I just bought a new phone for $700. I was stoked and couldn't hand over the money fast enough. Within 2 years, that phone is going to be worth $200, tops. I could have used the money to upgrade my guitar instead. A $700 guitar is going to be worth at least $350 for pretty much the rest of it's life. Don't be like me. Buy a guitar and throw out your phone. What do you all think?
I don’t find prs and majesty’s good looking guitars.
Mine was Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, and most of all, David Gilmour.
I would love to hear yours!
What are the top five most useful things (for you, or universally according to your opinion) that you have learned on guitar?
Here are my best guesses:
Your thoughts? Ideas?
#4 Comfortably Numb - David Gilmour / Pink Floyd https://youtu.be/RjJRR3CIocQ
Closing in on number 1 in a few weeks, then I've gotta think of something new to move on to. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I've had a few ideas bouncing around in my head, but nothing solid yet. Lately I've been thinking of putting together a top 25 or 50 list of the top underrated/underappreciated solos of all time, excluding any of the honorable mentions that I've already covered in this project. Thoughts? Ideas?
Well, Comfortably Numb.... Solos don't get much more famous than this beauty from Mr. David Gilmour. Been excited to tackle this one for a while now.
Aside from adding a few cool video effects to this one (starting to learn my way around my video editor), I triple tracked this one the way Gilmour did. Recorded the solo the exact same way twice, then split the second recording and panned each one left and right in the mix, while leaving the main solo down the middle of the mix. Gives it... keep reading on reddit ➡
Here's one of mine
• Red Strats are awesome, but no matter how expensive they are, they always look cheap.
I really like Brian May because I like the way he plays and I think I match his style. Who is your favorite and why?
I have been practicing though
A few days ago i was at a guitarshop in Stockholm, i was looking to try a chorus pedal. An employee gave me 4 to try out and hooked up the amp for me. Since im not experienced in playing infront of people i immediatly felt really uncomfortable, there were some folks in the store. Ive only been playing for two years so i played some of the songs i knew well, but it didnt realy go well at all. It felt as if i was a beginner again.
After a few minutes of failed guitar licks i told the employee that i wasnt really that comfortable yet with playing around people and that it was best to end my session. She said "Noo why do you feel like that? Nobody will mind if you do something wrong, just keep playing!". I smiled at her and got back to it, actually managed to play though a few songs quite well, like "The wind cries mary" and got an idea of some pedals.
I was so happy with my visit that i bought a tuner pedal to support their store. Again, i cant thank you people who support us newbies,... keep reading on reddit ➡
Well... I don't know what to say. Past few days were pretty rough and I had to leave social media because I needed to protect myself. I am a schizophrenic, and because of recent stuff that I've been dealing with, I am under huge stress which makes my illness go wild. I had to breathe deeply outside on Saturday, because I felt like all the stuff that happened to me after I got diagnosed was coming back to me. I had to cry for good 10 minutes before it all stabilised, yet I still feel like it's bad enough for me to keep doing the most mundane, mental survival shit just to not go back to psychosis full time.
I've been playing since I was 16 years old, I believe. Now I am almost 10 years older and I still don't know that much about guitar, I cannot play solos, the only chords I know are the cowboy chords and their variations, basic power chords and that's basically it. I decided to try to get better at it because it helps me keep focused on the whole process of learning and practicing, be... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I just got back from my girlfriend's and my dads friends had been over and played my brand new charvel, which normally I wouldnt have a problem with. But after they were done rather than put it back on the rack in my room they just shoved it into the other full guitar rack right next to a carbon fiber acoustic, and as you could guess it's now got a few small dings. Absolutely nothing major but enough to bother me because it was so avoidable
I have now adopted a policy of no one plays my guitar unless I am there
I’m trying to write a song but there are no chords I know that fit the sound I’m hearing in my head.
I’ve been experimenting, and trying to hear each note of the chord that is in my head, and then translate it to my fingers, but I can’t quite get it how I’d like it.
Anyone have any tips/advice? I know it’s kinda a shot in the dark...
It's a pretty nice Yamaha and aside from the broken headstock it's in really great shape. It was a pretty clean break and I was able to glue it back together.

This is now the best guitar i own and I couldn't be happier.
So I just bought a starter guitar and I’m pretty excited don’t have many people to tell who’d care so figured to post it on here I’m pretty excited I haven’t learned a new instrument since trumpet in middle school
Edit: I was not expecting all these comments 😂 Thank you guys really this made my whole day
It’s part of her minstrel cycle.
I'm 34 and love guitar.
I have no knowledge on how to play though and I'm wondering if I'm too old to get started.
Found some online courses online (during this covid-19) and I'm wondering if I should give it a try...
Would like to learn enough to play on summer campings with friends basically..
