    You can remedy that, you know.

    There’s a certain SG with a pick guard made from a record album that would love to see you again!

    Shreddy, you kick some awesome Azz on that SG. I am pretty sure you are doing some singin too, along with the drummer.

    Thanks Chili. Yeah, I am singing lead and drummer is doing backups. We recorded live off the floor with no click track and did a couple of vocal takes to double up the voice ala John Lennon.

    Drums were in the main room, bass rig in the vocal booth (Ampeg SVT) and the Baseman amp was in the washroom.

    I thought it came out sounding pretty good for our cheap budget.

    Good to hear from you Shreddy!
    Hope things are going well for you; if I recall you had to move unexpectedly or were having a rough go of sorts.
    Hope you get to playing regularly again soon.

    Cant listen to the tracks at work but will add to my list.

    Thanks! Things are smoothing out. I have a decent job and a roof over my head and all my guitars close at hand. Now I just need to jam with some human folk! I do get to play acoustically at the part time shop in the photo but it's just not the same as plugging in and having bass and drums.

    1st world problems I guess.:cheers:

    Helena needs new strings. Project for today at some point. Juanita the Mexican Strat is also in line for some strings. Even if I don't play that often they still gotta sound good and stay in tune!

    Normally I play Dean Markley 11-52 with a wound G. Alas the music store didn't have them. Had to settle for Gibson 11-50 with an 18 plain G. I prefer the wound G, been using one since I was 20 years old.
