I am looking for some inspiration for an act name for the acoustic duo I am in (1 guy, 1 girl). We play stuff such as City and Colour, KT Tunstall, Ed Sheeran, as well as some heavier stuff (in an acoustic way of course) like A Day to Remember, Deaf Havana.
I have the words...Summer...Sunset....Sunrise....but want to couple them with something that plays on the fact there are two of us...
tbh...I don't know but if you have any suggestions or ideas I am all ears!
One thing I would say to add to what has been said by others, is that if you are struggling for motivation to play you should learn the music you enjoy listening to rather than what could be considered "beginner guitar lesson songs". You are in the right place on UG to find some great tabs for the songs you likely listen to, plus youtube is full of guitar lessons on specific songs. For example, I am listening to a lot of Ed Sheeran and there are dedicated lessons for songs like Small Bump which go step by step.
No one is "born" to play guitar, some people just pick things up more quickly than others. But ultimately hard work will always pay off. Just enjoy playing and don't put too much stress on getting from point A to B as fast as you can. I'll think you'll enjoy playing more when you are playing songs you actually listen to.
Thank you for all the feedback. We actually tried quite a few basses out and decided to go for the VM Jazz bass.
The action was quite high on the Thunderbird off the wall and it felt quite neck heavy. We tried the affinity jazz but it felt very cheap compared to the VM version. Also tried an Ibanez bass which was really nice, but was the same price as the VM.
I am helping my little brother pick out a starter bass and being a guitar player, my knowledge is quite limited when it comes to what are the best low end models when it comes to playability, reliability, and tone.
We are planning to go and play a few this weekend, but any opinions and suggestions on either of these, or even some alternatives would be appreciated!
It has been a long time since I have posted on here! However I have done a rough cover of Breaking Benjamin's song, I Will Not Bow so let me know what you think to the tone etc, or if you have any general comments!
The song is in my UG account for those who would like to listen!
Cheers for the comments guys. Saamon, yeh I went to Aber uni..did politics and history then a masters in management there. I've litterally just finished, got to hand my dissertation in, in a few weeks. What are you going to study there?
Its a really nice university you'll love it, specially the fact its by the seaside thats probably the best part.
EDIT: I will look at the red is the new black today..got my mate coming over 2morrow so could get it done then.
Just to update anyone who is here in the UK we have updated our shows part and are playing The Alternative Mayball In Aberystwyth and for you midlanders we are playing at the victoria Inn in Derby on the 21st of April.
WE are currently In the process of booking a small UK tour so When that has been finalised I'll send out another update.
Hey guys. Would you be so kind to kind to check out my bands firsy single...We recorded it on a mac laptop a while back. Going into the studio soon tho... our myspace Feel free to add us if your on myspace as well
it is defo an electronic problem. Best thing to do (unless ur very able with electronics and soldering) would b to take iot to a shop. It wont cost much to fix at all. You've probably got a bad solder joint, wire come loose or something which just needs to be popped back on. Shouldnt take too long at all..Being as ur still getting output i would guess its a bit of dodgy wiring.
Think the main reason was the fact I was obsessed with them from like the age of 4....I had an early learning centre plastic yellow ukalele when I was 4 and thought I was a guitar god...
Then on turning 8 I begged my mum and dad to get me one...took 3 months to wear them down...got all the usual "you'll never play it...It will just collect dust..." and it did....for bout a month while I was tryin to get lessons...I've been playin 14 years now.."wont say im that good though...but not bad....capable i think is a good word...".
Hey mate just noted that your from Nottingham...I'm from Derby. We are organising a gig at the victoria Inn in derby (notice you've played there before) on the 21st of April. You guys be up for playing a set?? Giz an email on email@example.com
Alis Grave Nil is a band from Aberystwyth in Wales who are currently in the process of recording there first EP which is yet to be titled. Our myspace page contains rough demos of some of the songs we play live. Please add us as friends and listern to our songs.
What the title says...The place I work are looking to cut staff and they are doing it by basically waiting for them to make mistakes and sacking them. My friend was sacked for turning up late the other day cus he got held up at uni...(was on a tempory contract) I asked for time off to revise for exams and got refused..but as it got closer I knew i needed it so I asked again offering extra shifts after exams to make up hours and helo out when I could..Eventually after they still refused I lost my temper and basically said My degree comes first I wont be in work tonite. Now i have been at this place for almost a year with no prior warnings on a perminant part time contract. Apperntly I am being sacked because of missing this time. However I thought that they cannot do this with out having prior warnings as I did inform them and follow company policy and I was even honest (didnt pretend to be sick) Therefore it cannot be classed as gross misconduct..so I'm sacked I think a sueing is in order...I'm in the UK btw.
I think companys that go this way about cutting costs discust me as it isnrt based on who isnt working well, who isnt needed as in hours they have plenty of staff.. Trust theres gonna be a S*** storm when I go in monday.
