This is my first attempt at recording a private jam session of mine. I know I made lots small errors, but I don't really care for now. I'll try to correct them next time. I thought that since I play almost every day at home I could record these and put them on youtube.
What do you think?
Wet Rabbit - Of Clocks and Clouds
I've just released my debut album 'Of Clocks and Clouds'. I call my music 'electronic progressive rock' but
you can judge the genre yourself. It's a concept album. The concept builds on Karl Popper's essay with the same title, and it is centered around the...
My setting are:
Sustain - All the way up
Blend - 8:30ish for a transparent sound, 9:00 for a bit more washed out fat compression
Treble - Around 11 o'clock, but I use a strat with bright pickups
It seems to me that the reasonable Blend settings are in the 8:00-10:00 range with the sustain...
Lovepedal Kanji Eternity
I've found these pedals simply bad. But the most horrible pedal I've had was the Lovepedal Kanji Distortion. The red one. No question about it. It's a failure. Even my Zoom 1010 was better than that.
I think the only difference is that you're adding the compressed signal to dry and not the other way round. Since the compressed signal is louder by default you need to turn up the mix knob only a tiny bit.
I've used many compressors (Keeley 4knob and a Diamond) in the past but finally settled on a Philosopher King. For a long time I'd been waiting for a pedal that could really sustain my clean notes and not just advertise itself as a "sustainer" which compressors usually aren't.
So it might be...
Queen weren't even at their peak in 1981. In 1986 their Magic Tour was even better. Check out Live at Wembley or Hungarian Rhapsody from that era.
I think people from the other side of the world can't even imagine how big of an attraction Queen was throughout Europe in 1986. People think...
Besides the obvious choices here are some of my favourites:
Pink Floyd - Marooned
Tori Amos - The Waitress live version (circa '98-'00 with Matt Chamberlain on drums)
Mike Oldfield - The Songs of Distant Earth
Gabor Szabo - Country Illusion
In my search for the perfect Gilmourish tone I've found the
v3, HP mode, drive at 8:00, volume slightly above unity gain stacked after a Pigtronix Philosopher King (sustain at max, mix at 8:30, volume at unity). It's the perfect Gilmourish tone with a Strat.
Tried the following...
