Do you think the Clash revolutionized the history of British Rock? In my opinion = YES Joe strummer and his friends yes revolutionize the history of British Rock, and moreover they were one of the first bands to mix other musical rhythms to rock like Punk and Reggae music Eletronica to see enough of it in various in banda music – and yes Electronic music in mid 70s and besides, they looked forward to the police, and political rulers like the lyrics, and also had many followers from tribes not only punks and rockers as regueiros and the skinhead’s .

No, some of their songs were good – London Calling, The Guns of Brixton and Rock The Casbah for instance, but they also put out rubbish like Jimmy Jazz.

They did.punk was supposed to be a joke. They legitimized the scene and garnered credibility in doing so. It sucks we got stuck with U2 and the Clash broke up.

YES they spoke the truth directly and werent affraid to say what they wanted. They used alsorts of styles of music E.G reggae on Guns of Brixton.One of my favorite bands off all time

You can’t “revolutionize” history.I think they were an important band though, yes.Not as important as Crass or Rudimentary Peni in substance but in mainstream punk they were important.

Bad idea to adjust truss rod by myself? Okay so I have already asked a few questions and have been researching all day long. This is my battle plan, when the guitar arrives (I’m ordering on I’m going to check and see if the action needs adjusting. If it is really bad and is buzzing I will take it into a local music store (I really don’t want to spend the money on that) if it is okay and the neck looks straight I will keep it as is. I’ve heard it is better for drop tunings (D A D G B E) to have 10 gauges rather than 9’s. So eventually I will probably put on 10’s if I notice the neck getting warped at that point should I take it in? Or is it really that hard to do by myself? Overall 1) I want to know are 10’s really better for drop tunings than 9’s and 2) is adjusting a truss rod a bad idea for a beginner? After buying the guitar I am tight on money and can’t afford to pay somebody to adjust my guitar. But if you say that it is absolutly the best way to go (string gauge and taking it in) I will do both at the same time. I’d rather save money and keep the strings it ships with and do any minor adjustments myself. Tell me your process when buying a brand new guitar online.
If you are a beginner, you shouldn’t worry about string gauges. The tuning you are talking about only drops the lowest string one note, so you shouldn’t worry about string gauges.When you get your guitar, take it in to your music store and ask them if they will just check it out and make sure everything is good. You probably shouldn’t be adjusting things unless you have an experienced person helping you.I’ve only bought guitars in-store, and I plan on continuing that. I just feel better about it when I get it in person.

I agree with the previous poster about string gauges. Most electric guitars come with light-to-medium gauge strings, and those should be fine for your purposes or at least until you’re ready to replace the strings. They you can try 10s and see if you like them any better.Adjusting the truss rod is something you’ll want to be able to do yourself, so there’s no reason to be afraid. As long as you twist the hex wrench in very small increments, you won’t damage the neck. If the neck is seriously curved, you’ll be better off taking it to a music store that does repairs. It’s likely your guitar will arrive with a straight, ready-to-play neck, since many guitars do. But if there’s a very slight curvature, you can correct it by doing eighth turns of the hex wrench and then rechecking the straightness. It’s when people start twisting the hex wrench like crazy that they get into trouble and break truss rods.Here’s a link to a video that shows how to adjust a truss rod, along with lots of comments from people who tweaked their own guitars after watching

okay, first things first.1.0) if the guitar you get has buzzing, then it will probably need a truss rod adjustment and then a bridge adjustment in order to remedy that. 1.1) adjusting your truss rod is a bad idea for anyone who doesn’t exactly know what they’re doing as you could strip out your truss rod nut, or even do some serious damage to your guitar. lucky for you i’ll tell you how it’s done. 1.2) first, there’s a whole ton of types of truss rods, so the tools you’ll need to actually crank the dang thang will vary. fortunately the thing that stays pretty much the same across all guitars is how you measure whether or not the neck is straight. first, tune your guitar, then fret the guitar string @ the first fret (usually e), and then simultaneously fret the same string on the last fret of the neck.this is usually around the 14th fret. be careful not to fret on the fingerboard extention onto the body. if you find this difficult you can use a capo on the first fret. the string will act as a straight edge from which you can gauge the straightness of the neck. take a look at the space between the string and the fret wire on the half way point (generally the fret wire between the 6th and 7th fret). now, if you crank your truss rod left to loosen, that space will get bigger, and if you crank right the space will get smaller. the trick is to get the string as close as you can without having it actually touch the fret wire. most luthiers use micrometers to gauge this and set it to roughly .004-.006 for light pickers, speed metal players, and jazz musicians, or for hard strummers (punk players and such) they tend to set the guitar at .008 to .012 . micrometers are fairly cheap if you know where to look, i picked up a set of 3 for 35 bucks at my local pawn shop. you can probably do this without the micrometer though because unless you’re at eric johnson level, it won’t make that big a difference. seriously, a hair from my head is .006 micrometers, and i have thick hair.2) setting your action with the bridge is also difficult business as guitar necks don’t have just one universal radius to them. a good starting point when doing this though is to try the fender strat settings. they can be found on the fender web site. (low e string being 1/8 of an inch from the top of the 12th fret wire). if you still get fret buzz or fret out during your bends, try raising just a little.3) as for the string gauge, most heavy pickers prefer lighter gauge strings, while most light pickers prefer heavier gauge. my advice to you is to get a few sets of strings and picks, and find out what works for you. being a jazz guitarist myself, i prefer light gauge ribbon wound similar to how wes montgomery plays.4) in my experience, after playing long enough and getting good enough, people just start giving you guitars. it’s happened to me more than a few times, so i don’t buy often. when i do buy, however, i take into account what i already have, and then try to find a guitar that will offer me something different. (if you have a solid body, then check out a semi hollow or full hollow arch top. if you have 3 pick ups, look for different pick ups, or maybe even 2 or 1 pick up). and, don’t forget about the virtue in buying cheap guitars too. if you find a decent one, you can do all kinds of things like setting yourself up with a jimmy page push pull pot wire job without trashing an expensive beauty. i personally like strats, telecasters, and les pauls because they wear like a pair of good jeans. the more they wear (naturally, don’t be a jerk and damage the guitar on purpose) the better they look. i’m also a fan of old, and out of production guitars that used to be sold out of sears catalogs and what not. they look cool and reek of style.
