My biggest pet peeve is when some players think that the music sucks if it's easy to play. Not everything has to be Dream Theater to be good!

Plus, start the set with an "easy" song or two. It'll help you get over the sting of adrenaline from stepping on the stage and let you relax and get into the groove. And it's a confidence-booster.

Playing the riff a couple of times might be easy, but now play it with the same precision and feel, trough a song with several riffs for five minutes and play it in time..I fell into that trap myself when I was younger until a buddy of mine put on the drum track and told me It's easy, right? So play the song now..yeah.. fail :P

One of the reasons Holdsworth changed gear so much was because, unfortunately, he didn't sell records. He had a wife and kids, and had to provide for them. Often strapped for cash, he had to sell stuff now and then. An awful reality for such an amazing talent.

His Family should see about making a Movie about Sir Allan Holdsworth, he is in my top 5 Guitarists ever!!! A friend of mine in Los Angeles knew him, and said it was a sad story.... Holdsworth was the favorite guitarist of most know known Guitarists however he died nearly penniless... God bless Sir Allan Holdsworth

The bit about the gold-plated drumkit reminded me of being in Sydney, going into a music shop where they had a SPECIAL EDITION Yamaha DX7 (Five millionth or whatever). The white keys were silver, the black keys were gold....I was contemplating this instrument in bemusement when one of the shop guys came up - we both looked at the instrument in silence for a while and then he said, quietly, with wonderful Aussie succintness ......."Yeah.....fuckin' atrocious ain't it ?"

I always always encourage people to try to tune by ear first, then use the tuner because it will develop the ear.
stickplayer2 2 meses atrás
If you really learn to listen for beat frequencies, tuning by ear reveals the slight inconsistencies in standard guitar tuning (like B sting, which often should be slightly flat to work well with other strings and chords).

I thought he was saying that he'd put reasonably priced $27 strings on guitars for guys who think they need the most expensive gear and then they'd be surprised how good the sound was on strings a third of the price they're used to playing.

No, he claimed $27 gave you great strings at a cheap price but that some people thought they needed way more expensive strings despite not being able to notice any difference.

I eagerly await any and all "What Makes This Song Great?" videos. But these Three Amigo videos are rising the charts rapidly. I love the chatter between these cats (Dave and Rhett) and RB. I've never played a single chord on the guitar - not one. But I love the hell out of these conversations. Great insights. The truth is that I absorb all of Rick's videos. It's easy to be enthused by somebody is so enthusiastic about their craft/ their art.

As a drummer also, I actually find alot of things annoying about drummers, being critical of my own abilities inherently makes me critical of other drummers.; I should add that the concept of being or doing something annoying is completely abstract because what is annoying to one person might be pleasant or endearing to another. Anyways find your own personal style and rock on

I had a good laugh at this. Just a couple hours before watching this I had a delivery from Amazon; 4 clip on tuners and a wireless system. Lol. The wireless system is a cheap one that I wanted for home as I like to walk around the house while I play, I will continue to use cables for gigs. And yes I agree learn how to solder, you can fix all your own stuff.

Lately I have been using Ernie Ball Paradigm strings as when I tried a set I found they last a good long time without much tonal degradation. I typically get about 6 months or more out of a set as far as just practicing and playing. However, I would change my strings before a recording session just to be sure they're as fresh as can be with that new string twang. What do you think of EB's Paradigms? Have you tried them? A good mate of mine uses and swears by Elixirs.

This popped up on my FB memories penned by Bill Bruford today. Maybe it explains why Allan went through so mane changes of equipment. "Allan wasn't easy, but if it was easy it wouldn't have been Allan. Like all creative musicians he was restless and relentless in pursuit of 'the perfect sound', the one that he couldn't get out of his head, the one that would never leave him alone,."

Saw Derek Trucks about 3 years ago at the Ryman in Nashville with the Tedeschi Trucks Band. The crowd was literally on their feet cheering every time he soloed. It was probably the best, most moving, gut level/heart level playing I've ever heard, and I've heard a bunch.

Loved your comments about "it's not the instrument it's the player". I had a friend who was an incredible Strat player. He was driving to a gig and someone rear ended his car and totaled not only his car but also his guitar. It was CRUSHED. So, he got someone to take him home and he borrowed his son's Squire that he bought from a Good Will Store for $9.50. He was not making enough money to have 3 or 4 guitars for back ups but he had nine fifty for his son. He has done a bit of work on it but not much. Tuners, strings, leveled the neck and gave it a severe cleaning. He came back to the tavern where he was playing, plugged his son's turquoise blue Squire into his amp and I promise you, I could not tell the difference. He was no Jeff Beck but for the level that he played at, he was incredible. Your "pet peeve" really made me laugh when I thought of my friend playing his sons Squire!!! Great video. Thanks for the chuckles!!!

I''ve been using Lava Tightrope custom "solderless" cables for years, when I first made them I did have issues but I shortly learned that I was simply not making them right. You have to cut the inside wires to the perfect lengths and push the hard wire in until it snaps and then twist. Soon as I learned how to make them properly they've been going strong for over 3 years on my board and I have TONS of them because I run a Boss ES8 so every pedal has to have 2 cables with 4 jacks total. You are TOTALLY right about your fingers being destroyed! LOL, especially with the lava ones because they give you this chinsy little cutter that you have to use to strip them and then twisting on the gnarled ends will DESTROY your finger tips.

Have you considered that a lot of working guitar players will sometimes find themselves in the position of needing to check the sound around the venue while playing? It certainly happens from time to time on the function/bar circuit. This is why I have a wireless system.

The biggest difference between strings is setting the action and intonation to match the diameter and tension of the strings. So it's important to be consistent with whichever type you use unless you want to setup your guitar with a new brand.

I've been waiting for commentary on the brilliance of Derek Trucks. A mind blowing guitarist with seemingly no ego. Have seen him multiple times in both Allman Brothers Band, DTB and now TTB and his playing just moves you in a way that other guitarists just don't.

This had me howling with laughter! 1st gig we played, we were playing Take It On The Run by REO. When the solo hits, I stepped forward, onto my cord, unplugged it! I started laughing, plugged back in and caught up. I play in church. That plexiglass is VERY important. In most churches, the drums will overpower all other instruments. Love the channel Rick.

I was in a ridiculously low-budget band in the early 80s doing one night stands in dive bars. It was a ton of fun. Fortunately I was the drummer so my stuff pretty much always worked. However, the "electric" guys actually made most of the PA gear including the microphones. More than once the electric guys spent one or more breaks repairing something with a soldering iron - on stage.

My old band opened for a bar gig with a band who hired a sound engineer. They brought in these massive amp stacks, serious gear, then soundchecked for 45 minutes straight, basically played their whole set. The sound engineer was doing his job just fine, he'd go over to their amps and turn them down because it was far too loud for the bar, you could see people visibly upset. 2 minutes later when the sound engineer wasn't looking, the guitarists would sneak up and turn it back up. I remember our band bringing nothing but guitars and just plugging into their gear, letting the sound engineer do everything he needed to. Once our set was finished, I had complete strangers walk up to me saying how we sounded awesome and that they hated the main band.

I had an interesting debate with our drummer about the song 'Time' by PF. I was attempting to explain the fact that drums can be tuned to actual pitches. He had a set of Rototoms, but insisted that I was wrong when I asserted that Dave Maon's drums in the intro are tuned to actual notes.

I saw Derek Trucks with the Allman Brothers 4 times, each time trading solos with Warren Haynes. It was incredible. He was playing insane modal Indian styled scales in the middle of a major blues solo. They were either the opening act, or Tom Petty was the opening act or Dave Matthew’s Band now that I think about it. But this was at the Meadows in Hartford, CT and there is a giant lawn above the seats where most of the concert goers were and most of them were there to drink and smoke and party, but as soon as Derek Trucks would start a solo, they would put the camera on him and he would be on the giant screen for people far away or not sitting right up close....and that entire crowd, most probably not even knowing his name ( this was back in the early and mid 2000’s ) they all stopped what they were doing and started starring at Derek soloing with their jaws on the floor. Me being a guitar player, my friends would say, “ Who the hell is that? I never heard anything like that before “ I would explain he is Derek Trucks, a slide guitar or just guitar prodigy whose Uncle Butch Trucks, was an original member and one of two amazing drummers in the Allman Brothers. My Dad, also a guitarist, saw them live with Duane and said the two drummers really made for an amazing sound even though he said as good as Greg’s amazing singing Southern Rock voice was, Duane Allman’s slide guitar was just out of this world and stole the show. He also said Dickey Bettes and Duane playing together was so good it was hard to believe that were that good live and so synchronized with their harmonies and they soloed differently but both amazing in their own way. They could play the same exact thing and harmonize or play their own solos and sound completely unique. Duane died wayyyy too young. Such a shame. I’m sure he is Derek’s hero as I’ve seen Derek rock many a Duane Allman Skydog shirt many times/

Are wireless cables good to avoid getting shocked from simply touching your equipment? That's what I want it for, fear of shock. Also, Zakk Wylde could have used a wireless during last year's Hendrix Tribute tour, when Zakk would take his guitar deep into every audience, while the roadies acted like telephone poles, holding his 300 foot cable aloft! Wylde man! He even went deep into the balconies like that!

Love this video! I agree with everything you mentioned. I hate capos and tuners on headstock (I use Korg PB02 for years), Wireless guitar systems are nonsense (unless you are Brian May, or Steve Lukather, or Dave Grohl, or somebody like that). I thought I'm to old-fashioned, but I can see now I'm not the only one. Thank you! P.S. I play my bass in church. The only wireless we use is IEM when needed.

Playing with different bands over the years I run across some that can't keep a tempo, especially when they get louder. They get faster the louder they get or get slower when get softer. I'm a drummer who is playing guitar and it drives me crazy. I can't even tap tempo and keep my delay straight with all the different tempos going on. The other thing is watching someone rapping there cable over their shoulder and elbow. Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! And they wonder why their cables don't last. There I feel better. Thanks guys.

I've never played professionally or even unprofessionally just at home but I understand what you're talking about the way that people rap chords it's not a construction cord I always just grab mine give a few inches from the end and then loop it in my hand and feel the twist and that way it's natural and doesn't bind the metal wrapping inside

A wireless on a small stage can be helpful so you can move freely with other players on small stage without worrying about your cables tangling together. The idea players can't tell the difference between the strings they like? A lot of us monster cables because you can take them back to the point of purchase to exchange if they go out and that's a nice perk. Also I've been using them for like 15 years and I've never had them get stuck in anything. Different strokes I guess but some of this stuff doesn't make sense to me. Love the channel regardless ❤

All of this is so true, especially the equip. part. I own six guitars, three of which I gig with (LP Studio, PRS Custom 24, and a Taylor acoustic). The Taylor was the most expensive at $1,800 used, the LP Studio was $900 used, and the PRS Custom 24 was $600 new. All three play amazing and I would take my LP Studio over a standard or custom LP for most applications. That Studio has the best tone and with coil splitting and can get just about any tone I want. Of course a 59' LP Standard would be awesome but I would never take it on the road. Then the part about players wanting the same set up / rig as their favorite player. Never understood why a person would want to sound like another player. I love Hendrix, Page, Beck, Carlton, etc. but I am me and I want to sound like me, not someone else. So bottom line, get halfway decent gear but don't go crazy, get what you need and practice, practice, practice. Develop your own tone and style and go for it.

Speaking of wireless guitar rigs. When I was a kid in the 80s playing in my high school cover band, everyone in the band got a wireless, including the singer w/wireless mic. We played at a house party outside where there was so much space for them to run around, everyone got far enough away from me, the drummer, that the sound delay between us became an issue. No one had thought of that beforehand. I couldn't quite come up with an effective way to motion to them while playing drums to get them to come back to me! It was pretty hilarious.

This is an awesome hang if you’re a guitar the wireless brother would use one in tiny clubs and I’d kid him mercilessly...I also used to use a deluxe reverb and a strat at gigs and he would wheel in 2 Hartke cabs and a head (with a wireless setup)’d see a stack on one side and a small fender on tilt back legs on the other...and we never played loud!

I actually play at a theater in Branson where I stand on a 4x4 platform fora few hours a day . Having the wireless saves some valuable space under my feet. With the cable there I step on it constantly, it will then pull me down and threaten to pitch me off of the platform. I even tried a curly cable. Made it worse. I'm actually more inclined to use a cable when I have more room to move.

I put together some cover bands not too many years ago. I checked out the cover bands playing at Disney Land. One guitar player was doing a solo and actually turned his back on the audience and stood in front of the drummer for literally one minute. I know because after about 10 seconds I started counting. Finally, the lead singer tapped him on the shoulder and got him to turn around and face the audience. This was back in 2013. I was like, Thank You! That was pretty annoying.

I gave up on solderless cables in the 80's after using Belden solderless cables and ends. I couldn't stand them and eventually tried soldering them to keep them from separating all the time. For strings, I always find Fender Bullets last longer because the ends are not wrapped, but encased in a little bullet which prevents them from stretching or unwrapping. They also seemed to stay in tune longer than regular strings. And a hint about not destroying your strings. Before playing wash your hands with soap and water, dry them and then spray them with rubbing alcohol and wipe them off completely. That will take all the oils off your hands and keep you from rusting your strings prematurely.

I'm with Dave on the gold knobs. Performers who constantly tune without muting. And not wiping your guitar down. Those are the main ones for me.

The wireless thing makes more sense if you have been shocked a few times! I thought it was always about mobility, but it makes sense if you have played somewhere that has a half-ass electrical system! Nothing quite like being shocked on the lips by a microphone!

I have a Mary Kaye Strat! Thanks, Rhett, for the shout out cuz it is beautiful! I, too usually think gold is tacky but I shelled out another hundo just cuz that model was so much better looking than the silver.

When I was getting started playing in the late 80s as a 17 yr old my older brother (10 yrs my senior, he played mostly cowboy chords and a few Zeppelin riffs like heartbreaker.. Zeppelin is probably my favorite band so I worshiped him as a 7 yr old for playing just basic stuff) had some super talented friends, one of which became a mentor to me. Gave me my first guitar and had me promise to "not let it collect dust' I didn't and my brother whom I was living with wouldn't help me learn, he'd make up some excuse. He was afraid I'd learn and surpass him. In spite of that I did that anyway. In a nutshell he can't get along with anyone for long and I moved to Miami where my mom had just gotten a good job managing apartments through a woman who had a son a year younger than me Mark. He was learning to play and subscribed to magazines and had tabs , I bought "the guitar handbook" and my estranged brothers friend would visit as we'd become friends. I'd known him my whole life so he was more of a brother to me than to me than my actual brother was. He'd show me stuff, answer questions, generally look out for me as I jumped the hurdles we do along the way. Mark and I became friends but I realized that he was passionate about music, but tone deaf. On top of that he was rhythmically challenged, couldn't play in time. He didn't notice, but through him I met a few other kids and we all noticed but although he knew he couldn't sing, he couldn't be convinced about his timing. So he would say things like "I'm saving up for a floyd rose and then a Marshall stack with a boss pedal board with ...and I'm going to get an Ibanez this or a bc Rich guitar and change pick-ups." All the while he wasn't improving as a guitar player. He thought the better the equipment the better the musician. I didn't know half of what he did about gear but I practiced constantly. He learned songs I couldn't play yet, but he would play the right notes , from tab, but his timing was everywhere. I had a Headway (strat style, chinese I think) guitar and I ran it through my stereo clean cause I had no amp. I got a guitar before the amp and traded my first guitar for a Digitech processor with a peddle board and a cool looping effect. The distortion sounded like a buzzsaw but I at least had it. So I never cared about gear and tone , I cared about learning. So my peeve is putting gear including the guitar ahead of learning to actually play well. Of course you don't want to start with a guitar that sucks and lose interest, or one with no truss rod that is more of a toy. But within reason I think learning to play on like Rhett said a Squier Affinity is fine with a practice amp, rather than be an encyclopedia of gear knowledge and still suck. I'm finished, I'm going to practice ✌️🎸☮️💖🙏🎸

On the Allan Holdsworth comment: It's basically become the same situation you've seen for years in Gypsy Jazz guitar -- Django's style is essentially the basis of the entire sound, but thousands of players now exist within that genre who emulate him while still developing their own unique voice. I think the same can be said about players who have taken substantial influence from Holdsworth in their soloing style, such as Tim Miller, early Alex Machacek, Paul Masvidal, Fredrik Thordendal, Derryl Gabel, etc. When a player like Holdsworth is so innovative that their style births an entire subgenre, a lot of amazing players within that movement get dismissed as clones because people are too lazy to truly listen and discover what makes them unique.

Totally agree, a new genre under Holdsworth is a good thing for the growth of guitar. Then there is also EVH, massively influenced by Holdsworth, changed hard-rock guitar forever. Allen was The Big Boss, with an imagination far beyond.

I like certain strings because they have the tone I want when new, like not too bright. However, after about a week to a couple of days most string end up sounding the same.

To me, and no hate towards you guys because you touched on this, my biggest pet peeve is guitar guys who bash other guitar guys for trying to emulate someone else’s rig. I think it’s pretty cool for someone who can afford it to put together EVH’s rig from VH1. Even though you’ll never sound just like him, it’s so cool to be able to afford to do it and to have the knowledge to do so. And also, you’ll never capture his tone, but you might stumble across your own along the way.

Monster cables also has problems like that for retro game consoles. The part that goes into the system is generally okay, but the component cable ends that plug into your TV or upscaler have a deathgrip and get stuck in the plug and eventually break. The only Monster cable I own is a 3.5mm cord for connecting my tablet to an amp or monitors. Fits perfectly.

I just removed the SNARKS from my guitars in reverence to Rick! I played with a guy years ago who had to change his strings after every gig because there would be actual RUST dripping off the strings by the end of the gig! I've never seen anything like it!

I took a lesson with Jeff Hamilton years ago and we talked about his live recording on Ray Brown Trio Bam Bam Bam. I said how much I loved his sound on the recording as we were talking about calf skin heads and different woods etc... he then told me that he played that gig on plastic Remo heads and a Remo synthetic drum kit. Then he said "just goes to show you, you take your sound with you".

Rick, try using ronsonol lighter fluid to wipe down strings before abs after your friends play your guitars. Nothing kills strings more than when two different peoples sweat and oils combine.

2yrs later, my pet peeve still is, the way some guitarists shake the neck of the guitar back and forth to get vibrato instead of developing the skills to use their fingers

Haha - I once thought I have to go wireless, because you'd feel "free". It worked well until "the" one gig, where a radio station came on my Mesa Boogie. Everytime, jwhrn I wanted to change guitar I had to put the wireless on standby and than the Radio from the bar next to us transmitted on the same signal as my wireless - it only had one channel ;-). Thank god - I'm back to cable.

Hey Rick, since you guys were talking about it indirectly, how often should you change your strings?

This video made me laugh! I learned an important lesson about gear versus practice. Years ago I decided to shoot competitive sporting clays. I fantasized about owning a Krieghoff shotgun ($$$). I thought I was a pretty good shooter. After being embarrassed at my first several competitions I discovered I had been shooting with some of the top shooters in the country. I realized I needed to practice and be a better shooter before justifying such an expensive gun. Same with guitars. I am blessed to afford nice gear, nothing crazy, but I have been studying and practicing instead of lusting after some crazy classic equipment. Great discussion…

This was a fun episode. You guys need to do it again! My pet peeves: relict guitars! Seriously! I don't get it. It's like guys who would smash beautiful guitars on stage! I hated It. I get it! Old guitars are uber expenses. Still hate it! #2 Brown guitars! What is it with men and brown guitars? Black I get but Brown!? It's like the man cave of guitars. Schecter has brown guitar that I really like they call cats eye. No, it's brown. Would be way cooler if it was cat's eye that is more brown with nice golden amber in it. #3 why is it guitarists can't distinguish a tone ? from sound ? I mean, I ask how does Gilmour get that massive sound that fills a stadium and it's like I'm speaking chinese. Guess, I should ask, what effects does he use. Too me, tone and sound are 2 different things, aren't they! #4 Why is it necessary for some guitarists to cram in as many notes in 2 minute solo as humanly possible? Dang show off!! #5 why will no one answer my question about headstocks? I have asked few guys about reverse headstocks not being way guitars should be made. I mean, pianos are set up with bass to treble being shorter as you move up scale so why not headstocks? Hey Rhett, you kind of touched on it on recent video @ Righteous Guitars, very cool store btw. When you were talking about scale lengths. Longer scale lengths have more tension so wouldn't reverse headstocks make tuning and playing easier? Just askin''. I mean, Jimi did it first, didn't he. Maybe that's why? I don't know. Like I said, just askin'! Anyway, all I got! Cheerz! ✌out & Stay Chique! Guitar Chique! 😎. Oh, as you can guess, I'm lady guitar player!!!

Not just guitarists, but any musician that thinks they have to play constantly during a song. Sometimes there are parts when you need to drop out. There are no dynamics if everyone is playing all the time.

In my opinion, some guitars are for looking at, and some guitars are meant for a gig in a bar with smoke and beer flowing. I really like a bar king. They wind up sounding the best to me. Sound doesn't care if it comes from a $6000 guitar or a $300 guitar. My favorite is a LP Special flat top with paint so you can't see the wood and has great P90's. Probably the same with a basic Tele. No quilted or burle or flame tops.

I saw a band in a night club. The singer was also the guitarist using wireless gear. He went to the toilet in the middle of a song & kept singing & playing. The rest of the band slowly got quieter and we all heard this guy singing & playing to the sound of him taking a piss. Bathroom acoustics just made it so much better. The rest of the band started playing again when he came out. Very funny. I don't know if it was planned or just a happy accident.

Actually our drums are behind plexiglas in my church. And even then hes pretty loud. But I think that's because they're not mixed right up in the sound booth. The most annoying thing is you can barely hear the lead worship singer. And you can't hear the harmony singers at all.
