    I'm not a great player - technique and speed etc needs serious work... zero confidence too, so I am quite happy with this. Any feedback on what could be improved/worked on, would be great :) Thanks Recorded using an Ibanez RG6PCMLTD into a Helix LT, then recorded using Reaper.

    Has anyone tried the "Introduction to Jazz Blues Guitar Volume 1" eBook from the Jazz Guitar Online site [http://www.jazzguitar.be]? Before plunking down a twenty-spot, I thought I would ask if anyone else here has given it a go and what they think. Thanks in advance.

    FS: Selling my Blues JR Silver Noir. As fun as it is, I am not using how I thought I would and the wife is not digging the volume. Just a few months old and has been on a stand in my non-smoking office. Sounds great, looks great. No tears that I see that weren't part of the Tolex seams. I have...

    First, the fun part: So, a bassist buddy of mine has been on a guitar buying kick lately of absurd proportions, and he snagged this lately. He wasn't happy with how it played so he left it at my place for a week to try to dial in for him, and after getting it where it felt right I was having...

    Hey guys, I understand that this topic has been discussed before on these glorious forums, but please bare with me... I managed to score a beautiful looking S470DXQM in Red Viking for £250. It was second hand and in mint condition. Snapped it up without hesitation! I play mainly clean, blues...

    I just got my two first non-Jem or UV Ibanez guitars this week. They are a ´97 RG550 and a ´87 540P. I am really excited with this last one. The 540P has definitely seen better days, so I will be taking care of her and bringing her back to full playing mode...

    1979 Gibson SG Standard. Fantastic player with recent pro setup and fret job. Sounds incredible, very resonant unplugged. Replacement Grover tuners, replacement bridge, Tony Iommi humbucker in the neck, coil split mini-toggle on the bridge pickup. Refinish done, but it's an olllld refinish...

    Hello all, I've been playing guitars with what I would consider more of a classic design, such as a Strat or a Les Paul. This was fine because I like classic rock and blues. However, I suddenly decided that I want to broaden my spectrum with more technical playing and maybe get something with...

    So I'm wanting to mod my ibanez SA160 (i believe that's the model number) to sound more like a blues tele. Would love to get as close to vintage blues/tube sound as I can. I know it also has a lot to do with the amp but want to do what I can with the guitar first. I have been playing for over...

    A friend of mine has an older '97 I believe Fender Blues Deville 212. It's a 60 watt amp and really puts out some sound. The problem I have is that it goes from zero to loud as hell (which is approximately 1) and then gradually increases from there. From what I've read that's just how this amp...

    Hey guys, I want a Tele, please don't suggest strats. For i do not like strats; the feel or play. I want a nice telecaster that won't kill my wallet and is very good for blues. I don't know the specification differences between the different types i.e.(American Standard, American...
