  1. I know. We can't always get what we want...but, if we try sometimes...we get what we need.
  2. No you will not. Once you dial in the wheels on the back. You will still have trem action both ways. You will just feel a definite stop at center. You will learn to either go down from that stop on your bar drops, and up for rises from that center. You will lose that both sides of center wiggle.
  3. Here ya go blunt. https://www.seventhstring.com/xscribe/overview.html It is software. Don't be disappointed with the floyd. Just part of a floating trem and all have that issue. You could look into a tremsetter https://hipshotproducts.com/products/tremsetter I use them and they work great. You can dial it in so you can go back and forth. It does change the feel of the trem and you have a center detent to get used to. Try transcribe for your learning. It is good for standard tuning too! you can loop and slow down without pitch change...all kinds of good things for learning songs.
  4. Your floyd is on a balance between your strings tension and the trems springs tension adjusted by the claw. When setup in E STD. and all is balanced. You cannot drop to D STD. . It is not possible. Your springs win then and pulls the bridge back and the saddles can go low then as it goes back(your e string touching the pup). So that big of a tuning change on a floater is just not possible. It takes a spring claw adjustment. Do you have transcribe or something that will change the pitch of the song you are learning?
  5. Here are a few early alphabet ones. A.I.C/Dirt: Would Beatles/Sargent Pepper: A day in the life Sabbath/Master of Reality/Into the Void
  6. One I really like for its raw sound right there sound. Good Time Tonight by Big Bill Broonzy. I really like those old raw recordings better than all the production glitter.
  7. That is funny. I love Fly To The Rainbow and have been learning much of that again. Uli for the win!
  8. [QUOTE=wallywanker;n32514712] i have a 1985 u.s.a. soloist in corvette yellow with the seymour duncan s/s/h setup and the kahler tremelo, about as perfect a shredder as you can find :)...[/QUOTE] They were turning out great guitars then. I also had them do my control layout like a strat instead of the standard Soloist layout.

I have refretted it twice now. This is the one with the Vai mixed paint. Been with me a long while now.
  10. [QUOTE=Hoot Owl;n32511604]I once had an older CR250R, at least I think that's what it was designated. They also called it the Elsinore, Elsinore 250. Like below. [IMG2=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","src":"https:\/\/motocrossactionmag.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2013\/12\/hondacr250elsi.jpg"}[/IMG2] [/QUOTE] Yep, that was 73 when the CR250 Elsinore hit the shores. 74 was when the 125's came out and I moved up from my XR75 to one. This is a shot from 1974 at the NMA International at Rio Bravo in Houston. Heavily modified at this point. I am center #453. I wish I still had that bike![ATTACH=JSON]{"alt":"Click image for larger version Name:\tScan_Pic0061.jpg Views:\t1 Size:\t209.6 KB ID:\t32511768","data-align":"none","data-attachmentid":"32511768","data-size":"full"}[/ATTACH]
  11. My old Lab Series L5 2 x 12 combo. That was a great amp and went a lot of places with me. Sold it for my first Marshall half-stack. Ended up hating that Marshall. What I really regret is selling my 87' CR250R. Should of kept it...but know who has it and can ride it still. Best noise maker I ever had. Two Strokes are musical instruments too.
