  1. Ever cry while singing/writing your own song?

    12 August 2017 - 03:45 PM

    This happened to me again today, i was just practicing singing and throwing out whatever words came to me, then i jotted down the lyrics and finished them than while playing the new tune, i just started balling like a baby...
    Does this happen to you too?
  2. Bending technique help

    02 July 2017 - 03:01 PM

    So i love bending my g string to get that sort of soul that comes from down bends, up and down vibrato and just to get that screaming . Bending is probably the best way to give your guitar a voice and make it express itself as if it were your voice, in my opinion. But, after about a year of owning my LP Studio and practicing hitting the right notes when i bend, and having a terrible ear for that, I found my frets were getting totally trashed. Now after almost 2 years I go see my luthier friend who tells me its already time for me to get another guitar, because re-fretting this one would not be worth the expense and trouble. Whether or not his opinion is correct on that doesnt matter but he also said most guitars have this type of nickel frets and that it is a matter of technique. So my question is can anyone tell me what technique i need to understand on bending that will allow me to get the notes correct and not destroy my next guitars frets the way this one is? There is apparently a right way and then there is whatever i been doing for 2 years.

    Any suggestions?

  4. basic finish care

    10 April 2017 - 10:00 PM

    This question is probably answered here in another post and i apologize for my laziness. but this is specific.

    I went to gc and asked for gibson polish which i saw in the display case. They were closing up and in a rush and somehow I let them talk me into a product called "65 guitar polish" by dunlop. BEFORE i use this on my 2015 les paul studio manhatten midnight (spelling...its blue), nitro laquer finish in an effort to remove some of the film that is hard to remove, assumed to be from resting my arm on it while i play, I need to ask, IS THIS STUFF SAFE?
