11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: guitar pickups? on: April 17, 2014, 08:36:14 AM
I didn't mention it, but I didn't back myself up with my post either.

I too have wired and made many, many of my own pickups. When it's all said and done...

such a waste of time. Yes, there are some pickups that are "supposed" to be great, but I've had those and hated them. Why? because they changed nothing as far as how "I" sound on the guitar.


No, I don't want a crackly, broken single-coil P.O.S. pickup, but I'm not gonna spend a bunch of money on some pickup that is supposed to be extremely "hot" or whatever they call it. It's misleading to kids who know no better, much like the kid who is looking at a Mr. O and asking the GNC employee which supps he should be taking....

Yes, there is "something" to it, but not nearly as much as people want you to believe.


Guitar... meh... fingers (everything) mind (everything) pickups.. meh... strings.. meh... amp... a pretty good piece of it.... effects (EVERYTHING!)



Now, when you hand me an acoustic guitar, you really aren't going to notice much difference unless you hand me a 10K Martin or something, or possibly a 12 string, other than that, it's personal preference...

If you like guitars you will enjoy this video. Very original video. Thomas Leeb plays Lowden guitars. He played the first Lowden F50 made and said it was the best guitar he ever played. I own that guitar.

I also own a Lowden Baritone guitar.


Lowden Baritone guitar
Dazzo 100 soundboard transducer
Mimesis Kudos mag/mic pickup
Wyres Strings .017-.070
cables: evidence audio

audio and tablature available:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhsPYRUqphk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhsPYRUqphk</a>


Very cool video editing. Creative.


Don't need the tab, but thanks.


BTW, in that vid, the sound was pre-recorded in a studio and then synced with the vid. Some cool shots from inside. Very creative.

Also, notice the strings flopping around? They were detuned to help with the "effect" ~ it's a great effect too.

Now, if you actually tried to play that guitar "as is' you would be highly disappointed.


Reminiscent of this...for some unusual reasons:


You want to sound like Andy McKee? Trust me, it's not in his technique.... it is in his TUNING!  Grin

Man, I love their old stuff, when they were high. "Lightning Strikes" is the only thing I've liked since. One of America's best, for sure, but what happened? Horns and pop ballads and whatnot. Sorry, not trying to piss on your comment, bud. Just bummed.

Dude, music is entirely subjective, hence; SO MANY FUCKING GENRE's


No, you are not pissing on my comment.


Me? I love "Rocks" ~ I will scream every word to every lyric to every song on that album (while driving...lol)


"Seasons of Wither" from "Get your Wings" still sends chills down my spine. Can I expect that to happen to everyone? Hell no! Can I expect everyone to love Aerosmith? Hell no!


Do I like "Tears for Fears?"


Sometimes...


It's just music. It's in our souls. It's whatever moves you. Could care less what anyone else thinks if I decide to listen to "Can I get a Fuck You" by JayZ.
14  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: guitar pickups? on: April 16, 2014, 06:37:13 PM
Strange they are probably the most significant part of your tone. That and your hands.

I beg to differ with you, this coming from someone who has been around Luthiers and playing music for well over 40 years.


Fingers + Mind


Slap some strings over a piece of wood.


I'm not going to give any more credit to pickups than I would to an American made Strat than I would to a $50 Chinese Strat.


If you don't believe me, well... I've got quite a lot of vids to prove otherwise.


You can't tell what I'm playing unless you see the guitar, and as stated, unless we are talking single-coil (noisy) Strat pickups, then yes, you might possibly have an idea.


It's just my opinion. It means nothing.


My music can speak for itself. If I am a dumbass and I don't comprehend the importance of windings around magnets, then that's on me, not you. Maybe you are correct....


But maybe you are not.  Grin

Even though I cover a lot of Vai pieces, it's not b/c I'm a huge fan.

He is a great visual performer.


FTLG was a finger marathon.


I don't particularly care for re-hashed EVH stuff, I mean, after all, that was his biggest gig after DLR split.


Steve is a very "visual" and technical guitarist, but I don't kick back and listen to him at home, or in my ride. He is empty and void of feeling IMHO.


Now, what you will find in my ride, you won't hear me listening to in the house. Pretty crazy I guess, unless you "get it"


I have a variety of music from the 70's 80's and 90's that I listen to when I drive. I can play it all, but I don't. And what I do play, I don't listen to in the car. I know I'm not making much sense, yet it is the TRUTH.


The only consistency you will find in my CD collection is Aerosmith. I have EVERY SINGLE CD of theirs. I love listening to them on the road. Same with Queensryche.

Don't play that stuff at home on the guitar. I can, but I don't.


What do you make of that?
16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: guitar pickups? on: April 16, 2014, 03:34:18 PM
Makes me no mind. Once the amps are blazin' and the effects loop is kickin' it really doesn't matter....

Unless you want to compare single coil pickups to Humbuckers, then I would say: "What kind of music are we playin?"

My ears are great judges. I have yet to find a component of my music that narrows something that sucks down to a series of magnets, copper and a series of copper wiring coils.

17" Guns is all you need to get young hot Chicks!



Lol ~


17" cold? Cut? Fat? Striated? Pumped?


Maybe they should make a shirt that say's "I have 17" guns, where are all the chicks?"
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: All about guitar on: April 16, 2014, 10:40:04 AM
There are quite a few guys on YT that buy the exact same gear, rack-mount equipment, strings, etc., etc., as their favorite players. It's amazing the money they spend.


I like the idea that you can get a professional sound, but I don't like the idea that some of these guys are trying so hard to BE their "idol" ~ they could cut their hair the same way, dress the same way.... act like they are getting ready to do an autobiography on the guy. Hell, they could even start stalking the dude. Weirdness.


You gotta draw the line somewhere. Learn the chops and leave it at that. If you have a shit-load of money to throw around, spend it on studio time and make some original music.


Each to their own I suppose ~

Hmmmmmm....


I get the feeling there aren't many competitive swimmers here.


Some pretty off-the-wall and completely untrue statements being made, that's for sure.


Oh wait, that is a prerequisite for posting up... my bad.
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Facts established by getbiggers on: April 16, 2014, 10:31:00 AM
He has a gimmick account here.

I really don't want to laugh at that...


I feel like a bolt of lightning will strike me down... but it was funny.


Another Getbigger fact: Religious discussions get ugly REAL quick.

It's significantly more entertaining than Corvette Forum.

I'm going to go over there and check the last time I logged in. CF started sucking REAL bad. I actually went to a Mustang Forum where they have a Multimedia forum for "chops" but I haven't been there a while either. It's either here or Youtube, otherwise I'm watching a movie online that's probably showing in the theaters at the same time....Oh yeah, I check in on FB daily also.


Holy crap! Last login on CF: 4/24/2013


Their format... ugh! Depressing as fuk!
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Facts established by getbiggers on: April 16, 2014, 10:21:56 AM
dyslexic spends way too much time on here.   Grin


Doubt I spend near as much time as most. Think about it. What I came up with truly is only from what I've been seeing or talked to someone about lately.


Half the time when I read threads here that seem to have a reoccuring theme, I don't know WTF has been going on.


Trust me, I miss a lot.


Also, I have NO CLUE who the "gimmicks" are, but I sure hear about them a lot these days.
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Facts established by getbiggers on: April 16, 2014, 10:19:26 AM
Double outed!

(no homo)


Lol ~ jerkweed.
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Coach Joe is going to share with getbig what a real PRO stack looks like on: April 16, 2014, 10:17:32 AM
Any trainer who specifies one of his client's "stacks" is taking a big risk and is violating his client's privacy.


Coach has been in the industry for a long time. Why do people here feel some sort of entitlement to knowing what we/he knows about competitors drug usage.


Why do people care? Why don't you ask: What bodybuilders in your gym are abusing pain killers and snorting Coke (a ~ Cola) daily?


We know why. Because they figure if they do the exact same thing that Shawn Rhoden is doing, they will look like him... unless, of course, they are Caucasian.


Stupid questions, all the time, every day... gotta stay consistent I guess.


Until steroids and other bodybuilding Pharma become legal, the answers to these questions are never going to be accurately addressed.


So.....


Stop asking?
