This is a pretty good site for free lessons of all kinds.
I can play a little guitar. any one know any good sites that offer some FREE tutorials. I know lessons would be better but I cant really afford those
Well, a bass is a type of guitar after all (bass guitar), so of course discussion of bass is welcome here as well
I play Bass, not guitar. I have an Ibanez GSR200. I just hook it up to my PA system through my DIGI002 mixer. It works well, and if I want I can run it through Pro-Tools to change the sound how I want.

It kind of depends on the teacher. There are some guitar players that are really good, but poor teachers. I will say that I've taken lessons and I found these videos to be better and far easier to understand. The guy is really great at explaining things in a simple and easy to understand way. Why don't you grab the sample lessons from the site and see how you like it?
I got a electric guitar March 09' and i have been looking for lessons etc i have previously been using youtube but find some of the lessons a bit cack.
http://www.guitarin60seconds.com is this really good? I might get that, does it teach you everything like a teacher would or would a teacher be better?
Nice rig there. Have you tried the Seymour Duncan Blackouts? I prefer them over EMG's. They're a little more "natural" sounding as well as being more defined and clearer. They have the push and cut through as actives, but the warmth of passives. I actually find my inexpensive Agile with the Duncans sounds better than my Gibson with the EMG's.
Been playing for about 5 years. The Kit:
Tokai Love Rock - Set up and tuned two semitones down.
Seymour Duncan SH4 JB (Bridge)/Seymour Duncan APH-1n (Neck)
ESP LTD VB-200 Baritone - Set up and tuned three semitones down to Db.
EMG ZW 81/85 Pickup set.
Epiphone Les Paul Standard - Standard tuning.
EMZ ZW 81/85 Pickup set.
OLP John Petrucci Signature - Standard tuning.
EMG HZ Pickups
- Gibson Goldtone GA-15 Amp
- Marshall JCM 2000 DSL-401
- Line 6 Spider II 112
- Digitech RP-12 FX Board
- Jim Dunlop Crybaby Classic
Also have an Encore bass but technically its the gf's.

Nice rig!! How do you like the Roland? I've used a Boss GT-10 and a Line6 PODXT and found them just too complicated. How authentic is the actual guitar modeling? Was your Strat custom made for you, or did you build it yourself from parts?
I play guitar. It started as a hobby, but I have to call myself a professional now, seeing as I derive the majority of income from that.
I trained as a jazz player, but professionally I mostly play pop/rock covers. Would like to do some more Jazz work, but there's not a lot of call for it where I live.
