Just Funky - Pro Reverb CJOD
Another live cut from Acton Jazz Cafe live.
Some tricky moves. Swell sounds... as usual!!!
Very cool. Wish I could play that style........WGNR.*
*whiteboy got no rhythm
Great stuff Tomo. Your touch and Clay's ear makes for some seriously great tone!
That gave me a big smile, especially the Stern/Miles quote at the beginning. I love the rhythmic developement with the double-stops also, that's some good country-funkin'! Speaking of rhythm, the rhythm section also sounds great. Are the fellow Berklee-ites?
It's friggin' AWESOME, Tomo. More about your rig, guitar, speakers, year of the amp, etc.
Thank you for your words. I don't have anything tricky... but I like to play with my tone, rhythmic motif, and some space. That example was ... soloing over just "E blues" It's very simple as changes, but it's quite difficlut to make as "one strory" instead "show and tell" you know?
Did you hear the part 1? Continued solo from part1.
Thank you very much!
Yes, you can do that. A lot of hard work toward that style.
Only difficult part is I mixed a few styles of music. You have to
learn each from roots, then put those into you and you will sound
like you. It all possible. That I believe.
I did a lot of my blues searching, hours of listening old records(when I
learn my blues). To me blues was most difficult music to really master,
it's simple but it's really deep and many possibilities to express your
feeling over even 1 chord. I am still working on my blues.
Next funk..... It's really difficult to make one riff or groove to become
as a song, it's not just pattern of 16th notes.... It's fun though...
(Everybody got rhythm inside) ....... but people don't know how to put
that thing out....
Thank you for your words!
Yes, Clay is just amazing person who cares so much about tone.
I am very happy with the CJOD. He makes many other pedals too.
We talk a lot on the phone. I wish I live close to him. Very talented guy
and very sweet person, good family man.
So you notice my riff? I always take some melodic ideas from somewhere
... and I like to make spontaneous movement over my solo... Those double
stops... I don't usually do that... but I probably heard something like Jack Mcduff
stuff in my head in that moment. I have to learn that lick myself.
Yes, that drummer was Dave Cowan ...he teaches at Berklee
Kenwood Dennard played with me quite a bit... and bassist
Katsuomi Goto.. he is really funky!
Larry Finn, another great drummer. I play with him too. I am gonna produce
his new dvd next week. I will be in NY. This will be Accelerate your drumming 4?
I've just never really sat down and 'drilled' rhthym practice like I have done lead work. But I'm going to start. :AOK
I do practice more rhythm guitar than soloing. This makes better time feek,
awaring chord changes... many ways... actually your are providing good platform for your soloing. More you practice your rhythm guitar.... your soloing will get improve as well.
Thank you for listening.
This clip was .... My Momose strat and Pro Reverb with Eminence.
My main set up is Fuchs 50 and Bob Burt 2 12 cab or 1 12 cab.
Killer tone. Most of the Pro Reverbs I've tried seem to have a loose sounding bottom end. YOURS doesn't. What kind of Eminence speaker?
Original speakers were very tired!
That clip was... using Eminence's Texas Heat and Screaming Eagle mixed.
Now I have 3 Pro Reverbs. Each one has different speaker.
You also need to re-cap with better quality caps. Phillips 7581 for more
More juice in the power stage would make some kind of intuitive sense, in terms of overcoming what I perceive to be a negative for that particular amp.
I have a 67 Vibrolux Reverb, very similar amp with 10s. Not sure if it's the 10s or if there's something different in the power stage, but it has tons of punch, especially having just recapped it with better quality caps.
Now if I can just find a set of speakers that have the growl, warmth and nasal quality of the current Jensen C10s, but without the tendendancy to fart out on the bottom end.
Pro Reverb is great 2 12 combo! I have a Super Reverb (1964)
and a 64' Vibrolux Reverb... I definitely prefer Pro Reverb than others.
I think a Vibrolux Reverb is great combo amp. 10s instead 12s... smaller size cab.... I prefer 12s tone. If you can find gold label vintage Jenson
for your 10s or try Eminence's Legend 105s. I love those.
My VR has the gold label Jensens, but they're safely stored, and I have replaced them with current Italian Jensens, which I have sense blown twice and had expertly reconed by Freeman-Tuell here in Dallas. I really don't want to use the originals, because I would end up blowing them and having them reconed, and they would be not appreciably different from the new ones, although their value would drop signicantly.
I need some 10's that I can play LOUD and can stand up to a Tube Screamer from time to time. Think the Eminences will do the trick?
BTW: I am a huge fan of the Super Reverb. I've owned FIVE (5) blackface SRs since buying a 1964 model in 1976 for $200.
P.S. here's a backline shot from 2 years ago with the Vibrolux Reverb:
That sounds great, you're truly and inspiration.
I will say, just to be snotty, I like your tone with the Fuchs better.
You should use your gold label jensen if you like that tone.
For me... it's not efficient enough for stage volume. Eminence's Legend 105
is very natural sounding speaker. If you want more bottom, then try
Eminence's Rajin Cajun. I love this sp. More bottom! Yes, it's nice to own
more amps. Great pic!
Thank you so much! You are totally right! I love my Fuchs 50. Mostly I am using my Fuchs 50 and Bob Burt cabs. Now I have 2 12, One 12 (big and small),One 10, and one 15 too!. Those cabs are fantastic! Fuchs 50 makes very warm and crisp tone. Very big sound!
For the Pro Reverbs. I had these Fenders since 1991 when I have learned about TONE more than playing. (importance of)... Fuchs 50 is the frist amp which replaced my main amp.
Thanks for your kind words.
