I’m the opposite. I love old rack gear like only an old 80s guy can. I use them as sound manglers in electronic production. My little studio would happily accept a donation of old weird gear no one wants anymore.
I met him with Georgia Satellites when they played the Park West in Chicago in the old days. Super cool guy and a great band. Hope he recovers well. They had an all Hiwatt back line with some of the nameplates replaced with ones that said "HIYALL" in the Hiwatt font. Lol
Some are Loop Loft and some Mode Audio. Those are my main sources, although there are a lot of free loop packs around if you look a bit. None of those have been as good as LL and MA, however. Glad you liked them! Peace.
As a lifetime guitar instructor, let me say that you are plenty young to learn and you shouldn't even worry about it. My oldest student started playing bass from nothing in her mid 60s and is now in a band with guys in their 40s and she is 78. Into metal, too, I might add. I have taught tons of...
Joel is amazing. I met him in the late 90s when he was playing bars in Chicago with The Cathy Richardson Band. First time I saw him was Halloween at the Abbey Pub in Chicago, busting eight-finger chops on 'Highway to Hell.' Even had him at my place for an interview in that period and have been...
I couldn't believe it when I first learned about him. Amazing. A friend from high school who is in music publishing is friends with Martin and says he can listen to your song one time and tell you what's wrong with it. Pure pop gold.
I long ago gave up explaining or defending the GAS thing to those who don't get it. I have played for 40 years, most of those for a living, and will always be obsessed with guitars. Amps, too. Thankfully, the wife is a musician with her own GAS issues and gear pile, so I get no stress from her...

This is a new song I just released that is a different take on the blues, one that incorporates hip hop influences into the guitar-based sound. Hope you can dig it! Here is the iTunes link:
'What's Old Is What's New'
I remember every one of these ads from my high school days. Even saw Alcatrazz open for Ted Nugent in 1984. Good times. I got the Tascam Porta-One around the same time for Xmas and learned the basics of recording on that little thing. In some ways, a better, vanished time.
Hey everyone! I hope this is cool to post here. One of my gigs is that of a music scribe and I just signed on to the team producing The Official Shawn Lane Documentary. We have the blessings of the Lane family, many of Shawn's friends involved, and the support and/or the participation of a ton...
Record as much as possible. Most people play live a lot more than they track, so the studio remains a foreign environment that puts them on edge. If you do it all the time, you will get used to it and become less nervous. I love studio playing, but I have been doing it since the mid 80s and am...
