What I have been doing for the last couple weeks, is working on my reso,and trying to get some wider range in my sound! But sittin in the studio,playing I have been singing thu my Sinard harp mic, thu the harp,instead of hooking up a seperate vocal mic, its Ok for practise Right! However last thursday I picked up the extenison cab for my Valve Jr head, Before I have Been usin the valve special, Anyway did the same practise with the vocals the harp mic via valve jr. ext cab, and it sounded great, like old school ,cause thats what the guys used to use for vocals was just amps!!! But what sounds good in practice in a controled area sometims don't work live!! But I did a solo gig, Saturday night, with that set up and it sounded great, recieved a lotta comments and how did you get that sound questions, Set up, Reso Elect Tuned to open D, to Delta Blues 1/15.

Simple and effective. I wish I could pair my setup down that simple.

I make it a point to sing backing vocals through my harp mic (Green Bullet or JT30) and amp a couple times a set for variety and nostalgia.

The guys in the band have actually requested it when I forget!
