    Im actually glad Sonic Youth tours with like 60 guitars. Becuase of the tunings it would be impossible for them to tour otherwise. Its also fun to see what the **************** they are all using from song to song as all 3 of em switch up constantly.

    Star ****************ers love their dilitantes. "Oh Dear, I saw a drop of sweat fall onto Yingwies guitar, wish I could lick it up." Those ass holes have egos that are in outer space. The multiple guitar changes have come about only in the last few years. That **************** never used to happen. Changing guitars is like R Plant putting a ****************ing cucumber in his pants so all the little girls would think he has a humongous cock. "Stagecraft." Elmore James and Slim Harpo in blues and rock and rollers used the same ****************ing guitar during a whole set. I know, I was there. As I have said in here before, a real guitarist can make a 50 ****************in' dollar guitar sound like a state of the art high dollar guitar. Can retune in a heartbeat right there on stage in front of everyone. There is a differnce between generations I see. Much more flash and ego now, ****************ing show offs! Yingwie or whatever his first name is should change his name to BOB! Or BILL. Saw Eric Johnson in Austin and he was satisfied with one guitar, but I suppose some of you in here would think that is archaic. "Just a thought."


    This is a riot! Thanks!!!!!!!!!

    Why does it bother you so much?
    Take a breath. Relax. Life's too short.

    Sorry I hurt your feelings kid.


    Nice, intelligent response. Couldn't you think of a clever reply?

    The majority of the time it's for different tunings. I'm surprised it took this long to be posted.


    Yup. Plus some guys switch off rather than tune between songs.

    How is metal more posturing than any other style? It's more honest in my opinion. If you want to bang your head and show off, I find that less posturing than a guy who is constantly being handed

    Depends.

    I can see the need for a few.

    In a Blues setup, if you use Standard tuning, open G, and open E, thats 3...throw in backups and you are up to 6.

    Even in the situation I am in playing Metal in one band, I can see the need for 2 6 strings, and 2 7 strings, and thats assuming you drop the E to D for the drop D stuff on one of the 6 strings.

    If I dont want to fiddle with tuning at all, I'm up to 6 again.

    I am a big believer in having backups for as much as possible...

    I gig with a minimum of three guitars -- a Tele, a Strat, and a Wolfgang. Some songs just require different sounds. I've even played gigs with another Tele on top of that just because I have a particular Tele that gets sounds that my other Teles don't get.

    I'm sure the artist on stage doesn't give a toss what you think. Let me guess.. you play Metal? How much of your post is posturing?

    Is it a photo of Paul McCartney on that first guitar from the left?


    Yes it is a Hamer with a paint job that is a tribute to the Beatles.

    I take three to shows. Main, backup for main, and one for alt tuning.


    My set-up exactly ... fortunately, I haven't a stringbreak on stage since we started the band ... for some reason, it's only ever happened at rehearsal.

    all I can think of is that they either had different guts or whenever he uses a capo (often) he has his tech tune the guitar with the capo on before bringing it onstage instead of just tossing a capo on his main guitar. Hey, if you've got the budget...


    Slapping a capo on your guitar often pulls your strings sharp so I can understand why Jeff Tweedy would get someone else to check his tunings while he continues with the show.

    It's one of my pet peeves when a singer/songwriter slaps a capo on their guitar and starts playing without checking whether the damn thing is in tune.

    If I slap on a capo, I always check the tuning with a pedal tuner and make some comment like, "We tune because we care." It usually gets a laugh.

    The majority of the time its because the band is being paid or comp'ed to play certain guitars by the manufacturer through promo deals.

    I'm surprised it took 4 pages for this to be posted.
