  1. TV theme song

    28 May 2017 - 02:32 PM

    We did this a while back. I remember us posting our favorite tv sitcom songs.

    Today I was watching Roseanne and the intro song from the first season started and WOW...a lady could do a striptease to that song [woot]

    It is really good. And we already know the theme to The Jeffersons is epic!

    post your pick! here's mine:

    I traded in my CIJ 2004 Mustang for this little gem.
    The numbers on the back date it at 1977.
    The man who came to swap was older and later he asked by text if I was happy with my amp.
    I told him I was super happy and asked if he was happy with his guitar.
    He said his neuropathy is so bad from the diabetes he can hardly feel his fingers.
    It made me realize how lucky we are to be able to fiddle and play.

    Cranked it and it sounds clean, no crackles, the tubes burn bright orange, not blue, and the cone is the original Fender 8" no dents. The thing looks babied. [thumbup]

    She's the one. Responsive and clean but breaking up with the right amount of push. I am inlurv.

  4. Trade Time

    14 May 2017 - 10:11 AM

    I've had my CIJ Mustang guitar up on CL for a while and I got an offer to trade if for an amp I'd never thought to research before, seeing as I had a monogamous relationship with Vox. Fender Vibro Camp. This one has a silver face. The man sent pics and it looks like the 70s one. I did some research, watched some vids. People like these little guys o.O

    Never played/heard one before in person.
    It sounds like a country music amp to me.
    Tone is pretty and headroom is ample.
    I generally prefer to break up at low volumes, but a quality instrument can sway me.
    You got one? You like it?
  5. When did you convert?

    15 April 2017 - 02:11 PM

    I read an article that said my generation (Generation X) is a very brand loyal generation.
    For years I've always gone for VOX amps. Everything else I'm like [-( For NO reason other than "sparkle" and the feeling I get knowing I identify with it(?) Very odd.

    A friend has been on a quest for a new amp. He is less brand driven than me. He just tries all things that may fit his style and sound. Because he's been testing out so many different brands and I've tagged along...I sort of accidentally have tried non-Vox amps [blush] Dr. Z, Morgan, Mesa...

    Turns out Fender's '57 Custom Deluxe is the greatest amp I've heard until now. And I'm considering it. Strongly.

    This is like the time when I turned to Fender after years of only playing Gibson. That, "Jesus, what took me so damn long!?!" moment.

    Do you have a moment that made you go..."Why didn't I try this out sooner, good God!?!?" (musically or otherwise)
    What was it?

    You are a dam good singer/writer, do not stop chasing your dream, let it flow thru you. Your songs touch other people, that is a rare blessing. Pour yourself into it, don't let anything get in the way of your writing, your vision of what the song should sound like, how you hear it in your head.
    Believe in yourself, trust yourself, don't let critics or suggestions plan...
