Wassup, homies! I make beats in my bedroom with a Casiotone Deluxe. My homies are dissin' me 'cuz my beats have no cred, so I was figuring that if I looped some clawpicking I might get some hotties in my crib. You feel me, dawg? Can a Telecaster hook me up?

See, you got it backwards.

You know, had somebody told me 30 years ago I could make a living with a drum machine, some nursery rhymes and my deadbeat cousins hanging around all the time I'd have thought they were as crazy as the guy that said he was going to bottle water and sell it for the same price as soda pop.

Hah! Maybe it's time to start a new thread that strips out the genre part and just says "Can you play a Telecaster?"

Good idea, because it's REALLY hard to try to post hip hip slang without breaking so many rules that rules that don't even exist here would get broken as well.

Seriously, though. I was trying to lay down some 70s-style funk chops on my tele but lack any skill or talent. Is there a way I could re-route the body and install some rubber pads so I can just trigger samples from old records?

Something like this?

Leo envisioned this back in the 50's. All Teles have a death chip that will activate if hip hopped upon.
