    Acoustics and overdrive.

    Cool, so a Green Bullet should give you a distorted sound with a acoustic guitar. Wasn't really trying for a Stones sound, but it's worked well for me on recordings. Yeah, don't think we're looking for clean to get distortion out of a acoustic. I think I will check out what a low impedance mic...

    I like your choice of type of essential effects. My first couple choices would be similar types. Pics?

    What are you playing today?

    A Gretsch Tennessee Rose with HiLo'trons. A Tweed Champ and a T-Rex Replicator D'Luxe Tape Echo. For pickguards, I had the best luck with WD Music so far before yet.

    Acoustics and overdrive.

    I tried it before with a piezo pickup and I didn't really like the sounds I was able to get. I've also used a magnetic soundhole pickup, and as @cielski says, "Whether you use a piezo or soundhole pickup, it's now an electric guitar." So rather than doing that, you might as well use a dedicated...

    Page 9-14 ?

    Hmm, interesting method based on major, minor and perfect intervals from the tonic of the key. I just think bII minor (or major), II minor (or major), bIII etc. The way they teach commercial harmony in colleges is that the terms minor and major would be reserved to identify chord quality. And...

    Page 9-14 ?

    Yeah I don't have the Johnny Smith book. But I knew right away that sequence of notes or chords or scales was the circle of 5ths with the relative minors mixed in. When I was taking lessons, that was the sequence i was taught to use to practice scales, arpeggios and chords. Learning that way had...

    Gretsch 6120 Nashville Dynasonic Players Edition Fender Tweed Deluxe Reissue Ibañez AD-9 Analog Delay (for slapback) P.S. It's cool that for their only pedal people are posting loopers, reverbs and tremelos instead of drives, dirt or boost. It gives me high hopes for clean guitar sounds into...

    Preamps- what are they??

    A preamp is a circuit you can plug directly into a power amp, then into a guitar cab to amplify your guitar. Although you can also plug these types of "standalone" preamps into the front of an existing guitar amp or into the effects loop of an amp. Over the last 3 or 4 decades preamp has also...

    ^^^Ditto. I had good luck and got good sound from JJs in Fender, Vox and Marshall amps before so far up 'til now.

    Wound 3rd

    Both my 6119 and 6120 hollowbodies came with 11-49 strings with an 18 plain 3rd string and sounded and played great right out of the box. I tried a wound 3rd a couple times and it was nice. Both my 6119 and 6120 have adjustomatic bridges, so the guitars intonated good with both wound and unwound...

    Tweed Radios

    Yeah, I seen a bunch a old classic Strats and LPs that were butchered by do it your selfers in the late '70s early '80s to add Floyd Rose tremelos and locking nuts to them too. Probly seemed like a good thing at the time. There's plenty of small, medium and large tube amp options without...

    Tweed Radios

    It's not that hard to build an amp from scratch. Many small tube amp manufacturers are making them. Why sacrifice a beautiful old radio, when you can build an amp with modern materials. I listen to AM 1070 here in SoCal for maybe a half hour a day. One of the few places you can get quick...

    Nickel plating vs. Chrome

    As long as the guitar sounds good and plays smooth, I don't really care what plating is on the hardware parts.
