This lick is based around the C Major Pentatonic Scale. I
tend to think of my licks around chords and I'm not a fluent
scale player. I have been learning some scales and this lick
sounds neat to my ears!
I highly recommend this pedal. I have tried
and own numerous compressor pedals, in my opinion this one is the best. I
have a lot of questions about getting great tone, a compressor pedal is a
must. Retailing at $200, they are a bit pricey but well worth the money!
The Keeley Compressor is the standard for
guitar compression. It won the Editor's Pick Award from Guitar Player
Magazine and, most recently, the Reader's Choice Award for Stomp Box. It
features an internal attack control to make it suitable for high-output
active basses. It also features an input sensitivity control which allows it
to be used in the studio for keyboards, drum machines, for mastering, and
other line level uses. Features metal film resistors and capacitors, true
bypass, and matched transistors matched for gain within 1%.
Intonation is the ability to keep tune
or keep same pitch for the entire length of the fret board.
Having good intonation is essential part of playing guitar.
You can have a guitar in perfect tune when the string are
played open but when when fretted they are out or not in
sync with the other strings.
The slightest change can cause bad intonation. If you
switch string gauges or temperature changes can cause you guitar's neck to
shift or change. Also if you adjust the truss rod you may need to
change intonation. I have found after I make a truss rod adjustment it is
usually the next day before the neck settles then I make intonation
Guitars with individual
saddles can be adjusted fairly easy. Your saddles have screws that
hold them to the bridge. Tightening or loosening the saddle is how you
adjust the intonation of a guitar. This makes the string longer or shorter
thus changing intonation. If you look at your saddles they will probably
be in different positions, not in a line. A string that has the same pitch
played open as fretted on the twelfth fret has good intonation. All strings
should have the same pitch played open and fretted on twelfth fret.
Adjusting Intonation or
Intonating a Guitar
There are a couple things you
will need to set your intonation. A screwdriver and good
tuner. I recommend a strobe tuner as you will need precise
tuning. Also use a chord to connect to your tuner for more
Tune your string
played open to pitch. Fret and play the twelfth fret. It
should be the same pitch, if it is not here is what you do.
If the twelfth fret is sharp move the saddle away from the fingerboard or making
the string longer. If the twelfth fret is flat move the saddle closer to the
fingerboard or make the string shorter. Remember to keep your hands off the
neck after striking the note when tuning. The slightest weight on the neck
can change the pitch. Do this for all strings and your guitar's intonation
will be complete.
