Playing long is quite fun, and you feel good about yourself when you do it too I've had a few 6-7 hours sessions sometimes, and in that time, you can do the warm up, jamming, technique practice, then jam some more, and just have fun doing with what you're doing!
The best way and most joyful way to learn is to play in the company of another who you can inspire and aspire with. Ever had a truly awesome jam with another ? once you have you realize how powerful playing the guitar with another can be.
I have had that, and this is not a question of guitar playing, but the joy of it being diminished by poor gear, and how it's ****ing up some of the aspects to my(and perhaps others) playing.
Have any of you guitar players at UG felt that your crappy gear is holdning you back, and making it less motivating to play? I'm have a guitar that won't stay in ****ing tune, and the bridge is also ****ed, and the strings are old and rusty, and my amp is a MG, and it's got a volume problem, and the tone is horrible, and im too poor to fix any of this ****, it's quite depressing for me, indeed...
Skills before gear bro, i figured, that a cheap guitar is good for beginners wanting to learn, im poor, and i've come a long way since i first started 2 years ago, and im so ****ing sick of the GRG now, it never stays in tune, and when playing a tune like CFH by Pantera, it buzzez like crazy, but the Richwood guitar doesn't buzz at all during that song, and it sounds much clearer and better, that's what promped me to ask this question...
I have a Ibanez GRG 170DX, and i have a Richwood Vendetta guitar, i believe the Richwood is a copy guitar, it was because of this i found out to my suprise that the Richwood, actually sounded and played better than the Ibanez guitar, i thought Richwood was an unknown copy brand of guitars, is there something i don't know about? :P
When playing pantera songs etc. with high gain, i always get some hizz noise, which ruins the song, and makes it feel untight, got any tips on PM tech's? I usually pick above the neck humbucker, and a little over when standing, does it have something to do with this?
I have a problem with my hair, im trying to grow it to Fredrik Thordendal style, with long straight hair, but the hair over my ears are curly, so it totally ****s up the style, does it work if i shave the hair at the back, and over my ears off? If not, im ****ed right?
