Re: Am I guitarist?

I've found it hard to keep interested lately, mostly because my wrists, hands, and fingers are perpetually banged up as of the last two years or so.

Re: Check in, been a while

Sounds like it. I do miss the social aspect at this place for sure.

Check in, been a while

Hey guys. Vic suggested I check in, and I'm pleasantly surprised at the amount of you I remember from when I was active often on here. I'm playing still, mostly rhythm guitar, usually along with singing and drinking. As far as everything else goes, I'm training in air traffic control now and posing ...

Re: Picking up the guitar again

Thanks guys, missed hanging around here. I did get something cool for Christmas-a Ukulele. Hoping I can pick it up with some help from here :)

Picking up the guitar again

Hi all, I'm Ethan, been posting here on and off since I've been about 14. Just recently started playing in earnest again at 20, on much the same equipment as I had. Right now, I'm playing a lot of Santana on the electric and a lot of typical bar fare on the acoustic. My singing is still awful, but a...

Re: learn guitar with injured fret-hand ring finger?

Just for fun I read through that thread I made about injuring myself.

All good now, I'm glad to say. Spent today playing Santana solo's. Not quite like it never happened but better than I hoped.

Line 6 mixer.

http://www.long-mcquade.com/products/4157/Pro_Audio_Recording/Soundcards/Line_6/POD_Studio_UX2.htm What do you guys think of this rig? I use Reaper, if that matters, I have an AKG XLR mic and I'd say I mic the amp about half the time, the rest I'd run direct in. (I use an Epi tube amp, not real loud...

Re: learn guitar with injured fret-hand ring finger?

I shredded my picking hand index finger, ruined both tendons. 90% movement bottom knuckle, 40% middle, none at the top, I play fine. Takes some adapting and I need two fingers planted to bend any more than a half step but I play better lead now than I did before.

Put your lights on-Santana

I've been playing I promise! haha Anyway, I've been messing around with blues progressions a lot lately while at the same time, teaching my sister who sings some rhythm guitar. I decided we'd try this one and I'm surprised at how nicely and easily this plays. Nice one about this is it sits alone jus...

Absent for a bit

I've been playing again lately and figured I'd drop back in. Been talking to Vic on facebook, lost contact with everyone else sadly. Got back into martial arts bigtime, own and operate a school now. Competing in Saint-Pierre, gradings, training 5 days a week, been busy. :D Anyway, how have you guys ...

Re: How important are scales?

The thing is, they are music. Knowing how to play music is a different beast from just playing the guitar. Can you explain that a little? Going up and down a scale is music to you? I don't think you meant to be sarcastic although it kind of came across that way, so here's a bit of expansion. Music ...

Re: Off Topic, but a rant I've gotta get out

This is terrible...Amazing someone could hide this.

I am curious about the wrestling business, though.
