Heard this for the first time in a long time yesterday and spent some time with it:
I've got it, mostly, but one small thing is bugging me. Who passes a crockpot? That sh*t will burn your hands. Joking.
In the verse, the first chord is an E, and the second is some kind of D (reference...
I love the crazy freak out solo in "Seen The Light" by Supergrass. About 1:45 below:
What's your guess on what effects are on his guitar? A fuzz and a guitar synth of some kind?
Can any of you folks recreate the sound?
So I've finished about 6 guitars now (typically using rattlecan nitro from Reranch or Stewmac- I know some think that's not really nitro...). I have gotten varying results, from not so great to pretty good. I get to a shine that's good enough for me, but there are often tiny scratches. Not...
I'm working on a body I finished with Colortone lacquer from Stewmac.
Finished spraying clear 15 days ago. Tried some wetsanding today- water with a couple drops of dawn in it using P800 waterproof sandpaper. The paper is loading a bit- little globs on the paper even with regular rinsing...
SUPER OFF TOPIC:
So after my zillionth frustrating experience with Trimming grass around the homestead that the lawnmower can't get to, I have a question: Does ANYONE have a weedwacker they like?
With mine, I never get through doing the job without 1. having to charge the battery (NBD, Get...
In lieu of watching Arsenal lose again, and with all due apologies to @Buckocaster51, I believe I'm beginning a new build. I am a hack with crappy tools and not much experience, so learn from my mistakes and laugh at me!
I've really been hankering for a double-bound 60's style tele in a bright...
I'm looking to achieve this color (link):
With cheapo rattle can spray paint (Rustoleum and Krylon are the brads most available where I live).
I know there's tons of variation in cameras, etc. but just for the heck of it, I'd love to see pix of your opaque ORANGE guitar, ideally with the...
Looking for a solid color double bound tele with a white pickguard- thinking of fiesta red-ish, daphne blue-ish.
I thought I remembered a Squier classic vibe fitting this description.
Honestly just looking for the correct search terms.
Los Lobos, "Evangeline", off their first record. It's 1-4-5 (ish) in D.
Where do you play the intro lick? Thne rest all kinda flows from there. I've sort of come to two different spots:
1. The major pent based on the d barre chord built off of the 5th fret A string root (mostly between 7th...
Hot Legs, you know it, you love it, maybe you hate it:
I'm working on the lick starting at 0:17 or so. Obviously there are (at least) two guitars there playing that little countryish lick. Are they just doing octaves? Sometimes I feel like it sounds like a more complex harmony, but after...
A 50 year old guy who started playing at age 13
Relatively unschooled, though I've learned more about chord theory/harmony, etc. in the last 10 years than all of my previous years combined
I never know how to describe my skill, but I've been around a little, never a pro or anything. For...
I've been playing for 35+ years, and I can make my way around rock/blues/country OK (basic chord theory/ blues/major pent/myxolydian, etc). But my pinky is relatively useless. Watching Tom Bukovac videos has given me profound pinky shame.
What have you done to make your pinky a useful...
Just got a 2011 Dr. Z Maz 18 Non Reverb on Reverb- the 2 x 10" version, blonde tolex. Can't wait to get it and try it. This has been my dream amp for years- I've played many and loved every one. And the company is local- I'm in the Cleveland Area. I will update with pix and stuff as I have...
One of the best American bands of my lifetime. Just fabulous musicianship, and a great live show (saw them at the Vogue in the Indy, and the lead playing was ferocious and face melting- one of the best guitar nerd shows I've ever seen.
I think they also have something to say. I'm typically...
Hello. Hope everyone is staying safe (and able to pay their bills).
I had a recent thread about my homebrew 5F6A- I had a bad recto tube. Weird. In any case, while I had the chassis on the bench I had another issue surface, and I wanted to gather opinions about it. I'm thinking it's a bad...
So I'm generally of the belief that most pedals are largely based on pre-existing designs. I'm wondering about the Xotic AC Booster.
I've heard it's a modified tubescreamer, that it's supposed to sound Voxy (I guess because of the "AC").
-Homebrew 5F6A, used without incident for a year or so
-Playing it the other night, hitting it pretty hard with a Klon style pedal, a boost, and a fuzz
-It just died
-Fuse was blown so I replaced it
-Amp still dead
I assume I should just go through the normal startup process (I printed...
I've been looking at these. Because there's not that much new under the sun, I'm just wondering if anybody knows what the two sides of this pedal are. These have been around for a long time, so maybe visual sound was first.
So is the O/d side a tubescreamer and the Distortion side an OCD or...
Great song, eh? So I wanted to see how anybody plays the descending lead part in the intro. Starts at 0:10 in the video below, then repeats a whole step higher.
So I've got the melody, but can't quite figure out the other note of the double stops. Any ideas?
Man these guys were so good.
