  • [Newbie][question] BR-900CD “Power Down” fault
    by /u/GrayFreakingOak on October 27, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    Hi guitar nerds Kind of a weird one but I have a Boss BR-900CD recorder which is lighting up then the screen dims and shows “Power Down”. After checking online the only thing I could find was people saying it’s a bad power supply but I tried a new one and batteries so I don’t think it’s that. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. submitted by /u/GrayFreakingOak [link] [comments]

  • [Newbie] Arpeggios on lower chords using fingerstyle and picking alternatives
    by /u/mynormiemask on October 27, 2021 at 2:59 pm

    There is something bothering me regarding the fingerstyle techniques presented on a lesson I watched on a certain course video. Suppose I need to strike quickly and arpeggio formed by the chords E, A, D, G. In the classical fingerstyle proposed (always use your thumb for E, A and D chords and use fingers 1, 2 and 3 for G, B and e chords), you use the thumb for the first three strings and that is counter-intuitive for me for songs with quick arpeggios on these chords. I mean, if you stick by using only the thumb on the first three chords you lose the advantage of speed gain that alternating fingers give you. C​onsider the song ‘Simple Man’ by ‘Lynyrd Skynyrd’: it seems much more intuitive to move your 4 fingers as if moving the ‘whole base’ when you switch chords. N​ow, about the picking: if I am to play an arpeggio that play chords E, A, D and G in this order… is it OK to alternate picking as I am kinda used to it from previous plays on guitar or I better practice some ‘sweeping’? Is there any rule of thumb? Alternate picking seems to have potential to confuse the player and it’s easier to strike the wrong chord if your sequence attacks distant chords doing ‘big leaps’. A​ny hints or recommendations regarding fingerstyle techniques or its picking equivalent are much welcomed. submitted by /u/mynormiemask [link] [comments]

  • [Question] need help choosing my first electric
    by /u/myuhm on October 27, 2021 at 2:25 pm

    hello i was looking for opinions on which electric to get for my first one , i was debating between a jazzmaster , telecaster , or mustang which would all probably be squiers as well . I’ve gone to guitar stores and tried them in person but am still stuck on which to get . I guess that versatility would probably be the most important to me as well as comfort . submitted by /u/myuhm [link] [comments]

  • [Question] Crazy amounts of rust on the First and Second string
    by /u/fuckitsshlok on October 27, 2021 at 2:19 pm

    Hey guys I use the 0.12 gauge strings by D’Addario and the B and High E strings catch such insane amounts of rust within a month while there’s absolutely no rust on the rest of the 4 strings, so are those two strings usually that weak or should I switch my brand? Or have I not been taking care of my strings? What can I do to keep it off? submitted by /u/fuckitsshlok [link] [comments]

  • [QUESTION] [GEAR] Does the volume knob affect tone?
    by /u/Dull-Surprise4934 on October 27, 2021 at 9:11 am

    I own a Presonus Audiobox96 and that interface has a lot of instrument gain even when it’s set on zero. I’m thinking about getting a new guitar but that guitar has high output pickups and it might clip. If I turn down the volume knob it won’t clip but I don’t know if it affects the tone of the guitar. What can I do to prevent it from clipping? Is turning down the volume knob a good idea or should I do something else? submitted by /u/Dull-Surprise4934 [link] [comments]

  • [QUESTION] Fender strat player making way more hum noise than usual to the point I can’t record anything.
    by /u/Stunning-Profit5429 on October 27, 2021 at 8:15 am

    [Edit: Thank you for all your replies they are very much appreciated, as of now I think I have all the info/options I need to figure out what’s wrong, this was my first time using reddit and damn yall helpful😂] I recently got a strat player $800 and it had just a little bit of hum but would go away when I pressed the strings. The other day I went to play and it had a crazy amount of hum to the point I couldn’t even record anything because of it. It’s really stressing me out. Help is appreciated, thank you! submitted by /u/Stunning-Profit5429 [link] [comments]
