    Stole this idea from Kirk Fletcher. It's really fun to play licks that kind of "float over time", especially with slow blues tunes.

    Nice! Gorgeous guitar. I'm (by the normal standards around here) not someone who particularly lusts after new guitars but that one got me googling to see who sells G&L in Australia.

    Thanks, it’s really a sweet sounding (and great looking) guitar.

    Ha. That looks a lot my my ASAT Bluesboy. Mine's not a Tribute, and mine's solid-bodied. I special ordered it in '07 as trans orange with creme pickguard, v-neck option, with Duncan Seth Lover humbucker. While I ordered trans orange, it came out very red looking. Kept it anyway. Ten years on, it's still one of my favorites. I'll be putting it on my back and heading to Brooklyn to make horrible noises shortly.

    Congrats on the new axe.

    Sounds good easy enough..
    Only question is what effect do you have. Sounds like a bit of delay or chorus or something going on

    I have the same guitar and it never sounds that fat no matter what I do.

    As always thanks for the great lessons.

    I used a bit of delay and reverb in my DAW. Nothing else.
