Upgraded my guitar pickups

I recently upgraded the pickups in my Squier Bullet Strat. I can’t believe the difference it has made. Before I had so much noise that I couldn’t use anything but 2 of the 5 pickup selections. If I tried using single coil selections the noise would make it totally unusable. Now I can use all 5 positions and as an added, unexpected, bonus, I have a far greater range of tone control than before.

Guitar Note Positions

In an attempt to help me learn how to play guitar I created a chart showing where all the notes are on the Strat and how they relate to the notes on a keyboard.

A couple of new additions

I have a couple of new additions since I last posted. I decided I should add real guitar to my tracks instead of just using virtual guitars. So now I have a Squier Bullet Strat and a Mitchell MD400 to play around with. I have a LONG way to go before I can play them in any meaningful way, but for now they are working for adding more organic sounds. The last track on the new “Silhouette” album is made with nothing but guitar, a first for me and an idea of what to expect in the future.
