You have to fight Fenders, where as Gibsons practically play themselves.
So what you're saying is that it's unlikely I'll play a Gibson with any defined character......I guess I'm ok with that. Lol.You haven’t played the right Fender.
To play a Gibson with any defined character.... you need to put in the work.... it truly pays off when you do. Never let it play itself.
While he probably was "smacked out of his mind" legend has it he was also angry with his label and the album was a way to fulfill his contract while pissing them off/wasting their money, while killing the possiblity of him getting turned into a pop icon.Probably because ole Lou was smacked out of his mind.
He's in my "famous for no damn reason" pile.
Personally I think this makes sense. I didn't own a Strat for a long time because they just didn't feel right standing up. I decided to get over it and currently own like 10 of them. Since I find significantly better than others.I think you have to fight whatever you're not comfortable with.
I like telecasters, I'm very comfortable playing them and I don’t feel as though I have to fight it, or even think about it, just play it.
Put a strat in my hands though, and I'll be fighting that sumbitch the entire time, because I don't really like them and I'm not enjoying myself when playing it.
Same goes for a Les Paul, hand me one while I'm standing up and I'll be happy and comfortable while playing it, but hand me one while I'm sitting down and I'll have to fight it because I'm uncomfortable, don't know why, just is.
Hell, the only acoustic I have is a cheap piece of crap, it doesn't play well but I'm used to it.
So much so that when I play a nice acoustic, it feels weird and uncomfortable, which in turn makes me feel like I'm fighting it.
I don't know maybe I'm just weird, but that's my experiences anyways.
