    Do you keep a backup amp?

    My main amp is a clone of a mid-sixties Vibrolux. When I play gigs I always carry my ZT Lunchbox along in case the Vibrolux craps out. I also have a Tech21 Trademark 60 which I can use if the Vibrolux happened to be in the shop.

    Live looping — multiple undos?

    I also found a longer video from a performance he did at the RTL Jazz Festival, posted in summer 2013, and it looks like he was using a Digitech JamMan. But again, no observable undos... perhaps I only imagined he was doing that...

    Live looping — multiple undos?

    I found that Richard Bona has a video on the Roland/BOSS YouTube page dating from 2014 where he demonstrates and talks about the BOSS RC-30. But he doesn't undo anything, he just layers up...

    Live looping — multiple undos?

    I've recently started experimenting with looping, which has intrigued me ever since the days of Frippertronics — after seeing a live demo/concert by Robert Fripp at San Francisco State University back in the early eighties, and again after seeing Richard Bona perform a solo looping piece while...

    Band demos

    The band I'm playing guitar in recorded some demos late last summer, I mixed 'em and put them up on SoundCloud. The numbers are "Black Cow" by Steely Dan "Ain't No Woman (Like the One I Got)" by the Four Tops "Takin' It to the Streets" by the Doobie Brothers "The Power of Love" by Huey Lewis...

    Looking for suggestions on simple pieces to play

    At work we have a weekly Thursday late afternoon "happy hour" at which I have every once in a great while played some guitar, either solo or with some backing tracks, and once with a tabla player. Recently one of our newer employees asked if maybe I'd like to do a duet with her on piano. I said...

    For those of you who use windows to record, what DAW and machine do you use?

    A custom Windows 10 PC, 64 bit, with SONAR Platinum and a Focusrite Scarlett 6i6.

    Focusrite Claret, Scarlet or Ensemble???

    I just swapped out my Echo Audio Layla 3G, which wasn't behaving well under Windows 10, with a Scarlett 6i6. So far it's worked great, except that I have not been able to get a decent signal from my Line 6 POD HD in the S/PDIF input (using SONAR Platinum). Update 2/13 – I tried the S/PDIF again...

    Do Buzz Feiten Guitars come equipped with the Feiten Tuning System?

    Thanks for chiming in, Joe. Interestingly, yesterday I stumbled on a review that mentioned this issue – Guitar Aficionado's November 2013 review of the Signature Elite Pro model. Here's what it said: "Interestingly, one feature you won’t find on the Signature Elite—or any Feiten guitar, for...

    Do Buzz Feiten Guitars come equipped with the Feiten Tuning System?

    It doesn't seem to be mentioned as being featured in the descriptions of the guitar models on the website , and I've done a little Googling but haven't found anyone asking or answering this question so far. Does anyone know?

    I've been listening to 20th century composers this AM(aka modern classical).

    George Crumb I saw this piece performed by a quartet I believe was called the Concord String Quartet back in '72 or '73 at S.U.N.Y. New Paltz:
