Yes, I have been asking a few practise questions of late......

Anyways, do you ever practise a riff, solo or scale on a bad guitar, and then play or practise the same riff on a good guitar and find you can play it better than if you had jus started on your good guitar?


I was learning Master of Puppets on my squier strat, which ain't that bad a guitar, and then moved later in the day to playing it on my Epi Les Paul, and found it so much easier to play and I could also play it perfect.


Thanks and hope that makes sense!

Ummm....do you like practice every song on ur crap guitar and then later on do it on a good one? thats wasting ur time unless you really like playing the squier. Its pretty pointless IMO coz you can use that time to get 'intimate' with you good guitar's action, tone, neck, fret access and other sorts of things.

Well, in my case i moved on from having a crap strat, to an intermediate guitar, still not a very good guitar. I've never used much of the strat, never really liked the neck and im planning on modifying it again.

Each guitar is setup differently, be it in its tone, action, neck, fret access, playability, control. Unless its the same model with same factory settings. And its up to you which you prefer most. A new guitar definetely takes time to get used to, or like i would say better, to get to know it more. As time goes, you will be familiarize with it and almost start forgetting about ur squier. And yes, you will feel a slight change.

madpickin03, to answer your question, I usually play whatever guitar is to hand.
Was too lazy to go get my Epi, so learnt Master of Puppets on the squier, and then later in the day, got the Epi out and things so much easier than from starting on the Epi.

Confidence = better playing. If the guitar sounded better then you'd be playing with more confidence and find it easier to play.

Just one song? and its all preference. You do what you feel more comfortable. You've heard this thing a lot and you will hear it again. Every musician is separated by this. If you think that the action, neck and playability on ur squier will help you play better, then use it.

You're going to play better on the neck that you feel more comfortable on.
