Re: Do you use Blues Licks to solo?

The short answer is: no I don't :D The long one might be much too long...

Often play "outside" as for example playing C...

Re: Eric Clapton struggling to play guitar because of damage to his nervous system

Recently (January 25 I think) saw him in Paris (given kinda "private gig" at the Mogador Theatre)

Good job :clap: :clap: :clap:
Maybe too much highs and maybe not enough bass (at least to my ears...)

Re: "My Heroes and me" Episode#02

The playing and sound is again at highest level. :clap: Thanks for the playing :cool: Sound :think: good guitar(s), good amp(s), good pedal board and the wonderfull Ardour DAW.

Hope you enjoy

PS:
Change name of my YT channel to my real name (yargwen) easier to manage... :cool:
