Re: Question about using the slide on the pinky.

If I remember rightly, Roy Rogers was known as the "Singing Cowboy". Had a career in Country music.

Re: Too Much Feedback, Help Please!

Alan is right. The Peavey is marginally more powerful than the Marshall. All other things being equal, the additional "loudness" of a 120W amp over a 100W amp is marginal. That says to me that you have turned everything up higher than on the Marshall. First, you need to check your position on stage ...

Re: Antique Regal Guitar Identification

Google "Leighton Noble".

There was a bandleader and musician by that name. Maybe you have an instrument that once belonged to him.

Re: Bent wrist whilst playing chords

The usual problem amngs beginners is that they hold the guitar to help them see what they're doing. That is the most frequent problem and the easiest to solve. If you stand to play, don't have the guitar hanging round your knees. It may "look cool" in some circles, but it will not help your playing ...

Re: How to stop feedback noise on semi-hollow body?

If you are hearing buzzing, you aren't getting feedback. Feedback is a screaming, whistling sound, caused by specific frequencies creating a cycle of stimulation. Buzzing is more associateed with poor connections or duff electronic components (and not just in the guitar).

Re: Jack White and cutting three strings off your guitar

Wow, only 3 strings, huh?

Sounds really sensible, to me - I only play 3 bum notes instead of 6.

That's got to be an improvement................

Re: Marshall 15DFX question!

A guitarist's sound is a combination of various factors - mostly in the wiggly bits at the end of his arm. Whether you can achieve anything similar to Jerry Garcia is down to you experimenting until you're happy. I suspect that, no matter what guitar/amp Jerry Garcia is given, he will still sound li...

Re: Thank you all so much....

It's very difficult to imagine what you're going through - I have a fear of how I would feel if I lost my wife.

At times like this words are inadequate. Nonetheless, my sincere condolences - 14 years is a long time to share a life. Remember her for the good things that she gave you.

Re: Need Assistance, General Troubles

The 13th or 14th frets have to be the culprit. Whichever, the 14th fret has to be producing D#. That makes the 12th fret C#. If the intonation is correct, the open string must be C#. If the open string is D, then it has to be the intonation that is creating a C# at the 12th fret. If the saddle is se...

Re: Need Assistance, General Troubles

I have to agree with elecluther. I don't see how the 13th fret can be correct - either the open string is tuned to C# or the intonation is way off. I can't see any other way that the 14th can also give D#-

Re: Will Fender strat guitar parts work for any similar stra

The difference between such things as Epiphone and Gibson is easy to explain. US built gear uses Imperial measure, anything built in Asia uses Metric.

You can use any 5 way Strat switch - my Strat has 3 micro-switches instead.
