Re: Humbucker vs P90 vs Single Coil pickup

I like those sounds you're getting from the P90s. A good P90 seems to get the best of both worlds .. single coil with a touch of humbucker. :thumbsup:

Do you know what type of Alnico is in the P90s?

Re: Restoring the SG

Worth waiting for these things if it's a job done properly and that sounds like a complete overhaul and upgrade.

I hope it works well for you at the gig! :fingerscrossed:

Re: New Guitar

Congrats on the "new" guitar Kalle! :thumbsup: Useful to be buying from someone you know well - can give you more confidence that the instrument is OK. You're right about P90s filling a gap between your single coil and humbucker guitars. I don't know the brand but it looks very Jaguar / Ja...

Re: Another Trainwreck vid...

Seems to be that it's most often the bass end of sound gets lost in phone / camera recordings.

It didn't stop it sounding good though - and still lots of good guitar-ing to hear! :thumbsup:

Your drummer definitely really knows his way around this one! :clap:

Re: Acoustic Jazz/blues from a tunnel in Hamburg

I enjoyed that Carl, mellow and musical - loved the acoustic guitar / bass combo sound and the two of you sing well together too. :clap:

The location looked the part too - and looks like it would have good acoustics with that shape of ceiling. :thumbsup:

Re: Tribute to my Father

A very soulful piece of music and a fine tribute Tom! I'm sure your father would be proud of the feelings you brought into the recording. It will soon be 4 years since my father passed away early in 2013. I did find some release in playing music inspired by thoughts of him. I'm glad you found a way ...

Or could it be that all the festive eating has damaged my powers of judgement. :big_smile: We've now got the turkey salad meal to get through today, and the turkey curry meal tomorrow - one d...

Re: Valentin Danev - Christmas blues (HD)

Nothing meagre about that take Tytl! :thumbsup:

The way you slide into notes and control those bends and the vibrato is class. It also feels like there's a thought process going on and a structure given to the solo playing. :clap:

Aching Pinkie Blues in C

As I said on the recent thread by Valentin, his improv over a backing track persuaded me it was time to get the electric guitar out. The resulting recording needless to say is a slow, slow, slow blues. Not so much in first gear - I think the car is being pushed! :big_smile: I think you'll find there...

That's something well worth waiting for - a good Christmas present indeed! :clap:

The Wilkinson bridge should be good quality - all Wilkinson parts I've ever used / had have been great value for money. :thumbsup:

Not heard much of it yet - just a few clips of bits of some tracks.
