    Joe Bonamassa new album 'Time Clocks'

    I've been listening this morning, skipping around tracks. Will give it a full listen after work for sure. It's some really good stuff. There's a fresh new feel to it. Even scaled back a bit, and has some new ideas and themes that don't really fit the stereotypical JB mold. The last track...

    Compelling video featuring EART guitars

    I often see interesting posts here in regard to inexpensive guitars. I stumbled upon this video today and wanted to share. I am pretty stunned, to be honest. The brand is EART and in my opinion the video is very well done. Apologies if this brand has been discussed in any earlier threads, but...

    I am buying! Musician's Friend Stupid Deal Of The Day

    This gadget is a lifesaver, one of the best items in my collection. I am feeling generous today - let me know who wants one of these...my treat!

    I've never broken a string this way...

    I was jamming on my Epi LP last night to Gary Moore's version of 'The Stumble' (discovered the song on this forum!) when I changed gears and wanted to play the first two phrases of the Gilmour solo in 'Another Brick In The Wall' (which is all I know at this point). The second phrase has a two...

    Sudden Telecaster tuning instability on '52 AVRI

    I’m not new to guitar but I am new to guitar maintenance and I have a tuning issue I want to share. My Tele is a ’52 AVRI and is less than a year old. Beautiful guitar. I have been playing it a fair amount over the last month, perhaps 1 hour daily and some days 2 hours daily. I love everything...

    New Bigsby owners...

    Good morning TDPRI - I am shouting out to see if there are any folks that recently purchased their first guitar with the Bigsby vibrato system, and what their thoughts are. Do you like it? Regret it? Tuning issues? And I don't want to leave out existing Bigsby owners! Is it a myth that these...

    Are we in a 'Golden Age' of Telecasters/T-style guitars?

    It might be just me ... but is the Telecaster/T-style guitar getting lots of love recently? I mean, even more so lately than normal. A handful of observations to note: My personal favorite - Josh Smith - announced a T-style with Ibanez just this morning Greg Koch has had his Revered guitar...

    Suggestion

    Good morning TDPRI folks: Have you ever considered offering a 'background theme' option? Microsoft Outlook and Office apps feature this but some website forums do as well. Might be a really cool feature to offer.

    Supro Blues King 12

    First off, hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. We did our first ZOOM video chat with members of my family across the country. Highly, highly recommend doing this! Second: Sweetwater is having a Black Friday sale on an amp that I have had my eye on for some time. The Supro Blues King 12. $329...

    Some very early holiday cheer ...

    Hope you all are having a nice Sunday morning. I wanted to share an idea with you all. I think you will all agree that 2020 is one of the strangest years in quite some time. In keeping up with the strangeness, my family and I decided to put up not one, but three fully decorated Christmas trees...

    Bedroom players - try this if you are in a tone rut...

    My apologies in advance for offering what could be something that you are all already doing...and for perhaps rehashing an abuse topic. Simply sharing tonight's experience... Tip your amp, if you are not already. I didn't think it would make a huge difference, but it's night and day, at least...

    Wonderful birthday gift!

    My awesome daughter surprised me with a beautiful abstract of my month-old Epiphone Les Paul for my birthday and it is below! I took the black pickguard off, glad I did, the painting looks even better without it. I have been told my next painting will be for Christmas and it will be of my '52...

    Made In A Day series on Hulu

    On a recommendation from my father-in-law, just finished episode 2 of 'Made In A Day', which is a pretty cool series on Hulu. Episode 2 covers 'Electric Guitars' and tours the Gibson factory in Nashville, and attempts to reflect the life of a Les Paul being built. It's really cool, highly...

    Game time!

    Before I continue, the "spoiler" below contains answers to a fun game. Clicking on it will reveal the answers. You will go to timeout if you click the answers first! See if you can name at least seven guitar companies that have their corporate brand logo written in "script", also known as...

    Very good beginner guitar - Epiphone DR-100

    My buddy has a daughter who has taken an interest in stringed instruments, and he wanted to get her a beginner guitar. He is not a musician so I helped him out. I checked out Craigslist over the weekend and found some great candidates, but jumped on a lightly used Epiphone DR-100. I met the...

    NGD New Gear Day...Epiphone Les Paul Modern...this forum is to blame!

    This forum made me do it!!! This little beauty showed up at my door about two hours ago. Very quick summary: For $649, this is a monster of a guitar. Longwinded and boring detail: So, I am in my 50s, and as crazy as it sounds, I have never picked up a Gibson guitar in my life. Plenty of...

    Cannot say enough good things about TrueFire

    Hope I am not breaking any rules on TDPRI but I recently signed up for 3 different courses on TrueFire. It is an absolutely amazing experience. The courses literally walk you through every single note, lick, phrase, and melody. They have an embedded media player that allows you to slow things...

    How can I try out new acoustics?

    Silly question but I am interested in trying the Guild M-20 as well as the Gibson G-45. I was hoping any of the Guitar Center or Sam Ashe stores within 100 miles of me would have one in stock, but none of the stores do (they all have 'Ship To Store arriving in 3-5 days'). I live in central NC...

    Fret height concerns

    I am in love with my '52 AVRI from Wildwood. It has a roasted maple neck. Quite thick, which I quite enjoy. Actually, it is a dream guitar. I feel horrible to say this but I feel I am not as quite in love as I could be! This is my first guitar with jumbo frets. And after 30 days of rock solid...

    And now for something completely different and useless...

    I just joined this forum less than 30 days ago and really love it. Really an amazing wealth of knowledge. So, I am going to bore about 99.9% of you. The TDPRI.com logo in the upper left hand corner reflects a guitar pick. And within the guitar pick are what they call 'speech balloons', commonly...

    Can anyone name the ditty that Greg Koch is playing in this video?

    There is a fantastic piece that Greg Koch plays in this YouTube video: It starts at about 4:34 (when he moves to the 5th fret and plays in A) and ends at 5:15 It is a chickin' pickin' style and I don't believe it is improv, it appears to follow a fixed pattern as if it is a classic song...

    New Gear Day! '52 AVRI roasted maple neck

    My ’52 AVRI Tele Butterscotch Blonde with roasted neck came in today at 1:00 pm EST and I just finished playing. The neck just feels so amazing. My first Telecaster ever. I got very lucky, I totally am in love with the sound and feel of it. Hopefully these pics give it justice. I feel that the...

    Asking for some ownership advice regarding new guitars

    Good morning everyone!! I am new to the board but wanted to announce that I will finally be the proud owner of a new guitar that is coming over the weekend. I’ve only owned 3 electrics in my life, all used and abused. But I have a brand new Tele coming in from Wildwood and it will be my very...
