  • @Dave said: re: tuning heads -- avoid hipshot. they're cool but you're not there yet. Dang it. Of course, I've already installed Hipshot staggered locking tuners on the thing. By shopping around I did manage to find a set for $55, which i…

  • The order I preferred them was B > C > A. In which order do you prefer them? Come up with your choice before you watch the reveal video.

  • Assuming you're not pulling my leg: "Tuning machines," in my totally non-expert opinion, appears to be the now-preferred term for tuning pegs on guitars other than classical guitars. It appears -- and I'm just speculating here -- that they say "tuni…
  • So, does anyone have any recommendations for tuning machines, or more importantly, bad tuning machines that I should avoid?
  • Well, I was trying to intonate the new guitar when the tuning machine for the low E string gave up the ghost. They really are total crap.
  • A few more observations: I've now lowered the action on the new guitar. So far, there has been no fret buzz. I think it can go a little lower. It appears that the job the manufacturer did on the frets actually is pretty good. The width on the …

  • Well, my less-than-$60-postpaid guitar has arrived. First impressions: The finish is pretty good, There are a few scratches in the pick guard. You can see some scuff marks in the sanding. Overall, it looks good. For sixty bucks, I was prepared to…

  • I'm still enjoying trying to learn the thing. I still can't switch chords fast enough to play anything correctly, but I'm still improving slowly. If you give it a shot, the first couple weeks are the worst as your finger tips toughen up. They kee…
  • I've been kinda wanting a guitar that I could feel free to tear apart. My guitar is too nice to subject to my rank beginner luthiery. (It's a Michael Kelly Hourglass that I've had for quite a few years now, since my last spasm of wanting to learn th…

  • I listen to Joe Rogan once in a while, if you consider what he does a podcast. I like the Stooges. Fun House is my favorite of their albums, but I like all three of their original studio albums. I like a lot of Iggy Pop's stuff, too. I looked …

  • Other than on Rocksmith, I haven't been doing much with actual songs, yet. I've been working on chords and finger independence. Do you think I should look up some tab and give it a go? Would that be a better use of my time?
  • I'm still making obvious but slow progress. I don't intend to give up yet, only if it becomes clear I'm wasting my time. Every day I go from A major to Am, A to C, A to D, A to Dm, ... , A to F, A to G. Then I go from Am to A, Am to C, and so on …

  • I wish I had taken it up when I was a dumb kid, but that is a story that digs up bad -- possibly inaccurate -- memories filled with anger, rationalization, and plenty of self-loathing. Hindsight is twenty-twenty. Anyway, it's not like I have anyt…

  • @Dave said: look into learning some Velvet Underground, Reed was famously cynical (although almost certainly he was just being witty) about songs with lots of chord changes. ("...three chords and you're into jazz" etc). Sweet Jane is 4 or 5 c…
  • I suspect I'm one of Rocksmith's "special" students: "Let's try that again." "Let's slow it down a bit, and try that again." "Let's try that again." By this time, the song sounds like it is being amplified by a tank of molasses. Ah, well, I'm …
