Slip sliding away......

Post by Blindboy »

Trying on some open tuning slide on the ancient SG... I haven't played in open tunings in a looong time. The band was kind enough to just jam in G and let me feel my way around. The ending is kind of abrupt... :roll: and it takes a bit to get rolling, but there is some OK stuff in the middle. :whistle:

Sliding to the right notes with some style there despite the lack of pratice methinks! :clap:

Very nice backing too from the band. :thumbsup:

You're right BB, Slip sliding in a great way.
I (for me) feel however that the overdrive/distortion is a bit over the top. For the remainder, great job !

What overdrive/distortion? Doesn't your SG just sound that way, BB?

Thanks for all the kind comments. :shy: There was an awful lot of hunting around and getting lost... This past Monday should prove a bit better. (I hope...) We have a gig on the fourth of July, so there should be a big crowd. I plan to actually break down and practice a bunch... :roll:

:lol: Actually that is what that SG sounds like. The pickups are not original, and are WAY too hot. :roll: I plan to get some more appropriate pickups someday, but in the meantime, over the top is OK. :cool:

I'm hoping you mean that you and Becca have a gig on the 4th?

Yep, all SG all the time. :D If anything, the PA may have been dialed in a bit too hot for the recording set-up to handle. It's a steep learning curve for us all.

This past Monday, the SG was killer! :cool:
That boy ain't right...,
