[QUOTE=Xenocidebot;35899104]Alright, now I feel like a moron. I bought everything I needed for this wiring job...except the wire. Is there a physical store that carries shielded 22 AWG single conductor wire, or do I have to just buy it online? I'm not big on things that cost more in shipping than anything else.[/QUOTE] Radio Shack carries 22AWG single conductor I think.
I think I am gonna go simple on my explorer and put a Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge and PAF in the neck. Going through an Ace Frehley phase right now. But I always had a thing for the super distortion, the 91' les paul I played had a set from the 70's. On a side note aged creme pickups look amazing.

The Super distortion is an incredible pickup. [video]http://soundcloud.com/kabstract/80s-metal-version-3[/video] Rerecorded while my R16 was allowing me, and I changed up the drums to fit the style more. I also changed how I was picking to make the notes less piercing trebly at times.
I finally reached the point where I memorized whole Pentatonic Minor scale in all keys and I can play it without thinking much about what I play, I can just grab guitar and improvise something right away, but I still did not figure out chord relations to the scale, I do not play in boxes either I play few notes slide up and down the neck to keep it dynamic. I guess I should learn Major scale now right? Because I do not have to learn Blues scale because it's just pentatonic with chromatic notes, if I'm right. Also my latest achievement was learning Devil's Island by Megadeth, it does rip your arm, I also wanna learn Holy Wars in it's entirety, I know how to play few verses but not song as a whole.
Blues scales are pentatonic with "blue notes" added. 12bar.de is helpful website
[QUOTE=ButtsexV3;35900644]Radio Shack carries 22AWG single conductor I think.[/QUOTE] Shielded, though? Well, probably don't need it, since it's painted, but I'd rather be on the safe side about it.
[QUOTE=Xenocidebot;35907902]Shielded, though? Well, probably don't need it, since it's painted, but I'd rather be on the safe side about it.[/QUOTE] I don't think they sell shielded anything but you really don't need shielded wire if you shield the cavity
[QUOTE=Kabstrac;35903927]Good choice. The Super distortion is an incredible pickup.[/QUOTE] Indeed, I love the 59' in my Ibanez but I am going for something a little hotter. [editline]10th May 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=ButtsexV3;35908309]I don't think they sell shielded anything but you really don't need shielded wire if you shield the cavity[/QUOTE] I bought some shielded 2 conductor wire from them once, I haven't seen it in a while though. I remember when radioshack had everything...
Yeah I remember when I was a kid if you went into radioshack you got bombarded with tandy computers, walkmans, carphones, and electrical components. now it's nothing but RC cars, cellphones, and phone plug adapters.
Yeah, I didn't remember seeing anything I needed the last time I went into one. The only people I know who shop there are buying phones without plan. But what the hell, if they're selling wire for a decent price I'll buy it. I'd feel better about redundant shielding just because in my expert opinion cavity shielding does jack shit, but I hadn't had any problems before when it wasn't using shielded wire, so meh.
I usually get my solder and perfboard and maybe some basic components that I need in a pinch but anything else I just order online
my local radioshack is the most busted place I've ever seen they only have like 2 or 3 r/cs at the most all the rest is weird stuff like little lcds you put on 360s so you can use them in the car

The only real reason why I go there is because I know the guys there, otherwise I would buy everything online.
Welp, no wire. Time to compare shipping costs.
So, last week I bough a guitar, and I've managed to get one song right, which is a short one. Anyone have some easy beginner song? (I'm willing to learn more chords, atm I know Dm, A and E)

I just ordered a trans-red Peavey T-40. Beyond excite. May never need another bass guitar ever again.
[QUOTE=Banned?;35917731]I just ordered a trans-red Peavey T-40. Beyond excite. May never need another bass guitar ever again.[/QUOTE] What year? Is it 78-80 or is it one of the ones with blade pups?
Blade pups.
I'm probably gonna get a second with blades. I like my '78 and everything but I think I'd like having a '78 and an '82 with a Kahler better
Borrowing a yamaha rx15 from a friend only to learn that we have lots of drum machines
[QUOTE=cpt.armadillo;35919524]Borrowing a yamaha rx15 from a friend only to learn that we have lots of drum machines[/QUOTE] that's a cool drum machine, so many opportunities for circuit bending
Hello Facepunch guitarist, I am in need of your help desperately. I went on hiatus from my guitar for about 7 months and i'm trying to get back into it, and I just can't. I don't feel the magic I felt before my hiatus. I honestly do with all my heart want to get back into playing my guitar, but when I try I don't play it very long. I used to play like 3-6 hours a day but now I can only seem to play a couple minutes before I feel like putting it down again. Has anyone ever gone through that feeling? Where you feel like you lost all feeling for playing the guitar? And does anyone have any clue on what should I do?

I just hope that I can get the sensation I got before and stop having to force myself to play un-enjoyful sessions. I appreciate your help.
learn some new songs that always gets me excited
FFFFFFFFF YEAH. I also called Verellen Amps and ordered a Big Spider fuzz pedal and just got my confirmation email. I feel good as fuck right now.
