Just a pain in the *** always needing an allen key to tune. Think I might devise a way to keep one attached to my headstock somehow. They're wayyyy too easy to lose.

There ya go. I have one on my Jackson, though I never use it. I just keep an allen wrench set in my case at all times.

Danke.

Though I think I may make something myself. I don't feel like putting holes in my Carvin.

New guitar day! Previous owner John Lennon'd the hell out of this Casino. Gold Grovers and a tailpiece off of a Rickenbacker. Frets have been leveled and polished. Smooth as butter.

Sorry I don't have a picture I put the guitar in a storage unit after I gave up.

I got a mightymite head and body from my uncle who was going to make it into a vanhalen replica. I have never put a neck in a guitar so I let my friend do it (who has done it a couple times) and we lined the neck up right but when we drilled it in the neck moved to the left side of the body and when we put strings on it the E string hangs off the fret board. I took it to a guitar store and the guy was no help.

Can you drill the neck twice?

Very nice Casino, Shakey.

Some pictures I shot yesterday of my Les Paul and Stratocaster (they're for sale if anyone is interested):

You can try glueing dowels into the holes to fill them and then re drill it.

Was at a jam session tonight with a couple friends. I'm so not used to playing with other people I felt lost lol. My issue is, I can't just jump in. I guess that'll come with time but it still feels awkward.

It's all about locking into whatever rhythm they're jamming to...as well as managing the panic that comes with improvising, lol. Some people suggest you imagine your guitar as a snare drum - whatever beat you would play on that snare to jam with the music, is the rhythm/phrasing you should be playing through your guitar. I suggest practicing with backing tracks, that lets you learn and experiment with different phrasings without the pressure of other people.

YouTube has backing tracks from BB King to Iron Maiden to Buckethead - you're bound to find something that perks your ear up and keeps you excited to practice.

Gotta get passed that. Jamming to backing tracks (as recommended) is a great way to start and not feel nervous. But, eventually, you're going to have to just break out of that shell and work with others to create a full, cohesive sound. You'll be much happier when you're able to pick up the key of a song and then just go at it. Some of my favorite moments of playing have been had while just jamming out.

It's kind of like learning your instrument over again, on an entirely new level. Rather than reciting music, you're doing nothing other then channeling your energy through your guitar, doing nothing other than expressing yourself at that very moment. It's a wonderful feeling when you can do it efficiently.

This. Never got to REALLY jam with people once I got competent enough at playing and over the past month it's been really refreshing. Especially with this drummer. Dude can play anything and his change ups are both fantastic and completely debilitating at the same time lol. It's fun though. I have to force myself into the rhythm, even if I sound like ****, just to get used to things.

Improvising is something I've always been good at, but I think the true beauty comes with not just pouring your soul into your guitar. That's only half of it. The other half is complimenting everyone else, locking into that groove and creating something that isn't just face-melting but pulses with energy and feels like a living, breathing, organic creation.

That's what I'm getting at. You're going to be playing along with others, but your expression comes out of that mood every single time. It's an entirely new, immersive atmosphere to be playing in and it helps you reach to your very core to express whatever it is you're feeling at that time (what you're feeling at the time is almost entirely the mood being created by the other band members).

So, what I'm trying to say, Corbin...

GET SOME RECORDINGS UP.
