Good thing it didn't fall out. You might've put it back in the wrong socket. :D

EDIT: by the way, didn't they use blue food color in the beer? Yellow+blue makes green.

Electric Guitars / Re: Epiphone Nighthawk Reissue

I lied... I forgot I DID put 490R/498T Gibson pups in my Epi LP studio deluxe. I haven't played it in awhile. I don't know or care what it sounds better than, but most importantly, I like the way it sounds, and that works for me.

That's how it should be. Certain pups likes certain wood (and amps) to be the sweetest. I did a lot of pup swaps on my guitars and finally settled down to keepers.

The D'Activators I have likes mahogany and SS amps for example.

You can replace the guard to preserve it. Scratch the other guard and save the epi. I know it's an archtop but are there chances of scratching the paint while playing without the guard?

Yea, I see it and I see how it works. Putting the minor third in the next octave doesn't clash so bad with the major third. Gotta keep that in mind.

Can anyone show me the fingering to the Hendrix chord?

Nevermind, it's x7876x (no 5) for E7#9 right?

I'm friendly enough so I can stay? :D

I'm with you. Let Hendrix have his chord. :D

Ah, I got it, I wrote it wrong.

Em is relative to G so here's Em again. I wonder if the key is Em (G).

E7#9 = E-G#-B-D#-G

Is that correct? I don't understand this chord but does it make it Em with a major 7?

and a G# as a jarring note, I don't know.

Guitar Playing, Technique, Theory / Re: C maj scale

Music is played by ear and we use theory to communicate and transcribe music. Of course you can use theory to learn music but your ear have to take over otherwise you'll be in a rut. The real trick is to learn about intervals and how one note (or chord) to another note (or chord) can sound major, minor or neutral.

You'll have to experiment and don't stick to the scale notes. Modes make exceptions to the scale by changing the intervals though they're still the same notes. Play notes (chords) outside of the scale to put colors in your music.

Beth, modes are inversions of the major scale. Looking at the C major scale you can start on any note in the scale as your tonic (root) and their functions will differ. It's because of the intervals between the notes.

For example:

C D E F G A B C = I ii iii IV V vi vii- I

A B C D E F G A = i II III iv v VI VII- i

Robert, G# (G#-B-D#) is the 3rd chord of E major.

Many times. :)

Thanks. That's the "no frills" model. The ones with bindings and paint jobs are really nice but I didn't want to spend money on 'em. It was poly wiped but I refinished it by sanding, staining and shellacking it. Bring the grains out a little more. I also changed the pups to Carvin Holdsworth set.

Yea, I'm a Carvinite. :D
