if u have one, pull on the whammy before you pick the 21st fret and it will sound like a 22 fret pick

Or just bend the 21st fret up a semitone?
indeed my man, well said.

And if it's not on the high e you can just play it on another string.

Solving problems far more than they need to be solved is always the best choice. Here's some guitars to look at:

Just bend your 21st fret. Duh.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

Bah humbug.

Bought a pimped out MIM Telecaster from my friend last month, it only has 21 frets. I don't particularly know why this annoys me, as I rarely play past the 17th fret, but dammit it does

#12
if bending doesnt appeal to you, tune the string up a half step and re learn the fingering? most of your options are pretty obvious, no real secrets of how to get around it.

I bought a guitar with enough frets to play any note in a high register that a guitar should be able to play, within reason. Is this awesome? y/n.


Cheers to not having 21 frets!

or 22 for that matter...

pinch harmonic on the ten? but thats really really complicated compared to just bending the note. or just burn your guitar for warmth and get one with 22 frets.

i offer helpful advice

I have no opinion on this matter.

play it on a different string or bend it. or buy a new neck/guitar.

srsly.


If you are not willing to die for the perfect s'more, Then you don't deserve a s'more at all.

Why not just do what gilmour does live and either bend 3 semitones a the 21st fret or just improvise something different? Apart from which he played the studio version on a 24 fret guitar, and i can tell you from experience that makes it a hell of a lot easier than just having 22, because the heel isn't in the way as much.

The more frets you have on your guitar = The bigger your penis, everyone knows that.

I have 20 frets on my acoustic

My hellraiser has 24 frets, but contrary to what people are saying my penis is still quite small :-(

You don't need to play a solo exactly as it is. Add your own flavor to it, man. Change it up a bit.
#25
Or just own a guitar with 24 frets and you're set for 99% of stuff aren't you?
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

i got a 22-fretter for £59.99 a couple of weeks ago.
try using a slider/peice of metal just above the 21st
??? Fund: cba to keep up with it.
will at least try when I get a jerb
