Re: Eric Clapton Signature Amps

Buddy makes them sound real good too. It's amazing how he gets that dirty with his tone but still gets that strat chime.

Re: Hadn't been in jail, but...

This song has some relevance! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdg8KD-CaWU I know how you feel. I've been home sick for the past 4 days :( I hate being sick. Fortunately, you had your guitar. My mom said I shouldn't play any until I got better. But when she went off to work, the mice will play. Shhhh ...

Re: 12bar hall of fame

What about songs that aren't public domain but are posted on other websites like Soundclick?

or better yet, you can tell your wife that since you're buying a 59 Les Paul, you're "saving the trees". Haha :D

Re: John Mayer

I heard that John takes the opposite way of EC - starting with pop crap, then going to the Blues... :big_smile: Hahahahahaha, never looked at it that way. Atleast he'll get better as he gets older (I hope). Another thing that I really like about him is even in his non-cover songs you can tell he dr...

Hey man, you should be flaming me! I really like Half of My Heart with Taylor Swift lol. His newest album is ok, I completely dislike Crossroads though. It sounds like a midi machine farting that trys to pass off as guitar.

John Mayer

Is anyone really digging John Mayer right now? I used to absolutely hate John Mayer, especially his more mainstream pop stuff, but now I can't get enough! :icon_whoknows: My tone went from really distorted to this really glassy-clean Mayer tone within a day and I think I'll keep it (I still like tha...

Re: Jackal's Prefer Blondes

That's amazing! I have an Epiphone Les Paul too and I've been weary of the finish as well. I don't think I have the balls to sand my guitar because if I mess up, there aren't many people around here that could fix it up and put a new finish on. But congrats you! I bet you really like it now that it ...

Re: Bending & Vibrato

When you do your bends do you use one finger or multiple fingers? For the bends that involve my ring finger, I put my other 1 or 2 fingers (middle and index) on the 2 frets behind the ring finger fret and it allows me to have a good grip on the string. Once your bend is set, you can just do what eve...

Re: Best Guitar Parts?

I was thinking about this and I think the part that I value most in my guitars are the necks. The neck on my Les Paul feels like tree trunk, but thats what I love about it. I love the sound of strats and would love to get a real strat, but it makes me wonder how someone like EC for example can prefe...

Here's a twist Hans; What would you do if you had a guitar that had the perfect sound you wanted, but you didn't like the feel of the neck, or vice versa?

Best Guitar Parts?

As I picked up my guitar yesterday, I thought of the question "What part of the guitar do I like best and why?" :icon_whoknows: . Another way to put it would be, if you were buying a guitar, what makes or breaks the guitar. Is it the body? neck? pickups? even color? I just thought it was an interest...

Great Tab Website

I don't know if any of you guys have found this yet, but I was browsing last night and found this great site for tabs. It has a guitar-pro like player that plays along with the tab. It has a great amount of blues/jazz/rock artist tabs like BB King, Clapton, Chuck Berry, Django etc. Also, I'm not sur...

Hey, I've posted a few times on here that I'm involved with a few pickup bands in my area, I thought I would let you guys see how it's going. The first part of the video is the ending of Crossroads (any tips/comments? :D) and the second song is a newer song but I think the solo I improvised was pret...

i kinda understand that. Maybe if it was laid out with a chord for each bar i could understand better.

I also still can't figure out where the G chord fits into this and its driving me crazy lol :wall:

Re: Little Brown Bird

Fortunately I found the free trial after another look :D . But unfortunately, the free trial part cuts off right before it gets to the part I need (the G chord parts). But thanks ElMano, this will definitely help me for other songs (already used it for a B.B. King song)
