Re: Sitting in on a friends gig

Hey Blindboy...in that second picture it looks like you got sort of a Neil Young thing goin' on... :big_smile: Actually, Neil got it from me. :wink: foxy ladies invite you to come gig with them at the local wine bar. Not so local, I drove 75 miles one way to play two songs. :roll: (and had a hundre...

Re: "My Life"

May not be blues, but it is quite cool. Not sure I could do anything with that at all. You have a pretty creative bone there. :thumbsup:

Re: Why does my guitar go sharp?

12bar and weelie are right; the wood in the neck and the top will be affected by temp and humidity far more than the strings themselves. Being a new guitar, she may settle down a bit as time goes by, too. When I take mine to town to play, there is a 3000 foot elevation difference. When I first got t...

Re: I would like to introduce you to Co-Co

VERY NICE!
Beautiful guitar. I have an Ibanez Artcore, an AF75 in tobacco sunburst. (Yours is prettier than mine :drool: ) It is a fine playing guitar. In fact, it is the one I am taking to town tonight to sit in on a friends' gig.

Re: Slow C blues Collaboration anyone?

I may have to back out. :sad: :tears: :icon_whoknows: I have gigs (I call them gigs) sunday and monday nights, and lots of stuff to do during the day (plus change strings on my Casino), and I still haven't gotten my GuitarPort to be able to talk to my Audacity.

I saw SRV a bunch of times. During "Voodoo Chile" he used to stand on his "Number One", pick it up by the neck and drop it. Made a heck of a noise through the amps. :yikes:

Re: Nitrocellulose lacquer and guitar stands

Wow, I never knew about this. :think: Maybe because I never use stands. I usually lean the guitar on my amp on stage and usually keep them in the case at home.

Re: Open Mic Blues...

Blind Boy - I've been thinking about your story and trying to visualize what was actually going on. If I have it right you were not just trying to adjust the angle where the neck joins the body - like you do with the truss rod. You were actually reshaping the curve of the wood in the neck. Right? N...

Re: Open Mic Blues...

That IS what's called "tough love" BB. Good for you - you know your guitar and don't listen to the doom and gloom merchants who'd have you taking your guitar to a tech for pretty well everything including string changes. Really like the sound of the music scene in your part of the world - there's n...

Re: Open Mic Blues...

This guy watched me loosen the truss rod, then lay the guitar face down on the floor. I put one foot on the neck/body joint, and the other foot on the middle of the neck, then yanked up on the headstock several times. Then I flipped her over, put a foot on the body and one on the headstock and yank...

Re: A Very Minor Affair - first post to the Blues Room

As a result of the discussons of guitars and tone on this forum - and as a reward to myself for getting all this gear running and my first song posted - I've been shopping on Ebay again.

Open Mic Blues...

Somehow, through no fault of my own, I seem to have become 1/2 of the host band at our local bar (guitar/keyboard). We have no songs in common, have never practiced together, and have no set list, but for some reason, it seems popular with the bar owner and the patrons. :icon_whoknows: Tonight will ...

Re: Slow C blues Collaboration anyone?

Umm, I take it I have the second verse... when I load the song into audacity, the time markers don't coincide with the ones you posted. :icon_whoknows:
It may take me a while to post up a part, my guitarPort is not speaking to Audacity for some reason. :motz:
