Ave just found a way of improving the  vocals when am playing, no real magic about it!! just get somebody else to sing!! smile

Seriously...what ideas do you fellow chordians have? i dont have a good voice at all but enjoy "trying" to sing along while playing

ave no fancy gadgets though am goning to buy a mic, to record my voice and guitar,  is it possible to use my pc to record and maybe ad echo or something to improve  the sound?

I am not looking for a professional job just a improvement (so it wont take much)

Cheers Micky  cool

Ps: ave got  Audacity software

another cool thing I bought is the Ernie Ball Electric String Winder...Looks like a little drill. I know seems lazy and lame but it's pretty cool. Admittedly, I do love the gadgets.

Lazy or not handy little gadget so i made my own to use with my little srewdriver drill

i know this is not Blue Peter but here's one i made earlier lol

and no stickyback plastic in sight ( though i did use glue)


It cost the price of a hand winder, about a pound? if it breaks i'l make another

cheers micky

Hello fellow chordians

                                   Just a short quick question or two lol......
Q1 - What's the best way to store your guitar ? I dont mean long term as i play everyday, and any i dont goes back i a gig bag

So is it bag/case? Stand or Hanger?

Am asking this as i now have  mine on hangers and not sure if thats good for them long term. So do hangers do harm?  ( i know, something i should of asked BEFORE i bought the  hangers)

Q2 - who names their Guitars, and what are they called?
(summat ave never done but been tempted lol)

Cheers lads & lasses cool

My new Acoustic !! and dont i just love it !! yes i do lol

plays soo sweet


Cheers! micky

Thanks lads !!

                              i'll give what i understood a go lol God! noises from any orifices (gulp!)

i tend to sing RnR 1950's stuff Holly/Everlys Etc with a bit of Cash & country, mainly to myself! yes i do get embarrassed even though i enjoy it lol and my guitar playing will go haywire too( though i did video myself once OMG! I sounded crap)....also  i dont push myself enough to sing other gendres and i know i should!!......

maybe 2 years is'nt long enough experence for this ole man lol.....Practice Practice

looks like more confidence would be of help (or a thick skin lol)

thanks again!     Micky cool

Hiya Fellow Chordians

                                 What is your opinion? can anyone sing? hmm  i mean with a reasonable sound...
I must admit i can't, though i do try roll  i never seem to find the right"pitch" for my voice

Ave had no vocal training at all,  never really had a need to sing owt (bar Christmas time with the kids) now am 48 picked up the guitar 2 years ago and want to sing along to what am playing.

Do i stand a cat in hell's chance? given i think i dont have a musical ear!

Cheers Lads & lasses  cool

Hiya all,
Am having a problem tuning my Vintage electro acoustic in using a inline Korg tuner, it seems like its not picking up,ave tried a different lead/new battery in both guitar & tuner ( its ok mic wise)
oh its ok inline on my tanglewood semi hollow too.  i usually use a clip on tuner  but thought ad better give it a good tune up

any ideas???

ps: plays fine to a Amp,so i dont think its the pick up?

cheers micky
