In my opinion, it's always a good time to start a band, no matter what your skill level is. Being in a band will subconsciously make you a better player, especially with rhythm. You'll learn a lot.

I feel like playing on crappy equipments helps my techique at times (hear me out)

I have a really really crappy acoustic guitar. The neck is warped, the tone is awful, and the action is so high, it's nearly impossible to play, unless you're playing slide guitar. However, I find...

Recommend me some beginner finger picking songs.

I just bought my friend's classical guitar for a discounted price. I've been playing for about 6 years, but I haven't really done much with finger picking, other than Stairway to Heaven and a little...

Hmm, well I'm trying not to spend more than $2000. I am definitely going used for the head. I found a used roadster on E-Bay for $1500 with no shipping cost, and a used Mark VI for $1350 (after...

Looking to get a half stack below $1800, any recommendations?

I'm currently playing on the embarrassing, cheap, solid state Crate FTX120. Me and my band (I'm lead guitar) just got serious, and when I try to crank my amp, it ends up sounding like a pile of dog...

Does your amp have a standby option? If it does, I'd say leave it on stand by for about an hour or two, and see if you notice a difference in the tone after that.

Dude, you can do whatever you want. There are no rules. Music theory just explains what you are doing, and makes it easier to communicate those ideas to other musicians.

Recommend me some good chord progressions to play the mixolydian mode over.

I understand that Dom 7th's work good over the mixolydian mode, so I've just been looping an A7 chord on my loop pedal, and playing the mixolydian mode over that. It sounds pretty good, but it gets...

I do the thing where you bend the string, then un-bend it, then pull off to two frets above so it sounds like 3 notes a lot. I bend too much, I need to chill with that, lol.

Yes, it is faded. I'm not sure about the neck binding, but I know it's one of the lower end SGs. I still like it a lot, though. The action is pretty much perfect, and the sound isn't bad at all,...

Should I trade my Fender Deville for my friend's Gibson SG and some cash?

Yes, I am quite aware that the Fender Deville is an outstanding amp, but I just don't find it versatile enough for my style. I play pretty much every genre that you can play on guitar (rock, metal,...
