    Eric Gales & Tomo Fujita jam "Little Wing" at Eminence booth NAMM 2012

    I am playing through Eric Johnson Sig speaker. I think Eric was playing through Swamp Thang.

    Eric got amazing sense of time & harmony. Very natural!

    He loves Dom7 (b9) thing... (dim b9 M3 5 b7)

    Thanks so much! I am very easy to react what's going on so... it's fun to have conversation with Eric Gales. His harmonic sense is very far!

    I loved it. I am waiting them when they are available. Nice balance from top to bottom.

    Very nice playing by both of you Tomo!
    Please forgive me as I feel the need to address a previous poster:

    To Mr. Comealongway,
    No doubt everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but....
    "Corny assed line", "fake", "emotion is cheap" "earnest phoniness" "pedantry" <display of useless knowledge >????
    Really???

    At first I thought you were being facetious but then I checked out some of your past postings just out of curiosity and found that your posts quite often posses a similar negative vibe.

    Tomo had the class to reply to your post and was intensely professional in content. I however felt the need to add my opinion.

    Granted, there were some timing issues... Now... please post a series of your live performances. Who knows you may have a great time feel

    The gear page has always been a great place to hang, share, interact, and network with other musicians. I for one would like to keep that vibe. Perhaps you may have "comealongway" but in my opinion... a little more to go may be in order

    Harry Jacobson

    I also have to add that trying to play a duet with another guitarist in such a noisy and chaotic environment like NAMM while playing at a low enough volume to keep the "volume police" from the Anaheim Convention center from shutting you down is not the easiest thing in the world since it's like being in the middle of every Guitar Center in the world at noon on a Saturday. I did some on camera stuff at the Taylor Guitars room this year for another website and the acoustic stuff we did was a complete loss.

    Cool. I can't wait.

    Are they reminiscent of any speakers already on the market?

    Celestion gold? JBL? Jensen 912n?

    I have a princeton reverb that I was thinking of putting a 12" gold into. This EJ eminence speaker looks pretty sweet, though. Decisions, decisions.

    Thanks so much for your kind words. No problem about below. I always feel about my time, I want to improve musically speaking... I take anything to make positive so... My wife often gets mad... because I don't upset things.

    I got to go!

    Thank you. It wasn't easy place to hear things well. Even we were jamming... we played really quiet. It must be really difficult to capture acoustic guitars.

    i used an electric for the lessons but its hard to even think in such a racket much less make sense...they asked me to do a quick lesson and I didn't really have anything prepared in advance but it came out pretty well anyway (I think)



    After the lesson we had a small jam on a Prince tune that the video producer shot on his iPhone:

    I really liked it. Vintage type tone, alnico... Princeton is good with 10.

    Cool. Thanks.

    I like 10's in a Princeton as well. I have two silver face princeton reverbs. I've been playing them stereo, which is amazing. One came with a ten, and the other came with a 12. I put a celestion gold 10 into one of them. I like it a lot. I can't decide whether to change the other princeton back to a ten or leave the twelve in. I might put a celestion gold 12 in it.

    Decisions, decisions.

    And thanks for a the information that you share on the gearpage. I've learnt some invaluable things from your old posts, technique, gear, etc...

    Thanks for sharing. Cheers! :)

    Thanks for writing. Nice to own a few SF PRs! I like Eminence's Legend 105s and Copperhead or Rajin Cajun for more volume. I love those amps myself. If you can change easily like that. Very cool to have another choice. You're welcome. I love to help others. Music, playing guitar is so much fun and many choices. I am very fotunate to have this teaching job, so much rewarding, gives me a lot of inspirations. Please search my name and hope you can recycle those threads. Thanks so much!
