   How To Reduce Feedback When You Play


   If you've performed live on stage or even a casual jam with your              friends at band practice -- one of the most annoying things guitarists        have is a thing called FEEDBACK!

   If you don't know what feedback is -- it's that terrible high pitched          sound that comes from speakers.

   It usually happens when you place your microphone too close to              the speaker or play your guitar directly in front of the amplifier.

  Not only does this damage your ears, but it puts your audience             off when they come to hear you play!

  Now I'm not an expert on the dynamics of feedback. But I                       have performed on stage many times and have learnt a few tricks             to avoid feedback from occurring...

  The first step is to turn down your treble on your amplifier. Too               much treble invites feedback so don't have too much treble in                  your amplifier settings.

  The second step is to turn the volume on your guitar up only 3/4.             Don't turn your volume up full as this is invites huge feedback!                 Always leave a little room on your volume, so don't turn it up all               the way. Only 3/4 and I guarantee you will reduce feedback at                 least 80% with this trick.

  One other trick is to turn down the gain or distortion on your amp.           When you play softly, you can turn your gain or distortion full.                 But when you start playing with some serious volume, turn your               gain only 50%.

  You will still get the same sound and distortion, but this is the trick           to avoiding feedback from occurring when you play loudly.

  Finally, if you're using an effects pedal, only turn it up 3/4 the way.         Like your guitar -- always leave a bit of leeway as it offers more               control over the sound and keeps your playing tight!

  Remember this -- if you keep control of your volumes, you reduce             the level of feedback and have a much tighter sound as an over               all band. If you turn everything up full and try to rule the world --             you'll sound a mess and out of control.

Rave Reviews for Express Guitar:


As a student of Mike Hayes since 1999, I have found his teaching methods and products to be first class. Whatever style or area of music I have been interested in, he has provided me with useful information, advice and study materials. His style of teaching and teaching products enabled me to progress through his guitar course far quicker than I ever imagined. He also helps in teaching yourself to find and develop your own style of music. Mike’s teaching gives his student’s the ability to become useful musicians, not just guitarists.

This course teaches us how to learn, how to retain, and how to recall information quickly. This entire program is built around "connected learning" with key phrases, picture words ( yes there is such a thing ) and the most dynamic personal motivator I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

The course is varied, in-depth and well-structured, making learning and comprehension fast, thorough and enjoyable. It’s a great way of learning, as you can pace yourself and move onto the next stage when you feel competent. I find this course both innovative and inspirational. I find myself leaving Mike’s lessons with the determination to reach my new goals.
