Re: A new blonde in my life

I am familiar with Wilkinson hardware. I have used some of thier bridges on project guitars years ago. It was high quality for reasonable prices even back then. That is a good endorsement for the guitars. Looking forward to hearing more. :thumbsup:

Re: A new blonde in my life

Happy Birthday VB. And congrats on the new geetar. Looks and sounds very nice! I am not a 'Tele guy, but I used to have a G&L Asat Classic that was really a player. I just didn't like the "'Tele Tone". I wound up selling it the first time I "quit playing". :sad: (If I had thought of it, I might have...

Re: Caterpiggle Crawl...

That was the most fun I've had listening to anything in a long time- thanks Blindboy! :thumbsup: Any tips for trying to learn it (other than "have big hands")? Thank you... I am flattered by your interest. It's an alternating bass thing, C to F, then E to Am, then Am, D, G#, G. Then it repeats and ...

Re: Help! Bad GAS attack!

I guess I will have to come down off of my mountain and demo a couple of amps. :whistle: (I hate going into town) I simply can't buy one without playing through it myself. :icon_whoknows: The Champ is looking pretty good tho... I think I will borrow my brother's Blues Jr. Whatever I get needs to be ...

Re: Comfort zone/default jam

VB... some cool licks in there. I am a big fan of 7#9 chords too. (I think so anyway. I don't actually know the names of all of the chord shapes I play. :shy: ) I wonder how many players default to the key of E? My brother goes to C and does random ragtime noodles. "Guitar Shop Noodle"... I like tha...

Comfort zone/default jam

When you first pick up a guitar, or when someone hands you a guitar and says "check this out", most of us have a "default" set of licks or a "comfort zone" space that we go to automatically to see how the guitar plays and how we are playing at that that moment. Mine is more of a "space" than a set o...

Open mic blues update...

Well, we still don't have a drummer or much of a set list, but we now have a good bass player. Last Monday was pretty fun. Mike, the bass player picks up everything we throw at him and runs with it. A good bass player is a treasure! :thumbsup: My wife came down and got a few pics. She tried to get s...

Help! Bad GAS attack!

Thinking about a new teeny amp for small coffeehouse style gigs (winebar gigs :big_smile: ) Heard mention of Bugera 5W amps here, found one on E-bay that I could pick up locally for about $75. Also saw fender champ 600 for as low as $55. Anyone on here have experience with either one of these babies...

Re: Am I Missing Something with Head Phones?

I only use the headphones when using my GuitarPort. (I can't seem to figure out how to get the sound come out of the speakers, except for playback. :wall: ) I don't mind them, and it is convenient for playing when my wife is asleep, but I much prefer the sound of my amps. None of my amps have a head...

Ok, here's mine. I am not too happy with it, but I don't have much time to fuss with it. :wall:
I should have more time for messing with the recording stuff after Mayday.

Re: My Gibson ES-339

Some evenings all the creatures come out of the woods and sit in the grass outside my window listening to me practice. They think it's a summer concert series. I make them bring their own popcorn. I enjoy having an audience but these guys are tough. Nothing seems to please the possums. Some of the ...

Re: Caterpiggle Crawl...

Thanks for all the compliments, fellers :shy: I used to do a bunch of fingerstyle acoustic and bottleneck stuff about ten years ago, and let the electric stuff slide. Now that I am playing more electric, I tend to let the acoustic stuff slide. Kind of hard (for me, anyway) to stay on top of both sty...
