    Gilmour Reveals the Secret to His Tone - Boss Heavy Metal

    He might have mistaken it for a Hyper Metal, which is more muffy. Very similar name.

    Is Marshall going to release anything new ever? Looks nice, but not available in the US, and no switchable power. Anyway, custom finishes aren't a good long-term substitute for innovation. (Or...

    Dumping on fender again

    I suspect lots of people don't even research alternative brands like Suhr. Fender is what they know. They just want a Fender, and they buy whatever variant is in their comfortable price range. Others, probably they appreciate the history, and aren't interested in someone else's take on a...

    Recording with Waza Air

    Maybe this instead. You'd wirelessly transmit from your guitar to the recording interface.

    Rick Astley seems pretty cool.

    Shatner has the same take on George Takei. To paraphrase, I don't know the man. We worked briefly decades ago. Why does he keep talking about me?

    Rick Astley seems pretty cool.

    I think Moz and Marr is pretty much a "hell freezes over" situation.

    Rick Astley seems pretty cool.

    And, yes, a well done sly Rick-Roll is still hilarious to me.

    Rick Astley seems pretty cool.

    That Smiths video is fun. You can hear the entire crowd singing along. Same goes for the FF one.

    Rick Astley seems pretty cool.

    Would not have guessed he'd have AC/DC, Bauhaus and prog-era Genesis in his bag. Sounds like he's still enjoying his life as a musician.

    Michael McDonald killed the Doobie Brothers.

    I recall an interview where ZZ Top said they saw the writing on the wall, and decided to sit out the disco/soft-rock period. I think the bands mentioned above, and many others, took a different approach, adopting a different sound, remaining commercially relevant for the times, and probably...

    So... we're dicks to online creators?

    I wouldn't watch a video of Beato explaining why he did this or that with his own composition. On the other hand, I'll watch a video of Beato explaining the different compositional/recording attributes of a well-known popular song that I like. So yes, he is using short snippets of someone...

    The Cult - Electric. Tutorials for the entire album.

    Good video, there! I'm not saying Billy Duffy flies significantly under the radar, but I think he's still little under-rated. He dropped so many great rock-n-roll riffs on Electric and Sonic Temple.

    When you don't have the chops to fully and accurately get a song down for your band...

    I've heard Any Way You Want It about a zillion times. I can only recall the melodic solo bits at 2:00 and beyond. I'm sure most people are the same. If you hit the bits of the solo that casual listeners can recall, and do whatever on the other bits, I'm sure you'll do the song justice.

    Keeley HALO Andy Timmons Dual Echo is out!

    Yeah, thanks! I asked that last question before I saw your reply.

    Keeley HALO Andy Timmons Dual Echo is out!

    Thanks for the reply. I agree, it does sound very musical in all the demos. One struggle of mine with delays in general is getting them to to stay out of the way, especially when changing between clean and distorted tones. Looks like the Halo does that well.

    Keeley HALO Andy Timmons Dual Echo is out!

    Okay, I do see a comment in the manual "Use your foot to control Sides A and B, or both at the same time." Outside the manual, all I was seeing were references to switching back and forth.

    Keeley HALO Andy Timmons Dual Echo is out!

    I thought Timmons' core delay sound was two delay pedals, set to different settings, used at the same time. I'm not seeing it explicitly stated that the delays on the Halo can be on at the same time. Am I overlooking something?

    Stage Fright at home

    If you are trying to learn well known songs, and you're not practicing with other musicians, you might try playing along with a backing track once you've learned the song all the way through. Doing so forces you to play in time, and really tests your complete knowledge of the song. Once you...

    Should I cut a hole in my gorgeous new Godin to do harmonica style singing control?

    Could you accomplish this with a smaller hole, and using a plastic hose to transmit noise into the body? (I'm thinking similar to a talk box.)

    Neil Diamond isn't terrible..

    This album cover always gets my appreciation. He looks like he's balls deep in a visceral rock performance. Def not an "easy listening" expression.

    Did grunge "kill" the cover band scene too?

    Its possible the popularity of Indie music/college rock/etc resulted in a greater number of small labels, which means more small/local bands. Of course, they need a place to perform. Its possible bars hosting original bands (pulling in younger people) was more lucrative than cover bands. (And...

    Movable walls on casters for sound proofing(ish) garage (sound reducing?)

    Thanks for the replies! I don't know why, but I always love these soundproofing threads. I'm definitely not going for sound treatment. I know a lot of people use the term soundproofing, and then go on to explain what they do with blankets and egg crate foam. I understand that's just acoustic...

    Movable walls on casters for sound proofing(ish) garage (sound reducing?)

    Not sure where there thread really should live, but amps seems like a good starter. Wanted to get your thoughts on this premise. I wish I had more room in the garage to make a permanent soundproofed room-within-a-room , but I don't have enough space to make a dedicated sound proofed (or sound...
