  1. Nicely done Maria. I hope you will get rehired soon. Stay healthy!
  2. @matonanjin You are welcome. I never liked Ultimate Guitar in the past. Like Desi says there is a lot of wrong information on most tab sites so I rarely visit them anymore. I didn't realize the Ultimate Guitar Pro account had such good tools for a really good price. I might have to join myself.
  3. The Fishman peel is its main weakness. It would be sweet with hardwood sides. Has anyone complained about this? I assumed I was the only one.
  4. I like my Fishman Loudbox Mini, and it definitely peels.
  5. Why not? It's your style. If it feels comfortable then why not? Can you strum easily in that position? People have played that way for a long time. Have you ever tried one of those foot rests, or the stand for your leg? I say go for it if it works for you. It would be interesting to see what Steve Krenz thinks.
  6. Small turns only, tune, and recheck. Looking down the neck it should look straight with just a slight inward curve. You can also use the strings as a straight edge by pressing down on fret 1 and 14.
  7. @NeilES335 I have The Beatles Anthology and 'Til There Was You is one of my favorites.
  8. I spent some time this weekend with the Orange Crush Mini connected to the Boss GT-1. The little amp worked well with the multi-effects pedal.
  9. Loosen your truss rod 1/4 turn. You need more bow in the neck.
  10. @matonanjin Here is a review video which shows a lot of the tone.
  11. @Bro. Turtel Welcome Turtel! Yeah those are some expensive strings. My most expensive are Elixirs on my acoustic, and NYXL on my Gibson Les Paul. You definitely seem to have a thing for Jazz so flatwound makes good sense. If you like working on guitars then you might want to check out Greg Voros Setup & Maintenance DVD.
  12. @ScottH Steve will teach you everything you need to be a guitar player. Practice often, and play songs too. Good luck in your guitar journey.
  13. @Las Vegas Steve I already have 3 other amps, and all of them are much more expensive than the Orange Crush Mini. The Mini has great features for a small practice amp, and its sound is different from my other amps.
