Re: 2Slow V

Good Job MR, I think that this is probably one of your better recordings, nice and smooth, good tone, your not over playing it and your phrasing and feel is really good. Like I said you haven't over played it, you left a lot of space between notes and phrase's, a lot of times these slower tunes are ...

Sweet!

Re: Tell Me What It's All About

Good job Jokron, I also have a gt100, have had it for almost a year now. I use mine all the time they work great as a standalone processor direct to a pa or recording setup or as a pedal board in front of your amp, so much stuff that you can do and program, lots of fun! You need to check out boss gt...

Wheres My Keys

Hey Guys Day after a busy Thanksgiving, have the day off work, its been pouring rain all day and we stayed a way from the malls, a perfect day to play some blues! This is my take on the old Chicago Blues standard Key to the Hyway, there are a lot of versions of this classic tune out there the one i'...

Re: blues jams

Re: Boss JS8 Youtube video Project Complete

TB

good job on the video, sounds really good, didn't listen to the first one but this one sounded really good. Nice tone, nice playing, cool guitar, nice blue shirt, just kidding ! That has to be a big step out of the comfort zone to do a video and put it on youtube, very cool! Dan

Re: SuperChamp moving house

Hbl super champ is looking good, your starting to give me the bug to turn mine into a head and cabinet also, looks like a fun little project plus the benifits in tone and headroom and probably a little bit more volume with a 12 inch speaker! I've seen a few where they have taken the combo cabinet an...

Re: Thrilly

That souned good took me a moment to catch the tune but it was cool that you did your own solo over the top! Was it a backing track or did you put togeather your own backing, The lead tone was just a little brite but not bad, it still worked well with the tune. Good job, I had a tele a long time bac...

Re: Preamp Valves

VB, i'm far from a tube guru but have changed tubes in a few of my amps, changing preamp tubes dosen't require any adjustments or re biasing and they are easy to change and rechange if you don't like the results. You just need to be carefull to pull the tube straight out, might take a little gentle ...
