    Just take a tape measure into your local music store and take a few quick outer dimensions. Measure wood thickness, taking off about 1/16" to 1/8" for the vinyl, depending on how thick it is. You will probably find that it will be 5/8" thick to ...(more)

    I would say learn your chords and learn them well. Practice chord inversions too. Learn a little chord construction theory, too. The rest will come with practice.

    Well let's see.... My dream band must have John Popper on harminica and vocals. Let's face it, the man is just bad! We'll do a little Steve Morse action on guitar. Rod Morganstein on Drums, because the guy is comfortable in any situation. S...(more)

    I wouldn't even buy that stupid album. I had it burned for me the day before it was released, and I didn't like it enough to go buy a true copy. You gotta admit though, those black eye things Wes Boredomland wears are pretty cool. Wonder were...(more)

    I would like to know what happened to Jeff Healey myself. That blind man sure could play, but he just dropped off the face of the earth.

    I was at a friend's house and he wanted me to hear a song. He didn't know the name of it or the band, but he did know that John Popper from Blues Traveler was playing harmonica on it and Derek Trucks and a few of the Allman Bros. boys were on i...(more)

    Hey if you are looking for something to tell you what key you are playing in, check out the "Circle of Fifths" in the guitar basics page, under theory. It won't tell you where you are playing on the neck, but with a little understanding of the ...(more)

    I would suggest getting into any of the Berkley Series of books. Not only do they teach you the guitar, but they also teach you how to read music and chords, so you don't have to rely on just tablature.

    Locking nuts are a godsend if you are beating on the tremelo, but the real question you have to ask yourself is are you really going to use the tremelo? I have a double locking gimmick on my guitar and I rarely ever put the bar on.
