  1. As Henk and Diane said once you cross the $1,000 range of instruments the return becomes less and less . like a car that didn't cost much can go from 0-60 in 5.5sec and costs a lot to get it to 5.0 seconds. Granted there are many fine examples well below $1,000 as well. Just remember, nicks, scratches, and dings happen and are all part of a guitar knowing it's loved. [edit: owning a $2,000+ guitar is amazing.. play it , play it again]
  2. Recording or looping myself just proves how far off reality is and what my brain hears 😪
  3. And covid has had the opposite on my free time, Very well done on completing so many courses
  4. @RockVox he's barring the 10th fret with his first finger and since all the notes are played all at once.. you pluck the first three strings at once with your index, middle and ring fingers
  5. If you're on High E or B you have to bend up or you come off the fretboard If you're on A or Low E you have to bend down or come off the fretboard G and D can be bent either way, but it's easier to push up then it is to pull down Your hand is also freer to vibrate/vibrato when pushing up
  6. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cliffs_of_Dover_(composition) While he did indeed compose "Cliffs of Dover", Johnson does not take full credit, saying "I don't even know if I can take credit for writing 'Cliffs of Dover' ... it was just there for me one day ... literally wrote in five minutes ... kind of a gift from a higher place that all of us are eligible for. We just have to listen for it and be available to receive it Ah Via Musicom catapulted Johnson to guitar-hero stardom, achieving certified Gold and Platinum sales. A crucial element of the album’s success was the inst
  7. $77 is pretty darn cheap Lucky it wasn't more
  8. I don't know enough about EMG pickups or their quick connect system. I'm also not certain if there any passive EMG pickups, thought they all needed a 9v battery to run. Maybe replace with a new battery One option for trouble shooting is put back the original pickups. Sometimes you have to go backwards to go forward. If you had soldered the connection on the pot, I would have you probably over heated the pot , but since this is a quick connect system that shouldn't apply Watch out when you disconnecting the pickup you didn't in fact pull the wire off the quic
  9. @marshall not all rests need to be muted, not played is as good as a rest
  10. So how do they compare sound wise
  11. True test of good hearing aid programming is they don't make all sorts of wierd noises when you use a wha pedal
  12. so I ended up doing a "Google" on Rif vs Lick here's it's answer: The Difference Between a Riff and a Lick: Riff: A riff is thematic (a what??). It serves as the main section for a song. Think of Satisfaction for example or Smoke On The Water. A riff is often repeated and developed, sometimes with variations, sometimes in different keys, but a riff is always recognisable as the main idea or main part of the song.
