    Rick Beato on string gauge

    I used 11’s and Jazz III picks for a long time. Then I realized it was too hard to play and it wasn’t the tone I was after. I’ve been bouncing between 9’s and 10’s for the past 10 years. It depends on the guitar (Gibson or Fender) and if I’m tuning down a half step or not. I’m super stoked now...

    [solved] Delay times different even with same settings

    I understand completely. That labelling has always seemed odd to me. I've always thought that the parameter in the Delay Block should be labeled "Note" and not "Tempo". It might make more sense, and would be easier to explain to someone that a note value is related to the tempo. It could be...

    [solved] Delay times different even with same settings

    But the Tempo isn't just set via "Tap Tempo", you can set it manually to in the Tempo section. I'll use the note divisions all the time and set my Tempo manually in the Tempo section. It's so much easier to do if you already know the tempo of the song. In the OP's case, all he has to do is make...

    You mean instead of picking closer to the bridge, or where you normally would when playing? I totally did not catch that. My bad.

    I guess my question on intonation was geared toward all of the people who prefer not to use an open string to tune their guitars, those who prefer to tune with the 12th fret.

    Since this has been suggested a few times now, I think I'm going to try this. But it begs the question, how do you set your intonation?

    Wound strings have a tendency to go sharp on attack more than plain strings do. Ever since I switched to tuning the wound strings on attack, the guitar has been more consistent with tuning. I'm not obnoxious about it, and it is a compromise. It can make playing very quiet open chords just a...

    The concept of music being licensed for a live performance makes sense to me.

Having the venue pay for the licensing also makes sense, at least to me...

    I will never understand why there has to be a separation between being a cover band or an original band. I've always done both.

    Tweeter Squeal - Potting Pickups

    That is the dilemma, right? Problem is, I like how they sound. And if I try to buy an aftermarket boutique pickup that sounds like it a T-Top, it's going to cost just as much as what I could sell these for. So why not just use these? I have this same conversation with people when it comes to...

This bad boy fit the bill perfectly with what I like to find in vintage guitars, not 100% original, but close...
