"Alternative Approaches" to the "Guitar System"

Recommended Posts

I don't know about this stuff, man. What's happening to the idea of just picking up a guitar, a normal one, engaging with it, and creating some music. A lot of what I see in this video would seem to take away from that purer experience. It's training wheel after training wheel, iSh!t this and that, blah! I see these things as more of a bastardization of the guitar than anything else, and it saddens me somewhat, or maybe it's just me getting older.

I am getting one of those Les Paul's with G Force tuning, which caused me watch some YouTube videos about it. A guy made an interesting quote that I am going to steal and use often... 
 
 
If you can't get over the fact that you have to tune your own guitar, then you don't have the drive to want to play guitar.

Click the 3rd button from the top left of the reply box, Special BB Code, select media from the dropdown, paste the youtube url.

 

Or just surround the youtube url with media tags.

I stopped watching this masterbatory nonsense after I heard : "...but learning to play takes time and commitment. Can we focus on the music instead of the aching fingers?"

 

NO. YOU CAN'T. That's part of the commitment. There's no substitute. End of story.

 

Instant gratification is a disease. Let's get Pfizer working on a cure for that instead of elephant-strength painkillers and crazy pills....

Never happen. Why would Pfizer work against their own purposes? So much of what they do depends on mass numbers of people succumbing to instant gratification.

Thanks. That works.

 

But when embedding a video to start play at a specific time, the forum seems to throw away the specific time and start from the beginning.

FWP ('Law') occurrences might replace Godwin's Law.

Except if it's a 3rd World oriented topic; current Line 6 equipment are irrelevant in that regard.

 

I can't switch tuning, tones and settings with a single footswitch.. help me..
