I believe it's the marriage between the player and his equipment.

If you have a great guitarist with gear (whatever that is) that allows him to express himself the way he wants to, that's where it...

Yeah, I don't think they make a tremendous difference, that's true. They do feel and sound different though, but it's not a "wow" moment.

So, I've been using D'Addario XL120s (9-42) for a long time, and was pretty happy with them. I heard about the "balanced tension" sets, so I thought I'd give them a try. This is a little chart I made...

Then maybe it's a consistency thing. If it sounds good slower (everything's clean and even), try a metronome (or a drum loop, which is my preference). Then you can really see where it's not working....

A lot of it is memorization! And you'l have to go by the relationship of the notes to the key/root (regardless of which note you start on).

For example in an A pentatonic the note C is a minor...

So, if you wanted to find the this for "quarter tones", it would be the 24th root of 2 or 2^(1/24) which is about 1.029, instead of 2^(1/12), which is about 1.059?

So for 1/2 steps 440/1.059 is...

As was previously stated Eb and D# are the same pitch (what you call it depends on the key).

Why not try a Jet City - a 2 channel combo, for example. That will give you your clean "twang" tones, and your high-gain tones.

They are not too expensive, and don't have any of that stuff you...

Yeah - you need the right type of bridge.

Could be certain Fenders - but a vintage style bridge won't work. It also doesn't need to be locking.
