    Beautiful, lyrical phrasing, Tomo.

    What guitar were you playing? Is this the Fuchs clean channel? Neck or Bridge pickup, or combination?

    Thanks for your words. I like playing just melody. That's fun, not easy.

    That was my Combat "Warm" blue one.

    Fender Pro Reverb & Fender...

    Neck pickup. That's all.

    Beautiful Tomo.

    The Holmes is my hands-down favorite neck humbucker. It's great to hear one in such capable hands!

    Thank you so much for kind words. I can play all day that kind of
    melody .... If I can play a good tone, I am very happy. Even just
    one note... I can enjoy a lot. I am economy player!

    To get that tone... yes, must get to work right now!

    Try to play a one note. Then make that note beautiful and
    speak.

    It was a metaphorically phrased pun, John holmes was a 70's pornstar known for his prodigous err.. emm pick up size, just saying your tone was nice, had some "girth" to it, sweet clip Tomo!

    I didn't learn this at colloge so...

    Thanks!

    PS, Tom Holmes should make a new sweet bucker?

    That was absolutely gorgeous! Much too short, though. My ears are begging for more!!!

    That pickup has such a sweet woody tone. Very tight, almost percussive. It really shows off your articulation.

    Jesus...that sounded good! Such a short teaser clip. I was just about to go pour myself a glass of wine at my office and lean back in my chair when the clip ended. Absolutely perfect.

    Hi Harry,

    Thank you for your kind words. Just because I don't know many licks!

    I only can play simple stuff so I developed "Over acting?" dynamics.

    Your playing is also great always. Great player!

    What's cooking?

    Thank you so much! It means a lot to me. Thank you.

    Many guitar player plays great solo? So I decide to work on more simple stuff... like this just playing melody.
    Actually it's really difficult to play lyrical. I am not into too much chops and knowledge anyway. (I am not good at)
    My limitation made good direction for me.

    You may like this. My SRV strat, Fuchs 50, Bob Burt V12, Eminence Wizard.
    Just blues. Strat & Fuchs 50 clean tone

    Thank you!!!

    Thanks for checking this out.

    I haven't played the Combat "Warm"

    Pro Reverb is always great for clean tone.
