Re: Loss and Emptiness

No problem Mark, we all have to deal with real life! On the same LP, Larry offered his own version of the Pavane for a dead Princess (Ravel) still on a steel string guitar, another jewel!
Have a nice summer too!

Re: Loss and Emptiness

Oups! wrong spelling! I would write Marin Marais! Sorry :shy:
Marin Marie is a french painter (mainly sea landscape and boats).
Robert de Visée might played on steel string guitar too:

Nothing better than a string verb for a spring blues... :wink: ;-) The translucent Fender's white of the mid-'50s helps a lot to name my very old Strat('59) Miss Blondie :icon_whoknows: Pluged into a '65 Deluxe Reverb and captured with a shure 57 & a Royer 121 (both not to close to the amp), each mi...

Re: My new girlfriend...

Oh Yes, build quality is as high as Lowden acoustic building standards are! Playability is just astonishing, Lollar Imperial Humbucker are just my prefered humbuckers out there. As usual I'm simply going to replace the bridge pickup (8.4) with a second neck pickup (7.6). I began to use such modifica...

Re: My new girlfriend...

Thank you bro :D I'll be in the US thru May to end of July, but a bit up North or East... Illinois, Minessota, Whasington State and maybe a short stop by Louisiana on the way back home... Anyhow, I'll certainly not bring Koalynn! There are many guitars to play over there, no need to carry mines :cool:

Ain't no excuses, just felt in love with her!

Re: Reaper - 1st try

Since I first learn so called "classic music", I've always think Metal and even more Prog Metal are closest to classic musicc than they are to Rock and even more to the Blues! The french Metal band Gojira is an example among others... Too precisely written music to leave a place for real improvisati...
