    ...with an amp this time!

    Forget the playing...I'm all butter-fingers these days (I need to learn how to play again). It begin a bit slow but get better.

    I am more interested in the tone. ;)

    P.S thanks to the LPF friends for the backing.

    I had them before and then I took them out because I got fed up with them. I forgot how tough they are to play since they respond to every change of dynamics or incorrect fingering. The sound can be cool though.

    I use my Engl Screamer on CH1 and then hit the Xotic Ac booster at 00.54 which kills the treble a bit. Also, I lower the treble on the amp (but keep the presence at 12 o clock). I've lowered both pickups and they sounds a bit less harsh.

    They're called Barden T-Style pickups. I think that they derive from the Gatton models (or they're the same).

    Very nice tone. The AC adds some nice content without coloring the amp.
    Please post backing.

    Hi Marin -

    After about a minute into the song the tone really kicked in. Very nice!

    Hey Marin
    Nice clip, fine tone. In the past I gassed for some Barden's in one of my Strats. In the hands of certain players (like yourself!) they can be interesting and magical. One guy I always like to catch when he's in the area is Jimmy Thackery. He's got 'em in an old, no paint left Strat with a Floyd mounted to bowling ball material. Maybe some day I'll try some, if he ever gets back into production. By the way, where did the "Feel so Bad" backing come from?
    Best regards, Rick

    I am truly flattered, Sir.

    Moreover because it comes from such a tone professional like yourself.
