  1. I can’t believe someone would by a 4K plus guitar and not know how to change strings? So weird.
  2. Oh man those are beautiful. I’m sure the naked one has quite a story. Mine is only slightly fading. You can still definitely see it but it’s losing some of the paint for sure. This was my first nice instrument and it still makes me smile every time I see it and it somehow even still smells great.
  3. I use d’addario phosphor nickel 12s and only change strings about once or maybe twice a year. I love the sound and feel of old strings. That’s cool our guitars are siblings. Is your bird starting to fade as well as the flowers? Mine are and I actually love how it’s aging.
  4. Thank you. I’ve gone from using my phone to using an apogee usb mic to just getting the zoom H6 this week. I have really liked it so far, and it can even be used as an audio interface with my DAW (reaper). I didn’t do anything to it in the mix so it’s just the sound of the mic on the zoom. I really have no idea how to properly mix or anything as I’m an absolute newb with this stuff. Thanks for listening!
  5. Thanks! I do tend to play quietly, especially on these instrumentals. I’ll need to find something to dig in on. The guitar is a 2012 hummingbird true vintage. Is the black ring an odd thing to have on it? Thanks for listening and the kind words.
  6. Alright here’s another attempt at recording. This time a Bill Frisell song.
  7. Thank you Lars. The exact feedback I’m looking for. I’m using a USB microphone and I think I may need to buy a real mic and an audio interface. I can’t believe I didn’t notice the bad placement haha.
  8. Hey all. Been a while since I posted here. I'm learning how to record my guitar as all my straight to phone recordings sound very amateur. Here's my first attempt of recording video on my phone and using a mic to record the audio directly to my computer. Hope everybody is staying safe. https://youtu.be/eKwnoJRSpxg
  9. Man this guitar is awesome. I've been looking for a hollowbody guitar for a while and initially settled on Gretsch 6118 anniversary players' edition. I took delivery of that last month and it was just off. The intonation was pretty bad, the guitar wasn't very resonant, the finish was kind of sticky. It looked great though and the filtertrons sounded pretty good. I did send it back though. I luckily stumbled onto the CME site and saw that there was this 1961 ES-330 (and it happened to be just a little more than the Gretsch). I immediately ordered it as I love Gibson guitars and didn't think

    NGD ES-330

    I have the same model from CME coming this week. I can't wait. Are you using 10s or 11s? Also, the specs say it has a slim neck, but CME says it's not that slim. What do you think?
  11. I love the sound of old strings as well. I normally change mine twice a year. I recently changed strings on my Hummingbird TV and put on D'Addario Nickel Bronze strings. I've found these to feel a lot like worn strings when I put them on. The color is a little different, the strings almost look like electric strings, but the sound and feel is great.
  12. I enjoyed this. Nice improvement from Fake Plastic Trees. Seems like you're on a bit of a Radiohead bender. One of my favorite bands. For me, the lyrics reference the mundane, materialistic modern society in which people just work and die.
  13. Panicking over this is insane to me but glad you got it resolved to make you happy.
  14. 1. Anything Justin Sandercoe teaches as noted by EuroAussie 2. I've recently purchased Howard Morgen's Fingerboard Breakthrough course and have been really enjoying it. It gets into very technical aspects of the guitar without being overly boring or complex. He's a great teacher (Paul Simon was one of his students) and a fantastic player and I've had a few "A-ha" moments going through the course so far: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ojEu8xsIS8 3. Carl Brown has a ton of awesome song and theory lessons https://guitarlessons365.com/song-lessons/
  15. Good to know. I though Ren was still around in 2012 when mine was made which is why I asked whether it was possible he had engraved it :) Wishful thinking. As far as the guard material itself, is it the "flubber" that you mentioned in your previous post or something else?
