Preference changes
« on: September 28, 2017, 11:11:23 AM »
Hi can you share your changes in preferences over the years, regarding almost anything guitar-related. These may be attributed to your growing musical experience, age, health, or some life-changing moment lol

For example sa akin:
-sa guitar body and fretboard color when i was just starting playing around 15 years ago i gravitated towards dark or reddish colors, pero lately i dont know im falling in love with whitish or bluish bodies tapos maple boards, like the ibanez rg370ahmz .
-tone-wise i often went for boogie-y tones but lately parang marshall-y naman
-or dati college girls tapos ngayon mga milfs na jk

I used to think of myself as a Strat guy but I was bitten by the Les Paul bug this year. Lol.

Dati...wala akong pakialam sa neck shape pero after ko masubukan yung Soft-V neck...gusto ko lahat ng gitara ko ganun ang neck profile (or something close to it).
Its not the kill, Its the thrill of the chase...

I just discovered that its not the thickness of the neck but the scale of the guitar that made a lot of difference in my playing. And yeah I prefer a chunky neck and a Gibson scale.

Dati inaasam-asam ko ang mga high end guitars. Eh dahil sa hanggang ngayon wala naman ako pambili, naniniwala na ako sa "Tone is in the fingers"  :-\

Ayaw na ayaw ko sa telecaster dati. Napapangitan kasi ako sa headstock. Ngayon hindi na masyado.

Dati nung highschool gusto ko yung mga weird shaped na gitara, mas mukhang kakaiba mas okay, mas madaming sticker mas ok, mas mukhang palakol mas masaya, kung nung high school lumabas yung rj armalite na gitara baka nagkaroon ako nun eh hahahaha.

Ngayon hindi na syempre, gusto ko na yung gitara the way it is supposed to look. Tapos nagki-cringe ako sa mga guitar taste ko noon haha.

Back then, i prefer “floyded” guitars. Now, i dig tune-o-matics and fixed bridges.

dati:
- pointy guitars
- high gain
- jazz iii picks, yung maliit
- 24 frets

ngayon:
- mas gusto ko yung curvy na gitara parang strat's curve  :wink:
- low to mid gain na lang. siguro paminsang high gain chug.
- hindi ko na kayang hawakan yung jazz iii picks hahaha
- na-realize kong hindi ko naman nagagamit yung 24th fret so mas ok na sa kin yung 22 or 21, though ginagamay ko pa yung 21. mas swak siguro yung 22. hehehe
Yeah man! I'm gonna put on some 2" steel cables so I can tune to drop Z- flat, 17 octaves down. You won't recognize a single note, it'll be awesome duuuude!!!

dati I thought i'd never be able to play guitar without having a "professional" setup

now, I just do the setup myself. really don't care about the action too...im now above 2mm (over the 14th fret) on both my guitars and use lighter .10s on standard tuning. I just raise that thing until I hear no buzz plugged or unplugged. the lighter gauge helps in making it easy to play.

I've had this recent habit na I'd rotate a guitar im playing every two weeks. For the last two weeks I've been unto my tele everyday and now sa PRS SE naman (with that shorter scale), guess what, I think got used to the tele, and the SE  doesn't feel familiar anymore. Sasabihin ko its all about dynamics and adaptation (In the way you wanna enjoy the playing and the sounds you wanna hear)

Same experience for me recently. Im still recovering from tendinitis at sa Ibby ako napadalas mag-chromatic spider exercise recently. Nung one time na SE ginamit ko parang di ko feel.
