Yea......I'm one of this people Duck.
Just so you know, I'm a Boomer so I'm old as ^%$#.
Call me a troll?
Yet you're THE ONE that couldn't let this thread pass until you stuck your unsolicited 2 cents in it.
LMAO. Personally bro, I could care less about your adherence to "blues purity".
I disagree with you completely.
Blues is more than rehashed pentatonics and strategic slow, gnarly bends while doing your best blues face..
I suppose if he dumbed down his playing and played it conventionally, you'd approve.
This kid is a monster player. I'd rather hear his version of blues...
The first guitar I bought myself, in the early 70's was a Univox Les Paul Bolt-on.
It was actually not that bad, especially for something to learn on.
Would I want to use it today? Hell no.
The guitars TODAY are far and away better than they ever have been.
I don't like going backwards.
In 2004 I had a VHT GP3 Valvulator with the Two/Fifty/Two Power amp.
Fantastic sounding amp that I was forced to sell 2 years later when I lost my job.
Out of all the gear I've ever owned and then parted with, those 2 pieces are ones I wish I could get back.
Since I can't sing WHATSOEVER, anytime I got a singer through Fiverr, I included a synth vocal reference track to mimic what I heard in my head. It's never written in stone, it's more for "cadence" than anything.
If you want, I can send you the music file through a site I use...
Read the article.
I understand the point being made and it doesn't get me mad, nor does it make me glad.
I've played the guitar, on and off, since the late 1960's. I've had the opportunities to play numerous budget knockoffs and high end gear. I'm referring to guitars and amps.
I remember in...
I know he has. I still disagree. By calling it in, I still can't see it and I want to see it. A website "builder" would still be able to give me a ballpark look on the final product.
That said, I figure I'll just wait around for awhile until I run into a seller unloading one that suits me. It...
I'm a Carvin owner ( pre-kissel ) and I didn't purchase it new. I bought it second hand off Reverb a few years ago. It's a Les Paul style CS6. It's extremely well made and sounds as good as you would expect.
I've considered a Kiesel Zeus and have, on more than one occasion, "built" one on their...
Well, the OP wants more civility. Ok. It's not a crime to have expectations.
The OP no longer wants to support the site for what he construes as rudeness and the site's inability to monitor it. Ok. Again, not against any law to have expectations.
Thin skin? Perhaps. So what? Maybe his thin...
I was always a person who liked the sound of a Strat, but hated to play them. Hence, my choosing Les Pauls.
First, congrats on your build. The only one who needs to be happy with it is you.
It is definitely different and does have the 50's type vibe. In the end, if a guitar feels right and...
Read the post, then read it again. Definitely a bad night. I would have been angriest at the stolen guitar and I'm quite sure, knowing myself, it would have escalated into abject violence in that parking lot.
Some gigs are flat out unpleasant, but they do provide stories for later on down the...
I follow quite a bit of behind the scenes news. From what I've been hearing, China has more problems than you realize and it will greatly affect their standing and economic position.
Personally, as long as the USA continues to produce guitars and encourages start up manufacturers, there's...
I grew up in the Beatles era and while recognizing what they accomplished, I was never really a fan. I was, more or less, indifferent to them and preferred other bands from that era.
Oasis? Heard their stuff in the 90's and also read how great they thought they were. Don't understand the hype...
1976 Philadelphia Civic Center Kiss Concert.
Wasn't really a Kiss fan, but was an avid concert goer in the 1970's. It was my birthday. I got a little too wasted and got into a heated disagreement with my buddies because of it. I ended up at the Kiss Concert by myself for lack of anything else...
