That's what happens when you don't have a locking nut. Last time I tuned my guitar, it was December... of 2010. Has been in perfect tuning since then.

On my guitar that has a locking nut I need to adjust the lowest string by about an 1/8th of a turn on the fine tuners every month or so. I'm going to block the tremelo soon though because I don't like it, and just keep the locks for the tuning stability.

Either you play a lot or your saddle screw/block for the E-string has become worn out and now allows for slippage to occur. I have a licensed (AKA, not an original but an inferior version) of a OFR and it's holding up like a champ. I just need to order a new saddle block but it's hard to find them in Poland due to how expensive guitars they are here and a lot of sites don't ship to Europe... which is stupid considering how awesome this continent is.

Sounds like you're just going up and down a D-Minor scale and bending random notes. Other than that, cool.

Yeah, I was just having fun in D-minor, I didn't really composed anything.

Hey guys! Figured I'd drop in here for some opinions. I'm looking to buy my first classical guitar after years of playing a steel string. Anything around, about $1000 Canadian is fine for me. I'm fine with ordering things online too. Could I get some recommendations? I'd appreciate the input!

I've been playing ukulele for the last couple months and I'm LOVING it! And as there is probably much too small of a uke-playing userbase on NG, I was wondering if I could join in here. Ukulele is somewhat similar to guitar, right?

I've got a Kamoa Concert Mahogany Low-G :)

Well baritone ukes have the exact same tuning as the 4 highest strings on the guitar.

I would like to join.

1. I have a Gibson SG Special, a cheap electric, and a cheap acoustic
2. My favorite bands as of now would probably be Mastodon, The Prize Fighter Inferno, and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
3. I have been playing about 4 years and honestly am not as good as I'd like to be for playing for that long :(

I just tuned my friend's bass the other day by ear though, which made me happy, and I've been thinking of trying to learn Hangar 18 by Megadeth again (I gave up months ago, maybe even a year, so I'm gonna go back and see if I've improved enough to keep up now)

There's only one bassist I respect (Aside from Jeff Martin from Racer X) and that's Tom Jenkinson (AKA Squarepusher). The guy's completely insane on bass and his music is an orgasm to listen to. Check out this little bass solo he pulls off in this interview (4:44). Bass is crazy hard to master if you go all the way to the peak of techniques - respect to anyone who actually pulls it off.

I was unaware Squarepusher played the bass.

Also what about Victor Wooten.

Others I would list would also be James Leach, Alex Webster, and the dude from Obscura (I don't know his name).
