I read that Gibson alone offers over 150 different varieties with their standard, reissues and artist series. Add to that all of the other manufacturer’s models and you have several hundred different “looks” to pick from.
BUT THAT’S NOT ENOUGH!!!
For all of you wanna-be guitar designers, click on the image to the left and watch your screen morph into a guitar designers pallet of options.
Be patient as this site may take a minute or two to load…but I guarantee it will be worth the wait!
This is an amazing graphics application that will allow you to customize the Color (Plaintop, Flametop, Quilttop), Body (Finish, Binding, Pickguard), Neck (Ebony, Rosewood, Maple, Inlays), Pickups (Bridge, Neck, Screws), Hardware (Tuner, Bridge, Controls, Toggle) and so much more.
I was roaming the isles at NAMM and came across a demonstration for what quickly became a must-have electric guitar application for my iTouch.
The PRS JAM AMP combines a great-sounding guitar amp simulator, a backing track audio file player and a super-accurate tuner into an all-around first class application that allows me to jam along to backing tracks and slow down riffs and solos for optimal practice — all through my mobile device and the privacy of my headphones.
The PRS JAM AMP lets you load, loop and slow down audio clips for repeated practice of those tricky parts. Upload and play back popular riffs and songs in MP3, ACC (unprotected) or AIIF formats using the onboard web interface.
You can even adjust the tuning of your audio tracks to your guitar. For example, if the backing track was recorded in the key of C#… you can adjust the pitch upward by three tones and play along on your guitar in E! That means any track can be played in your favorite key!
The amp application includes the standard tone controls as well as input boost, reverb and crunch (overdrive). There is even a slider to adjust for room size.
As far as I am concerned, this is the ultimate iPhone-iTouch application. I can walk around in my house with my Les Paul strapped on and my iTouch in my pocket. The optional (but required) Guitarbud cable that connects my iTouch to my Guitar and headphones is neatly tucked in my back pocket and I am jamming along (walking room-to-room) to a backing track — all the while listening to everything through my headphones.
The best part is…. I am playing LOUD… and my wife hears nothing!
Whether you’re practicing, recording your latest idea, or just killing time, true inspiration and killer tone is finally as close as your iPhone or iTouch.
Want to learn the guitar fretboard?
Even for guitarists of many years experience, true mastery of the fretboard is elusive, yet understanding the layout of the guitar fretboard is crucial for really unlocking the potential of the guitar.
A comprehensive knowledge of the guitar fretboard will enable you to understand and learn scales more easily, improvise more fluidly, find notes faster, read music more easily and play with greater confidence.
I am not sure if this is a limited time offer or a permanent link, so CLICK HERE as soon as you can to download your FREE copy of Fretboard trainer!
In case you did not know… MusiciansFriend.com has a daily special called the “Stupid Deal of the Day”.
I have purchased a few items from them over the past year that had great special prices. You can add it to your RSS feed as well. It’s a pretty cool idea and I would recommend you get their daily feed.
Anyway, I have been reading about the VOX JamVox for several months. The product is supposed to strip the guitar from any MP3 music file you have so that YOU can play along with the track as the lead guitar player. The JamVox includes software and a monitor and requires a pretty powerful computer.
Well, good old St Nicholas at MusiciansFriend must have known what I wanted for the holidays as The JamVox popped up as the “Stupid Deal” for today at $129 with free shipping. That’s a really good price!
I know… it sounds way to good to be true and I am sure the JamVox is not perfect. But I pulled the trigger and ordered one since the price was only good for TODAY.
Does anybody already own one of these?
My new year’s resolution? To become a better guitar player… of course!
I was searching the Internet today and I found a really cool open source software tool that will slow down (or speed up) music from an MP3 file or directly from a CD — without changing the original pitch! It’s called BestPractice, and you can download it for FREE.
The software allows you to slow down a high-speed guitar solo on a track you want to learn. You can define a starting and stopping point for a lick within the track and then “loop the lick” over and over until you have it figured out.
