Re: recreating demoes and "demo-itis"

Yeah, but see, that reply, all typed out like that, articulate as it is but shorn of all its world weary gravitas and sense of a journey, is just a pale shadow of the original, a desiccated shell carelessly stepped upon and rendered to dust. No, I want to hear that reply as it was initially brought ...

Re: vinyl collecting ( and surrounding planetary atmosphere )

There are lots of ads on youtube now trying to get you to invest in blockchain support network companies. Correct me if I'm wrong or if there's been some new occurence in the industry, but if bitcoin banks can disappear from sight without a trace with your loot...? There's a guy I work with who back...

Re: Overdrive pedals educate me

"Educate Me!" I listen to what Tape Op gurus have to say, and listen to guys like Dan and Mick of That Pedal Show. Great players and they know a ton. (Also good to listen to if you want a change from Bob Ross painting vids for soothing banter..) Understand Guitar Overdrive Pedals [Gain, Clipping, He...

Re: RIP Eddie Van Halen

You don' t need me to tell you he changed things. That first album was terrifying in a great way. Like Hendrix, he tore the roof off what electric guitar playing had been up to that point. Thanks Ed. "That first album was unfair to everyone. Eddie's innate musical genius ears, combined with the athl...

Re: Andy Martin, Knopfler, Buckingham..who are some awesome fingerstyle players?

Fair enough, (and more power to you!) If I had to guess , I would hazard most guitarists who've played a while at least dabble with finger style from time to time. Half the time I don't use a pick myself. lot's of screwing around experimenting and working on getting interesting patterns under the fi...

Andy Martin, Knopfler, Buckingham..who are some awesome fingerstyle players?

You've seen his playing demoing pedals, amps and guitars for pro guitar shop, Reverb, and now his own demos as Andy's Demos. His demos are uniformly awesome, and I always find myself watching his right hand more often than not. He would be getting those great sounds without a pick, but playing very ...

Re: vinyl collecting ( and surrounding planetary atmosphere )

Burned up collections have been a thing around Norther California in recent years, but there is also flooding of the Russian River from time to time resulting in some soggy vinyl. Early on getting back into vinyl store owner said "hey, you ever heard of Gentle Giant? No?" He walked over to the dolla...
