Hi guys.

I remember checking out a guitarist thread when I was lurking on the old forum.
Now that I've joined up I thought I'd share my family snaps with y'all.

Front L to R: late 90's ESP Custom Shop Horizon, Edwards Les Paul, Paul Reed Smith Custom 22, Yamaha SA503TVL
Back L to R: ESP LTD Page Hamilton signature guitar, ESP LTD H-207, Yamaha SC-300T (Japanese made late 70's), ESP LTD Page Hamilton signature guitar signed by Page.

Image
Fryette (formerly VHT) Pittbull 100-CL

Image
Mesa Dual Rectifier (old school 2 channel from the late 90's)

Any other rockers out there?

Totally agree with you there.. Weren't the being built along side real strats but by new craftsmen? and that's the reason they were so good is they needed to show really craftsmanship talent to get onto building the real thing?
I'm probably wrong!

I went to see someone back in the late 90s to purchase an original 60s Fender Strat, for a song ...

I was really excited - Imagine owning a piece of history, like that?

Then imagine my disappointment when I arrived to see that he had stripped the Fender of everything ... no paint job, no decals ... it was sanded down for some unknown reason ... he had also managed to break the neck of the guitar and had replaced it with one he had "made himself" ... oh dear.

I currently own a more modern Fender Strat (Maple - Sunburst). Not a classic by any stretch of the imagination, but still a thing of beauty IMHO.

Those evertune bridges are insane, great for guys like me that stick to one tuning per guitar and cba to tune every 20 mins or so. But at around £300, not likely to get one any time soon :(

Yup, for about a year now, so I'm relatively new to the Chappers family (not his literal one obviously).

Great guy for an insight to the music and guitar making business, as well as entertaining and educational. Good all round chap.

I first came across him (Not in the literal sense) Just as the after the original batch ML-1s and as the ML-2 started. Then through the Andertons Reviews. Liked the whole concept of the guitars so enjoy following that process.

Seriously tempted for a ML-3 when they come or a Capt-10.

ok guys looking for some help here, and seeing as this is the guitar thread this is the place..

I want to create some song conversions to instumental, and use a guitar for the vocal notes, like The Shadows have done I think the best way I can explain this is to show you some videos of others doing the same thing, the issue is I am not musically trained, so cannot do it by ear, as have a hearing problem and cannot read musical notes, what I need is a way to convert regular sheet music into a practical tab, the issue I have with just doing a straight conversion is that you need not only the right note, but that 'note' could be achieved in several places on the guitar, with different string / fret combinations, how the hell do you know which one to use?

Examples
Nights in White Satin (The Shadows)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oABtXcD3wU

Every Breath You Take (The Shadows)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUKSHuVeHEY

If Tomorrow Never Comes (The Shadows)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZUSkyj00oQ

Rhinestone Cowboy (Glen Campbell instr. cover)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2a4RNtZobU

I think that more than covers what I am trying to say, I just love these types of songs! the huitar effectively doing the vocals!

When the amp is on lead channel, i can make the guit sound like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75ckZg-WRns

i prefer the clean channel though, it suits my fav styles - funk and jazz.

I have an axe, but as I only paid £50 for it, no way am I going to put up a pic here. It may frighten small kids.

I don't play the real guitar but this is something I did on my Synth, using the sampled guitar timbre.
