    New Boss Pedal OC-5

    I'm curious if anyone has been able to directly compare the "Poly" mode of the OC-5 to that of the OC-3. I've always been curious about the advantages of the range control in that mode (see Gilad Hekselman video below) and am wondering whether it would be worth it to splurge on the OC-5 or try...

    Why do so many singers close their eyes when they sing?

    From Mick Goodrick's The Advancing Guitarist (though applicable here): "Sometimes, if you close your eyes while playing, you can hear better. Sometimes, if you look around while playing, you can gather energy (or exchange it)."

    One Pedal To Do An Entire Gig

    Assuming the amp is a typical Princeton or Deluxe Reverb (with reverb, tremolo, and a bit of grit available), I'd go with a Line 6 DL4. . .and I'd only need/use the "loop sampler" mode.

    Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos - live 2002

    Whether it's Arsenio Rodriguez, Frantz Casseus, Albert Ayler, etc., Ribot has the ability to interpret the music of other composers/performers in such a way that shows the highest possible understanding and respect for the source material while delivering his musical personality and energy in...

    Is anyone recording old standards in a new way?

    Ben Monder's interpretations tend to be harmonically sophisticated and atmospheric: Marc Ribot brings a raw, avant-guard approach to his jazz playing: And, as stated above, Bill Frisell never disappoints:

    Non-Muff fuzz with buffered bypass?

    What's out there? I'm interested in more textural, gated, octave-y sorts of things, but any suggestions would be more than welcome. I'm aware of the following. . . Ibanez FZ-7 Boss FZ-5 EHX Cock Fight Behringer Super Fuzz Danelectro French Toast Source Audio OFD / Kingmaker

    RIP Peter Green

    One of the greats - mysterious, understated, and misunderstood, IMO. His work toward the end of Fleetwood Mac - and in the earliest stages of his solo career - pointed to a place that was combining his obvious blues and rock roots with drone music, psychedelia, and the avant-garde. I think...

    Famous Guitarists who played LP w/P90s?

    It appears John McLaughlin briefly used a modified Gibson Les Paul Junior around 1970, including some sessions and performances with Tony Williams' Lifetime:

    Looper pedals with dry kill

    The EHX Stereo Memory Man w/Hazarai can do this in "Loop" mode since the "Blend" knob shares the same functionality as the other delay modes - namely, crossfading from 100% dry to 100% wet with a 50/50 mix at noon (. . .as opposed to simply bringing in the volume of the wet/loop signal behind a...

    Homie Know How To Use His Pedals!

    Nels is great - of the generation of guitarists that emerged in the 80's and occupied the space between jazz, rock, and the avant-garde, he's the closest to a "collage artist" in my mind. Strangely enough, I don't even think about Wilco when I consider his overall style or career arc - I've...

    Frisell on Looping.

    A new interview with Bill Frisell just went up on the Line6 blog, where he talks about looping and, in particular, his use of the DL4 and EHX 16-Second Digital Delay: https://blog.line6.com/2020/06/09/bill-frisell-talks-looping-loopers/

    GFI Clockwork Delay V3 - How does it compare to Strymon, Boss, SA?

    Thanks for the insight! You mentioned that GFI units "do have their own sound" - are you able to explain how it's different compared to the Boss DD-500?
