Re: Just how important is high end gear?

When you are starting out, you may be tempted to want the best gear. You want the most expensive guitar, the best computer (maybe even an expensive Mac), the best stage clothes - the full list. I'm here to tell you that you don't need them. Now, don't get me wrong. Having good equipment helps. But h...

Do you need help ???

Do you need help finishing a song? Do you need a good guitar solo on your song? Do you need ideas on how to make your song better? What ever you need help with, I am willing to help you. I am a songwriter and I have written songs for 18 years, I have home studio stuff so I can record pretty much any...

Re: WHY play guitar? Really..

Why did I want to play guitar? In two words, The Beatles. I was about 6-7 years old when they exploded onto the scene - that amazing sound, I thought at the time, "Someday I'm going to do THAT!" OK, I'm still a long way off from that standard - but you know what? I don't really care. I LOVE to pick...

I wrote it on my own before I brought it to the studio then drum and bass parts were cooked up. Yeah it's totally unmixed so yeah raw, I want the drums further forward and will be remo...

Re: WHY play guitar? Really..

Hey, yes it was a really raw and dirty mix, but in fact, I often like this thing,
its the feeling of "trueness" :)

nice job, when will you be mixing it?

Is it you singing as well?

Re: The Inspiration Thread

cool Vic, I like to sit down and play along with songs as well! I also love when songs shift key at the end, and therefore I often do that in my own songwriting as well! I agree, goldies are really inspirational,, coz they have that "true" feeling! I like new music to but it feels more synthetic heh...

Re: WHY play guitar? Really..

And to recap: If you follow your bliss and make your living doing what you would do for free, you will never work a day in your life. And other than a couple of 'day jobs' I had while testing the 'real work-a-day world', I've never worked a day in my life. I've put in my time, I've put in my effort...

Re: WHY play guitar? Really..

Me too. When I first started I couldnt imagine playing to anybody but myself. Tomorrow, I'll be playing to a nightclub of about 300 people. That is a big gig for us, but not too uncommon. Funnily enough, and honestly, I would rather do that, than play to my family members at my house (they have nev...

Re: WHY play guitar? Really..

What a great question!! I started for a boring reason. I just wanted to be able to strum along to some songs on the radio. But then goals change, and years later my reasons for playing still change :D yeah, true, my reason changes as well, and I think thats the case for most people, but my biggest ...

Re: The Inspiration Thread

This is a great thread. Getting stuck for something new to look at can make practice less productive, but also boring. I Was inspired by a post from fleaaa a few weeks ago. He mentioned googling Ross Bolton and his funk guitar lesson. That really gave me something great to work on and I have made b...
