Speaking of tunings some electric guitars tune automatically like Peavey AT-200 for one and the the Line 6 Variax and some of Gibsons newer models have tuning features.
So here is the thing, if you can't tune your guitar yet. Its no big deal. That will come to you as you put time into it. If it was easy everyone would do it.
In my experience that means you aren't quite ready, not to buy this, but to take advantage of its teachings for this level of guitar lesson in my opinion. If you have money then it wont hurt you to watch it. But take it from a guy that knows, having too many of these guitar instructional lesson's can overwhelm.
Our likable guitar instructor Andy is playing a Dean Markley Guitar. Its shape is half Gibson Explorer and half Gibson Flying V and it just might be Darrells' signature model.
If you already have the guitar and the guitar effect-toys to get this sound then you might just be in hog heaven. That can be as simple as buying a learner amp with effects. Fender and Line 6 are two brands I recommend for their inspired guitar learning tools at a reasonable price.
Fender is or was for years and years the best tone amp. After all Leo Fender popularized the whole concept and achieved outstanding tone from the very beginning. I believe he also invented the bass amp and electric bass guitar too. Darrell didn't use a tube amp; he used a solid state circuitry amp. He wasn't looking for tone so much as punch. If you cant get his sound - which incidentally covers up a lot of mistakes - then you wont have as much fun as you should and wanted to have. Unfortunately Andy doesn't explain to us Darrells rig or his own either for that matter, to our detriment. Others do however.
