Hello ... I have this guitar ... Squier Affinity Series Special Strat Electric
And I have this amp ... Blackstar LT-ECHO 10 10W Guitar Combo Amplifier
I've been trying to match the sound of the guitar in the song "Mr Jones", but I can't seem to duplicate it. Do I have the right amp and guitar to do so? Or no? If so what setting should I have them on? Thank you for reading my post.
Help me out -- I really want an Epiphone Casino like the Beatles played. However, I cannot afford a vintage model from that era and I hear reports that the new Casinos have erratic build quality.
What hollow body guitars are out there that are similar to the Casino?
For better or worse, I have a rather terrible memory for musical lines. If I haven't played it recently, I'll need to look at a TAB or notation for a run through before it's in my fingers and bouncing around my head. Therefore, while I wouldn't really call myself an improviser by nature I also seldom stick to the set script. What I do more than anything is based on the context of the note I'm playing. In other words, what came before and what I'm hearing will come next. I tired for a long time to learn patterns and boxes and diagonals, etc. before I finally realized I could learn better by what I am hearing. Riffs and licks escape my memory quickly so I would be unable to string together one, two or several unless you gave me time to play them first before you said, "Go!"
