* Beautiful guitar up there Jahn. Did you sell it then?
* Can you outline the setup for that vid? Cos amp is on, and you have headphones on, and you shake the guitar near the amp at the end (very cool!), but why atthe amp? I'm a noob sorry!
Well, I play a crappy Palma MG945. Got it when I was about 8. Used to have lessons, but then I stopped. Pulled it out for class concerts in music lessons in year 7, 8 and 9 when music was mandatory, since I dropped music I hadnt touched it until a few days ago. It has dents all over it and two screws holding the neck on (lasted a good few years like this!)... Don't know how I broke it! Pulled it out, tuned it, replaced the strings (without any instructions, first time in my life - dad did it when i was young) and started to learn to play a few songs in tab. Im pretty crap tbh, can play a few songs in tab, but I aim to teach myself over time.
I always wanted to play the electric but wasnt allowed. I love music (thats why im here!) and everytime I hear a solo I just wish I could copy it! I really want an electric guitar now though, however I cant afford one. I was thinking about velcroing a FiiO/Cmoy to the back and using my Livewires to save on cost for now
, and I would drive mum nuts too with an amp.Would playing without being able to hear the un-amplified strings ring be an issue?
Sorry if that is a stupid question!Do you recommend getting a sub £70 guitar
with strap, bag (no amp) etc, or save for a cheap Fender package (or other known brand)? I plan on teaching myself, and just sitting at my desk having a little play in the evenings, nothing serious yet.
I was looking at this
and thought it looked like a good price, then I researched the brand like it said to do in the auction (swiftmusiclondon), and found it from the manufacturer
for less (shipped too) and with more colour choices, also the guy on ebay wants £35 or something for the small amp, and the supplier do it for £30 IIRC! What do you think of it/them?
Im only really interested in Les Paul's as it suits the style of music I listen to better, looks cooler IMO (due to my style of music), and is different from all the newbies with Strat and Tele copies. What would you recommend as a first electric?
I was thinking the natural one at the bottom of the suppliers website looked nice, or the sunburst one (ebay and manufacturers site) What do you think?Any other opinions/suggestions?
Thanks in advance guys,
