  1. "Learn & Master Guitar Setup & Maintenance" by Greg Voros has been mentioned here on the site a few times, but this DVD course is valuable enough it deserves its own topic. I highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to learn how to take care of your guitars. It covers electric and acoustic guitars. You can be your best guitar tech with a little knowledge and a few inexpensive tools. I learned most of my techniques from the course and I still reference it today. I take care of 4 different guitars with great results. I had a highly rated luthier in the area compliment me on how I maintained my two Taylor guitars. He told me "just keep doing what your doing". I hear the Gibson Les Paul is notorious for being out of tune. Huh? Mine comes out of the case tuned almost all the time. Maybe the G is a little off the day after I have a case of the bends. The same for my Taylor Nylon string which is always in tune after the strings are stretched properly. If you want to take good care of your guitars and really understand how they work then this course is for you. For the price of couple string changes you can stop depending on the local shop to work on your guitars.
  2. I updated my first take. Take 2 has less mistakes, and less finger noise.
  3. A Little Less Conversation "A Little More Action Please" - Elvis Presley Taylor NS24ce nylon string Fishman Loudbox Mini
  4. It is a good little lesson. I especially like the little "38 Special" style chord progression which is now in my bag of tricks.
  5. Rock on! The Music Theory of POWER CHORDS
  6. @Triple-o He is using the capo to show you the relationship between the pentatonic and the notes of chord form.
  7. @Six String Thanks for the tips. I am still trying to figure out how to get the sound I want. My Peavey Classic 30 also has a built in Drive and dirty channel. Things can get nasty in a hurry.
  8. I went to buy a Tube Screamer from my local music store, but they didn't have any in stock. The salesperson recommended the East River Drive pedal. I decided to go for it, and I am glad I did. Frankly, I am not that good using this type of effect yet so I was happy that it only cost $69 to purchase. I was also happy to find Premier Guitar gave it a strong review. Check out John Bohlinger as he puts the pedal through the test. If you are looking for an inexpensive overdrive pedal maybe the East River Drive is a good choice for you.

  9. THIS is how you learn the PENTATONICS A different practice method.
  10. @matonanjin You are welcome. The ES-335 is still high on my list of dream guitars.
  11. John Bohlinger and Greg Voros discuss these sweet guitars. Axes & Artifacts - Gibson ’58 & ’61 ES-335 & ’60 ES-330
  12. Playing In Every Mode with ONE Tiny Scale Shape Interesting...
