1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Some nice stuff in there. Some very long phrases, that grooved nicely. Cool use of double stops. Refreshing to hear a clean tone... well 'cept for that little collision with the AC Booster footswitch... damn it got my attention. Perhaps consider kickin' in the OD more often as a dynamic change? of course at a similar volume level.

    Kinna different to use harmonic minor on the root of a I7 chord... as far as I'm concerned, "different" is a great thing! Hey make it harmonic minor with a #4... becomes a cool Algerian belly dancin' blues :)

    You may want to consider not playing over the vocals as much, and perhaps as a contrast, play a couple really short. simple phrases that contain 1 or 2 notes.

    Anyway... Who the hell am I to critique anyone.... jus' my opinion :)

    It worked for me! Like Harry, I enjoyed some of the passing tones that you worked into your phrasing. I really wished that the guitar was louder, though. I kinda stuck to pentatonics and the blues scale in mine, which is something that I don't really care for in my own blues wanking. Yours was more interesting!

    thank y'all so much for yer kind words, & suggestions...i, too, think the guitar needs to be louder (always, huh?) & i should have stuck to "response" phrases to the vocals more often. cheers, guys, yer responses have made my day!
