Re: Now Buying All Used Pedals and Pickups

Mr. Whammy, (or mrwhammy if you prefer), I'm not certain if this will qualify as "name-brand pickups", but I would like to offer a set of pickups from a Classic Player 60s Stratocaster (MIM) prewired in a mint green pickguard for your consideration. And if you will forgive the long post, I'll try to...

Re: Been learning guitar 3 years, still nowhere, please help?

Welcome to Guitarnoise! You are in a very safe place among friends who can either offer guidance or companionship along the way. Like you, I am an adult learner with approximately 3 years under my belt. However, I have no prior musical background from which to draw. So I will offer this small bit of...

Re: question about fuzz

If I remember my algebraic formula correctly:

(AC50 + Muffπ) + (Volume * 10) = (Hearing * 0)

Enjoy your new amp!

Re: Distortion pedals WANTED

Preacher, I will be posting an ad within the week to sell all my pedals because I'm moving to a multi-effects unit. All are clean, fully working units, with no scratches or missing knobs. They were only used in my basement and do NOT have velcro on the bottoms. Each will be shipped with the original...

Re: Hi, I just to sign up.

With no money for parts and no free time for repairs, I'd say Batman is up the Pearl River without a paddle and Maroon'd on Pedal Island. :?

Re: To justify lessons

Fish, I just caught your post and the replies a moment ago. All are confirming what you already know. A teacher along with a regimented practice schedule will accelerate your learning curve. There is one bit of advice I would like to add: the teacher works for YOU. Keep that in mind when you go to t...

Re: An idea for beginners/early intermediates.

Excellent idea! Count me in. I'm looking at this as a way to explore a style of playing / genre of music I wouldn't normally attempt.

Re: Computer NERD needed

Not hard at all? Sheesh, don't tell the people that pay me good money to fix things. I think before you judge the difficulty of what I do you need to walk a mile in my binary shoes...and I forgot to include LANs, WANs, Servers and PBXs in my original rant. It's all clear to me now.

I posted this not too long ago on flying with a guitar:

Like you, I travel a good bit for business and this solution has been effective and didn't cost a great deal of money.

Re: tube amp question

People keep suggesting to me that I visit a music store and try out the amps on my wishlist, but as a very green new guitar player it is a bit daunting to waltz into Sam Ash, plug a nice guitar into a $600+ amp and then start playing pentatonic scales! I guess I should work on some blues licks for ...
