  1. Perhaps when you engage the Run switch it loads down the Power Supply to the point where it can no longer supply enough current to run the motor. If there is a leaky filter capacitor - perhaps in the power amplifier - it could be what is loading down the Power Supply. I would suggest getting a schematic diagram with a voltage chart and making some measurements (carefully) with the Run switch in both positions.
  2. Sometimes sending MIDI SysEx data requires two way MIDI communication (two MIDI cables between the interface and the synth)
  3. I've played piano and guitar all of my life. My father, who was my first teacher, taught me to play, to read music and some basic theory. I had a very good music teacher in high school. I approach the guitar the same way as I do the piano - where I see all the notes and the chords laid out in front of me. I make us of fingering patterns on the guitar but don't limit myself to 'boxes' when I improvise. Electric guitar is my main instrument and, although I sometimes use synthesizers (guitar and keyboard), I would describe myself as more of a piano player than a keyboard player.

  5. I agree, absolutely. I think of someone dropping off a stack of poems and then sitting down at the piano and turning them into timeless musical masterpieces - sometime in the length of time it took to play through the song (according to legend). To me, that's Paul McCartney level of musical genius - especially the ability to just keep doing it for decades. When I was getting started, back in the early '70s, my piano teachers were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Elton John and Carole King albums and sheet music. I remember how excited I was when I found the book with all of the songs from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
  6. ... and, not taking anything away from Bernie, it's Elton's genius that brought their wonderful collaborations to the world.
  7. That's the kind of thing that breaks up bands - friends and collaborators end up in bitter disputes up on cripple creek.
  8. It's important to point out that the DC resistance of a guitar pickup is not a direct measurement of the strength of the output signal. With all else being equal, the DC resistance can give a relative indication if the length of one wire is different than the other. What determines the strength of the output signal is the number of turns of wire in the coil and the strength of the magnetic field. If the magnet and the diameter of the wire are the same in two different pickups then the DC resistance can be used to determine which pickup has more (or less) turns of wire in the coil(s) and can be used to indicate which of the two pickups has a higher output.
  9. My LP is a '94 Studio - It was an anniversary year for Gibson and, for some reason, the guitars are exceptionally good. It has an ebony fingerboard and the finish was removed during a headstock repair. After that, the guitar took on a whole new personality and, although it doesn't look like much, it's the best guitar I have ever had.
  10. Re-fret is an issue for me. Frets are like strings - but you don't have to change them as often.
  11. It does look weird but it could be an optical illusion caused by reflections from the darker and lighter bits of the inside of the case. It doesn't look quite as drastic in this picture...
  12. this looks interesting .... Babicz Full Contact Ashtray Telecaster Bridge at NAMM 2020 https://mikesgig.com/babicz-full-contact-ashtray-telecaster-bridge-at-namm-2020/?fbclid=IwAR104TX8kRSYoYbsJ3QgCc8q6ZK955ioCVTbS8CXhpWJyU79zCuFJ2V-5p0
