I know how to read a bit of sheet music, if that helps... but definitely don't enjoy doing it.Also, my gut tells me that what I am about to say will end up in the "Stupid things you've heard from others about music", but I would like to know. I get the basic idea of what a pick up s, however, I only have an acoustic, so I'm curious to know a few things about pick ups for when I get an electric.1. Are they easy to switch? 2. I'm assuming pick ups are an electric guitar exclusive thing, right? I've heard of something called a "Piezoelectric" pick up, but haven't been able to find much on what they are.
TheCrimsonSaint;2169137 said:They are easy enough, mostly just taking off some screws and knowing what wires from the PU are supposed to connect with the corresponding wires in the PU dock on the guitar body.Piezo's I know less about, but from what I do know they are some kind of non-electric thing (though you do find them in electrics from time to time) that are built into the bridge of the guitar.On time signatures, just find an orchestra composer. Also, your dislike of sheet music offends me.;)

Lolicat;2169366 said:Also, I don't get the fuss around the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album. Seems like a bunch of boring pop tunes heavily indebted to the current musical climate's ironic love of the synth.
