indeed. he said it might give it to me to do work on. needs some jack socket work, the spring replacement, bridge needs adjusting and shit like that. basically a full setup and a couple of replacement parts. it's one of those Vintage strat copies.
Power chords can sound pretty good on bass. That's really it though. A 2 note chord is good, 3 can be alright, anything more is just kind of a mess of noise on bass.
Speaking of bass chords, I have a bass octave pedal which basically matches your note except at an an octave lower, and when I fuck around with two or three note bass chords, it messes the tracking of the pedal all up and it warbles between the notes and sometimes it sounds pretty cool but most of the time it sounds like my bass is shitting itself.
You are correct.
makes no sense. That set of pins on the right isn't doing anything. Why connect the two?
I noticed that too but i'm not sure what the reason is
so after leveling my Wilkinson on my Carvin, the G (and sometimes D) strings have been going sharp constantly. Why is dis!? It didn't do this when the bridge was resting, so is it the bridges fault? I am not using the trem arm right now, so it's not from that.
What does it mean by push pull? Do they go up and down or are they the regular twisty kind?
So I could have it the volume of the pickup and then lifting it could do something else, such as only use one coil of a humbucker?
Thus negating the need for a switch beyond three positions on a H/H configuration guitar.
You guys have any idea what I could sell my yard sale '99 Schecter S-1 for? I bought it on impulse for $100 and it's nice, but I haven't come up with a good project for it yet and I'm thinking about just turning it into money to put toward a Damien Elite Avenger FR. I like it and I'm happy with the money I spent but it sounds shitty compared to my EMG-equipped guitars and I don't love it enough to spend money on it.
Note: Picture is from day I bought it. Frets and fretboard have been cleaned/polished, new strings, strings properly trimmed, and everything set up nicely.
the market on those is pretty wonky, I've seen them go anywhere between $200 and $450
I don't know if there are any dings or anything in it but I'll ballpark it at $300
I got a hundred project ideas looking at that thing, I don't know why you're having trouble.
I prefer extra switches over push/pull pots
Honestly I could see myself bumping into them a lot, they also feel clumsy to me. But I know I could get used to it.
Great idea if you don't want to drill extra holes in your guitar.
Just figured I'd look around at other options as long as I have parts lying around.
I just don't want to spend the money on a pickup swap, once I do that I'm well on the way to just buying a guitar I like more.
I'm having a bit of an issue with my guitar.
Months ago, I smacked my teacup off my desk in a fit of rage and it hit my fretboard, breaking the high e and denting the metal on the fifth fret. Now I can hardly fret a note there.
I hope this does not hinder me a great amount, I rarely play anything that high but I still have a feeling it's going to be a big problem later.
In other news I'm really getting fairly decent at the intro to Dragonaut. Pretty good beginner riff to chug along to.
Incorporating palm mutes, bends, and regular playing is great practice too!
yeah practicing makes for pretty good practice
If you rarely play the first string at the fifth fret, you're not guitaring hard enough. I'd feel absolutely debilitated if that note was gone, that throws so many chord voicings I know out of whack.
But yeah like everyone else has said, you're probably looking at a full fret job.
Whats some good songs to start learning to play guitar on? Started learning guitar last weekend and I can play yellow submarine and that's pretty much it
