I wanted to play guitar because it sounded super cool and it looked cool, and it looked like it was going to
be super fun to learn. [MUSIC] I want more people who don’t necessarily
listen to rock to also play guitar. [MUSIC] Hey. It’s Melanie Faye and we’re checking out the the Player
Series Stratocaster. No, no.
I can’t say this. [MUSIC] I’ve experimented with a lot of guitars,
but I think Fenders are really, I think they’re geared towards people
like me who want versatility and they want something that’s really,
really comfortable, like the design of the Stratocaster is like, it’s got,
like, the contour over here. And its got like, hips and it’s just
really smooth and comfortable to play. And it’s just,
I really like simple instruments, I don’t like when there’s too many
bells and whistles and stuff. I like very a minimal design. So that’s what made me want to play it. [MUSIC] It sounds like, angelic. It sounds like heaven shining through. I just love that R&B,
gospel sort of guitar playing, you know. [MUSIC]
I guess usually the first thing I notice about a guitar is the looks. I’ve actually never seen
this color before, so that was really interesting to me. So like, something different. Playing-wise, the pickups
are really quiet, and it seems like they’re reversed line,
reversed polarity. And they’re really bright, they really shine through. [MUSIC]
I noticed the the neck is actually satin, it’s not glossed over. And I noticed it had Pau Ferro. This is like,
very very smooth wood finish. I like when it’s just
super effortless to play. Feels like I’m just playing air. [MUSIC] Advice? I think you should just be prepared
that it’s going to be a lot of, there’s going to be a lot of ups and
downs, because me personally, I’ve put honestly literal blood,
literal sweat, and literal tears into playing guitar, but
I think in the end it’s all worth it. You’ll hit plateaus and
you’ll hit roadblocks and stuff, but I think that’s just all part of the process honestly, and that’s just really a part of life. [MUSIC] Thanks for checking out the Player Series Strat with me. Stay tuned here for more videos. [MUSIC]
