Hi
yeah so umm when i try to do a pinchy, i can only do it on the 2nd and 3rd string.
And even when i do the pinchy on those strings they dont sound that good.
I mean i think i mastered it. Becuase i did like a tonne load of pinches in a row and they sounded decent.
So does anyone know y i cant do a pinchy on the 1st,4th,5th and 6th string.
And also is the reason my pinches might sound rubbish is the tone on my cruddy mg30dfx?
Oh yeah can anyone suggest some easy sweep pickin techniques i could learn?

Sorry if this isnt in the right thread

How long did you have those strings ?

Maybe theyre startting to lose tone ?
That COULD be the problem.

Or indeed just practice.

Or use you're last pickup and set you're amp's high, Higher that usually works for me.

Well the brand is not always the problem, It's the Size that matter <(lol)
I have 0.9 and then Bright also from d'addario and i can pinch alot of them with that.

It's not the best tough but i like them.

You're in the wrong forum, but your problem is you're trying to do to much - you're trying to get a killer vibrato'd squealie on the lower strings before you've even got the hang of any of the basic techniques required to do so, namely being able to play a pinch harmonic or being able to vibrato particularly well.

Concentrate on getting the hang of those things in isolation before trying to put them together. As far as pinch harmonics go it's all about practice, but it would also help to read up about harmonic nodes so you know where you should be picking. Learn to do them consistently on the thinner strings before tackling to the wound ones. You'll still never get the same kind of squeals you hear on recordings though, you simply don't have the equipment, however you should still be able to tell when you're performing the technique correctly.

And don't I love it! You wouldn't believe it, but I used to have to keep typing out page after page of text for people. Very often I'd hit the character limit or lose huge posts - and now all that's behind me. I can substitute 10000 characters of text and effort with approximately 50 pages worth of detailed, cohesive advice at the tap of "See my sig".
