I'm a noob when it comes to guitars/amps/pickups but I'm highly interested. I have a Lyon and a Strat. What would be the best affordable electric guitar under 250? I like bright and mid-range tones, which some say would fall into the Stratocaster field, but are there other electric guitars with the same features? Sorry for the noobness.
>>
Diminished coolness: On any Dom7b9 you can play whole/half or half/whole diminished scale. So it's like two modes, which probably explains this weird hybrid scale Jeff Loomis is using. It's a mixture of both but it doesn't properly repeat at the next octave. If I find it, I'll post it.

>I'm a noob when it comes to guitars/amps/pickups

I thought you were new that's why I'm asking. I, personally, have three guitars for just that reason but they're all $1-3K. At the price range you're quoting, different doesn't necessarily mean good. If you're more advanced, then stop with the catfishing. It hinders the process of giving appropriate advice.

I started playing guitar a week ago and I have a few questions

1. How to get better at upwards strumming? I have no problems strumming downwards but when it comes to strumming up I cannot for the life of me do it correctly

2. Singing and playing at once will come with time, right? I tried it but couldn't. It's like my brain locks up and can only do one thing

3. What's the strumming pattern for "Baby for pree"? My first goal to guitar-learning is learning how to play all of my favourite NMH songs
>>
>>62003664
I'm a different person, I currently own 5 guitars, I own a couple of cheap ones, the cheapest being 60 euro's, the most expensive being around the 1k mark. Guitar cost is a complete joke and doesn't say anything about the quality of the instrument. A "Good" instrument is a subjective thing for the biggest part, especially when it comes to the anus fucking market of guitars, since every guitar player prefers different guitars and different sounds. The perfect guitar is a guitar that does exactly what you want from it, it being 60 euro's or 5000 euro's doesn't matter. Telling him to sell his old instruments is completely ridiculous for that reason. I've played some expensive guitars that I didn't like at all, and would take my 60 euro strat clone over those guitars anyday..
>>62003285 should honestly just go to a couple of guitar stores and play some of the cheaper guitars. There are some absolute gems to be had for no money at all.

>>62003454
>why do you need three guitars

Honestly I don't. I just need two actually, a H-H and a SSS and I'm good.

But I just like collecting them. If Mr Timmons over there can spend thousands on watch collection, or Paul over there can buy a Audi, or Jimmy here buys dual GTX 980, why can't I shelf out a 1.2k for a quality guitar?

I have some bass gear questions.

A. How good is the Fender Select? Especially compared to stuff like those 70's Bass reissues, Jazz Bass deluxe, etc.

B. How versatile is Rickenbaker? Of course it's very good for playing super tough rock stuff (that I do play sometimes) but how good is it for playing soul/funk grooves? And how good is it for Jazz?
>>
>>62003773
Good chord changes for just a week of playing.

Maybe your pick angle? If you're attacking with a 45 degree pick angle, are you also strumming at that angle or just straight up and down? If your pick hits flat, it's harder. Do you use a wrist or elbow motion up and down or a forearm roll? One of those three might suit you better.

>>62003951
>why do you need three guitars?

What you guys think about hagstrom basses? I own one from the 80's and I wonder how much it's worth. It's a really good instrument.

I have a little bit of a question about music theory.

I have this progression in A# lydian that goes I - II - iii - iii (A# - C - d - d) but I want to get more out of it.

There is like a simplified rule that says that in the Ionian scale, chords in grades 1, 3 and 6 create like "stabilty" mood in the progression, 2 and 4 build up "tension" and 5 and 7 create an "uncomfortable" mood that sort of asks to go back to the "stable" chords.

Does that apply to Lydian and all the rest of the modes as well?
>>
>>62004137
Rick can be pretty versatile but you've basically got one pickup. The neck pickup's only real value is that it is, technically, a neck pickup. So Jazz might deserve a better bass for low end thump. If you use a really old Rickenbacker it's impossible, but newer ones have a decent tone circuit that has a bit more low end. You'd probably want to run both pickups on and EQ boost the lows.

tl;dr It's possible but I wouldn't do it.

Guitar builders and luthieros! How possible this thing would be? I'm planning to build a wooden replica of 'the Maccaferri plastic guitar'.
Any thoughts how big operation that will be and how will this affect the tone? I'm not a very gold-eared and I'm pretty ascetic on the tone, but sure I don't want it to sound dead at all.

>>
>>62003773
About the second question, it is a matter of practice, don't worry. Start by playing the root of each chord and humming to them until you find the right beat. Then add words and deveolpe that shit until you find the right timing for the singing and the chord change. Then you master the song.

Sure, digging the song and the playing helps, but you will find it is just a matter of proper timing.

May I suggest practicing to Nirvana's "Polly"? It is really easy, has a nice flow rythm-wise, it also has both the "normal" singing-when-the-chord-starts-playing thing as well as the singing-a-little-later-after-the-chord-starts-playing thing.

>1. How to get better at upwards strumming?
train over some simple chords of your chose. it will come with time, like everybody else

this thing acoustic? Also, you have woodworking experience already? This isn't a small project when you consider shaping the sides and bracing, carving the top, on top of the other guitar things. /diy/ is a better resource, though I would wait until you've done preliminary research.
>>
>>62004298
It's fine for s joke but be aware that can is ambiguous. For example, you could say that they only can use the pen if you allow them to have it. By answering yes to the question you are confirming that they will be able to use your pen. You could say that it's always physically possible for them to use the pen, but it's actually only probable, and not possible without violating norms. However, if you give it to them, they are %100 able to use it. They "can" use your pen.
>>
>>62004351
It will have a piezo in it.
I'm not gonna do it right away, will do a couple of electric guitars (both hollow & solid body) first and if they turn out just fine, will do the Maccaferri replica. If they turn out junk I will do as many as I need to get a flawless result.
And I have done a bit of research, watched countless of hours of tutorials from various builders so I know pretty much everything - though information is just a tip of the iceberg. I will buy some informative book on building one day. But I promise you, anon, I will practice to the level of a Japanese wizard on this.

reposting crappy project bass mockup. As some of you know I've already got the bass and upgraded the first two pickups. I'm holding off on putting the remaining pickups and controls in until I'm done with a gig coming up in a couple weeks. But seeing some of the cool pickups in here has made me wonder about putting something other than a sidewinder in the neck position. Anyone know of any pickups in the neck position with really unique tones? I wouldn't use the neck pickup for much if it doesn't offer a cool sound.
>>
>>62003285
Telecasters and their clones also fall into that bright trebly range too, probably even more so than Strats.
For something a little more full sounding but not quite as trebly, try an SG or a Les Paul.
Honestly though if you're just starting out, I'd invest in a decent amp before really upgrading your guitar.
One of the mistakes a lot of beginners make is spending a lot on a good guitar while still running it through a crappy amp. An electric guitar is only one part of a system-the other part of that systemie your amp. The guitars you've already got will do the job just fine if you plug them into decent amps.
A great amp will make an average guitar sound great.
An awful amp will make a great guitar sound awful.

So I just bought this.
It looks really ridiculous looking and fits in a handbag, but I'm pleasently surprised, it's decently loud and the distortion doesn't flub around.
The cab is a harley benton G112 Vintage from thomann, which is basically just a celestion V30 in a box of plywood.
The only problem is that you can't get loud and clean with it, so basically you can't play jazzy stuff, but I'm not really plannning on doing that until a while.
I might swap in the stock tube for something a bit cleaner and run in an EQ pedal in the FX loop later, but anyways for 300€ it's hard to get anything really versatile.

Not a big deal if you've already got woodworking/cabinetry experience.
The thing to remember with that guitar is that the kind of plastic Maccaferri used was very stiff and brittle, so it made those guitars REALLY trebly-great for acoustic lead tones.
A good spruce or maple top will get you there. Maybe not quite as bright, but more than enough for most people's tastes.

Good to know! Maybe the biggest problem is to make the top fit on the sides. Or otherwise.

>>62004208
ok first of all, that's not really a lydian progression, it's just a progression. the major II is called a secondary dominant (V/V), other than that there's nothing really lydian about that progression. the specific sound with lydian is the airy #4/#11 sound.

what you're looking for is voice leading. if i were you i'd completely forget about trying to label a progression in terms of modes, because it's just a waste of time.

also it's probably better if you were to think of that starting on Bb instead of A#.

This is a bit of an odd question but:

I recently inherited a nice guitar, and I'm currently shit broke and don't have much to do in my free time. I'd really like to learn to play classical guitar, from the ground up. No real interest in pop/rock/singing/etc., just classical.

I think jaguar H H classic player is a cool guitar, I don't like the single coil ones. It's short scale so I don't dig it for rhythm work, though obviously it can be done. Power chords and lead work sound good. The mustang in particular is nice for the underwound pickups.

Fuck those guys who don't get the "growl" refrence. The answer is no honestly. Jags and mustangs are pretty much the only guitars that get that sound, don't get turned away by the meme status. If you like the sound, go for it. MIJ jags and mustangs are mint. Save for one or an AVRI.

It's the sound that glorious low output makes through a cranked tube amp. It's not really something that can be replicated at lower volumes unless the amp as a separate higher gain channel with an adjustable gain knob. It's also where those out of phase switches come in handy on the mustang in particular. Don't currently own a jag or a mustang anymore but I wish I did for the sake of recording a demo for you.

>>62007463

>>
>>62007728
I like the small ones, I don't like the big ones. I like small headstocks in general, there aren't many good examples. 4+2 and 3+1 headstocks seem very logical and comfortable to tune. The highest 2 strings on a inline headstock and the g string on a 3+3 headstock are uncomfortable.
>>
>>62007784
I get it now. Definitely there's some low output strats out there that fit the bill. I think the tone of a shorter scale + heavier strings gives you a better low output tone though, keeps it from getting too thin. You can always put thicker strings on a longer scale but that's no fun.

Just go to a music store with your guitar and try out stuff in your price range. The hallmark of a decent amp is a good clean tone, so try to get a clean sound that satisfies you, and be picky. If something is too thin, too "boxy" or whatever, give it a pass and move on.
That said, people around here have had good results with Roland Cubes, Orange Crushes, Fender Blues Jrs and Vox AC15s.

Messing around with my new looper and just general noodling. As someone who doesnt really play with other people (yet) and no real plans for recording (yet) this loop pedal is feeling like an amazing investment already. Anyway, how do you guys get out of the pentatonic scale mindframe when soloing? I feel like I'm thinking about it too much and forcing stuff to happen and it just sounds blah, plus the looper is now exposing my awful rhythm lol. I'm assuming this will all just come eventually with practice though. In the mean time I'm having a fucking blast with this thing thanks to whoever on here recommended a looper to me a little while ago

I'd say an active 5 string with 2 soapbar pickups. Think Ibanez, LTD, or whatever

It's a good starting point for figuring out what you like in a bass.
Itll help you answer questions like;
Do you want more strings or less strings? Do you favor the neck pickup, bridge pickup, or both?
Do you use the active EQ, or do you leave it flat and would prefer a passive bass?

I'm trying to get the five positions of the minor pentatonic down and I'm focusing on learning the shapes and how they fit together.right now I decide the key I'm in then visualise the first shape based on the low e root note, then I try to build a picture in my head of how the 2nd and 5th positions appear to the right and left of that and build the scale visually looking at the fretboard. I feel like that's quite a clumsy way of doing things though and although I know in theory that the five positions are representing the five notes on the e string I don't know the notes of the pentatonic in each key so that doesn't help (it takes me a while to work it out) - plus I'm not very quick at identifying which note a fret is on the e string. What should I focus on to help make me better? Also when a position drops off the bottom fret it confuses me too.
>>
>>62010332
Bretty much. That wasn't a fun week for me


>>62010518
Yes. If your root is the 5th fret E string (A), and you play that A with the 2nd fretA string (B), then that B is the 2nd. However, if you play the A with the 9th fret on the D string (also a B, but an octave higher than the first B) it is the 9th

I don't own a 6 string and don't plan to

you've got no leg to stand on if you have to resort to guesswork at this point. leave now and save face

Hi /gg/

What's a good website to buy import guitars? Looking for this one in particular.
>>
>>62014303
roland products are the best value for money on the market and they have so much variety in their range

effects, keyboards, synths, amps
i hear incredible things about them i'll be sure to pick some roland products up soon

if you're looking for a new piece of gear please ignore this guy he's trolling. roland products are used all overthe world and are known for being near-perfect at a reasonable price-point
just make sure you dont buy used as there may be a drop in quality make sure you buy new from an official roland dealership

Why go with the Dark if you wanted less gain?

12at7, 12ay7, and 12au7 will have less amplification factor (gain)
60, 40, 20 respectively vs a 12ax7's 100.

>>62015119
The 5150/6505 has a reputation for having a bad clean channel but honestly, my buddy owns that very same head, and it sounds okay.
>>
>>62014969
>>62015136
I bought it mostly for metal anyway, so I don't mind not really having a clean channel. But I haven't messed around too much with the tonal options of the said amp.
The other reason is that it has an 8 Ohm output, while the regular micro terror has a 4 Ohm output, so I wouldn't have been able to use the cab with it.
>>
>>62015119
It depends on guitar quality
A fender or gibson would give you muddy tones
But a rondo would give you cystal clear cleans upon which you may build a beautiful tone

Americans tend to prioritize what other Americans prioritize. So we do a pretty good job of repeating what we're told.

I generally fail to see how bringing many additional riflemen to an area will improve the living situation. There are a number of exceptions. The thing is a lot of the people here either think a terrorist is behind every shrub just waiting to pop out so we need to up our military budget x10 or they are so tumblrized that you could probably shake down their wallet with a nerf gun (this second group has the best beards btw).

Good choice then. the AT or AY might be worth a shot. The a 12au7 tube won't distort at all when substituted in most guitar preamps.

Standard 4 string Fender Precision (P bass) or a clone thereof
Cheap, easy to find, available literally EVERYWHERE from EVERYBODY under the sun, simple, and the sound works for literally every style of music.
>>
>>62010435
No, what I'm saying is whatever substantial developments there have been (and there have been many), they pale in comparison to the complete paradigm shift ushered in by the P Bass.
When you play bass, you don't play upright-you play a bass guitar. That's due to the P bass.
