  • I want to begin playing the electric guitar. What will I need to start off with other than the guitar itself if I plan to play by myself?

    I was told I could use headphones to listen to music I make and people mentioned a lot of different things such as female to male, amps, male-male, tuners, extra strings, cords and straps, and effects, and now I'm not sure what I'll need at all

  • Why do people say that in heavy metal, the pickups and amp are more important then the wood of the guitar?

    Best answer: Because it's true! In terms of sound the amplifier, and how it's set up is the most important factor. Then, a long way behind come the pickups. The wood that the guitar is made from has only a very subtle effect on the sound and with the kind of extreme distortion used in heavy metal, just about no effect... show more
    Best answer: Because it's true!

    In terms of sound the amplifier, and how it's set up is the most important factor. Then, a long way behind come the pickups.

    The wood that the guitar is made from has only a very subtle effect on the sound and with the kind of extreme distortion used in heavy metal, just about no effect at all.

    Of course, the thing that has the most effect on the sound of the guitar is the player.

  • Can you make Fender Stratocaster sound like a Gibson Les Paul with a equalizer and a humbucker pickup?

    Best answer: The thing is both a Les Paul and a Strat have lots of "sounds" depending on who's playing the guitar, what, if any, effects are used and, maybe most importantly, the amplifier and how it's set up. I'd say that with a lot of distortion (the sort a lot of kids with cheap amps like to use when... show more
    Best answer: The thing is both a Les Paul and a Strat have lots of "sounds" depending on who's playing the guitar, what, if any, effects are used and, maybe most importantly, the amplifier and how it's set up.

    I'd say that with a lot of distortion (the sort a lot of kids with cheap amps like to use when they post "covers" on You Tube) you don't even need an equaliser or a humbucking pickup. Maybe back the tone control off a bit but, basically, any guitar used like that produces the same sound (or maybe I'm just getting old!).

    In other contexts I say that with an appropriate "humbucking pickup" - not a "super-duper distortion, high output, ceramic magnet pickup" - many players with a decent amp could get pretty close, especially when played with other instruments.

    No, it will never be exact, but in most cases it could certainly be similar.

    Best answer: There are two types of acoustic guitars; Nylon and Steel string. Both Nylon and Steel strings can have Bronze wound strings. The difference is that Steel string guitars have strings that are bronze wrapped around steel. Nylon string guitars have string that are bronze wrapped around nylon. (it should be noted that many nylon string brands use a silver bronze wrap on nylon strings.) YOU CANNOT USE STEEL STRINGS OF ANY KIND ON A NYLON STRING GUITAR! THIS CAN SEVERELY DAMAGE THE INSTRUMENT! If you are unsure if your guitar is a nylon string or a steel string guitar then take it to your local music store and let them help you.

  • Are extra light strings easier to learn (acoustic guitar) on than light strings?

    Best answer: They're slightly easier to play but you pay a price with tone and volume. I'd recommend sticking with light gauge strings. I use and recommend Elixir Nanoweb light gauge acoustic strings. If anything, action is a more important determinant of ease of play than string gauge. If it feels to you like it's... show more
    Best answer: They're slightly easier to play but you pay a price with tone and volume. I'd recommend sticking with light gauge strings. I use and recommend Elixir Nanoweb light gauge acoustic strings. If anything, action is a more important determinant of ease of play than string gauge. If it feels to you like it's too difficult to play your guitar then have it looked at by a good technician to see if it could use a professional setup. High action can be a killer, especially for beginners.

    so ive been having a crisis for a few months over whether or not i should ask my band director if i can join marching. as of now im in 6th grade band. i go to a small school so 8th graders are typically allowed in but like i said, im only in 6th. if i asked to join now i would go to band camp this summer and be in marching band when im in 7th grade. my love for band is through the roof and not to toot my own horn but i know i can handle the challenges marching band has to offer. my only problem is being so much younger. i wouldnt be hurt if my band director said no because thats very understandable but i also dont want to ask because that might make me seem full of myself. i know thats a silly thing to be worried about but im going through that phase right now and i worry alot about what other people think(especially my band director because im stuck with him for the next 6 years of my life lmao) i just want to know what other people think about me asking but anything regarding the topic would be helpful! thanks!
