    Just finished this last night-not that there's a lot to it, but I like how it turned out. Just drums (ok, they're not real), bass, and guitar. Nothing fancy or ground breaking, just stripped down, slow blues kind of along the lines of old Clapton or Gary Moore (even some Angus Young thrown in).

    Originally I planned to redo the guitar, so I just laid down a quick guide track to hear how everything sounded together, but I liked how it turned out, so I left it.

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks in advance.

    I like. I just mixed up some Bloody Mary's because your playing only cured 99% of my hangover.

    That's some big fat tone and great playing you've got going on there! :bow

    What is the setup?

    Thanks for the compliments, they are really appreciated.

    I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but I used one of the presets tweaked up a little from my Boss recorder (BR-864). It didn't feel right, but it recorded ok. The guitar was a Hamer Monaco Elite on the bridge with the treble rolled off just a bit.

    I went back yesterday and did a take with my Germino Masonette that had way better tone (IMO), but the performance wasn't there. I'm going to try a couple more times and see if I can't get a take I like, because the Germino sounded sooo much better.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks!

    I used my Hamer Monaco Elite through one of the presets (tweaked) on my Boss BR864. I'm not even sure which one I used since I didn't plan on keeping it. I tried to recreate it last night, just for kicks, and couldn't. Beats the heck out of me how I had it set up.

    I know, I'm stupid [​IMG]

    Great playing! This style and feel is exactly what I aspire to (and fall miserably short of :D). Thanks for posting this - I found it inspiring! :)

    Thank you. I have to get myself in the right frame of mind to play like that. It's a more physical approach than a technical one. Try playing from that frame of mind and see if it helps. Don't play tentatively; almost attack the notes and make it sound like whatever you just played, you meant to play. That doesn't work for every style, but that's what worked on this one for me.

    Just my $.02

    Lee,

    What is your right hand doing? You using a pick or fingers?

    Both. I also used a heavy pick, which I normally don't. I don't know that it made the tone any different, but it made me play differently.

    Nice ripping. That tone is pretty searing...I would like to hear this tune with the Germino tone!
