Re: new guitar is here

      Very nice Guitars and an even better looking pad you have there, or is it a castle? Going by that massive fireplace oozing out in the pics and outdoing the guitars in the shoot along with the dream kitchen. Your ace on the camera. Great pics...dont mind grumpy old me, but for sheer cuteness my old cheapo 60's "KAY Audition"  Woolworths Jap guitar sure beats those two on looks and it dont sound too bad either on a cheapo Fender amp without all the overdubbed effects the whiz kids use today...makes me wonder is it really them playing. Being myself a learner on the guitar and the  only guitarists who first dented an impression on  me are Hank Marvin and Jimi Hendrix.... the rest are inbetweeners. Still waiting on any G  sounds to outdo the originals. What do you think...1958  "Move it" Boring old Cliff...Fantastic... equalled or beat anything Elvis ever did.

Re: Another one for Dan and fellow guitarists

Been mucking about with a boss micro BR,  a tiny digital 4 track not much bigger than an i-phone with a built in mic. Here's a song I wrote probably at the same time as I had the idea for this website as it covers similar ideas about loss of traditions, folklore mythology etc - it was a poem for long before that. Just guitar and bass was originally just an acoustic song in double drop d tuning.

not quite pro recording but not bad for a tiny machine you can put in your pocket, might add a boran drum to it at some point

Re: SoundCloud.

Thats a new web site to  me, never knew it was there til I clicked on your link. Good singing and smooth guitar. Sounded good on my laptop even. All those people you can follow on SoundCloud. Dont know what follow means yet below the pics. I've not tinkered long enough...but hope to get the hang of using Sound-Cloud. Everybody on this page of yours are good players....I'm just going over to kick my amp.

Re: Another one for Dan and fellow guitarists

Only just started to use this website as well viking, got the nod from a fellow musician in Glasgow, so not sure how it all works - although easy to upload tunes without video, only joined to stick up this tune but it seems pretty good.

Hi, Can anybody who knows about guitar pedals tell me what effects will a Digitech XP200 Modulator give me?

  ( Never bought it anyway as there was no power pack with it and these dont run on a 9v battery.)

Re: Another one for Dan and fellow guitarists

Apologies, been away for a while, digitech are great effects, but hardly use effects, roland/boss are great but swear by Marshal bluesbreaker and echohead pleadal(s) combined with marshall amp: covers most vintage tones.

Thanks Dan,  I'll take a note of those two pedal names.

Re: Another one for Dan and fellow guitarists

Hi,
     Another rubbish song wins the Euro song contest sounding like the film Titanics theme song going to the deep. The real winners were Macedonia.....better singer better musicians Only my opinion. What a farce..killing all the birds and strays in a city to front fuck knows what.! Save some starving kids, with all the razzamataz spent on bilge. What at a waste of money on a bunch of wasters. But thats only my opinion. Get  real.....where has the spirit of the 1960's gone?
