Jammin for me is sort of like bodysurfing at the beach. Sometimes you just cant catch that wave, but then sometimes you catch that wave and you ride it all the way to the shore. When you catch the wave, when it clicks, what a feelin. Sounds to me like you caught the wave. Oh yea a good strap makes a big difference as far as comfort goes

Wow does that bring back some memories. I was about 20 years old I remember smoking about 2 paks of ciggerettes before the show. I was a nervious wreck. It ended up turning out well.

Hey There Michel, I was very impressed with that version of Classical Gas. WOW. My question is can someting like that be preformed (fingerpicked) without  amplification. My expierience with my attemps at fingerpcking is that it does not come out that loud. Also Claude DeBussy has  music lessons. Have you any knowledge if they are any good for more advanced lessons

Maybe you are banging too hard and maybe you might be better of with a heavier gauge string

Looking up songs on the internet is relitivly new for me. I used to have to sit down with a recording of the song and figure it out on my own. (unless I went out and bought the music book). So if the song tabs or chords are not correct or partly wrong at least I have the words or some of the basics of the song. This at least makes it easier to figure out the song. Hey its free information. I am grateful for all this free service. I dont understand how some people can complain about omething like this. What do you expect for nothing

I always thought it was because of the way he dresses. old  beat up jeans, the flannel shirt, the constuction boots and of course the long stringy hair. And as far as his talent goes the guy can just write exellent music whenever he wants.He has certainly passed the test of time. Just imagine any time you want being able to wip out an alblum, just like that. Thats Niel Young

Hi Phil, This is something that never interested me before. as long as I had an acoustic and an electric guitar I was fine, but lately I have been having the desire to buy more guitars. I have recently ordered a new martin D-42 and I should be getting it sometime next week. Now I want to get a resonator and develop my slide playing. I have also been thinkinking about a 12 string. I have a Gibon Lucille but I sometimes miss having Fender (Strat & Tele ) I believe I am suffering from the bug. Does it ever end ?

I am a drywall contractor but I don't work full time as I have moved to Canada from the US and I am waiting for my permenent residency papers and I am not allowed to work in this country.

She was supposed to move to the states but I sumhow ended up here in the great white north. We are planning to marry in March

I had never heard of Heritage before so I went to their web page and read their history. They are definitly a repupital company all being former Gibson guitar makers. If the guitar feels good and plays well  and you like it. Seems like a no brainer to me.

I find that very strange because when I replace my strings it's almost like having a new guitar imediatly. I have been using D'Adarrio for years. Maybe you might want to try them and see what happens

Congradulations, I must say your wifey has got great taste. enjoy

Just wondering what kind of amp are you using


(12 replies, posted in Electric)

I have been playing alone on a cheap fender starter type amp  (fender frontman amp) for years now mostly playing to recorded music. I am thinking about upgrading to a better amp. I was wondering if someone could give me some advise on shopping for something nicer that I could use when jammin with other people. My guitar is a Gibson Lucille

another question what is the difference between an acoustic amp and a regular amp. is a regular amp sufficiant for an acoustic guitar

I believe what made Jimi Hendrix such a great guitar player was that he had a gift. This gift of talent is what seperates the stars from the rest of us. No matter how much a regular person practices they will never reach the hieghts that a person with the gift of true talent reaches. Hendrix, Clapton and Stevie Ray are all among the gifted

Why shouldnt you play stairway to heaven? I think its great...one u missed is the practice excercise E5, G5, A5 Etc.

the reason is that for a long time stairway to heven was the song that every guitar player had to learn so it ended up getting so overplayed that it became like play something different
