Quote from: analog kid on January 11, 2014, 11:41:40 PMI have five guitars that are all in bad shape. None of them have ever had a proper setup, and humid LA climate reeks havoc on intonation.I'd like to see some truss rod adjustment tips. It's something I've never messed with. I have a Baby Taylor that's especially susceptible to climate, apparently, and the intonation is bad enough now that its unplayable (humidifiers are out of the question in Southern LA).Frankly, I'm chicken about doing the nuts and bolts adjustments to my guitars. I don't know that I'll ever try a fret dressing on one of them. The podcast is right up my alley and looking forward to it.
Quote from: (Redacted) on January 12, 2014, 04:35:00 PMTruss rods are scary because all the guitar techs and dudes are so... intense about them. Don't be scared! Heh, easy for me to say I am scared of everything, except truss rods. Just remember: "Quarter turn at a time, & check the action." That's the Golden Rule of Truss Rod Adjustment. Clockwise bows the neck inward, counterclockwise bows it out. I'm sure The General will cover this on his show in greater depth. Any guitar can sing if properly set up. Looking forward to the show.

Quote from: analog kid on January 15, 2014, 08:47:53 PMIf intro music is The General I'm giving up playing the guitar for juggling bowling pins.
Quote from: The General on January 15, 2014, 08:50:35 PMHa ha. Thanks.All the music in this episode indeed features me on guitar. Most of it is my former band, 'The Satellite 4.'Future episodes might have different stuff. Don't know yet.
Quote from: The General on January 15, 2014, 08:50:35 PMThanks! The audio is a little funny in spots, I think I went overboard with the compression.

Quote from: eddie dean on January 15, 2014, 09:13:30 PMI'm confident you will make the appropriate adjustments.You have a Tom Hartman vibe going on. Not an insult. Relaxed and chill, perfect for the subject matter.
Quote from: themudking on January 15, 2014, 09:40:46 PMThis Rocks! I know nothing about guitars but love listening to someone that knows their stuff and of course you sound great.
Quote from: onan on January 16, 2014, 02:16:08 AMNice goin' there General... your wife is awesome.
Quote from: MV on January 16, 2014, 10:11:16 AMi've uploaded another copy of the show, this time with less volume compression, so it should sound better.
Quote from: guildnavigator on January 16, 2014, 11:12:16 AMFirst show was awesome!Here's a question: how do you feel about using insta-set on CA glue when gluing in new frets? I've had someone tell me that it's better to let the glue cure by itself. Someone else told me to just spray it so the glue cures before the frets can pop up.
Quote from: The General on January 16, 2014, 11:13:43 AMGreat question, I'll cover it in the next episode, thanks!
Quote from: eeieeyeoh on January 16, 2014, 02:32:13 PMGreat podcast show and format Eric. Monthly sounds like a full moon event. Hopefully other shows will fill in the quarters and new moon phases. You certainly chose a limitless topic. Nothing para or normal about it.Hopefully kids in future will better protect the foundation of the listening experience. I have no idea how my ears escaped damage after the abuse which I didn't care about way back when. It just seemed fun then. Took decades to discover and own the microphones w/the stability of numerical values to measure how much damage I did, and turned out not much or anything at all. Perhaps another miracle of life and ability to heal. However that topic is so vast of things already scientifically defined, I don't even know where to begin.
