The sad tale of the SG unfolds here if you want to look:- https://12bar.de/community/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2497&hilit=gibson+sg+p90 Things were fine to begin with - it sounded good testing it out on its own.

Re: The price of playing the blues

The Blues is a great outlet for feeling, though I do sometimes wonder too at that cost of expressing pain so honestly. Peter Green has certainly had well documented problems and there's certainly some of his playing has had heartfelt feelings come through. But sometimes expressing feelings can be ca...

Re: White room improv

Thank you guys! Very sorry to hear about your arthritis, but acoustic blues is where's it's at :oldie: I picked up my V6 strat first of all because it looked stunning (see pic) and it felt amazing when I tried it. Not sure about their attentiveness to marketing (still skeptical about their choice o...

Re: White room improv

Totally agree - the tone and the playing shows you're very far from a beginner! As for mistakes, I'd rather hear a full of life and emotional piece of playing with a few mistakes, than a note perfect and too clinical performance. White Room is one of my favourite Cream tracks and you did a very good...

Sometimes being forced to take it easy can be good!

Re: The (Sad) Flower of Magherally

Thanks Ulysses! :D I've been a bit(!) sidetracked into acoustic guitars and DADGAD tuning these last few years. But the practice in blues and the help I got here have been a help in exploring the new genre / field. I see what you mean about "Greensleeves" - it hadn't occurred to me but you're right....

14 Month Stretch

So I was messin' around on the guitar and a sort of structured slightly bluesy thing started happening. I hit record. Maybe this could be developed into something, though usually when I say that nothing ends up happening! :roll: Not sure what style (if any) this is. :music1: 14 Month Stretch.mp3 Cal...

Re: The (Sad) Flower of Magherally

Thanks guys! I will happily accept smooth sadness as a style. :D

Sorry to hear about the flu - it must be a bad dose if my tune fitted the way you felt so well. Hope you feel better soon! :thumbsup:

Re: Sad new

It's sad indeed when a musician dies and the world becomes a less musical place.

I'm not very familiar with his music, but a search and listen today shows a wide range of skills on show - very talented.

Rest in peace.

The (Sad) Flower of Magherally

I've not played much guitar recently. Having completed the house move there's been a lot to do in settling in properly. Plus I've lost half an hour a day in extra commuting time. The electric guitars are in storage but the acoustics are littered around and taking up most of the space in my small hob...

:thumbsup: There's a good fullness to the clean sounds you're getting with the Zoom!

It must be a relief to no longer be frustrated by all those Win10 / Line 6 problems.

That hits the spot!

Great clear sound - very musical and nice jazzy touches too. :clap:
The dirtier sound works great too. Very fluent and fluid playing by the way. :thumbsup:

Merry Christmas. :xmas_1:

Re: Hello from Colorado

Welcome to the forum Dave. :D The move from classical to blues sounds familiar! As does the "little burned out on classical" phrase. I recall just how happy I was with moving to the blues genre where there was more freedom and possibilities for self expression. You're right about the long term. Blue...

Re: From line6 to Amplitube to Zoom...

Well found - that will make things better! :thumbsup:

Cheap with great sound and easy to control ticks a lot of major boxes!
After all your troubles with devices and computer recording it's time you got a break.

Look forward to hearing some more samples in the future. :D

Re: From line6 to Amplitube to Zoom...

A fine example of bluesy playing and sound from you in that newer clip there! :clap:

Small LCD and knobs seem to be the order of the day currently- everything as small as it can be but packed with features and multi menus!
