Artisan Series Majesty - new series from EBMM!
What do we know (quotes from ebmm forum):
- “jp will gbe rocking this and a few other new tidbits in Australia”
- there will be more colour options (“wait until you see the red artisan”, “I could have said trans black one”)
Personally I can’t wait to see the trans black finish - would be a great addition to my good ol’ trans black JP7 :)
Searching the right note.
Is it bad that I only like acoustic guitars? Like I'd love to be a professional guitarist. Is.. that like.. bad that I only like to play rock on my acoustic rather than my electric? I just love to strum, make a beat or rhythm of the song. Sometimes.. When I listen to a song or play it on my guitar I can literally hear every bit of the song. Is that good? XD. Do you know any tips or techniques? I know this sounds stupid but like.. how do you express your emotions whenever you play guitar? XD..
Hey! It’s not so weird as you think :) My friend from previous band had exactly the same feelings as you have - he played electric guitar in our band, but at home he played and composed only on acoustic.
There’s nothing bad in playing rock on acoustic, but as you know electric is simply more popular in this kind of music. And there’s reason why it is that way - electric guitar is more versatile in “creating” sound. Acoustic is always acoustic - sure, you can use distortion with it, but the result probably won’t be nice.
I think you should spend some time on searching for YOUR tone. You probably like acoustic guitar more because it has that sound and feeling - as you said, it has this “percussive” character. You can achieve such things on electric, but it’s an outcome of many elements - guitar (pickups, strings), amp, fxs and, what is most important, YOUR PLAYING TECHNIQUE.
A good first step is to check what gear the guitarists from your favourite bands are using.
Emotions… Well, music itself is a way of expressing emotions. My compositions always are a reflection of my mood/thoughts/feelings. When it comes to playing live the expression will come naturally - at the beginning guitarists often copy the expression of their idols (rising the picking hand on legatos, opening mouth while using way pedal - you probably know that stuff;). But after some time you will find your own, “natural” way of expression on stage.
A kind of day when you get up, went to work and still haven’t woken up…
One of these days when there’s a lot of work to be done, a little of time and even less willingness to work…
There’s no destination for music and playing, it’s an endless journey…
