I retract my previous posts. Greybeard, you are correct and that is what I meant. I confused myself. Still, I think he figured it out. Thanks for pointing that out.

You are correct in talking pitch. However, I stated move the scale up the neck two frets in position and that would be the correct position. Seemed like an easier way to eplain it at the time. Point is he understands it now.

I doubt you'll scratch the tail piece by doing it. Give it a try and see what you think. The only thing you have to loose is the price of a set of strings if you don't like it.

If you have the A major, you have every major scale. For the G major, just move the scale up the neck two frets and you're there.

1) I don't think most people would notice any difference at all. There's a ton of information out there on it and I'm not convinced. I set mine up with the proper action and leave it. As long as the tail piece is in far enough to be secure, you're good. 2) Again, lots of info on the net about it. Th...

If you have a version of an LP, the stop bar tail piece will come off if you remove all the strings. Just pay attention to it so you can put it back on right. Also the bridge will not have any tension on it and will raise or lower very easily if you bump it.

Try to get in the habit of having your hand float over the strings. It will feel really strange at first but will come with a little practice. At the same time, I say to use the blade of your picking hand to mute strings you don't want to sound especialy with overdrive. I find that the higher string...

Here's one way to look at it. what are you going to be more interested in come ten years down the road? I doubt skateboarding is going to be to important to you when you're say 25 or 30 years old. Music ability will last you a life time. You just have to put you priorities in line. Nothing says you ...

I pay $15 for half an hour. I would split it up. Gives you more practice time in between. sometimes I get new things to work on and sometimes a week is a long time to wait if I have a question about something. On the otherhand a half hour goes by so fast at times it seems like we don't get much cove...

Adjsust the nuts. They look like ribbed wheels. There really is no way to turn the bolts. You may have to loosen the strings to release the tension on the bridge.

On both sides of the bridge you will find a wheel, dial, nut, whatever you want to call it. It's as simple as screwing it up or down. It will be parallel with the body of the guitar and just over the posts that hold the bridge on.

You'll just need to play with the distortion on your amp to see if you get a tone you like. If not, go to a local shop and try out any pedal you can get your hands on and see if you like it. Every pedal will sound different through a different amp. Boss pedals seem to be pretty common. They make sev...

Learn and practice different fingerings for as many chords as you can. Then when you play a progression use the fingerings that require the least amount of movement. There may be a standard way to finger a chord but there is no right or wrong way as long as it covers the notes.

I think the accoustic requires better and cleaner technique than an electric especially with a little overdrive on. I find that if I practice a technique on my accoustic and get it right, it's much easier on my electric. For that reason I tend to use my accoustic more for "practice" and my electric ...
