I think I am gonna go simple on my explorer and put a Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge and PAF in the neck. Going through an Ace Frehley phase right now. But I always had a thing for the super distortion, the 91' les paul I played had a set from the 70's.
On a side note aged creme pickups look amazing.
Rerecorded while my R16 was allowing me, and I changed up the drums to fit the style more. I also changed how I was picking to make the notes less piercing trebly at times.
I finally reached the point where I memorized whole Pentatonic Minor scale in all keys and I can play it without thinking much about what I play, I can just grab guitar and improvise something right away, but I still did not figure out chord relations to the scale, I do not play in boxes either I play few notes slide up and down the neck to keep it dynamic. I guess I should learn Major scale now right? Because I do not have to learn Blues scale because it's just pentatonic with chromatic notes, if I'm right.
Also my latest achievement was learning Devil's Island by Megadeth, it does rip your arm, I also wanna learn Holy Wars in it's entirety, I know how to play few verses but not song as a whole.
Blues scales are pentatonic with "blue notes" added.

Yeah I remember when I was a kid if you went into radioshack you got bombarded with tandy computers, walkmans, carphones, and electrical components.
now it's nothing but RC cars, cellphones, and phone plug adapters.
Yeah, I didn't remember seeing anything I needed the last time I went into one. The only people I know who shop there are buying phones without plan.
But what the hell, if they're selling wire for a decent price I'll buy it. I'd feel better about redundant shielding just because in my expert opinion cavity shielding does jack shit, but I hadn't had any problems before when it wasn't using shielded wire, so meh.
I usually get my solder and perfboard and maybe some basic components that I need in a pinch but anything else I just order online
my local radioshack is the most busted place I've ever seen
they only have like 2 or 3 r/cs at the most all the rest is weird stuff like little lcds you put on 360s so you can use them in the car
Welp, no wire.
Time to compare shipping costs.
So, last week I bough a guitar, and I've managed to get one song right, which is a short one.
Anyone have some easy beginner song?
(I'm willing to learn more chords, atm I know Dm, A and E)
I just ordered a trans-red Peavey T-40.
Beyond excite. May never need another bass guitar ever again.
I'm probably gonna get a second with blades. I like my '78 and everything but I think I'd like having a '78 and an '82 with a Kahler better
Borrowing a yamaha rx15 from a friend only to learn that we have lots of drum machines
Hello Facepunch guitarist, I am in need of your help desperately. I went on hiatus from my guitar for about 7 months and i'm trying to get back into it, and I just can't. I don't feel the magic I felt before my hiatus. I honestly do with all my heart want to get back into playing my guitar, but when I try I don't play it very long. I used to play like 3-6 hours a day but now I can only seem to play a couple minutes before I feel like putting it down again.
Has anyone ever gone through that feeling? Where you feel like you lost all feeling for playing the guitar? And does anyone have any clue on what should I do?
learn some new songs that always gets me excited
FFFFFFFFF YEAH. I also called Verellen Amps and ordered a Big Spider fuzz pedal and just got my confirmation email.
I feel good as fuck right now.
i want a Zvex fuzz factory
Tuned my guitar to EGBDF#A, it sounded strange.
on another note, why do the times that i can actually pull off a wes song and the times that i'm capable of recording my guitar not overlap in anyway??
On a side note, don't try and play guitar when you have a hangover... ugh.
Thanks both of you. I had started learning a song I had never learned to play, Dazed and confused by Led Zepplin. I started getting a little bit of the feel back when and after playing it. It felt good to play such a simple song instead of trying to wank up and down the neck.
(I'm also glad that I wasn't the only one to loose inspiration.)
Thanks to all three of you who are helping me!
I lost inspiration in 2006 and didn't pick it back up until 2008. I just forced myself to play until I was feeling it again
Yeah sometimes you just have to force yourself, that is what I had to do when I lost my finger strength. It felt stupid but I didn't want to stop.
I tried playing, but all I could get out was 20 seconds of punk riffs and then I'd just fall out of time and lose it for a week. I was young and angry, right smack in the middle of my teens
I've never been able to play while angry, I still can't play angry. I can write some good shit when I'm pissed though, and let me tell you I wrote the best things I had ever written during that time.
