Re: Eric Clapton 2018 Cologne concert review

A bit of a mixed bag. A tricky thing for a set of musicians is the task of finding the groove and getting the music to take off. It must be even more difficult when you haven't played live much recently, and it must also be difficult when you've played the song so many times over the years. Good to ...

Re: MY 3 PRS Beauties (Dots, Moons & Birds)

Wow - with that sort of raging GAS it's just as well no one lit a match nearby! :yikes: Your enthusiasm comes across loud and clear and from what you say about how at one you feel with the guitars it is easy to understand that passion. Your phrase "she almost plays herself" about the McCarty model t...

Re: Windows update 1803 problems

Sorry to hear that Gerd, and I'm afraid I can't help. :sad:

I'm using Windows 7 .... and a copy with auto updates switched off too.

Hopefully someone with the same problem will come up with a workaround and publicise it so it shows up on Google.

Good luck!

Re: A Trio of Varied Genre

That's an approach to classical music you use that I like. Bringing some of the nature of blues to the genre. :thumbsup: :cool:
There's too much rules and regulations and having to play everything exactly as it is written - takes the soul out of it for me.

Re: Chicago and the Blues Brothers

Very professionally put together film - a visit to savour and that film will be a nice piece of memorabilia to keep for future reference. :clap:

Looks like a city full of character. A real mixture.

The sounds you now have on the film work very well. :thumbsup:

I've said this before several times - you do a really great job on this tuning. A special sound for the Blues and the "Highlands" folk touch on the other two - well done! :clap: Who cares about tab! :lol: Very kind of you to be so complimentary. :D The DADGAD tuning is a bit of a boon as it means I...

A Trio of Varied Genre

Hello everyone! :D Another stretch of time zooms by .... over 2 month since my last upload of music. Too much time and effort being spent in trying to move house in the last month and no signs that it's not going to be a long haul. But it needs done if I'm to retire at a reasonable age. I'm hating i...

Re: NGD Rivera Custom P-93 (3 guitars in one)

I think I got unlucky with my P90 Gibby - or maybe I chose the wrong model variation - it sounded good on it's own and I was initially happy, but I found it could not cut through the mix when playing with others or with a backing track. P90s should certainly cut through. No amount of playing around ...

Re: NGD Rivera Custom P-93 (3 guitars in one)

Lovely looking guitar and I'm sure with good P90s the sound will be great too. A great looking line up of the sisters too. :clap: I too was baffled when I played electric guitar a lot as to why there were so few P90 pickup equipped guitars around. The manager of my favourite guitar store at that tim...

Re: When is a tele not a tele

GAS never retreats too far away. :big_smile: Interesting indeed. :cool: A piezo under the bridge - something that would have tempted me if I was still playing electrics often enough to merit another one. It gives an extra range to the sounds, and I rather like the blended sounds that good examples o...

Re: NGD Vintage VS-6 Mick Abrahams Signature

That is an incredible deal you got there! :eye_rub: Vintage do make a good guitar for the money but for free makes it a great buy, especially as you have the skills to tweak it more to your taste. I've had a few Vintage electrics over the years and the standard, if properly set up, was way higher th...

Re: General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR

Obviously very sad Gerd if you have to go to the last resort, but you have to do what you have to do.

Life I'm afraid gets more bureaucratic and complicated every year.

It's also a great shame that social media has had such a big impact on forums.

Oh dear! :tears:

Ah - that does make more sense now! :thumbsup: Nice link to the Larry Coryell.

It gives a structure to the playing built into the original...
