I always wanted a Rickenbacker because of my love for the Beatles and 60's rock. However, they are very expensive and it's impossible to get a used one nowadays.

Anyone have one or play them? What do you think about them? Someday I might get a 12 string electric.

At Christmas time I was at my mom's house and she has a new turntable(record player) with combo cd and cassette player.

For fun I played my kids some of mine and my brother's old records on the turntable. They were amazed they never saw a record player before. But I was immediately struck by how warm the records sounded with all the cracks and background hisses. I think we played a 44 year old Beatles record from older brother.

I have my old records but no turntable. I might go and buy a turntabble. In Ann Arbor, MI near where I live they have several vinyl record stores for used and new records. I miss all the old sounds and the art work of records.

Anyone else miss records or am I just too old?

This is probably a silly question but.... I know arpeggios are the notes of chords and you can play them all over the neck.

Is there an interesting way or pattern to play them or is it something I need to just repeat and play faster and see what happens?

It seems if I play (ex. E major arpeggios) it sounds good if I do them fast or throw in other notes. I guess this is an obvious question but are there interesting arpeggio patterns or is it a matter just playing until something sounds good?

This site is like the United Nations. People from all over the world! Its amazing how diverse the background of the instructors and the members are.

This site could usher in world peace united under the guitar!

Seriously, though I would like to thank everyone for putting their lessons up in English. It must be hard to not only come up with great lessons but also write and speak them in english, if it is your second language.

I am the typical American I can only speak english. So I want to thank all the instructors and contributors who have english as a second language. Thanks Kris for bringing people together and using english as a sort of universal communication device.

I am a new member and I am totally in love with this site. So much information for the price. I am 43 and stopped playing guitar for about 20 years because I lost interest and never learned any songs. Its exciting to be reliving my younger dreams of rocking out. I have memorized a couple of Gabriel's lessons on 80's hard rock and blues rythym and tabbed many others but haven't memorized them.

I love Jimmy Page and the White Stripes and all hard rock in general.

Here is an idea I had, to memorize all the notes on the fretboard. I tried to go fret by fret and memorize all six notes but it was too much for my brain. Now, I am memorizing each note in the chromatic scale - one at a time. For example: I memorized all the F# notes from frets 0 to 11 (there is six obviously) and they repeat in same positions from fret 12 on. I play a little riff or bit of a scale at each F#, starting and ending on the F#. This makes my fooling around sound decent because all the F#'s make my lame improvisation tie together and sound in harmony. This only takes a few second and I can easily remember each spot for the F#. Then it hit me do this for all twelve notes and I will have a decent grasp of where each note is. I am going in order andf have done the G note and then on to G# etc.

This is probably obvious to most people but it is really helping me, along with memorizing scales, to have more fun with the guitar.

Anyways, thanks to all who post and the instructors who make this an invaluable tool for learning guitar.
