Default so i started playing guitar again

yeah so i was too fat to play guitar for a long time but now i can play again

i have a really nice old martin guitar but years of abuse in bad humidity when i was using drugs has made it have terrible intonation.

i decided i might fix it up later, but got a new cheapy guitar that's coming tomorrow.

i went to sam ash and tried out like 20 guitars under $400 and this was the best, the Yamaha FG830:

https://www.sweetwater.com/store/det...nought-natural

pretty much $300 everywhere, I got it from here because they supposedly check intonation and stuff before they ship. guy called me after i ordered, too, which was nice of them. was surprised to find a rosewood fretboard on any cheap guitar. my favorite

gonna get it tomorrow excited!

just thought i'd share. can't wait to play glynis and it not sound like absolute shit

I'm currently setting up my Jazzmaster again, basically taking it apart and putting it back together again. This chart has been helpful.

I've never thought about it much myself, but agreed. Maple has too much friction imo.

got the guitar and played for a few hours feels nice. super easy to play and sounds great. obviously not the best sounding guitar in the world but after playing a guitar with terrible intonation for a while it sounds like heaven

You're just making excuses for your shitty guitar playing.

I'm a weirdo in this regard. I know rosewood is a softer wood but I feel like my fingers stick into a maple neck and really allow me to get full mobility and traction

Glad to hear you are playing again Reprise. I think we talked about it awhile back so it's awesome to see things reach fruition. you should post some stuff after you've gotten back into it

You're never too fat to play guitar reprise. Thom Yorke wrote a song called Anyone Can Play Guitar and that included fat-asses.

So this is a message for any of you self-doubting overtly obese corn-dog munching beached whales out there: follow your dreams, never give up, keep going and who knows where it may lead; maybe one day you too could play guitar for a shitty pop-punk band like Bowling For Soup.
