    Picked up a cheap piece of new kit this morning for a steal.
    I used a guitar that Randy(rufus leaking) so kindly gave to me.
    I have to tell him publicly that I am so appreciative that I don't
    even have words to describe my feelings. Thank you so much Randy!

    Anyway, here is the track, tell me what you think of the playing and tone. I didn't shred, I just played melodically for this one!

    I would LOVE all opinions, both good and bad!

    Excellent!!! I loved your playing...so I guess I too am grateful to Randy for giving you a guitar. Otherwise I might not be hearing this right now. ;)

    Hi Gary,

    Nice tone and playing.
    Personally I would have mixed with a tad less delay to make the guitar a bit less spacey.
    PODxt or what?

    Cheers,

    Norm,
    Thank you so much! I truely appreciate it! Randy was so kind to me.
    The amp is a $150 out the door Peavey Triumph PAG that I managed
    to pickup this morning. It is a 1x12 combo. I stuck an eq in the loop
    to take out the boxy honk that 1x12s in general seem to have to my
    ears.

    Thank you!

    Gary

    I hit it with the delay after recording the guitar with software. My machine crashed just after adding the delay plug. I couldn't recover the session and was left only with what you hear...lol... It was a one take improv, so I let it be and posted it... I would prefer a bit less "spacey" sound too but, c'est la vie!:D

  6. Nice Job Gary.

    Blazing riffs as always!

    I'm glad you're getting back the gear you need to keep jammin'!

    Great job!

    I did a take on this track a while back I thought was pretty cool.

    It's a lot less shred than your take... but it has it's own charm, imho.

    Shweet! Really enjoyed this clip and I think knowing it was a Peavey amp made it even more enjoyable for me. Way to take everyday equipment and make it sound supreme bro.:AOK

    BTW... I would LOVE to have that backing track!!

    Michael!
    Thank you so much! I dig your take too!
    I really can't afford much now and maybe for a while yet to come, but at least I have a guitar and amp... That is enough for me to be a happy camper. As long as I can play, I can be happy!

    I bow humbly in your direction buddy!
    Thank you so much... Send me your email and I will get you the backing track! It is a wicked good track! The little pedestrian Peavey is suiting me well!
