Marko claims to be digging his escape tunnel fro munder Her Thumb again. Clive's a doubtful, I think he got some Marital Earbending after last time. We'll be playing in our local rehearsal room on Wednesday anyway, with a bit of luck we'll teach him how to work his Trace bloody Elliott at last.

If the summer goes as well as I hope, I may be asking steve to book my new band a slot in March. Im finally playing harp in a band, playing a bit of guitar too, one of those fancy electric ones that Ive heard so much about these last ten years or so.

How did you get a big amp up to your flat? Please tell me that you built a machine to carry it up the stairs for you....

Nothing beats the sound of a superb guitar and amp cranked to their sweet spot, if you can't hear the wood over the effects then why bother spending hard earned dollars on top line gear, a squire Strat and el cheapo tranny amp (Yech!!Bleah!!!) will do.

Less is more, but more is still more.


I like that.

My current line up is Amp - Delay - Distortion - EQ - Tuner. But even then, i have the distortion at a minimum and really only use the delay when I switch to harp.

Now it's just guitar - fulldrive - clean amp and it sounds good. And it sounds good with pretty much any guitar you plug into it. It goes from fat clean countrified tones with my Tele, all the way to Gary Moore-type lead tones on the LP. I can get any tone I want, except for metal.

IF I were to have some effects though, I'd go for separate units. I wouldn't go down the multi effects road again.

Anyhoo. There's a guy I know in Singapore who sells boutique effects and his motto is: Less is more, but more is still more. :D You should get as many as you're happy with.

Pedal tuner, Reverb pedal (my Bassman is dry as a bone), Boost (vintage one-channel head is effected greatly), Overdrive (not distortion, more screamer like), Compressor, Wah (for soul or funk sounds)

The only one I turn off and on is my Overdrive pedal

I'll probably add a Chorus in the future

I thought it was silly to have this massive multi-effect thing that I used a single sound from, though I do miss kicking in the wah.

Ok, got a better understanding of what those gadgets can do and what sounds they can create, like Eddie Van Halen for example! I think I might keep my rig small and simple without being too extravagent!

Cheers folks, if I could do some cyber jam with any of you guys I would glady join in for some licks and riffs!!
