, I try not to mention them too much because I don't want the price to go up...
Really high quality for the price, they came out of the Matsumoku factory and were pretty well built. Similar Ibanez's that came out for the same factory sell for $2000+.
They're not gonna make tube amps anymore
it was obvious
pic very related.
I just couldnt stand the body shape priginally, it dug into me like the 16yo edge did back in the day
>Similar Ibanez's that came out for the same factory sell for $2000+
which ones? The only Ibanez guitars I know that are similar to that one are the Musician series and they're not nearly that high
Frets need to be edged. Its like playing a cheese grater
>That St Vincent Sig
fuck me I want that thing so bad.
Yeah I was thinking of the musician series. They get up there depending on the model
Probably on the autism spectrum. Has put out a lot of random noodling and jam sessions. Has also released some absolute gems. I can give you a short list of his great albums if you're interested?
>screen grid resistor
I've had more of these blow on me than fucking tubes over the years.
My main issue with Helix is that it has a third the DSP power of an AxeFX II but costs the same as a mint used example.
Unfortunately you're paying for things like the screen, rather than actual processing power.
>I can give you a short list of his great albums if you're interested?
Please and thank you.
I just bought my first jazz bass, a.m.a. reddit.
Decoding The Tomb Of Bansheebot
Crime Slunk Scene
Hold Me Forever
Heaven Is Your Home
In no particular order, but I'd start with Electric Tears or Colma. Bansheebot, Albino Slug, and Crime Slunk Scene are some faster albums, rest are relatively mellow and at times depressing.
All are good options, Jazz Basses kick ass. Personally I like a nice nitro finish. Dig the color on this one, but I gotta get the poly finish off of it. Thinking maybe Olympic White, Shell Pink, or Seafoam Green. Not sure which I like most. All would be accompanied by a change to a tortoise shell pickguard.
Played this one at CME last time I was there. 63 Jazz in Candy Apple Red. Was super nice. Retardedly expensive, but super nice. Wonderfully resonant, even unplugged, and just growly and punchy when amped.
I've seen so many posts lately from people who have been to CME. Do y'all live in Chicago? I live in the Jefferson Park area and go up to CME pretty often. Anyone here involved in the improv scene? It's pretty kick-ass.
Yeah, I was actually wondering if that Rascal Bass fender released a year or two is any good? love the look of it and the sounds i've heard in videos seem awesome.
but back on topic, would you reccomend a high end squier or a low tier fender one? like which edges out which? I'd be looking at a placid blue if I got finish, maybe an olympic white with a tort guard
That bridge makes me so sad. Honestly do what I did senpai, it sounds amazing. If you don't want to do fret work you can wait for the Andromeda series to come out with new finishes. Seymour Duncans really nail the classic fender tone.
I live in Chicago, yep. Go to school up in Wisco, and the scene up there is doodoo. All people who want to play top 40 type BS or br00t4l shit. Just wanna find some people for a blues-rock/doom/stoner band that I can play guitar in, or something in the vein of Jamiroquai if I'd be on bass. Would be great. CME is awesome, though, isn't it? Wonderful store, great atmosphere. The wall of Paul always gets me to half-chub.
I know absolutely nothing about the Rascal. However, I'd go for the low-end Fender if you absolutely can't save money for an older American standard (can get down to 600 or so on Reverb from time to time, regularly below 1k) or American special. I'd grab either the best MIM or MIA Fender you can find, and then just get a solid setup and fret dress, and it'll treat you well. Oly White or LPB and a tort guard are never a bad combo. Dot or block inlays? Maple or rosewood board?
Maple if placid, rosewood if white
dots on rosewood, blocks on maple
If I did get the squier, would new pups be something to look at? I've never really be into swapping pickups out since part of the reason I buy a guitar is how it sounds stock.
Im probably gonna butcher this, but How do I find the notes on a guitar per fret (similar to the image) if the guitar is tuned to open D? Im trying to make a bassline (in E standard) for my friend by finding the roots to all the chords and having him play them on his bass, but im gaving difficulties finding out the notes for an open D tuned guitar
Decent. Pickups combined with a setup and fretwork would also make the Squier a bit more viable. Consider Seymour Duncan or Lollar for great pickups.
Also, it's not at all like lower-end stuff like Squier is unplayable, it's just that a nicely set-up American Fender just has a really nice feel to it. Maybe it's just my rampant consumerism influencing how I experience the thing, but I really like my old '78 neck and Am. Std. body on the Jazz. Just feels right. Combined, as you said, with good pickups (Duncan Antiquities), it makes for a wonderful playing and sounding bass.
never had an america, but I have a MIJ fender, and a VM Squier Jag. anything actual fender is something I consider fancy. Didn't have much range back in my old city, but since I moved i've been entertaining the idea of more stuff.
Where should I look to find bridge and pickup covers btw? I know some people hate them but i'm kinda a fan. Also how much would a pickup swap cost me?
Yeah, but it's more of a blues-rock thing because that was the kind of music the house band was doing (it's actually been a couple years since I've done any jazz gigs, although that could be changing soon). Probably my best solo here starts at 13:02, over T. Rex's "Bang a Gong". Venue is Carol's Pub in Andersonville (which still hosts an open jam from 9 pm - 4 am on Wednesdays).
I swear I'm not over 40.
Guitar is my VM Jazzmaster through my Egnater Rebel 20.
I need a better amp
Totally forgot about MIJ Fender stuff. That is also super well-crafted stuff, wouldn't hesitate to buy. Considering an MIJ Jazzmaster, actually. Definitely consider American, though. Reverb and eBay (moreso Reverb) are great options for finding gear. If your current city has good shops, definitely go there too, as trying before you buy is always reassuring. Bridge and pickup covers can be bought all over the place, lots of companies make em. Allparts is good:
A pickup swap shouldn't be too expensive. My local repair place does it for $50, with 5 bucks more per additional pickup. I know I could do it myself, but I haven't soldered in ages and am lazy, so if I ever need it done I will likely go to them. I assume it shouldn't be too much more for you, unless your local shop likes to jew people.
i thought that was a pink dildo on your table senpai
cool, listening to "Blues After Hours" right now, love that song. Sounds good man.
Yeah I mostly play in free jazz/improv setting haven't played anything even remotely close to blues in years haha.
Lololol I was wondering if anyone was gonna notice that. I looked at the pics after and realized that the odd little Christmas elf does have a rather phallically-shaped hat.
Nice strat/dog combo, btw. Dig the two tone burst. Had one exactly like that but sold it to fund the repair of the 12 string you can see in the corner there. Retardedly expensive.
Whaddaya play your strat through?
Nice. Definitely give some Jazzes a whirl. Such nice basses. With the Jazz and the Rick, all I am really left wanting is a Warwick Streamer, tone and aesthetics-wise. Preferably an active 5 string model, with a P/J config. Versatile as shit, and so purdy. Pic related except for finish, would want natural woodgrain
Yeah, that's what I'm trying to do again right now. I used to do a lot of jazz and free improv gigs around Chicago before I moved further away from the downtown area. I just joined a band a few months ago and I'd like to get the drummer and bass player to form a sort of fusion trio side project for gigs in my current neighborhood.
What's the bass? Looks interesting. Same deal with the second guitar, the black one, don't know what that is off-hand either. Also, that's a really pretty color on the Studio. A nice family photo, anon. About to get an Orange tomorrow. Found an OR15 on the Chicago CL w/ an Avatar 2x12 cab w/ greenbacks in it for 450. Came buckets at the thought, the SG is gonna fucking rip with that thing.
Also: What exactly is holding you back from grabbing a strat? Seems like you could afford it if you saved for a bit
Whatever happened to SGcuck? I like to think he went out in a murder/suicide of his family.
The bass, honestly, I have no fucking clue. I've searched high and low online but I could only find the name of a 5 string variant. Its made by "vintage".
The black one is an old vox sdc 33.
That amp sounds tasty, not heard of Avatar cabs before though, its got greenbacks though so it should make your Sg scream. As for not getting a stratocaster, well, I had one just over a year ago but sold it, didn't do it for me.
I hadn't heard of that make either, but I came to the same conclusion after I saw what it was loaded with. And the OR15 is just awesome, like all the other low/mid-low end Orange stuff. I am most stoked, can't wait to bother the neighbors/whole block tomorrow afternoon.
Looks like the shape on the bass is pretty interesting, though. Same with the top. Get it second-hand somewhere?
And yeah, my strat wasn't my favorite either. I think I just didn't have the right one. Was poly finish, had noiseless pickups, and a maple board. I think Duncans or Lollars, a nitro sunburst, and a rosewood board would make for a strat I liked a bit more. Really like Frusciante's '63 here. What was yours like?
I think that's another anon, I don't see how sgcuck could get permission to buy the based tweedy sg.
I'm not even into sgs and I like that one. I'm more of a LP guy when it comes to Gibsons.
The Tweedy SG is fucking sweet. So is his siggy Martin 0-15, real nice sounding/playing.
I like LP's a ton, but I can't fucking bring myself to spend so much on a guitar. I got my beat-ass '69 SG Std for $1200 at a local shop. I don't think you could find an LP Std, new or vintage/used, for anywhere near that. They just retain their value hardcore, or so it seems. Saw this one at CME (the one in the middle) and fell for it, but it was some stupid price in the neighborhood of 3 grand. Gorgeous looking and sounding instrument, though.
post some clips when you get your orange.
pic related is the strat I had, noiseless pups, completely useless tremelo, sticky fender shaped neck. my main issue was that the action couldnt go any lower without completely ruining the guitar and intonation, was beautiful for slide though.
I think a nitro-finished red strat with a humbucker in there, no silly trem and a rosewood board would be the strat for me. Mind you I have never tried an actual telecaster.
In most peoples' case I don't think it is an issue of technical aptitude, or lack thereof, but of laziness. I know, 100 percent, that I could swap out a pickup myself. Easy. I just don't want to destring my guitar, pull it apart, do all the soldering and throw it back together. I'd rather just pay a shop. No shame in that, I think. Nor is there in doing it yourself. All a matter of preference, I'd say.
I spent $10 on mine because 15W sucks ass to work with. 40W has made my life easier.
But yes >>61904420 , listen to this >>61904969 guy and do your own pickup swap. You won't break the pickup and good pots are cheap. You also get that next level of personalization to your guitar. I took a $75 craigslist guitar and gave it new pickups and turned it into a broadcaster for maybe $225 for everything. It was my first real project too, and now i love the thing
Ah yes, mine had the sticky gloss neck too, another point against it. If I were you I'd try putting your own together, w/ Warmoth parts. Can generally get a far better guitar than what Fender mass-produces, and (generally) at a price point way below than what you'd pay for a Fender w/ the specs you want. I am considering doing that when I eventually get a Strat, just so I can spec out all the shit that's on the instrument and have exactly what I want.
If you've got the money to throw away that's cool
>My local repair place does it for $50, with 5 bucks more per additional pickup.
That's actually a great deal. I would also probably have someone else install it. All the shops around here charge a minimum of $60 per pickup.
Any reason you like nitro over poly?
The SG shape complements a solid paint job way better than a clear one.
I really hope you don't end up working until you die with that attitude anon. I know this is /gg/ which is a place to waste money and congratulate people on their purchases, but I feel like I should mention stuff like this every now and then. Luckily some other anons with diy pedal experience gave been posting recently too.
/mu/si/ck/ represent. Feels good saving more money than you spend guys. No guilt.
That's how I generally justify it. I never go out to eat, don't drink @ bars, don't really have any expenses past rent and bills. I pretty much use any money I make past that for funding gear/bike/computer purchases. And yeah, that shop is great beyond just the pricing. They do GREAT refinishing work (and cheap, was quoted 400 for a total body+neck refin and light relic [to match the old neck] on the Jazz Bass in a nitro custom color), and their setups/fret dresses are amazing. Just got back my 335 copy that I hadn't played in years due to dropping it and fucking up the headstock/G+B tuners. Gave them the guitar, two replacement tuners, and $110 bucks and 2 days later it plays far better than when I got it, frets and fretboard look gorgeous, and it has 6 working tuners. Love that place
My LP studio, er, I mean student edition, cost me £590. Look for B stock ones, mine was reduced £250 for a wee mark on the back.
I would've preffered it with a black pickguard, maybe a matte finish. mmmmmm
I've thought about doing that... but if I think about it hard enough I come to the conclusion that I'd rather a custom LP shape over a strat shape, just personal preference i guess.
My hands sweat like a peadophile in mothercare, with poly finishes I get nasty NEET marks all over it, but all I need do is wipe down the LP with a cloth and the marks vanish.
>that and it smells like delicious marshmallows
I can totally see where you're coming from. I feel like it's laziness combined with a lack of experience that's holding me back from doing work like that myself.
I think that once I get my other pickup for my SG put in, I will put the T-tops that were in it into another guitar myself. I'd like to at least be able to do setup/intonation/electronics work myself, I just need to get to it. Your work on the Jazz you got was certainly inspiration to do some myself.
it's like a 15 year old acoustic amp. It actually had a really nice sound to it, but it was pretty difficult to dial in and it doesn't take pedals for shit.
Has a nice built in reverb and chorus though
That's the thing, the Studios aren't really my cuppa, ya know? If I got an LP, I'd want a Page-esque one. Binding, faded or dark cherry sunburst, flamey top, non-weight relieved. Those are the ones that all the middle aged men love, though, and consequently Gibson continues to charge gazillions of dollars for them, as does anyone that decides to sell theirs.
Does it HAVE to be a Gibson though?
I tried a Tokai LPJ after trying a Gibson LPJ and the Tokai was nicer.
Yeah if I get an LP I am totally gonna be a brand-whore, I admit it. I am sure a 90's LP Std or maybe a reissue from that era would be decently-built, and would set up well. I just need to get the wherewithal to spend that much on a guitar. That purple is purdy, btw. Nothing I'd play, a lil' flashy for my taste, but pretty to look at.
u wut m8?
I thought they costed $300
honestly just throw Gibson pickups in it.
Yawl africans trollin'. Why would you knowingly put Gibson pickups into anything lol, even those baitguitars. If anything it'd be Gibby LP with Bareknuckles, Duncans, Lollars, DiMarzios, but not the stock ones.
Yeah, I mean how much do the 2015/2016 traditional LPs go for?
I mean I know the 2015 range took fuck loads of hate, so I imagine a 2015 standard migth be a bit cheaper than most.
that guitar is too sexy looking for me, I wouldn't do it justice
dude why would you even buy a Gibson if you're gonna swap the pickups? They don't really have an edge on anyone that charges the same in anything tangible, I'm pretty sure tone is their last bastion.
They're pretty guitars anon don't make me sad
nah I thought it was an epiphone and every epiphone I have played personally has been complete shit in comparison to Tokai, Gibson etc.
The previous LP is a flat top, which just looks a bit wrong.
It's not flat, just a shit pic. I have an epiphone bass and it is pretty shit. I'm trying to sell it ATM. I happen to have a guitar-shaped box, how easy is it to sell a guitar through reverb? I can sell for less than what's listed there right now and still profit. Anyone sell before?
that little lip where the neck and body arent flush just fucking aggrivates me beyond belief.
Never sold anything on 'reverb' sorry fella, I've sold locally and abroad with ebay though. Honestly its how you word it, all the big bold text is for fooling the idiots who know nothing, then the small print is for fooling those who know their shit.
Huh, I thought all LPs had that lip. You mean the heel meeting the body right? Trying to learn sorry
>Yeah, but it's more of a blues-rock thing
More of a rock-blues thing, really.
let us know how it goes. From what I understand about set necks the only way to avoid this is to shape the body or neck to have a taper. A set neck seems to be basically the same as a bolt on in that way.
>Is that the dude with the single pickup SG's
Haha no, SGcuck is a different guy than me. He's got a 4x12 cab and has been talking about jamming with a drummer and auditioning singers recently.
it doesn't work good or come with good frets. It breaks easy. The bridge design is poor. It has a plastic chrome pickup cover. The pickups aren't balanced. The neck pickup has a rubber magnet. The 4001/4003 is a guitar that would be totally lost in obscurity if they didn't happen to put the pickups where they did, and didn't give one to Paul McCartney. That being said I love Rickenbacker looks and tone, I'm just not gonna sugar them up.
I've got this pretty about a month ago, what are some proper cares I should take towards the preservation of the wood, specially on the fretboard? What kind of products or treatment should I apply to keep it in the best condition?
By the way, I'll do it for you:
You could oil the fretboard a couple of times a year
I use pic related - a bottle will last for years.
Other than that, keep it out of direct sunlight, avoid extremes of temperature and humidity and give it a wipedown with a soft cloth every once in a while and don't drop it.
The finish on that guitar will repel just about any liquid short of paint stripper, but try not to spill your drink in the soundhole.
Is it worth putting an attenuator on my 60w Fender Supersonic, or do I need to get a smaller amp? Not looking for bedroom volumes or that fully cranked sound or anything like that, I just want to be able to turn the clean channel up maybe halfway for a bit of break-up when playing in my band.
>>61908220 what this guy said.
I like Dunlop stuff so I use his. One application a year is plenty. But any lemon oil treatment will remove the grime and keep the fretboard nice.
the bag will help
What's worse than extreme temps is sudden changes, going from freezing cold outside to hot central heating will fuck instruments up really quickly.
Just don't leave it next to an open window or in front of a heater and you'll be fine.
Bit of spit and a soft cloth
Make yourself a square out of sticky backed clear book covering if that makes you feel better.
That's something classical guitarists do, but they often have really thin finishes on the soundboard.
I wouldn't bother - the chances of them being shit and untunable is quite high. I get D'addarios in 10 packs for under $40
/gg/uys, i have a weird pedal problem.
2 of my pedals (mxr distortion and cheap ass joyo delay) got fucked up overnight.
they power up ok and the signal comes through when they're bypassed but when i turn either of them on they go mute. nothing gets to my amp.
i've been using the same stock PSUs for both pedals for at least a year
i don't care much for the joyo and i wouldn't mind throwing it away and gettiing something better, but i want to know what went wrong with the mxr.
20 minutes is a good place to start. Just remember to remove any distractions and just focus and getting everything clean and perfect (don't have music/tv going on in front of you). Using a metronome is really helpful too
That nodded DSL50 will rip your face off.
Peavey 6505 is the absolute most requested amplifier I get for reamping work, I have to have one.
Marshall 8100 has a specific sound that I like.
At the time I bought my AxeFX, dual rectifiers were $2000 more. SLO100s are $13,000 in this country.
I love albums like Moonmadness and Ommadawn. They aren't massively complex, I just listen to music mostly while I'm doing other things so I like having chilled out longer songs to listen to. Taurus II is incredible.
Damn straight, there's no point in doing whack ass time signatures if you're just going to sound like every average prog band these days. As long as it sounds interesting and unique it's fine/
Has anyone here tried "up-tuning" a seven-string guitar? If I have one, I would try tuning it a whole step higher so it goes from B to C# standard. It sounds ideal for higher leads and chords with the high 7th string while being heavy without going chuggadjent.
All Shall Perish uses that tuning but they leave the B string in standard so it becomes Drop B.
>can't stop hitting the rhythm circuit on my jazzmaster by accident
Vektor tunes to FA#D#G#CF instead of EADGBE, so a whole step higher, so there shouldn't be a problem, just use a higher gauge.
The problem you might find is that if you're getting a 26.5" or 27", the highest string will sound kinda weird, so I'd get a slightly smaller scale 7 if I did that, like a 25.5
Having a B string won't turn you into a chugmaster though, it's perfectly fine staying in BEADGBE
change out the switch
I'll get a 25.5" 7-string if I go out buying one. Preferably I'd settle for Ibanez.
I'm sure lighter gauge strings would help me tune to C# so I'd get the EXL120-7 since they're almost similar to EXL145, which works for E standard, since they both have a .054 string for the lowest one and a .042 above it.
half step up, or half step up and the low B half step down is fairly common. B E A D F# B E is somewhat common as well.
I see quite a few people tuning to A# F A# D# F A# D# as well.
I'd rather have a Gretsch than that one, I like the Caribou cuz it's a bit unique
They're still all really nice though
A lot of $$$ for a Korean guitar but you see a lot of pros like Mike Campbell using them.
Those would be C Standard and Drop Bb/A# on a 7. BEADF#BE is 7-string B standard but the G string is half a step lower so the low six strings would have the same intervals as E standard.
i know alot of you guys dont like him, but i learned alot playing some of his stuff.
but i could never get warehouse clean as he does, when moving to the 2nd chord shape:
and i haven't seen anyone cover it as clean.
A few months ago, I found a Washburn HB15 at my college music store for 249. Flatwound strings. Gorgeous. Didn't get to buy it though. 2 poor.
How bad did I do?
>Reluctant to practice, even though I know it will increase my ability to play difficult stuff or come up with my own
Is this the eternal curse?
Which model are you looking at?
That's what I call lame practice, and develops bad habits, I try to put 100% focus in each practice session but it drains me dry at 4th or 5th hour .
I really don't believe all those 10 hour guitar workouts they are all bullshit
Dream is probably a sonic or Daphne blue strat.
I'd love to have a Marshall stack
4 years on and off
Pic is current guitar
was thinking about that, might actually do that next weekend, I've never actually modded a guitar in my entire life, which is why I asked this: >>61911241
I've completely stripped my first electric guitar down one time like 6 years ago or so because I wanted to mod it, but I never actually did. Maybe it's a good time to do so. Do you think it would look good with a rosewood fretboard? Or should I really go maple?
Only a curse if it hold you back. I very seldom sit down and actually practice technique. If I come across or think of something I can't play, then I work on being able to play it and when I can, I just move on. It doesn't really happen too often anymore, but I also don't play anything that requires too much technical ability. Guitar players often forget that most people find that kind of music completely novel, as doI most of the time. They also don't like to do the mental and ear training work required to actually make what they are doing interesting. They usually like to just autistically practice technique all day because it is easy to measure their progress and doesn't require them to read and drill themselves mentally. Even then, alot that do try to get into theory just go about it pretty terribly imo. The best way to learn how to make music that you like is to reverse engineer music that you like, that is fairly well known. What they miss on, is that the feeling created is still subjective. They can recognize a harmonic interval, but don't put much into what it evokes and why, in the context of this piece of music, it is able to evoke that feeling. There really aren't guidelines because its simply one's own interpretation of the music, and alot of people struggle to consciously think about that, even though they know theory, which is supposed to be a medium for helping construct those kinds of thoughts, because they don't learn theory with that intention. They usually just think they have to learn it to be "serious' about playing music. Its the equivalent of a multiple choice test vs. an essay. Multiple choice can be conditioned through flash cards and drilling facts, while an essay requires you to take that knowledge and compile it into thoughts that are coherent with one another and create a meaning well beyond the sum of those facts.
I have been playing for 5 years with pic related. I first learned songs I thought would be cool to play(I know more than 50 now), then I started messing around with chords and scales. I have wanted a new one for a while now, but I am a poor-fag that has just recently gotten a good job. What is a good and affordable model for any genre paying? I broke the high e-string yesterday while tuning for a specific song.
Well, I was planning on getting a fretless 5 string at some point, but I first need some pedals for bass. Only have pedals for guitar now, might as wel get a better bass amp down the road.
>Ibanez GIO gsr 180
Shitty thing worth £134
>Trace elliot 715 200W 1X15 bass combo with 7 band graphic eq
worth roughly £600, bought it for just under 300.
Looking to buy a 60's Japanese jazz bass (fender)
Been playing a year and a half, influences include John-paul jones, noel redding, John deacon, Randy meisner geezer butler and other classic rock bassists
Each pickup is usually calibrated for a specific position (e.g : neck or bridge) and therefore has a specific impedance.
So make sure you buy the right pup for the right position.
Could have been way worse
Well, I have an orange crush 25 bass amp because it was going for cheap, but I don't think that thing will do a 5 string any good.
I've been playing guitar for 3 years and bass for 1, I can work with frets.
Since I know you fags can't get enough of Jazzmasters. JMJM with a painted pickguard. Its not as neon as it looks in the picture. Also sanded off the squier logo and signature and painted an orange bell flower on the headstock. Other guitar is my strat I posted yesterday. 92 MiM with random pickups. Both strung lefty.
well if they made lefty JM I would buy one. i also bought the strat when i was 15 and thought i would be like hendrix so yeah i guess i was back then. my main guitar now is a lefty. also stfu. you don't realize how much of a bitch being a lefty is when it comes to guitars.
alright this should be upright. fuck iphones.
apparently orange launched a new bass guitar in the $300-$350 range. Looks cool. Perhaps a nice alternative for beginners looking for a précision bass tone.
youre a serious faggot. if i gave a shit about it being squier, i wouldnt have told you that it was and i would change the neck plate. im going to assume youre just a bit jealous and need to take out some teenage angst built up from not being invited to the big party last weekend.
I couldn't find price info, thanks. It sure looks way better than a precision.
>not posting black PG version
Nice intonation. Have fun being out of tune as you move up the neck. I bet you didnt have a lefty nut cut for them either, but I'm sure that pretty flower sounds much better than the squier logo.
Ah, that guy. I was gonna say, your posts never gave off an aura of being cucked in any way. Nice Tweedy SG by the way, that thing is really cool. Met the dude at a local shop last year, met Stiratt at the same place. Both are real nice dudes. Just need to get to a damn Wilco show now
Thanks man. I've been enjoying playing it a lot since I got it. Still do a lot of playing on my single pickup SG, because I still love that guitar, but the Tweedy's by far my favorite.
