    Bad Guitar / Hair Day(s)

    I'd like to sound good, feel good, find my way to express myself and my tone. I can assemble a Fuzz pedal, but never play like Jimi did. And when getting more clarity gear wise, flaws become more noticeable. Also when going with the flow and feel (but not having solid technique..) it's kind of...

    Bad Guitar / Hair Day(s)

    Well, I've played piano. And that's where my dislike of music theory is coming from. Like.. if you want meto play certain note, why can't you just tell so? Instead, having weird markings at the start and assuming I'll remember all those through the song, sheesh.. 😆 Fortunately our children do...

    Bad Guitar / Hair Day(s)

    That's real good point too. As long we can hear, we can enjoy the music. And I will. I'm better at enjoying than producing 😁 The other thing came to my mind. All we have some better and worse days at work too. Hopefully everyone's not seeing it through me (managing & stuff & ****). But now...

    Bad Guitar / Hair Day(s)

    That's a really good advice when things get rougher. Go to bed early, get some good sleep and wake up tomorrow.

    Bad Guitar / Hair Day(s)

    Wow, that sounds awesome! Maybe motivation wasn't my question. More like how to recover when thought reached some level. Then after few more takes, thinking it was just good luck. I'm recording myself and all I'm hearing is mistakes and flaws and shortcomings. Maybe it's just a phase, need to...

    Bad Guitar / Hair Day(s)

    I'm not pro or even a semi. And I have almost no hair left, so potential guitar hero days are mostly gone. But I like to listen skilled / soulful guitar players playing music. I like guitar shaped instruments and then I like to try to create somtehing by myself too. But how do you guys feel it...

    Backing Track Shuffle Thing

    Sounds great! I'm replacing the strings (and trying to figure out who I am ..slash.. what should I try to play), so maybe tomorrow. Basic level existential crisis, nothing serious 😄

    Midweek Backing Track(s) - Your Choice 01.26.22

    Sounds good! I know very well what you mean. And I should go back to having multiple takes too, and thinking some more and not rushing. If I just barely try play it through once or twice, mix it right away and try put it on the air as fast as I can.. it may sound like ok'ish right then.. with...

    Thank you both! Been too busy and late home lately, so had to go with Palmer pocket amp + headphones. Some fuzz & stuff on front of it, though. Tone Bender style this time.

    Thanks, made a little one. Used Ge-Fuzz Face as 'clean boost', guitar volume rolled back.

    Backing Track Challenge - 337 Ballad

    @boop : Smooth and subtle tone. Agree with Udoering, you've got certain pace creating own atmosphere there, almost like Spanish guitar runs. @ASATKat : Mellow tone, I don't know how those licks are called in English, but like gypsy music at times. @bullfrogblues : Great and mostly clean, almost...

    Backing Track Challenge - 337 Ballad

    Thanks, yeah it's kinda Fusion/mess -model. First idea was Custom style, but didn't find suitable / reasonable priced body from Europe. Brexit was coming closerand and went with Thinline body which was available in UK. New production Fender WRHB neck, Tele(ish) style HB bridge with Fralin P-92...

    @bullfrogblues : Different style than others, I hear psychedelic rock influences and sitar like vibes, cool effects.

    Backing Track Challenge - 337 Ballad

    @telekaster1999 : Baritone sound drops nicely between bass and brighter guitar tones there. @Mikejazz : Nice overdriven tone with clean part still present. Nice runs and skillful playing. @Phrygian77 : I like the tone, kind of fat and overdriven, but still airy. Emotive playing. @ASATKat : Clean...

    Can bad pots/switches/jacks/wiring affect max guitar volume?

    Have you replaced the strings? I think it's rare, but I've heard about some odd imported strings that are not magnetic enough. And therefore pickup signal can be weak. Edit: Never mind, I read it wrong first.. you've already opened the guitar and everything. Not the strings we can assume.

    Backing Track Challenge - 337 Ballad

    @fendrguitplayr : Nice clean tone and groovy playing. @bgmacaw : Great to hear you're ok. Subtle and organic tone, sounds good. Agree with Mellencaster. @Mjark : Nice 'spongy & springy' tone, I like the flow and nuances, beautiful runs. @Alan L Cole : Alan L Cole meets ballad, really nice...

    Telebody with unique forearm contour ...

    That must be the Hendrix's Purple Haze Tele body!

    Backing Track Challenge - 337 Ballad

    @udoering : Sounds absolutely beautiful, taste and skill. To be honest, I try to listen and learn from your tracks most of the time. @alainvey : Sounds so smooth, what a gentle bluesy touch, I really like your vibe and those nuances. @NWinther : Also tonally smooth, but still recognizable...

    Thanks Mellencaster. Today I tried to concentrate on tone and micing the amp. And especially like.. not going overboard. Still feels difficult, depending on device I'm listening. Hope it sounds ok with your gear & stuff. On the right side (the cleaner guitar) is my Thinliner Partscaster and on...

    Track is beautiful. Then there's sadness in that Galadriel quote and song title..
