    Experience Hendrix -Letdown

    Went to the show last night, had a blast. Everyone played well, even Zakk's bit was fun. Satriani and crew just destroyed. The naysaying, tan pants, blues junior playing old farts really need to get a clue.

    Jimi's secret Strat wiring?

    Hendrix was a Fender endorsee. Both Lemmy and one of his other roadies are on record saying that he received dozens of Strats at a time from Fender. He also owned around 100 Marshall tops during his lifetime. The secret to his tone is his hands and 110 decibels.

    A guy I sub for (apparently) won't sub for me.....

    I got a call early last week to sub in a previous band,as they were firing their guitarist. Told me they'd call me Monday with a date for practice. They never called, not responding to my texts. I get it if they decide to keep the guy, but not calling is totally unprofessional.

    Dave's been back in the band a long time now, and their albums and tours have done very well. Don't believe the hype.

    Smart kid. Steely Dans almost as overrated as the Grateful Dead.

    Saw VH w/Kenny Wayne last night.

    Saw them in charlotte. They were great, and dave was much better than when I saw them in 2012. I agree about the mix. It was awful.

    The Aristocrats last night...

    No pickguard. Plain maple top and reddish top. He played with a lot of clean tones this time around. I stayed after and got my cd signed, but I was over my beer limit. Bryan Beller looked at me like I was crazypants.

    The Aristocrats last night...

    Amazing. Second time watching them and they were great. For those curious, Guthrie was using 2 Charvels and a Victory amp with 2x12. The only thing I could see on the floor was a Fractal unit, no pedalboard. :D

    Gig in an auditorium with no amp miking/PA/monitors... Best config?

    Rent a pa and pay a soundguy. I'd rather lose money on a gig than put on an unprofessional performance.

    Merged Van Halen Super here. STOP WITH THE OTHER THREADS ALREADY

    Yup. I think the album with wolf was better than the last 4 with mike. His youth gives the band a kick in the pants.

    Scott Henderson and VERTEX

    You have the right to support and thank whoever you want to, and I have the right not to spend my money on Vertex's products or your albums (which now I certainly will not).
