Thank you for your kind words!

I need to learn more about this recording caper... I just kinda left everything on neutral, but I think I will need to adjust settings to cope with both quieter and "belty" singing in one song.

Any suggestions where is best to learn these things for someone who wants the absolute basics?
What I lack in talent and natural ability, I will have to make up with stubborness.

I promised myself I would one day post something here.

Be gentle. :shock:

It's a shame this thread died. I just registered here and really liked this thread at the beginning.

Great videos! I need some encouragement before I do what I have planned: I want to restring my acoustic guitar the wrong way around- low E on top and so on. Why ? because I am a converted left hander ( thanks, German school system) and feel wrong playing the normal way. Is that feasible? have other people done that? Any advice?

There are players who do so. There are even players like Otis Rush, who plays left handed but with the strings reversed.

One thing you'll have to adjust to if you play "upside down" is that the sound of the guitar is very different. When you strum it will be the higher pitched strings that will get most of the emphasis and accent instead of the lower. If your goal is to play a lot of rock or metal type music, then you'll have to adjust your playing in ways few other people do. It's not impossible to do (obviously, since others do it) but it is often counter-intuitive for people.

Can't help asking: Why not just play a left handed guitar?

Welcome to Guitar Noise, by the way. Hope to see you around here on the Forum pages.

Peace

My brothers and sisters were teasing me about me being mom's favorite . . .
"momma's boy" . . . I think was tossed out by one of them . . .

I told them I had a song for that . . .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMsNEOs ... tu.be&t=8s

Played it twice as fast as I should have (to get it over with)
and in a key higher than I should have . . .

"You weren't your momma's only boy, but her favorite one it seems"
It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Isabelle, I tried to play your video but it would not play. Says it has been deleted or taken down. Is your video still up in photobucket? Is it shown anywhere else. I would really like to see it. I started taking lessons (again) about a month ago and am trying to connect with others, learning, so that we can help each other feel better aobut the journey :-). Lemme know if your video is still available to be seen somewhere, please. Would like to see it! Thanks (and others who are new at this also! :-) )

I know its been awhile since 2007, but are you guys still posting guitar videos? Photobucket would not allow me to see them. Bummer. Would like to know how you have progressed. Thanks.

There are 1076 posts in 72 pages. Just review them and follow the links or the images. Some videos are old and maybe the authors removed them.

Two Thousand and Seven... Ahh, those were the days. We were all so young (well, some of us), foolish, naive, had darker hair.. and thought we could rule the world and learn guitar....

Many have fallen by the wayside. Guitar Noise dot Com still flourishes and Mr Hodge still steering the helm with impeccable accuracy I see with a cutting edge website. Are they still stopping you from posting lessons? Musical correctness gone mad!

For us newbies it was a journey of discovery which in my case ground to a halt - scuppered along the coral reef of life and all 'things' that get in the way of pleasure.

Where is the fun and enjoyment we used to get from watching all those stiff little fingers trying to stretch along the fret board with limited success, excrutiating sounds of un-tuned and buzzing strings, not to mention the wailing that accompanied the other noises....

I just couldn't improve and didn't have the time (usual excuse) to devote to the guitar. Plus it really hurt my fingers so I went back to the keyboard. But I do miss the good old six string (of which many are strewn around the house - all out of tune).

I decided it was time to delete my YouTube videos I made of my guitar journey, but just couldn't bring myself to press the button. I then found the Stella - one of the original Rat Pack posted a video only last year so we are still alive and kicking it seems.

I still class myself as a beginner, especially as I'd have to learn again pretty much from scratch so you never know...

To the Rat Pack who probably will never read this post - I miss you all.

Rock on!

Hey Dylan

"Long time, no see" seems way too much a cliché, but I guess there are reasons some things become cliché.

Good to hear from you again and sorry to hear you're no longer playing guitar. But it sounds like music is still a part of your life, so that's encouraging. Maybe you're interested in lessons via Skype or FaceTime?

Anyway, please feel free to pop in whenever you've a spare moment. It's always good to catch up. Hopefully there will be room for the guitar in your future.

Peace
