I notice a lot of threads for those that consume music. How about one for those of us, that create music. Specifically guitar, though i’m open to expand the discussion if wanted. Also, if this is in the wrong section, feel free to push it around.
To kick this off, a little intro from myself. I’ve been playing guitar since i was 6 or 7. I got my first guitar from my mother. Throughout my childhood i got classical lessons for the clarinette, saxophone, organ and a bit of piano. None of those stuck. The Guitar was always there and i never took lessons.
Now, 25 Years later, i’m still at it. I played in a Band for 2 years, and we made an album that never got finished because of Problems with the Producer. The band split over that and i went back to playing just for myself.
Nowadays, i record at home when i feel like it, play a bunch of Rocksmith and just use the guitar as my chill out zone. And i’m very happy with that.
Now, to get a discussion going, i’m trying to work out, what strings to get. I recently discovered, that tuning to a e A E A’ E’ works incredibly well for me. I can make that work with 10-56 sets on my 25.5" Sterling JP, but it’s just a bit loose on the Lowend.
Ernie Ball made a new 6 String set that goes down to a 68 i think, but starts at 13. There are just no sets out there, that would accomodate such a spread in tuning. Just go with a regular 10-52 set an replace the 52 with a 60 or such? Individual Strings get expensive fast… Or are there 7 String set’s i could make work?
