A Couple Reminders...


Gary Emery of Marty’s Music in PA (USA) will be presenting a 45-minute guitar clinic designed for the band instrument repair technician at 12:00 PM (EST) on Tuesday, March 7, 2006. You will be able to communicate with and ask questions of Gary during the clinic by using the chat feature. See the live clinic demo for more info on how the live clinics work.

Guitar Clinic Outline:

Simple set-up - Gary's quick string replacement
Action - relief, neck adjustments, string heights, bridges and saddles
Intonation - acoustic vs. electric
Electronics - soldering basics
Typical problems and troubleshooting techniques

The clinic page will be posted on the PROBIRT website on the morning of March 7th. You will be redirected to it upon logging in to PROBIRT. In the meantime, be sure the Macromedia/Adobe Flash plug-in is installed on your computer. (If you can successfully view any of the streaming videos on the site, then you’ve got the plug-in installed.) Please contact us BEFORE March 7th if you are having difficulty. No technical support for this will be given on the day of the clinic.
