    thanx very much matte...always appreciated mucho.:AOK

    amp was my uberschall, better known as "good ol' numba 12"....
    and an uberkab(w/classic 80s & 75s).

    there was a house sm57 just slapped right in front of the cab, as is usually done at the potato. it was on a lower speaker(classic 80).
    it would have been neat to hear a little of what was going to the direct recording and move the mic around some perhaps.
    but the bass player just plugged in the mini-recorder 5 minutes before we started.
    direct board recordings from clubs are always funky.
    so, it is what it is...good times.

    thanx again & rock on!

    yep, i've used the bogner a bunch live the past 3-4 years....
    for the same reasons you mention. plus i don't really need any extra gain stuff(boost/od pedals) for the lead channel....i just use the guitars' volume & tone knobs.
    it's plently loud and covers quite a bit of ground too.

    rock on!

    thanx so much for checkin out the noise and all the compliments...
    it's always great to get feedback from fellow slingers!
    :JAM
    ahhh the octave is a killer old-school mutron octave divider that i love! i use it a bunch.
    and the vibe-ish thing is a tokai tph-1(a sleeper 70s-80s phaser...
    it's a great circuit which has feedback and depth controls, so it can do tons of sounds).

    reckless phatness!

    Hi John,

    This was truly an ear opener.
    I definitely need to practice and look into your style.
    Absolutely marvellous.

    Cheers,

    Wow! That was nuts! :AOK

    Whats the effect that pops in at 2.20 or so?

    Awesome combination of tones throughout the whole thing. And as for the sonics - I have CD's that sound worse than that. :)

    hey thanks again gentlemen for checking it out....y'all are way too kind.

    look into my style?!?! uh oh.:worried
    be prepared to pretty much practice the minor pentatonic scale.....a lot!
    with a healthy bunch of clams thrown in! :D

    rock on!

    nuts!?!? shweet! glad to know someone's understanding my impetus as far as jamming goes!
    more folks should go nuts...way too many slingers play it safe these days!
    thanx much!:)
    the effect that comes in there is my wah pedal....it's a hiwatt classic wah.
    they're a take on the old tycobrahe parapedal...hence the WHACKY sweep, which i've learned to really love.
    it's definitely different than your normal wah, that's for sure.

    as far as the recording, i just got the 2nd set that was recorded from out in the audience by "gtrwiz" chris who was at the gig(thanx again),
    so i've started to mix some of that with the board recording...and it actually sounds half way decent.....sonically.
    so more noizzzeeee clips on the way!

    jam on!

    Sounds great as always John. My buddy that I took to the Baked Potato gig a few weeks ago loved it and looking forward to coming back out. Hopefully, I'll see you again in a week or so.


    For anyone in the LA area looking for some of these chops, I have taken several lessons from John and he's a great teacher! He does a great job conveying his thought process when improvising like you hear in the clip. I highly recommend him!


    See ya soon John,
    Rick

    Wow - I just listened to it again, and that wah is certainly wacked out! Sounds a lot like a Frostwave analog filter I had a while back. That combo of tones is outrageous. :)

    Give us more! :AOK
