Buy Acoustic Guitars: Opinions On This Bass Guitar?

I would like to know from any people with a good idea how much this guitar is worth: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260243255376

I have also recieved the following information from the seller:

Just had a good look over it again, very minimal marks really, no paint missing, just 2 or 3 small dints, your gonna add them yourself. if I am honest, and I am, i have tried to stop the auction, second thoughts, was going to replace with acoustic, i will go through with this sale if i have to, cos i can’t stop it, i won’t be crying if it does not sell, i have tried to stop auction on the 40 watt amp i am selling too. its yours if you want it though, man of my words and all that, someone else might buy it if you don’t anyway

So if you have any idea what its worth let me know. Cheers.
the bass is a fender squire

ac. guitar repairs- fret buzz- the fingerboard has come away from the guitar,is this what’s causing it?

i bought a cheap electric acoustic for 15 quid at a car boot and I thought I’d try and fix it up. I glued the fingerboard back down and clamped it while it went dry, but now it’s only a tiny bit away at the high end of the guitar and the frets still buzz from the 10th fret.
Is this a fret issue or does the fingerboard have to be exactly stuck to the neck with not even a tiny gap?

i am just wondering if it is worth buying or not, it seems quite cheap so im just curious as to whether it is bad or not.

DO you think it will be heavy, unreliable or what?

Buy Acoustic Guitars: The Name Of This Sweet R&B Song?



Guaranteed lowest price at MaurysMusic.com! Click this link for detailed product information: www.maurysmusic.com

A while ago I bought a 2nd hand external HD, and on it was a great untitled song, but I don’t know its name or the artist who sings it.
It is a mellow soul/R&B song, with an acoustic guitar, brushed drum sound, and the sweet-voiced female singer sounds very like Aaliyah, I thought I had everything she ever did, had never heard this before and I still wouldn’t entirely rule out it being her.
I have had this song for about three years, so the song will be older than that.
At a guess I would say it could be called “Sweet caress” or maybe “In Your Arms” as the chorus goes,
“If you ask me where I want to be, it’s in your arms”

Tried googling lyrics, with no joy.

More lyrics:

“Candlelight dinner, romantic mu-u-sic, and a carriage ride to sunri-i-ise,
a dozen roses, and a cruise along the sea, while the fireworks light the sky,
Sure, these things can often win the heart, of the one you lo-o-ove,
But I don’t need nothing fancy, no, Cos being with you would be enough.

If you ask me where I want to be, it’s in your arms,
Baby when you’re holding me, I know I’ll be free from harm,
My love don’t cost a thing, you’re my happiness,
Tell me this is what you’ll bring, I love your sweet caress

Let’s take a little stroll boy, along the beach at night,
With our toes in the sand, walking hand in hand,
Under the stars and the moonli-i-ight,
Can you feel the breezes, and the water whispers as it gently comes to the shore,
What more could I ask for?

I can’t help but smile, Because I know that you are with me,
I guess what they say is true, the best things in life are free
Baby, can’t you see

If you ask…”

Any know it please?
Thanks for the answer of “Two of a kind”
Unfortunately, that isn’t it, Although, the lyrics may be similar, that is a rock song, the one I mean is soft soul/R&B.
In the style of Aaliyah/Alicia Keys.

I sing and play acoustic guitar, and am just reaching the stage where I’m starting to play a little bit for people (instead of just by myself!). The thing is, I have a fairly quiet voice and it often gets drowned out a bit by the guitar (I know I am singing correctly from the diaphragm etc, it’s just the way my voice is). So I’m thinking of buying a mic, stand and amp that I can practise with at home, and so that if I decide to practise in front of anyone they will be able to hear me properly.
I don’t need anything particularly huge or expensive, it’s really just for practising with.
Can anyone recommend any particular types please? If you can include a link to it that would be really helpful, thank you.

Buy Acoustic Guitars: What To Do With These Musical Finds?

Guaranteed lowest price at MaurysMusic.com! Click this link for more information: www.maurysmusic.com


So, my brother recently bought a house and the previous occupant left loads of items lying around.

These included (pardon me for my lack of music lingo):

-Two Gemini TT 01 Turntables with instructions, and cables
-Stanton SA.3 Professional mixer, two adapttors, instruction manuals
-A Hi Spot acoustic guitar
-And vinyls – lots of them from Alan Parsons(?), Mr Fisher, 32 Greatest Hits which include Michael Jackson.

Browsing on ebay, they don’t seem to be selling like hotcakes.

Should I sell the turntables and mixer together or can I sell the turntables and mixer seperately?

Will the vinyls sell on ebay and if not, how much could I get for them from record shops?

And, how much should I sell the acoustic guitar for? Might put it on ebay also.

Cheers!

Buy Acoustic Guitars: I Never Know If I Actually Like Something, Or Whether I Like It Because Someone I Am Obsessed With Likes It?

I don’t really know how to explain it.
I am always obsessed with someone.
This time last year I was obsessed with Johnny Depp.
Last winter I was obsessed with Noel Fielding.
In Spring I was obsessed with David Bowie.
I am currently obsessed with David Bowie and Slash and Matt Smith.
by obsessed I mean I know everything about them :)
but, anyway, I can never tell whether I genuinely like something, or just like it because the person I am obsessed with likes it.
For example, when I was really obsessed with David Bowie, I was watching an interview or something, and I found out that he had a blue acoustic guitar.
I had already been planning on getting an acoustic (I already have an electric).
I went to a guitar shop and I saw a blue acoustic, and I immediatley liked it.
The thing is, I don’t know if I ACTUALLY like it, like, when I get over my obsession, I don’t know if I will still like it, because I will no longer care if David Bowie had a blue guitar.
Do you see what I mean?
another example is when I was obsessed with Noel Fielding. Noel Fielding is known for wearing very pointy shoes. So I went out and bought pointy shoes. I wore them all the time. I am no longer obsessed with Mr Fielding, and I have sort of gone off the shoes.

In the future, how can I tell if I really do like something, or whether I am kinda accidentally pretending to like it?

Buy Acoustic Guitars: Setting Up Microphone For Recording With Computer?

Hello, I want a mic for recording amateur vocals and acoustic guitar at home, I’ve decided on buying this one…
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000KH0I64/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=&seller=

I believe it comes with a XLR > Jack cable, but I think that’s it… So I assume I will need an adapter to plug it into a computer, but is there anything else I need? I’m thinking of the boxes that it would be plugged into in professional recording studios but I’m not sure what they do?

Any help appreciated, thanks.

How to stop that ‘plastic-y flicking’ sound of the pick when strumming guitar?

www.metal-gitarre-lernen.de Mp3 Download www.fileserve.com High Quality and Stereo Sound Vimeo Link: www.vimeo.com Morning people, A new song from the new album “A Sense Of Purpose”. I think it is great. Go buy the album. Apologies for the very unclean Verse riff. Too fast for me, not my style. I learned this song by ear and recorded it. Came out very good, I think. I programmed the drums myself. Tried to get it as near as possible to the original. Intro: A Part “Sleepless Again” from In Flames which I recorded with my acoustic guitar. Description: I first record the audio of the song, then film me playing both guitars and edit them together. Gear: Guitar: Epiphone Les Paul Special Strings: Elixir 12-68, but I will change them, not good for me Tuning: Dropped A# Bass: Keiper 5 string Amp: Line6 Toneport UX2 with PowerPack AddOn. Recording device: same as above Recording Software: Steinberg Cubase. Drums: Toontrack EZDrummer with dfh AddOn Camcorder: Panasonic NV-GS 11 Video Editing: Adobe Premiere Pro See Ya. Da Schehf !!!


I don’t know if its just me but when I play my electric guitar, I get that ‘flicking plastic’ sound from the pick. Normally this wouldn’t bother me as I’d have the amp fairly loud or whatever but when I turn the amp onto the ‘acoustic’ setting to play acoustic songs (I can’t afford an acoustic guitar) the actual guitar sounds fine and about as acoustic as an electric one is gunna get, but the flicking plastic sound of the pick is just as loud, if not louder than the actual guitar sound which really bugs me! Is it just me playing wrong or does this generally happen with electrics? I heard somewhere that it might be because my pick is too thin so I bought a thicker one but it seems to still do pretty much the same thing plus I prefer playing with a thinner pick since it feels more ‘flexible’. Can someone please help me out to stop this annoying noise? Thanks

I’ve been playing acoustic guitar for 3 years and finally I entered a rock music school, but I’m not sure which instrument to pick up. I’d like to become a bassist, but I could also become a potential electric guitarist, since I already can play some acoustic guitar. I’d be sorry not to attend guitar lessons since I’d basically throw away what I already, and it would be a pity since it’s been my instrument for 3 years. Now I’d like to attend both guitar and bass lessons, but my parents don’t agree. Lessons and instruments cost: I tried to come to a deal by telling them I wouldn’t buy the instruments if I attended both courses but they declined. They want me to do one. Also, a bassist to be good shouldn’t be only a bassist, but should know how to play another similar instrument from which he then switched to bass, such as guitar or upright bass, so guitar lessons next to bass lessons are very useful. What should I do? Also, I’m gonna be 18 in four days, my parents will buy me an instrument as a gift what should I tell them to buy?

I’m going to start playing the guitar soon and I’m looking for a good acoustic to start off with.
I’ve asked my friends for advice, but none of them play it, so I’m a bit stuck.

Because I haven’t even started playing yet, I don’t really know much about it or what to look for – and also, I won’t be able to try a guitar very well if I can’t play one!
I know it’s more sensible to have the lessons first, and THEN buy the guitar, but I have absolutely nothing to learn on…

Has anyone got any advice for me?
And I’m not planning to change to electric at any time. I’ll keep to an acoustic.

A question about buying a Guitar….!?

I need to buy a new guitar, that plugs into an amp, am I right in thinking that this is called an electro acoustic? or can you convert a normal acoustic?
I need to get value for money as my budget is only about £100. I already have a normal acoustic.
Thanks.

Buy Acoustic Guitars: Samick Formula Guitars?



Copyright 1987 Geffen Taken from Wikipedia “Paradise City” is a song written by the hard rock band Guns N’ Roses. It is included on the 1987 album Appetite for Destruction and was released as a single in 1988. It is also the only song on the album to use a synthesizer. The song peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100, the third single of the band’s to go Top 10. Slash states that the song was written in the back of a rental van as they were on their way back from playing a gig in San Francisco with the band Rock N Riders . He states that the band was in the back of the van, drinking and playing acoustic guitars when he came up with the intro. Duff McKagan and Izzy Stradlin started playing along. Slash started humming a melody when Axl Rose sang, “Take me down to the Paradise City.” Slash chimed in with “Where the girls are fat and they’ve got big titties.” but the rest of the band wanted to make the song more ‘radio-friendly’, so Axl sang the first line again, where Slash chimed in with “Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.” Axl finished with “Take . . . me . . . home!” The band then expanded upon the rest of the lyrics in rounds. Finally Slash wrapped up by coming up with the heavy riff that drives the song. “Paradise City” is thought by some to be about Los Angeles and its corruption at the time. Some believe the song to be written about Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin’s hometown of Lafayette, Indiana and the nearby Purdue University campus. During a

Hey, I’ve been playing guitar since christmas but I only have an acoustic, I’ve been meaning to get an electric but I’m not sure. I’m on a tight budget and I’ve managed to find two guitars I’m considering getting but I’m not sure which one. One of them is a fender squier.
