I had an LP Standard for 10 years and the jack plate liked to loosen up after plugging and unplugging several times. It would cause a very nasty buzz because the input jack would wiggle once you had plugged in. It's easy to miss and easy to tighten up. I'd check that before plunging into the electronics. You might get lucky.

I really hope you find time in your day to have some fun and don't forget to take care of yourself. If you don't take care of yourself your body and mind will break down, you'll get sick if you're depressed it will worsen. I admire your dedication, just don't end up like of those crazy gamer kids that stay up for like 50 hours and forget to eat and go the toilet lol.

I was told by a guitar tech when I was having my Strat serviced that you shouldn't leave strings off your guitar for extended periods. He said once a guitar is said it needs the resistance or pull of the strings and the neck can warp without it. Now... that's what I was told but I never had a knowledgeable source to verify that with. It may be worth checking out. I was looking into your situation and I found the below info and similar info on other sites. If there are people in the know in PB la...

Lmao that's actually comforting. Good to know it's a marathon and not a sprint.

Hey Frakh, when you say 2 years for any technique... does that apply to all techniques basic and advanced or were you meaning towards techniques that are new to you? Just curious. I've been working on my sucktastic legato for a month or so now, so it's always nice to know time frames for improvement. I realize it's off the main topic and apologize if it's a distraction.

I totally get what you're talking about. I've been playing for over 20 years, I'm just a hobbyist and always have been. When I first started playing I was really into it and really wanted to get good and be in bands and the whole thing. As time went by I realized I wanted to keep playing because it relaxes me, it's fun and I have a genuine love for the instrument. But... at my core I'm not a musician. I'm a guy who plays guitar for fun. For the last six months or so I've put more effort in and b...

It's very cool that you were able to get that motivation and achieve that kind of focus at such a young age. I'll be 40 in a few days and I still struggle with focus. I know some of it is might be because I was apart of the first generation to grow up on video games, but I don't wanna cop out like that. I've always had a hard time staying focused over long periods. It takes a very disciplined and motivated person to do what you and your students are doing and especially for so long. For me and I...

Hey guys I have the latest version of Ableton live that I'm slowly learning. I'm a visual artist so audio software is all new to me. I want to record my practices and have some jam tracks to play along with. Do you recommend I learn to make my own jam tracks or start off with some prerecorded stuff? And if I use prerecorded do you guys have any recommendations of where to look? Thanks in advance for any info.

People buy that kind of stuff because they're looking for the secret shortcut. Anybody that's been playing guitar for a reasonable amount of time knows there are no shortcuts. Efficient ways doing things and practicing yes but as you stress it takes years of repetition. Magic secrets to overnight success will always outsell hard work, but rarely produces any kind of success. Even when people do succeed using that kind of nonsense it's likely as a result of their own work ethic rather than the sy...
