I wanted to let every one know that we wil be launching a new web site. The web site will be called jampages.com and will be the first online or print magazine designed specifically for the beginner and intermediate Electric, Acoustic and Bass guitar player.
It will be filled with easy to understand lessons, articles and other cool effective interactive learning tools. It will have "Song Surgery" which will disect and examine songs and their structure, "Sound Like Your Hero" a section dedicated to showing people how their hero's get their sound, "Lick Challange" where you can learn different riffs and much, much more!
For the past five years Rock House has been developing and cultivating an army of new players accross the world and now through jampages you will all have your own magazine with easy to understand and relevant content that suits your level of play.
We have been working with several of your fellow community members in a focus group on helping develop this web site. Nothing like haveing the people who will use it help develop it.
jampages.com will be launching very soon, I'll keep you posted.
In a nut shell here’s what it comes down to. Tone, it seems to be what we’re after. Be prepared to go through several dozen brands of strings and string gages. What works for one guitarist may not give you the tone you are looking for. Your set up may be different in several ways; you may have a different guitar, different pick ups, different amp or even different pedals or effects.
There are no easy answers for strings. So I’ll let you do some reading about them. Here’s a couple of links that may be helpful to you. Check out the FAQs at the GHS web site. There is some good basic information there. The other site I recommend looking at is Professor String . You could spend the better part of a couple days reading what’s on their site, but you’ll get so much info your brain will explode.
Good luck and don’t get too wound up.
