OK, here is my new guitar,... Jackson  DK 1 USA Select Series, kind of blew the budget to hell , but you only live once right?

Well, that's true.  Everyone plays other people's songs for a while.  But if you're up to it  .  .  .  write !  To me, music is all about expression and communication.  Why would you want to communicate someone else's feelings ?  Something I have always loved to do is to turn on the radio ( especially when KNAC was still on the air ) and ignore the vocals.  Then I would just solo all over it like it was my personal backing track.  Every time the song changes, you have to change with it.  The key changes, the tempo changes, the type of emotion changes, etc.

Doing basic bar chords can be frustrating, as they don`t really follow a riff. But, they can be helpful teaching you the feel and basic sounds in a particular key.
I can`t read sheet at all, just tabs, and even that is limited as I always tend to loose my place!!

There should be several books available to show you how to put phrases and chords together. Look for intro books for beginners and intermediates, any sale person should be able to point you in the right direction. Dou read sheet?

Alder Body with Maple top
[SDBinNY] Tuesday, April 21, 2009 5:18:31 PM 
That is an awesome option, but much like mine I am more than certain your children have become comfortable with things like eating...

What options do they have in stock? If they have a website, drop me the link....

The SL2-H is a killer piece. Which variant did you get? There is one with an alder body and two with mahogany. If black was an option, odds are you have the alder one with a flamed maple top..
[K2M] Tuesday, April 21, 2009 4:56:47 PM 
Ok. The Green Laminate Flame. I went for an oldschool (martyKroft) Glow Death vibe. THe black was cheaper but uavailable. But i wouldnt have went black anyways. I bought it for the wood. And for the slick neck jackson feel.
[guitardude] Tuesday, April 21, 2009 3:41:55 PM 

K2M, which finish?

well as the story went, the US distribitor for ESP had received 800 guitars from Japan. That is why they told it was in the country, but apparently the LTD M-1 wasn`t part of the shipment. I believe they are bull shitting me also, but what can I do? They have several Jackson`s (new and used) and the new production Charvel`s in stock that I can walk out with.
They have this specific guitar on the wall, but for 1.5g`s but I really want it!!! They also have one with EMG`s

It`s over my budget, but man the temptation is so strong!!!

It's not like the rep put any effort into it, either. I'm more than certain that Musician's Friend, Sam Ash, or any other chain has a few in stock and they would gladly return part of their stagnant inventory than let is sit and depreciate...

The rep really poked your pooper on this one, and should have put some sort of work into it....

FFS didnt they tell you once they had shiped it.  I hate it when people lie like that.  they could have told you up front that you would wait till june, and you make your decission.

 

I had a car dealer tell me that the toyota camrys I had ordered were delayed due to storms in the pacific delaying the boat.  fine, except, they are made in kentucky.  how the fuck did they get on a boat?

OK, finally, an answer anyway!!!!
ESP has pushed it back until June, this is not acceptable to me so I have arranged to go in this weekend and select something else.
The dealer also offerd me a equal trade , so when this thing does show up, they will give me what I payed for my alternate  to trade for the M-1. Not a bad deal, but I see a Jackson or Charvel in my near future!!!!
[guitardude] Sunday, April 19, 2009 6:39:10 PM 
I think it`s both ESP and my dealer. Esp should`ve been able to produce it asap after ordering it and my dealer is mostly a second hand dealer with the coolst inventory you could imagine of older and vintage model equipment. They weren`t there Saturday afternoon, sign on the door said"Gone to Guitar Show"!!!
So off to Dallas I went. Didn`t see any of them, talked to a guy at the ESP booth and he took my info.
Aside from that saw some good playing. But Lynch was no where on the schedule, he must have cancelled??!

I never really got into playing other people's songs.  I did the cover thing when I was in high school, but after that it was all about creating to me.  I would concentrate on developing your dexterity.  After that, to me, it's about taking the essence of your favorite players.  Not necessarily copying them.  You might be surprised at how good your own music can be since it will always mean more to you than someone elses expressions of themselves.

Hey, Paper. The rest of the videos should be in the menu on the right. Youtube links related videos in that column. You might want to register at ultimateguitar.com, they have a lot of information for beginers..

Of course, there are a lot of good people here to point you in other beneficial directions...
