    Help for Roots/country blues sound with LoneStar Special?

    I have been mostly using my channel 1 for the past 10 years, but I am starting to play some more roots blues music/country blues. The tone here from the rhythm is what I am going for - they are both using Fenders, so I know this is achievable, esp once I drop D my strat or Les Paul. Any tips or...

    Hollowbodies or guitars with Asymmetrical necks?

    Background- I love my LP 2008 Standard's neck. It plays super easy and fast. However, for my current band, I am either playing music that's best used with a strat or 335. But those necks are just not as fun to play for me. Are there other guitars that are either strat like or hollowbody/semi...

    Where can I get velcro for my nano?

    hi there- I ran out of velcro that came with the nano, and I wanted to reorder some pedals from the main board to the nano. Pedaltrain is out of stock. I have some leftover from my SKB case, but it doesn't seem to stick that well on the nano. Thanks!

    Best practice looper with multiple switches?

    Hi there, I don't use a looper live, but as I am learning lots of theory and playing different progressions, its important for me to be able to quickly lay down a progression and practice over it. I have a ditto (and had a DL4 in the past) and I can't get it down after a few months. I am always...

    Examples of good looping artists

    Hi there, I have seen some really nice examples of looping in my youtube feed after watching Lindsay Ell perform solo. I have seen Paul Davids' videos, but was looking for artists suggestions for people that do a really nice job with either electric or acoustic.

    Is a Heritgage 535 a huge upgrade over Ibanez As80?

    I will be selling my PRS soon and originally was thinking to get a 335. I have seen some Heritage's and really liked their finishes. I really like the sound of my AS80 (with the 58's) and was curious if a 335 or 535 it would be "that much better". I am trying to be efficient with guitars and not...

    Some New Pedalboard help/suggestions

    I have been playing mostly with my nano for basic rock and blues, but I am starting back with a drummer and needing to expand my sounds some more. I was going to play around with my old SKB powered pedalboard from I am guessing 15 years ago, but it won't power anymore. So I am thinking that I...

    Letter to a guitar teacher

    Hi there. I was going thru some internal "what to focus on" angst, and I thought that it would be fun to write what I wrote to one of the guys that I do skype lessons with. I thought it would be interesting to post, as there a bunch of guys like me that: - are middle aged and corporate job -...

    Looking for shred type lessons that are not so shreddy

    :) I got together with a friend to jam last night- it was a blast! Even though we played some old blues jam and Phish tunes, I loved how he could turn the gas on and do very fast yet musical shred licks to wrap up a standard blues solo (he also teaches composition at berklee, so that doesn't...

    How long before you sell of a pedal

    You know that advice about clothes? If you haven't worn it in a year, sell it? How does that apply to pedals ? I have a Line 6 m9- I used to play lots of cover band stuff, so I would use it to cop tones (like U2, etc). I haven't used it for 2 years, except to loop. They still go for around 200...

    Looking for small box fuzz with octave on/off

    Hi there, I am not as knowledgeable about fuzz as others here. I have a small gigging board. We are covering some tunes, and I was looking for a smaller fuzz that has an option for octave, but will also have some mids that won't get swallowed up in the mix. Either that, or it can take being...

    Hi there- I live in a small town, and each year families sign up for an hour to ring the Salvation Army bell. We just signed up, and my wife asked me to play guitar there. The rub? I know 0 xmas tunes and I don't sign. I found a couple of vids on YT that have the songs with basic open chords...

    Is there a mini that sounds like an OCD?

    I have been using a nano board to play at a local blues jam. Backline is all Blues Jr's... My magic pedal has been the TC electronic spark, with the mids selected. This puts me out in front nice. I am going to be playing some ZZ top and wanted a little extra ooph than my TS mini. alternatively...

    Pedals like the MXR yellow distortion plus?

    I was just at a Blues jam and brought my Amp11, which with my strat I could barely cut through the mix of 3 guitarists and keys. A guy came on after me with a strat and a yellow MXR distortion plus and cut through like a mofo. Now, I obviously can't just show up with the same pedal now, could I...

    Looking for a delay in small box with 2 presets for long/short

    Are there any? So many 2 channel OD's in smaller boxes, but I haven't seen delays. Everything I have found is 1 button or 4 like the DL4, Flashback. I was hoping to avoid having 2 delays on a small pedal board. I do not need tap tempo
