  2. How's this for a bump? Still available?
  3. I have a Wampler Tweed 57. I got it in trade, has velcro on the bottom and a small scratch on the side. I'd say 9.5/10 condition. Paypal'd w/ gift option price including shipping contus is $150.

  7. Are you using other than a uniform distribution? Because I got tons of D's and B's and pretty much nothing else. Just calling Math.random() right now. Nothing fancy.
  8. 1. Anything that comes with a LOT of questions/confusion (i.e. theory) Sure you can learn theory online - but it can take YEARS instead of months. I have said over and over here that this is the single best lesson you can ever take. Go to a piano teacher or some other instrument (really any accredited teacher can walk you through the levels) I guess this depends on how far you want/need to go, and the quality of the references you end up with. I think we agree that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and the right teacher is better than the right book or the right video for addressing weaknesses.
  9. If I would have known that paying for lessons would have driven me away from music, I wouldn't have signed up in the first place. The best guitar lesson I ever got wasn't a guitar lesson. It's a program called BandWorks in the SF Bay Area that sets you up with a band for 2 months. You rehearse a handful of songs and put on a show with the other bands at the end of the session. Felt more about music than guitar if that makes any sense.
  10. Personally I think a guitar teachers job is to get you self-sufficient so that you won't need them anymore. You don't need a teacher to learn songs or teach theory, that can all be had online and in books if not free then for very cheap. You do need a teacher to help you improve with your specific technique. Also to point out where the theory and songs meet when it's not obvious. Personally I've realized that I could have got way more from my lessons, from books, online, and in person, if I had just taken the time to really memorize the fretboard first many many years ago. So I've been working on that. No teacher needed.
  11. Thats very cool. What is that guitar? Yamaha I'm guessing? Tyler Variax JTV-69
  12. I dig that! How much does it weigh?
  13. Accidentals are definitely on the way. The randomness is at the mercy of Javascript, but I can find other ways to do it. Forcing a more even distribution is certainly an option. Now back to my top-secret guitar-lair!
  14. It is what it is. I based it off of an exercise I liked on a Lick Library DVD: The Path To Fretboard Mastery. http://www.licklibrary.com/store/matthew-von-doran/23035/the-path-to-fretboard-mastery-dvd
  15. I am working on drilling in all of the notes on the fretboard (again). This time I wrote this handy tool: http://randomnaturalnotes.com Do either one string at a time, a span of frets, or the whole fretboard. Whenever a note pops up, find all of them and then move onto the next one. It's nothing fancy, but I couldn't find anything like it for the iPhone/iPad.
  16. But I have always taught that the most important thing to learn is every note on your fretboard. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiQ_y1I6J5A Thanks, I definitely needed to hear that!
  17. Simple question. Never seen a Klon pedal for $750 US. Apologies. That's $150 less than I've seen one go for.
