    Here is a sound sample of my rewired Tele with the Jerry Donahue lead pickup. I really like it.

    I just made this tune up a few days ago and have no idea what 90 percent of the chords are, since I can't read a lick of music, but I think it sounds pretty decent for goofing around. I just need to practice it and work on the chords and arrangement a lot more before doing a real recording, but it's okay for youtube.

    Here is a sound sample:

    Thanks!

    I hit a bunch of bad notes, and the tune is far from finished. I have some more ideas to try with it in the next few days. The webcam mic is cheap and won't let me crank the volume up on my amps very loud before clipping, even at it's lowest setting.

    I have been replacing volume and tone pots this week in a couple of my guitars and trying to get them to sound decent.
