Well, thats kind of part of why Im so jerked. I have an Epiphone Les Paul and a Vox Pathfinder amp. I know the amp is nothing to get excited about, so I've played through 2 different Peaveys and a Crate, and yup I sound sorta dead through all of them. As for my guitar, the guy who has the jazz band said he would love to use my guitar on his next cd so Im thinking the guitar is just fine. In fact this guy is also a luthier and gave it a good going over and said that it was fine. The guy I was taking lessons from said not to worry, just give it time and the tone will come. My problem is this: whats the difference between me fretting a note and someone else fretting the same note??? Dont tell me my fingers are acoustically dead lol.
Thanks for your interest and any ideas you come up with
