To me, there is nothing that compares to the tone of an original Telecaster. The music I was brought up on (lots of grand old opry) and having been a cello player are probably the reasons why. Such a smooth, clear sound.

I have a guitar that sat around for about 5 or so years until last year when I decided to do something with it. I know about 6 cords right now. basically working the finger memory thing and trying out some songs I like from church currently.

The most frustrating thing right now is that I can't sing along while I play even though I know all the words... Ughh.. Something about coordinating words with a song I am still using my brain to learn to play... Can't think to sing and think to play simultaneously.

Yeah that's still super hard for me to do. I think you need to get your playing down to where it's second nature before singing can happen. I can play and sing Thinking Out Loud but that's about it so far. Every time I try to sing my strumming gets all out of whack, almost like I strum for each word, weird.

singing and playing at the same time can be tough for some people. Even Lady Gaga has a backtrack.

And hell, most people can't think and talk at the same time......

Lets look at it this way, you already know 50% more chords then the Ramones ever did and they are in the rock and roll hall of fame! And they had to have a singer that didn't play because none of them could do it and play at the same time.

I never considered the Ramones worthy of much let alone the rock and roll hall of fame. But there are a lot of people in the hall of fame that don't belong there.

hey name another band that wrote 200 songs with four chords and could play all of them in a 90 minute show!

Maybe not 200 songs, but AC DC and the Rolling Stones are both masters of rearranging the same chords and coming up with new stuff.

I play a twelve string Rickenbacker air guitar, and many who have heard me say I sound just like Roger McGuinn and Tom Petty!

Damn i forgot all about this! It was a Tele, kind of. It had what looked like generic Humbuckers on it and some cheap ass strings. The face plate was homemade and it had a non-original pick-up switch from a hardware store. Worst of all it had been stored in what is essentially an unheated barn for 35 years. The bridge adjusters were all f-ed up and a couple of tuners were bent to 5hit. The body and the neck were pretty much all that was original. I offered her $200 and she laughed. Then i laughed and we all had a good laugh together. I was being quite generous in my estimation. She said a pawn shop offered her $1500. Bull5hit. I'd jump on that myself. $1500 for a tele body that has to be warped and a neck that has to be bent after being stored in a barn with the cows for 35 years? I was surprised it didn't have bird5hit stains on it. At least they stored it in a case. Wasn't even a Fender case! I would have given her more for that!

Meh. Those two are merely rookies. Check this out if you want to hear a 12 string really played to its capacity. Ralph Towner "Spirit Lake"

Well, my buddy came up with the idea for us to both use these doubleneck bass/guitar in a heavy sludge band. So, I found the jag body and neck on craigslist for $50. Then I went to guitar center to buy a jaguar bass, and while I was there, I ran into this really good carpenter I hadnt seen in five years.

He was like "Whats up Woodie? buying a bass?" I was like "yeah... And I need you to cut it in half for me."

So he cut it and glued it. I routed it, and bondo'd it. The wiring was the hardest part. There was bleed through from both guitars. When I got it wired up, I took it apart and threw a few coats of flat black, then sprayed a few coats of oil poly. Then sanded it down to 2000 grit and polished it. For the gap in between the two pickgaurds, I melted crayons with a soldering iron and scraped it, and brushed some poly on the wax. Hour wise... I'd say I put about 20 hours into it, but it took a couple months.

I broke the headstock off my les paul a couple times too. I glued it back on, and clamped it. Sanded the head and neck all the way to the body, sprayed flat black spraypaint on it, and finished it with ten or so coats of automotive clear coat in a spray can, and polished it the same way. Worked rather well.
