Re: song selection; Barre chords

Just a song suggestion for moving barre chords is The General by Dispatch. The main progression is Bb F Cm Gm Eb A# F and intro riff is a fun one.

Re: Tips on Shipping a Guitar

When I bought my LP it was shipped in a standard cardboard box with about 9 rolls of bubble wrap around the guitar itself. Seemed to work pretty well, no damage in shipping, just make sure to detune if first. With my Blues Jr., the amp was in a box packed tightly with newspaper inside another, bigge...

Re: New acoustic/electric guitar.

Well, I know absolutely nothing of your guitar knowledge and experience so I'm going to assume none, don't be offended by that, just covering my bases... I have never heard of Mitchel guitars and so have no idea of their quality. From my experience, Fender acoustics are not all that great and Alvare...

Re: I should start singing, shouldn't I?

It doesn't hurt to sing. I don't sing too much in public and the only person I'm not really nervous to sing in front of is my girlfriend. But get a few drinks in me and I'll sing anything (sadly my playing ability goes down as quickly as the drinks). However, look at a few very famous musicians...Bo...

Re: Buckethead

... I'd almost go as far as saying he's the most talented player ever. (flame on) Hmmm. I'm sure many people would have different opinions. I absolutely think he is far better than most guitarists and love his work. There are some pretty good guitar players out there these days. Not the usual suspe...

Re: Marshall Microstack, Sweet sounding amp.

Not familiar with the amp but if it's a tube amp, 15 watts is VERY loud. My 15 watt Fender Blues Jr. 1x12 is more than loud enough to shake the walls in my apartment and can easily be heard over drums and a bass.

Tube amps are a whole heck of a lot louder than solid state amps. Simple as that.

Re: Possible new Aoustic electric guitar purchase and questions.

1. I don't think its even close to possible to hurt a guitar by putting it into an amp that's too powerful for the situation. No electricity should EVER go into the guitar. 2. If you get a Marshall stack for home, small club or even large club use, I hope you are ready for regular visits from your l...

Re: I'm going to do it, I think I might.

I would agree that you should PLAY the guitar first and then decide if it really is your "dream" guitar. I always loved LPs but ended up with a strat because it FELT better than an LP....that is until I got my LP style Hagstrom, which felt better than my strat. I've gathered you've got quite a thing...

Re: Tube Amp Buzz/Hiss

I think I found the problem on accident... I usually have my amp set up in the living room but last night decided to move it to another room so as not to bother anyone else. As soon as I moved it the hiss went away. Turns out the socket I had it plugged into was improperly grounded. Who would've thu...

Re: Tube Amp Buzz/Hiss

Thanks Ric....I've only had the amp about 3 months and haven't had the time to put too many hours on them. I did check all the tubes before, took 'em out and popped 'em back in. No change.

If it helps, oddly enough the noise starts to dissipate as the amp heats up...

Hmm

Tube Amp Buzz/Hiss

Lately I've been getting a strange hissing buzzing sound from my Fender Blues Jr. It usually occurs when I'm playing on the lower strings and muddies up the sound quite a bit. It does not occur on the higher strings at all. The volume is pretty constant and is very noticable at bedroom levels. Not s...

Re: Suggestions for a second guitar?

I'm just gonna throw out Hagstrom-either a Swede model for LP style or one of their single coil models (I can't remember the name right now). I'm a big Hag fan after getting my Swede. For the price, I don't think they can be beat.

Re: Jamming with a drummer and 3 guitarist?

I listen to plenty of bands that have 3 or more guitarists, most notably Radiohead, and have been involved in jams with up to 5 guitarists plus bass and drums. Along those lines, I've seen a number of live collaborations with many guitarists on stage, or my favorite, a super jam at the Jammy Awards ...

New Addition to the Family *NOW WITH PICTURES*

I recently sold my Squier Strat to a buddy who wanted to learn guitar and in return bought myself a beautiful Hagstrom Super Swede. I don't see much around here about Hags but I'll tell you I'm in love with the guitar. IMO it plays infinitely better than LPs that cost 4x as much. I love the neck on ...
