The pentatonic scale
Major pentatonic scale

Jacks Wasted Life - GAS is gear acquisition syndrome...if you have GAS you are constantly looking at new gear and buying new shit. GAS can be very expensive and most people who've played a long time have some degree of it. I had a bad case last year and bought way too much stuff (I'm up to 8 electric guitars). Haven't bought anything since November and am trying to chill the fuck out now.

Another bad thing about GAS is sometimes you'll spend more time reading about gear or watching videos of gear than you spend playing. You have a great setup now, so I'd mostly focus on playing what you have. It's too early for you to get a bad case of GAS...it'll hit you eventually anyway. Phone Post
I think I'm doing pretty well at mixing things up. I practice for about an hour, then ill work on a song. At night I'm reading about guitar theory. Yeah I guess I do have GAS but I just love playing. I can't think of anything else I need to buy.

But like I said I'm still on the lookout for an ibanez JEM Phone Post

I have an Ibanez Steve Vai model Jem - what kind of Jem are you looking for? Also, to learn blues from a beginner to intermediate level, look up Griff Hamlin's Playing Through the Blues course - definitely recommend it.

I couldn't seem to get the Wah pedal to work no matter what I did.  Do you have to put in batteries if you run it through your board?



You are switching it on, as in pressing the foot pedal down to click the switch?
Yes I'm not that stupid dude Phone Post


I at least gave you the benefit of the doubt when it came to not having it upside down.

 I was also wondering how the specs on my strat are.  Im not going to change anything but would you recommend changing the pickups, bridge, etc...

  • Body: Alder
  • Neck: 1-Piece Maple, Soft "V" Shape
  • Fingerboard: Maple, 9.5” Radius (241mm)
  • Scale Length: 25.5in (648 mm)
  • No. of Frets: 21 Medium Jumbo Frets
  • 1.650 (42 mm) at the nut
  • Machine Heads: Fender/Gotoh Vintage Style Tuning Machines
  • Pickups: 2 Tex-Mex Calibrated, Overwound, Single-Coil Strat Pickups (Neck and Middle), 1 Tex-Mex “Hot Bridge” Single-Coil Strat Pickup (Bridge)
  • Pickup Switch: 5-position blade
  • Controls: Master Volume, Tone (Neck), Tone (Bridge)
  • Pickguard: 1-Ply White
  • Bridge: American Vintage Synchronized Tremolo
  • Strings: Fender Super 250L, Nickel Plated Steel, (.009 to .042)

The Jimmie Vaughan Stratocaster is one of the Fender Artists Series guitars. It was designed by Vaughan himself and made at the Ensenada plant in Mexico using American-made electronics.

Vaughan required a Stratocaster that was simple yet had more powerful pickups and a ‘V’-shaped maple neck. The wiring on this guitar is a little different than others as well.

The body of the guitar is made of Alder and comes in 2-Color sunburst, Olympic White, Black, and Candy Apple Red colors with a Polyester finish. It has a single-ply white pickguard with 8 screw-holes. The bridge is an American Vintage synchronized tremolo.

The 25.5 inch scale length neck is made of a single piece of maple and has a soft ‘V’ shape profile with a satin polyurethane finish. The radius of the neck is 9.5 inches with 21 medium jumbo frets. The nut width is standard at 1.650 inches (42 mm) while the headstock has Jimmie’s signature on its backside. The machine heads are Fender/Gotoh vintage tuners.

The pickups used for the neck and middle pickups are Tex-Mex overwound vintage types which use Alnico 5 magnets that produce a stronger output than those in other pickups. Polysol wire is used for the windings. The middle pickup is reverse-wound causing hum cancellation when engaged in pickup selector positions 2 and 4. The bridge pickup is a Tex-Mex hot bridge pickup which is a part of the Tex-Mex pickup set. Another unique feature is the lack of a tone control on the middle pickup. Instead, the first tone knob is used for the neck pickup and the second for the bridge. The 5-way pickup selector is wired normally, except for the above-mentioned hum-cancelling effect.

Earlier model had a poplar body. Colors were vintage white, candy apple red, sonic blue, and sunburst. These Tex Mex models came with a jalepeno pepper decal on the pick guard. One way to differentiate the initial Tex Mex from the later Jimmie Vaughan is the inclusion of an 11-hole two ply black and white pick guard.

Check this link out - it looks like that price is a bit high for that model. I have the made in Japan model, which is the "real" Vai model.

Also, to make theory easier to understand on guitar, you can check out the Guitar Grimoire by "Adam Kadmon".

If you want to check out Buckethead's guitar teacher, his name is Pebber Brown (pebberbrown on YouTube) - he doesn't mince any words about practice!

This is probably a good setup for playing blues. If you are looking for a Jem, you will definitely notice a difference in the necks. The Jem neck is thinner and the curvature of the fretboard is alot flatter, which makes it easier for bending, and for most people, makes it easier to play faster, as well. The radius of the fretboard on the Strat has more of a curvature and makes it easier for most people to play chords.

I believe the Jem has a 16 or 17" radius vs. the 9.5" of the Strat.

OP, I was in very similar place to you some years back. Stick with it through the gains and plateaus, you will love it. For me, more than effects, I bought and sold a lot of guitars to learn what I liked. Do yourself a favor and go to a Music Store, try out an Ernie Ball Music Man guitar, I suggest an Axis Super Sport model, but they are all amazing. Or maybe better yet, play what you have for a year, and then you'll be in a better position to judge what you do and don't like.

Also I would say to avoid the temptation to swap parts on the axes you have.

Those 3 guitars would cover pretty much any musical situation (except acoustic I guess). I love the feel of my Ibanez and it covers alot of ground, sonically.

The key to getting better is consistency, especially when you are first starting out. Even if you just pick up the guitar for a few minutes everyday, you'll see a difference over time (muscle memory). So, ignore the negative comments and keep practicing!

MentaL - 

did this yesterday. Nout too technical but you may want to observe or ask questions, feel free. 


okay I got it to work.  That is insane man.  How long did it take to get your fingers to stretch like that seem like you could hit a finger 1 first fret while finger 4 hit the 5th.  Also you seem to play like the old fashion tradition guitarist, with the neck up really high and tilted in, does that cause any problems when you play standing up?

 

What kind of nut is that?

On the stretchy chords it seem like your thumb is in the middle of the neck but I cant tell if it is in the middle of the hand or pointed towards the top of the neck, which way is it?  Im assuming in the middle.

Which chord at what seconds, plus I'm playing with a 7 string so it's different to a 6 in terms of setup and position. Phone Post

MentaL - 

did this yesterday. Nout too technical but you may want to observe or ask questions, feel free. 


okay I got it to work.  That is insane man.  How long did it take to get your fingers to stretch like that seem like you could hit a finger 1 first fret while finger 4 hit the 5th.  Also you seem to play like the old fashion tradition guitarist, with the neck up really high and tilted in, does that cause any problems when you play standing up?

 

What kind of nut is that?

On the stretchy chords it seem like your thumb is in the middle of the neck but I cant tell if it is in the middle of the hand or pointed towards the top of the neck, which way is it?  Im assuming in the middle.

 

 

Which chord at what seconds, plus I'm playing with a 7 string so it's different to a 6 in terms of setup and position. Phone Post
With a seven string are the strings closer together? That is what I'm assuming Phone Post

I was gettin upset with all this talk about having GAS. I didn't know what it meant so I figured it was a jab at me being new and buying guitar stuff.

So yes that is my fault and I apologize. I do have GAS this has become an obsession. I have to learn to play good, it's not a want to anymore. Phone Post
