Play classical, rock, blues, metal, spanish, slide...

On stage usually use Ibanez (7 string RG7321 and Joe Satriani signature models), or a 1989 Charvel Predator with a Dimebucker pickup through a Line 6 HD500 and a DigiTech Whammy, sometimes with a CryBaby. For the songs requiring fire I use a BC Rich Warlock with pyro attachments!

Generally DI'ed straight into the venue backline, or where we need to amplify - generally Marshall heads through Laney 4x10s.

The search term you need is "tuner" :-)

comment Which note or chord is this
Could be anything. Will depend on his tuning. In any case this is very localised. VTC.

I don't really think this is a useful question- a quick check on google play will give you more than five that will work.

Hi Sinekonata, welcome to the site. This question is off topic here, have a look at the FAQ for guidance on asking questions.

comment What should I look for in a ukulele amp
If you don't know how amps work - get a standard guitar amp. It will be good.

comment website with jazz guitar chords and photos of hands?
What problems are you having? There are a large number of chord sites I have seen, and they are all perfectly serviceable, offering inversions, search functions etc.

comment Four-chord songs with more than four chords
If you play a CEG chord, there are lots of C's, E's and G's on a keyboard. Playing any of them together can be thought of as the same chord (just a different inversion)
