ChrisH Edit: This thread is going to be used as the place for all beginners questions. I had some trouble moving the threads around, so after all that, here it what I have come up with...editting this post. I am sorry about that, I usually don't touch anyones posts. Anyway the point of this thread is for those with seemingly obvious questions to be asked in here. Hel I know I ask a lot of no-brainers, and there is no real thread for them, so consider this it. Posts that fit in here: What guitar/amp should I buy? How much should I spend? What makes a good guitar? What scales should I practice? What songs should I learn? *post clips of your playing to be constructively critisized* etc. So please, feel free to use this thread! And if threads randomly go missing form the forum, it is probably because I merged them in here. Any problems? PM me, or any of the other guys around ehre, and I am sure they will help you out. Some handy resources: Nickeax has a website: www.guitaraustralia.com He's also a handy dude to ask questions to, and knows his gear pretty well. DJ Fuson is pretty much a guru of production. Ask him about Ableton and other home recording stuff. Shredder likes his japanese guitars, anything you want to know about ibanez and the likes, hit him up. Willybomb is pretty knowledgable in most areas of musial theory and is also a guitar teacher, so questions relating to theory will most likely end up in his lap. Comma knows electronic production back to front. Synth's and Midi's to computer based sound processing, he has it under control. I don't mean to sign these guys up, but to be honest they know their stuff, so post in here and I am sure someone will help you out! Cheers, Chris Hey Guys, I got a guitar a few months back, Guitar accoustic with pickup/onboard tuner, Ashton, was $489. http://www.ashtonmusic.com.au/productView.asp?productID=87 Thats the one. Now, The bridge has got a big crack in it, i took it back, they offered to replace it, i then saw this beauty. http://www.ibanez.co.jp/products/ag...124&color=CL01&year=2008&cat_id=3&series_id=7 Gotta be the best looking acoustic i've ever seen! The shop will let me have the $489 in credit, but i can't decide if i want to put another $400 on top for the Ibanez (It's $899 at the store). Or just get the same Ashton again. Can anyone help me choose?
