giving the meteora the exact same pickups and wiring as a tele
putting the jazz/jag vibrato on a strat and tele
autistic maybe, but definitely low functioning. no imagination, no innovation, no logic behind these choices. fucking wasted.

Connor Murphy
Connor Murphy

I dig the Troublemaker and kind of the Meteora, if it had buckers.

Camden Williams
Camden Williams

They would've been better setting the meteora with jazzmaster pickups and vibrato, than putting tele stuff on the meteora, and jag stuff on the tele.

Cameron Bailey

Jace Fisher

I'd totally get the Jagstrat

so...
I'm 5'4", probably back to 180 lb from stress eating. currently 20, picked up guitar at 13.

right now I'm trying to build my finger speed. that's the one other thing I find lacking in my playing, along with knowledge of chords.

how much weight should I shed off so I can play faster? or would I need to lift too?

Jonathan Taylor
Jonathan Taylor

Shawn lane was fat as fuck

Jackson Nelson
Jackson Nelson

Pretty much finished with this beat, but I'm curious what it would sound like with a live bass (instead of the synth one). If you're into hiphop and got some spare time, i'd appreciate if anyone here could help out. Here's the track:

Chase Taylor

I bought an acoustic practice amp for £60 (Stagg 10w) . I'm going to make yet another go at learning guitar.
I got an electric acoustic guitar last year and its fucking criminal how I keep it sealed up in its bag.
Time to get it back out and dust it off, and dust myself off.

Owen Parker
Owen Parker

I'm 5'4", probably back to 180 lb from stress eating

Jesus fucking Christ, dude. Lose weight for your health.
Why would your body lard concentration would affect your playing? If you are dripping fat and you can't hold the neck of the guitar I would understand it, but I've known a lot of land whales with very good chops, besides the pork ones.

Thomas Hall
Thomas Hall

Bass VI, 8 string octave bass, or stop being autistic and just play four strings like a regular person

Leo Phillips

The Troublemaker looks sick though. Would buy over a Les Paul any day.
The Jaguar/Strat and Jazz Tele would be cool if they were done properly imo (e.g. pickguards don't follow body shape)
The other two look terrible.

Nathan Collins

I guess I already know that I'm out of shape, and it's affecting me in ways I forgot about. things like sleeping, breathing, climbing stairs; fuckin hell, my already small penis is getting sucked up by my crotch fat.
been doing finger exercises for some years now, and I'm still not as fast as I expect to be, like, 250+ bpm fast. I was guessing it's because my arms get tired so fast since I haven't been able to work out

Kevin Reyes

Matthew Thomas

Why

Gabriel Reyes

Mason Ramirez

same reason people still spend money on Gibsons. they're duped by marketing.

Henry Gutierrez

Start the cardio now and forget about your arms. Go to /fit/ and get some help there.
Your arms shouldn't get tired at all from playing guitar, you prolly have bad posture. Sit properly and strangle the guitar with your fingers.

Brayden Allen
Brayden Allen

strangle
like, keep my fingers as close to the fretboard as possible? whatchu mean

Jackson Foster

i'm out of shape too. are you the pains user? tried some exercises the other day and my performance was terrible

Brody Morris

Some people leave nail marks on the fretboard because they press down too hard, like they were strangling the neck of the guitar.
Are we talking about electric guitar here, classical or acoustic?

I can understand the Gibson thing as they have a rich heritage and a huge amount of music has been played on them, but Chapman has literally nothing going for it

Nathaniel Butler

James Gonzalez
James Gonzalez

I'm 5'4", probably back to 180 lb
Fucking how, man? The most I've ever been in my life was maybe 160, and that was after a couple of years of eating like a pig and not moving. I'm at 145 now and I still feel like a fat piece of shit who needs to lose at least another 10 pounds, have you been a porker all your life or something?

Gabriel Miller
Gabriel Miller

like I said, marketing. Chapman has absolutely saturated youtube in guitar-related content, puts on a cheerful persona and interacts with his audience. That's enough to make a lot of kids treat him like a fuckin demigod and take his word as gospel. And buy one of his guitars.
Some people might just be getting them because they see them as eh, decent midrange guitars you can mod if you want a guitar to put specific aftermarket pickups in, but I can't really abide that either. Just get a 2nd hand PRS SE if you want a midrange guitar to mod.

Tyler Reyes
Tyler Reyes

I believe they're made in the same Korean factory that does prs se and maybe some ibanez

Jayden Morris

How tall are you?

Jace Murphy
Jace Murphy

I just really love food... instant noodles in particular. shit's the bomb, man; been binging on two packs a day all December, which really sped up the process.

I was 200 lb at most when I was 13, until a very pretty lady came into the picture. long story short, I cut 80 lb in 2 months.

that was the best I've ever felt, and it fucking sucks looking at all the clothes I can't fit again

Angel Howard
Angel Howard

Sit properly and don't arch your back. Just keep practicing and try to check the setup of your guitar. Maybe the action is too high, but that wouldn't explain why your arms get tired, but your fingers.

Connor Martin
Connor Martin

Start smoking cigs. You'll eat less

Brandon Ward
Brandon Ward


thats how powerful marketing is

Jordan Hill
Jordan Hill

tfw been playing guitar for 10 years and i'm still using my 200$ shit e-guitar that weighs 15kg, and my western guitar that is out of tune beyond the 4th fret.

I can't decide whether i should get a new acoustic guitar (western OR classical) or an e-guitar first. And whether i should get a mid budget one first around 800 bucks or go straight for a 1800$ Telecaster

Suffering.
Also have no fucking idea about brands whatsoever when it comes to classical guitars. I heard Cordoba is good, but all their guitars are specifically built for Flamenco style.

Juan Smith
Juan Smith

I thought it was pretty obvious, full manlet. If I was any taller than him, the numbers wouldn't make any sense, right?

200lbs as a kid, yikes. This is why you don't let your kids eat nothing but ice cream.

I'm glad my parents were sane. Growing up, I was always a healthy weight, it's only when I started making food myself that I started piling it on.

Blake James
Blake James

Nah

Ayden Reyes
Ayden Reyes

ha... wish that were true for me.
food remains my top addiction. turned into a pack-a-day smoker the last 6 months.

hmm yeah I always do slouch to the max whenever I'm on a chair

is justinguitars beginner/intermediate courses enough? ive got most of the major chords down, including barres. what i need to work on are my changes and timing. simply practicing 1:1 changes and working with a metronome should be enough? ive started working on some of the basic penatonic scales too.

Colton Turner

Lucas Foster
Lucas Foster

We signed under a band name and then changed the name for better marketing before the record was released. We finished recording and went on tour while Rise handled distribution. So we’re expecting to get money from sales while on the road but the checks never came and when my singer asked about it they told us that we didn’t own any rights to the album because we signed under a different name. We sold about 130,000 albums and didn’t see a dime. I actually quit while we were stuck in Florida, I fucking bussed home to Oregon with all my gear.

Has anyone else had bad experiences with Epiphones? I can only get my hands on budget guitars, so no Gibsons, but I even prefer other budget brands to Epiphones. I'll take a Squier, Fender MIM, Ibanez, Yamaha, literally anything other than an Epiphone, anyday of the week. I've played or owned five Epiphones and they never "Wowed" me. The necks on the two that I owned actually ended up warping rather quickly and one had a cracked body (cosmetic, yeah but still). I had heard they were hit or miss guitars, but I've never had such a poor experience with any other brand, even cheaper ones.
I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't like them. I'd be willing to try a Gibson Les Paul or SG, but Epiphone? Am I alone here?
[spoiler]Also, having trouble getting into Jazzmasters, Jaguars, and Mustangs, especially after reading about all the problems they tend to have.[/spoiler]

Seriously speaking though, if you could get lessons in person from either an actual music teacher or someone you trust that'd be the ideal way of learning. I've always considered Youtube a complementary way to learn just a few tricks or songs I have trouble with, but I would never rely on it for the important learning. Think of this as if you were learning to speak a language, there might be youtubers teaching you to say a few Chinese words but you will definitely not be able to go to China and dialogue with people there just with that.

I used to be one of those guys who considered himself the smartest guy in town and I was sure I'd learn everything with just Youtube, and soon I realized I was wrong. I went to a teacher and in two years I was already capable of playing modes. Meanwhile youtubers can't even teach you scales properly.

It all depends on how far you want to go with guitar anyway.

Justin Green

no budget guitar is going to wow you. fender mim is more in line with epiphone custom or tribute.

Thomas Perry
Thomas Perry

Since I only play budget guitars (or at least not extremely high end ones), I guess it would've been more correct to say that everything I've ever played has been better than the Epiphones I've played. They've "wowed" me more than an Epiphone. Even my old Squier bullet lasted longer and played harder than any Epiphone I've touched.

Hunter Campbell

how often would you suggest taking lessons? weekly? bi-weekly?

Weekly

different guitars for different folks but you shouldnt base your opinion just on the base level guitars.

Jaxon Jones
Jaxon Jones

that is exactly what i said

Ian Richardson
Ian Richardson

Depends on how often you visit him and how good you think he actually is. Does he actively push you forward and ensures you are progressing, or is he one of those faggots who spends a whole class telling you how to position your hand and checks his twitter while tells you to practice scales in front of him? I'd say 50-60 bucks a month for weekly classes is a fair deal.
If you are beginner, weekly. You might need a whole week to practice and memorize what your teacher just taught you.

What is is with metal autists online? Every time I find a cheap combo amp I want to use for gigging I look it up. Almost every time the comments are "it's SHIT for metal. the onboard effects are trash. Save up and buy a real amp."
I'm constantly getting cold feet on buying.

the vox head? it's okay, gonna replace the tubes with some mullards and i'm gonna put either a greenback or alnico blue in the cab and that supposedly does wonders. I don't really crank it too much, and generally keep it attenuated to 1/4 watt while recording. It's got the attenuator that switches between 1/4, 1, and 4 watt. Perfect for small studio work or practice at home.

Gonna be looking at a different head soon, maybe an orange micro terror or micro dark. I'd like something that does a metal/industrial heavy fuzz/distortion a little better.

What guitar should I buy?
I don't want to spend more than $250 cause I'm a poor college student.

I'd be willing to buy used. Is there any things to look for when I'm buying used? Thanks in advance, I'd appreciate any help I could get on this.

checking it out right now, but correct me if I'm wrong, don't you need a lot of headroom to hear the articulation of heavy distortion? My vox has zero headroom. It starts breaking up immediately, with the volume barely up at all. That's why I'm thinking of going with an entirely different head altogether
I want to be able to produce a very sterile high gain chug sound reminiscent of what you'd hear in 2000's djenty numetal. I've got a PRS Custom 24 w/metal pups and floyd rose coming soon.

Asking this here because /prod/ is dead and won't answer

I'm experimenting with analogue recording and I''m wondering: would it be possible to use a graphic EQ guitar pedal as a regular EQ for other instuments (drums, synths, vocals, etc) or would it sound like absolute ass?

Alexander Rivera
Alexander Rivera

honestly i like this guitar a lot. you guys gave a lot of hate, fuck you

Tyler Evans

I'm assuming the MXR 10 band can manage line level.
I doubt it'd sound like ass. You'd definitely be able to EQ your other instruments so that they sound better than they would without any EQ'ing, but it's still not going to give you the definition or level of control you'd get in a DAW.

Julian Torres
Julian Torres

it's still not going to give you the definition or level of control you'd get in a DAW
That's fine, since I'm trying to record with relatively cheap analogue equipment I'm not aiming for perfect.
