Sigma's are good acoustic guitars considering they are relatively expensive. They are licensed under C.F. martin guitars too. I used to have one about 10 years ago when I was a little kid and it played great. The action was nice and it sounded great and stayed in tune. They have some on ebay, but I dont know if they are as good as the one I used to have. Heres a link to one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2565749997&category=33028

Osker! Oops! Sorry I sounded like such a jerk. I wasn't tryin to dis on yer skills mang. My point (that I guess I didn't get across) was that there is nothing about ANY instrument that makes it easy OR hard, it's how you play it. You can play easy stuff on any instrument, just like you can play needlessly compmlicated stuff on any instrument. IMHO it is VERY hard to rock a bass like Jacko, Flea, or Victor Wooton. Thats what I meant.

I started on bass 7 years ago, and graduated to guitars about 3-4 ago. I love my national with all my heat, but somthing about pounding low end still rocks my body like none other. Well I'll move on now, I made myslef clear. Sorry for the misunderstanding, buddy.

Just a question to those of you who recommended learning songs you like.

I've owned a guitar for about a year, not really getting into it too much, but lately I've gotten interested. Whenever I try to learn a song, I find that I always just learn the easy parts (even though it takes me a few tries), and the complicated parts I just give up on after a while. So when I try to play along with the song I just know a few of the riffs. Should I try to learn easy songs entirely, and progress from there to more difficult songs? Or should I just keep working on the complicated parts at a slower pace, then eventually gain the speed to play in time with the song?

I've mostly been trying to play Tool or Zeppelin, but recently I've started getting into the Beatles and those are a lot more fun to play.

no don't learn the bass, you'll love guitar better trust me. The bass is just to easy to play and is not really a challenge.




Ahahaha. There are two types of bassists. The first type, which is most of the bassists, are the ones who couldn't play guitar and came to bass because they suck. The other type of bassist (very rare, but I happen to be one :grin:) are the ones who consciously decide to play bass because it IS so much fucking cooler.

Bass playing is not really a challenge? Then you are listening to the wrong bassists as inspiration. Check out some Cliff Burton, Steve Harris, Flea, Geddy Lee, Jason Newsted, Geezer Butler, Jaco Pastorius.. true bassists.

Besides, there is just so much more that bass guitar offers. It is the cornerstone of music. It ties everything together. And if you become a truly great bassist (like me), it is so much easier to get recoginition, because you will stand out.

And I can play better electric guitar than fucking most guitarists anyway, and my bass theory makes my playing on guitar very interesting indeed..
Peace.

Never actually heard him play before, but I have heard the name, same thing with that other guy.... the one dude... fuck. :grin: Ahh yeah, Billy Sheenan.

Just finished a quick jam myself, actually. I have finally gotten back to my old level (went two months without playing, my bass had to stay in the U.S. and I had to wait until I had the money to buy a new one), and I really pushed my technique as far as it goes just now.. couldn't play for very long, but it was great to finally pull of that amazing stuff again.

Bass is one hell of an instrument, never let anyone sell it short.. :grin:
Peace.

Lugash is the fucking best. :grin:

It is great, he takes all of his students cats, and if they do well, they get them back (hence him holding Snowball II, whom he just pulled out of his shirt). Later on, he is like "You all did great. Cats back for everybody!" and this one girl says "But I had a dog!". Lugash points at her and yells "He's cat now!"
:grin: Great stuff. He was only in one episode that I seen, so I am hoping that he will appear sometime soon...
Peace.

I hope they bring back lugash! Disco Stu made it to some other episodes...as did Duff Man and the waiter who had the stroke and sounds like Jody Price.

My favorite 1 time character is the robot on fire. He is burning and says "Why!? Why was I programmed to feel pain?"

Hehe, yeah, that robot was pretty cool.

And Disco Stu has shown up in a lot of episdoes, I saw him today while watching an episode from Series 14 (Homer is singing his song about walking, and he sings like "and I bust a move with Disco Stu").

My favourite with Disco Stu was with the sugar. How, when he got it, he got out the dollar bill, rolled it up, and then sucked the sugar into his mouth... it was funny as hell!

That waiter with the crazy voice I have seen in a lot of them.. he is actually some actor. I am not sure who, but he cracks me up every time "Yeesssssssss?????? Yesssssssssssssssssssss!!! :grin:
Peace.
