    Cracking Lush Life.

    That is super cool. Im guessing you have a chart? The chart should get you started. If you are in a combo context, I like using 3 note voicings, to leave space for others. If you are trying to learn solo style, obviously you have to come up with a fuller arrangement. One way to do it is...

    Did you say somewhere what amp you are using? Fwiw, I just got a mosky golden horse for fatter bridge tones. It not very punk but does work. SD1 as well. Or, you could grab an eq pedal. A Small board is not really any extra hassle to set up.

    How perfect does it have to be?

    I dunno. I strive for perfection and never get there. I recorded a cd with my band in the 90s. I can hear so many things I would go back and fix. Whenever I share it with people they are polite but never excited so, meh. I still like it. I dunno. Im much much pickier than I used to be so...

    Advice on Seymour Duncan SSL-1 height setup / vintage stagger string pull :(

    Sometimes, "sounds better" is just louder. Not objectively better. I lower them so that there is no magnet pull from neck pickup when fretting 12th fret. None. Yes its quieter but, wait a day and try compensating with amp volume and tone knobs if desired. I say to wait a day because, when...
