Re: Hmm... I need some sort of roadmap?

"IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING ANY ROAD WILL GET YOU THERE" I find and you may as well that as you learn guitar your mucical taste is adjusted. Mine is usually toards stuff I am capable or nearly capable of playing. When given advice on leaning what I liked was not necesarily what I needed. ...

Re: Beginner's videos

Daven,

Good work! I am impressed with the singing and playing(at the same time). I have jsut begun to try and sing & play and I find it is as challenging as it is embarrassing.

Re: Playing for a year..

I am now finished year 2. I spent the last year essentially focusing on mostly lead electric guitar so I got down with pentatonic scales at various positions. I recently changed to a new teacher and I am focusing on more acoustic style and having fun with it. Barr chords were and still are a challan...

Re: Tele advice needed

Coincidentally there is a custom Tele for sale on my local kijiji site for around $100.00. I don't really know much about P-90s though. I can't really contact the seller today though since I am leaving town for a week or so tomorrow. Maybe it will still be available when I get back. I do like the tr...

Re: Tele advice needed

All good comments guys!! I think you may be making my decision harder. Now I am considering a nice used Squire or MIM Tele and possibly replacement pickups. This would probably be significantly cheaper too. Any thoughts on replacemt pickups for Squire teles. Also when people say to try a few to see ...

Re: Tele advice needed

Thanks for the info guys!! I went and played a HWY with Tex Mex pickups and one of the new Special American ones and I think I liked the Special one a little better. Although I was plugged into some amp the size of my car and I would like to try them on something more modist like what I have at home...

Tele advice needed

I recently bought a Hagstrom Viking. Very nice guitar btw But while I got it setup (2 week wait). I decided to rent a MIM Tele. Renting a guitar for a month is a 30 day sales pitch I think. Well the tele goes back tomorrow and I am thinking I really like Teles. So now I am looking into getting one b...

Re: Why are you a guitarist

Good Posts. I am ashamed to to say my reason for playing is Guitar Hero. I got a cheap Gibson Hummingbird copy from Sears when I was about 12 but just did not learn anything. I spent many years thinking I was "musically challenged". Two years ago the kids got a Wii for Christmas and I thought Guitar...

1980's Fighter Tele???

I just saw this add on my local kijiji site but I can not find much info on the guitar. Has anyone ever heard of a Fighter Tele? The add says it is a Japanese Tele so I thought it might be worth looking into for $375. http://halifax.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-musical-instruments-guitars-COOL-COLLECTAB...

Guitar Karaoke/Chords

I was youtubing a Beatles song the other day to play along with and the Karaoke version came up with the words and all. As I am sure you all know there are tons of these on youtube. They made me wonder if anyone ever thought to put the words with the chords above on youtube in the forum we are all f...

Re: Need To Make It Last

I am so jealous about the Digital drums. They have a set at the local guitar er music store and every time I take the kids in they just love playing on them. I thought I had my 7 year old ready to ask his mom if he can take lessons but he hasn't yet. If I suggest it she will know I just want a new t...

Re: It's official, I'm old

I thououghly enjoyed this thread!! I do enjoy a good rant. Although I have to youtube Garbage in minute just to see what I am missing. My house is awash with Disney Pop music lately too. My daughter just won't give the Stones a chance.
