The differences between a Squier and a custom are build quality variations (some Squiers will be as good as customs, some will be shit) and subjective pickup tonal differences (custom's pickups will be different, not better).

I thought you were arguing at the beginning that it sounds better and feels better to spend assloads more? Now its "I appreciate the little things".

So guys, I'm in what you might call a pickle. So I just got a cheap bass guitar to practice on and it's cool and all but, I have fingernails. So I play classical guitar, and I have fairly short finger nails for that. They were longer but I started playing piano and needed them to be fairly short but now it's looking like I'll need to cut them even shorter. Does this make me gay?

Wyatt Harris

or just classical guitar

Does this make me gay?
I'd say classical guitar is a lil less gay than bass so yeah sure

I was in this pickle too I just cut my nails and started playing other instruments
not that it was a big sacrifice or anything I wasn't great at fingerstyle

just pick whatever you're the best at and give the others up at least for the moment imo

idk i just can't do it. regardless it feels like shit to me, even just doing basic chords or playing classical it doesn't feel right
also the fact you have to tie the fucking strings on the bridge is autistic, i can see why it was like that before because they pretty much had to but it can't just have a ball end like the rest of them now?

Plan for Gibson to crumble this year and wait for it to Lee Iacocca-tier restructure itself into a better brand, then as they should hopefully be less overpriced by that point

Well the ball end thing is a good point but as far as it feeling like shit? It really doesn't as long as you have proper posture and hand placement. I hope to god you aren't trying to play it with the neck parallel to the floor.

I don't have a good record when it comes to giving things up. Liquor would be a good example. I'm gonna find some way to do all of them if it kills me.

be me
born with perfect pitch (this is not something that can be learned)
every classical guitarist I've ever heard was woefully out of tune
every last god damn one of them
start learning guitar
realize the flat saddle on the classical guitar was probably mostly to blame
come to realize every classical guitarist must be a tone deaf mong
dismiss all classical guitar music with extreme prejudice
I'm just better than all of them desu

I get what you mean
when I started learning open chords and stuff it was on one of those wide necked ones so it was natural to me
so going to electric it could only really get easier cause it's less of a stretch
but for fingerpicking classical guitars are just leagues easier in my opinion

I can totally understand why you think that though, you've just gotten used to the distance between notes on an electric ykno

I dated this Russian immigrant that had been playing piano since a very young age. Her dad was super strict and disciplined with her. So needless to say, her wall was decorated with awards for her piano playing. She taught me some piano and I taught her guitar.
What was interesting was she couldn’t write her own music, I mean, she could write but she never finished anything or really had a drive to do anything with it. She would watch me play me and would always ask how I could write music that sounded happy.
Isn’t that strange? Anyways, thanks for reading anons.

God fucking damnit, user, you were so close.

You should check out 6 chords, they're pretty Christian-sounding.

Gavin Butler

Well you can use a dominate 7th if you want. Also I don't play Christian music, the joke is that Gsus sounds like Jesus.

Evan Gray

Which power chords should I go for that emo sound? How many should I learn?

Charles Barnes

You have to learn all the power chords first

Kevin Russell

Oh, I see.

Well I think you'd like 6 chords if you like major sevenths so much.

Learn all the naturals on the first twelve frets of the lowest two strings.

Don't worry, dude. I'm not having a go at you, I'm making an honest suggestion.

I think sixths would be your bag.

Dylan Anderson

Got a set of Gotohs on my Les Paul but I wanna switch out for locking tuners because I suck at stringing up. Thinking of Grovers but might get Gotohs.

Anthony Sanchez

Major 7ths have enough tension to make the voices go away

Alrighty then.

Joseph Gray

Sorry to cut in but if you add a diminished with a 7th it helps alleviate that problem.

Will I ever get good?

I'm worried all this work I'm putting in might be in vain if I just don't have it in me. I started learning how to play about a week ago, and I've been putting in a crazy amount of practice, doing things like wrapping my fingers in rubber band. Some Goku style training.

How long will it take me to be able to play this well? youtube.com/watch?v=AHyNENJsyhY

yeah I have the same problem
I'm always looking for instruments to buy because I never feel like I've found the perfect one for me

if I get enough money I'll probably buy a tenor sax
but then again, I'm kind of discouraged by experience with the clarinet because arpeggios and scales that cross registers PISS me the FUCK off

I asked the outspoken picker what it was about the Strat that has kept him so devoted to it all these years.
“Well, it’s kind of the original instrument,” said Yngwie. “Everything else is a copy of it, you know. All the Ibanez and stuff like that’s just a copy. It’s like a bad copy, really. It’s the same design but it’s a bad copy.
“I’m an original, very purist kinda guy,” he added, “that’s why I use Marshalls, Ferraris–whatever. I like the original stuff.”
And don’t even try mentioning Gibson’s finest around the devout Fender fanatic.
“Yeah, Les Paul’s nice bein’ a piece of furniture,” he replied. “It’s nice to look at. It wouldn’t survive five minutes with me on stage.”

G&l frens, pls tell me, should I buy the tribute series? I was thinking of getting a tribute legacy or hss, i want something that sounds more like a strat, to mfd pickups look and sound nice but I think I'll get a USA model in the future when I can afford it, doheny or s-500. So are the tributes complete Indonesian crap or are they worth the money?

Jordan Jones

no Taylor
You’re so fucking stupid for trying to meme agile into being a high quality brand.

they are half indonesian crap. The pickups are original G&L. They are very good.

Jose Davis

Have anybody here tried a Strat from Schecter or ESP or any similar company? I'm in the market for a SSS guitar but I want something with a more modern playing feel and slimmer neck without being totally flat like an Ibanez

Lincoln Smith
Lincoln Smith

MIM Strats have better necks, G&L's better pups. It's a tossup, I'd go MIM and redo the electrics at a later date. It'll be better in the long run.
