Topic: Just to make sure I'm not a complete musical moron here...
So I took my guitar in to my local guitar shop, Lightning Joe's (been around for like, ever in this town) and Joe's wife immediately recognized my statue of liberty guitar (apparently it's a rare or unique make or something, she seemed genuinely interested in it) and checked it out for me. I told her that I was picking up guitar again and wanted it tuned/checked out so she got her husband Joe...Lightning Joe I would assume...and he said that the neck alignment and then gave me a look that would peel paint because I think he thought I had mistreated such a beautiful guitar. I felt guilty even though I haven't been home and it wasn't ME that unceremoniously threw the guitar in the back of the shed....anyway.
The diagnosis that the alignment of the neck was not...good...off....or whatever and I probably should have been able to hear that for myself. Well, maybe I didn't, maybe I did. I'm not sure. The strings rattle and kinda make a...honkey noise along with the notes that is quite unpleasent but I had attributed that to me not holding the chords down hard enough or something else....that was my fault. Joe offered to fix the neck for free since I bought the guitar there so I'm gonna do that in a couple of days and get new strings on it. My question is...was that rattle-honk noise the neck alignment? If so then kudos to me for figuring something out on guitar for myself.
I've decided to name it (drum roll please) Liberty.
I'm a noob guitarist but I have the love of a pro.
I want to learn everything I can.
