    It depends...
  1. A few months ago I found a Black Ice pick (heavy) stuck in one of my horse's brushes. The barn is 10 miles from my house & I never use a pick... True story.
  2. I've gotta agree with surfpup--I need context! My Vox AC15 sounds good hanging around the house...or maybe the homemade tweed Deluxe. If I need some volume the Demeter TGA-2.1 is nice. If I'm stranded on the hypothetical desert island (with magical power supply) it'd be the Rivera Bonehead--it's loud enough to signal passing ships. (Plus the shock wave would stun enough fish to keep me from starving...) Of course the other part of that equation is...what guitar goes with that one and only amp???
  3. Some people like to go out dancing And some people, they got to work And there's even some evil mothers They're gonna tell ya that everything is just dirt... That women never really faint And that villains always blink their eyes And that children are the only ones that blush And that life is just to die... "Sweet Jane" I've spent my life avoiding those evil mothers...the best advice ever dispensed in a rock song. Dammit I'll miss having him in the world...
  4. MY 54 BB RI, volume dimed and tone rolled way down through my Marshall Bluesbreaker, dimed. My all time favorite noise, there's something primal in that sound that speaks to a place deep down...snarling and crying at the same time. Another combo that comes from a whole 'nother place is my Epiphone Swingster w/Fender Excelsior amp. The tone puts me in mind of 40's jazz coming over an AM radio at 2am.
  5. hey girl, have you ever posted any of your tunes on here? Just curious. I remember you saying you were getting back inot it, no pressure, just was curious. I am one of two or three girls at the open mics. Chicks be under-represented in guitarmusicworlds, so I thought I'd ask. -Izzy

  6. n Izzy, Eminence makes a lot of guitar speakers-so does Celestion Eminence Speakers Celestion Speakers The speaker an amp goes through is as important to the sound as the wiring and tubes--a change in speakers can substantially change the character of an amp. You just found that out yourself with the Blackheart cab...
  7. You could try swapping out the speaker in the AC4. I swapped the stock speaker in my Fender Super Champ XD for a Eminence Ragin' Cajun and wound up with a better, louder amp. The stock speaker was decent-but now my little amp keeps up with a "sensible" drummer!
  8. Highway 61 Revisited!!! Best album you never heard of--Sweet Thursday
  9. Brian Eno--the ambient stuff. When I play it at the barn all the horses zone right out too (my horse Jack loooves Apollo)--weird but true. The other horse owners have noticed and have been asking me to bring out "Jack's boombox and mixtapes"!!!
  10. I have a Modern Classic Rosewood J-45 in Antique Natural... (Was that noise your head exploding or is the artillery range open this week?)
  11. I am a product of a 50's very mixed marriage--Asian, African/American, Native American and White (and that was Quebecois to boot)...a classic mutt! My father was a military man and we spent most of the 60's in Europe witnessing the tragic aftermath of the world enabling a bully and occasionally being bullied ourselves. My father's advice was "As long as they're just running their mouths, turn and walk away. If they put their hands on you, put their lights out...then turn and walk away. What bullies really want is that you NOT turn and walk away, that you stand there and just take it an
  12. While I really do love the pure untainted sound of fine acoustic guitars it's sometimes nice to try new things! I have a Fender Super Champ XD (a tube amp w/digital amp models and effects) and I like to use the acoustic or jazz models with a touch of reverb or delay... No, it doesn't sound authentic but I think it sounds pretty good. After a few beers I might try the metal models--it might not sound good, but I bet it wakes the cat up.
  13. Twenty-odd years ago I was where you're standing albeit in a different field (Corrections). As long as you're still working with "your" people (in your case nursing staff) as a primary or shift supervisor it's wonderful--you get to make all those decisions that YOUR supervisors never would once you have confidence in your ability. It's an amazing feeling, like flying. But once you reach UPPER management and start dealing with people in suits who have never touched a bedpan (or worked a tier) whose only qualifications are a high-priced piece of paper and highly placed relatives and who are on
  14. To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time And I'll be happy to see all those nice young men in their clean white coats And they're coming to take me away ha ha... I was a big Dr. Demento fan back in the day--anybody remember "Fish Heads"?
