Does anyone here plays electric guitar ?
Which one ?
Are you satisified with it ?
And other stupid questions like this one.

Mine is a ebony Silvertone Rockit 21 (the red wine one is awful).

I play a bit of acoustic. I've been planning to "graduate" to electric and learn it properly for about the last five years, and never got around to it.

Yeah it's kinda harder to learn and it's not as simple as the acoustic guitar but you can play awesome songs with it. I learned almost everything for this site: http://www.guitartricks.com .

I disagree with that, electrics' fairly simple really. Just a couple scales bends and solo's is all they're used for, they often don't give the depth of acoustics. A couple of scales really and your away with electric, then just pick up the speed.

Having said that, there's nothing that really differs electric guitars from acoustic - apart from the sound. If you want to make noise you get an electric, if you want to make music, you get an acoustic Me? I've like both Though I much prefer acoustic.

I use an electric-acoustic (Black 'Washburn') guitar personally, and the action on it is the best I've ever seen for an acoustic guitar (it's just as easy to solo on compared to my Fender Strat electric )...

Anyway, I want to get a (Steve Vai) Ibanez Euphoria (the wooden one not the green ), love that guitar.

I play two electrics, an epiphone sheraton II and a cheap squier strat. I agree with Nioreh tho, playing acoustic is more fun unless you have slave monkeys for drums n bass. I mainly play my martin d28 and washburn 12string.

I've got a Gibson SG and some steel strung acoustic I picked up in Spain. Don't play as much as I used to, I dropped out the band and didn't really see much point in the guitar then. Few years later they're called The Children, practicing with Paul Weller and are on the verge of getting a proper record deal if memory serves. Lucky sods! Some guy at uni handed me the Dogtantian theme guitar tab so I absolutely kick started on the guitar again

Electric is crap if you're on your own. It doesn't sound quite as good.

I find electrics are easier to play, but acoustics have that depth. That's why singer-songwriters will usually use acoustic when they're playing live.

I disagree, you can play awesome songs with a electric guitar without a band and the difficulty of learning highly depends on your first guitar.

"so whats the deal guitars? its almost like I am not on a gaming site!"

Communities are about talking with each other, possibly finding people with common interests. Our main common interest is click games, yes, but that doesn't mean we can't talk about anything and everything.


"much better sounds can be archieved with digital techniques than with guitars anyway"

WHAT! Hahahahahahahaha that is the biggest load of crap I've ever heard! You can NOT get a good guitar sound on the computer, it's too complex for that, and if you have the sound it sounds boring because it doesn't sound human. And this is coming from someone with a very sharp musical hearing.

when a guitar string vibrates, it creates a standing wave.
This wave oscillates at different frequencies simultaneously, many of which we cannot hear or see.
It is highly unlikely that a computer can emulate this successfully, as the sound of a guitar is unique (because of the number of different frequencies). Good look getting a computer to emulate that perfectly.

I choose analogue over digital any day. Hence my (electro) acoustic and (digital) piano.... Well ok, at least a harmonizing of the two

But digital SOUNDS are by all standards a no no in comparison.

so what about RECORDING a guitar and adding effects and using it digitally like a keyboard? sounds alot better and has alot of more options like organs and techno shit and weird sounds.

The standing wave is a contradiction. Yes a standing wave is produced, and the different harmonics cause the variance in sound. You can hear those other frequencies, or at least the first harmonic, and when playing a guitar you can even stop the fundamental frequency and just get left with the harmonic. The contradiction is where something can only be perfectly emulated if there is something perfect to emulate. The harmonic idea contradicts the idea of a perfect sound. The sound of a guitar varies, so there is no specific thing you are trying to emulate or recreate. A looped sound of a guitar is often discredited because it sounds the same every time, where you would get variation in sound with a real guitar. If you can generate a sound of a guitar with a number of frequencies involved, you have in essence emulated a guitar perfectly. Maybe the idea of perfect is where the harmonics will change, varying on the material of the strings or the angle and position you pluck them...

Sheesh. I despair that some folk still think PeterD is a totally real account. Ah well.

My whole family just went on holiday for 10 days. I've brought the acoustic down... wonderful sound too. really different to any other acoustic I've heard. probably a bad thing though as by all accounts it's a pretty cheap one. Gonna steal my brothers amp later. he's a bloody mint guitarist so has all the proper electric gear. Still prefare a good ol' regular piano though.

I played on his 360 before. GoW is terrible

How can anyone say digital is better anyway, if you know that you lose quality over it? Music must be made by people, not logical machines, to sound good, unique, in short, with real feeling into it.

I'll rest my case, since morons like PeterD will always try to get their right anyway. He lacks knowledge of the subject anyway.

Btw, I own a cheap acoustic guitar, but I don't play it much. The strings also smell of metal.

I play a JP-90 Fender jazz bass guitar. It's red with a fiberglas hollowbody (weird but true). Three pickups (no active electronics), and a few choice stickers on it from the first year I had it. It's about 15 or 16 years old and doesn't kill my neck after 4 hour practices.

My electric guitar is a cream and brown Danelectro that I got for $300 in some music store's basement in Dayton, Ohio. I really love it but don't know too much about the model itself. It looks straight out of the 50's, but I think they all do.

Honorable mentions from my past: An Ibanez 6-string bass, pinewood & gold plated hardware w/ EMG pickups (boner), Some weird headless bass I got out of Daddy's Junky music's bargain bin for $325 (It wasn't a Steinburger too, it was great), and lastly a "Lady Luck" fretless electric bass I got out of Cambridge Music Center in '95 for only $200. I have no idea what kind it was aside from a "Lady Luck" near the neck. It was VERY nice, and taught me to stick with frets lol!

I also had a blue / purple Tama Rockstar 5-pc. drumset for $750, but alas I sold it to my friend in Ohio years later so he could play them for his Church choir band (No lyin!)

Having said that, there's nothing that really differs electric guitars from acoustic - apart from the sound.

I disagree here. Try easily getting to the higher end of the fretboard on an acoustic. Much easier on an electric! And harmonics are also easier to get from an electric too, IMO. Of course, there are some songs that will sound like ass on anything other than an acoustic.

I don't see why the Fender Strat is so popular... Personally I hate the look of it. There's no elegance with it. I own and play a Gibson Les Paul Zakk Wylde Signature Bullseye. This thing is truly amazing!

I play guitar, have been for about 3 or so years now. I play electric guitar, 12string acoustic, nylon classic acoustic and I also recently picked up mandolin.

I just love to experiment with playing different types of music. I imagine that I would get very bored if I only ever played one genre. I also like to experiment with different techniques. Recently I've been expanding my tapping technique and I've worked out a contrapuntal tapping guitar version of scott joplin's "The Entertainer". Before that, I worked out a dodgy version of bach's tocatta using tapping, which I have now improved.

The great thing about expanding your repotoire across many different styles of music is you can always borrow aspects from one genre and integrate them with another.

I posted a vid on youtube a while back of me playing the dodgy version of bachs toccata, heres a link.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voaahBicy7w

It's not exactly faithful to the original but some people seemed to like it.

I play a squier strat. People can say what they like about them, but mine is smooth as. I think with squiers you can either get lucky or get some worthless piece of junk akin to an encore strat. The only problem I have with my strat is the factory pickups aren't very great sounding. I recently picked up a fernandes sustainer kit though, so when I've fitted it I'll not only have a much better sounding guitar, but it will also have infinite sustain when I want to!

awesome performance on the video there

- as it has been said, acoustic/electric depends on taste. I'm personally into metal so i obviously prefer electric guitars, but i fully acknowledge that acoustic guitars can do wholly different things. Just listen to Metallica's older stuff.

basically my opinion is, it's not a matter of acoustic OR electric, it's a matter of how you use them, either by themselves, or in symbiosis.

Cool!

I just made a recording today for testing purposes. It's not perfect, but pretty accurate nevertheless
It's a song called "Big Love", I'm playing the live version which can be found on the Fleetwood Mac DVD "The Dance". No vocals included with this recording, but I can sing along with it.
http://www.box.net/public/7j4z7t0fo8 (mp3 file)

Oh. Right, I didn't play with a capo, I lost my capo and thus the song is played in a lower key than it should be.

Nice work! I can tell from your playing that you are skilled and very confident and as a result, that recording had a lot of soul.

You should probably try micing up your amp, it gives the sound much more character. If you plug it straight into the line in it always tends to sound a bit grainy if you get what I mean.

To ben:

Thanks
I connected my guitar to the amp and recorded from the amp, but I put the sound on clean (tube preamp), which doesn't give much character to the sound. There's another clean setting which sounds much better, I should've used that one to record this.

Just started recording. No vocals yet but "Jester" is gonna be mad catchy when we finish the recording with proper drum n bass tracks. The only real track in this recording is the guitar... An Epiphone through a Hughes and Kittner amp.

I've dug up this topic to show you my recording of Blackbird by the Beatles that I did on acoustic guitar. Incredibly, this only took one take, when I was expecting three or four. It isn't full or even correct in terms of where the different parts fit in, but I couldn't be bothered with all that.

Enjoy!

I play a customised stratocaster with built in LEDs, mp3 input, 2 fender single coil pickups & a dimebucker pickup, built by CMF guitars! i also hav an SX acoustic, SX PRS, Epiphone Explorer and a spanish guitar tat was being made by sum guy in a hut on a street in spain, he had a load of guitars nd i thought why not spend all my spending money (its only the second day of my 2 weeks holiday)! It was so worth it!
Thought, my CMF custom strat is my favourite

 
Breathing? It's optional!
