yes ron ..I do like my guitar a lot ..and it aint a big pain to sit and play as you think .only needs some gettin used to ..and it aint very heavy too ..its made of basswood ..so can indeed stand and practice but the main problem is the size ...i like most indians live in a small house in a small room ..if i stand and play ..one turn to the left and i bang the head ..one move to the right and i bang the body .the body also is the full V not like the jackson...so you can understand the size of the thing..thats why im lookin into gettin a nice strat !
yes ..you guys are 100% rite ..whammy bar just like wah is for people who cant solo or need help in the solos ..well im one of them !!!..i cant solo for nuts ..usually half way through my left hand gives up ...thats were the whammy comes in ..so instead of doin that i can play slow solo with al im notes sustainin well and also usin the whammy bar so that the solo will technically sound good .
but i really like to solo like EVH .and you cant play or even practice EVH solos without the whammy .wat about solos by joe and vai ...not that I can play any of them but when i eventually do( within the next 100 yrs atleast ) i il need the whammy and will miss it then !!! and ...EVH patented the kahler tremolo which eventually led to the floyd !
alpha ..if you guittar is heavy ..your back will get screwed man if you sloach..I used to get back pain initially when i used to stand and practice for hours sloachin..and my guitar aint that heavy either .but nowadays i practice only on acoustic !! and alpha ..thanks for remindin me of wat i said abeit the wah part !!!!brings back fond memories !!!
NOW why dint u guys say slash ???????????????????????????
