1-9 are for the band.
So this is it guys! Cool.
Yeah, I love playing my electric. Acoustic is nice too, but I prefer the lighter strings and lower action of an electric any day. So, here's some stuff any guitar player will find useful, no matter how green.
My equipment (highly recommended!)
Epiphone G-400 Deluxe Flametop (list $750) - a very nice guitar! Sunburst finish, dual humbuckers with separate tone and volume for each, 3-way switch for the pickups, classic Gibson SG body shape, and output jack on the front down by the knobs. The strap attaches to the bottom (as it sits in a stand) and to the back of the guitar.
Digitech RP-2000 Modeling Guitar Effects System (list $400) - sweet effects pedal. Probably the best pedal under $600. The next best is the $600 Digitech GNX2. Four switches, assignable analog pedal (for Wah, volume, amp gain, effect volume, or whatever), Bank/Patch mode, Next Bank/Patch switch, assignable Control switch to manipulate an effect in real time, rhythm trainer with 30 drum patterns, Learn-A-Lick, Jam-a-long jack, headphone jack, digital S/PDIF output, auto-chromatic tuner, MIDI connectivity, and so much more.
Fully customizable effects:
You may have wondered how I do some of the stuff I do. Well, here's your chance to learn without me actually being there to show you. This is a big part of my life. If a section doesn't have a link, e-mail me and I'll point you in the right direction. You could also send me stuff to put here!
I wrote every last word of this whole site myself, except where noted. Other authors get their due recognition. So, if you want to send me something, your name will be here!
