It's really more amp than I wanted...funny thing is I walked into the place looking for a Pignose and ended up spending $2000.00. My wife walked in as I was playing on it and said if I wanted it I could get it...then the sales person started giving me all these deals...how could I resist??

I don't play in a band anymore and have too many other hobbies, but I do play guitar daily, but amp up on the weekends mostly.

I never got around to upgrading it to a II or upload tweaks. I've done that on one of my pedals though since I usually travel with it.

I got an Ibanez electric, Kramer Focus 1000 (modded), and a Peavey 5150 Tube amp. I'm trading that thing in on a smaller Fender amp. Oh, and a GNX3 guitar workstation board and an accoustic guitar. Oh, and an old Sears Cort Effector guitar, heavily frankensteined.

I haven't really played much in the past number of years. Just too busy with all the other hobbies.

I highly recommend working on playing with individual fingers. Something I never really go around to doing, but can vastly improve your playing ability. Practice, practice, practice. Do one thing, like finger exercises, then take a break and practice a song you like.

Learn to read Tab. Check out videos online. Take lessons. Mostly practice though. Finger exercises are boring and tiring, but they WILL help you. Also, if you can, set up a click track to practice to. It will help your timing.

Are you playing on electric, or accoustic? Play until your fingers are sore. They WILL be sore for a little while until your callouses build up.

FWIW if you like the amp, don't sell!!! The only gear I have ever regretted selling were the items sold when cash was tight...never got my money back out and the cash from the sale was gone so quick (not to mention that the cash could have been obtained elsewhere anyway)

Thanks for the advice and encouragement guys, I really appreciate it. I missed Orfy's thread so I will have to check that out. HB, I may send you a note, thanks for offering.

So far I have been doing what several of you suggested and just working on scales to try and work the muscles in my fretting hand. I've just started trying to learn chords and I still have a hard time getting all the notes to ring clear, just need more practice I guess.

Thanks again gang (this is why I love this board so dang much).

Lessons are nice for maybe a year. After that you should be able to read tabs and music good enough to just start practicing on your own. Good Luck! It's a fun hobby.
