A while ago I posted up asking if anybody had issues with Ernie ball paradigm strings. I thought that my deadening of tone was coming from my strings but I changed my strings and I am still having the issue. I can’t explain it. My guitar just doesn’t ring like it used to. I haven’t changed my amp set up or anything. Everything is still the same. I just feel like I’m fighting my guitar to make something sound smooth and it’s getting quite aggravating. It’s not difficult to play. But I just feel like I’m fighting for the sound to come through. I am trying to practice some of the lessons slower and it literally just sounds choppy, clunky and disgusting. I said in the other forum my battery seemed fine. But could a weak battery cause this kind of problem? It’s getting quite disheartening and rather frustrating. Because when I record myself trying to put it up on the school, I literally sound like I haven’t practiced in years and I am trying to play things beyond my capability. Any feedback or advice is much appreciated!
