Topics I've Started

  1. Me and a few of my Gibson's

    16 July 2017 - 01:12 PM

    I joined a band earlier in the year and they wanted me to write an article on some of my guitars for their newsletter. I decided to write about the 3 in the picture (the one you can't fully see is a '57 Reissue LP Custom). Anyway, this is the shot they are going to use for the article.

  2. Any Godin fans on the forum?

    14 January 2017 - 10:44 AM

    Any of you guys tried a Godin? This year I've made a pledge to myself that I will not buy any guitars for at least a year, but towards the end of last year I picked up one of the 5th Avenue Kingpin's. What an excellent guitar it is (and made in Canada, which is a bonus too). Compared to a couple of my lower end archtops it really seems in a different league in terms of tone and I would go as far to say it's comparable to some of my higher end Gibson archtops with it's flawless action, fit and finish. Super lightweight for an archtop too!

    I checked out some of their other models and they look very appealing as well, like the Montreal and solid body Summit series (see links).

    Summit (these look great IMO)

  3. Rediscovered Black Sabbath

    09 January 2017 - 08:28 AM

    I hadn't listened to Black Sabbath in about 10 years or more for no specific reason, just kind of forgot how good they were. Anyway, was on Spotify the other week and suddenly had the urge to listen to Snowblind. What a tune - fantastic! I looked up some concerts and found this amazing one from 1970 back when they first appeared on the scene. Oddly, originally broadcast on YTV, which would never happen these days. What a great band they were in the '70's. I used to play Paranoid and War Pigs in my high school band, along with Metallica, G N' R and Nirvana songs. Good times.

  4. Neil Young covers

    25 December 2016 - 03:06 PM

    Further to suggestions of starting a Neil Young cover thread here's my cover of Southern Pacific from earlier this year.

    I don't claim to be a singer, but just a bit of fun! Hope you enjoy. Look forward to seeing other members versions.

  5. Neil Young appreciation thread

    23 December 2016 - 02:17 PM

    Despite the fact I've studied and listened to many styles of music over the years, from classical and jazz to metal and bluegrass, I always find myself coming back to Neil's records. I first discovered his music in the year 2000 when I was 16 years old having seen the well known BBC concert version of Heart of Gold and was hooked from then on. Over the years I bought every record he ever put out (yes, even Trans and Everybody's Rockin' which I find equally as enjoyable as his more well known albums). For me, On the Beach and Zuma are probably my favourites, but I also love his later classics such as Chrome Dreams II and Le Noise.

    So, I felt he deserved a thread to say 'thanks Neil for all the great albums and songs' by probably my favourite artist of all time [thumbup]

    Here's a rare version of Southern Pacific originally from Re-Ac-Tor.

    and a super rare acoustic version of LA from Time Fades Away
