>>103361164what a stupid fucking trend, people that play with their guitars slung low in general annoy me
What was the name of that interactive site for examining guitar chords?
>>103361197The top cutout is meant for your tits not your balls
>>103361164I unironically miss when the skinny jeans+skinny deep v-neck was in fashion because I'm tall and skinny and look good dressed like that, but nobody would take me seriously because it's a weird look now and I'm 28
>>103361197It's a music video, it's not real playing
>>103361229No one gives a shit unless you're ugly. Sounds like you're ugly and can't pull it off anymore.
>>103361229My wife dresses me in pastel v-necks and tight (wouldn't consider skinny) dark wash jeans, but I'm built so anything tight looks good
I miss the late 2000s, bros
>>103361278>my wife dresses me simp
>>103361347This doesn't mean what you think it means
>>103361364alright, well your wife UNdresses me LMAO
Anyone knows anything about park amps ?Someone is selling a park gb50-15 in my town for less than 100€, wondering if I should grab it.
> be on acoustic guitar forum>"so yeah, I got sent this $3000 guitar and I didn't like the tone, so I sent it back. Then they sent me another $3000 guitar and I didn't like the tone of that either, so I sent it back too. Now they sent me a $5000 guitar and is ok, but the back is slightly too wide"Who keeps sending these mopes expensive guitars to fuck around with?How do I get them to send me guitars m
>>103361197You can thank jimmy page for popularizing the fuck out of that. I wish I could play with my guitar slung super low.
>>103361471probably richfag LARP, also any true connoisseur of acoustics knows buying online is a crapshootAcoustics really seriously need to be played before you buy, even the exact same model and configuration can have slightly different voices
>>103361278Hahahaha holy shit imagine being this pathetic
>>103361471>$3000 guitarthis is beyond retarded inless youre ridiculously wealthy and just collecting. a yamaha or a fender acoustic costs a few hundred bucks and sounds amazing, easy to play
Fuck, anyone know how to ship a guitar through reverb by UPS? I dont have a box and shipping label just shows upsp flat rate or custom
>>103361689You know fuckall about acoustics. Way to show off your peasant upbringing.
>>103361689why get a yamaha when you can get a no-name guitar from walmart?why get a guitar from walmart when you can play a shoebox with rubber bands stretched across it?why get a shoebox when there's free music software?why use music software if you can just sing?why sing if you can just imagine music?why imagine music when you could spend your time on literally anything else?why did I write this post?
>>103361786because a yamaha is legit good and the wal mart one is likely garbage. i dont know that for a fact but its orobably true
>>103361786>why did I write this post?autism
>>103361721youre going to need a box
>>103361820I know for a fact that all guitars are garbage and nobody should waste their time or money on them
>>103361689The issue isn't the fact that expensive acoustics exist. The issue is that many people on the acoustic guitar forum seem to get sent guitars to play with them send them back. Do they have to pinkie swear to buy one?I'd ask then myself but they seem to have range banned me.
>>103361721Cover it in duct tape and "fragile" stickers.
>>103361848There's a trial policy, as there should be. >>103361872Rickenbacker ships with it labeled "Glass". UPS seems to respect that for some reason.
>>103361689Did your mom give birth standing up?
>>103361900So, how does a trial policy work?
>>103361900Labelling it "glass" is a good idea
Could someone tell me what effect is used on this song (and also throughout most of the record)? Is it just a ton of reverb? I'm clearly a guitar newbie.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7kBsVqrdRA
>>103361944When you spend 3k+ from a specialty store, you get a week or more with it to see if you like it, or pay the restock and return shipping fee. It's not labeled as such but it's expected. You usually don't see it for electric boutiques though.
>>103362039I don't hear anything besides a shit ton of fuzz.
>>103362039Turn back before you get too deep. First you're asking "what effect are they using in the song", pretty soon you've been meme'd into selling your car for a broken fender and a faulty messa boogie with a shopping carts worth of "boutique" pedals.
>>103362039literally just fuzz and reverb with a humbuckee
>>103362039literally just fuzz
>>103362097>>103362236>>103362258thanks senpai. what's fuzz btw?>>103362102my question is only for listening purposes, i was filtered out of proper guitar playing with the g chord
NiggasIs there a 6-way pickup switch SG?
>>103362282look up Big Muff pedal
>>103362306how the fuck would that even work
Speaking of muffs, mine shipped today.
>>103362200Never again. Not until they widen the nut width.
bros how to stop consoooooming? i cant stop going to reverb sweetwater samash guitar center craigslist ebay you name it im looking for deals on amps pedals and shit. i have 9 guitars i dont know how many amps and a shit ton of pedals help me bros i camt even play guitar
>>103361245Plenty of crabcore bands played like that live. Maybe not to the extent of the gif but certainly in that general crab crouch position with the guitar slung low.
>>103362282>i was filtered out of proper guitar playing with the g chordthen a fuzz pedal is what you're looking for
>>103362421Post them with timestamp or fuck off.
>>103362306>>103362352Meant 5-way pickup switch, typo
>>103361164Got a Meris Enzo. I have no idea what kind of wacky shit i was smoking thinking the Enzo was somehow an analog pedal. I think because pedal mfg’s are still still using analog connections between pedals, I assume they're analog. I guess I didnt count on the retardation of people, which i should have since geetars are still mono even though they have 3 fucking pickups, because in my mind, the fucking 90s we already had fiber optics connecting shit, so you only convert your signal to digital once, not, like in these enlightened times where we use a thousand pedals and be sure to run our tortured signal through AD-DA conversions for each fuckin unit. Wtf people get it together. A high quality set of converters ought to be on every pickup, then the signal only either gets converted back to analog on its way from your amp to tye speaker, or not at all if recording direct. How hard is that to figure out? Jfc
>>103362442Finally some sense
>>103362336Fuck Behringer directly in the face. Who needs China stealing all ur ip when you’ve got those cunts doing it right in your own backyard...
>>103361164Does anyone have reccomendations for heavy metals scales or know a good way to emmorize scales for improv solos on chord progressions?
>>103362697because it costs $24. let me know when jhs, who does the exact same thing totally shamelessly, starts pricing his shit competitively. then ill start buying from him.
Here are my guitars
>>103362814cute strap :3
>>103362814I literally just bought this Jackson in the same color, I fucking love it.
>>103362899Its my first "proper" electric guitar and I love playing it! I had 60 gauge strings on it at one point and it nearly pulled the bridge out. Back to medium gauge for me!
>>103362779>implying thievery is ok bc someone else is also a thief. Fuck JHS too, as if that needed stating. But hey i’m glad you made off getting something for nothing, because that’s whats really important here. Trashy.
>>103363004thats capitalism babyy
>>103363004ok, which ripoff of the original tone bender do you want me to buy?
I have never had more fun playing guitar than when I finally tuned down to C
>>103363043Same. Then I went 5ths because it's a bass and lost nothing.
How to get this tone?

How much better do the Fender custom shops sound compared to the regular US models?
>>103365620not at all
>>103361197It looks based to me, what's the issue?
>>103362421What sounds are you looking for?
>>103362697>He's mad that poorfags can get the same time for a quarter of the price
>>103363004>I don’t know what “public domain” meansOk retard, prepare to get educated. The Behringer Super Fuzz is a clone of the Univox Super Fuzz, a circuit from the late 1960s. If it was patented when it was originally released, the term would have been for 2 years, so by the 1990s it would be released into the public domain. When something is “public domain”, anybody can copy it all they want without restriction or penalty, including you if you want to. Which is how the DIY pedal and amp cloners can do what they want. It’s not thievery because everybody is playing by the rules of the game. Besides, electronic circuits cannot be patented. They’re just arrangements of components. The circuit board designs and layouts can be, as can schematic drawings (as considered works or art), but design your own board layouts and draw your own schematics and you're in the clear. This is all very well-trod legal ground, and the Chinese know it just as well as everybody else. They’re playing by the rules too. That’s how everybody and their brother can make their own Tube Screamers and Fuzz Faces without running afoul of Ibanez or Jim Dunlop, who own the official names of the pedals. As long as they don’t use the trademarked names, use their own circuit boards and schematic drawings, the originators can’t do a thing, legally.
>>103362833Let's see that fucking banjo
what is the purpose of active pickups aside from making your sound muddy and flabby?
>>103366402Overpaying and being able to brag about it on guitar forums
>>103366434oh, so like a Gibson then
>>103366490Yeah, you've got the idea
Good gawdThere's two of them
>>103366362Keep them coming, I only follow women
>>103361278>My wife dresses meDoes she comb your ass hair for you also?
>>103361721Also make sure you tighten the strings up a step and a half so that the neck doesnt warp on the way.
>>103365855Lmao. What the fuck kind of Mickey Mouse setup is this?? Do yourself a favor, quit playing guitar. Get yourself a kazoo. You might get enough if you trade your awesome amp and pedals.
>>103366362Imagine preferring this washmaid over the Jazzmaster Poojita, Queen of /gg/.
I'm trying to play songs by ear but am having trouble with those riffs that use single notes across multiple strings, like the intro to Mr. Brightside for example. Is there some simple way to know the notes without looking them up, or does that just come with ear training?
>>103366490>>103366512You can always tell who the people who cant afford a Gibson are. They are the fags always bitching about Gibson.
One day boys, one day.

HEY SAMNot a troll post, I don't come here often anymore so I'm not really part of this whole...scene...you guys have going on here.But with S. America -- especially Brazil -- being just assrammed by this virus, I wanted to check in on your and see if you were ok.Thoughts and prayers, for what it's worth. Not even being ironic. This shit is borderless. Hope all of our Indian and South American brothers are surviving.
Tried putting in new pickups myself like a retard and pretty sure I fucked the wires from the pickups up. What the hell do I do? I thought I was supposed to solder the metal mesh to the pot and then put the wire through the left lug but it's so fucking tiny and tight in there I can't see shit.
>>103367459did you just try to solder a random part of the mesh to the pot without tinning it first?
>>103367249What are they like to play?
>>103367595gay as hell
>>103366267It's just a Harley Benton entry level I got out of curiosity. Very fun to play, all I can play is cripple creek by Earl Scruggs though
>>103367459>he didnt remove the components and transfer them to a cardboard template for assemblyNgmi
>>103367728I don't trust myself enough to take everything out and not fuck it up >>103367556Yes
>>103361216maybe inside https://pastebin.com/8h6zfKMD
>>103364488You don't need the tool, it's a bit more effort to intonate a floyd but the tool just makes it less annoying. It'll still be annoying.DO NOT EVER REMOVE THE SADDLES TO CLEAN UNLEE YOU USE TAPE TO MARK THEM
>>103362452none if stock have to mod yourself
What's the biggest meme feature in the guitar world?
>>1033679573-saddle Tele bridge.
>>103367748fucking retard. ill never understand why people accept doing a shitty job at things. you know you can just google things right?What you should have done is rolled up the mesh on the end of the wire like pic related. Then you tin it, meaning heat up the mesh and melt solder into it without soldering it to the pot yet. Next straighten out your signal wire and tin it, just a little bit on the tip. Put the tinned wire through the lug, use a pair of needle nose pliers to put a hook on the end so it'll stay put while you solder it, then solder it to the lug with a tiny amount of solder. You just need enough to fill the lug hole up and secure the wire. Then solder your ground to the back of the pot. If you can't see, use a light and a magnifying glass. I can't tell how badly you fucked up the mesh where you tried to solder it, or if you burnt through the cloth insulation, but worst case scenario you cut the wire at the fucked up spot and start fresh, just with short little baby leads now. You can always solder jumper wires onto the lead if you need to.

How’re my Elektron chads doing tonight?
>>103367595Like a 25.5" Les Paul with better sustain and a nice tight bright sound instead of muddy and "warm". The only one I've played had a pretty medium neck, but there are some out there with big chunky necks and some with slim necks. If I bought one, I'd commission a new one from the guys at EGC, vintage prices are fucking stupid. The one in the pic I posted is on reverb for like $7000, and EGC will build you a new one for around $5K. https://youtu.be/FOSz9BWy87E
>>103366402Active pickups are very low noise and output a low impedance signal. As a result the tone produced by the pickups is very clear and stable, even over very long cable runs (such as through a massive all-true-bypass pedalboard).>Muddy and flabbyThere are many models of active pickups and they're EQ'd differently.
>>103368100Doing good man. How about you?
Been working on a concept for a custom pedalboard. Not really satisfied with anything I'm seeing out there.Overall size is 28x16". Each level has 5.5" of pedal space (the middle will overlap with the top by half an inch). The top level will hold eight Boss pedals, the middle and bottom will hold six (plus a full-sized Crybaby wah). The bottom is intended for a looper and will fit a Quartermaster 8.
>>103368671Cool shit. Wouldn't the higher pedals be harder to stomp on due to the height? Do post when you've made it.
>>103368045I just did exactly this and i'm still getting no sound out of the pickup
>>103368834You got a multimeter?
>>103368834Can you draw a ms paint diagram of your wiring? Too lazy to decipher your pic
Anyone heard of or played these before? For under $30 I’m genuinely curious about the sound
>>103367857lol too late, im already changing tunings though>>103367903>low profile
If I take my guitar in for pickup/electronic work, do they usually have pots and shit on hand or do I need to order a set of my own first?
>>103368716>Wouldn't the higher pedals be harder to stomp on due to the height?Should be the opposite, is my thinking. Instead of having to step over a row of pedals they're boosted for easier accessibility.
>>103369365You need to bring your own. Professionals who fix guitars definitely don't keep spares of common parts on hand.
What genre of music should I learn? Bluegrass, blues, country. All 3 are dominant fingerpicking, note that I don't know how to fingerpick or play guitar at that matter. I know chords though
>>103368677Fuck that. It's like you want to go out of tune.
>>103369629I think he means he doesn't like the massive doodads sticking out of the bridge
>>103369468I hope you don’t think any of those genres are actually easy. Bluegrass and country are very similar in style, blues is totally different
I just bought one of these for €29... new. Must have been a typo by an overworked employee because that's more than 80% off just because there's a dent in the packaging (probably was supposed to be €129). I don't even need this thing but at this price I'd be an idiot not to buy it.
>>103369688>Bluegrass and country are very similar in style
>>103369688Bluegrass is lonesome sound, on its own. country is more akin to rock/blues
>>103369723Actual country and bluegrass are very much entwined. If you’re talking about pop country then no
>>103366402Originally, active pickups were designed to get around the conundrum of having a clearer and more precise sound (a hallmark of underwound pickups) without the weak volume output of those pickups.Then metalheads discovered they could use the active preamps to blow out the output and get BRÖOTÜL TØANZ, and the rest is history. You can still get jazz-oriented active pickups that are not intended to distort, but they are a special-order only proposition. Metal has completely taken over the active pickup market now.
>>103369906Didn't EMG invent the active pickup specifically to take distortion cleanly though?
>>103369629hollow points don't fit in a low profile double locking trem, the screws that hold the string clamps down don't go under the fine tuners
>>103370006They're on mine just fine
>>103367595Think of a heavier SG with more neck dive. Now make that neck suck all of the heat out of your hand and change tuning with every change in temperature. Now make it ludicrously expensive.
>>103370216Shhhhhhh... it's funnier to let the so(y)s display their mindless consoomerism when they'll never have enough money in their entire miserable lives to find out the truth
Got a new P-bass. First Fender though. I should really clean my floors before I take pictures.
>>103363093Fuzz + Clean amp + Reverb (enough for ambience). I reccomend single coil pickups but its whatever.
>>103369956No, that came later. Early-era EMGs weren’t particularly tuned to distortion.
have you taken the dumble pill yet, anon?
>>103370632wow. a p bass. amazing. hooray.
>>103370874I love it when redditors find out about guitar memes after everyone else has long since stopped laughing.
Is playin blues kinda like playin some blues rock? Yall I'm snacking on sum biscuits just waitin to hear back.
>>103370120it's not just recessed it's a different mechanism altogether. sorry for sideways image im not gonna rotate it
>>103371325Oh, one of those. Gotcha
>>103369138For the price that's just gonna be the basic chinkshit compressor with Amazon branding. Behringer, Joyo, now Amazon. Same old, same old.
>>103367459>guitar electronics is tinywhat year is it?
>>103361197because you can't do it
not my problem
so when you block a strat trem do you just stick a block back there and can easily switch it back to floating or do you have to essentially convert from floating to flush hardtail?
>>103371951It's called fret sprout. It happens as the wood dries out due to being in a drier climate.
>>103370632Get some Optimas on that thing.
>>103361689>Oh no, $3000! What a WASTE OF MONEY!I imagine you would feel that way, if you had to sell your finite mortal life and wage away all day for a few shekels. Not all of us are wagies, and yet still you ragie. Why?
>>103372465wagies ragie, it's the way of the world
>>103372465>buy $3000 guitar>sounds the same as $300 guitarwasting money is not a badge of honor
the hell's crab core? sounds like a bad porno
>>103370517>1200$ >unobtainable Either retarded or a child
>>103372484What's wrong with "wasting money" if you have over 900k worth of chainlink, exactly? It's not like I was going to spend it on you.
>>103372516because anon, wagies ragie. they can't understand that not everybody is a poorly paid pet store clerk so they have an animalistic reaction to sums that are trivial to most successful people.
Jackson JS series any good if I replace the pickups and tuners?
>T-they don't get it>$3000 is a lot of money>I could pay rent for six months with that ;_;
why do you always try to force a new currencyits a tell
>>103372577Roman has always been a chainlink millionaire, anon.
Wagie wagie, comes home from his cagie.Pretends to be van halen on the world stagie.Never gigs, never records, half asses a cover and fails at riffs til he's bored.My tone's the problem, the wagie thinks.I'd sound like jimmy hatfield if my amp didn't stink.
>>103372562Go ahead and swap the bridge and yes it is, they're rock solid guitars for the price + upgrades Although, you could go up a pricepoint and get a soloist which is essentially the same price as fully kitting out a js
He orders a mesa, an orange, a marshall, a fender.He even buys a Gibson on his months long gear bender.A pile of pedals, shoegaze for daysWon't someone stop his consumerist craze?A scarlett, two mics, a loadbox too!Everything matches his fake gucci shoesIt all comes in the mail and he takes a cool pictureAnd comes to /gg/ to be told he's lacking a future
>>103372587Fair But theres been spamming of other currencies too if memory serves
His jaw drops at the trolls, he hates to see it"You're all jealous and poor, and probably from reddit"He lies to himself, believes skill comes from trinketsThen he lays down and cries into his wolf blankets
true wagies can never actually own alot of gear, its a logical impossibility due to circumstance
>>103372179The former. The latter is a different thing that makes the vibrato bridge dive only.
>>103372695wagies can own a lot of gear at the cost of things like nice homes and free time (spent at work instead) which is why every photo in /gg/ depicts an absolute dump or a barren basic bitch apartment. some boomer here was unironically bragging about working 60 hour weeks to fund his MIA fender habit. fucking lmao.
>>103361197seething over nothing lol pathetic
I need money but there's no one willing to pay me to suck their cocks
>>103372997downloaded grindr and got offered money to let someone suck my dick
>>103372905what did he mean by this?
>>103372970i bet you look real cool squatting like an idiot
>>103373131that he's a faggot
>>103372451Gold strings to go with a gold P-Bass? Why not. The price is a bit scary though.

>>103373232u so mad lmao seething to the max
I’m 25 and picking up the guitar for the first time. I got this MIM Stratocaster in the mail on Friday and I’ve been practicing chords for an hour every day. I can’t wait until I get good enough to play a song, but I’m really struggling right now. I can’t get used to moving my hand up and down the neck for the life of me.
>>103373801But yeah, anyone pick up the guitar at 25 or later? How was your experience? Am I ngmi?
I want to adjust my action's arch with just a ruler. Considering I'm a math midget, how do I know what is the curve of the arch of my guitar and where do I find measurements to adjust it?
>>103373856Nah man, just learn the c major scale, and the minor pentatonic scale all the way up the neck.Once you do that alot of things open up. Once you know where all the whole notes are, everything else is just small adjustments.Learn barre chords, and learn the root notes of the bar chords. This will allow you to travel anywhere.And dont think about ngmi, just think about your realistic goals.
>>103373856I started at 31 and have below average hand size, and “substantial hearing loss” in mid range frequencies. Been playing about 7 months, can play standing up, do all the 1234 variations at 210 bpm, can do multi bar strumming patterns and chord changes for playing gospel and blues with my family, barre chords, know all the notes on fretboard, and can hear the key of most songs and key changes. About to start learning different scale modes and work on fingerpicking. I have to work a lot harder than the other people in my program but I’ve passed every week; I practice in about 45 minute sittings 3-5 times a day every day, and it’s 95% structured practice. I’ll work on learning something I want to play if I need a mental break. It’s not too late to start if you’re willing to put in the work and have a clear outline of how to get there
>>103373902Look up your guitar on the internet, radius must be listed there. Doesn't really matter much for most guitars. Unless yours is 7 or 9 inch radius.
>>103361164For me, it's Atreides.
Should I be worried about fret wear 6 months after buying a new guitar?All frets from 7 to 15 are already flat on top and show some rough edges compared to the higher register.I can't be needing a refret after 6 month, right?
>>103375161Really? post pics
>>103375324I tried to but can't seem to focus on the frets, the "shine" is blurry. The dead giveaway is when rubbing the tip of my index finger over it, you can feel some kind of sharp edge. And they're visibly flat on the top.It's a $1500 guitar and the unused frets (low E higher register) are impeccable.
>>103375360Don't play with a death gripRefret to stainless steelDon't use marketing metal strings - cobalt, titanium etc. They will wear on the frets faster - even if SS
>>103375390I'll have them polished first, but for sure next year I'll need SS frets. I'm using regular DAddarios Nickel wound, nothing fancy.
>>103367957tuners just get it right the first time and nail them down
>>103367957Intonated fretsbut that doesn't mean I don't want them
>>103372465Based Stinkie Linkie.
>>103373856started at 26, I should preface I have no intention of making it, what helped me the most is I set a rule for myself that I would pick up the guitar and strum atleast once every single day without exception. It almost always turned into hours of practice but it was ok if I had to do something else and it never felt like a chore. Your biggest enemy is ego and expectation just adds fuel to the fire, the reality is you will have some days where you think you suck and some days where you feel like you're really getting better and it's largely out of your control. The fact you're seeking validation on a forum is a big red flag to me that you're ngmi

>>103372484$3000 isnt shit for a hand built acoustic. Why dont you want to pay a skilled craftsman with a lifetime of experience to make a jem of a guitar, and instead exploit some non union chinese slave to make you a cardboard shitbox? Youre a disgusting peasant communist moron.
I'm looking for funk guitarists who play on baritones, any recs?
>>103373801>>103373856if you play every day you will make it, if you don't play every day the you never wanted it
>>103374811I'm still a math midget. I have to calculate what distance the action should be on each string.
>>103376026What about your dad?
>>103372608>Swap the bridgeOh yeah I forgot about that, wasn't going to get any of the floyd ones anyway>Same price as kitting out a jsI already have the pickups and pots, same goes for tuners although I may get new ones as these don't feel smooth
Anyone here play mostly fingerstyle? I just recently picked up the guitar again and having loads of fun. Need to build up my finger callouses though

>>103375146cool, sounds a bit like the Bit Commander... maybe a bit more flexible with the tweakable enveloppes and phasing.
>>103373801Learning to play the guitar can be tough, especially in the first few months. It hurts and nothing goes as intended. Hang in there, it gets much easier. You're never too old to get at least good enough to play music you love. Yeah maybe you'll never be an amazing virtuoso but even that isn't impossible with a lot of practice. An old collegue of mine started at 35 and became a very decent jazz and classical player just by playing 1+ hour every day for a couple of years.

>>103376769but what do you think of his tone?
>>103376192It's easy. 1.5 top of the fret to bottom of string starting from the last fret E to G1.55 D1.6 A1.7 EDepending on your setup, you could just make it 1.5 on all strings based on the last fret of the fret of the respective string.
what the hell's crabwhore it sounds like a gay porno
I realized it's more fun to learn songs than practicing scales
>>103361278Unbelievably based. Mommy wife.
played a grestch with a bigsby at the store. Fucking loved the bigsby, really wanna put one on my les paul style guitar considering I always find myself reaching for the non-existent trem, but fucking $200 for a relatively simple piece of metal seems kinda fucking dumb>>103361216oolimo
>>103361689basedautists here will complain but 99.9% of your audience won't be able to tell the difference. What matters more is how you record it.

All this cope. You suck. You have shit gear and worse attitude. Quit trying to one up anonymous fags on 4channel. It’s anonymous it’s not about ego. And you keep forgetting you’ll never draw a dime. You’re too ugly and too shit a player and you don’t have the gear or talent to play a gig anyway. You think a 15 watt AB combo is going to be heard with a drummer? Or that anyone wants to watch a greasy unshowered asshole play outdated music poorly, let alone pay for it? You are delusional and a total prick. Get the fuck off this website. Not one person likes your shit
>>103372484Being poor is not a badge of honor
https://youtu.be/KbVw7pUJqfg[Open]Please everyone, let’s post reviews of this dudes playing since he’s always posting ‘post playing’ and shitting on others.Like let’s take an HONEST look at this example. This is his finest Playing. So much so he is using it to advertise his playing in hopes of getting a session guitarist gig.The presentation is sad. The room is filthy, he’s ungroomed. The guitar looks tired and worn down despite being relatively new. The walls are filthy, like he’s rubbing dirt on them. The bed is unmaid, and clutter is everywhere.The tone? What amp is it? Horrid. Spikey treble break up. Very poorly mated to his playing style as well. His pick technique leaves no room for articulation or dynamics. Every stroke is hard, too hard in fact. It leaves a spike of treble for the poor listener. No bass whatsoever. All you hear really is the snap of plastic plectrum on string. Louder than the guitar itself. Horrid horrid sound.Next the rhythm. What’s to say? It’s not even competent. There is no tempo it all. It’s just cabaret on the guitar. Each phrase comes with a new tempo, extra beats are added in 4/4, 5/4, 6/8? Constantly changing. Hard to really even say it’s any of those. This playing isn’t even close to something that could work with other players.Tonality? Well it is in key, some what. The bends are not. They are horrid and distracting. The player isn’t capable of playing this piece either so perhaps that’s why there is no sense of rhythm at all. Too much thinking over notes. Very bad. And repeating the same runs too much. I just can’t see what any artist would want to hire this player for. Should have bought a metronome and lessons instead of 4 guitars and mods for all of them, what was he thinking?
>buys 300 shit plank that he saved up for 4 years>hates it>spends a total of his yearly salary(not much lol) on mods>makes it worse>proceeds to seethe whenever someone talks about having decent gear>mental illness>sam
>>103372484If you seriously mean that I doubt you’ve ever played a 3000 guitar. I agree it’s too expensive but the difference between a <1000 dollar guitar and a 1000+ guitar is night and fucking day.
I’ll say it again. Look at this honestly. And assess it fairly.Mix is terrible and the production is worse. I think there might be a fungus growing on the wall. Visually unsettling and an eye sore. Makes one question why post video at all.The composition ? Well dirivative and old fashioned at best, but amateur at worst. At no point during this ‘soulful jam’ is anything melodic considered. The ‘artist’ descends through the F scale and presumes we the audience will be in awe. Really the sound of plectrum hitting a string is the loudest most audible piece of this track. Made worse by a plywood acoustic guitar that can only amplify bass tone. THUCK THUCK THUCK. If the player is committed to this instrument he should consider reassessing his technique so as not to muffle his own music with hideous perusssice sounds. Hard to imagine these are intended when they fall out of time a few bars into the jam.The bass playing is entry level and inaudible. Desperately attempting to rein the guitars to the groove.The electric guitar. What’s to say? At no point does the playing actually sync up with the other two instruments. Which is hard too so when they already miss the groove themselves. Mindless noodling yet obviously the player struggled to author this lead portion. The struggle is his inability to play the instrument comfortably. It sounds like a struggle. Harsh technique sends spikes to the ears. While the author reminds his viewers he has chosen the key of F, he clearly forgot to inform the lead guitar who has entered his own world where pitch is academic based on numbers on a fretboard and not an audible frequency. Typically one would recommend a professional grade instrument fkr serous recording artists. One with PLEK’d frets and quality materials. This one can’t stay in tune as the player moves about the Biarritz, professionals will over come this tuning the guitar for the key they are in. This is amateur. 2/10
>>103377585Looks like a locking tuner from the thumb grip groove. That's not how you use them anon, pull the string straight and taut through the hole then tighten with the locking mechanism.
What’s more, if anyone actually posds playing who is the first to respond? The Brazilian worm. He rages and seethes at other ‘competition’. His lot in life is low and the guitar is his realm and any who date challenge him must be attacked. This is his mindset. Gibson? ‘Well you’re too rich to be good at guitar!’ If you were smart like me you’d have just spent your income modding a Chinese particle board single cut!’Mesa Boogie? ‘Wow so compressed and 1985 I have a class A Alien combo amplifier and it’s better so nice try, should have learned scales like me, did I mention the word Lydian and modes? I know those ’.With this context 1/2 posts on /gg/ starts to make sense. Insults come only from one man. A seething poor worm bodied asshole jealous of talent and gear. He’s been banned repeatedly, but is so pathetic he comes again and again driving away actual community members.Years of this yet only 17 dislikes on his YouTube and a few views. When will his lucky break come? When will he be recognized by the world for his talents?Contrast his playing to blooz lawyer. BL plays for fun. He doesn’t want views to fame. His amp is dialed in to Match his guitar. The intonation is perfect. When he plays soft it’s clean and smooth. When he bends it adds vocal clarity and always finds the correct pitch. His pick attack increases and overdrives the amplifier adding articulation and expression to the playing that Sam’s amateur mind hasn’t yet to even consider. Sam knows ba scale or two. But he sucks. He can play notes but he can’t play them in a pleasing way and it’s a fundamental technique problem. Some old faggot hobbyist posts 29 seconds and just utterly pulls his whole foundation from beneath him.If Sam spent less time gear fagging and defending condors and modding shit and obsessing with money and making it he might have discovered nuance.I’d recommend selling his shit and getting a real job before he’s too old.
Your mother loves your based holy brother that turns bikes into rocks more than you. That's why she enables your based holy brother. If both of you got in prison, she'd sell the contents of your room just to bail him out but not you.
>>103377824He's been like that on this same general for 5+ years now. Don't mind him, it's his coping mechanism for being a poorfag.
>>103377824It's just the resident retard. Just one of it's baits that's getting quite old and tired really. No need to show him otherwise, it's just attentionfagging. Cause his dad is dead, his brother mogs him, and his mother hates him specially after fucking the family pet. Void of external social contact and dejected by his family, this is all he's got.
>>103377824IME the point of diminishing returns is fairly low. The difference between a cheap piece of junk and a quality instrument certainly is night and day, but guitars begin to get good way below a grand nowadays. You can get an excellent guitar for around 600 - 800.

>>103370911P Bass is like sex in the missionary position for exclusive purpose of procreation. Maybe not exciting, but it has a hell of a track record
>>103371281Kind of, but real blues is more rhythm and meter-focused. You gotta be able to dance to it, otherwise there is no point.
