Les Paul copy guitar

I sometimes forget how special my black Les Paul copy guitar is.
It arrived with the finished chipped in a spot. The company is great on offering replacements.
I asked what they were going to do with the guitar I was going to send back and they said
they were not going to bother fixing it. I felt bad. It's a great guitar right up there with
my Epiphone Les Paul guitars. It deserved a better fate than just being thrown away.
So, I decided to keep it especially since they were out of stock and it took a long time
to receive it.

I'm telling you folks, these guitars are inexpensive and sound and play FANTASTIC!!!
I did the Photoshop work myself with photos I personally took

I don't like owning expensive things. I like owning things that are inexpensive and that look and perform excellent.
Here are some more of my VERY INEXPENSIVE guitars that look and sound great and
show off my photography skills and expertise in Photoshop:

All theses guitars are from that same company I dare not name.
This one was on sale for, I believe, 68 bucks and I just couldn't pass it up:

The shipping wasn't that much and it sounds great!!
68 bucks. Sheesh!!! At that price it's not worth it doing a fret job,
so I bought a few of these guitars and alternate between them
to minimize fret wear on the necks.

The Prince Grand Mosque

When Prince died I was inspired to transform a guitar, from that same company,
into my own version of a Prince guitar that I call, wanna guess?

THE PRINCE

It was relatively easy to change the pick guard and add the Kung Fu fan stickers.
I call this Photoshop creation:

THE PRINCE GRAND MOSQUE

You have to imagine the full photo

Not exactly the same and that's just fine with me.
I outdo him as a guitarist. Seriously, folks!
I'm that good!

Adventure at Denny's

Postby LeeS » Sat Jun 11, 2016 11:02 am

I just got back from Denny's and it's always a great surprise when...they get my order right.
I had a cheeseburger deluxe and fries, with no pickle.
When I squeezed the ketchup bottle it made some rather obscene sounds.
I looked at the plastic squeeze bottle and said,

"Are you making those sounds because you were designed to do so,
or is this your way of saying that you like me?"

I got no response, which I automatically took as an admission of guilt

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Postby LeeS » Sat Jun 11, 2016 1:45 pm

The above video at 2m15s starts beginning of the guitar lead break
from the Beatles' While My Guitar Gently Weeps.
I've been working on this lead break for a while and still need to build up
my string bending callouses to fully pull it off. My poor pinky hurts just typing this post.

I intend to be getting the same overall effect, but I use heavier gauge strings
than Eric Clapton obviously used so it is more taxing on the fingers to bend the strings
as he did in the song. I just need to build thicker bending callouses.
I tend to use more sliding up to notes rather than bending the strings.

I like my guitars to be ready to play Jazz and those light strings
are just not good for jazz.

I Put A Spell On You

...AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT:


(No video displayed? / Kein Video angezeigt?: Java & Flash Installed/Installiert?)


I found an excellent Karaoke version of the above song and intend to do a ridiculous version of it.
The original has a lot of lead guitar work in it. I did a sophisticated editing using an audio editing program so that
I took out all the parts with the guitar lead breaks and copied and pasted the verse part without any vocals or guitar work in its place.

So, now I have an excellent, over 4 minute, version of this song with lots of room for lead guitar work. Oh boy, do I ever intend to make my version extra silly.

As if it's not silly enough. :mrgreen:
