Re: Recomended Blues Albums

I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this one already but I think Eric Clapton's album 'Five long Years' is some of his best blues work. It hardly ever gets taken out of my cd player. 8) Never heard of it. Can't find any info on it either. Do you mean the song 'five long years' on the album 'from the c...

Re: Recomended Blues Albums

If you're going for acoustic or 'front porch' blues you can't go wrong with some Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, and John Lee Hooker. Unfortunately its difficult to pinpoint specific albums because back in the day releasing albums was much less structured. So it might be easier to stick to compila...

Identify the recording. (Blues fans please help)

Hey guys. I heard this pretty cool blues instrumental on the radio last night that I'm trying to identify. It's got a few riffs that I'd love to figure out including a very cool distinct slide verse. I recorded the last minute of it using a tiny microphone. Here's what I recorded: http://h1.ripway.c...

Questions from a first time E-bayer.

Hi. Could someone explain how reserve options work. I know it means that the seller reserves the right not to sell if the bidding doesn't reach a certain price. But how does it work in practice. If I win an auction at a price below the reserve does that mean my bid doesn't count, or does it mean tha...

Then why not ask the nice store to get the strings you like, or buy them online? I agree with Biker Jim. Why give them the satisfaction of laughing at people and their business? I'm sure you have your reasons for going there, but if enough people stood up to them, it might send a message. Then agai...

Sounds like you need to find a new store, just because they carry a certain string is no reason to stay loyal to them. I'm not loyal. I only buy strings from there. I buy everything else from another store, with very professional and friendly staff. Besides there's only two guitar stores in my town.

Thanks for the advice fellas. Like most of you said for the price of a string it isn't worth making a fuss so I won't. The truth is I already have a very bad relationship with the people at the store. The store is full of @#%&#$&s. A clique of teenagers laughing in the store that wouldn't pay attent...

I think so. I've changed strings on other guitars dozens of times.

It's a squier 51, it doesn't get more standard than that. Besides it was only one string that wouldn't stay in tune.

Should I compain at the guitar store

I changed the strings on my new guitar. I played for a maximum of 2 hours (spread across 2 or 3 days) and a string snapped. Towards the end I noticed that the high E wouldn't stay in tune after any bends. 2 bends and it would go half a step flat. I retuned it once and did a few bends, had to retune ...

Too many hammer-ons and pull-offs?

I don't know what this is, maybe it's a mixture of a rant and a request for advice. I've been playing now for about 2.5 years. I got my first electric a year ago so I've been trying to learn lead guitar for a year now. I'm mainly into blues and blues rock music. I spend most of my practice time impr...
