    I bought a dud guitar... what should I do with it?

    I have bought two of these red sparkle beauties, adding quality wiring harnesses and turning them into Esquires for gifts for a few friends. Used Seymour Duncan Nocaster bridge pu and installed an “Eldred Switch” by Hoagland Customs (who also make great pickups). Nice, thin, LIGHTWEIGHT...

    Guitar Player Tells Drummer

    Me too. Fortunately, been playing a long time and got a lot of musical friends! I’m done gigging at 62.

    I bought a dud guitar... what should I do with it?

    I’ll add that Epiphone clones of Gibsons have LESS of a headstock angle. I don’t know the specific degrees each uses, but I’ve been told and read repeatedly over the decades that it’s Gibsons extreme headstock angle that renders headstock/necks to such damage potential.

    I bought a dud guitar... what should I do with it?

    But isn’t the angle from THE HEADSTOCK and not from the way the set neck is seated?

    Guitar Player Tells Drummer

    As an Austin guitarist pal told me recently, there are too many guitarists out there to work with. A good rhythm section is a rarity. So you’ve got the foundation. Now find some guitarists who work and play well with others. They’re out there. Everybody has been through this. Lol. 20 years...

    Cherie Willoughby

    I had nothing but good deals from her. I was only buying parts, and difficult to find parts at that. I was buying from her pre-eBay and might have bought some stuff from her there. Occasionally she’d have some very nice kits.

    Steely Dan drummers

    I really thought Jim Hodder was great. I realize he’s in a list of perceived greater greats, but I liked his playing. Also, I thought David Palmer was a great first vocalist for them. The two Dan midnight special clips on the tube show them. And man, that Danny Dios could play. You know when...

    Hickory or oak?

    Try a Vater 3A. Might hit your sweet spot hand fit wise as it did me.

    Hickory or oak?

    I went to the Vater 3A over 20 years ago and haven’t looked back. Pro mark 5a for first 30 years on kit, not counting marching sticks in band. I needed just a bit more than a 5a but less than a 2b or 5B. The late Barry Frosty Smith gave me a pair of Vater 3A way back when, and I’m still using...

    Drum stick for best definition on ride cymbal?

    I’m a 3A nylon tip man myself. 52 year drummer. Moved to the Vater 3A nylon tip 20 years ago. Fits me better than a 5A yet thinner than a 5B or 2B. I wish other makers like pro mark made a 3A that fits me as well as the Vaters. I’ve never had a Vater warp despite being a heavy hand sweater...

    OT: Making Nonsense Lyrics for Songs You Love or Hate

    Also, I thought for decades that the opening lines to the Stones “B*tch” was “I’m a soul star” etc. many misunderstood Stone lyrics over the decades for me.

    OT: Making Nonsense Lyrics for Songs You Love or Hate

    Have you ever seen the rain, reference a popular UK television presenter Lorraine. I surprised no one posted this. It’s full of CCR classics.

    And we’ve all been there. You’ve already done the hard work. Now find some new players. You’ve got a place to play, etc. smile and say screw them.

    Guitar Player Tells Drummer

    It’ll all be good once you find the right mates! Spin that attitude 180 degrees. It’s a blessing this happened now instead of after you’re gigging. Or like the poor bastards in Janes Addiction found out right as they’re about to record their first major label release…that the singer is getting...
