I know this is a bit late for kool dude but for those in Mumbai (esp South Mumbai) the best place to locate a teacher is at Furtados in Dhobi Talao. For Piano and Violin, try Melhi Metha's Music Academy at Kemp's Corner.

Hi All - I plan to start learning some guitar - primarily inspired by a lot of rock i listen to and the occasional john mayer live stuff. My luck with learning guitars has not been so good, as I started learning twice and shifted with 10-15 days to a different city. It has been 4 years now, since my last attempt and I gave the heavily out of tune giVson (not gibson!!) a shot, but somehow got frustrated as acoustics take a lot of work. I do know that electrics are easier for beginners and keep you motivated as results come out faster. Also with work taking priority, i plan to learn myself and mostly play some songs i like

Need suggestions on buying a good beginner electric - something which I can just go and pickup from the store as I am not sure if I can try out guitars (have zero skills ) Is the yamaha pacifica 012 or 112 a good first choice or should I look at something like the ibanez 170dx. Also i am guessing I need an amp (marshall?). What would this setup cost me?

Whats a good store in bangy - reynolds I keep hearing a lot about?

TIA for any advice.

Default Guitars+Tube amps+Recording=Trouble?

Hello fellow guitarists,

This is my current rig:-

Guitars-
1.Ibanez RG Prestige with Dimarzio Evo pickups.
2.Tansen Jackson-copy with EMG pickups.
3.Epiphone LP copy
4.Some local bass guitar with EMG pickups.

Amplifier-
Laney LC15R tube amplifier modified to give a serial effects loop and jensen speakers.
A DIY bass amp.

Effects and stage rig-
Boss GT-8 for the guitar
Korg AX10 for the Bass

Now, I use the amplifier for practice and more than happy with it. I just cant record with it. I dont want to invest in a good microphone unless im sure thats the only solution. Is it? Whats the easiest way to record music? Do the multiple input soundcards work as well as they claim? Or is a mixer with the output to a computer the best way to go? Is there any way to reduce the volume on the amp but still get maximum overdrive?

On a seperate note, I would love to hear recomendations on the setup for listening to music. Though I'd prefer buying them, DIY is an option as well. My knowledge on Speakers and Amplifiers outside the guitar world is extremely limited. My budget for the whole setup is one lakh. And if i save enought from it, I would get myself a new guitar and a headphone amplifier.

Thank you
Arvind

PS-I dont mind the music system coloring the music a little. I prefer things a bit warm.

Dude have you checked out "Line 6" amps? They sound really great (especially if you play rock and metal) come loaded with distortion, effects, have an audio out for recording your stuff and audio inn for jamming with your favorite music. the best part is that the're not very expensive either.

I have a line 6 spider iii (15 watts) with my Dean MLX guitar and am very happy with the sound and the effects.

Oh, I have tried those amps and they are pretty good. But even the basic tube amps are leagues ahead with the overdriven sound. The downside is that you would need to play it with the volume pretty high and thats a big problem for most people. Go to the local music store and try them out, you wont play anything else!

Thats true regarding the volume problem, Marshall's are pretty good for room practise.

Line 6 & Peavey are way too loud.

I had to settle for a Marshall MG10CD due to the high volume problem.
But the amp is great for room practise. The overdrive effect it has is pretty good. I have an Ibanez GRG270 axe also.

Only problem is i'm way too a novice to fully utilise the capabilities and sounds the two combined can give out. Practising, practising and practising.

the Line 6 amp is pretty loud. I play at just 10% of the volume and it shakes up my neighbors. However if you want quiet room practice then you can attach your headphones to it and jam at anytime of the day or night!
