  • Is it too late to learn to play guitar?

    I'm 30 and would like to pick up a new instrument for my spare time. Is it too late to learn a new instrument? and is it difficult? I played piano when I was a kid and a trumpet/barotone in highschool band and that's about it.

  • Concert or Dreadnought Guitar?

    Best answer: Alex, I think you're relying far too much on what web "experts" of unknown knowledge have to say about a couple of guitars you've never tried. People (myself included) throw around terms like "projection", "balanced tone" and "bass response" when describing guitars.... show more
    Best answer: Alex, I think you're relying far too much on what web "experts" of unknown knowledge have to say about a couple of guitars you've never tried. People (myself included) throw around terms like "projection", "balanced tone" and "bass response" when describing guitars. While these properties are real, they are often more subtle and less important than all the hype would lead you to believe.

    The main difference between the FG800 and FS800 is body size. While the difference in tone and volume are real, they are not so significant as to make one more "versatile" than the other. Both are good guitars. If you're planning on playing in an acoustic bluegrass band where you have to be heard over banjo and fiddle, the FG800 with it's massive dreadnought body is a better choice. Otherwise, it's more a matter of personal preference. Which do *you* like the sound of, and which is more comfortable for *you*? There's only one way you'll know, and that's to try them out in person. I know that isn't what you want to hear. Amazon is so convenient, but honestly it's a horrible way to buy a guitar. Even if you have to travel a significant distance to find a guitar shop, it's worth it....and fun. Also, don't fall prey to the myth that amazon has better buys. Brick and mortar stores are keenly aware of the online competition and routinely match or beat online prices.

    Back to the differences between the two guitars, here is a good online comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIRX6UMH...

  • How do I get my songs to be heard by major record labels?

    I recently wrote a few songs that I am very proud of, but I don't know what to do next. I know that the chances are extremely low, but I am hoping that a big record label like Warner Bros., Universal, or Atlantic will listen to them.

    I recently wrote a few songs that I am very proud of, but I don't know what to do next. I know that the chances are extremely low, but I am hoping that a big record label like Warner Bros., Universal, or Atlantic will listen to them. I don't have the slightest clue on what to do, though. I'm pretty sure that I have to go to a professional recording studio, but I can only play one instrument. The recording studio I visited does have professionals who can play other instruments for me, which is great. But what happens after I record my songs? How am I supposed to make demos, and how will the publishers at record labels hear my songs? Where should I hire a manager that can give my demos to the record labels? Also, many websites said I need to start a Spotify and gain many followers on Instagram and YouTube. How do I do this? P.S. I am a 17 year old girl and I write my music and lyrics myself.

    Best answer:  
    Depending on the brand and type, classical guitar strings can take from four days to a few weeks to become really stable, but the tuning will still need to be touched up fairly frequently.  Try a set of fluorocarbon strings.  I can recommend the D'Addario Pro-Arté Carbon with Dynacore basses, which attains stability very quickly.

    As the string tension is a little higher with this type, use normal tension strings, model EJ45FF, unless you routinely play with extra-hard tension,

    Have the guitar tuned for you, and when you want to touch up the tuning, use a clip-on electronic tuner.  Start by tuning a string down about 1/2 turn (for wound) or one turn (for nonwound).  If you;re unsure which direction is "down", observe that the nylon capstan moves so as to loosen the string.  Then, tune the string up to pitch.  If the strings were allowed to settle and the guitar was tuned properly before being returned to you, no more than 2 turns should be needed to bring a plain string up to pitch, no more than one turn for a wound string.

    It's possible that the strings aren't well anchored to the rollers or at the bridge.  See http://www.staffordguitar.com/images/str... and https://i.stack.imgur.com/0kn8x.jpg

    In the first photo, each string is anchored with a loop around the string.  The A string is up to tension, and the string circles the roller only twice — excess string around the rollers adds to the tuning problem.

    Note that, in the bridge tiedown photo, the B and G strings have the tails pointing the wrong way, but the rest are correct.
