Hey i'm sure i've asked this before, but what are some good songs for an intermediate learner to try? So far of all the songs i've taught myself, Siva is the most fun to play - a few interesting chords, lots of sections to learn, nice balance of riffing and leads. Any suggestions?

They do indeed have nice pickups stock but I replaced them on my old one with dimarzio's dp155s and it gave it the sound I'm looking for.

Yeah there is a lot of new stuff. The black tops, the pawn shop models... I'm liking the mij 2007 models though I wouldn't mind the pawn shop bass vi.

Is it worse than a Floyd Rose?

Break a string and not have cutters and an allen key set and 10 minutes to get the thing in tune??

I got a mocking bird with floyd rose (yeah lol) and I like it but I'm fixed bridge + locking tuners for life now.

actually there's a new system called Evertune that's based around routing your guitar for it, which means losing a considerable amount of wood

BUT - you tune your guitar once, and no matter what happens to it, it'll keep that same tune forever

that is TEMPTING

particularly for me because i'm obsessed with being perfectly in tune
two or three cents off on one string can drive me crazy

It's not like a floyd or whatever where you need to get the balance of everything spot on. You tune up however you want and the system then works to retain whatever balance is set. It's kinda a weird mechanical system of springs and levers and pulleys but apparently not all that difficult.

It's supposedly not that great though as it can adjust out some of the subtlety in guitar playing. And also guitars by nature shouldn't be perfectly in tune everywhere. It's a perfectly imperfect instrument. Dunno the science of it tbh but if you're playing in a band and your the only one with Evertune there's occasions when you're going to sound a little out of tune.

i don't think i've ever played a guitar that has crazy dive action and i don't think i've ever had a problem with a guitar staying in tune. i guess they are both related.

you're lucky to be able to get a semitone from a gretsch bigsby and that's how i like it

Default i want to complain

Just kind of posting out loud for a second but J.H.C. I have been looking for a pedal board and flight case combo for forever.

I need one that is no larger than 31.5 inches long (exterior) but it needs to be at least 28" long (interior). I want the kind where the bottom lid is the bottom of the board, but i also need a riser to house a power supply (voodoo labs 4x4 is less than 2" tall and the width of about two pedals) underneath.

Pedaltrain doesn't make my size, Trailer Trash is too expensive/complex. I found a bunch of great cheap ones (under 100) that is just a cheap flight case that uses the bottom (the smaller) lid as the pedal board but i would have to find one that has enough height clearance for me to add a small riser to to either the whole bottom layer or just a partial layer to house the power supply underneath.

i'm only seeing options of 5-6" high. that might not be enough, whereas the pt-pro with ata case is about 9" high.

here are the cheapies i was looking at - http://hybridcases.com/09/ http://www.rondomusic.com/product7519.html http://www.rondomusic.com/product7515.html

for the $$$ I would really like to make one of those work even if i had to make a riser of some kind. but if pedaltrain made a 28" model i would have bought it years ago.

because i want an ata case for it. it's not so much the board at this point, it's the housing.

my problem hasn't been the money necessarily i just find it hard to believe that only one company makes what i need. there have to be alternatives for a 28" rising board.

Bought me a Roland JC-77 last weekend. The chorus sounds so pretty. Throw a reverb and delay pedal in and you're set. I used to have a Boss CE-2 pedal which sounded amazing but I had to sell it (apparently it's not easy to find, I found it at goodwill for $3). Anyway this amp's chorus sounds as good as that pedal, which makes sense.

Gotta get a good, cheap distortion pedal though. Ideas?

rat or rat clone. the big muff. standard distortion. They aren't expensive. good and cheap don't exist much in the pedal world. And I build them myself and they cost a fair amount of money and labor, even doing it as cheap as possible. danelectro has lots of cheap pedals. boss has a few good ones (lots actually)

this power supply is amazing. i can plug my entire board into it and everything is dead quiet. i had 7-8 pedals powered by wall warts going into one of those heavy duty power supplies and had the thing maxed out.

now i only need two spots for the entire rig. amp and power supply.
