Man I love the guitar.....


Svet

Recommended Posts

I don't know what I would do to relieve stress if it weren't for the guitar. Today is my late day at work so I get the morning to myself to make tons of noise! I had a Rock and Roll groove going on and I had a bunch of my Epi Elitists out along with a few Fenders. I don't know how people can pick one type of guitar to use. I love em all and can't get enough. So today I played my Elitist Les Paul Standard plus, Tak Matsumoto, Casino and Sheraton and my Deluxe Strat and Tele through a Fender Vibroverb Custom with a TS8. All of these guitars just smoke through that amp! I mostly used the Casino today and man, I love those P90's!

Svet... any chance of a complete list of what you own? Same goes for Charlie Brown as well! Seems that you two have an endless supply of guitars in hidden vaults in your magic guitar maze of a house!!

 

I was playing my new Rickenbacker 325 copy into my Vox ADVT50. My legs are sore form all the obligatory knee bending playing "A Hard Day's Night"

I'm with you, Svet! I had the last two nights off and spent at least six hours with one guitar or another in my hands over the course of the two days. Now I'm looking forward to our "start of the week" rehersal and getting into the next five nights of performances.

 

It does hit you every once in a while, doesn't it?

Well now, here's the thing:

 

If you are an established musician with a "signature" sound, then its understandable that you might get dug in with a particular instrument. It's hard to imagine Lester sitting at the Irdium Jazz Club on a Monday night with a Telecaster on his knee, or BB King wailing away on a Dean.

 

I like the variety that having a few different guitars gives me ... besides, I like shiny, pretty things with strings on them (oh ... and I like turtles too!).

As far as the one guitar question' date=' I fell in love with the look, sound and feel of the LP from the very beginning. Don't really want or need to play any other style. Have been having some gas pains for a Telecaster recently though.[/quote']

 

Hi Bvarsel, that's how it starts!! Good Luck!

So True Jim! I'm in the same boat with you, Shiny = good!

Can't wait till i'm good enough to bang sumptin' out. As it is, i know the intros to about 10-12 hard rock classics, but play most of 'em pretty badly. My best impression is the intro and main riff to the Doobie Bros "China Grove", it really roars of my cheapest electric, a chinese strat ($129) with with wilkinson pups ($45), it's really quiet at rest, but slam it with a 1.2 pick and it just erupts with just a hint of that quack.

 

BAM BAM, SHUFFLE SHUFFLE, BAM BAM, SHUFFLE SHUFFLE

 

absolutely love it.

 

Other songs i'm learning use the same chords, Whole Lotta Love, American Woman works, don't remember the name of the chords, but you barre at 7 except you only sorta bump the low E str to mute it, then you barre at 9 as far as the D str, and it's movable, works at 5/7, 4/6, 3/5, and you can take it down one string lower so the low E gets fretted.

 

I know all of you guys would be so familiar with it, i'll remember the names one day.

 

I also know my caged chords and all min variants plus about 8 or so others, gotta work on my fret hand and some of those chord changes, but it is improving slowly, know the strings and most the lower frets too. I can actually pick a tune pretty good (not fast stuff), had 2 or 3 months of lessons at school (37yrs ago) just b4 i left to start working. The teacher was a beatles man and he taught us Elenor Rigby and Get Back, just the melody line picked, he didn't bother with chords, not while i was there anyway.

 

And finally any one learning and wants to rock, get an AC/DC tab book, don't use a dozen diff interpretations of the web, get a book, man they got so many books published than you can poke a stick at. See, the Young bros have a songwriter/producer bro called George, he's partner in crime (and has been since the early sixties) Harry Vanda, in the early and mid sixties they were the train behind The Easybeats, they had various reunions under various guises through the years, probably when the studio was low in bookings or they got bored or sumptin', but they basically run Alberts Studios in Sydney, AC/DC recorded all their early albums there, most of the ones with Bon Scott (R.I.P.) as frontman. I've been up to to those studios twice to meet Harry and George, it's a buzz just sitting on the 10' high little stage that's got big black grand planted on it, and lying back looking at all the different colour gaffer tape on the ceiling wich is about 12' high, suppose they could put drums there too, you know drummers don't like it unless they're a little bit higher than anyone else on stage. (that'll get back) hehehe Gotta autographed copy of If You Want Blood 2mnths b4 it went retail.

Anyway, Alberts the studio ownners main business is to publish music, hence Ac/DC have released so many books. It'll provide heaps of variety, and they're not thin on the ground either. But the main reason to choose one of their books is that most of the riffs and intros are fairly easy to reach, a lot of there stuff is based around the A chord (2nd fret), a doddle.

 

Shirt, what a rant.

Hi Matiac' date=' how's your neck?

[/quote']

 

Much better, thanks. Fixed the glitch in my arm too, now I'm good for way more than 10 minutes playing without pain setting in, and pain ain't even a factor anymore. Played for about 1 1/2 hours last night with no trouble whatsoever, and all this a mere 2 weeks after the surgery! There is however still a rather painful "POP" whenever I turn my head to the left, maybe that'll work itself out with P.T. for the next 3 weeks. We'll see, but again, thanks for asking. By the way, YOU HAVE WAY TOO MANY GUITARS!!! Just kidding, that's quite the collection you have there, they BETTER be insured, and have you got guard dogs around their locked safe when your not around? And perhaps a posse of "associates", in case the guard dogs don't pan out? In this neighborhood, I wouldn't let ANYONE know I had a stable like that around. I took the liberty of using a picture you had posted before of just your Les Pauls...cuz I dig Les Pauls, and used it as wallpaper on my antiquated Gateway 2000 Desktop with Windows 98 SE hooked up to a high speed wireless hub, and my favorite Lester is the one second from the left, the...Gibson. In the picture, it looks like a Triburst...SWEET looking guitar!

Hi Matiac, I'm glad to see that you're feeling better and that you are spending time here on the forums again. That guitar you like is the R9 and it is a great instrument. I've got plenty of security around and it goes as far as video cameras with remote servers as well as dogs and moats and gators!

Svet' date=' I think we are related. Let me come over and talk over old times and jam with you and ten or twelve of your guitars. ;-)

 

Thanks for the pics. Cheers.[/quote']

 

I thought you had enough play time on them last year at the family picnic? OK, I guess we'll do it again this year.

Holy byrdland! That thing is huge!

 

A wonderful collection of guitars. No SG's???

 

I'm not typically in to the blueburst but' date=' your 137 looks spectacular.

 

Love em all to be honest.

[/quote']

 

Thanks DJBo8, I've had a few bouts of GAS for an SG over the years but everytime I went to look I just didn't want one enough. Now I am GAS free and the guitars that I would like I just can't justify as they are too expensive (i.e. Gibson L5 or Fender Merle Haggard CS Tele). Here are some additional Pictures of that ES 137:
