    Chrome cover on Tele Strat pickup?

    Thanks very much for the advice, I will aim for plastic covered or nickle silver. Not expensive so I can try them out and if I don't like swap back:)

    Chrome cover on Tele Strat pickup?

    Hi all, Possibly a stupid question but I was bored and pondering putting a chrome cover on the middle Strat pickup in a Nashville Tele just for the look. Something like the cover on a Tele neck pickup with no holes for pole pieces. Will this destroy the tone and will the pole pieces need...

    Dan Armstrong mod - switch option possible to retain tone pot?

    Hi all, I am considering doing the Dan Armstrong mod which uses the middle tone knob to be a blender to allow the following options. I wanted to know if this is possible with just a push pull to have it either on or off, so I can retain the lower knob for the middle pickup tone? I think it is...

    Buddy Guy shredding the bridge pickup live 1969

    I need to do more research and see if there is anymore footage, not sure how many songs were played at this show. Here is another show with Jack Bruce and Rahsaan Roland Kirk though.

    Buddy Guy shredding the bridge pickup live 1969

    One of my favourite clips of Buddy off the hook live giving his bridge pickup a work out. I love how the band are following Buddy with some elastic time keeping, like a jazz band following a sax player. I made the terrible mistake of learning my blues from clips like this rather than the Beano...

    Are you feeling like?

    I am doing a lot of work focusing on environmental themes and equality in my job and I find actually engaging with the things that cast a shadow over modern life helps a lot with mental health. Also as others have mentioned having a broad view of the span of human history and it's peaks and...

    may I know your most used skill/technique to jam ?

    To me learning endless scales is the kiss of death to creativity. I am not saying it is not useful for certain types of music but I have often found players learn scales very mechanically and this translate to their playing. If I am learning a scale I always practice it melodically. For me...

    It's good I mostly play originals

    I think learning tracks by breaking them down into smaller parts helps a lot. A lot depends on how quickly you need to learn tracks by, some people do manage to pick up songs very quickly, but if you have some time to practice a set then take a tune and learn the verse well then move onto the...

    Position 1 to neck and bridge mod?

    For a while I was pondering on off switches but think it maybe a bit of a hassle live, knowing my technique (or lack of) I would be knocking every switch on and off. Although could be great for a recording guitar:)
