I've finally learnt that there is a switch that lets you choose another pickup other than the bridge and theres this thing called a volume knob which you can use to adjust your toan and gain with, has anyone else come across this on a guitar before? I'm sure it wasn't in the manual.

Just wait until you find the tone knob, mind blowing ;-)

I find it like a depressing living kind of death if I don't play for some time, one of those things you love but let die. It all washes away when I pick that thing up and get lost in it.

LOL, you are right, silly me. There is no tone in the tone knob. It can't be in the fingers, else we would all be talking about playing rather than about gear. So tone must all be in the booteek gear :roll:

I'm gonna learn the Black Betty solo for my band to play live. And after that is Free Bird. I think both will clean up my lead playing quite a bit.

I've been meaning to sit down and work out Paranoid Android by Radiohead for years, and I had a bit of spare time the other night so finally got to it. Great fun to play, and it's been cool playing it at last few solo gigs. It's got to be one of the stranger top 10 hits there have been.

Your GF has great taste.

Hopefully she doesn't ask you to learn to play Magma... depending on your setup it might be impossible to play the main riff as its all pinch harmonics and those sound different on everyone's setups!

Haha, she linked me to that too. But changed it after I was liking Global warming.
