Remember notes are only half the melody. The other half is the rhythm of the melody. Soloing off the rhythm of the melody without actually playing the melody notes is a very effective soloing device.

Quick question. I’ve got a 65 reissue deluxe and the reverb has stopped working. Can you tell if something in the tank has gone bad with a meter?

my experience is it’s just better to just replace those e clips, or snap rings. Once taken on and off a few times they stretch and no longer provide a firm hold.
