    "I am a fan of Jr Watson, Rick Holmstrom, Kid Ramos and Hollywood Fats. All three get a torn speaker kind of overdrive tone.."


    Blues math at it's finest.

    That's why they call it an "unholy trinity". Because secretly it's four.

I have a 2-guitar band right now, but still love to do the trad thing w/ harmonica too--- sounds like your son may fit right in! my email is--- acblueguitar@hotmail.com

    Fretshop doesn't even know the difference between upload and download...so good luck...plus I have a F'n hangover.

    Lagavulin 16 ....meeeh... I like the Balvenie Signature better.

    And yeah...I was kinda wondering over the last week or so when this version of "As The Blues Turns" would flip.

    O.K., where did I put my shades ?

    I could barely tolerate my one trip to the IBC so I know there is no way I could tolerate the Guitar Center thing.

    The year I was at the IBC (2005 I think) Ryan & Sean Carney had a good jam going at some club. My buddy Shawn sat in some on harp. I played at a decent jam with some folks at WC Handy Hall. However a lot of clubs had wankers and holiday inn acts. I did have a GREAT time although it was cold & snowy.

    Naw. Just that youR activity seems to have spiked since becoming immobilized.

    Between your posts and the post of another friend at the opposite end of the spectrum (who works for Boeing in Seattle) I am now highly informed. :stir

    Yep Ricky I had one for a while. Very decent spring reverb and tremolo. Absolutely neutral with regard to tone and level, as far as my tin ears could tell. Just not terribly convenient, being a largish rack-mount unit. Got rid of it pretty soon just because of the hassle of having to find a place to balance it on my amp.
