Hay naku. Sakit yan ng karamihan dito kasi. The infamous gear wars. There will come a time when one will ultimately say, "Screw GAS, I just wanna play!" because as much as we love guitar equipment (I used to be one of the biggest boutique freaks here), it won't matter much if we don't start using our gear to play music that is meaningful to us. But on the other hand, we need at least decent to good sounding equipment to be able to convey our musical messages with enough clarity.

May this guide lessen the equipment-related wars here! Please lang! Hehe :)

Yeah. I love music more than I love gear. As long as you have decent gear, it's all just supposed to be fun, not a race or competition against others. If I'm gonna buy gear that's worth more than the car I carry it in, I better be the best damn guitar player that my wife will ever see! LOL. But I'm not so I just try to be the best version of myself. ;-)

Naw, man. Where's the fun in that?  :lol:
Me, I'm just compensating my guitardedness with nice gear.  :lol: But I promise myself that I'll spend more time woodshedding and try to stick with it. Promise.

Agreed! Masarap talaga in the end kapag yung gear mo nacacapture ung musical ideas and passion mo within and it's brought forth into existence! But again, dapat you have musical ideas and passion from the start and the intention of bringing those into reality which the gear will enhance.

Masarap talaga mag-Gas pero I find more inspiration when I experience musical and technical improvement by the second. No gear acquisition can beat that. At least for my purposes as an artist. It is more fulfilling and lasting. Then comes the gear that will provide better delivery.

Nice guide.  And you might like to add that people should not easily be offended when people comment about technique, guitars, gears or their idols.  I for one once were easily offended :lol:.  We might blurt out unwanted and unwarranted posts just because we think a comment is an attack when upon better inspection it is not.

Idol, you are the man.

Wish I could nominate you for the Supreme Court. But you have to be a lawyer... Wait, it's still not too late. One of my best students is a 50 year old principal at a public elementary school. She performed very well at the law school where I teach.

Congrats on the sticky.

9. When someone makes a personal attack, puts down, or insults a fellow member, or questions their credibility, simply for disagreeing or sharing a contrary opinion, that is not cool and likely against the rules. Proper warnings/sanctions should be given immediately and applied consistently.


question lang, how about the ones who just makes fun of the thread? people who just makes fun of newbies/threads and make posts that instead of helping out someone, they just directly make fun of them? a lot of them are the members who have been here a long time with 1000+ posts  :-) i met some forumers here when trading and such, they really say na palakasan dito  :-)

OK lang siguro yung kaunting patawa para medyo interesting yung thread kasi minsan talagang merong mga tanong especially tayong mga newbie na medyo nonsense kaya nagiging target tayo ng pangaalaska kaya dapat medyo open-minded tayo. Ang hindi maganda yung mga offensive at sobra nang panglalait at mga name calling na di na kanaisnais.

you can insult guitarists here i nthere, but one thing's for sure, there is no better guitarist than Chuck Norris.

for he can kill two picks with one note.

when he plays guitar he doesn't pick the note, the note itself plays upon Chuck Norris' presence.

when Chuck Norris plays the guitar, he doesn't need scales and picking to shred. His bare hands turn guitars into sawdust.

on his birthday, Chuck Norris chooses one lucky guitarist to be thrown into the sun.

Chuck Norris once put a turtle inside a blender, we now know the turtle's fragments as Tortex picks.

I think everyone will agree on what I will type here, and this not only applies to GC but to the entire Philmusic world:
