Tuning Your Guitar Accurately Is More Important Than You Think

Tuning your guitar by ear can certainly be done, but most folks do not have perfect pitch, so it’s very hard to tell if tuning is accurate without using an electronic tuner. Electronic tuners are so accurate and so inexpensive these days, it is kind of silly to do without one. With use of a good tuner, your chords and notes will sound better. And If you are playing with other players in a group, it is absolutely essential that the instruments are tuned! Another benefit of using an electronic tuner on a regular basis is that it trains your ear. You get used to hearing the notes tuned accurately and over time it becomes easier and easier for you to tell when notes are out of key. Use the eBay link below if you need to purchase one!

What’s In YOUR Garage? The Garage Fender Telecaster

On the evening of September 24th 2014, I was in my garage throwing out anything that had not been used for a while. My wife had been nagging me about clearing it out, because we needed the space. After filling over 20-55 gallon trash bags with stuff that we no longer needed or wanted, I spotted an old mildew-covered guitar case over in the far corner of the garage under some other items. I pulled it out, thinking it surely must be an empty, and that I had just left it out there years ago. I was very surprised to find that the case was heavy, as if there might be something in it. I opened it up to find that there was a guitar in it! And it was not just ANY guitar! It was a Japanese made 1989 Fender Butterscotch Telecaster! My mind was blown! I don’t remember ever leaving this guitar out in the garage. I don’t ever remember buying it! I had to have been out there since my wife and I stopped performing in 2001. We stored a lot of our old music gear out in the garage for a while. I thought that we had long since cleared it all out! This Tele did not look too bad, but it needed a lot of work. The controls were frozen with corrosion. Many of the screws were rusty. Mildew was all over it. I plugged it in, and it would not play. I took it to my studio and set up a work table and took it apart. I removed the strings, removed most of the parts from the body and cleaned off all the mildew. I took apart the controls, cleaned and lubricated them. Then I re-soldered many of the solder contacts. Next, I carefully re-assembled it. Once I got it back together, restrung and set up, it was beautiful! Next, I plugged it in for a test run. This guitar sounded good on every genre of music that I played with it! It also has an easy feel, and fingering on it is a dream! Please check out the YouTube video that I produced on it. The Garage Tele, or What’s In YOUR Garage???! Thanks for checking out my blog! 🙂
