Can anybody play "Keep Forgettin" by Michael Mcdonald? I have always been obsessed with that tune.

3 new VEs just uploaded. ROCK on Friday!

I have submitted a wrong video! Never mind, The next one is gonna be better hopefully :)

Sometimes I can’t handle life very well but then I remember that music, guitars and this school exists. It’s about time I did another VE. Rock!

@Drewseph Yes Sir.!

Just broke a string making my VE. About to have another go and upload soon!

goblintokyo. You learn how to play slow before you play fast. Basic rule. To learn how to play a solo fast, you must slow it down to hear every nook and cranny of its essance to understand it.

Hello All

I wanna be able to play riffs faster! For now I play super slow tempo.

RIP ROY!!!

Is there a character limit on posting in Forums?

So sad to hear that Wayne Charvel’s home and workshop was destroyed in Paradise fire. There is a fundraiser, https://www.gofundme.com/wayne-guitars-wayne-charvel-shop

Rock n roll day and night

Thats awesome alex, I actually don't know much of his work outside of Danger Danger.

I just came back from Andy Timmons' Clinic here in the city in which I study and he was bloody brilliant! He played "Strawberry Fields Forever", which was amazing! Many people at concerts told me to listen to Timmons and now I understand why

Thank you Paul! You are the best!

@vinicius_guedes Never thought of les paul before! I will consider it as a new choice. Thank you so much for all of your practical advice!I appreciate it vm and will take time to find the ONE, the real ONE that I want to play for a long long time. Could be much harder than finding my husband.... I will keep on trying.

Goblintokyo, I have 2 guitars, one les paul (24.75") and one strat (25.5"), the strat has a standard C neck profile and the les paul has a chunky 50's style "baseball bat" profile. There is a huge difference in the way they play and feel, also bending and vibrato is considerably easier on the les paul, and I think this makes a lot more difference than the neck profile. A lot of les pauls nowadays have weight relief and they aren't much heavier than a ash strat, also the SG shape has easier access to higher frets and are lighter than the les pauls, might be worth checking out before going the way of a extremely short scale like 22.2".

Hi nardact! I thought that lighter guitar might make it easy for my hurtig back. I got a bad back and a FMS. You are right! I will go try smaller guitars. Thank you for your suggestion!

For me the 25.5" scale was too much of a stretch, especially with left hand muting.

@goblintokyo You didn't say why you were considering a smaller guitar. For me it's small hands/build. I've got a Mikro and a Baby Taylor BT1 acoustic (same scale length). I ended up with a small Gibson scale length instrument too because I thought the tone was just better (it's a Hagstrom Ultra Swede). There are some forum posts where Paul makes other suggestions too (short scale Fenders like the Jaguar). Best thing is to try a few. You will have more options the larger you go.

Takezo you know the market well then!

Garrett! It will be def. a good idea! I think there was a Gaijin band I have seen on YT.

Anime Songs are legit though goblin

日本に行って、バンドを作って、英語を教えてみたいです。

もし、日本に行って、FOREIGNER cover band called 外人を作って、 面白そうです。

Now the young guitar kids in Japan are playing a lotta 60's and 70's and pretty much ppl like Blues and Jazz. The rest of the kids are playing anime songs on YT.

80’sに人気でした!

FOREIGNERは日本に人気ですか。

Anybody into a Japanese Band called ONE OK ROCK?

Wanna know what love is : )

I have never seen nor owned a mini guitar so far. I found PGMM31 unused for $208. Then I started to wonder if it is better to buy a regular size Ibanez... Thank you for the tips, Garrett! I shall wait till I get to play better.

Getting into FOREIGNER again. What an awesome band.

Who is in the bay area to play rock tunes?

You can find the Mikro for $150 or $100 used in the US. Gryphon mini guitar is cooler, though it's tuned up. Taylor makes some killer shorter scaled guitars but they're acoustic and expensive.

Drewseph Thanks for the information! Bending is one of my favorite techniques to learn! My dream is to play "wonderful tonight" and "Layla" smoothly:)

Theres a few people that play it here at the school.. I have one and I like it. I have small hands so its comfortable and you can bend strings like craZy. ;)

Yes goblintokyo. The Ibanez Paul Gilbert PGMM31 is a inexpensive lightweight shortscale thats easy to play.

Hi Paul I like Tokai and Yamaha a lot. Maybe. someday I might try Ibanez ! Do they have light weighted ones too?

3 new VEs uploaded now. ROCK on Tuesday!

P.P.S. Overall, I like any of the 4-input vintage reissues. It's nice to have the I and II channels, because they sound quite different from each other, so you've got more options than the JCM800. None of these will have distortion unless you crank them up. So pedals and/or an attenuator are a must (unless you have a room where cranking them up makes sense.)

P.S. The 1959 is LOUD. What kind of venues are you playing? If they are small, then the JTM45 could be a better choice (and is still plenty loud.)

Hi Scott, I like the 1959. But that's because I get my distortion from pedals these days. If you want distortion from the amp, then the 1959 could still be good, but you'll need an attenuator (like the Hot Plate) so you can keep the volume at a useable level.

Paul, need advice please buying a new amp, cant decide on Marshall 1959 hand wired 100w Plexi or 100w JCM 800 either will be with a 1960 Cab. Thank you!

I hope all of you in SoCal are safe, I send you my best wishes.
