    Check my band (though I only have a few seconds of video 'screen' time): http://vimeo.com/gbsdetroit/laurawilkie

    Original song, "Under Appreciated"

    I am on the left side of the audio playing rhythm on this track. I didn't rate much camera time... but I'm in there. Did better than the keyboard player... he didn't make it in at all! (Ouch!)

    Gear used by me is my Line 6 James Tyler Variax USA into the Fractal Audio Axe-FX II run direct in.

    Upcoming shows listed here: http://www.reverbnation.com/laurawilkie
    You come to a show, I'll buy you a beer.

    Oh crap... don't do that! But hell, if hundreds showed... I'd see what I could do... but maybe handing some IOU's out if the mobs show up.

    And frankly hundreds of TGP'ers in one place at one time... that's sort of scary to imagine. (I kid, I kid!) I mean... imagine the possible bar brawl!! :omg (*I'd have to tell the bouncers to hand out infractions at the door as they threw out the trouble makers!) :roll

    The worst part would be the arguments about whether the mahogany bar stools had better knock down power than the maple dinner chairs...:)

    Nice tune, Scott!

    That was great playing and singing all around.

    My only criticism of you Scott, is that you need to stand near the singer next time. The guy in the brown jacket got way more screen time than you and he's not even in the band. Would it have killed the camera guy to pan your way a little more often...?

    Seriously though. That's a fantastic band right there!

    Not so crazy about the composition, but the playing and the groove is superb rock stuff.

    Yes but the guy in the brown jacket was expert at swinging that camera around so non-chalantly!

    Seriously, that was a good tune! And the rhythm track was nice and in the pocket. Not a lot of guys can do that for a whole song.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice rockin' tune. Awesome tone BTW. Are you playing a Squire Strat? If so it affirms what I found out when I was deployed to Japan back in 83. Those guitars were magic!

    I should have read his post all the way through. Was the other guy playing a Squire Strat?

    LOL. Yes, that's Mark Turner. He's a bad ass guitarist.

    I'm 'there' but didn't make the video edit cut even though I wore my nice pants. LOL.

    He uses a Digitech RP1000 into a Egnater Renegade.

    He sure is. That Squire confirmed what I found out about those guitars back in 83, The MIJ Squires were great instruments.

    Too bad about not getting to show off your nice pants though.

    Huh, so that's what a mod looks like, eh?

    Just kidding. Great track and some excellent tone. Love the HD video, too. The goldtop PRS ain't too shabby either, Scott!
