*mindless groveling* Woah is me great and mighty UG Gods, the newb has a question.

Is there any way to play Can't You Hear Me Knocking by the Rolling Stones without buying a $700 telecaster custom?

I've looked everywhere for tabs, but alls I can find is the one that says it's played on a telecaster. I tuned my guitar to open G and tried it anyways. Can't even get past the intro. Soon as i change to the G string, it sounds horrible and nowhere near where it should be. Help?

You're gonna get ridiculed...

...Anyway, you don't have to have that specific guitar, you can even play it on an acoustic if you want to, but it just said that in the recording it was played on a custom telecaster.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

Oh, the guitar you play on doesn't matter.
Your prolly tuning it wrong somewhere along the way.
Are you using a tuner to tune it?

Yeah, like everyone said, you can play it on any guitar. Don't worry about it though. If anyone flames you or ****, just know they probably mad a stupid mistake when they were beginning too. Anyway, welcome to UG

Yes I have a tuner, and I think may be tuning it wrong. Oh, BTW, I only signed up to ask this question. I may stick around if you guys don't prove yourselves to be 12 year olds with flaming e-penis'. I haven't been playing very long and it's all new to me, though I'm learning fast (so my friends tell me anyways).

This could be uber guitar speak for "You suck, but keep on keepin on"

Wow. Any guitar short of a complete ****stick should be able to tune to open G. Make sure you use a tuner and that you are tuning the strings to the right note.

Yes, there are some idiots on this site, but there are more experienced and friendly fellow guitar players here. Whenever the idiots post, people usually just ignore them and they slowly fade away

Try going somewhere other than the pit, and the moron count drops a lot.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?
