so i bought an electric acoustic (acoustic electric)?

anyway it has a 3/4 jack. there's a 3/4 jack to usb conveniently being sold online. the guit has an onboard preamp. im content with just the basics right now.

here's the dummy question: do i have to change the metal strings i've been using on it in its acoustic form to nylon strings in order for the pickups and computer software to register my playing?

derp i figure the answer is yes, but i wonder since i havent bought nylons or computer hookup equipment yet.

If it has pickups installed you must use metal strings. Pickups work off the magnetism of steel and nylon isn't ferric. Unless you have a piezo pickup you'll get no sound out of it. Post a model so I can say for sure but I don't see any reason to use nylons.

Nylons are generally for acoustic and metal is for electric. Think you may have them backwards here.

OP Here.

Ill just swallow my embarrassment here. I meant 1/4 jack for electric guitar output.

The guitar I bought is just a Yamaha Acoustic Electric it has onboard preamp and 1 way piezo pickups as well as an out port for a 1/4 jack.

it came with, i don't know what else to call them but metal, (brass , steel, copper, tin i think for the EADBGE.. they came in a set) strings. they sound fine, i like to fumble with them and sound off some notes/strum when i know i am alone.

i have been using Rosegarden software on Fedora Linux to record my singing.
i don't think i am going to need it, since Audacity does fine for recording and editing.

So I am looking at a 22$
Behringer GUITAR 2 USB Guitar to USB Interface Cable

IF the cord works on my linux computer, youre saying that I need to keep the metal strings in order for the music software to pick up my playing?

if I can record my playing, I'd be very happy. I'm trying to do this all bare bones first, so I don't feel like a fool on expensive equipment that I can't get to work.

I do wish there were some way to play the electric, have it record to the computer, but not have the phyiscal guitar sound out loud. is there a way to do that? i always thought this was how electric guitars worked, actually.

maybe the synthesizer programs are more for me. still, i believe the guitar deserves a special kind of respect and I owe it to everyone to at least try to incorporate a real one.

thanks for taking time to read this.

Well, since it's an ACOUSTIC electric, you're never gonna be able to avoid hearing the sound of the guitar itself.
If it were just a normal electric, all you'd hear is the strings clicking from your pick. Along with any audio coming from the computer or amp.

They're usually copper coated strings.
D'Addario strings are a good route for a beginner.
If you happen to break a string I'd recommend going to your local music store
(Guitar center does a thing where you pay for the strings to be changed and they replace them with Ernie Ball strings, which are good. They do it for free. You just pay for the work to be done.)

If it means anything, if you cannot record to your PC and everything, you have an acoustic. Microphone usage with acoustic doesn't sound bad for your own personal listening.

Always record yourself, and always listen back to how you sound. Look where you can improve and what you can work on.

Justinguitar.com is a decent website, ignore the guys fashion sense and you're good to go, lol.
Chordify, Ultimate Guitar, Songster, these are all good song databases, if you'd like to look for ways to play the songs you like. They're not always correct so. Better than nothing at this stage however.

Struggle thru the pain of your finger tips being numb or calloused.
Hope everything's good for you and have fun playin!

Too old for Wub Wubs and EDM?

I guess I'm getting old. I don't understand the new dubstep. If anyone can explain to me what I'm missing I would appreciate it. I know there has to be some aspect about it that's redeemable or it wouldn't be so popular. And even after it's explained to me I still don't get it, I'm ok with that. Music should change and evolve. As I'm getting older, if newer music doesn't confuse or scare me it's doing something wrong. But in anything I've listened to I've always been able to at least get WHY someone would like it even if I don't. This isn't the case with this newer evolution of edm though.

Artists like Midnight Tyranosaurus, Svdden Death, and even Excision's stuff from 2016 on sound like garbage to me. I can't get into riddim despite all my friends being giant fans. I still like hardstyle, drum n bass, jungle, and old regular type dubstep (surprise! stuff my friends don't like) which is seemingly getting harder to find.

I guess for me riddim is just boring and repetitive and doesnt seem to have any kind of melody (or rhythm? idk the difference), its just noises. I like being able to follow a beat, hear something with a little structure. Otherwise i would just buy a collection of explosion and lazer sound effects and play that. It's also why Tipper and White Bear can be hard for me to listen to, but I can still appreciate the complexity in their music.

And it isn't like I only listen to EDM. My music taste is pretty eclectic. I'll go through phases of classical, rock, pop, punk, and even country plus more. It's just about the only concerts I will go to and the music most people in my social circle will listen to happens to be EDM. But even now, I'm going to shows I don't want to see with friends, and going to shows I DO want to see by myself.

Hell idk maybe 28 is when you start turning into a crotchety "Back in my day music was better" man. I'll go drink some Metamucil and watch JAG.

Well Paul Grey OD's on fent way back when.
Then Joey got some kind of degenerative disease from heroin abuse and got kicked out. I knew his cousin(?) and got the full insider story and basically Corey Taylor is an asshole to sum it up.
Then Chris Fehn got booted because he wanted more money but he wasn't a "full member" according to Corey and then he filed a lawsuit for unpaid money and shit.

So basically it is just 3 of 9 getting kicked out. Unless you count Donny Steele playing bass behind stage until they got the new guy on bass.

Blut Aus Nord is something to check out for fretless guitar too if you're interested.

You may get into Wanyk. Sid and Craig get far more carried away using samples and electronic shit. They also have a whole song in 7/4 if I remember correctly. It is still a formulaic slipknot album but the catchy chorus shit is a bit more overdone. It works but it is still slipknot being slipknot. Just interesting to see them topping charts and shit again along with new tool and korn music. Like 1999 all over again I guess.

You should play some Intronaut on fretless bass. Their bassist also plays fretless bass. He’s one of my favorite bassists and dudes in general. He always posts cool little facts about Tool and the music industry in the post-metal shitposting group were both in on Facebook lol

I can't be the only one who is amazed by the fact that Necrophagist were the first tech death band. Their first album holds up to this day. Especially against bands like Inferi, the Faceless, and others. I'm not super well versed in the tech death history, but Necrophagist blew my mind when I hears theird first album from 1999! Absolutely amazing.

Any other early recommendations? I need them. I've been on a Darkthrone and Emperor binge so I need some more good tech death in my life.

Thank you.

Atheist and Gorguts are great. Atheist has a bit of a jazzy feel, while Gorguts are straight fucked.
I'd add Nocturnus. Their album The Key is pretty technical, and has a cool spacey vibe. And of course, if you aren't familiar with Death you should check them out too. They got pretty technical starting with Human.
Check out Maruosa

I officially quit trying to learn guitar.

After 9 years of trying, really trying, I finally got fed up, I did the only thing my hands are good for...

I punched a hole into my guitar.
And now i'm leaving it by the curb. It's still playable, it just has a fist-hole in it.

Fuck trying to learn music. I'm only good at bashing things.

Maybe your problem is guitar. I hate guitar. I played guitar for years. I never found it enjoyable.
Then I got a free piano that I somehow managed to get delivered to the house I was living at. Complete game-changer.
I hated how playing things on guitar was like this multi-step process: press the string, pluck the string. And how playing various different notes required various different techniques, it all just pissed me off and was incredibly un-fun.

Piano is great for bashing. To hear the sound you press the key. That is it my dude. It's percussion, it's melody, it's harmony, it's all laid out without weird edge cases, so going up a scale from bottom to top your hands are going to be doing the same thing as you go up.

To me, guitar is garbage, but don't give up music, find an instrument that suits you.

Did you take lessons? Have you ever had any formal music training or were you trying to figure it all out on your own? Even just a couple of lessons with tutors can enlighten you to all kinds of musical knowledge, tips, and tricks that you didn't know before, and really jump-start your growth.

Also, be aware of what your goals are in music. Do you want to record, or perform, or neither? I consider myself a musical hobbyist with no real desire to put on a show or make a record. This allows my creativity/expression to feel free and without expectation.

Anyway, you shouldn't give up on making music entirely. I can't stand trying to play guitar either (I'm a woodwind player). If you can rent other instruments, try that. None of it is easy. That's why hardly anybody actively does it.

So I just spent the last few hours emptying my old tracks from my loopers into my laptop, started organizing the files, and updated the firmware on my loopers so I could actually make some new music like I wanted. But now I'm sitting on here instead of actually doing it.

Discipline and creativity are two integral parts to making art, but at times they seem to be standing in direct opposition to each other. So I was wondering how you guys merge these two seemingly foreign (to each other anyways) concepts and what strategies do you use to get over that hill of procrastination that happens between you wanting to create, and actually getting off your ass to do it.

>pic related, it's half of my super loop rig (well the picture isn't one I took of my actual looper but it's the model I have)

That is not true my friend. There is a fragment of the ineffable inside me and I can only begin to express it through a series of sound and light that I am not quite skilled enough to make, yet. I do have to do this. I'll get there someday, I just gotta keep up with practice. Sometimes I get distracted talking to y'all beautiful people around here when I should be practicing my shit.

I mostly meant it as a general music related procrastination thread though, I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets distracted when working on a track.

I'm sitting at 200 right now with maybe about 25 tracks, and 6 or 7 mixed to master. I recently got some new equipment to so I've been learning the ins and outs of that instead of creating things I want to save, but I think it's time to get back to recording real stuff. My last loop felt really good and it's been a minute since that happened.
