Previous thread: >>61984764
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.
Since when was Arnold a guitarist?
Also, this thread is now "/gg/ - Political Edition". Post guitars/guitarists that have some politics intertwined in their history/success/etc.
>Working class oppression
Sorry for a non answer but do you need three guitars? I say sell the two you have and up the level of what you can get. I still don't know what's good in the price range, though.
At first, I thought he was just posing but it looks like he's plugged in.
>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
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.
>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?
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.
>why do you need three guitars?
He purposely misquoted me so that he could post his long-winded "expert" advice. If the answer is yes to, "Do you need them?" Then that's fine by me.
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.
Also I own a custom made bass by a not so known guy named tim frick, it also really really well made warwick inspired with bartolini pickups. I got it for around 1,700$ second handed. How much do you think it's worth?
btw I just forgot some questions.
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?
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.
I annoy people at work with that shit
>Can I use your pen?
I'm sure you can!
*keep doing what I'm doing
>Oh for fuck's sake - MAY I borrow your pen?
Certainly! You only had to ask!
The worst offender is our media/marketing guy, which explains why his copy always needs to be double checked before going out
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
> Singing and playing at once will come with time, right?
yes, but you gotta train everyday.
It's very simple stuff, don't overthink it.
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.
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.
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.
I like the headstock on the Viking (and at least one other model). The bassist in Broder Daniel played one so, I guess, it could be a 90s model.
>I annoy people at work with that shit
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.
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.
No, I was actually thinking about the kind of plastic bag you use to put your fruits/vegetables.
It probably fits in a handbag too though.

Also ted nugent sucks and is an asshole
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.
What other guitars have the Mustang/Jaguar-type growl to them when played through vintage-style tube amps?
Upgrading from a Affinity Strat on my birthday and I wanna try out a few new guitars before settling on the meme
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#.
ted nudgent is a douchebag, but this is a really good song
the fuzz breakdown near the end is really heavy, especially considering the year this came out
Little family photo action going on here. Resurrected my Gibson back from the dead after 7 years. Walrus Audio Phoenix is on the way. And probably that new Echoplex delay coming out. And, of course, a memory man (big box) if I can find one. Tinnitus is still hanging around. I'd call the hotline but I always get the machine. How the hell can I leave a message after the beep if it never stops? FUCK.
So I have one of these bad boys:
Worth about $300-$400 in present condition I'd say. Anyway, this mafck on craigslist wants to do a partial trade where I give him the Carvin cab + $400 (gonna try and talk him down to $350) and he gives me pic related
Good deal or am I getting ripped off?

Forgot to mention the conditions of each cab
The Carvin is in like new condition, and the Ampeg is in good condition with some signs of wear. Everything works as it should on each cab
pick one, the man is about as based as it gets

Agreed, although others have done worse in the past, like deleting VST links.
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.
If someone were going to go about this, what would you recommend? Is it impossible without a teacher? An intuitive method? Some self-teaching resource? I'm pretty clueless.
that's the kind of stuff you can only afford with disposable income, in other words a stable, decently-paying job.
nobody's going to assume that unless you still live in your parents' house. then it'd be accurate.
private lessons are the best way to go about it but it's definitely possible to be an autodidact
either way you NEED some kind of direct feedback. it's easy to start off wrong and develop bad habits. you could probably post videos of your playing here and get that kind of feedback unless your skin is thin as hell.
justinguitar might be a good place to start. can't personally tell you because I started like 12 years ago.
Fuck that's an ugly guitar, you need to aspire to a better class of guitar
My recent purchase
I live on campus I'm a student
What I said still applies
You startedokaying guita4 because you dreamed of being a rock star, then you gave up, now you're bragging about the "disposable" income you're getting instead
what do you think about the fender jaguar? For all intents and purposes, I'm a beginner. I learned guitar years ago and played for a couple years, but stopped playing so I'll be pretty fresh when I pick it back up.
Basically, I want to pick it back up just to jam out some surf guitar and some blues. Basic stuff, really.
stop projecting. a hobby is a hobby.
next you'll tell me every person with a nice car secretly wants to be a Schumacher.
you're clearly upset and/or retarded so stop now and save face.
DON'T TRUST NOBODY GOTTA LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDER CONSTANTLY
Not him, but seriously as >>62007079 said stop projecting.
To me guitar is a cathartic medium to get away of stress and other daily nuisances, it gets the job done. I could very well spend this money in cars, whores or any other hobby but I chose music.
Musicians in this shithole starve themselves, there's no way you can live out of music and have a very good standard of life.
Ironically the people that can afford decent equipment usually has another profession (yes, we are blooze lawyers, engineers). Unfortunately most of them know shit besides Gibson, Fender and Marshall.
kek. not even close. that shit is so fucking stupid
Used to own a hollow bass. They have the unfortunate combination of sounding both thin and muddy. Yeah, it'll suffice in a band mix, but it's far from ideal
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.
I meant more like not having a band than actually playing solo music. I don't think you should base your opinion on hollow bodies off that one bass, thin tone is definitely not related to a hollow body.
Remember that one guy who bought one of these and said he'd record it and never did? fuck that guy X'D
post desired bass guitars
I'm a mechanical engineer. That's my job, that's what I do. Music, guitars, gear...that's my hobby. Never wanted to be a Rock star. Stop being such a shitty human being. That's no way to go through life, for your own sake or others.
fretless version of this
Anyone play a game changer bass or guitar?
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.
does anyone else really like musicman headstocks?
i don't know why but they're very visually appealing to me. i think it has to do with how straight the strings look, if that makes any sense
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.
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.
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.
>The highest 2 strings on a inline headstock and the g string on a 3+3 headstock are uncomfortable.
Even when they're ergonomically tilted?
Anyone play one of these?
What do y'all think of this new Orange bass
I can't decide if it's really ugly or decent looking
Yes. rondo music. Their LP copies are the bee's knees, and SX basses are pretty sweet. I own an SX P bass. It sounds just like a P bass should.
Does anyone own an Agile multi scale? I've wanted a fanned fret guitar since I first saw one.
You mean like the way abraham laboriel plays?
If that then its hard af, i tried playing like that and its nearly impossible to play without snapping and accenting the notes all over the place unless of course you've been playing like that for a long time
I wish that had a cab modeler for going straight to headphones with.
Z. Vex just went full-steampunk lads.
>playing bass with thumb
Hehehe get it?
My own Thumb is coming in the mail today. I'll post pics once I'm done having a 30 minute non-stop full body orgasm
It looks like they didn't whether to go for a vintage or a modern look. It's decent looking with the orange finish though.
But who cares about the look, I want to hear that thing.
Fretless bass just isn't worth it to me. I can't do a lot of my favorite techniques. Sliding harmonics is cool, I guess. That's it, though.
I'll be posting a YT clip of my new Thumb later today
Nice shit taste m8
heh, I'm doing a double degree on Naval Architecture and Mechanical Engineering
Feels good to be glorious STEM master race
Said it better than I could've. Sadly my budget only allows for a Squier (and the used market here in Germany has much less Fender). Still, judging by the videos I've seen, it should be alright
Moved back to my hometown earlier this year, into a barn converted into a 4-bay auto shop / suite combo. The Jam Wall is beginning to take shape. Post your jam spaces.
>he believes he'll get paid $300k for a job that doesn't consist of moving the world
>he thinks i'm an engineer
god no the world has enough of those
you might make low six figures if you start out as an actuary, but there's a good reason those jobs pay well.
you've been fed horse shit if you think that's actually true though. is this how american degree mills get retards to sign up?
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.
Yeah, you're supposed to hit it with the corner of your thumb on the upstroke. So both flesh and nail will be hitting the string. Not something you need long nails for.
I'm addicted to nail biting and I'm decent at double thumb
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
Don't usually post on this general but I'm an amateur guitarist who wants to also get into playing bass.
What bass should I get to start out with?
>implying you don't believe you'll make $300k starting
>pretending money is unimportant
>pretending purity of a discipline is relevant
Sorry to burst your bubble kiddo. Mixed discipline master race.
Once I finish my engineering degree I'll probably pursue an MD degree.
>hollow basses sound like shit
>they sound good in a mix
We get it-you didn't like yours. But to say they all sound bad is just asinine, especially when even you admit that it actually sounded alright.
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.
Bretty much. That wasn't a fun week for me
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
there's a huge difference in muting difficulty mate
although neither are really hard
6 string is niche and I've only seen it work in tech death but there's still nothing inherently wrong with it
So you're admitting you're uncomfortable with a 6 string bass because you're too dumb to actually play the bass part ?
Having a higher string doesn't make you instantly a pseudo-bassist, there's plenty of uses for it without going into the dumb soloist domain
>implying muting is a challenge at all
kek, you're right
>So you're admitting you're uncomfortable with a 6 string bass because you're too dumb to actually play the bass part ?
More like the bass part doesn't involve notes above high C at all, so the only use of the 6th string would be reducing my string separation and bragging about how I don't play bass because it has less strings than a guitar
>Having a higher string doesn't make you instantly a pseudo-bassist, there's plenty of uses for it without going into the dumb soloist domain

Top kek, you're like those blooze lawyers that think a $6k Les Paul will make them good guitarists
But it is niche. Because it's seldom needed if at all.
cubebase is fun
if you actually use the high string then by all means, play a 6 string. if you don't, I don't see the point in having it unless you literally can only own or carry one instrument with you.
oh boy look at this faggot
>More like the bass part doesn't involve notes above high C at all
in other words, how to out yourself as a complete shitter in 15 words or less
>Top kek, you're like those blooze lawyers that think a $6k Les Paul will make them good guitarists

>he thinks not having a higher string limits you
>he thinks basslines should be trebly
price wasn't the point, the point is that just like an expensive guitar doesn't make you a good guitarist, having a lot of strings doesn't make you a good bassist either
>Also you don't have to play with two guitarists and a drummer just because you bought a bass

You sure convinced me with your great ad hominem.
I guess every 5 string bassist is a lonely faggot since they're ERB too.
Been playing a few months but I've barely touched lead stuff. I'm getting a hold of scales but still can't really do anything with them (bends, hammer ons)
Should I just keep noodling or should I learn solos from songs and pick them apart?
>he thinks not having a higher string limits you
any kind of instrument has limited range, ultimately.
what limits you is being completely impervious to change. the real problem is your shitty dumb attitude.
>he thinks basslines should be trebly
should? no. can? why not? again, you are needlessly limiting yourself. of all the ways you could gimp yourself as a musician this has to be the dumbest.
>having a lot of strings doesn't make you a good bassist either
at no point did anybody imply this. you are grasping at straws.

(also not sure on the red on the neck, thinking of sanding it back and making it plain, though fi i do that I'll probably sand away the front of the headstock and stain that red instead like azunyans fender)
>can? why not?
because then it isn't a bassline, dummy
>at no point did anybody imply this. you are grasping at straws.
he implied the only way to not be creatively bankrupt is to play an ERB
it's called smug anime, found it googling "smug anime girls". I guess I'll just switch back to pic related since smug anime triggers you. I don't even like anime, to me it's just a trolling tool.
>>calling somebody else lonely
>It doesn't make you worse either
It actually could, sometimes the very limitations of the instrument are what makes you think in a different way and innovate. Sometimes less is more.
>I guess every 5 string bassist is a lonely faggot since they're ERB too.
That doesn't even deserve an answer, it's extended range but in a direction that isn't covered by the other instruments on the band.
I bought my Ampeg 810 fir $300 so no, you're getting ripped off
>It actually could, sometimes the very limitations of the instrument are what makes you think in a different way and innovate. Sometimes less is more.
stop being bad
>That doesn't even deserve an answer, it's extended range but in a direction that isn't covered by the other instruments on the band.
stop playing only with guitars
also keyboards cover the range of both guitars and bass yet are still used with guitar and bass. Same for the piano
>because then it isn't a bassline, dummy
yeah I forgot about the universal rule that states a bass guitar can only play basslines and that there's a magic range delimiter
with every post you sound more and more retarded
>he implied the only way to not be creatively bankrupt is to play an ERB
no, I implied you are creatively bankrupt because of your inability to be inventive and use every tool at your disposal.
some people are born innovators. you are an imitator, nothing more.
>Sometimes less is more.
I'm glad you abandoned stupid ass blanket statements and accepted that context matters
welcome back array-of-switches man
Sometimes, as "in the case of bass guitar".
>yeah I forgot about the universal rule that states a bass guitar can only play basslines and that there's a magic range delimiter
But who will play the bassline if the bassist neglects his fundamental duty? Bass guitar is the foundation of the band.
>some people are born innovators. you are an imitator, nothing more.
Says the faggot who got a 6 string because John Myung has one
it's a double-whammer of ad hominem and guilt-by-association
pretty much the level of discussion you can expect from this board when school time is over for the west coast
it's going to be REALLY shitty in 90 minutes
>Sometimes, as "in the case of bass guitar".
sometimes as in whenever I damn well want to, you obstinate shitty non-musician
>But who will play the bassline if the bassist neglects his fundamental duty? Bass guitar is the foundation of the band.
there is no inherent need for a bassline. you are incapable of thinking outside the context of western rock music.
>Says the faggot who got a 6 string because John Myung has one
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
actually scratch that, yyz and la villa strangiato are probably too busy to improvise on
leave that thing alone, now that one should do

HAHAHA, GREAT POST!
WELL FAG'D FRIEND!
everyone i talk to says these are incredible quality for the price and are suited to beginners and pros alike
cant wait for my sx to arrive, ive waited too long to learn to shred on an axe!
>one of the most prestigious guitar companies in the west
if you're looking to buy a guitar and are reading this, dont listen to this guy
a giant chunk of professional touring artists and session musicians used rondo products so you know they're trustworthy
why buy used when you can get the industry standard from the start?
>suggests other instruments aren't needed because of their range being "already covered by piano and keyboards"
>muh 90 minutes
>gets mad when he gets called a fag because of posting that keyboardist HanCOCK
>muh 90 minutes again
>i'm not the synthfag guise, i swear
what's the point in piano and keyboards existing if rondo guitars cover their range?
I'm not mad, I just wish you fuck off to /prod/ with your synthfaggotry, Face it, your shitty switched will never replace guitars and drums for every application. They may work well for some genres where it's desirable to sound artificial but that's all there's to it.
if I were synthfag i'd be defending keyboards right now
and as it stands I am not
I'm anon, I could literally just change writing and formatting style and you'd never be able to tell
stop rusing me now will you
>and you'd never be able to tell

fuck off roland shill
how much do they pay you to do this?
At least tell me how I can become a shill like you and earn money shitposting
two dolla a month, U S D
which is fine by me because I'm from zimbabwe
my keyboard is worth more than my entire village but on the flipside I can play the entire rhythm section all by myself during the rain dance ceremony
that is, if I happen to have electricity
What's a good website to buy import guitars? Looking for this one in particular.
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
I respect Vietnam draft dodgers
Going off to die in a stupid shitty war is dumb, avoiding that is smart
Americans have fucked up priorities if that's considered a bad thing
>one of the most prestigious music technology companies in the world
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
Just bought this G400 pro. Did I do good?
I tried one, theyre not as nice as the 2002 Gibbo version my old man used, but theyre by no means bad guitars, you couldve done a lot worse.
>hope you like riffing on baseball bats though
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.
thanks for this, was mostly baiting
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).
getting pol up in geeg
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.
It's pretty sweet how much hybrid amps have advanced. enjoy it, shred it
>thinks everyone is a ledittor like him
>refusing to call it leddit
>yfw looking at your portrait of ellen pao
gb2 reddit, fag, you're not welcome here
yeah, redditor confirmed
>mad and defensive
you're the one that got mad at my choice of career, fag
i bet you are in some useless crap like women's studies or something
the power chord, of course
complicated chords are a meme, you can use complicated chords and still sound like shit, or use power chords and sound like a god like dave mustaine does
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.
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.
