    Hi,

    As I have told in earlier posts, I have just bought a Yamaha Pacifica 612v. I was blown away about how the bridge humbucker sounded like a Tele when split. Just wonderfully twangy.

    Now I wanted to know how heavy I could get so I had to write a heavier type of track. I very seldom listen to this kind of music so I'm not sure where this influences come from this time. Perhaps you people can tell me?

    All guitars were my Pacifica with the bridge bucker through my Boss GS-10 using two of the Rectifier models. I liked it and it was a lot of fun doing this kind of track.

    Comments are always welcome!

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Wow, that's brilliant Mats. Great tone and playing :dude

    I sure wish you'd join the Les Paul Forum's JamZone. There are some very good players over there (not me) who would love to take a crack at your excellent backing tracks.

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    Regarding my BTs and the Les Paul forum. I don't know where to find it.
    Can you post a link?
    Then again, I'm perfectly happy with posting here at the Gear Page and I don't really know why the Les Paulers can find their way over here? :D

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Very true :D

    here's a link if you're interested, you probably have to register to access the Jamzone but it's free.
    Another possibility is if you'd allow me to post a link to a couple of your bt's over there and then you could just tune in and listen to the takes.

    Or not, whatever you're comfortable with, I just thought your bt's are so good they need to get out. :)

    Heavy! I never played anything that heavy. I don't think I could. You make it sound easy. That's a great backing too.

    Hi Jeff,

    I think you probably could. Just the way I could.
    I have found immense pleasure in trying new styles I've never really tried before. Like the c&w tracks I posted recently as well as this "somewhat heavier" track. The way I approach a new style is by listening to a couple of tracks to find an interesting starting point. They I sort of analyse the sound and try to get that right as I find that to be a major part of any style. Then I get into the idiomatics of the style and try my best to find the timing. It helps if you know how to arrange and record BTs as that's a very good way to get to know "the whole picture" and see where and how the guitars fit in.

    Just fire up this BT and have a go at it and you can probably have a some fun.

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Thank you Sir Admin! Positivism regarding my musical endevours always appreciated in all forms. Especially when other parts of my life seem to go to pieces at this time.

    Cheers,
