    Tricking Out

    Customizing an electric guitar is something I've always wanted to do. The question is how, and what. My plan is to buy the cheapest guitar I can find, preferably not that much of a piece of s**!. Maybe a fender Squire. What I would do is sand the finish off, and also the paint, and then mask everything that wouldn't be painted. And then of course paint it with a base color. But what I would wanna do is do this, and using some frisk film, I would put a graphic. For example, if the color were black, I could get a simple little skull and paint it on there in white. The point is to customize it to the maximum level to see how tricked out a guitar can get > Other ideas would be to carve out things on the head, messing with the fretboard, messing with body components like knobs, pickshields, etc. I don't really have a question on the specific methods, although if you do wanna suggest something I'd appreciate it, but what do you think about things like this?

  3. Yello, This is from some German thing, a historical interpretation of music keys in the 18th and 19th century. You get the idea of what kind of music. But I think it's something to see to understand what kind of feelings are/were understood by classical music. In all, things like blues and jazz are different, but it's in a really broad perspective, kind of the same. Anyways, just popular opinion of music keys- just to read, I guess. -copied: C Major Completely Pure. Its character is: innocence, simplicity, na�vety, children's talk. C Minor Declaration of love and at the same time the lament of unhappy love. All languishing, longing, sighing of the love-sick soul lies in this key. Db Major A leering key, degenerating into grief and rapture. It cannot laugh, but it can smile; it cannot howl, but it can at least grimace its crying.--Consequently only unusual characters and feelings can be brought out in this key. C# Minor Penitential lamentation, intimate conversation with God, the friend and help-meet of life; sighs of disappointed friendship and love lie in its radius. D Major The key of triumph, of Hallejuahs, of war-cries, of victory-rejoicing. Thus, the inviting symphonies, the marches, holiday songs and heaven-rejoicing choruses are set in this key. D Minor Melancholy womanliness, the spleen and humours brood. Eb Major The key of love, of devotion, of intimate conversation with God. D# Minor Feelings of the anxiety of the soul's deepest distress, of brooding despair, of blackest depresssion, of the most gloomy condition of the soul. Every fear, every hesitation of the shuddering heart, breathes out of horrible D# minor. If ghosts could speak, their speech would approximate this key. E Major Noisy shouts of joy, laughing pleasure and not yet complete, full delight lies in E Major. E minor Na�ve, womanly innocent declaration of love, lament without grumbling; sighs accompanied by few tears; this key speaks of the imminent hope of resolving in the pure happiness of C major. F Major Complaisance & Calm. F Minor Deep depression, funereal lament, groans of misery and longing for the grave. F# Major Triumph over difficulty, free sigh of relief utered when hurdles are surmounted; echo of a soul which has fiercely struggled and finally conquered lies in all uses of this key. F# Minor A gloomy key: it tugs at passion as a dog biting a dress. Resentment and discontent are its language. G Major Everything rustic, idyllic and lyrical, every calm and satisfied passion, every tender gratitude for true friendship and faithful love,--in a word every gentle and peaceful emotion of the heart is correctly expressed by this key. G Minor Discontent, uneasiness, worry about a failed scheme; bad-tempered gnashing of teeth; in a word: resentment and dislike. Ab Major Key of the grave. Death, grave, putrefaction, judgment, eternity lie in its radius. Ab Minor Grumbler, heart squeezed until it suffocates; wailing lament, difficult struggle; in a word, the color of this key is everything struggling with difficulty. A Major This key includes declarations of innocent love, satisfaction with one's state of affairs; hope of seeing one's beloved again when parting; youthful cheerfulness and trust in God. A minor Pious womanliness and tenderness of character. Bb Major Cheerful love, clear conscience, hope aspiration for a better world. Bb minor A quaint creature, often dressed in the garment of night. It is somewhat surly and very seldom takes on a pleasant countenance. Mocking God and the world; discontented with itself and with everything; preparation for suicide sounds in this key. B Major Strongly coloured, announcing wild passions, composed from the most glaring coulors. Anger, rage, jealousy, fury, despair and every burden of the heart lies in its sphere. B Minor This is as it were the key of patience, of calm awaiting ones's fate and of submission to divine dispensation.
  4. I'll be honest; I don't really like lyrics that tell the story straight out. What I mean is, for example: Joan got rid of risk And of dare And now she got three kids Pullin at her hair. Oh, she shouldn't have, that night, Gone home. She shoulda kept it tight And skipped out on the loan. I just did that. Now that's what I think is one of the cool things about nonsense. It can be catchy and fun, even though its totally stupid. Just look at she'll be coming around the mountain when she comes. So she'll make it around the mountain. Who gives a f*%k? But if you just wanna let some voice out then write symbolizing something. See, like I said, I don't like straight-out lyrics most of the time because: they just ruin the fun. What's the fun? Thinking about what it means and settling with your own interpretation of the song, lyrically. Be metaphorical, simple-minded, maybe; the point is to achieve some sort of deepness beyond the simplicity of the lyrics. Or find some way to make something juvinile whose idea is full babel into something tragic. That's what I do. Sheesh that's really depressing. Anyways, yeah, the thing is, it kind of depends. For example if you have a voice and start singing passionately, and the music is ok, I guess it wouldn't really matter what you're saying. It all depends, though. Now as for the how to make em, establish whether you wanna be playful, tragically simple, or just loud. Find the chords and sounds that express it, and do what every other musician does. Good luck
