    It doesn't really matter what you buy if you are just starting out. Until you really commit to it, start small
    My setup:

    Zero asylum 7.5
    Independent rde/silver
    Bones Reds
    Spitfire wheels
    Shorty's 1' hardware

    If anyone still goes here,

    My wrist is always at an awkward and uncomfortable position when im playing (the wrist on my fretting hand obviously),and it usually hurts when im done, so what is the proper position for your wrist?

    your wrist should be pretty much straight when you're playing, make sure your elbow is not glued to your body and your fingers are pressing sort of vertically on the strings

    Can you explain that gain? Straight as in straight horizontal, or vertical, and what do you mean vertical fingers?

    blah

    i took some pics of my own wrist i think you can understand it better like this:
    my wrist from the front, notice how it is pretty much straight from this angle



    and my wrist from the side, also pretty much straight



    and the way your fingers should be pressing on the strings, if you do this part right, your wrist should align automatically. your fingers should always be curved like that and pressing vertically on the strings, this way you get speed, strength and accuracy, because if you tend to flatten your fingers, you will be sloppy, you will cover up strings that you don't want to and your hand will hurt more because you are doing a useless effort.



    and finally, you must not lean your elbow against your body while you're playing, it should be somewhere around 8 inches away from your body and pretty much in that place all the time (you can vary it just a little depending on how far up/down the neck you are with your hand). this also helps keep your wrist nice and straight.


    sorry for the crappy quality and inverted pictures, my phone is crap. hope this helps, have fun!

    depends how long your strap is, if your wrist feels like that, the strap is too short

    Protip, by pass the music salesmen and buy one from radiosack. I'm assuming 9volt dc adapter? If you had alot of remote control cars and shit as a kid, look for a charger. You can totally use those.

    Classic Vibe teles for shizz. Want one.

    Also, Frontman's are pretty crappy, even for a starter amp. Chuck Laney TF's on there please, even though you can only find them used nowadays... :)

    ^ Go to your local tip shop and get a 9V, negative centerpin one (with a decent amount of amps if you want to daisy chain). 300mA should be able to deal with one pedal.

    depends on the kinda sound you want, i really like epiphone acoustics, and theyre are a decent amount of epis in the 300 - 400 range that are very nice, but there is also ovation takamine taylor martin, just some other nicer brands, i dono how expensive any of those are but you have to go try a couple out so you get the sound you want

    I need help with string skipping. I learned Scarified by Racer X, and the end arps are just impossible. It skips from the high E to the G and then the A, with three notes per string and big stretches. It's a bitch. Any tips with learning something like this?
