    Hi all
    Long time lurker, 1st post. Thought I'd post a recording of me playing Robben Ford's Indianola for your perusal!
    All my own work (backing track included). Sorry for the title but I gather there's something of a bias towards Mr. Ford here.

    Be gentle with me it's my first time ;)

    Awesome playing!!! However, your file is WAY too big for that site. Slowest download on the net! I put a 192 bit version of your song on my site so you get more listens.

    BTW, what gear? Your tone sounds so close to my Mutant Bassman it's scary. ;)

    Very nice job Ron! You have some of the key Ford phrasing elements down!

    Sorry guys, should have mentioned the gear :jo .

    I'm sorry to say that there's really not much to impress here. I'd like to say a dumble and baker, but I recorded it with an Ibanez AR50 (1979) into a £90 Behringer V-amp into a PC using Cubase VST.

    I think it's a pretty nice tone. I do all of my home recording with this setup (apart from the guitar, I normally use Fender guitars).

    Thanks for the nice comments. :cool:

    By the way, if anyone wants the backing track I'd be happy to share. I have an OK BT for Revelation also that I did a few years back.

    yeeah! Great playing!

    I recorded with that Vamp type years ago.....great piece of junk with big and fat sound! I was really suprised! Btw....i'm using Native Instruments AC-Box (from the guitar-combo-series) as my main dumble-clone! It works...for 69$!!!

    wanna try? -> http://www.nativeinstruments.de/index.php?id=acboxcombo_us

    greetz and best wishes for 2006!

    Thanks, Ron! I love Indianola Blues but I pretty much rely on others for backings. Time to buckle down and learn it now. :)

    Revelation is not too bad either, but in case you haven't heard it, here's a pretty good backing...
