I attempt to play, bought my guitar a few months back, part of a New years thing - learn something new
My friend taught me basics, he's an amazing player (self taught due to a bet that he couldn't learn)and I think he got a little stressed teaching me cos I'm bad I'm better at keyboard!

But this weekend I managed to teach myself the start of In a little while (Love it )

I attempt to play as well. Sort of alright at it. My friend says I'm getting better!
I'm in (acoustic) guitar club in school, I know sort of the basics and I sort of teach myself. Slowly learning by learning to play songs and getting some help from my friend. I only know two U2 songs though. But I can play up to 14 songs!

My mum won't buy me a guitar though, so I'm stuck with the old rental guitars from school. I'm fine with it though, as long as I can play.

I'm hoping to get one for my birthday in November. And I'm gonna get some new strings for the rental. I asked the band teacher and he said it was alright. These ones are all rusted and green, I don't want them breaking while I play.
And thanks! I will!

I'm going to buy an electric soon.... but I'll need advice from a music teacher at school first, he's a professional guitarist so he'll be able to help me picking one

*has no idea what sort of fancy bass brands are out there* All I know is that Adam uses a lot of Fenders with Jazz necks on them, whatever that means.

*hugs her Yamaha*

noes, you got it wrong
he uses Fender Jazz Basses with Precision necks on them, because they're smaller and more comfortable for his hands...

and he uses Lakland basses aswell, the wooden ones with the black pickguard are lakland...




Edge's rickenbacker 360/12, guh... I'd love to have one of those!

Au contraire ... I am dead sure I've seen it the other way round somewhere. I've read an interview where he says he's still using an old Precision bass, but he put a Jazz neck on it... don't make me find a quote

*hunts*

I've seen pics of him with a Lakland bass, yes... but since I never heard of that brand before then, and have no idea why they're different to Fender basses, it seemed best not to mention it and betray my ignorance even further.
.... oops.

"It's a really light instrument, which is fantastic, because it's got this nice brightness without losing any bottom end. I'm always changing something on it, but it's still pretty much the same instrument I've always played. I did put a Jazz neck on it very early on; I find the Jazz neck suits my left hand better. The Precision is a painful, physical thing to do battle with. The Jazz is a bit more ladylike."

"Recently I've actually been playing Jazz basses, though, because I've been using my fingers a lot more, and I've been after a bit more definition. I recorded the new album [ATYCLB] with two Jazz basses -- a '61 and a '72. I also used my old Gibson Les Paul Recording bass. It's a short-scale thing with this great, round bottom that just moves air. It's great in the studio."
So I guess we were both right... kinda...
