    Of course you could do that...however.... Be aware that you may cause irreparable damage to your nut. For example a 46 gauge "e" string will not simply slide into a 10 gauge nut slot and could crack the nut. Also, the bridge saddles will need ...(more)

    Wondering if you might know where I could purchase a Gibson Switch Washer in the color <b>Gold</b> (probably actually polished brass). The color of the letters on the washer are not important. Thanks for your help! -Andrew

    Do you know where I can find a Toggle Switch Cap for a Gibson Les Paul Studio? Here's the catch...it MUST be the color GOLD (I know it's probably made out of polished brass). Also looking for a Gibson Switch Washer also in Gold. Thanks in advan...(more)

    There are many different ways (inversions) of playing any chord on the guitar. For example I can think of at least five additional ways to play the G11 chord you are attempting. The way I most commonly play an x11 chord is like this (root note ...(more)

    One thing to try before you buy anything (from a candy bar to a car) is to try the VERY best of that product (usually the most expensive) and, if that is not the one you are buying :-), then try out your target purchase. This exercise has saved...(more)

    The technique used for that section of <em>Aerodynamic</em> is using a similar tapping pattern to that of Van Halen during <em>Eruption</em>. However it is not a sample of that song. A few reasons to start with, 1) The chordal melody is differen...(more)

    Adrian, I have tried the Milk-Shake but found it noisy and does not have a true bypass killing your tone when not in use. For info on this pedal, check out: <a href="http://www.harmony-central.com/Effects/Data/Danelectro/DJ_7_MilkShake_Chorus-1...(more)
