Guitar Central / How Much of a Guitar Geek Are You? A Discussion
« Last post by lolwat on Today at 09:59:39 PM »
Inspired by the seemingly endless barrage of questions from newbie guitarists on Facebook groups such as pinoy Pedalboards, that I force myself to answer regularly.

Electrified guitar being a highly technology-driven field, it is often expected of any self-respecting guitar player, hobbyist or otherwise, to have basic servicing skills (restringing, action and intonation adjustment, neck relief, etc.) as well as a certain degree of comprehension as to what makes our beloved equipment "tick."

Very few people are willing to show such a "geeky" side to their personality for fear of rejection or alienation, even among other players. This thread, then, is your chance to do so freely.

Let me start.

If I were to rank myself on a scale from 0 to 10, I'd give myself a solid 8.

Reasons:

I am capable of the above-mentioned basic servicing skills, save for processes requiring the experience and tools of a proper guitar tech or luthier (refret, fret level, building from scratch, etc.). I have lost hours of my life reading and learning about the physics behind the guitar's pickups and controls, as well as analog effects and amplifier circuits, all in the name of penny pinching ("if you knew how to fix guitars and build effects yourself, you'd save a lot of money!" ...or so my parents think lol). I have yet to build my own amplifier from scratch, but time and budget permitting, I'd like to try it out soon enough (main issues are sourcing the correct transformers and chassis).

Thanks to the information I've accumulated over time, I've turned my hobby into an informal business, with some friends commissioning to build certain effects that otherwise would be inexistent, or priced too high to be accessible. As mentioned above, I also dedicate a bit of my personal time answering beginners' questions, always trying my best to communicate the fundamental principles of electric guitar operation in the simplest possible way.

My reason for not giving myself full marks is that I am still agnostic as to what makes a guitar sound good. At least according to Physics-oriented luthiers like Gelvin Guitars, wood species don't really change the sound of a guitar, because wood by nature is very inconsistent from sample to sample. On the other hand, so many musicians I respect are proponents of tone wood, so I am not keen on dismissing their opinions completely.

I'd love to hear your "guitar geek" story.

Looks, I'd go with gold, lalo kung classic color yung gitara. Durability, chrome siguro.

In the end though, maluluma at maluluma ang lahat ng bagay na madalas gamitin.

Nice, May mga nag sabi na ang lakas nga daw sa First row meron din iba sabi malakas pero parang muddy, yung iba sabi ang linaw daw. Ako kasi nasa Orchestra ako okay naman.

Anyway I will take your word for it, question lang monitor speakers ba yung nasa edge ng stage or part din ng PA yun?

No idea. Looks like part ng PA system nila. They do run a high tech sound system pag live.

My word aint worth anything. I just enjoyed the show and di ko na inabala sarili ko sa pagkilatis bits of pieces ng mg gamit nila or kung ano pa man nega comment regarding sound. Hahaha! Hope you enjoyed it as well. :)

Some people who attended the DT manila concert said that the first row sound of the whole band is kinda muddy, other VIP audience have said they can't here JP at all not even his monitor amps.

same with MR Big. I was on the 4th row thinking id get the best sound visual but man it was ear piercing and i couldnt hear the vocals properly. The advent of IEM really made big gigs more portable, on the flip side the FOH seemed to have stayed still.

Eto pwesto ko nun gabi na yun. ok naman output ni jp sa spot na yan kahit wala speakers naka tutok sa audience.

It may have something to do with the venue's sound system placement, etc pang teknikal.

Meh, what do i know diba? Saka ko na pproblemahin yan pag tutugtog nko ng ganyang kalaki. Lol
