    This just happened a few weeks back and I remembered the last thing I wrote in this thread. Second Coming is on Spotify! I have updated my scanned drawing with a completely white background so it's nice to download and print if anyone wants to:

    Re: Harry Cody - Second Coming

    To anyone on this thread willing to help a newbie (and fellow Shotgun Messiah/HKC fan):

    What gear did you start out on? I'm just learning (and have very little business in this forum) but I'm hoping to get some guidance on equipment from those who clearly dig great music. So, here goes some uneducated comments and questions.... be kind. I'm an adult but most 12-year-olds have larger hands than I do. Is it ridiculous to consider a 3/4 size body for that reason?

    At the local Guitar Center, I found a Schecter CR-6 that seems to have a thinner c-shape neck. (mahogany-ish body/maple neck) I'm thinking of pairing it with a smaller Line 6 Spider V. The GC person pushed the 120V (which I can actually lift!) but I really don't think that makes sense for me. I live in a condo/apartment building which I guess means headphones. :/ Woo.

    Let's be real; a Les Paul is a wee bit outta my price range. I'd like to keep the guitar, amp, and widgets under $1k or so, if possible.

    This is helpful: https://www.musiciansfriend.com/theh...ectric-guitars and this: https://www.guitarworld.com/blogs/ho...st-time-buyers but honestly, I'm feeling overwhelmed.

    Another question or three, does it make sense to add a sustainer pickup to a guitar with a bolt-on neck or should something like that only be used for set neck or neck-through design?

    Why are some necks in 3/5 pieces and use different woods? Is that generally for cost-savings or strength/durability? Is there something I should look for or avoid for a smaller/thinner neck?

    If I get the CR-6, should I swap out the Ernie Ball Regular Slinky strings for say EB's Skinny Top Heavy Bottom strings?

    Do you recommend any books, videos, or apps that help in the (super) early stages of learning? I definitely plan on taking lessons but I'd like to attempt a head start so I don't make my instructor cry.

    A Sustainiac pickup and Floyd Rose are potential #goals for much later.
    I'm getting ahead of myself. Lots more questions. ---> Help? <---

    Thank you for your time!

Why do I think I need all those effects? I don't but it was really fun to mess with at the shop. The GC guy used the 120V (which I can actually lift!) but I really don't think that makes sense for me. I live in a condo/apartment building which I guess means headphones. :/ Woo. So, 30 or 60v maybe?

    I would follow the KISS principle.

    - small hands: my case too. I use a Fender Duosonic 24" length scale. I do play 25.5 and 24 3/4 also, but the 24" is just perfect for me. Soundwise it's different. To try to compensate I use 0.08 to 0.38 on the 24" and 10's to 46's on all others. Don't think you can't get heavier sounds on thinner strings. It's basically in your hands and the amp configs!

    - amps: I use S-Gear amp sim. imho, just a few of the amp sims really mimics a good valve amp's dynamics and this one gets really close. But learn that amp sim and real valve amps are and will always be 2 different things. This amp-sim was created by Mike Scuffham who designed the Marshall JMP-1 preamp and before coding the amp-sims, every amp-sim project was designed as if it was intended to be produced as hardware/real amps

    - learn to use Volume and Tone knobs on your guitar, and learn to 'control' or shape the sound of the pus, in particular how to clean up the amp's drive ... this will lead you to learn about guitar potentiometers and capacitors

    - FXs, I would stay away, specially in the beginning years. Learn one by one, probably Reverb. Same for Floyds and Sustainiac

    - don't fall on the trap on spending too much time on things like: different woods, bolt-on vs neck through body, thousand of different pus, etc

    - books: Ross Bolton Funk Guitar and Chris Hunt funk guitar books in order to get your rhythm tight

    - songs and in particular studies focusing in one technique. Videos from GuitarMasterClass website are very good for that

    - theory: understanding it is the easy part. knowing it (eg. applying it) takes time. learn to differentiate both stages are crucial

    - learn to use a DAW and record yourself

    - here probably the most important thing: use your ears, eg exercise to transcribe a song/study/or even a riff by ear. As consequences you'll get great fretboard visualization knowledge, will avoid asking for tabs? , etc ... I use Transcribe! sw

    I hope the info above helps in some way ... don't rush yourself, it takes time, but be consistent in your journey!

    Who knew Harry K Cody was in here? One of those great great guitarplayers overshadowed by record company policies, upvote!

    Re: Harry Cody - Second Coming

    Wow indeed, this is my favorite internet stumble in years. Shotgun Messiah was always in my top five growing up, especially Harry's playing. The good - it made me want to learn guitar, the bad - I never got close They were always ahead of the curve, loved every album especially VNB. A one off reunion show would be amazing.

    Tusen tack Harry!
