i have a epiphone stock no mods yet but the sound is not quite what im looking for, so its far cheaper for me to replace the pick ups instead of buying new. im replacing the stock pick ups the bucker is going to be replaced with a EMG-H3
and the singles are being replaced by EMG-S3
hopeing this will get me the sound im looking for
oh almost forgot im running all this through a 1969 - 74 traynor ybm - 3 200 wats
I'm a new traynor owner. i just purchsed a 69-74 traynor ygm-1 or a ygm-3 reverberation amp, its in the shop right now getting the tubes changed and cleaned shall i say up to par. havent played it yet when i get it back on the 30th i'll record some sound bites and i'll take pics and post them
i have not had a chance to play with it yet, when its done i'll play on it for a week or 2 and then decide if i get rid of it ( i really want a marshall) or be blown away and decide to keep it. then i'll need it buy some pedals lol, on the front it says guitar reverberation amp it uses old termonology.
Ok a few months ago i bought a old tube amp for about $150, finally got around to getting to my local music store to get new tubes and to get it cleaned up and back up to par (up until that moment i dident even know the make of it), I was told i had a 1969 to 1974 traynor YGM-1 or a YGM-3 i have no experance with traynor amps and was wondering what thoughts or experances other people had or have with them. (when i get it back i will have serial numbers and all other info on this particular amp). the amp on the top of the pic is my amp not the black one on the bottom.
hey srthompson i just did a basic bar all the way accross it's just for basic finger placement.
ya i could have shown bar for C and D but this is just the basics maybe in the future i'll finish the bar cords, I only did A and E and look at how many cords there even i dident finish A or E there is still more.
But i still wished i had this much when i started, oh btw i wont even attempt open cords i'll leave that for someone else, if someone finds a cord diagram for the open cords let me know im trying to get a full library of open and bar cords.
Hell no it wont hurt to play 3/4 size.. I just foung my old 3/4 size guitar even though i have 2 other (full size) i baught all new parts for it and fixed it up and i still love to play it from time to time, i'm currintly setting it up to play slide (too lazy to keep down tuning)
I never quite got into playing with a slide- guess it was just something I never picked up on. That's a really odd shaped guitar- can't say I've ever seen one of those!
Well i dont know the name of it but it is old, and it a 3/4 size guitar.
thanks for the replys and i will try thoes songs.
Well i need a new nut for my guitar (pic above) the strings were to close to the frets, i messed around with it and broke the nut ( how do u break a nut? Dont ask!!!!!) so soon i will make my journey to the guitar shop and get a new 1 until then i have to put my slide learning on hold only for about a week.
if anyone has more great slide songs tell me BTW i love the blues!!!!!
Hey all it's been a wile since i've been here, So who all plays SLIDE? Do you have a dedicated guitar for slide?
Well i've recently started learning to play slide and i took a guitar (my very first) and have dedicated it for slide (the strings are still a lil too close to the frets so i'll get a new nut to remedy that)
The guitar is a old 1 dont know the make but i had to rebuild it from the tuners to saddle ( i had to glue a new bridge on and tryed a number of different glues and even some apoxys but i had no luck so i got p'ed off and bolted the !@#$% neck on lol)and it sounds great for a 3/4 size lol.
As i said i'm just starting to learn to play slide does anybody know any beginner songs i can start off with?
(oh ya what i'm using for a slide is a 5/8" deep socket and a 3/4" deep socket i havent decided what finger to use my ring or pinkey finger)
BKGMorley said B) your machine heads are shit. out of interest, what sort of guitar do u have? i had a samick for ages and i had the same problem but for me it was the g string (rofl). some machine heads just arnt strong enough.
the machine heads are shit theory just doesent fly with me, I've done some searching and there are alot of "shitty" machine heads out there, gotoh are not amone them just because there not made in the USA or say grover doesent mean there "shit" now that doesent mean im saying there among the top brands i'm saying there not "shit"
i play a fenix XL-30 jumbo, i use Martin SP lights e-.012 B-.016 G-.025 D-.032 A-.042 E-.054 (check out link to pic). just changed my strings, the ones i took off were only about 3 weeks old. How do you tell and what does that mead vibrating string? If the machine heads were not strong enough wouldent i have the same problem on the heavier strings?
well the tuning machines are GOTOH i dont know the aspect ratio, could be a bad batch i use martin acoustic SP lights i've used them for a long time, i've been stringing guitars for over 10 years the same way and never had a problem till the last month, i've had the guitar for about 10 years.
