Small Studio Speakers

I have a Carvin PA800 1000 total watts, 333 for each speaker plus 333 for the monitors. Ok, here is the deal, the PA was a gift and is overkill for what I need but will keep it because I don't want to hurt anyones feelings. That being said the speakers I already have are huge, way to big for my stud...

Upgrading my nephew's amp

Greetings all, I'm upgrading my nephews guitar and amp. His folks bought him a package deal guitar/amp combo a year ago and its pretty cheesy so its time to upgrade. Could you guys give me some ideas for a good amp for him. Under $200 and probably won't need more than 30W. I would like some effects ...

Re: Fingerpicking basics

Well I tried anchoring my pinky last night and it felt quite odd, I've also tried resting the side of my palm on the bridge which felt okay but I'm not picking over the sound hole. So I guess I don't really know what to do. :?:

Re: Fingerpicking basics

I guess there is no right or wrong as long as you can perform it correctly. I will try anchoring my pinky tonight and see if that feels too awkward. Thanks all.

Fingerpicking basics

Hello everyone, hope all is well in your world. I'm starting to dabble in the world of fingerpicking, love how the guitar seems to sing :note1: with this style. My question is is there a proper position for your right hand during fingerpicking? I know you're suppose to keep somewhat relaxed but does...

Re: Guitar moving when changing chords

Sounds to me like you're totally releasing the neck when you change chords, in the first position you should have your thumb placed at second fret and remain there during your changes. Alot of the time when you change chords your hand position will remain the same just your fingers will adjust, for ...

Re: Preserving the acoustic sound

Hey a big thank you for your time to reply to these questions of mine. I've been contemplating this for awhile along with researching the best one, if there is one, and the Genz Benz name has been in the forefront along with Ultrasound. I had been seriously considering the 60W from Genz Benz but may...

Re: Preserving the acoustic sound

Thanks for your replies, when I was plugged into my friend's fender there seemed to be quite a bit of "feedback" a constant hum is that normal? Would the acoustic amps do this?

Preserving the acoustic sound

Good morning everyone, on my quest to amplify my acoustic and to keep the integrity of true acoustic sound I was wondering how well the acoustic amps do that, I have not been able to test any out so I need to rely on your knowledge. I was over at a friends house and plugged into his Fender Frontman ...

Re: Acoustic Guitar Amp

Hey thanks for the reply, there seems to be so many how can a person decide especially if you can't go and play them? :( I just seen a demo of one the Hartke AC150 on youtube. It sounded great and lots of effects I thought it would be super expensive but its right around $500. More confusion.

Re: Really frustrated

Whatever you do don't give up. I've been noodlin' with the guitar for about a year and taking lessons since September and now finally my chord changes have progressed enough to play songs that are recognizable by the human ear. It would be helpful if you could find an instructor to show you some tec...
