I honestly believe a smooth dip/twang with some smooth vibrato is one of the sexiest moves on the guitar

most guitarists i know remove the twang bar even if it has the option. they say stupid things like "it makes me go out of tune!"

like i know dudes with sick 60s SGs WITH THE BAR and they just refuse to use it.

like i get it if you don't want to use it but don't make dumb excuses. personally i think its one of the sickest effects and it's built in.

I totally agree, but also it's the most revealing indicator of bad taste and campyness when it's done even slightly wrong or too much.

For those who do it -
You know who you are

There's literally nothing worse in music than to see a guitar player play a crappy gassed out blues lick and then hesitating ever so slightly before decidedly yanking the bar in pavarotti style

and this thread is essentially surf rock 101 for a board about The Smashing Pumpkins so it'd be pretty stupid to not at least mention them, eh? it ain't like it's the 60s & their the hottest thing outside the British Invasion, I honestly only found out about them via the "bargain bin" of my local record store - tho obv found out pretty quickly they were kind of a big deal

guitar players ITT - have you removed the twang bar or do you leave it on?

always wanted a gibson SG with the bar attached to the bridge or even just a japanse knockoff

when i had a Gretsch with the big bar attached to the bridge you could literally feel the entire string section buckling. and you couldn't really pull up at all.

i did some music for some indie documentary about egypt a long time ago (just dumped a bunch of songs) and one time the russian director was at my attic apartment and i played her my first "twang" song just for fun and she said it was "the saddest thing she ever heard"

emotionally, she meant. so chill. twang is under-rated. idk if I even have that file anymore. I suffered an entire external hard drive crash around that time and lost years of work.

I tried out a Gretsch, but decided to go back to the trusty strat because it's so Ace for surf

I'm more confused about the lowercase letters. Why not ACE.
