advertise your idea....but theres not going to be many musos who need an amp repairing
+ i cant imagine an electrical engineer running a delivery service unless hes been sacked cause hes a
shit sparky.. pehaps uber might be persuaded to explore your concept and try the idea
they deliver pitzas undamaged now and again ♪♪

transporting by carrier must be the worst thing that could happen to an amp.. esp a valve amp
unless its wrapped in a 12 foot' thick wrapper of cotton wool and bubble wrap
and encased in a cocoon of indestructible 3" carbon fibre
carriers have a terrible reputation for senseless handling of items

any other form of transport used responsibly shouldn't be an issue as long as its
not falling about or vibrating too much in transit

i shouldn't think many musos would use a carrier when gigging ( how would that work )
unless its hired by A gigging touring band

moral: if you MUST use a general purpose carrier get your items well insured

rule of thumb
put the mic between 6/12" from the guitar aimed at the 12-15th fret but not at the sound hole ( if acoustic )
make sure you use headphones so you dont need to monitor from your speakers ( turn them of when recording )
you do need some proper interface...see you tube for advice regarding your situation

the best way is to try them out ..you will warm to one of them
it depends on how they are set up etc

Theres lots going on with the rest of the ' track ' that make it sound like theres more
chords ie bass lines etc..for instance you could play C instead of Am since there is
a A bass note ..or an F chord with a D bass which will sound like a Dm7 etc
run downs on chords will also make a particular chord sound
different and so on 

in actual fact theres only about 4 different basic chords in the whole song

what you need is a tab for the acoustic version   for the actual chords:

....go to https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab/co … ds_2184529

Seems the root chords Dm// Dm7 G/// Am/// ////  X2

go for it ..3/4 scale guits are notorious for setting up
any probs post..best of luck

writing/playing your own stuff is a must...original music is what makes music progress
the world is full of great music....play it on your git and enjoy it but never neglect
your own ' desire ' to be original....the track sounds great.. original music can never be

Hello everyone...am new to the forum..i want to do acoustic music..what is the best type of non-electric guitar to buy??
one that is long lasting...

you need a muso friend ( git player ) to help you do this... go to your local music shop
and let him choice one for you...initially ' long lasting' isnt an issue
just get him to advise you on a decent guitar from the outset that you can practice on and start learning

criteria...good action( easy to play )/sensible money ( £50/£100 )

i'm no tab expert but try this
play the A on the third string with the first finger
then if sliding with the 3rd finger play F# on the forth string (4th fret ) immediately slide to fret 7 ( A )
        if sliding with the 4th finger play G on the forth string 5th fret ) immediately slide to fret 7

the other 2 bits are a repeat of the first but on higher frets

usually there should be a start fret ie 4/7 or 5/7
but since its omitted make the decision depending on what finger you'r using to slide with

whoever wrote the tab probably forgot to include it or thought it optional

best of luck buying your new guitar
there's 100's of great guitars to choose from in your budget range
its a very personal subjective thing ..try them all
sauce for the goose is not necessarily sauce for the gander ( as somebody once said )
a lot of gits are poorly set up off the shelf...so dont be be put off by a high action etc
they can all be set up to play great
buy something you really like the look of ( love at first sight ) never fails

take the other wing out and measure its thickness with a micrometer
you'll be surprised what there is lying about for your material
the slot looks about 2/3mm so a piece of dexion might do it it
if not go rummage in your neighbours shed♪♪
anyway best of luck and let us know how you get on


(5 replies, posted in Guitars)

see what you mean..it seems like your best bet would be to contact fender support
and try them
for what its worth if it was me..i would remove the ' wing' from the other side and
make ( or get somebody to make ) a mirrored duplicate..i shouldn't think that would be
to much of a task for a diy'er


(5 replies, posted in Guitars)

if you mean the bolt ..it looks like a 5 or 6mm slotted type which are probably
generic ( ie fender dont make them they just buy them in )
if they aren't the issue a pic would help

need to see a ' CLEAR SHARP PIC ' please

its impossible to determine anything from the photo..cant you ask for a wiring diagram or a least a link to a diagram/drawing
from the guy that built it ?

sorry to hear this ...make sure you post on facebook with a request for sharing

if the amp has 2 inputs plug the triple play into the first input and the the git into the second i/p
then balance the signals to get the required mix blend

if you paid £500 for it ...put it on ebay for £350 with the offer option
if you get no takers ..keep dropping it £25
if was £1000new do the same only start it at £700...ie 70% if its new value
since its an epiphone its not going to be as sort after as much as a gibson
only you know what you paid for it
get it out there on ebay..trick is overprice it to start with and keep dropping

for me the main issue would be the bridge raised at the back ( or dipping at the front )
this probably means there is not enough support for the gauge of string
that has been used on it...definitely don't put  heavier gauge strings on it
and probably go  a gauge lighter to give it a chance  ( if the bridge is just lifting it needs re-gluing )
all the other issues seem superfluous and simple fixes that are not major
DO NOT do any unnecessary mods..keep it as original as possible

ps if you want advice as whether to purchase it or not ..you need
a 3rd party ( luthier / experienced git person ) to inspect it at first hand
to make a proper assessment
