  1. Hey, guys. One problem I am having with my guitar playing is that damn string noise! I know I'm not the only one here who has this trouble, so hopefully some of the responses will yield helpful tips. When I play with delay, especially with a decent amount of gain, I seem to get a ton of noise. But not notes. I mean noise like, my fret hand sliding, my picking hand resting to mute the strings, etc. etc. How do you prevent your delay from echoing your every twitch? In the studio, you could just record something dry and add delay on afterwards... but what about live? Thanks for any help!
  2. Hey guys, my friend is selling his Gibson SG Faded Red Special for $600 on eBay. It is a completely legit sale, in fact I have a recording of him and I playing Comfortably Numb and a self-written song if you'd like proof (I even have a video, heh). http://cgi.ebay.com/2005-Gibson-Faded-Red-Special-SG_W0QQitemZ110017369738QQihZ001QQcategoryZ47073QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
  3. Scrambled. There's nothing like the taste of an egg that a chicken laid just ten minutes before hand. Seriously.

  6. Originally posted by jazzbo When I first started I always rested my hand on the bridge until an instructor pointed out that it gets a trebly tone. He also pointed out that a lot of people pick up near the neck. He must have changed something because I notice that I now pick with my palm floating and my pinky lightly anchored on the soundboard. Interesting, because that's my preferred way of picking. But people tell me it's improper... yet I feel so much more comfortable doing it.
  7. Hi, everyone. So, a little background... I've been playing guitar since August 2003. I would say I am decent. I can play some OK stuff. But I am having a problem with my technique: my picking hand! I just feel like I am doing something wrong. Like, my palm maybe isn't positioned correctly on the bridge... and I have too much of an angle on the low E and A strings (which may have to do with me feeling like my hand isn't positioned correctly). I THINK I am holding the pick correctly (flat part of my thumb, side of my index). But I can feel the side of my thumb slightly touch the strings sometimes. The last problem I am having is string-noise. I think it's a combination of left and right hand technique. Can anyone give me some tips/advice? If I HAVE to, I will see about getting a DVD and/or book. Thanks! - MikeyE
