Re: Cleaning Rosewood Fingerboard

Cleaning frets can be a pain, especially when it builds up. I clean my fretboard every time i change strings. This way, its a much easier clean, and I don't have to put much effort in. I simply have a handkerchief and my Fast-Fret (A fret lubricant/cleaner) I do it when my strings are off so that th...

Re: High pitched ringing/harmonic in electric guitars

I have experienced this as well! And everyone said it was just a new string fix, but that never seemed to solve the problem. I have discovered the issue though, and it happens at the bridge nut. Although the bridge nut/nuts (for the individual strings) is metal on electrics, it still wears from the ...

Re: Buzzing noise on my Squier Strat

Hey there, I have a question, are your other guitars single coil pickups? If your other guitars are heavy metal type guitars, chances are they have dual-coil pickups.

Re: Teaching an experiences piano player guitar. Any help?

I am a guitar and piano teacher, and I have had students switch over. My favorite way to explain this initially is that a guitar is simply like a keyboard that has been chopped into six sections and stacked. Each fret is a semitone interval and rather than playing your chords horizontally like on a ...

Re: Modes!!

The reason they are different is because they are relative to the context of what key you actually play those modes. If you were to play the Dorian starting on 'A' ('A' Dorian), it would be relative to the key of 'G'. Yet, if you were to play the Dorian starting on 'G' ('G' Dorian), it would be rela...

Re: Buzz/Hum/Feedback

Having a daisy chain with a tube screamer can almost always ensure a buzz, as it takes a lot of power. If instead of a daisy chain, you use a power board with individual power to each pedal, the buzzing will be solved! I've seen it done twice.

Re: So many scales, so little....understanding...

I know how it feels to have a bunch of scales thrown at you, you are NOT alone. I was curious as to how everyone seemed to just 'know' what notes to play, and all I found were scales and arpeggios and modes all these things that just confused me. The key to being able to apply them to your playing c...
