I agree with TD. I do not consider myself an artist. I can play some stuff and know more than someone who doesn't play. My role as I see it, because of the knowledge and some might say gift, is to teach, encourage, and inspire others. For the past year or so I have been leading kids guitar workshops. While I don't get very deep with them, my hope is that at least one of them will be bitten by the guitar bug and pass it on when they are able.
What Unclejoe said.
It would be my luck that it was gone when I went back the next day. Got my fingers crossed for ya!!!
I just did a quick check and it seems like they're continuing operations for now. Seems they have been in trouble for the past year or so. Lots of head cutting going on in their corporate ranks. Looks like this is a last ditch effort to keep things running. Only time will tell.
Action can be adjusted on any guitar. Three areas come in to play when talking about action. The nut, the bridge, and the neck. The relief (bow) of the neck, the height of the bridge, and the grooves in the nut all get adjusted together to lower the action. Basically called a setup. It's something worth learning how to do if it's up your alley. If not, then take it to someone who knows how.
So what are you going to take on your camping trips now?
Glad to hear that you are progressing Jim!!! Makes you feel good when you get something. You should have come across some mention of counting in the vids you watched. Typically your down is counted as a "number" and the up is counted as an "and".
Here's a great little vid that shows it.
Sorry for our loss Joey. I know 2 other that have passed in the last two months due to cancer.
Roger, do let us know how these work out for you. As mentioned before, I think adding that much mass to the bridge would be a hindrance. I read something about a very low break angle also.
I remember when I was younger, that my grandpa used to sleep at the dining room table sitting up. He had some thing going on with lots of fluid in his lungs and was afraid he would drowned if he laid down to sleep. Strange to say the least.
Take it easy and do what the doc says. You'll be back to normal in no time.
I agree with Beamer and TF. Great guitar players are harder to find these days. I think the ones that stand out have that old soul and do it just for the music. One that comes to mind for me is Steve Stevens (Billy Idol's guitar player). He's 55. He played with Idol and did all that type of music for a long time (he still does), then turned a corner and got really in to Flamenco. I don't really care for it, but my point is that he wanted to expand and learn something new. you can only beat the same drum for so long before it doesn't work for you anymore. I think this is the type of person we will be talking about in another 15-20 years.
I don't know if Jack White is all that great, but he is also in this category. Mabye Dave Grohl also.
Lost another good one. That gravely voice is awesome.
Gonna get me an electric someday............
That's one of those that you don't think about until it's not working. Nothing like a nice hot shower. With water eaters you either pay for it now or you pay for it later. But no matter what, you're gonna pay.
Very cool. My wife's cousin's son has CP. He is 15 and likes to play drums too. I'm sure he got a kick out of this vid.
Happy NGD (new gear day)!!!!!!
I never realized that it takes Santa 24 days to get from Florida to California.
If y'all ever want to have a Chordie get-together in Ohio, then the nearby National Museum of the Air Force in nearby Dayton would be a "must-see" visit while in the area.
There are over 300 planes on display including several WW II planes mentioned in this thread - (ME262, ME163, Black Widow, P-51, DeHavilland Mosquito, Mitsubishi Zero) as well as modern planes like the SR-71 Blackbird and a couple versions of the F-111. Some of my favorite displays are the old bombers - B-17, B-24, B29 as well as some of the WW I fighters.
The Air force Museum and the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame are on my bucket list.! Both right there in Ohio
That Campini looks like it's a rocket with a cockpit.
I was at the Nellis AFB airshow in Vegas a couple weeks ago. Saw some awesome warbirds and the newest jets. Too many to list, but man, I love those planes!!
If you get a chance, check out Dogfights, it's a good watch, put out by the History channel.
Is that the Douglas on the left? It's huge compared to the LP. I like the LP better.
All I can say is that all of your complaints are exactly why I don't vote.
Not in any one location that I know of. If you do a search from the homepage for exactly what you want you might find it. E minor scale, D minor scale, etc.
Check out Justinguitar.com. He's got loads of stuff on scales.
Here's a question. Does Per hang out in the forums and does he play?
Happy NGD!!!! I'm thinking I might need an electric.
Wow, that's awesome!!!!
Happy Birthday to Per's baby!
Wow, that's really cool.
I thought it would be funny if he pulled his arms out of his shirt at the end.
My go to is 80's hair metal. That will always be my favorite. I love the guitar driven, let's have fun, party attitude that it was all about.
Now that I play guitar, acoustic blues is right at the top of my list also. I am amazed at what sounds the old timers could get out of their guitars. Most of it is very simple, but it's awesome,
